In the daily practice of nonviolence our own inner accuracy is required. It can be surprisingly easy to be persuaded to adapt another’s point of view. Sometimes all it takes is the sound of a car horn blaring at us for discord to prevail and our entire practice to be momentarily lost. Someone is annoyed, they blow their horn, and now you’re annoyed. And, in that moment you can know the depth of your practice and sweetly Partner Up and course correct.

Fortunately, anytime we get pulled off course our practice can be lovingly resumed. This is what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to as a Divine Discipline.

As spiritual seekers we’re aspiring to BE the peace. We’re intending to dwell in a place within ourselves where we can experience any situation and be unmoved from our inner center of peace. We’re training ourselves to be unbotherable. We’re unbotherable not because we’re living in a fantasy world, or because we’re in denial, but because we’re focused on the Truth. When we live that way, then we can be of service to others. This is what it means to really walk the talk and live the love.

In THE PRINCIPLES OF HEALING, H.B. Jeffery writes, “… let us suppose that there is only one singer in a whole choir who has the proper note and key, and that all the rest are off key. If that one will keep to the true key and tempo, ignoring all the rest and singing correctly, they will all swing into the right way and soon be together with that one. This will happen, not because the true singer has given any attention to their lack of musical accuracy, but because he has kept his own accuracy, because he has maintained his knowledge and his expression of the principle of music.”

And so it is with the practice of nonviolence. If we can but hold our own accuracy we can shift all of those around us. This has been proven by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus, Buddha and countless others. Today I seek to add my own name to the list of those who stand firm in their practice of nonviolence by living from our own inner accuracy. I’m living in Divine Discipline and I’m grateful for the opportunity to strengthen my commitment.
