What does it mean to be righteous?

According to Confucius, it is by living in accordance with #TheGoldenRule 🏆 that we become righteous and contribute to the well-being all.

What did Confucius mean by “righteous”? Not the self-absorbed superiority bias-driven judgement that we associate the word with today. Rather, he defines “righteous” as “goodness of heart”—a desire to alleviate the suffering of others, to have sympathetic joy at their successes, and never tear other people down. ❤️

Are you ready to commit to living in accordance with The Golden Rule?
