The Goodness of Being

Pamela Begeman reflects on the goodness of our being and what it means to consent to our basic goodness [Psalm 139].

Reflection
Do you know and feel that you are essentially and deeply good, before you do or say anything?
How are you being healed, transformed and awakened to the experience of your goodness and God’s unconditional love for you?

Resources

Spiritual Practice
Make a “quantum leap” and practice the First Consent – consenting to your basic goodness.
Try to see this core of goodness in others, beyond and beneath what they are saying or doing.
