一个人究竟怎样进步?

After all, I’m all alone and will always be

这个世界上,优秀的人很少,高尚的人很少,富有爱心的人很少,善良的人很少。

世界是险恶的,凶杀、暴力、偷窃、猥亵、恐怖主义遍地都是。

That’s the very reason that I never really ever trust anybody — deep down in my heart

See? People in this world are pathetic, ignorant, shortsighted, and worshipping materialism.

正应了Erin Janus的那句话:

The shit I’ve been through blocks my health, happiness and creativity via manifesting as depression and anxiety. It causes me to isolate myself. And never feel good enough to pursue my goals.

It’s not me who are not doing things well, It’s the people around me who are all too bad for me.

美,转瞬即逝。德,仅仅存在于文学作品之中。

又如Westworld中的Dolores所言:

Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world, the disarray. I choose to see the beauty. To believe there is an order to our days. A purpose.

而后,看清Westworld丑恶的现实后的Dolores改口:

And where would we run to? The world out there, beyond? Some people see the ugliness in this world. I choose to see the beauty. The beauties of the world. We’re trapped, Teddy. Lived our whole lives in this. Not realizing there’s an order to it, a purpose. And the purpose is to keep us here. The beautiful trap is inside of us. Because it was…

这个世界又何尝不是西部世界的映射?

人之初,性本善?性本恶!

原始的人类,食不果腹,衣不覆体,哪里来的美德?哪里来的修养?

有的,不过是残忍的厮杀和原始的欲望罢了

所以说现代文明为什么比远古的文明更高级?在于对高尚的追求,对于美德的向往。

放下屠刀,很难。。。 消灭一件东西比创造一件东西简单的多

熵增,是世界自然的规律,破坏永远比创造简单

同样的,做一个坏人远比做一个好人简单。

当然这个世界,这个社会不能简单的分为 “好” “坏” 两派

但是很显然的

抢银行获得财富的速度,要比自己赚钱来的快

卖身赚钱的速度,要比自己努力工作来的快

抛弃自己的朋友、爱人,比建立新的友谊、爱情,要容易的多

你看,走下坡路多容易,走上坡路多困难!

所以,很多人,都会自然地,去选择那条“简单”的路

Robert Frost的诗The Road Not Taken中写道

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

I took the one less traveled by. The harder one

一路走来,同路人,越来越少 越来越少

但是这不代表着我选的路就是错误的,根据上述的例子,很显然,这很有可能是更加正确的一条路

圣人、贤者 如老庄、孔孟,在这个世界上,少之又少,以至于多个世纪以来的历史上,这样的人也没有几个。

正因为如此,我们应当珍惜身边那些类似“圣人”的人,他们一点都不蠢,你当然可以乘机占他们的便宜,但是这样下去,这世界上的“圣人”,就会又少那么一个。

当然也许其实并不会少,因为他们也许很清楚搞破坏的人的动机

所以回到正题,一个人究竟怎样进步?

物质主义者也许会告诉你,拥有了A、B,执行了C、D你就算是进步了

但是很显然,那并不是。

其实也不是太难,主旨就是寻找人类当中优秀的部分,并且与之靠近,并向之学习

人类当中美好的部分虽然稀有,但是的确存在,分布世界各地

追寻这美好的部分,其实就是进步的过程。

在追寻的过程中,相处的过程,不知不觉的,你也就变成了这美好之一

谨以此文献给我逝去的2016和即将到来的2017
