《水豚讀《論語》》用新角度重讀《論語》,與水豚一起坦然自在面對人生

Written 誠品香港

還記得中學時每次翻開中文書,看到一大堆無法理解的文言文時,那種無助和崩潰的心情嗎?那時讀《論語》好像只是為了考試,或在作文時炫耀一下自己的中國文學知識,長大後才發現《論語》竟然能成為解決人生問題的指南。
 
誰說古時的道理不合時宜?作者引經據典,把古時的人生觀活用在現今社會中!誰說《論語》中的故事一定沉悶無趣?此書以可愛的水豚和生動有趣的文字訴說《論語》中的故事,帶你看破厭世人生,走出複雜的人際關係和日常生活中的小憂鬱。為什麼我們要聽孔子的話?因為他所經歷的慘事比大多數人還要多,但他也撐過來了!
 
這本書讀起來很簡單易明,因為有作者的貼地「超譯」和可愛療癒的水豚照片,為大家精選幾個篇章,一起來看看孔子給我們的啟示吧!
 


作者簡介:曾暐傑
 
政大中文系博士,現任師大國文系助理教授。研究道德哲學但對道德過敏,覺得道德魔人比無道德者更危險。討厭溫馨勵志幹話小語——覺得與其喝心靈雞湯不如面對自己去泡湯。擅長沉浸式經典課程,在思辨中玩出經典的當代意義。覺得閱讀經典關鍵是讓自己超有感,才能讓生活充滿暢快感。
 
在絕命終結站前淡定喝茶,才能看見活
 

—在絕境之中我們已經失去一切,不能再失去自己。
 
【在陳絕糧,從者病,莫能興。子路慍見曰:「君子亦有窮乎?」子曰:「君子固窮,小人窮斯濫矣。」(〈衛靈公〉)】
 
故事發生在孔子帶著學生從陳國流浪到蔡國的時候,中途遇上斷糧,大家都餓得走不動。
 
作者「超譯」:這時候,孔子最有個性的學生子路,覺得我們這樣死心踏地跟著你,是因為相信你滿腹的理想能夠改變這個世界,結果居然讓我們淪落到這樣的境地,忍不住酸孔子說:「科科,啊老師這樣素養高尚的道德導師也會有這樣窮途末路、一籌莫展的時候喔?」孔子淡定地看了子路一眼說:「有素養的人就算遇到了困境,也不會放棄原則;不像有些人一遇到困境,就隨便開地圖砲亂發脾氣自暴自棄。」
 
就算是好人、是君子,也會有遇上壞事連連,走到窮途末路的時候,有人會選擇放棄,有人仍會堅守原則,其實冷靜下來想想,與其遇上絕境就自暴自棄,不如靠自己的力量去改寫人生的劇本。
 
黑粉也是粉:被黑特,我驕
 

—如果所有的人都喜歡你……你不是遇到詐騙集團,就是不小心加入邪教。
 
【子貢問曰:「鄉人皆好之,何如?」子曰:「未可也。」「鄉人皆惡之,何如?」子曰:「未可也。不如鄉人之善者好之,其不善者惡之。」(〈子路〉)】
 
作者「超譯」:子貢問老師說:「如果有一個人,大家都喜歡,這個人怎麼樣?」孔子想了想說:「可能不太OK!」「那如果有一個人大家都討厭他,這個人怎麼樣?」子貢急著又接著發問。孔子這次篤定地說:「這樣的人可能也有問題。真正有素養的人,應該會讓好人喜歡,壞人討厭,這才是值得尊敬的人。」
 
孔子的意思是千萬別為了令所有人都喜歡你而活得虛偽,或是卑躬屈膝地去討好每一個人。如果你選擇當一個君子,那麼小人就會討厭你,這是必然的定律,因為人會討厭與自己立場相反的人。所以如果被人討厭了也不要緊,只是立場不同或合不來,起碼你沒有虛偽地去取悅他們啊!
 
不要讓自己成為第一名的業務aka那個渣男/不負責任的女
 

—人不只有一種活法—但至少不要活得像個瓶子。
 
【子曰:「君子不器。」(〈為政〉)】
 
作者「超譯」:孔子說:「有素養的人不能像是一個瓶子—只有用來裝水一個用途。」
 
生活在現今社會,我們都有多重身份,你可以是一間公司的職員,但同時亦為人父母,是別人的兒女或伴侶,還有很多其他的身份,所以我們不能成為一個定型的人,只有一個用途。在工作時你可以是一個堅強獨立的巨人,但回到家你可以是一個小鳥依人,千萬別只做一個很會裝錢的瓶子喔!
 
為什麼突然就不愛了
 

【愛之欲其生,惡之欲其死。既欲其生,又欲其死,是惑也。「誠不以富,亦祗以異」。(〈顏淵〉)】
 
作者「超譯」:愛一個人的時候,我們恨不得永遠和他在一起,恨一個人的時候我們又希望他立刻消失在這個世界上。但很奇怪的是:我們面對的是同一個人,既希望他活著又希望他死掉,這肯定是腦袋有什麼問題吧!而且啊,這樣既愛又恨的情感,只會讓別人覺得我們很奇怪,把我們視為怪咖,一點好處都沒有。
 
愛就是這麼變幻莫測,明明熱戀時他是一個完美情人,不再愛時對方就會變得這麼令人討厭,怎樣看都不順眼,但變的不是對方,而是你的心。在感情要結束時,試著不要去恨對方,放下對他的偏見,不愛就不愛了,也不需貶低對方啊!
 
別讓自己比孤獨更孤獨:找不到熱情就去玩吧


【「飽食終日,無所用心,難矣哉!不有博弈者乎,為之猶賢乎已。」(〈陽貨〉)】
 
作者「超譯」:孔子用尷尬又不失溫度的語氣勸那些無所事事、遊手好閒的人:「整天只會吃飯睡覺,對什麼事情都沒有興趣,也不把任何工作放在心上,這樣想要有什麼作為是不可能的!你們這樣的態度,就算我想要跟你們說些什麼也說不上來啊!如果真的什麼都不想做,不是還有象棋、西洋棋還是桌遊什麼的可以玩嗎?總比現在這樣什麼都不做好啊!」
 
這篇作者提出了一個現代人的通病,不知道大家有沒有發覺最近愈多愈多手機遊戲標榜「放置」,就是放著不管,遊戲會自己玩,LV會自己升的那一種,難道現代人真的懶得連遊戲不想自己努力去玩嗎?如果你對任何事情都提不起勁,連遊戲也不想玩的話,那真的要好好想一想人生到底還剩下什麼。
