In our world today, we are subtly taught to focus on the flaws in others. But when we start retraining our brains to notice their goodness instead, we are actually investing in our own happiness. When we are able to notice others' virtues, we are better able to appreciate it in ourselves as well. That appreciation for goodness is what we will be practicing in this meditation.

I learned that it's conducive to our happiness to appreciate the virtues in others rather than their flaws.

Appreciative Joy
I love meditations that make me feel giddy and full of cheer 😊 When I refill myself with these feelings I can better pass them along to others. I will remember how his meditation made me feel and try even harder to be like this meditation for others in my life!

Choose to see virtue
I have the power to choose to notice the virtue in others, rather than their faults. This contributes to your happiness!

Noticing the joy that others bring in to each of our lives is an important life skill and this meditation made me feel like there is a lot to be thankful for.

Gratitude
What I enjoy most about meditation is the deep sense of gratitude I feel after. Gratitude for the peace it gives me as well as an appreciation for the challenges in my life.

Be kinder
I’ve listened to this before going to bed and I realized that sometimes we can make someone happy only by smiling to them or by holding them the door, etc. And by being kind, we get kindness back. You can be sure that tomorrow i’ll be kinder with people I meet and if I can help someone I will without any hesitation

I completely wandered off. Oh wow! Look at the shinny happy thought over there....next I know, the mediation had ended. Minimum of 2 mins to notice ( guessing ..maybe 5 mins ) and I do not have the faintest idea about the meditation. Thank you, Joseph

Accentuate the positive
“Whatever is good, holy, beautiful...fix your thoughts on that.” Notice the virtue of others.

Be the good
Reinforces my tattoo be the change. It's easy to be the change when you see the good in others

Notice the generosity
I like the concept of this meditation. It did make me realise how little generosity I notice around me - I don't know if it's not there or if I'm simply not noticing it so I'm going to put much more effort into that now.
