Basic Goodness and Harmony (Chogyam Trungpa)


Chogyam Trungpa: And we begin to feel that way ourselves, that basic goodness exists in ourselves. For the very reason that you are not struggling, just purely creating harmony alone, but you are also creating enlightened society.

Looking for the good qualities - such as strengths, good intentions, talents, virtues, efforts - in another person can have many benefits. Seeing the goodness in someone can improve your interactions and relationship with that person, and also bring out the best in him or her. Through this practice you are inclining your mind to look for the good, while also offering others the gift of being “seen” with kindness.

When you wake up in the morning, set the intention to look for the good qualities in one or more people you encounter this day.

When you meet someone, look for one or more good qualities in him or her. These qualities can be mild, such as a basic sense of fair play. The other person does not need to be a saint, and can have problematic qualities as well (as most of us do).
