We believe that if a person lives only by what our title for today suggests, we are certainly of the opinion that a person is going to be a lot happier in life’s endeavors and as a result, be far more successful depending of course on what a person’s definition of successful may be.
Lately in the main-stream media there has been more talk of class warfare, economic differential, and equitable freedoms than what there ought to be. Please allow me to espouse: The 14th amendment is the worst issue that was ever concocted in U.S. history. We say that because there are more people claiming disenfranchisement, separate but not equal, and that somehow their rights, as Americans are being trampled.
These issues of class warfare, economic differences, and equity equality are about as realistic to address as say, landing safely on Saturn. There are, there have been, and will always be such differences no matter where one lives or how long one lives. Yet, there is hope.
Our title suggests when a person is kind and doing for others, they experience a certain peace within themselves. Statistics have proven that those individuals at peace with themselves are good through and through and are far more patient in life’s situations.
We live in a society and economic structure (capitalism) that demands one being employed. Long ago I had someone say to a group of folks, “Being gainfully employed and receiving that paycheck is the best thing for self-esteem I know of…” And by looking at the state our nation is in I’ve got to say…”hey maybe there is something to that…” However, what we are trying to bring to this party is this notion:
If a person becomes employed and lives a prudent life (notice nothing said about miserly, or greedy, simply living within our means) will certainly be a kinder person who is at peace within, demonstrating patience, and being so kind and good won’t worry about that fact of life called taxes. In fact, we’d go as far as saying that if a person is comfortably employed they most likely wouldn’t mind paying more than their share of taxes.
