A bright vein of goodness that exists in everyone

Once I learned how to look deep within, I found the bright vein of goodness that exists in everyone,, including me -- the good that may be hidden and hard to trust but is never entirely destroyed. I came to believe that I deserve to be happy and so does everyone else. Now when I meet a stranger, I feel more connected, knowing how much we share. And when I meet myself in meditation,I no longer feel I'm encountering a stranger.
