Happiness: A Story of Us
Happiness: it’s what we all want. And contrary to the messages advertisers want us to believe, we cannot buy it. So how do we find happiness?
We can start by looking at the way society is currently structured. Do our systems help all of us meet our human needs? Do they foster our sense of compassion? Is everyone treated fairly and justly? Are there widely established mechanisms for building relationships of trust?
We can also look at our view of humankind. Do we hold a positive understanding of who we are and what we are here to do?
Metta Center’s short video “A New Story of Us” answers these questions, highlighting a path to the happiness and peace we’re all seeking.
