双语美文:给与,让你我相连

本文属阅读资料

给与,让你我相连

In Giving I Connect with Others

I have lived with passion and in a hurry, trying to accomplish too many things. I never had time to think about my beliefs until my 28-year-old daughter Paula fell ill. She was in a coma for a year and I took care of her at home, until she died in my arms in December of 1992.

我总是生活在激情和匆忙之中,想做太多的事。直到我28岁的女儿保拉(Paula)病倒,我才抽出时间去思考我的信仰。她昏迷了整整一年,我在家照料她,直到1992年12月,她在我怀中死去。

During that year of agony and the following year of my grieving, everything stopped for me. There was nothing to do -- just cry and remember. However, that year also gave an opportunity to reflect upon my journey and the principles that hold me together. I discovered that there is consistency in my beliefs, my writing and the way I lead my life. I have not changed, I am still the same girl I was fifty years ago, and the same young woman I was in the seventies. I still lust for life, I am still ferociously independent, I still crave justice and I fall madly in love easily.

在那一年的痛苦和接下来整整一年的悲恸中,我生活中的一切都停止了。我什么都不做——只是哭泣和回忆。然而,这一年也使我得以回顾走过的人生,思考那些支撑我的信念。我发现我的信念原则、我的作品风格和我的生活方式是一贯的。我没有改变,我仍然是五十年前那个女孩,仍然是七十年代那个姑娘。我仍然渴望真正的生活,仍然保持极端的独立,仍然追求正义,仍然轻易地陷入热恋之中。

Paralyzed and silent in her bed, my daughter Paula taught me a lesson that is now my mantra: You only have what you give. It's by spending yourself that you become rich.
瘫痪在床、昏迷不醒的女儿教会我并使我坚信的是:给予什么,就拥有什么。只有付出能使人富有。

Paula led a life of service. She worked as a volunteer helping women and children, eight hours a day, six days a week. She never had any money, but she needed very little. When she died she had nothing and she needed nothing. During her illness I had to let go of everything: her laughter, her voice, her grace, her beauty, her company and finally her spirit. When she died I thought I had lost everything. But then I realized I still had the love I had given her. I don't even know if she was able to receive that love. She could not respond in any way, her eyes were somber pools that reflected no light. But I was full of love and that love keeps growing and multiplying and giving fruit.
女儿的一生都在付出。她是一个帮助妇女和儿童的志愿者,风雨无阻。她没有多少收入,但她所求甚少。在她去世的时候,一无所有,她也一无所求。在她卧床期间,我眼睁睁地看着她的一切都离我远去:她的笑貌,她的音容,她的婉约,她的娇美,她的陪伴,甚至她的灵魂。当她去世的时候,我以为我已经一无所有了。可是后来我意识到,我仍然拥有我给予她的爱。我甚至不知道那个时候她能否感受到我的爱。她无法作出任何反应,她的双眼就像浑浊的水潭,没有一丝光泽。但我心中充满了爱,这种爱生生不息,开花结果。

The pain of losing my child was a cleansing experience. I had to throw overboard all excess baggage and keep only what is essential. Because of Paula, I don't cling to anything anymore. Now I like to give much more than to receive. I am happier when I love than when I am loved. I adore my husband, my son, my grandchildren, my mother, my dog, and frankly I don't know if they even like me. But who cares? Loving them is my joy.
失去爱女之痛对我而言是一种净化。我必须剔除那些无谓的累赘,留下生命的精髓。因为女儿,我不再是那个什么事情都放不下的人。如今,我希望给予甚于受赠。爱人比被爱更让我欣喜。我爱丈夫,爱儿子,爱孙子,爱母亲,爱我的狗。说实话,我甚至不知道他们是不是喜欢我。但我不在乎,爱他们我就很开心。

Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine.

给予,给予,给予——如果不彰显,那些经验、学识和天赋有何意义?如果不讲述,那些经历过的故事有何意义?如果不分享,那些财富又有何意义?我可不打算将这些带进棺材。在给予中,我与他人紧紧相连,与世界紧紧相连,与上帝紧紧相连。

It is in giving that I feel the spirit of my daughter inside me, like a soft presence.

在给予中,我仿佛感到女儿的灵魂悄悄地醒来,与我紧紧相连..
