To transmute the brutal instincts and to become divine is the goal of life. If you control anger, eradicate selfishness and develop tolerance, compassion, selflessness, generosity, courage, forgiveness, you will become divine.
Is selfishness good? No. So become selfless.
Is greediness good? Is anger good? Is lust good? Is vanity good? These form the lower nature of man.
So remove these and become selfless, generous, patient, tolerant, pure and humble. This is the goal.
