Chris’s search for meaning

The meaning of kindness
Our project, Extreme Kindness is in the business of helping companies become more compassionate. We are currently working with a company called, SAS (a business solutions firm) across the US to deliver a program called the Kindness Injection. This program focuses on Kindness to Self, Co-workers, Customers and the Community. We deliver an hour-long presentation to employees in the regional office and then mobilize the staff into the community to perform acts of community service.

In each of the four areas, we talk about and workshop how employees can highlight and enhance compassion. One of our strategies for doing this is to highlight books that embody this message. In my section, I am beginning to highlight, the book, Man’s search for Meaning, Victor Frankl story of his experiences in the Nazi concentration camps in WWII.

This book has allowed me to discuss how important it is for each of us to find purpose and meaning in life. In his book, Frankl discusses his theory of logotherapy, which embraces the notion that in order for humans to live a healthy, inspired life, we need to find a sense of purpose or meaning. He references service as a means of finding this sense of purpose, and this is something that has resonated with me every since reading this book. Service is such a powerful tool for taking the focus of the all-consuming ego, and pouring our energies into another. This, as we all have experienced, is very rewarding and makes us feel something many are lacking today: connection. Human beings are starved for affection in today’s independent culture and service can be the milk that nourishes us and make us whole. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is on the path of service and wants to feel more connected to themselves and those around them!
