眼光

「你們不要論斷人,免得你們被論斷。」(太71
   
蘇東坡和佛印和尚是好朋友,常常彼此嘲弄作謔。有一次兩人在一起坐禪,入定一會兒,蘇東坡開口問佛印說﹕「你看我坐禪的樣子如何?」佛印回答﹕「你看起來好像一尊佛。」蘇東坡暗自竊喜。過一下子佛印問說﹕「你看我坐禪像什麼?」蘇東坡故意氣他就說﹕「你看起來好像一堆牛糞。」回家後蘇東坡得意的告訴妹妹,如何把佛印好好嘲弄了一番。蘇子妹忍不住笑出來說﹕「人家心中有佛,所以看你像佛;你心中有糞,所以看人如糞,輸的是你呀!」

我們看人都是從自己的角度去看,往往在心中已經有了一個定型的樣子。既便對陌生人,也有所謂的第一印象。這種偏差會把人的理性扭曲,而失去正確的判斷力。如同戴著有色眼鏡,看不清本來的形象。有人看布希總統正直果敢,是不向惡勢力低頭的領袖;有人看他剛愎自負,是偏袒有錢人的牛仔。這完全是出發點的不同,只接受自己認同的觀點,而造成偏差愈來愈大的結果。與人相處讓成見累積,最後在自己心中將對方定型,就很難更改。夫妻之間也是如此,常常挑對方的毛病,最後老是將缺點放大,就以為對方一定是這樣的人。

有一個農夫失去一頭牛,就發現鄰居總是賊頭賊腦的,怎麼看都像一個偷牛賊。有一天牛自己走回來了,他再看鄰居,怎麼看都覺的對方像一個老實人。主耶穌叫我們不可以論斷人,不是指我們嘴上不批評人,而是叫我們心中不要去累積偏見。主耶穌活在我們心裏的意思是,我們要從主耶穌的眼光去看世人;祂在心中會怎樣的想,祂在地上會怎樣的做。許多時候我們做不到,是因為我們沒有來親近主,讓祂在我們心中做主。否則用祂眼光去看人,都是可愛的人。

His Sight

  

  “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”? (Matt.7: 1)

   Su Don-Pou and monk Fou-In were good friends.  They often ridiculed each other.  One time they were to sit in deep meditation.  After a while Don-Pou asked Fou-In: “How do I look like in meditation?”  Fou-In answered: “You look like a Buddha.”  Don-Pou smiled secretively.  Then Fou-In asked: “How do I look?”  Don-Pou replied: “You look like a pile of cow dung.”  After Don-Pou went home, he told his sister how he got Fou-In today.  His sister replied: “He has Buddha in his heart, so he saw you as Buddha.  You have cow dung in your heart, so you saw him as cow dung.”

    Normally, we see others through our own perspective.  We already have a fixed pattern in our minds.  We can judge even strangers based on first impression.  This approach will twist our rationale and loss the right judgment, just likes wearing a colored glass.  Some people consider President Bush is a brave and justice leader who does not compromise with evil.  Some consider him as a ruthless cowboy favoring rich people.  If one just accepts what agrees with his thinking, the deviation will be accumulated.  It is hard to change once the bias is established.   Husband and wife relationship is also like this.  If one always concentrate on the spouse’s shortcoming and magnify it, sooner and later, one will make oneself to believe the spouse is that kind of person.

1.     A farmer lost a cow.  He noticed that his neighbor was behaving suspiciously and looked like a cow thief.  One day the cow came back to him by itself.  Then he looked his neighbor, the more be looked, the more the neighbor like an honest farmer.  Jesus taught us not to judge others.  He means not just criticize others through words, but not to accumulate prejudice in heart.  We should let Jesus live inside of us, see the world through the eyes of him.  What he would think, what he would do.  Many times we cannot do it, because we do not want to be close to him and let him be the Lord in our hearts.  When we see through his eyes everyone is lovely.
