Balancing Joy, Compassion and Idealism

The virtue of Joy (or Joyfulness) encompasses those things that we do for entertainment and pleasure. For some, it might be a devotion to sports. For others, it could be socializing, engaging in some activity of interest, or even shopping. The virtue of Joy also includes bringing Joy to others.

The virtues of Compassion and Idealism include those things that we do to assist others in need. Living a virtue-balanced life requires a balance among these virtues. A virtue-balanced life is where true happiness is found and where one can find the doorway to enlightenment.
