Build Something Relatively Eternal amid Empty IllusionWhen you have understood the gap between the evanescence life and the lasting values you want to build, and you actively design your own life and treasure every minute and every second of life, you will not pass through life in vain, you will not take the false as true, and you will not cling to the illusory as real.

Only when you go on like this, will you be able to live out the true dignity and value of life, and bring to the world things of true beauty and benefit。(page  226)


~An excerpt from The World is a Reflection of the Mind.

在虚幻中建立相对的永恒


当你明白了生命的易失和你想建立的不朽价值之同的落差,进而积极设计自己的人生,珍惜生命的每一分每一秒时,就不会虚度人生,不会认假成真,不会执幻为实。这样一来,你才能活出生命真正的尊严与价值,为世界带来一些真正美好且有益的东西。(183页)
