  • 法身大士

    法身大士

    法身,為法界本體身,它周遍含容,無邊無量,離形融相,為萬物(包括人)之源頭,和其持續變化之動力與可能。 明心見性者,找到了這本體法身,體悟到這無常身心世界之背後,是這不生不滅,不一不二之永恆法身。故短暫身心衍生出來的對立顛倒與煩惱,不再顯得那麼緊迫和苦惱。肉體的無常變化,生滅往來,就像浩瀚花園裡的微細鳥蟲般渺小和虛幻。由小的個人身心悟到大的無量法身,故名法身大士。 覺悟法身大士後,還有後續功夫。先要做到自身之穩定(十住),再實行到生活點滴中(十行),繼之擴大心量至所有時空(十迴向)。到達個人層面的圓滿後,下一步是在出離心中協助其他眾生達到同樣的圓滿(十地)。直至到達無眾生可度之等覺妙覺位(離我人眾生壽者相),為成佛,涅槃,無上正等正覺。 真理水平999

  • 聆聽,欣賞,接納

    聆聽,欣賞,接納

    你懂身邊人嗎? 利益關係和情感關係外,他是個什麼樣的人? 有什麼的故事和追求? 你懂這世界嗎? 家庭教育,學校認知,和媒體描述外,這世界是如何運作的?跟我是什麼關係? 你懂自己嗎? 不同的社會角色,和面具背後,我到底是什麼?在無邊的生命洪流裡,和多元世界中,我要成為一個什麼樣的人? 自己都未認識清楚時,就認為自己了解其他人,及對其他人作出隨意的批判和評價,是自以為是的無知和莽撞,除增長我慢和製造混亂外,一無是處。 更好的態度,是保持謙虛和尊重的心態,去聆聽,欣賞,和接納。這樣做,會帶來知見的增長,心量的擴大,和生活的和諧美滿。 老子云:知不知,上(知道自己不知道,為上);不知知,病(唔知道自己不知道,扮知道,是病)。

  • lunchtime meditation 問答

    lunchtime meditation 問答

    問: 屋企人耐不耐嘈交,如果睇法/立場/我相/執著都是短暫虛幻,是否可以一概不理? 答: 前半啱,後半要再深究。雖然睇法/立場/我相/執著是虛幻,但沉醉其中嘅人嘅感受卻是很真實的(對於他們,和感受著他們的你)。怎樣面對,要睇你採取什麼立場,和應世智慧如何。 問: 嘗試同佢地講道理,無人聽,反而更反感。 答: 小乘人,可以處理好自己煩惱偏見,柄埋深山裡頭,做到逍遙自在。但在城市中,面對周邊人既煩惱偏見,就要用大乘的工具先至有辦法處理。 問: 大乘什麼工具? 答: 首先是六道波羅蜜: 布施:放開對寧靜和安靜的執著 持戒:拒絕受瞋恚的狀態影響 忍辱:不抑壓,坦然面對和接受眾生的顛倒執著 精進:正念,正思惟,正行 (正不行) 禪定:定力,穩定,專一,覺知 般若:無我智,不二智 有六波羅蜜基礎後, 讓內在生命逐步開展至十波羅蜜: 方便:利他目標上,靈活還用身口意去幫助 願:肯定自己人生目標,和在屋企人關係上的定位 力:意志,毅力,耐力去實踐自己的目標和定位 智:世間智慧 (介不介入,誰介入,幾時介入,如何介入) 六度基礎有了後,後四波羅蜜是大乘人內在生命所自然開展出來,不是用大腦想出來的。 其後同學們有大量的世間智分享和討論,非常精彩。不屬吹水綺語,屬觀心處世工程。
