每天只需五分鐘 / 如何輕鬆地克服挑戰

9 May

每天只需五分鐘

每天反思究竟我們真正在追求什麼,在怎樣的條件下以及用什麼方式追求,這樣的反思都是對自己很有裨益。無礙我們的生活,只需要每天抽出一點時間。我們可以從每天五分鐘開始,這不算太多,練習本身不需要密集的方法或嚴格的程序。我們所需要做的是坐著或站立在一個感到舒適、安靜、平靜的地方。

然後,只要以平靜的心態和身體禪修和反思在過去廿四小時發生了什麼事情,不要作任何判斷,也毋需加入自我的情緒。通過這樣做,就會帶來很多好處。你會更了解自己,了解你生活中有趣的事情。這不僅有助於你的記憶,使其更加清晰,而且可以真正幫助對自己的了解,以及認識快樂的本質。

我鼓勵大家嘗試這樣做。我自己也是盡力運用這種方法,這的確帶來了很多好處。它可以幫助我明確了解現在我身處的狀況,過去曾經體驗過的事情,這樣做也有助我了解可能發生的事情。這種簡單的修行可以幫助我們了解過去、現在和未來,令我們有信心,和能夠深入了解快樂為何物。

Taking 5 minutes a day

It is beneficial to reflect every day on what we are really seeking, theconditions that we have been gathering, and the methods that we have been applying. There is no harm in taking a little time every day from our schedules. We can start by taking just five minutes a day – it’s not much – and the practice itself doesn’t need to involve intensive methods or rigorous procedures. All we need to do is sit, or stand in a place where we feel comfortable, quiet and peaceful.

Then, simply meditate and reflect, with a calm state of mind and body. Reflect on the past 24 hours – nothing more – reflect on exactly what has happened. Do this in an unemotional way, without judgment. By doing so, there is so much benefit. You will understand more about yourself, the various interesting aspects of your life. Not only will this help your memory, gain clarity, but it can truly help you understand yourself, and the true nature of happiness.

I encourage all of you to try this. I follow this practice as much as I can, and it definitely brings a lot of benefit. It helps me to understand exactly where I am, what I have experienced in the past, and by doing so it also helps me understand what may happen, the possibilities. In this way, this simple practice can help us understand the past, the present and the future.

We feel confident, and can gain an insight into happiness.

發願和無私奉獻 / 心識的本質

4月18日

發願和無私奉獻這兩個善巧方法是心識一種無可超越的特質,它能將百千萬劫努力才能累積的功德縮短至只要一生就能圓滿。

噶瑪巴

18 April

Aspiration and dedication: these two are such skilful means, such unsurpassable phenomena or qualities of the mind that, where it would normally take an eon to accumulate a certain amount of merit, with aspiration and dedication we are able to reduce that eon of hard work to just one lifetime.

心識的本質

如果一個修行者仔細觀察自己的心識,會察覺很明顯地心識是念念相續不斷 ,非常困難發現或描述它有一個起點。

這表示心識的本質並非執著或依附某種東西(如夢,其實這就是輪迴)。當修行者試圖執著或依附某種東西時,當下和長遠的影響將會是經歷迷惘,即痛苦(’dukkha’)或混亂。

因此,修行者從這些簡單的事實就能證明,心識從來都不會執著或依附於夢境或輪迥,有意識或心識的眾生自然能從夢中醒來,走向覺悟。

#Karmapa on the nature of our minds

If a practitioner looks at his or her mind closely, it’s clear that it simply moves forward, constantly – it is very very hard to detect or to describe a beginning in its movement.

This shows that the mind’s nature is never to hold on or cling to something (like the dream which is samsara). The moment the practitioner allows their mind to try to hold on or cling to something, both the immediate and long-term repercussions will be to experience agitation, meaning suffering (‘dukkha’) or confusion.

Therefore, just these simple facts show the practitioner that their mind is never meant to hold on to dreams or hold on to samsara, and that whoever has a consciousness or a mind, it is naturally supposed to wake from the dream and move forward towards enlightenment.
