路西法,很多人把祂跟魔鬼、撒旦畫上等號,但正確說來祂應該是「墮落天使」,雖然墮落,但祂也曾經是天使,而且是一神之下、萬人之上的存在,是造物者最引以為傲的創造,也是眾天使之首。這樣的存在,曾經是眾神的統領,但距離墮落成魔鬼,也只有一線之隔!

Lucifer, many people equate him with the devil and Satan, but to be correct, he should be a "fallen angel". Although he has fallen, he was once an angel, and he was only under one God and above all people. He was the proudest creation of the creator and the head of all the angels. Such an existence used to be the leader of the gods, but there is only a thin line between the degenerate into a devil!

 

萬物的起源都是善的。據說一切都源自於光明,就像在混沌的狀態中開了一竅,有了洞就有了光。而閃亮的大天使,帶來的是和煦的溫暖,給予世間的人們幸福與溫暖。祂是最特別的存在,是凡人達不到的美。陽光具有孕育萬物的能力,萬物受到陽光的滋潤而生長、繁衍,始有今日的花花世界。這一切都源自宇宙所恩賜的真善美。

The origin of all things is good. It is said that everything comes from light, just like opening a hole in the state of chaos, there is light when there is a hole. The Archangel brought genial warmth and gave happiness to people in the world. He is the most special existence, a beauty that mortals cannot reach. Sunlight can nurture all things, and all things grow and multiply under the nourishment of sunlight, and thus create today's wonderful world. All this stems from the truth, goodness and beauty bestowed by the universe.

 

然而,如此精彩的世界終究還是得依靠人類來完成。我們應該肯定自己的努力,尤其是先人的努力,無論普羅米修斯是否盜天取火,人類以聰明才智掌握了世界,藉由靈活的雙手發明各種工具,不但改善了生活,同時也開始擁有文明,以至今日的非凡成就。身為萬物之靈的我們,擁有權力去締造一個屬於人類的世界,並找尋到分工的方法,累積並創造更多的能量,打造幸福美好的理想國度。

However, such a wonderful world still has to rely on humans to complete it. We should affirm our own efforts, especially the efforts of our ancestors. No matter whether Prometheus stole fire from heaven or not, human beings have mastered the world with their ingenuity. We have invented various tools with our flexible hands, which not only improved our lives, but also began to have civilization, which has made extraordinary achievements today. As the intelligent part of the universe, we have the power to create a world that belongs to human beings, and find a way to divide labor, accumulate and create more energy, and establish a happy and beautiful ideal country.

 

但換個角度思考:擁有如此巨大的權力,真的是一件好事嗎?我們依照想像去建構、甚至改造這個世界;現代人汲汲營營,每天忙碌著創造一切,而忘卻了世界單純的美好。路西法的例子讓我們引以為戒:權力越大,你的內心也更加自滿;站得越高,跌落下來反而傷得更重。我們把世界塑造成自己想要的樣子,但生活真的更美好了嗎?如果沒有,到頭來終究白忙一場?人類似乎擁有太多權利,並且濫用這個權力,而遺忘了讓自己更幸福、讓世界更美好的初衷。

But think about it another way: is it really a good thing to have so much power? We construct and even transform the world according to our imagination; modern people are busy creating everything every day and forget the simple beauty of the world. Lucifer's example reminds us that the greater the power, the prouder you are in your heart; the higher the standing, the easier it is to fall. We shaped the world the way we want, but is life better? If not, will it be a waste of time in the end? Humans seem to have too much power and abuse this power, forgetting the original purpose of making themselves happier and the world a better place.

 

人類實在太聰明了,聰明到以為自己是萬能的。面對龐大的自然之力,或是命運的齒輪運轉時,人類毫無抵抗能力。聽起來好像是命定,或者是某種宿命論,但實際上人類能掌握的部分卻是有限的。權勢的確很有用,當你擁有它,縱橫四方所向披靡,但正所謂物極必反,到達鼎盛之後,權勢就如同手中握不住的流沙般,一一流逝而去。上流階層看起來很威風,但也有不少守成無方而家道中落的貴族。對照一下路西法的歷程,是不是很貼切?集神的萬千寵愛於一身,一旦路走偏了,終究換不回一切。

Humans are so smart that they think they are omnipotent. In the face of the enormous force of nature, or the gears of fate, human beings are powerless to resist. It sounds like destiny, or fatalism, but in fact there is a limit to what humans can grasp. Power is indeed very useful. When you have it, you can be invincible in all directions, but as the saying goes ''when things reach their peak, power is like quicksand that cannot be grasped.'' The upper class looks majestic, but there are also many nobles whose families are down and have nowhere to go. Compare Lucifer's history, isn't it very appropriate? A beloved god, once astray, everything changed.

 

我們應該慶幸自己,慶幸擁有這麼多的權力,並珍惜地善加利用它。我們可以實現自我、關愛家人、幫助朋友、對社會有所貢獻、讓世界更為理想。是時候觀照自己身為人類的權力了!我可以做什麼?應該做什麼?從中挑出適合的選項,善用我們萬物之靈的權力,與自然和諧相處,才能延長人類在地球上生存的歷史,讓文明繼續延續下去。

We should be fortunate of having so much power and cherish to make good use of it. We can fulfill ourselves, care for our families, help our friends, contribute to society, and make the world a better place. It's time to look at your power as a human being! what can you do? What should be done? Only by picking out suitable options, making good use of the power of the intelligent part of the universe and living in harmony with nature, can we prolong the history of human existence on earth and allow civilization to continue.
