Happy and slow

  Young people naturally like to be happy. They yearn for variety and love the ever-changing times. They like to plan every minute in place, and they like the pleasant surprise experience. For example, in the ancient poems, there is the heroism of “A thousand miles of Jiangling will be returned in one day”, the river is vast, the current is turbulent, and the boat travels thousands of miles. With the development of the times and the advancement of science and technology, the high-speed rail came into being. It is no longer a dream to have morning tea in Guangzhou in the morning and roast duck in Beijing in the afternoon.
  I also like to be happy. For example, when you want to travel, open the territory of China or rotate the globe, thousands of miles, even the other side of the ocean, are no longer far away. We already live in a global village and the communication technology is also developed. If you want to make a long-distance call when you are young, you need to queue up at the post office, then apply for a small sign and enter the phone booth to connect. If it is inconvenient to make a call, you must send a telegram. Back then, there was a special training to tell people how to write telegrams and how to use the shortest words to say something clearly. People cherish words like gold and think repeatedly.
  People at noon, but dream that life can slow down. Lin Yutang said in “The Feast of Life”: “Those who can be busy with the world can be busy with the rest of the world. People are not happy to be free, and it is not to do nothing. Free to read, free to visit famous places, and to be free. If you can make good friends, you can drink while you are free, and you can write a book when you are free. Which is greater than the happiness in the world?”
  Lin Yutang realized the beauty of slowing down. Come to think of it, people in ancient times were slow, everything is not rushed, it is natural. People in ancient times were good at handicrafts and liked to weave and embroider slowly. I went to Dingzhou a few days ago and enjoyed the famous Kesi in Dingzhou. Kesi is known as “carved silk”. During the Northern Song Dynasty, Dingzhou Kesi was famous all over the world. I have seen a Mohe fan with a plain base and withered lotus. It is delicate and exquisite, making people sigh as a fairy. It is known as “one inch of silk and one inch of gold”. A peony flower has a strong three-dimensional effect, and the birds on the side of the flower seem to tremble their feathers, and they can chuckle. There is also a dragon robe with a complex flower shape and very exquisite. It is said that it takes two weaver girls to make it by hand for three years to make such a dragon robe. It can’t help but admire it.
  People in ancient times liked to taste tea slowly. I like to warm the cup and warm the cup, and slowly make a pot of tea in the breeze and sun. Tea art pays attention to tea art etiquette, which is reflected in postures such as sitting, standing, kneeling, and walking. The tea ceremony is a supreme state. Savour tea slowly, pay attention to the color and fragrance of the tea, pay attention to the water quality, tea utensils, and savor carefully when drinking. In tea activities, philosophy, ethics, morals, and Zen are more integrated, so that drinking tea can also cultivate one’s body, taste life, and then achieve spiritual enjoyment. Slowly, you will realize that drinking tea is also a kind of beauty, the harmony between man and nature, there is a big secret in the small teapot, and you can also taste the tastes of life from the light tea soup. When the tea art girl is performing, it is even more enjoyable to slow down. Every move, every smile, is full of intellectual beauty. That kind of beauty washes away the lead; the kind of quietness is like an orchid in the empty valley; the kind of slowness, but it’s particularly moving. At this point, you will understand that it slows down and it is so beautiful.
  A friend likes to travel. He likes to go to some small towns to experience the slow life. People there live slowly, and it seems that everything is not in a hurry. The essayist Bi Shumin also wrote in a travel note: “You see, all natural things are slow. The sun rises little by little and sets little by little; the flowers bloom one by one, and fall one by one; When the rice matures and the linden tree grows old, it is slow. Those sudden natural changes are mostly disasters, such as volcanic eruptions, such as hurricanes and heavy rains… ”
  Which is better to be happy or slow, I think there is only relaxation. Degree, is the best life…
