Happiness Is Our Future
Happiness Is Our Future. We all begin like this yet somewhere along the line we forget this essential need or maybe we’re not being told, that it’s actually important. In the small kingdom of Bhutan they invented what’s called the Gross National Happiness Index as a measure of good governance. To be measured by its peoples’ sense of being well-governed, their relationship with the environment, satisfaction with the pace of economic development, a sense of cultural and national belonging. There are limits to the satisfaction, economic growth by itself provides and luckily an increasing number of people are searching to look beyond material fulfilment. There are many aspects of social life in countries as diverse as China and the United Kingdom which are falling apart, like family relations and community life. It is becoming an atomised, individualistic world. As children we found happiness in unity, I don’t believe it’s any different for us as adult.
