A great many worries can be diminished by realizing the unimportance of the matter which is causing the anxiety. I have done in my time a considerable amount of public speaking; at first every audience terrified me, and nervousness made me speak very badly; I dreaded the ordeal so much that I always hoped I might break my leg before I had to make a speech, and when it was over I was exhausted from the nervous strain. Gradually I taught myself to feel that it did not matter whether I spoke well or ill, the universe would remain much the same in either case. I found that the less I cared whether I spoke well or badly, the less badly I spoke, and gradually the nervous strain diminished almost to a vanishing point. A great deal of worry can be dealt with in this way. Our doings are not so important as we naturally suppose; our successes and failures do not after all matter very much. Even great sorrows can be survived; troubles which seem as if they must put an end to happiness for life fade with the lapse of time until it becomes almost impossible to remember their poignancy. But over and above these considerations is the fact that one’s ego is no very large part of the world. The man who can centre his thoughts and hopes upon something transcending self can find a certain peace in the ordinary troubles of life which is impossible to the pure egoist.

一旦我们认识到焦虑之源并不那么重要,我们的许多烦恼就会跟着减少。我尝试过,在公共演讲的时候。第一次上台,我害怕每一位听众,因为紧张,我讲得很糟;我恐惧这样的演讲历难,每次上台前,总希望自己摔断了双腿,结束后,我又因为过度紧张,精疲力竭。后来,我渐渐学着去体会,不管我讲得好还是糟,世界都不会因此而改变。我发现我越发不在乎演讲结果,我越发讲得不错,紧张的情绪慢慢消失殆尽。同样的,我们的许多烦恼也能随风而去。我们所做的一切并非如我们所想象的那样重要;成功与失败根本影响不了我们多少。即使身陷痛悲,我们也能解脱;就连那些看似要剥夺我们幸福生活的苦闷,也会伴着时间的消逝,让我们的记忆几乎想不起它们辛酸的味道。然而,无论怎样,我们还得承认这样一个事实,每个自我只不过是人世间极小的一个部分。不会是那些纯粹的信奉利己主义的人,只会是那些想法和希望都超越自我中心的人,才能在百姓生活的困惑中,独享那份安宁。
