Satisfactions of Right Living As Bill Sees It # 254

How wonderful is the feeling that we do not have to be specially distinguished among our fellows in order to be useful and profoundly happy . Not many of us can be leaders of prominence , nor do we wish to be . Service gladly rendered , obligations squarely met , troubles well accepted or solved with God’s help , the knowledge that at home or in the world outside we are partners in a common effort , the fact that in God’s sight all human beings are important , the proof that love freely given brings a full return , the certainty that we are no longer isolated and alone in self-constructed prisons , the surety that we can fit and belong in God’s scheme of things — these are the satisfactions of right living for which no pomp and circumstance , no heap of material possessions , could possibly be substitutes .
