The rose that bloomed overnight 夜间突然开花的玫瑰

Like the rose that bloomed overnight suddenly

The very next day it is faded and decaying

Crinkling up the petals as death states its presence

Like how life seem to pass me by

Coming and going so swiftly and yet at the same time so slowly

Events unfolding and evolving mysteriously and at the same time predictably

Traces of time I cannot ignore and escape

Though the past remain distant as an ancient memory

Nevertheless it seduces me to seek solace in something familiar

Hoping to outsmart fear and avoid facing the unknown

Preventing me from living fully in the present

Torturing me to question and wonder about the future

Alas my senses and emotions are humbled by the grace of Nature

I remember death is actually birth in reverse

Their co-existence is what the Universe is made of

Like the sun that rises and dies every sunrise and sunset

Like the moon that hides away in the day and shines in the night

Like the bird that dies and nourishes the soil upon the great tree grows

Even the seemingly insignificant micro-organism possess its invaluable existence

Every grain of sand strategically placed on the face of the Earth as it is meant to be

All beings and life forms gathered here for a higher purpose we have yet to understand

Our existence is a miraculous celebration of Life itself!

Is not a triumph victory as the chosen ones to be here?

Hence let not a fleeting moment of confusion or despair doubt the wonder of you

Be here now

Cherish and be thankful for the gift of Life bestowed upon you

Celebrate the wonder of being alive

Intoxicate your senses with pure love, joy and gratitude

As long as you are here and able to feel

In the grander scheme of the Universe, all is perfect in every way

好象夜间突然开花的玫瑰

隔天已经凋谢和腐烂

皱掉的花瓣确认了死亡的临在

就好象觉得我错过了生活

来的那么飞越同时又那么缓慢

事故的发生和变化显得那么神秘的同时又那么自然

时光的痕迹我无法否认和逃避

虽然往事只是个模糊的记忆

然而它引诱我在熟悉的感觉中找到所谓的安全感

希望可以欺骗恐惧和逃避未知

阻止我全心全意的活在当下

折磨我审问和为将来焦急

最终我的理性和情绪被伟大的大自然完全颠覆

我想起死亡其实是诞生的倒反

它们同时的存在就是宇宙所组成的

就好象每个日出所诞生和每个日落所去世的太阳

就好象白天躲起来和夜晚发亮着的月亮

就好象死去的鸟儿如何滋润成长着的大树的那片土地

哪怕甚至最不起眼的微生物都有它的无限存在价值

每颗沙粒非常完美地被安顿在地球的每个角落

所有的生物和生命为了我们还未理解的更高尚目的集中在这里

我们的存在本身就是生命的奇迹!

被选中在这里存在本身岂不是值得光荣的胜利?

因此千万别让一时的迷惑和焦急怀疑你独特和奥妙的存在

请全心全意在这里

珍惜和感恩宇宙献给你的宝贵生命之礼

庆祝活着的奥妙

让真爱、喜悦以及感恩激活你所有的感官

只要你在这里,只要你能感觉

在宇宙的伟大计划中,其实一切都很完美
