Empty (depth good text)

/July 2022

I have read such a passage:

"when we were young, we faced the world and couldn't wait to create and fill it."

with colorful and full colors, with gorgeous and sincere brush strokes, tell the world, tell yourself:

I have loved, I have been here, I have succeeded.

however, in front of the canvas of life, none of us is a painter who can spread colors at will. "

Life needs a certain degree, but if it is too full, it will lead to disaster.

emptiness is a necessary debugging of life; emptiness is an indispensable excess of tension and relaxation; emptiness is also a lubricant for physical and mental maintenance.

it is only when you get older that you understand that leaving a "blank" for life is the magnanimity and wisdom of life.


empty, I have heard such a story from my colleagues


there was a young company manager who saw a psychiatrist for months because of high nervous tension, but his condition did not improve.

at night, after swallowing sleeping pills, he still clung to his laptop and called incoherently to control his foreign business, his palms sweaty.

A friend advised him to learn to steal from his busy schedule, to find a less useful trivia every day, and to focus on it wholeheartedly while doing it, thinking about nothing else.

he said with a wry smile:

my friends think that maybe this is the problem, his business is all important, even playing ball is psychological warfare in the workplace, not to mention lunch and evening entertainment.

A friend asked him if there was a desk plant in the company, and if so, he might as well set aside 15 minutes every day to take good care of it.

in addition to watering, you can also buy some white sand to cover the soil surface.

prepare a small clean cloth and wipe the leaves carefully.

he said to his friend:

A friend told him that there was a rich businessman in the United States who would temporarily put aside his work and take a piece of cloth from the drawer to nail buttons whenever he found himself in a high degree of tension.

now there are more tricks. The rich businessman sharpens pencils, makes origami, takes pictures outside the window, and even sketches his subordinates.

his friend's words moved him, so he began to squeeze out his spare time, trying to do some chores that had nothing to do with business, such as growing flowers, climbing mountains, reading leisure books, and so on.

slowly, his nerves were relieved, and he finally realized the beautiful feeling of calmness.

in real life, many people have a kind of habitual thinking. They always like to ask whether it is useful:

"what's the use of reading poetry? can it be eaten as a meal?"

"what's the use of practicing calligraphy? can you sell it for money?"

"what's the use of fishing? can you expand your network?"

Liang Wendao has a good saying:

this is true. If the spring is too tight, it will break, and people will "die" if they are too busy.

steal your spare time and do something that seems "useless" in order to catch your breath, take your time, rest your feet, save energy, and travel light.

stealing leisure from busy time, what is stolen is not only leisure, but also a kind of interest, a kind of relaxation, a kind of Enron, but also a way to live up to one's own life.

if tiredness in leisure means planning in advance, then stealing leisure in a busy time is a great wisdom in life.


empty is to learn to refrain

Wang Yangming said:

people's energy is always limited, don't be too crowded in life, and you should give yourself some space in everything.

if you don't know how to restrain your desire, you will get nothing if you want everything.

I have seen such a story.

in 1889, Edward Michelin founded a tire factory in Claremont-Ferrand, France. Because of the high demand, his tire factory became a big company in a few years.

as the company gets bigger and bigger, Edward is exposed to more and more business:

he found shipbuilding profitable, so he set up a shipyard; he thought the wine-making industry was also very good, so he set up another brewing company.

when Edward slowly became Claremont Ferrand's richest man, problems began to arise-- he had endless things to deal with every day, endless decisions every day, and he was exhausted every day.

but a few years later, all the businesses, including the tire company, began to lose money, and Edward wondered very much.

one day, Edward visited a vineyard and saw that the farmers were picking down some green grapes in a whole basket.

the farmers explained:

"if some of the grapes are not removed, all the grapes will compete for nutrients from each other, while removing some of them will save more nutrients for other grapes, and other grapes will grow bigger and better."

Edward chewed their words over and over again, and gradually realized a truth:

"isn't this the same as running the company?" I always thought that the more business I won, the more successful I was. In fact, I was distracting myself. As a result, I couldn't do one thing well. "

in just six months after that, Edward decisively shut down or sold all his companies and businesses except tyres and went all out to do one thing, which eventually led to his great career.

Today, the company's tire business has covered more than 200 countries and regions around the world, and Michelin Tire is also known as "the leader of global tire technology".

I like a sentence in the poem "A person's Life" very much:

if desire is compared to the throttle of a car, then abstinence is equivalent to the brake of a car. If a car has only the throttle but no brake, the result is likely to be a car crash.

only by living in moderation can you live.You have to be higher and happier.


empty is to know how to clear zero

in the 1954 World Cup, Brazil had high hopes, but lost unexpectedly to France, which was inferior to them in the semi-finals.

after the return plane landed, the players of the Brazilian team walked down gloomily one by one, and they didn't even want to talk to the fans who came to pick them up.

at this time, an old man suddenly appeared in the crowd, holding up an eye-catching banner that read "that's all".

the moment I saw this, many players were surprised, and then they were relieved and felt a rare relief.

four years later, Brazil finally won the World Cup.

the fans greeted at the airport sang and danced, the banners of welcome and praise could be seen everywhere, and the scene was bustling.

the captain of the Brazilian team watched carefully and found that the "but so" banner appeared again.

he was so confused that he went straight to the old man and asked:

the old man said:

"that's all for life. There is no pain or complacency, such as defeat and victory. "

the captain of the Brazilian team thought for a long time and said to the old man:

the old man agreed, and the "but so" banner is now hanging in the most conspicuous place in the Brazilian team's honor gallery.

this story reminds me of a sentence that Bai Yansong once said:

it is inevitable that there will be successes and failures in one's life. How to face prosperity and adversity tests one's mentality and wisdom.

in good times, only by "returning to zero" at the right time can you guard against arrogance and rashness, neither sleep on honor nor memorize success as a "burden".

in times of adversity, have the courage to "return to zero" so that you will not give up and never recover, but will be able to start from scratch and make a comeback.

those who blindly fall into the sufferings of the past and are unable to extricate themselves are pitiful, and those who blindly revel in their past successes and do not want to make progress is pathetic.

both good and bad things will become a thing of the past. Learn to let go and be good at clearing zeros, so that life will not lose its way.


emptiness is the highest realm of life

Laozi said in the Book of morality:

the main idea of this passage is:

Thirty spokes come together on a hub, and it is precisely because the middle is empty that it has the function of wheels;

mixes clay to make utensils, precisely because the middle is empty, so it has the function of instruments.

chisel doors and windows and build a house. It is precisely because the middle is empty that it has the function of a house.

"you" brings convenience to people, but "nothing" has the greatest effect.

the wisdom of sages is enlightening and enlightening.

things are valuable because of emptiness, and people become smart because of emptiness.

some people say:

stealing leisure from busy time, controlling desires and being good at clearing zeros are all wonderful ways to make the spirit "empty".

A bird cannot soar freely if its wings are tied with gold; a man's spiritual space is too full to be truly free.

the word "empty" contains the wisdom of life and makes people have a long aftertaste.
