慧眼禪心

明 朗 (CLARITY)

明 朗

「不要刻意去尋找天主。」大師說:「只需觀看,一切自會豁然開朗。」

「應該怎麼觀看呢?」

「當你看任何東西時,就只看眼前所呈現的,勿起他念。」

弟子們大惑不解,於是大師作一淺喻:「當你望月,就儘管觀月,勿觀其他。」

「當我們望月時,除了月亮,還能看到什麼?」

「饑餓的人會看到一團乳酪,戀愛中的人會看到情人的臉。」

 

CLARITY

“Don‘t look for God,” the Master said. “Just look — and all will be revealed.”

“But how is one to look?”

“Each time you look at anything, see only what is there and nothing else.”

The disciples were bewildered, so the Master made it simpler: “For instance: When
you look at the moon, see the moon and nothing else.”

“What else could one see except the moon when one looks at the moon?”

“A hungry person could see a ball of cheese. A lover, the face of his beloved.”

命 運 DESTINY

有個婦人常嘆自己的命運,大師對她說:「你是自己命運的主人。」

「然而,生為女性,却不是我自己能夠作主的。」

「生為女性,並非命,而是個人的運,人的命運如何,得看你如何接受自己的運道,而結出豐盛的果實。」

DESTINY 

To a woman who complained about her destiny the Master said, “It is you who make 
your destiny.” 

“But surely I am not responsible for being born a woman?” 

“Being born a woman isn’t destiny. That is fate. Destiny is how you accept your 
womanhood and-what you make of it.”

和諧之道 HARMONY

和諧之道

 

大師一向不甚注重傳統及成規。

有一囘,他的弟子與自己的女兒發生爭執,弟子一味強調:女人只要順從她丈夫的決定,就算已履行了她們的宗教責任。

大師公開支持那女孩的立場。

 他的弟子十分驚訝這德高望重的大師竟會做出此事。大師對他說:「你該了解,生活就好像是一首樂曲,是由感受及直覺組成,而非靠法律及責任。」


HARMONY For all his traditional ways, the Master had scant respect for rules and for traditions. A quarrel once broke out between a disciple and his daughter because the man kept insisting that the girl conform to the rules of their religion in the choice of her prospective husband. The Master openly sided with the girl. When the disciple expressed his surprise that a holy man would do this, the Master said, “You must understand that life is just like music which is made more by feeling and by instinct than by rules.”
