Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

“Every Monday, I offer a little mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

In this week’s Mindful Monday video & podcast, Waylon talks about something we all naturally have. 

“This is basic: Basic Goodness. You have it. Beneath all of our good and not so great qualities, there it is. Reconnect with it by simply appreciating your world.” ~ Waylon Lewis

“Beneath our mistakes, beneath both the problematic parts of ourselves…and the wonderful parts of ourselves, as our ego may judge—there is basic goodness, basic kindness, basic tenderness, basic sense of humor. It is called ‘basic’ because it’s fundamental. It’s like the foundation of a house; it’s solid and it’s never going anywhere. It’s not solid in the sense of a fixed mind. It’s solid in the sense that it is just intrinsic or inherent. It is natural. So we could call it natural goodness.” ~ Waylon Lewis
