【什麼是「終極實相」的例子】

觀念、信念甚至業力都能夠也可以改變或被改變,而當我們改變了它們時,事實上只是我們的「視角」改變了,也就是我們「體驗生命、體驗終極實相」的方式改變了。生命如是,終極實相即那如是的生命...
 
 
聽神談什麼是「終極實相」的例子
 
你有沒有在戶外走路時突然開始下雨的經歷?
 
尼爾: 當然了,不止一次。
 
很好。你對下雨那一刻的實相之體驗,是惱怒和厭煩,還是驚喜和快樂呢?
 
尼爾:事實上,我記得兩種體驗都有。有一次,我對它的體驗絕對是厭煩的,對於開始下雨這件事感到十分惱怒。我在雨中奔跑,想盡快找到避雨之處,但還是沒用,我渾身都浸濕了。
 
另一次我記得是在夏天,我和一位年輕的女性友人在一起,然後開始下雨了。當我們在一個寬敞的停車場裡,這個年輕的女士突然脫掉了衣服,然後開始在雨中跳舞!她快樂地又蹦又跳,而我站在一旁目瞪口呆,濕透的頭髮一縷一縷地掛在我的額頭上。
 
她笑話我,激我敢不敢加入。於是我加入了。然後我們繞著停車場跳了差不多五分鐘,直到員警走了過來。那個警官非常和善——事實上是個女警官——她只叫我們把衣服穿上,因為她不想以有妨害風化或妨害公共秩序的罪名逮捕我們。我們三個人都笑了,然後我們穿上了衣服,而我永遠也忘不了這位女士。這是純粹的、無拘無束的歡樂,是一段快樂的調皮時光。
 
當然了,我知道這事——而這正是我使用這個特殊例子的原因。現在我要問你一個問題:雨有什麼不同嗎?
 
尼爾:什麼?
 
第一個例子中所下的雨與第二個例子中的雨有什麼不同嗎?是更濕?還是下得更大?是不是雨滴更冷或更大?
 
尼爾::不,其實所有的情況都差不多。第一次的雨並不比第二次下得更大或更猛烈。兩次都是美妙的夏日淋浴。
 
那麼兩次經歷的不同之處在哪兒呢?
 
尼爾:我看待它們的方式。我的觀點不同。在第一個例子中,我穿著西裝,正趕往一個很重要的會議,我當時的觀點是這場雨非常討厭。不只是討厭,它還打亂了我的計畫,是我路上的一個障礙。而在另一個例子中,我穿得 很隨意,也不必趕時間去任何地方。所以覺得那場雨“ 看起來”會很有趣。
 
那麼,是誰創造了這些觀點 (視角) ?
 
尼爾:當然是我了。
 
你原本可以決定那場會議沒那麼重要,大家會理解你是因為下雨才顯得有些狼狽,你那略微不整的形象並沒有什麼大不了的,對嗎?你本可以「 以這種方式看待」的,對嗎?
 
尼爾:是的
 
現在把這雨想成是「終極實相」。你無法改變下雨這個事實,但你可以透過改變你看待它的方式,而改變你對下雨的體驗。你無法改變終極實相,但你能以任何你希望的方式去體驗終極實相 (you could experience Ultimate Reality any way that you wish)
 
這是生命的最大秘密。 (This is the biggest secret of life.)
 
 
摘自《與神談生死》第13章
 
 
 
In this case, let's go back to something that you can pull up from your own memory. Talk about taking something from your own "walk through life"--did you ever find yourself out walking when suddenly it began to rain?
 
Neale: Of course. More than once.
 
Good. Now did you experience that moment, the reality of that rainfall, as an annoyance and a bother, or as a wonder and a delight.
 
Neale: Well, I can remember, actually, experiencing both. I mean, I remember one time that this happened when I absolutely experienced it as a bother. I was furious that it had started raining. 
 
I ran for cover as fast as I could, but it was no use. I got soaked.
 
Another time I remember walking with a young lady friend of mine on a summer day, and the sky opened. We were in a parking lot with lots of space and the young woman abruptly tore her clothes off and began dancing in the rain! She was dancing and hopping and jumping for joy, and I was standing there dumbfounded, my soaked head of hair falling in streaks across my forehead.
 
She laughed at me and dared me to join her. So I did. And we danced around that parking lot for almost five minutes before the police came. The officer was very nice--it was a woman, actually-and she simply asked us to put our clothes back on because she did not want to have to arrest us for indecent exposure or becoming a public nuisance. All three of us laughed, and we followed her request, but it was a moment in my life I will never forget. It was sheer, unbridled joy. It was joyful mischief.
 
And, of course, I knew about that moment--which is why I used this particular example. Now let me ask you a question. What was different about the rain?
 
Neale: I'm sorry?
 
In what way was the rain in the first incident different from the rain in the second? Was it wetter? Was it raining harder? Were the water drops colder or bigger?
 
Neale: No. Everything was just about the same, actually. It was no more stormy or furious during the first rain than it was during the second. Both where just nice summer showers.
 
So what WAS the difference in the two experiences?
 
Neale: The way I looked at them. My perspective. In one instance I had on a business suit and was heading for a very important meeting, and my perspective was that the rain was a nuisance. More than a nuisance. It was an intrusion on my plan. It was an obstacle in my way. In the other instance I was dressed quite casually and had no specific time that I needed to be anywhere. It "looked like" the rain could be fun.
 
Yes. And who created those perspectives?
 
Neale: I did, of course.
 
You could have decided that the business meeting wasn't that important, or that your showing up a little messed would be completely understood and wouldn't matter, yes? You could have "seen it that way," yes?”
 
Neale: Yes.
 
So now think of the rain as "ultimate reality. You couldn't change the fact that it was raining, but you could change your experience of the rain by changing the way you looked at it. You couldn't change Ultimate Reality, but you could experience Ultimate Reality any way that you wished.
 
This is the biggest secret of life.
