意識與命運

愛因斯坦曾經說過:「我們沒有在意識中經驗的,就會以命運經驗。」這項原則指的是,如果我們可以在意識層面就學會課題,那事件就不需要為了教導我們而顯化。

所有的學習都發生在內在,正因為如此,它怎麼發生的就不是那麼重要了。它可以透過直接的內在領悟,或透過複雜的人生故事發生。在大多數的情況下,我們在這方面是有選擇的。

如果一個人是聰穎、敏感、有覺知的,他在意識內就可以完成課題。如果一個人是愚鈍、不敏感和不覺知的,他就需要透過外在形式來學習。當我們的覺知是昏睡和緩慢的,或者當我們抗拒學習時,學習就需要透過濃稠的外在形式。唯有這樣,外在形式的對抗性本質才會推動一個人去學習。

對於一個人,告訴他寬恕的重要性就足以讓他學習。對於另一個人,需要看到一個人對另一個人展現寬恕才能學習。而對於另一個人,需要經歷傷痛的故事,才有機會透過選擇寬恕才能學習。

我們的課題採取的形式,不僅取決於我們在意識內學習的能力。有時候,我們的學習方法僅僅是一個偏好。一個人可能只是想透過外在的形式活出和經驗每一個學習。對他們而言,生命的豐富是透過全然投入而發生的,於是人物富麗的織錦和生命故事錯綜複雜的情境就會隨之而來。

對於渴望更快速的演化,靜心和自我探索的靈性求道者而言,可以得到更直接,更輕鬆的學習方式。不需要讓課題「成為命運」。而能夠透過較輕的震動來學習,對他們而言,在能量和心智的層面吸收課題就足夠了。

也可能雖然我們完全有能力在意識內學習,然而,如果我們與其他人有業力合同,需要透過一個事件來學習,那麼命運可能就無法避免。我們為了一個原因而降生,不是為了忽略世界,並轉向內在而已。實際上,在世界上的生活是我們選擇來的一部分。因此,有時有我們需要遇見的人們,和我們需要經歷的經驗。某些課題太過多層次、強烈和微妙,而無法繞過現實生活中的相遇。透過外在形式的學習,也會以對改變和演化更多的迫切性來影響我們的意識,從而使我們的精神不斷的落實,並與生命整合。可以說,意識是我們的修養,而生活是我們的考驗。

然而,回到愛因斯坦的原則,如果人們願意進行內在的工作,他們一般能夠加速自己的演化,而避免不必要發生的事情。透過先學習在內在的意識,我們就能夠更快速的朝向更高類型的生活經驗,而不是僅僅透過業力的迷霧和沈重的生命課題來運作。因此,愛因斯坦的觀點是對於進行內在工作一個令人信服的理由。

Consciousness vs. Fate

Einstein once said, “What we do not experience in consciousness, we experience as fate.” This principle states that if we can learn a lesson on the level of awareness alone, then an event does not need to manifest in order to teach it to us.

All learning happens within, and as such, it is not so important how it happens. It can happen either through a direct inner realization or through a complex life story. Most often, we have a choice in the matter.

If one is bright, sensitive and aware, one can simply complete a lesson inside consciousness. If one is dull, insensitive and unaware, one will need to learn through form. Learning requires the density of form when our awareness is lethargic and slow, or when we are resistant to learning; only then, will the confrontational nature of form push one to learn.

For one person, being told the importance of forgiveness is enough to learn it. For another person, seeing forgiveness being shown from one being to another is needed. For yet another, one has to undergo a story of hurt in order to be presented with an opportunity to learn through choosing forgiveness.

The shape our lessons take are not only dependent on our ability to learn inside consciousness, sometimes our methodology of learning is just a preference. One may simply want to live out every learning through physical form. For them, the richness of life happens through a full engagement with it and as such, a rich tapestry of characters and complex dynamic of life stories ensues.

For spiritual seekers whom desire a more rapid evolution, meditation and self-inquiry are embraced as a more direct and effortless way to learn. There is no need as such for lessons to “become fate.” One is content to learn through a lighter vibration; for them imbibing lessons on the level of energy and intelligence is enough.

And it may be that we are fully capable of learning within consciousness, however if we are bound by karmic contracts with others to learn through an event, then fate may not be avoided. We incarnate for a reason and do not come into the world just to ignore it and turn within. Indeed, life in the world is part of our choice to come. As such, sometimes there are simply people we need to meet and experiences we need undergo. Certain lessons are too multi-layered, dynamic and subtle to by-pass a real life meeting. Learning through form can also impact our consciousness with more urgency to change and evolve, hence keeping our spirituality continuously grounded and integrated with life. One can say, consciousness is our cultivation, and life is our test. Returning to Einstein’s principle however, one is generally able to accelerate their evolution and avert unnecessary happenings if they are willing to do the inner work. By first learning inside consciousness, we are able to progress more quickly towards higher types of life experiences instead of just working through the fog of karmas and heavy life lessons. Hence, Einstein’s insight is a compelling reason to do the inner work.
