weal

A sound, healthy, or prosperous state of a person or thing; prosperity; happiness; welfare.

All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits—practical, emotional, and intellectual,—systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny.

—WILLIAM JAMES, Talks to Teachers and Students
