Do you need to experience a deeper satisfaction in life? Try expanding your heart. Once we begin to experiment with different ways of helping others we may discover a wide array of surprising benefits. Helping others is always a worthwhile pursuit all on its own, and that’s how we should view it. But in reality, most formats of giving also include receiving on some level.
Helping others, whether small, unplanned acts or regular volunteering, is a powerful way to boost our own happiness. It is not only good for them and a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier, too. It connects us to others, creating stronger communities and it helps to build a happier society for everyone. People who volunteer have been found to have higher self-esteem and overall well-being.
Being a force for good in a friend’s life can help build a lasting bond between you and your friend. Performing acts of kindness boosts your mood and ultimately makes you more optimistic and positive. When you help others, it teaches you to be appreciate of what you have and will make you feel thankful for all your blessings.
There is a special kind of satisfaction that comes only through giving. It is believed that it is not possible to experience a deeply satisfying and fulfilling life without a personal commitment to contributing to others in positive ways. Karma is real. What we put out in the universe will come back, tenfold. Why not make your Karma a positive force to be reckoned with.
