2020/12/19(四)坦蕩、平常的心,才能隨遇而安之2——良田,指的是我們的一顆心,它主宰我們的一身,因此,做事若心不在焉,則不會成功。佛家所說的「掃三心飛四相」,儒家說的「三省其身、四勿其心」,在在皆指此心。修持若能保持一顆平常心,心中就有所得,而追求人生的目標,或生命的意義,也在在都靠此心,其中最重要的是——踏實。德經說:「多言數窮,不如守中」,就是強調踏實的重要,修道人要踏實才能久遠。


(四)坦蕩、平常的心,才能隨遇而安之 (2)

Be open-hearted and forthright, have an ordinary and humble heart so that we will be able to adapt to different circumstances.

Untitled Document

濟公活佛慈語:良田,指的是我們的一顆心,它主宰我們的一身,
Fertile farmland refers to our hearts which also governs our body,

因此,做事若心不在焉,則不會成功, 佛家所說的「掃三心飛四相」,
Therefore, if we are not attentive and absent-minded when performing our task, we will not be successful. Buddhists call this sweeping the three hearts and get rids of four form.

儒家說的「三省其身、四勿其心」, 在在皆指此心。
Confucianism said that " examine and reflect oneself on three points, avoid four kinds of unruly heart" are referring to this heart.

修持若能保持一顆平常心,心中就有所得,而追求人生的目標,或生命的意義,也在在都靠此心,
If cultivation can help to keep your heart ordinary, then you have already benefited. The pursuit of your goal and meaning in life will also depend on it.

其中最重要的是──踏實。道德經說:「多言數窮,不如守中」,
One of the most important things is – to stay steadfast. The Moral scripture says:" People who speak many words often make mistakes, they might as well observe neutrality and keep their words in their hearts.

就是強調踏實的重要, 修道人踏實才能久遠。
These are to emphasize the importance of steadfastness, Tao's practitioner who knows how to steadfast can go a long way .

故事
Story

《三國演義》中「楊修之死」, 就是一個典型的實例。
The death of Yang Xiu in{ Three Kingdoms) is a typical example.

楊修自恃聰明,口無遮攔,在曹操面前一再顯示自己,引起曹操的注意和忌恨。
Yang Xiu, counting on his intelligence, would speak without restrain and consideration and make his presence felt in front of Cao Cao. This caused Cao Cao to take notice of him and dislike him out of jealousy.

曹操出兵漢中進攻劉備時,在斜谷界口被困住,進退兩難,因此吃飯時看著碗中的雞肋有感而發。
When Cao Cao sent his troops to attack Liu Bei in Hanzhong, they were trapped at the mouth of an inclined gorge and could neither retreat nor advance forward. When Cao Cao was having his meals he became emotional when he saw the chicken ribs in his bowl.

正巧夏侯惇入帳,稟請夜間口號。 曹操隨口答道:「雞肋,雞肋。」 於是,夏侯惇以「雞肋」傳於眾官。
At that same moment, Xiahou Dun happened to walk in and asked Cao Cao for the night password. Cao Cao replied casually:" Chicken ribs, chicken ribs" As a result, Xiahou Dun spread the words to all the officers telling them that the password was" chicken ribs, chicken ribs"

楊修見上面傳下「雞肋」二字, 便教隨行軍士收拾行裝,準備歸程。
When Yang Xiu heard the words" chicken ribs" he told his accompanying soldiers to begin packing up and prepare to leave and return.

夏侯惇得知大吃一驚,問楊修:「你為何要收拾行裝?」
Xiahou Dun was alarmed and asked Yang Xiu why he was packing up and preparing to leave?

楊修說:「雞肋,吃起來沒有肉,丟了又可惜。而現在,進兵不能勝利,退兵恐人恥笑,在這裡沒有益處,
Yang Xiu replied: " Well, chicken ribs have no meat but to throw them away would be a waste. The situation we are in is like the chicken ribs, we cannot win if we move forward and we will be humiliated if we retreat. There is no benefit in remaining here either"

不如早日回去。我斷定明日魏王必然班師還朝,所以先行收拾行裝,免得臨走時慌亂。」
We might as well return early. I am sure King Wei will also withdraw his troops and return. This is why I order for things to be packed to avoid chaos for when we are ready to go.

於是,夏候惇與軍中的諸將領都開始準備回去。
Therefore, Xiahou Dun and his commanding troops began to get ready to return home.

曹操得知後大怒,傳來楊修:「你怎麼敢造謠生事,動亂軍心!」隨即喝令刀手將楊修推出去斬了。
Cao Cao was furious when he heard what was happening. He summoned Yong Xiu for questioning:" How dare you start a rumor to stir up trouble and unsettle the army? He ordered Yang Xiu to be executed.

省思
Reflection

20世紀著名的小說家海明威有一句名言:
Hemingway, the famous novelist of the 20th century. There is a famous saying:

「我們花了兩年學會說話,卻要花上六十年來學會閉嘴」。
It took us two years to learn how to speak, but it took us sixty years to learn how to shut up.

楊修的才學智慧的確令人佩服, 壞就壞在他說了不該由他說的話而招了殺身之禍。
Yang Xiu was admired for his wisdom and talent in learning. However, he had the bad habit of saying things that weren't his to say. This resulted in his own execution at the end.
