Well, this cumbered pilgrims mind and he feared death no longer. The wise man turned to the second pilgrim and said, ;What is it you fear, my friend?;这除去了这位受苦的朝圣者心中的恐惧,他不再害怕死亡。此时,智者转向第二个朝圣者,并说道:“你有什么恐惧,我的朋友?”;I fear my new neighbors,; said the second pilgrim, ;They are strangers who observe holy days different than mine! They have raised too many kids. And they play music that sounds like noise.;“我害怕我的新邻居,他们过着与我们不同的风俗节日,他们有太多的孩子,他们播放的音乐听起来就像噪音。”;Ah, strangers,; said the wise man. ;I will take away this fear, my friends. Return to your home, and make a cake for your new neighbors. Bring toys to their children. Join them in their songs and learn their ways. And you will become familiar with these neighbors and your fear will go away.;“啊,陌生人……我帮你驱除这种恐惧,我的朋友。返回到你的家,并为您的新邻居做个蛋糕,送给他们的子女心爱的玩具,接受他们的歌曲,并学习他们的生活方式。这样你就能跟邻居打成一片,你的恐惧也会自行消失。”The second man saw the wisdom in the simple instructions and knew he would no longer fear the family who were his neighbors. There in the cave so high in the mountains that nothing could live, the wise man turned to the last pilgrim and asked of his fear.第二名朝圣者在简单的谈话中得到了启发,而且觉得自己再也不会害怕邻居了。这个洞穴位于高耸入云的深山中,没有任何生物能在此生存。智者转向最后一名朝圣者,并问询他的恐惧。;Oh, wise man. I fear...spiders. When I try to sleep at night I imagine spiders dropping from the ceiling and crawling upon my flesh and I can not rest.;最后的人说道:“哦,智者,我害怕……蜘蛛。当我试着晚上睡觉的时候,我担心蜘蛛从天花板上掉下来,在我的身上爬,这让我无法休息。”;Ah, spiders,; said the wise man, ;No, shit, why do you think I live way up here?;智者说道:“蜘蛛,该死的蜘蛛!难道你没有看出我不得不生活在这鬼地方的原因吗?”201406/307675。

  • At this time of year, few sights evoke more feelings of cheer and goodwill than the twinkling lights of a Christmas tree. The popularity of a tree at Christmas is due in part to my great-great grandparents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. After this touching picture was published, many families wanted a Christmas tree of their own, and the custom soon sp. In 1949, I spent Christmas in Malta as a newly-married naval wife. We have returned to that island over the years, including last month for a meeting of Commonwealth leaders; and this year I met another group of leaders: The Queens Young Leaders, an inspirational group, each of them a symbol of hope in their own Commonwealth communities. Gathering round the tree gives us a chance to think about the year ahead – I am looking forward to a busy 2016, though I have been warned I may have Happy Birthday sung to me more than once or twice. It also allows us to reflect on the year that has passed, as we think of those who are far away or no longer with us. Many people say the first Christmas after losing a loved one is particularly hard. But its also a time to remember all that we have to be thankful for. It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often at Christmas carol services: ;The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.; One cause for thankfulness this summer was marking seventy years since the end of the Second World War. On VJ Day, we honoured the remaining veterans of that terrible conflict in the Far East, as well as remembering the thousands who never returned. The procession from Horse Guards Parade to Westminster Abbey must have been one of the slowest ever, because so many people wanted to say ‘thank you to them. At the end of that War, the people of Oslo began sending an annual gift of a Christmas tree for Trafalgar Square. It has five hundred lightbulbs and is enjoyed not just by Christians but by people of all faiths, and of none. At the very top sits a bright star, to represent the Star of Bethlehem. The custom of topping a tree also goes back to Prince Alberts time. For his familys tree, he chose an angel, helping to remind us that the focus of the Christmas story is on one particular family. For Joseph and Mary, the circumstances of Jesuss birth – in a stable – were far from ideal, but worse was to come as the family was forced to flee the country. It is no surprise that such a human story still captures our imagination and continues to inspire all of us who are Christians, the world over. Despite being displaced and persecuted throughout his short life, Christs unchanging message was not one of revenge or violence but simply that we should love one another. Although it is not an easy message to follow, we shouldnt be discouraged; rather, it inspires us to try harder: to be thankful for the people who bring love and happiness into our own lives, and to look for ways of sping that love to others, whenever and wherever we can. One of the joys of living a long life is watching ones children, then grandchildren, then great grandchildren, help decorate the Christmas tree. And this year my family has a new member to join in the fun! The customary decorations have changed little in the years since that picture of Victoria and Alberts tree first appeared, although of course electric lights have replaced the candles. Theres an old saying that ;it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness;. There are millions of people lighting candles of hope in our world today. Christmas is a good time to be thankful for them, and for all that brings light to our lives. I wish you a very happy Christmas.201512/418938。
