Emotionally, I feel as though today is a direct continuation of my writing yesterday on happiness, but from a different angle.
Yesterday, I explored what it means to be happy. Today, I am exploring how to “benefit all”—and the answer today…is…happiness.
Let me explain. A common prayer is one of invoking “the highest good of all” or of “doing no harm”. On a practical level, how can we achieve this? I started thinking: how I am to take into consideration every detail, for every person involved in any situation, and try to figure out how that person will best benefit?? It sounds exhausting…and impossible. So, what am I supposed to wish for, specifically, for someone, when I am wishing for his or her highest good? I realized there is no way I will ever know. But then it came to me: the highest good for everyone is whatever makes them happy. Whatever makes them truly, purely happy, at 1000, on the scale of 1000 I wrote about yesterday.
And I realized also that on that scale, that “true” and “pure” happiness scale, what makes me happy is precisely the same thing that makes an earthworm happy. So, when I wish for “the highest good of all”, in the sense of all beings being happy, then I am really able to wish in a pure way their highest good, equal to my own.
I am not sure how this all fits with either the Guiding Thought, or today’s drawing…but I think it’s safe to say happiness is key.
