Goodness for me boils down to consequentialism; we should always strive to act in such a way as to bring about the greatest benefit, not just for ourselves but for others and for the world around us.

“Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained.” – Lao Tzu

Climate change. Homelessness. Poverty. Addiction. Food security. Social isolation. Inequality. Pandemics. As Canada and the world grapple with today’s seemingly insurmountable challenges I see goodness as the ability to envision a better future in the face of fear and uncertainty. It is a commitment to innovate where we see true need and potential to create meaningful, lasting, positive social change.

A commitment to listening to the voice in your head that let’s you know you are being at least half- decent but striving to always be decent and not needing that voice as much to know goodness when you see it.

I believe Goodness means practicing empathy to be able to extend into the other person’s shoes so that you can behave and take action with kindess at it’s core.

Some practical combination of responsibility, empathy, and a sense of justice.

Béatrice Marais

The first step on the path to goodness is probably to ask the question of what we fear losing (power, marks, critical thinking, freedom etc.) by renouncing judgment, mistrust, distinction between one’s own and the “different ones”… Because indeed, there is only sincere goodness in introspection on the relationship that one maintains with the world.
