On Genuine Goodness

The basic nature of all humanity is that of genuine goodness.  The most natural of human experiences and the most noble of efforts is that of self cultivation.

As is the case with everything that is; we humans are sufficiently self equipped to function in accord with our basic nature.  Our basic nature is inwardly revealed at the point of spontaneous urges of kindness and courtesy towards strangers, and at the point of similar such inclinations of concern and compassion for those with whom we are not even acquainted.  Even though our natural tendencies and inclinations do not dictate our actions; nonetheless these spontaneous urges are most certainly indicative of that which actually is our most basic nature.  The nature of every person is that of genuine goodness, regardless of what course of action they may pursue.

Such being the case, there is no need for external instruction as to internal goodness.  We humans are sufficiently self equipped thusly.  Goodness is not driven in from without, but rather is developed from within.  In order to be good, we only need to choose to function in accord with our basic nature.

The basic nature of all humanity is that of genuine goodness.  The most natural of human experiences and the most noble of efforts is that of self cultivation.
