第六考:是否已破財貨的形相?之3

An Dong Maitreya Hill morning lesson


呂祖純陽慈語若是你們遇到前面那些考,考到這裡,你們的道心已經不在,還談什麼成仙作佛!
If it were you who is faced with the tests, your heart that insist on practicing Tao may no longer exist, needless to say, to become a Buddha!

所以要認得清楚什麼叫做形相,形相假相都是要運用的,怎麼運用呢?
We must understand what is the visible form, and how to use this superficial form.

要幫助你們修辦道的,所以一切東西、財物、形象,都是這樣。
It is meant to help you practice, propagate the Tao, the same function as property, and image.

假如你還計較人家用了我多少糖,人家用了我多少鹽,人家拿了我什麼東西沒還,
If you're still counting how much sugar and salt someone else has used and thought about who borrowed something that hasn't been returned,

那麼修辦道你就看不清楚遠景,修道你看不清楚這天地間為什麼要造化萬物,造化萬物來就是要給你們運用,
Then you won't be able to see clearly while propagating Tao with such attitude. You won't be able to comprehend why matters exist in this world, which is for us to apply.

讓你們運用在辦道上,運用在接引眾生上,你們反而變成納為己有, 馬上我執又多一種。
The property lets you use it in the propagating Tao, to save the soul of people if you take the property for your own, the more ego you are going to have.

所以心放下就沒有考驗,你的心放下,你不在乎這些形象,拿去了就拿去用吧!
So there is no test to the heart lets go. Your heart is open, and you won't care about these images. These properties should be used, let people take it!

人家一定是拿去用,有人把你的東西偷去拿去砸嗎?沒有這麼費功夫的吧!
Someone else must be using it, someone stealing your stuff just to smash it? There is no need to spend so much effort!

所以東西是流通物,眾生要就給他用,只要對他們有好處,只要他們用得上,只要他們滿意對不對?
So things are in circulation, and we'll give them it. As long as it's good for them and it works, it's satisfying for them, right?

所以你們計較什麼?在乎什麼?你們的心要作主。
So what do you care about? You have to play the master of your heart.

所以今天你們的親人是不是可以置之度外?你們的財貨是不是可以看得輕、看得淡?
Can your loved ones be placed outside the priority today? Can your property be seen as unimportant and light?

這個就要很大的魄力了。如果有一天佛堂被燒了,那怎麼辦?燒就燒嘛!
This realm is going to be a lot of courage. What if one day the holy temple is burned? Now that it's burned, let's open it up!

對於咱們自己的修心來講,這是形相,好一個破相,可是對於眾生, 因為眾生還執相,所以我要引導, 明白嗎?
For our own practice, it happens to be an opportunity to break the image. But for all beings, because they are still attached to the image, so we have to guide them to the right track, understand?

引導,記得剛才吾說用語言、文字、形象來引導。
It's guidance! Remember what I said earlier, by language, text, images to guide.

所以你們要用語言、文字、形象去引導眾生,要「應機說法」
So you also have to use language, text, images to guide all beings, to " promise the opportunity to speak the morality "

不要你自己已目空一切了,你就說一切都是空,要人家空、空、空,
Don't say everything is void just because you despised everything. And you are going to lead others to follow you to say a lot of uncertain voids, voids, and voids.

有沒有聽過一句話:「修道前見山是山,見水是水,
Have you ever heard a sentence: " Before practice, see the mountain is the mountain, see the water is the water,

唯有悟道以後才會了解,這個見山還是山,見水還是水。」
only after the understanding of the Tao will understand, this mountain still the mountain is, and the water still the water is."

人生的三個境界-宋代的青原行思大禪師說過一段話:
In the Song Dynasty, Master Qingyuan Xingda said something:

老僧三十年前來參禪時,見山是山,見水是水;
When I (the  old monk ) came to Zen thirty years ago, I saw mountains as mountains and water as  water;

及至後來親見知識,有個入處,見山不是山,見水不是水;
when I start comprehending the knowledge myself, mountains are no longer just mountains, and water not simply just water;

而今得個體歇處,依然「見山還是山,見水還是水。」
Today alas, I  now see mountains still as mountains, and water still as water."

第一境界:看山是山,看水是水
The first realm: looking at mountains is mountains, looking at water is water

一個人剛開始來到這個世界,內心是純潔無暇的,對待任何接觸的新鮮事物都很好奇。
A person has just come to this world, and his heart is pure and immaculate, be curious about any  new things you come into contact with.

別人告訴你,眼前靜止的叫做山,你就認識了山;遠處流動的叫做水,你就認識了水。
Someone tells you that the one in front of you is called the mountain, and you learn that's a mountain; the water flowing in the distance is called water, and you know water.

你就會不假思索的以為眼見為實,認為眼睛看到的東西就是真實的。
You will think without thinking that what you see is true and that what you see is real.

第二境界:看山不是山,看水不是水
The second realm: seeing mountains is not mountains, watching  water  is not water.

隨著年齡漸長,經歷的世事也漸多,遇過無數困難和挫折後,你會發現這個世界越來越複雜,
As we get older, we experience more and more things, after countless difficulties and setbacks, you will find that the world is getting  more  and more complicated,

不是想像中的簡單,經常是黑白顛倒,是非混淆,你逐漸了解人生的深意,
not simple as  imagined, often black and white upside down, right and wrong confused, you gradually understand the meaning of life,

這時看山也感慨,看水也嘆息,不願意再輕易相信什麼。
at this time, watching the mountains is sighing, watching the water is sighing, and you are not willing to believe anything anymore.

第三境界:看山還是山,看水還是水
The third realm: see mountains as mountains,and see water as water once more

大多人都只達到了第二境界,就迎來了人生的終點。
Most people have just reached the second realm and ushered in the end of their lives.

傾盡其一生的時間,最後發現沒能實現自己的人生理想, 只抱憾終身。忙忙碌碌一輩子,
Exhausted all  his life, busy life, and finally found that he could not achieve his ideal of life, only regretted his life.

而有些人通過自己的苦苦修行,把高度提升到第三重境界, 看山還是山,看水還是水。
Exhausted all  his life, busy life, and finally found that he could not achieve his ideal of life, only regretted his life.

結論
Conclusion

真正的強者懂得從逆境中突破,學習新東西,並從容接受生活給予的一切,更是從中不斷學習。
The real strong know how to break through adversity and learn new things, and calmly accept everything that life gives, and continue to learn from it.
