(序一)关于两极哲理的故事

许多读者看完两极哲理第十篇之后,都觉得文章内容即新鲜又玄味很浓。尤其当知悉笔者是一位无信仰者,那些有信仰的读者在言谈之中常流露疑惑的言语,再加上执笔第一到第十篇这短短的几个月内,在笔者身上发生了不可思议的突变,就构成了写这篇文章的动机了。
  

第一篇《能使心灵平静的两极哲理浅释》出炉之后,我感觉自己在起变化,我开始体验了像第八篇《漫谈内智慧境界》的大部份东西,同时我的心智也开始发生突变。是怎样的突变呢?就只有我才知道得最清楚。譬如对同事的猜疑心突然消失,不再怀疑从前对不起我的朋友。平时,怒气也愈来愈少,异性对我的吸引力逐渐地减退(并非性无能)等。为了寻找我心智变化的原因及为什么有这些转变,我开始阅读一些宗教书籍,并同时向有信仰的朋友请教,最后确定书本叙述的和我的体验是不谋而合。这些被我确定的东西包括:内智慧世界(佛教,回教及基督教肯定)、内智慧境界的光(佛教、回教与基督教都肯定)、内智慧境界的音(佛教与基督教肯定,回教不详)、灵魂及出游(佛教、回教及基督教都肯定)。
  

有关心智变化方面,由于我有了这方面的体验,再重读有关的佛学书籍,甚觉历史悠久的佛学,记载得最详细也全面。它把一个人在不同阶段的心智变化加以分类,并给予正名,如:信徒、小乘、中乘、大乘、僧伽、达摩、佛,等等。但最能把心智变化用简单句子清楚地描写出来的,我倒认为是回教的 THE PHILOSOHPY OF THE TEACHINGS OF ISLAM 一书的著作 H.M. GHULAM AHMAD。据他对可兰经的参悟,认为人的心智有三个基本境界,
如果一个人的衣食住行及喜怒是随心所欲的话,即是自然境界(NATURAL STATE);当一个人能以理解及讲道理的态度处世,并能自制自然境界之行为时,即进入道德境界(MORAL STATE)。第三个境界称为精神境界(SPIRITUAL STATE;“一个人达到这个境界时,他的自然行径和习惯遭遇完整的改变,并与过去的情形有极大的相差

原文: AT THAT TIME NATURE AND HABITS EXPERIENCE A COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION, AND THE PERSON IS DRAWN FAR AWAY FROM HIS PREVIOUS CONDITION.   

他在这种情形之下过一段时期之后,当约定的时刻来到时,具有神的力量之光会在白天或夜里降临在他身上。随着那降临在他身上的光,他经历一种奇妙的转变并察觉到大自然之手的运作,并见到美妙的境界。他此时发觉了真主的存在,眼里充满了以前所没有的亮
光。

原文: HE REMAINS IN THIS SITUATION FOR A PERIOD AND WHEN THE APPOINTED TIME COMES, A LIGHT DESCENDS UPON HIM AT NIGHT OR DURING THE DAY, WHICH POSSESSES DIVINE POWER. WITH THE DESCENT OF THAT LIGHT, HE UNDERGOES A WONDERFUL CHANGE AND HE PERCEIVES THE CONTROL OF A HIDDEN HAND, AND BEHOLDS A WONDERFUL WORLD. AT THAT TIME, HE REALIZES THAT GOD EXIST AND HIS EYES ARE FILLED WITH A LIGHT WHICH THEY DID NOT POSSESS BEFORE.   
了解了回教所谓的精神境界,很自然的,我肯定自己由于运用了两极哲理后,现在是处于这个境界,其实这个精神境界也是佛教所谓的开悟,是佛家子弟梦昧以求的境界。我只懂两极哲理,也许两极哲理给我,或给大多数人以,所以得到了的所赐而开悟吧?我一直认为两极哲理只能使我心灵平静、心平气和,但很意外的,由于我发现、认识并形成文字后,就逐渐达到了开悟的境界,莫非是上帝的安排或佛的力量在帮助我吧?
  

谈回突变,生物的的确确有发生突变这回事,其英文生物学名是MUTATION。生物从细小的遗传基因、病毒,到整个器官及整个身躯,都可能发生突变。新型的疟疾、性病、流行感冒及癌症等的出现,都和突变有关。白鸟鸦、白鳄鱼及白老虎的产生,也是基因突变所造成。那么人会突变吗?突变往往是受到外来的影响之后才发生,那么人的心智受到外来的影响后会不会突变呢?这些问题我看只好留待两极哲理与医学间进行探讨研究,也许能得到答案。
  

谈回发生在笔者身上的突变,我目前的感觉就像我对一位向他请求指点的寺院师父及朋友说的话:上天把我和别人的生辰八字对掉错了,突变才会发生在我身上,目前我好像是另外一个人,像在寺院或教堂里做那份差事似的。无论如何,我现在还未能调整突变后给我带我的后遗症,因为我过去所想的及所做的许多事情,现在都突然间认为不少是不正确了,(因为过去我带着很重的疑、忌、恨去看待事情)。我过去和家人、同事、朋友及亲戚的相处方式,现在已经加以调整,但骤然间我好像还无法适应这些改变,所以感叹无奈地写了第十篇《宇宙游戏》。如果说两极哲理能使我开悟,那么天堂不就得修改资格才能让我进去吗?《痴人梦话》就是变成真的了。
  

向来宗教都不鼓励教徒谈体验,怕教徒过于沉迷于这方面,所以就有有体验不得向外人说的条例。但不谈体验就会使体验更加的神秘,对或错,不但别人没法知到,连自己也无法知道。既然我不受这些条例约束,本着抛砖引玉的态度,即写出了《漫谈内智境境界》,这篇看起来似乎很玄的文章,实则文中那些描述详细的地方都是笔者所体验过的真材实料,笔者觉得要揭开人类内智慧境界之迷,就必须公开大家的体验。因而在第八篇里也把笔者的通讯地址附上,希望能够搜集多一些这方面的资料。
  

笔者本身的专长是市场行销。要在市场上行销或售卖一种新产品,就要确保新产品没太多的缺陷,所以需要回馈。那么打个比方,两极哲理要是放在市场行销学里亦可归纳为新产品。所以每当新篇一出炉,我就积极打字并分发给亲朋戚友,同时也做小规模公开讲座,这样一来取得不少的回馈。笔者又根据回馈写了《怎样运用两极哲理》、《两极哲理的起源》,并在《什么是两极哲理》补充了一些在第一篇里没交代清楚或使人误解的东西。致于《天地图》,笔者的用意是希望它能吸引科学家有朝一日对人脑与灵魂做些学术性的研究,从而揭开天、地、人三界之间的关系。
  

笔者为了写好两极哲理,参考了不少宗教方面的书籍,所以文中不少地方涉及了对各宗教的认识,并用分析归纳法写了《再谈心灵平静的益处》。不难发现越能被分析的东西就越不似宗教,所以这篇文章的内容也就显得玄奥了。
  

写《心灵平静的益处》的灵感来自笔者的管理学老师张角声博士。记得当笔者请他过目指点《能使心灵平静的两极哲理浅释》时,他除了指出文章尚欠不完整之外,也同时告诉笔者他认为一个人的心灵平静能恢复古代人类常具有某些超能力的本领,譬如能感觉到几时会下雨,或某某人就快回来了的预感等。也由于张老师的一番话,引发了我对心灵平静的好奇而进一步加以探讨,《心灵平静的益处》就是在这种情形之下以逻辑性的笔调写了出来。
  

亲爱的朋友,两极哲理您看后会有什么感想,您不妨试试,或许您会收获不少呢!但愿两极哲理越来越充实,给人类作出大的贡献!

Prologue I : Stories about the Law of Event(s) upon Event

Many readers felt it novel and abstruse after reading Part Ten, particularly after they got to know the author is an atheist. The eagerness to pacify the doubts of the readers combined with the "mutation" occurred within the author constituted the motive behind writing this book.

When I finished Part One "Introduction to the Law of Event(s) upon Event: a Spiritual Tranquillizer", I felt a change within myself, experiencing much of what is described in Part Eight "Notes on the World of Inner Wisdom". In the meantime, I sensed a psychological "mutation". What "mutation" ? Only I myself know so clearly. For instance, doubts and suspicions about colleagues and friends suddenly disappeared; no longer did I resent those who had betrayed me; anger diminished; attractions from the opposite sex reduced (not impotent). To seek for an answer to the cause of this "mutation", I began to read books on religions and asked advice from friends. In the end, I came to the conclusion: What is described in those books is identical to my own experience. I have made clear such things as, the world of inner wisdom and the light and sound from this world, the soul and its departure from the body, all of which are respectively acknowledged by Buddhism, Islam and Christianity.

As for psychological mutation, I turned to Buddhist scriptures for evidence. To my surprise, its detailed description conform to my own experience. In these scriptures, an individual's psychological changes at different stages are classified and nominated as: ordinary follower ( zhong-sheng 众生), believer ( xin-tu 信徒), the lesser vehicle ( xiao-cheng小乘 ), the middle vehicle ( zhong-cheng中乘 ), the higher vehicle ( da-cheng 大乘), monk ( seng-jia 僧伽) , Da'mor ( da-mor达摩 ) and Buddha ( fo ), and etcs. And in my opini
on, it is "The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam" that described these psychological changes in simple terms. The author H. M. Ghulam Ahmad, based on his own understanding of the Koran held that the psychological changes have three different states. If a person can always be at ease with his food, clothing and temperament, he is at the natural state. When he is able to take a rational attitude towards the world and is able to control his natural state behaviour, he has entered the moral state. The third is called spiritual state, when a person reaches this state he becomes a complete different being from his previous self. "At this time, nature and habits, experience a complete transformation and the person is drawn far away from his previous condition."

"He remains in this situation for a period and when the appointed time comes, a light descends upon him at night or during the day which possesses divine power. With the descent of that light, he undergoes a wonderful change and he perceives the control of a hidden hand, and beholds a wonderful world. At that time, he realizes that God exists and his eyes are filled with a light which they did not possess before."

Having understood what Islam referred to as the spiritual state, I felt quite sure I am right in this state. Such a state is what Buddhism described as enlightenment, which all of its believers seek after. I was enlightened, perhaps for my understanding of the Law of Event(s) upon Event (LEE), or for the kindness of God? I always believe LEE can enable me a peaceful mind, I did not expect I could reach the state of enlightenment along the course of understanding LEE and putting it into words. Perhaps, this is the will of God.

In terms of mutation it is true that there is such a phenomenon in biology. Mutation may happen to the minute genes, viruses, organs and the whole body. The discovery of new strain of diseases, such as malaria, venereal disease, the flu, and cancer, are all linked to mutation. The emergence of white crow, white crocodile and white tiger, is also due to the mutation of genes. Then, can such mutations occur to human beings? Will the inner wisdom undergo a sort of mutation when affected by the outside world? Perhaps we may turn to future medical science and LEE for a definite answer.

As for myself, I can hardly explain the mutation which has occurred to me. I therefore once confided my feelings to friends and a master at his temple, that perhaps God kindled the mutation in me simply by mistake. Anyway, I feel like a completely different person now, as if I was doing the holy job of a priest at a monastery or church. Still I am unable to adjust myself to the sequelae induced by this mutation, because what I had done and my thoughts in the past suddenly seem to be wrong. Although I tried hard to modify the usual norms of behaviour, with regard to family members, friends and relatives, I still do not feel quite myself. Perplexed and at a loss, I wrote Part Ten "The Cosmic Game". If it is LEE that has enlightened me, Heaven must then modify its admission qualifications to let me in. In such a case, the "idiotic somniloquy" may come true.

Religions always discourage the believers to exchange personal 'experiences', fearing that they might get too indulged. Hence, "Keeping the personal 'experience' to oneself" has become a regulation. However, such a practice may make the personal experience even more mysterious. As a result, others have no way to share your feelings, and even you yourself do not know whether it is right or wrong. Unconstrained by this regulation, I disclosed my own experience in "Notes on the World of Inner Wisdom". Abstruse and mythical it may seem to be, the detailed descriptions are all based on my own experience, thus true to fact. In my opinion, we must publicize our own experiences so as to disclose the mysteries of the world of human inner wisdom.

With intention to collect such information, I wrote down my address at the end of Part Eight. With an expertise in marketing, I know clearly how to promote sales of a new product. First of all, you must make sure that the product itself is sound and perfect. Second, you need feedback from the customers. LEE, in marketing terms is also a new product. To ensure sufficient feedback, every time I finish writing, I would distribute and hold discussions or seminars among friends. Inspired by the feedback, I wrote "How to Use LEE", "The Origin of LEE", and "What is LEE" in which I further explained what seemed to be ambiguous and misleading. As for "A Map of Heaven and Earth", my intention lies in arousing the interests of scientists in possible research into the soul and brain and eventually uncover the relations among Heaven, Earth and man.

The inspiration for "The Benefits of Spiritual Tranquillity" comes from my former teacher Dr. Zhang Jiaosheng, who, besides pointing out the weaknesses of my writings, also expressed his own views on the benefits of a peaceful mind. He suggested that tranquillity helps to restore the extraordinary abilities as possessed by the ancients. For instance, the ancients could forecast the coming of a rain or storm; they could also foretell the coming of a visitor. Inspired by Dr. Zhang's insights, I wrote "The Benefits of Spiritual Tranquillity", and not without logic.

Dear friends, whatever reflections you have on this book, I hope you will also benefit from reading it.
