Päevake

Suurema osa tänasest päevast olen kuulanud ühte Rachmaninovi plaati. Võtsin selle riiulist täitsa ehku-peale, aga nii täpselt sobib meeleoluga, et...

See pilt on izismile.com'ist nagu alati... huvitav, mida siin ka mängitakse?





Samal ajal kirjutasin märkmikku ümber ühte ingliskeelset "Daodejingi" versiooni...
Jõudsin sellega täna lõpule. Silma torkas 79. salm, mis on üldiselt olnud minu viimase aja moto:

If you blame someone else,
there is no end to the blame.

Therefore the Master
fulfills her own obligations
and corrects her own mistakes.
She does what she needs to do
and demands nothing of others.

Aga mulle hirmsasti meeldib ka katke 20. salmist, eespool :)

Stop thinking, and end your problems.
What difference between yes and no?
What difference between success and failure?
Must you value what others value,
avoid what others avoid?
How ridiculous!

Other people are excited,
as though they were at a parade.
I alone don't care,
I alone am expressionless,
like an infant before it can smile.

Other people have what they need;
I alone possess nothing.
I alone drift about,
like someone without a home.
I am like an idiot, my mind is so empty.

Other people are bright;
I alone am dark.
Other people are sharper;
I alone am dull.
Other people have a purpose;
I alone don't know.
I drift like a wave on the ocean,
I blow as aimless as the wind.

... eriti tumedaks tehtud osa siin lõpus - korrutan endale neid ridu pidevalt, sageli ka ainult esimest, tumedat :D


Tao Te Chingi versioon on pärit sellelt lehelt.
