53 The Wholeness of Life 完整的人生

once upon a time, the circle missed a wedge. The circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. It chatted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces, but none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching.Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy. Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. It incorporated the missing piece into itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice flowers or talk to the worms. When it realized how different the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.
从前,有个圆圈缺了一块楔子,便四处寻找那块它失去了了楔子。由于不完整,所以它只能慢慢地滚动。一路上,它欣赏美丽的鲜花,与虫儿谈天说地,还沐浴在和煦的阳光之中。圆圈找到过许多不同的楔子,但没有一块与它相配。所双它们统统弃置路旁,继续寻觅。终于有一天,它找到了一块非常合适的。圆圈是那样的高兴。现在它总算是完整的了,什么也不缺。它把那块缺失的楔子装好,就开始滚动起来。现在它已然成了一个完整的圆圈,所以滚动起来飞快,快得无暇理会花儿,当然也不可能与虫儿畅谈。当圆圈意识到它这么飞快地滚动的时候所年到的世界是何等的不一样,它不禁停了下来,将找一的配件弃置路旁,又开始慢慢地滚动。

The lesson of the story was that in some strange sense we are more whole when we are missing something. The man who has everything is in some says a poor man. He will never know what it feels like to yearn, to hope, to nourish his soul with the dream of something better. He will never know the experience of having someone who loves him give him something he has always wanted or never had.
这个故事的内涵是说,在某种奇妙的意义上,我们在失去一些东西的时候反而会更加完整。一个应有尽有的人可能在某些方面反而是个穷人。他永远也体会不到渴望、期待以及让灵魂怀抱对更美好的事物的梦想。他也永远不会有这样一种体验:一个爱他的人送给他梦寐以求的或者从未拥有过的东西。

There is a wholeness about the person who has come to terms with his limitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness about the man or woman who has learned that he or she is strong enough to go through a tragedy and survive, she can lose someone and still feel like a complete person.
当接受了自己的局限性时,人就拥有了一种完整,因为可以勇敢地放些那些不切实际的梦想,不会因此而觉得自己是个一无是处的人。人生的完整性还在于人们知道了如何在面对灾难的时候勇敢地挺过去,她可以在失去一个人之后,却仍然感受到自己是一个完整的人。
