掌握你的业力
发布日期:2017-04-13 15:43

Epigenetics, a branch of biology which studies how a human being’s behaviors and life experiences impact their DNA, and therefore can be passed on from generation to generation, is being explored by scientists today. However, in the yogic perspective, the influence of the past goes way beyond our ancestors, to the very first life form on the planet. In this article, Sadhguru explains the meaning of karma, a term long used and misused in different contexts. Explaining how very deep rooted its influences are, he also shows a way to get a “handle” over the complex structure that it is.

实验胚胎学(Epigenetics)现已成为科学家们的研究对象,它是生物学的一个分支,研究一个人的行为和生活经历是如何影响他的DNA并把基因代代传下去的。然而,从瑜伽的视角来看,过去的影响力远远超过我们的祖先,这种影响力可以追溯到地球上最原始的生命形式。在本文中,萨古鲁解释了“业力”的含义,一个在不同的背景中经常被使用并被误用的词。萨古鲁在解释业力的影响是多么根深蒂固的同时,也揭示了如何获取一个掌握这个复杂结构的“手柄”。

Sadhguru: Karma means action or the imprint of action which remains within us. The actions that your father performed are working and kicking up within you not just in your situation, but within every cell in your body. It is not so easy to get rid of your parents! You may have noticed that when you were eighteen or twenty, you completely rebelled against your father or your mother, but by the time you are forty or forty-five, you begin to speak like them, act like them, and even look like them. That is a hopeless way to live because if this generation is going to behave, act, live and experience life just the way the previous generation did, this is a wasted generation. This generation should experience life in a way the previous generation never even imagined. I don’t mean you should do something crazy on the street, I mean the way you experience life can be completely altered. It can be taken to the next level of experience.

萨古鲁:“业力”是指行为,或者保留在我们之内的行为印记。你父亲的行为不只在某种情形下才对你发挥作用,它在你身体的每一个细胞里。而摆脱父母的影响没那么容易!你或许已经注意到,你在18或者20岁的时候非常叛逆,完全不听从你的父母;但是,等到40或者45岁的时候,你的说话方式、行为方式,甚至外貌形象,都变得和他们一样。这是一种令人绝望的生活方式,因为如果这一代人按照上一代的方式去做事、生活和体验生命,那么这一代是荒废的一代。我们这一代人应该用上一代人从未想象过的方式去体验生命。我不是说你应该在大街上做些疯狂的举动,我的意思是,你体验生命的方式可以完全改变,并达到更高的经验水平。

The Primal Scream

原始的呐喊

But karma is not just yours, your father’s or your grandfather’s. The first life form, that bacteria or virus, that single-celled creature’s karma is also acting up within you, even today. Even the kind of bacteria you have in your body carries a certain behavioral pattern depending upon what kind of bacteria your parents or grandparents had. So, all the grand ideas you have about yourself, all the grand ideas you have about your person are very false. This is why we told you, it is all maya, because the way things are playing within you is such that almost everything you do is controlled by past information.

但业力并不只是你的,也是你父亲的,你祖父的。细菌或者病毒是最原始的生命形式,这种单细胞生物即使在今天也会作用于你。甚至你体内的细菌也带有一定的行为模式,而那是由你父母或者祖父母携带的细菌种类决定的。因此,你对自身的各种宏伟构想统统大错特错。这就是为什么我们告诉你,这一切都是幻境,因为业力对你的影响使得你的所作所为几乎都受制于过去。

 

If I tell you, “You don’t need to do anything, we will take care of you. Just sit and meditate twelve hours a day,” initially it may look like a great fortune, but after a month’s time, you will be going nuts. If you cross that madness, you will cross everything, but most people give up when the madness arises within them. They will freak and try to run away because it is not going to be easy. This is a primal cry of your father, your grandfather, your forefathers and the goddamn bacteria. Millions of lives, all of them will scream to find expression. They want to have their say. They will not let you go free just like that. You cannot ignore them because they throb in every cell in your body.

如果我告诉你,“你只要每天静坐12个小时,其它什么都不用做。我们来照顾你。”起初,你或许觉得这是天上掉下来的馅饼,但一个月以后,你就会发疯。如果你能跨越这个疯癫线,那么你能跨过所有障碍,但是大多数人在疯狂一出现时就半途而废。他们会变得异常,并想要逃离,因为继续下去并非易事。其实,这是一声原始的呐喊,来自你的父亲、你的祖父、你的祖先以及那该死的细菌。数以百万计的生命,全都尖叫起来以表达自己,希望有自己的发言权。他们不会让你自由行事,你也不能忽视他们,因为他们在你身体的每一个细胞中悸动。

 

“Does it mean to say I am hopelessly entangled?” Entangled for sure, but not hopelessly. From being a pashupata – a composite expression of animal nature, starting from that single-celled animal to the highest one – there is a possibility of becoming a pashupati. “Pashu” means life, “pati” means the Lord, the Lord of all life – one can leave all this behind and transcend.

“这是否意味着我只能无望地纠缠于其中?”纠缠是肯定的,但并非无可救药。自pashupata(Shiva的化身)——其呈现了从单细胞动物到高级动物的各种特征——形成伊始,世间的生命就存在着转变成pashupati的可能性。“Pashu”即生命,“pati”即王,“pashupata”即万灵之王——一个人可以超越所有的这些。

Get A Handle On Things

掌握事情的“手柄”

This must be understood, karma is not your enemy. Your unawareness of what is what, is your enemy. Karma is the memory of life. You are able to build this body the way it is built only because there is memory of life, right from that single-celled animal to every other form. The basis of your existence right now in the physical body is your karma. If all your karma is taken away, this moment you will shed your body. It is like pulling the plug on you. Karma is the glue, karma is that which has cemented you to the body.

你必须明白这一点,业力不是你的敌人;无知才是你的敌人。业力是生命的记忆。你之所以能够建造如此身躯只是因为它有生命的记忆,从单细胞动物一直到其它各种形式的生命。你如今的物质身,其存在基础就是业力。如果你所有的业力都被拿走,你就会脱离身体,就像是被拔去了身上的“插头”。业力如胶水一般把你和你的身体粘在一起。

 

You don’t have to change your body or your mind, what you need to do is find where the handle is. Right now, if you sit in the car, you seat-belt yourself. The seat-belt is a good thing, it could save your life. But suppose you seat-belt yourself in such a way that you cannot open it when you want to, this becomes your prison. When you get into the car, you close the door. It is a good thing. But suppose you got into the car and you cannot open the door, it is terrible. You just have to know where the handle is. Then, even if you have a mountain of karma, there is no problem.

你不必改变你的身体或者你的头脑,你需要做的是找到“手柄”。假设,现在你坐在汽车里,系上安全带。安全带本身是个好东西,它可以保护你的性命;但是如果你系安全带的方式使你想解开的时候不能解开,那么它就成为你的枷锁。上车之后关上车门是件好事,但是假设你关上以后打不开车门,那就糟糕了。你需要做的是找到“手柄”,这样,即使你的业力堆积如山,也毫无问题。

 

The problem has come not because of karma, the problem has come because you got entangled in it, you got enmeshed in it. If a little distance comes between you and your body, between you and your mind, then whatever the karma, it has no impact on you. You can still make use of it to be embodied and live, you can still maintain a certain individual character but it does not become a binding, it becomes a stepping stone.

问题的产生不是因为业力,而是因为你纠缠于它,陷于其中。如果在你和你的身体之间,你和你的大脑之间拉开一定的距离,那么无论你有着什么样的业力,它都对你没有影响。而且,你依然可以利用它来展现自己,来生活;你依然可以保持一定的个性,而它不会成为约束;它是一块踏脚石。

 

爱与恩典
