Miki introduced this document in August 2012 in her post "The Long Arc of Commitment." As of January 2013, she is writing a series of posts on each commitment at the Metta Center's Nonviolence For Daily Living blog. In the introduction to the series, she writes:
Each entry in this series will introduce one of the commitments and offer a concrete practice to help integrate it into your life. At the end, a final entry will reflect on the paradoxes raised by having “commitments” and how we can create balance and softness in our lives at the same time as we maintain our central focus on nonviolence.The first one is Openness to Myself. Each subsequent one can be reached from the bottom of the introduction page.
