生命中的四位爱人

 

(文章出自:译言   发布时间:2012-11-02)

 

从前,有一位富商,他有四个妻子。他最钟爱的是最小的妻子。他用华丽的服装来装扮她,用美味佳肴来供养她。富商对她的这位妻子关怀备至,体贴入微,还把最美好的东西都给了她。

富商也很爱他的第三个妻子,他为她感到骄傲,并且喜欢向他的朋友炫耀他的这位妻子。然而,他经常会为担心妻子跟别的男人跑掉而感到忧心忡忡。

当然,他也很爱第二位妻子。她不仅善解人意而且温柔耐心。事实上,她是富商的红颜知己。每次遇到困难时,他总会去找她寻求帮助,而她也总能够帮助他渡过难关,走出困境。

至于他的第一位妻子,她可是一位忠贞的伴侣,既帮他打理生意,又帮他照顾家庭。尽管她深爱着富商,但他却对此熟视无睹,一点儿也不在意她。

有一天,商人病倒了,他知道自己将不久将要离开人世。回首自己奢华繁荣的一生,商人不禁感慨道:“虽然我有四个老婆。但是在我死后可是孤苦伶仃的,这该是多么孤单呀!”

因此,他对第四位妻子说:我最疼爱的就是你了,给你买最漂亮的衣服,无微不至地关怀着你。现在我就要离开人世了,你愿意跟随我离去并永远陪伴着我吗?”“坚决不!”她留下这一句话便离开了。

问第三位妻子道:“我一直都非常宠爱你,而今我即将离开人世,你愿意与我一起并永远陪伴我吗?”“不。”她回答道,“生命多么美好啊,你离开人世后,我会改嫁他人。”商人听后十分悲痛。

接着他又问第二位妻子道:“从前我一有困难总向你求助,而你也总是能为我排忧解难。现在我想请你再帮我一次,要是我离开人世,你会跟随我并一直陪伴着我吗?”“对不起  ,这次我恐怕无能为力了。”她说道 “我只能让你入土为安。”商人听完这席话仿佛遭遇晴天霹雳,彻底地绝望了。 这位妻子的回答像是一把利刃直插富商内心。他伤心欲绝,

这时,旁边传来一个声音:“我愿意与你一同离去。不管你走到了哪里,我都会陪伴着你。商人抬头,看到了自己的第一位妻子。她是这么的消瘦,营养不良的样子。商人感伤万分,说道:“要是从前好好对待你该多好啊。”

其实,我们每一个人的一生都有四位爱人。第四位妻子是我们的躯体。无论我们投入多少时间和精力去装扮她,等到我们死后,他们也终究会离我们而去。

第三位妻子好比我们的财富,社会地位和金钱,一旦我们离世,他们终会被转移他人。第二位妻子则是我们的家人和朋友。在我们的有生之年,不论他们与我们多么亲近,最多也只能在坟墓前送我们最后一程。

至于第一位妻子,它则是我们的灵魂。当我们沉醉于物质金钱和其他感官享受时,它常常会被忽略不计。结果怎么样呢?它才是唯一能永远伴随我们的,或许,从现在开始,我们应当悉心照料它,而不是要等到弥留之际才懊悔万分。

 

                 

 

                             4 wives in our lives

 

There was a merchentwho had 4 wifes. He loved the fourth wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treat her to delicacies. He look great care of her and gave her nothing burt the best.

He also loved the 3th wife very much. He ’s very proud of her and always want to show off her to his friends. However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.

He too, loved his 2nd wife. She isa very considerate person, always patient and fact is the merchant’confidante. Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him throught difficult times.

Now , the merchant’s 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and binsiness as well as taking care of the household. However , the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the merchant fellill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, “now I have 4 wives with me . But when I die, I’ll be alone. How lonely I’ll be.

Thus , he asked the 4th wife, “ loved you most endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company ? ” “No way ! ”replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word,

The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant’s heart. The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife , “I have loved you so much for all my wives .Now that I ’m dying , will you follow me and keep me company ? ”“No! ”replie the 3rd wife.“Life is so good over here ! I ’m going to remarry when you die! ” The merchant’s heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife , “I always turned to you for help and you’ve always helped me out .Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me aompany?” “I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time !’’ replied the 2nd wife, “At the very most, I can only send you to your grave.’’ The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastaded.

Then a voice called out , “I ’ll leave with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.’’ The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was no skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the merchant said , “I should have taken much better care of you while I could have.

Actually, we all have 4 wives in our lives.

The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and efford we lavish in making it look good , it’ll leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we died, they all go to others.

The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

The 1st wife is in fact our soul , often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth and sensual pleasure.

Guess what ? It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Perharps it’s a good idea to cultivate and strenghth it now rather than to wait until we’ve on our deathbed to lament.
