宁静的真谛

更新时间:2010-12-23    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:草儿整理

There once was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures. But there were only two he really liked, and he had to choose between them。


很久以前,曾有一个国王向画家们悬赏征集一幅最能表现安宁主题的画。画家们纷纷尝试。然而国王看完所有的画后,只挑中了两幅,他得在二者中择其一。

One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.


第一幅画画的是一个宁静的湖泊。水波不兴的湖面就像一面完美的镜子,为静静挺立的群山所环抱。湖的上方则是白丝绒般的云朵,飘浮于蔚蓝的苍穹。所有看到此画的人无不称赞其对宁静主题的完美体现。

The other picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky, from which rain fell and in which lightning played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming wate**ll. This did not look peaceful at all.
另一幅画画的也是群山。但这些山却崎岖不平,寸草不生。群山上空是狂怒的天空,电闪雷鸣,暴雨倾盆。在山的一侧还有瀑布翻腾而下,撞击出白色的水沫。这幅画看来毫无安宁可言。

 


 

 

But when the king looked closely, he saw behind the wate**ll a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest—in perfect peace.
但是国王凝神细看的时候,却发现瀑布后面岩石的缝隙中有一小丛灌木,一只鸟妈妈已在灌木丛中筑好了自己的巢。在如此狂奔四泄的瀑布旁,鸟妈妈却安详地端坐巢中,完全没受到打扰。

Which picture do you think won the prize? The king chose the second picture. Do you know why?
你认为哪一幅赢得了赏金?国王选中了第二幅。知道是什么缘故吗?
“Because,”explained the king, “peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still 国王解释道:“因为安宁并不是指置身于一个没有噪音、麻烦或者艰苦的工作当中,安宁是指处于这些事情当中还能保持心中的宁静,这才是真正意义上的宁静
