作者

Marianne Williamson, excerpt from "A Return to Love"

內文

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

內文翻譯

翻譯一:

我們內心深處最深沉的恐懼不是我們能力不夠
而是其實我們遠比預期的還要更強而有力
我們展現的是光芒,而非黑影,這是最令我們恐懼的
你做事畏首畏尾,這其實並不能存活於這世上
世界上沒有人會表揚懦弱退縮的人
我們生來就是要發光發亮,就像初生之犢那般無所畏懼
具備發光發亮的人,不是只有少數人,而是每一個人皆如此
當我們讓自己發光發亮之際,我們潛意識地允許旁人也這麼發出光亮
當我們從內心的恐懼中解放出來時,我們的光芒同時也照亮並解放了他人。
翻譯二:

我們最大的恐懼,不是因為我們不夠好
我們最大的恐懼,是我們清楚知道,我們擁有超乎自己想像的能力
因此,我們害怕的是,當我們會變得更好時,就不能在如往常般躲在黑暗、舒服的一隅
但是,畏縮並不能幫助我們改變命運
隱藏自己內在的潛能,也不會讓你身邊的人更有安全感
我們每個人都是耀眼的,就像初生的嬰兒,對著世界充滿著無比希望
這不只是某些人,而是『每一個人』
當我們讓自己發光發熱時,我們自然而然、不知不覺中影響到身邊所有的人
讓他們也跟著我們這麼做,當我們從恐懼中釋放出來,我們也自然釋放了所有人
翻譯三:

我們最大的恐懼,並不是因為我們不夠好

我們最大的恐懼,是我們超乎想像的能力

我們害怕的是我們光明,而不是黑暗的一面

畏縮的態度不能改變世界

隱藏自己內在的潛能,並不會讓你身邊的人,覺得更有安全感

我們都應該發揮最大的潛能,就像小孩子那樣

不只是我們其中的幾位,每個人都一樣

當我們讓自己發光時,我們不自覺地影響到身邊的人,讓他們也能這麼做

我們不但擺脫了自己的恐懼,我們的存在也自然的解放了別人

作者

Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken” 未選之路

內文

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood ,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth ;

Then took the other, as just as fair ,

And having perhaps the better claim ,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear ;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same ,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black .

Oh, I kept the first for another day !

Yet knowing how way leads on to way ,

I doubted if I should ever come back .

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence :

Two roads diverged in a wood ,and I—

I took the one less traveled by ,

And that has made all the difference .

內文翻譯

黃色的 樹林裏分出兩條路

可惜我 不能同時去涉足

我在那 路口久久佇立

我向著 一條路極目望去

但我卻 選擇了另外一條路

它荒草 萋萋,十分幽寂

顯得更 誘人,更美麗

雖然在 這兩條小路上

都很少 留下旅人的足跡

雖然那 天清晨落葉滿地

兩條路 都未經腳印污染

呵,留下一條路等改日再見

但我知 道路徑延綿無盡頭

恐怕我 難以再回返

也許多 少年後在某一個地方

我將輕 聲歎息把往事回顧

一片森 林裏分出兩條路

而我卻 選擇了人跡更少的一條

從此決定了我一生的道路

內文

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

When I read this quote this morning I couldn’t help but to think of Gene Kelly in the old movie Singing in the Rain. I ‘saw’ in my mind the scene where he danced with great joy, by himself, in a downpour of rain. I don’t remember why he was happy but he didn’t wait under an awning for the rain to stop. He didn’t care about getting soaking wet or looking really peculiar…he just danced for joy!

How many times have I literally stood still by my kitchen door–or in a store–waiting for the rain to get less intense so I can get to my car without getting wet? And figuratively how many times have I stood still at my heart’s door waiting for the storm in my personal life to pass before I stepped out, wet with tears, to let my spirit dance, praise my God, smile, encourage others…fulfill my place of service? Truly, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

What does God say about this matter? (I’m going to leave this in Bible-study form…just as I wrote it in my journal.)

Psalm 30:5 “….in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

I have the promise…promise of God that my weeping will end. I am told “in his favour is life:” and I know to be in God’s favor I must walk in obedience, abiding in Christ. My joy is found in my abiding in Christ—trusting Him and believing His Word. So, in effect, I choose when to dance; praise, thank, glorify the Lord: I choose when to dance by choosing to do right, think right, be right with God in the midst of every storm of life. God will, when I have set my heart and relationship right with Him, do the turning of my sadness into joy so that I can praise Him,

“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.” Psalm 30:11-12

Psalm 149:3 “Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.”

“Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.” Psalm 150:4

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

Are we dancing in the rain of our lives? Remember, we can only see a rainbow through the rain…and the rainbow will always come.

4. See the upset not as an exterior circumstance to be remedied, but as an interior condition to be understood.

5. Your secret strength knows that your secret weakness isn't really yours at all.

6. Letting Go is all about finding out what you are not, and then having the courage to leave it at that.

7. Instead of always asking how to get others to approve of you ... learn to ask: What do I really want, the applause of the crowds or to quietly have my own life?

8. Chasing after a pleasure to ease a pain is like running after a breeze to cool you down.

9. Real freedom is the absence of the self that feels trapped, not the trappings that the self requires to make it feel free.
