#禪修的本質是覺知

什麼是覺知?#覺知就是知道。你知道你看到、聽到、嗅到、有感覺、有思想。如果你沒有念頭,你知道你沒有念頭。

#覺知是基本的意識。從這種基本的意識,念頭、情緒和知覺在當中往來。當你有情緒,情緒從覺知中生起,停留在覺知中,最後消融在覺知中。

#覺知猶如海洋;念頭、情緒和感受猶如波浪。波浪從海洋中生起、停留和消融在海洋中。所以,波浪的本質是水,即海洋。同樣地:#念頭和情緒如同波浪,無論是快樂與否,是忿怒、壓力或沮喪,念頭和情緒的本質是覺知。它們從覺知中生起、停留和消融在覺知中。

覺知就是單純知道。對覺知來說,愉悅與否,快樂或悲傷,任何感覺或無感覺都不重要。

#覺知猶如天空。天空是純淨、自由和不被污染的。覺知也是一樣,是純淨、自由和不被念頭和情緒所污染的。正如天空一樣,無論浮雲是多大或多灰,是多美或多醜,浮雲不會改變天空的本質。你不能射擊或燒燬天空;也不能阻擋或塗污天空。

我們的 #念頭、#感受、#情緒和知覺正如浮雲,但我們的覺知猶如天空。

一般來說,我們不知道天空,而且陷進浮雲中。因此,我們的生命如同股票市場般起伏不定。另一面,我們的本質是平和、清淨、平靜和純正的。
猶如天上的鳥,在天上飛但不懂天;或如水中魚,在水中游但不識水。我們跟牠們一樣,#我們在覺知中,#但我們不認出覺知。

#禪修的目標不是阻擋念頭、#把心空掉或製造一種特別的狀態;#而是要與覺知連結。對覺知而言,你知道與否,確定與否,迷惑與否,皆不重要。覺知常在,不能被阻擋。覺知是完全通透和自由,完美、純淨、平和以及24小時與你同在。你不用製造覺知,也不用阻擋情緒。多棒!

#各種禪修技巧的目的,#都是為了認出覺知及保持覺知。禪修的藏文是gom,意思是「使熟悉之」,#而禪修的練習就是熟悉你的心而已。

但是,很多人嘗試在練習禪修時,壓抑或阻擋念頭和情緒,壓抑愈多,念頭和情緒愈多。事實上,#你不用阻擋念頭和情緒的,讓它們來,也讓它們離去。禪修的本質是覺知,不是阻擋念頭和情緒。現今很多人以為禪修是「把心空掉」,這是一種誤解。#沒有念頭和情緒是不可能的,如果禪修的目標是這樣,請不要禪修了!

雖然有許多禪修技巧,但是禪修的本質是覺知。#當你知一,#便能全解!

在東方,很多人以為禪修是消除念頭或専注,不斷說:「專注!専注!專注!」但專注太強烈,便令你更繃緊。

在西方,很多人禪修為了尋找放鬆與平和,不斷說:「平和、平和、平和!」當你尋找平和,平和會告訴你,它很忙碌。

事實上,#人們想阻擋念頭和情緒是一種厭惡;#而期望尋獲放鬆與平和是貪執。#執著來自厭惡和貪著的結合,這導致我們不快樂。所以,#需要放下。厭惡和貪著正如油門和剎車掣一樣。有了油門和剎車掣,車子才能被駕駛;因為有厭惡和貪著,痛苦才得以連續地產生。

The Essence of Meditation is Awareness

What is awareness? Awareness is knowing. You know what you are seeing, hearing, smelling. You know what you are feeling or thinking. Even if you are not thinking, you know you are not thinking.

Awareness is the basic consciousness. In this basic consciousness, thoughts, emotions and perceptions come and go. When you have emotions, the emotions come from awareness, stay in awareness, and dissolve into awareness.

Awareness is like the ocean: thoughts, emotions and feelings are like the waves of the ocean. The waves come from the ocean, stay in the ocean, and dissolve in the ocean. So, what is the essence of waves? The essence of waves is water, the ocean. Similarly, for our thoughts and emotions - whether we are happy, unhappy, angry, stressed, depressed - these are like the waves of the ocean. But, the essence of all the thoughts and emotions is awareness. Thoughts and emotions come from awareness, stay in awareness, and dissolve into awareness.

However, for awareness - whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, happy or sad; whether you have feelings or not - it doesn’t matter.

Awareness is like the sky. The sky is always pure, free, and cannot be polluted. Similarly, awareness is pure, free, and cannot be polluted by thoughts and emotions. Just like the sky - no matter how big or dark is the cloud, or whether it is a beautiful or ugly cloud - the cloud does not change the nature of the sky. You cannot shoot the sky nor burn the sky. You cannot block nor paint the sky.

Our thoughts, feelings, emotions and perceptions are like the clouds, but our awareness is like the sky.

Yet, normally we don’t know about the sky and get trapped in the clouds. Our life is like the stock market, always going up and down. On the other hand, our essence is always peaceful, pure, calm and genuine.

Like the birds flying in the sky - they don’t know sky. Like the fishes swimming in the water - they don’t know water. Likewise, we are always in our awareness, which is peaceful, pure, calm and genuine - but we don’t recognise awareness.

The goal of meditation is not to block thoughts, nor to empty the mind, nor to make a special state of mind. The goal of meditation is to connect with awareness. For awareness - it doesn’t matter whether you know or don’t know, whether you are sure or not sure, whether you are confused or not confused - awareness is always there, and it cannot be blocked. It is completely transparent and free from these boxes. Awareness is always perfect, pure, peaceful, and it is with you 24 hours a day. You don’t need to make awareness, and you don’t have to block emotions. How nice!

The purpose of all the meditation techniques is to recognize awareness and to maintain the recognition. The Tibetan word for meditation, “gom”, means “becoming familiar with”, and the practice of meditation is to become familiar with your mind. That’s all.

However, many people try to suppress or block thoughts and emotions during meditation practice. But the more you suppress, the stronger the thoughts and emotions. Actually, you don’t need to block thoughts and emotions - just let them come, let them go. The essence of meditation is awareness. It’s not blocking thoughts and emotions. Nowadays, many people think that meditation is to “empty your mind”. That’s a misunderstanding. It is impossible not to have thoughts and emotions. If the goal is like that, then don’t meditate!

Although there are many meditation techniques, but the essence of meditation is awareness. When you know one, you know all.

In the East, many people think that meditation is to empty the thoughts or to concentrate: “I have to concentrate, concentrate…CONCENTRATE!” But, concentrating too hard makes you feel even tighter.

In the West, when people meditate, many are looking for relaxation and peace: “Peace, peace…PEACE!” Yet when you look for peace, peace will tell you it’s busy.

Actually, the hope of wanting to block thoughts and emotions is aversion; and the hope of seeking relaxation and peace is craving. Grasping comes from the combination of aversion and craving, and that makes us unhappy. So, just let go. Aversion and craving are like the accelerator and the brake in the car. Because there’s an accelerator and a brake, the car can be driven. Similarly, aversion and craving help create a continuous loop of suffering.

#看見概念就只是概念

當我們嘗試去看着這個 「不健康的我」,與此同時,我們已開始見到真正的實相。

這個「不健康的我」就是 #恒常、#單一和獨立三者的結合。恒常是指事物是永遠、持續以及你期待現實與你的期望是相符合。單一就是「我最好」,「我是第一」和「我最重要」,獨立是想去控制和一切都在你掌握之中。

但是,以上所說的恒常、單一和獨立,是確實存在嗎?當你看着這個「我」,你見到的是雙手、雙腿和身體;你也會見到你的心、感受和知覺等。這些都存在,但恒常、單一和獨立的我卻不存在。

舉例來說,當我們看見一群鳥在天上飛,有時候牠們飛行時會排成仿如飛機飛行的形態一樣,這就是飛機嗎?當然不是,只有鳥群。#在世俗諦的層次,#存在的只是眾多的組件。

又例如: 你曾否見過一群學生,排成國旗般的隊形嗎?這國旗是存在嗎? 不是,只有學生存在。

故此,一切事物都如此。當你見到事物顯現為恒常、單一和獨立,#這些都是幻象,#我們看不見實相。

當我們看着這個世界,我們接受一切事情就是如此。我們不是說幻象和概念是不好,但是,#最重要的是我們見到概念就只是概念。如果我們以為概念是真實的,這才是問題。

#如果你不知道概念就只是概念,#我們便見不到任何可能性。生命便會變得枯乾、堅固和冰封,我們只能見到黑與白。

Seeing Concept as Just Concept

When we try to look at the unhealthy sense of self, actually, just knowing about the unhealthy sense of self is the beginning of seeing the true nature.

The unhealthy sense of self is a combination of the concepts of permanence, singularity and independence. Permanence is manifested in the feeling that things are forever and consistent, and you expect reality to match with what you want. The feeling of singularity is the notion of “I am the best”, “I am number one” and “I am important”. Whereas for independence, it is about wanting to control and to have everything in your hands.

Do permanance, singularity and independence actually exist or not? When you look at the “me”, what you see are the arms, legs, and other body parts. You may also see the mind, feelings, perceptions… These exist. But the “me” that is permanent, single, and independent does not exist.

Let me give you an example. When we see a group of birds flying in the sky, sometimes these birds form a shape like an aeroplane. Is there actually an aeroplane? No, there is no aeroplane and what exist are just the birds. At the relative level, the pieces exist as multiplicity.

Another example is: have you seen a group of students forming the shape of a flag? Does the flag exist or not? Similarly, the flag does not exist, and what exist are the students.

So, everything is like that. When we see something as permanent, singular, and independent - all these are illusions and we don’t see the reality.

When we see the world, it is important to accept the way things are. We are not saying that illusions are bad, or concepts are not good. But it is important that we see concept as just concept. When we see the concept as real, that is the problem.

If you don’t know concept as just concept, then we cannot see the possibilities. Life becomes dry, fixed and frozen, and all we can see is black and white.
