Goodwill Enables Happiness

Goodwill refers to an attitude which reflects friendly, helpful, or cooperative feelings.

We tend to help and cooperate with only those who are known to us as Relatives, Friends, Colleagues and Neighbours.

What about those around us.....strangers, trees and plants, animals, birds and insects.

Do we care for them when they are in trouble or distress?

Honestly many of us ignore them as we mind our business only.....No goodwill is shown to them.

There are several occasions of this sort, that we come across in our daily life. We will study a few cases.

1) Bus Travel: When a person wearing dirty clothes boards the bus, most of the passengers express displeasure on his outward look and ask him to occupy a back seat. But this is an incorrect way of treating a fellow human being. On the contrary, if the same person happens to be a friend, you make him sit near to you.

2) Accident case: Again if the person involved in the accident is known to you, all kinds of help will be rendered to him. But the opposite behaviour occurs if it is an unknown face.

3) Puppies: Sometimes we notice puppies standing in the middle of a road and screaming for their lost mother. Actually, these young ones are looking for a kind heart to help them with care and feed. Again, nobody is bothered about this tender life and we just walk past them.

4) Birds: Many birds are fast becoming extinct from our world due to the selfishness of human beings. Take the case of the chirping and small house sparrows which are gradually disappearing from their commonplace. People ignore when the sparrows are found in their region . We shall try to help these birds to multiply in their population, by providing the grains, water, etc... to them.

So GOODWILL actually means showing compassion for those who badly need some care and attention: the help provided to such needy is actually.....God's will or Goodwill
