28 Oct Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 11
[Series of Master Shen-Long expounding on the Prajna Paramita (Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom) Heart Sutra]
If a person lives under bright prospects, if you can attain a certain extent of bright prospects, this problem of life and death will also be gone.
Birth (life) and death itself is not bright, we constantly think of death, where death is the dark side. We now look outside and see that the color of the sky is dark, but when you have a mind unmoved by any phenomena, you will see that the color of sky is bright and shining.
How come? Your mind is shining, whereas the entire universe is dark.
This is merely a hypothesis right now, and whether you can verify into the truth is not included in this discussion for the time being; today I am only speaking about the phenomena.
Secondly, the situation of using “Cessation Insight” is like water; there is no place it cannot flow through which also means that there is nothing it cannot pass. If your path is very narrow and unpleasant in all respects, then this invites difficulties. This and Prajna (wisdom) are directly related; you want to recover this pure instinct, and you must not make life difficult for others, especially the condition of your subconscious.
For instance, we often conduct ourselves, obviously not liking the situation yet we must try to play a role with a smiling face. Secondly, we speak out with blunt statements. Thirdly, it is pressed in the mind and entirely motionless. However, for a person who uses Prajna, one will not have this problem and any word from one’s mouth all sounds right.
Why is it all right? It is not that he himself thinks it is right; it is pleasing to other people’s ears.
Everyone should give this a try.
If you think you are a happy person, then you need to think – why do you opposite yourself against others?
