道路 Path

有沒有試過黑暗里把手靠在另一人手上?
過了一會兒,就感覺不到了那手的存在。這時就會動一動自己的手,感覺又回來了。

Have you ever tried to place your hand on other's hand in the darkness? After a while, you won't feel the existence of that hand. Then you will move a bit and the touch-feel come back.

為何你要動一動呢?感覺不到就代表不存在嗎?所以你動了一動。這動一動代表你覺得存在是必須被感覺的。

Why you want to move a bit? You can't feel mean that hand is non-exist? Therefore you move a bit. You believe existence must be able to feel.

可是存在就是存在,它並沒有因為你動還是不動而消失。感覺不到,就放鬆下來,別去動,因為它還是存在的。別恐懼,要信任,因為它還是存在的。

However, existence is existence. No matter you move or not move, it won't disappear. When you can't feel, relax and don't move, because it still exist. Don't panic and just trust, because it still exist.

恆久的痛苦就感覺不到,恆久的快樂就感覺不到。感覺不到時,就動一動。所以生命就變成鐘擺一樣,盪來盪去。所以我們製造痛苦,那樣快樂就顯現出來。我們開始設定條件,讓自己克服不必要的條件,經歷痛苦,然後得到快樂來舒緩自己。可是,這種快樂只是短暫的,很快的自己又感覺不到了,然後又開始搖鍾擺。

Pain for long time then you can't feel, happy for long time then you can't feel too. Therefore life is like a pendulum, swing left and right. We create pain and thus the happy will be shown. We start to set condition, let ourselves walk through the pain to remove condition, and lastly obtain the happy to please us. But this happy is only short term. You won't feel it again very soon then you start to swing the pendulum again.

很多人奮鬥去買心中的車,而有一天他買到了,也很開心。等過了幾天,就變成了幾天的舊車。親戚朋友讚歎一番后,就沒有人再談論車了,又感覺不到快樂了。然後又開始計劃另一輛更大的車,或其他替代。

Many people work hard to buy the dream car and one day he manage to buy it and very happy. After few days, the car becomes few days old car. Relative and friend praise how nice the car but nobody will discuss again after that. He can't feel the happy again. Then he plan again to buy another super dream car or other alternative.

所以屋越換越大,伴侶換了一個又一個。小時候的一個玩具可以百玩不厭,長大了卻連看也不想看。甚至有些人自瘧,來換取自己的快感。人自來到世界,這鐘擺從不動到越擺越大,越搖越猛,變成瘋狂。

House become bigger and bigger, partner change one and another one. A toy can never be bored when kid, and don't even look at glance when grow. Extreme people will hurt and maniac their body to change for the happy. Human born to this world, this pendulum from idle and then starting to swing, swing higher and higher and lastly become mad.

"快樂痛苦"就是一個字,就像一枚錢幣的兩面。我們很聰明的看到這兩面,卻不知道其實它只是一個錢幣。就像鐘擺的搖動,其實都是系在同一條線上。
有智慧的人就讓這鐘擺別搖動這麼激烈。設定簡單容易的條件,然後讓自己輕鬆地得到快樂。

"Happy-pain" is one word, it just like the two faces of coin. We cleverly see the two faces but never know that it is just ONE coin. Similar to the swinging pendulum, it tied on the ONE string actually. Wise man will control to minimize the swing of the pendulum. Wise man set easy condition and then easy to get the happy.

其實,條件根本就是不必要的,快樂本來就存在。根本就不需要去擺動鐘擺,讓它靜止,讓一切都回歸到"一"。
那麼 你就真正的走向了道的入口。

Actually, condition is totally unneeded, happy is always existence. Don't need to swing the pendulum and let it become idle, let everything goes back to "ONE".
Then You are truly on the right path to the greatest truth.

Jeff, to me, every feeling is a state of mind. If we learn to control our state of mind, consistently happy, we would be happy for a longer time. We do not need material things to do the trick! Seeing a child laugh, a flower bloom, an old couple holding hands, rainbow in the sky etc can already bring happy thoughts to me...

LG, indeed enjoying the natural and simple, little thing around us is simply great. However, my point is not about this and also not about any trick to make us happy.
If we still have the thought of control and have "me" in the mind, the eternal happiness will not happen to us. Bow down, no control, let the life flow through, you never see a child control but they are the most happiness.

做莫酱玄的。。。哈哈哈。。。我从来不制造痛苦去感觉快乐,那是不会感恩,不会珍惜拥有的人的举动,就是。。。闲人或废人之类的吧?哈哈哈。。。。

我也是才疏學淺。。。很多道理其實是無法用言語來說的。一說,就會有偏頗,就會有人開始去分黑白,區分對錯。
我們周遭都有很多聰明人。懂得欣賞一花一草來讓自己開心,其實這也是在擺動鐘擺。只是設定的比較容易,也就比較容易享有那暫時的快樂。
然而這些都是一些美的東西,如果是一些醜的東西呢?你會欣賞醜的而快樂嗎?這是可以思考的。
美與醜是絕對還是主觀?這又是可以思考的。
或者美與醜其實就是一體的?
所以佛家說“空”。

如果你回问‘你會欣賞醜的而快樂嗎?', 就代表你也在区分啊。看到醜的就不能快乐吗?其实,不执著也是很重要的。但是如果执著于不执著,那就难咯

不錯啊!你悟性很高!所以我說不能說咯。你看,我一說,你就會說我也在區分,而且這也不是我的本意。我一開始就說很多道理是不能說的,人類的語言是有限的。
