把整个生命看成是一则神话故事。生命本来就是如此,然而一旦你如此看待它,就不会再不开心了。你不开心是因为你太严肃了。用七天的时间试试看,在这七天当中只要记得一件事:这整个世界就像是一出戏。那么你将变得不一样。只要七天!你不会有任何损失的,因为你没什么可损失的。

 

试试看。用七天时间,把每一件事当成一出戏、一场秀。

 

这七天将会使你瞥见到你的佛性、瞥见到你内心的纯净。一旦有了如此的瞥见,你就不再像以前一样了。你将会很快乐,你无法想象那是什么程度的快乐,因为你从来都不知道有关快乐的事。你只知道各种不快乐的级数:有时比较不开心,有时没那么不开心,当你没那么不开心时你称它快乐。

 

你不知道什么是快乐,因为你无从而知。当你把这个世界看得那么严肃时,你如何知道快乐是什么。快乐只会在你以轻松游戏的态度看待这个世界时才会发生。

 

所以,试试看,用过节庆的方式做每一件事,庆祝,演一出戏。如果你是某人的先生,那就演先生的角色,如果你是太太,那就演太太的角色。就像玩游戏一样。当然,这有规则,任何游戏都有其游戏规则。结婚是法规,离婚也是法规,但是不要把它们看得太严肃。它们只是规则,一个规定招致另一个规定。离婚不好;因为结婚也不好:一个规定招致另一个规定!所以不要太严肃对待,然后看看立刻,生活质量是如何的改变了。

 

跟你的太太、先生或孩子互动时,就好像正在演戏剧中的一个角色一样,然后你可以欣赏其中的美妙。如果你正在演一个角色,你会尽可能演好你的角色但不会被这个角色所打扰。你演完戏,然后上床睡觉。在这七天,牢记并且遵守这个态度:那只是一个角色。

 

然后快乐就会在你身上出现,一旦知道快乐是什么就没有必要移到不快乐了,那是你自己的选择。你不快乐是因为选择错误的生活态度,如果你选择了正确的态度生活那么你就会快乐。佛陀非常注重“正念”,他视“正念”为一个基础、根本。什么是“正念”?它的标准是什么?依我之见,这就是标准:使你快乐的态度就是正确的态度-正念,而且这不是一个客观的标准尺度。使你不快乐,痛苦的态度就是错误的态度,这个标准尺度是主观的;你的快乐就是你的标准。

Take this whole life as a myth, as a story. It is one, but once you take it this way you will not be unhappy. Unhappiness comes out of too much seriousness. Try for seven days; for seven days remember only one thing – that the whole world is just a drama and you will not be the same again. Just for seven days! You are not going to lose much because you don’t have anything to lose.

 

You can try it. For seven days take everything as a drama, just as a show.

 

These seven days will give you many glimpses of your buddha nature, of your inner purity. And once you have the glimpse you cannot be the same again. You will be happy, and you cannot conceive of what type of happiness can happen to you because you have not known any happiness. You have known only degrees of unhappiness: sometimes you were more unhappy, sometimes less unhappy, and when you were less unhappy you called it happiness.

 

You don’t know what happiness is because you cannot know. When you have a concept of the world in which you are taking it very seriously, you cannot know what happiness is. Happiness happens only when you are grounded in this attitude, that the world is just a play.

 

So try this, and do everything in a very festive way, celebrating, doing an ‘act’ – not a real thing. If you are a husband, play, be a play husband; if you are a wife, be a play wife. Make it just a game. And there are rules, of course; any game to be played needs rules. Marriage is a rule and divorce is a rule, but don’t be serious about them. They are rules, and one rule begets another. Divorce is bad; because marriage is bad: one rule begets another! But don’t take them seriously, and then look how the quality of your life immediately changes.

 

Behave with your wife or husband or your children as if you are doing a part in a drama, and see the beauty of it. If you are playing a part you will try to be efficient, but you will not get disturbed. There is no need. You will do the part and go to sleep. But remember, it is a part, and for seven days continuously follow this attitude.

 

Then happiness can happen to you, and once you know what happiness is you need not move into unhappiness, because it is your choice. You are unhappy because you have chosen a wrong attitude towards life. You can be happy if you choose a right attitude. Buddha pays so much attention to ‘right attitude.’ He makes it a base, a foundation – right attitude. What is right attitude? What is the criterion? To me this is the criterion: the attitude that makes you happy is the right attitude, and there is no objective criterion. The attitude that makes you unhappy and miserable is the wrong attitude. The criterion is subjective; your happiness is the criterion.”
