Tao Te Ching Chapter 79-4 No favoritism
Heaven's Tao has no favoritism. It is always on the side of a good person. (Ch.79)
"Heaven" means your hologram as the word "sky" does.
So, Heaven's Tao signifies Tao's energy inside all the beings in the hologram.
In other words, it is Hossho 法性, the nature of manifestation. (☞See Hossho stays low 76-9)
Tao does not judge.
It seems that the limited capacity of human beings judge.
Tao's energy inside your hologram has no favoritism.
There is neither good nor bad in Tao.
Then, what does "a good person" mean?
"A good person" means you.
True You are Tao.
Therefore, only you can sustain the Tao/hologram mechanism, Shin 心.
Japanese philosopher Kitaro Nishida 西田幾多郎 (1870 - 1945) says:
"Practically speaking, we have only one true Good, which is to find out the true Self. That's all."
(translated by Naoto Matsumoto; Book III, Chapter 13, The Perfect Good Action, «A Study of the Good 善の研究» ☞See A study of the Good 49-3 and Goodness 49-5)
What is the true Self?
"It is the true body of the cosmos", Nishida answers. (Ditto)
The true body of the cosmos is the Tao/hologram mechanism, Shin 心.

Lao Tzu answers your question!
☞«An Inquiry into the Good» and «A Study of the Good» are the same book. Kitaro Nishida 西田幾多郎 first wrote this book in order to teach his high school students. The Japanese title is «Zen no Kenkyu 善の研究». Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki 鈴木大拙, the author of many important books on Zen in English, was Nishida's close friend. They met each other at a high school in Kanazawa, Ishikawa prefecture, Japan. High school education is no longer available exclusively for the elite these days while its level is not so academically "high" as the name declares.
