Meditation on Goodness
Goodness is a means, not an end.
Who can stop the hunger for more than we deserve?
Who can prevent a jealous thought from urging us to protect our hearts?
Who can ward off all the uncertainties that disturb the mind before we decide to act?
Were perfection required to be good, all human existence would be a living hell.
Embodying love is the endless means to be good.
In each moment, love stands at our side ready to be chosen.
