I guess most people want to be happy and content with life and yet struggle to attain these qualities in a world torn apart by greed, anger, arrogance and ‘I am right, you are wrong attitude’. It sometimes even seems that being the nice guy doesn’t work and people take advantage of that.
My experience is that actually I have no choice. Being kind, co-operative, helpful is what makes me happy and contented and provided I don’t get disturbed by others not living that way, it actually works for me. It seems that there really is no point in getting disturbed by others not living this way because I then just become part of the unhappy, angry non co-operative group of people and I don’t find that very helpful.
