On Joy; On Mudita (August 6, 2018)

. . .

K          “Simply put, the joy one feels in another person’s joy.”

J          “Happy is prosaic.  Joy is profound.  Mudita is poetic.”

. .  .

K          “My favorite example requires me to plagiarize 1000 words, no more and no less.  The digital daguerreotype says it all.  An American athlete at the Olympics is memorialized erupting and exploding in unrestrained and unbounded joy at the success of her teammate.”

J          “Nice to see.”

. . .

Bumper stickers of the week:

Schadenfreude is all the rage today, but mudita is so much more mollifying

Namaste
