Being good

Why should we be ‘good’? Sangha asks. Being good is a reward in itself, she has been told, and believes. But sometimes, at least at times like today, she wonders why there should not be some tangible recognition of a person’s goodness.

Goodness can mean many things to many people, different things to different people, at different times. To Sangha, today it means a simple life, a hardworking life, a life that doesn’t take more than it gives – to both ‘her’ world and ‘the’ world. Everyone who knows Sangha knows she is good in this respect, among the best even. Why then do they rob her of her material possessions and mental peace? Has she not already given more than she has taken?
