Walking the Tao – Chapter 19

Who are we, deep down in our fundamental nature? Lao-Tzu says that we are, by nature, virtuous, creative, generous, and compassionate. But many cultural and religious assumptions say that we are selfish, flawed, sinful, and evil – and therefore need to be controlled. Is this true? Do we need to be controlled and forced to be “good?” Or are we basically good and need to be taught how to live out of that goodness?
