The Meaning of Life

电影《七十七天》并没有曲折离奇的故事情节,在大片林立的今天,上座率和排片率都一般。然而,它和《Tuesday with Morrie》一样,引起了我对于人生意义的思考,仅仅为这个原因,我觉得已经值回票价了。
 
The movie “Seventy-seven days” deserves a fair go. It’s not one of those big hits, and the story itself is not very exciting, however, it can inspire you to think about the meanings of life. For that alone, I think it’s enough to make it a good movie.
 
电影讲述的是关于一个野外探险家在77天内孤身穿越羌塘无人区的真实故事。到底是什么原因让他不惜克服重重困难,甘愿冒着生命危险也要进行这次冒险?他追求的或是寻找的什么?说真的,我并非探险爱好者,并不能对这一问题做出百分之百肯定的答复。
 
The movie tells a true story about an explorer’s attempt to cross Jiangtang—A No Man’s Island where is full of various, unexpected dangers. What exactly has led an explorer to risk so much, even his life to pursue for? I am not an explorer, and I can’t say I’m 100 percent sure of the answer about this question.
 
在电影里,我可以清楚地在他的眼里看到不容动摇的决心,那是种几近疯狂的决绝。我深深为之动容,却仍然不能十分理解他的行为。
 
In the movie, I could see the iron determination, the desperate urge in the character’s eyes, and I was deeply touched. Still I didn’t fully understand.
 
是为了自由吗?可自由在哪里?在这次探险中,他必须要严格按行程表执行。每天要吃多少口食物,要骑行多少公里都经过周密的计算记入行程,不容半点有失。在日常生活中,小小的失误不会有什么严重的后果,然而在野外探险中,任何失误都有可能是致命的。所谓自由到底是什么?
 
Freedom? During this trip, the explorer had to live by an extreme, highly structured schedule. How much food he could intake, how many miles he should ride each day were precisely calculated and must-be followed strictly. Normal life allows for minor mistakes, however here, any mistake could be fatal. So, what does Freedom mean here?
 
然而有一幕似乎给出了我们答案。
A scene in the movie might give you the answer.
 
那么一刻,地面的盐湖泛着粼粼波光,与天地完美融于一体,整个世界只剩下深深浅浅的白色与蓝色。在这个水晶般纯净的世界,只有这个男人和他的自行车。
 
There is a place where the saline lake blends naturally together with the skyline, the whole world is left nothing but the shades of white and blue. And a man with his bike is in the middle of this crystal pure and hushed world.
 
那一刻,我的呼吸似乎都静止了,隔着大银幕,我莫名的似乎同里面的那个世界产生了联系。外面世界的一切纷扰被隔绝在外,我几乎能听见大自然的心跳。银幕里那个男人的存在被无限放大了。如果,真的有那么一刻,可以挣脱所有的束缚,摆脱俗世的所有烦恼,真正体会自由的滋味,我想就是此时此刻了。
 
 
At that moment, I felt sort of connected with that world in big screen. The outside hustle and bustle was totally shut out, I could almost hear the heartbeat of human nature and could almost feel the pulse of the earth. The existence of the explorer was multiply magnified. I believe, if there is a moment for the explorer to break free from all the attachments, all the worldly troubles and worries, if there is a moment that he could feel totally free, that must be.
 
也许生活在现代都市里,总有些时候我们会感觉如同困兽,日复一日,为了工作,家庭,金钱,为了支付按揭贷款,或为了买辆新车而辛苦奔波,却没有时间也没有精力去照顾我们内心真正的渴求,去认真思考:“活着,究竟是为了什么?” 我们都需要这么一刻,去和内心深处的自己对话,去自由放飞自己的灵魂与心灵。当然,并不一定要户外探险,我们要自己寻找适合自己的方式。
 
Perhaps living in modern society, there are moments we all feel kind of trapped, like caged animals. Just like Morris said, we’re so wrapped up with egotistical things, career, family, having enough money, paying the mortgage, getting a new car---we’re involved in trillions of little acts to keep going. And we all need a moment like that to have a talk with our inner side and figure it out: What is the meaning of life?
 
遗憾的事,有的人为了这一刻不惜一切代价,而大部分的人,如同你我,也许只是随波逐流,得过且过罢了。
 
The difference is that someone would take everything to find that moment, and most of us just accept as the life it is and see what the tide would take us.
