My kids are super happy!" a parent recently declared to me. Her
kids did seem joyful, often delighted. But they
didn't strike me as particularly nice people. Perhaps it was
because one had just called my daughter an idiot, and
was, at that moment, happily plotting to exclude her from a
game. "Great!" I replied. "Are they also kind?"
I question whether or not we can be truly, lastingly
happy--whether we can really lead meaningful, joyful lives--if we
are not also kind, generous, compassionate.
I tend to believe His Holiness the Dalai Lama: "If you want
others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy,
practice compassion." For those of you who don't buy the
Buddhist reasoning, there is also a lot of scientific evidence that
happiness and kindness are deeply intertwined.
