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.
這裡有一個靈性的訓練方法,會在你的生活中帶來被賦權和創造性的擴展。請對於你經常進行的日常活動制定一份每日的列表。包括那些你也許認為不感興趣,無聊,沉悶,惱火或是有壓力的事情。但不要包含任何你憎恨或是最厭惡去做的。這是一個事例,接納或是停止你做的事情。這份列表可以包括旅行,工作,購買生活用品,洗燙衣物,或是任何你發現在你每日的工作中覺得沉悶或是壓力的事情。隨後,在任何時候你遭遇到那些活動時,讓它們成為使你「警覺」的載具。


Be absolutely present in what you do and sense the alert,alive stillness within you in the background of the activity.You will soon find that what you do in such a state of heightened awareness,instead of being stressful,tedious,or irritating,is actually becoming enjoyable.To be more precise,what you are enjoying is not really the outward action but the inner dimension of consciousness that flows into the action.This is finding the joy of Being in what you are doing.If you feel your life lacks significance or is too stressful or tedious,it is because you haven't brought that dimension into your life yet.Being conscious in what you do has not yet become your main aim.
完全的落實在當前你做的事情上並保持警覺,鮮活的寧靜包含在你所做這些活動的背景畫面中。你會很快發現在這樣一種高度覺察的狀態所進行的活動,取代壓力,沉悶,或是令人惱火,實際上變成了享受。更確切的說,你所享受的並非是這些外在的活動,而是內在意識的維度流向這一行動的續流。正是這讓你在所做的事情中發現了"存在的喜悅"。如果你覺得自己的生活缺乏意義或是太過於壓力和沉悶,這是因為你還沒有在自己的生活中帶入那個維度。在你所做的事情上保持覺知還沒有成為你的主要目標。


The new earth arises as more and more people discover that their main purpose in life is to bring the light of consciousness into this world and so use whatever they do as a vehicle for consciousness.
新地球的升起所作為的是越來越多的人發掘出生活中自己的主要目標,帶來這份意識的光芒進入這個世界,且也利用上他們作為意識載具的任何情形。


The joy of Being is the joy of being conscious.
存在的喜悅是—保持覺知的喜悅。


Awakened consciousness then takes over from ego and begins to run your life.You may then find that an activity that you have been engaged in for a long time naturally begins to expand into something much bigger when it becomes empowered by consciousness.Some of those people who,through creative action,enrich the lives of many others simply do what they enjoy doing most without wanting to achieve or become anything through that activity.
覺醒的意識脫離了小我的束縛並開始在你的生命中運作。你也許隨後發現很長時間以來自己一直在從事的一項活動自然而然的開始擴展進入某件經由意識的賦權更大的事物中。這其中的一些人,通過創造性的活動,單純的去做他們最為享受的事情,並不包含希望達成的目標或是在那個活動中成就任何事,便是充實了許多其他人的生活。


They may be musicians,artists,writers,scientists,teachers,or builders,or they may bring into manifestation new social or business structures(enlightened businesses).Sometimes for a few years their sphere of influence remains small; and then it can happen that suddenly or gradually a wave of creative empowerment flows into what they do,and their activity expands beyond anything they could have imagined and touches countless others.In addition to enjoyment,an intensity is now added to what they do and with it comes a creativity that goes beyond anything an ordinary human could accomplish.
他們也許是音樂家,藝術家,作家,科學家,老師,或是建築師,又或是他們顯現出新社會或事務的結構(啟發性的商業活動)。幾年來的某些時候他們影響力停留在小範圍;隨後突然的發生或是逐步的一種創造性的浪潮湧入到他們所做的情形中,並且他們的活動擴展超越任何他們能夠想像的事情,觸及到了數不盡的其他人。除了享受之外,一種強烈的程度此刻也添加到他們所作的事情上,伴隨而來一種創造力,超越普通人能夠完成的任何事。


But don't let it go to your head,because up there is where a remnant of ego may be hiding.You are still an ordinary human.What is extraordinary is what comes through you into this world.But that essence you share with all beings.The fourteenth-century Persian poet and Sufi master Hafiz expresses this truth beautifully:"I am a hole in a flute that the Christ's breath moves through.Listen to this music.」
但是不要讓它沖昏你的頭,畢竟總是隱藏著小我出現的可能。你依舊是一位普通人。所體現出的非凡是通過你在這個世界所帶來的不同。但是本質上你是與所有人在分享。十四世紀的波斯詩人和蘇菲派大師哈菲茨以美麗的方式表達了這一真相:「我是長笛上的音洞,讓基督的氣息流過。請聆聽這曲音樂
