我要看

終於邁出了這一步。三個月前,當確定機票的最後一鍵敲擊下去時,我木木的,似乎這一切都還很遙遠,似乎那將要遠行的人與我不大相關。隨著出門的日子漸近,不得不實實在在地思想將要開始的孤獨遠行時,幾乎嚇了自己一跳。我真的要去了?那遙遠模糊如同夢一般的嚮往就在那一鍵之下成定局了嗎?曾幾何時,我如此果敢,如此大膽?

遙遠而陌生的耶路撒冷啊,你為何牽動我的心?

今天,出發的時間終於到了。此刻,我已在候機大廳,心中十分惆悵。臨行前花了整個星期的時間,給兩個至關重要的親人分別寫了長信,似乎是將要長久離別,亦似乎是最後的諄囑,想來一定會讓他們納悶不安了。

天父,袮與我同行嗎?昨天晚上及今天早上,有兩次莫名的憂鬱突然襲來,我一邊流淚,一邊大喊:"袮要帶我看什麼?袮要讓我看什麼?讓我看,讓我看,讓我看吧!" 似乎是袮逼著我去的一樣。

我想看什麼?主,袮出生的地方?袮傳道的地方,袮受死的地方,袮升天的地方?我去了,便能看見。那裡的人們會告訴我,這是什麼,那是什麼,這裡發生了什麼,那裡發生了什麼。袮腳踏過的,袮手摸過的,我都能去,也能摸。有人可能會說這是朝聖的心態,拜遺物的傾向,異教徒的情結。我無法辯解,是的,近些年來,我對那地方魂系夢繞,充滿眷戀,勝過世上任何地方。我知道自己沒有充足的理由讓那關心我的人,以及好奇的人滿意,我為什麼要去那裡,而且孑然一身。

瞞著所有的人,我悄悄地走了,以免徒然解釋自己都不清楚緣由,更想牢牢的守護心裡的寧靜和感動。

然而,朦朧中知道,袮要我去的原因,遠遠超過這些。是什麼?是什麼呢?告訴我, 告訴我! 我多次祈求,以至於焦慮衝擊著我。即便我不去,袮不是也可以讓我知道一切嗎?袮不是無所不能,無處不在嗎?

我尋求袮,袮答應我,袮是信守諾言的神,袮是全地的主,難道我必須到那裡去見袮?我可以在我的居所遇見袮;可以在林間小道上遇見袮;更可以在袮的書信裡遇見袮。我為什麼如此急切、如此渴慕、如此著迷,似乎袮要在那裡召見我,那獨一的地方,那神聖的土地。耶路撒冷啊!

求袮與我同去

昨天在機場辦理登機牌時,一位工作人員,美麗的小姐例行公事地問我:"你的目的地是哪裡?" 我說以色列首都特維拉夫。她雙眼大睜,"哇,你真幸運。我一直渴望去看看耶穌出生的地方。今天早上還在想什麼時候去呢。" 我也不由的挑起眉毛,第一個知道我行程的人竟然與我有著同樣的願望!

因時間還早,辦理登機牌的人寥寥無幾。她借機問我許多問題: 如何計畫,如何安排,與誰同去等等。我張口結舌,窮於對付。如何能向她解釋對於這麼一個重大的行程,除了昨天才定了四天的旅館外,我完全沒有計劃,沒有安排。

"你隻身一人?" 她盯住不放。

"不,我有朋友同去。"

哦主,甚願我沒有撒謊,如果袮與我同去的話。

我等候袮的帶領,除了對那片土地的眷戀以外,我渴望更多更多。因為我的心被激動時,她無聲地對我說,你來,到耶路撒冷來,獨自一人。我以為,那是袮在呼喚我。

的確,是袮在呼喚我,別人可能會不以為然,我豈能懷疑。聽憑呼喚,我踏出了這一步,除了簡便的行李以外,形單只影。朦朦朧朧中尚抱有希望,恍恍忽忽中亦感到平安。我等待袮將要展示給我的,急不可待的想知道,那會是什麼?

在倫敦停留了 18 個小時。這個城市真是不可思議,古老的街景,宏偉的教堂,美麗的泰晤士河,整個城市到處充滿歷史文化,極具震撼力。如果是十年前來,我一定欣賞陶醉不已。倫敦,巴黎,曾是我最好奇、最嚮往的地方。但是此時此刻,我的心被更深的渴望所充滿,再也沒有她們的空間了。

這一天,遠行的第一天,我在這個著名而又陌生的城市一路錯誤判斷,大受挫折,直到晚上11半才找到旅館住了下來。主啊,下面的日子都在袮手中,袮知道我愚鈍不堪。

明天,就要到以色列了,後天,一定在耶路撒冷了。我的心如同去會見戀人一般的迫切和慌亂。袮引領我前面的路吧,若是不然,這一切有什麼意義呢。
