發現與自我突破(一)

法友心得分享
馬來西亞 法尹

I once read a book and it said that our mind is like a garden. We have to always look after this garden consistently in order for it to flourish healthily.

我曾經讀過一本書,書中提及我們的心就像一座花園。我們要常常照顧這座花園,讓花園(的花卉)健康綻放。

This is a portrait of my inner-self contributing to the monastery. I think the most profound thing I did was contributing my imagination and artistic skills to the monastery. I think the things I did did not worth much, but it still felt a certain sense of worth in it. Although my mind and heart are contradictory, the surroundings gave me a sense of purpose and it felt that I made a difference to others.

這是一幅描繪我自己對道場所做的貢獻的內心自畫像。我想,貢獻我的想像力以及繪畫技巧是我對道場所做最有意義的事。我覺得我所做的事不是非常重大,但還是覺得它有一些貢獻。雖然我的內心是矛盾的,但周圍的環境給了我一個目的,而它讓我與別人有所不同。

The interactions between me and other people were always a challenge. This time over here at Taiwan, I felt more natural. I did not take people’s opinions personally as I used to. My heart felt bigger and dare to be more adventurous than I used to be. I do not have to force myself to be brave. I felt that I am brave. 

(對我來說)與別人交流溝通常常是一個挑戰。這次在台灣,我感覺更自然了。我不再像過往一樣,對別人的看法過度敏感並一直放在心裡。我感覺到我的心變得更廣大,也比以前更具有冒險精神。我不再需要強迫自己變得勇敢。我認為我已經變得勇敢了。
