等待與找尋

今天在兩個blog看到關於等待與找尋,很值得記下來…
 
 
Living the Moment to the Fullest

Patience is a hard discipline. It is not just waiting until something happens over which we have no control: the arrival of the bus, the end of the rain, the return of a friend, the resolution of a conflict. Patience is not a waiting passivity until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to be completely present to the moment, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient we try to get away from where we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later and somewhere else. Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.

 
From hocc’s blog (3rd entry she wrote after reading a book on true education)
 
(The author, a mother, talking to her son…)
 
"幾年前你剛轉到新學校,與同學相處有些小磨擦,又想在課業上出頭,弄得頗有挫敗感。有一天臨睡前,竟覺得自己什麼都做不好,不像某某同學什麼都好。
我說:“你怎麼這樣想?上天給每個人不同的天賦與禮物….."
我的話未說完,你哽咽地說:“上天沒給我禮物!”
我嚴肅地說:“你永遠記得,上天給每一個人禮物。但是,祂不告訴你禮物放在哪裡,你必須自己找。有的人很快找到,大叫:“我找到了,有的人過不久也找到了,說:我也找到了!有的人還沒找到,怎麼找都找不到,於是傷心地說:上天不公平,沒給我禮物。你現在沒找到,不代表二十歲時找不到;二十歲沒找到,不代表三十歲找不到。有些禮物非常特殊,祂要先訓練你的力氣,你才能打開那禮物。"
"祂給我的禮物是什麼?"
"我不知道,你要自己慢慢找,你還小,急什麼?不過,我確信祂給你一顆善良的心,給你還不錯的學習能力,健全的身體—–雖然扁平足有點瑕疵但還可以啦,給你溫暖的家……,你看,隨便數數都四樣了你還有什麼不滿意的!上天對你太好喇!!!"
