The Analects of Confucius 7.29

“Is humaneness far away?  As soon as I want it, there it is, right by me” (The Analects; 7.29)

Humaneness is a natural state of care and concern for others which is common to us all.  We were all born with genuine goodness.

Some have forsaken such in search of the almighty dollar.  Some have forgotten such midst a fast paced life which drains the mind as we slave our lives away for the sake of the system known as Capitalism.

Yet no person is without the natural state of genuine goodness common to us all.

There need be no resurrection of our humaneness, for our genuine goodness never dies.  Merely reflect, merely remember who you are.

Humaneness is a natural state of care and concern for others which is common to us all.  We were all born with genuine goodness.
