【英汉对照版】生命的价值和意义 The Value and Meaning of LIFE

生命的价值和意义

The Value and Meaning of LIFE

   

   

   人生和生命是共体的,但人生和生命是不同的,人生只是生命在人间的一次旅行,而生命万古长青永恒存在,人生可以随时结束,但生命将继续旅行,同一个生命,某些时段,可能以马的形态出现在动物界,在另一个时段,可能以人的形态出现在人间,再过一些阶段,可能以仙人的形态出现在万年界,这就像一个人随季节变换不断变换服装,随个人爱好或时代风尚不断变换服饰,不断变换的衣服就像人生,而躯体就像生命。

   Life is co-substantiated by LIFE but each are different entities. Life is only a single journey of LIFE in the Mortal World, but LIFE exists eternally; the former can end at any time but the later will continue on. A LIFE may appear as a horse in the Animal World in one life, then as a person in another, and then as a celestial being in the Ten-thousand-year World in a third. It is like a person changing their clothes to meet changing weather conditions or the fashions of the times; those different clothes are like different lives and the person’s body is like a LIFE.

   

   “离离原上草,一岁一枯荣,野火烧不尽,春风吹又生。”一枯一荣,就是草的一生,但一生结束了,春风吹,来生又开始了,再荣再枯,再枯再荣,循环不已,生生不息。为什么会循环不已生生不息呢?因为草的生命一直永恒存在。人有前世、现世、来世,犹如草春生夏长秋收冬藏,来年继续如此。

   “The wild grasses grow in the fields lushly; they flourish in the Spring and wither in the Autumn each year. The wild fire can never burn them out because they will thrive when Spring breeze blowing”. Flourishing once and withering once is the life of grass, but as that life ends and then Spring’s warmth looms, their next life begins in a never-ending cycle, while life and growth continue endlessly. Why is grass endless? Because grass LIFE exists eternally! People have many lives: this one, all the ones before, and all the ones still to come, just as grass grows in Spring and Summer, withers in Autumn and Winter, has done so for countless seasons, and will continue to do so for countless more.

   

   生命的本质是有灵性的一种反物质结构,是看不见摸不着的,它通过人生来展现自己,这犹如道的体、相、用,我们看不见道,因为道是一种反物质存在,但我们可以通过大千世界的相状和万事万物万象的用途知晓这一切都是道的体现。

   The essence of LIFE is a nonmaterial structure with spirituality which is invisible, untouchable, and illustrates itself through life. This is like the essentialities, forms, and use of Dao; we cannot see Dao because it is a nonmaterial existence, but we can know that all things in the universe are its manifestations through the images of the world and the use of all things.

   

   生命可以借助看得见摸得着的物质的形式出现在视野中,比如地球上的所有植物、动物、人都是看得见摸得着的生命,生命也可以以看不见摸不着的非物质的形式出现在反物质世界,比如阴间的鬼魂,极乐界的神佛,仙岛群岛洲的天仙,这就是指灵体,比如人,可以以肉体的形式出现在这个物质世界上,也可以以灵体的形式出现在梦境这个反物质世界中。

   LIFE comes into view through material forms which are visible and palpable; all plants, animals, and people on earth are visible and touchable LIVES; LIFE can also exist in nonmaterial forms which are invisible, untouchable, and are in the nonmaterial world, such as ghosts in the underworld, gods and Buddhas in the Elysium World, and Super Celestial Beings from the Elysium Celestial Islands Continent; all these are spiritual forms. It is just like people who appear in the material world as flesh and blood, but also in the non-material world, such as dreamland, in the form of spirits.

   

   虽然说生命的本质是一种有灵性的反物质结构,但对此作为人很难理解,那么,我们可以粗浅的把生命看成灵魂,灵魂就是生命,那么,什么又是灵魂呢?灵魂就是游荡在茫茫无际灵的海洋中的意识。

   Although the essence of LIFE is a nonmaterial structure with spirituality, it is difficult for people to understand it; we can view LIVES as souls and souls as LIVES. What are souls? They are consciousnesses wandering in the boundless ocean of psyche.

   

     现在,我们把生命简化为意识,这样就好理解多了,也就是说,生命就是意识。因为有什么样的意识,就有什么样的生命存在形态和生活环境。当一个生命的意识状态是猪时,这个生命就以猪的形态生活在家畜世界里;当一个生命的意识状态是人时,这个生命就以人的形态出现在人间这个物质世界里;当一个生命的意识状态是仙时,这个生命就以仙的形态出现在诸如千年界、万年界、仙岛群岛洲那个环境中;当一个生命的意识状态是神时,这个生命就以神的形态出现在反物质世界里。为什么《西游记》中的孙悟空有72变的神通变化呢?因为他掌握了随意使意识变化的奥妙,意识变了,形态随之跟着演变。

   We can simplify LIVES as “consciousnesses” to make them easier to understand; that is to say, LIVES are consciousnesses since the states of consciousnesses determine the existence form of LIVES and living environments. When a state of consciousness of a LIFE is a pig, it lives in the livestock world in the form of a pig; when the state of consciousness of a LIFE is a person, it appears in the material world in the form of a human being; when the state of consciousness of a LIFE is a celestial, it appears in the form of a celestial being in the environment such as the Thousand-year World, the Ten-thousand-year World, or the Elysium Celestial Islands Continent; when the state of consciousness of a LIFE is a god, it appears in the nonmaterial world in the form of god. Why did Sun WuKong in “Journey to the West” have 72 changes in avatar? Because he had mastered the mystery of making consciousnesses change at will; as his consciousness changed, his form of LIFE changed with it.

   

   生命是有层次的,有些生命属于高级生命,有些生命属于低级生命,比如昆虫和飞鸟相比,飞鸟是高级生命,昆虫是低级生命。植物和动物相比,动物就是高级生命,而植物就是低级生命。动物与人相比,人是高级生命,动物是低级生命。人与仙佛神相比,仙佛神是高级生命,人是低级生命。仙佛神与上帝相比,上帝是高级生命,仙佛神是低级生命。生命的最高级形态是上帝,生命的最低级形态是细菌。

   LIVES are hierarchical, some belong to higher levels of LIFE while others belong to lower levels. For example:

    • Flying birds are higher levels than insects

    • Animals are higher levels than plants

    • People are higher levels than animals

    • Gods, Buddhas, and celestials are higher levels than people

    • The Greatest Creator is the highest level of LIFE

    • Bacteria are the lowest levels of LIFE

   

   了解了以上基本常识后,我们就知道,高一级生命对低一级生命有绝对的生杀予夺权,低一级生命就是为高一级生命服务的,所有生命都是为上帝服务的。

   After understanding this basic common sense, we know that higher levels of LIFE have absolute power of life and death over lower levels, that lower levels serve them, and that all of them serve the Greatest Creator.

   

   由此我们知道,生命存在的价值在于为高一级生命服务,终极价值是为上帝服务。比如人养鸡养猪,鸡和猪生存的价值就是为人服务,如果不为人服务,那么自身也就失去了存在的价值。失去了存在的价值,必将走向毁灭。那么人这个生命存在的价值就是为上帝服务,如果不为上帝服务,自身就失去了存在的价值,必将走向毁灭,所谓走向毁灭,不是生命不存在了,只是说作为人不能存在了,必须变换一种形式,比如轮回到动物世界去为人服务。

   We know that all LIVES serve higher levels of LIFE and the ultimate value is in serving the Greatest Creator. People raise chickens and pigs to serve people; if they did not, then they would lose their value for existence. Their loss of value for existence would surely result in their destruction. The value of the existence of people is to serve the Greatest Creator; if they do not, then they will lose their value of existence and will surely be made extinct. The so-called “ destruction” does not mean that our LIVES would cease to exist, but that they could not exist as humans, they would have to be transformed into other forms such as descending into the Animal World to serve humans.

   

   那么,生命存在的意义是什么呢?答:生命存在的意义在于为宇宙生命大剧本当演员,整个宇宙的演绎就是一场规模巨大的戏剧演出,每一个生命在这场戏中扮演着按照剧本情节的要求的演员角色。

   So, what is the meaning of LIFE? The meaning of LIFE is to be an actor in the grand script of universal LIFE. The entire universe is a great dramatic performance in which each LIFE plays a role as required by the script.
