鏡中的男人The Man in The Mirror

  因為巴當艾(Batang Ai)補選,占瑪欣博士(Dr James Jemut Masing)頻頻在媒體上亮相,上周(15日)詩華日報曾刊登他的談話,表示只是部落客反國陣,不過達雅基層仍然支持國陣的;不過他進一步說這些反對國陣的部落客等人士,乃是國陣的鏡子。
  他說不要因為鏡子所呈現的影像不佳,臉上有污等等問題,就打破鏡子,而是要善用鏡子。公正黨及反對黨就像鏡子般讓人看得更全面。因此,不要忽視他們,因為他們能夠讓你知道你的錯誤,而應該正面看待......。
  這位曾是砂拉越達雅族群最早獲得人類學博士的占瑪欣,是政壇的常青樹,他來詩巫一定要吃乾拌麵,1989年在下曾訪問他,健談,風趣,大家談得很投機;專稿於當年3月18及19日刊登在馬來西亞日報。因為明閣事件,當時他是反對黨的達雅黨內任高職,後來又回到國陣懷抱中。又後來,達雅黨鬧分裂,現是人民黨的主席。1998年他把其印成書分成兩冊的博士論文:The coming of the Gods(An Iban Invocatory Chant of the Baleh River Region, Sarawak),送一套給衛理報,並親筆簽名!
  今天(25日)報載他評論公正黨候選人格朗曾在當地出任5屆及22年的國會議員,在國陣旗下服務卻沒帶來地方上的改變。不知,這位黨主席是不是自知之明,他本身在國陣旗下那么多年,又對達雅族群帶來多少改變呢!?他有沒有從鏡子中看清自己的面貌呢?巴當艾一帶的伊班人是婆羅洲遷移抵步的最早期的地區之一,因為補選成為全國焦點!對於國陣而言,許勝不訴敗;對於公正黨而言,則是試金石!由於地區內陸,純樸的居民正面臨金錢及政治意識形態等會在今後兩個星期沖擊著人性!
Dr James Masing, whose early education had been in Methodist schools at Kapit and Sibu.He got his BA(with some study of anthropology)at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and obtained MA in anthropology at the Australian National University.After the conferring of a PhD degree by the same University in 1981, Dr Masing returned to Sarawak. Since 1983 he has represented the Baleh constituency in the Sarawak state Assembly for more than 25 years till now.But the party he represented change time to time, now he is the chairman of PRS.
There will be a straight fight between BN Vs PKR in the Batang Ai election.
Masing comment the anti-BN bloggers as a mirror, shows the problems of BN.I hope he can see clearly the image in the mirror.
  日前看了一半的The Man In the Mirror,由Patrick Morley所寫,提及男人的壓力及困境,
並以本身尋求人生價值和意義的曲折經歷分享,及其對男人一生中可能遇到的問题,包括身份、人際關係、財務、時間、性情等,切入男性生活處境,解決人生24大問題。《鏡中的男人》幫助每個男人都更上一層樓,迎接更美好的生活品質!
The Man in the Mirror : Solving the 24 Problems Men Face, invites men to take a probing look at their identities, relationships, finances, time, temperament, and integrity, and then directs them to take the first time step toward lasting change.

  除非要上台結領帶,在下結婚不久至今20多年很少照鏡子了,所以這本書沒看完,鏡子也沒得照,馬不知臉長,猴不曉臉醜......這是在下的鏡外人真相!

James Masing was in MSS from Form I to Form 6 and interacted with many fellow students. At that time he was a different person - kind and helpful and no doubt a Christian leader. His first degree was sponsored by the Crusade Scholarship.
There is a Chinese saying - know the man and the face but don't know the heart. The result of 25 years of politics?'
Definitely a mirror cannot reflect the heart.
