使用你的头脑、自我,但你要保持是主人

时间:2015-07-11 16:19 来源:未知 作者:吾园 阅读:
Prem Joyce问:奥修,我知道你想让我们都摆脱掉自我和头脑的束缚,对我来说,我知道这非常必要,但对我们中间那些要返回西方的人来说,没有头脑或自我的存在,难道不会让他们的生活更困难吗? 
 
 
当我说 “放下自我,放下头脑”的时候,我并不是说你再也不能使用头脑了。事实上,当你不再执着于头脑时,你可以更好、更有效地使用它,因为涉入执着的能量现在空出来了。当你不持续地、一天24小时地呆在头脑中,头脑也会获得一些休息的时间。
 
 
你知道吗?——连金属都需要休息,连金属都会疲倦。何况这部精密的头脑装置呢?它是世界上最精密的装置。在一个小小的头颅里,你携带着一部如此复杂的生物计算机,人类制造的计算机根本无法企及。科学家说一个人的大脑可以容纳世界上所有的图书馆,而且还有足够的空间可以容纳更多。
 
 
而你在持续地使用它——徒劳地,毫无必要地!你已经忘记如何关闭它了。它一直在运转,工作,疲惫不堪,长达七八十年。这就是为什么人们会丧失智力:原因很简单,他们太疲惫了。如果头脑能稍微休息一会,如果你能每天有几个小时不去管它,如果你时不时地给头脑放个假,它就会恢复活力;它就会变得更聪明,更有效,更熟练。
 
 
所以我并不是说你不能使用你的头脑,而是别被头脑使用、利用了。现在头脑是主人,你只是个奴隶。
 
 
静心让你成为主人,让头脑变成奴隶。记住:头脑作为主人是很危险的,因为它毕竟是个机器;但是头脑作为仆人的话意义非常重大,非常的实用。机器就应该作为机器运作,而不是主人。我们把重点都弄颠倒了——你的觉知应该是主人才对。
 
 
所以任何时候你想使用头脑时,在东方或者西方——在市场里你肯定要用它——尽管用!但当你不需要它的时候,当你靠在家里的游泳池或花园里休息的时候,就不需要。把它放在一边。忘掉它的一切!就只是存在。
 
 
对于自我来说也是如此。不要与它认同,就这样。记住你是整体的一部分;你跟它是不可分的。
 
 
这并不意味着,如果有人偷你家东西,你就只是看着他偷——因为你是整体的一部分,他也是,所以有什么问题呢?有人在偷你的钱,没问题——别人的手也就是你的手!我不是这个意思。
 
 
记住你是整体的一部分,这样你就可以放松,交融;偶尔你可以完全沉浸在整体中。那样会翻开你生活的新篇章。你会获得整体用之不尽的资源。你会焕然一新;获得新生,再度像个小孩子,充满欢喜,探寻,冒险,狂喜。
 
 
不要认同于自我,尽管就这个世界而言,你不得不作为一个自我来运作——但那仅仅是实用!你不得不使用“我”这个词——使用“我”这个词,但是记住这仅仅是一个词。它有一定的实用性,没有它生活是不可能的。如果你完全停止使用“我”这个词,生活就没办法继续。我们知道名字只是一个便利,没有人是带着名字出生的。但我不是说不要名字,把你的护照扔到河里。那样的话你会有麻烦。你需要一个名字;那是一个必需,因为你和这么多人生活在一起。
 
 
如果你在这世上孑然一身,那当然没必要带着护照。如果你是一个人……举个例子,如果第三次世界大战打起来了,就剩下Joyce你一人,那就没必要带着护照,你可以随便扔。也没必要有任何名字。即便你有也没用——没有人会叫你。而且甚至没必要使用“我”这个词,因为“我”需要一个“你”;没有“你”那“我”就没有任何意义。只有在有其他人的环境下这个词才有意义。
 
 
 
所以不要误解我的意思。使用你的自我,但要像你用你的鞋、雨伞、衣服一样的用它。下雨时用伞,但不需要时就不要再带着它了。睡觉的时候不要带着雨伞,不要担心梦里可能下雨……雨伞有它的用途,所以在需要的时候用它;但不要变得太过认同于它,以至于放不下它。用你的鞋,用你的衣服,用你的名字——它们全都是实用工具,但不是实相。
 
地球上有这么多的人,我们需要一些标签,一些符号,但仅仅是用来区分,确保谁是谁而已。
 
 
你问我:“我知道你想让我们全都摆脱掉自我和头脑的束缚……”
 
 
我没有说要“摆脱”,我只是说成为你头脑的主人。我没有告诉你们别用脑子;我只是说:不要只是成为头脑——你远不止这些。成为意识!然后头脑就会变成小事一桩。什么时候需要你就什么时候用它,不需要了你可以把它关掉。
 
 
当我跟你谈话的时候我在使用我的头脑。必须使用它,没别的办法。但当我踏进我自己房间的那一刻,我就不再继续使用它——没有任何必要。我只是保持静默。和你们在一起的时候我使用语言,文字,但我跟自己独处的时候就不必使用任何语言和文字。当我安住于自己的时候,不存在任何交流的问题,语言消失了。然后有一种完全不同的意识出现。
 
 
现在我的意识在流经我的头脑,通过头脑这部机器来到你们。我可以用我的手触碰你们,但我不是手。当我用手触碰你们的时候,手只是一个工具;别的东西通过手在触碰你们。身体需要被使用,头脑需要被使用,自我,语言,各种各样的东西需要被使用。只有在一种条件下,你们是被允许使用它们的:保持是主人。
 
 
 
OSHO, I KNOW YOU WANT US ALL TO RID OURSELVES OF OUR EGOS AND MINDS, AND IN MY CASE, I KNOW THAT THIS IS VERY NECESSARY, BUT FOR THOSE OF US WHO WILL BE RETURNING TO THE WEST, WOULD NOT A TOTAL ABSENCE OF MIND OR EGO MAKE LIFE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT?
 
Prem Joyce,
 
WHEN I SAY, "DROP THE EGO, DROP THE MIND," I don't mean that you cannot use the mind any more. In fact, when you don't cling to the mind you can use it in a far better, far more efficient way, because the energy that was involved in clinging becomes available. And when you are not continuously in the mind, twenty-four hours a day in the mind, the mind also gets a little time to rest.
 
Do you know? -- even metals need rest, even metals get tired. So what to say about this subtle mechanism of the mind? It is the MOST subtle mechanism in the world. In such a small skull you are carrying such a complicated biocomputer that no computer made by man is yet capable of competing with it. The scientists say a single man's brain can contain all the libraries of the world and yet there will be space enough to contain more.
 
And you are continuously using it -- uselessly, unnecessarily! You have forgotten how to put it off. For seventy, eighty years it remains on, working, working, tired. That's why people lose intelligence: for the simple reason that they are so tired. If the mind can have a little rest, if you can leave the mind alone for a few hours every day, if once in a while you can give the mind a holiday, it will be rejuvenated; it will come out more intelligent, more efficient, more skillful.
 
 
So I am NOT saying that you are NOT to use your mind, but don't be USED by the mind. Right now the mind is the master and you are only a slave.
 
Meditation makes you a master and the mind becomes a slave. And remember: the mind as a master is dangerous because, after all, it is a machine; but the mind as a slave is tremendously significant, useful. A machine should function as a machine, not as a master. Our priorities are all upside-down -- your CONSCIOUSNESS should be the master.
 
So whenever you want to use it, in the East or in the West -- of course you will need it in the marketplace -- USE it! But when you don't need it, when you are resting at home by the side of your swimming-pool or in your garden, there is no need. Put it aside. Forget all about it! Then just be.
 
And the same is the case with the ego. Don't be identified with it, that's all. Remember that you are part of the whole; you are not separate from it.
 
That does not mean that if somebody is stealing from your house you have simply to watch -- because you are just part of the whole and he is also part of the whole, so what is wrong? And somebody is taking money from your pocket, so there is no problem -- the other's hand is as much yours as his! I am not saying that.
 
Remember that you are part of the whole so that you can relax, merge; once in a while you can be utterly drowned in the whole. And that will give you a new lease of life. The inexhaustible sources of the whole will become available to you. You will come out of it refreshed; you will come out of it reborn, again as a child, full of joy, inquiry, adventure, ecstasy.
 
Don't get identified with the ego, although, as far as the world is concerned, you have to function as an ego -- that is only utilitarian! You have to use the word "I" -- use the word "I," but remember that it is only a word. It has a certain utility, and without it life will become impossible. If you stop using the word "I" completely, life will become impossible. We know names are only utilitarian, nobody is born with a name. But I am not saying to drop the name and throw your passport into the river. Then you will be in trouble! You NEED a name; that is a necessity because you live with so many people.
 
If you are alone in the world, then of course there is no need to carry a passport. If you are alone...for example, if the third world war happens and Joyce is left alone, then there will be no need to carry a passport; you can throw it anywhere. Then there will be no need to have any name. Even if you have one it will be useless -- nobody will ever call you. Then there will be no need to even use the word "I" because "I" needs a "thou"; without a "thou" the "I" is meaningless. It has meaning only in the context of others.
 
So don't misunderstand me. USE your ego, but use it just like you use your shoes and your umbrella and your clothes. When it is raining, use the umbrella, but don't go on carrying it unnecessarily. And don't go to bed with the umbrella, and don't be afraid that in a dream it may rain.... The umbrella has a utility, so use it when it is needed; but don't become so identified with the umbrella that you cannot put it aside. Use the shoes, use the clothes, use the name -- they are all utilities, not realities.
 
In the world, when so many people are there, we need a few labels, a few symbols, just to demark, just to make sure who is who.
 
You ask me: I KNOW YOU WANT US ALL TO RID OURSELVES OF OUR EGOS AND MINDS....
 
I am not saying to "get rid"; I am simply saying to be master of your minds. I am not telling you to be mindless; I am only saying: don't just be minds -- you are far more. Be consciousnesses! Then the mind becomes a small thing. You can use it whenever needed, and whenever not needed you can put it off.
 
I am using my mind when I am talking to you. The mind has to be used; there is no other way. But the moment I enter my room, then I don't go on using it -- there is no point. Then I am simply silent. With you I am using the language, the words, but when I am with myself there is no need for any language, for any words. When I am settled into myself and there is no question of communication, language disappears. Then there is a totally different kind of consciousness.
 
Right now my consciousness is flowing through the mind, using the mechanism of the mind to approach you. I can reach you with my hand, but I am not the hand. And when I touch you with my hand, the hand is only a means; something else is touching you through the hand. The body has to be used, the mind has to be used, the ego, the language, and all kinds of things have to be used. And you are allowed to use them with only one condition: remain the master
