Some people think of goodness as a sign of weakness and that it is easy to take advantage of a good person because they have trouble saying ‘no.’ However, goodness is a trait that consists of many other virtues like niceness, gentleness, kindness, and intelligence.
Plus, their empathy can sense everything. They can recognize a toxic person from a mile away and can quickly move to a safe environment. Also, they have very deep and profound opinions and are not scared to say them out loud. The only difference is that they are expressing themselves nicely.
The nicest, kindest, and most selfless people are extremely intelligent and brilliant. They have an open mind and are not judgmental. They are always willing to try new things. And versatility and intelligence go hand in hand. The more spiritually awaken and good someone is, the more intelligent they are.
According to neuroscientist Richard Davidson, “The basis of a healthy brain is goodness.”
He believes that a kind and good person thinks not only about themselves but for the benefit of all people. That takes a lot of skills and knowledge. A selfish and mean person cannot think of others because they don’t possess the mental capacity for it.
On the topic of love and intelligence, Davidson said, “I actually think that this is going to be the next frontier for science and neuroscience. I’m not afraid to speak about love… Love, kindness, and education, as you say — I’ve not heard those words put together before. It’s refreshing.”
Finally, since being a good person require having huge amounts of love in your heart, then the absence of love can really have devastating effects on a person’s emotional and mental wellbeing and their whole persona.
“Wisdom is nothing more than the marriage of intelligence and compassion. And, as with all good unions, it takes much experience and time to reach its widest potential.” – Vera Nazarian
We shouldn’t forget about the power of oneness and being there for one another. That’s the only way that we can be truly happy.
