为“马云”辩护

早上起来看微信,天哪,还不断地在有更新,不知道会要持续到什么时候。看看两天的微信:
“…马云的话励志却有些残酷…”
“…回想起马云的话励志却有些残酷…”
“…美国投资人眼中的阿里和Jack Ma..”
“…代替马云在华尔街敲钟的八个普通人是谁?…”
“跳槽穷半年,改行穷三年。” ( 旁边一幅马云的黑白照片)
“马云经典…马云成为首富后留下的话, 句句触动我们心灵…”
还有一个,我认为最经典的:
“马云好像和我有点像”
……
…..
感觉,要是什么有名人物去世了,也差不多看到像上面的这些吧?!不知道的人,还以为“马云出什么事了呢!他还健在吧?” 哈哈哈

我想说,底线是:人家马云成为首富了,跟我没啥关系;最多展现出我们对“物质成功”和名誉”的渴望,和嫉妒。就没有人鼓励祝福一下马云吗:现在有条件真的为社会做一些事情,希望你和阿里在未来更加innovate, reinvent and change Chinese society for the better.

Some descriptive sketches of difference between before Faith and After Faith

From:
There are many ways lead to the Truth
To:
Only one way, that’ is faith through J.C. lead to the Truth.

From a seeker to a learner

From there are some people some thing out of the “My God” to every thing and every one ( yes, not just you who are self identified as C ) is in him ( under His control ) — whether or not one believes so is another question .

From someone is perfect to every single one is sinful.

From I do what I do is in order to achieve a Good To because I am already be saved and forgiven, I do what I do.

From:
there are various religions in the world that they are competing each other and we don’t quiet know which one is true ( but there should be only one is true )
To:
Faith is not a religion / true faith is not based on religion / God has no religion. Religion is a human activity, and since it is a human activity, All the religion activities( rituals, languages, lectures, information exchanges ) have its fated flaws/limitations; they are no more or less flawed/limited than any other human activities ( science, business…philosophy…logic…politics…etc ).

Arts(visual, audio, literature) at times are far better means to reveal some aspects of the Truth.

Become externally determined optimist because sprout from Faith, always flow out goodness.

Some Baiscs

0th: you have to have meaning and value, which only a True Faith can provide.

1st: for every text/words/sentences, be careful to distinguish between facts and opinions; and for every text/words/sentences, be aware of its denotation and connotation and their functions.

2nd:self recursion is a very interesting and permeated phenomena than a logic paradox like the “dictionary paradox”.

Examples: there is a book titled “What money can’t buy”, but you first need money to buy this book if you want to know it. I often want to use Google to help me understand how to get around on the internet and I certainly used Google to know how to solve a particular problem when I was installing an Operating System for my computer, but I realized that you first need a computer and internet to know ‘how-to’s of computer and internet; people developed software to teach “how to develop software”.

Extra point if you get it: the “chicken and egg” question is meaningless if you are sure both of them are end up on your dinner table anyway.

Life’s principles.

It was copied from a book.

• Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you.

• In all things, strive to cause no harm.

• Treat your fellow human beings, your fellow living things, and the world in general with love, honesty, faithfulness, and respect.

• Do not overlook evil or shrink from administering justice, but always be ready to forgive wrongdoing freely admitted and honestly regretted.

• Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.

• Always seek to be learning something new.

• Test all things; always check your ideas against the facts, and be ready to discard even a cherished belief if it does not conform to them.

• Never seek to censor or cut yourself off from dissent; always respect the right of others to disagree with you.

• Form independent opinions on the basis of your own reason and experience; do not allow yourself to be led blindly by others.

• Question everything.

• Enjoy your own sex life (so long as it damages nobody else) and leave others to enjoy theirs in private whatever their inclinations, which are none of your business.

• Do not discriminate or oppress on the basis of sex, race or (as far as possible) species.

• Do not indoctrinate your children. Teach them how to think for themselves, how to evaluate evidence, and how to disagree with you.

• Value the future on a timescale longer than your own.
