「你的一天,足以改變世界」你可能想「別傻了,太誇張了!」或者「怎麼可能?」

你也許會想,「全世界人口總數大約七十憶,身為70億分之1的我,只有70億分之1的人日子變得平和,這意義不大啊?」

那麼你想想看,如果你也祈願「今天會是美好的一天」,並且重視這一天,把這一天過好,看看會發生什麼事。 

You might think, “It doesn’t mean much that just one seven-billionth in the world becomes peaceful.”
Then think about it and see what would happen, if you wished, “This day today will be a good day,” and you honored the day, so that you had a better day, too. 

旅人分享這個想法 ──

有時候是面對在樹蔭下休息的一群老人。

He shared this idea.
Sometimes with old people under a tree in peace.


 

是的,因為你和我的努力,結果這一天對於世界70億分之2的人口來說,是平和幸福的一天。

70億分之2=70億分之1×2

你了解了嗎?與只有我一個人努力相比,今天,這個世界變成兩倍的平和幸福。 

Yes. That day would be a peaceful and happy day for two seven-billionths of the people in the world, as both you and I tried.
Two seven-billionths = One seven-billionth x 2 
Do you understand ?  Today the world has become two times more peaceful, happier and better, compared to when only I myself tried. 

旅人分享這個想法 ──

有時候是面對好奇地圍繞著他的一群孩子。

He shared this idea.
Sometimes with children who gathered around him curiously.       


 

你的一天,是世界的一天

「世界」離你並不遠。

你度過今天的方式,會在你的家裡、學校、工作場合、社區裡創造平和的氣氛,而這股平和氣氛,會造就善良的國度與更平和的世界。

請你試著想像一下,

如果你今天可以微笑,如果你今天可以做一些善舉,你身邊有多少人可以得到撫慰? 

Your day is a day in the world.
The world is not far away from you. 
The way you live your day today will create peace in your family, in your school, at your workplace and in your community, and it will lead to mindful nations and a more peaceful world.
Just imagine.
If you can smile today.  If you can conduct actions of compassion today.
How many people around you will be comforted ?

 

讓日子熠熠生輝的大哉問


你能為你在乎的人做些什麼?

保持微笑,維持健康,關心對方的感受,仔細聆聽對方所說的話,表達你真誠的意見,傳達感激之意,保有寬容之心……你有很多事可以做。

What can you do for those whom you care about ?
Keeping a smile, maintaining good health, caring about how others feel, listening carefully to what others have to say, expressing your candid opinions, showing gratitude, being patient…There are many things that you can do.


▍你是否認真看待你內心的聲音? 

同一件事的涵義,會因為情況不同而有多種不同的詮釋。試著以最純淨的心思,想想什麼對你而言是重要的,你會從中發現寶貴的一課。 

Do you take your “inner knowing” seriously ? The meaning of an event can be interpreted in many different ways.
Try to imagine what that means to you through your honest mind.  You will be able to find some very important lesson in that event.


▍你想成為什麼樣的人?

溫和的人, 單純的人, 總是面帶微笑的人,不說謊的人,誠實的人,親切的人,體貼的人,值得信賴的人,品格高尚的人,有德行的人……這就是你的「生活態度」。

What kind of person do you want to become ? A gentle person, a pure person, a person who always smiles, a person who does not lie, a sincere person, a kind person, an attentive person, a trustworthy person, a graceful person, a person of virtue…That would be your conscious way of life.


▍你現在正在微笑嗎?

祈願你每天的生活中都充滿微笑。祈願你的人生,藉由你的意志,成為綻放笑顏的美麗人生。

重視每一個今天,努力把日子過好。

就像旅人所預言「你的一天,足以改變世界」,年輕人從自己開始,從他的周遭開始,慢慢實現了一個更美好的世界。他的人生裡,有許多笑顏。

Are you smiling now ? May many smiles fill your days and your life.
May your life be a wonderful one filled with many smiles created by your conscious efforts. Honoring the day every day and living a better life.
As the traveler predicted sharing this idea of “Your day will change the world”

he manifested a better world starting from himself and where he lived.
His life was filled with many smiles.
