Right Attitude

This morning, before I left for the last portion of a three day yoga workshop, I read this beautiful reading from Paramahansa Yogananda's writings:

"Avoid a negative approach to life. Why gaze down the sewers when there is loveliness all around us? One may find some fault in even the greatest masterpieces of art, music, and literature. But isn't it better to enjoy their charm and glory?

Life has a bright side and a dark side, for the world of relativity is composed of light and shadows. If you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil, you yourself will become ugly. Look on for the good in everything, that you may absorb the quality of beauty."
