Ickevåldets andlighet

Om ickevåldets andlighet skriver den amerikanska rörelsen Pace e Bene:

"This spirituality invites us to cultivate reverence for God’s presence in every being.
It summons us to see the reality around us.
It recognizes that the evil and woundedness we struggle against in the world is within us as well.
It calls us to disarm ourselves and others.
It invites us to respond to fear with love more than courage.
It gathers us into communities, knowing that we cannot do this work alone.
It asks us to be willing to offer our own life rather than take someone else’s.
It urges us to slow down, learn patience, resist injustice, practice forgiveness, and plant the tiny seeds of love.
Each of us is invited to discover the prayers, rituals and practices which we can use each day to help us remain aware of this spiritual journey from fear and greed to justice and compassion.”
