ゲシュタルトの祈り

I do my thing, and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, And you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if by the chance we find each other, it’s beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped.   by Frederick Salomon Perls

「わたしはわたしの人生を生き、あなたはあなたの人生を生きる。
わたしはあなたの期待にこたえるために生きているのではないし、あなたもわたしの期待にこたえるために生きているのではない。
私は私。あなたはあなた。
もし縁があって、私たちが互いに出会えるならそれは素晴らしいことだ。
しかし出会えないのであれれば、それも仕方のないことだ」

ドイツの精神科医、フレデリック・パールズの「ゲシュタルトの祈り」と呼ばれる詩だそうです。私は心理学の勉強をしたことがないし、この文も翻訳の仕事でちょっと出てきただけなのですが、心に留ったのでメモしておきます。

Life

I got it from my friend, Tammy. She found it somewhere.. I want to share it with other friends.



Life is a chance, seize it.
Life is a beauty, admire it.
Life is a bliss, appreciate it.
Life is a dream, make it real.
Life is a challenge, face it.
...Life is a duty, accomplish it.
Llife is a game, play it.
Life is precious, take care.
Life is a richness, preserve it.
Life is love, enjoy it.
Life is a mystery, bore it.
Life is a promise, fill it.
Life is sadness, surmount it.
Life is an anthem, sing it.
Life is a fight, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, force it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is happiness, deserve it.
Life is the life, defend it

For My Grandmother

Last night I was thinking about my late grandmother who passed away 20 years ago when I was in the States. I was praying for her and saying sorry for not being with her when she was leaving this world. She was the one who practically raised me. So when I was saying sorry, suddenly the light of the room went off and came back soon. It was just like she winked at me....I was so happy to feel her existence near me.
