 在当今时代,该如何简单人生呢?(中英开示)

  我们这个时代的繁荣是不可思议的,日新月异地发生着改变,无论是电子用品还是生活模式,都在变化,越来越繁杂。那么我们在当今时代,该如何简单人生呢?

  The prosperity of this era is incredible. Every aspect of our lifestyle is changing rapidly and is becoming more and more complex, ever improving electronics being a good illustration of such impact. So how do we simplify our life in this complex world?

  人的一生中充满着徘徊犹豫、矛盾的心理,就是因为我们从出生就活在一个善恶对错、人我是非的二元对立的世界中,这个对法是人类的特质。

  Our life is dominated by hesitations and conflicts. Because since we were born we has been living in a dualistic world - good or bad, right or wrong. Duality is part of human nature.

  所谓心外求法就是在自心之外有所求,有所求是心理亏欠的表现。它一直推动着我们在内外对立的世界中彷徨迷茫,不断寻找平衡。当要求得不到满足时,就会埋怨指责。这是我们生活的常态,我们要去觉悟它。

  Seeking dharma or answers outside our heart means we lack something, which pushes us to look for balance in this dualistic world both inside and outside. But when the reality fails to meet our expectations, we often complain. We should awaken from this habit.

  我们如果了解外在一切事物都是心地的展现,是由心而发所展示的运用,那不管好坏对错、人我是非,就全回到根本上,知道一切都是源于自心的选择。

  If we understand that the external phenomena is merely the mirror of our heart, we can get back to the root of all things, our heart, no matter what happened - good or bad, right or wrong, knowing that every manifestation is the result of our heart’s choices.

  好比一棵树,外缘如枝叶,为次要;内心如树根,为主要。主次顺序清晰了,我们就能主动运用自心。

  Take a tree as an example. The external conditions are like the branches that are secondary to a tree; while the internal cause is like the roots that are primary. Only when we are clear about this order, can we have the initiative to use our heart.

  先不急于改变事相,心主动作意,接受因果,停止对抗;知道一切有为法皆缘生缘灭,本不可得;直下回归清净平等无碍之实相,那感恩并支持周围的人和事物是必然的。

  Following such order, we no longer rush into changing the phenomenon itself, instead we first train ourselves to stop resisting unfavorable results and accept the law of cause and effect. If we deeply understand that all conditioned phenomena are interdependent-arising and -ceasing or illusory by nature and can get back to its inherent purity, perfection and no-obstruction, we will be thankful and supportive of everyone and everything around us because they inspire our enlightenment.

  了解了种种法是由心而生,就会锁定并内观自心世界,因为它才是真实的法界。不是割裂的,不是对待的,是如实的。守护心外无法,能使我们的人生变得简单从容,舒展自在

  If we understand that all phenomena are created by our heart and that there is nothing truly existing outside it, we will be able to introspect into the true and root internal world, rather than pay attention to a divisive and dualistic external world. It will make our life simple, free and light-hearted.
