特別分享:Sunsets for Shalin


這是一個實際發生在身邊朋友的故事。故事的主人翁是這位朋友的女婿,近期因為癌症末期離開人間。他是一位相當優秀的人才,從名校畢業後自願投身於其它國家,協助當地人來發展經濟以提昇生活品質,卻因過度勞累與營養不良,造成身體不適被緊急送回美國治療,讓人難過的是,他同時也被診斷出患有末期的癌症。對於一個即將展開人生黃金旅途的年輕人,生命給了他這樣一個重大的轉變,他選擇坦然面對並更加珍惜人生最後的時光。以下的文章來自於他對生命的體認,讓我們來分享他的智慧,更加珍惜身邊的人事物。原文是英文,有幸能夠在中文翻譯的部份盡些心力,透過他人生最後的話語,帶給更多人正向的力量。他的家人同時為他舉辦了一個分享他生前最喜歡的夕陽照片的活動,請您在閱讀文章外也透過網路社群一起來參與。臉書facebook活動網址:https://www.facebook.com/sunsetsforshalin



No room for hatred in my heart
我的心房裡頭沒有空間留給怨恨    

Stay positive, no time for negativity, no complaints or regrets
堅持樂觀、沒有時間悲哀、沒有抱怨與後悔    

Life is perfect. I would not change one thing about Life or about myself or anyone or anything I know, everyone in the world is perfect in their own ways and serves a specific role in the universe
生命是完美的,我不會改變出現在生命中的人事物,每個人出現在這個世界上都是獨特完美的,在這遼闊的宇宙中扮演著屬於他自己的角色
   
Ban negative thoughts
把所有煩惱拋開    

Do not judge people (you are no better than everyone else and they are no better than you, don't mind yourself with what others choose to do, truly wish for the happiness of others, be self-confident and proud of the quirks and idiosyncrasies of who you are because you are part of an ecosystem that would not be the same without your existence (you play an essential role in the universe), only concern yourself with your own decisions and actions, be mindful of how much you need (don't take more than what you need) know what you want out of life and only take the necessary resources to execute your life's ambitions, minimize gluttony and waste, waste is an unavoidable part of life, I want everyone else to be as happy as they possibly can be (I want to help them reach their wildest ambitions, I want to volunteer and give to the less fortunate, I want to take my more fortuitous situation and spread it to others
別評論他人,因為我們並沒有比別人更好,同樣地其他人也沒有比自己更好,不需要去在意他人的選擇,只要誠心地給予祝福,勇敢地做自己、展現自己,因為每個人都是在這個宇宙中維持平衡基本的一分子,少了你這個世界就不再相同。只需要留心與負責自己所做的決定與行動,瞭解自己生命所要的並勇敢追求,不要過度浪費,只以生命中必須的資源來支持我們的企圖心、將浪費與貪心降到最低,雖然浪費是在生命中都會面對的一部分,我希望每一個人都能夠過著幸福開心的生活,盡我所能來幫助每一個人來完成寬闊的夢想,自動自發來幫助每個需要被幫助的人,我希望將發生在我身上的福份分享給每一個人
    
Life is perfect, all of the quirks are what makes life beautiful, the essence of being a human being is beautiful, time is a flowing stream and measurements of time (I.e. Minutes, days) distract you from the fact that time is a constant stream, metaphysics and the workings of nature are beautiful and I have the upmost appreciation for everything
生命是完美的,每一個出現在生命中的偶然都使得生命更加地美麗,身為人的本質就是一種美麗,而時光的飛逝或是計算時間的方式(例如:時間、天數)都讓我們分心,忘記了時間的存在其實是綿延不絕、是一種形式上的過程,呼應與展現著自然而生的美好,是讓我們無時無刻心存感激的

Keep an open mind: do not have pre-conceived notions, put in an effort to like things (songs, celebrities, people)
保持愉快開放的態度,不要懷有偏見,大膽地喜歡與追求自己想要的(包括音樂、偶像名人、其他人)    

I have an infinite understanding, I understand everyone else's decisions because they are fundamentally human like me and we are all driven by the same intrinsic human nature and I can never be mad at them for making any decision
我有一種珍貴永恆的體認,我體諒與瞭解到其他人所做的決定,因為其他人與我一樣都是人,都是受到人們與生俱來的固有能力驅使,我也不會因為其他人所作的決定而感到生氣。   

Circle of life. Ecological network. Reincarnation. Nirvana.
生活圈。生態網絡。輪迴。涅槃。    

The greatest joys come from the simple things in life. Appreciate the simple things.
生命中最真實的愉悅是來自於最簡單的事物,珍惜這些簡單的事物

Have fun, enjoy life all the time
享受人生,隨時保持愉悅與快樂

Bad has to exist in order to appreciate good, relativity and perspective
壞的事物之所以存在,是為了彰顯良善、真實、與觀點

Love and happiness are essential forces like gravity
愛與幸福正是維繫著一切的力量,就像是地心引力一樣   

Show appreciation and thanks to everyone for even very small acts
對每一個人懷著感恩的心情,就算只是細微末節
    
There is no need to try to impress others and make them jealous, do what you want to do, no matter what you do in life you cannot be arrogant
不需要刻意追求外在的風光亮麗來使得別人妒忌眼紅,只要順著心中的想法、自然而然地作為,就不會有引人不悅的傲慢

because everyone is human, no better or worse than you. At the same time, there is no reason you should feel jealous or insecure around others regardless of their lives, achievements, good looks, wealth, etc.
每個人都是獨立的個體,他們並不會比你傑出或是比你糟糕,同時你也不需要去懷有嫉妒之心,也不需要因為別人的生活、成就、外表、財富而使自己感到不安

Open a meditation center and teach others how to live happier lives
打開心中的智慧,並且教導身邊的人如何追求更幸福的生活

Enjoy everything you do, even those which you do not like doing
享受每一個當下,就算是當時做的是自己不喜歡做的事

Giving to others is an act of spreading love
給予是一種散播愛的行為

Do not do things for personal gain, do not take advantage of others, do not look for recognition or praise
不要追求個人私利、不要佔人便宜、更不要沽名釣譽

Don't compete with others or compare yourself with others
不需要與別人競爭或互相比較

Fill yourself with energy, boundless energy (feel alive)
讓自己充滿正向的能量,感受到生命無窮的活力

Life is what you make of it, put in effort to excel. Make the most of what you have
生命是由自己所創造的,努力超越自己,讓你所有的發揮最大效用

Life is not a competition
生活不是一場競賽

No right/wrong way to live your life
沒有一個既定的錯與對來告訴我們如何度過此生

There is no such thing as better, only better suited
沒有所謂的更好,只有更適合自己的人生


誠摯地感謝 Shalin

RIP
