Volunteer (義工的祈禱)


主,願你時常提點我,別要期待他們的回報。縱是一個感激的眼神、一聲舒適的嘆息、一剎的微笑,都絕非當然:要記得他們都在痛苦裏。

主,願你時常阻止我,對制度心存怨憤。對我們,這是跟隨你的榜樣去服務人;對很多的他們,這只是一份餬口的工作,且是一份很大壓力、很長時間的工作。

主,願你時常安慰我,人間的不幸裏,奇蹟的種子到處滿播;旅程雖是短暫,你卻永恆在彼岸。

主,願你時常鼓勵我,請別讓我灰心沮喪:退潮後岸上的海星雖多,每次可以送回大海的只有一顆。

主,虛榮感總是伺機蠶食我,成就感總在暗裏嘲弄我。願我左手不知右手在做什麼,願我別沾沾自喜如饒舌的了哥,也願我默默無聞甘於勞動與繁瑣。

道士 說...

You know the World made by Lord is full of chaos and despair, yet you look to Him for guidance. We pull those politicians who ruin our society, but not pray for their mercy.

You understand the pressure and long hours of those who 'serve to survive', you choose to serve. Despite intentions you're very much the same as others in the bureaucraZy of men. Try know not hatred nor anger, but your power to rebel the system. Humans doesn't 'survive to serve'.

Journey is more precious than the outcome. I look for comfort in those who sincerely care, but not for the comfort in those who're supposing care. Miracles bend rules of nature, doesn't bend what you believe in. Do you acquire Satan's care, attention and miracles?

The tide give lifes to many and take lifes from many, accept what you can't change. Once in my lowest point in life, a friend ask me, why not just see how long does your bad luck streak goes?? I run cause I can and cause I wanna,I don't care if other's like me to or not, I live for myself, not for others. Even it's for others, it's those others that I care.

Silence makes you act like a philosopher? but it won't make you more wise. the Lammas in Tibet, Socrates, all seek for virtue within conversations. If you don't take pride in what you do, don't do it. I take pride in my boredom, therefore writing this, making me closer to a humanist.
