平静的武士(Peaceful Warrior)

“There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It’s all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don’t worry, just be happy. You are already free!” 
― Dan Millman

上面这段话是出自《Way of the Peaceful Warrior 》(深夜加油站遇见苏格拉底)这本书里。这本书是作者Dan Millan 在1980年出版的半自传体小说,并与2007译成中文出版发行。

我多年前有读过这本书的英文版本,当时真的感触很深,很是喜欢作者通过这本书想要传达给读者的思想。书中有很多充满智慧的佳句名言。

另外,个人认为读书过程中的感受深浅、多少也会因每个人的人生经历,心路历程的不同而产生很大的差异。同样一句话,不同的人会有不同的领悟,甚至即便是同一个人,在不同的阶段,也会有不同的理解。但不管怎样,这本书在我看来都是值得推荐、品读的。

另外这段话,也是我很喜欢的:

“Life has three rules: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

– Paradox: Life is a mystery; don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.

– Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure

– Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.” 
― Dan Millman

大概译文是:

生活有三个法则:矛盾,幽默,和变化。

— 矛盾: 生活是充满了神秘色彩的,不必耗费你的时间试图去弄清出其中的奥妙。

— 幽默: 保持一点儿幽默感,尤其对于自己。它是一种超越一切方式的力量。

— 变化: 要清楚的明白,没有什么事物是可以永远保持不变的。

当我们能了解并在我们的生活中真正可以贯彻他们的时候,你会发现,日子其实没有那么糟,很多时候,当遇到不开心的事时,完全可以一笑了之……….

还有,诸如:

“everyone tells you what’s good for you. they don’t want you to find your own answers. they want you to believe theirs.” 

每个人都口口声声说是为你好,他们却不想让你自己去寻找答案,而只是希望你相信他们的那一套。

“Everything you’ll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body.”

那些你需要了解的所有事情其实就在你的内在;整个宇宙的秘密就印刻在你身体的细胞里。

…………………………

诸如此类富含哲理、禅意的语句,还有很多,如果感兴趣,不妨亲自尝试一下,也许你会有更多更深的感悟。
