7 Positive Life Lessons from Gandhi I believe, rather firmly believe in the Non-violence in thoughts and actions. In no circumstance or situation or state is violence physical or mental acceptable.

I condemn war and fighting. There is so much of it going on around us already, that we are just adding to the Universe’s Mental Pollution, by thinking violently too. Be it just muttering harsh words under our breath or holding grudges or holding hate in our hearts. We are sending out the wrong energy into this Universe.
