Like the water that flows from the highlands to the sea, one must go with the flow of life. Sometimes we go fast, flowing around the obstructions in our path; sometimes we fall off the edge, we tumble, we swirl, we sing, and we roar. And, sometimes we submerge everything in our path.
Water has fury and yet it is calm. It destroys and yet it gives life. This is how we live our lives. In the end, we are one with the mighty oceans and rise above the earth as clouds. Once the cycle is completed, we are born again as drops of rain and flakes of snow. This is the beauty of life.

 

生命之美

如水從高原流向大海,我們必須順其自然。我們有時走得快,繞過路徑中的障礙而行,有時從邊緣墮下,我們跌倒,我們捲入漩渦,我們唱歌,我們咆哮。甚至乎,有時淹沒阻撓我們前進的一切。
水會動怒,然而它也有平靜一面。它會破壞,又同時賦予生命。這就是我們的生命。最後,回歸到浩瀚的海洋,從地平線蒸發上天成為雲。當這循環完成,我們又重生作雨滴和雪花。這就是生命之美。
