Nonviolence

“According to Ghandi, nonviolence does not imply a mere abstention from acts of aggression; it is a profound attitude of the heart, involving the whole person in a continuous spiritual exercise.”  That “continuous spiritual exercise” is The Point of Power Practice. By choosing response over reaction again and again we integrate those parts of our personality that were originally rejected and repressed into our personal shadow. This “shadow work” is also a key aspect of expressing life as a continuous meditation. In this way the violence of reaction is transformed into the nonviolent compassion of responding to life as it is. We become the ultimate realist.
