2020/06/29 家中有道,處處都有道!摸範家庭,才是真正的理想國,如果每一個人都以身示道的話,我們不用講,自然不令而從 。——濟公活佛。(1)家庭安頓好,才無後顧憂之1——南極仙翁慈語:修道如果沒有從根本上治療,沒有對症下藥,吃哪個藥,都沒效!要改變自我、改善自己,不要老是喜歡要求別人,多多要求自己,這樣的修道人,才會 有修道的道格。家庭也是一樣,你如果是客人,一進到別人家門,這個家的氣氛,很快就會感覺到了;這個家和和樂樂的,大家都非常有禮貌,即使是兄弟姐妹之間,也會常説「謝謝你」、「對不起」 、「請你幫我做...」、「麻煩你...」,這個家裡就有道,這家裡有禮。如果不是這樣,在家裡都會擺著一張臉,講話都ㄟㄟㄟ連名帶姓的叫,你就知遒這家常吵架。所以,修道要從人道做起,因在家成佛的機會較快。為什麼呢?家裡的人會折磨你、與你起磨擦、想法有不同的地方,這叫內聖外王並進,天道人道並重。這兩方面都能做得好,將來才能坐上九品蓮台。要行功了愿、渡人講道理,很簡單,可是在家裡要接受磨煉,就很難了。父母親、兄弟姐妹,包括夫妻之間,能磨得和和順順,磨得雙方面都有道理,很難!愈親近的人,愈不懂得禮哦!你們聽了這席道理,回家就開始做,從現在開始要以身示道。

家庭安頓好,才無後顧憂之 (1)

Take care of family and there will be no worries -1

If one does not solve the root of problems when cultivating Tao, then it will not be effective no matter what method you try!

To change ourselves, improve ourselves; not always asking of others but demand of ourselves more. Practicing Tao as such will yield great character.

It is the same for family. If you are a guest, you can quickly sense the ambience of the family once you step into their door.

這個家和和樂樂,大家都非常有禮貌,既使是兄弟姐妹之間,也會常說「謝謝你」、「對不起」、 「請你幫我做……」,「麻煩你……」
This family is harmonious, and are all very polite even between brothers and sisters; who will often say "thank you", "I'm sorry", "please"…

There's Tao in this family, there's courtesy in this home.

如果不是這樣,在家裡都會擺著一 張臉,講話都連名帶姓的叫,你就知道這個家常吵架。
If this is not the case, then there may be little expression in the family, nor do they greet each other when speaking; seeing this you can tell that this family quarrel often.

所以,修道要從人道做起,因 為在家成佛的機會較快,為什麼呢?
Therefore, the practice of Tao should build from the basic interpersonal relationship and politeness. There are more opportunities to cultivate at home, why is that?

At home, our families will test you; come into conflict and different opinions. This is called a sage in the inner sphere, a king in the outer sphere, the heavenly and humane as the same respect.

Both can do well; in the future can sit on the nine-pin lotus terrace.

To practice and propagate Tao is easy, whereas cultivating at home is hard.

父母親、兄弟姐妹,包括夫妻之間, 能磨得和和順順,磨得雙方面都很 有道理,很難!
To successfully work out a harmonious relationship with parents, siblings, and between husband and wife is very difficult!

愈親近的人,愈不懂得禮哦!你們聽了這席道理,回家就開始做, 從現在開始要以示身道。
The closer we are to the person, the less polite we become! Now that you've understood this, go home and start doing; demonstrate yourself as a Tao cultivator.

There was a scholar named Miao Tong during the Han Dynasty. His parents died when he was young, and now live with his brothers.

繆彤是長兄,把三個弟弟照顧得很好, 還幫他們娶了妻子。三個弟弟娶妻之後,紛紛要求分田產, 分家業,而且還屢屢發生爭奪。
Miao Tong is the elder brother, who took good care of the three younger brothers and helped them marry their wives. After the three younger brothers marry their wives, they have asked to divide the farming and family business, and there have been frequent quarrels.

Miao Tong was very angry and very sad after hearing that, he closed the door and cried, he beat himself said:

繆彤呀繆彤!你勤學修身, 學聖賢之道, 為的是要以身作則, 感化周圍的人,能移風易俗。
Miao Tong, Miao Tong! You are diligent in self-cultivation and learning the way of the sages, in order to lead by example and influence the people around you so that you can change the customs.

可是如今連自己家裡的人都沒有辦法說服,更何況去感化別人!繆彤如此自責, 大聲痛哭,弟弟跟弟媳們聽到後很受感動, 都在門外叩頭,向繆彤懺悔、謝罪,希望  長兄能原諒他們。
But now you can't even convince people in your family, let alone influence others! Miao Tong blamed himself so much, he cried loudly, and his brother and daughter-in-law were very touched when they heard it.They all knock outside the door and confessed and apologized to Miao Tong, hoping that the elder brother would forgive them.

In fact, when Miao Tong blamed himself, he did not have any sense of accusation against his younger brothers, but sincerely introspected himself, and touched the conscience of his brother and his sisters-in-law.

In fact, how could the younger brothers not know that Miao Tong is important to their lives; however their reasons were clouded by their desires.

而哥哥這種至誠的反省,又把他們的良  心給喚醒了,後來一家人又團結在一起。
The elder brother's sincere introspection awakened their conscience, and later the family united again.

省思  Reflection

所有家人都是因緣具足才來相聚,沒有毫不相干的人,會與我們成為家人, 只可惜我們常常都忽略了,
All family members can be together because of fate. There are no unrelated people who will become family with us, but unfortunately, we often overlook this fact.

We always think that our family should understand and tolerate us. Only to wait till karma arrives and flood us with regret. However, regret won't bring back the lost family.

結論 Conclusion

1. 修道要從人道做起, 內聖外王要並進。
Practicing Tao should start with humanity and virtues; positivity in mind and actions should go hand in hand.

2. 營造家庭的和樂氣氛,從改變自我開始做起。
Create a harmonious family atmosphere, starting from changing oneself.

Thank you and I love you
