  • 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)。
