The Hated Potatoes

被憎恨的土豆

A kindergarten teacher decided to let her class play a game. The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be written a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.

一位幼兒園的老師決定讓她班上的學生做個游戲。老師要求班上的每個孩子帶一個塑料袋來,并在袋子里裝上幾個土豆。因為每個土豆上都要寫一個他們所憎恨的人的名字,所以,孩子們會往塑料袋里放多少個土豆要看他有多少個憎恨的人。

So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had two potatoes; some three, while some had up to five potatoes.

于是,到了這一天,每個孩子都帶來了一些土豆,上面寫著自己憎恨的人的名字。有的帶了兩個土豆,有的三個,有的則足足帶了五個。

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for two weeks. Day after day passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes they were carrying.

然后老師告訴孩子們:兩周之內,他們無論去哪兒(甚至是去洗手間),都要隨身帶著自己的那袋土豆。一天天過去了,孩子們帶的土豆腐爛了,發出難聞的氣味,他們開始抱怨起來。

Those children having five potatoes really began to feel the weight of the heavier bags. After two weeks, the children were relieved to hear that the teacher had finally ended the game. The teacher asked "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for two weeks?"The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

那些帶著五個土豆的孩子開始真切地感受到袋子變得越來越沉。兩周過后,當老師終于宣布游戲結束時,孩子們個個如釋重負。老師問道:“你們整整兩周把這些土豆帶在身邊,感覺怎么樣?”孩子們紛紛發泄自己的不滿,開始抱怨自己無論去哪兒都不得不經受帶著這些又重又臭的土豆所帶來的麻煩。

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will end up carrying an unnecessary burden with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just two weeks, can you imagine what a burden it would be to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime?"

這時,老師給孩子們講述了這個游戲背后的意義。老師說:“這正是你內心裝滿了對別人的憎恨時的情景。憎恨所發出的惡臭會污染你的心靈,結果無論你走到哪里,都要背負著一個不必要的負擔。如果你對于土豆腐爛的氣味連兩個星期都忍受不了,那么你能想象得 到,假如一生都讓憎恨的惡臭充塞自己的心靈,那將會是多么沉重的一個負擔嗎?”
