Welcome to the October 2016 edition of the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India eNewsletter. This month we share inspiring wisdom from Paramahansa Yogananda on the life-changing practice of positive thinking.

Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda on Positive Thinking

Change your thoughts if you wish to change your circumstances. Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realise that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness.

Drink copiously of the fresh waters of peace flowing from the springs of every good circumstance, vitalised by your determination to take a positive attitude. If you have made up your mind to be cheerful, nothing can make you unhappy.

Thinking, reading, and repeating statements of truth with deep attention will help to clear away negation and to establish a positive attitude in your mind. Repeat your prayers and affirmations with deep concentration until you establish a habit of thought, until it becomes as natural for you to think in the right way as it previously was for you to think negatively.

One of the most effective ways to apply the power of positive thinking is through the practice of affirmation, and we invite you to read more about this powerful method in a special section of the YSS website.
