The Optimist’s Creed
I see the good in all people and situations.
Even though it’s still invisible in many of us,
Because everybody is a spark of the Divine,
It is there nonetheless.
And because the law of life is love and evolution,
Everything that happens serves the wise higher purpose
Of moving us and our world forwards and upwards
On the evolutionary spiral of life.
That’s why seeing something good in everything
Is by no means foolishly optimistic.
Spiritually it is realistic and sound
Because it helps to bring the good forth.
Life is basically very simple.
What we send into our world returns to us.
That’s why from now on I send nothing but love.
And because our thoughts create our reality,
My optimism is bound to come true in the end.
And so I think only of that which is good, right and beautiful
And strive to do my best at all times,
As in that case only more of the same can return to me.
I talk health, happiness and prosperity
With everyone I meet and
My faith in the basic goodness of life
Is growing so strong that nothing
Can shake it and disturb my peace of mind.
I promise myself to present a cheerful face to our world
At all times and greet everyone with a smile,
Even when I don’t really feel like it.
And I dedicate so much time on improving
My own character that I shall have no time left
For sitting in judgement over others
And criticising them.
