By reflecting and acting as per our fundamental nature, we can enable ourselves to enhance our naturalness. Moreover, it can facilitate us to discover that we have the ability to carry out acts of virtue and kindness. And thus this naturalness plays an extremely vital role in facilitating us to experience our utmost delight. Hence, the application of self-reflection is actually the basis of Mengzi’s idea of self-cultivation. Mengzi suggests that the lesser self possesses a great potential to accomplish significant value, if it is used for the purpose of providing assistance to the greater self. In order to emerge as a better person, one should either pursue the better self or enable the better self to direct the lesser self. In short, sensual inclinations should be directed more by the moral inclinations. The essential point in this regard is that one should never hurt the better through lesser. Mengzi also suggests that when the better self accomplishes sustainable growth and becomes firmly established, then it becomes extremely difficult for the lesser self to exert its control over the better self. Moreover, as per Mengzi, the mind carries out an extremely vital role in this regard. Mengzi proposes that our mind is assigned with the function to reflect on our priorities and also not to let the charisma of material things to exert its control over the sensual feature of the lesser self.
