陰德

陰德

周内讀了一篇文章,爲我們講述了陰德對人生的影響,如果一個人沒有足夠的陰德,那麽人生就會十分坎坷。相反,如果陰德很大,那麽這一生就會順風順水,百福駢臻、千祥雲集。而陰德是我們通過做不爲人知的善事才會得到的,所謂陰德天報之,陽善享世名。當然一提到陰德陽善,就不得不說到造業與積德,現在的社會,如果按照古代聖賢所制定的行爲准則來看,真是舉手投足閒,無時無刻不在造業、失德,從刻意的傷害生靈,到打架駡人説髒話,再到無人不知的黃賭毒等,以及一些很多其他方面的東西,都在浪費我們的福德,欠下不必要的業力。相比之下,能做到陽善的人已是十分稀少,而積陰德的人更是寥寥無幾。

I read an article this week, telling us about the influence of yin virtue on life. If a person does not have enough yin virtue, then life will be very rough. On the contrary, if the yin and virtue are great, then this life will be smooth sailing, with a thousand blessings and a thousand auspicious gatherings. And yin virtue is obtained by doing unknown good deeds. The so-called yin virtue is rewarded by the sky, and the yang virtue is famous in the world. Of course, when it comes to yin and yang, we have to talk about karma and virtue accumulation. In today's society, if we look at the code of conduct formulated by ancient sages, we really do nothing but create karma and lose virtue all the time, from deliberate harm. Living beings, from fighting, cursing and swearing, to pornography, gambling, drugs, etc. that no one knows about, and many other things, all are wasting our merit and owe unnecessary karma. In contrast, there are very few people who can achieve yang kindness, and even fewer people who accumulate yin virtue.

入秋、動物

這周,入十月。天氣逐漸轉涼,樹葉逐漸變色,楓葉之國最壯麗的景色即將出現在大家的視野。人們開始穿厚衣服,蓋厚被子。可每當走在人行街道上,看著那些爲了禦寒而穿上厚衣服的人們時,不知爲何,總是為想起那些并不受人重視的群體:小動物。

也許這個話題已經被提過多次,也許很多人不在意這個話題,但是我仍舊希望人們能夠放下以往的偏見,從而對野生動物擁有一絲憐憫,一些關懷。因爲它們沒有固定的食物來源,生活的環境更是被人類的樓房、公園代替。先不提人們對動物造成的傷害與威脅,也不提人們應該對此感到不忍與愧疚,因爲現在能夠想起以上幾點的人,已經很少,很少了。但不容忽視的是,動物依舊生活在我們的周圍,而我們的行爲,也許對這些小生命而言是決定性的。

近兩周,越來越多的動物出現在了視野中,見到了著名的加拿大鳥:Blue Jay。棕皮膚的小松鼠,體型龐大的獾,以及我覺得最爲可愛的兩種動物:臭鼬和浣熊。而對於這兩種動物,自己也是感想頗多,像記錄下來和大家分享。

浣熊:浣熊不是一個陌生的話題,在我們的網站照片欄目可以看到浣熊的視頻,以及很多人都拜讀過的叔叔的文章《浣熊之痛》。但上周的一個晚上,是我第一次近距離的觀察浣熊。當時我正在收拾厨房,突然玻璃門傳來一陣聲響,然後就見一隻浣熊出現在門外。而這隻浣熊沒有因爲看到了我而逃走,而是投來了一種複雜的眼神,不知我的感覺是否正確,但我認爲浣熊的眼神中充斥著可憐,飢餓,以及一絲害怕。看著這樣的浣熊,真心替這些小動物難過,尤其是北美有視浣熊為討厭的動物這一偏見,使得它們即使生活在“民主社會”,也不能夠實現真正豐衣足食的生活。

臭鼬:這幾個月見的最多的中型動物當屬臭鼬,黑白色的毛皮非常漂亮,也非常好辨認。有時我們會在後院發現來找吃的的臭鼬,很可愛,但也可以看到和浣熊一樣的對人的恐懼心態。而這并不是最主要的,我想説的是,在過去的一個月中,我們見過四次臭鼬,兩次在後院,而另外兩次,則是在公路上,兩隻被汽車壓死的臭鼬。臭鼬體内有很難聞的氣體,而在被汽車壓過之後這種氣味會散發出來,非常刺鼻,所有路過馬路的人都會嗤之以鼻。但誰又能想到這些臭鼬被人殘酷碾軋的殘酷處境呢?當然汽車壓死動物的事情并不只發生在臭鼬的身上,只是想以這個具體的例子來告訴大家,動物被人們“無意識”傷害的幾率已經越來越高,就我們生活的這片區域,平均一周就會見到一例,這件事情人們難道不應該重視起來嗎?

説了這麽多,其實就是希望能夠有更多的人可以出於善心來對待這些可憐的小生命。世界上有很多需要被幫助的動物,也許我們救不了所有,但是每當幫助過一個小生命,就會想到那個場景:一個外國小男孩在即將乾涸的水窪中撿起一條條小魚扔進大海,別人問他爲什麽要這麽做,明明救不了所有的魚。小男孩的回答是:“即使救不了所有,但這一個,我能救!”

This week, into October. The weather is gradually getting cooler, the leaves are gradually changing color, and the most magnificent scenery of the maple country is about to appear in everyone's field of vision. People began to wear thick clothes and thick quilts. But whenever I walk on the pedestrian street and look at the people who put on thick clothes to keep out the cold, I don’t know why, I always think of those groups that are not valued by people: small animals.

Maybe this topic has been raised many times, and maybe many people don't care about this topic, but I still hope that people can let go of their past prejudices and have some compassion and care for wild animals. Because they have no fixed source of food, their living environment is replaced by human buildings and parks. Not to mention the harm and threat that people have caused to animals, and not to mention that people should feel unbearable and guilty about it, because now there are very few people who can think of the above points. But what cannot be ignored is that animals still live around us, and our behavior may be decisive for these little creatures.

In the past two weeks, more and more animals have appeared in the field of vision, and I have seen the famous Canadian bird: blue J. Small brown squirrels, huge badgers, and two of the cutest animals I find: skunks and raccoons. As for these two animals, I also have a lot of feelings, like recording them and sharing them with everyone.

Raccoon: Raccoon is not an unfamiliar topic. In the photo section of our website, you can see the video of the raccoon, as well as the article "The Pain of the Raccoon" that many people have read. But one night last week was my first close-up look at a raccoon. I was cleaning up the kitchen when there was a sound from the glass door and a raccoon appeared outside the door. And the raccoon didn't run away because it saw me, but cast a complicated look. I don't know if I felt right, but I think the raccoon's eyes were full of pity, hunger, and a hint of fear. Looking at such raccoons, I really feel sorry for these small animals, especially because North America has the prejudice that raccoons are hated animals, so that even if they live in a "democratic society", they cannot achieve a truly well-fed life.

Skunk: The most common medium-sized animal seen these months is the skunk, which is recognizable by its black and white fur. Sometimes we find skunks in the backyard looking for food, which are cute, but can also see the same fear of people as raccoons. And that's not the main thing, I'd say we've seen skunks four times in the past month, two times in the backyard and two times on the road, two by cars Crushed skunk. Skunks have unpleasant gas in their bodies, and after being run over by a car, the smell is so pungent that everyone passing by will scoff at it. But who would have thought about the trouble with these skunks? Of course, the fact that the car crushes the animal does not only happen to the skunk. I just want to use this specific example to tell everyone that the probability of animals being "unconsciously" injured by people has become higher and higher. In this area where we live , we will see one case every week on average. Shouldn’t people take this matter seriously?

Having said so much, I actually hope that more people can treat these poor little lives out of kindness. There are many animals in the world that need help. Maybe we can't save them all, but every time we help a little life , will think of a scene, a little boy picks up a small fish in a puddle that is about to dry up and throws it into the sea. When someone asks him why he did it, he obviously can't save all the fish. The little boy's answer was: "Even if I can't save all of them, I can save this one!"
