如果對物品的依戀沒有為你帶來更好的生活 If the attachment didn’t bring you a better life.

“Attachment to such superficial pleasures will only bring more pain. ”— Holiness, The Dalai Lama His.

“依附表面的愉悅只會帶來更多的痛苦” —第十四世達賴喇嘛尊者

前幾天在房裡翻找東西,突然回神;房間已經一團亂,疲憊的坐在床上;問我自己,房間裡面半年以上沒有用到的東西,包含收到的明信片和禮物、很久沒穿的衣服鞋子和包包、心愛的書、旅遊紀念品等,到底為我帶來什麼?為什麼我無法將這些東西整理掉呢?

A few days ago, I was looking for things in the room. Suddenly I brought back my mind; the room was already in a mess. I was sitting on the bed and tired, and looking at things that were not used in the room for more than half a year, including received postcards and gifts, clothes, shoes and bags that are rarely used, books I love, tourist souvenirs, etc. What will all of these objects bring to me? Why I still have these things?

依戀讓你活在過去;慾望讓你活在未來

Attachment makes you live in the past; desire makes you live in the future.​

東西很多的原因很簡單,因為只進不出,慾望帶來更多的東西;依戀讓你捨不得丟,從商業廣告中可以看出一點端倪,影片中廣告傳達的訊息大概是穿上這件衣服,你就可以過得像廣告裡的度假生活,買了這台車,就一輩子到老有幸福快樂的家庭,捨不得丟的物品,常常代表過去一個重要的瞬間,一段回憶,一個人,將情感緩和下來,仔細一看,慾望讓你活在未來;依戀讓你活在過去,也有其他保留物品的原因,像是覺得浪費,大概是慾望與依戀的綜合體吧。

The reason for why have a lot of things is very simple because you can’t leave it, desires bring more things; attachment makes you store more things. The hint is in the commercial advertisements, the message in the ads is probably about wearing this dress you can live like the girls in their vacation. Buying this car, and you will have a happy life with family for a lifetime. One object often represents an important moment in the past, a memory, a person. Calm and have a closer look, desire makes you live in the future; attachment allows you to live in the past. Besides, there are other reasons for retaining items, like feeling doesn’t want to waste, probably a combination of desire and attachment.

穿上這件衣裳,就可以過著名模的度假生活? Wear this dress, you can live like on a holiday?

買了這台車,就可以幸福快樂一輩子? Buy this car you can have happiness forever?

捨棄物品有什麼好處
What are the benefits of abandoning things?

  • 多了空間:少了物品,多了空間,除了具體的空間外,心裡的空間也變大了,放下一些捨不得,房間和心理都更清爽了。
  • 多了時間:有越多東西就需要越多時間清理、維護和整理,當東西少了,時間自然多了。
  • 多了自由:思緒不被物件綁住的自由,不需要和別人比較而不將自己困住的自由,專心活在當下的自由。
  •  More space: fewer items, more space, in addition to the specific space, the space in my mind has also become larger. Let reluctance go, the room and mind are more refreshing.
  • More time: The more things you have, the more time you need to clean, maintain, and organize. When things are less, you will have more time automatically.
  • More freedom: the freedom that thoughts are not tied to objects and the freedom to be not trapped with comparing others, and the freedom to live in the present.

不是我在說,喜歡的兩個斜槓作家許維真和褚士瑩都說了

It’s not that I’m saying that. The two authors like Xu Weizhen(Meta) and Shiying Chu have mentioned it

6月22日參加了Meta許維真《自媒體百萬獲利法則:寫給完全素人的「3333網路獲利計畫」》的作者交流會,她在過去十年每年都有一個100的自我挑戰,在2015年斷捨離100天丟掉不需要的100個物品,為她帶來的是更看清楚自己,她也建議大家如果覺得生活過得不順,可以開始整理私人物品。褚士瑩在《1年計畫10年對話:預約10年後的自己,需要年年實踐與更新》第二章寫到;不論收納整理都是面對自己,重新思考物品與自己的關係,整理房間與行李都是在整理自己,改變習慣,就會改變人生。

On June 22nd, I attended Meta Xu Weizhen’s new book sharing meetup. She is the author of “The Law of Million Mobility from the Media: 3333 business plan for everyone.” She has self-goal of 100 every year for the past ten years. The achievement was to give away 100 items that were not needed in 100 days in 2015. That changed part of her life. She also suggested that if your life is not going well, you should start to organize your personal belongings, you might have an answer when you organize your own objects. The other writer I like Shiying Chu, In the second chapter of his book “One Dialogue in the Year, the Plan for Ten Years: I Need to Practice and Renew Every Year” mentioned that to organize a package or a room is organize myself. We can rethink the relationship between the item and the self. You are sorting yourself and changing your habits, you will change your life.

斷捨離慢慢來
To achieve your Danshari – “de-clutter.” on your pace

斷捨離創始者,山下英子小姐對於斷捨離有基本相關著作,對於斷捨離的好處以及執行都有許多琢磨,對於我來說;即使自己有意識到這個問題,要馬上把所有東西處理掉是不可能的,決定放下回憶需要時間,執行清掃的工作需要時間,那就給自己時間一步一步向前吧!打掃的內容不只是實體的物品,有許多心理面的東西也在同時運動著,把一箱雜物翻開時,就像是打開回憶的時光寶盒,只有準備好的時候,才可以有效執行。

文章開頭引言是出自於達賴喇嘛尊者的著作《How To Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life》《如何練習:通往有意義的人生》,書中對於每日練習的建議是;覺察自己對於自己對於飲食、服裝和住所的依戀,並練習對於旅人般的生活感到適應滿足。

七月初,年中,決定在2019年過完以前,放下依戀的物品,展望更好的生活,不管何時;都可以開始屬於自己的動禪,活在當下

Danshari – “de-clutter.” founder, Ms. Yamashita has written many books talking about the benefit and methods of de-clutter. This is kind o minimalism not just for physical things but for the mind. Although I realized the issue that I want to clean my stuffs, it is not possible to deal with everything immediately. It takes time to let go of the memories. It takes time to carry out the cleaning work. Then I  just gave me time to step forward! The content of the cleaning is not only physical items but also many things in the mental aspect. When you open a box of sundries, it is like opening a time box with memories. Only when you are ready, you can effectively execute them.

The quote at the beginning is from the Holiness Dalai Lama’s book “How to Practice: To a Meaningful Life,” in which the book’s advice for daily practice is; Notice your attachments to food, clothes, and shelter, and adapt monastic practices of contentment to a layperson’s life.

July is the middle of a year, I just decided to organize my attachment and finish it at the end of 2019. Welcome to join me and start your own Zen movement anytime and live at the moment.
