Before we tackle such a large question, let’s back it up for a moment here and define what a “good person” truly is. Is being a good person something we are or something we do? Does it refer to someone who possesses a good personality, or one who performs good deeds? Are good people born or made? Is goodness different than spirituality and divinity?
Being a good person is quite simple; it is knowing that you, and everybody else, has a purpose in life. Imagine what your life would be like if you went around fully aware that you matter, and that everybody else matters! Would you be able to be mean, be disrespectful, or be petty? What if you saw other people, and yourself, as souls rather than as bodies? If there was no higher calling, no higher purpose to this world, what would goodness even look like?
