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.
天文學家們已發現證據,指示出宇宙來自150億年前的一次大爆炸後直至今天的擴展。它不僅僅在擴展,也在複雜的程度上獲得成長,變得越來越不同。一些科學家也假定從最初聯合到多樣性表達的這些時刻也將最終顛倒過來。宇宙將在那時停止擴展並開始再次的收縮,最終回歸一切的虛無,這一不可思議的虛無從中所引出的—也許是誕生,擴展,收縮與死亡不斷重複的循環,一次又一次。那麼目的是什麼?「為什麼宇宙要如此麻煩的去存在?」向物理學家史蒂芬霍金詢問,同一時刻也明白沒有什麼樣的數字模型能真正的支持這一答案。


If you look within rather than only without,however,you discover that you have an inner and an outer purpose,and since you are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm,it follows that the universe too has an inner and outer purpose inseparable from yours.The outer purpose of the universe is to create form and experience the interaction of forms—the play,the dream,the drama,or whatever you choose to call it.Its inner purpose is to awaken to its formless essence.Then comes the reconciliation of outer and inner purpose: to bring that essence—consciousness—into the world of form and thereby transform the world.The ultimate purpose of that transformation goes far beyond anything the human mind can imagine or comprehend.And yet,on this planet at this time,that transformation is the task allotted us.That is the reconciliation of outer and inner purpose,the reconciliation of the world and God.
如果你看向內在而不僅僅只是外在,你會發現你有著一份內在和一份外在的目的,同時自一開始你就是宏觀世界的一份微觀映照,它所追隨的是宇宙同樣也有著一份內在與外在的目的,與你的亦不可分割。宇宙的外在目的是創造一種形象,同時體驗形象的互動—遊戲,夢想,戲劇,或是你任何希望稱呼它的名稱。它的內在目的是意識到其自身「無形象」的本質。隨後引出外在與內在目標的調和:為了帶來那份本質—意識—進入有形的世界,從而轉變這個世界。這份轉化的最終目的遠遠超出人類意識可能想像或領悟的任何情形。不過,在此刻的這顆星球之上,這份轉變便是分配給我們的重任。它是內在與外在目的的調和,這個世界與神之間的調和。


Before we look at what relevance the expansion and contraction of the universe has to your own life,we need to bear in mind here that nothing we say about the nature of the universe should be taken as an absolute truth.Neither concepts nor mathematical formulae can explain the infinite.No thought can encapsulate the vastness of the totality.Reality is a unified whole,but thought cuts it up into fragments.This gives rise to fundamental misperceptions,for example,that there are separate things and events,or that this is the cause of that.Every thought implies a perspective,and every perspective,by its very nature,implies limitation,which ultimately means that it is not true,at least not absolutely.Only the whole is true,but the whole cannot be spoken or thought.Seen from beyond the limitations of thinking and therefore incomprehensible to the human mind,everything is happening now.All that ever has been or will be is now,outside of time,which is a mental construct.
在我們看待宇宙的擴展與收縮與你自身生活的相互關聯之前,我們需要牢記此刻我們所談到關於宇宙本質的事情,沒有什麼應該被看作是一份絕對的真相。不論是觀點概念或是數學上的公式都不能解釋「無限」的含義。沒有什麼思想能夠封裝這一完整體的巨大。現實世界是一個統一的整體,但思想卻把它切成了碎片。這就為基本的知覺錯誤帶來提升的可能,舉例來說,存在著分離的事物和事件,或是遭致這些的起因。每個想法暗示著一份觀點,而每個觀點,以其本質來說,意味著限定,最終它都意味著它並非真實,至少不是絕對的真實。僅有這一整體是真實的,但這個整體卻無法被道出或想像。所看清的是超越思維限定,所以對人類心智而言是不能理解—每件事情都發生在當下。所有曾經已發生或將要發生的都在「此刻」,外在的時間,只是一種精神上的構建概念。


As an illustration of relative and absolute truth,consider the sunrise and sunset.When we say the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening,that is true,but only relatively.In absolute terms,it is false.Only from the limited perspective of an observer on or near the planet's surface does the sun rise and set.If you were far out in space,you would see that the sun neither rises nor sets,but that it shines continuously.And yet,even after realizing that,we can continue to speak of the sunrise or sunset,still see its beauty,paint it,write poems about it,even though we now know that it is a relative rather than an absolute truth.
作為一份相對與絕對真相的說明,可認作為日出和日落。當我們說晨間的日出和夕陽的日落時,它是真實的,但僅僅是相對而言。以絕對論述,它是錯誤的。僅僅源自一位觀察者受限的觀點或是近似於這顆星球的表面才體現出日出和日落。如果你遠在太空深處,你便會看到太陽既沒有升起也不會落下,而是持續不斷的閃耀。然而,即便在明白這個事實之後,我們依舊能繼續談論著日出或日落,依舊看到它的美麗,描繪它,賦予讚美它的詩句,即便現在我們明白它只是一個相對而非絕對的真相。


So let us continue to speak for a moment of another relative truth: the coming into form of the universe and its return to the formless,which implies the limited perspective of time,and see what relevance this has to your own life.The notion of"my own life"is,of course,another limited perspective created by thought,another relative truth.There is ultimately no such thing as"your"life,since you and life are not two,but one.
那麼讓我們繼續談談另一個相對的真相:宇宙形態的鑄成與它回歸於虛無,這意味著時間上的受限觀點,同時看清這與你自我的生活有著怎樣的關聯。「我自己的生活」的概念,當然是,另一個由思想創造的限制觀點,另一個相對的事實。最終不存在著「你的生活」的事情,自一開始你與你的生活並非是分離的兩者,而是一體。
