幸福的瞬間 活佛師尊慈悲囑語

幸福的瞬間
 
心要能夠閒是不簡單的,人閒較好還是心閒較好?心如果閒就不會有雜亂,雜妄的心。人如果太閒了就會生病,所以人要勤、要積極。從你出生到現在,那一件事情不是學來的,還是出世就會的?除了會哭、會吃、會笑是自然的天性,還有原原本本的靈性,是不用學的。
 
幸福的感覺是一種滿足、不貪求。你們想想看,在這人生那一個人沒有想「好還要更好」,在立志上,好要更好,在修行上,也要好還要更好,但是在越好的時候,你的心要越謙下,「滿招損、謙受益」!
 
這個時下就是需要內德的涵養,來陶冶心性,當你做事情有所感觸,有所收穫的時候,你會覺得很充實,否則你忙了一整天,你都沒有任何收穫,你會覺得很空虛、很空洞,好像白忙一場。
 
太陽與月亮無時無刻不普照大地,你們想當太陽還是當月亮?或者星星?現在剛進來道場還可當星星,慢慢的就要當月亮普照他人,月光比較小,以後要當太陽,要自己發光,不要藉別人的光來發光。

你今天耕作就會有收成,收成好不好是另外一回事,因為每一個人用心不一樣。每一個人都在修道,但是每一個人的成果都不一樣,因為你的心念不一樣,你跟仙佛的心不一樣,當然結果不一樣。

 

修道像一面鏡子,照你自己的習性、毛病、還有修養,每一個人的修養都不一樣,有些人被人家講一兩句話他就生氣了,有些人並不是不生氣,而是他還能夠忍,但是有些人卻能夠無動於衷,這是「心境的提昇」。
 
每一個人都有「惻隱之心」,但是因為這個世界上聲色名利、七情六慾一大堆,多多少少本性都會被蒙蔽,但是遇到有人在危險的時候,你會忍不住去拉人家一把,自己都不知道為什麼會這麼做,這個就是你「本性的光輝」。
 
當緣份再度的牽引 你和我笑談在這佛堂中
就算是再短暫的聚首 能重逢這仁慈已足夠
可知道有些事有些人 停留在發生的那天 揮不走
嘆時光的穿梭 捨不得被遺忘
這旅途更應滿足 彼此陪伴的幸福
為你打開來去之路 飛越迷霧 再不受束縛
是苦過也掙扎過 得來的幸福 等那一天蠶蛹漸漸蛻變
生命已放光輝 永恆 終於相信了幸福的瞬間
為你打開來去之路 飛越迷霧 再不受束縛
每一秒都不後悔 我陪你體會 縱然未來層層考驗
留下了點點的淚水 也要一起成長 牽手走一回 依偎

幸福是不是一瞬間,還是長長久久?見仁見智,是不是?為什麼為師說幸福是瞬間?因為,為師來了兩個小時,但為師不知道你們覺得怎麼樣?這兩個小時為師覺得幸福,因為跟你們在一起,所以是幸福的瞬間,你會去珍惜這一段,那就是你的幸福。

 

為師說,這「仁慈已足夠」,為什麼說仁慈,今天你跟為師我兩個要見面,談何容易?雖然你看到的只是個肉體,不是真正的為師,但是你們可以感覺到為師對你們的關懷。有些人為什麼「停在發生的那一天」,很多人會去回憶,回憶以前的點點滴滴,他走不開,他沒辦法再向前邁進,不管是好的或是不好的,總是眷念在那個時候,所以說你就揮不走,有時候你想忘也忘不了。
 
「時光無情的穿梭」,但是每個人都很怕你會忘記了什麼事情,對不對?自己怕不怕自己會被人家忘記?如果說,明天過年人家打個電話來跟你拜個年,你高不高興?代表那個人記得有你這個人的存在是不是?那代表你做的是不錯啦,人家會想到你,所以在這個旅途上,你更應該感到滿足,為什麼?因為在周遭有很多人陪著你一起在走,很多人默默地在關心著你。
 
為師問你們,你們有沒有關心別人,有些人都只是想說,老師您來您都沒有關心我,我在旁邊坐了那麼久,都沒有跟我講一句話,都沒有看我一眼,但是,你有沒有想說老師啊!您很辛苦,有沒有這樣子。你看父母親上班回來了,父母親就會唸唸唸,也不關心我,到底今天發生了什麼事情,我被搶劫了,是不是?都沒有問!你們有沒有想說:「父母親在外面平安嗎?是不是怕你們擔心,所以有什麼事情沒有跟你們講。」這個是孝順啊!有沒有用自己的心去體貼別人,多去關懷別人,有沒有?有的是有想到才有,沒有時時刻刻都這樣子,這個就是你們目前能夠做的。
 
在家裡有沒有很孝順父母親?哇!怎麼都沒有回應?以後希不希望你們的兒女孝順你們?(希望)那你們就要做給你們的兒女看,這個就是「道」。從你自己本身做起,你做一個標準做一個模範,那你家裡就會平安,「平安就是福」。
 
「為你打開了來去之路」,你們都求了道,也進了這個門,那你們就要「飛越迷霧」,就是不要再困在這個紅塵之中,迷迷糊糊一天過著一天,永遠都不知道那裏是盡頭,落到最後奄奄一息,才想到我這一輩子好像沒有做到什麼,那可不可嘆?真的很可嘆,為師不是嚇唬你們的。
怎麼樣的幸福,值得珍惜?是不是經過苦,讓你受過苦,一個東西你有付出,你所得來的才會去珍惜,你才會感覺到它非常的珍貴,所以說苦也是在那邊一直掙扎掙扎,到最後才能夠享受到這一份溫馨,這一份美好的幸福。
 
人還是要努力,有一天就會像那個「蠶蛹破繭而出」,它破繭而出的時候,變成美麗的蝴蝶,它可以自由自在的飛翔;就像人一樣,你努力到最後,你會有成果,你有成果的時候,你才能夠真正達到自己想要做的理想,完成自己美好的理想。
 
所以,在這一段期間一定要受到苦,不可能平白無故這樣子,如果讓你生出來就是一隻蝴蝶,你會不會覺得你很可貴?讓你生出來你是一隻蟲,然後你可以變成蝴蝶,你會不會覺得很可貴?那個蟲也很危險,生出來卵,卵要變成蟲,你要保證自己不被踩死,能夠忍受風吹雨打,你要會茁壯,到最後能夠結成蛹,變成蝴蝶,要經歷多少的危險,要有多少的機緣,不然你如何能夠變成一隻漂亮的蝴蝶,所以一定要承受打擊,要能夠承受去熬過難關,生命才會有光輝。
  
  

The Holy Teachings of Ji Gong Living Buddha
                                                  November 9, 2002
Zi De Temple, Xin Zhuang
A Moment of Happiness
 
A true leisured feeling is not easy to obtain. Which is better, physically relaxed or mentally relaxed? Feeling mentally relaxed you can be a leisured person free from disorder and irrationality, but indulgence too much in it may breed defects too, so you still need to make diligent and vigorous efforts to learn. Since you are born, which abilities come by nature, or are they mostly acquired through learning? Crying, eating, and laughing are inherent in nature, so is your original self-nature, which is not acquired through learning.
 
A moment of happiness is a sense of contentment, not an inordinate desire of craving. Think about it! In this world, there is no one who does not want to improve himself, “endeavor to do still better.” It is especially true when you make holy vows and manage your life in Dao cultivation. But in striving for perfection you must remember to be modest and keep in a low profile. “Pride leads to loss while modesty will bring benefit.”
At this moment, the inner virtues of patience and persistence are especially important. Gaining a lot from doing a task you feel a substantial sense of achievement, while reaping no harvest will cause a shallow and void feeling making you feel like you have worked in vain.
 
The sun and the moon incessantly shed their light on the earth. Do you want to be the sun or the moon? Or stars? As a beginner in the Dao society, you start with being a star shedding little light, gradually you can be a moon, and further you can shine like the sun radiating with your own light, which means you do not need to rely on others then.
 
Those who sow in tears will reap in joy, whether you have a good harvest or not, which is determined by how much effort you have made. Therefore, Dao cultivators coming in large numbers may have different outcomes too, because they also vary with how much effort you have made. Whether you have a good result from Dao cultivation is determined by whether you have put in your true heart to Heaven or not.

 

Dao cultivation is like a mirror, which reflects your bad habits, your bad tempers, and the level you have reached. Some people reaching only a low level often get irritated when criticized, others are better because they can still endure their anger; still others are even better, in that they continue with their cultivation work remaining unbiased by all the criticisms; they truly have upgraded their frame of mind to a very high degree.
 
Everyone is born with a “hidden true nature”, but situated in this society full of blind pursuits of fame, wealth, desires, sensory pleasures, etc., your true nature is thus shrouded and cannot prevail. However, when seeing someone in danger, you cannot help yourself but rescue him impulsively. You do not even know why you have done so. This is exactly the “glory of your true nature.”
 
When affinity is rekindled, you and I smile and talk in this Temple.
The reunion may not be long, but definitely joyful and fruitful.
This is already enough, thank God for the mercy.
All the things and people at this moment reside in our memory inerasable.
Despite the ruthless passage of time,
They make us feel contented and rewarded in the journey of life.
It is a great sense of companionship.
A golden path is already created for you;
Break through the dense fog, no more bonds.
This hard-won happiness is obtained through bitterness and struggle.
Until the day when a caterpillar turns into a butterfly,
The beauty of life will radiate with splendid glory.
We come to realize that a transient moment of happiness can be ever-lasting.
A golden path is already created for you;
Break through the dense fog, no more bonds.
Each and every second, no regret at all.
Facing the trials and tribulations ahead, you and I work in unity,
Shedding tears and growing together.
At all times we lead each other by the hand,
Being together!
            (Melody: A Moment of Happiness)
 
Does happiness come all of a sudden, or can it be ever-lasting? The answer varies from person to person, right? As your Holy Teacher, why do I think happiness can be an instant that is as short as a twinkling of an eye? The reason is that, by being together with you for the two hours, I feel warm and happy, which is a short moment but can last long because I cherish it forever. So if you can cherish it, your happiness can also last forever with you.
 
In the song, I said, “This is already enough, thank God for the mercy.” Why? Today you can I can meet each other, this is not an easy thing! Although you are only seeing this physical body, not the real Me, you can still feel my concern for you. Why do some people often “stop at certain moment” and cannot let go? Because so many things and people, either good or bad, reside in your memory and cannot be erased. You cannot help but stop your life at that specific moment.
 
The passage of time is ruthless, because of which people tend to forget. Are you afraid if you are forgotten by others? Suppose tomorrow is Chinese New Year and people all call to say hello to you, are you happy then? It means they remember you and that you are important to them. In the journey of life, therefore, you feel contented and rewarded because there are so many people concerned about you.
As your Holy Teacher, I want you to introspect yourself whether you have shown your concern for others. Or you are thinking, “Teacher, you never show your concern for me. I have been sitting here for so long, but you did not say a word to me. You did not even see me.” While complaining, did you show your concern for Me? In your family you may think your parents are always nagging without feeling concern for you. You may probably have been robbed on the day and they did not even ask, just keep nagging you. However, have you ever shown your concern for them, asking about them maybe something happened to them and they did not tell you because they do not want you to worry? This is filial piety! Express your true concerns and care about people surrounding you. Some of you just do it once in a while, not constantly. But this is what you can do for the time being.
 
In your family do you fulfill filial duties to your parents? Why don’t you answer? Do you expect your children to fulfill filial duties to you? (Yes!) Then you have to make a good model of yourself. This is Dao. Start from yourself and be a standard role model, then your family will have peace and harmony. “Peace and harmony are the most precious blessings of all.”
 
“A golden path is already created for you.” As you all have received Dao, you are Dao cultivators and should be able to break through the dense fog free yourself from confusion and deviant thoughts. Do not get stuck in this dusty secular world blindly and dreamily idling away your days not knowing what the real goal of life is. Without going on this golden path, you will live your life in vain and feel remorseful regret when you die. I am not saying this to scare you, but it is absolutely true.
 
What kind of happiness is especially worth cherishing? Is it not the hard-won happiness obtained through bitterness and struggle? People tend to cherish what they give, especially the hard-won happiness, which is more precious than anything else. Although the process may be bitter and full of painful struggles, eventually the result will bring a wonderful sense of warmth and well-being.
 
Everyone needs to work hard, so one day they will be like the beautiful butterfly breaking through the pupa flying freely in the air. So you need to make every effort of yours. When you succeed, you will be able to realize the ambition you have been pursuing, which is the real beautiful vision of your life.
 
In the process, however, you must endure bitterness and struggle. You cannot achieve success for no reason. If a butterfly were born a butterfly, would you still consider it precious? Is it not especially precious that a butterfly is born an egg, then transformed into a larva, and finally a beautiful butterfly? The worm is dangerous because someone might stamp on it and that it has to endure the battering of winds and rains. See how many trials and tribulations it has to face in order to be a butterfly. Therefore, one needs to cultivate his abilities by taking frustrations and difficulties, and the beauty of life will radiate with splendid glory.
