Heart and Mind 心與意識心

How often hath the human heart, which is the recipient of the light of God and the seat of the revelation of the All-Merciful, erred from Him Who is the Source of that light and the Well Spring of that revelation. (Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh 93) 人的心是上帝之光的接收者,為滿懷慈悲者啟示的宅地,然而,人心卻往往迷失了方向而遠離祂那靈光之源和啟示之泉。(巴哈歐拉聖文選粹93) Although […]

靈裡的禱告 Pray in spirit

榮光之子啊! 除了我,忘記一切並與我靈交。這乃是我誡命的精華,轉向它吧。(巴哈歐拉,隱言經16) O Son of Light! Forget all save Me and commune with My spirit. This is of the essence of My command, therefore turn unto it. (Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words 16) 靈裡的禱告是忘掉一切想法和外面的環境,而顧到的是裏面的感受。譬如碰到困難時,帶著事情來到神面前祈求神幫助,我們顧慮的就是(外面的)事情,而不是(裏面的)感受,這是心思的禱告。若我們帶著的是感受來祈禱,我們在神面前面對的是自己的軟弱(害怕或擔心的感受),我們祈求的自然是克服軟弱的力量,我們專注的是在靈裡倚靠神,不斷在軟弱中交託,藉著倚靠神的力量來度過心思帶來的暴風雨。進入靈裡,看見的與面對的是感受,不再是事情。 Praying in spirit requires us to forget the world outside and the ideas in our mind. The […]

Spiritual mind set

靈性觀照Spiritual mind set 量子物理的研究我們知道,光既是粒子,也是波動。科學家發現,當觀察者的實驗的設置針對觀察粒子而設置時,所觀察到的就只是粒子特質;當實驗設置是針對觀察波動的時,所觀察的就是波動的特質。科學家發現,這是創造界的complimentary 互補特質,但因為人選擇觀察的角度,而有了觀察的效應(observer effect )。我發現,這特質也同樣反映在我們看事情上。 As we know, quantum science discovered that light is a particle and also a wave. Science discovered that when an experiment set up for particle observing, what they observe is only particle behavior. When the experiment set up for wave observing, what they […]
