[selfishness never is happiness]

The horrible nastiness of the U.S. election made me think of President Hinckley's book "Standing for Something - 10 neglected virtues that will heal our hearts and homes" and I decided to reread it. How needed in the world right now are good old values and morals. I miss President Hinckley. He helped me so much in my life. When 9-11 happened, for example, his words and optimism brought comfort and peace to me. How grateful I am for him and his cheerful outlook on life.

I find it interesting that all religions seem to teach this same thing. I'm also reading a book called The Book of Joy in which Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu talk about joy and happiness and they say the exact same thing. Selfishness never is happiness. We are happy when we look past our own self and look to help and serve others.
