堪忍世界的这一游

堪忍世界是娑婆世界之译名。此界众生忍为恶故,又诸菩萨,为教化忍受劳倦故,名曰堪忍世界。文句二下曰:《娑婆此翻忍。其土众生,安于十恶,不肯出离。从人名土,故称为忍。悲华经云:云何名娑婆?是诸众生。忍受三毒及诸烦恼,故名忍土。》玄赞二曰:《梵云索诃,此云堪忍。诸菩萨等,行利乐时,多诸怨嫉,众苦逼恼,堪耐劳倦,而忍受故,因以为名,娑婆者,讹也。》~百度百科 堪忍世界的人民不是稀有的怪,惨不忍睹的世界还有众生要再续情缘回来继续颠倒。从小总觉得自己像个外星人,看眼前的事物和人与人之间的关系很难理解, 想不通为什么有些事情看是简单, 人们总有办法复杂化。有的为情所困, 为钱所骗, 也有的为无关重要的事闹到天翻地覆。觉得自己和这世界的一切格格不入。但是堪忍世界并不是什么都是负面, 它还是有慈悲, 关怀与幸福。也可能就是如此搞到大家一头雾水难舍难分吧。 我也就这样糊里糊涂的在堪忍世界长大。在前二十几年里不但没有减少疑惑反而麻木的接受这世界就是这样的。不过心里还是期待有奇迹。原来奇迹一直以来都在我的生命中,但愚昧的我有眼无珠,到处攀缘。直到友人递一本心经,说是很深奥的哲学,让我好好去读。一本心经也成为我生命的转捩点。认真的学佛后才慢慢地悟视到堪忍世界的拼图结构,真的很欣慰‘巧’遇净土法门。 堪忍世界不只是有情感上的苦也有身理上的病苦。学人正在受病苦,也体会到堪忍世界的丑恶。自认有些些公主病,也曾经被说过我们这代人像温室里的小花的我,给我来世当一个千人呵护万人伺候的公主我也拔腿就跑。在靓丽的公主都要吃喝拉撒,拖着臭皮囊一天又一天的厌不其烦活着,最终老病死。当然不只是公主,俊俏的王子也何尝不是如此?唉,真的搞不懂为什么会有这么颠倒的众生愿意一世又一世的受折磨?(虽然自己也曾经是哪么的颠倒过 :P) 这一病,感想蛮多,也在此送大家一句藕益大师的名言:《念身不求无病。身无病则贪欲乃生。贪欲生必破戒退道。知病性空病不能恼。以病苦为良药。》学佛之人莫忘啊! 真悯 合十
