覺醒所發生的一切並不是轉化、蛻變或是靈性揚升。那麼何謂開悟之道?_上﹝Sumeet Jain蘇米特.嘉恩﹞

 

Hello every one and Namaste from India. It is so good to have u all here today with me on this journey of Spiritual Reawakening and self mastery program. As the name suggests, it is spiritual reawakening- meaning we were awakened beings but somehow lost ourselves along the journey called life. I come from India the land of spirituality and have been following spirituality since my childhood. Having being subjected to many masters in my life, I have seen the wonders of spirituality and role it plays in the outcomes we face in our daily lives.

哈囉大家好,這是來自印度的問候。很高興今天大家跟我一起踏上這段靈性覺醒及自我成師的旅程。正如同標題所說這是關於靈性覺醒,意思就是我們以往全是醒悟之人,只是在人生了旅途中我們迷失了自我。我來自靈性國度-印度,自幼就追隨靈性。並且在人生中經歷了許多的大師,也見識過許多靈性上的奇蹟,以及它在我們日常生活中所扮演的角色。

 

Thats why I along with the world spiritual university, and some quantum physics scientists and medical doctors and healers have formed a program to give spiritual solutions to people which really work and have scientific proofs behind them. Our past students show remarkable results within just a few days of taking the program and it is proven right in front of them scientifically, so there is no dearth of ambiguity in any ones mind. Today I will share a little bit about this remarkable and revolutionary program.

於是我與世界靈性大學、幾位量子物理學家、醫生及療癒師合作了一個計畫,為人們提供真正有效又有科學依據的靈性上解答。過去參與過這個計畫的學生都在幾天內看到顯著的效果。由於都是以科學的方式證明給他們看,所以他們任何人的腦中都不再有一些模擬兩可的不確定性。

今天我想跟大家分享一下這個卓越與革命性的計畫。

 

First thing first. Spiritual RE-Awakening! What a beautiful term, charged with images of great sages sitting peacefully in meditation, as well as lifelong seekers desperate to be free of their suffering. It is an often misunderstood term, as it is regularly confused with expanded ego states,

首先,靈性再崛起!是個多美麗的名詞啊,充滿了偉大聖人靜坐冥想的畫面,一及那些一輩子追尋離苦得樂的尋求者。不過這是一個經常受到誤解的名詞,並且常態性的與拓展自己狀態混淆,像是

 

eternal happiness,

a problem-free life,

ascension,

wisdom,

intelligence,

and in some cases we imagine awakening to do with a really bright smile.

永恆的幸福,

沒問題人生

揚升

智慧

聰明

在某些狀況下,我們還會幻想覺醒的時候臉上會帶著燦爛的微笑。

 

According to my experience, Awakening is none of these things. It is both -more and less than the highest ideal that you can imagine. It brings both -laughter and disappointment. It is the ultimate paradox, and even those who have experienced it often feel lost in trying to explain it.  Yet we talk about it, seek it, run from it, get frustrated by it, and somehow in this process it does seem to happen. It can happen to you. Eventually – if the philosophy of reincarnation is to be believed – it happens to everybody.

根據我的經驗,覺醒跟這些都無關,它可能比你帶著期待幻想的更多或更少,它會帶來歡笑及失望,這是一個極端自相矛盾的情況,就連經歷過的人在解釋狀況時也常常覺得困惑。不過我們依舊談論它、追尋它、逃避它、也為它感到挫折,不知為何在過程中這些都會發生,這些也會發生在你身上。如果輪迴的哲學是可信的,最終-這會發生在每個人身上。

 

So what is it, and how can you get a piece of the action? These are the questions that this talk will attempt to answer. But first I’m sure you’re wondering – who am I, and what is my experience in these matters?

那麼這是什麼?你又如何能從中分一杯羹呢?這就是我這次演講中會嘗試回答的問題,當然我相信你們現在應該在想—這個人是誰?以及我在這些事情上有什麼經驗?

 

To begin, I’ll tell you a bit about my history: I came into this human existence in december 1972. I was A born seeker, I craved knowledge and understanding, first of the physical world, then of the spiritual realm. I went to college in UK, and although I had been in love with technology my entire life, I was surprised to find myself bored by electronics engineering, so I left the program and finished my degree in Business management, with an unofficial emphasis in international marketing. After I graduated I did a one-year stint in the Insurance industry in UK, which was a great way to help people during their time of need, while also finding time for myself;f and asking myself regularly ‘what I was going to do with the rest of my life”?.

首先我來講一下我的歷史:我是1972年12月進入這個人類世界的,我是個天生的探索者,我渴望知識與理解,一開始是對物質世界,然後是靈性領域。我到英國就讀大學,雖然說我一輩子都熱愛科技,可是我意外的發現自己對電子工程感到厭倦,於是我選擇離開了這個科系並轉向商業管理繼續完成我的學位,副修國際行銷學。大學畢業後我在英國的保險公司實習了一年,這是協助需要幫助的人最好的方式,同時間我也會利用空檔定期詢問自己“這輩子我到底想做什麼?”

 

This question alone brought me back to India, and I worked on a number of small-time projects and entrepreneurial ventures, and continued to feed my hunger for esoteric knowledge of the universe’s inner workings. Today, I am fulfilling my vocation as a spiritual counselor and a healer.

這個問題將我帶回印度,我做過一些小型的專案及創業型企業,並繼續將關於宇宙內在運作的深奧知識的渴望填滿。今天我完成了成為一名靈性諮詢師及療癒師的使命。

 

I started this path by taking classes in spirituality from a master In north India. Having grown up in a religious family, this path was pure and simple spirituality – with its emphasis on observing nature and using those observations to alleviate human suffering – that proved to me that spirituality can actually make sense, and I wanted to learn what these practices had to teach me. Unfortunately, my teacher was much better at developing his own energy and vibrations than he was at letting go of his ego, so while I learned a lot about how subtle energies work in the human body, spiritually speaking my teacher could only demonstrate what not to do.

一開始踏上這條道路是從追隨一位北印度大師的靈性課程開始,在虔誠的家庭中長大的我,這條道路是非常純粹及單純的靈性- 他重視觀察自然,並利用觀察結果來減輕人們的痛苦- 這也向我證實了靈性實際上是有意義的,我想學習這些實踐能教會我什麼。很不幸的是我的老師在發展自身的能量及振頻強過放掉自身的小我,所以當我學習精微能量如何在人體內運作的同時發現我的老師在靈性層面上來說只能示範讓我們知道哪些不能做。

 

For my spiritual development, I was on my own – which was actually how I preferred it. I grew up with religion, so my spirituality emerged as a very personal endeavor and I never looked to a preacher for guidance. But I have found in my life experience that when you have a strong will then the universe provides us with all required resources that will take us forward. This is when I came across World spiritual university, one of the largest spiritual universities in the world with a very practical approach towards spirituality. I took their advanced course and the practices helped me to work on my issues in my own time. Starting from there, I typically spent a minimum of two hours each day in this process of self- inquiry, determined to release the roots of my being. All things considered, I’d say that I had a respectable degree of success, but it was a long, sweet but also sometimes torturous process.

在我的靈性成長道路上我自立自強- 其實我更喜歡如此。我在宗教的環境下長大,於是我的靈性屬於個人化的努力,我從來不向上師尋求協助。在我的人生經驗中我發現當一個人有堅強的意志的時候,宇宙就會提供我們必要的資源來引領我們向前走。於是我來到世界靈性大學,是全界最大的靈性大學之一,裡面有許多非常實用的靈性途徑。我上了他們的進階課程,其中的練習幫助了我在自己的時間內解決的我的問題。從此之後我每天都花至少兩個小時來探索自我,決心釋放我問題的根源。整體來說,我得到了相當程度的成功,雖然它是一個漫長、甜蜜,但同時折磨人的過程。

 

Soon thereafter, I came across a modality of energy healing called Sound frequency therapy. (“Sound frequency Therapy” is a form of healing that uses some form of subtle healing process, which is usually channeled through a practitioner and sounds). Although initially skeptical of something that sounded so “New Age,” but once I experienced it I was impressed by how thoroughly it changed my inner dialog, and removed my own inner blockages caused due to unresolved emotions and past life Karma. It was so thorough that this healing modality soon became the basis of my spiritual practice too. I got in at a good time, too, because the founders, who were all a team of Spiritual practitioners who were working with healers and scientists, had experienced what they called “Basic Awakening”. I took their courses too, and as time went on I developed a real talent for facilitating others’ Awakening also.

不久之後我遇到了一種療癒的方式,叫做音頻療法(“聲音頻率療法”是一種透過施作者與聲音的一個精微療癒方式)。雖然一開始我對這種聽起來如此“新時代”的東西抱持著懷疑的態度,但是在我體驗過後,我對於它徹底改變了我內在,並且移除我前世業力遺留的情緒所造成的內在卡點讓我感到非常驚豔。由於它非常的徹底,很快的它也成為我靈性練習的項目之一。我進入的時機也很好,因為創辦人們是與療癒師及科學家們一起工作的靈性從業人員,他們經歷了他們口中所謂的“基礎覺醒”,而我參加了他們的課程,隨著時間的堆疊,我也培養出了一個協助他人覺醒的真正天賦。

 

I met the founder of this Sound frequency therapy leader Dr Maheish late in 2014, and I was impressed by his intuition, insight, clarity, inner strength, and most of all his frequency. When ever I was with him, I could feel a strong vibrations emitting from him like we envision from a true master. When I asked him about it, he said – without pomp or arrogance – that he had Awakened, and although I was usually skeptical of this sort of thing, I felt comfortable in believing him. A month later, one of my fellow students Awakened in a class I was attending, and right then I knew that I had found my path to liberation. I was very excited about it! From what I had experienced so far, it seemed that to Awaken in relatively short order, all I needed was an intelligent application of the practices and a strong desire to break through the illusion;

我在2014年尾聲的時候遇見這位音療創辦人的Maheish博士,他的直覺、洞察力、清晰、內在的力量以及他的頻率給我留下了深刻的印象。當我和他在一起的時候,我能感覺到一種強烈的振動從他身上散發出來,就像我們想像一個真正的大師那樣。當我問他這件事的時候,他不帶著任何興奮的情感或是驕傲的語氣說,他已經覺醒了。雖然我通常對這種事情持有懷疑態度,但是相信他所說的讓我感到舒服。一個月後,我的一個同學在我正在上的一節課中覺醒,在那當下我知道我已經找到了通往解脫的道路。我對此感到非常興奮! 從我目前所經歷的來看,似乎要在相對較短的時間內覺醒過來,我所需要的只是智慧地應用這些練習,以及帶著想要打破幻覺的強烈慾望;

 

however, this turned out not to be the case. I was missing a key ingredient – surrender – which took me years to learn and truly embody. As a result of this drama, I suffered for quite some time in aching desperation for the one thing that continued to elude me.

然而事實並非如此,我缺少了一個非常關鍵的要素臣服 這個部分花費了我非常多年去學習及真正的體現。這整個戲劇化過程的結果就是,我在痛苦的絕望中煎熬了相當長的一段時間,因為我一直在逃避“那件事”。

 

 

All of that came to a head in 2016. I was in another class with Maheish, and he had everyone do an exercise in which we imagined that we were looking at ourselves in a mirror, and, looking deeply into our own eyes, we were to ask ourselves, “Who is this person?” As usual, I struggled and strained to “get it right,” because I was as determined as ever to Awaken now! At the end of the exercise, myself still as UN-Awake as ever, Maheish looked at me and said (with great emphasis at the end), “Sumit, you were in so much drama during this exercise, I just wanted to come up to you and say, ‘Give it up!’”

時間來到了2016年,我上了Maheish博士的另一堂課,他讓每個人做一個練習,讓我們想像自己在對著鏡子看自己,然後深深地看著自己的眼睛,我們問自己,“這個人是誰?”像往常一樣,我掙扎著要“把它做好”,因為我下定決心現在就要覺醒!在練習結束的時候,我還是像往常一樣沒有覺醒,Maheish博士看著我說(在練習結束後大大的強調),“蘇米特,你在練習的過程中充滿了戲劇性,我只想走到你面前跟你說,‘放棄吧! ‘”

 

In that moment, I felt a bit weird. Not unpleasantly so, just different in a way that I could barely describe as different. I felt confused. I was looking into Maheish eyes, feeling confused, and suddenly for no reason I started laughing. Everyone else in the class, observing this exchange, laughed as well. I knew they were laughing because they thought I had Awakened, but I didn’t feel Awake, so I just kept laughing. Eventually, I said something, and the whole class gasped – my voice sounded completely different! They heard what I sensed, which was that my voice was no longer “contained” somehow – not that I’d ever thought of my voice as being contained before! Yet the difference was more than obvious. Without knowing it, my entire life I’d always had the experience of my voice echoing back to me somehow, like I was walking around in a box that followed me wherever I went, and now that box was gone. Now, when my voice rang out, it just kept going out into emptiness. Something had shifted, and with that shift some sort of “container” on my physical voice had disappeared.

在那一刻,我覺得有點奇怪。並沒有感到不悅,只是以一種我幾乎無法用“不同”來形容的方式。我感到困惑。我看著Maheish博士的眼睛,感到困惑,然後突然無緣無故地笑了起來。班上的其他人看到這番景象,也都笑了。我知道他們在笑,因為他們以為我覺醒了,但我並沒有覺醒,我只是一直笑。最後,我說了些話,全班同學聽完都倒抽了一口冷氣- 我的聲音聽起來完全不一樣!他們聽到了我所感受到的,那就是我的聲音不知怎麼地不再是“抑制”了- 我以前從來沒有想過我的聲音是抑制的!然而,兩者之間的差異非常明顯。在不覺察的狀態下,我的整個人生似乎都有這樣的經驗:我的聲音不知何故都會在腦海中迴響,就像我走在一個盒子裡,無論我走到哪裡,這個盒子都會跟著我,而現在這個盒子不見了。現在,當我的聲音響起時,它就直接消失在虛無之中。某些種東西改變了,隨著這種變化,我聲音裡的某種“容器”消失了。

 

Of course, a change in one’s voice – no matter how odd or dramatic – isn’t really an indicator of Awakening. What I soon noticed that did seem to indicate an Awakening is that when I looked within to find myself, there was no one there anymore. For years, as a spiritual practice I looked for and observed my sense of “I,” which seemed to have a locus in the center of my chest. However, after my teacher said, “give it up!” whenever I looked I would only find emptiness – and laughter! Whereas for years it had seemed quite natural, now the very notion of looking for myself was entirely comical. Who would be looking, and how would that looking lead to “finding” one’s own self? As a result, rather than looking for myself, I learned simply to rest in Being, and to allow an inner knowing to replace all that seeking. Those simple words- “give it up”, just went so deep inside at the right time and i could feel letting go of all blockages that were holding me up for such a long time. Of course the sound therapy had already opened my energy centers allowing for outside help from my teacher to enter into me.

當然,一個人聲音的變化- 無論多麼奇怪或戲劇化- 並不是真正的覺醒的指標。我很快就注意到,並且也貌似是覺醒的指標是當我向內看嘗試尋找自我,那裏已經空無一人。過去這麼多年的靈性練習我都一直在尋找並觀察那個“我”,那個我在我心中一直保有個位置。然而自從老師說“放棄吧!”後,“每當我尋找時,我只會找到空無- 還有笑聲!這麼多年後,這似乎是很自然的事,但現在,一想到要尋找自我,就覺得這完全是滑稽可笑的。誰會去尋找,而這種尋找將如何導致“發現”自己? 結果,我學會了單純的存在而非尋找自我,讓內在的知曉取代所有的尋求。這麼簡單的幾個字- “放棄吧” ,在正確的時間進入了我的內心深處,我能感覺到放下所有阻礙我這麼長時間的障礙。當然,聲音療法已經打開了我的能量中心,允許來自外部老師的協助進入我的體內。

 

 

So that was my experience of Awakening. Far from being a big “Ah-ha!” or a  new understanding that my mind could take credit for, it was more like being the victim of an invisible pick-pocket who stole my most prized possession – all with my being completely unaware until it was too late to do anything about it (thank God!). It is for this reason that I know better than to take any credit for what happened. Whatever is Awake within me isn’t me – at least not the me that takes credit for things it had nothing to do with. Also, not only was I clearly not the agent of my own Awakening, but I can now see that “I” was actually the only thing that got in the way of its happening. As best I can understand it right now, that “invisible pick-pocket” was Grace and Grace alone, which used me and my teacher to create this movement because it was time for it to happen. Anything beyond that would be pure speculation.

這就是我覺醒的經歷,距離一個大大的“啊哈!”非常遙遠,也不是任何一種我大腦可以邀功的新知曉。反而像是被無形的扒手偷走我最珍貴的東西竟還一無所知也無法還手的被害者(感謝上帝!)也正因如此我很明白發生的這些事情並不歸功於我。在我之內的那個醒悟並不是我- 至少不是那個把與之無關事情歸功於自己的那個我。除此之外,我很清楚我的覺醒與我自己無關,甚至我才是那個阻礙它發生的人。目前我的最佳理解是那個“無形的扒手”是個恩典,就是個恩典,它利用我與老師來創造這個運作,因為時間到了,該讓它發生了。除此之外的任何多餘的想法就只是臆測而已了。

 

So that’s my story. All I can do is express myself and hope for the best. I appreciate your coming along for the ride.

以上是我的故事,我所能做的就是表達自己並且期待可以得到最佳的效果。我非常感謝大家的參與。
