放手、接受 / Let go,Accept

looking across the field

今天從攝影師Bonnie Tsang的Tumblr看到的一句話。四年前人生驟變時, 我領悟了這個道理。任何的東西/事情, 強求及自私的盼望都是沒有用的。接受與了解才是王道。

到頭來: 意念來來去去, 人與人之間的關係來來去去, 痛苦來來去去。 我發現我若總是死命抓住我希望能發生的故事, 便一定會產生哀怨及痛苦。 如今我找到了讓自己心情最能平衡的點 - 放開意念, 大膽的去接受所有人世物的本質。

I saw this quote from photographer Bonnie Tsang's Tumblr. I learned precisely what this quote is about from the life-changing event four years ago. Any forced wish or selfish expectation will never gain you anything, acceptance and understanding is key.

The bottom line is this: thoughts come and go, relationships come and go, pain comes and goes. I’ve discovered that clinging to my stories about what I think I want and need is a surefire recipe for suffering. Today I’ve come to a place of real peacefulness, of letting go and accepting things as being just what they are and nothing more.
