‘THE WAY TO HAPPINESS’ EXCLUSIVE COLUMN BY JACQUELINE WAY

STATE OF BEING

KINDNESS: IS IT OUR TRUE NATURE? The dictionary defines kindness as this: “The quality or state of being kind.”

The “state of being” is what fascinated me the most.

Science and research show us that our bodies literally react when we are kind. We get warm feelings of love, happiness, a sense of connection and life meaning or purpose. The same pillars of well-being that we are searching for on Google and Instagram.

“To feel the beautiful light, turn on from within…”

Is this just a fluke or were we designed by ‘nature” to be kind? The human ability at any moment, on any day to experience happiness and love - for ourselves - with a simple act of “being” kind to another? Could kindness be what we have been looking for? A way to fill ourselves up when we feel depleted, sad, and depressed? Could this our way out of a world that at time seems almost impossible to live in? The light at the end of a long tunnel of darkness? To feel the beautiful light, turn on from within and shine so bright that everyone around you will have to wear sunglasses to be in your presence.

I say shine bright. Let kindness be your human state of being everyday.

It’s your choice. What will you choose to “be” in this moment? ∎
