2021年1月31日,星期天,我收到了我的朋友雷扎·马内什(Reza Manesh)发来的一条短信。雷扎告诉我,他的书“差不多写完了”,希望我“以批判的眼光进行评论,并提供反馈,使它更好。”
我看了草稿。正是这本书让我更善于通过这些半是反思半是回忆录的精彩作品来发现生活的乐趣。
今天,雷扎(他喜欢被这样称呼)是医学教育的行业领导者。正如他在最近出版的《在医学中寻找快乐》一书中所说的那样,这段旅程并不容易。但是通过学习和发展三个基本属性人文主义,谦逊,和对成长的渴望,他在医学中发现了乐趣,我认为在生活中也是如此。
在医学中寻找快乐并不关乎任何特定的目的地。我把这本书读了几遍,确信它不仅仅是关于医学的。它关乎真实、人性、谦卑和脆弱。雷扎让我想起了沃尔特·惠特曼的名言:“我是巨大的。”我包含了许多。”这是一个通过雷扎的故事展现了我们共同的人性、谦卑和智慧的故事。我所注意到的智慧体现了雷扎自己的痛苦和学习时刻的道德元素,这来自于对他人脆弱的同情。
《在医学中寻找快乐》应该是每个人的必读书目,尤其是我们这一代人。它提醒我们,我们不应该追求:一份工作的金钱,赞美,模仿,工作头衔,影响,或捷径学习。雷扎提醒我们要追求:与所爱的人共度美好时光,健康的生活方式,能带来快乐的工作,帮助他人的方式,学习成长和表达感激的机会。
书中的主角不是雷扎,也不是他的病人,也不是其他医生。是AGHA JOON(波斯波斯语中祖父的意思,雷扎的祖父)。他不是医生。他是一个普通人,但他有一些不寻常的地方。
这本书以AGHA JOON的诗开始。这只是提醒我们,我们读诗是因为世界不仅仅是事实、法律和现实。生命确实太短暂了,AGHA JOON和Reza提醒我们,也许诗歌能让生命持续更长一点。所以我们都能找到快乐…

英文原文:

Finding JOY in Medicine
We all can learn a great deal from reading great writers

On Sunday, January 31st, 2021, I received a text message from my friend,  Reza Manesh.  Reza informed me that he was ‘almost done with his book’ and would like me to “review with a critical eye and provide feedback to make it better.”  

I did review the draft. But it was the book that made me better at finding joy in life through the fantastic work that is part reflection and part memoir.

Today Reza (as he likes to be called) is a leading voice in medical education.  As he tells in his recently published book – Finding JOY in Medicine – the journey was not easy.  But through learning and developing three essential attributes humanism, humility, and desire for growth – he has discovered joy in medicine, and I would argue in life too.  

Finding JOY in medicine is not about any particular destination.  Having read the book several times, I am convinced it is not just about medicine.  It is about authenticity, humanity, humility, and vulnerability.  Reza reminds me of Walt Whitman’s quote, “I am large. I contain multitudes.”  This is a story of multitudes of our shared humanity, humility, and wisdom through the story of Reza.  The wisdom that I have noticed is the one that embodied moral elements out of Reza’s very own moment of suffering and learning, which comes from compassionate regard for the fragility of others.   

Finding Joy in Medicine should be required reading for everyone, particularly my generation.  It is a reminder that we should not chase: a job for money, compliments, imitations, job titles, influence, or shortcuts to learn.  Reza reminds us to pursue: quality time with loved ones, a healthy lifestyle, work that brings joy, ways to help others, opportunities to learn and grow and show gratitude.  

The main character in the book is not Reza, or his patients, or other doctors.  It’s AGHA JOON (Persian-Farsi for grandfather – Reza’s grandfather).  He was not a doctor.  He was an ordinary man, and there was just something extraordinary about him.  

The book starts with AGHA JOON’s poem.  This is just a reminder that we read poetry because the world is more than the facts, laws, and realities.  Life is indeed way too short, and AGHA JOON and Reza remind us that perhaps poems will make it last a bit longer. So we can all find JOY…
