UKUKHANYA KAKRESTU.

KUSEKUQALA kobusika. Imibane ekhanyayo empuma esemazantsi ihambisa umkhosi wobusuku kwaye uxelele ngenkqubela yemini. Amafu ahlanganisana njengosuku lokunxiba kwaye aphose izithunzi ezinde kakhulu zonyaka. Imithi ayinanto, incanca isezantsi, kwaye amaqabaka eqabaka agqobhoza umhlaba oluluhlaza.

Ngokuhlwa kuza; amafu atshintsha isibhakabhaka sibe dome yelokhanyo. Imimoya iyalila isimbonono sokufa; kwisithuba esincinci ngaphezulu komgca womhlaba osentshona, isibhakabhaka esimpunga sinyuka ngokungathi sisigaba. Ukumkani wokufa wasemazulwini, ogqunywe ngumlilo emhlabeni ogqunywe ingubo emfusa, unyibilika kwindawo engcangcazelayo, ngaphaya kwentili ehamba ngeenduli ezikude. Imibala iyaphela; amafu akhokelela kufutshane naye; imimoya iyafa; Umhlaba uyabanda Yonke into isongelwe bubumnyama.

Intlungu yexesha lonyaka wayo wokugqibela yenziwe. Umntu oqiqayo ujonga, kwaye uyayibona intlekele yobomi obufanayo-kunye noqikelelo lweyakhe. Ubona ukungabi nto yenzame kumjikelo wobomi obungenasiphelo nokufa, kwaye ulusizi luwa phezu kwakhe. Ubudenge wayeya kubeka phantsi ubunzima beminyaka aze adlule kukulityala lokungaphuphi angalali. Kodwa akakwazi. Isikhalo esibuhlungu soluntu saphula ubumnyama bosizi; kwaye uyamva. Ukuphakama kobuthathaka bomntu: Iinkolelo ezilahlekileyo, ubuhlobo obuchithekileyo, ukungabinambulelo, uhanahaniso, inkohliso, ziyabonakala. Entliziyweni yakhe akukho ndawo yezi. Uziva lusizi lwehlabathi elisemqaleni kwaye ligabha ngentliziyo ebuhlungu yomntu. Ngokwakhe umntu uva ukukhala komntu kumandla okubona, ukuva, nokuthetha. Ubomi bexesha elidlulileyo kunye nobomi bokuza kufumana ilizwi ngaphakathi kuye, kwaye ezi zithetha ngokuthe cwaka.

Indlela yelanga ifanekisela ubomi bomntu: ngokuqinisekileyo ukuba uza kunyuka-kwaye nokuba isibhakabhaka siqaqambile, okanye sigqunywe ngaphezulu — ngokuqinisekileyo sisitya simnyama. Le ibiyikhosi ebekuqhubeka kuyo yonke iminyaka emininzi kwaye inokuqhubeka kwi-aeon engaziwayo. Ubomi bonke bomntu kukuphaphazela komoya, isibane ngexesha. Kukukhanya okukhanya, okufakelwayo, okunesinxibo, esiwayo kunye nemizuzu embalwa edlalayo kwinqanaba; Liyagungqa, linyamalale, lingabi sabonwa. Uza ke, akazi apho avela khona. Uyadlula- phi? Ngaba umntu uzalelwe ukulila, ukuhleka, ukubandezeleka kwaye nokonwaba, ukuthanda, ukuba ufanele afe? Ngaba ukupheliswa komntu kusoloko kukufa? Imithetho yendalo iyafana kubo bonke. Kukho indlela kwi-blade yengca ekhulayo. Kodwa ingca ingca yecala. Indoda yindoda. Ingca iyatyatyamba kwaye ibune; ayibuzi ukukhanya kwelanga okanye iqabaka. Indoda ibuza imibuzo ngelixa ihlupheka, ithande kwaye isweleke. Ukuba akaphendulwanga, kutheni ebuza nje? Abantu babuze imibuzo ukutyhubela iminyaka. Okwangoku, akukho mpendulo kunokubakho kwi-echo ye blade rustle. Indalo izala umntu, ke imnyanzele ukuba enze iziphoso azibuyisele ubunzima kunye nokufa. Ngaba indalo enobubele ifanele yenziwe ukuba ilinge kunye nokutshabalalisa? Abafundisi bathetha ngokulungileyo nokubi, ngokulungileyo nokubi. Kodwa yintoni elungileyo? yintoni embi? ndithini? Yintoni ephosakeleyo? Kufuneka kubekho ubulumko kule ndawo yendalo iphela yomthetho. Ngaba ukubuza umntu kuya kuhlala kungaphendulwa? Ukuba ukuphela kwayo konke kukufa, kutheni le nto ulonwabo kunye nentlungu yobomi? Ukuba ukufa akupheli konke ngenxa yomntu, uya kuyazi njani na into yokungafi kwakhe?

Kukho ukuthula. Njengoko ilanga lisiya likhula, amagqabi amakhephu avela ngasentla. Bazigubungela amasimi omkhenkce kwaye bafihla ingcwaba lelanga entshona. Zifihla ukungazali komhlaba kwaye zikhusela ubomi bayo bexesha elizayo. Kwaye kuthi cwaka kuphuma imibuzo emntwini.

Owu umhlaba obharhileyo! Owu umhlaba odiniweyo! Indawo yokudlala yemidlalo, kunye nethiyetha yegazi elinezinto ezininzi! Indoda elihlwempuzekileyo, engonwabanga, umdlali wemidlalo, umakhi wamacandelo owenzayo! Omnye unyaka udlule, omnye uyeza. Kufa bani? Uhlala nabani? Ngubani ohleka? Ngubani olilayo? Ngubani ophumeleleyo? Ngubani olahlekileyo, kwisenzo esisandul 'ukuphela? Athini la malungu? Unobundlongondlongo obungenalusini, kunye nengcinezelo ecinezelweyo, ingcwele, umoni, idolt, kunye ne-sage, ziyinxalenye ozidlalayo. Isinxibo osinxibayo, ukutshintsha kunye nokutshintsha kwezinto kwisenzo ngasinye esiphumeleleyo sokwenza umboniso wobomi, kodwa uhlala ungumdlali weqonga-bambalwa abadlali abadlala kakuhle, kwaye bambalwa abayaziyo indawo yabo. Nanini na, wena mlingisi olungileyo, ozifihlileyo kuwe nakwabanye, kwizinxibo zenxalenye yakho, yiza kwinqanaba kwaye udlale, ude uhlawule kwaye ufumane umvuzo wento nganye kwiinxalenye ozidlalayo, ude ube ulisebenzisile ixesha lakho kunye wafumana inkululeko kumdlalo. Indoda engentle! ngokuzimisele kakhulu okanye ukungadlali ungonwabanga kuba ungazi, kuba awuyi kufunda icandelo lakho-kwaye ngaphakathi lihlala lahlukile.

Umntu uxela umhlaba ukuba ufuna inyaniso, kodwa abambelele kuyo kwaye akaguquki kubuxoki. Umntu ubiza ngokuvakalayo ukukhanya, kodwa athi shwaka xa ukukhanya kuye kumkhokelela ebumnyameni. Umntu uvala amehlo akhe, aze akhale ukuba akaboni.

Xa umntu ejonge kwaye avumele izinto zikhanye, ukukhanya kuya kubonisa okuhle nokubi. Yintoni eyenzelwe yena, into afanele ukuba ayenze, kulungile, kulungile, kufanelekile. Konke okunye, kuye, kubi, kuphosakele, akulunganga. Imelwe kukuba ibe njalo.

Lowo uthanda ukubona, aze kubona, kwaye uya kuqonda. Ukukhanya kwakhe kuyambonisa: "Hayi," "makube," "ayonto ilunge kakhulu." Xa umntu evile u-"hayi "kwaye eyazi u" ewe, "ukukhanya kwakhe kuya kumbonisa:" Ewe, "" Yenza oku, "" Oku kubhetele. "Ukukhanya ngokwako kusenokungabonakali, kodwa kuyakubonisa izinto njengoko zinjalo. Indlela icacile, xa umntu ethanda ukuyibona-kwaye ayilandele.

Umntu uyimfama, isithulu, esisidenge; ukanti wayebona kwaye eve kwaye bethetha. Umntu uyimfama kwaye woyika ukukhanya, ujonge ebumnyameni. Usisithulu ngenxa yokuba, emamele iimvakalelo zakhe, uqeqesha iindlebe zakhe ukuba ziphazamise. Isidenge ngenxa yokuba uyimfama kwaye isithulu. Uthetha ngama-phantoms kunye neebatarmonies kwaye uhlala e-inarticrate.

Zonke izinto zibonisa ukuba zinjani, kulowo ubonayo. Indoda engaboniyo ayinakuxela ubumbano kwenyani. Zonke izinto zivakalisa imvelaphi yazo kunye namagama, kulowo uveni; umntu ongafundanga akanakukwazi ukwahlula izandi.

Umntu uya kufunda ukubona, ukuba uya kukhangela ekukhanyeni; uya kufunda ukuva, ukuba uyimamele inyaniso; Uya kuba namandla okucacisa intetho, xa eyibona kwaye eyiva. Xa umntu ebona kwaye eva kwaye ethetha ngokungahambelani kwamandla, ukukhanya kwakhe akusayi kusilela kwaye kuya kumazisa ukungafi.
