We can Cause Good to Happen

Good manifests good – we cause good to be and to happen. Technically, Jonathan Haidt described it as elevation, which is an emotion elicited by witnessing virtuous acts of remarkable moral goodness.[1] It is experienced as a distinct feeling of warmth and expansion that is accompanied by appreciation and affection for the individual whose exceptional conduct is being observed.[1] Elevation motivates those who experience it to open up to, affiliate with, and assist others. Elevation makes an individual feel lifted up and optimistic about humanity.[2] (see at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevation_(emotion))

As shared by Don Ardell, this Life Vest video demonstrates the concept in action – Enjoy!

Be Well’r,

I look forward to hearing about how you use selfish, selfless, synergy to generate All Good by creating interactions so everyone and everything benefits!
