Goodness Spiritual Principle
|Rainbow Color||Orange – Compassion & Wisdom|
|Evolving Color||Amber – Sophia|
Goodness, like many of the words describing the principles, evokes a sense of value – a beneficial description of something. However, as a spiritual principle, “Goodness” means non-judgmental – “Godness.” We see that it is anchored in the animals, and that is because animals simply use their senses to judge a situation. A situation is deemed safe because it smells safe; it’s dangerous because it sounds or smells dangerous; it’s inviting because the hair and skin say so. Sensations outweigh reason in the animal body.
And yes, we humans have animal bodies, but we’ve learned to over-ride sensation in favor of rationality. However, with Goodness in your invisible garment pattern, you can also access what I call sense wisdom – a wisdom embedded in your five senses (not to be confused with “common sense.”)
In other words, Goodness (as a spiritual principle) is not the opposite of “badness.” It is instead the ability to access deep knowingness. It is the ability to be in touch with the animal nature of your own evolutionary history. It is the energy that puts you in touch with all creatures.

My husband has Goodness in his garment pattern. He can think like an animal. He knows where the wild turkeys will roost tonight, why the deer are in this thicket instead of that, watches which way the wind is blowing. I always thought he would have been a good veterinarian. He can lay hands on tame or wild animals and knows how they think. Interestingly, the area of his back where his kidneys are is always cold to touch. We used to have a bull named Paul. Once in awhile he’d go over the fence to visit the neighbor’s cows. Ed would just yell at him to get him to come home. “Paul, get over here. You know you don’t below over there!!!” Paul would growl and snort, but he’d obey.
Once we had a cow (who looked more like a wild donkey) who wouldn’t let her calf nurse. Ed would have to tie her up and then she’d kick the calf in the head. He told her she was a stupid bitch and she had until the week-end to decide what she was going to do. If she was still kicking her calf, he would take her to the sale. She relented.
In my chart, Mercury and Saturn are in the principle of Goodness – my mental processing and my ‘world view.’ The two resonate together, and as a result I have an almost invincible conviction of the essential goodness of the world and all its creatures. One can nearly always find the good in a situation, or at least a perspective from which one can see good in potential. That made me something of a Pollyanna at times. But attunement to Goodness as a principle also allows discernment. The not-yet-ripe, the undeveloped, the not-useful-here all come from a basic appreciation of what the situation actually is. “Isn’t there such a thing as evil?” belongs largely to the social issues of the human species, not to nature or to the Ascending principles.
