KW_小我的王牌

 学员:你前面提到上主握有一张王牌,因为我们这具身体终将一死。

肯恩:对!最大的那张牌。

学员:那小我的王牌是什么?如果小我想让我们相信它说的是真的,而我们又知道自己迟早会死,那怎么能相信它呢?

肯恩:小我告诉我们的是,上主手中并没有王牌。它从不透露它到底要干嘛,因为它若真的说出来,我们就不会信它,也绝不会听它的。所以小我说,上主想杀了你,但我会救你。于是,它营造了一个将上主拒之门外的永恒世界。

继而它又打造了身体,说身体会保护你,因为上主进入不了身体,所以只要你乖乖待在身体里,就可保你安全无虞。但现在问题来了,那就是:身体起不到足够的防御作用。

课程说,这时候心灵又回去找小我:“等一下!你叫我向你寻求庇护、抵制上主,我照做了。你又叫我打造一具身体躲在里面,我也照做了。现在身体不管用了,我该怎么办?”

小我说:“很简单,你找我保护你,我也已经保护你了,是你自己没搞清楚状况。”此刻,小我会使出它的惯用伎俩,使我们忘记这个问题,并把整件事都屏蔽掉,从此就生活在死亡的恐惧中。因为在内心深处,我们知道上主握着一张王牌,总有一天,祂会跟我们摊牌的。

然而我们并不愿面对死亡,只是把它压下去,如同自古以来每个人所做的一样,只搞点表面文章,想办法让这个世界变得更好,让这具身体变得完美。就像你说的,这根本就不起作用。但小我从未告诉我们为什么不起作用。它总是说我们下次会做得更好,但其实永远都不会变得更好。

学员:似乎小我对待死亡的方式之一是把它变成某种宗教。

肯恩:我已经讲过很多次了。你想知道是哪些吗(开玩笑)?是的,世上所有形式化的宗教都有某种说法来解释死亡,还教你怎么对付小我的上主——也就是一个愤怒但仍然有爱心的上主。基督教中整套地狱的概念,就是小我用来吓唬你的。它说上主不仅会杀了你、惩罚你,让你的身体死亡,事后祂还不放过你,除非你和祂交换条件,许诺你会做个好孩子,乖乖做所有的祷告,做所有对的事,每天读圣经,遵守戒律……如果这些都做到了,也许上主会忘记你的罪,宽恕你,欢迎你回家。但你永远没有十足的把握。

1-09  The Ego’s Solution

 

 

Q.:  You said awhile back that God holds a trump card because we die. Well, what is..

 

Ken:  Yes, it’s the ace of spades.

 

Q.:  What is the ego’s - if the ego wants us to believe that what he’s telling us is true, then how can we believe it because we know we’re going to die.

 

Ken:  What the ego tells us of course is that God doesn’t hold a trump card. The ego never really tells us what it’s up to because if the ego really told us what it was up to, then we’d never believe it and never listen to it. So the ego says God wants to kill you but I’m going to save you. And so then what the ego does is make up a world and that’s the world which keeps God out and the world will be eternal.

 

And then it makes up a body and says the body is going to protect you because God can’t enter into a body. And so as long as you stay in the body, everything is fine. All right, now there’s a problem here, and the problem is that the body doesn’t work all that well as a defense.

 

And as the Course explains at this point, the mind then goes back to the ego and says, hey wait a minute. You told me that I should turn to you for protection against God, and so I did. And so you told me that I should make up a body and live in the body, and I did. And now the body isn’t going to work. What should I do?

 

And the ego says well it’s very, very simple. Turn to me for protection. And the ego says you don’t understand, I just did this with you already. And at this point, the ego does what it always does. It causes us to forget the question, and we just block the whole thing out and we live in mortal terror because somewhere deep within us, we do know that God holds the ace of spades and at one point, He’s going to call us on it.

 

But what we do is not deal with it, and we just push it down and go through the motions that we all do individually or we all have done throughout ages and ages and that is try to make this world a better place and try to make this body perfect. And it never works as you’re saying because it can’t work. But the ego never tells us why it doesn’t work, and it always tells us, next time we’re going to do it better except it never gets better.

 

Q.:  It seems as if one of the ways in which the ego deals with death is to make of it a religion of some sort.

 

Ken:  I think I’ve said that a number of times already. You want the names of the religions? All the formal religions of the world have some idea – some way of explaining death. And some way of trying to deal with this ego God who’s an angry God and yet still a loving God. And the whole notion of hell which you find in Christianity is a way of the ego saying not only is God going to punish you by killing you because the body dies but then He’s going to get you afterwards unless you make a bargain with Him and a deal. Be a good boy and a good girl and you say all your prayers and do all the right things and read the Bible everyday and do the commandments, etc., etc. And then if you do, maybe God then will forget about your sins, forgive you and welcome you home. But you’re never really sure.
