如何把练习带到一个新的水平?

Sadhguru discusses the inner workings of the spiritual process. One’s yogic practice, he explains, is an energy code that is calibrated to evolve and adapt to the practitioner.

萨古鲁讨论了灵性过程的内在运作。他解释说,一个人的瑜伽练习是一种能量代码,这能量代码可以随每个练习者的情况不断进化演变。

 

Question: Sadhguru, you said somewhere that the practices we do are programmed in such a way that once we evolve to a certain level, the practices continue to work on us in order to take us to the next level. Could you explain further what this means?

问:萨古鲁,你在某个地方说过,我们所做的练习是这样编制的,一旦我们进化到一定程度,这个练习会继续在我们身上起作用,以带我们到下一个级别。你能否进一步解释这是什么意思?

 

Sadhguru: To use an analogy – if you are old enough, you may have seen people blowing rings with cigarette smoke. These days, no one does this anymore, because it has become a crime to smoke in public. I knew an eccentric writer who used to write his name – Kailasham – with cigarette smoke, in Kannada script. You could see it for a few seconds before the smoke diffused, and people admired him for that. Like today you have stand-up comedians, he was a stand-up political satirist. And at the end of the show, he would write his name with smoke. That was his trademark, which also featured on all the posters for his show.

萨古鲁: 打个比方——如果你年纪够大的话,你可能看过别人吐烟圈。现在没有人会这样做了,因为现在在公共场合抽烟是犯法的。我认识一个古怪的作家,他曾经用香烟烟雾吹出他的名字——Kailasham。在烟雾散去之前,你可以看到它持续几秒钟,人们为此很仰慕他。就像今天,我们有单口喜剧演员一样,他是一单口政治讽刺艺人。在演出结束时,他会用烟雾吹出他的名字。那是他的标志,这个标志也会出现在他所有的演出海报上。

 

You can use the same opening of the mouth in so many different ways – you can speak, whistle, sing, or blow smoke rings. What comes out makes the difference. If it is just air, it becomes a whistle. If the sounds come from your vocal chords, it could become a song. If smoke comes out, it could become different forms.

同样的一张嘴,你可以以不同方式来使用它——你可以说话、吹口哨、唱歌、或吐烟圈。差别只在于从嘴里冒出的东西。如果只是空气,它就成了口哨。如果声音从你的声带发出,它可能会成为一首歌。如果烟冒出来,它会形成各种不同的形状。

 

The Energy Code

能量代码

 

A yogic practice is an energy code that is structured in a certain way. It evolves and finds expression according to your present nature. Using the same simple instrument, you can do many things depending upon your expertise and your capabilities. Similarly with a yogic practice – it is a code that adapts to who you are. All human beings are made of the same flesh and bone, but in how many different ways they take shape! Both beautiful and ugly patterns occur. Likewise, you can use spiritual practices in a beautiful or ugly manner.

瑜伽练习是以某种方式构建的能量代码。它会根据你现在的特性得以进化。同一个简单的仪器,你可以用它做很多事情,这取决于你的专业知识和技能有多高。瑜伽练习也与此类似——它是一种代码,能随你的特性而相应调整。所有人长的都是同样的血肉和骨头,但是看看他们长成了多少种不同的样子!有美丽的模样,也有丑陋的模样。同样,你也可以用美丽或丑陋的态度对待灵性练习。

 

I took twenty-one years to filter the occult out of the Shambhavi Mahamudra. This was to eliminate ugly things that you could otherwise do once you are empowered by this practice. You may want to read someone else’s mind so that you can exploit them. Or you may want to predict someone’s future so that you can con them into something. Or you may want to destroy them simply by looking at them. If you have control over your life energies, you can propel someone to enlightenment or to destruction – both are possible. Depending on who you are, accordingly you use and transform your energies.

我花了二十一年的时间去除了香巴维里面的神秘术部分。这是为了防止有人利用这个练习赋予的能力,去做丑陋的事情。你可能会想读取别人的念头,以利用、剥削他们。或者你可能想要预测某人的未来,好让他们上你的钩。或者你可能会想用你的眼神去摧毁他们。如果你能控制你的生命能量,你可以将一个人推向开悟或毁灭--两者你都可能做到。取决于你是怎样的人,你使用自身能量以及转化自身能量的方式也会相应有所不同。

 

Therefore, it takes a certain care to rule out the negative when transmitting a process like Shambhavi. But beyond that, what kind of expression you give it – whether you use it to heal yourself of back pain or for a higher level of existence – is up to you. The practice is set for wellbeing, but your idea of wellbeing still matters. Your idea of wellbeing may just be a little better health and success in what you are doing, and you think that is it. That is why I am saying, “Don’t set a goal – let it evolve.” Let it evolve to a place that you could not imagine. Do not stay stuck in something that you already know. As you evolve, the practice functions at a higher level as well.

因此,在传授像香巴维这类练习时,特别需要排除负面因素。但除此之外,你给予它什么样的表达——无论是用它来治疗自己的背痛,还是用它来通往更高层次的存在——这都由你。这个练习是为了福祉而设的,但你对福祉的概念仍是关键。你认为的福祉,可能只是想比现在更健康一点,想在事业上获得成功,而你认为这样就够了。这就是为什么我说“不要设定目标——让它进化”。让它进化到你无法想象的程度。不要卡在已知的东西上,随着你的进化,这个练习也会在更高层次上运作。

 

Free Drinks!

免费饮料!

 

It happened on a certain day. A man came into a bar and announced, “Free drinks for everyone! It’s on the house.” He pointed at the bartender and said, “Even for you.” Everyone drank, including the bartender and himself. When the time to pay came, it turned out the guy did not have a dollar in his pocket. The bartender punched him in the face, picked him up, and threw him out of the bar. Next day evening, the man came back and again announced, “Free drinks for everyone!” He looked at the bartender, “Except you.” The bartender stood in front of him threateningly and said, “May I ask why not for me?” The man said, “You tend to get violent when you drink.”

某一天。一名男子走进酒吧,宣布:“酒水免费,大家请畅饮!店家请客。”他指着酒保说,“也包括你。”每个人都喝了酒,包括酒保和他自己。到时间该付帐时,却发现这家伙口袋里一块钱也没有。酒保一拳将他揍倒,然后把他拎起来扔出了酒吧。第二天晚上,那个男子回到酒吧又宣布:“所有人免费畅饮!”他看着酒保说:“除了你。”酒保站在他面前恶狠狠地说道:“请问为什么不请我?”男子说,“因为你喝酒后会变暴力。”

 

The practices are calibrated in such a way that they work for you at your level of being. If I turn up the Shambhavi Mahamudra initiation, at least eighty to ninety percent of you will not be able to get up afterwards. Those who were initiated into Shoonya before the Dhyanalinga consecration would have experienced that. At that time, at least seventy to eighty percent of the people were not able to walk out of the initiation room. That is why we needed at least as many volunteers as there were participants, because many of them had to be carried, supported, or at least guided. They would be completely dazed. Back then, we were initiating people in such a way because we were looking for people who could hold the drink. This was important for the consecration that we wanted to do, and there was urgency to it.

这些练习已经被调整到能针对你现有的状态来起作用。如果我调高香巴维的开启(能量),那么在开启后,至少80%-90%的人会站不起来。那些在迪阿纳灵伽(Dhyanalinga)圣化之前被开启Shoonya的人肯定体验过这一点。那时候,至少70-80%的人都无法走出开启室。这就是为什么那时候,我们有多少学员,至少就需要多少个志愿者,因为许多人需要被抬出去,要有人扶着或至少被带着才出得去,他们会完全眩晕。那时候,我们就是这样进行开启的,因为我们在寻找把持得住“这杯酒”的人。这对我们要进行的(迪阿那灵伽)圣化非常重要,而且那时候时间很紧迫。

 

Calibrated to Grow

成长

 

Before the Dhyanalinga consecration, I had a project to fulfill – not mine but the one my Guru imposed on me. Now, it is just that if people want to grow, we provide them with the tools. If they do not want to, there is no rush. If you had seen me before the Dhyanalinga consecration, I was a totally different person. After the consecration was over, I consciously changed everything – from the way I walk, speak, dress, to the way I eat. People who knew me before and see me now think I have lost it, because I am not fierce enough anymore.

在圣化迪阿纳灵伽之前,我需要完成使命——不是我的,而是我的上师给我的。而现在,如果人们想成长,我们就为他们提供工具。如果他们不想,我们也不着急。如果你在迪阿纳灵伽圣化之前见过我,我那时候是一个完全不同的人。圣化结束后,我有意识地改变了一切——从走路、说话、穿着,到吃饭的方式。在圣化以前就认识我的人,他们现在看到我,都认为我已经不复从前了,因为我已经不够激烈了。

 

It is good the way it is now. Today, most people sit quietly during the initiation process, and afterwards, everyone happily goes home without any problem. That is because the initiation has been brought down in such a way that it suits everyone, as it is needed for them – nothing more, nothing less. It is calibrated to grow with you. We are not forcing you into a state that you are not ready for. If it goes ahead of you, it is great, but you will have some difficulty managing outside situations. We do not want to tone it down further, or else it becomes insipid. It still allows you to see there are possibilities and dimensions beyond your present level of experience. If you want to reach towards that, a little more preparation, and it will evolve by itself.

现在这样很好。今天大多数人在开启过程中都安静地坐着,开启过后,大家也快乐地回家,没有任何问题。那是因为开启(的能量)被调低了,这样就能刚刚好适应他们——不多、不少。它被调整到可以与你一起成长。我们并不会强迫你进入一个你没有准备好的状态。如果它走得比你快,这很好,但你在面对外在情形时会有些困难。我们也不想进一步调低,否则就会变得太平淡了。它仍然可以让你看到,超越你目前体验水平的可能性和维度是存在的。如果你想体验到这个维度,只要多一点点准备,它就会自行成长。

 

Love&Grace,
