曾近有个大臣因智慧超群而深受国王宠幸。
智慧大臣有一个不同寻常的特点:对待任何事情,他都保持积极乐观的想法。总是看到事物积极的一面。也正是由于这种态度,他为国王解决了不少难题,因而深受国王的器重。
国王喜欢打猎。在一次围捕猎物的时候,不慎弄断了一截手指。国王疼痛之余,马上叫来了智慧大臣,征询他对意外断指的看法。智慧大臣仍轻松自在地对国王说,这是一件好事,并劝国王不要为此事而烦恼。
国王听了很生气,认为智慧大臣是在取笑他,即命侍卫将他关到监狱。
待断指伤口愈合之后,国王又兴致勃勃地忙着四处打猎。不幸的事终于发生了,他带队误闯邻国国境,被埋伏在丛林中的野人捉住了。
按照野人的惯例,必须将活捉的这队人马的首领敬献给他们的神,于是便将国王押上祭坛。正当祭奠仪式开始,主持的巫师突然惊叫起来。原来巫师发现国王断了一截手指,而按他们部族的律例,献祭不完整的祭品给天神,是要遭天谴的。野人赶忙将国王押下祭坛,把他驱逐出去,另外抓了一位大臣献祭。国王狼狈地逃回国,庆幸大难不死。忽然想起智慧大臣所说断指也许是一件好事,便马上将他从牢中释放出来,并当面向他道歉。
智慧大臣和往常一样,仍然保持着积极乐观的态度,笑着原谅了国王,
并说这一切都是好事。
“说我断指是好事,现在我能接受;但如果说因我误会你,而把你关在牢中,让你受苦,你认为这是好事吗?”国王不服气地质问。
“臣在牢狱中,当然是好事。陛下不妨想想,今天我若不是在牢中,陪陛下出猎的大臣会是谁呢?”智慧大臣笑着回答。
时常抱有积极的心态,我们就能看到事物好的一面,体会到生命的美好。
今天分享一篇英语美文《生命的美好》。
Though there is much to be concerned about, there is far, far more for which to be thankful. Though life’s goodness can at times be overshadowed, it is never outweighed.
尽管有很多事让人忧虑,但相比而言,值得感激的事要多得多。尽管生命的美好有时被蒙上阴影,但它却永远不会被埋没。
For every single act that is senselessly destructive, there are thousands more small, quiet acts of love, kindness and compassion. For every person who seeks to hurt, there are many, many more who devote their lives to helping and to healing.
相对于每一个无谓的破坏行为而言,都有更多数以千计更为微小的,包含着爱,友善和同情的举动静静地上演着。相对于每一个试图伤害他人的人而言,都有更多的人致力于帮助他人,治愈他人的创伤。
There is goodness to life that cannot be denied.
生命的美好不能否认。
In the most magnificent vistas and in the smallest details, look closely, for that goodness always comes shining through.
在最为壮观的前景和最为琐碎的细节中,请仔细观察,因为美好的事物总是散发着耀眼的光芒闪亮登场。
There is no limit to the goodness of life. It grows more abundant with each new encounter. The more you experience and appreciate the goodness of life, the more there is to be lived.
生命的美好没有界限。每一次相遇都会使这美好变得越发丰富。你经历得越多,越能欣赏生命的美好,生命中的美好就会变得越多。
Even when the cold winds blow and the world seems to be covered in foggy shadows, the goodness of life lives on. Open your eyes, open your heart, and you will see that goodness is everywhere.
即使当寒风袭来,整个世界似乎被雾气掩盖之时,生命的美好仍会存在。睁开双眼,打开心扉,你就会发现这美好无处不在。
Though the goodness of life seems at times to suffer setbacks, it always endures. For in the darkest moment it becomes vividly clear that life is a priceless treasure. And so the goodness of life is made even stronger by the very things that would oppose it.
尽管生命的美好有时似乎遭受挫折,但它总会挺过来。因为,在最黑暗的时刻,有一点变得格外清楚,那就是,生命是无价的财富。因此,正是与生命的美好相对立的事物使其越发强大。
Time and time again when you feared it was gone forever you found that the goodness of life was really only a moment away. Around the next corner, inside every moment, the goodness of life is there to surprise and delight you.
无数次地,当你担心这美好已经远离之时,你会发现生命的美好其实只与你相隔须臾。它就在下一角落,存在于每个时刻之间,等着给你惊喜。
Take a moment to let the goodness of life touch your spirit and calm your thoughts. Then, share your good fortune with another. For the goodness of life grows more and more magnificent each time it is given away.
花些时间让生命的美好感动自己的灵魂,放松自己的思绪。然后,把你的幸运与他人分享。因为生命的美好会在每次给予之间变得越来越壮观。
Though the problems constantly scream for attention and the conflicts appear to rage ever stronger, the goodness of life grows stronger still, quietly, peacefully, with more purpose and meaning than ever before.
尽管总是有问题让你去关注,冲突也似乎愈演愈烈,但生命的美好却总是静静地,平和地,带着比以往更强的意志和更多的价值变得更加强大。
