你僅是稻殼還是稻穀(穗)

 

ARE YOU MERE HUSK OR THE GRAIN? 你僅是稻殼還是稻穀(穗)

 

在收成的季節裡,農夫拿著一個大篩子,把所有的稻子放到裡面,站在一個高台上,然後搖晃著篩子。當做完後,結果怎樣?你有沒有看過這種場景?怎樣呢?如果它只是稻殼,它就會隨風飛走,然後消失不見。如果有穀子在裡面,那它就會掉到地上,然後留了下來。我們的人生也是如此,我們必須要有信心。什麼?信心。信心是我們很重要的東西。在生命諸多狀況浮現時,你是否能夠以平靜、穩定的心及信心,同時面對所有的狀況呢?⋯⋯假如你沒有信心,假如你恐懼,那你就會像那稻殼隨風而去,你成不了大事。你將會隨波逐流,這種人將會一文不值。但是,如果你有信心,你將能找到基礎。當你對一切有信心,當你是寧靜安詳時,那時一切都將會各居其所。

 

從你身上,神只期望一樣東西「你堅定的信心」。假如你的信心很快就動搖了,如果它太常不停地動搖,或者假如你很了解,當困難突然來臨時,你是沒有任何信心的,這就和稻殼是類似的。現在所剩的就是「你到底只是稻殼,還是稻穀(穗)?」


生命中總有許多事件發生!許多的狀況出現。在這些情況中,你能夠維持你內心的平靜嗎?你的工作是,去維持你在這世間的平靜。在這世上,並非事事順心甜美。有些甜美,有些苦澀。如果你是以信心為基礎,就像稻殼中帶著穀粒一般,你就會進步。這些掉在地上的穀粒被收集成一袋,然後被移植到其他地方,或以其他的方式被使用。


下定決心,「不論發生什麼,我都會堅持下去。我會牢牢地站穩,神一直都在保護我,不論發生了什麼,我絕不會放棄,神都一直在幫著我。」這就足夠把你拉上來了。在各種情況中保持你內心的安詳。你只要做這些就夠了,我們會處理其他的事情。 

 

維持你的平靜,你要做的就只有這個。如果你該做所有的事,而你卻什麼也沒做,那是不對的。不可能的。起碼你必須向前踏出一步。保持內在平靜安詳。「喔,什麼也沒發生,我一件事也沒成。」在這種狀況下,你還能夠大笑,然後會了解你一直都被保護著。這世界充滿著愛,每個人內在都充滿著愛,你心裡必須了解這一點。


你曾經用這種觀點看待世界嗎?每當你處在人群裡,你曾經這樣看著他們,心裡想著「這一切都是愛」嗎?去這樣想一次,然後去觀察,不論是今天,明天,還是某一天。甚至就是現在,這裡有一群人。只要一次,仔細地看著他們每一個人,然後去感覺那存在每個人身上的愛。


 

整個世界就是個慶典。這裡的市集、廟會不斷地在發生著,慶典每天都在發生。鸚鵡、布榖鳥,還有其他的鳥兒都在唱著歌,演奏著naadaswaram(南印度一種像小喇叭的樂器),所有的鳥兒都在演奏著naadaswaram。遊行一直都在進行著,我們是在隊伍中遊行著的布偶。所以,只要一次想著每個人都是愛。


你的生命應該是快快樂樂的。所有的日常工作都有起伏,而這些都是自然的。如果有個身體,它會感冒、咳嗽、發燒或是其它別的,然後它會離開。但是,你要仔細地去了解,快樂一直都根植在你內在,這就是所知的purashaartha。我們的愛、信心和信念都要根深地固;然後其他的就會自己運行著。(全文完)(取自古儒吉《Know your Mindpp55-58

ARE YOU MERE HUSK OR THE GRAIN?


During the time of reaping the harvest, the farmer holds a broad sieve and puts all the grain into it and stands on an elevated platform and shakes the sieve. What happens when that is done? Have you seen this scene? What happens? If it is mere husk, it just flies away in the air and is lost. If grain is present, then it falls to the ground and stays.
So too in our life, we must have faith. What? Faith. Faith is something which we have inside us. When many situations surface in life, are you able to face all of them with peace, with a stable mind and faith? If you do not have faith, if you go into fear, then you will fly away into the air, like the husk. You will be nowhere. You will not have anything to hold onto. Such people will have no value at all.
But
⋯⋯

if you have faith, you will be able to find ground. When you have faith that every thing be alright, when you are in peace, then everything will settle down.
God expects only one thing from you, “Your unshakeable faith.” If your faith shakes very quickly, if it keeps shaking too often, or if you realize that you do not have any faith at all when difficulty strikes, then it is akin to being like the husk. The rest is whether” you are mere husk or the grain “?


How many events take place in life! Many situations arise. Are you able to maintain your equanimity in those conditions? Your work is to maintain your equanimity in this world. Not everything in the world is sweet; something are sweet and something are bitter. If you are grounded with faith like the husk with grain, then you will progress. The grounded grains are gathered in a sack and replanted else where or used in some manner.
Take this decision,” Whatever happens I will be there. I will be grounded. God’s protection is there on me. Whatever happens, I will never go down. I always have God’s hand with me.” This much is enough to pull you up. Keep your mind in peace in all situations. It is enough if that much is done by you. We will take care of everything else.

 

Maintain your equanimity. You have to do only this. It is not right if you have to do everything and you do nothing. Not possible. You have to take at least one step forward. Be in peace and equanimity. ” Oh, nothing happened. None of my work happened. “- if you are able to laugh in such situation, then understand that you have protection with you. The world is filled with love. Everybody has love inside them. You have to see that in your mind.


Have you ever seen with this view? Whenever you are in a crowd, have you ever watched the crowd and thought in your mind that ‘ all is love’? Once think in this manner and look, either today or tomorrow or some some day. Even now there is a crowd. Just once look at everybody in this crowd and feel the love present in everybody.
The whole world is a celebration. Fair happens here constantly, celebration happeds here everyday. Parrot, cuckoo and other birds sing and play naadaswaram (a South Indian traditational instrument like a trumpet). All the birds play naadaswaram. Procession is moving constantly. We are idols who are moving in the procession. So for once think that everybody is love.


You should be happy in life. All other business involve ups and downs; all that is natural. If there is a body, then it will get a cold, cough, fever or something else and it will go away. But take care to see that happiness is always established in you. That is known as purashaartha. Our love, faith and belief should be deep-rooted; then everything else moves on its own.
