苟日新,日日新,又日新之 (1)

Progress today, progress everyday, progress constantly

天行健,君子以自強不息。
The heavens are in motion ceaselessly; the enlightened exert themselves constantly.

岳武穆慈語有問曰:多所知,與無所知,其身執善乎?聖曰:無知者一軀襄也, 雖不死,累人者必眾甚矣!
Someone asked: difference between a knowledgeful versus an ignorant leader.  Sage replied: Under the ignorant leader, the people may not die but trapped tirelessly!

然多所知者好,其用心也多,出於利人即善矣,出於害人即不善矣, 故多所知學者必正矣。
Knowledge is good, its intentions are also many, the interest in benefiting is good, but to harm people is bad; therefore, the knowledgeable people should have mindfulness.

切天之生人也,使其耳可以聞,不學, 其聞不若聾;使眼可以見,不學,其 見不若盲;
Let's look at some examples of talent. Heaven give people ears to hear, but if one is not willing to listen, he is as good as deaf. Heaven give people the eyes to see, but if one is not willing to observe, he is as good as the blind.

使其可以言,不學,其言不若爽;使其心可以知,不學,其知不若狂。
Heaven give people the mouth to speak, but if one is not willing learn how to communicate, his words are as good as the mute. Heaven give people the heart to feel, but if one is not willing learn, his perspective is as good as the insane.

凡所學者,非能益也,使全天之所生而勿敗之,是謂善學。
Therefore, if what is learned has no positive meaning to people, it is against God's will. As long as the we use God's gift for good, then we are using it appropriately.

故事
Story

原子彈和核能電廠
Atomic bomb and nuclear power plant

日本,是一個擁有悠久歷史的島國,
Japan is an island country with a long history.

由於天災地變頻繁,物產匱乏,所以渴望能夠安居樂業,子孫繁衍,使得他們一直有一個大陸夢,
As natural disasters become more frequent and products are scarce, they are eager to live and work in peace and prosper, so that they have always had a mainland dream.

這樣的夢想,經過無數代人的發酵,終於觸發了二次世界大戰,血腥的侵略歷史, 而結束這場戰爭的關鍵,
Such a dream, after countless generations of fermentation, finally triggered the Second World War, a bloody history of aggression,

就是美國在廣島和長崎投下, 殺傷力驚人的兩顆原子彈。
the key to ending this war is the two atomic bombs dropped by America on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, with amazing lethality.

對鈾的原子核以中子撞擊,原子核大約可以分裂成一半,並放出2~3個中子,再次撞擊其他鈾原子,如此繼續分裂稱為連鎖反應。
The nucleus of uranium is impacted by neutrons, and the nucleus can split into half, and release 2 to 3 neutrons, and then hit other uranium atoms again, this continued split is called a chain reaction.

如此在100萬分之一秒的極短時間內連鎖反應而產生巨大的能量,原子彈就是利用這個原理。
In a very short time of one millionth of a second, a chain reaction produces huge energy. The atomic bomb uses this principle.

核能發電也是同樣利用鈾原子核分裂產生的能量,
Nuclear power generation also uses the energy produced by uranium nuclear splitting,

與原子彈不同之處,在於核電廠的核分裂連鎖反應,加以有效控制,不讓它發生劇烈爆炸,
How its different from the atomic bomb is that the chain reaction of nuclear fission in the nuclear power plant is effectively controlled to prevent it from exploding violently,

而是讓核分裂緩慢並持續,將能量以細水長流的方式加以利用。
but to slowly react and continue nuclear fission, using the energy in a long stream of water.

同樣的原料,同樣的原理,不同的用心, 一個是威脅萬物的毀滅性武器,另一個卻是造福人類的能源,
The same raw material, the same principle, and different intentions, one is a destructive weapon that threatens everything, and the other is an energy source that benefits mankind.

所以「心」是萬善之源,卻也是萬惡之基,不可不慎。
So the「heart」the source of all good, but it is also the root of all evil. You must be cautious.

省思
Reflection

一、善念惡念,一念之間, 差之毫釐,卻失之千里。
Good thoughts and evil thoughts, the slightest difference between one thought, a miss is as good as a mile.

二、大學問、高知識,可以成就大善, 也可以成為大惡,關鍵在智慧, 不在知識。
Broad learning and high knowledge can make great achievements. What's good can also become a great evil. The key lies in wisdom, not knowledge.

結論 
Conclusion

中庸:「君子戒慎乎其所不睹,恐懼乎其所不聞。
The Doctrine of the Mean:「 The superior man does not wait till he sees things, to be cautious, nor till he hears things, to be apprehensive.

莫見乎隱,莫顯乎微,故君子慎其獨也。」
There is nothing more visible than what is secret, and nothing more manifest than what is minute. Therefore the superior man is watchful over himself, when he is alone.」

人在獨處的時候,隱微處的用心,往往是決定性的關鍵,所以千萬別錯用心,這不僅是修行態度,更是人生處世待人的態度。
When a person is alone, concealed attention is often the decisive key, so don't misuse your mind, this is not only the attitude of practice, but also the attitude of dealing with others in life.
