Lin Qingxuan : I often think about one or two, but do n’t think about it
A friend bought a pen and paper platform and asked me to write a few words for him to hang it in the living room of his new home. This made me feel a bit embarrassed because I knew that the characters were not written well, not to mention that I hadn't written calligraphy for many years.
The friend said, "What are you afraid of? I am honored to hang your words, I am not afraid anymore, what are you afraid of?"
In front of my friends, I displayed paper and polished ink, and wrote four words, "I often think about one or two."
A friend said, "What does this mean?"
I said, "It means that my words are not well written. When you see this word, please forgive me, think about one or two of my benefits, and forgive me."
Seeing my joking attitude, my friend said, "Serious, what does it mean?"
"As the saying goes," Everything is unsatisfactory in life " , most of the unsatisfactory things in our lives account for most of the life . Therefore, living is painful. But after deducting 80% or 90% of the unsatisfactory, there are at least 10% If we want to live a happy life, we must always think about what is good and good, so that we will be glad, know how to cherish, and we will not be overwhelmed by unlucky things. "
The friend heard it, was very happy, and went home with "often thinking one or two".
A few months later, he came to visit me and asked me for a word again, saying, "Every day in the office, I was exhausted and tired, and when I got home, I was very happy to see the picture" often thought one or two ". But the wall was too big and the words seemed Too small, write a few more words! "
For good friends, I have always been responsive, so I wrote the second line of "I do n’t think eight or nine" for "Often want one or two", and wrote a horizontal batch of "Ruyi", and in the middle, I drew a freehand vase flower.
Unexpectedly, a few months later, I was troubled by many bizarre legends and rumors. A friend called one day and said that he was sitting in front of the words I wrote in the living room. He said, "I can't think of anything to comfort you. I read the words you wrote to you: I often think about it, don't think Good luck, everything! "
I was touched by a friend's call. I often think that it is easy to add icing on the cakes of other people's celebrations, but it is very difficult to send charcoal in the misery of others. The ratio is about "eight-nine" and "one-two". It's not true friends who can't give charcoal in the snow, of course, even those who are down.
However, after a person is forty years old, he has probably exercised his ability to "be indifferent" in his life, and he does not care about icing on the cake, sending charcoal in the snow, or falling down. That is because we have already experienced the pain and frustration of life, and also experienced many emotional encounters and separations , and slowly found out the positive, happy, and positive thoughts in life. This kind of meditation is the meditation of "often thinking one or two".
The "often think one or two" vision is to find a dawn of dawn in the heavy clouds; it is to open some quiet news in the rolling red dust; it is to rise to the surface when it is about to suffocate, and have a deep breath .
Life is already hard enough. If we sum up the 50 years of unsatisfactory things, it will definitely make us difficult. Life and feelings are in a state of suffering, sometimes helpless, but if even thought and mood are in a state of suffering, it is asking for hardships and suffering.
I have enjoyed reading biographies and memoirs of big people since I was a child, and slowly came up with a formula: all big people are suffering and their lives are almost the true testimony of "life is not as good as everything", but when they face suffering They can also keep thinking positively. They can “think about one or two often.” In the end, they go beyond suffering, and suffering becomes the most fertile nourishment in life.
It is not their suffering that deeply touches me, because suffering is everywhere; what impresses me is their persistence , optimism, and courage in the face of suffering .
It turns out that "ruyi" or "unsatisfactory" is not determined by the occasion of life, but by the moment of thought.
It turned out that the quality of life is not "eight or nine", but "one or two".
It turns out that suffering is counted for those who are caught in it, but quality for those who transcend. Quantity accumulates and quality activates.
Since the bitterness of life is only a process, why should we give up our own thoughts to cater to each process?
Just live happily in the moment, let every moment be affectionate, righteous, glowing, and poetic!
