Seeing Goodness – Happy Uposatha

This morning as I roused the mind out of darkness it seemed to me that reflecting upon even the incidental goodness of others served best to brighten the mind. Remembering the loyalty and dedication of my employees during our move, the helpfulness of some of the new building’s maintenance workers and the hard work of my wife at home all brought light into my heart and quickened it.

Opening to mudita is very much like finding a buried treasure in one’s own backyard. It seems to me that there are almost endless possibilities to appreciate the goodness and good fortune of everyone we meet and the benefits strike me as limitless.

May all beings meet the Dhamma and find true release from suffering!
