圓滿 Completeness


這幾年,慢慢可以理解,人生並沒有所謂的「不圓滿」。事實上,往往是自己當下看不清,太急於下結論而導致不願去看到更寬廣的世界,或者執著於某個結果,才會留下殘缺在腦海中。

多年前,在台北南京東路和建國北路口,我又看見同一個喜憨老小孩在賣玉蘭花。雖然在趕往下個行程,但仍想跟他買串玉蘭。我站在他面前,望他籃中只剩三串玉蘭和一些散花。我便說要買三串玉蘭,也剛好五十元。

結果,只見他不給我串好的玉蘭花,反而給我零零落落的散花。

我心中有點納悶,甚至有點惱,心想:「怎麼給我這樣的花?」

他不太靈活的手指,緩緩地拿起一朵朵零落的玉蘭,放入小塑膠袋中。路口的紅綠燈已經由紅轉綠,習慣都市快節奏的我,其實有點心急,因為不想遲到,但又不忍打斷他。

等到他撿完盆中散花,又拿起三串乳白玉蘭放進袋中!

我驚呼:「你送我這麼多花啊!!」並慶幸自己剛剛沒打斷他。

他抬起頭, 笑著好開心,雙眸是如此清澈地望著我。

世事何嘗不是如此?

時間線拉長了,故事的結局也就不一樣了。

這讓我想起曾與上師的一段關於「圓滿」的對話,他說:「人們眼中的殘缺,其實是圓滿本身。當我們認為某件事務不完滿時,那表示腦海中我們已經有個對於『圓滿』的既定印象。」

就如,荷花每一次的凋零,都是走向圓滿生命的每一點...

凡人如我,聚散離合的紅塵中,實相是什麼,而我又看到什麼呢?

Several years ago I was walking passing by an elderly with mental disability in Taipei. He was selling stringed Magnolia flowers and I have seen him several times in this area. Even though I was in a hurry to go somewhere, I still stopped by and wanted to buy the last strings of flowers in his basket.

Instead of giving me good stringed ones, he slowly picked up few scattering flowers one by one and put them into a small plastic bag. I was puzzled by his behavior and wondered why he didn’t give me the good ones.

Nevertheless I didn’t interrupt him. I was waiting for him and the traffic light turned from red to green and green red again. After he put all scattering flowers into the bag, he picked up the last three stringed flowers and placed them in the bag too.

“ You are giving me so many flowers?” I was truly touched and surprised by his generosity and glad that I didn’t stop him due to impatience.

He raised his head, looked into my eyes gently and gave me the most beautiful smile I would never forget this life.

This encounter reminds me from time to time that we just have to be patient to see the completeness in our life story.

I remember there is a conversation about completeness with my Guru Prasad. He said that what we see as incomplete is complete in itself and if we see something incomplete that's because we have an idea a mental concept of what it is to be complete.

Just like withering lotus is a point forward towards the completion of life cycle, what do we perceive and what is the truth in life?
