不惑的理念与努力

不惑 • 缘起

让生命 不惑 · 有感 · 撼动!

不惑生命学堂终于成立了!

成立前,我们经过了一段时间的酝酿——我们在想:人的生命究竟可以如何不惑,而有感动,而被撼动?

惑、感、撼,这三件都跟“心”息息相关的事情,究竟可以如何做好?让曾经无缘接受小学教育的阿公阿嬤、无缘上大学的许多人都有机会终身学习,而且学习的,都是跟自己生活、生命相关的学问,让自己的生命可以更为豁达,社会可以更和谐!

回想当年,我从乡下来到城里打拼、创业时,每当自己独守一方空间的时候,我总会迷茫:我想做什么?方向在哪里?如何做?

我相信很多人也有过这种经历——从懵懂无知迷茫,到摸索前行,到拼命耕耘……
我也是这么走过来的。

三十年下来,因为工作、社团服务,我有了小小成就与心得。回想当年自己离乡背井时的心愿:修身齐家治国平天下——也许如今是进一步去实现这个心愿的时候。

于是我召集了朋友们一起探讨如何创造一个有温度的心空间,让人可以学习,可以成长,可以少走生命的冤枉路,可以不必那么孤寂……
多次激荡之后,某天,我心里突然浮现了这段话:“子曰,三十而立,四十而不惑……”

这段话突然把我当年的梦和此刻的我联结在一起了!是啊,四十而不惑!
如何让更多的朋友也能四十而不惑、生着活着而不惑呢?

如果“不惑”的醒觉,可以像蒲公英一样,去运行——散播生命的体悟、感动,然后撼动一个个的生命……让被撼动的生命,再变成一朵蒲公英,把他自己生命体悟、磨砺出的那颗珍珠,也点亮下一个人、下一群人——如此一点点、一点点地将力量汇集成河,让更多人有了参考、学习、楷模,而少走生命的冤枉路,是否就能做到四十而不惑,就更能温渡我们的社会了?

这就是我们不惑生命学堂的一个缘起。
就这样,今年九月起,不惑Unilifesity,动起来了!

About Unilifesity

Let Live Life Inspiringly

Unilifesity is officially formed.

We had been through a period of ideas brewing before its establishment. We were wondering: “How could one live a doubtless life, which enable one to feel connected with life and lead to changes in the quality of life?”

惑 · 感 · 撼, all these three words are interrelated with the word “heart” and how can we achieve all these three? Enabling elderly who did not even have the chance for primary education and people who missed the opportunity to attend university, the opportunity to access lifelong learning and to learn everything related to life so that they could be more open-minded and the society could be more harmonious.

Looking back, when I came to the city to develop my career, I always felt lost when I was alone. “What do I want to do? What is my future? How can I achieve it?”, said Lilian.

I believe many others have had the same experience.

In the past 30 years, I had been actively involved in community services, in my career. Through my experiences, I have accomplished some form of achievements as an entrepreneur. Recalling my ambition when I left my hometown: “I want to pay back the society when I have succeeded in my personal life”, now could be the time, my dream comes true.

Hence, I gathered few friends to discuss ways to create a warm and safe space that empowers people in continuous learning and self-development, so that they could avoid costly mistakes in life and feel less lonely.

After rounds of brainstorming, suddenly a proverb appeared in my mind: “At age 30, I stood firm. At age 40, I was unperturbed.”

This proverb suddenly connected my dreams in the past with the current me. I felt that this is my calling. Since I had been through this journey, I wish to encourage more people to live a fulfilling life. I always think: “How can more people able to be unperturbed at age 40? How can more people lead a doubtless life?”.

If the awakening of ‘doubtless’ thought could be like the seeding dandelions, spreading realizations and moments of lives, to touch and incite others, that could turn others into more seeding dandelions, lightening the next, and the next, and the next …. Little by little, the wisdoms accumulated grow to be the learning path for more and more people, fabricating warmth in the society.

This was how Unilifesity started.
