You Can Change The World, with Dr. Edward Viljoen, author of Ordinary Goodness

Most people want to make a difference in their lives, writes William MacAskill, author of Doing Good Better, our recommended book of the month. The challenge, he writes, is this: How can we ensure that we avoid accidentally causing harm, and succeed in having the greatest positive impact we can?

Our spiritual studies add to that inquiry, asking how can we be sensitive and sincere when meeting the needs of others without slipping into pity? 
Our teaching of Oneness asks us to treat people equally, whether we are helping them, or being helped by them.

In what ways do you contribute to the alleviation of suffering in the world?

“We should have no objection to any form of healing, for anything that helps to overcome suffering is good, whether it be a pill or a prayer. We believe in any method which produces results, for each has its place in the Whole.”

Ernest Holmes.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
