在美國印第安阿帕契族的語言中,沒有罪惡這個字。

他們相信生命像鑽石一樣,當人們出生時,就是純淨無切割的鑽石,每一件發生在我們身上的事,都是在教導我們如何將我們的光反射到世界上;每一項經驗,都給予我們一個新的切割,在鑽石上形成一個新的面向。

鑽石之所以能閃亮地發出光芒,是因為許多切割的面向,這是生命所給予我們的禮物。

 

In the Apache language there is no word for ‘guilt.’ Our lives are like diamonds. When we are born we are pure and uncut. Each thing that happens to us in our lives teaches us how to reflect the light in the world; each experience gives us a new cut, a new facet in our diamond. How brilliantly do those diamonds sparkle whose facets are many, to whom life has given many cuts!”
~ Daniel J. O’Leary quoting Bearwatcher, an Apache medicine man
