查理.卓別林寫於70歲生日當天

當我真正開始愛自己,
我才認識到,
所有的痛苦和情感的折磨,
都只是提醒我:
活著,不要違背自己的本心,
今天我明白了。這叫做
“真實”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我才懂得,
把自己的願望強加於人,
是多麼的無禮,
就算我知道,時機並不成熟,
那人也還沒有做好準備,
就算那個人就是我自己,
今天我明白了,這叫做
“尊重”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我不再渴求不同的人生,
我知道任何發生在我身邊的事情,
都是對我成長的邀請。
如今,我稱之為
“成熟”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我才明白,我其實一直都在正確的時間,
正確的地方,發生的一切都恰如其分。
由此我得以平靜。
今天我明白了,這叫做
“自信”

當我真正開始愛自己,
我不再犧牲自己的自由時間。
不再去勾畫什麼宏偉的明天。
今天我只做有趣和快樂的事,
做自己熱愛,讓心歡喜的事,
用我的方式,以我的韻律。
今天我明白了,這叫做
“單純”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我開始遠離一切不健康的東西。
不論是飲食和人物,還是事情和環境,
我遠離一切讓我遠離本真的東西。
從前我把這叫“追求健康的自私自利”,
但今天我明白了,這是
“自愛”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我不再總想著要永遠真確,不犯錯誤。
我今天明白了,這叫做
“謙遜”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我不再繼續沉溺於過去,
也不再為明天而憂慮,
現在我只活在一切正在發生的當下,
今天,我活在此時此地,
如此日復一日。這就叫
“完美”。

當我真正開始愛自己,
我明白,我的思慮讓我變得貧乏和病態,
但當我喚起了心靈的力量,
理智就變成了一個重要的伙伴,
這種組合我稱之為,
“新的智慧”。

我們無需害怕自己和其他人的分歧,
矛盾和問題,
因為即使星星有時也會碰在一起,
形成新的世界,
今天我明白,
這就是“生命”!

 

As I Began to Love Myself: a speech made by 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 that 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!
