聽神談【「優越」的幻覺、「一體」和「終極實相」】
 
單純地視幻覺為它們的本來面目——為了一個目的而被設計出來的實相——然後停止將它們視為真實地過活。
 
特別是,別懷著那麼堅定的信念活在「優越」的幻覺裡,反而是要利用這幻覺去注意到「優越」是不真實的。當我們全是一體時,不可能有「優越」這回事。「一」個東西無法比它自己更優越。
 
所有的東西全是同一個,並沒有其他的東西。「我們都是一體的。」不止是個美麗的口號,也是一個對「終極實相的本質」之精確描述(a precise description of the nature of Ultimate Reality)
 
當你明白了這一點,你就能開始以一種新方式體驗生命——並以新方式對待彼此。你將以不同的眼光看待所有事物的關係。你會注意到一個更高得多的層面的相連性。你的覺知擴展了。你的洞察力變得非常深邃。相當實在地,你看穿進去。
 
這份能深人凝視生命的增強能力,使得你能略過幻覺而認清(recognize)——「再次認識」、再認知(”know again”, to re-cognize)——你的實相。就是藉由這個過程,你記起你「真正是誰」。
 
這個從「不知道」到「再次認識」的過程,可能進行得很緩慢。這旅程可能是小的步伐在前進。但永遠別忘了,小步伐可以產生大進展。
 
這種小步前進之一是終止「較優越」的觀念。
 
優越感的想法是人類有史以來的最誘人想法。它能在瞬間將人心化為石頭、將溫暖變成冷漠、將贊同變成反對。
 
只要從你們的佈道壇、演講台和主席台上,由你們的國會與你們的世界高峰領袖們說出一句話,便可改變每一件事。這句話是:
 
「我們的方法並不是一種較好的方法,我們的只是另一種方法。」(”Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.”)
 
這謙虛的一句話,可以開始治癒你們宗教之間的分隔,關閉你們政黨之間的嫌隙,終止你們國家之間的衝突。
 
用一個字,你就能終止它們。
 
「Namast'e」(註:印度和尼泊爾人的問候語,通常以雙手合掌於胸前說出。)
 
「我內在的神尊敬並榮耀你內在的神。」(God in me honors God in you.)
 
摘自《與神合一》第9章
 
 
 
 
But you can undo all of this right now. Simply see the Illusions for what they are—realities contrived for a purpose— and then stop living them as if they were real.
 
In particular stop living The Ninth Illusion with such conviction. Indeed, use the illusion to notice that Superiority is not real. There can be no such thing as Superiority when We Are All One. A thing cannot be superior to itself.
 
All things are One Thing, and there is nothing else. "We Are All One" is more than a beautiful slogan. It is a precise description of the nature of Ultimate Reality. When you understand this, you begin experiencing life—and treating each other—in a new way. You see the relationship of all things differently. You notice the connectedness at a much higher level. Your  awareness is expanded, your insight becomes very keen. You, quite literally, see in.
 
This increased ability to peer deeply into life allows you to look past the Illusion and to recognize—to "know again," to re-cognize—your reality. It is by this process that you remember Who You Really Are.
 
This movement, from not knowing to knowing again, may be made slowly. The journey may be undertaken in small steps. Small steps can produce large advances. Always remember that.
 
One such small step would be to put an end to better.
 
The idea of Superiority is the most seductive idea ever visited upon the human race. It can turn the heart to stone, change warm to cold, yes to no, in an instant.
 
A single sentence, uttered from your pulpits, lecterns, and rostrums, by your national congresses and your world summit leaders, could change everything.
 
"Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way."
 
This humble utterance could begin to heal the divisions between your religions, close the gap between your political parties, curb the conflicts between your nations.
 
With one word you could end them.
 
"Namasté."
 
God in me honors God in you.
