期望和懷疑

噶瑪巴對於期望和懷疑:

我們有期望是正常的,因為我們生活在一個給條件限制的世界裡,並且因為是元素的組合,使我們成為一個受條件限制的生命。所以,如果我們只不過不時懷著期望,並且沒有過度的情緒,這是很正常,我認為這是可以的。

同樣,我們也會有疑慮。同道理,如果我們有不斷、過度的懷疑,當然這樣對於心靈是不健康的,最終對整個系統來說也是不健康。當我們不了解事情時,我們懷疑是正常的,我們只需要弄明白事情。當我們通過學習和知識吸收獲得經驗時,我們就能清楚地看到我們沒有什麼需要懷疑的。

因此,當我們首先接受我們的期望和懷疑時,自然會克服許多挑戰。接下來要做的是駕馭期望和疑慮所帶來的情緒,這樣事情會變得更簡單。


Karmapa on expectations and doubts:

It is normal that we expect, because we are living in a conditioned world, and there are components that make us a conditioned being. So it is only normal, and if we just have expectations from time to time genuinely, without excessive emotion, I think it is okay.

Similarly, we also have doubts. And the same principle applies: if we have continuous, excessive doubting, of course it is unhealthy for the mind and then eventually for the whole system. So when we don’t know things, it is normal that we have doubts, and we can simply clarify things. When we gain experience, by learning and absorbing knowledge, we see clearly that we have nothing to doubt.

Therefore, when we first accept that we have expectations and doubts, a lot of challenges are naturally overcome. And then the next step will be to negotiate all of the emotions that come along with expectations and doubts. Then it becomes much simpler.
