  One day a professor entered the classroom and told the students about a surprise test. After hearing that all students were seated and waited for the test to begin. Now, the professor gave the test papers to all students with text facing down at the desk. Once he was done with handing out the test to all students, he asked them to turn the test pages and begin.

  一天一位教授走进教室,跟学生说要进行一次突击测试。听到这个消息,所有学生都坐好等待测试开始,然后教授把试卷发给所有学生,有字的一面朝下放。所有试卷都发完后,教授让学生把试卷翻过来,开始测试。

  Student’s were confused to see that there was not a question but just a black dot in the center of the page. The professor noticed the students' face expression and told them, “I want you to write about what you see there.”

  学生看到卷上没有问题,在纸中央只有一个黑点,都很困惑。教授注意到了学生脸上的表情,说:“我想让你们把看到的都写下来。”

  The students were still confused but got started with the test. At the end of the class, the professor took all answer sheets and started reading each answer from each sheet in front of all students. All of them described about the black dot and tried to explain its position etc.. After the professor finished reading the whole class was silent.

  学生们依旧疑惑,但都开始了测试。快下课时教授把所有试卷都收上来,开始在全班面前读每张试卷上的答案。所有学生都描述了那个黑点,并努力说明它的位置。教授读完以后全班都沉默了。

  Now, professor began to explain, “Don’t worry, I am not going to give you grades for this but I just want you to think about something. Here everyone focused on the black dot wrote about it but no one wrote about the white paper, the same is with our lives. The white paper represents our whole life and the black spot represents problems in our life.

  现在教授开始解释:“不用担心,这个测试我不会给你们打分,我只是想让你们思考一件事。这里的每个人关注的都是黑点,写的都是这个黑点,却没人描述这张白纸,我们的生活也是如此。白纸代表我们的一生,黑点代表我们生活中的问题。

  Our life is a gift given to us by God, with love and care, and we always have reasons to celebrate –our friends around us, the job that provides us our livelihood, the miracles we see everyday.

  我们的生命是上帝赐予我们的礼物,其中充满爱和关心,我们总是有快乐的理由——身边的朋友、为我们提供生计的工作,还有我们每天看到的不可思议的事。

  Still we just focus on day to day problems like health issues, lack of money, problems in relationships etc. but we never see that these problems are very small compared to everything we have in our lives.”

  我们仍然只是日复一日地关注着问题,比如健康问题、缺钱、人际关系的问题等,我们却从未看到和我们生活中所拥有的一切相比,这些问题简直微不足道。”

  Moral Lesson: We should try to take eyes off our problems and Enjoy each one of our blessings, Each moment that life gives us. Be happy and Live Life Positively.

  道理:我们应该努力把注意力从问题上移开,享受你所拥有的一切和生命里的每一刻。要幸福快乐,积极面对生活。
