In this 28 day event we’ll be exploring the quality of mudita, or joyful appreciation.
Living with gratitude and appreciation has been shown in studies to be one of the most important factors in creating happiness and well-being. The more we are capable of living gratefully and appreciatively, the more we feel a sense of our lives being blessed.
Mudita is the traditional term for recognizing and appreciating the positive qualities and actions that bring happiness to beings (ourselves included). It begins with a desire that beings be happy, but recognizes that happiness arises from a life well-lived, rather than randomly. We thus come to feel more appreciative of ourselves and others, and this brings with it a sense of joy. Hence, mudita is joyful appreciation.
