上帝与人类的八大关系

8 Relationships Between the Greatest Creator and Humans

人类与宇宙中的所有事物都有直接或间接的关系,与上帝的关系是人类与其他关系中最重要的关系,这个关系直接关系到人类的生死存亡,也关系每个人的未来。上帝与人类的8大关系。

Human beings have direct or indirect relationships with all other matters and things in the Universe, of which the relationship with the Greatest Creator is the most important. These relationships directly determine the extinction or survival of human beings, and the prospect of each individual. This chapter will discuss the 8 relationships between the Greatest Creator and humans.

1、 形体相貌关系

The relationship in physical appearance

上帝没有固定的形态,他可以成为任意形态,人的形态是按照天界神的形态设计的,也就是说,人的外貌与神相似,不与上帝相似。

The Greatest Creator is amorphous and thus can be in any form. The form of human beings is designed based on the form of the Heaven God. That is to say, the appearance of humans resembles that of the God rather the Greatest Creator.

2、 智慧关系

The relationship in wisdom

上帝亲自创造的是天界的神,人不是上帝直接创造的,非洲黑人和美洲印迪安人是地球上的第一批由神创造的人类,埃及人及欧洲白种人是神创造的第二批人类,以中华民族为核心的亚洲黄种人是从极乐界来的,是邪恶之神的追随者龙的变种,是地球上的第三批人类,所以黄种人的祖先不是人类。亚当夏娃是以色列人和绝大部分中东地区人的祖先,是由另一个神在神秘的伊甸园中创造出来的。

The Gods in the Heaven are created by the Greatest Creator. The humans are not produced by the Greatest Creator directly. The African blacks and American Indians are the first batch of humans created by the Gods. The Egyptians and European whites are the second batch of humans created by the Gods. The Asian yellows centered on the Chinese come from the Elysium World. They are the third batch of humans on the Earth and the mutations from the Dragon, which is the follower of the God of Evil. So the ancestors of the yellow race are not humans. Adam and Eve are the ancestors of Israelis and most of the people in the Middle East, created by another God in the Garden of Eden.

从智慧上讲,人的智慧永远达不到上帝的智慧,只有神能理解上帝的智慧,白种人和黑人若能修炼到高深层次时可以理解神的智慧,黄种人本身带有仙佛的基因,若能明心见性,就可拥有仙佛的智慧,以色列人和绝大多数中东地区的人两者兼而有之。

Humans can never reach the wisdom of the Greatest Creator. Only the God can understand the wisdom of the Greatest Creator. The blacks and whites, when refined to a certain senior level, can understand the wisdom of the God. With the genes of Celestial Being and Buddha, the yellow race, if can recognize the mind of nature, can possess the wisdom of the Celestial Being and Buddha. And the Israelis and the most of the people in the Middle East lie in between.

3、 隶属关系

The relationship of affiliation

人类不属于上帝直接管理,上帝直接管理的是天界的神。

The humans are not directly administered by the Greatest Creator. Instead, they are governed by the Gods in the Heaven.

人类是由一神管理的,但总是受到另一个神的阻挠和破坏。由于神界是对立的统一,两种神势均力敌、旗鼓相当,谁也战胜不了谁,所以人类社会永远无法达到完美状态,永远无法平静,人心也永远在善恶美丑真假两股力量的交织冲突矛盾中寻求着平衡点和支撑点。

Humans are administered by one God. However, the relationship is often intervened and damaged by another God. Because the God World also follows the principle of unity of the opposites, these two Gods are equal in power and strength, unable to beat the other side. So the Mortal World can never reach the perfect state or maintain peace. The human heart is always seeking balance between good and evil, and beauty and ugly.

比如,一神创造了亚当夏娃,另一个神就立刻在伊甸园中载了一棵所谓的智慧树引诱亚当夏娃去吃,通过吃那棵树上的果子,改变亚当夏娃的思维基因模式,以便与神对抗,创造亚当夏娃的神知晓另一神的阴谋诡计,所以对亚当夏娃千叮咛、万嘱咐,不要吃那棵树上的果子,结果,最终亚当夏娃无法抗拒诱惑,上了另一神的道,神一怒之下,将亚当夏娃逐出了伊甸园。

For example, one God has created Adam and Eve and the opposing God has planted a so-called Wisdom Tree in the Garden of Eden, alluring Adam and Eve to eat the fruit, which changed the genetic model of the thought of Adam and Eve. The God who created Adam and Eve knew about the evil intention of the other God and repeatedly told Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit on the Wisdom Tree. However, Adam and Eve failed to resist the temptation and were trapped by the other God. The God got angry and expelled Adam and Eve out of Eden.

真正关心人类的神我们称他为光明之神,反之,我们称他为黑暗之神,耶稣就是光明之神的代表,撒旦是黑暗之神的代表,光明之神关心的是人类的前途命运,是每个人生命的完美,想让人们通过对真善美的追求,达到思想上自由幸福,肉体上自由快乐,释迦牟尼清楚人类在光明之神和黑暗之神较量中的处境,干脆教导其弟子们放弃人的生活,直接追求超越,摆脱光明之神和黑暗之神的管理和纠缠,跳出三界,直达极乐界;黑暗之神从表面上看,是非常关心人类的,他让人们追求拥有,追求金钱、追求权势、追求地位、追求美色、追求名声、追求成功、追求得到、追求人上人的生活,他通过一切方式让人忙于眼前的利益,使人没有多少时间进行深邃的思考,最终不让光明之神的计划实现,所以,从实质上看,黑暗之神根本不关心人类,他让人们迷于眼前利益而忘记了人生本来的目的。

We call the God who genuinely cares for the human beings as the God of Light, and the other God as the God of Darkness. Jesus is the representative of the God of Light and Satan is that of the God of the Darkness. The God of Light is concerned about the future and destiny of the human beings. It cares about the life perfection of each individual person, hoping the humans can reach the freedom and happiness in their mind, and the freedom and pleasure in their flesh by pursuing the truth, good and beauty. Fully aware of the position of the human beings in the competition between the God of Light and the God of Darkness, Sakyamuni has taught his followers to forsake the human life and seek surmounting to break away from the God of Light and God of Darkness and get into the Elysium World directly out of the Samsara world. In surface, the God of Darkness cares for the humans very much. He teaches people to pursue possessions, wealth, power, position, beauty, fame, success, ownership and luxury life. In every means, the God of Darkness keeps the people busy with the immediate interest so that they don’t have enough time to have deep thinking. His purpose is to fail the plan of the God of Light. In essence, the God of Darkness doesn’t care for the human beings at all. He is just distracting the people from the real life purpose.

4、 因果关系

The cause-effect relationship

上帝虽然不直接管理人类,但他清楚人类的现状和未来,他对光明之神和黑暗之神之间的恩恩怨怨一清二楚,光明之神要让人间永远光明,黑暗之神要让人间永远黑暗,但永远光明和永远黑暗都将破坏宇宙的对立统一,只能是永远使其一半对一半。

Though not governing the human beings directly, the Greatest Creator knows the present and future of them clearly. He is also fully aware of the rivalry between the God of Light and the God of Darkness. The God of Light hopes to bring everlasting light to the Mortal World while the God of Darkness hopes to sink the Mortal World into the perpetual darkness. However, either the everlasting light or the perpetual darkness will damage the unity of the opposites in the Universe. So they will have to keep the balance.

上帝对人类的关心是通过他设置的因果关系(秩序和程序)进行的。

The Greatest Creator cares for the human beings by setting up the cause-effect relationship (order and procedure).

首先他让人拥有了一定的自由意志,使人可以在光明和黑暗中自由抉择。上帝给予我们的正是我们自己所求的,我们今日的现状完全是我们自己应得的,上帝既没有剥夺什么,也没有给我们增添什么,我们是在上帝设置的“道”上行走的。

First, the Greatest Creator gives the humans beings certain degree of free will, allowing them to select on their own between light and darkness. What the Greatest Creator has given is just what we have pursued. We deserve the current situation. The Greatest Creator has neither deprived nor added anything. We are simply following the “path” made by the Greatest Creator.

比如亚当夏娃,是否吃那棵分别善恶树上的果子,完全可以自我做主,不吃,可以继续在伊甸园中享受无穷无尽的欢乐,吃了,就要逐出伊甸园,靠自己的劳动所得生存。

For instance, Adam and Eve could make their own decisions whether or not to eat the fruit on the Wisdom Tree. If they didn’t eat it, they could continue to enjoy their life in the Eden forever. If they ate it, they would be driven out of the Eden and work hard to survive.

比如,我们路上发现了一只受伤的兔子,如何对待它,完全由我们自己做主。我们可以不理睬它,既不帮助它,也不伤害它,继续我们的路程,这种选择的结果是,等到有一日我们自己受了伤害需要他人的帮助时,就没有人来主动帮助我们,当然也不会有人来继续加害我们;如果我们抱起受伤的兔子,给予适当的包扎和喂养,然后再放归田野,那么,我们就是保护了一个生命,我们所得到的是生命的延伸和升华;如果我们乘小兔子之危,乘机抓了它,回家剥皮下锅,吃了它,那么,我们得到的将是生命的缩短和降值。

I will give another example. We find an injured rabbit on the way and make our own decisions as to how to treat it. We can just let it go, not helping or hurting it, and continue our journey. The result of such selection is that, one day when we are injured and need the help of other people, no one will offer their help or do harm to us. If we take the injured rabbit, give it bandage and food, we have protected a life and get rewarded by the life-span extension and upgrading. If we take the opportunity to seize it and cook it, we will suffer from the shortened life span and degradation.

我们如何对待其它事物,其它事物将会以等价的方式回报我们,我们如何对待神,神就会如何对待我们,我们如何对待上帝,上帝将会以等值的东西对待我们,我们付出多少,就会得到多少,我们得到多少,必将会付出多少,我们付出的和得到的将永远是对等的。

We will be treated the same way we treat the others. The God will treat us in the same way we treat the God. We will receive what we have paid. The more we have paid, the more we will be rewarded. What we have paid and what we will receive will always be equal.

一般来讲,人向往什么,就会来什么。你坚定不移地向往金钱,金钱一定会来到你的身边;你专心致志地谋取权利,你一定会得到权利;你专门寻找妓女,妓女一定会来找你;你一心念鬼,鬼就会出现在你面前;你一心求佛,佛就会来引导你。只要我们专心一致,心无旁骛,持之以恒,我们希望的东西一定会得到。

In general, people will get what they have been aspiring for. If you dream for wealth persistently, you will have the wealth. Such is the case if you long for power, you will have power; if you seek for prostitute, prostitute will find you. And if you think of the devil, the devil will come. If you pursue Buddha, Buddha will guide you. If we persevere and focus on our dream, we will get what we want.

许多人向往了,但没有得到或达到预期的目标,这不是上帝设置的秩序和程序有问题,而是我们三心二意、左右摇摆、信念不坚定或急于求成的缘故。

Many people may have aspired for something but have failed to get it. This is not the problem with the order and procedure set up by the Greatest Creator. It is because we have been hesitant, not perseverant, or have made too much haste.

比如有人想成为作家,但在走作家的路上捱不住寂寞,受不了暂时的贫穷,一会儿想办个公司,一会儿又想当个官,又一会儿想研究“马尾巴的功能”,这就让上帝和神魔左右为难,到底要助你成为作家呢,还是要帮你办个公司呢?其结果是,既成不了作家,也办不了公司。

If a person wants to become a writer but can’t endure the poverty or seclusion on the way to the writer, intervened by the wish to run a company, official position or study of the “function of horse tails”, it will put the Greatest Creator, the God or the Evil into confusion as to what should they do. Whether to help you become a writer or make you a company owner? As a result, you can neither become a writer nor a company owner.

记得小学课本上有一篇“小猫钓鱼”的寓言故事:小猫跟老猫去钓鱼,老猫静静地在湖边专心钓鱼,一会儿就钓了许多鱼,而小猫在钓鱼时东张西望,一见蜻蜓飞来了,就放下钓鱼杆去捉蜻蜓;一会儿又见一只蝴蝶飞来了,又放下钓鱼杆去捉蝴蝶,结果忙乎了一天,不仅没有捉到蜻蜓和蝴蝶,鱼也没有钓上一条。

In the primary school textbooks there is a fable telling the story of a fishing cat. A kitten and an elderly cat went fishing on the lake. The elderly one was concentrating on fishing and got a lot of fish. The kitten just kept looking around for butterflies or dragonflies. When the dark came, it didn’t get fish, nor butterflies or dragonflies.

这不是上帝不公,而是自己也不清楚到底需要什么。

It is not because the Greatest Creator is impartial. It is because we don’t know clearly what we want.

所以,若要当骗子,就不要讲良心;若要当强盗,就不要讲仁慈;要求佛就不要杀生;要超凡脱俗求仙,就不要追求人世间的功名利禄;要敛财,必须认钱不认人;要搞政治,就不能不收买人心;要搞慈善,就不要谋取利益;要做学问,就要忍耐寂寞和孤独;要钻营,就不要顾及原则和交情;要曲意逢迎、溜须拍马,就不要怕他人戳自己的脊梁骨,还得有一副厚脸皮;要想当将军,就不要怕士兵的血流成河;要想不生病,就必须学会养生;要想提升自己的人生品位,就必须修行修炼;要不想坐牢,就远离犯罪;若不想来生变成畜生,就要有人性,不能无法无天、胡作非为;若想肉体死后去千年界,就必须在有限的人生阶段获得完美的人性;若想来生降生在万年界,就必须悟道、求道、得道;若想去极乐界,那就赶紧拜佛求佛,明心见性,脱离欲界、色界、无色界;若不想去阴间,就必须多做好事,少做坏事;若不想去冰冻层,就不要坑蒙拐骗、残害善良;若不想去火炼层,就不要无缘无辜残害生命。

The cheats do not have good will, the bandits do not have mercy, the Buddha doesn’t kill life, the celestial being doesn’t pursue fame or wealth, the money seeker are not sentimental, the politician must curry favor with the public, the philanthropist doesn’t pursue interest, the scholars must tolerate seclusion, the power lover does not consider principle or friendship, the bootlicker is shameless and does not worry about losing face, the military general is not scared by the sacrifice of his soldiers. To remain healthy, one must nourish one’s life. To upgrade the life quality, one must learn to refine or improve himself. To keep away from the prison, one must stay away from the crimes. To avoid becoming the animal in the next cycle of life, one must have the human nature and stop doing evil things. To enter the Thousand Year World after death, one must pursue the perfect human nature in the limited life. To enter the Ten Thousand Year World in the next cycle of life, one must understand, pursue and gain the Tao. To enter the Elysium World, one must respect the Buddha and get out of the Desire World, Lust World and Lust-free World. To keep out of the Hell, one must do more good deeds than bad deeds. To remain out of the frozen world, one should not cheat others or inflict on the good people. To keep out of the Fire World, one should not kill life on a groundless basis.

“种瓜得瓜,种豆得豆。”种了芝麻就不要想得到西瓜,撒了草籽就无法收获庄稼,“善有善报,恶有恶报,不是不报,时候未到,时候一到,必定要报。”此生不报来生必报,上帝公正无私,完全按照我们自己的选择和行为给我们相应的结果。

“As you sow, so will you reap”. Plant sesames and you can’t get watermelons, sow grass seeds and you can’t get crops. What Goes Around Comes Around; Such a life, such a death. The Greatest Creator is just and impartial and reward us in accordance what we have done.

我们的过去就是我们的现在,我们的现在就是我们的未来。这就是我们与上帝之间的因果关系。

The past of us is the present of us. And the present of us is our future. Such is the cause-effect relationship between us and the Greatest Creator.

5、情感关系

The Relationship in Emotions

虽然我们不是由上帝直接创造的,但生命的源头来自上帝,没有上帝,一切皆无。

Though we were not created by the Greatest Creator directly, the source of life came from the Greatest Creator. Nothing would have existed without it.

没有上帝,就没有神魔;没有神魔,就没有人类。这就是说,没有上帝,就没有人类。

If there was no Greatest Creator, there would be no God or Evil. If there was no God or Evil, there would be no human beings. That is to say, there would be no human beings without the Greatest Creator.

从“血缘”上讲,上帝是神魔的父亲,神是人类的父亲,魔是人类的叔伯。这就是说,上帝是人类的爷爷。

As far as “the blood relationship” is concerned, the Greatest Creator is the father of the God and Evil. The God is the father of the human beings and the Evil is the uncle, which means the Greatest Creator is the grandfather of human beings.

耶稣把上帝天父,这完全是正确的,因为耶稣是上帝所造,我们人类若把上帝也称为天父,就是把我们自己也看成了与耶稣平等的神,这就违反了伦理关系,因为耶稣和其他的神按照上帝的要求创造了我们,我们人类的天父不是上帝,而是神。

Jesus called the Greatest Creator as the Father because he was created by the Greatest Creator. However, if human beings also call the Greatest Creator as the Father, we would put us in the equal position as Jesus, which has violated the relational ethics. Because Jesus and other God created us as required by the Greatest Creator, the Father of human beings is the God, instead of the Greatest Creator.

从情感上讲,上帝是我们的爷爷,耶稣等神是我们的父亲,撒旦等魔是我们的叔伯,仙是人类的高级生命层次,佛是人类可以达到的最高生命层次。

From the perspective of relationships, the Greatest Creator is our grandfather while Jesus and other Gods are our fathers, and Satan and other Evils are our uncles. The celestial being is the senior life form of human beings and the Buddha is the highest life form of human beings.

爷爷总是疼爱孙子的,上帝总是关心人类的,只要我们时刻敬奉爷爷,不要惹他老人家生气,我们人类就有美好的前程,即使父亲和叔伯要惩罚我们,只要我们拉住爷爷的手不放,父亲和叔伯由于敬畏爷爷,也不得不放我们一马。

The grandfather always loves the grandson. Also the father always loves his son. If we respect the grandfather and do not anger him, we will have a bright future. Even when father and uncle punish us, if we get the love and favor from our grandfather, the father or uncle would have to let us go because they respect the Greatest Creator.

6、距离关系

The Relationship in Distance

我们与上帝之间的距离有两层含义:从物质的角度讲,我们与上帝之间的距离是无法测量的,是非常非常遥远的。我们人类目前知道的最远的星系距离地球为270亿光年,我们知道的最小粒子夸可的直径向负方向距离地球300多亿光年,再说宇宙的意识能量团并不在宇宙的中心,就象人的大脑不在人体的中间部位一样,从三十六维空间的角度来说,上帝的质在清凉界,而我们人类在人间,有一个无法逾越的鸿沟;从灵体的角度讲,我们与上帝是一体的,是没有任何距离的,宇宙万物都是上帝的缩影。用一个不十分恰当的比喻,人与上帝的距离就象是手指头与人体本身的距离关系一样,手指头与大脑有一定的距离,但手指头是人体的组成部分,手指头与人体并没有什么距离,手指头的任何活动和感受都与人的大脑联系在一起。

The concept of the distance between the Greatest Creator and us can be explained from two aspects From the physical world’s perspective, the distance between us is immeasurable and extremely large. At present, the farthest galaxy we can detect is 27 billion light-years away from us. Quark, the smallest particle we know, is over 30 billion light-years from the Earth in the negative direction. And the Consciousness energy cluster of the Universe is not in the center of the Universe, just like the human brain is not in the middle of the human body. If we see this issue from the perspective of the 36-dimensional space, the matter of the Greatest Creator is in the Zero World while the human beings are in the Mortal World. Between these two Worlds, there is an insurmountable gap. So as far as the spiritual body is concerned, the Greatest Creator stays together with the human beings and there is no distance between us. All things in the Universe are the reflections of the Greatest Creator. The distance between the Greatest and the human beings, if shown in an improper metaphor, is just like that between the finger and the body. There is some distance between the finger and the head, but as a part of the body, we can also say there is no difference between them. Any movement and feeling of the finger is related to the brain.

7、感应关系

The Relationship in Telepathy

上帝虽然在非常遥远的地方,就象大脑离手指头很远,但大脑对手指头的任何感受会在瞬间做出反应,大脑的任何指令手指头会马上感应到,所以,从本质上讲,上帝与我们在一起,我们的任何活动,不论是体力活动还是脑力活动还是心理活动,都会一丝不漏地瞬间反映到上帝那里,上帝的任何指令也会毫无遗漏地立刻反应到我们的肉体和灵体上。

Though the Greatest Creator seems far from us, it will react instantly when we do something and give us orders, just like the finger and the brain. As a result, the Greatest Creator actually stays with us and knows all of movements and behaviors, either physical, mental or psychological. And all the directives from the Greatest Creator can reach our body and soul instantly without the slightest errors.

上帝没有具体的形态,这就是为什么我们人类无法看到真实的上帝存在的原因,但这并不是说,上帝是不存在的,或上帝存在,但与我们人类没有什么太大的关系,我们每一个人,实际上就生活在上帝的关怀和照料之中,我们与上帝相互感应,互为因果。

The Greatest Creator is amorphous and that’s why the human beings cannot see the existence of the Greatest Creator. But it does not mean the Greatest Creator does not exist or his existence has nothing to do with the human beings. As a matter of fact, each of us is living under the care of the Greatest Creator. There is a mutual-response and cause-effect relationship between the Greatest Creator and us.

如果把上帝比做大海,我们人类就是大海中游动的鱼。《圣经》中讲的圣父、圣子、圣灵是指上帝、上帝旨意的贯彻执行者耶稣和其他神及上帝的灵。上帝的灵是充满宇宙的,我们生活在上帝的灵中,就象鱼生活在水中。老子在《道德经》中认识到的“道”,实际上就是“圣灵”,就是上帝的灵,所谓“悟道”、“得道”、“行道”,就是要通过思索、感悟、逻辑推理,充分地认识到上帝灵的存在、运行、作用,进而与上帝的灵融合在一起,一旦与上帝的灵(道)融为一体,就象佛经中讲的:“即得至高无上、大彻大悟大智慧。”到了此时,成仙已经是必然的了,离佛也只有一步之遥。

If we compare the Greatest Creator as the sea, the human beings are the fish swimming in the sea. The Holy Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son of the God in the Bible refer to the Greatest Creator, the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator and Jesus, who executes the directives of the Greatest Creator. The psychic energy of the Greatest Creator permeates the Universe and we just live in the spirit like the fish living in the water. Lao Tzu, in his Tao Te Ching, talked about Tao, which is actually the Holy Spirit. The “Tao awareness”, “reaching the Tao” and “practicing the Tao” actually mean awareness of the existence, operation and function of the Greatest Creator and combination with the spirit of the Greatest Creator through thinking, understanding and logical reasoning. When you have been integrated with the spirit (Tao) of the Greatest Creator, you have “reached the supreme wisdom” stated in the Buddhist Scripture. At this time, you will definitely become a celestial being and not far from the Buddha.

你或许会说:“你讲的似乎有点道理,但我还是感应不到上帝灵的存在和它对我的作用。”

You might say, “What you have said sounds reasonable. But I still can’t sense the existence of the Greatest Creator’s psychic energy and its influence on me.”

这就牵扯到智慧的层次问题了,爱因斯坦的理论“能量等于质量乘以光速的平方”和“光线遇到质量大的物体时会弯曲”及“质量和能量将会造成时空的弯曲”等对我们普通的人来说,就是很难理解的理论,原因是我们的智慧层次还没有达到理解他的理论的高度,但是,在“量子力学”和“测不准原理”理论面前,爱因斯坦就开始迷惑了,他认为:上帝主宰万物,因而也创造了物理定律,所以,宇宙是有序的,即一切事物,只要知道它的现状,便能了解它未来的发展和变化,而“量子力学”和“测不准原理”表明,未来是无法确切预知的,结果可能会多种多样。比如,小粒子的位置测的越精确,它的速度测量就愈不准确,若小粒子的速度测的越精确,它的位置测量就愈不准确。

This has something to do with the levels of wisdom. The Einstein’s theories of “E=MC2”, “Gravity bends light passing a massive object” and “Spacetime curvature changes with enengy and mass” may puzzle the ordinary people because the levels of their wisdom haven’t reached the height to understand his theories. However, Einstein himself was puzzled by the “quantum mechanics” and “uncertainty principle”. He thought that because the Greatest Creator looks after everything, it has created the physics laws. As a result, the Universe is in order, which means knowing the current situation of the Universe would lead to understanding of its development and changes. However, according to the “quantum mechanics” and “uncertainty principle”, the future is unpredictable and there might be multiple results. For instance, the more accurate we measure the position of the small particle, the more inaccurate we will measure its speed, and vice versa.

当一种理论越深奥、越抽象、越接近真理边缘时就越难理解,对普通大众而言,就成了一种玄学,但是,只要我们虚心、思考,就没有攀登不了的顶峰。

The more profound and abstract a certain theory is, the more difficult it is to understand. For the ordinary people, the theory has become metaphysics. But if we have a open mind and think deep enough, there is nothing we cannot reach.

辉煌的人生路有三重天,第一重天是当总统或成为亿万富翁。如何达到这个目标,读一读“百万富翁的创造者”拿破仑.希尔的《成功规律》就可知晓。

There are three levels of life achievements. The first level is the Presidents or billionaires. To have some knowledge about this level, you have to read The Law of Success written by Napoleon Hill known as the creator of millionaires.

第二重天是超凡脱俗、“笑傲江湖”。在你尚未开始向总统和亿万富翁迈步之前,先想象一下自己已经当了总统和成了亿万富翁,然后尽情地在意念中感受那种辉煌,结果你发现当总统或成了亿万富翁并不能给你带来真正的幸福和快乐,反而觉得那是一种累赘、是一种负担,人生应该有更高的境界,世俗社会的一切已经无法满足你的追求,但你又无法摆脱世俗社会的影响和牵绊,这时候你的思维就必然要向如何获得最大的自由和生命的永恒区域发展,你的智慧就上了一个层次,你就可以理解到凡事执着的坏处,在俗事中成功或获得的害处,你就可以达到“随缘而化、随遇而安、随机而做、随性而动”的境界,就可以达到“无为而无不为”的智慧境界,这时候,就可以“笑傲江湖”了。

The second level is the breakout of the worldly pursuit. Before becoming the Presidents or billionaires, you can imagine the splendor and brilliance it can bring you. But when you find becoming the Presidents or billionaires is not able to bring you the genuine happiness and pleasure, you will feel it a burden and redundancy. You believe there is upgraded life. The worldly things can’t satisfy you. However, you can’t get out of the influence from the worldly society. At this time, your thought will definitely develop into the eternal region to gain the maximum freedom and life. Your wisdom has been upgraded into a new level and you can understand the negative side of too much perseverance and too great success in the world. Thus you can reach the level of “freedom, both physically and psychologically, out of the worldly desires”.

第三重天是知晓了宇宙的奥妙,人生的真谛,这时候的感觉是:“天高任鸟飞,海阔凭鱼跃。”你就达到了释迦牟尼佛讲的“应无所住而生其心”的境界,你就知道了生命本身无所谓生,也无所谓死,就可以进入“极乐界”了,这时候你再返回头看世间的总统和亿万富翁的行为,就好象大人们观看小孩子“过家家”一模一样。

The third level is the understanding of the Universe mysteries and life meaning. At this time, you can feel “the sky is high and the sea is deep for the free movement of birds and fish”. You have reached the state of “forsaking the worldly desires and pursuing what your heart guides you”. You have known that the life itself has no birth or death. Then you have entered the Elysium World. You look back at the Presidents and billionaires, you feel that they are simply much too na?ve as the children’s games..

我们反过头来继续探讨为什么我们感应不到上帝存在和上帝的灵对我们的影响问题。

Now let’s continue to discuss why we can’t sense the existence of the Greatest Creator and the influence of the Greatest Creator’s psychic energy.

我说这只是个智慧层次的问题,若我们的认识始终在第一重天内盘旋,就象是井底的青蛙,就无法知道和理解井外大千世界的绚烂多姿,即使其他青蛙如实地告诉我们井外世界的斑驳陆离,我们也无法相信,甚至会认为别的青蛙是在危言耸听,故弄玄虚;若我们的认识局限在第二重天之内,就象是池塘的青蛙,我们无法想象江河湖海的千重波浪和浩瀚奇妙。

Just now I said it related to the levels of the wisdom. If our perception only stays in the first level, we are just like a frog in the well and can’t sense the brilliant outside world. Even if other frogs come to tell us how rich the outside world is, we still can’t believe them and will think they are simply exaggerating. If our perception is limited within the second level, we are just like a frog in the pond and can’t imagine the splendor of the rivers, lakes and seas.

上帝就在我们身上,上帝始终与我们在一起,我们与上帝相互感应,至于你能否感应到完全取决于你心灵感应的程度,一台质量很差的电视机,很难接受到电视台发射的音频和图象信号,即使接受到了,不是图象不清晰,就是噪音很大,听不清播音员在讲些什么,一台黑白电视机无法接受到彩色图象,即使质量非常好的电视机,若接受的频率不对,也无法接受到需要的信号。

The Greatest Creator is being with us in our body. We sense each other. Whether or not you can sense the existence of the Greatest Creator depends on the sensibility of your soul. A poor-quality TV set can hardly receive the audio and video signals from the TV station. Even if it can, the image is not clear or it is too noisy to hear clearly what the broadcaster is talking about. A black-and-white TV set can’t receive the colorful image. Even if the quality of the TV set is good, it can’t receive the signal if it is tuned to the wrong frequency.

“身无彩凤双飞翼,心有灵犀一点通,”感应原理在同频,同频共振不点通。

“Only if we have the same mind can we sense each other.” If we have the same frequency and resonance, we can sense each other.

8、对应关系(联系方式)

The Corresponding Relationship (Way of Contact)

万物都是上帝,但上帝不是万物;手指头是人,但人不是手指头;大使馆都代表国家,但国家不是大使馆;科学家都属于科学,但科学不是科学家;宗教都为神而存在,但神不是为了宗教而存在。明白了这些道理,就明白了人类与上帝的对应关系。

All things are the Greatest Creator, who is not all the things. The finger is human, who is not a finger. The embassies represent their countries, which are not embassies. The scientists are the science, which is not the scientist. The religions exist for the God, who doesn’t exist for the religions. If we can understand this, we would understand the corresponding relationship between the Greatest Creator and human beings.

上帝与万物相互感应,感应的关键在于同频,知道了这一点,就找到了与上帝对应的途径。(联系的方式)。我们要想听某个广播电台的节目,就必须打开该电台相应的频道,我们要想和某人通话,就必须拨打其人的相应的电话号码,我们要想与上帝联系对话,就必须使我们的心灵与上帝的圣灵接通。

The Greatest Creator and all things in the Universe sense each other. The same frequency is key to the mutual frequency. If we know this, we have found the way to correspond with the Greatest Creator (the way of communication). If we want to listen to a certain program, we have to turn on the radio and tune to the corresponding channel. If we want to talk with someone, we have to dial his or her number. If we want to communicate, or talk with the Greatest Creator, we have to connect our souls to the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator.

上帝本身是没有名称的,但人们为了方便,就给上帝起了许多名字,基督教称上帝为耶和华,伊斯兰教称上帝为安拉,佛教称上帝为佛祖如来,道教称上帝为原始天宗,也有人称上帝为造物主,还有人称上帝为皇天、苍天,帝释天、梵天等等,还有通俗的叫法是老天爷,等等。实际上这些称呼都没有错,只要在我们的内心深处呼唤的是宇宙中唯一、无定形、中性、无明、超能、智慧、公正、仁慈的上帝,不论使用什么尊敬的名称都是可以接受的。

The Greatest Creator actually does not have a name. Human beings have given some names to the Greatest Creator for him to be easily identified. The Christians call him Jehovah. The Muslims call him Allah. The Buddhists call him the Ancestor of Buddha. The Taoists call him the Original Heaven Ancestor. Some people also call him the Creator, Imperial Heaven, Heaven, Emperor Heaven, Indian Heaven, etc. Some even call him the Elderly Heaven Lord. In fact, these names are all right. Only if we have the sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, supremely powerful, wise, impartial and merciful Greatest Creator in our heart, it is acceptable no matter what name we give him.

《生命禅院》综合了三大宗教的特点,称上帝为:真主——佛祖耶和华上帝。

Life Chanyuan has summarized the features of the 3 major religions and called the Greatest Creator as the Allah, Ancestor of Buddha and Jehovah.

在此要郑重声明的是,有些人把佛教创始人释迦牟尼尊称为佛祖,这是绝对错误的。释迦牟尼只是佛祖派到人间的一个“钦差大臣”,如果我们把中国历史上出现的钦差大臣尊称为皇帝,那是有杀头之罪的。同样,基督教的个别流派认为上帝是“三位一体”的,所以把耶稣尊称为上帝,也是错误的,我们总不能把父亲称为爷爷吧!

Here I would like to state solemnly that some people call Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, as the Ancestor of Buddha, which is completely wrong. Sakyamuni is just a representative sent by the Ancestor of Buddha to the Mortal World. If the people called the ministers of the Chinese Emperors in the past as the Emperor himself, we would be sentenced to death. If some schools of the Christianity, because of the Holy Trinity, call the Jesus as the Greatest Creator, they are completely wrong. The reason is simple. We don’t call our father as the grandfather.

我们明白了与上帝的对应关系,那么与上帝的具体联系方式是什么呢?

We have understood the corresponding relationship between us and the Greatest Creator. Then how do we communicate with the Greatest Creator?

具体的联系方式是:冥想和祈祷。

To be specific, we communicate with the Greatest Creator through meditation and pray.

冥想就是在无为的精神状态中丢弃由“声、香、味、触、法”引起的心理活动,进入深沉的思索和想象,抛开功名利禄和生离死别,去思索和想象宇宙的奥妙和生命的真谛,久而久之,我们的意识就会与上帝的意识融为一体,我们的智慧将会有质的飞跃,当我们的心神达到一种无法描述的快乐和愉悦的时候,我们已经与上帝紧密地联系在了一起。这是与上帝联系的最直接、最有效、难度最高的方法。我在“养生篇”中讲的“脱凡骨禅定法”就是一种冥想方法。

Meditation means getting into the deep thinking and imagination by forsaking the psychological activities aroused by “the sound, fragrance, taste, touch and law” in the mind. It is a state of mind inaction giving up fame, wealth, life and death, thinking about the Universe mysteries and life meaning. After a long period of meditation, our consciousness will integrate with that of the Greatest Creator and our wisdom will be upgraded in quality. When our state of mind reaches the indescribable happiness and pleasure, we have been closely connected with the Greatest Creator. This is the most direct, effective and difficult way of communicating with the Greatest Creator. The “Zen Method Getting Out of the Earthly Mind” in the chapter of “Nourishing Of Life” is a way of meditation.

第二种方式是祈祷。我们首先必须明确,人类存在的目的是为上帝服务。如何取悦于上帝是我们祈祷的主要目的。

The second way is pray. We must first understand that human beings exist to serve the Greatest Creator. The main purpose of our pray is to please the Greatest Creator.

在如何祈祷,祈祷的方式和祈祷的内容方面,基督耶稣已经非常明确地告诉了我们。我们遵照基督耶稣的教导进行就可以了。大体说来,祈祷要出于虔诚,绝不可敷衍塞责,勉强从事。祈祷的内容首先必须是衷心感谢上帝对自己的恩德和仁慈及关心,进而要歌颂和赞美上帝的智慧和超能及伟大,其次要向上帝表明自己愿按照上帝的意志行事做人,不计较个人的成败得失,接着要为自己所犯的罪孽和错误进行刮骨疗毒般地忏悔,以求上帝能网开一面,宽恕我们的罪过,最后,祈求上帝帮助我们走上正道,使我们的生命在来世能进入高层生命空间,结束语应该表明我们的祈祷是以人类在天国的父亲——耶稣的名义而进行的。

Jesus has told us very clearly about how to pray and what to pray. We just follow his instructions. In general, the pray must be done in piety and should never be performed in a perfunctory manner. The content of the pray must be the gratitude to the Greatest Creator for its favor, mercy and support, praise of the Greatest Creator’s wisdom, supreme power and greatness, followed by your expression of the will to behave in the Greatest Creator’s will without caring about your own success, failure, gain or loss. Then you have to confess, earnestly, your sins and mistake, and ask for the forgiveness of the Greatest Creator. Finally, you should ask the Greatest Creator to steer you onto the right path so that your life can enter the higher life space in the next cycle of life. The pray is concluded by saying that our pray is done in the capacity of Jesus, the father of human being in the Heaven.

祈祷是个人行为,而不是社会行为,那种大喊大叫、故意让别人听见的祈祷是虚伪的,无用的,我们必须静静地、悄悄地进行,没必要说出声来,因为我们的心理活动会变成一种思维波,就象脑电图和心电图一样,向辽阔的宇宙发出我们的心愿信息,上帝一定会回应我们。此外,由于我们本身也是上帝的一个组成分子,我们的祈祷我们自己听到了,也就标志着上帝听到了。

The pray is an individual, not a social activity. The loud pray intended to be heard by others is hypocritical and useless. The pray must be done quietly without being voiced. Because our psychological activities will become a kind of thought wave and emit our wish and mind to the Universe, just like EEG and ECG. The Greatest Creator will receive the wave and respond to us. Besides, because human beings are also part of the Greatest Creator, we hear our pray represents that the Greatest Creator hears too.

祈祷千万要注意不要有邪恶的念头,祈祷某人倒霉,祈祷升官发财,祈祷光宗耀祖,埋怨上帝不公等都会被魔鬼接受,最后倒霉的将是自己。因为邪恶的念头与上帝不同频,只与魔鬼同频。为什么要与上帝取得联系呢?我将会在“生命篇”中解答。

When praying, never have the evil thought and pray for someone’s bad luck, for promotions or wealth, for the family splendor, or complain about the Greatest Creator’s impartiality because all these will be heard by the Devil and you will really have trouble. The evil thought is not in the same frequency with the Greatest Creator. Instead, it has the same frequency with the Devil. Why do we have to communicate with the Greatest Creator?. I will answer this question in the chapter of “Life”.

8.上帝是智慧的

8. The Greatest Creator is Intelligent​

上帝高超的智慧主要表现在以下三个方面。

The great wisdom of the Greatest Creator is shown in the following three aspects:

建立宇宙秩序

Building the Cosmic Order

宇宙秩序主要体现在:1. 宏观天体运行秩序。如法旋系、旋河系、银河系、恒星系等的有序运行。2. 微观物质结构秩序。如分子、原子、电子、质子、核子、介子、超子、变子等的有序运行。3. 生命的轮回秩序。如人的灵性上升到一定的度就可以成仙、成佛;下降到一定的度就可以成狗、成猪、成树等;做人阶段若灵性既不上升,也不下降,就可以继续转世为人。同理,一头牛,根据灵性的升降,可以成人或成其他动物;一个仙,上则可成佛,下则可成人。

The cosmic order includes:

The macro-celestial moving order, such as the orderly movement of the Law-Rotary Galaxy, the Rotary-River Galaxy, and all the Star Systems within each.
The micro-material structure order, such as the orderly movements of molecules, atoms, electrons, protons, nucleons, mesons, hyperons, and gluons.
The order of LIFE transmigration, for instance when a person’s spiritual nature is upgraded to a certain level, they will become a Celestial Being or a God, but when their spiritual nature is downgraded to a certain level, they will become a dog, a pig, or a tree. If the person’s spiritual nature remains unchanged, they can become another person in their next life cycle. Such is the case with an ox, which can become a person or another animal when its spiritual nature is upgraded or downgraded. A Celestial Being can be upgraded to Buddhahood or downgraded to personhood.

设计生命结构

Design the Life Structure

生命的结构主要指各种生命的遗传基因。基因就象是没有暴光的照片底版,是可以不断重复拷贝的。各种生命的基因(底版)相互不同,人的基因与猪的基因不同,猫的基因与鸟的基因相异,柳树的基因与桃树的基因有别,玫瑰的基因与牡丹的基因互差。

一般来讲,基因的特性是:同性相容,异性相斥。

The LIFE Structure mainly refers to the genes of all LIFE forms. These genes, as with unexposed film, can be copied repeatedly. The genes of all LIFE forms (the films) are different from each other. The genes of human are different from those of pigs, those of cats are different from those of birds, those of willows are different from those of peach trees, and those of roses are different from those of peony. In general, genes are featured by the homogenous compatibility and hetero-nature repulsion.

比如,黄种人与黑种人与白种人的基因属于同性,同性相容,所以相互可以通婚生育。但人与动物与植物的基因属于异性,异性相斥,所以,人与动物与植物相互不能交配,即使交配,也生育不出什么生命来。牛、羊、狗、猫、猪、鸡、虎、豹、鹿、鼠、蛇、獭等等,等等虽说都是动物,但它们的基因不同性,所以相互无法交配繁殖。

For instance, the Asian, African, and European lineages of our species have the same nature and are compatible with each other, so their members can interbreed and produce viable offspring, however, since human, animal, and plant genes are not of the same kind but are incompatible with each other, they can not mate, and even if they were to attempt to do so, new LIFE would never be generated. Though oxen, sheep, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, deer, rats, snakes, and otters are all animals, they cannot mate and reproduce because their genes are not of the same type and have different characteristics.

但有少数生命的基因结构相近,人与猿、马与驴、狼与狗、鸡与孔雀、苹果树与梨树等相互可以交配嫁接,但生出的生命不是原来“父母”的形态,且后代无生育能力。如人与猿交配能生出“野人”,“野人”再无生育能力;马与驴交配能生出“骡子”,“骡子”再无生育能力;狼与狗交配能生出“桀”,或叫“狈”,但“桀”再无生育能力;鸡与孔雀交配能生出“凤凰”,但“凤凰”无生育能力;苹果树与梨树可以相互嫁接,能长出“苹果梨”来,但“苹果梨”的种子再无法繁殖等等。

However, the genes of a few life forms are similar. For instance, humans and apes, horses and donkeys, wolves and dogs, chickens and peacocks, apple trees and pear trees can mate or get engrafted. But the new life forms produced are not the same as their parents and they can’t produce their own future generations. For instance, the humans and apes can produce barbarians, who are infertile. The horses and donkeys produce mules, which are infertile, too. The wolves and dogs can have the infertile Bei. The chicken and peacocks can produce the infertile phoenix. And the apples trees engrafted to the pear trees can produce the infertile apple pears.

人与猴子虽然在形态上有相似形,但基因结构不同,所以人与猴子不能交配,即使交配,也生育不出任何东西来,这也就是为什么人不是猴子进化来的原因,当然我们也不能说猴子是由人退化来的。

Though resembling each other, the humans and monkeys have different genetic structures and can Mate. Even if they mate with each other, they cannot produce any new life. That’s why humans are not evolved from the monkeys. Of course, we can’t say the monkeys are involuted from the humans, either.

一个在显微镜下才能看到的受精卵,最后能发育成长为一个头是头、脚是脚、眼睛是眼睛、鼻子是鼻子、头发是头发、眉毛是眉毛、皮肤是皮肤、指甲是指甲、心脏是心脏、血管是血管的有形生命体,这是上帝高超智慧的结晶。人的头发可以无限度地生长,但眉毛和眼睫毛长到一定长度后再不生长,为什么?因为头发长的再长,不会影响生命体的活动,而眉毛和眼睫毛长的过长,就会影响视线,不利于生命体的活动。从胎儿到成年,生命体的发育成长是严格按比例进行的,这也是上帝的设计安排,否则的话,左腿长到一米长了,右腿尚未发育,头已经成型了,耳朵还不见踪影,那不成怪物了吗?或者心脏已经开始工作了,而血管的发育还没有开始,心脏不就闷死了吗!

The fertilized egg only visible via the microscope will end up growing into a tangible life with head, feet, eyes, nose, hair, eyebrows, skin, nails, heart and blood vessels. It is the fruit of the Greatest Creator’s great wisdom. The human hair can grow limitlessly. But the eyebrows and eyelashes, when growing to a certain length, will not continue the growth any more. Why? Because the growth of hair will not impact on the activity of the life while the growth of eyebrows and eyelashes will block the vision. From the embryo to a grown-up, the life grows in strict proportions, which is also designed by the Greatest Creator. Otherwise, the left leg is already 1 meter long while the right one is very short; or the head has taken shape but the ear hasn’t grown. It will produce a monster. Or the heart has begun to work while the blood vessels haven’t started their growth. Thus the heart will die from lack of oxygen.

实际上,机械工程师、建筑工程师等也是基因的设计者,他们设计出的机械图纸、楼房、桥梁等的施工设计图就是一种结构的基因,依据这些基因结构,工人们就可以创造出真实的机器、楼房、桥梁来。工人们的任何行为都是在基因结构(图纸)的范围内进行的,若设计楼房的层数是五层,工人们不可能建造出一个六层的楼房来,甚至窗户的尺寸大小、位置、使用什么样的材料、电线如何走、水管在哪儿装等等都已在施工图纸这个基因结构中有明确的规定。

As a matter of fact, the mechanics engineers and the architectural engineers are also the designers of the genes. The drawings of machines, buildings and bridges designed by them are genes of structures. Based on these genetic structures, they will manufacture real machines and build buildings or bridges. The work of the workers is based on and within the framework of these genetic structures (drawings). If a building is designed to for 5 floors, the workers will not build a 6-floor building. The genetic structure has even defined the window size, position and materials, the wiring and piping.

进化论者认为人是从猴子、猴子是从虫子、虫子是从单细胞生物进化来的,鸟是从陆地动物,陆地动物是从水中动物进化来的,这就好比是说,飞机是从楼房,楼房是从瑞士机械手表进化来的一样。

The evolutionists believe that humans are evolved from the monkeys, monkeys from the insects, insects from the simple cells, the birds from the terrestrial animals and terrestrial animals from the aquatic life. It is the same as the aeroplanes are evolved from the buildings and buildings from the Swiss mechanical watches.

知晓过去未来

Knowing the Present and the Future

伟大导师毛主席在他的一生中曾经预言过二十多个事物发展的未来,而事物发展变化的结局与他的预言基本吻合,为什么?因为毛泽东是有智慧的人。

任何一个能知晓一个或几个事物发展未来的人都是有智慧的,智慧越高,对事物未来发展变化的结果预言的越准确。科学家都是有智慧的人,因为人类的所有创造发明都是在人的智慧的指导下进行的。没有智慧的任何活动,必然是一团乱麻,是紊乱无序、乱七八糟的状态。

The great leader, Chairman Mao Zedong predicted the future development of more than twenty issues during his lifetime which later proved to be accurate. How? Because Mao Zedong had wisdom. Anyone who predicts future developments accurately is wise. The wiser they are, the more qualitative and quantitative will be the predictions that they give. Scientists are people of wisdom because they have created most of our inventions. Without wisdom, any activities would definitely become messy and disorderly.

一个国家,若一切井然有序、发展平衡、人民安居乐业,这个国家的领导层肯定是一个有智慧的智囊团;若群众怨声载道、罪犯猖獗、这个国家的领导层肯定是一个没有智慧的头脑层。

A country running in order and balance where people enjoy their life and work is often governed by a wise brain trust. If the people in this country voice frequent complaints and are annoyed by the criminals, it is definitely governed by a leadership without wisdom.

一个家族,若经历三代,仍培养不出一个有出息的人来,这个家族是没有智慧的家族。

If a family, in three generations’ time, still can’t cultivate some promising one in it, it is a family without wisdom.

一个人,若一生都处在贫困中,任何机会都抓不住,每日的活动没有主次先后、轻重缓急之分,他必然是个没有智慧的人。

If a person lives in poverty and is not able to grasp any opportunity throughout life, or the person doesn’t know what to do first and what to do second, he or she is someone with no wisdom.

有些人,能从国家领导人的更迭中看出机会,从国家的每一个出台的新政策中看出未来发展变化的趋势和方向,从而调整自己的活动目标,这样的人是有智慧的人。

Some people can detect the opportunity from the shift of national leadership, or find the future development from a newly-launched national policy and change his target, these people have the wisdom.

有些人,能从一个现象中看出事物的本质,从量变的速度知道质变的时间,这样的人是有高智慧的人,诸葛亮就是这样的人,他的《出师表》、借东风等就是明证。

Some people can find the essence from the phenomenon, or know the time of qualitative change from the speed of quantitative change, these people have the wisdom. ZHUGE Liang is such a person, proved by his Memorial on Sending Out the Troops, and his weather forecast ability before a battle.

宇宙中的一切都是按照规律运行的,不论是天体的运行、生命的成长,还是沧桑的变迁、人世的变化,都逃不出规律的制约。

Everything in the Universe runs according to the laws, whether the celestial movement, life growth, ebb and flow, or human life change, etc. None is able to run away from the restrictions of the rules.

知道事物运动变化规律的人知晓未来。

Those who know the laws of things and their movement know about the future.

人类已经能预知几百年后日食、月食的时间,知道几万万年后某日的天干地支和五行定数,知道几星期后气象的变化和气温的高低,知道一个人生下来后,过18年才能成长为一个青年。高明的医生,能依据病人的症状大约地知道其死亡的日期,有些有特殊才能的人能计算出一个人的寿数,就象告诉毛主席“99”和“8341”之数的“道士”。

Human beings are able to forecast the time of solar and lunar eclipse hundreds of years later, the calendar and the cosmology destiny of billions of years later, and the weather and temperature in a few weeks’ time. They also know that it takes 18 years for a baby to become a grown-up. The skilled and experienced doctor can know the estimated death date of his patient by judging through the symptoms. Some people with special capacity can calculate a person’s life span. For instance, A Taoist priest once told Chairman MAO 2 numbers, 99 and 8341 (these 2 numbers coincidently match many big events in his life)

宇宙中的一切都是因果关系、都是必然、都是规律,万事万物都有定数,都有开始和结束,所以,越有智慧,越知道宇宙的奥妙。

Everything in the Universe is logical and governed by natural law, and has its destiny from start to finish. So the wiser one is, the more one knows about the mysteries of the Universe.

Everything in the Universe is in a cause-effect relationship.

知晓宇宙一切事物过去未来的是上帝,知晓绝大多数事物运行变化的是神魔,知晓人的过去未来的是佛,人由于基因结构的限制,永远也达不到知晓一切的水平,就象圆周率的数字一样,人永远不知圆周率小数点后数字的终结在哪里,到底是无限的,还是有限的,是循环的,还是不循环的。

The Greatest Creator knows the past and future of everything, Gods and Devils know the movements and changes of many things, and the Buddha knows the past and futures of people. Confined by their genetic structures, human can never know everything. For instance, they can never know the last digit of π, or even whether it is cyclical or irrational.

人虽然永远达不到上帝的智慧水平,但可以达到神佛的智慧境界。问题是,当我们达到神佛的智慧境界的时候,就无法做人了,也不想做人了。普通人,是在求生,有了神佛智慧,就不求生了,而开始求死了,生已经毫无意义,而死才与生命攸关,死的好,起码可以去千年界,若死的不好,来生还得受罪。而人的“快乐”和“幸福”就在于无知,就在于懵懵懂懂,一旦有知了,苦恼和麻烦将会接踵而至,作为人的“快乐”和“幸福”已经引不起丝毫的热情,将会认识到人的一生是一场悲剧,就象一个人看到小鹿在欢快地蹦蹦跳跳,但周围都是狼虫虎豹,小鹿由于无知,才会“快乐”“幸福”,若知道自己面临的各种危险,无论如何也快乐不起来。而作为人,无论小鹿的生活多么快乐幸福,也永远不想变成一只小鹿,就象神佛永远不想变成人一样,除非这个人来自高层生命空间,赋有某一个特殊的使命。

Humans can never have the same wisdom as the Greatest Creator does. But they can reach the level of God or Buddha. The problem is that when we have the wisdom of the God or Buddha, we cannot, or don’t want to be a human any more. The ordinary humans want to survive. When they possess the wisdom of Buddha or God, they want to die. For them, survival is meaningless and death is vital for the life. If they have a fortunate death, they can enter the Thousand-year World. If they have a bad death, they have to endure sufferings for the next cycle of life. The “pleasure” and “happiness” rely on the ignorance. Once they are literate, the distress and trouble will follow. The “pleasure” and “happiness” of the humans cannot arouse the interest of the literate people, who see the life as a tragedy. I can give you an example. A young deer is jumping and playing joyfully because it is ignorant. When it knows the surrounding tiger and wolf are killers, it will not be happy any more. As human beings, they never intend to become a young deer simply because of the pleasure and happiness it enjoys. The God and Buddha never intend to become a human, either, unless he is from the senior life space with a special mission.

7.上帝是超能的

7. The Greatest Creator is Supremely Powerful

整个宇宙是一个各种能量的集合体,这个能量集合体中有一个能量团。集合体与能量团的关系恰如鸡蛋蛋清和蛋黄的关系,在这个能量团(蛋黄)中,有一个体积很小的能量胚,这个胚中又有一个更小的胞核,它就是宇宙的神经中枢,是能量的意识体,是宇宙的思维区,也就是上帝。

The Universe is the aggregate of all energy in which there is an energy cluster. The relationship of the aggregate to the energy cluster is the same as that of an egg white to an egg yolk. In this energy cluster (egg yolk), there is a very small energy embryo which also contains an even smaller nucleus. This nucleus is the nerve center of the Universe which is the causal body of the energy and the thought zone of the Universe. This is the Greatest Creator. 

能量本身是没有思维意识的,原子弹爆炸后释放出来的巨大能量能杀死“坏人”,也能杀死“好人”,能摧毁国王的宫殿,也能夷平平民的茅房,就是因为能量是无意识的。

Energy itself has neither thought nor consciousness. The mammoth energy emitted by nuclear bomb explosions can kill both “bad people” and “good people”. It can destroy Kings’ palaces as well as thatched cottages, simply because the energy does not have consciousness.

能量是威力无比的,但比能量更厉害的是思维,也就是说,制造原子弹的科学家们的思维比原子弹更厉害。能量团中的小小的胞核——宇宙的神经中枢——上帝,比宇宙的总能量更厉害,所以说,上帝是超能的,超越能量的。

Energy can be extremely powerful, but the thought behind it can be even more powerful, which means that the thoughts of the scientists who made the nuclear bombs were even more powerful than the bombs themselves. The small nucleus in the energy cluster, the nerve center of the Universe, which is the Greatest Creator, is even more powerful than the overall energy of the Universe. That is why we say that the Greatest Creator is supremely powerful beyond all energy.

6.上帝仁慈

6. The Greatest Creator is Merciful

鉴于二次世界大战中人类受到的磨难,有人断言说:“上帝死了!”这是对上帝的污蔑和亵渎。

Knowing about the suffering that was experienced during World War II, some people have proclaimed that “The Greatest Creator is dead”, but this is slandering and desecrating the Name.

用人类的情感来理解上帝,纯粹是瞎子摸象。仅仅用人间的生死存亡、违逆困穷来判断上帝的特性,简直是一个老鼠在当人类的法院院长。

To understand the Greatest Creator with human emotions is drawing a conclusion with incomplete data. If we judge the features of the Greatest Creator through the perspectives of life and death or from the difficulty and poverty of people, it would be like appointing a rat to be the Grand Judge of the Supreme Court of the world.

我们看到一个终生勤劳的老妈妈在去世前还要受几年瘫痪在床疾病的折磨,就能认为上帝不仁慈吗?

一个善良诚实的人终生受苦受罪,我们就能断定上帝不仁慈吗?

Can we judge that the Greatest Creator is merciless when we see a diligent elderly lady suffering from paralysis on her bed before she dies or when we see kind and honest people suffering from misfortunes throughout their lives?

有些人一出生就享福,品德并不优良,却能不费吹灰之力获得权势和财富,甚至男盗女娼、坑害忠良,最后却能无疾而终,丧事办得很气派。以此我们就能断言上帝偏袒坏人,对好人不仁慈吗?

不能!上帝是仁慈的。

要理解上帝的仁慈,不能仅仅用人类的是非标准来衡量,必须从时空的角度、生命的循环、灵性的高低来认识。

Some people who are “born with silver spoons in their mouths” do not have any virtues, but they obtain power and wealth with ease. They do a lot of immoral things in their lives but die peacefully in their old age and have splendid funerals. Can we judge that the Greatest Creator is biased for those people and against good ones? To understand the mercy of the Greatest Creator, we cannot use the right and wrong criteria of people. We have to make these judgments from the perspective of time-space, LIFE cycle, and the level of spiritual nature.

从《生命禅院》“宇宙时空篇”中我们知道,宇宙中有36维空间,生命是在天界、极乐界、阴极黑洞体、万年界、千年界、人间、阳极黑洞体、家畜界、动物界、植物界、(昆虫界和细菌界构成另两个生命体系。)阴间、冰冻层、火炼层循环的。

From the chapter of “Time-Space in the Universe” in the Life Chanyuan, we have known that there are 36 dimensional spaces in the Universe. The life cycles among the Heaven World, Elysium World, Negative Black Hole Body, the Ten-thousand Year World, the Thousand Year World, Mortal World, Positive Black Hole World, Livestock World, Animal World, Plant World (the Insect World and Bacteria World form the other 2 life systems), the Hell, Frozen Layer and Inflamed Layer.

人处在中界世界——人间,人的灵性比神、佛、仙的低,但比家畜、动物、植物的灵性高。灵性的层次从天界到植物界逐次降低。

The human beings are in the middle world, the Mortal World. And the spiritual nature of mankind is lower than that of the God, Buddha or Celestial Beings, but higher than that of the livestock, animals, or plants. The level of the spiritual nature descends from the Heaven World to the Plant World.

比如,神知道宇宙中的一切,佛知道仙界、人间、动物界、植物界的一切,却不知道天界的情况,仙只知道人间、动物界、植物界的一切,却不知极乐界和天界的状况,人只知道动物界、植物界的情况,但不清楚仙界(千年界和万年界)、佛界(极乐界)、神界(天界)的情况,动物知道植物界,却不清楚其他生命空间,植物是最懵懂的生命,它们对整个宇宙谈不上什么认识,只能顺其自然,逆来顺受。

For instance, the God knows everything in the Universe. And the Buddha knows everything in the Fairyland, Mortal World, Animal World and Plant World, but not in the Heaven World. The Celestial Beings only know everything in the Mortal World, Animal World, and Plant World, but not in the Elysium World or Heaven World. The human beings only know about the Animal World and Plant World, but not in the Fairy Land (Ten-thousand Year World and Thousand Year World), Buddha World (Elysium World), and the God World (Heaven World). The animals only know the Plant World, but not the other life spaces. The plants are the most ignorant life, knowing nothing about the Universe and can only take everything upon them.

从神的角度讲,人是愚昧的;从佛的角度讲,人是邪恶的;从仙的角度讲,人是目光短浅愚蠢的;从人自身的角度讲,人是善恶两性聪明的;从动物的角度讲,人是不可思议、可怕的;从植物的角度讲,人是神奇、伟大的。

From the perspective of the God, the human beings are ignorant. From the perspective of the Buddha, the human beings are evil. From the perspective of the celestial beings, human beings are short-sighted and stupid. But from the perspective of mankind, human beings are intelligent, though some are good and some are bad. From the perspective of the animals, human beings are scaring and inconceivable. From the perspective of the plants, human beings are fantastic and great.

人类的愚昧表现在:不知道从哪儿来,又到哪儿去,一辈子迷迷糊糊,懵懵懂懂,该要的不要,不该要的却没命地追求,活着不知道为什么要活,死了不知道是怎么死的。

The human beings are ignorant because they don’t know where they are from or heading towards. Throughout their life, they are in a muddle, giving up those they should have and pursue things they shouldn’t have. When living, they don’t know why they live. When dying, they don’t know how they die.

人类的邪恶表现在:互相惨杀、相互欺压、不敬神佛、自高自大、捕杀野生动物、污染江河湖海。若上帝不是仁慈的,怎能允许我们在他创造的这个地球家园中胡作非为?

Human beings are evil because they bully and even kill each other, show disrespect to the God or Buddha, hunt the wild animals, and pollute the waters. If the Greatest Creator is not merciful, how can it allow us to abuse the Earth created by it?

人类正在进行的生物基因工程,从人类自身的角度来看,是个伟大的、了不起的创举,是有无限光明前程的事业,但从上帝的秩序来看,这是个极其危险邪恶的做法,有朝一日,人类要为此付出沉重的代价。上帝若不仁慈,就不会向人类发出规劝和警示。

From the perspective of human beings, the genetic engineering is a great, marvelous and promising career. But if we see from the angle of the Greatest Creator, it is dangerous and evil. Some day in the future, the mankind will pay for it. If the Greatest Creator is not merciful, it will not give us the admonishment and warnings.

试想,我们家里养了几条狗,这些狗已学会了如何开我们卧室的门锁,结果会如何呢?

Imagine we have raised several dogs in our homes. If these dogs have learnt to unlock the bedroom doors, what will happen?

人类的愚蠢和目光短浅表现在:只顾眼前利益和个人利益,而不顾长远利益和全体利益。人们宁愿花时间和精力去挣钱或玩乐,而不愿花时间和精力探讨人生的意义,结果得到了几十年的短暂快乐,却失去了千年美好的生活。就象人人都明白的道理:人人都诚实,人间就是天堂。可人人都耍小聪明,都希望别人诚实,自己例外,结果人类没有几个真正诚实的人,都是聪明人,但聪明反被聪明误,不仅把人生搞的一塌糊涂,也失去了美好的前程。

The human beings are short-sighted and stupid because they only care for the short-term and individual interest, instead of the long-term and collective interest. People tend to spend their time making money and seeking fun, reluctant to take time to think about the meaning of life. The result is that they have harvested dozens of years of joy but lost the happy life enduring thousands of years. Everybody understands that if he is all honest, the Mortal World will become the Paradise. But the fact is that everbody just plays tricks while hoping the others are honest. And only a few of the human beings are honest. Most of them are simply tricky. They not only messed up their own life, also lost the bright future.

现在回答前面提出的三个问题。

Now let me answer those three questions raised in the above paragraphs:

勤劳终生的老妈妈去世前还要受几年瘫痪在床疾病的折磨,其意义在哪儿呢?

When the diligent elderly lady had to suffer from the paralysis on bed for years before she passed away, what does it imply?

一个有雄心、有胆识、英明的老板知道,想要提拔和重用某个员工,必须要让他先经历公司各种业务,要让他忍他人所不能忍、吃他人所不能吃的苦头,培养他不计个人得失、只讲奉献的品德,才能委以重任。老板对他要求越严厉,将来的报酬越高。毛泽东让自己的儿子当农民,然后到工厂当工人,再到朝鲜去当兵打仗,为了什么?就是先让他吃苦,了解民情,最后有希望接自己的班,当一个贤明的君王。

An ambitious and wise boss is aware that, before appointing a staff to an important position, it is imperative to give him the opportunity to experience all difficulties and take almost all tasks in the company, and foster his virtues of selflessness and sacrifice. The stricter the boss is, the more rewards the staff will obtain in the future. MAO Zedong arranged his son to work as a peasant, worker and later a soldier in the Korean War. Why? He hoped his son would experience some difficulties and know about the common people first before taking the throne.

聪明的父母知道,要使自己的子女有出息,就不能让他要风给风,要雨得雨,少年之时过分的放纵和娇惯只能导致青年之期的叹息和老来的悔恨。

The wise parents also know that they shouldn’t spoil their kids by giving them what ever they want. Otherwise they will not make excellent career in their future life. Too much indulgence in childhood can only lead to regret in the old age.

人在上帝的眼中,只是少年期,让我们吃点苦,受点罪就是为了让我们能在人间死后去更好的地方——千年界,起码要让我们再返回人间,有机会通过修行修炼,最终能去千年界。

智慧的人把上帝看成是仁慈的天父,原因在此。

In the eyes of the Greatest Creator, people are just in their childhood. Suffering is imposed upon us by the Greatest Creator in the hope that we can find a better place after our death, either in the Thousand-year World, or at least that we can return to the mortal world after death and enter the Thousand-year World after further self-refining and self-improvement. This is why wise people regard the Greatest Creator as the merciful Heavenly Father.

让一个勤劳终生的老妈妈临死之期再受磨难,从人的感情角度,实属上帝不仁不慈,但从上帝的立场来讲,这真是大慈大仁的地方,若让老妈妈功亏一篑,那才叫残忍呢!

Judging from the perspective of people, the Greatest Creator is really merciless to impose suffering on the diligent elderly lady before her death, however, if we stand in the boots of the Greatest Creator, we will find the mercy. It would be totally brutal to end her suffering before her death.

美国总统肯尼迪的父亲,不让他人去救在河中快要淹死的儿子,在普通人看来,是没有人性的表现,但是,老肯尼迪在培养未来的美国总统,有几人有此远见卓识。

The father of the late US President Kennedy would not let others save his son about to be drowned in the river. For ordinary people, he was really merciless. But very few people knew that he was seizing the opportunity to let his son experience the sufferings, hoping he would become someone in the future.

让一个诚实善良的人终生受苦受罪,其意义与上叙无二。让一个善良诚实的人终生受苦受罪,目的就是要培养你的品德,以获得进入千年界的资格。

So the Greatest Creator is doing the same thing when imposing suffering on a good and honest person throughout their whole life because doing so is just to cultivate their virtues so that they will be qualified to enter the Thousand-year World.

美国的移民政策有许多规定,只有达到其规定,你才有资格在美国生存。要在哈佛和剑桥等大学当教授,你必须具备一定的学历和资历,即使你滥竽充数混进去了,站在头脑清楚的学生们面前一张口,满嘴的常识错误和逻辑混乱,三天就能把你哄出学堂。一个优秀的家族是不允许后代们胡乱结婚的,一个纯洁的组织是不轻易接纳成员的。千年界是一片净土,不能随便让一个“臭气熏天”的人进去,就象每个家庭的客厅中不能允许有狗屎鸡粪存在一样。

The US immigration policy has set many regulations. Only by following these regulations can one be qualified to live on this land. To work as a professor in Oxford or Cambridge University, you have to obtain certain level of education and experience. Even if you are lucky and have obtained a position there, you cannot maintain the job because the students will find the common-sense mistakes and confused logics made by you. An excellent family will not allow their future generations to marry imprudently. A pure organization does not accept new members unscrupulously. The Thousand-year World is a piece of pure land, refusing the access of “stinking people”, just like the sitting room will not tolerate the existence of dog droppings or chicken manure.

神耶稣说:“你们贫穷的人有福了,你们饥饿的人有福了,你们哀哭的人有福了。”为什么?神说:“因为上帝的国是你们的。”

佛释迦牟尼说:“以今世人轻贱故,先世罪孽即为消灭,当可修成至高无上、大彻大悟大智慧。”

仙老子说:“祸兮福所依。”“将欲与之,必固取之。”

Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Blessed are those who mourn.” Why? Jesus said, “for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. Shakyamuni said, “The humble lives of living people are just to eliminate sins from past lives. Only in this way can they self-improve and reach the Supreme Wisdom.” The Celestial Being, Lao Tzu said, “Blessings are disguised as misfortunes” and “In order to take, one must first give.”

上帝让一个诚实善良的人终生受苦受罪,用心良苦,我们何冤之有?!

让一个人终生享福,为所欲为,看起来挺不错,实际上是让你透支你的福分,你得到的越多,你损失的越惨。

普通人都知道,抬的越高,摔的越重,爬的越陡,跌的越惨。

The Greatest Creator gives much consideration before imposing suffering and plight on good and honest people throughout their whole lives. To give lifelong fortune and happiness to a person sounds very attractive, but that person would really be over-consuming their blessings. The more you get, the more you will lose. Everyone knows that the higher one climbs, the more serious an injury they will suffer if they fall.

宇宙的一切都是对立的统一,得到的和失去的最终是相等的,失去的越多,得到的越多;得到的越少,失去的越少。印度的一种宗教提倡苦行,并不是愚昧无知,靠石油生意发家的洛克菲勒把几亿美元捐赠给慈善事业,自己只留下一个零头,并不是老糊涂了,功夫明星李连杰把做广告挣的钱捐献给佛教,并不是钱多得实在没办法花了。他们已经悟出“道”了,有智慧了。

Everything in the Universe follows the principle of the unity of opposites and in the end, your gains will equal to your losses. The more you gain, the more you will lose and the less you gain, the less you will lose. An Indian religion advocates asceticism and it is not an ignorant practice. John D. Rockefeller, who earned wealth with oil mines, donated hundreds of million of dollars to charities and only kept a small part of his riches. He was not an old fool. The Kung Fu star, Jet LI donated his sponsorship income to the Temple, not because he had too much money to spend. They both understood what Tao is and they have possessed its wisdom.

谁说上帝不是仁慈的?

假如全人类都认定“上帝不存在”,人类首先“不存在”了。人类之所以存在,原因是人类中尚有许多人虔诚地信仰和崇拜上帝,上帝是看在他们的份上才让我们继续在地球上存在,并希望我们能改邪归正,走上帝的道。仅从这一点讲,上帝是非常仁慈的。

Can we still say that the Greatest Creator is not merciful? If everyone believed “the Greatest Creator does not exist”, then mankind would not exist either. The Greatest Creator is there because a large number of people believe in and admire it. Because of this, the Greatest Creator allows us to live on the Earth and hopes that we can follow, give up evil, and return to good. From this perspective, the Greatest Creator is very merciful.

5.上帝公正

5. The Greatest Creator is Impartial

上帝是唯一的、上帝无定形、上帝是中性的,所以,上帝是公正的。

Since the Greatest Creator is unique, exclusive, amorphous, and neutral, it must also be impartial.

一个法庭,若被好人控制,坏人都得倒霉,若被坏人控制,好人都得遭殃;若被无产阶级控制,资产阶级就要受罪,若被资产阶级控制,无产阶级就要受苦;若被神佛控制,魔鬼就会受制,若被魔鬼控制,神佛就将被压制。只有中性的,不偏不倚的,才是最公正的。

If a court were controlled by a good judge, then every criminal would be punished, but if it were controlled by a bad one, many innocents would suffer. If it were controlled by proletariats, capitalists would have a hard time, and vice versa. If it were controlled by a God or Buddha, evil would be constrained, and so on. The neutral, unaffiliated, and non-party is the least partial.

阳光普照大地,并没有专照某些人,而是一视同仁地照在了众人身上;空气充满地球,“好人”“坏人”都可以自由呼吸;地球上设置了充足的水源,使你我他都可以用最低廉的价格获得对生命至关重要的水,这是多么地公正公平啊!

Sunshine is impartial because it casts itself on all people. The earth’s air is breathed by both good and bad people. Water, which is vital for LIFE, is abundant at a very affordable price to everyone. So the Greatest Creator is fair and impartial.

假如上帝不是公正的,不这样安排阳光、空气、水源,有些人一定会象霸占田地,矿山那样霸占阳光、空气和水源,我们还有活路吗!

If the Greatest Creator were biased and did not allocate the sunshine, air, and water this way, some people would control them just as they occupy the land and mines. How could the rest of us survive?

上帝的另一公正之处是:不论什么人,都得死亡。

假如有权有势的人都不死,都能长命千岁,万寿无疆,穷人还有希望吗!

所以,任何一种想让部分人益寿延年,老而不死的想法和做法都是与上帝的公正背道而驰的,都是注定要失败的。

The Greatest Creator is also impartial because everyone dies. If the privileged could live for thousands of years or even for eternity, the poor would be hopeless. Thus, any thought or practice which hopes to give immortality to a certain fraction of people is in conflict with the impartiality of the Greatest Creator and can never be realized.

人类试图消灭疾病,想把霍乱、伤寒、天花、鼠疫、癌症等等消灭掉,简直是在瞎捣乱,是在好心办坏事,是在给上帝添乱。你消灭一种,上帝不得不再创造一种,爱滋病、非典、特种空气分子病等,看你人类有能耐,还是上帝有能耐!

The human beings have tried to eliminate the diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, smallpox, plague and cancers. It is really a naughty behaviors causing trouble for the Greatest Creator. For each disease eliminated, the Greatest Creator has to generate a new disease to take its place, such as HIV/AIDs, SARS, special air molecules disease, etc. We will have to see who is more powerful, man or the Greatest Creator?

因为不这样,地球就承受不了。试想,若疾病不消灭一些人,若地球上曾经生存过的人都活着,今天的我们还有足够的地方生存吗?!就象一个美丽的公园,进去的人总得不断出去吧,总得让后来的人也进去观赏观赏吧,你进去了就不想出去,若大家都这么想,这个公园能容纳得了吗?后来者都无法进去,那对后来者公平吗?!

The reason is that the Earth cannot sustain so many people if the Greatest Creator does not generate new diseases which kill some people. If all the people on the Earth keep living for ever, do we still have enough space to live? It is the same case with a pretty garden. If all the visitors stay inside and do not leave, how can the other visitors come in and enjoy? Is it fair for the late comers if they are kept out?

有些人总希望“善良”的人得到比“邪恶”的人更多的东西,总希望上帝把“邪恶”的人都打入地狱,若不这样,认为上帝就是不公正的。

Some people are always hoping that the “good people” can get more than the “evil people”, and that the Greatest Creator should send the “evil people” to the hell. If the Greatest Creator fails to do so, it would be unfair.

这种天真的想法纯粹是人的感情用事。很少有人认为自己是邪恶的,不善良的,实际上,只要你是人,你就是邪恶的。你杀死动物,吃它们的肉,难道不是邪恶吗?当你宰杀动物之时,对动物们无助的嘶鸣、无奈的抗议、生离死别的恐惧无动于衷、举着明晃晃的刀子把利刃插入它们的胸膛或割断它们的喉官,对动物们来讲,你绝对不是善良之辈。

Such naive idea is simply the sentimental wish. Few people would think they themselves are evil or bad. But the fact is that all people are evil. Aren’t you evil when you slaughter the animals and eat their meat? When you slaughter them mercilessly regardless of their helpless cry, protest and fear, when you stab the shining knife into their chests or cut off their throats, you are not a kind person at all for the animals.

吃肉与参与宰杀并没有太大区别,吃肉本身就是不善良的表现。佛教徒为什么不吃肉?就是为了减少再造孽的机会,死后能进入更高级的生命空间。

There is no difference between eating meat and slaughtering animals. Meat-eating is the bad behavior itself. Why Buddhists would not eat meat? They are just avoiding re-committing sins to enter the senior life space after death.

凡吃肉的都不是善良的。或许有人认为,猪是我自己养大的,宰杀它、吃它的肉是合情合理的。是吗?自己养的就可以任意宰割吗?子女是父母养大的,父母就可以……这种道理能通吗?!

All those eating meat are not good. Maybe some people think that it is sensible to slaughter the pig and eat its meat because the pig is raised by themselves. But is it really sensible? Does raising the pig justify slaughtering it? The kids are raised by their parents. Can they be …, too? Does it really make sense?

注:我在这里谈吃肉等问题,是从生命平等,是从成佛的角度出发的,我并不反对吃肉,我自己也吃肉,这就是说,我自己也不是善良之辈。

Notes: I talk about the issue of meat eating from the perspective of “all life is equal” and becoming Buddha. I am not opposed to eating the meat. In fact, I am a meat eater, too. So I am not a good person.

不吃肉是一种善良的表现,我们提倡素食主义。

Refusing to eat the meat is what good people will do. We advocate vegetarianism.

但是,人人都拒绝吃肉,人人都成佛了,就违背了生命的循环。人类在地球上生存是有目的的,人类是生命环节上的一个链条,缺少这个链条,许多空间的生命就没有了后来者,最终会趋向终结,地狱不存在了,天堂也就失去了存在的价值,人间没人了,仙界也会消失,那么,人人都象佛教徒那样,不吃肉、不结婚、不生育,人类不就要断子绝孙吗?!这可不是上帝对生命的安排。

But if all the people refuse to eat meat and become the Buddha, it will break the life cycle. The human beings have their duties to live on the Earth. They are part of the life chain. Without this part, the life of many spaces will not have carried on and end in extinction. There will be no Hell, thus no Heaven. There will no mortal world, thus no fairy land. If all the people do not eat meat, get married, have babies, just like Buddhists do, there will not be the future generations. This is not what the Greatest Creator wants.

顺便说几句,信仰佛教绝对是正确的,是有光明前程的,但不结婚生育,是否正确?是否与上帝的目的背道而驰?

By the way, it is absolutely right and promising to believe in Buddhism. But is it also justifiable not to get married and have babies? Is it in line with the intention of the Greatest Creator?

在佛教的历史上,每当佛教鼎盛的时候,必然要来一次毁灭性的打击,为什么?为什么几千年了,佛教只能维持生存,而无法普照全球?主要原因不在于佛理不通,而在于修行的方式有问题。

If we look at the history of Buddhism, we will find that each time when the Buddhism is prosperous, there would be a devastating attack on it. Why? Why such an ancient religion can only maintain its survival without being disseminated across the whole world? The problem does not lie in the Buddhism principles, but in the ways of self-improvement.

在这里,不得不谈谈法轮功。法轮功作为一种修佛的方法,本身是没有错误的,修佛的方法有八万四千种,转法轮就是其中之一,老百姓喜欢法轮功这种修佛方法是很可喜的事,这就说明中国的老百姓是积极向善向上的,李洪志能够激发起大众向佛的热情,其功德是不可磨灭的,他和张宏堡都可以称为灵性大师。

Here we have to talk about the Falun Gong. As a Buddhahood exercise, Falun Gong is not wrong at all. There are 84,000 kinds of Buddhahood exercises, and Falun Gong is one of them. It is a pleasing thing that the people like Falun Gong as a Buddhahood exercise, which demonstrates that the Chinese people actively pursue goodness. LI Hongzhi has his merits because he has triggered the people’s desire for goodness. He, together with ZHANG Hongbao, can be called the masters of spiritual nature.

问题出在,把修炼方法混同为佛法,把法轮功上升为“法轮大法”,就违背了佛法。什么是佛法?释迦牟尼在《金刚经》中说:“所谓佛法者,即非佛法。”又讲:“如来说一切法皆是佛法。”“若人言如来有所说法,即为谤佛,不能解我所说故。”还讲:“不应住法生心。”这就明确地教导我们,要认识佛法,首先要放弃法,不能执着于法,无法之法才是佛法,有法之法不是佛法。法轮功是正确的,但“法轮大法”是错误的,因为执着于法,法就不是真正的佛法了。

The problem is that it has relabeled the Buddhahood exercise as the Buddhism and upgraded Falun Gong into the so-called Falun Great Law, which is a violation of the Buddhism. What is the Buddhism? In The Diamond Sutra, Sakyamuni said, “The so-called Buddhism is no Buddhism”, “Tathagata once said all laws are Buddhism”, “If some people say Tathagata has ever explained the Buddhism, they do not understand my words and are actually slandering the Buddha.” What Sakyamuni said has told us, to understand the Buddhism; we have to forsake the laws. The laws without laws are Buddhism and vice versa. Falun Gong is correct but the Falun Great Law is not. Because it focuses too much on the laws and its laws can not be Buddhism at all.

什么是法?法就是上帝管理宇宙和生命有效运行的秩序或客观规律,物理学中的公式、化学中的分子式、数学中的方程式、生物学中的结构式、生命学中的因果式等等就是法。一切法都是佛法,一切法都是由上帝设计创造的。

So what is the law? The law is the order or objective principle adopted by the Greatest Creator to govern the effective operation of the Universe and life. The formula in physics, molecular formula in chemistry, the equation in math, the structural formula in biology, and the casual schema in life science are all laws. All laws are Buddhism and are designed and made by the Greatest Creator.

李洪志大师2003年2月15日下午在洛杉矶美国西部法会上解法时说:“我用人的话讲明白了吧,法是我造就的。”

When lecturing in LA of US in the afternoon of February 15, 2003, Master LI Hongzhi said, “So do you understand? All laws are made by me.”

“史前所有的一切生命都是法造就的,谁也不例外,谁也都在其中。”“无量无计的大穹,无量无计的天体空间,每一个空间都有无量无计的生命,都是这法造就的,没有任何生命能够评论法。”

“All life in the prehistoric period was made by the laws without exception.” “The immeasurable and countless Universe, space, and celestial bodies contain immeasurable and countless life, which is generated by the laws. No life is positioned to comment on the laws.”

这就有点太离谱了。法本身是上帝创造的,现在李大师说法是他造就的,难道李洪志就是上帝?上帝就是李洪志?

He has gone too far. The laws are created by the Greatest Creator. But Master LI said he has made the laws. So can we conclude that LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator or the Greatest Creator is LI Hongzhi.

宇宙中只有一个上帝,要么是上帝,要么是李洪志,二者必居其一。

There is only one Greatest Creator in the world, either the One or LI Hongzhi.

假设李洪志就是上帝,那么,李大师具备唯一、无定形、中性、无明、公正、仁慈、超能、智慧这八大特征吗?

Let’s presume LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator. Does Master LI have the 8 features of being sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, fair, merciful, superbly powerful and wise.

人类是战胜不了上帝的,若李大师是上帝,“法轮功”能遭此劫难吗?连生养自己的土地上都生存不下去,怎么能把自己看成是上帝呢?

Human beings can never overcome the Greatest Creator. If Master LI was really the Greatest Creator, would Falun Gong have experienced such disastrous difficulty? How could he claim himself as the Greatest Creator even when finding it difficult to survive on his own motherland?

上帝无定形,上帝管理着整个宇宙,不可能以人的身份来到地球在夹缝中求生存,而李大师一开始就出生在人间,几十年来有清楚的历史档案,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is amorphous, governing the whole Universe and unable to survive, with difficulty, on the Earth in the form of human. And Master LI was born in the mortal world, which can be proved by his archives in the past decades. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

上帝从来就没有与人类进行过直接对话,而李大师与人类直接讲了多少话?

The Greatest Creator has never talked with the human beings directly. And think about the many lectures Master LI has given us.

上帝无明,是神秘的,而李大师的一切都明明白白、清清楚楚,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is mysterious. And we know about everything about Master LI. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

上帝通晓一切,李大师通晓一切吗?不要说科学家们提出几个问题回答不了,既是提出几个高中物理、化学、数学、生物等方面的问题,有可能也回答不了,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is omniscient. Is Master LI omniscient, too? He might not be able to answer the questions of physics, chemistry, math or biology for the senior high school students, not mention the questions raised by scientists. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

李洪志是一位灵性大师,对宇宙人生有独到的见解。但若超越一定的范围,必然会物极必反。

LI Hongzhi is a master of spiritual nature, having his own distinctive understanding of the Universe and life. But if he goes too far, he is sure to have problems.

人类中藏龙卧虎、大隐高士多的是,有些人深居简出,看似一介平民,实际拥有经天纬地之才,吞吐宇宙之志;有些人不言不语、貌似愚鲁,实际上智慧超群、目光如炬;有些人看似平庸无奇、愚昧无知,却深谙宇宙法则,生命真谛。他们就象“道”一样,深藏不露,但关键时候会力挽狂澜,扶大厦于即倒。

There are many wise men in the mortal world. Some live secluded, and some look like average. But they possess great capacity. Some people slow, but they have superb wisdom. Some look normal and ignorant but they are fully aware of the life essence. They hide their capacity, just as Tao is, but they are able to make great achievements at the critical time.

总之,上帝是公正的,每个人、每个组织、每个民族的兴亡盛衰都取决于上帝的天平。只有抛弃自我,才能看到上帝的公正,若凡事以我为中心,以自己的爱好和成败得失来认识上帝,无论横看还是竖瞅,不仅看不到上帝的公正,连上帝的边也摸不着。

All in all, the Greatest Creator is impartial.
The success or failure of an individual, organization, or nation all rely on the balance of the Greatest Creator. It is only by forsaking ourselves that we can see the impartiality of the Greatest Creator. If we attempt to understand the Greatest Creator by focusing on our own’s preference,success,failure, gain and loss, then we will never find this impartiality, or even a shadow of it.

4.上帝无明

The Greatest Creator is Mysterious

上帝以灵管理着宇宙万象,这个灵就是老子在《道德经》中讲的道,这个灵我们也可以说是上帝的意识和思维。

The Greatest Creator administers all things in the Universe with psychic energy. Such psychic energy is the Tao stated by Lao Tzu in his Tao Te Ching. We can also understand psychic energy as the Consciousness and thinking of the Greatest Creator.

人靠血液维持肌体的活力,宇宙靠上帝的灵(思维和意识)维持活力,所以,上帝的灵实际上就是宇宙的“血液”,是宇宙的生命力。

Our bodies are fueled by blood, while the Universe is fueled by psychic energy, the consciousness and thinking of the Greatest Creator. Consequently, the intelligence of the Greatest Creator is actually the “blood” and vital force of the Universe.

人的所有运动,包括说话、吃饭、睡觉、学习、工作、谈情做爱等等基于生理本能和人的意识,而宇宙的所有运动,包括天体的运行、星系秩序的维护、自然万象的生生灭灭等等基于物质运动的规律和上帝的意识——灵。

All human movements, including speaking, eating, sleeping, studying, working, and loving are based on physical instinct and human consciousness and all of the Universe’s movements, including the movements of celestial bodies, the continuation of the order of galaxies, and the life and death of all beings within it are based on the laws of physical movements and the psychic energy and consciousness of the Greatest Creator. 

上帝显示给人类的不是他自身,而是他的灵,上帝从来没有与人类直接打过交道,上帝从来也没有直接给某个人什么特殊的启示,上帝的灵贯通于宇宙的所有空间和物质的所有运动之中,我们每个人的身上都有上帝的灵。可以说,上帝与宇宙在一起,上帝与万物在一起,上帝与人在一起。

The Greatest Creator does not reveal itself, instead, it reveals its psychic energy. The Greatest Creator has never favored or communicated with any group of people or given any special revelation directly to anyone. The intelligence of the Greatest Creator is permeated in every space of the Universe and in all the movements of matter. It is to be found in each of us. The Greatest Creator stays with the Universe, all things, and all people.

虽然上帝与我们在一起,但我们却看不到他,为什么?因为上帝有一个特征,就是无明。

什么意思呢?就是说,上帝的灵(意识、思维、规律、道、“血液”、生命力)是一种看不见、摸不着、听不懂、说不清、辩不明的反物质、暗能量,这个反物质、暗能量在不知不觉中、潜移默化中起着作用,它没有明显的形象或标志,虽然似无,却是一种虚无缥缈的客观实在,它无处不在、无时不在、明察秋毫、一丝不苟。

Since the Greatest Creator is with us, why can we not see it? The answer is that the Greatest Creator is mysterious. What does this mean? To be specific, the psychic energy of the Greatest Creator – the consciousness, thinking, laws, Tao, “blood”, and vital force – is non-material and is dark energy that is invisible, intangible, and can neither be explained nor understood.

Such non-material and dark energy perform their functions quietly and without evident appearance or symbols. Though it seems that non-matter and dark energy do not exist, they are actually objective existence, which is ubiquitous and strictly loyal to its nature at all times.

比如人体的衰老死亡,人体为什么要衰老死亡呢?是什么导致了人体的衰老死亡?科学家也好,生物学家也罢;政治家也好,宗教家也罢,都无法全面地解释说明其真正的原因,为什么?因为上帝的特征:无明。

Why do human bodies age and die? What leads to aging and death? No scientists, biologists, politicians, or religionists can answer these questions, simply because the Greatest Creator is mysterious.

我在《生命禅院》“初级养生篇”中讲到,导致人体衰老死亡的原因,按其破坏力的大小,依次为:七情六欲引起的心念活动、饮食、起居、劳作、风霜寒暑、空气质量、噪音、宇宙力(地磁、引力、辐射、各种射线、各种波等)。

In the chapter of Primary Longevity Means in my Lifechanyuan, I state that the causes of human body aging and death, according to their damaging force, are arranged in the following order: the mind activities aroused by the 7 emotions and 6 sensory carnal desires, drinks and food, sleeping, labor, weather, air quality, noise, cosmic force (terrestrial magnetism, gravitation, radiation, and rays and waves of all kinds)

每一次生气、每一次兴奋、每一次情绪变化、每一桩伤心事、每一口烟、每一口酒、每一次不适当的饮食、每一次的熬夜或失眠、每一次过度的劳累、每一阵寒风热浪、暴雨霜降、每一口吸入的被污染的空气、每一次听到的不悦耳的声音、每一次太阳黑子的活动、每一次的火山爆发和地震、每一次的核设施泄漏或炸弹爆炸、每一次铺天盖地的沙尘暴等等,等等共同促使了人体的衰老死亡。

The human body aging and death are facilitated by each anger, excitement, emotional change, depression, cigarette, liquor, improper drink or food, late sleeping or insomnia, overstress , cold or hot wind, rainfall, frost, polluted air inhaled, unpleasant sound, sunspot activity, volcanic eruption, earthquake, leakage of nuclear facilities, bomb explosion, sandstorm, etc.

对此,绝大多数的人肯定同意我的解释,但是,以上这些因素又是通过什么渠道、什么机理来改变人体的生长结构的呢?绝大多数人就不明白了,为什么?因为上帝的特征:无明。

Most of the people agree with my explanation. But most of them do not understand how the above factors change the growth structure of the human bodies. Why? The answer is also that The Greatest Creator is mysterious.

上帝是无明的,上帝只显示结果,不显示过程。

The Greatest Creator is mysterious, only revealing the result without showing the process.

为什么?因为一旦让所有的人都了解了事物运行变化的过程,人人都会成神了,甚至要与上帝比高低了,这就有点象中央政治局开的会一样,让各部部长、省长到普通老百姓知道的按照应该知道的级别只是政治局开会的结果,而不是开会的过程,如果让老百姓都清楚政治局开会的过程,天下早就大乱了。

Why? Because everyone would become a God if he understood how things move and change. If so, he would compete with The Greatest Creator. For instance, the ministers, governors and common people only know the results of the Political Bureau (the highest decision-making body of China) meetings of CPC’s Central Committee in accordance with their limits of authority. But they never know the process of these meetings. Otherwise China would fall in disorder.

那么,上帝是不是太自私、太吝啬呢?

Is The Greatest Creator selfish or mean?

不是,绝对不是!上帝不让我们知道,正是上帝仁慈的表现。假如一个小孩刚生下来,有人马上告诉小孩的父母和其他亲人,这个小孩将会如何如何成长,到15岁时将会由于在河里游泳而被淹死。请大家想想,这会产生什么后果呢?

Absolutely not. The Greatest Creator wouldn’t let us know the process just out of its mercy. For instance, a baby is born and someone tells its parents how the baby will grow up and end up in being drowned in a river at the age of 15. Just image what the consequences will be like.

当然,上帝也不是绝对不让人了解事物运行变化的过程,实际上,他把一切的奥秘都毫无保留地展示给了人类,之所以有些人能明白一点,有些人一点都不明白,关键取决于每个人的灵性和智慧。灵性越纯、智慧越高,看到的就越多、越深,明白的也就越多,若灵性越杂、智慧越低,就越糊涂、越懵懂。

Of course, it does not mean that The Greatest Creator will never let the humans know how things move and change. As a matter of fact, he just reveals all mysteries in front of the mankind. How much the people can understand the process depends on the individual’s spiritual nature and wisdom. The purer their spiritual nature is and the wiser they are, the more and deeper can they understand, and vice versa.

比如苹果落地,这个现象大自然公正无私地展示给了所有的人,但有几个人能明白这个现象说明了什么规律或道理?惟有牛顿从中看出了万有引力;许多人都坐过电梯,但没有几个人深刻地思索过如果给电梯(无缆绳制约)不断地增加所需能量,会发生什么现象呢?电梯不断地加速,随之,它的质量就会增大,要想使电梯的速度最终超过光速,那就需要无限大的能量,而这是不可能的(仅从物质的角度,没有涉及反物质),由此,爱因斯坦得出了能量等于质量乘以光速的平方这个炸毁了日本长崎、广岛的质能方程式;我们都有过在炉火边、或柴火边取暖的经验,或看见过烧得通红的物体,或在厨房中做饭时被烧热的炉盘烘脸的经验,但有几人从中悟出后来被称为量子力学的理论?没有,只有麦克斯.普朗克悟出了;绝大多数的人都曾经在大树下坐过,惟有释迦牟尼坐在大树下用意识探测到了36维空间,并知道了佛国及成佛的途径。

For instance, the falling of apples is shown, fairly and selflessly, to almost all the people by nature. But only Newton reached the law of universal gravitation. Many people have taken lifts. But only a few have ever thought what would happen if constant energy is added to the lift (no-cable constraint). The life would keep accelerating and its quality would increase. Infinite energy is needed before the speed of the lift could exceed that of the light, which is impossible (the antimatter is not considered in this case). As a result, Albert Einstein got the famous equation of E=MC2, which led to the nuclear bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki of Japan. Moreover, most of us have the experience of keeping ourselves warm close to the stove or campfire, have seen the burning things or have felt hot in the face when cooking at the gas cooker in the kitchen, but have any of us reached the theory of Quantum Mechanics? Only Max Planck did. Many of us have sat under a tree and only Sakyamuni found the 36-dimensional space and the ways to Buddha and Buddha Land.

上帝对人类中的所有成员都一视同仁,不论你是白人,还是黑人,还是黄人;不论你是国王,专家,还是普通老百姓;不论你是富翁,还是中产阶级成员,还是穷人;不论你是伊斯兰教徒,还是佛教徒,还是基督教徒,上帝给予了同样的机遇和权利,“开窗日月进,放眼远山青,”不论是谁,只要你打开心灵的窗户,只要你把眼光投向更遥远的未来,你就能从身边亿亿万万个自然现象中的任何一个现象中看到上帝的灵光,你将会获得“至高无上,大彻大悟”大智慧。

The Greatest Creator treats all people equally, either the white, black, or yellow, the Kings, specialists or common people, either the rich, or the middle class or the poor, either the Muslims, Buddhists, or Christians. The Greatest Creator has offered the same opportunity and right. Take a broad view and you will see faraway mountains are fresh and green..” If you can open your window of your mind and cast your eyes into the future, you can detect the spiritual light given out by The Greatest Creator among billions of natural phenomena around you. And you can obtain the great and supreme wisdom that leads to utmost understanding.

再次寻找工作

本来以为自己会休息半年或者几个月,但是自己还是决定去上班了。

I thought I need to rest for my body at least for six months. But I still want to go out and find a teaching job.

在家的感觉比较无聊,现在找了一份兼职的英语老师工作,但是压力也可以,每天晚上5点上班可能要到晚上9点,昨晚到了晚上9点半。

I feel a little bored about staying at home for one month and now I find a new job about teaching English again. The job time is in the evening, from 5 pm to 8: 30 PM. And I also need have six or seven classes at weekends. The salary is about 4200 RMB per month.

新接手的工作,有点一头雾水的感觉,毕竟有一个月甚至三四个月没有参与教学工作了。而且也会比较担心身体是否能受得了。

I was a beginner of this job and I didn’t work for about one or two months. I worry about my body.

昨晚的睡眠头一次很舒服,一觉睡到天亮。我感觉这是一个好的兆头。

But I slept well last night. I think it is a good starting.

我希望自己能将每天的事情记录在这里,给自己一个反馈或者成长见证。

I hope to keep a dairy here every day to see myself improvement.

昨天面临最大的挑战是,一个6班的微信群,因为自己的紧张或者说杂事比较多,第一次群发上课时间就发错了,内心那种紧张是必然的,好在自己能稳定情绪,主要是女老板一直在身边跟我一起处理事情,我需要一一请示她。

后来可想而知,群里的家长们就开始炸锅,而我因为第一次接触此班级所以也有点手忙脚乱。

收到许多家长们说:时间太晚,课程能否调整?不调整就退费了。

为了处理课程时间,几乎整整耗费了我们半天的时间。

最后就是以,一周我至少要上满12节课,并且每节课的时间都是2小时。

我也不知道自己是否能扛得住,估计危险了。

昨晚的5个六年级的学生们还不错,我觉得自己的课程需要再调整,想多点游戏时间。下节课开始准备照片。

I taught five studuents last night. They are nice but a little naughty. I will start taking pics from today.

希望自己每天都能有所成长和收获。

I hope every day I can learn something and have time to study.

自己也需要花时间来学习文集和冥想呢。

3.上帝是中性的

3. The Greatest Creator is the Neutral

上帝是唯一的,上帝是中性的。

The Greatest Creator is unique and exclusive, and the Greatest Creator is also neutral.

人分男女、动物分公母、植物分雌雄,那么上帝呢?

There are men and women and male and female animals and plants, so what of The Greatest Creator?

我们绝对不能说上帝是男的、或女的、或公的、或母的、或雄的、或雌的。因为如果我们说上帝是男的,那么必然有一个女上帝与上帝相对应,这就破坏了上帝的唯一性。

We can never say The Greatest Creator is male or female because if that were so, then there would have to be a Greatest Creator of the opposite gender to be the opposite, which would dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.

用对立统一的两极也不能去认识上帝,也就是说,我们不能说上帝是真的、或假的、或善的、或恶的、或美的、或丑的,因为如果我们说上帝是善的,那么必然有一个恶的上帝与善的上帝相对应,这同样也破坏了上帝的唯一性。

Nor can we understand the Greatest Creator by using the “bipolarity” in the principle of the unity of opposites. That is to say, we can not define the Greatest Creator as true or false, good or evil, or beautiful or ugly, because if we define the Greatest Creator as good, then there would have to be an evil and opposite Greatest Creator as the opposite of the good Greatest Creator, which would again dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.

物有物性、兽有兽性、人有人性、佛有佛性、神有神性。那么,上帝属什么性呢?

上帝无性,也就是说,上帝没有物性、没有兽性、没有人性、没有佛性、没有神性。把上帝定义在任何一个生命区域内都是不正确的。

Everything, including animals, humans, Buddha, and God, has its respective nature. Then, of what nature is the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator is without nature, which means the Greatest Creator does not have the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or Gods. It is not at all correct to classify the Greatest Creator into any section of LIFE.

说某某人有兽性,肯定是在贬低他;说佛有人性,肯定是在贬低佛;说神有佛性,肯定是在贬低神;说上帝有物性、或兽性、或人性、或佛性、或神性,肯定贬低了上帝。所以,上帝无性,或者可以说,上帝是中性的。

If we were to say that a certain person has the nature of an animal, then we would be degrading him or her. To say that the Buddha has the nature of humans is to degrade the Buddha. Such would be the case to say that a God has the nature of Buddha or that the Greatest Creator has the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or a God. As a result, The Greatest Creator has no nature. The Greatest Creator is neutral.

——————

在此,我不得不谈谈“奎师那知觉运动”,因为这个运动牵扯到上帝。

It is imperative we discuss the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement because is involves the Greatest Creator.

奎师那和奎师那知觉源自印度古老的智慧经典,现被一些有灵性的大师们继承了下来,最杰出的奎师那知觉运动的领袖是圣帕布帕德,该运动有许多闪光的智慧,它注重的是人的灵性层面,而不是人的物质肉体层面。这个运动提倡的许多东西是很有价值的,是可以借鉴的。

Kirtan and Kirtan responsory are originated from the traditional Indian wisdom literatures, which have been inherited by some masters with spiritual nature. The most outstanding leader of the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement is Srila Prabhupada. The Movement shines with wisdom, focusing on the spiritual features, instead of the material or flesh attributes of human beings. Many of its contents are valuable and worthy of being adopted.

但我们必须清楚谁是奎师那。根据圣帕布帕德的许多讲义,我们得知奎师那是宇宙至尊神,这个可以接受,但他还说,奎师那是唯一的,是“万源之源”,谁能是唯一的?谁能是“万源之源”?只有上帝是唯一的,只有上帝是万源之源,这就明确地表明,奎师那就是上帝。

But we have to know who is Kirtan. According to the many lecture sheets of Srila Prabhupada, we know that Kirtan is the Supreme God of the Universe, which is acceptable. However, he also said that Kirtan was sole and only and the “source of all sources”. Who can be sole and only? Who can be the “source of all sources”? Only The Greatest Creator is. So we can conclude that Kirtan is The Greatest Creator.

那么,奎师那是不是真正的上帝呢?

Then, is Kirtan really The Greatest Creator?

在奎师那知觉运动讲义“神的定义”中圣帕布帕德说:“。。。。。。当奎师那在这个地球上显现的时候,他有16108位妻子,每一位妻子都住在用大理石筑成的镶满珠宝的宫殿里,房间里摆放着象牙和黄金做成的家具,到处是一片富丽堂皇。。。。。”

In his lecture sheet ‘Definition of the God’ in the Kirtan responsory , Srila Prabhupada said, “When Kirtan showed up on the Earth, he had 16,108 wives, each of whom lived in the marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid.”

这就是上帝吗?

So is this The Greatest Creator?

不是!

Of course not.

上帝是中性的,既不是男性,也不是女性,上帝怎么会有16108位妻子?为什么不说奎师那有16108位丈夫?这显然是男尊女卑思想的反映。再说,上帝霸占那么多妻子干什么?什么叫“荒淫无道”?用人的思维和肉体欲望给上帝创造这么多妻子,到底是歌颂上帝呢,还是亵渎上帝呢?

Being neutral, The Greatest Creator is neither male nor female. How could The Greatest Creator have 16,108 wives? Why don’t we say Kirtan have 16,108 husbands? Evidently, it is the idea of male superiority. Moreover,The Greatest Creator was much too libidinous if it really had so many wives. Are we extolling or desecrating The Greatest Creator when we generate so many wives for it with the mentality and the lust of flesh of human beings?

奎师那的16108位妻子“都住在用大理石筑成的镶满珠宝的宫殿里,房间里摆放着象牙和黄金做成的家具。”这简直是俗人把自己的意志强加给了上帝,大理石、珠宝、象牙、黄金这些东西在凡俗人的眼中是珍贵的,难道上帝特别喜欢这些东西吗?

The wives of Kirtan lived in the “marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid”. In fact, the laymen have imposed their own wills on The Greatest Creator. Would The Greatest Creator like marbles, jewels, ivory and gold simply because these things are precious in the eyes of the common?

一句话,奎师那不是上帝!

In a word, Kirtan is not The Greatest Creator.

奎师那知觉就是爱神,达到灵性与神的和谐统一。但既然奎师那不是上帝,却贴上了上帝的标签,那么,奎师那知觉就是一种相当危险的知觉,不得不防。

Kirtan responsory is the goddess of love and is to reach the harmonious integrating spiritual nature and god. Nevertheless, we have to be cautious about the Kirtan , who is not The Greatest of Creator but is labeled so, thus the Kirtan responsory is extremely dangerous.

2.上帝无定形

2. The Greatest Creator is Amorphous

上帝是“太极”,是有意识的能量团,能量是无定形的,能量可以成为任意形态,能量进入人体,能量象人;能量进入花卉植物,能量就是枝叶鲜花;能量进入河流,能量就是液态;能量进入石头,能量就是固态;能量进入大气,他就是气态。

The Greatest Creator is Taiji, the energy cluster with consciousness. The energy is amorphous and can take any form.

When it goes into a person’s body, it takes on human form. When it enters a flower or other plant, it becomes that flower or plant. When it flows into rivers, it becomes liquid, when it goes into a stone, it becomes solid, and when it reaches the atmosphere, it becomes gaseous.

根据爱因斯坦的质能方程式:e=mc2知道,物质形成的公式是:m = e/c2,其中c是光速,是一个常数,e是能量,是个变数,也就是说,能量是形成物质的唯一因素,没有能量,就没有物质,没有能量,就没有日月星辰、山石河流、花草树木、虫鱼鸟兽,同样,也就没有人。

From the Albert Einstein’s relativity equation, E=MC², matter is formed by following the formula M=E/C², in which C represents the speed of light,a constant, while E stands for varying amounts of energy. It means that energy is the only factor that forms matter. Without energy, there is no matter, which means no sun, moon, stars, stones, mountains, rivers, flowers, trees, birds, fish, animals, nor even people.

当物质消失后,它们就还原成了能量,因为宇宙的总能量是一个恒数,不会增加,也不会减少。一棵树、一个动物、一幢房子、一罐液化汽等烧光后,是否意味着什么也不存在了呢?不是!它们都还原成了能量。

When matter seems to disappear, it either changes its form or becomes energy, and because the total amount of energy in the Universe is constant, it neither increases nor decreases. So when a tree, an animal, a house, or a tank of gas is burned, does their substance no longer exist? The answer is no. They are transformed into other matter or energy.

一粒种子、一个受精卵,能生长成形,靠的是能量。没有能量,一切皆无。这就是宇宙诞生的基本原理。

A seed or an egg grows and takes shape by relying on energy. Nothing would exist without energy. Such is the basic principle of the birth of the Universe.

如果我们说上帝有什么固定形态,就是大错特错。上帝是没有固定形态的,因为他是能量团,但他可以成为任何形态,也就是说,宇宙万物就是上帝。

We are completely wrong if we believe that The Greatest Creator has some specific form. The Greatest Creator is amorphous because it is the energy cluster and can take any form. This is to say that everything in the Universe is The Greatest Creator.

1.上帝是唯一的

 1. The Greatest Creator is Unique and Exclusive​

对立统一是认识宇宙的一个法宝。世间万事万物均相对而存,失去一方,另一方也就失去了存在的条件:阴阳、正负、内外、表里、男女、雌雄、公母、刚柔、荣辱、顺逆、有无、虚实、生灭、明暗、动静、强弱、尊卑、贵贱、贫富、祸福、功过、得失、进退、正反、大小、上下、多少、前后、左右、真假、善恶、美丑、香臭、仙人、佛魔、神鬼、物灵、天堂地狱、仙界人间等等、等等都是互相依存,共存共荣的,即使一张薄纸,有正面,有反面,若没有正面,就不可能有反面,没有反面,就不可能有正面。

The unity of opposites is the magic key to understanding the Universe. All matter and patterns exist relative to each other. Without any one, no other can exist. Examples include Yin vs. Yang, positive vs. negative, interior vs. exterior, male vs. female, rigid vs. pliable, honor vs. disgrace, clockwise vs. counterclockwise, with vs. without, tangible vs. intangible, life vs. death, light vs. shade, dynamic vs. static, strong vs. weak, noble vs. humble, rich vs. poor, weal vs. woe, merit vs. fault, gain vs. loss, advance vs. retreat, pro vs. con, big vs. small, up vs. down, more vs. less, front vs. rear, true vs. false, good vs. bad, beauty vs. ugliness, fragrant vs. stench, mortal vs. immortal, Buddha vs. demon, fairy vs. ghost, material vs. psychic, heaven vs. hell, and fairy land vs. mortal world. They each rely on the other for their existence. Just as a sheet of paper has a front side and a back side, there would be no front side without the back side. The obverse side depends on the existence of the reverse side and vice versa.

但是,对立统一观无法解释一切现象,规律皆有例外,普遍性中存在着特殊性,共性中有个性,两性中有中性。不偏不倚的中庸之道就是在两极中求取中极。量变质变的零界点就不是对立统一的,而是唯一的。

Nevertheless, the principle of the unity of opposites is unable to explain all phenomena because everything has an exception. Even the generality contains particularity. Apart from the male and female is the neuter. Another example is the existence of the Milky Way galaxy. The critical point between quantitative and qualitative changes does not follow the principle of the unity of opposites. Rather, it is unique.

“无极生太极,太极生两仪……”“无极”是指宇宙万物尚未形成之前的状态,这个状态中没有物质,有的只是能量,这个无影无踪、无形无状的能量在无规则碰撞过程中形成了一个“能量团”——“太极”。(请大家用平底玻璃杯喝杯牛奶,喝光后不要冲洗杯子,将杯子置放12小时,然后观察杯底的形状结构,对理解“太极”的形成有帮助)。“太极”的首次无意识运动带动了整个能量的有序运动,随之,出现了人类意义上的时间和空间,“两仪”诞生。“两仪”就是对立统一的物质和反物质(有形和无形)现象。

Wuji” generates Taiji , Taiji generats the “bipolarity”. “Wuji” refers to the state when there was no substance in the Universe and only the energy existed. The intangible and invisible energy, when moving irregularly, formed an “energy cluster”, or Taiji (Please drink all the milk in the flat-bottomed glass. Leave the glass uncleaned for 12 hours and then observe the shape and structure of the glass bottom. This might help you to understand how Taiji is formed). The first unconscious movement of Taiji has triggered the orderly movement of the entire energy, producing the time and space the human being understands. This is how the “bipolarity” is generated, which is actually the phenomenon of matter and non-matter (tangible and intangible) following the principle of unity of opposites.

“两仪”的形成可以这么理解:能量越大越无形,能量越小越成形。这是宇宙诞生和形成的关键。老子认识到的“大象无形”就是指“两仪”诞生前的能量团,就是“太极”。

We can understand that the “bipolarity” is formed in such a way: the greater the energy is, the more intangible is it and vice versa. This is vital for the birth and formation of the Universe. The “Great form has no contour” stated by Lao Tzu actually refers to the energy cluster before the “bipolarity” was born. As a matter of fact, it is the Taiji.

毛泽东思想就是一种形式的能量团,它影响着许多人的人生,左右了许多人的言行,可是有谁能说清楚它是一种什么颜色、什么形状吗?

Mao Zedong Thought is a form of energy cluster which influenced the life and controlled the words and deeds of many people. However, who can tell the color and shape of Mao Zedong Thought?

我在这里谈及“太极”,目的就是要认识“太极”,“太极”来源于“无极”,也就是诞生于无形无状的能量无规则的紊乱运动碰撞之中,(大家可以在显微镜下观察分子的无规则紊乱运动,太初的能量运动就象分子的运动。)“太极”这个能量团形成后,由于能量世界开始了有序运动,能量小的地方有形物质出现,能量大的地方逐渐形成了无形的反物质,(就象一个人,能量小的地方就是肉体,能量大的地方就是思维灵魂,)从而,由“太极”生出了“两仪”,也就是有形的物质和无形的反物质,正负、阴阳、明暗、真假、善恶等等也随之诞生,宇宙万象从此从“太极”和“两仪”中出现。

The reason we are talking about Taiji here is that we wish to have knowledge about it. Taiji comes from “Wuji” and is originated from the disorderly movement and collisions among the intangible shapeless energy (You can observe the disorderly movement of the molecules via microscope. The original energy movement is just like the molecular movement). After the Taiji energy cluster was formed, the energy world started its orderly movement. The physical substance came into being where the energy was small. And the intangible anti-matter was generated where the energy was in large amount. (Take a man as an example. The part where the energy is small is the flesh and where the energy is great is the mind and soul). Thus, Taiji generated the “bipolarity”, or the physical substances and the intangible anti-matter. As a result, the pairs of negative and positive, Yin and Yang, light and darkness, good and evil were born. Everything in the Universe was then created out of the Taiji and “bipolarity”.

《圣经》讲的耶和华上帝和《古兰经》中讲的真主安拉就是宇宙万物的创造者,毫无疑问,指的就是中国道家认识到的“太极”,名称各异,实质为一。

According to the Holy Bible and the Koran, Jehovah and Allah are the creators of all existence. Undoubtedly, they are the Taiji in Chinese Taoism. Though they have different names, they are identical in nature.

这就是说,“太极”就是上帝,上帝就是“太极”。

In other words, The Greatest Creator is Taiji and Taiji is The Greatest Creator.

“无极生太极,太极生两仪,”宇宙万象来源于“两仪”,“两仪”是对立统一的,而“两仪”来源于“太极”,“太极”却是独一无二的,他不是对立统一的。所以说,上帝是唯一的。上帝没有对立面。

The “Wuji” produced Taiji which then generated “bipolarity”, and everything in the Universe comes from this “bipolarity”. The two sides of bipolarity are the unity of opposites. Though it comes from Taiji, the latter is unique and exclusive. It is not the unity of opposites. As a result, there is only one Greatest Creator who does not have an opposite.
