where ignorance is bliss , ti's folly to be wise

/June 2022

it is difficult to be smart, especially to be confused, and it is even more difficult to change from being smart to being confused. Put aside for a moment, take a step back, and feel at ease now, not for the benefit of later.

this was written by Zheng Banqiao over 50 years old after recalling the past.

the world competes to be smart people, which leads to too many "smart people". This cleverness is often said to be "wise" and "smart".

but there are always some people who don't want to scramble to get on the road, let alone appear too smart.

it is not that they are not smart, but that they are rarely confused.


it is rare to be confused. People who don't care too much

in this life, big things happen occasionally and little things happen frequently.

A lot of things are confused, unclear, and there are no answers. The more you try to figure it out, the more painful your life will be.

Human feelings, interests, and reasonableness, these things are unclear and unclear.

rare confusion is not really confused, but a clear, wise attitude after putting aside confusion.

"Zhuangzi's Theory of all things" talks about an experience:

Zhuangzi had a day off and dreamt that he had become a butterfly. He was happy and didn't know he was Zhuangzi. He was very happy to flap his wings.

suddenly I woke up to find that I was Zhuang Zhou, feeling lost.

I wonder whether Zhuangzi dreamed of becoming a butterfly or a butterfly became Zhuang Zhou.

We often have similar situations.

We often have some very real dreams, as if we had experienced them. When I woke up, I didn't know whether it was me in my dream or myself sitting on the bed in reality.

it is rare to be confused in life. Which is true, dream or reality? Who cares.

the more you care about it, the more painful it is. The more you pursue the truth, the more confused you become.

Life should be confused. Since you are living the present, you should seriously feel the beauty of the present.

Don't care whether you are walking in a dream or in reality, experience it carefully so that you don't waste this time.

this seems stupid, but it's actually wiser. It seems to indulge in it, but in fact it is sober inside.

there is a sentence in A Dream of Red Mansions:

since the truth can be false and nothing can be done, then we are a little confused and do not explore, the true or false, whether there is or not is virtual, and happiness is the reality.


it is rare to be confused and not to be too smart

when the water is clear, there is no fish, and when people observe, there is no apprentice. People who care too much about everything are hard to have friends. To be a man, you have to pretend to be confused sometimes.

see through it or not, see it clearly or not.

living in the mundane world, wouldn't it be less interesting if everything is sorted out clearly and clearly?

Smart people compete first, but in the end, they are tired of being smart.

Wang Xifeng in A Dream of Red Mansions is an example.

Wang Xifeng is smart and capable, and she can be said to be a "hero in the powder pile." she is decisive, ruthless and ruthless, but she also wears herself out physically and mentally.

in the end, it ended up being "too clever and too clever for Qing Qing's life".

people generally think that smart people are useful, but fools are useless.

so smart people work overtime every day, drain their painstaking efforts and wear themselves out.

is the so-called "fool", living an ordinary life of "don't say what you see, don't ask, don't know; mind your own business, go home early when you have nothing to do", the family is harmonious and beautiful.

the World of Zhuangzi also tells a story:

says that a stone carpenter took his disciples to the State of Qi and saw a huge oak tree with thousands of cattle in its shade. The disciples flocked to watch, but the stone carpenter left without looking back.

the disciples caught up breathlessly and said, "Master, I haven't seen such a big tree since I took an axe. You don't even look at it."

the stone carpenter said, "the boat made of this tree will sink and the furniture will rot. It's useless. What's it for?"

that night, the big oak tree dreamed to the stone carpenter, "the useful trees you mentioned have been cut down because they are useful." And the reason why I can survive for ten thousand years is precisely because I am useless. "

this is also what Zhuangzi said: the use of the useless is of great use.

because of the uselessness of the oak tree, it survived. What people think of as useless, for it, is the greatest effect.

isn't it useful and useless, just like people's intelligence and confusion?


the so-called: half deaf, half dumb, half confused, half drunk, half awake.

people who are really wise often learn to be confused, understand some, keep some, and keep a mystery.

Don't uproot the days, leave some mysteries in the earth, and never know what surprise will come out next time.

in this way, there are expectations in life. As the saying goes, it is difficult to be smart and difficult to be confused, and it is even more difficult to change from being smart to being confused.

it is rare to be confused, to be confused.
