Source text - Chinese 談世間之事
The moon waxes and weans, the year a continuous cycle of seasons. People are always going through the cycle of birth and death, with happiness and sorrow of meeting and parting. Life is unpredictable, and seldom do things turn out the way you expect them to. This is a fact held true since the dawn of time.
I knew that my father was so sick he could no longer be helped by modern medicine, and that his life was coming to an end. Though I already foresaw death coming, I could not help but feel heartbroken when the moment actually arrived. I reminisced about past days when I lived under the care of my parents. They shared the joy of my triumphs, bitterness of my difficulties, and pain of my failures. They consoled me and provided me with strength to work my way to the top. Now, all of a sudden I have lost my support. Afraid and despondent, I lament that, “winds will not stop when trees yearn to be still, parents will not wait until their child is ready to support them.” Things in life are diverse and complex; yet do not stray from some sort of order. After profound reflection, I’ve discovered how to live life through both order and chaos. I now share my thoughts with you.
