当我开始爱自己-卓别林 英文原文

AS I BEGAN TO LOVE MYSELF

(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”!

卓别林-当我开始爱自己译文

当我真正开始爱自己

卓别林

当我开始爱自己,

我发现痛苦和情感折磨,都只是在提醒自己:我正在远离自我。

如今,我明白,这就是“真实”.

当我开始爱自己,

我才明白把自己的愿望强加于人是多么的冒犯他人,就算我知道,时机并不成熟,那人也还没有做好准备,就算那个人就是我自己。

如今,我称之为“尊重”.

当我开始爱自己,

我不再渴望不同的人生,我知道一切发生在我身边的事情,都是在引领我成长。

如今,我称之为“成熟”.

当我开始爱自己,

我才明白我一直在对的地方和时间,发生的一切都是恰如其分,由此我可以冷静。

如今,我称之为“自信”.

当我开始爱自己,

我确保自己的时间,不再去构思宏伟的未来。

现在,我只做带给我快乐和幸福的事,做自己热爱和让心欢喜的事,用我自己的方式和节奏。

如今,我称之为“诚实”.

当我开始爱自己,

我远离对我健康有害的东西——食物、人、事情、环境和一切让我失望和远离自我的东西。

之前我把这种态度叫做健康的利己主义,

如今,我明白,这就是“自爱”.

当我开始真正爱自己,

我停止追求永远正确,时而也会犯错。

如今,我发现,那就是“谦逊”.

当我开始爱自己,

我不念过去,不畏将来,现在我只活在一切正在进行的当下,

如今我活在每一天,日复一日,这就是“完美”.

当我开始爱自己,

我意识到我的精神会使我变得焦虑和病态,

但当我感受到我的心灵,心智变成一个珍贵的伙伴,

如今,我称这种结合为“心灵的智慧”.

我们无须再害怕自己与他人的争执、矛盾和各种问题。

即使是星星有时也会碰撞,并形成新的世界。

如今,我明白,那就是“生命”.
