走上帝之道者的人生顺利美好

有一种人生,衣食无忧,关爱丰富,身体无恙,一帆风顺。
There is a kind of life, which is free of care and worry for food and clothing, rich in care and love, healthy in body, and successful in all things.  

有一种人生,烦恼不断,痛苦连连,缺乏关爱,坎坷不顺。

There is a kind of life, which is beset with troubles and worries, plagued with miseries and pains, devoid of care and love, and fraught with twists and turns.  

有一种人生,忽明忽暗,随起随落,喜忧参半,多遇逆顺。
 
There is yet another kind of life, which alternates between brightness and darkness, rise and fall, happiness and worries, and adversity and favorable circumstances.  

为什么?难道是天定的命运?是时代的问题?是社会的问题?是亲朋好友的问题?是大自然的问题?还是另有别因?

Why? Is life a matter of predestination? What has caused the differences, the times, the society, friends and relatives, the nature, or any other factor? 

  我的认识是,人生的好坏取决于我们走什么样的人生道路。同样是获取生活资源,有人完全依靠自己的勤劳而获取,有人通过不劳而获以寄生虫的方式获取,有人通过敲诈剥削获取,有人通过贪污偷盗等方式获取,有人通过欺世盗名方式获取,获取的方式不同,所经历的人生过程不同,所感受体验到的境界不同,所得到的结局也不同,人生当然就不同。

My understanding is that whether one has a good life or not is determined by the course of life he takes. To get the resources for life, some people depend on their own hard work, some people on other people’s hard work like parasites, some people resort to blackmail and exploitation, some people engage in corruption and theft, and some people sail under false colors. The different way one makes use of to get resources leads to a different course of life, a different real of experience, a different outcome, and of course a different life.    

人生之路千万条,哪条路是最佳的人生之路?

Of the infinitely diverging roads of life, which is the best?  

我的观点是,最佳的人生之路就是走上帝之道。要使人生顺利美好,就走上帝的道。或者说,走上帝之道是人生顺利美好的最可靠保证,其他任何道都比不上上帝之道给人带来的幸福多。
 
My belief is that the best road of life is the way of the Greatest Creator. To have a successful and wonderful life, one has to follow the way of the Greatest Creator. In another word, following the way of the Greatest Creator is the most reliable guarantee for a smooth and wonderful life. No other road can bring so much happiness and blessing to man as the way of the Greatest Creator.  

事实真是如此吗?我们可以去观察、去体验、去实践、去验证。
    Is this really the case? We can observe, experience, practice and validate by ourselves.    

我的结论是,一个人,如果他的一生是顺利美好一帆风顺的,可以肯定地说,他一直是走在上帝的道上的;如果他的人生是喜忧参半大起大落的,那么证明他一会儿是走在上帝的道上,一会儿是走在其他道上的;如果一个人一生烦恼不断坎坷不顺,可以肯定,他一直是背离上帝之道的,他从未走在上帝的道上。

My conclusion is : If a person has enjoyed a successful and wonderful life, then most certainly he has been following the way of the Greatest Creator all his life; if a person’s life is mixed with happiness and grief and characterized by dramatic fluctuations, then he has been following the way of the Greatest Creator but has sometimes strayed away from it; if a person’s life is fraught with troubles, and twists and turns, then it can be said most surely that he has never followed but has deviated the way of the Greatest Creator.  

有什么理论来证明我的上述结论吗?

Is there any theory to substantiate the above conclusion of mine?   

我用上帝之道的几个内涵来试图证明之,大家看看有没有道理。

I am trying to prove the conclusion with the several connotations of the Way of the Greatest Creator, just see for yourself whether there is sense behind my reasoning.  

上帝之道的一个重要内涵是:顺应自然,绝无强迫。

One important connotation of the Way of the Greatest Creator is the compliance with nature without any forced actions.

一个人的一生,如果他随遇而安、随缘而化、随性而动,随机而作,不强行,既不强迫自己,也不强迫他人,来的,就让它来,去的,就让它去,既不过分追求,也不放弃努力,遇上桃子吃桃子,遇上杏子吃杏子,不好高骛远,不自惭形秽,不骄奢淫逸,不懒惰成性,那么,他的人生基本上将是一帆风顺的,不会有大起大落,不会有失意伤心。

He will have a successful and wonderful life if in his life a person takes things as they are, associates with others by following the predestined relations, act in accordance with his nature, and takes advantage of the opportunities as they arise, never forcing anything upon anybody, and never imposing on himself or others. Accept whatever comes your way, and let go of those that have set their minds on leaving. You do not overdo your pursuit, and yet do not give up your endeavour. Have peaches when peaches come your way and have apricots if apricots come your way. Do not reach for what is beyond your grasp, do not have a sense of inferiority, do not indulge in extravagance and dissipation. Do not lead a lazy life. In this way, you can have a wonderful and smooth life free of great fluctuations and frustrations.    

上帝之道的另一个内涵是:无为、无争、无我。

The second content of the Way of the Greatest Creator is: nonaction, no contention, and no ego.

一个人,能住五星级宾馆不傲慢,住茅草房也心安理得不自毁,吃山珍海味心存感激,吃粗茶淡饭不厌烦,凡事与人不争、不抢,该来的,不拒绝;该去的,不留恋,不刻意去谋求谋划谋取,喜人所不喜,乐人所不乐,不贪婪,千江万河只取一瓢饮,不过分去占有拥有,不过分去贪求功名利禄荣华富贵,安贫乐道,常常把他人和众人的利益放在首位而把自己的利益放在次要地位,如此,就不会有坎坷困逆。


One should not be arrogant even if he can afford the five-star hotel and should not feel inferior if he has only a thatched hut to live in. One should feel grateful for the delicacies he has but should also be content with simple meals. One should never contend with anybody for anything, and does not reject what is duly his. One should let go of anything that is not duly his. One should not deliberately plan and scheme to obtain anything. One should be satisfied and content with what others are not content and satisfied with. One should never be insatiably greedy. Just take a small ladle of water from a huge river, do not act like a hog, do not angle for fame and wealth and rank. Be contented to a poor life and devote to spiritual fulfillment. Always consider others’ interests before one’s own. In this way one will not suffer setbacks and adversities.    

上帝之道的第三个内涵是:爱。

The third content of the Way of the Greatest Creator is love.  

一个人,只奉献不索取,只想着给他人带来开心、快乐、自由、幸福,而不给人设置藩篱和桎梏,不压制和管制他人,不夺人所好,不限制他人自由,不欺负欺压欺骗他人,不与人计较,不虐待和屠杀生命,珍惜一切生命,尊重一切生命,不挡别人的道,愿舍弃自己而成就他人,如此,就不会结怨,就不会遭恨,人生当然会顺利畅达。


A person will not incur grudge and resentment and will certainly enjoy a smooth and wonderful life if he contributes instead of demanding things from others, if he sets his mind on other people’s joy, happiness, freedom and blessing instead of creating trouble and shackles for others, suppressing and controlling others, seizing what others are interested in, restricting other’s freedom, bullying and cheating others, comparing and haggling with others, and maltreating and killing life, and if he treasures all living beings, respects all living beings, does not stand in other people’s way, and is willing to sacrifice himself for the sake of others.    

上帝之道的第四个内涵是:信。

The fourth content of the Way of the Greatest Creator is faith.

基督耶稣是上帝之子,是上帝的使者,他给我们传达的是上帝的信息和意愿,耶稣教导我们,只求上帝的王国走上帝的道,我们所需要的一切上帝会加给我们,我们没必要为明天忧虑,没必要为将来忧虑,没必要为自己的吃穿住行生老病死忧虑,这一切上帝早给我们安排好了。只要有此信,人生之路是坦途,人生一定会顺利、平安、通达。


  Jesus Christ is the son and messenger of the Greatest Creator, who conveys to us the information and will from the Greatest Creator. Jesus teaches us that we need only pursue the access to the kingdom of the Greatest Creator and follow the Way of the Greatest Creator, and that we need not worry about tomorrow and the future and need not worry about all aspects of our life because the Greatest Creator will provide us everything that we need and has made all arrangement for us. As long as we embrace this faith, we will have a smooth, safe, and successful life.  

上帝之道有八大内涵,仅仅以上四大内涵:信、爱、无我、无争、无为、顺应自然、绝不强迫,就足以保证我们的人生是顺利美好的。如果我们的人生中缺乏信、爱,我们去有为,去争,自私,凡事不顺应自然而要强行,那么,人生必然是烦恼痛苦、忧虑恐慌,坎坷不顺的。

The Way of the Greatest Creator has eight major connotations, of which the above four contents are enough to secure us a successful and wonderful life. We should stick to faith, love, no ego, no contention, nonaction, compliance to nature, and no employment of force. Our life will teem with troubles, miseries, worries, fears, and frustrations and twists and turns if we lack faith and love, if we engage in action and contention, if we are selfish and do not follow the law of nature but force our will on nature.
