心存期待,现实都发光

心存期待,现实都发光
几天前,我闲来无事看着电视。看到一个真人秀节目,一群人衣衫褴褛,没有食物,没有饮用水,被困在一个荒岛上,只有通过与对方战斗来取得节目中的生存权。在几分钟之内,他们不停搏斗,连火都生不起来,弄倒了临时帐篷,最后发现接下来的三天里仅有靠一只椰子活下去了。

真倒霉啊,是吧?

我心里这么想着,却意外地发现他们在海滩上坐着,谈论着食物的话题。“想一想吃裘斯汉堡的感觉吧!”一个神情疲倦的、围着黄围巾的女人说道,“盖在上面闪闪发光的黄油,一块方形的慢慢融化着的厚切达干酪,还有顶部的香脆培根……”

“真不错!”一个灰头垢面的、脖子上刺着文身的男人继续说道,“还有热乎乎的炸薯条呢!在大炸锅里金灿灿地翻滚,上面撒点盐,在旁边放根香脆的腌黄瓜,真是美味极了!”

大家都开始笑起来,闪烁的双眸中透露出难以遏制的兴奋,好像他们的大脑在另外一个美食仙境神游。

最美好的幻想让他们重拾活力。心存期待,现实都发光。

我们心灵的美妙幻想总是能将我们带到一个乌托邦般的世界里。在幻想的世界里,一切感受都那么真实,一切美梦都能成真。

那么现在,你想要得到什么?你想要和谁在一起?你想要去什么地方?

只要闭上眼睛……去想象。

棒极了!

英文原文:

I was flipping past a reality show on TV and there was this group of dirty folks in rags stranded on some desert island. They had no food, no showers, and nothing to do except brutally fight each other to avoid getting booted off the show. In the span of a few minutes, I saw them struggle and fail to make a fire, watch their makeshift shelter collapse, and realize that for the next three days they had to survive on a coconut.

Bummer, right?

Well I thought so but the next scene showed them sitting around a cold beach talking about food. “Just think about eating a juicy burger right now,” the tired woman in a yellow bandana began. “With the grease just glistening on it, a square of thick cheddar cheese slowly melting, and crispy bacon on top.”

“Mmmm,” dirty-faced man with neck tattoos continued. “And some hot oily fries beside that. Glistening from the deep fryer… with salt sprinkled all over them … and a crisp dill pickle on the side.”

Everybody started smiling, their eyes were aglow, as their brains sent them soaring somewhere else.

The best fantasies do that.

It’s incredible how our minds can shoot us places we’ve never been before. Fantasies fill us with experiences that feel and seem real… and where anything we want to happen suddenly can. What do you want in your life right now? Who do you want to be with? Where do you dream of going to? Just close your eyes…

… and see it.

AWESOME!
