"仙"与"俗"

"仙"与"俗“, 都是会意字,从单人旁。仙与俗都是人,但是他们的区别有如山和谷。就是有高低之别。是什么高低呢?主要是指意识境界的高低。所以儒家讲究存心养性,道家家讲究修心练性,佛家讲究明心见性。同样,中国的很多武术门派都拜达摩为祖师,经常看到的一幅对联就是”达摩西来一字无,全凭心意用功夫“。

万法归宗,其本质都是要在动心起念处进行修养。佛家讲究当下,当下一念做好,那你这一刻就是佛。将每一个当下做好,那就成佛。

最后,让我们看看英文中我非常喜欢的一段描述:

Watch your thoughts, they become words;

watch your words, they become actions;

watch your actions, they become habits;

watch your habits, they become character;

watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
