Happiness is a by-product! 「快樂」是一個副產品!


I used to consider Yoga as a tool to escape from the stress. By simply stretching and sweating, it does relieve the tension from my body as well as mind. Yoga was one of various activities I tried out in order to pursue the state of feeling happy.

Not long ago I read a book written by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He pointed out that happiness is only a by-product, not an objective. All of a sudden his works awoke me and made me realise that I had been chasing the tail of happiness!

It also echoes how I feel about photography. There have been ups and downs in the journey of learning photography but I am not discouraged by any unhappy moments or incidents.

Every experience, happy and unhappy, altogether strengthen my faith and passion in this path.

曾經把瑜珈當作是減低工作壓力的一種方法。體位法的不同動作,可以拉拉筋、流流汗,暫時讓我的身心恢復活力。當時認為瑜珈僅是一個讓自己快樂的途徑。

不久前,拜讀了一本薩姜米龐 仁波切的著作。書中提到,「快樂不是人生目標,而是副產品」。剎那間,有如當頭棒喝般將我喚醒。

原來,我ㄧ直都在追逐著快樂的尾巴。

這也呼應著我對攝影的感受。在學習的過程中,有開心與不開心的時刻,但是我從來沒有因為那些挫折而感到灰心。

事實上,在攝影裡嚐到酸、甜、苦、辣,都更加堅定了我的信念與熱誠。
