The Goodness are the mechanism for enabling a focus on goodness to come to the fore in personal and social life. They enable the production of goodness through , which are themselves evoked and created by an act of .
In evaluating that production, the above schema of characteristic qualities devised for Note, however, that the ordering is differentYou should reflect on the order, and later check alternatives for yourself: feedback or comment below..seemed to fit the
The criterion here is pragmatic: does the exposition below help you (and me) understand goodness and this framework. If it does, then it is worthwhile (i.e. an expression of goodness). The example used below is: goodness.
goodness makes necessary and appropriate: between conflicting ideas, or disputing parties, or my wishes and the needs in the situation.

«Good deeds» are small tasks that safely deliver goodness. «Good works» are large tasks that often entail full-time jobs and bureaucratization,

goodness to be effective, the actual outcome must be . Any process or end-result that is unhelpful suggests that, despite best intentions, something has gone wrong somewhere.
Because «having helpful intentions» is not sufficient for goodness, the need for and becomes evident. This sheds light on the effects of religious charities that expect beneficiaries to submit: it's back-to-front!
goodness at any moment depends on a belief that I personally have about what is truly relevant and can help in the specific situation.

Goodness can be contributed via assertions of what is good, and consequently your will come into play.
Those gaining egocentric benefits often assert goodness via emotional arguments or by appeal to doctrines held to be right. Preferences (priorities) rather than are then in play. To paraphrase the saying: the road to hell is paved with good assertions.
Goodness can ensure that I have an experience of the situation through positive . Experiencing has effects on myself and others that can make even seemingly impossible challenges worthwhile.

You may be playing with these ideas and suddenly get the sense that all qualities apply everywhere. In one sense they do, but this is because you can and do change your frame of reference all the time. Theand characteristic quality are only fixed within a given frame of reference. For example, the frame might be: «apply to handle X».
However, if you then alter the frame of reference to «applyto "apply in handling X"», which you can easily do when you focus on it, then you will notice that the outcome of must be or that you depend on a belief during based on what you .
So the quality associated withsuddenly seems to change from a core activity to an outcome and then to a belief.
Confusing, isn't it?
