There’s an old Chinese saying proverb: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else” Happiness, peacefulness and emotional fulfilment are within our grasp but we need to know where and what to reach for. The overwhelming message of the world we live in is that all these personal qualities and more can be reached through the one-eyed pursuit of fame, fortune and beauty. However, the persistent finding in a growing body of contemporary research, which in fact exactly mirrors the ancient wisdom of the Yoga movement, is that the pursuit of these mundane goals doesn’t actually lead to happiness but rather, the opposite is likely and suggests that altruism — a selfless concern for others and for the community — may pay off in a way that fame and fortune etc won’t and can’t. It seems that the more we turn our focus from our individual self interests and widen our concerns to embrace the welfare of others and society as a whole the better off we and those around us will be!
