當我開始愛自己 As I began to love myself

 當我們開始愛自己 -卓別林70歲生日寫給自己的詩


華山的世界領袖系列分享,我想起早前學習Charlie Chaplin的文章:

今天《當我們開始愛自己》這首詩, 提醒我:


As I Began to Love Myself:
Charlie Chaplin on his 70th Birthday
笑匠差利卓別靈,23 歲開始拍電影,常以小人物做主角,關懷弱勢社群。他說:「無論多困難,也不會低頭,因為低頭就看不見彩虹。」
差利出生貧寒卻為世人帶來無限歡笑,他 70 歲生日時,發表了一篇經典文章,講述怎樣才是愛自己。


Today as we began to love ourselves

As I Began to Love Myself: Charlie Chaplin on his 70th Birthday

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it RESPECT.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it MATURITY.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment, so I could be calm. Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.

As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it SIMPLICITY.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is MODESTY.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know THAT IS LIFE!
