A 2014 Resolution of Nonviolence

Let’s Make 2014 A Year Of Nonviolence

We tend to distance ourselves from the perpetrators of violence, writing them off as monsters or mentally ill. But all of us have within us the potential for violence. It is human to feel anger, often the trigger for acts of violence.

Even the saints are not free of this emotion. Gandhi, once furious that his wife refused to clean the latrine, exploded at her, ordering her to leave the ashram. Gandhi described anger as a form of energy, not unlike electricity. Uncontrolled, it comes out like a bolt of lightning, destroying everything in its path. But, like electricity, it can be harnessed for good.

We all need to learn techniques for anger management and converting our anger into a catalyst for positive change.
