恐怖份子该被剿灭吗?

 

学员问: 肯定是我层次混淆吧! 恐怖主义的阴影一直在心头挥之不去。 恐怖份子就像希特勒,不只针对特定群体,连对自己人也能痛下杀手。因此,我认为不管他们是不是集体意识的投射,都必须被肃清,就像对待法西斯主义者一样,绝不手软。据我所知,那些出家人和信仰团体也曾在大屠杀时祈求和平,但没有战争哪来的和平?尽管这种和平也只是相对的。想当然耳,这个问题让我已经分裂的心灵像橙子瓣那样更加分裂了。

 

肯恩:你对恐怖份子的看法,正是为这个难题解套的关键。《奇蹟课程》告诉我们,知见有正见与妄见之分;同样一种行为(形式),既可以出自正见,也可以出自妄见(内涵)。按你刚才的说法,显然已将恐怖份子及法西斯主义者视为加害者,代表你已经认小我为师了。然而,小我从不让我们知道,只要相信了它的思想体系,和平就不再长久,取而代之的则是永无止境的冲突。因为它就是奠基于非此即彼、杀人或被杀的分裂原则。为了维系自身的存在,小我就必须投射出某种外在敌人,而我们则顺理成章地认为只要将这个人或团体逐出自己的生活之外,问题就能解决。但事实真的是如此吗?如你所见,战争后的和平总是局部而不持久的。这种状况会一再重复,直到我们能真正转移焦点,向内检视这套疯狂的思想体系,重新反思自己认小我为师的选择。《奇蹟课程》最能发挥大用之处,就是训练我们看出生命经验和思想体系之间的连结。这也是为什么耶穌告诉我们:为此,不要设法去改变世界,而应决心改变你对世界的看法。」(T-21.in.1:7)

 

总之,我们心中这套疯狂的思想体系,才是一切问题的症结。是它告诉我们,和平可以藉由战争实现,仇恨能够透过杀戮止息。 《课程》则为我们提供了 另一条路」,它的前提乃是:众生一体,皆是上主之子,没有例外。就算是恐怖分子和法西斯主义信徒,也和其他人一样,都是圣子奥体的一部分。因此,在心里定他们的罪,其实就跟定自己和耶穌的罪没有两样。若能以此慧见为出发点,便能步上正道而不会偏离,从而给自己一个终结心中冲突和痛苦的机会。于是,你对问题的处理方式有所不同了。真诚的疗愈之愿成了你的行为动力,而非视那些恶人为动乱和恐惧的源头,欲除之而后快。你不会否认其他人的小我,但你会看到他们的小我和自己的并无二致。纵使小我展现出不同的形态,内涵却始终如一。你也会深刻地了解到,暴力、仇恨的行为源自于被痛苦折磨的心灵,由于这痛苦似乎难以忍受,而必须向外投射。

 

怀著这样的悲悯之心,真实的正义便能透过你来实践。 你的眼中不再有赢家和输家、受害者和加害者,而能够从更宽广的角度去看,什么才是对所有人最好的:

我敢保证,圣灵的方案永远带给人皆大欢喜的结局。这是千真万确的,因祂从不要求任何人牺牲。任何解决方案只要有一方受到一点损失,不仅解决不了问题,还会雪上加霜,使问题变得更加严重,更为棘手,也更不公平。……正义,意味没有任何一方会输,这一原则乃是本课程的要旨。」                              (T-25.IX.3:1-3; 5:4)

 

这就是耶穌所说的将正义回归于爱」之真谛。

 

最后提一下,想要更深入了解这个主题,以下的资料会很有帮助。〈正文〉第二十五章的最后四节,为我们对比了世间「复仇式正义」和充满爱与慈悲且无所不包的「天堂正义」两者的差别 (T-25.VI,VII,VIII,IX)。〈练习手册〉第二百课:「除了上主的平安以外,没有其他的平安存在 (W-pI.200)」,则特别对「外求的世间和平」及「上主之子本具的内在和平」作了区分。这一点很重要,因为平安若来自上主,必有合一的作用」(W-pI.200.11:6)。我们的有声书《奇迹的慈悲》、《仁慈的特质》、《关于邪恶的问题》及《正义回归于爱》也探讨了相关主题。我们也建议你去看主题索引,在战争」条目下方还有更多问答集可以参考。

Q #1237: I know that I must be lost in level confusion, but terrorism has been on my mind. As did Hitler, they target some people but also kill their own. Regardless of whether they are a projection of our collective mind, I do think that they must be purged in the same way that all fascists must. I read about how monks and other devout groups prayed for the peace during the holocaust, but peace (relative though it was) came only with war. Of course, this is causing my already split mind to separate like orange sections.

 

A: Your perception of terrorists is the critical factor in resolving your dilemma; and as the Course teaches, perception can be either right-minded or wrong-minded—the same behavior (form) can flow from either the right mind or the wrong mind (the content). From what you say, you apparently perceive terrorists and fascists as victimizers, which means you have chosen the ego as your teacher. The ego never lets us in on this, but perpetual conflict, not enduring peace, is the inevitable outcome of its thought system, because it rests on the divisive principles of one or the other, kill or be killed. There must always be an external enemy of some kind for the ego itself to survive, and we are thus lured into thinking that if we can just get this person or this group out of our lives, everything will be better. But as you have observed, the peace that follows war is partial and never lasts. This will always be the case until we turn inward and see the insanity of this thought system, and then reconsider our choice for the ego as our teacher. This is where A Course in Miracles is most helpful, as its focus is on training us to make the connection between our experience and the thought system we have identified with in our minds. This is why Jesus tells us, “Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world” (T-21.in.1:7).

The insane belief system in our minds that claims peace can be attained through war and that we can stop hostility and hatred by killing people is the problem. The “other way” presented in the Course rests on the premise that we are all one as God’s Son, and that there are no exceptions to this. Terrorists and fascists are part of the Sonship the same as everyone else, and therefore to condemn them in our minds is to condemn ourselves, and Jesus as well. If this vision is your point of departure, you are giving yourself a better chance of ending the conflict and pain in your own mind, for you would be proceeding on the basis of truth, not its denial. Then you would approach problems differently. Your response would be motivated by a sincere desire to heal, rather than a desire to eradicate the evildoers in the world, whom you see as the cause of unrest and fear. You would not deny the ego in anyone, but you would see it as the same ego in you (in content, not necessarily in form), and you would realize that violent, hateful behavior is coming from a mind that is itself tortured with pain and conflict that seems unbearable and therefore must be projected.

 

From this place of compassion in your mind, you would thus be a channel for true justice, which does not see winners and losers, victims and victimizers, but rather, from a larger perspective, what is best for everyone:

“Be certain any answer to a problem the Holy Spirit solves will always be one in which no one loses. And this must be true, because He asks no sacrifice of anyone. An answer which demands the slightest loss to anyone has not resolved the problem, but has added to it and made it greater, harder to resolve and more unfair … The principle that justice means no one can lose is crucial to this course” (T-25.IX.3:1-3; 5:4).

That is what Jesus means by “returning justice to love.”

 

The last four sections in Chapter 25 help us understand the basis of the world’s notion of vengeful justice, in contrast to Heaven’s justice, which is rooted in all-inclusive love and compassion (T-25.VI,VII,VIII,IX). Lesson 200, “There is no peace except the peace of God” (W-pI.200), is also important for understanding the major differences between the peace we seek in the world and the peace we find within our minds—our natural inheritance as God’s Son. “For peace is union, if it be of God” (W-pI.200.11:6). These issues are the subject, as well, of our audio sets, “The Compassion of the Miracle,” “The Quality of Mercy,” “The Problem of Evil,” and “Justice Returned to Love.” We also direct you to the Index of Topics, where you will find additional questions and answers under the listing, War.
