Dear Friends,
We often find ourselves thinking how much better the world and our individual lives would be “if only.”  If only I had a different boss.  If only I had married that one from college.  If only my talents were recognized.  If only I had finished school.  If only I were better looking.
What most needs improvement is actually our own outlook and attitude.  It is our own eyes through which we view the world.
The single best way to make the world around us a better place is to work on our own improvement.  We would love to have you join us for just that purpose.  Find the right program for where you are right now.  Please check out Mantradevi’s Flow Series below, and other programs like Mukti’s “Living from the Inside Out.” 

Blessings on your self-improvement program,
Nayaswami Nityananda

A Miracle is happening here at ananda Village
Our goal of raising $3.85 million dollars for building the Temple of Light is a mere $70,000 away from receiving a “Paid in Full” stamp.  The Temple will serve Ananda Village and the greater community.  The Temple building will include two meeting / teaching rooms, which will be used by The Expanding Light Retreat for our own programs, and by other departments within Ananda Village.

In next month’s eNotes, we will share some highlights of the 50th Anniversary week.
