远离物欲

你绝对不是你的物质本身。这样说也许不是很贴切。许多人很难放弃一些东西,因为他们对这些东西存在一种感情,试着去忘记一件很重要的事情吧——物质是一种状态,不是活生生的生物,不管这个物质是什么,如果它不是另一个活生生的人人或者动物的话,它只是一个物体。是的,你可以喜欢,可以搜集,可以出售,你可以做任何你想做的事情。——但无论你做什么,它还是仅仅是一个物体,是一个东西。幸福舒适需要的不是物质,是生活,是一种给你空间让你呼吸,发现真实的情感,发掘和探索周围的生活。试着去创造无物质的幸福才是生活的精华与本质,没有了所谓的物质,你会拥有很好的生活。
You are most definitely not the stuff you own. Not even close. Many people have trouble getting rid of stuff because they have an emotional attachment to it, forgetting one important thing – “it” is a static, non-living item. No matter what “it” is, if it is not another human or an animal, “it” is just a thing. Sure, you can like it, collect it, sell it, do whatever – but it is still just a thing. And to live a happy, comfortable life, you don’t need things – you need a life. One that gives you space to breath; space to discover your true passion; space to take a look around and explore. By trying to create happiness with stuff you are missing out on the very essence of life itself…even without your stuff, you should be able to have a nice life.
无论发生了什么事,我们都还拥有我们自己。我们的东西会消失,我们的家园能被烧毁,我们能搬到一个找不到我们不认识的地方去,但是最后,我们还拥有我们自己。就如一个理论家告诉我们的“没有任何人和任何事能让你感到被抛弃,只有你自己有可能做这件事”。真理不需要更多的语言。
No matter what happens, we still have ourselves. Our stuff could disappear, our homes can burn down, we can relocate to a town where we don’t know a soul. But in the end we still have “us”, and as a therapist once told me, “No one and nothing can make you feel abandoned. Only you are possible of doing that“. Truer words were never spoken. Look closely, even a lizard who wandered in from outside likes my clean, uncluttered setup!
不要把我搞迷惑了——我喜欢高科技,喜欢我的沙发,喜欢我的床,我的书。——我喜欢我绝大多数的衣服,我喜欢住在舒适的寓所。但是这不是我没有过多的拥有明显理由使用的如此随意的“物质”。对我而言最重要的是感情,家人,我为之努力的生活,等等...不是那些填满我家的那些东西。拥有一个规划得当的家给了我时间和空间集中在对我生活有意义的东西上面。而不是花时间去从一堆凌乱的东西中找出我早上要穿的鞋。
Don’t get me wrong – I like my technology, my couch, my bed, and my books. I like most of my clothes, and I enjoy having a nice place to live. But what I don’t have much use for is just random “stuff” that I hold on to for no apparent reason. What is most important to me is relationships, family, what I do for a living, etc…not items that fill up my home. Having an organized home gives me the time and space to concentrate on those things that bring meaning to my life, rather than having to spend time digging through clutter to find a pair of shoes in the morning!
对你而言,把你从你的物质中分离有困难吗?试着去做10件有挑战的事情吧。我一直致于于这件事情,每周放弃十件东西。为你的纪念品们拍照片以另一种方式存在于你身边,寻找你周围的慈善机构,开始把你的东西捐献给更需要的人。——从你的空间拿走的东西仅仅是东西而己,到了把你的快乐和这些东西分离的时候了。开始关注真正重要的东西吧。我向你保证这决不是小玩竟儿或凌乱的东西。
Having trouble separating yourself from the “stuff” in your life? Try doing the 10 Things Challenge I have been running on the site here, where we get rid of 10 things each week. Take pictures of your mementos to “keep” them around. Find out where the local Goodwill facility is and start donating your items to those less fortunate than yourself. All that stuff taking up space in your life is just stuff – and it’s time to keep your happiness separate from it. Start focusing on what’s truly important. I guarantee you it’s not your knickknacks and clutter!
