Desire | 欲望

(阅读中文版请向下滚动)


A great many suffer from it. Some fought and died because of it. History speaks of men so full of it, yet no one talks about it, because they all want it.


Cities are fueled by it because hearts are filled with it. Fools rush in, where one wields it. The fallen lick their wounds, but lest they forget, before the day is long, they are right back at it.


Many learned men decide, better the world they try. But nothing a wise man does, so no one sees him in the light. So the learned man, in the darkness he struts; the sage he is not, yet others follow his prod, leading only to nought.


Great pretender karma is, where death denies and birth defies. The wheel keeps on turning, till wisdom defines him, and it loses. A sage unveils, it precipitates in him no more.



很多人因此而受苦。有些人因此奋斗而死。历史上所描述的人都充满了它,但如今没有人会谈论它,因为他们都想要实践它。


城市是由它而点燃,因为启动的心都充满了它。愚蠢的人涌进去,跟随一人挥舞着它。失败之者舔舐伤口,但别忘了,在这一天还没有结束之前,他们又会展开的追求它。


许多博学之人决定,尝试使得世界更好。但智者无所作为,也没有人会在光明中理会他。因此,博学之人,在黑暗中昂首阔步;他不是圣人,但他人还是会随着他,迈向一无所获。


因果是最大的伪装者:死亡暂时结束了它,但重生再次的无视它。轮子不停地转动,直到智慧定义了他,它即便输了。一个圣人揭开了生命的面纱,它便不再沉淀在他心中。
