2020/10/14 正見(1)——如果你的一生都走在——調整步伐、安住正念、心宅清淨的路上,就一定有足夠的智慧去格物修身,看待榮辱也不過是過眼雲眼罷了。——南極仙翁詞慈語:眾生的執著心重,私我心強,任何事情都以自我為出發點;有了我執我相,就有貪、嗔、痴三毒憂擾身心,不會顧及他人,日積月累出許多業障,那時想要破除執著就難了。該怎麼辦呢?首先要聽聞真理,多體悟人生的無常,待體悟深切、寬廣,慈悲心發露出來之後,正見就產生,此時才不容易造下惡業。一個沒有正見的人,天天都過著無明的日子,無明指引人趨向墜落,嗎?所以,當你的生命遇到難題時,首先要懂得鎮定,更要強烈地告訴自己:「此刻就是收束一心,千萬不要再攀緣。」因為攀緣只會導致更大的劫難。鎮定之功在於天理良心當家,你時時都天理良心當家,必能二六主敬存誠,慎守正道而萬無一失。最怕的是,每天都活在顛倒妄想中而不自知!既無法洞悉來往的果報與緣起,也體會不到無常苦空的真諦,終日沉淪在名爭利奪、愛恨惱怒的慾念中,不懂得要進德修業、福慧雙積。要知道,業是一種引力,如果沒有正見做靠山,當然就隨業而轉,招致可怕的禍報。


Untitled Document Positive Insights

If you've been walking through life – by adjusting your pace, have a positive outlook, and clearing your mind;

You will have enough wisdom to get rid of materialistic desires to cultivate your moral character and to look at honor and humiliation as fleeting senses.

All beings are persistent, self- centered, and think selfishly;

Having an attachment to our own ego will result in greed, hate, and delusion. One will not be considerate of others and hence will accumulate much karma. By the time one becomes aware and wants to change, it will be very difficult.

What about this situation? First of all, listen to the truth, understand the impermanence of life. When your understanding is deep and broad, compassion will emerge, and the positive insight will happen.

此時才不容易造下惡業。一個沒有正見的人,天天都過著無明的日子,無明指引人趨向墜落,懂 嗎?
It's not easy to have karma at this point. Every day is a troubling day for someone who does not have positive insights. Trouble leads to one's downfall, understood?

So, when your life encountered difficulties, first learn to remain calm, but also to strongly tell yourself: " focus the heart and do not let it trail outward."

Because the heart trailing outward will lead to greater difficulties. The key to remaining calm lies in letting kindness take control. If your kindness is always in control,

Then you can easily stay on the course of Tao with respect and sincerity without fail. What's most unfortunate is that one is always in delusion every day and unaware.

Unable to comprehend the cause and effect of past and present karma, as well as unable to understand the true meaning of impermanence, suffering, and emptiness; in the end remains stuck in the struggle for fame and power, love and hate, emotion and desire.

不懂得要進德修業、福慧雙積。要知道,業是一種引力,如果沒有正見做靠 山,當然就隨業而轉,招致可怕的禍報。
At the same time also do not know how to cultivate virtue and wisdom. You must know, karma is a kind of gravitational pull. If you do not have a strong support, then you will be easily influenced by karma, leading to unfortunate results.

The beauty of scripture-Book of Rites‧ Jing Jie

The man of virtue is careful at the start; knowing that the difference of a millimeter will lead to an error of up to a thousand miles later.

The man of virtue values the beginning of things. If there is a slight deviation in the beginning, the result will be a thousand miles difference.


Tang Dynasty Poet Bai Juyi:「Think carefully, work diligently」

The cultivator should respect the beginning and end carefully, be united in mind, and not deviate from the right path for any moment, so as not to change according to karma.


Old Man of the South Pole's compassion: I always ask for myself, that adultery is not born in my heart, right and wrong are not out of my mouth.

念念清淨純善,言言誠懇無欺,多為別人付出,福慧就在其中增添,少為自己爭 奪,牽纏定於此處消滅。
The mind is pure and kind, and the words are sincere and not deceived. Give more to others, the merit and wisdom will increase in it, fight less for yourself, the entanglement will be eliminated here.

Help others enthusiastically, don't dislike the poor and humble. Carefully observe the deficiencies in the city, keep yourself safe, and do not demand wealth. Experience the fullness of life with your heart,

不念舊惡,知足感恩,寧靜的心靈,散發溫馨的氣息,不但做自己的貴人,更做父母 子女 先生 太太 親戚 朋友
do not remember the unhappiness of the past, be content with gratitude, a peaceful mind, and exude a warm breath. Not only to be your own noble person, but also to be your parents, children, husband, wife, relatives, friends,

and noble persons of all living beings to benefit yourself, the people, and the world.
