Pass the Passion. While many people think they should give to charity or do something to give back, thats not the only concept thats important. Its not the obligation to give back but the privilege of doing something bigger than yourself. You dont have to donate money, just time and passion. You dont have an obligation to society to find a bigger purposeyou have an obligation to your own health and happiness. And the more you value what you are doing with your mind, the more you'll do healthier things with your body.
Create Rituals. One of the reasons why church, music, and prayer can be such an uplifting experience is that the weekly rituals reinforce a sense of community (remember the idea of being individual and connected to others?). You can experience those spiritual highs by attending church, but you can also do it through other ritualssuch as nature walks with a group of people in your neighborhood or an annual trip with your family or a nightly dinnertime routine in which each person shares one wonderful thing that happened to him or her that day. Rituals also reinforce behaviors (smokers are reminded of this every time someone taps the top of a pack of cigarettes).
