2020/07/21 安頓身心之法鑰之1——常常持用三寶,心靜,就斷輪迴種。仙怫慈語:修道的路會走得半途而廢,都是因為不知道要安頓自己的身心。要如何讓你的身心安頓?如何讓紛亂的心「不住一念」?不住一念才不落於人世間的對待,才能真正了脫世間的一切束縛,才不會因為別人的好壞而令自己起心動念,更不會因為外在的人事而動搖了自性的清靜、自在、無為。修道要自己幫助自己,同修只是一種借境與鼓勵的作用,不要混亂了本來的正知正念,耽誤了自己。人心變幻莫測,天心若隱若現,要怎樣才能安頓身心呢?懂得「養真」的人,才有辦法拴心猿,鎖意馬,才有辦法回歸清靜、安頓身心,能「養真」,便能「持」恆的「戒」守本心。

安頓身心之法鑰之 (1)

Key to settling the body and mind.-1

Use the three treasures often, be calm, and break off the roots of the reincarnation.

The reason most people often give up on cultivating Tao is because they've neglected to take care of themselves. How to take care of one's body and mind?

How to let the tumultuous heart "not clinging to any thoughts"? Not clinging to any thoughts will free us from falling into the difference of mankind, and therefore truly be free from bondage.

So that our hearts are unmoved by others' right or wrong, or our confidence, purity, and peace be affected by others.

We need to take care of ourselves when cultivating. Fellow Tao practitioners are just acting as supporting role. Do not confuse the original purpose and understanding.

The mind is magical, the heavenly heart is flashing, how can we be able to settle down physically and mentally?

People who know how to "save and nurture true spirits" have a way to manage the confusion, and to return to stillness, settle down physically and mentally.

Being able to "save and nurture true spirits" can be sustained by guarding your true being.

The Analects of Confucius. Li Ren chapter 25

Confucius said:「Whoever virtuous is never alone and always surrounded by company.」

Confucius said: 「 A virtuous person will not be alone, and there must be like-minded people to accompany him.」

此處的「德」為「有德之人」,意思是一個具有良好道德修養的人, 自然能吸引志同道合的朋友。
This 「 virtue 」 refers to a virtuous person. It means a person with good virtue training, naturally can attract like-minded friends.

You are the holy temple host and service personnel seniors in the Tao society, implement cultivate virtues and study classics,

and work hard, cultivate the precepts in the vows, not only to be a good example for members, but also to strengthen the determination to practice Tao.

When you have the unity of knowing and doing, and your words and deeds are full of Tao, you can naturally attract like-minded fellow practitioners to protect Andong Maitreya.

省思 Reflection

Fellow initiates are partners on the way to practice Tao, caring for fellow practitioners,

show the spirit of the eight mutuals( mutual affinity, love, respect, trust, persuasion, advice, assistance, and understanding ) and give play to the power of mutual assistance, mutual trust and love.

因此修道切莫在人事上執著, 人云亦云,犯口業而不自覺。常持三寶,平心靜氣,意守玄關。
Therefore, practice Tao must not be obsessed with personnel matters, say what everybody says, scolding karma without knowing it. Always holds the three treasures, calm your heart, and guard the heavenly portal.

結論 Conclusion

上求佛道,下化眾生; 動時渡人,靜時渡己;
Seek Buddhism up and down to propagates Tao to all the beings; guide people to the Tao in motion, guide yourself in silence;

君子適時,動靜皆宜; 多言數窮,不如守中。
A gentleman adapts to the right time, both dynamic and static; People say a lot, and they often get into trouble. It's better to keep quiet and keep the words in there.
