神惩奸狡God punishes cunning

神惩奸狡

南宋《名贤集》中有这样一段话:“越是奸狡越贫穷,奸狡原来天不容。富贵若从奸狡得,世间呆汉吸西风。”。尽管是聪明绝顶的人,哪怕机关算尽,到头来也会处处碰壁,穷困潦倒一生。为什么会这样?

在最近读的文章中,有一篇来自《阅微草堂笔记》的一则故事使人印象深刻。故事中说:河间府有个叫冯树柟的人,粗通文墨,还算有点本事。但是,他流落在京城十几年,一直不得志。每次遇到机缘,最后总是落空了。他去恳请人帮忙,人家口头上答应得满好,实际上却置之不理。生活上的穷困潦倒、心理上的压抑苦闷,逼得他到庙里去求梦,祈求仙人能在梦中对他的命运给予启示与引导。

那一天夜里,他梦见有个仙人对他说:“你不要怨恨世道的艰难、人情的冷漠。其实,你这一生的命运全是你自己造成的,怨恨又有什么用?你上辈子喜欢以虚伪的言词博得忠厚长者的好名声。遇有善举好事,你明知道该事不可能办成,却极力怂恿他人去做,以使人感谢你的赞成与倡导。遇有恶人犯法,你明明知道他的罪行不可饶恕,却再三为他申辩,以使人感谢你的拯救之恩。你的这些做法,虽然谈不上对别人有什么好处或坏处,但是,充好人让人感恩的都落在你身上,而把怨仇愤恨全归结到别人身上。你的机巧奸诈也太过份了!何况,你所赞成怂恿的事,或是你极力拯救的人,你都是处身在局外人的位置上,无论成功或失败,全由他人去承当利害。假如有某件事稍稍触及你一点儿利益,你就唯恐躲闪不及。就算是眼看着别人被烈火焚身、溺水将死,你只消一举手之劳,便能救人于水火,你也会因怕麻烦而撒手不管。你这种险恶的居心,还用得着神仙来指教吗?由此看来,别人对你看似亲近,实为疏远;形似关切,实为冷漠,也是理所当然了。你自己想想,你这样做应该不应该?神仙对一个人的要求是:若是他偶然有一两件事做错了,还可以用其它的善行来补偿。但如果一个人的心术坏了,那便会连阴曹地府的条律都不能容你。你这辈子算完了。只能是努力去多做好事,为下辈子造福吧!”

那冯树柟,听了仙人指出他的老底之后,虽有些收敛,但大错早已铸成,恶果早已亲手促成,最终落得个饥寒交迫贫病而死。最后只落得凄惨惨痛悔而死,悲切的下地狱去了。

读完这个故事,再反省自己的内心,虽然很难相信,但不得不承认,在我们的生活中,我们多数人都拥有着和故事主人公同样的经历或思想。而这篇故事就是在提醒我们,一生的命运全部是由自己造成的,而有的人一生做尽坏事却不自知,是形成了不好的思维方式导致的,而这种不好的思维方式则会带人进入无尽的深渊。就像故事中说的:“但如果一个人的心术坏了,那便会连阴曹地府的条律都不能容你。”所以希望所有人都能够在看到这篇文章时能够有所改变,从根本上改变自己从前形成的那种损人利己,假公济私的思维方式,用善良的心态和氛围充满世界,为自己和他人都带来一个美好的未来。


God punishes cunning

There is a passage in the "Collection of Famous Sages" of the Southern Song Dynasty: "The more cunning you are, the poorer you will be. Nature does not tolerate cunning. If wealth is obtained from cunning, the idle man in the world will be sucked by the west wind." Even if you are an extremely smart person, no matter how many tricks you use, you will eventually run into obstacles and live in poverty for the rest of your life. Why is this happening?

Among the articles I read recently, there was a story from "Yuewei Thatched Cottage Notes" that impressed me deeply. The story says: There was a man named Feng Shunan in Hejian Mansion, who was proficient in writing and had some ability. However, he has been living in the capital for more than ten years and has been unsuccessful. Every time I encounter an opportunity, it always fails in the end. He went to beg people for help, and they promised him verbally, but in fact they ignored him. The poverty in life and psychological depression forced him to go to the temple to pray for dreams, praying to immortals for enlightenment and guidance on his destiny in his dreams.

That night, he dreamed that an immortal said to him: "Don't resent the hardships of the world and the indifference of human relationships. In fact, your destiny in this life is all caused by yourself, so what's the use of resentment? In your previous life, you liked to be like this. Hypocritical words gain a good reputation as a loyal elder. When you do good deeds and good deeds, you know that it is impossible to do it, but you try your best to encourage others to do it so that people will thank you for your approval and advocacy. When evil people break the law, you clearly know that it is impossible to do it. You know that his crime is unforgivable, but you defend him again and again to make people thank you for your saving grace. Although these actions of yours cannot be said to be of any benefit or harm to others, they are nothing more than pretending to be a good person and making people grateful. On you, and all the resentment and resentment are attributed to others. Your cunning and cunning is too much! What's more, you are an outsider in the things you approve and encourage, or the people you try to save. Whether you succeed or fail, others will bear the stakes. If something touches your interests even slightly, you will be afraid of not being able to dodge. Even if you are watching others being burned by fire or drowning, you can do it with just one move. , you can save people from fire and water, but you will also give up because you are afraid of trouble. Do you still need the guidance of gods for your sinister intentions? From this point of view, others seem to be close to you, but in fact they are distant; It looks like concern but is actually indifference, which is natural. Think about it for yourself, should you do this? What the gods ask of a person is: if he accidentally does one or two things wrong, he can compensate for it with other good deeds. . But if a person’s mind is broken, then even the laws of the underworld cannot tolerate you. You are done with this life. You can only work hard to do more good deeds and bring blessings to the next life!"

Feng Shunan, after hearing the immortal point out his old background, restrained himself a little, but the big mistake had already been made, and the consequences had been brought about by his own hands, and he eventually died of hunger, cold, poverty and illness. In the end, he died in misery and regret, and sadly went to hell.

After reading this story, I reflect on my heart. Although it is hard to believe, I have to admit that in our lives, most of us have the same experiences or thoughts as the protagonist of the story. And this story reminds us that the fate of our life is all caused by ourselves, and some people do all the bad things in their life without knowing it. This is caused by the formation of bad thinking, and this bad thinking The method will lead people into the endless abyss. As the story says: "But if a person's mind is broken, even the laws of the underworld cannot tolerate you." So I hope everyone can change after reading this article. Fundamentally change the way of thinking that you have formed in the past, which is to benefit yourself at the expense of others, and to serve others for selfish reasons. Fill the world with a kind attitude and atmosphere, and bring a better future for yourself and others.
