I remember reading a text that said that if a person is happy, the weight of the heart is very light. A person with a heart as light as a feather can go to heaven. On the contrary, if a person's heart is heavy and wrinkled with many sins and troubles, he will go to hell.
I always remember this clip, and I think it's really beautiful that the heart is as light as a feather. For a while, when I wrote giveaways to my friends, I often wrote this sentence: May your heart be as light as a feather! In my opinion, this is the best wish. Recently I have often heard people say, may you be treated kindly by the world. But in fact, everyone cannot always be treated kindly by the world. Many times, we will be injured by the world's bright guns or dark arrows. But if your heart is as light as a feather, the swords and halberds you encounter will converge and leave you with no scars. Overcoming rigidity with softness has always been an ingenious way of life, and it is also a great kind of life wisdom.
May your heart be as light as a feather, what a poetic and beautiful realm! The texture and posture of feathers are beautiful, light, soft, and warm. When they slide over the cheek, they are like a light kiss, which makes people feel very comfortable. If the human heart can be as light as a feather, there will be a soft and kind tenderness and a free floating pleasure.
The ancients said: "If there is no idle matter to worry about, it is a good time in the world." The heart is as light as a feather, not disturbed by the world, not trapped by fame and fortune, not disturbed by disputes, and people really live out their own realm. Qian Zhongshu said: "Take a bath, look at a flower, eat a meal, if you feel happy, it is not all because the bath is clean, the flowers are blooming well, or the dishes are to your taste, mainly because you are not concerned." The heart is not concerned, everything is beautiful. On the contrary, if there are too many obstacles in the heart, you will turn a blind eye to how beautiful the flowers are, and you will feel unwilling to eat how delicious the food is.
It is normal to be disturbed one after another, and there is nothing in my heart. Whose life is not a mess? A cheerful person can turn a mess into an invisible mess and deal with it indifferently; a narrow-minded person will trap himself with a mess and make a cocoon. There is a person around me with a small heart, but she is also self-aware. She calls herself a "sensitive physique", and a little thing can torture her into sleeplessness all night. Some time ago, she always felt that everyone in the office was against her. She would be sullen all day because of a look from someone else, and she would be very anxious because of a word from the leader. She put everything in her heart and magnified it infinitely, looking like she was worried every day. When there is something in her heart, troubles always follow her like a shadow. The so-called "cutting is constant, and the reason is still messy".
Learn to let go, and the heart will be free of worries. I remember my grandmother had a mantra: what is it worth? In a dispute with her neighbors, she took a step back and said "what is it worth". When the crops were devastated, she said "what is it worth", and then regrouped and started a new round of planting. In my grandmother's view, only happiness is the most worthwhile thing, and she can't do something to make herself unhappy. The long-lived grandmother, who has no worries, has always laughed.
We are all ordinary people, and we all have times when we are depressed. As long as you are not entangled in troubles, troubles will leave quickly. When your heart is heavy, you might as well say to yourself: The heart is as light as a feather! Then take a deep breath, over and over again, and slowly exhale the bad emotions of depression until the heart is as light as a feather. Empty everything and give the heart a wide sea and sky, you can really laugh at success or failure, and look at the situation lightly. "Open your heart and allow the things in the world." A broad mind can accommodate the things in the world. If you gain or lose, you are indifferent to fame and fortune, and you are not surprised by honor or disgrace, that is, you can constantly cultivate your body and mind over a long period of time.
How difficult things are in the world, and life is difficult to achieve. People wish that you and I are both people who struggle hard in the world. But even so, we must treat the world tenderly. Life is magnanimous, and pure joy is the true taste. When you cultivate a Zen mind, you should live out the great realm and great feelings of life. May your heart be as light as a feather!
