心的紀律

早前看到TheTibetPost.com報導西藏精神領袖達賴喇嘛的一篇文章,提到現代教育,個人很認同,想在這裡分享一下。

今天的教育,往往集中在物質的目標上發展,我們尋求音樂的感官滿足或欣賞、品味和觸摸美好的事物。但一旦結束後,喜悅也結束了。

Scientists are producing findings to show that basic human nature is positive and compassionate, but unfortunately modern education is inadequate when it comes to developing it. Too little attention is paid to inner values.

我們真正需要是植根於心靈力量的幸福,為了實現幸福,我們需要理解心靈和情感的運作。

無論幸福還是痛苦,全然取決於心的紀律。

World peace can only be based on inner peace. If we ask what destroys our inner peace, it’s not weapons and external threats, but our own inner flaws like anger. When you meet someone you don’t like, or someone says something unpleasant to you, it’s your own response that disturbs your inner peace. What’s more, constant fear and anger undermine our immune system. This is one of the reasons why love and compassion are important, because they strengthen us. This is a source of hope.
