2010-1-29:自助者天助

 

美国Amway公司的已故创始人写过一本书就叫《自助者天助》,当时还不是很明白这5个字的意思,那本书也没怎么看。今天写下这个题目,是因为刚刚读完一本蕴含厚重思想的小说《遥远的救世主》,之后就明白了这个题目的意思。我是先看的根据小说改编的电视剧,著名演员王志文主演,我太喜欢了,然后又把小说找来读了一篇,感觉非常过瘾。

小说情节跌宕起伏,扣人心弦,情节引人入胜,高潮不断,最重要,也是最让人猛醒的是小说对于中国悠久的传统文化的批判以及关于宗教的解析。

天底下到底有没有神?马克思唯物主义思想告诉我们,没有。

既然没有神,那么人们求神拜佛祈求平安富贵还有什么用?难道仅仅因为祈求了,拜了,就有希望了?这种祈求来的希望是个绝对的假象,仅仅只是心里层面的一点安慰。

那什么是神?神既道,道法自然,就是马克思唯物主义告诉我们的实事求是,按照事物的本质规律办事,但真要做到这一点,特别是在一个已经成型的社会价值体系中,那是太难!

于是需要帮助的人只有自助。如何自助?既按照自然规律办事,实事求是就是自助,这样的自助既是天助。祈祷没有用,必须自己付出实际行动;而等待别人的救助不能从根本上解决问题,只会让被救助者逐渐地失去自己的造血功能,永远等待救世主。

小说通过一个扶贫的故事深刻的将“自助者天助”这个理念展现在我们面前,真的是非常的精彩。

另外,小说对于宗教有许多描写,发人深思。

我的水平还不足以完全理解作者想表达的含义,至少有一点我是认同的,对于宗教,要不迷信!

 

 

God helps those who help themselves

 

One of the Amway founders who had died wrote a book named 《God helps those who help themselves》. When I read this book, I couldn’t understand the meaning of the book title. After finishing another wonderful novel named 《distant saviour》which is full of deep thoughts about Chinese traditional culture and religions, I realized the meaning of the title. So I am writing it down here. I like 《distant saviour》very much. First I watched the TV play of it, and then I found out the original novel in the Internet to read . I enjoyed it very much.

The novel’s story is attractive from the beginning to the end. And the most important and remindful things are the disapproval from the heart for Chinese traditional cultures and the deep understandings of different religions.

Are there some kinds of divinities up in the heaven or down in the hell? The materialism theory of Marx tell us the answer is no.

There is not any Gods. Then, are there some effects when people pray for anything they want? The answer is also no. Pray is just a piece of consolation in people’s heart.

So what the hell is the God? God is the laws of nature. Whoever acts according to the laws of nature can get the god’s help. It is no use if we do nothing but pray. We must put it into actions. Waiting for others’ help can not solve problem ultimately. It can only make us waiting forever.

The novel unfolds the spirit of “God helps those who help themselves” through a story about one person helps (helping) the poor people. It’s really attractive.

In addition, the words about religions in the novel also enlighten me deeply. I can not fully understand the meaning of it now, but I agree one thing at least that is we should not (hold) blind faith in religions.

 

存在有There be(is/are  was/were  have been) = (意义)have有

not any=no

saviour (is savior);

materialism 唯物主义
