留一隻眼睛看自己

在日本的歷史上產生過兩位偉大的劍手,一位是宮本武藏,另一位是柳生又壽郎,而柳生又壽郎是宮本武藏的徒弟。柳生又壽郎由於年少荒嬉,不肯接受父親的教導專心習劍,被父親逐出了家門。於是受了刺激的柳生,發誓要成為一名偉大的劍手,而獨自跑到一荒山去見當時最負盛名的宮本武藏,要求拜師學藝。

 

拜見了宮本武藏,柳生熱切的問道:「假如我努力的學習,需要多少年才能成為一流的劍手?」

武藏說:「你的全部餘年!」

 

「我不能等那麼久,」柳生更急切的說:「只要你肯教我,我願意下任何苦功去達成目的,甚至當你的僕人跟隨你。那需要多久的時間?」

「那,也許需要十年。」宮本武藏說。

 

柳生更著急了:「哎呀!家父年事已高,我要在他生前就看見我成為一流的劍手。十年太久了,如果我加倍努力學習需時多久?」

「嗯,那也許要三十年。」武藏緩緩的說到。

 

柳生急得快哭出來了,說:「如果我不惜任何苦功,日以繼夜的練劍,需要多少時間?」

「哦,那可能要七十年。」武藏說:「或者這輩子再也沒希望成為劍手了。」

 

此時,柳生心裡糾結著一個大疑團:「這怎麼說呀?為甚麼我愈努力,成為第一流的劍手的時間就愈長呢?」

「你的眼睛全都盯者第一流的劍手,哪裡還有眼睛看你自己呢?」武藏平和的說:「第一流劍手的先決條件,就是永遠保留一隻眼睛看自己。」

 

柳生眼中的「第一流劍手」,對你而言代表甚麼?是權位?是金錢?還是哪些目標或理想?「第一流劍手」對你的組織而言又代表甚麼?賺錢?佔有關鍵地位?還是服務社會,實踐終極關懷?是甚麼原因讓宮本武藏說,不惜任何苦功日以繼夜拼命練劍,反而無法成為第一流劍手呢?而成為第一流劍手的先決條件,就是永遠保留一隻眼睛看自己,宮本說的是甚麼意思?要看自己甚麼樣的內容呢?

 

在工作與生活中,全球快速變化、快速傳播的資訊洪流,促使每個人也莫不是汲汲營營的追求新知,唯恐不學無以活到老;可是在夜深人靜時,卻又迷惘於「我是誰?」、「我在追求甚麼?」、「這樣追求的生活是我的理想人生嗎?」因而久久不能成眠。

 

這些現象莫非也是「眼睛全都盯者『第一流的劍手』,哪裡還有眼睛看自己了呢?」或許,是該用一隻眼睛看自己的時候了。甚麼是你的不惜任何苦功,日以繼夜拼命的「練劍」?你保留了哪一隻眼睛看自己?政治場上的朋友們,當你用盡吃奶的力量批評別人時,可有一隻眼睛看自己?在終生學習的知識洪流中,積極的向外求取知識時,你又用了哪一隻眼睛看自己?用一隻眼睛看自己,你看到了甚麼?

 

如果這個社會中每個人都在祈求別人的付出,而不是自己付出時,那是誰在真正的付出呢?如果只知道向外求取而忘記了向內學習,那你如何能成就自己的生命意義呢?生命的真正意義,就在奉獻自己的生命助人啊!
