Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 12

Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 12

[Series of Master Shen-Long expounding on the Prajna Paramita (Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom) Heart Sutra]

If from now on you do not opposite yourself against others, your head is clear. Becoming clearer to the level of being without burden, then this person can be called “starting to enter enlightenment”. This so-called “starting to enter enlightenment” is like experiencing a bit of this life in the universe for oneself. This is very important.

This already is no longer the problem of age or whether one is young or old, also it is not necessarily the problem of the maturity of one’s personality – it all depends on whether your mind is influenced by the outside world or not. Honestly speaking, the outside world has no influence on anyone; it is your own discrimination, attachment and delusional thought.

Some people constantly mention: “Fate and fortune tease man”. I also constantly refer to a sentence: “Fate is one’s personality, fortune as the overall condition in life is one’s encounter”. If your personality has changed, your encounters will also change, so think about this. Everyone knows this proverb:

The rivers and mountains may change, but not one’s essential nature.

(You cannot change who you are, can a leopard change its spots?).

This sentence is a killer to many people; I think approximately 80% were ruined by these words. One does not feel one can make the change, it is a pity to be limited by one’s own restriction. Originally, our life condition is not this way; everyone’s appearance is also not like this way. All phenomena manifests from the mind!

Since all phenomena manifests from the mind, why is it that for some persons when we look at them, we all like them very much?

When we look at them we feel very pleasant, like being soaked in the warm and cozy spring wind, and we love to get close to them. Some people when we look at them, we respect them but keep a respectful distance. Even sometimes we look at ourselves, one day we look good, another day we look ugly, the next day we are good looking again. Sometimes when we are in a bad mood, for a couple months we are disgusted with ourselves entirely, constantly mad at the self and make life difficult for the self. I trust most people have had the same feeling; where does it come from?

It is because your mind has misleading views and ways of thinking, then it produces this kind of phenomena.

如果從今以後不對立了,你的腦袋就清楚,越來越清楚,那麼清楚的程度到沒有負擔了,這個人叫做開始覺悟。所謂「開始覺悟」,是好像對這個宇宙人生一點點的體驗,這個很重要。

這個已經不是年紀大小問題,也不一定是人格成熟的問題,這是要看你的「心」受不受外界的影響。老實說,外界對任何人都沒有影響,是你自己的分別執著跟妄想。

有的人常常講:「命運捉弄人」。我也常常講一句話:「命是個性,運是遭遇」。如果你的個性改了,遭遇也改了,想一想。

我們每個人都講「江山易改,本性難移」這句話害死人了。被這句話害死的人,我想是百分之八十。他自認為自己不能改變,可憐劃地自限。本來我們的生命狀態絕對不是這樣的。我們每個人的相貌也不是這樣。「相由心生」。

既然相由心生,為什麼有些人我們看起來都很喜歡?

你看到他很愉快,如沐春風,很愛接近他。有的人我們看到他,敬而遠之。甚至於我們有時侯看自己,一天不錯,一天難看。有的時候心情不好,一兩個月都討厭自己,常常一個人自己生氣,跟自己過不去。有很多人都有同感,這怎麼來的?

是你的心有錯誤的見解跟想法,才產生這種現象。
