When the elephant meets the dinosaurs

Have you seen an elephant? It is really huge, like looking at a moving wall. Other small animals must be very afraid to see one. To the pussy cat, the little dog and rabbit, this huge monster is absolutely inconceivable. They would scramble for hiding as soon as they see an elephant coming. There is no way they can be friends.

However, everything is relative and always a comparison in this world. Not only is the elephant huge in size, it is also exceptionally strong. It can easily crush us to meat paste with one stamp of its feet. But looking at it from another perspective, what if the elephant meets a dinosaur?

Holy macaroni, the dinosaur must think the elephant very cute, like a live cotton stuffed doll, and very much wants to hug and kiss it, or keeps it as a darling pet for their baby dinosaurs!

So how should we look at an elephant? Should we call it a gigantic, dangerous, awe inspiring, or should we call it peace loving, pacifying, naive and pure? In fact, there is no right or wrong answers. It really depends on how you look at it.

When we relate to people, the same is true. One of my women friends is rumoured by her colleagues as being “a little too bitchy.” When the rumour is heard by her husband, he is startled. The same woman in his eyes is a tame and loving wife who will do anything he wants. She is really like an oasis in a desert to him, and she gives him and the family unlimited supports.

Why then does the same woman look so different to her husband and her colleagues? The answer is very simple. This husband of hers is even more temperamental, quick-tempered, and unpredictable than her.

In other words, to the lady’s colleagues, the woman is an elephant, but to the woman, her husband is the formidable dinosaur. That is why they are happily married.

If the elephant has never met the dinosaur, it will be the greatest among all animals; if the dinosaur has never met the elephant, it will be very lonely.

Such special relationships are known as ‘perfect matches.’ One plus one does not necessarily equal two. Pairing a handsome man with a gorgeous woman does not necessarily bring true and lasting love. On the contrary, negativity negates negativity and generates positivity. When the shrew meets the beast, we have a lasting marriage.

Our parents used to examine the dates of births of would-be couples, or resort to looking at the star formations in astrology to determine whether the couple is compatible. There is much wisdom in this ancient but dying practice.

当恐龙遇上大笨象
你见过大笨象没有?哗,真的很大,相对着一堵活动的墙。其他的小动物,一定更害怕了, 对小猫、小狗、小白兔等来说,更是不可思议, 远远看见要赶快走避,根本没法做朋友。
大笨象不止体积巨大,而且力气极强,等闲可以将我们踩成肉饼,但是换转角度,假如牠有机会给恐龙见到呢?
哗,一定觉得很小巧可爱,项活动毛公仔,恨不得抱在怀里呵护,还可以给恐龙宝宝作宠物。
所以,应该怎样替大笨象定位呢?说牠庞然大物、具威胁性,或说牠善良馴和、天真纯洁,其实一样没错,只看你是从哪一个位置出发。
人与人的相处,一是从比较的来的。
像一位女性朋友,遭同事批评:“略嫌情绪化”。
这话传到她丈夫的耳中,大惊失色,原来在他心目中,妻子不知多温柔体贴、千依百顺,简直像荒漠甘泉,对丈夫和家庭无限量支持与付出。
为什么同样对一个人,同时与丈夫的观感,是有如此大的反差?理由很简单,原来这位宝贝丈夫,比女性朋友更情绪化、喜怒更无常、性格更为激烈。
换句话说,在同事眼中,她是“大象”级数,却不知道,他的丈夫才是更可不怖的“恐龙”, 难怪,这两个人做的成夫妻,而且多年恩爱。
要是大笨象没有遇上恐龙, 相信会威震一方,而要是恐龙没遇上大笨象,亦相信会非常寂寞。
这种世间罕有得良缘,命理学称为“绝配”:壹加壹未必等于二,俊男美女不一定恩爱,反而负负得正,恶女与野兽竟可到白头。
老派人说的“夹八字”、或紫微斗数看“夫妻宫”的星曜组合,精粹正在于此。
