致:我 / To: Me

English Version Below
  你哭了。
  你为何半夜醒来,盘腿而坐?
  是睡不着吗?有什么烦心事吗?
  你为何而哭?你从你紧闭的双眸看见了什么?你又听见了什么?
  你是否看见了阿弥陀佛的慈悲?是否看见了众生的痛苦?
  这个充满情感的红尘,化成了七情六欲,就像一锅热水,而众生便沉浸在这水深火热中,无法逃脱。
  你不妨仔细听,仔细地聆听。
  聆听着夜的寂静,除了风扇微弱的呼啸,时钟的滴答,你还听见了什么?在这静谧的夜,你能够真正的听到静的声音吗?静谧,是听得见的,还是你只听到众生痛苦的抽泣?
  你是不是为此而哭?不,你不是在哭,你只是在心里默默地抽泣。
  往事,如倒带的录影在你眼前闪过,你的双眸,是你眼前的屏幕。所有的一切展现在你的眼前,你所经过的,见过的,听过的,读过的,等等等等。
  你知道这一切都是那么不真实,却又真实。与此同时,你也知道这个世界时如此的真实,却又虚幻。
  你是否迷糊了?在这一段旅程,你是否迷惘了?你是在寻找正果吗?你知道你要什么吗?
  不要转头回望,回头也没有用,因为来时路已经在背后,走不回了。
  也不要往前看,前景不过是海市蜃楼,皆是虚幻。
  往内看吧!看看你身处何处。此时此刻才是你唯一拥有的。或许那只是一片黑暗,或许那是一片寂静,但你不是一直在寻找平静吗?这一片黑暗以及静是你此刻唯一拥有的。
  若是你不珍惜此刻,它们将会在瞬间消失。
  你的呼吸,你的灵魂,此时此刻正与你同在。好好地感受它们,听这天籁之音,感觉着自然的爱,让心充满感恩,慈悲以及正念。
  但是,你的尘缘未了,你的恶业太重,这个世界还有许多债务需要你去偿还。你能做的只是忏悔,再把你的爱奉献给你的亲人,你的挚友,你的知己,慢慢扩散到所有众生。
  这世界本就是如此,你改变不了。你能改变的是你自己。当你改变了自己,你便可以散发一身的欢喜与光亮,那么你就可以感化你身边的人。
  现在,请你睁开眼,然后在这静默的夜,把你心中的那声音,静静地说出口来……

  You are crying.
  Why are you sitting legs crossed in the middle of the night?
  Are you not able to sleep? Is something bothering you?
  And why do you cry? What do you see through your closed lids? What do you hear as you chant the name of Amitabha?
  Do you not see the great compassion of Amida Buddha? Do you not see the sufferings of sentient beings?
  The sentient world, full of feelings and emotions, turning into greeds and lusts, is like a boiling pot. Mankind is suffering in this huge pot, unable to escape from the ever changing world.
  Now, listen.
  Listen to the silence of the night, except for the whistling fan and the ticking clock. Beyond the whistles and the ticking, do you hear the silence? Silence in itself can be heard. Can you hear the peace? Or the crying of all humans?
  Is that the reason why you are crying? No, you are not crying. You are weeping silently.
  Memories flashes by right in front of you. Your closed lids form the screens. They are flashing  all that you have been through, and all that you have seen, observed, learned and on and on.
  You know that this is not real and yet so real. In the contrary, you also know that the world is so real and yet not real.
  Are you confused? Have you lost your way in the journey to look for peace? Is it enlightenment that you have been searching for? Or what do you want?
  No, don’t turn your head. There is no point in looking back, for whatever is over is over.
  No, don’t look ahead, for it may not be the way you want it to be.
  Look within, look at where you are now. The here and the now is what you have. It may be dark, it may be quiet, but isn’t peace what you are looking for? This quietness and this darkness  are all that you have now.
  And if you don’t cherish them, they will be gone the moment you don’t cherish them.
  Your breath, your soul, are all in the present moment. So, make good use of them, feel them, hear the sound of the nature, feel the love of nature, be thankful, be compassionate and be mindful.
  But you have incomplete  tasks in this world. You have many debts on your shoulder. All you can do is to repent on your sins, and then shower your love on your loved ones, your close friends, your confidante, and spread to all sentient beings in time to come.
  The world is what it is. You can’t change it, but you can change yourself. The moment you change yourself, you can influence others with the happiness that you have found.
  Now, open your eyes, and speak out what’s in your mind…

  1. Dear Francis,

    在我出發之前讀了這一篇至情至性的書寫,心裡的安慰無可言喻。 你已經走在修行的路上,一句彌陀聖號將佛子的心願連結起來,彌陀在心,老實念佛,等待花開,度眾自在。

  2. 那个夜晚;我哭了,释放了自己压抑许久的情绪;至今仍然无法平复。很喜欢你这一句 :“往内看吧!看看你身处何处。此时此刻才是你唯一拥有的。或许那只是一片黑暗,或许那是一片寂静,但你不是一直在寻找平静吗?这一片黑暗以及静是你此刻唯一拥有的。”
    以前我很喜欢一面写日记,一面哭;我觉得那样很真实。
