This reminds me of a famous song, You Raise Me Up. Its lyrics read as follows: 這讓我想起了一首名歌,”你鼓舞了我“。它的歌詞如下:

When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me
當我心灰意懶,哦,我的靈魂,感到多麼的厭倦;
當困難來臨時,我的心背負著沉重的負擔。
然後,我身體寂靜不動,靜心的等待,
直到你的到來,並與我小坐片刻。

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be
你鼓舞了我,讓我能站在群峰頂上,高瞻遠矚;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能在驚濤駭浪裡,安穩步行。
當我靠在你的肩膀上時,我感到非常堅強;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能超超越自己。

2. Buddha was asked, “What have you gain from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing!” However, Buddha said, let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old Age and Death.”
