Sutra begins in your heart, clearly and peacefully

(二)打破執著,拋開習慣之 (1)

Breakaway from selfish persistence and get rid of such bad habits.

濟公活佛慈語:每一件事情,其實都沒有所謂的好與壞, 只在於你的心念想法,不要去執著於什麼是好、什麼是不好!
There is no such thing as good and bad in everything. It is purely our mind's perception. Do not be obsessed and persistent in trying to determine what is good and what is bad.

What is meant by carefree or unrestrained? When you can let go from deep in your heart, all your selfish and self-centered persistence will disappear. You will even forget your self-importance. This is the True Carefree in life.

What you see now is a skillful hand. It is a lady's hand. But to me, there is no differentiation.

Just like how you all like to form the opinion that females are not capable or suited to do rough and heavy tasks and males are not capable of being gentle and refined like the females. These are all your own individual perceptions.

The true Tao cultivator is the one who is capable of viewing everything as an emptiness.

當你看空一切的時候,就不會執著在人我的看法、環境的順逆, 你才能成為一個真正自在的人。
When we see everything as empty, we do not become selfishly persistent with our own perceptions of our environment and all other things. The other people will also behave likewise. Only then can you become a truly carefree person.

《心經》云: 經典之美「心無罣礙,無罣礙故,無有恐怖, 遠離顛倒夢想,究竟涅磐。」
The Heart Sutra says: The heart has hindered no reasons for any hindrance, there is no feeling of fear or horror, stay away from any illogical and delusional thoughts and desires a Nirvana will be ultimate outcome for all.

How do we have an unhindered heart? We do so by telling ourselves that in the beginning, our true nature was free, pure, and empty.

以「緣起性空」觀照自己的生活, 並時時訓練自己這顆心,放下執著,不要用「自以為是」的感覺去對待。
We use this awareness to carefully observe and conduct our daily life, constantly learn to let go of our selfish persistence. Avoid self-centered and self-righteous attitude when dealing with others.

Learn to forgive, not to take heart, not be fussy, and not to clamber to power and profits when dealing with external phenomena. when it is time to eat and sleep, do so freely.

Be apprehensive of the true sense of reality for each moment in time, anytime and anywhere. Let the past be gone and do not have wishful thinking for the future.

This true feeling will ascertain that we will know the true taste of Tao when it becomes part of our daily life.

A person who cultivates in Tao understands life. Cultivating our True Nature is not limited and restricted by space or time. We are able to put it into practice anytime in our daily life,

在行、住、坐、臥之間,放下自己的固執、是非、計較的觀念,每一個念頭都要非常積極面對自己,就是修 行。
for example, while walking, living, sitting, or simply lying around. Let go of our stubbornness, contention for right and wrong, fuss over trifles, and vigorously come to terms with ourselves. This is Tao cultivation.

結論:一、靜思語:執著自己的想法是心被自己綁住, 放下心的執取,煩惱就會消失。
The reason we become selfishly persistent with only our own thoughts or opinions is that our hearts are bounded by ourselves and not set free. Let loose of this hold, all the worries will disappear.

Create happiness and we will feel happy, create worries and we will feel worried. Our heart is the source of all dharma.
