摘要: 課程裏只不斷的說要與聖靈結合,因這正是你我體驗與人合一的前提。與人合一,指的不是以任何外在形式或行為結合,而是你我不再把自己與他人的利益視為兩回事。


 

Choose to change your mind about the world

改變心靈對世界的想法(摘譯自Ken Wapnick 演講記錄)       學徒小組初譯

I think that what’s important, and I guess it’s a premise that underlies everything I’ve been saying so far, is that A Course in Miracles is a spiritual path. It is not a way of life in the sense of anything external. It is certainly not meant to be a cult, it is not meant to be a community, and it’s not meant to be a church. It not meant to be anything. It is a spiritual path that individual people participate in, if they choose. That’s why there’s nothing in this Course about joining in terms of groups. Absolutely nothing. There’s a tremendous amount in this Course about joining with the Holy Spirit, which then becomes the prerequisite for your experiencing a oneness with other people. This doesn’t mean about joining with them, in any kind of external form, or external behavior. It means joining with them in the sense that you no longer see your interest as separate from theirs. And this joining, which basically is an acceptance of a joining that’s already there; it’s not something that you do, because we are already joined. It’s the ego that tells us that we are separated.

我一再述說的重點是,奇蹟課程一條靈修道路。它的目的,不是針對任何外在的生活方式,不在於成立狂熱的宗教崇拜組織,當然也不在於組織社群或教會。它不是為了這些而存在,而是一條由個人自行選擇是否參與其中的靈修道路。所以,奇蹟課程中不提團體性的「結合」觀念,一個字都沒有。課程裏只不斷的說要與聖靈結合,因這正是你我體驗與人合一的前提。與人合一,指的不是以任何外在形式或行為結合,而是你我不再把自己與他人的利益視為兩回事。我們本來就是一體了,真正的合一就是接受我們本為一體的事實,而不是靠你我做什麼。是小我要我們相信我們是分離的。

So that the only joining that is important, and the only focus of that joining, is the joining in our mind; away from the ego with which we have previously joined, and now joining with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. That’s the joining. That is called the greater joining. And that joining with the Holy Spirit once again becomes the basis for our experiencing our brothers and sisters as being one with us. Sharing the same interest, singular. And that interest, that goal, that purpose is to awaken from this dream. Another way of saying the same thing is that the ego has taught us in this world it’s one or the other. I win you lose. So our interests are indeed separate.

因此唯一重要的結合,及結合的唯一焦點,是心靈層次上的結合,離開我們先前小我的結合盟約,轉為耶穌和聖靈的結合,這才是更偉大的結合。再重申一次,與聖靈的結合,是我們體驗與弟兄合一的基礎,共享我們同一個利益。結合的利益與目的,就是要我們從這個夢境覺醒。小我說的則是另一套:在這世界中一切非此即彼,我贏你輸。我們的利益也就真的隨之分裂了。

So the first step for us in learning how to live in the world as a student of the Course is to understand that the purpose now of living in this world, again, is not to change the world. It is not to convert the world, not to preach to the world, not to teach to the world. The purpose of the world is to be this microscope that allows us to look within and see this unseen world. An unseen world yet that is incredibly powerful because it determines everything we do.

身為《奇蹟課程》的學員,學會如何活在世界上,第一步就是了解我們在世上的目的不是要改變世界,不是要轉化世界,不是向世界說教,當然也不是要教導世界。世界存在的目的,只是充當一個顯微鏡,讓我們從中見到肉眼視而不見的世界。那個世界,肉眼雖看不見,卻無比強大,因為它操控了我們的所作所為。
