Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-5 Goodness
I attain goodness. (Ch.49)
What is goodness?
Let's ask again the author of "A Study of the Good", Kitaro Nishida.
"It is to find out the true Self".
Don't we ask him how, do we?
His answer is:
"By eliminating your false self."
In Christianity, it is called reincarnation.
In Buddhism, it is called Kensho 見性, seeing into one's nature, says Nishida.
How can we eliminate our false self?
You do nothing.
Because you don't have the false self from the beginning.
It is just part of your hologram.

☞A quotation from Kitaro Nichida's «An Inquiry into the Good / A Study of the Good»: "According to Aurelius Augustinus (St. Augustine), something bad does not exist in the world, and the nature which God created is all good, but the lack of the true nature is bad." (Book III, Chapter XIII, A perfectly good deed)
