Never get along 不能和睦相處

Q: Guruji, in life those people who don’t get along well are hitched together while those who get along really well are not paired together. Is this the plan of the Divine? Is he doing this on purpose?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: You mean about your marriage? You know, when you don’t get along, you forget all those days when you got along very well. Because those days, you didn’t get along, you feel, 'Oh, from the very beginning, we never got along.'An American couple who were married for 40 years came to me and said that they wanted to divorce. The lady said, 'You know Gurudev, we have been married for 40 years but we never got along even for a single day.' I said, 'How could you spend 40 years and never get along for even one day?!' They are already around sixty to seventy years old. They could not get along for the last forty years and still they were carrying on. Usually this doesn’t happen in American society. If two people don’t get along, that is it. They don’t stay together at all. Suddenly in your mind you think, at some point, 'Oh, we never got along in the past also.' Well, the world is like that. There is no guarantee that those people with whom you think you will get along very, you will actually get along with them very well. The grass is always greener on the other side.

問:古儒吉,在生命裡那些合不來的人卻結合了而那些很合得來的卻沒有被配對。這是神性的計劃嗎?祂是故意的嗎?

古儒吉:你是指你的婚姻嗎?你可知道,當你合不來的時候,
你忘記了那些你們曾經相處得很好的日子。因為那些日子,你合不來,你就覺得:『噢,從一開始,我們就合不來』一對結婚了40年的美國夫婦來見我並說他們要離婚。那女士說:『古儒吉您知道嗎,我們結婚了40年但是我們一天都不能好好相處。』我說:『你怎麼能在一起40年而好好相處一天都不能?!』他們已經六十至七十歲了。他們四十年來都不能好好相處但是他們還是繼續下去。通常這不會發生在美國社會。如果兩個人合不來,就是這樣了。他們完全不會在一起。突然間你的心智會想,在某個點,『噢,我們過去也是合不來。』好了,世界就是這麼樣的。是沒有保障說那些你認為你會和他們相處得很好的,你就能和他們相處得好。另外一端的草永遠都是比較綠的。
