The dynamics of how events happen is a big mystery. Only one who is 100 per cent in doing can recognise the happening. The healthiest way to apply this knowledge is to see the whole past as happening and the present as doing. If you see the past as doing, then ego and regret come along. And when you see the present as happening, laziness and unawareness set in. Let the happening be for the past and the doing for the present. And the future is a mix of both.

事件发生的走向和流动是非常神秘的。只有百分百投入行动的人能够辨识当下的发生。运用这个知识最健康的方式是把过去当成”发生”,当下当成”作为”。如果你把过去看成”作为”,那随之而来的是我执和后悔。如果你把当下当成”发生”,那又离不开惰性和缺少觉知。让”发生”成为过去,”作为”成为当下,未来则是两者的结合。

The wise will see the doing in happening and the happening in doing simultaneously. One who does a lot of work will never say he did a lot. If someone says he did a lot of work, it that means he can do more. He has not done enough. Work does not tire you as much as the “doership” does.

有智慧的人能同时在发生里发现哪些是作为,也能在作为里发现那些是发生。一个付出很多的人不会把自己的付出挂在嘴边。如果某个人说他已经做很多了,那意味着他还能做得更多。他做得还不足。工作本身不累,累的是”作为者”的心态。

All actions happen through consciousness. The world moves because of consciousness. Consciousness expresses the three shaktis ¬- gyan shakti, ichcha shakti and kriya shakti. Knowledge, action and desire. If these shaktis are aligned, life becomes very smooth. If not, life is in doldrums.

所有的行动透过意识发生。这个世界透过意识运转。意识透过三种能量展现,”gyan”知识的能量,”ichcha”欲望的能量和”kriya”行动的能量。知识,行动和欲望。如果这三种能量的方向一致,那生命便会顺畅。否则,生命是很低迷的!

It will be very foolish to desire something that is not aligned with knowledge — like having a desire to own a house on the moon.

好比你渴望一间在月球上的房子,渴望一些和知识不符的事物是愚蠢的。

When there is lack of knowledge, you get stuck in the desire. Sometimes you have some knowledge, but you don’t act on it. Then also you become miserable.

当你缺乏知识时,你卡在欲望里。有时候你具备一些知识,但你没有运用。那一样悲惨。

Many a time you say that you will do certain things or that you want to do certain things, yet you never do it. You just keep postponing something that you know is very good. The desire to do is there and you also know that it is good for you, but still you don’t do it. This is lack of kriya shakti.

很多时候你说你将会或你想做某些事,却从未行动。你不断展延那些你已确认很好的事。想做的欲望到位了,同时你意识到这有利于你,你偏不做。这是因为缺乏行动的能量。

Ichcha shakti is desire, gyana shakti is the power of knowledge and kriya shakti is the power to act. Some people have lots of kriya shakti, but lack gyana shakti. They have the power to act, but there is no knowledge of what to do. When this happens, people become restless – the kriya shakti doesn’t allow them to be quiet.  And on the other end of the scale, there are people who are not so active — lack of kriya shakti. Such people will simply sit quiet but their minds will go on working. Then there are people who lack ichcha shakti. In them, there is no strong desire. They do something for sometime and do something else two minutes later. They lack the desire to complete the action and their minds keep changing. Lethargy is manifestation of lack of ichcha shakti. Some people will have a lot of knowledge, but no desire to share with others. They have lots of gyana shakti, but no ichcha shakti. A perfect balance of these shaktis is very rare.

“Ichcha”是欲望的能量,”gyan”是知识的能量, “kriya” 则是行动的能量。有些人拥有”kriya “,但缺乏”gyan” 的能量。他们虽能行动,但缺乏从何下手的知识。人在这种情况下变得很浮躁。”kriya “的能量让此人无法静下心来。另一个极端的情况是因缺乏行动能量而显得不活跃。他们安静地呆着,脑袋却不断运转。再来就是缺乏”ichcha”能量的人。这些人缺乏强大的意愿。他们搞搞这,搞搞那的,缺乏完成一项行动的欲望,想法也一直改变。缺乏”ichcha” 的欲望能量随后会形成慵懒。有些人充满知识,却不屑于和他人分享。他们拥有许多的”gyan” 知识能量, “ichcha” 能量却很匮乏。这三种能量完美的平衡是很稀缺的。

Desire, awareness of the Self and action all are manifestation of the same energy that is you. One of these three dominates at a time. When desire dominates, awareness of the Self will be at its lowest. That’s why all the philosophers around the world have always advocated renunciation and dropping of desires. When you are in a state of awareness, happiness dawns and when desire dominates, stress and sorrow take over.

欲望,对本我的觉知和行动从相同的能量里展现,那就是”你”。这其中某种能量会主导某个时刻。欲望主导时,对本我的觉知就会退缩。这就是为什么全世界的哲学家都在提倡断舍离。当你充满觉知时,快乐展现。当欲望主导时,压力和痛苦就会占上风了。

When actions dominate, restlessness follows. When your actions and desires are aligned to the Divine or to the welfare of society, then the consciousness is automatically elevated and the knowledge of the Self dawns. There is a Big Mind and a Small Mind. Sometimes the Big Mind wins over the Small Mind and sometimes it is the other way around. When the Small Mind wins over, it is misery and when the Big Mind wins, it is joy. Small Mind promises joy and leaves your hand empty. Big Mind may bring resistance in the beginning but fills you with joy.

当行动主导时,浮躁随之而来。当行动和欲望和神性或公益挂钩时,意识的境界会自然升华,对本我的认知油然而生。心智有大小我之分,有时大我战胜小我,有时会反过来。当小我占上风时是悲惨的,反之,大我主导时则是喜悦! 小我承诺你喜悦,但从不兑现。大我在开始时也许满是障碍,但随后会让你充满喜悦!
