自我了悟意味着什么?
发布日期:2017-03-18 12:24

Q: I want to leave this daily routine and dedicate myself fully to understand the real “I.” But the moment I think of my family, everything takes the backstage. How do I balance this?

提问:我想要离开目前的世俗生活,并全心将自己投入于理解“真我”的修行。可当我想到自己的家庭,一切都变得次要。我应如何平衡两者呢?

 

Sadhguru: So, your family is living with a fake “you.” How horrible! When people hear the word “self-realization,” maybe it conjures up images in their minds of some Himalayan cave. I don’t want to talk about anything that is not yet in your experience because the moment we talk about it, you will lose touch with reality. If you start believing realities that are not yet in your experience, you will lose ground in the reality you are in.

萨古鲁:所以你的家人是和一个“虚假的你”一起生活。这太糟了!人们听到“自我了悟”这样的词语时,脑内浮现的可能是喜马拉雅山的洞穴。我不想去谈论那些你还没有在生命中体验到的事,因为当我们谈论这些,你就与现实失联了。你若去相信那些自己目前还没有切身体验到的事,会丢失自己所立足的现实根基。

 

Unfortunately, this is what has happened in the world in the name of spirituality and religion. God is not an enabling factor, God is unfortunately a disabling factor in most people’s lives because they believe God is going to take care of their food, their survival, their health, and their business. So, let us not talk about knowing yourself in some mystical way or another dimension. Let us talk about knowing yourself in the most practical way that we can look at.

不幸的是,这就是当今世界灵性和宗教界发生的事。在大多数人的生活中,上帝不是一种增强能力的因素,反而不幸地成为一种降低能力的因素,因为人们相信上帝会安排好他们的食物、生存、健康、生意。那么,让我们先不要谈论如何在神秘或其他维度上了解自我。我们先来谈谈如何以最实际的方式了解自我。

 

Reading Your User’s Manual

阅读你的使用手册

If you want to work with anything, for example let us say you want to drive your motorcycle or car. The better you grasp what the machine is, the more control and freedom it gives you as to what you can do with it. Whether you are using your car, computer or even your cell phone, the more you know about it the better you can use it. Or even with the people around, your own family, friends or people who work with you, the better you know them the better you can deal with them. Whatever you wish to deal with, the more you know about it, the better you can handle it.

如果你想使用任何东西,比方说你想驾驶你的摩托车或汽车,你越了解这台机器,就越能掌控它,它就越能带给你自由,以用于做你想做的事。无论是你的车、电脑、还是手机,你越熟悉就能越完全地使用它们。甚至是你周围的人,你的家人、朋友、同事,更好地了解他们,就能更好地同他们打交道。无论你想解决什么,你越了解它,就能越好得处理它。

 

Why is it that you don’t see this about yourself? The more you know about this piece of life, which you refer to as “myself,” the better your grasp over this and the better your ability to handle it, which definitely gives you more access to life. In other words, self-realization is a way of knowing this piece of life in a much better way than the way you currently know it. You may know something about your thought process, your personality and your emotions – you may have been psycho-analyzed already – but you still do not know anything about the nature of this life – how this happens, where it comes from, where it goes, what is its nature. If you do not know anything about the machine that you are handling, you will handle it by accident.

为何你没发现对你自身来说也是如此呢?你越了解这个生命,也就是你所说的“自我”,就越能把握它,越能高效处理它,这绝对有助于你更深入生命。换言之,自我了悟就是了解这个生命的一种方式,这种方式远比你的目前所知要透彻。你或许对自我的思维方式、性格、情感有所了解,你或许已做过一些心理分析,但你仍对生命本质一无所知:生命是如何发生的?它从哪里来?要到哪里去?本质是什么?你若对自己正在操作的这台身体机器一无所知,你就会随机地操控它。

 

Please look at this. What do you know about this piece of life? When you live accidentally and exist here as an accident, you are a potential calamity. Whether you actually become a calamity or not, you are a potential calamity. If you live here as a potential calamity, to be anxious and fearful is very natural, and that is how life is happening. 

请看一下吧。你对这个生命有何了解呢?当你活在偶然之中,像个偶然事件一样存在,你就是个潜在的灾难。无论你是否真的成为了一个灾难,你就是个潜在的危险。以这种方式活着,人自然会有焦虑和恐惧,而这就是正在发生的。

 

Do not think of self-realization as some weird thing that some yogi does in a Himalayan cave. It is not about that. It is just that if you want to live your life with a certain ease, you have to know this piece of life. If you do not explore and know this, how will you live with ease? When there is no ease, joy is out of question. When there is no ease and joy in your life, questions will come up, “To be or not to be?” People think this is a very intelligent question. This is the most idiotic thing you can ask yourself.  

别把自我了悟看作是什么怪事儿,是一些瑜伽仕在喜马拉雅山洞里完成的事。并非如此。它仅仅是,你若想轻松自在地活着,你就得了解自己这个生命。如果你不去探索、了解,如何能轻松自在地生活?如果生活中没有轻松自在可言,喜悦就更别提了。没有轻松和喜悦,你就会想问,“生存还是毁灭?”人们认为这是个非常智慧的问题。但这是你能问自己的最愚蠢的问题了。

 

This life process is such a phenomenon, but you are asking, “To be or not to be?” Such silly questions have risen in the mind because people have not realized the immensity of what it means to be human. Self-realization is not a choice; it is a must.

这个生命过程是如此宏大的现象,但你却问“是生存还是毁灭?”头脑中升起如此愚蠢的问题,是因为人们还没有意识到生命之辽阔,人身之难得。自我了悟不是一个选择,是你必须做的事。

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
