Altruistic Love and Compassion is the Key to Happiness. This was a good article. In the beginning, it sounded like they were mainly making a case for meditation. I think meditation is very important but I also believe that there are many pathways to meditation. Mindfulness thinking, positive thinking, contemplating our thoughts before we speak, thoughtfully considering the other person before we take an action, cultivating understanding, honestly communicating with others in the kindest way possible. Yes, unconditional Love and Compassion for others and ourselves is the Key to Happiness.
