有一個簡單但卻極為有效的方法,可以讓你在生命中找到空間,它也是與呼吸密切相關的。你會發現,當能夠感受到空氣細微地在身體進出,還有胸部和腹部的起伏時,你也同時覺知到了你的內在身體。你的注意力可能從呼吸轉移到對內在生命力的感受,進而擴散到全身。

艾克哈特‧托勒在《當下的力量》這本書裡曾經提到過一段生命經驗,他說自己在三十歲之前一直處在持續性的焦慮狀態,由潛意識深處升起的對窒寂和"不存在"的渴望,強烈地淹沒了想要活下去的求生本能。某日凌晨時分,他在極致的恐懼中驚醒過來,心中不斷地湧出一個念頭︰"我活不下去了,我再也受不了自己了。"

在集體的層面來說,「我們是對的,他們是錯的」的這種心態,特別深植於世界上的某些地區。在這些地區中,兩個國家、種族、部落、宗教或是意識形態之間的衝突是長久的、極端的和地方性的。衝突的雙方都認同於他們自己的觀點,自己的「故事」,也就是說,與他們的思想認同。雙方都無法瞭解:不同的觀點或是另外版本的故事也可能存在,而且同樣地有理。

除了簡單而且可驗證的事實範疇之外,堅持「我對你錯」對人際關係以及國家、種族和宗教間的互動來說,是一件很危險的事。

事實的存在是毋庸置疑的。如果你說:「光速比音速快」而另一個人抱持相反的說法,那麼,顯然你是對的,而他是錯的。只要觀察閃電比雷聲先到的現象,就可以確認這個事實。所以不但你是對的,而且你確信你是對的。有沒有任何小我摻雜其中呢?也許有,但卻不必然。如果你只是簡單地陳述你以為是真的事實,小我並不會包含在其中,因為在此並沒有認同的問題。認同於什麼呢?認同於心智和一個心理的立場。

很多人對於他們腦袋裡的聲音是如此的認同—那個不間斷的、不自主的、強迫性的思想續流,還有隨之而來的情緒—我們可以形容這些人是被他們的心智佔據的。如果你對此毫無覺知,就會認為你自己就是那個思考者。這就是小我的心智。我們稱它為「小我」(egoic),因為在每個思想—每個記憶、每個闡釋、意見、觀點、反應和情緒裡,都有一個自我感(小我感)在其中。從靈性的角度來說,這就是所謂的無意識。你的思想,你心智的內容,當然是被過去所制約的,過去是指:你的教養、文化、家庭背景等。你心智所有活動的最核心包含了一些重複和持續的思想、情緒和反應模式,這些都是你最強烈認同的。這個實體就是小我的本身。

情緒反應(reactivity)和怨氣(grievances)

當首次發現,在你之內居然有個實體需要定期地尋求負面情緒和不幸時,你也許會很震驚。你需要更多的覺知,才能在自己身上看到痛苦之身,而在別人身上認出它是比較容易的。一旦那種不快樂的情緒掌控了你,你不但不想停止,反而還想讓其他人和你一樣地悲慘,好以他們負面的情緒反應為食。

你要平安。沒有人不要平安的。但是在你之內卻有別的東西想要戲劇事件,想要衝突。你此刻可能無法感受得到。可能需要借由某件事的發生、甚或只是一個思想,來觸動你內在的反應:例如,有人對你多方責怪、不認同你、侵犯你的領域、質疑你做事的方法、對金錢上的爭執等等。這個時候,你是否感受到那股湧向你的巨大力量—恐懼的力量,有時候是隱藏在憤怒或敵意之下的恐懼?

受苦會驅使你往內心深處走去。矛盾的是,受苦是由認同於外相造成的,但是受苦也會減少對外相的認同。受苦大部分都是小我造成的,但受苦最終會導致小我的隕滅。不過,你必須要有意識地受苦,這種情形才會發生。

Here is a spiritual practice that will bring empowerment and creative expansion into your life.Make a list of a number of everyday routine activities that you perform frequently.Include activities that you may consider uninteresting,boring,tedious,irritating,or stressful.But don't include anything that you hate or detest doing.That's a case either for acceptance or for stopping what you do.The list may include traveling to and from work,buying groceries,doing your laundry,or anything that you find tedious or stressful in your daily work.Then,whenever you are engaged in those activities,let them be a vehicle for alertness.

Behind the sometimes seemingly random or even chaotic succession of events in our lives as well as in the world lies concealed the unfolding of a higher order and purpose.

The ego creates separation,and separation creates suffering.The ego is therefore clearly pathological.Apart from the obvious ones such as anger,hatred,and so on,there are other more subtle forms of negativity that are so common they are usually not recognized as such,for example,impatience,irritation,nervousness,and being"fed up.」

In each person's life there comes a time when he or she pursues growth and expansion on the level of form.This is when you strive to overcome limitation such as physical weakness or financial scarcity,when you acquire new skills and knowledge,or through creative action bring something new into this world that is life-enhancing for yourself as well as others.This may be a piece of music or a work of art,a book,a service you provide,a function you perform,a business or organization that you set up or make a vital contribution to.

Astronomers have discovered evidence to suggest that the universe came into existence fifteen billion years ago in a gigantic explosion and has been expanding ever since.Not only has it been expanding,but it is also growing in complexity and becoming more and more differentiated.Some scientists also postulate that this movement from unity to multiplicity will eventually become reversed.The universe will then stop expanding and begin to contract again and finally return to the unmanifested,the inconceivable nothingness out of which it came—and perhaps repeat the cycles of birth,expansion,contraction,and death again and again.For what purpose?"Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing?"asks physicist Stephen Hawking,realizing at the same time that no mathematical model could ever supply the answer.

Whenever there is beauty,kindness,the recognition of the goodness of simple things in your life,look for the background to that experience within yourself.But don't look for it as if you were looking for something.You cannot pin it down and say,「Now I have it,"or grasp it mentally and define it in some way.It is like the cloudless sky.It has no form.It is space; it is stillness,the sweetness of Being and infinitely more than these words,which are only pointers.When you are able to sense it directly within yourself,it deepens.So when you appreciate something simple—a sound,a sight,a touch—when you see beauty,when you feel loving kindness toward another,sense the inner spaciousness that is the source and background to that experience.

The pain-body awakens from its dormancy when it gets hungry,when it is time to replenish itself.Alternatively,it may get triggered by an event at any time.The pain- body that is ready to feed can use the most insignificant event as a trigger,something somebody says or does,or even a thought.If you live alone or there is nobody around at the time,the pain-body will feed on your thoughts.

意識所能覺知的範圍遠比思想所能理解的範圍要博大得多。當你不再相信你所思考的一切,你便跨越了思想,清醒地認識到那個思考者與你並非就是一個人。

At some point in their lives,most people become aware that there is not only birth,growth,success,good health,pleasure,and winning,but also loss,failure,sickness,old age,decay,pain,and death.Conventionally these are labeled"good"and"bad,"order and disorder.The"meaning"of people"s lives is usually associated with what they term the"good,"but the good is continually threatened by collapse,breakdown,disorder; threatened by meaninglessness and the"bad,"when explanations fail and life ceases to make sense.Sooner or later,disorder will irrupt into everyone"s life no matter how many insurance policies he or she has.It may come in the form of loss or accident,sickness,disability,old age,death.However,the irruption of disorder into a person"s life,and the resultant collapse of a mentally defined meaning,can become the opening into a higher order.

問:請問您關於臨在的教導與現在流行的所謂吸引力法則的教導之間的基本區別是什麼?在吸引力法則教導的背後真正的問題是關於慾望的,我總是感覺自己非常傾向於蘇菲的教導,它說在我的慾望背後深深隱藏的是對神的渴望。然而,吸引力法則的倡導者們說如果你以某種方式思考或是感覺,那麼你可以擁有你想要的任何東西,或是成為你想成為的任何樣子。當我聽到這個說法的時候,我總是看見一個紅色警示,因為我想如果用這個方法,自我可能會變得瘋狂。我的問題是,有沒有一種更深層次的渴望,是並非來自於自我的?
