秋雨,毛毛雨,散文一样下着,下着光线,湿湿的光线。织布机织出来的一匹秋雨。而秋寒的灯光,湘绣一样,把窟窿绣在秋雨的布匹上。秋雨套在夜的身上,套在夜的里面做内衣,也套在夜的外面,作为披风。

一盏灯,一颗心,一杯禅,一杯茶,无限的寂寞与孤独,超越了就无限自在,就像一位老人。

秋雨夜眠

白居易

凉冷三秋夜,安闲一老翁。

卧迟灯灭后,睡美雨声中。

灰宿温瓶火,香添暖被笼。

晓晴寒未起,霜叶满阶红。

此诗为大和六年秋(832),白居易任河南尹时作。这时他已经60多岁,体衰多病,官务清闲,加上亲密诗友元稹已经谢世,心情寂寞。该诗多少反映诗人暮年政治上的心灰意懒、生活上孤寂闲散的状况。

全诗紧紧把握老翁秋雨夜安眠的特征,富有生活味道,实际上这时写面对生活历程最后的冷静淡定。

泥土笑话了多少人间垃圾,大自然消化了多少人的黑暗与邪恶。泥土希望维持自己的高尚与干净,自然希望坚持自己的青青微笑去绿化人间。

泥土愿意洗干净人的欲望,但人的很多不正当欲望太邪恶,泥土也深感辛苦,它没有受到人对它的尊重。

颂七处心偈

西余净端

七处征心心不遂,懵懂阿难不瞥地。

直饶征得见无心,也是泥中洗土块。

生命的本质就是要超越人间不自由的极限,去掉枷锁而得到真正的自在

水的书法决定了一个世界的格局。江河湖海,小溪池塘,凡水的点点滴滴,一笔一画,谁的偏旁部首,都爱建筑世界的施工,有水才有墨汁,有水才有原油。

春天为一粒行囊,打开一丝诗歌的出路,发芽。一粒山的种子,说出自己的枝枝叶叶偏旁部首一笔一画的书法组织,春天就生机了自己。

春行即兴

李华

宜阳城下草萋萋,涧水东流复向西。

芳树无人花自落,春山一路鸟空啼。

李华,唐代诗人。这首景物小诗,是诗人在春天经由宜阳时,对眼前景物有感,即兴抒发了国破山河在、花落鸟空啼的愁绪。但诗更展示了比坐着的感受更大的境界:世界无人时,它们有自己的完整。

春天永恒也不是一件好事情,晚春就要下班。

草深, 草很资深,才有春天所有的存款。

林茂,树林花枝招展,树叶成熟如毕业证。

花落,鲜花丢下自己花瓣之力,要捧出自己的一颗心。

絮飞,没有翅膀,飞起来的,属于心。

晚春

守璋

草深烟景重,林茂夕阳微。

不雨花犹落,无风絮自飞。

守璋,南宋诗僧。

当时宋高宗曾亲书此诗而无比快乐。全诗不着一字写心灵,却情趣深妙。

首二句诗意地将世事一切皆因果相应,纳入句中,不留半点痕迹。后两句以白描手法,表现暮春花落絮飞的自然现象,却不落窠臼,揭示了宇宙万物的必然:花落并不是因为雨打而产生,絮飞也不因为风吹而出现,二者皆属于宇宙万物的必然规律。本质如此,生命无常,生命自有安排,不独花木如此,晚春如此,人也同此理。

过去的淳朴乡村,女孩子的牛角辫就像春天的支流。纯洁而朴素,没有更多的花样,恰恰这样,单调称为经久耐看的经典。

一树春风

苏东坡

一树春风有两般,南枝向暖北枝寒;

现前一段西来意,一片西飞一片东。

这是一首非常有趣的禅诗,核心意思是物我合一的哲学命题。在禅师心中,物我一体,外相山河大地即内在山河大地,大千世界即心内世界,物我已经没有分别,已完全融合。好比一棵植物,同样接受空气、阳光、水分,每一片叶子有不同的生机,但彼此又能无碍共存于同一株身体上。

世界上的事物从来都不可能独立,都共用一个世界共同的身体。所以人在世上,善待别人就是善待自己;善待万物就是在善待我们自己的生命与生存。

在泥泞处,很深的脚印里,有清澈的水,水穿着脚印,如同穿着靴子。而天空,在这靴子里洗澡、玩耍,最好的兼职,用作天空的儿童乐园,这就是传说的天堂,一个脚印就可以作为无限大的世界。

终日看天

守珣

终日看天不举头,桃花烂漫始抬眸。

饶君便有遮天网,透得牢关即便休。

这是首开悟诗。作者是借灵云的桃花悟道诗而开悟。作者守珣(1064-1134),浙江安吉人,宋临济宗杨岐派禅师。佛鉴慧勤禅诗法嗣,亦深得圆悟克勤禅诗赏识,世称佛灯禅师。

修行中低头,低调,终日看天不举头,却获得了身心的自由自在,为何?天,即天道,即佛性,因为佛性无处不在,无时不睹,故修禅时不用举头即可见道。桃花烂漫始抬眸,佛性大显的时候抬头即可明心见道。

那些常青藤的句子肚子里面,常常有流水的地铁在穿越漫游,无数的神仙天使与说不出来的秘密乘客,在上面快乐漂流。一旦地铁流出常青藤,就脱下隧道的衣服,绽开为小溪流的宽银幕躺着的瀑布,一场电影在流动。

绝句

志南

古木阴中系短篷,杖藜扶我过桥东。

沾衣欲湿杏花雨,吹面不寒杨柳风。

志南、南宋初期诗僧,因为这首描写二月春景的诗让人记住。

二月早春,骷髅返春。枯树的骷髅,都知道要穿新衣服。田野知道要用花朵的新饭碗,吃新鲜饭。

这首诗,前两句写诗人的行踪,后两句写诗人眼中的春光。

前两句的妙处,在雨用笔身为只会,予人以清凉幽静的美感:古木、溪水、篷船、杖藜、小桥和无事的老僧组合在一起,演奏出神奇的力量,构成一幅浑然天成的游春图。杖藜扶我过桥东,诗意地表现了汉文明哲学思想里生命的最高境界,即我们心灵所崇尚的物我合一的佳境,即天人合一。

后两句给人感觉是清新悠然:小桥东边,杏花就像烟一样,杨柳就像线一样,细雨就像酥油一样,和风就像丝一样。那杏花烟雨,欲沾人衣而不湿,快意人生;那杨柳和风,吹在人脸上,感觉凉美而不觉寒冷。其实这只是自然菜拥有的力量。

一粒种子一粒歌,这粒歌能走多远?就看它心里行程安排。它首先要保持一粒冰的骨头,然后要拔出闪电作为发芽,然后金蝉脱壳,灵魂出窍,走得更远,把自己藏起来,藏在根、苗上。苗即自己的庙。

一粒种子能走多远?它走到过去,走回祖先身上,返回最先版本的自己。这样,一粒生命的灵性,在进行璀璨的旅行。

春歌

无门慧开

春有百花秋有月,夏有凉风冬有雪;

若无闲事挂心头,便是人间好时节。

 

这个作品,对于如何做人、处世、安身立命做了很好的启示。要单纯、要快乐、要自由、不要压力太大,增强心理素质,克服成长过程中不必要的恐惧因素。

圆满的人生,在每一个阶段,都有自己值得肯定的足迹。所谓圆满,都属于遗憾的艺术。每一个人,在自己的不同阶段,都会有自己的遗憾,不要紧,只要不是致命的遗憾,下一个人生阶段还来得及圆满、圆梦。

一杯酒里面,挤满多少感叹号,那些感叹号被喝酒的人喝进肚子里以后,就会从嘴里爬出来,重新发芽,发出自己的声音。

很多人的心情都一样,心情就像同一种笔画,在不同的人身上,写下相同的感受。

看山,看水,山水给人的情感,其实为人自己的情感。只不过,人从山水里面,把自己的感慨取回来,就像从邮局取回自己的包裹。

同一个山水,杜牧感叹自己的心情,与李白的心情一样。

念昔游三首(其三)

杜牧

李白题诗水西寺,古木回岩楼阁风。

半醒半醉游三日,红白花开山雨中。

 

“水西寺”即天宫水西寺,是宣州泾县水西山中很有名的一座寺院。李白曾游到此,并题有《游水西简郑明府》一诗。李白诗中这么写:“清湍鸣回溪,绿竹绕飞阁;凉风日潇洒,幽客时憩泊”,写了这一山寺佳境。

蒙蒙雨雾,山花盛开,红白相间,幽香扑鼻;似醉若醒的诗人,漫步在这一带有浓烈自然野趣的景色中,显得陶然自得,心灵的到安慰。

很多人喜欢小巷子,喜欢那里的宁静,那样古老的城市建筑,有着古典之美。实际上,是时光成就了这样的安静与美丽,也是时光雕刻了人间的怀念与伤感。

《乌衣巷》是经典水墨,经典木刻,是一支怀念的歌谣,那样淡淡的,温馨的禅意,成为了人们心灵的燕子,轻轻飞翔。

乌衣巷

刘禹锡

朱雀桥边野草生,乌衣巷口夕阳斜。

旧时王谢堂前燕,飞入寻常百姓家。

 

乌衣巷在今南京市东南,秦淮河南岸。东晋时王导、谢安等豪门世族就居住在这里。朱雀桥在乌衣巷附近,是当时的交通要道。写其今日衰败景象,写昔日繁荣,形成强烈的对照。

从前的燕子飞来,总是在王、谢等豪门世族宽敞的宅子里筑巢。如今旧世族的楼台亭阁荡然无存,燕子也只能住在寻常百姓家了。

新华看世界,只为怀孕正果。鲜花的目光,都穿上香气。

寺院的春天,让游人得到沐浴。人间在寺院里的到清洗。寺院就像洗衣机,把人间洗干净。

 

开善寺

阴铿

鹫岭春光遍,王城野望通。

登临情不极,萧散趣无穷。

莺随入户树,花逐下山风。

栋里归云白,窗外落晖红。

名石何年卧,枯树几春空?

淹留惜未及,幽桂在芳丛。

 

 

这首诗以工笔写景,丛“登临情不及”说起,以“淹留惜未及”结尾,中间部分景色描写,表现对大自然风光的迷恋。

前四句着眼钟山全景,写开善寺春光遍野,诗人游兴盎然。鹫岭即灵鹫山,本为中印佛教圣地,如来曾在此讲经,因开善寺亦为佛门禅院,所以此处借指钟山。野山野水,自然的野性,才是尊重它们的生命。

后四句是全诗的精华部分,意象精妙,用词洗炼,是诗歌史上传诵的写景名句。

“淹留惜未及,幽桂在芳丛”借用《淮南小山 招隐士》中的“桂树丛生兮山之幽”“攀援桂枝兮聊淹留”“王孙兮归来,山中兮不可久留”等句,表达不能久留于此,辜负美景,深以为憾。

那些春天,早在冬天的时候,就用空荡荡的寂寞,守住了寒冷的阵地,在枯枝上,在田野上,在枯草上,寂寞的叽叽喳喳喊了很长的时间,终于喊来了春天,春天说出声音来,说出心灵来,说出颜色来,说出新鲜的衣服来。

种子纷纷往坑里跳,埋没自己,让自己隐没于黑暗中,然后自己开门,让自己内部的客人于世界,出来看看。
终日寻春

无尽藏比丘尼

终日寻春不见春,芒鞋踏破岭头云。

归来偶把梅花嗅,春在枝头已十分。
我们寻找人生的价值以及幸福,修行者求道,都好比寻找春天。

寻找春天的人,从清晨找到夜晚,走遍千山万水,磨破鞋底,仍然看不见春天的踪影。

心灰意懒,回到家中,庭院中早开的寒梅,清香从花朵身上泼水一样泼出来,忍不住深深地一吸,原来春天早就悄悄地绽开在寒梅枝上了。

幸福无所不在,心的大道无所不在,处处可以体会,甚至吃饭、睡觉、走路、行进之间都有道的存在,在启示世人,不要错过这些伟大的开启与暗示。

The firefly and SERENITY

The firefly and SERENITY

Derrial Book

看宁静号的时候,有些情景比较有趣,牧师作为牧师,居然对枪、杀手等非常熟悉,尤其在中枪之后,被送到联盟要求救治被拒后,拿出身份卡,联盟立即就开始救助,并且给宁静号上所有人都治疗并释放了。这是有多高的地位的人才能享有的待遇。在豆瓣小组里面翻了一圈,貌似没有找到。google了一圈,总算找到一些蛛丝马迹。

google上推荐去看Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale,这个漫画里面似乎有介绍,可惜要求美刀去买,而且不知道猴年马月才能到(猴年马月其实再过一个月就到了)。继续看看大家的评论,终于找到了。

 

Shepherd Book was abused as a boy, and lived on the street for a while. He wasn’t born under the name Shepherd Book, BTW. He joined up with the independence movement, and volunteered to be a spy on the Alliance. He was an officer until he led a brilliant defeat, after which he was discharged. He later lived in a monastery for a time, and became the preacher we all know:-)

 

TL;DR: Book’s official status within the Alliance (and therefore on his ident chip) was that of a retired Alliance commander. This would result in VIP treatment at most Alliance facilities.


I’ll outline his entire known history in the spoiler tags below. Most of this is outlined in the comic “The Shepherd’s Tale“, which is essentially Book reflecting back on his life while dying at Haven.

Early Life

Originally named Henry Evans, the man we know as Derrial Book was born on a border planet to an abusive father. At the age of ten, he ran away from home and became adept at survival on the streets. He eventually garnered some reputation as a thief & criminal, but ended up joining the growing Independence Movement.

Life as a Browncoat

In the four years before his Alliance assignment, Evans quickly became known for his vicious skills in combat – easily (and brutally) taking down entire squads of Alliance soldiers during missions. When the Browncoats began looking for a long-term operative who could infiltrate the Alliance military as a double agent, Evans volunteered. He needed a new identity, so he murdered a random citizen named Derrial Book and took that name as his own.

Life in the Alliance

Once in the Alliance, Book began a “meteoric” rise through the ranks. He was seen as totally committed to the cause and earned a reputation for using savage tactics against the Browncoats, quickly becoming known as a master interrogator. Because of his rising rank & influence, Book found himself increasingly able to both damage the Alliance plans as well as cover up losses or information leaks. He quickly became a vital asset for the Browncoats, but also one of their most guarded secrets.

Retirement

Book eventually found himself in command (or perhaps XO) of the IAV Cortez, an Alliance cruiser which oversaw an operation intended to end the Unification War in a single stroke. Book himself was in charge of the operation, which involved committing massive resources into striking multiple targets at once. Due to Book’s involvement, however, the operation was actually a huge ambush. Numerous forces were lost, including the total destruction of the IAV Alexander and all 4000 crew. Considered one of the largest defeats in Alliance history, the entire operation was swept under the rug and Derrial Book was quietly discharged from Alliance service.

Life at the Abbey

With the Independent Movement crushed soon after, Book wasn’t sure what to do with himself. He wandered the outer territories, weary of his life and drowning his sorrows in alcohol. At one point, he finds himself at a church and comes to see religion as a way to atone for the many people he had killed throughout his life. It apparently worked, as he eventually ended up at theSouthdown Abbey on Persephone. Book finally found peace tending the Abbey’s garden, but knew he couldn’t stay there indefinitely.

Life on Serenity

After an unknown amount of time at the Abbey (but presumably several years), Book decided to leave and get back out into the galaxy. The Abbey had access to the Cortex, and Book had tired of watching others suffer along the rim. He announced his intention to carry the Lord’s message out to others, and this leads us directly to his introduction in S01E01 “Serenity”.

As for your specific question, his ident chip reflected his official status with the Alliance – a retired Captain or Commander. Especially in a medical situation like that, a status like that would require any Alliance officer to render immediate assistance.

Henry Evans had a troubled childhood and was a criminal for a time before enlisting with the independence movement. As a member of The Independence he volunteered to spy on The Alliance. He killed a man named Derrial Book assumed his identity to enlisted in the Alliance Military. While still working as a spy for The Independence he quickly worked up the Alliance ranks to become a prominent officer. At a key point during the war he intentionally lost a major battle dealing a crushing blow to the alliance and leading to him being discharged. This loss was so crushing that the alliance made a point to wipe all record of it out. Meaning on paper shepherd Book is nothing but a retired prominent Alliance officer. After being discharged he “found god in a bowl of soup” while at a soup kitchen and decided to join an Abby. He eventually left and ended up boarding Serenity.

Biography
To the crew of Serenity, Derrial Book’s past was a mystery. He indicated early on that he was a shepherd who had been living in theSouthdown Abbey and that he never married.[1] In truth, “Derrial” was not even the shepherd’s real name, but rather the name of a man he had killed.

Book, whose birth name was Henry Evans, lived as a young boy in dread of his highly abusive father. He would listen to music to take himself to a peaceful place in his mind, only to be beaten. He finally chose to leave home, but after ten years had merely established himself as a successful thief, adept at avoiding law enforcement. He was then recruited by the Independence Movement, a representative of which having been impressed at his excellent combat potential. In four years he honed his fighting skills, easily defeating heavily-armed federal agents singlehandedly. Evans was not known among his Independence peers to attend their meetings, but he showed up for one and there he volunteered to take part in a highly-sensitive mole operation. Since the Independence organizers had learned that the Alliancewas creating warships, they plotted to plant a long-term mole to rise through the ranks of the Alliance and subvert them at every turn. Henry’s left eye was extracted and replaced with a biorobotic camera and transmitter, which would provide excellent surveillance. To join the Alliance, he needed a new identity. So he lured an unsuspecting young man named Derrial Book into an alley, murdered him with a garrote, and took on this name permanently.

In four short years, he orchestrated a “meteoric” rise through the Alliance ranks and was selected for the officer corps from the law enforcement on Jiangyin. He utilized brutal beatings on captured Independence members—men and women alike—which impressed his superiors. After six years, he was an officer aboard the I.A.V. Cortez, where he directed the final movement of an Alliance operation to ambush Independence transports on a massive scale: six installations on different planets and at least one space-borne transport convoy were raided by Alliance forces at the same moment, but each was ambushed. It was the “single greatest disaster in Alliance history”. The most prominent loss was the destruction of the I.A.V. Alexander and the loss of all 4,000 souls aboard; elsewhere, about 300 soldiers were captured. Book was immediately discharged without trial and thrown into an escape vessel in disgrace.

He lived as a derelict for six years after until he experienced an epiphany about his place in the universe while staring into a bowl of chicken soup. He was suddenly seized with purpose, and joined the Southdown Abbeywhere he remained for a decade, until he finally chose to leave the abbey—on good terms and with encouragement—and become a missionary. He then joined the crew of Serenity.

Book frequently made references to Christian theology and consulted and quoted the Bible. But Book later expressed concern that he was being corrupted by living on Serenity and he left the ship[5] and moved to the planet Haven. There he was killed by an Alliance soldier sent to destroy Haven after Serenity managed to shake an Alliance assassin known only as “the Operative”. However, he was not a passive figure in the events leading up to his death; he defended Haven and shot down the A.V.-Sparrow that attacked the settlement.After taking down the ship, Mal told Book that he did the right thing, to which Book replied, “Coming from you, that means almost nothing.”

“I don’t care what you believe. Just believe it!”~ Book’s dying words to Mal

serentiyFireFly  serenity-summer_00354141

最近总算追完了《firefly》这部美剧,然后又看了《Serenity》这部电影,算是交代了电视剧的结局。

Take my love
Take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care,I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me

Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me

There’s no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can’t take the sky from me

这部电视剧以这首歌开始,体现了电视剧的基本内容:

即使夺走了我的爱和我的土地,让我无处可栖,但是我不怕,我向往自由,你无法夺走我的天空。

听到对白里面英语里面掺杂着我也听不懂的中国话,总感觉怪怪的。后来才知道导演比较喜欢中国,认为未来是中国的天下,剧中未来的世界,汉语和英语是通行的两种官方语言。话说回来,现在很多人说话,汉语里面插着不少英语单词,给老外也许也是怪怪的感觉。

這戲的偉大,在於它很短,就是被腰砍了,才播出11集(後來的dvd,出到14集),但不給人「爛尾」之感,而接續的電影版大結局serenity(衝出寧靜號),更是壯烈到驚人的地步,這麼艘破船,一船見錢眼開的爛傭兵,到最後,真是以命相博,就為了個,不知從哪撿來的,怪里怪氣的小屁孩。

這群人,最終不但揭漏了聯邦的無恥祕密,其代價更是無比昂貴,只因他們基本上是下定決心,命不要了,集體立志犧牲生命……。

至此,firefly 終於成就了一個影史的特例,一部被砍的小美劇,竟然能衍生出 serenity 這樣的電影鉅作,科幻鉅作,太空史詩鉅作,類型電影鉅作。它,不但成為影史特例之一,不但是影迷心中的cult,它,更變成影迷心目中的孤絕象徵。

片中,mal 帶領著寧靜號,抵抗聯邦。

戲外,我們這些影迷,也跟該死的fox電視台抵抗呢。

你把我們的影集砍了,我們用dvd的銷量,還有用電影版的賣座,證明你們的無知和罪惡!

(Joss Whedon:「這部電影本不該存在的」,他繼續說:「遭停播的電視劇,沒有資格拍成電影,除非製片、演員和影迷,能相信……這部電影,意義空前。」)

电影的结局以mal和river的对话,讲述了他和Serenity的关系,

You know what the first rule of flying is?

well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I’m about tot say.

Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sue as the turn of the worlds.

Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down, tells you she’s hurting before she keels.

Makes her a home.
