Goodness is not complicated. And makes no apology for its plainness, its directness, its lack of protocol or sophistication or appropriate appearances. Goodness just shows up wherever and however suits the moment . . .
. . . and goodness is instantly recognizable regardless . . .
and always welcomed.
Here’s the thing: Goodness acts by pitching in, not by taking charge, and yet if an initiative is called for
. . . a volunteer of sorts . . . goodness steps forward . . .
. . . steps up,
but doesn’t step on.
This is the meaning of: “The meek shall inherit the earth.”
First of all:
Meek is not weak.
Whoever’s been telling you that has an agenda other than truth.
The meek are those who feel genuinely equal and do not push to be first. The meek are those who, as they rise to stand, do not need to knock anyone else over and are always reaching out to those nearby to help them rise together.
