What is basic goodness?

The concept of basic goodness is rooted in various spiritual and philosophical traditions. It is the belief that humans are inherently compassionate beings, and while we may exhibit negative behaviors or face challenges, at our core, we're all basically good. 

Connecting with our basic goodness is a journey that does not depend on our accomplishments or fulfilling our desires. It involves appreciating the simple pleasures of everyday life, cultivating self-awareness, and nurturing a deep sense of interconnectedness with each other.
