Let me put it this way. When young, I was rather attracted to the sort of hedonism espoused by the 60's generation. What I discovered eventually was that indeed nothing feels better than giving, but more than just that - it does provide a bigger sense of the self and a sense of a person's place in the world. And I'm not talking about being saintly and giving up all worldly possessions, but rather just giving of yourself whenever possible.
