2020/11/19 德行篇——德性,是圓滿境界。有了德性,不論在聖在凡,皆能處世圓融;即使受苦受毀謗,也能化於平淡。(一)德性,是修身的根本之1——濟公活佛佛慈語:仁者無敵,一個人若有才而無德,便會遭來別人的嫉妒;如果能力強,德行就要愈齊全才行。一個有仁德的人,大家都會心甘情願地跟你在一起。道是本來面目,德是當然的行為,你要學習率性而行,把當然的行為做出來。禮貌是一個人修養的指標,涉及一個人的德性,也表現道的親切與尊貴。所以初步的功夫,要做到「非禮勿視」,道德經不是講「不見可欲,使心不亂」嗎?眼不見心不亂,慢慢的就習以為常了。這一切都要心正,從根本處下手。

(一)德性,是修身的根本之 (1)

Virtue is the foundation of self-cultivation

德性,是圓滿境界。有了德性, 不論在聖在凡,皆能處事圓融;
Having virtue is a perfect state. With virtue, no matter in the field of Saint or Ordinary can treat people and things well;

Even suffering and slander can be dull.

The benevolent are invincible; if a man is talented but lack morality, he will be jealous by others; and if someone's abilities are strong, the more complete his/her virtue should come with to be.

A man of benevolence, everyone will be willing to be with him. People walk in the Tao, what is present is the original true colors; morality is the right behavior should be,

你要學習率性而行, 把當然的行為做出來。
You have to learn to follow the Tao of life, present the behavior you deserve.

Politeness is an indicator of a person's cultivation, which is vital to a person's morality, and also shows the kindness and dignity of the Tao.

所以初步的功夫,要做到「非禮勿視」, 道德經不是講「不見可欲,心不亂」 嗎?
Therefore, the initial level of effort, to achieve is, " insincere do not look at." The Book of Morals does not refer to " staying away from the things that give rise to desire and keeping our hearts from bewildering" is it?

Eyes do not see, the heart is not disordered and slowly become accustomed to. It's all about being right and learning from the most fundamental places.

(tending the roots of classics)

心虛意淨,明心見性,心虛則性現, 不息心而求見性,
Humility in heart, clear conscience, bright heart are the appearance of nature, yet constantly seeking to see nature without peace in heart,

is like looking for the moon in the waves; the pure mind will clear your heart. Seeking to bright heart without knowledge is like looking into a dusty mirror.

Definition of word

Humility in heart: An empty heart without the distraction of thoughts. Peace heart: Stop worrying. To see nature: Enlightened and pure Buddha-nature.

Look for the moon in the waves: is like fishing the moon in water, can't get it. Pure mind: clear conscious.

Not understand the mind: The mind cannot be seen through. Mirror to increase dust: you are only seeing the dust increasing on the mirror but not yourself.


當內心空無一物時,本性就會顯現, 但若心中充滿起心動念,要照見本性,就像「水中撈月」是絕對不可能的事。
When there is nothing in the heart, nature will appear, but if the heart is full of thoughts, it is absolutely impossible to see nature just like " fishing the moon in the water."

人沒有妄想雜念時,心念自然澄清, 不能放下念頭,而想尋求心的清明, 就像在佈滿塵污的鏡子裡,想要看見鏡子的光明,是絕對不可能的事。
When people don't have delusions, their minds naturally clarify, can't let go of thoughts, but want to seek clarity of heart. Just like a mirror full of dust, it is absolutely impossible to see the light of the mirror.


悟道見性,須先明瞭心念, 明瞭心念,須先清淨意識。
To realize Tao and see nature, you must first understand your mind. To understand your mind, you must first purify your consciousness.

修道修心,心安則天下無難事, 辦道盡心,以心為本,即使身處塵世,也能愈辦愈光明。
Cultivate Tao is to cultivate heart, peace of mind means nothing is difficult in the world. Propagate Tao with all your heart and based on it, even in this world, you can get brighter and brighter.


一、修行不在表面,在心上, 每個起心動念都是修行,真正有修行,誰也障礙不了你。
1. Cultivation is not on the surface, it's on the mind. Every thought is a practice. No one could stop you to cultivate Tao, only you
can stop yourself to do so.

二、生命是一種回聲,你把最好的給別人,就會從別人那裡獲得最好的, 反之你愈吝嗇,你就一無所有。
2. Life is an echo, if you give the best to others, you will get the best from others. On the contrary, the more stingy you are, the less you have.
