We have spent centuries of philosophy trying to solve “the problem of evil.” yet I believe the much more confounding and astounding issue is “the problem of good.” How do we account for so much gratuitous and sheer goodness in the world?*
One of the greatest legacies a person can leave is a moral ecology – a system of belief and behaviour that lives on after they die.**
In the many conversations I have with people in the course of my dreamwhispering work, I encounter again and again, people who want to bring goodness into the lives of others in some way or another. It’s a wonderful thing.
As with anything that grows, we need to feed goodness, and the conversations I have show there to be so many ways. When we find ours and lean into them, we will find our imaginations stirring and doing-goodness following.
Notice the things that really energise you, find the goodness in them, make more of these times happen, grow.
