Living Into the Beloved Community Part 2

Living Into the Beloved Community

This episode focus on Principles 4, 5, and 6 of Kingian Nonviolence
These are:

4. Accept suffering without retaliation for the sake of cause to achieve the goal.

5. Avoid internal violence of the spirit as well as external physical violence

6. The moral arc of the universe bends towards justice.

Principles 4, 5, and 6 of Kingian Nonviolence

This episode is a little longer than some of the earlier ones because we found each of these principles had a great deal to say. We also got a little sidetracked with a discussion about the recent (January 6 ,2021) storming of the U.S. Capitol building. However the discussion did raise some good points.


I would like to apologize for some annoying technological issues. Namely that guy that appears in the upper right corner of the video. I thought I got rid of him but alas not so.

Also I said in the last episode I would try to end each episode with a short blessing but as you will see I forgot to do so.

So let me put it here:

“Sacred one,
Teach us love, compassion and honor,
That may heal the earth
and heal each other.”   

-Ojibway Prayer

We would love to hear your thoughts, insights and questions about this episode or, for that matter, any of the other ones.
