As a young girl living in the Integral Yoga Ashram over twenty-nine years ago, meditating three times a day, eating vegetarian food and living among renunciates, Swami Satchidanada said to me, “Now you are under my wing.”  I am continually blessed with the memory of his teachings and the times when he spoke specifically to me.

The Optimist’s Creed: 

Promise Yourself…

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To remind your friends they are worthwhile.

To look at the sunny side of everything.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
