Where Do We Draw The Line

differences between the thin lines.
 
 

秋陽午後穿過大溪部落,路旁海天深處,霎時掠奪了視線與思緒。呆坐公路旁凝視遠方地平線,按下快門那一刻不禁慨嘆,看似相連的海天卻本屬無情。一條同樣蔚藍深淺不同的細線,將彼此切割的如此清晰分明、無緣無盡。晦暗風雨中或許海天混沌難分,然而一旦曝曬陽光下,內心底仍各執你我、永難交集。
 
路面、護欄、標線,甚至蔓生青草地,都被條條清楚明白的線,切割劃分的看似相連,卻毫無跨越妥協空間。設若天地都能如此分明裁切,俗世裡的國家、種族、政治、階級、貧富、利害、是非黑白、愛恨情仇,還有什麼不能乖離分別呢?
 
小學教室倆人共用一張長條小書桌,那是人生第一次學會彰顯自我意識之始,桌面中央用削鉛筆小刀,劃下人生中第一條分隔彼此疆域的邊境。自此之後,無數條線被我們刻劃進人生,是非黑白我們自詡謹守分際,然而一旦發生利害衝突時,卻又孰是孰非、明爭暗鬥至死方休。條條界線,究竟利他或利己?我們也都學會說:解讀不同而已。

人類自誇為萬物之靈,誑言能夠充滿愛心的守護地球,併以此教育子民。的確,我們愛海豚、鯨魚,卻嫌懼鯊魚、鱷魚;鳴蟬、蝴蝶很可愛,卻憎惡蟑螂、毛蟲;貓狗很可愛,蛇鼠之輩令人望而生厭;基本上,就連最偉大的宗教慈善家,生病時也難免就醫吃藥打針,反觀針劑藥品其治療目的,不正是為了有效殺死細菌或病毒嗎?而站在生物學角度而言,細菌、病毒算不算也是一種地球原生的生命型式呢?與其說尊重生命,愛惜萬物,追根結底人們心中真正在乎的那條線,不過是齣自演自唱、自私自利,演給自己看的儺戲罷了。因為最終我們還是選擇對自己有利的生命或物種,來予以珍惜愛護。對於那些對人類可能造成危害、產生恐懼、甚至長相不夠可愛的生命,經常殺之而後快。忝為人類一員,有時不禁懷疑傳言中明末流寇張獻忠所書「七殺碑」,是否太過簡潔有力又實在乾脆。

線的區隔從出生延續到死亡,甚至劃入超越現實的宗教輪迴中;雖百般教義再再彰顯人應袪惡揚善,不應有分別貪妄之心,然而畢竟宗教也是人所創造,再賦予神格化的產物,故就其信眾所造善因惡果,自有其天堂與地獄之獎懲手段,以做為不同業報終論的..分界線!

人、天地、宿命,繼續劃線吧!

"Where Do We Draw The Line"
 
On your palm an endless wonder
Lines that speak the truth without a sound
In your eyes awaits the tireless hunger
Already looks for prey to run down
 
So why do we keep up this charade
How do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait
What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If it can't be my design
Tell me where do we draw the line
Tell me where do we draw the line
 
The dance of flames and shadows in the street
Make poetry nobody's ever heard
The weight of loneliness stands on your feet
The cage already there around the bird
 
So why don't we join the masquerade
Before it all falls apart before our love becomes insatiate
What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If I can't choose my own design
Tell me where do we draw the line
 
What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
 
If we all walk behind the blind
Tell me where do we draw the line
Tell me where do we draw the line
 
Where's the cooling wind
Where's the evergreen field
Where's my mother's open arms
Where's my father lionheart
S'like the sun's gone down
Sleeps in the hallowed ground now
With the autumn's browns leaves
With the one who never grieves
 
So why do we keep up this charade
How do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait
What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If It can't be my own design
Tell me where do we draw the line
Whatever tomorrow wants from me
At least I'm here, at least I'm free
Free to choose to see the signs
This is my line
 
 
 
 
 
下馬幽泉 
 
白教堂藍的很希臘
 
太陽下的太陽麻
 
夕照秋芒
 
秋聲
 
思念
 
台灣欒花
 
知本林道瀑布  平日水量
