All of us can work peace. We can work right where we are, right within ourselves, because the more peace we have within our own lives, the more we can reflect into the outer situation. 8

It may seem an exaggeration to say that ambition is the drive of society,holding many of its different elements together, but it is not an exaggeration by much.Remove ambition and the essential elements of society seem to fly apart.Ambition is intimately connected with family, men and women not only work partly their families;husbands and wives are often ambitious each other,but harbor some of their most ardent ambitions their children.Yet to have a family nowadays—with birth control ily available,and inflation a good economic argument against having children—is nearly an expression of ambition in itself.Finally,though ambition was once the domain chiefly of monarchs and aristocrats,it has, in more recent times,increasingly become the domain of the middle classes.Ambition and futurity—a sense of building tomorrow—are inextricable.Working, saving, planning—these, the daily aspects of ambition—have always been the distinguishing marks of a rising middle class.The attack against ambition is not incidentally an attack on the middle class and what it stands .Like it or not, the middle class has done much of society’s work in America;and it, the middle class, has from the beginning run on ambition.It is not difficult to imagine a world short of ambition.It would probably be a kinder worldwithout demands, without abrasions,without disappointments.People would have time reflection.Such work as they did would not be themselves but the collectivity.Competition would never enter in.Conflict would be eliminated, tension become a thing of the past.The stress of creation would be at an end.Art would no longer be troubling, but purely entertaining in its functions.The family would become superfluous as a social ,with all its mer power bringing about neurosis drained away.Life span would be expanded, fewer people would die of heart attack or stroke caused by overwork.Anxiety would be extinct.Time would stretch on and on, with ambition long departed from the human heart.Ah, how unbearably boring life would be! 387

True Love

我很幸运有开朗的性格,会享受这个世界的快乐对于日常生活,我想说:世界每时每刻都在变化我不希望生活充斥着物质追求;另一方面,我也不愿盲目否定自我以期待神赐喜悦的来临一天的快乐一天当就够了Escape the Dark Destructive ce by Robert Hillyer“I feel the coming glory of the light.” This last line of Edwin Arlington Robinson’s sonnet “Credo” expresses the general basis of my belief. It is my task to clear away the debris of dead emotions, regrets, and petty ambitions that the quickening light may come through. The five senses and the mystery of the breath draw in the wonder of the world, and with that the glory of God. I may seldom rise to moments of exaltation, but I try to keep myself prepared them. Thus, I oppose the desire oblivion that gnaws at our roots even as the light is summoning us to bloom.The desire oblivion conspires against the soul from outer circumstances and also from within oneself. Its agents are worry and resentment, envy and show. Its impulse is to seek things that are equally disappointing whether they are missed or acquired. Its result is an abject conviction that everything is futile. By meditation and prayer, I can escape that dark, destructive ce and win my way back to the beauties of the world and the joy of God.I believe in my survival after death. Like many others bee me, I have experienced “intimations of immortality.” I can no more explain these than the brown seed can explain the flowering tree. Deep in the soil in time’s midwinter, my very stirring and unease seems a kind of growing pain toward June.As to orthodox belief, I am an Episcopalian, like my family bee me. I can repeat the Creed without asking too much margin personal interpretation. To me it is a pattern, like the sonnet m in poetry, the compact expression of faith. There are other patterns other people, and I have no quarrel with these. By many paths we reach the single goal.I believe in the good intentions of others, and I trust people instinctively. My trust has often been betrayed in petty ways, and once or twice gravely. I cannot stop trusting people, because suspicion is contrary to my nature. Nor would I, because the number of people who have justified my trust are ten to one to those who have abused it. And I know that on occasion I have myself, perhaps inadvertently, failed to live up to some trust reposed in me.That the universe has a purposeful movement toward spiritual perfection seems to me logical, unless we are all cells in the brain of an idiot. A belief in spiritual as well as physical evolution has sustained me in an optimism still unshaken by cynics. There may be setbacks of a century or even centuries, but they seem small reverses when measured against the vast prospect of human progress or even the record of it up to this point.I am blessed with a buoyant temperament and enjoy the pleasures of this earth. daily living, I would say one world at a time. I do not wish my life to be cluttered with material things; on the other hand, I do not wish to anticipate, by fanatical self-denial, the raptures to come. Sufficient unto the day is the good thereof. 0193668
