Letter: 11/The Anti-Life Negative Attitudes

        beloved bhakti,
    Love.  The attitude is everything.
    Negative attitudes negate Life.
    They are good to die, but not good to live.
    Life needs positive attitudes.
    Life feeds on them.
    Because they not only make you happy but creative also.

    Once there lived an old woman, but the older she became,
the younger she felt.
    Because youthfulness has nothing to do with age.
    It is an attitude.
    And with age and its richness one can really be
younger than the young.
    The old woman was so cheerful and creative that everyone
wondered at her.
    "But you must have some clouds in your life," said a
    "Clouds?" she replied, "Why of course; if there were no
clouds where would the blessed showers come from?"

    In the presence of trouble, and there are troubles in life,
the positive mind grows wings, but others buy crutches.
    Grow wings, and do not buy crutches.
