【日誌】Observe the present mind

kariods | 2020-11-29 20:57:11

讓心靜下來,觀察,觀察自己,觀察別人。
看清楚自己的心,這或許就是以前很多人都提到的做心的主人。
讓自己能夠活在當下,這讓我想到Allan Kaplan的 Delicate activism(http://www.proteusinitiative.org/books-and-other-publications).
帶著純粹的好奇心觀察,而你瞭解你觀察的事物時,也瞭解你自己。很微妙的事情
又是一個之後有機會可以再深入分享的事

Short Dhamma Talk - Thanissaro Bhikkhu
We're so used to running that we think that that's the mind's normal state.
But the mind at normalcy actually is the mind in the present moment.
And then it can see itself.
Greed comes up you see the creating.
Good things come up in the mind and you can see the good things too.
And you're a better position to decide what you should act on.
Otherwise something comes whispering in your ear and you just go with it without stopping to think is this who's doing the whispering.
But you can see clearly. okay! this is greed whispering, I don't have to follow it.
This is compassion whispering, this is good will whispering. Okay! That's something that can be listened to.
You can sort things out a lot more clearly this way because you're right here.
You can see the beginning of a thought even before the beginning of a thought.
You begin to see the stirring of something.
You can get a sense of where it's going.
And if it's going in a bad place you can nip it in the butt.
If it's going to a good place you can encourage it.
Because it's not like the Buddhist telling us not to think at all.
Just be a little bit more systematic.
Bring a little bit more light to our thinking."

我們習慣忙碌並視之為心正常的狀態
但當你的心處於當下這才是正常的
然後他會看到他自己
當貪婪起來時你看見他
你也能看到好的事物升起的時候
於是你處於最好的位置決定你該如何行動
否則當甚麼於你耳邊細語時,你將毫無覺察是誰在耳語就跟著他
但你看清楚了
恩,這是貪婪在說話,我不用跟隨他
這是慈悲、善意在說話,這是可以傾聽的
因為你處於當下,你可以更清楚的處理事情
你會在想法開時前就看見他的開端
你開始看見事物萌發
你也會感知他將去何處
如果他將往壞的地方前行,你可以在開始就熄滅他
如果他將往好的地方情形,你可以鼓勵他
因為佛陀並沒有告訴我們不要有任何想法
就只是變得更系統化一點
把光一點點地帶入我們的想法中
