Wake up!

Wake up!

There are so many troubles in this world that many people ask Buddha the same question: “What should I do to stop worrying?”

Buddha always gives the same answer, “You can stop worrying if you let go.”

A man thought he was smarter than the Buddha and was not convinced, so he went to the Buddha and asked, “There are thousands of people in the world, and there are thousands of kinds of troubles. But the solution you give them is exactly the same. Isn’t that ridiculous?”

The Buddha was not angry, but asked the man, “Do you dream when you sleep at night?”

‘Of course, I do! ” the man replied.

“So, do you dream the same dreams every night?” asked the Buddha.

“Of course not,” the man said.

“You sleep a thousand times and dream a thousand dreams,” the Buddha smiled and said, “But the way to end a dream is the same. Wake up!”

When the man heard Buddha’s answer, he was speechless.

 醒過來

 這個世界上有太多煩惱,所以有許多人不約而同地問了佛祖一樣的問題:「我該怎麼做,才能不再煩憂?」

 佛祖給的答案都相同:「只要放下,你就能不再煩惱。」

 有個自以為聰明的人很不服氣,便專程去找佛祖,挑釁地問:「世上有千千萬萬個人,就有千千萬萬種煩惱。但是您給他們的解決方式都完全相同,那豈不是太可笑了?」

 佛祖沒有生氣,只是反問男子:「你晚上睡覺的時候,會做夢嗎?」

 「當然會!」男子回答。

 「那麼,你每天晚上做的夢,都是一樣的嗎?」佛祖又問。

 「當然是不一樣的。」

 「你睡了千千萬萬次,就做了千千萬萬個夢。」佛祖微笑地說:「但是要結束夢的方法,卻都是一樣的。那就是『醒過來』!」

 男子聽到佛祖的回答,啞口無言。
