此心光明,亦复何言 Bright Heart


We read "Fantastic Tales By Ji Xiaolan" every day when we meditate. Some stories in it tell that those who are upright and kind will not be afraid of demons and ghosts. Whenever I hear a story like this, I compare myself to the people in the story because I've always been terrified of dark places. Whenever I am alone in a dark room or an empty basement, all kinds of scary scenes will appear in my mind, such as the toad spirit who will pull people down underground, the female ghost crawling out of the TV, etc., let me I dare not stick my feet out of the quilt while sleeping. When I read a similar story again this week, I found that I was not as afraid of dark places and ghosts as I used to be. As the saying goes: "If you don't do anything wrong, you won't be afraid of ghosts knocking on your door." The hearts of honest and kind people are bright, and they have no worldly distractions, and they will not deceive others or have harmful intentions. Those who have evil thoughts and lack of virtue will naturally attract the approach of ghosts. Mr. Wang Yangming once said: "This heart is bright, but what can I say?" So I must continue to work hard to make my heart brighter. At the same time, you must also become confident and firm, so that you will not be shaken by external interference.
