One of the things I like to do on the weekends is go to garage sales. I’m a bargain hunter and collector, so garage sales are good places me. I look in the newspapers or just follow homemade signs to find the sales in my neighborhood. Whether it’s because people are doing spring cleaning or getting y to move, there are always plenty of sales in my area. After going to a lot of garage sales, I’ve learned a few things about getting what I want at the price I want. Bargaining on price is par the course at any garage sale. If you don’t want to get ripped off, you’ll try to get the sellers to lower their price. I’m an early bird and I usually get to the sales bee other people to get the best items. But to get the best prices, be sure to go back right bee the sale ends. Most people are desperate to sell so that they don’t have to store those things again or to lug them to a charity office to give them away. That’s when people are y to slash their prices. It’s true that there is a lot of junk and knickknacks at garage sales. But one person’s trash is another person’s treasure! 73

The Practice of Peace心静如水There are many areas in which peace needs to be accomplished,许多方面需要做到心静如水within ourselves, between ourselves and others,我们的内心,我们和他人之间的关系,and between ourselves and the divine.以及我们和我们内心之间的关系When any part is out of balance,当任何一方失去平衡,a lasting peace cannot be maintained.都不能维持一种持久的平静心境A state of peace does not grow out of a false sense of safety,一种平静的心境并不来自于一种错觉的安全感,but out of understanding how to interact with the ces we are subjected to.而是来自于对如何应对我们周遭事物的理解Rather than reacting automatically,不要去机械地应对,we must learn how to best respond.相反,我们必须学着去以最好的方式应对事物Automatic, habitual reactions lead us and others into blind alleys.机械的,习惯性的反应会将我们带入一个狭窄的盲区Responding, on the other hand, includes response-ability,而相反,理智的反应,包括反应能力,the power to see things as they are,却是一种能看透事物本质的能力,stay balanced and make an appropriate response.保持各方面的平衡,并做出适当的反应This is the action of seeking peace.这才是追求心境如水的本质行为Many may not be aware of the enormous power their choices and actions have upon their lives and the lives of others.很多人可能并没有意识到他们的选择和行为对他们自己的生活以及他人生活的巨大影响力It has been said that even a small amount of real love has the power to dissolve mountains of hate.人们曾说哪怕是一点点真爱都有着化解一座冰山的力量The wonder is why we are so mean with our good will,why we hold onto thoughts of hatred and revenge.既然如此,那我们为什么还要如此吝啬我们的善意,为什么还要紧紧抓住仇恨和复仇的思想不放手Seeing this is the first step.认识到这一点是第一步,Letting go comes next.学会释怀就是第二步Rather than pretending to be loving and peaceful,we must learn how to actively work with all that opposes peace.不要假装爱与平静,相反,我们必须积极地学会应付各类对平静的干扰We must learn how to work with our fear and anger when it arises.我们必须学会当恐惧与愤怒滋长时如何去理智地应对Even in the midst of anger we can be peaceful,if we learn how to handle it properly.如果我们学会如何适当地应对,即使在愤怒进行时,我们也可以平静下来In this way we pursue and practice peace.这样,我们就能够真正地做到心静如水 7
