快樂基因

來墨西哥前,有一個電影會, 當中有2位墨西哥人在座分享,說是在經歷不同的ups and downs,Mexicans are happy people.

來到這裏, 感覺到當中的生活/人生哲學.

參加了一個幫未來小學老師改善他們英文對話技巧的義工活動.
在準備時, 一個組員說,在個人簡介的問題中, 要問他們: “What’s your goal in life?”
組員叫Daniel, 讀的是Commercial Law, 是天之驕子的學科. 他說, 這是他教授考驗學生的方法,在一大堆理論後, 總會問一些看似”無厘頭”,但卻比之前學術問題更難答的問題, 而”What’s your goal in life?” is one of such.

他也希望問我們的學生這個問題, know why they are here such that they can get most out of the workshop.
And then I asked him what his goal in life is.

He laughed with a blush.
“Well, I want to do something good to the society and make it a better place to live. hmmm, and be happy.”

And other group mate, Carlos, pondered for a while, and said, he wanted to enter the finance industry and earned money. “of course, to be happy about everything in life.”

然後,在workshop, 一個學生答, :” To be happy at each moment is my life goal. My father used to teach me that, there is only goal in every person’s life— that’s to be happy. No matter under what conditions.”

簡單的人生目標, 開心就好. 驟耳一聽, 簡單得叫人乍舌, 開心/ 快樂/幸福? 是不是太享樂主義? 可是再想想, 簡單, 但卻總結了人生.

追名逐利的背後, 最後想要的是開心/ 快樂/幸福; 營營役役, 為口奔馳, 到最後, 想要的是開心/ 快樂/幸福.

可是很多時, 我們都忘了初衷, 以致在營役的人生中忙,茫,惘,亡….

來墨國交流以療情傷的Jacintha 說了一句很簡單的話, “Mexico does have a subtle positive effect on people”.

是的, 墨西哥人就有那麼一種的快樂基因, 叫人感到當中閃爍的人性.

一個充滿動盪和災難的環境裡,人仍能擁抱對美好社會的盼望,並拿出無比的勇氣去實踐,即使過程中也有錯失的時候。
