Thinking About 'Good'

Lately I've been thinking about and writing about the Power of Good. Doing good for others, the power of good to improve my life and the lives of others and in fact the power of Good to improve the whole world.

You see, it seems to me that religions around the world aren't able to decide on the best way to live your life, so that you have a good life and other people do too. Of course there are some special people from particular religions who do wonderful things to help other people. Jesus seems to have been one of these people. So does the Buddha.

But these two people, and others like them connect with the power of Good. Doing good for other people is a wonderful thing - it makes you feel good, it makes the person you're helping feel good and it makes people who hear about it feel good too. This is if you do good in an open hearted and kind way. If you only do good things because you have to and you resent having to do it, it won't have the good consequences for you.

I believe in keeping an open heart, and believing in the old glass half full view of life. My life has troubles, sure, most lives have troubles. But by seeing the good things in my life, and concentrating on those good things, I live a happy life.

Are you living a happy life? Are you celebrating the good things in your life? These two things go together, that's what I think. Do you believe that too? Tell me about your life, I'd love to read your story.
