Be a real noble person

In daily life, everyone hopes to meet the noble person and hope that the noble person can help. However, some people often take it for granted when they receive assistance from others, and even complain about the other party: “It is not enough for you to help a little bit, you should continue to help!” What’s more, the noble person has already appeared in front of you. But still ignorant or careless to identify the person of importance or great ability, thinking that the other party is nosy.

If you meet someone with this kind of mentality, it’s like an idiom that i have read: “A dog biting Lu Dong Bin and to ill reward a person’s kindness.” Lu Dong Bin took some food to feed the dog because of his kindness. As a result, the dog was not grateful, but bit him back. There are many such situations in society. You help the other person. Not only does he not know how to be grateful, but he even blames you for troubles. No matter how kind you treat him, he is dissatisfied, and may even return favour and revenge. Encountering such a thing, it is difficult for people to balance, what should we do at this time?

Lü Dongbin (796 CE-1016 CE) is a legendary Chinese scholar and poet said to have lived during the Tang Dynasty. Whether he actually lived the two hundred and twenty years cannot be determined. Elevated to the status of an immortal in the Chinese cultural sphere by Daoists, he is one of the most widely known of the group of deities known as the Eight Immortals. Lü is also a historical figure and mentioned in the official history book History of Song. He is widely considered to be one of the earliest masters of neidan, or internal alchemy. He is also depicted in art dressed as a scholar carrying a sword to dispel evil spirits.

Therefore, a scholar once told me: “Good people are difficult to do, and good doors are difficult to open.” Therefore, to be a small good person, you can’t be a big good person; To do small good things, you can’t do big good things; If you want to open the door of small goodness, you can’t open the door of great goodness.”

I ask him why? He said: “When a person is hungry, you give him a catty of rice and let him take it home to cook, he will be very grateful, because without this bowl of rice, he may not be able to survive. But if you take it People who have no food to eat are raised at home and give him food every day. When you ask him to help with things, he may become disgusted: ‘What’s so great, I’m just eating a few bites of your meal, what do you think of me?’ Gradually, such psychological contradictions and conflicts will appear.”

This layman’s statement is very interesting, and the reason seems to be correct, but in fact it is not completely correct.

For example, as long as someone knows that Fagushan or so-called Dharma Drum Mountain is an international Buddhist spiritual is doing relief work, they will come to the door one after another, hoping that we will give them money and materials. If they feel that we are not giving enough, they will shout loudly: “Buddha should be very merciful, why are you so so? No mercy?” So some people think that if we never do charity work, no one knows, and no one will call us or beg us.

Dharma Drum Mountain is an international Buddhist spiritual, cultural, and educational foundation founded by late Chan master Sheng-yen. The center focuses on educating the public in Buddhism with the goal of improving the world and establishing a “Pure Land on Earth” through Buddhist education.

But there must be mutual assistance and cooperation between people. When you have the resources and ability, you should try to help others. As for whether others regard you as a noble person, it doesn’t matter. Although there may be some sequelae, if you want to do good deeds, open good doors, and be others’ nobles, you shouldn’t care about it, and you shouldn’t hope to get thanks from others after doing good deeds. Doing good things is simply because you are “willing” to do it. When the other person gets help, you feel very happy. This is the reward you get from helping others. As for how others will criticize and treat yourself in the future, you don’t need to care too much.

Therefore, if you want to be someone else’s real noble person, you should try your best to do what you can do. Other people’s criticism, slander, and excessive demands do not need to be taken into consideration. Because no matter how others scolded, it is his business and has nothing to do with him; if you should not be scolded and get scolded, it is the wrongdoing of others, you don’t need to be angry or discouraged. As long as you can dedicate yourself, you should feel happy.

There is actually only one true “noble person” in life, but unfortunately many people don’t know how to cherish it.

Some people say that every person we meet in our lives who helps us is our noble person. Their appearance has warmed our lives. Maybe they gave us a hand when we were most desperate, or maybe they woke us up when they were full of ambition. In short, because of the appearance of nobles in this life, our lives have brilliance.

However, these nobles only flash in our lives, as gorgeous as fireworks but not long. How lucky we are to meet in this life; if not, it is normal.

Having gone through so many twists and turns and watching so many other people’s experiences, in my understanding, I always firmly believe that everyone has a real “noble person” in their life, that is, ourselves, and please cherish it for the rest of your life.

The meaning of hard work is to become your own nobleman for yourself, just like my dad always said: “The road must be walked by yourself, so that you can go wider and wider.”

No matter where we go, no matter what we do, we need to rely on ourselves for most of our lives. One of my noble said: “You cannot live without friends. Among all friends, the most important one cannot be missed, and that is myself.

I have a friend who met when he was in college. At that time, he was positive, sunny, and brave. Many people liked him and pursued him. As the same sex, we never envied him for having so many girls like it. On the contrary, who doesn’t like such a big boy?

Later, we joined the same company, the performance was similar, but the reputation was different. He is willing to help others, always willing to extend a helping hand to others, and when others have difficulties, he is always willing to ask him for help.

Perhaps everyone’s life trajectory is really different. After two years of working together, we could have been promoted together, but he was lying in a hospital bed for half a year due to an accidental car accident. It was only half a year later that he knew that his legs would not return to the way they used to be in this life, that is to say, he could only spend the second half of his life in a wheelchair.

Because of his good popularity, so many nobles appeared in his life at this time. All the employees of the company did their best to collect enough medical expenses for him, so that he and his family do not have to worry about high medical expenses, and avoid the pain of running around and borrowing money;

The company paid for him to install a prosthesis, so that he can stand up temporarily by external force. If the company does not pay the money, he will not be able to install a prosthesis for at least five years on his own family alone; friends volunteered to take care of him , Accompany him to relax every day, and even friends do not think he has trouble taking him to travel together.

He said these people are the nobles in his life. Indeed, without the help of these nobles, he would not have gone so smoothly after being hospitalized.

But since he was discharged from the hospital, I have witnessed him sitting in a wheelchair playing basketball and watching him dancing with the help of a prosthesis. I personally witnessed him who never knew how to cook before, but now he cooks three meals a day for his family and friends.

The big boys who were originally sunny did not complain about themselves after losing their legs, but instead loved life even more. His change and mentality may be related to the help of relatives and friends. It is the hope that these nobles have given him to live, but his own heart is even more powerful.

Everyone gave him help only once, once or several times. Behind everyone’s invisible, he encourages himself and faces life positively every day. It is hard for us to imagine that he faces his own double in these days. The legs are how to try to stand, try to play basketball, and try to cook again and again. It is also difficult for us to imagine how he spends every night that is sleepless.

He tried countless times and failed countless times. The ultimate success relied on his own tempering thousands of times. If it were not his own will and yearning for life, even if the people around him helped him, it would be nothing more than a body of self-pity. It is him who makes his life meaningful; It was himself who gave himself a second life.

There is a saying, when you go to a high place, it is you who stabilize you; when you go to a low place, it is also you who make you survive.

I saw a question on a certain platform. Someone asked how I spent the hardest time in my life. Some people say that in that darkest moment, they said they pulled out of the abyss.

In a sense, the only real nobles in life are ourselves. We live in this world, and we all have our own established road to go. The difficulties and setbacks on this road can only be faced by ourselves, and no one can replace them.

My dad always said: “It is better to rely on others as self-reliance, and it is better to be a person than to be yourself.”

No matter when, we can really rely on ourselves. Just like this friend of mine, many people will think that he has benefited from the help of so many noble people in the second half of his life. But I think that the reason why these people lend a helping hand when he is the most difficult is because all his previous actions also brought warmth to others.

If he does not often help friends and colleagues, then these friends and colleagues are just expressing sympathy. If he is not diligent and hardworking at work, then the company is just giving some condolences out of humanitarianism. What he gets now is the blessing he has paid.

In the final analysis, the noble man in his life is still himself.

How short a person’s life is, but most people still don’t know how to cherish it. Most people complain about themselves, complain about their bad background, complain about bad work, complain about social injustice, complain about the lack of help from nobles, complain about people around them, and things around them are not going as smoothly. In fact, many times, it is these complaints that make our lives gloomy.

Everyone will experience suffering, and there is no absolute fairness in this society. We can only fight for what we want. There is no pie in the sky, and there is no free lunch. You will get as much as you pay. If you don’t work hard, you won’t gain, and if you don’t work, you won’t be rewarded.

Don’t complain about the so-called injustice, don’t complain about life because of difficulties, don’t sacrifice yourself for the grievances of others. Think of yourself as the most important person in your life, work hard to love yourself, work hard to love the world.

Even if you are in the darkest abyss, don’t give up on yourself, try to let yourself catch up with the sun, and live your splendid life actively and bravely, more than anything else.

There is only one life, and it deserves our best effort to give full play to its brilliance. When you learn to love yourself and cherish yourself, you will become a real noble person in your short life.
