  幸运的妈妈

  Lucky Mother

  A young mother believed that it was very wrong to waste any food when there were so many hungry people in the world. One evening, she was giving her small daughterher tea before putting her to bed. First she gave her a slice of fresh brown bread and butter, but the child said that she did not want it like that. She asked for some jam on her bread as well.

  Her mother looked at her for a few seconds and then said, "When I was a small girl like you, Lucy, I was always given either bread and butter, or bread and jam, but never bread with butter and jam.

  Lucy looked at her mother for a few moments with pity in her eyes and then said to her kindly, "Aren't you pleased that you've come to live with us now?"

  幸运的妈妈的短篇故事翻译:

  一位年轻的母亲认为,世界上还有很多受饥饿的人,浪费食物真不应该。有天晚上,在安排幼小的女儿睡觉之前,她给女儿喂夜宵。她先给她一片新鲜的黑面包跟黄油,但孩子说她不喜好这样吃。她还要一些果酱涂在面包上。

  母亲看了女儿多少秒钟,随即说道,“露茜,当我象你一样小的时候,总是吃面包加黄油,或者面包加果酱,素来不面包既加黄油又加果酱。”

  露茜看了母亲一会儿,眼中露出恻隐的脸色,而后她柔声说:“你现在能跟我们生活在一起难道不感到高兴吗?”等短篇故事内容。

  学会生活在现实中

  Learn to live in the present moment

  To a large degree,the measure of our peace of mind is determined by how much we are able to live on the present moment. Irrespective of what happened yesterday or last year, and what may or may not happen tomorrow, the present moment is where you are---always!

  我们内心是否平和在很大程度上是由我们是否能生活在现实之中所决定的.不管昨天或去年发生了什么,不管明天可能发生或不发生什么,现实才是你时时刻刻所在之处.

  Without question, many of us have mastered the neurotic art of spending much of our lives worrying about variety of things--all at once. We allow past problems and future concerns dominate your present moments, so much so that we end up anxious,frustrated,depressed,and hopeless. On the flip side, we also postpone our gratification, our stated priorities, and our happiness, often convincing that "someday" will be much better than today. Unfortunately, the same mental dynamics that tell us to look toward the future will only repeat themselves so that 'someday' never actually arrives. Jhon Lennone once said, "Life is what is happening while we are busy making other plans." When we are busy making 'other plans', our children are busy growing up, the people we love are moving away and dying, our bodies are getting out of shape, and our dreams are slipping away. In short, we miss out on life.

  毫无疑问,我们很多人掌握了一种神经兮兮的艺术,即把生活中的大部分时间花在为种种事情担心忧虑上--而且常常是同时忧虑许多事情.我们听凭过去的麻烦和未来的担心控制我们此时此刻的生活,以至我们整日焦虑不安,委靡不振,甚至沮丧绝望.而另一方面我们又推迟我们的满足感,推迟我们应优先考虑的事情,推迟我们的幸福感,常常说服自己"有朝一日"会比今天更好.不幸的是,如此告戒我们朝前看的大脑动力只能重复来重复去,以至"有朝一日"哟贫农公元不会真的来临.约翰.列侬曾经说过:"生活就是当我们忙于制定别的计划时发生的事."当我们忙于指定种种"别的计划"时,我们的孩子在忙于长大,我们挚爱的人里去了甚至快去世了,我们的体型变样了,而我们的梦想也在消然溜走了.一句话,我们错过了生活.

  Many people lives as if life is a dress rehearsal for some later date. It isn't. In fact, no one have a guarantee that he or she will be here tomorrow. Now is the only time we have, and the only time that we have any control over. When we put our attention on the present moment, we push fear from our minds. Fear is the concern over events that might happen in the future--we won't have enoughh money,our children will get into trouble,we will get old and die,whatever.

  许多人的生活好象是某个未来日子的彩排.并非如此.事实上,没人能保证他或她肯定还活着.现在是我们所拥有的唯一时间,现在也是我们能控制的唯一的时间.当我们将注意力放在此时此刻时,我们就将恐惧置于脑后.恐惧就是我们担忧某些事情会在未来发生--我们不讳有足够的钱,我们的孩子会惹上麻烦,我们会变老,会死去,诸如此类.

  To combat fear, the best stradegy is to learn to bring your attention back to the present. Mark Twain said,"I have been through some terrible things in life, some of which actually happened." I don't think I can say it any better. Practice keeping your attention on the here and now. Your effort will pay great dividends.

  若要克服恐惧心理,最佳策略是学会将你的注意力拉回此时此刻.马克.吐温说过:"我经历过生活中一些可怕的事情,有些的确发生过."我想我说不出比这更具内涵的话.经常将注意力集中于此情此景,此时此刻,你的努力终会有丰厚的报偿.

  3\How High Can You Jump?

  Flea trainers have observed a strange habit of fleas while training them. Fleas are trained by putting them in a cardboard box with a top on it. The fleas will jump up and hit the top of the cardboard box over and over and over again.

  As you watch them jump and hit the lid, something very interesting becomes obvious. The fleas continue to jump, but they are no longer jumping high enough to hit the top.

  When you take off the lid, the fleas continue to jump, but they will not jump out of the box. They won't jump out because they can't jump out. Why? The reason is simple. They have conditioned themselves to jump just so high.

  Once they have conditioned themselves to jump just so high, that's all they can do!

  Many times, people do the same thing. They restrict themselves and never reach their potential. Just like the fleas, they fail to jump higher, thinking they are doing all they can do.

  跳蚤训练人在训练跳蚤时发现跳蚤有一个奇怪的习惯。若把跳蚤放在一个有顶盖的盒子里,他们会不断地跳起来,撞击顶盖。

  你观察他们跳起来撞击顶盖,会慢慢发现一个有趣的现象。他们仍会跳起来,但不会再撞到顶盖。

  当你把顶盖拿开时,跳蚤还会接着跳,但却不会跳出盒子。为什么呢?原因很简单。它们已经习惯了只跳那么高。

  一旦它们习惯只跳这么高之后,它们就只能跳这么高了。

  很多时候,人们也是一样。他们自己限制了自己,从来不去发掘自己的潜力。就像跳蚤一样,没能跳得更高,还以为已经到了自己能力的极限。

  Russell on Affection (罗素论爱)

  The best type of affection is reciprocally life-giving; each receives affection with joy and gives it without effort, and each finds the whole world more interesting in consequence of the existence of this reciprocal happiness. There is, however, another kind, by no means uncommon, in which one person sucks the vitality of the other, one receives what the other gives, but gives almost nothing in return. Some very vital people belong to this bloodsucking type. They extract the vitality from one victim after another, but while they prosper and grow interesting, those upon whom they live grow pale and dim and dull. Such people use others as means to their own ends, and never consider them as ends in themselves. Fundamentally they are not interested in those whom for the moment they think they love; they are interested only in the stimulus to their owe activities, perhaps of a quite impersonal sort. Evidently this springs from some defect in their nature, but it is one not altogether easy either to diagnose of to cure. It is a characteristic frequently associated with great ambition, and is rooted, I should say, in an unduly one-sided view of what makes human happiness. Affection in the sense of a genuine reciprocal interest of two persons in each other, not solely as means to each other’s good, but rather as a combination having a common good, is one of the most important elements of real happiness, and the man whose ego is so enclosed within steel walls that this enlargement of it is impossible misses the best that life has to offer, however successful he may be in his career. A too powerful ego is a prison from which a man must escape if he is to enjoy the world to the full. A capacity for genuine affection is one of the marks of the man who has escaped form this prison of self. To receive affection is by no means enough; affection which is received should liberate the affection which is to be given, and only where both exist in equal measure does affection achieve its best possibilities.

  最好的那种爱是彼此愉悦的爱;彼此很愉快地接受,很自然地给出,并且由于有了这种互惠的快乐,彼此都觉得整个世界更有趣味。然而,还有一种决非少见的爱,那就是一方吸收着另一方的活力,接受着另一方的给出,但他这一方几乎毫无回报。某些生命力极旺的人便属于这吸血的一类。他们把一个又一个牺牲者的活力吸净,但是当他们越发生机勃勃,兴致盎然之时,那些被榨取的人却变得越来越苍白、黯淡和迟钝。这种人总是把他人当作工具来实现自己的目标,却从不考虑他人也有他自己的目标。他们一时以为他们爱着那些人,其实那些人根本引不起他们的兴趣;他们感兴趣的不过是为自己的活动添些刺激,而他们的活动也许当属全无人格的那种。这种情形显然源于他们本性上的某种缺陷,但是这种缺陷既不容易诊断也不容易治疗。它往往与极大的野心有关,同时也是由于他们总是不恰当地从单方面去看待人生幸福的缘故。两人真正相互关心意义的爱,不仅是促进彼此幸福的手段,而且是促进共同幸福的手段,是真正快乐的最重要因素之一。凡是把自我禁锢起来不能扩展的人,必然错失人生所能提供的最好的东西,不管他在事业上如何成功。太强的自我是一座监狱,你若想充分地享受人生,就得从这座监狱中逃脱。能有真正的爱,这是一个人已逃出自我监狱的标志之一。光接受爱是绝对不够的;接受的爱应当能激发你奉献出自己的爱,惟有当接受的爱和奉献出的爱等量存在时,爱才能达到它的最佳状态。
