神奇 | Magic

Jan. 3 | 随着年龄的增长,我们似乎越来越难以感受到周遭事物的神奇。我想,这是因为我们每天早上醒来面对这个世界时,总是有一股抹不去的烦闷,觉得我们“什么都见过了”。似乎再没有任何事情能让我们产生新鲜感。甚至亲密关系也可能变得毫无生气,让人难以承受。就连最好的朋友和恋人之间也可能失去共同的兴趣。我想,关键不在于寻找更多让人感到刺激的新的经历,而是觉悟到同样的老玩意儿大部分都已经够好了。 是的,这确实可能有点“无聊”。但是如果我们每天都“转世”,把昨天的成见与不必要的批判洗涤干净,那么这老旧的世界将焕然一新。我们周围充满着“神奇”。留意看一下你多年以来都没看的彩虹。多少人真的看了昨晚的圆月?它不是跟你第一次看它的时候一样神奇吗?一颗苍老的心是一颗没有觉知的心。你是否感到苍老?巴士上婴儿天真的咿咿呀呀对我来说就是一种神奇。而对婴儿来说,一切都是神奇。甚至我这个站在旁边漫不经心地看着他的人,也是一种神奇。 我并非在故弄玄虚,觉悟之路毕竟是迈向清晰境界的旅程。关键是,我们大部分都还没有真正看到什么(“看到”指“体悟真谛”)。佛陀的觉悟对我们来说就是一种神奇,是他无法向我们描述的境界。但是,他看清了这“戏法”,也就是一切是如何“变现”出来的真相。那些感到苍老疲惫的人,请记住,佛陀从寻找觉悟之路到他进入涅槃的“最后”的时刻,心境始终年轻。我们还没有揭露一切事物背后的“戏法”的真相。在那之前,不要停止对一切感到神奇。一切都不是表面的那么简单。年龄增长了,但是“神奇”却依然。别再无聊下去,追求觉悟的神奇吧! (1月3日...
