Flying Spider

《飞翔的蜘蛛》

Belief is a kind of invincible strength; when you believe that you can achieve your goals, you will succeed.

信念是一种无坚不摧的力量,当你坚信自己能成功时,你必能成功。

One day, I found that a black spider spun a big net between two eaves of the backyard.

一天,我发现,一只黑蜘蛛在后院的两檐之间结了一张很大的网。

Could the spider fly?

难道蜘蛛会飞?

If not, the first line was how to be pulled because it was more than ten feet wide between the end of this eave and that of another.

要不,从这个檐头到那个檐头,中间有十英尺多宽,第一根线是怎么拉过去的?

Later, I found that the spider went many detours—starting from the edge of one eave, it tied knots, down the wall, climbed on step by step, carefully, cocked its tail, kept the wire out of the sand on the ground or other objects, went through the space, climbed up the opposite eave and tightened the wire when it reached as much as highly; later it was also alike.

后来,我发现蜘蛛走了许多弯路——从一个檐头起,打结,顺墙而下,一步一步向前爬,小心翼翼,翘起尾部,不让丝沾到地面的沙石或别的物体上,走过空地,再爬上对面的檐头,高度差不多了,再把丝收紧,之后也是如此。

A spider cant fly, but it can make the net spin in the midair.

蜘蛛不会飞翔,但它能把网结在半空中。

It is a diligent, sensitive, silent and tenacious insect, whose net is made exquisitely and orderly, spreading like a fan, as if God helps it.

它是勤奋、敏感、沉默而坚韧的昆虫,它的网制得精巧而规矩,呈扇形张开,仿佛得到神助。

Such achievement cant help reminding us of those reticent people and some modest wise men.

这样的成绩,使人不由想起那些沉默寡言的人和一些谦虚朴素的智者。

So I remember the spider cant fly, but it can still spin the net in the air.

于是,我记住了蜘蛛不会飞翔,但它照样能把网结在空中。

Miracle is made by persistent people.

奇迹是由执著者创造的。

Wisdom Is the First Life

《智慧是第一生命》

A friend who I hadnt seen for many years called in.

一位多年不见的朋友来访。

It was always enjoyable to greet a friend from afar, made a cup of tea and talked about what happened after separation.

有朋自远方来,沏上一杯香茗,诉说别后之情,其乐融融。

During the dinner, the friend asked, “What is the most expensive in the world?”

席间,朋友问道:“世间何为贵?”

I replied, “Ive heard a master say, Integrity is the first wealth, Dharma is the first royal road and Wisdom is the first life.”

我说:“我曾听一位大师说过,诚信是第一财富,正法是第一坦道,智慧是第一生命。”

My friend asked, “Why is the wisdom the first life?

朋友说:“为什么说智慧是第一生命呢?

Human health is the support of all.

人的健康才是一切的支柱。

If you have 1,000,000-dollar wealth, those 0s that follow respectively represent money, beauty, status, reputation, happiness, family and so on, and the 1 ahead of them represents health.

如果你有百万财富,后面的0分别代表金钱、美丽、地位、名誉、快乐、家庭等等,而前面的那个1则是代表了健康。

With this 1, those 0s behind it can make sense.

有了这个1,后面的那些0才有了意义。

You see, even if youre wealthy, flourishing, beautiful of versatile, but if youre fragile, isnt your life so dull? ”

你想,即使腰缠万贯,事业发达,貌如天仙,多才多艺,如果你体弱多病,这样的人生岂不也是黯淡无光?”

I said, “I think that health is no doubt very important in this word, but without a belief a goal or a deep friendship, life will be bad.

我说:“我觉得人生在世,健康固然重要,但如果没有信念,没有目标,没有深情厚谊,生活质量就会差劲。

People feel troubled or confused, not because there is no healthy, but because there is no wisdom, because they do not realize the truth of boundless life.

人之所以烦恼横生、困惑茫然,并不是因为没有健康,而是因为没有智慧,因为没有了悟漫漫人生的真谛。

Sages or oracles all have great mind and wisdom; even with a weak body or hard life, he can also face life coolly and generously. Who can say such a life is of no value?”

凡圣贤哲人,无不胸襟恢弘,智慧超群,即使有人体弱多难,也能恬淡豁达直面人生,谁又能说这样的人生没有价值呢?”
