兩週一聚 (三十四期) 「問蒼天」 / 2weeks1gather (#34)「Que Sera Sera?」


"God seems to have left the receiver off the hook, and time is running out !!" Arthur Koestler 1905-83

傳統中國文化,視蒼天如神靈,芸芸众生求簽問卦,無不祈望上天保佑,添丁發財,盤滿砵滿,要風得風,要雨得雨。無奈天有不測風雲,人有旦夕禍福,每当事与願違之時,善男信女亦不免感到造物弄人,信心動摇,怨天怨地。

微豆当年十八廿二,曾自誇要修身丶齊家丶治國丶平天下,青年血氣方剛,滿腔雄才偉略,敢作敢為,不問父老,不求蒼天,玩弄命運於指掌之間。唯獨歲月不留人,在談笑風生之際,不覺時光溜走,往事隨風飛逝,午夜夢迴,猛然驁醒,舉首問天:

1.天生我才,未必有用?天生無才,所為何事?
2.大病不死,絕處逢生,皆感謝天靈保祐,見証神跡。但亦有聞雷劈神廟,火燒教堂,麥加朝聖教徒自相殘踏死傷,不禁疑問何神跡之有?
3.駭閱歷史新聞報導,戰爭罪犯屠殺異族,教堂牧師姦狎男童,微豆於社会染缸浸淫日久,对幼讀之【三字經】亦有疑問,人之初,性本善?人之初,性本惡?

日月如梭,今日豆芽在加國落地生根,開枝散葉,前瞻後顧唏噓之餘,敢問蒼天上列三項難題。

新鮮人: All three are good responses, thanks !!!

>> 1 無用而用
True enough - no wastes :)

>> 2 因果
But the previous incarnations are not here to defend themselves ...

>> 3 人無善惡,心有好壞
The separations of body, mind and spirit?

Exile:

>> 1. Most of us are below average...
I thought "average" means "most of us". Yes/No?

>> 2. Religion sucks...
I prefer spirituality over religion.

>> 3. The world is a lot darker than we would like to admit…
But I would like to keep my faith in the human race :(

"人無善惡,心有好壞",
人天生無分善惡,
只是後來人心受世間物慾影響,
利慾薰心所致!

Space:

Oui, c’est en français !!

I re-visited your Que Sera Sera site and re-read our exchanges back in Aug 2009 and had a good laugh again !!
