In 2023, a disturbing journey has begun. Sometimes it is because the road ahead is unpredictable, sometimes it is because it is difficult to leave the starting place.
A few days ago, I needed to find strength and watched the trilogy of The Lord of the Rings again. After 20 years, I suddenly found that I had never really understood it before.
My favorite character is Gandalf. No matter how hopeless the situation is, as long as he appears, you will be relieved and ignite hope. However, Gandalf did not come in an all-powerful role. Unlike Frodo, Gandalf had no natural resistance to the Ring, but he understood and controlled his desire. Gandalf has all kinds of fairy friends, and he enjoys it when he is with the little people. Sometimes, regardless of his face, he tried to win the support of the powerful. After being rejected, he turned and left, never taking chances. He always tries to find the best game in the situation, even if the winning rate of that game is only 1%.
Perhaps Gandalf's strength comes from his belief in mission. He never entangled himself in the “so is the reality ", but committed himself to the "reality should be" without hesitation. How many people dare to go upstream in despair? How can the responsibility be easier than the lazy afternoon? People always make choices or decisions that are difficult to define. Facing the uncertain future, allocating limited resources requires wisdom, motivation and courage, and more importantly, motivation.
1. The first motivation is thinking, which is the brain;
2. The second power is the heart, which is the part of love;
3. The third driving force is the will, which is our hands and action.
Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings uses his brain to make decisions. He tries to use all kinds of resources to think and act around the ultimate goal. Frodo's greatest talent is that he can resist the temptation of the Ring more than anyone else. Sam, by acting, felt that since he had made the right choice, he should stick to it. When Frodo doubted his mission at that time, he asked Sam: "What faith do we hold?" Sam replied: "There must be some beauty in this world that is worth fighting for."
Human excellence, like vines, grows like that. When nurtured, it thrives and reaches the blue sky. However, if you really believe in the tranquility of plants and the nourishment of fate, why would you go on a journey that is not consistent with probability? In this dark and unclear world, I need meaning, probability and temperature, as well as luck that I cherish.
Most people, first make a choice, then deduce the correct reason, and then give a meaningful explanation. How can I wait and see at the table of fate, whose life is not the only bet? Sam, Merry and Pippin in "The Lord of the Rings" do not take the initiative to choose. They are like drinking too much wine, throwing dice at random, and then hitting the road at 6.
Maybe each of us is a mouse of fate, and life itself is a single dice game. In such an external environment, maybe I have nowhere to escape. But I can still think like Sam: now that I have won the game, let me play it. What we need to do is not to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of A or B, but to never give up the chance to throw dice. In this life, it's time to play a game.
On the vast and boundless plain, Gandalf was alone, white robe, white horse, facing the spirit of death, he went upstream and raised his wooden staff. Gandalf knew that only human beings were their own saviors, and the only thing he could do was to let himself be present.
There are flowers and fruits everywhere, and life is full of beer, pipe and endless revelry. The Brandy River, the hole at the bottom of the bag, Gandalf's fireworks, the colored lights hanging on the tree in the party... The carefree people forget the time and wait for the arrival of a person in the dance. He drove the carriage full of fireworks and was about to light the whole starry sky.
2022 is passing by, which is really hard to say. Uncertainty is everywhere. The more uncertain we are, the more we know how to cherish the warmth and certainty of standing with "our own people". Winter will surely pass and spring will come. When the spring comes, let's cook wine and tea together and talk about the future with smile!
Everyone is waiting for a warm force. Everyone is waiting for a pair of hands. But perhaps more importantly, we should stretch out our hands to embrace the world, and every one of us. Don't worry, they are always behind you. Now, it's your turn to pass this warmth to every one of us.
