Goodness is one of the twelve attributes of the Mother.
Besides, there is a height where all virtues meet in communion: love, goodness, compassion, forbearance, charity are all one and the same in their essence.

“…to be grateful, never to forget this wonderful Grace of the Supreme who leads each one to his divine goal by the shortest ways, in spite of himself, his ignorance and misunderstanding, in spite of the ego, its protests and its revolts.
June 26, 1964″
What’s written here is such a true experience! Never to forget this wonderful Grace of the Supreme who leads you straight to your true goal, in spite of all your revolt, all your misunderstanding—straight, imperturbably.
You cry out, you weep, you protest, you revolt…. “I will lead you right to the end in spite of yourself.”
When I wrote it, it was such a wonderful thing!… We are all so silly, so ignorant, so stupid, we cry out and say, “Oh!…” (people who believe in “God”), “Oh, he is cruel, he is an implacable judge”—they don’t understand a thing! It’s just the opposite! A goodness, an infinite grace that leads you there, just like that, right to the end, prrt! Straight.

I know you mean well, but to be good, truly good, may be possible only for those who have gone beyond all egoism. But if my Mother chooses to see only the good in her child, that only speaks of the goodness of the Mother’s heart.
My child’s heart is filled with love and light from the Divine; let them shine throughout your whole being and the clouds, if any, will soon disappear.
Love and blessings to my dear child.

The Power of Goodness:
The bloom of natural goodness like a flower
Is Nature’s darling, all her creatures prize,
And on whose body’s stock its fragrant power
Blossoms, all fiercest things can humanise.
Sri Aurobindo – Translations: CWSA, Vol. 5, p. 360
The Strength of Simple Goodness:
…. Her touch can turn the lewd man into a saint,
Inimitably her quiet magic lent
Change fools to sages and hidden mysteries show
Beyond eye’s reach or brain’s attempt to know,
Fierce enemies become friends and poisons ill
Transform in a moment to nectar at her will.
Sri Aurobindo – Translations: CWSA, Vol. 5, p. 355
