Give Part of Yourself Away

By DR.HAROLD TAYLOR

We are living in one of those periods in human history which are marked by recolutionary changes in sll of man's ideas and values. It is a time when every one of us must look within himself to find what ideas, what beliefs, and what ideals each of us will live by. And unless we fins1 these ideals,and unless we stand by them firmly, we have no power to overcome the crisis in which we in our world fins ourselves.

I believe in perople, in sheer, unadulterated humanity, I believe inlistening to what people have to say, in helping2 them to achieve the things which they want and the things ehich they need. Naturally,there are peop;e who behave like beasts, who kill,who cheat, who lie and who destroy. But without a belief in man and a faith in his possibilities for the future, there can be no hope for the future, but only bitterness that the past has gone. I believe we must, each of us, make a philosophy a philosophy by which we can live. There are people who make a philosophy out of believing in nothing. They say there is no truth,that goodness is simply cleverness in disguising your own selfishness. They say that life is simply the short gap in between an unpleasant birth and an inevitable3 death. There are others who saythat man is born inti evil and sinfulness and that life is a process of purification through suffering and that death is the reward for having sufferes.There are others who say that man is a kind of machine which operates according to certain laws, and that if you can learn the laws and seize the power to manipulate the machine, you can make man behave autmatically to serve whatever ends you have in mind.

I believe these philosophies are false. The most important thing in life is the way it it lived,and there is no such thing as an abstract happiness,an abstract goodness or morality, or an abstract anything,except in terms of the person who believes and who acts. There is only the single human being who lives and who through every moment of his own personal living experience, is being happy or unhappy,noble or base, wise or unwise, or simply existing.

The question is: How can these individual moments of human experience be filled with the richness of a philosophy which can sustain the indicidual in his own life?Unless we give part of ourselves away,unless we can live with other people and understand them and help them,we are missing the most essential part of our own human lives. The fact that the native endowment of the young mind is one of liberalism and confidence in the powers of man for goos is the basis of my philosophy.And if only man can be given a free chance to use his powers, this philosophy will result in a boundless4 flow of vital energy and a willingness to try new things,combined with a faith in the future.

There are as many roads to the sttainment of wisdom and goodness as there are people who undertake to waik them.There are as many solid truths on which we can stand as there are people who can search them out and who will stand on them. There are as many ideas and ideals as there are men of good will who will hold them in their minds and act them in their lives.
