  做最好的自己才能更好爱人

  I used to believe that love meant putting everyone else and their needs first, before my own. While I do think there is some truth to that, in the sense that being a giving person is one of the ultimate acts of being a loving person, I came to realize that I must give to and love myself first and foremost.

  以前,我相信爱就意味着要把他人和他人的需求放在自己的需求之前。现在我仍然认为这种观点有一定的道理,因为作一个“施爱者”的最高境界之一就是作一个“给予者”。但是,我渐渐意识到,给予自己、爱自己才是最重要的。

  Here's why:

  原因如下:

  When you put everyone and everything else above you, you are no longer valuing yourself and your needs. And when you are not meeting your needs, and you don't take care of yourself (emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually), you can't be the best version of yourself to the special people in your life. So in essence, you don't love them at your full potential!

  当你把一切其他人、其他事都置于自己之上时,你就不能再看到自己的价值、考虑自己的需求了。而当你无法满足自己的需求时,你就不能(从心理上、生理上、思想上、精神上)好好照顾自己了。这样,对你生命中那些特别的人来说,你便无法成为那个最好的自己。所以,从本质上说,你没有尽自己一切潜能来爱他们!

  Here are some things to consider —

  你需要思考一下:

  1. Are you physically taking care of yourself? Do you nourishyourself with the right foods, get enough sleep, exercise, are at a healthy weight, and on top of your check-ups? If not, I betyour energy is low, you're tired and stressed, and your confidence isn't the highest (because you probably don't feel your best). Now think about how much more you could give to others when you aren't exhausted, you're happy with what you see in the mirror, and you aren't on edge with stress.

  1、你好好照顾自己的身体了吗?你有没有做到合理饮食以获得营养、得到足够的睡眠和锻炼、维持健康体重并保持体检各项指标都正常?如果没有,我敢说你的能量肯定很有限,你感到疲倦、压力很大,而且信心也不在最高值(因为你很可能不在最佳状态)。现在,想象一下,如果你不疲惫,乐于看到镜中的自己,而且没有因为压力而感到烦躁不安,你能为别人多做多少事啊!

  2. Are you emotionally and mentally healthy? As humans, we're so complex and having ups and downs is normal. But in general, assess where you stand emotionally. If it's in a healthy place and you can manage your emotions in a healthy way —great! But if you self-soothein destructiveways and have a negative attitude and energy about you, realize that it's not just affecting you, but others too. When you aren't an emotionally and mentally healthy person, that energy pours into everything you do, and everyone you're around will feel the effects, too.

  2、你的情绪和思想都是健康的吗?作为人类,我们是非常复杂的,心情时好时坏很正常。但是你可以总体评估一下自己的情绪状况。如果你的情绪很健康,而且你可以以一种健康的方式来掌控自己的情绪,那太棒了!但是,如果你的自我安慰方式是毁灭式的、对自己的态度消极悲观、充满负能量,那么你要意识到这种情况不仅会影响到你自己,还会影响到别人。如果你不是一个情绪、思想都健康的人,那么负能量会倾泻到你做的所有事情上,而你周围的每个人都会受到影响。

  3. How's your spirituality? In this sense, spirituality is about having an ultimate purpose and being in tunewith your true self. Do you wake up every day excited for what your life is about, and have gratitudefor all the abundance you already have? If not, you may not be listening and living to what your heart truly desires. Living this way long term, may affect the essence of your inner being and, in turn, may not allow you to show up your very best for the world.

  3、你的精神状况如何?在这里,精神状况指的是怀有一个终极人生目标,并且和真实的自己合拍。你是不是每天早晨醒来都会为自己的人生感到很兴奋,为你拥有的一切心怀感恩之情?如果不是,也许你没有倾听自己心中真实的渴望、没有活成真正的自己。长此以往,可能会影响到你的内在自我本质。话说回来,你也无法向这个世界呈现最棒的自己。

  Be kind to yourself.It can be difficult to put your health and wellbeing first when life is demanding between your career, family, friendships, relationships, and so on. If you can think of any ways to improve your wellbeing and love yourself more, start today! Take a baby step towards this. Perhaps try getting an hour more of sleep. Move your body in a way that feels good. Take time for yourself to be with your thoughts and without distractionsand feel that peace.

  善待自己吧。把自己的健康和幸福放在前面可能会很难,因为我们需要平衡事业、家庭、友谊、爱情,等等。但如果你想到什么方法,可以提高自己的幸福感,可以更爱自己一些,那么就从今天开始实践吧!先向这个方向迈出一小步也是好的——比如,尽量多睡一小时,以自己感到舒服的方式活动活动身体,拿出时间与自己对话,远离纷扰,感受那份安宁。

  你和我的伊甸园

  Our Eden

  I do trust, my dearest, that you have been employing this bright day for both of us; for I have spent it in my dungeon, and the only light that broke upon me was when I opened your letter.

  我确信,我最亲爱的,你为我们选定了今天这个晴朗的好日子;我在城堡主楼困了一天,唯一的一线光是打开你的信时才得到的。

  I am sometimes driven to wish that you and I could mount upon a cloud (as we used to fancy in those heavenly walks of ours). And be home quite out of sight and hearing of the world; for now all the people in the world seem to come between us. How happy were Adam and Eve!

  我不时产生——个愿望,我多么想和你驾上一朵白云 (我们在醉人的漫步中常常这样幻想),远离世俗喧嚣;因为现在似乎世界上什么样的人都与我们在一起。亚当和夏娃曾经多么幸福啊!

  There was no third person to come between them, and all the infinity around them only seemed to press their hearts closer together. We love one another as well as there is no silent and love garden of Eden for us. Will you sail away with me to discover some summer island?

  有第三者介入他们中间,而他们周围无限的空间似乎把他们的心贴得更紧了。我们像他们一样彼此相爱;但对我们来说,却没有静谧可爱的伊甸园。你为什么不跟我一道远航寻觅夏之岛?

  Do you not think that god has reserved one for us, ever since the beginning of the world? Foolish that I am to raise a question of it, since we have found such an Eden such an island sacred to us two whenever we have been together!

  你不认为上帝从一开始就保留了这样一个岛给我们吗?既然我们已经找到了这样的伊甸园,我提出这样一个问题不是太愚蠢了吗?我们已经有了只有你我专用的伊甸园……只要我们在一起!

  Men we are the Adam and Eve of a virgin earth. Now, good - bye; for voices are babbling around me and I should not wonder if you were to hear the echo of them while you read this letter.

  我们就是一块处女地上的亚当和夏娃。现在,再见了;因为我的周围一片嘈杂。不知你在读此信时,是否有这些声音的回声萦绕耳际。

  天才养成攻略

  Lesson one: New challenges require new ways of thinking

  面对新挑战,要有新思路

  Part car, part jet fighter, part spaceship, Bloodhound SSC aims to be the first land vehicle to break the 1,000mph barrier. One of the key challenges has been to design the wheels. How do you create the fastest wheels in history, make them stable and reliable at supersonic speeds, and with limited resources?

  部分汽车、部分喷气式飞机、部分宇宙飞船,猎犬号超级汽车的目标是做世界上第一辆时速突破1000英里的汽车。而这面临的一项关键挑战是车轮的设计。如果换做是你,你会如何在有限的资源下发明出超音速汽车上用的轮子呢?

  After much deliberation, and devising ideas that pushed the boundaries of material technology, Mark Chapman, chief engineer of the Bloodhound project said the team decided to take a step back and change the way they were trying to solve problems. “There’s very little we’ve actually developed that’s new,” he says, “what’s unique is how we apply technologies.”

  猎犬号项目的总工程师马克·查普曼思来想去,觉得材料还是不够好。最后他和他的团队决定退回一步、换个角度看有没有别的办法。“我们实际创新的东西并不多”,马克说:“我们的独特之处在于应用技术的方式别具一格。”

  They adopted an approach called the design of experiments – a mathematical technique of problem solving through doing lots of little experiments and then looking at the statistics all glued together. “All of a sudden, where we’d been knocking our head against the wall for maybe two, three, four months, we came up with a wheel design that would hold together and was strong enough,” he says.

  他们采用实验设计的方法做了很多的小实验,综合所得的数据再得出精确设计。“花了三四个月绞尽脑汁做尽各种实验之后,很突然地我们做出了一个大胆的设计:把各种可用的(飞机、飞船所用的)技术都融合在一辆车上,从而使它足够强大。”马克说。

  Lesson two: Let evidence shape your opinion

  观点要用证据来证明

  Like his peers, geophysicist Steven Jacobsen from Northwestern University believed that water on Earth originated from comets. But by studying rocks, which allow scientists to peer back in time, he discovered water hidden inside ringwoodite, which lies in the Earth’s mantle, and which suggests that the oceans gradually made its way out of the planet’s interior many centuries ago.

  美国西北大学地球物理学家史蒂文·雅各布森曾认为,地球上的水源于彗星。但通过对岩石的研究,他发现地幔的林伍德石里面也藏有水,这一发现表明或许在N个世纪之前,海洋是从地球内部自己慢慢溢出来的。

  “I had a pretty hard time convincing others,” he admits. Yet two key pieces of evidence uncovered this year seem to support his point of view. Time will tell whether the new theories are true, and there may be further twists to the tale. “But thinking about the fact that you may be the first person to see something for the first time doesn’t happen very often,” he says. “When it does it’s thrilling.”

  “那时候我难说服别的学者相信这个。”史蒂文说。但是今年新发现的两个关键证据似乎支持了他的理论。所以,一个新理论的正确与否可能需要时间来慢慢印证,在被世人接受前可能会经历很多曲折。“但是如果你发现你是第一个发现这个规律的人,且时间又证明你是对的之后,你会倍受鼓舞的。”史蒂文说。

  Lesson three: It really is 99% perspiration

  天才的99%确实是汗水

  Sheila Nirenberg at Cornell University is trying to develop a new prosthetic device for treating blindness. Key to this was cracking the code that transmits information from the eye to the brain. “Once I realised this, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep – all I wanted to do was work,” says Nirenberg.

  康奈尔大学希拉·尼伦伯格正在研究治疗失明的新型假体,其中破解眼睛与大脑的信息交流密码是最关键的。“我意识到这一点之后,就吃不下饭、睡不着觉,只想全身心投入工作。”尼伦伯格说。

  “Sometimes I’m exhausted and I get burnt out,” she adds. “But then I get an email from somebody in crisis or somebody who’s getting macular degeneration, and they can’t see their own children’s faces, and it is like, ‘How can I possibly complain?’ It gives me the energy to just go back and keep doing it.”

  “每次觉得筋疲力尽、江郎才尽的时候,我都会收到一些到正处于危险状态马上要失明的、或是患有黄斑部退化症的病人的邮件,这些人将没办法看清自己孩子的长相、无法看这五颜六色的世界。每当这个时候,我就跟自己说‘我怎么能够抱怨呢’,然后就又动力十足的继续工作。”

  Lesson four: The answer isn’t always what you expect

  结果并不总是和预想的一样

  Sylvia Earle has spent decades trying to see the ocean with new eyes. Her “dream machine” is a submarine that could take scientists all the way to the bottom of the deepest ocean floor. What sort of material could best withstand the types of pressure you would encounter thousands of miles below the ocean surface? “It could be steel, it could be titanium, it could be some sort of ceramic, or some kind of aluminium system,” says Earle. “But glass is the ultimate material.” By her estimates, a glass sphere about four-to-six inches (10-15cm) thick should be able safely explore the ocean depths she dreams of exploring.

  西尔维亚·厄尔花了几十年的时间试图让人们用新的方式亲近海底,她的“梦想号”潜艇可以让科学家潜入到最深的海底。那种材料才能够承受住深海的巨大压力呢?厄尔说:“我想过用钢、钛、陶瓷等,但最终发现其实玻璃才是终极王者。”根据她的预计,一块10-15厘米厚的玻璃板就能让她进入梦寐以求的那片深海世界。

  Glass is the oldest material known to man and one of the least understood, says Tony Lawson, Earle’s engineering director at Deep Ocean and Exploration Research Marine. “It has a higgledy-piggledy molecular structure a bit like a liquid, rather than the ordered lattices often found in other solids. As a result, when glass is evenly squeezed from all sides – as it would be under the ocean – the molecules cram closer together and form a tighter structure.

  厄尔的项目技术总监称,虽然玻璃是人类已知的最古老材料,但是我们对它的了解却甚少。“玻璃的分子结构有点像是液体,排列方式没有一般固体的有规律。因此,当玻璃被海洋里的压力从四面八方压迫时,它的分子会被压在一起,形成更紧密的结构。”

  Lesson five: A little luck goes a long way

  偶尔的一点好运也可以维持很久

  It was hailed as one of the biggest success stories in the history of space exploration – 20 years of planning ended earlier this year with the Philae lander rendezvousing with Comet 67P over 300 million miles (480 million kilometres) away from Earth.

  菲莱探测器被誉为太空探索史上最大跨越之一,历经20年的策划期终于在年初发射并成功在离地球四亿八千万公里的67P彗星上着陆。

  The biggest challenge, says Stephan Ulamec, manager of the Philae lander programme, was how to design a probe to land on a body whose makeup they had little knowledge about. “We had no idea of the size, we had no idea of the day-night cycle, which influences the thermal design, we had no idea of the gravity, so how fast would the lander impact, we had no idea how the surface looked,” he says.

  据菲莱项目的负责人斯蒂芬介绍,在这20年里遇到的最大挑战是对彗星构造了解较少,不知道该如何设计这个探测器。“我们不知道彗星的昼夜循环情况会影响保热设计,不知道彗星的重力也无法预测探测器着陆后对转速的影响,甚至不清楚彗星表面的样子。”

  They needed to create design parameters that could cope with an extremely wide range of possible comet structures – but banked on the comet being a relatively even potato shape with enough flat surfaces for the probe to land on. Even then, not everything went to plan, and two decades of meticulous planning could have failed within minutes at touchdown. Philae's anchoring harpoons didn't fire as planned, and it bounced off the comet before settling onto its icy surface and successfully beaming data back to its relieved creators.

  科学家们需要建立尽可能符合多种彗星结构的设计参数,但是还是得寄希望于彗星的表面要够平坦。可即便是花了20年设计、缜密计划过的菲莱还是在着陆的几分钟里有点小失败:“鱼叉”系统未如计划打开,无法准确钉入彗星表面。不过幸运的是,菲莱还是成功地把数据发回了地球。

  Lesson six: Genius is indefinable

  “天才”定义不明

  “It’s a funny word: the word ‘genius’,” says Nirenberg. “I just sort of ignore it and just go on with life. You just do what you do independent of whatever label’s attached to you. I don’t know really how else to explain it.”

  “天才这个词很有趣”,尼伦伯格说,“我常常忽略这个标签继续走自己的路。只需要抛掉别人在你身上贴的各种标签做自己想做到的事就好了。因为所谓天才真是判断标准不一、无法解释的事情。”
