The word “good” carries a cultural connotation that means mediocre, passable, leaving room for improvement. We want superlatives like super, fantastic, or excellent, followed by many exclamation points to describe our achievements and experiences.  Somehow, “good,” is never enough for us.  But why? Goodness also connotes purity of heart, a value we treasure as rare. To simply pause each day and bask in the very goodness of each moment seems a luxury in our fast-paced, stressful lives. Yet, when we purposely orient ourselves to do so, we may suddenly be overcome with transfigured moments of our own. Like the apostles on Mount Tabor, the deep-down essence of Presence will re-write these simple words on our lips and hearts.
