聽神談【突破人類「優越」的幻覺的惡性循環
 
即使是宗教——一個被視為創造來讓你們更接近神的人為機構——都太常用優越做為他們主要的工具。許多機構都曾宣稱:「我們的宗教比別的宗教優越」。故此,反而讓人類在到達神的路途上離神更遠,而不是結合他們。 
 
國家與民族、種族與性別、政黨與經濟體系,全都在利用它們假設的優秀或優越去吸引注意、尊敬、認同、依隨、權力,或只是成員。他們利用這工具所製造的東西絕不是優秀。
 
然而,大部分的人類都仿佛是盲目的或怪異地沉默。他們無法看到自己建立在優越感上的行為,實際上在每方面都產生出低劣的行為。或者他們的確看到了,只是拒絕承認。結果是那自稱優越的循環得以合理化其行為,然後承受著那些行為的低劣結果,一直繼續不斷。
 
有一個方法可以突破這惡性循環:
 
視這幻覺為一種幻覺(See this Illusion as an illusion.) 。並且了解和明白最終我們全是一體的。人類以及所有的生命是個一體的場域(unified field 統一場)。它整個是「同一個東西」 (It is all One Thing.) 。所以,沒有什麼是比較優越的東西,也沒有什麼是比你優越的東西。
 
這是人生經驗的實質真相。鬱金香比玫瑰要優越嗎?山比海更壯麗嗎?哪片雪花最華麗?可不可能它們全都一樣華麗——並已那樣,一起慶祝它們的華麗壯觀,共同創造一個令人敬畏的展示?然後,它們溶入彼此,而成為一體。然而它們從不分開它們從不消失它們從未停止存在。它們只是,改變了形態。而且不只一次,是好幾次:從固體到液體,從液體到氣體,從可見到不可見,再次升起,然後再次以令人摒息的美麗與神奇的展示重返。這是生命,滋養著生命。
 
這是你。
 
這比喻是完整的。
 
這比喻是真實的。
 
你只要下決定這是真的,並照之行事,你就會在你的經驗裡使之成真。你就會看見所有你在生活觸及的人們之美麗與神奇。因為你們每個的確都是神奇的,但沒有一個人比另一個人更神奇。而有一天,你們全都會溶為一體,共同形成一股單一的洪流。
 
這樣的一個知曉(knowing),將改變你們在地球上的整個經驗。它將改變你們的政治、你們的經濟、你們的社會互動、你們教育年輕人的方式。最後,它會帶給你們——人間天堂。
 
當你看到優越是一種幻覺時,你們會明白,低劣也同樣是個幻覺。然後你們將感受到平等——與彼此及與神平等——的神奇和力量。你們「關於你自己」的想法會變得更大,而優越幻覺之所以存在的緣故將會被體認。因為,你對你的想法越大,你的經驗就越大。
 
永遠記住這個:
 
你對你的想法越大,你的經驗就越大。 (The larger your idea of you, the larger will be your experience.)
 
 
摘自《與神合一》第15章
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Even religions, the one human institution which was supposedly created to bring you closer to God, have too often used Superiority as their chief tool. "Our religion is superior to the other religion," many institutions have declared, thus doing more to separate human beings on the path to God than to unite them.
 
States and nations, races and genders, political parties and economic systems have all sought to use their supposed Superiority to attract attention, respect, agreement, adherence, power, or, simply, members. What they have produced by using this tool has been anything but superior.
 
Yet the largest part of the human race seems blind or is strangely silent. It cannot see that its own superiority-based behaviors are actually producing inferiority in every way. Or it does see this, and simply refuses to admit it. The result is that the cycle of claiming Superiority as justification for its actions, and then suffering the inferior results of those actions, goes on and on.
 
There is a way to break out of this cycle.
 
See this Illusion as an illusion. Understand and know at last that We Are All One. The human race, and all of Life, is a unified field. It is all One Thing. There is, therefore, nothing to be superior to, and nothing that is superior to you.
 
This is the essential truth of the life experience. Is the tulip superior to the rose? Are the mountains more majestic than the sea? Which snowflake is the most magnificent? Is it possible that they are all magnificent—and that, celebrating their magnificence together, they create an awesome display? Then they melt into each other, and into the Oneness. Yet they never go away. They never disappear. They never cease to be. Simply, they change form. And not just once, but several times: from solid to liquid, from liquid to vapor,from the seen to the unseen, to rise again, and then again to return in new displays of breathtaking beauty and wonder. This is Life, nourishing Life.
 
This is you.
 
The metaphor is complete.
 
The metaphor is real.
 
You will make this real in your experience when you simply decide that it is true, and act that way. See the beauty and the wonder of all whose lives you touch. For you are each wondrous indeed, yet no one more wondrous than another. And you will all one day melt into the Oneness, and know then that you form together a single stream.
 
Such a knowing will change the entirety of your experience on earth. It will change your politics, your economics, your social interactions, the way you educate your young. It will bring you, at last, heaven on earth. 
 
When you see that Superiority is an illusion, you will know that inferiority is an illusion as well. Then you will feel the wonder and power of equality—with each other, and with God. Your idea about yourself will become larger, and the reason for the Illusion of Superiority will have been realized. For the larger your idea of you, the larger will be your experience.
 
Always remember that.
 
The larger your idea of you, the larger will be your experience.
