冬至春又来,人类文明何去? After Winter There is Spring, Whither Human Civilisation? (摘自MFM电子通讯英文版第11期 悟在阴阳—社会经济观)

回顾即将过去的动荡一年,金融风暴和经济危机让当今全球陷入不明朗的局势,引起了我对未来文明走向变幻莫测的感觉。然而阴阳运转乃是万物之道,精彩的时代可能很快就要到来,同时也正值乱世当前,楚国诗人屈原在《离骚》中所表达的悲壮情怀,忽然引起了我的共鸣。 “日月忽其不淹兮,春与秋其代序;惟草木之零落兮,恐美人之迟暮;不抚壮而弃秽兮,何不改乎此度?乘骐骥以驰骋兮,来吾导夫先路。”这样悲壮又富有哲理的情怀中,我们要坚信阴阳之道的感悟那就是人类的春天很快即将来临。物极必反、阴阳运转,社会经济的变乱中,全新的和谐平衡将会建立起来。正如北宋诗人林逋的诗句“暗香浮动月黄昏”, “粉蝶如知合断魂,占尽风情向小园”寓意着春天快来的诗意。诗词不但是表达诗人的感情,还反映社会的生活风俗变动。从屈原到汉唐盛世的孔融李白杜甫,再到宋朝苏轼李清照的词,它与唐诗元曲有很明显的比对,无论是在诗词的形体更有鲜明内容的表述,都有反映历史社会的描述性差别。此时此刻,我们要鼓起勇气,面对未来!不能象南宋辛弃疾对国家兴亡之感慨,泪满无底河,借水怨山,愁上加愁,“西山望长安,可怜无数山。青山遮不住,毕竟东流去”; 要有项羽 “力拔山兮气盖世”的豪情,更要有壮丽之正气来建立未来人类文明的希望。
