▍ Realizing having more thoughts is a good sign!

If you are new to meditation, it is normal to have ups and downs at the beginning of the practice.

At the beginning you may feel like it is not meaningful or making sense to meditate. When you practice again and again, then one day you may have some taste of meditation and feel quite happy and joyful and think “now I'm really learning meditation”.

After this feeling of calmness and peace, you realize that a lot of thoughts and emotions come and looks like it is becoming worse than before. What is the reason for that?

Using an analogy, if there is a river in the mountain and the river is muddy, you cannot see fish in the river. When the river becomes calmer and cleaner, you realize there are a lot of fish in the river. Actually, the fish was there the whole time but you did not see the fish because of the muddy water. Now you see a lot of fish in the river when river becomes calm and clear.

The same thing applies here with meditation. When we meditate, our mind begins to be calm and peaceful. Therefore, at the beginning it looks like there are a lot of thoughts and emotions. If you feel like you have more thoughts and emotion or feel like you are getting worse, then these are actually good signs!


▍ Being with the nature of reality, this is the beginning of wisdom

So here in Joy of Living level 1, we learn different meditation techniques, including meditation with form, sound, smell, taste, sensation, and pain.

With awareness, right is ok, wrong is ok, happy is ok, not happy is also ok. Everything is ok.

When we can be friends with everything, what is the use of resistance, hatred, or aversion? This aversion will be freed, and attachment and grasping also will be freed.

The root of attachment and aversion is ignorance, which means not seeing the nature of reality. When we can be with form, sound, smell, taste, and sensation as they are, then we can be with the nature of reality, and that is the beginning of wisdom.

When we begin to have wisdom, ignorance begins to dissolve. So what we call the three poisons or the three roots of suffering - ignorance, aversion and craving - they will also dissolve.


▍ The two dimensions of the luminosity of mind

Awareness has the same meaning here as your mind consciousness. This mind is like a lamp. A lamp has two qualities.

1. Self-luminosity
The lamp illuminates itself. So if there is a flame then the flame is the light. You don't need to use a flash light to see the flame because it illuminates itself.

2. Illuminating others
If you light the lamp in the dark room, it illuminates everything in the room and you can see everything in the room because of it.

Similarly, you can see me, hear my voice, smell the scent or have the sensation of everything here, these are all because of the aspect of mind that it can illuminate others. It also includes having thoughts and emotions. Without this mind, these are not possible.

And at the same time, mind itself is luminosity, awareness, and consciousness. Even when there is no object, it can still know itself, this is the aspect of mind that is illuminating itself.

▍發現念頭變多,其實是好的徵兆!

如果你是禪修的初學者,可能會在禪修過程中,出現很多上下起伏的感受。

剛開始你可能會覺得禪修沒有太大的意義,當你一再的練習後,直到某一天你突然有了一種禪修的體驗和法味,那麼你將會感到非常地愉悅,這時候你會感受到自己真正進入禪修了。

但是在這樣的喜悅和平靜之後,會有一堆念頭或情緒跟著跑出來,看起來甚至比沒有禪修前的狀況更糟,為什麼會這樣呢?

舉例來說,我們無法在混濁的河流中,看見水中的魚群,而當河流變得清澈平緩時,我們便看得見了,事實上魚群一直都在那。

因此,當我們禪修時,心變得更加平靜穩定,自然會感覺到更多念頭和情緒,對於初學者而言,如果你感受到念頭變得更多,這其實是一種好的徵兆!


▍ 與實相同在,即是智慧的開端

在開心禪一階課程,我們學到了各種禪修的方法,例如:聲音禪修、色相禪修、身體禪修、疼痛禪修......等。

對於覺知來說,對也好、錯也好 ; 快樂也好、不快樂也好,這一切都沒有問題。

當我們能夠和這一切做朋友時,又何必再去抗拒、憎恨或者厭惡什麼呢? 這時「瞋」便會由此解脫,同樣地「貪著、執取」也會跟著解脫。

而貪與瞋的根源是「無明」,無明指的是沒有看見事物的本來面目。當我們和色相、聲音、氣味、味道、觸覺等在一起時,即是與實相同在,這就是智慧的開端。

一旦具足智慧,「無明」就會開始消融,而痛苦的根源——貪、瞋、癡三毒,也就隨之轉化。


▍心之明性有兩個面向

覺知即是自心,也就是「知道」。有一個譬喻,心如同一盞燭光,而燭光有兩個特質:

1.自明
火焰本身就是光,不需要再用手電筒去照亮火焰,燭光本身就能照亮它自己。

2.照明其他
當你在黑暗的房間中把燈點亮,它照亮了一切,使你可以看見房間的所有物品。

同樣地,你能看到、聽到、聞到......,這一切感知就是心「照明其他」的面向,包括念頭和情緒,如果沒有心,這一切都不會發生。

於此同時,心本身就是明性、明光,就是覺知、意識,儘管沒有對境,心仍然可以知道它自己,也就是「自明」的面向。

什麼是「開心禪」呢?「開心禪」就是喜悅地生活。

我們要如何能夠生活在喜悅當中呢?有兩件很重要的事情:

第一、發掘內在本具的良善,以及真實的自性,也就是去探索「我們是誰?」

當我們向外去尋找快樂時,你所找到的快樂都是短暫的,名利、權力、財富......這些快樂如同股票市場及海上的波浪一樣,總是起起伏伏。

而事實上我們一直都是完美和自由的,內在本具的自性與良善,以及證悟的特質,始終與我們同在,而真正的問題出在:我們並沒有認識出來。

第二、讓一切都成為我們的朋友、快樂及解脫的因。

我們可以運用一切對境,來發掘我們內在的特質。哪怕是障礙、痛苦、負面情緒,以及色、聲、香、味......等一切萬法,都能成為與內在本具特質連結的助緣,所有障礙都能轉化成機會,問題皆能轉為解決的方法。


▍ 太靠近所以看不見,太容易所以不相信

開心禪一到三階,能夠讓我們認出24小時都與你我同在的三個特質:

1.覺知 2.愛與慈悲 3.智慧

而開心禪一階的重點在「覺知」。什麼是覺知?

覺知就是這份知道和意識,同時也是自心。但是這個本具的特質與我們太靠近,所以我們看不見,因為太容易,所以很難相信。

現在問問大家,有多少人可以看到我的手?

有99%的同學都選擇「是」,而這樣的知道,就是「覺知」。
選擇看不到的,同樣也是「覺知」,因為「覺知」知道你能看到,也知道你看不到。

(仁波切彈指)大家能不能聽到任何的聲音?

有100%都選擇聽到,這就是「覺知」。
如果有人選擇聽不到,同樣也是「覺知」。你知道你聽不到,這就是覺知。

這樣的知道,就是你的心,你並非石頭,並且具有覺知 ; 透過你的心,可以看到、聽到、有著念頭和情緒,你可以感受、思考。因此「覺知」也稱為明性或明光。

當我們知道如何與自心同在時,就能明白:實際上,這種完美、本具的特質——覺知,一直以來都與我們同在,也始終是解脫的、清淨的、當下的,從來沒有被困住,永遠是自由的。


▍透過禪修,與清淨自由的「天空」連結

在傳統的比喻裡:覺知猶如天空,而念頭、情緒、感知、聽到、看到、聞到......這一切都如同天空中的雲朵。

但我們現在只看到念頭、情緒、感知,透過耳朵聽到聲音,透過鼻子聞到味道,透過身體產生觸覺......,我們看到的只是雲朵,而看不到天空本身、基礎的特質。

開心禪一階,主要就是讓我們慢慢與覺知連結,與天空本身連結。

什麼是「禪修」?「禪修的精髓」是什麼?這些見地都是在智識上的理解。當我們知道了「禪修的精髓」即是「覺知」後,要如何能夠將見地帶入經驗的層面呢?

這就要透過實際的練習,也就是禪修。

2021 Tergar Asia Online Course|Joy of Living 1 Session1 Excerpt

What is “Joy of Living”? Joy of Living means living our life joyfully.
So how can we live our lives with joy? There are two important things here.
Firstly, we need to discover our basic innate goodness, which is our true nature, and to explore “Who we are?”.

The problem is that we are often looking for real happiness out there. When we look outside, we may find happiness temporarily. We may find happiness from wealth, fame, power, and the environment, but these are all temporary. Then our happiness becomes like the stock market, or it becomes like the waves of the ocean.

Actually, we are already wonderful and freedom is with us all the time. That basic innate goodness is who we are. All these wonderful qualities are right now with us, within all of us. We all have this basic innate goodness or what we call the enlightened nature within all of us but the problem is that we do not recognize this.

Secondly, we need to make everything our friend, as the cause of happiness and liberation. We can use all objects to explore our innate qualities. These objects can be obstacles, suffering, negative emotions, forms, sound, smell and taste. All these objects can help us link with our innate qualities and turn all obstacles into opportunities, turning problems into solutions.

▍ Too close and we do not see; too easy and we do not believe it.

Joy of Living level 1 to level 3 can help us recognize three innate qualities which are with us 24 hours a day. They are 1. awareness, 2. love and compassion, and 3. wisdom.

Joy of Living level 1 is about “Awareness”. So, what is awareness?
Awareness is the knowing, which is already there within you. However, since this quality is too close to us, we cannot see it. Also, it is too easy and therefore hard to believe.

I have some question for all of you: How many of you can see my hand?

Okay so you if you can see please say “yes”. [According to the poll], 99% of you can see. So, that is awareness.

And another question is, how many of you can hear the sound? [Rinpoche is snapping his fingers]. There are 100% of you who can hear, so that is awareness. And today nobody said that they cannot hear. Even if someone were to say that they cannot hear, that is also awareness because they are aware of “cannot hear”, and that is awareness.

This knowing is basically your own mind. If you are not unconscious you have mind, right? You are not a rock and you have consciousness. Through this mind, you can see, hear, have thoughts and emotions. So, the mind has the ability to see, hear, feel and think. That is awareness and sometimes we call it clarity or luminosity.

When we begin to know how to be with our own mind, we can then understand. Actually, the fundamental quality of this mind is wonderful, and this awareness is totally free. The awareness is pure, it is with us all the time and is always present. Awareness will never be trapped and it is always free.

▍ Through meditation, connect with the pure and free “sky”.

In a traditional example, we liken the fundamental quality of awareness to the sky. Our thoughts, emotions, perception, seeing things, hearing things, feeling taste and smell - all these are what we call clouds in the sky.

So normally what we see are only thoughts, emotions, feelings, and then the perceptions. From the eyes, we can see; from the ear, we hear sound; from the nose we smell; from the tongue, we taste and from the body, we have sensations. We do not see the fundamental qualities but only see the cloud. We do not see the sky, which is a foundational quality.

The purpose of Joy of Living level 1 is for us to gradually connect with the awareness itself, that is, to connect with the sky itself.

What is meditation about? What is the essence of meditation? These are views from the intellectual level. So now that we know that the essence of meditation is awareness, how can we bring that view into the experiential level? We need to do this through actual practice and that is meditation.
