Attitude adjustment

Fr. Keating offers some challenging thoughts about God's goodness. However, the starting point, is the first chapter of Genesis, when God saw that it was "all good."  I have added the italics below.

"The seventh Fruit of the Spirit is Goodness. Goodness is the affirmation of the creation as good, together with a sense of oneness with the universe and everything God created. It recognizes the beauty of all creation in spite of the damage that human selfishness has imposed upon it. As a result gratitude toward God abounds in our hearts and a positive attitude characterizes our relationship with others and with the wear and tear of daily life.” Fr. Thomas Keating
