Selfless 无私无我

我们这周读了阅微草堂笔记中的几篇文章感受很深,其中有一篇是这样的,从前有一个叫郑苏仙的人,一天在梦中来到了冥府,看到阎王正在逐个审查被登录的鬼魂,这时来了一个邻村老太太,阎王一见她马上就换了一副温和的表情,对她拱手相迎然后赐于香茶,之后更是命令身边的官吏赶快送她到一个好地方投胎。郑苏仙很奇怪就问身边的冥吏:“一个农家老婆子,能有什么功德?”冥吏说:“这个老太太一生从来没有损人利己的心思。利己之心,即使是贤士大夫也是很难避免的。想要利己的人必定会损害别人的,这样种种诡诈奸巧,种种诬陷冤屈事件也因此制造出来,还有甚者遗臭万年,流毒四海,皆是因为这种利己的私心制造成的。这样以一个农村妇女能够控制自己私心,读书讲学的儒生站在她的面前,很多都会面有愧色。阎王格外尊重她又有什么好奇怪的。”

是啊,能控制自己一生都不产生私心,这样的人即使没有真正修炼,也已在道中了,所以鬼神尊重她确实没什么好奇怪的。今后我也会好好努力,争取早日成为一个像老婆婆这样不损人利己,完全为他的人。


We read several articles in the Fantastic Tales By Ji Xiaolan this week and felt very deeply. One of them is like this. Once upon a time, a man named Zheng Suxian came to the underworld in a dream and saw the King Yan reviewing the registered one by one. Ghost, an old lady from a neighboring village came here. As soon as King Yan saw her, he immediately changed a gentle expression, greeted her and gave her fragrant tea, and then ordered the officials around him to send her to a good place as soon as possible. Place reincarnation. Zheng Suxian was very surprised, so he asked the underworld official beside him: "What kind of merit can an old peasant woman have?" The underworld official said, "This old lady has never had the idea of self-interest at the expense of others in her life. Self-interest is hard to avoid even for a wise man. Those who want to benefit themselves will definitely harm others. All kinds of cunning and cunning, all kinds of slander and injustice incidents are created because of this, and what's more, they are notorious and poisonous all over the world, all because of this selfish selfishness. Rural women can control their own selfishness, and Confucian scholars who study and give lectures stand in front of her, and many of them will look ashamed. It is no wonder that the King of Hades respects her so much."

Yes, a person who can control herself and not have selfishness in her life, even if she has not really cultivated, is already in the Tao, so it is not surprising that ghosts and gods respect her. In the future, I will work hard and strive to become a person like the old woman who does not harm others and benefits herself, and is completely for him.
