提不起劲写些什幺,脑子充斥着「我没有敌人,也没有仇恨」刘哓波这一句说话。

圣经忠告我们:「要爱你的敌人,为那逼迫你们的祷告。」(马太福音五:44)翻查资料,原来希腊文的「爱」是要发自大慈悲的心,是消除内在对敌人敌意唯一的方法。

佛家圣严大师也曾说:「慈悲没有敌人,智慧不起烦恼。」

刘晓波有圣贤菩萨慈悲喜捨的心心,超越了爱和恨,他,没有敌人。

写到这,想起已故加拿大诗人、作家与歌手Leonard Cohen 的一首歌「Dance Me To The End Of Love」,歌曲背景是二次世界大战时发生的恐怖大屠杀,在纳粹德国死亡集中营里的一群犹太人,被凌虐折磨,最后被送进毒气室受死,在旁奏着古典音乐的弦乐手,眼睁睁目赌同伴步向死亡,然后自己也逃不了被烧死的命运,他们只好尽情演奏生命中最后的一曲,带有浴火重生的寓意。

加拿大诗人、作家与歌手Leonard Cohen。

歌词的第一句「Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin」是指弦乐团的乐器在火中燃烧。Cohen 所指的「美丽」是充满激情的完满终结。

而「Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon」就把在集中营中的犹太人的遭遇比喻圣经中他们祖先离开巴比伦流亡的痛苦。

面对强权恐布的胁迫,Cohen 写了「Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in, Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove」,最后能否安全穏妥,让鸽子衔着橄榄枝带引轻鬆的回家呢。

圣经记载,毁灭人类的洪水从地上渐渐消退,挪亚从方舟放一只鸽子出去,「到了晚上,鸽子回到他那里,嘴里叼着一个新拧下来的橄榄叶子,挪亚就知道地上的水退了。」(创世记八章11节)

自此人们就把橄榄枝代表和平的信息。递橄榄枝就便是释出善意之意 。直到现在,喜爱和平的人士,以橄榄枝宣示他们的理想;推广与维护和平。

喜欢下面的两句:「Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone… Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn。」当所有目撃者黯然离去,我还在见证你的美丽,筑起破烂不堪的帐蓬庇护你。

再听Leonard Cohen 这首歌,更像是一个为受难者的祷告,以此,献给刘晓波。

Dance Me To The End Of Love, by Leonard Cohen

歌词 :

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 

Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in 

Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love 

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone

Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love


Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on

Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long

We’re both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born

Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn

Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love
