A grateful heart a garden is,
Where there is always room
For every lovely, Godlike grace
To come to perfect bloom.

A grateful heart a fortress is,
A staunch and rugged tower,
Where God's omnipotence, revealed,
Girds man with mighty power.

A grateful heart a temple is,
A shrine so pure and white,
Where angels of His presence keep
Calm watch by day or night.

Grant then, dear Father-Mother, God,
Whatever else befall,
This largess of a grateful heart
That loves and blesses all.

Avoid a negative approach to life.
Why gaze down the sewers when
there is loveliness 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 is composed of
light and shadows. If you permit your
thoughts to dwell on evil, you yourself
will become ugly. Look only for the
good in everything, that you absorb
the quality of beauty.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
From "Spiritual Diary"
Self-Realization Fellowship, 1989
The best things are nearest: breath in your
nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your
feet, duties at your hand, the path of God
just before you.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
Scottish novelist, poet and writer
God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. God is light, and love, and
unspeakable beauty, and the beauty and glory of His presence now fills
your soul. Your soul is a temple of the living God. It is filled with peace and
harmony, and joy. There are no shadows left; no dark corners. Your soul is
filled with the golden light of the presence of God Himself. All old fears, old
regrets, old resentments melt away in the presence of God.

Emmet Fox (1886-1951)
Spiritual leader, influence on the founding of AA
