Fear leads to life

小黄兔

Grace Paley的诗集里,有一首叫做Responsibility的诗,其中一句是“”There is no freedom without fear and bravery"。这句话不期然地击中我的心,表面上的相互矛盾--fear and bravery,让我一时摸不着头脑。但静下来想一想,里面隐含的逻辑,却是那么深刻。

她另一首叫做Fear的诗,从另一个侧面解释了以上那句话的逻辑:

I am afraid of nature because of nature, I am mortal my children and my grandchildren are also mortal I lived in the city for forty years in this way, I escaped for fear.

有死亡的恐惧,才有生的选择;城市的生活,远离大自然,仿佛死亡已经不会追捕自己。人过得太安逸,会渐渐变得麻木,产生一种一天一天安全安心过下去的幻觉,不需要选择,不需要思考。而自由,往往是在非常困难的处境下,才会凸显出来。

无独有偶,最近看完的《The Museum of Modern Love》(by Heather Rose)里面,也有关于fear的讨论:

Fear leads to life. Without fear you don't have doubt. Without doubt you don't have reason. Without reason, you don't have choice. Without choice,...

这句话不就恰恰解释了Paley的诗么?

每当我产生恐惧、迷茫、困惑时,我就告诉自己,这是一种通往自由的过程:一点一滴的思考和自省,是我脑中黑洞形成的能量粒子;这个黑洞看似什么都没有,但到了某个时候,就会释放能量,爆发小宇宙--

Fear leads to life。
