集古論思

最近讀了一篇文章,講述了明成祖朱隷的事跡。多數人都聽説過明成祖始建紫禁城,也聽聞過他下令編著著名的永樂大典,同時也是成祖在位時,明永樂年間,大建武當山,歷時12年,建成9宮、8觀、72岩廟等33座建築群,使我的家鄉一度成爲道教聖地,也被當時人稱之爲天下第一仙山。但是我們很少瞭解過真正的明成祖是一個什麽樣的人,而他又爲什麽能夠做出如此傑出的豐功偉績,同時又被世人稱爲:啓天弘道高明肇運聖武神功純仁至孝文皇帝呢?

原來明成祖非常注重自己德行的修養,對自己要求也很嚴格,他尤其以節儉著稱。 《明史·成祖本紀》中的評價中就說他“即位以後,躬行節儉”。成祖曾說:“天立君以養民,君不恤民,是不敬天。”他還經常對臣下說,內庫所存的財物是用來賞賜功臣的,自己不敢妄費。

有一件具體的事情令我印象深刻:一天,成祖偶然發現紫禁城的太監用大把的白米餵雞,他非常生氣。他對宮中的主管提到了這件事,說:“如今四方蝗災旱災之後,百姓生活仍十分艱難,朕日夜為之憂心,而宦官們卻坐享膏梁,不知生民的艱難,毫無顧忌地暴殄天物,他們一日花在飼養牲畜的費用,可以夠饑民一家食用。朕已經下令禁止了。你們要知道,如果今後再有如此做的,你們一定要嚴懲不貸。”

從上面的故事就可以看出,明成祖是在設身處地的為百姓考慮,説實話,在現代這個充滿利益,充滿勾心鬥角物慾橫流的世界,很難想像一個豐衣足食且享受著世界上最榮華生活的人能夠真心的考慮平民的感受。也許這對於明成祖來説是一件很正常的事情,因爲他從小就是在這樣的熏陶下長大的。但他的事跡卻又非常值得我們深思。

聽了明成祖的幾個真實事例,再反觀自己的內心,發現真的有很多地方做的不夠好,尤其是在設身處地的為別人著想這一方面。平時在反思時,總會想著肯定是出於顯示和妒嫉的出發點,當然這是最容易犯的兩個錯誤,但往往形成了刻板思維之後,覺得自己忽略了一個很重要的錯誤:只想著自己。很多時候由於出發點是站在自己的角度,所以往往不會考慮別人的感受去做事情。有時會顯得有些特立獨行,其實都是在滿足一個前提:我認爲這樣做事對的,同時這樣做我能夠舒服,或者對自己利益最大化。這也是我以後在做事情的時候需要注意的。

當然,在叔叔這裏,我們學到了很多他人無法企及的思維方式,道德品質,和外面的同齡人相比,我們在叔叔這裏能夠意識到我們自己有哪些錯誤,叔叔讓我們處在一個良好的狀態,這是很多很多人都無法做到的。但是我們永遠要和自己比較,永遠都有需要改掉的毛病,提升的空間。但無疑的是,我們正走在一條能夠帶領我們逐漸走向光明的道路上。


觀景有感

這週內的某一天,下午,傍晚時分,走出門準備去吃飯,忽然被眼前的美景吸引。雖然描寫加拿大、秋、黃昏、景色的文章已不在少數,但由於沒有及時拿相機記錄下那令人深刻的場面,那麽就希望能夠通過文字的方式,使看到的美景一直留在身邊,也希望能夠把當時的美好分享給在讀的所有人。

傍晚,太陽已然下落,但黃昏的橙黃色還依舊佔滿了半片天,白天逐漸開始進入黑夜,在這白與黑的交界閒,盞盞路燈被點亮。而這時天空中最燿眼的物體,是許久會見的初月,不知是否因爲前幾天接連大霧,過後的月亮顯得格外明亮,甚至有些耀眼。同時,天的那邊,飛來排為人字的雁群,在黃昏,路燈,明月的襯托下成爲黑色剪影。明月是淺黃色的,路燈是橙黃的,黃昏是紅橙的,三者在眼前正好形成毫無違和感的漸變色。

近處的路燈,高處的新月,遠處的黃昏,以及即將遠去的雁群,也從自然的構圖,顔色中成爲了一副美到不可方物的畫面。置身於此,不禁感嘆:月明燈下顧雁飛,人自身處黑白閒。我們自己還是要時刻保持好的狀態,並把美好帶給更多的人。


Gather the ancient theory and think our self

I recently read an article about the deeds of Ming Chengzu, Zhu Li. Most people have heard that Chengzu of the Ming Dynasty built the Forbidden City, and also heard that he ordered the compilation of the famous Yongle Ceremony. At the same time, when Chengzu was on the throne, during the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, Wudang Mountain was built. It took 12 years to build 9 palaces, 8 views, 72 Rock Temple and other 33 buildings made my hometown a Taoist holy place for a time, and it was also called the first fairy mountain in the world by the people at that time. But we seldom know what kind of person the real Ming Chengzu was, and why he was able to make such outstanding achievements, and at the same time he was called by the world: Qitian, Hongdao, Gaoming, Zhaoyun, Shengwu, Shenwu, pure benevolence and filial piety. ?

It turns out that Ming Chengzu paid great attention to the cultivation of his own virtues and was very strict with himself. He was especially known for his frugality. The evaluation in "Ming History: The Chronicles of Chengzu" said that he "practiced frugality after he ascended the throne". Chengzu once said: "Heaven establishes a ruler to support the people, and a ruler who does not care for the people is disrespectful to heaven."

One specific thing struck me: One day, Chengzu happened to find that the eunuch in the Forbidden City was feeding chickens with a lot of white rice, and he was very angry. He mentioned this to the head of the palace and said: "Now after the locust plague and drought in the four directions, the people's life is still very difficult, and I worry about it day and night, while the eunuchs are sitting on the anointed beam, ignorant of the hardships of the people, and have no scruples. The waste of the earth and the heavens, they spend a day on raising livestock, enough for the hungry family to eat. I have issued an order to prohibit it. You must know that if you do this again in the future, you must be severely punished. "

It can be seen from the above story that Ming Chengzu put himself in the shoes of the common people. To be honest, in the modern world full of interests and intrigue and materialistic desires, it is difficult to imagine a person who is well-fed and enjoys the most prosperous life in the world. Be able to truly consider the feelings of the common people. Maybe this is a very normal thing for Ming Chengzu, because he grew up under such influence since he was a child. But his deeds are very worthy of our consideration.

After listening to a few real examples of Ming Chengzu, and looking back at my own heart, I found that there are really many things that I did not do well, especially in the aspect of putting myself in the shoes of others. When I usually reflect, I always think that it must be the starting point of showing and jealousy. Of course, these are the two easiest mistakes to make, but after forming a stereotyped thinking, I feel that I have overlooked a very important mistake: only Think about yourself. Many times, because the starting point is from your own perspective, you often do things without considering the feelings of others. Sometimes it seems a little maverick, but it is actually satisfying a premise: I think it is right to do this, and at the same time I can be comfortable or maximize my own interests. This is what I need to pay attention to when doing things in the future.

Of course, with my uncle, we have learned a lot of ways of thinking and moral qualities that others can't match. Compared with our peers outside, we can realize our own mistakes here. Uncle keeps us in a good state. , which many, many people cannot do. But we always have to compare ourselves with ourselves, and there are always shortcomings that need to be corrected and room for improvement. But there is no doubt that we are on a path that will lead us gradually to the light.


Feel the sight

One day this week, in the afternoon or evening, when I went out to eat, I was suddenly attracted by the beautiful scenery in front of me. Although there are many articles describing Canada, autumn, dusk and scenery, but because I didn't take the camera to record the impressive scene in time, I hope that through the way of words, I can keep the beautiful scenery by my side. I hope to be able to share the beauty of that time with everyone who is reading.

In the evening, the sun had already set, but the orange at dusk still filled half of the sky, and the day gradually began to turn into night. At the junction of white and black, street lamps were lit. At this time, the most dazzling object in the sky was the first moon that we had met for a long time. I don't know if it was because of the continuous fog in the past few days, the moon after that was extra bright, even a little dazzling. At the same time, on the other side of the sky, the flocks of geese flying in a herringbone form become black silhouettes against the backdrop of dusk, street lamps and the bright moon. The bright moon is light yellow, the street lights are orange, and the dusk is red and orange. The three just form a gradient color without any sense of discord.

Nearby street lamps, high crescent moon, distant twilight, and the flock of geese that are about to leave, also from the natural composition and color, it becomes a picture that is too beautiful to be seen. Being here, I can't help but sigh: Gu Yanfei is flying under the moonlight, and people are in black and white idleness. We still have to maintain a good state all the time and bring beauty to more people.
