發牙痕篇之(四) 君子坦蕩蕩

轉眼間,任我痕在霎哈嘉已吃了一千零九十五晚夜粥,期間他留意到身邊很多跟他剛剛相反,在spectrum另一端的人。他們有的神神秘秘, 有的鬼鬼祟祟,有的偷偷摸摸,有的閃閃縮縮,總之就是生活得很不自由。當中有一位「閃電俠」,其性情溫馴,不過可能因為比較怕事的原故,行為頗為閃縮。有 一次,他為了掩飾自己的過失,撒了一個謊把責任推卸在任我痕身上,然後在電光火石間閃開了。被同門師兄弟出賣了,生氣之餘 當然很難過,於是他問師傅:「為什麼人們要說謊?Why do people lie?」師傅答道:「因為他們不懂得真理的力量。Because they don’t know the power of the truth.」自那次以後,閃電俠正眼也不敢望任我痕一下。雖然早已寬恕了他,他的左喉輪卻從此阻塞。師傅也曾教導過,左喉輪通常膽拖ego,假如我們因為ego而面對不了自己的過失,它會製造出許多藉口以使事情合理化,但那罪疚感卻油然而生。左喉輪逐漸變塞又得,立即塞晒亦得,塞咗! 其實人誰無過?任我痕看到閃電俠再抬不起頭做人,他明白了一個道理:一個人若犯了錯,能勇於承擔及悔改,總比背著逃避事實帶來的罪疚感這個包袱來得輕鬆。「做人但求無愧於心」這句話是真的。

不 過懂得慚愧,也總比那些錯了也不知悔過的人好。在江湖中有很多「禮義廉」派之門人,戴著虛假的面具渾水摸魚。所謂「禮義廉」,無恥也。他們的教義為: (一)衰嘢唔怕做,只要冇人知道;(二) 假如被揭發,要扮九唔搭八。他們犯錯時,不會正視自己的問題,相反地,會揭盡所能去掩飾、隱瞞,試圖用紙包住火。有睇麥太教煮餸的朋友都 知,紙係用來包雞的,不是包火,真是沒有一點常識!他們經過長久以來的鍛鍊,面部皮膚已煉至幾丈厚,講大話時亦無需眨眼,務求達到騙人兼騙己的最高境界。 對於這些人,師傅有這樣的看法:「Truth is light… it has to be transparent… absolutely clear-cut. This secrecy business can be only with thugs and mafia and things like that… because they are afraid of the statutes of God… of His laws… that’s why it is a secret (Lethargy – Chelsham Road 800809). They’ll hide from the man with whom they are connected, and just do… secretly… this is not good… they are deceiving themselves… and they are deceiving another person. Deception this is not freedom (Guru Puja Pt 3, Dollis Hill (Q&A) 791202).」

另一類人,雖然行得正企得正,但卻諸多顧慮,事事隱瞞。「隱形俠」可說是其中的表表者。他總讓人看到最好的一面,並且說話甜美,在武林中人緣很好。驟眼看起來,隱形俠的確近乎完美,因為他把一切負面的東西都隱形掉了。但相處久了,難免令人感到有點虛假、有點不真實。有一次隱形俠在華山論劍時敗於「絕代雙蕉」手下,當時直腸直肚之任我痕諗住話埋去安慰吓佢,點知都未開口,隱形俠已經隱咗形,嚇得大俠以為自己撞邪,立即拔劍耍咗成套「辟邪劍法」出嚟。師傅聽聞任我痕傻呼呼喺山頭攞住把劍係咁舞,於是千里傳音向他及尚在其身邊但隱咗形嘅隱形俠說: 「...you are Sahaja Yogis. It’s a different race. All over the world this race has to come up. So we have to build up ourselves, in One group, in One understanding. Absolute unison… There should be no secrets, no domination, everything should articulate. Everyone should talk to each other; Everyone should know what is happening with the other. You have to be absolutely frank – open – with each other. Absolutely. Tell them your problems: ‘I catch on this, what should I do? How to clear it out?’ Not to feel shy. We have to enjoy ourselves. Also enjoy our weaknesses, so that we clear them out. Laugh it out. That’s the best way to do it. 」 (V 5. no 30. Nov 85. p13 ──不知道來源是否Divine Cool Breeze)

聽罷,隱形俠突然現番形(任我痕又被他嚇多一嘢,不斷喺度Jai Jagadambe),坐在草地上冥想起來。他想起笑俠經 常霎時輝筆寫道:「不要判斷其他人,你怎判斷別人,上帝也會怎樣判斷你。」他終於明白到原來自己之所以如此驟忌讓人知道他的弱點、這麼在意別人的看法(所 以要經常討好他人),是因為自己心底裡也經常判斷別人(雖然沒有說出口),同時也過不了“自己嗰關”。這關正是額輪嗰關,我們必須戰勝Vanity(虛榮 / 自負) ──額輪之大敵,方可修成正果。 因為,the world is our mirror. “ The good we find in others, is in us too. The faults we find in others are our faults as well.” ( http://brissybliss.blogspot.com/2006/09/world-is-our-mirror.html)

而講到隱秘,不得不提大俠──全名「吳廣德」。大俠的興趣是搜羅天下間之「秘密」(不管是自己的還是別人的)作為他的收藏品。本來那只是一種嗜好,但後來為了成為武林第一(第一多珍藏秘密的人),他開始有點為了收藏秘密而秘密,就連那些雞毛蒜皮、細眉細眼的事都“唔講得”。有一天,任我痕在江湖行走時,碰上了大俠拿著一盒外賣從店子走出來,於是隨便問道:「而──咦?未食飯乎?」,吳廣德自衛式地回應:「大俠何出此言?」說:「你手中拿著的不是飯盒……?」大俠尚未嗎出聲,突然一巨型金鐘從天而降,把大俠整個人罩著,隨即嚇到Fit一聲以輕功彈開。原來為了收藏秘密,當被問及問題時,便會使出「金鐘罩」作自我保護,擋開問題。久而久之,這招已差不多變成一種反射動作。難怪任我痕大俠相處時經常覺得隔了一道牆,有點被拒於千里外之感覺。性情率直之任我痕諗極都唔明,做人光明正大,事無不可對人言,何解大俠為了區區一個飯盒要使出金鐘罩咁“金”呢?差點由本來唔再頭痕諗到痕番。他心想吳廣德佢一定餓得好交關,怕佢搶飯食嘞。於是他敲敲個罩嚷道:「大俠你唔洗驚,我淨係食蕉架咋!」,但似乎冇乜動靜,於是打開師傅給他的錦囊,抽出了一張Leela留下來給罩中之大俠,便繼續行走他的江湖了。

字 條上寫著師傅的一番教誨:「What is secret in Nature… have you seen anything? See the ocean, the flowers… the best is open… absolutely the whole Brahma, the whole truth is open… if it is not open it is not truth. If it is hidden how can it be the truth? (Lethargy – Chelsham Road 800809). You must be open hearted… no secretiveness (What are we inside 800809); If it is freedom, it should be open… why is there secrecy about it? (Guru Puja Pt 3, Dollis Hill (Q&A) 791202).」

大俠讀了字條後,一直緊閉的心靈得到解放,頓時心花怒放,並跟任我痕一起上山拜師。師傅見求 道心切,愚子可教,並看出他這隱秘行徑的部份原因乃來自其conditionings(思想制約),於是贈了他幾句:「When it is conditioning, you are in doubts, with this kind of fear... that 'I shouldn't do like this'... 'I shouldn't do like that'... 'this is not allowed'... 'that is not allowed'... that is the conditioning part of it, and can be of many types (980510 Meditation is the only way, Sahastrara, Cabella); Conditioning has to go... has to be reduced as much as possible (821231 Ganesha Puja, Kolapur); Conditionings kill joy, and must be cleared out (960505 We must feel responsible, Sahastrara, Cabella).
Give up all superstitions, fanaticisms, and fears... nothing can harm us now... whatever is gone, is gone... is finished - the leaves that fall from the tree don't rise again, and get attached to the tree; What is new that is coming in, is to be nurtures - is the Joy... that dignified, majestic beauty within ourselves. Then we don't get upset, we are not bothered what others say... and others will see that dignity (800517.1 Old Arlesford, Whinchester pt 1 - Preparation for Becoming).」吳聽後不再受其思想之制約,無思慮一身輕,終於得到了真正的解脫和自由。阿彌陀佛,善哉,善哉。

Moral of the stories:

  1. 「君子坦蕩蕩,小人長戚戚」
  2. 出來行走江湖,最好識多啲英文,否則高人千里傳音又好,兜口兜面袋錢入你袋都好,冇Nicam收唔到,就認真徙料矣。(不過當然,在能量層面而言,只要有純粹的願望,在無思慮狀態下一樣咁得,得咗。)

任大俠「任我痕」何許人也?此事也是記載於「武林秘史」……

少俠dingding開始闖盪江湖,攀山涉水,希望能結識各地英雄豪傑,尋找武林絕學秘笈,追尋武功之最高境界。後來,因緣際會得一奇遇,蒙祖師婆婆從天竺國千里傳音,有幸一睹霎哈嘉精微武學,但因少俠年少氣盛,心浮氣躁,學得一招半式便悄然下山去了。某日,百無聊賴之際,越過叢林山澗,在山蔭幽谷中發現江湖相傳已久之「萬綠叢中一個窿」,在山洞壁上更記載有霎哈嘉武學的種種秘技,直教少俠看得如癡如醉,心裡暗嘆一聲︰「武功博大精深,又豈是其他旁門左道所及,當天真的是如入寶山空手回!」……山洞壁上並刻有「任我痕」之名,少俠大有相逢恨晚之感。

去年少俠dingding重歸祖師婆婆門下,今年八月,少俠參與一年一度武林結義盛會,得笑俠相贈之珍珠手鐲,而在武林另一端冒起eb大俠之名,乃笑俠之小師妹也,少俠總覺得有重遇故人的感覺,未知何解?

如果eb小師姐能有機會再見「任大俠」,請代問候一聲,大家江湖再見。
