梦境与现实共存——生命是梦但这个梦是真实的

Sadhguru: A child once asked me, “Is life a dream or a reality?” I replied, “Life is a dream but the dream is true.” The ability to see life as a simultaneous condition of reality and dream is a great contribution of this subcontinent to the world. Everyone here grows up with a nodding familiarity of what is called “maya”. They know that the world we live in is both deeply real and unreal, true and relative, at the same time.

萨古鲁:一次有个小孩问我:“生命是梦境还是现实呢?”我回答他:“生命是梦但是这个梦是真实的。”这片大陆(印度)能够将生命视为现实和梦境并存,这是对这个世界的巨大贡献。在这里每个人成长的过程中,都会对“幻境(maya)”这个词有所耳闻。他们知道我们生存的世界真实与不真实,绝对与相对都是同时存在的。

This perspective imbues our understanding of myth with a rare refinement. Myth in this subcontinent was never mere fiction. Nor was it sterile fact. It was neither fanciful make-believe nor hard statistical data. It was never a question of either-or; it was both. It was timeless and immediate, all at once: a rich compound of imagination and insight, embodying a deep level of truth. That made it more profound than mere history.

这种视角使得我们对神话的理解尤为精深。在这片大陆上神话从来不仅仅只是虚构的故事。它也不是干巴巴的事实。它不是异想天开的虚构故事也不是晦涩难懂的统计数据。它从来不是对立的,而是辩证的。它即是永恒的也是即时的:它是想象力与洞见的结合,蕴含着深层次的真相。这让神话比单纯的历史更为深刻。

Shiva – Myth or History?

Shiva——神话还是历史?

When I speak of Shiva, the Adiyogi, as the source of yoga, I am often asked whether I am referring to him as myth or history, concept or reality, past or present. I say, “Both. He is a plume of smoke that can take any form and shape. But there is a steady fire behind that smoke. Yes, he is myth; at the same time, he does walk the earth.” If you are intense and focused enough, you know the fire that creates smoke. Smoke entertains us with a variety of forms. Fire can give us warmth, but if you want to really know it, you must be willing to burn to ashes.

当我谈论到Shiva,即Adiyogi(人类第一位瑜伽士)作为瑜伽的源头时,我常常被问到他是神话人物,还是历史人物;是一种概念还是现实,他是存在于过去还是现在。我会说:“都是,他是一缕烟雾,可以幻化成任何形态。但是烟的下面有一团熊熊火焰。是的,他是一个神话人物,但同时他也行走在大地上。”如果你足够地强烈和专注,你将知晓那创造了烟雾的火。烟雾可以变成种种形态,火会带我们温暖,但如果你想要真正懂得火,你必须愿意燃烧成灰烬。

The image of the ash-smeared Shiva is just that. He has burnt every shred of the sense of “me” and “myself”. That is why Shiva means “that which is not”. It is in burning all boundaries into ash that the boundless becomes a possibility.

浑身抹着灰的Shiva的形象就在于此。他烧掉了每一点关于“我”和“我的”认知碎片。这就是为什么Shiva意味着“无”。当所有边界化为灰烬时,无限才成为可能。

Magic of Life

生命的神奇

If you get lost in fact and non-fact, this trap of logic will deny you the magic of life. If you pay attention, you will see magic everywhere: a seed becomes a tree; a flower becomes a fruit; and well, two cells have become you. It is a world full of magic, missed by those imprisoned within narrow logical parameters.

如果你纠缠于现实和非现实的区别中,这个逻辑的陷阱会使你无法触及生命的神奇。如果你认真去看,你会看到神奇无处不在:一粒种子变成一个树;一朵花变成果实;当然还有,两个细胞变成你。这是一个充满神奇的世界,囚禁在逻辑的狭窄界限中的人会错失。

 

Doubtless, logic offers us a terra firma of fact upon which to stand. But the very space in which this firm ground exists is the magical source of all creation. Planet Earth, on which we stand, floats in infinite space that is the womb of creation. To stand firmly upon the ground and still reach out and touch the sky is the essence of the spiritual process.

无疑,逻辑帮我们建立了现实的立足之地。但是这立足之地正是存在于这神奇的创造之源中。地球,我们立足的地方,正是漂浮于无限太空(即创造的子宫)之中。坚实地立足于大地同时还能触碰天空就是灵性进程的本质。

Bharat is not a piece of geography, but a vibrant reverberation left behind by those who expounded the most intricate forms of logic but refused to be entangled in them. Instead, they evolved logic to a point where it became the access to the mystical and magical dimensions of existence. Adiyogi is the highest representation of these two seemingly opposite dimensions, cohabiting with impunity. It is our choice to appreciate or be astounded by the logic, or to use it as a plume to float to dimensions of the beyond. You can ride the plume of logic, but everyone has to come down to fire: either the fire of cremation or the fire of living consciousness.

婆罗多(梵文,指印度)不只是地理上的一块区域,而是那些阐释了最错综复杂的逻辑形式但拒绝陷入其中的先哲们留下的来充满活力的能量空间。更进一步的,他们将逻辑发展到可以进入到神秘与神奇维度的存在。Adiyogi是这看似相悖的两极共存体的最高体现。一个人可以只是欣赏逻辑,或被逻辑震惊到,或者我们可以使用逻辑、让它如羽毛般带我们飞到那超越的维度,这是我们的选择。你可以乘着逻辑的翅膀飞翔,但是每个人最终都会回到火中:或者是火葬时的火,或者是那跳动的意识之火。
