环境对人的影响 The Impact of the Environment on People

安士全书中有这样一则故事:从前华氏国有一头白象,能消灭怨敌,若有人犯罪,其国刑法就是用象踏死此人。后来象厩被火烧毁,即把象移到一座寺院附近。象听闻比丘念诵“法句经”,至“为善升天,为恶入渊”这一句,忽然感到恐惧,站立不动,似乎有所觉悟。后来把罪人推到象前,象只用鼻嗅舌舐,不忍心踏杀。国王知其缘故之后,就把象移到屠宰之所,象每天见闻屠杀,恶心又变得凶猛炽盛。

白象在慈悲善良的环境里,性情变得温和,不忍再踏杀生命。而在血腥的屠宰场,又变得暴虐残忍。同样,如果我们选择亲近君子,与道德高尚的人为伍,那么我们的心灵也会得到滋养和提升。相反,如果我们沉迷于低俗的环境,与小人交往,那么我们也会逐渐失去自己的原则和底线。人从好变坏很容易,但要想改恶从善却很难。古时候孟母三迁,为的就是让孟子能有一个良好的学习环境。可见环境对我们的影响极为重大,岂能不重视?我们应该时刻保持警惕,选择正确的道路,千万远离那些可能对我们产生负面影响的环境和人。


There is such a story in An Shiquan: Once upon a time, there was a white elephant in the Fahrenheit Kingdom, which could destroy enemies. If someone committed a crime, the criminal law of the country was to trample the person to death with the elephant. Later, the elephant stable was destroyed by fire, and the elephant was moved to a temple. When he heard the monk reciting the Dhammapada, he suddenly felt frightened and stood still, as if he had realized something. Later, the sinner was pushed in front of the elephant. The elephant only sniffed and licked the sinner, but could not bear to trample and kill him. After the king knew the reason, he moved the elephant to a place for slaughter. The elephant saw and heard about the slaughter every day, and his nausea became fierce and fierce.

In a compassionate and kind environment, the white elephant's temperament becomes gentler and he cannot bear to take any more lives. And in the bloody slaughterhouse, it became violent and cruel. Similarly, if we choose to be close to gentlemen and associate with people with high moral standards, our souls will also be nourished and promoted. On the contrary, if we indulge in a vulgar environment and associate with villains, we will gradually lose our principles and bottom line. It is easy for people to change from good to bad, but it is difficult to change from evil to good. In ancient times, Meng's mother moved three times in order to provide Mencius with a good learning environment. It can be seen that the environment has an extremely important impact on us. How can we not pay attention to it? We should always be vigilant, choose the right path, and stay away from environments and people that may have a negative impact on us.
