Often we are told how to do good. Lists and rules for such can be found seemingly everywhere. Yet, what if we approached “doing good” from the other side. What if, instead of trying to do good, we try, just for one day, simply to “do no harm.”

Ahimsa, the concept of non-harming. Try it for one day. Attempt to do no harm in thought, speech, or action to others, including yourself. Try it with a partner who will keep you honest and likewise you them. File this under the simple, but really, really not easy category.
