What Makes Me Feel Big

By Author: tearsjoong

"My MIND is big when I look at you and talk to you," Chief Eagle of the Pawnees said to George Bird Grinnellm when, after years of absence, that noble writer appeared

at his friend's tepee.

It is very difficult in drawing up a credo to be severely honest about oneself, to avoid all traditional cant. We actually believe in what we value most. Outside of

the realms of carnality and property, which men appearing in public generally pretend not to notice, I believe in and draw nourishment from whatever makes me "feel

big".

I believe in a Supreme Power, unknowable and impersonal, whose handiwork the soul-enlarging firmament declares. However, I believe in questionings, doublings,

searchings, skepticism, and I discredit credulity or blind faith. The progress of man is based on disbelief of the commonly accepted.

The noblest minds and natures of human history have thought and sung, lived and died, trying to budge the status quo towards a larger and fuller status. I am sustained

by a belief in evolution — the increasing purpose of life in which the rational is, with geological slowness, evolving out of the irrational. To believe that goodness

and wisdom and righteousness, in Garden of Eden perfection, lie somewhere far ahead instead of farther and farther behind, gives me hope and somewhat explains

existence. This is a long view. I do not pretend that it is a view always present in me. It does raise me when I have it, however.

I feel no resentment so strongly as that against forces which make men and women afraid to speak out forthrightly. The noblest satisfaction I have is in witnessing the

up movement of suppressed individuals and people. I make no pretense to having rid myself of all prejudices, but at times when Ihave discovered myself freed from

certain prejudices, I have felt rare exhilaration.
