修与金
Posted On 28/06/2010

在修行過程中常會遇到一個蠻有趣的現象,可以大家來探討看看。

遠的不說,就東方而言,大家常接觸的兩大宗教,佛與道而言,關於金錢方面,有蠻大的差異性,佛教可以光明正大的收錢,而且還收的理直氣壯,這就是"供養"。供養功德無量,可以成就未來的福報,未來必定成佛。這為什麼台灣四大名山都是佛教的原因之一,而且在短短的幾十年的時間經營下就可以有如此規模,與此也有很大的關連,也可以讚嘆台灣的經濟與宗教奇蹟吧。而其他新興宗教團體也常想用這一套佛陀的開示,自然而然會往佛教靠近,主要還是不離供養吧,所以很多新興團體,儘管已經完全不像佛教,也與佛教無關,但還是需要供養團體中的領導者,或許不得不然吧。

 

而在"供養"之上還有更重要的東西,往往被刻意忽略了,佛教只有出家人可以接受供養,而,而佛教出家最基本的要求就有十三重難與十六輕遮,但說是這樣說,在我們這裡,真正遵守這些的很少,反而常在新聞中看到父母跑到寺院來找子女的。除此之外還有很多戒律要遵守、勤修戒定慧,自利利他等等。還要六根清淨,看破紅塵,沒有子嗣、家族,孓然一身,與青燈古佛相伴,沒有恆產也沒有子孫可以傳承,把自己貢獻給佛教,希望自己能修行有所成就,並成就世人。

 

然而世人感佩出家人的決心與毅力,並且願意幫助他們有所成就,自然會供養出家人。但相況往往不是這樣子,很多人身穿袈裟就想只想接受供養,更多人只要看到袈裟就會供養,他們往往沒有想過,被供養的出家人是不是真正的出家,還是只是表象的身穿袈裟而已。所以我們是尊重身穿袈裟的人,但往往是身穿袈裟者自己本身就不尊重袈裟,所作所為不符合身穿袈裟的條件。

 

而如果修行人是想走道家路線,那恭喜你,選擇了一條辛苦的道路,因為道家祖師爺不像佛陀一樣,忘了要造福後人,當初忘了說要大家供養修道人,所以世人會供養佛教的出家師父,卻沒有人會去供養道士,這是很平常的一件事,也就是太平常了,很多人都忘了有這件事。所以道家比較偏向是"拿人錢財與人消災",所以才有種種道術的存在,而這些道術都是用來幫助世人的工具,也都不離開"道",這些從道延伸出來的道術,一方面對修道人的修行有所助益,另一方面則可以幫助世人,趨吉避凶,離苦得樂,所以道士會學習很多幫助世人的技能,以便自我謀生,而不像佛教的出家人可以在自己的地方等待供養,或是沿路托缽,道士是必須要有經濟收入,必須出外謀生。

 

道士不能接受供養,只能靠解決世人的問題來獲得經濟上的改善以維持生活,而這樣問題就來了,只要與金錢扯上關係,種種汙名就此誕生,如迷信、詐財、神棍等等,一輩子辛苦所學的法會、科儀、符祿,很容易就此被污名化,這也是為什麼很多修道者是"貧道"的原因。收太少沒辦法過日子,收太多又落人口實,更何況還有可以接受供養的佛教在旁邊搶生意呢,所以一般人對於道家的觀感不佳,除非有必要,常常是敬而遠之。只有出了事情沒辦法處裡才會想找道士處裡,而很少有人會有事沒事找道士聊天,更不用說開示了,儘管道家的思想早已紮根在我們日常生活中了,正所謂日用而不知吧,但大家還是喜歡找出家人來開示,這也是個蠻有趣的現象,什麼時候開始演變成如此的呢?

 

在道術運用上,最常見的就是命理師。當然也有很多名利雙收的修道者,或者是說命理師電視上就有一堆。這往往也牽扯到命理師所服務的對象而定。而一般命理師所服務的對象,大致上可以分成三類:

 

一、服務的對象皆是名流豪士、富貴名人等等。這些人大多本來就過的很好,本命的命格就很棒了,根本沒什麼大問題,自然會過的很好,所以他們想找命理師只是想聽好聽、奉承的話,必且提高自己的身價,可以到處炫耀自己認識很知名的命理師,算是互蒙其利吧。而這些有錢人往往是最不需要命理師的人,而這些命理師遇到這些有錢人,往往用上命理的機會很少,只要會說好聽話既可。

二、是一般社會大眾,也是一般命理師會遇到的對象,通常有些問題需要處裡,所以命理師需要依照自己的專業提供必要的幫忙,而不是像第一類有錢人,只要說對方想聽的話既可,有時候對方完全聽不下去時,但稱職的命理師還是需要把該說的話說完。但天助自助,很多人自己都不想幫助自己,本身又不像好命一樣有很好的前程,又只想聽好聽、想聽的話,只會害自己路越走越小,而失去找命理師的意義了。命理師也收必要的費用後,命理師自然須將自己的專業技能拿出來,就命理方面為當事者解惑才是,而當事者既然也出了錢,應當是信任命理師才是,當然對於命理師所言不是全盤接受,百依百順,但至少有相當的參考價值才是。

三、才是真正大師級的命理師會做、能做的。就像唐朝的風水大師"楊救貧"一樣,真正能利用風水改善世人的生活,解決貧窮人的痛苦,但這類的大師少之又少,完成拿本事出來說話,不需要說好聽的話來奉承,也不需要說一堆大道理來教訓別人,但這樣的命理師可遇不可求,這些人往往淡泊名利,雲遊四海,修道去耶,畢竟道術本來就是修道。最後還是會走上"道"。

命理師不只要有專業的技能,還要有相當的社會歷練,一般人用的上命理大概六成就足可以成為大師了,其餘的還是需要社會歷練與自我檢驗進化,畢竟經典都是死的,時代卻一直在進步,讀死書跟死讀書一樣,對於命理都是行不通的,師傅帶進門,修行在個人,前人講的是大原則,而要套在現在這社會,還是需要相當的慧根,不然用起來只有兩個字"不準",不是道術不能用,而是用的人沒有學通,不能善巧靈活的自我轉化。這也是命理師的一大分野。

 

話說回來,修道者與金錢之間的關係是相生而不是相剋,很多人有個誤解,認為修道是清高的,是寡欲的、是不理俗事的。而莫名的對於很多事務有了錯誤的看法。能沒有俗事纏身,志心於修道,那是好事一樁,能如此自然是最好。這在古代是可以這樣做的,輕便行李,找個深山修行,自給自足,不需要任何的金錢,就可以過的很好。所以在古代凡是名山仙洞都可以找到修行人的足跡。

 

但是在現代,這是不可能的,首先是每個人都要有身份證,證明自己不是偷渡客,而身分證上的照片與換證都是要錢的,再來是每個山頭不是私人的就是國家的,隨意進入佔有是犯法的。而健保與國民年金,是每個國民應盡的義務與責任,那是每個月都要繳的,等於現代人每天只要睜開眼就需要錢,者是很現實的問題,而不是跟政府說"我是修行人,我淡泊名利,專心求道,沒有任何金錢的收入,所以勞、健保與國民年金不需要繳納",政府就會跟你說,"那好,你專心修行,政府負責供養你一輩子",可能嗎?

 

所以修行還是需要金錢,如果不是家有恆產可以供應,那在修行之外,必須要有份收入,士農工商,該認真工作還是須要工作的,而不是假言修行最大,而連工作都不要了。一心只想修行就有人會供養,那是不可能的。

而如果學有專精,也有能力可以幫助別人,想要用這能力養活自己,這也無可厚非,事實上也是很多人這樣做,收費有高有低,而這情形就會有人開始說話的,收太高者不配當修行人,會說她們是在斂財、是神棍。但我們的看法不是如此。

 

修行與金錢是可以共存的,一個富裕的社會會比貧困的社會更富足,不論是生活上還是修行上,美有富裕的社會,連佛教的供養都有限,所以賺錢絕對不是罪惡,不論是不是用道術、通靈來謀生,或是有份正當的工作,還是從事買賣交易等等。不是只賺點蠅頭小利,或是不賺錢就是高尚,就是修行,這就是一大迷失。世界首富比爾蓋茲,也是世上有名的慈善家,他每年捐助的金額與幫助過的人,事一般人難以比較的,而這工作還非有錢不行,也就是說一般人沒錢想要向比爾一樣幫助很多人是不可能的。

 

而佛教有名的維摩詰居士、給孤獨長者等長供養僧團行善佈施。這些也都需要錢,而他們都有份事業,收入頗豐,也都修行的很好,這是一例。

 

努力工作賺錢,精進修行並不衝突,經濟的穩定會比為生活所苦,減少很多社會問題,賺錢絕對不是罪惡,錯誤的知見才是真正的麻煩,認為貧道才是修行者的本色,不僅害苦了自己,也增加社會負擔,連帶的一般人對於修行者的觀感也不佳,每個修行者過的都不好,過的都很苦,一簞食一瓢飲,居陋巷,又有多少人想跟顏回一樣呢?而這樣的修行者跟人家說修行有多好,又有多少人會相信而精進修行呢?

INDIGO AND CRYSTAL CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Posted On 26/06/2010

WHAT ARE INDIGO AND CRYSTAL CHILDREN AND ADULTS?
Spanish/Espanol

How do you know if you, or someone you know, is an Indigo or Crystal Child or Adult?

We will describe the main features and characteristics of these people. But we want to stress that the Indigo/Crystal phenomenon is the next step in our evolution as a human species. We are all, in some way, becoming more like the Indigo and Crystal people. They are here to show us the way, and so the information can be applied more generally to all of us as we make the transition to the next stage of our growth and evolution.

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and wayshowers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing abilities and degrees of technological and creative sophistication.

The Crystal Children began to appear on the planet from about 2000, although some date them slightly earlier. These are extremely powerful children, whose main purpose is to take us to the next level in our evolution, and reveal to us our inner power and divinity. They function as a group consciousness rather than as individuals, and they live by the” Law of One” or Unity Consciousness. They are a powerful force for love and peace on the planet.

The Indigo and Crystal Adults are composed of two groups. Firstly, there are those who were born as Indigos and are now making the transition to Crystal. This means they undergo a spiritual and physical transformation that awakens their “Christ” or “Crystal” consciousness and links them with the Crystal children as part of the evolutionary wave of change. The second group is those who were born without these qualities, but have aquired or are in the process of aquiring them through their own hard work and the diligent following of a spiritual path. Yes, this means that all of us have the potential to be part of the emerging group of “human angels”.

The following extract describes the difference between Indigo and Crystal Children. It is from Doreen Virtue’s article Indigo and Crystal Children:

The first thing most people notice about Crystal Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years. Their eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for the child to see. Perhaps you’ve noticed this special new “breed” of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful and forgiving. This generation of new lightworkers, roughly ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed … and its a good direction!

The older children (approximately age 7 through 25), called “indigo Children”, share some characteristics with the Crystal Children. Both generations are highly sensitive and psychic, and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament. Indigos have a warrior spirit, because their collective purpose is to mash down old systems that no longer serve us. They are here to quash government, educational, and legal systems that lack integrity. To accomplish this end, they need tempers and fiery determination.

Those adults who resist change and who value conformity may misunderstand the Indigos. They are often mislabeled with psychiatric diagnoses of Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Sadly, when they are medicated, the Indigos often lose their beautiful sensitivity, spiritual gifts and warrior energy……….In contrast, the Crystal Children are blissful and even-tempered. Sure, they may have tantrums occasionally, but these children are largely forgiving and easy-going. The Crystals are the generation who benefit from the Indigos trailblazing. First, the Indigo Children lead with a machete, cutting down anything that lacks integrity. Then the Crystal Children follow the cleared path, into a safer and more secure world.

The terms “Indigo” and “Crystal” were given to these two generations because they most accurately describe their aura colours and energy patterns. Indigo children have a lot of indigo blue in their auras. This is the colour of the “third eye chakra”, which is the energy center inside the head located between the two eyebrows. This chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions, and spirits. Many of the Indigo children are clairvoyant

The Crystal Children have opalescent auras, with beautiful multi-colours in pastel hues. This generation also shows a fascination for crystals and rocks……

Indigo Children can sense dishonesty, like a dog can sense fear. Indigos know when they’re being lied to, patronized, or manipulated. And since their collective purpose is to usher us into a new world of integrity, the Indigos inner lie-detectors are integral. As mentioned before, this warrior spirit is threatening to some adults. And the Indigos are unable to conform to dysfunctional situations at home, work, or school. They don’t have the ability to dissociate from their feelings and pretend like everything’s okay …unless they are medicated or sedated.

Crystal Children’s innate spiritual gifts are also misunderstood. Specifically, their telepathic abilities which lead them to talk later in life.

In the new world which the Indigos are ushering in, we will all be much more aware of our intuitive thoughts and feelings. We won’t rely so much upon the spoken or written word. Communication will be faster, more direct, and more honest, because it will be mind to mind. Already, increasing numbers of us are getting in touch with our psychic abilities. Our interest in the paranormal is at an all-time high, accompanied by books, television shows, and movies on the topic.

So, it’s not surprising that the generation following the Indigos are incredibly telepathic. Many of the Crystal Children have delayed speech patterns, and its not uncommon for them to wait until they’re 3 or 4 years old to begin speaking. But parents tell me they have no trouble communicating with their silent children. Far from it! The parents engage in mind-to-mind communication with their Crystal Children. And the Crystals use a combination of telepathy, self-fashioned sign language, and sounds (including song) to get their point across.

The trouble comes about when the Crystals are judged by medical and educational personnel as having “abnormal” speaking patterns. It’s no coincidence that as the number of Crystals are born, that the number of diagnoses for autism is at a record high.

It’s true that the Crystal Children are different from other generations. But why do we need to pathologize these differences? If the children are successfully communicating at home, and the parents are’nt reporting any problems… then why try to make a problem? The diagnostic criteria for autism is quite clear. It states that the autistic person lives in his or her own world, and is disconnected from other people. The autistic person doesn’t talk because of an indifference to communicating with others.

Crystal Children are quite the opposite. They are among the most connected, communicative, caring and cuddly of any generation. They are also quite philosophical and spiritually gifted. And they display an unprecedented level of kindness and sensitivity to this world. Crystal Children spontaneously hug and care for people in need. An autistic person wouldn’t do that!

These children are worthy of awe, not labels of dysfunction. If anyone is dysfunctional, it’s the systems that aren’t accommodating the continuing evolution of the human species. If we shame the children with labels, or medicate them into submission, we will have undermined a heaven-sent gift. We will crush a civilization before its had time to take roots. Fortunately, there are many positive solutions and alternatives. And the same heaven that sent us the Crystal Children can assist those of us who are advocates for the children………

The following is an extract from Celia’s forthcoming book,”The Indigo-Crystal Adventure”. which explains more about the metaphysical aspects of the Indigo-Crystal experience.

CHAPTER FIVE

GOLDEN AURAS, HUMAN ANGELS AND MULTI-DIMENSIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS

The Indigo and Crystal children that come to the planet are known as “starchildren”. Often this is because their souls are more at home in the stars, and they have not incarnated on Earth before. They come at this time as a “special assignment” team to assist Earth and her inhabitants with their transition and rebirth as a higher dimensional “New Earth”.

But while these beings appear like ordinary human beings, they do in fact have access to a greater range of human potential. They are more open to who they are, closer to a recognition of their divine origins and essence.

Indigo children are born onto the Indigo Soul Ray of Incarnation and Evolution. This means they have access to the gifts of clairvoyance and healing. They are also able to access what may be termed the Fourth and Fifth Dimensions of Consciousness, while most humans have access only to the Third and Fourth. This Higher Dimensional access, together with the Indigo Ray soul gifts, means that Indigos are naturally more intelligent, more sensitive and more clairvoyant. They are also creative, and often able to access the left and right brains with ease, making them artistically gifted, but also technologically competent and adventurous.

The Crystal children, on the other hand, are mostly born into the Gold Ray of Incarnation and Evolution. They are born on the Sixth Dimension of Consciousness, with the potential to open up rapidly to the Ninth Dimensional level of Full Christ Consciousness, and then from there to the Thirteenth Dimension which represents Universal Consciousness.

With these gifts and abilities, Crystal beings are immensely powerful and creative. Many of them carry the Gold and Magenta Rays, which makes them masters of creation, especially with light and sound. This manifests as artistic and musical creativity on the Earth plane. Those who carry the Indigo-Silver Ray, are also gifted as the “mothers” and “goddesses” of the planet, and carry the feminine vibration of healing and nurturing. Those on the Red-Gold Ray, on the other hand, carry the masculine vibration of manifestation and are often the leaders in the more active sense.

The Future Crystal child will be known as a “Rainbow Crystal” being. This is the fully developed Thirteen Dimensional Universal Human Being, able to carry and transmit all the Rays of Incarnation and Evolution within their vibrational field. There are Rainbow Crystal beings already on planet Earth, but they are yet to open into their full potential.

The exciting thing about these evolutionary developments, for ordinary people, is that the Indigo and Crystal beings bring these vibrations to the planet in order to share them with others. By their very presence, they assist others to move into these new vibrations and open up to their full potential as well. The Indigo-crystal gift to the planet is the gift of Evolution and access to our full potential, for every human being on the planet today, if they so choose.

At this point, many people who are allowing this shift or transition within their own auric fields, have moved from their original Third Dimensional state of awareness into the Indigo and then the Crystal states, with the assistance of the children who hold the vibration. These adults are now able to hold the Gold Ray of Evolution in their Eighth chakras, and are helping to create a matrix for the creation of the New Earth. This pulsating Gold light can be clearly seen in their auras by those with clairvoyance and the ability to perceive auric colours.

The Human Angel

One of the gifts of this transitional process, is that Humans are becoming aware of who they truly are: that they are Spirits in Human bodies, and that they are, in other words, Angels in human form.

We have been aware of our connections to the higher realms for many thousands of years, but have always felt that out “human” and material state somehow “shut” us off from our angelic inheritance. We would speak about our “Higher Self”, knowing that we had access to this aspect of ourselves, but somehow it was not quite a part of who we were, and could only be accessed in meditation.

Part of the reason for this was that our physical forms were locked into the Third Dimension, but our Higher or Angelic self was of a much finer and higher vibration and was more at home in the Higher Dimensions. So there was always a “gap” between the material manifestation of the human body and consciousness and the spiritual reality.

Now, however, with the vibrational shift that the planet is experiencing, which is aptly called “Ascension”, the Earth and her inhabitants have the opportunity to “ascend” from the Third Dimension of consciousness upwards into the Higher Dimensions. As the consciousness ascends higher, the spiritual world comes closer, until there is no longer a “gap” but a continuum that is termed “Multi-Dimensional Consciousness”.

In this state, the human being is able to access both the material and spiritual realms with ease. There is no longer any need for intense meditation, since the access to the spirit realm is immediate and evident. People in the Multi-Dimensional state have accessed their Angelic presence or state, and recognise themselves as Spirit beings or Angels who also have a human body and are able to function in the material plane as material beings.

At this point, the Higher Self and the Lower self can be said to have blended, and the Human being is now a Human Angel.

The Human Angel is constantly aware of themselves as Angelic and as Powerful and Creative. They have no time or need for things such as fear and victim dramas. Their time is better spent in creating the kind of reality in which they would be happy and content.

Many Indigo and crystal children are already almost at this point of awareness, if not fully within it. As are many of the Indigo-Crystal adults who have made the transition to this state. It is these new beings, able to claim both their human and angelic inheritances, who will create the New Earth.

It is important to state, at this point, that it is imperative that those who make the transition into awareness of their angelic selves, be also aware of how important it is to be human and to be well grounded in the material dimensions or planes. The whole point of the Transition is to bring “Heaven” to “Earth”, and not to drift away into some ungrounded paradise state.

For Human Angels there is work to do. Creating a New Earth that will bring Heaven to Earth. And since “heaven” is not so much a place as a state of consciousness, these Human Angels must work to bring the higher dimensional states of consciousness to the Earth plane. Once this is achieved, then a planetary culture will be birthed that will respect all beings as manifestations of the Divine Essence. And this culture will reflect that respect in its peace, harmony and creativity.

The Nature of Multi-Dimensionality

Until fairly recently, all humans born on Earth were born as Third Dimensional beings. This means that they were fully in the material plane or realm, and their consciousness was “locked” into the Third Dimension. They functioned on the first three chakras, the material, the emotional and the mental. Where there was spirituality, it was usually seen as something outside or other than normal every day functioning.

The Third Dimensional being is aware of him or herself as a separate and unique individual. There is no real sense of the unity or oneness of consciousness that is a factor of higher dimensional consciousness. Because of this sense of separation, humans have built a society that has very little awareness of the interconnectedness of beings and actions. And because of this lack of awareness, humans have created a planet of sorrow and suffering, where individuals see no need to be responsible for their thoughts, feelings and actions. Fear of not surviving on the individual level, because of lack of resources, has led to greed and imbalances that need to be addressed in order to create a stable planetary home for all humans.

The Indigo children arrived with the key to multi-dimensionality. They were born into Third Dimensional bodies, but their consciousness was effectively in the Fourth Dimension and capable of moving into the Fifth. When this “wave” of Indigo consciousness arrived on the planet in the early 1970s, the way was opened for all humans and the planet itself to shift into the Fourth Dimension.

At the Fourth Dimensional level of Consciousness, humans become aware of the Universal Law of One, otherwise known as “Unity Consciousness”. This Law states that we are all One, we are all connected and that whatever affects one of us affects all of us. Indigo children carry this awareness in their consciousness, and it leads them to be warriors for many causes that will heal the Earth and stop humans from destroying and polluting their environment and harming other humans.

The Law of One also fosters the understanding in Indigo beings that we are all equal, and that no one is greater than any other. This group consciousness and group awareness is the path to the future for humans. We will learn to function co-operatively and for the good of all if we are to create the New Earth that we desire.

Indigos respect the talents and abilities of each individual, but these talents do not make any one greater than anyone else. The play of ego and self-importance has no real place in the life of an Indigo.

When an Indigo awareness opens into the Fifth Dimension, it becomes aware of itself as a Creator. Fifth Dimensional awareness loves to create. All the religious belief systems and the economic systems on Earth today are Fifth Dimensional Though Form creations that we hold in place by our continued support of these thought forms. They form a Fifth Dimensional grid around the Earth. Most lower- dimensional beings are completely unaware that their thoughts and behaviour patterns are being controlled from this level.

When the Indigo awareness opens to this level, there is often a rejection of all belief systems and a consciousness of the freedom to create new and alternative ways of thinking and being. The Indigo person takes on the planetary mission of creating and bringing in new ways of thinking and being for Planet Earth. But, at this level the consciousness is still concerned with dualities of “good” and “bad”, that determine what kind of system is best for Earth. The next step in consciousness is to move beyond duality and into a realm where all is seen as part of the greater good and for the good of the greater whole.

This advanced state is known as Sixth Dimensional Consciousness, and is the realm of the Christed Child or Magical Child. All Crystal children are born into this level of awareness. They have immediate access to the magical and spiritual aspects of who they are, and are able to blend imagination and creation in fantastic and joyous ways. If they were left to their own devices, they would immediately create a magical planet. But, they still have to deal with a largely Third Dimensional consciousness, and they struggle with the patterns and behaviours that they find here.

When an adult Indigo consciousness makes the shift into the Crystal state or awareness, they enter into Sixth Dimensional awareness and the Christ Consciousness seed. They are rebirthed, in consciousness, as a Christed or Magical child. With this comes an awareness of the playfulness of life, and the play of Spirit through human beings on this planet. Then all life is seen as magical and blessed, and all life is directed and advanced through the work of spirit. At this point, the being understands the principle of surrender to the flow of the greater evolutionary wave, while still exercising the right to be a creator on the individual level.

The Crystal consciousness, when it has matured enough at this level, can then move into the Seventh Dimensional level, where awareness opens onto the nature of the spiritual mission of the being. A Crystal or Christed adult at this level is ready to take on a planetary mission as a carrier of higher dimensional consciousness to others. The work may involve teaching and healing on a grand scale, or it may simply be to carry the energy in the auric field so that others may access the higher vibrations in their own upwards ascension path.

The Crystal child and adult now carry the potential to open fully to the Ninth level or Full Christ Consciousness. This incorporates the Eighth level, or Archetypal level, where the being has full control over the “story” of their life on earth, and the Ninth level, where the being assumes full responsibility for stewardship of the Planet.

The potential then exists for the being to continue on the journey to the Tenth level, where the being accesses his or her Solar System responsibilities; the Eleventh level, where the Galactic level of consciousness is accessed and finally the Twelfth level, where the Gold Ray of Universal Consciousness inaugurates the being as a Full Universal Being. The Thirteenth level represents the Master, who enters into the Divine Mystery as a fully conscious spark of the Divine Creative Essence.

An Evolutionary Leap

As can be seen from the above discussion, the Indigo-Crystal adventure represents a huge evolutionary leap for the human species. This is initially a huge leap in consciousness, reflected in the auric colours and the access to multi-dimensional layers of awareness in an individual.

But, what is manifest in the subtle or spiritual bodies must eventually make itself manifest in the physical or Earth plane body of each individual. And eventually, in the physical body of the Planet itself. Indigo and Crystal children and adults are an integral and dynamic part of the evolutionary leap into a new and Golden future.

Higher levels of consciousness, awareness of the interconnectedness of all things and a desire for an empowered and creative life will soon become the characteristics of all humans on Planet Earth.

四禪天的境界
Posted On 22/06/2010

參禪參到忘人無我的境界,便到初禪「離生喜樂地」。在這階段,破了眾生的執著,而得到禪悅為食,法喜充滿的受用。在此定的境界上,呼吸停止,無呼無吸,不出不入,有一種特別的快樂。這種快樂,是妙不可言的。總之,這是一般人得不到的快樂。

二禪是「定生喜樂地」。在定中得到最大的歡喜。坐在那裏,不飲不食。脈搏也停止,等於死人一樣,可是還有意念,知道自己在靜坐。

三禪是「離喜妙樂地」。在定中離開禪悅為食,法喜充滿這種的歡喜,而得一種妙樂。這種妙樂,無法可形容出來,是微妙不可思議的。在此境界,把念頭也止住了,沒有意念。所謂「一念不生全體現,六根忽動被雲遮。」

四禪是「捨念清淨地」。意念不但止住,而且也捨了。這時候,得到非常清淨、非常微妙的快樂。四禪的境界,還是凡夫的地位,尚未證果,不要以為了不起,此境界離證果尚有一段距離,應該努力去參,再接再厲去參,進一步才到「五不還天」的境界,那才是入聖人法性流。

有個無聞比丘,他參到四禪的境界,誤認為證了果位,所以到處宣傳,自己證了果。因為他對佛法不徹底了解的緣故,所以打妄語,最後墮於無間地獄。

道&德
Posted On 22/06/2010

學習佛法的人,就是在這兒開始把種子種到地下去。種子種下後,能不能生出?還要看各種的緣。諸緣具足了,種子就能順利的生出。假若各方面助緣不圓滿,就有可能變成焦芽敗種。也就是看當我們發菩提心時、種菩提種子時,種得夠不夠深?堅固不堅固?

若是種得夠深而且堅固結實,那麼將來種子一定會生根發芽,可是要想結菩提果,還有一段相當的時間,這就要看你用功用得如何。要是用功上路,開悟證果,成就覺道,這才算是收成。種子生根發芽、抽葉、開花、結果的過程中,都必須經過相當的時間,培養、灌溉、加肥料。肥料是什麼?就是學佛的道德。修行要處處本著道德,以不妨礙道德為根本戒條。

儒教云:「德者,本也;財者,末也。」德行是人的根本,而財僅是一種末梢之物。修道人處處要惜福節約,不浪費金錢物質,如此日積月累,才能培養出自己的德行,所生出來的枝葉才會茂盛,果實也將累累。如果不加肥料,不用功去培養灌溉,枝芽花果很容易就會枯槁而死,所以修道人,第一戒條就是「注重德行」。

德行先由小處做起。「毋以善小而不為」,你不要以為小善就不去做,而等著做大善,大善沒有那麼多。「山」是一粒一粒微塵積成的,微塵雖小,但積多了也會變成一座山。德行雖小,但積多了,也會變成一座德行山。不違背道德就是德行,不妨礙他人就是德行。無論做什麼,要幫助他人為本份。若於利益上、時間上、文化智慧上,或其他種種事情上,對他人有所妨礙,不能利益他人,都是於道德有所違背。所以我們的一舉一動、一言一行,總以不違背道德為根本箴規。想要修道,先要培德;沒有德行,就不能修道。有人想修道,魔障就來找,這因為沒有德行的緣故,所以說:「德者本也,財者末也。」

道德就等於日月,也等於天地,也等於人之性命。沒有道德就等於沒有性命,沒有日月天地一樣。什麼是道德呢?就是以利益他人為主,以不妨礙他人為宗旨,也就是內心充滿「仁、義、禮、智、信」。

(一)仁:有仁愛的心,就不會殺生。
(二)義:具足一種知識,做什麼事都恰到好處,恰到中道,不太過也不會不及,不偏左也不偏右,事事合乎中道。懂「義」,就不會偷盜。講義氣的人不會偷他人的東西。
(三)禮:禮是一種禮貌、禮節。尚禮節就不會姦淫。偷盜與淫亂都是因為不合乎義禮,違背常規的現象。
(四)智:有智慧的人就不會亂喝酒、亂吃迷魂藥。愚癡的人才會做出種種顛倒事。
(五)信:有信用就不會打妄語。

仁、義、禮、智、信,五常充足圓滿了,這就是道,就是德。所以道德是從心中生出,它的根本就在我們人之心裏頭,但生出來有種顏色。這種顏色不是青、黃、赤、白、黑,而是一種德行之表現,是德行之光澤,故韓愈在〈原道〉文中,有一段說著:

博愛之謂仁,仁而宜之之謂義,由是而之焉之謂道,足乎己無待於外之謂德。

而孟子說:

仁義禮智根於心,其生色也,睟然見於面,盎於背,施於四體,四體不言而喻。

有德之人不單單面上有所表現,其背上也洋溢著德光,甚至於在四肢上也能顯現出來。這種德相雖然描述不出來,但人人皆能明白。德行的表現,才是真正的功夫學問,這種德行不能假裝的,虛假只會暫時騙人一陣子,不能長久。

修道就是要修真正道德,不妨礙他人,也不怕被他人妨礙自己。誰妨礙自己都接受,逆來順受;誰對自己不慈悲,或不講道理,都是自己的善知識。能「逆來順受」,對橫逆能處之泰然,才見出你忍辱的功夫,不要讓別人一句話就動了。有些人的「不動」是無慚無愧,這是不對。你要修的「不動」,是能忍人所不能忍,這才是真功夫,否則,還須從頭練起。

道家以「三花聚頂」、「五氣朝元」,為道德圓滿之表現。這兩個名詞在某些佛教徒聽起來,說是外道。其實什麼叫外道?什麼叫內道?這個名詞並沒有什麼外內道,這是用來形容某種修行所成就的結果。「三花」就是精、氣、神,三者都變成一種光華。「五氣」:仁、義、禮、智、信,五氣都圓滿,叫五氣朝元。

在佛教裏,道德圓滿了,就獲得大圓鏡智、平等性智、妙觀察智、成所作智,也就是三身、四智、五眼、六通,缺少一樣,也無法得到這種境界。所以佛教萬德莊嚴,它能包羅一切宗教,而一切宗教只是佛教的一部分。所以我常將佛教比喻為大學課程,道教或其他高超一點的宗教可以算為中學,世間宗教如儒教等,只是小學過程。

在小學、中學、大學,都是讀書人;世界各宗教,也都是宗教人士,所以不可以分門別類,到這教就說這教好,到那教就說這教不好,「入者奴之,出者污之。」這是錯誤的觀念。一切宗教都是佛教的一部分,這看法才是對的。因為佛說:「一切眾生皆有如來智慧德相,皆堪作佛。」一切眾生皆有佛性,那麼外道也是眾生之一,也有成佛的機會,為什麼要摒彼於門外呢?佛教是盡虛空遍法界,無有邊際、無門戶、人我之見。所以我們學佛人的心量要大起來,不要心胸狹窄、小氣。

道教裏有德行人,有一種表現,一般凡人都看得出,就是鶴髮童顏。頭髮雖然花白,但其面色有如童子,很潤很細。為什麼?就是一種道德感召的變化。雖然是白髮,但頭髮並不乾枯,而且有光潤之氣(並不是擦髮臘),他的毫毛、頭髮會放光,若有功夫的人,或開五眼的人,一看就知道。

佛教又高一招,不單頭髮放光,而是全身都可以放光,每一根汗毛梢上都可以放光,每一毛孔都與眾不同。在佛教裏修行有功夫的人,能使白髮轉黑,齒落重生。道教也有齒落重生的境界,不過不能全身毛孔放光,這是不同處。你們各位看人是不是一位善知識?不需開五眼,就憑凡夫肉眼,只要你是個行家,就可以看出他是否善知識?是否有德行?人若無德行,是面生橫肉,非常討人厭的!

法眼
Posted On 22/06/2010

學佛法的人必須要有擇法眼,認識是與非法,黑與白法,善與惡法。切記不要以是為非,以非為是,或將黑作白,拿白當黑,或以善為惡,以惡為善,這都是顛倒。想認識這些法,一定要有擇法眼。首先要無我相,若有我相,就生種種障礙,而無智慧。有了我相,就先生自私心。跟著就陸續生出自利心、有所求心、貪心。若又求不到也貪不到,就生鬥爭心,與人爭強論勝。

如果能沒有「我相」,則什麼叫「我」?誰是我?我又是誰?想一想,參一參「念佛是誰?」這「念佛是誰?」不是念的,你念來念去是沒有用,而是要參,參如同用錐子錐一個東西,錐出窟窿了才算透,徹悟明白。「一時不明白,一時都要參;時時不明白,時時都要參。」參也不是猜測的,你若猜「我念佛,你念佛,他念佛,誰念佛呢?」猜來猜去是猜不著的,而是要找這個「誰…?」這個誰字就是金剛王寶劍,就是智慧劍。要用智慧劍把其他妄想全斬斷了,智慧自然現前。

參禪這法門你若不認識,不明白,而像念佛號似的,以為念得越多越好,這是錯誤。不需要念得多,最好能拉長長聲,念幾個鐘頭也念不完,甚至參八萬大劫也不間斷,這才是真正參禪。為什麼要參「念佛是誰?」這「誰」字本來也是多餘,但因為我們人就像猴子,總要找事做,找東找西。若有個誰字擋著,那些妄想也就沒有了,這是以毒攻毒的法門,沒有妄想才是「時時勤拂拭」,參禪就是勤拂拭。為什麼要勤拂拭?「勿使惹塵埃」,這是「掃一切法,離一切相」的法門。

若是沒有擇法眼,不認識真法,就不會參,不會參就是白費功夫,若不認識正法,就會跟邪法跑,所以擇法眼是最重要的。

地基沒打好,房子必不堅固,風一吹就倒,雨一沖就散。
Posted On 22/06/2010

學佛的人,有人歡喜參禪,有人歡喜學教講經說法,有人歡喜研究律宗,有人歡喜密宗,有人歡喜淨土宗。無論歡喜那一宗,你都要專心致志,用功修行,才能達到目的,成就自己的希望。若不專心致志,學什麼也等於沒有學一樣。參了二天半禪,就想去念佛;念佛念了半天,又想去學律;學律不久又想學密。常把自己的目標弄亂,而不能專一。為什麼不能專一?就因為向外馳求,腳踏兩條船,不知到江北好?或江南好?這樣就會自誤一生。

所以參禪就要時時刻刻精進,一分一秒也不躲懶偷安。參到「山窮水盡疑無路,柳暗花明又一村。」就別有洞天,別有一種天然妙趣。但必定要參到極點,到登峰造極,然後才有一點點希望,但並不多。雖有一點點的希望,也不要抱著希望,否則又變成頭上安頭。

參禪,就是要老實用功。首先,要把腿練得聽話,不搗亂也不痛,怎麼腿會不痛?是否有個咒可以念一念,腿就不痛了?或者吃個什麼藥令它不痛?不是的。必須要經過這個痛,然後它才聽話不痛。你要是忍不住,一痛你就要換腿,休息一下,那麼腿永遠不會聽話,因你已慣壞它。它一痛,你就哄它,如哄小孩子似的。小孩知道父母怎樣也捨不得他受苦,將來他就什麼苦也不能受。腿也像小孩子一樣,你若怕它痛,它什麼時候都會痛,痛時也要痛,你不想痛時也要痛,就都因為慣壞了它。

把腿練得聽話,把腰也練得聽話,不痠也不痛。眼、耳、鼻、舌、身、意也都聽話,六根不向外馳求,不被色、身、香、味、觸、法所轉,皆不為六根六塵所轉,而能轉回來,這就是聽話。所謂「眼觀形色內無有,耳聽塵事心不知。」常常迴光返照,不向外馳求,總是抓住自己的根本法門:「念佛是誰?」抓住根本,即「但得本,莫愁末」,對於枝末的問題,也不用再憂愁了,一點一點都會明白。

你修參禪法門,不要連坐都還未練好,也不能結雙跏趺坐,連單跏趺坐都結不起來,就想學怎樣參,又如何如何?你的基礎都未打好呢!

參禪要先打地基。第一個禮拜,就是在整地。造房子先要整一整地,等到地差不多平了。第二個禮拜就可打樁。打樁須費一番功夫,就是修忍,忍痛、忍餓、忍飢、忍寒,什麼都要忍,這是很費力的,雖然費力,但這是必經之路。必須把地基打好,立好樁,否則造出的房子必不堅固,風一吹就倒,雨一沖也就散了,這都是因樁未打好,基礎沒建立好之緣故。第三個禮拜才把樑、棟、柱腳石等都安好,把所有的柱子都豎建。第四個禮拜就可以造牆、裝門、安窗戶、蓋上屋脊。所以一點一點的造起,不是「一鍬就挖個井」,不是一下就可以成功的。

參禪如此,念佛是如此,學教、修密、習律也是如此,都要念茲在茲,把心弄老實,不叫它好高騖遠,不要聽人說密宗好啊!就跑到密宗。我們人不要迷得死不開竅,食古不化。明明眼前都擺著事實,還迷頭迷腦的密密密,密來密去也不知怎麼就死了,這真是密!這不是「密」,是「迷」--糊里糊塗!

各位信佛的人,要研究真理,不要盲從。要「親近有德,遠避凶人」,凶人就是專門欺騙人;有德之人即是不欺騙人。無德的人專用奸詐手段,所以德存不住;唯獨不欺騙人者,才能日積月累的修功立德,故其德行存在。所以你們觀察人就是從這兒著眼。不是單單在表面上看,說:「我看這人有德,是善知識。」根本沒有確實的標尺。你必須要設身處地,真正了解那人才算。末法的人都犯了一種通病,就是好高騖遠,以耳代目,聽人家說什麼好,就往那兒跑。跑到那兒,好不好也不知道,甚至被人騙了還不醒覺。學這種迷信財色,迷信風水,非常可憐。

今天從報紙上轉載大陸福建某地,有六個小孩子集體跳海自殺去成仙。這為什麼呢?就因為邪說把人迷住了,說人做壞事就要作鬼,做好事成神仙。什麼叫好事?就是不怕死。在鄉下地方,小孩子天真純樸,聽了什麼也就容易入腦。說好人不怕死,死了會成仙,所以這六個小孩就要集體自殺成仙去--「以前有八仙,大概是集體自殺的,我們現在也要集體自殺成六仙,免去六道輪迴」,所以他們一齊自殺想成仙。

他們成不成仙呢?我可以證明沒有。為什麼不成仙?因為他們太迷了。成仙的人都很聰明的,沒有這樣的愚癡,不懂真理,是非不辨。這樣怎麼會一起死去就會成仙呢?成仙若是這麼容易,那麼大家不快死算了,都會成仙?真是無有是處。這種鄉愚太可憐了,盲從迷信邪說,令小孩子都失去了方向,這是很可憐的一件事。

話又說回來,為什麼小孩子寧可死也不怕,而說要去成仙呢?這也可說是環境壓迫而成,覺得人活著還不如死,做人如行屍走肉沒什麼意思,於是找個大解脫,一起去死。小孩子在他們的筆記簿上,寫「死」字寫了一千多個,天天死死死,一天到晚念死。這些童男童女無知,受迷信之蠱惑,而失去真正的目標和方向。

所以我們信佛的人,不應該迷信,要破除迷信。什麼是迷信?就是糊里糊塗地亂信,別人說什麼就信,信迷了。「迷信」還不打緊,最怕是「信迷」,信那迷亂顛倒的外道。有人自作聰明,真的他不信,假的他反而去信,這就是「迷中之迷」,不認識真理,拿真當假,把假當真。好像這六個小孩,本來「找死成仙」是一種虛假騙人的方法,而他們卻相信。若是叫他們要修行才能成仙,恐怕他們就不相信了。所以世界上可憐的人很多,可憐的事也很多,一言難盡!

光音天
Posted On 22/06/2010

問:佛教裏說:「人的始祖,是從光音天來的。」這與現代科學理論,有沒有牴觸?譬如,科學裏有「進化論」,說人是從最原始微生狀態,若干億兆的逐步進化演進,最後從猿猴變為人。這個在佛理上講得通嗎?

答:人是從光音天來的,這個來源不只七億兆年,恐怕七億億兆年以前就有這種情形。

光音天的天人來到人間,並非怎麼完整,而是已失去智慧。為什麼?就等於我們人投胎另去托生一樣。當初這世界沒有人類,未開化,混沌一片,如雞蛋似的。天人好像蒼蠅飛到這世界來,以為有什麼好吃。從光音天到地球來,恐怕也要經過很長的時間才能到達。好像現在的衛星火箭打入太空軌道,要經過人間很久時間,或幾年才能入軌道。

同理,天人到地球來,他們本沒有什麼目的地,各處旅行,把指南針丟了,到了地球就手忙腳亂。他們到了地球也不像以往在天上那麼聰明,僅存一種知覺性,沒有像在天上那麼完整。好像人本來很聰明,但死了再托生做小孩,把前生事忘了。就好像人撞車後,失去所有知覺,迷糊混淆。雖然說他們從光音天來,但是逐漸都失去本有的德性與智慧,只有一點點知覺性存在。雖說從天上來,也來得很少,沒有人知道他們究竟來了多少,時間也無人可以考查。既無歷史可查,也沒有什麼根據。

至於所謂的「科學」,並不是什麼科學,這是人取的一種代名詞,叫它為「科學」。其實它只是一種理論、理性。這種道理圓滿或不圓滿?就要憑各人的見地和理解力。有些人懂得多點。有些人沒學過科學,就不懂科學。那麼是不是沒學過科學的人,在他自性中就沒有這種理性?不是的。不論你有沒有學過科學,在自性裏這個理性仍然存在。不能說學過科學,就有科學;沒有學過科學,就沒有科學。這就像佛性一樣,人人自性中皆有。

科學,只是佛性的一小部分,並不是一個很完整的理性。說人研究科學如何如何,寫出的理論又如何如何,其實這只是個人的顛倒執著,頭上安頭,故意無事找事忙,忙來忙去也找不出一個所以然來;研究科學,研來研去也研究不出什麼名堂來。人執著科學,以為有什麼了不得,其實都是自性本有的。並不需向外求,你若是向外找,什麼時候也找不出來。你說它是真的,那都是在皮毛上呢!真的是既找不出,也說不出來。科學本來不存在,我們叫它科學,它就叫科學。

无为
Posted On 15/06/2010

什么是有为法呢?

凡是有生灭相的,都是有为法。有为法是生灭无常的。
举例子说,名闻利养,皆是有为法,如梦幻泡影。兴衰、毁誉、称讥、苦乐,皆是有为法。大家不要随着有为法转。

如果广说的话,凡是世间事相,皆是有为法。我们对有为法,可以知道,不可以住着。因为有为法是缘起的,缘起无性,住着就是遍计执。

什么是无为法?

( quote from some where……………….)
首先我们看什么是有为法。凡以自己的意识对客观世界进行描述界定并以此作为自己行为和思想的准则的想法和做法就是有为法。

佛说:一切有为法,如梦幻泡影,如露亦如电,应作如是观。

有为法是梦幻泡影,是朝露,是闪电,它昙花一现,瞬息万变,所以,用有限的人生去追求瞬息万变的昙花一现犹如在追求梦幻泡影,最终一场空。

大慈大悲的佛为了避免我们陷入梦幻泡影,最后告诉我们他什么也没说,什么法也没讲,他所说的只是过河的筏子,他的话只是我们从一个境界进入另一个境界的桥梁。

佛要我们去哪里?他要我们进入无为法中,他说“一切圣贤皆以无为法而有差别。”那么,到底什么是无为法呢?

“如来所说法,皆不可取,不可说,非法,非非法。”——这就是无为法。只要法可取,可说,它就不是无为法,而是有为法。

真正的大师是解放人的心灵的,而不是给人套枷锁的,一切圣贤品质的优劣在于看他为众生的心灵铲除了多少藩篱,解除了多少桎梏,也就是说所有的圣贤都是相互有差别的,这个差别在于看他们在无为法道行上的深浅。

佛在灵山法会上讲来讲去,最终觉得怎么讲都无法完美,所以灵机一动,发明了禅,“不立文字,直指人心,”一切的讲法,都是开启灵觉的方便法门,与其给瞎子讲解大千世界的奇妙绚丽,不如直接治好瞎子的眼睛,让他自己直接去看。

耶稣也说,若我们的眼睛是明亮的,我们的内心也是明亮的,若我们的眼睛是昏暗的,我们的内心也是昏暗的。

老子说是以圣人处无为之事,行不言之教善为道者,微妙玄通,深不可识。圣人抱一为天下式等等,可以说整部〈道德经〉就是专门讲无为法的。

六祖慧能认识到:一切万法,不离自性。自性本自清净、本自具足、无生灭、无动摇、生万法。不识本心,学法无益;若识自本心,见自本性,即名丈夫、天人师、佛。

一切圣贤其境界不同,造成差别的主要根源在于对无为法的认识和引用。

教导人做好人对吗?难说。

教导人不吃肉、不淫欲对吗?难说。

教导人吃肉、淫欲对吗?难说。不可说。

曾经一句话:对不执着的执着也是一种执着。奥妙就在其中。

无相思维是对无为法的最好注解,一切圣贤的差别将取决于所达到的无相思维的境界。

RUN FIRE …ENTER THE DEMON (STORY1)
Posted On 03/06/2010

Erm…Q should be currently 38,

he was a young chap who led a different life from many.

Since young, he is very intrested with occult..by the age of 12, he can fully memorise the characters or traits of all horoscopes..

at 14 he can draw a astrology chart off hand and he know them by hard…

at l6 he divert his intrest to eastern occult…and he master eastern occult fast…

at 17 he start to learn meditation..along the way he learn from many masters from taiwan…

at 20 after army, Q became a full time cultivator…dispite alot of objection from his family , he simply refuse to continue his studies or join the work force…he spent most of his time locking himself in his room doing meditation…

he became very “addicted” to his meditation , becos he keep hving alot of feelings from his meditation…

from seeing diff colors of lights to seeing bright lights
and then he start to feel energy from his body..
at times he even feel that he is floating…
then he start to feel throbbing at all his chakras…
and then warmth spreading all over his body..
and right behind his spinal chord, he felt energy …from books n his trachers, he thought he hv reached the level of so call kundalini….n this excited him…
he continue day n nite with his meditation…n very soon, he starts to hear things.. he hear wonderful wonderful great music…n then he start to hear ppl talking, though there is nobody

then there is one day while he is meditating a voice start to communicate with him….the voice told him alot alot ..about him, his past lives n things in the cosmic world and start to teach him diff diff ways of breathing to improve his meditation…

at times the voice will tell him things that is going to happen and they did happen..

as times goes by….Q faith with the voice grew day n nite….n became more n more reliant to it….

then 1 day after Q hv shut himself in his room n being away from the outside world…almost 3 years, the voice ask him to leave the room n go reach out to ppl ..to help mankind..

after hving sooo much faith with the voice…Q…follow the voice advice..Q ‘s family were in great joy..they tot Q hv finally wake up from his dream…

They were hard to believe Q abt his cosmic ability ..but after Q hv said n advise on few of them..things do happen n a few were really seeing wonders …

the “magic” of Q soon spread among his family n friends…ppl start to flood to his for help n advise…soon…Q start to hv a group of believer n the group start to grew….

one of the member in the group happens to b my friend cum client…n he told Q abt me..n suggest to Q to take me in as disciple..n he start to tell Q abt me…

this arouse Q intrest in me n he actually called me n made an appointment with me for his ba zi consultation…

and as a blur boy… i gong gong take his booking..

on the appointment date, as usual i waited for him at that faithful mac…jus b4 he reach…a chill feel overwhelm me..my whole body became very weird…i keep hving a leaving feel…but..too bad.. he reached..

we shake hands and start to self intro…a short 1 n then we start looking at each other..he observed me n i observed him…

his ling energy is super…super till i feel like puking n headache..but its not of a right feel..n his lig energy is pure dark blue..seldom gt ppl hv pure color…n my instinct hv told me he is not a sincere seeker but another tester…

so i bluntly told him he is not there for advise but to test me..so hw he feel abt me….

he smile n said im good n if i want, he can take me as disciple..n will groom better to b a better practitioner…cos i still hv alot of room for improvement…

i was amuse..n thanks him…n told him..i agreed with him there is still alot of room for me to improve but will not learn from him..n i told him abt the unusual energy he is hving…n i advise him to be careful…
he was abit annoyed by me.. n told me to stop 班门弄斧…n he start to tell me about my life destiny pattern n even threaten me that he will show me hw good he is that nite n the following day i will beg him to take me in as disciples…i laugh lor…

then he gt up n leave……………………………………………..

that nite while i was meditating…a strong negative energy came….i was abt to react to it..but it went off…i think must be my protector chase away the negative….after the session..i did a reading…n confirmed that Q hv 走火入魔 n was led by demon….
soon the whole event was clean forgotten by me.. cos along the way i hv meet too much naive practitioner like Q…

………………………………………………………………………………….

it was almost 1 year plus later , i gt a call from Q…his tone were rather dwn..he wanted to meet for kopi….being a kaypo i agreed…cos i also wana to know how he wana amuse me this time….

so we met 3 days later at mac…

Q seems to b total changed man…his egoistic look seems to b gone, his face was even more pale n his energy was of even darker color..
his ling energy was rather weak too…

after a bit of normal greeting, Q start to tell me abt his life…as wat i wrote earlier but with more juice la…..

after he end…so i ask him wat he wana see me today…Q eyes change ..became very very scared n sad….he told me…for the pass few months.. the voice suddenly change its attitude…it wants Q to hv sex with his female followers ,want Q to request for sex from his client..instead of money…Q was reluctant initially, but he seems to lost control of himself…..he follow instruction from the voice uncontrolled by himself n things gt worst ….the voice now even want him to hv sex with his male client ….
Q was totally depress…n there is nothing seem he can b do…he totally uncontrollable….he beg me to help him…

i look closer at his ling…its more than 80% changed…thus no more help…totally no help at all…i told him, i cant help…n im sorry….
he then left silently…..

the last i hear of him….a few yr bk, he met an accident n was on wheel chair…

The reason why Q ended up this way, from what i see is becos he dun understand 中道…and he didnt gt to know a right teacher…and most importantly…he didnt cultivate his mind…. from the start when he is so carried away by the so call “feel” he hv during his cultivation is already a sign of deviating from the correct path…n with wrong info n wrong teachings from those half past six teachers n books..it jus made him gt nearer n nearer to the dark side….

when a person soul is more than 70% influence by the dark force…basically no cure liao….for Q..is losing a pair of legs can settle the issue…its already a blessing…
