When I Started Loving Myself

当我开始爱自己



AUTHENTICITY 真实

As I began to love myself,

I found that anguish and emotional suffering

are only warning signs

that I was living against my own truth.


Today, I know, this is

"AUTHENTICITY".


当我真正开始爱自己,

我才认识到,

所有的痛苦和情感的折磨,

都只是提醒我:

我的生活违背了自己的本心。


今天我明白了,这叫做

『真实』。


RESPECT  尊重

As I began to love myself,

I understood how much

it can offend somebody

as I try to force my desires on this person,

even though I knew the time was not right,

and the person was not ready for it,

and even though this person was me.


Today I call it

"RESPECT".


当我真正开始爱自己,

我才懂得,

把自己的愿望强加于人,

是多么的无礼,

就算我知道,时机并不成熟,

那人也还没有做好准备,

就算那个人就是我自己。


今天我明白了,这叫做

『尊重』。


MATURITY  成熟

As I began to love myself,

I stopped craving for a different life,

and I could see that

everything that surrounded me

was inviting me to grow.


Today I call it

"MATURITY".


当我开始爱自己,

我不再渴求不同的人生,

我知道任何发生在我身边的事情,

都是对我成长的邀请。


如今,我称之为

『成熟』。


SELF-CONFIDENCE  自信

As I began to love myself,

I understood that at any circumstance,

I am in the right place, at the right time,

and everything happens

at the exactly right moment,

so I could be calm.


Today I call it

"SELF-CONFIDENCE".


当我开始爱自己,

我才明白我其实一直都在恰好的时机、

恰好的地方、恰好的时间,

我才明白发生的一切都恰到好处,

从此我得以平静。


今天我明白了,这叫做

『自信心』。


HONESTY  诚实

As I began to love myself,

I quit steeling my own time,

and I stopped designing huge projects

for the future.

Today, I only do what brings me

joy and happiness,

things I love to do

and that make my heart cheer,

and I do them in my own way

and in my own rhythm.


Today I call it

"HONESTY".


当我开始真正爱自己,

我不再牺牲自己的自由时间,

不再去勾画什么宏伟的明天。

今天我只做有趣和快乐的事,

做自己热爱,让心欢喜的事,

用我的方式,以我的韵律。


今天我明白了,这叫做

『诚实』。


LOVE OF ONESELF  爱自己

As I began to love myself,

I freed myself of anything

that is no good for my health –

food, people, things, situations,

and everything that drew me down

and away from myself.


At first I called this attitude

a healthy egoism.


Today I know it is

"LOVE OF ONESELF".


当我开始真正爱自己,

我开始远离一切不健康的东西。

不论是饮食和人物,还是事情和环境,

我远离一切让我远离本真的东西。


从前我把这叫做“追求健康的自私自利”。


但今天我明白了,这是

『爱自己』。


MODESTY  谦逊

As I began to love myself,

I quit trying to always be right,

and ever since I was wrong less of the time.


Today I discovered that is

"MODESTY".


当我开始真正爱自己,

我不再总想着要永远正确,不犯错误。


我今天明白了,这叫做

『谦逊』。


PERFECTION  完美

As I began to love myself,

I refused to go on living in the past

and worry about the future.

Now, I only live for the moment,

where EVERYTHING is happening.


Today I live each day, day by day,

and I call it

"PERFECTION".


我当开始真正爱自己,

我不再继续沉溺于过去,

也不再为明天而忧虑,

现在我只活在一切正在发生的当下。


今天,我活在此时此地,

如此日复一日。这就叫

『完美』。


WIDSOM OF THE HEART 

心灵的智慧

As I began to love myself,

I recognized that my mind can disturb me

and it can make me sick.

But as I connected it to my heart,

my mind became a valuable ally.


Today I call this connection

"WISDOM OF THE HEART".


当我开始真正爱自己,

我明白,我的思虑让我变得贫乏和病态,

但当我唤起了心灵的力量,

理智就变成了一个重要的伙伴。


这种组合我称之为,

『心灵的智慧』。


LIFE  生命

We no longer need to fear arguments,

confrontations or any kind of problems

with ourselves or others.

Even stars collide,

and out of their crashing,

new worlds are born.


Today I know,

That is "LIFE"!


我们无须再害怕自己和他人的

分歧、矛盾和问题,

因为即使星星有时也会碰在一起,

形成新的世界。


今天我明白,这就是『生命』!


降落


写作背景


从在英国的大剧院作为孩童演员登台演出,到移民美国成就电影事业,再到遭受麦卡锡主义迫害而移居瑞士; 从狄更斯式的伦敦童年,到世界电影工业的顶端……年时古稀的卓别林历经沧桑,心灵如同大海一般宽广平静。


在70岁生日的当天,他写下了这首诗《当我开始爱自己》,用最质朴的语言告诉我们什么是『真实 Authenticity』,『尊重 Respect』,『成熟 Maturity』,『自信心 Self-confidence』,『诚实 Honesty』,『自爱 Love of Oneself』,『谦逊 Modesty』 ,『完美 Perfection』,『心的智慧 Wisdom of the Heart』,而这些,就是『生命 Life』本原的品质。



希望这首诗能帮助大家沉淀浮躁的心情,

全身心投入到学习中去,

经过不断地提升自己,

收获卓别林大师一样宽广平静的心灵。
