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.」
小我製造出分離,而分離帶來痛苦。小我也因此從諸如憤怒,憎恨等等顯而易見的病態分離中被清晰的體現,還有更多微妙的負面性形式是如此的類似卻通常不會被予以察覺,例如,沒有耐心,易怒,神經質,以及感到「忍無可忍」。


They constitute the background unhappiness that is many people's predominant inner state.You need to be extremely alert and absolutely present to be able to detect them.Whenever you do,it is a moment of awakening,of disidentification from the mind.Here is one of the most common negative states that is easily overlooked,precisely because it is so common,so normal.You may be familiar with it.Do you often experience a feeling of discontent that could best be described as a kind of background resentment? It may be either specific or nonspecific.Many people spend a large part of their lives in that state.They are so identified with it that they cannot stand back and see it.Underlying that feeling are certain unconsciously held beliefs,that is to say,thoughts.You think these thoughts in the same way that you dream your dreams when you are asleep.In other words,you don't know you are thinking those thoughts,just as the dreamer doesn't know he is dreaming.
它們構成了「苦惱」的背景,而這正是許多人主要的內在狀態。你需要極其的警覺並完全的保持臨在從而能夠偵測出它們。不論你何時去做,這一刻便是「覺醒的」,不與頭腦意識的認同。存在著這一最普遍的負面性狀態,但卻被輕易的忽視,精確的說是因為它如此普遍,如此的平常。你也許便與它熟悉備至。難道你不是經常的體驗到一種不滿的感受,它最有可能被描述為一種怨恨的背景情緒?它也許是特定的,或是非特定。許多人在生命中花了很多時間處於那種狀態。他們也與它保持了認同,於是他們無法抽離並看清它。在其中所包含的感受便是某種被無意識持有的信念,可以說,想法。你認為的這些想法,以同樣的方式即你在自己睡眠的時候做著夢。言外之意,你並不真正瞭解自己所認為的那些想法,僅僅只是作為夢中人卻不知道夢到的是什麼。


These are stories the ego creates to convince you that you cannot be at peace now or cannot be fully yourself now.Being at peace and being who you are,that is,being yourself,are one.The ego says: Maybe at some point in the future,I can be at peace—if this,that,or the other happens,or I obtain this or become that.Or it says: I can never be at peace because of something that happened in the past.Listen to people's stories and they could all be entitled"Why I Cannot Be at Peace Now."The ego doesn't know that your only opportunity for being at peace is now.Or maybe it does know,and it is afraid that you may find this out.Peace,after all,is the end of the ego.How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment.The present moment is the field on which the game of life happens.It cannot happen anywhere else.
便是這些故事由小我創造了出來,說服你認為此刻你無法平靜或是無法完全的成為自己。處於平靜中並成為你是誰,即,成為你自己,含義是一樣的。小我卻在說:也許在未來的某一刻,我才能夠平靜—如果這樣,那樣,或是有其他事情發生,或是我獲得這個,或是成為那個。或是它說到:我永遠不可能處於平靜中,因為某件事情早在過去發生了。聽一聽人們的故事,那麼他們所有人都有著同樣的主題「為什麼我無法在現在平靜」。小我不明白你僅有的機會是在當下的此刻處於平靜中。或是它也許知道,只是在擔心你也許會發現這個真相。寧靜和平,畢竟,意味著小我的終結。如何能夠在此刻處於平靜中?所經由的便是在當下的此刻做出平靜的選擇。當下這一刻是生命遊戲發生的領域。它不可能在其他任何地方發生。


Once you have made peace with the present moment,see what happens,what you can do or choose to do,or rather what life does through you.There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living,the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life.Being one with life is being one with Now.You then realize that you don't live your life,but life lives you.Life is the dancer,and you are the dance.
一旦你在當下這一刻做出平靜的選擇,看一看會發生什麼,有什麼你能夠做,或是選擇去做的,或是僅僅只是讓生命的流動通過你。這三句話便傳遞出了生活的藝術,所有成功與幸福的秘密在於:【與生命同行】。與生命同行便是與當下同行。你隨後明白你並非在過著生活,而是生活因你而鮮活。生活是舞者,而你是主旋律。
