大德蘭的智慧

文章jackhcliu » 2008.06.16 週一 9:55 PM

跟大家分享幾段大德蘭的智慧。第一段是後人在她的日課書中所發現的一段禱文:

何事擾你意?何物亂你心?

萬般皆易逝,唯主不移真。

心有天主者,堅忍百事成。

夫復何所求,有主心意稱。

下面這兩段,是取自靈心城堡,是我在 Meditations from Carmel podcast 聽到的。把我們的靈魂比喻成鑽石、成水晶,意境好美:

讓我們把自己的靈魂想做是一座城堡,完全由鑽石或是純淨的水晶所砌成,在城堡裡,有很多內室,就像天堂有很多的住所。姊妹們,我們仔細想想,我們就會發現,一個人的靈魂,不啻是一個樂園,而主說也說過他歡悅於此。因此,你們認為,如此有大能、有智慧、純潔、美善的君王的住所是怎麼樣的呢?靈魂的莊嚴美麗與能力是無可比擬的。的確,我們的理智是無法參透這種美,就像理智無法參透天主,但天主親自說過,我們是按照他的肖像造成的。。
靈心城堡 1.1

"Consider our soul to be like a castle made entirely out of a diamond or of very clear crystal, in which there are many rooms, just as in heaven there are many dwelling places. For in reflecting upon it carefully, Sisters, we realize that the soul of the just person is nothing else but a paradise where the Lord says He finds His delight. So then, what do you think that abode will be like where a King so powerful, so wise, so pure, so full of all good things takes His delight? I don’t find anything comparable to the magnificent beauty of a soul and its marvelous capacity. Indeed, our intellects, however keen, can hardly comprehend it, just as they cannot comprehend God; but He Himself says that He created us in His own image and likeness."
Interior Castle 1.1


我們應該注意,這個水泉,這個閃亮的太陽,在我們靈魂的中心,從不失去它的美麗與光亮。這分美善常在我們的靈魂當中,沒有人能把它奪走。然而,如果一塊黑布,蒙蔽住了太陽下的水晶,即使太陽是不斷地放出光芒,太陽的光芒,對水晶就顯然不會有任何作用了。
靈心城堡 2.3

It should be kept in mind here that the fount, the shining sun that is in the center of the soul, does not lose its beauty and splendor; it s always present in the soul, and nothing can take away its loveliness. But if a black cloth is placed over a crystal that is in the sun, obviously the sun's brilliance will have not effect on the crystal even though the sun is shining on it.
