体会无常     林钰堂  

 

觉悟一切事物将来会如何转变都是说不定的,因此眼前的都是:要么有,要么没有;要么要,要么不要;要么做,要么不做。

虽然还有一些计划与安排,但是实际上,都是只能到时看情况,一步一步进展。

处世应对,只有体会无常,才能了解自己取舍、决定的意义。

Realizing Impermanence

 

Yutang Lin

 

Realizing that, how all matters will evolve in the future is unpredictable, and hence whatever at present is: either have or have not, either want or don′t want, and either do it or not do it.

Although there is still some plans and arrangements, and yet, in fact, all can only depend on situations at each juncture as matters evolve, and then move on step by step.

Responding to matters in life, only with realizing Impermanence, can one comprehend the significance of one′s choices and decisions.
