蓮生活佛 > 師尊文集 > 255_夢中的翅膀 > 夢中的翅膀（序）
I originally write an article daily with hardly any interruption in this life, but April and May 2016, I broke off for 2 months, didn't write a word.
Real sorry! I became ill!
My body is extremely dehydrated, and mostly in drowsiness in the 24 hours, life's rhythm big chaos.
During this period of illness, I only can do is in my heart, maintaining everlasting bright self nature.
This is teaching of my Guru, the 16th Karmapa.
In this dream like shell of sickness, I can only maintain [Bright self nature], others all not important.
My wish at this time is:
When I am ill. Wish that sentient beings are healthy and without illness.
When I am suffering. Wish that sentient beings are without suffering and troublesome thoughts.
When I am in pain. Wish that sentient beings are without aches and pains.
This is my daily work:
Cultivate dharma. Write book. Draw pictures.
Each book is my spiritual perception, and I piled each up.
Not only equal to my body only.
Must wait for building.
Must wait for High level building.
Book represent my Heart.
Write a poem!
Poem's title: Cannot sleep forever.
我不是醉 I am not drunk
而是沉沉的睡 Only sleeping heavily
昏昏茫茫之中 In confused and lost state
仍然記得 Still can remember
我流的是 I am streaming
眾生的眼淚 sentient beings' tears
黑色 Black colour
灰色 Grey colour
我在我的心中點上了燭 I lighted candle within my heart
雖然光明搖曳 Althought brightness flickers
我雖憔悴 Although I am wan & sallow/haggard
但仍尋找 but still looking for
剩下的一點青翠 the remaining single bit of green pasture
花蕊要開放 Flower's stamen or pistil want to bloom
翅膀要飛 Wings want to fly
那光明的月亮 That bright moon
永遠不墜 Won't ever droop
In recent speech, GM Lu stressed the important of cultivation as one that is a continuous practice, without breaks in between or forever. :)
If He has not been cultivating diligently all through this 40 plus years, can He maintain An Everlasting Brightness in His Self Nature?
And, He also explained this Self Nature as One's own Buddha Nature and to Merge into Divine Light at time of demise for attainment in Buddha Land.
So, do consider how to Truly start cultivating as shared by GM Lu!
Remember He said you have 5 chances of leaving the 6 realms of transmigration?
