Spiritual Practice Eases the Mind

[悟覺妙天禪師開示集]
修行是一劑安心良方
縱觀今日,物質生活較以前富裕,可是又多少人的生活是真正的幸福又自在?
原因就在於心靈、精神方面,大大不如從前,不但生活沒有安全感,也不知道如何安頓心靈,這是目前社會很嚴重的問題。為什麼會發生這種狀況?因為人心愈來愈墮落。
現代人求生存、求一己之力,長期下來的結果,終致社會落入這種人心不安的病態,如何才能在這種社會病態中找到平安?唯有修行這一安心良方,即使身處亂世,但是心卻能在淨土,法喜充滿、佛光加被。

Spiritual Practice Eases the Mind

Although from a material perspective, we are wealthier and physically improved, sadly, not so many people are really happy. How could this be? This is because the people’s minds are polluted and in degradation. Although we have better physical life, we do not have better spiritual life. People live without sense of security. People do not know how to ease their mind. People work very hard to survive, which in turn makes the whole society unease. How can we find the peace in our mind amongst the stressful society? Spiritual practice eases one’s mind, which detaches us from the polluted environment.
