Living With a Positive and Joy-Filled Attitude

Sister Namita

“Think of your mind as a garden,” Paramahansa Yogananda has said, “and keep it beautiful and fragrant with divine thoughts.” In this closing talk from the 2010 Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation, SRF nun Sister Namita shares this and other wisdom from Paramahansaji on the skills and attitudes we can cultivate in order to deal with challenges we face, improve our relationships with others, and infuse our lives with joy and positivity. As they approach heading back to their daily lives, those attending the weeklong Convocation learn that it is possible not only to hold on to but also to increase the joy they feel — and go forth, in Paramahansaji’s words, “with the courage of a hero and the smile of a conqueror.”
