Hello Spiritual Warrior! Let’s look at the beautiful impact that practicing Mudita can have on our lives.
Let’s dive into another Life Tools!
This week we are continuing our journey into a 4-part series on The Brahmaviharas, aka the Four Virtues. They are Metta (unconditional loving kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (empathetic joy), and Upekka (equanimity). When we awaken these four virtues, or “boundless abodes” in our life, we will live with greater grace and ease. We will be living in more alignment, and with a deeper connection to source.
Mudita is empathetic joy. In essence, it is rooting for someone else’s win.
Mudita follows the golden rule – treat others as you would like to be treated. We all would want others to be happy for us when we are happy – and when we are able to offer that empathetic joy back to others, we will find it coming back to us.
Mudita is perhaps even more powerful when we practice it with those that we have a grievance with, or those who we don’t like, or even those who are the recipient of something that we really wanted (for example, a colleague who we don’t care for gets a promotion over us).
When we can root for that person to succeed, when we wish them success – and mean it – that is when we are practicing Mudita.
Mudita is not an inherent trait for most people. It is a skill that must be learned and practiced.
And the more it’s learned and practiced, the more likely we are to be the recipient of the same level of kindness and empathetic joy that we gave out.
As the old saying says, “what comes around go around.”
Spread Mudita near and far, and see how your life changes as a result!
