懺悔與孝悌——文字剖析


(供成全班講解參考——例如止惡修善」之類的題目)
自古以夏文化,博大精深長。文字間的一笔一劃都可含蓋微妙的哲理。
」這個字的部首是「」,意味着要從心中來懺悔,因為一切的罪過都是潛意識的無明及妄想所塑造的。「」字上面「兩個人」,表示懺悔時要面對自己所對不起的人,向他表示悔過之意,並請求對方的寬恕和原諒,過失才能懺除。假如找不到對方,可以在佛前懺悔,這後來就演成「拜懺」——也就是在佛前懺悔的一種儀式,而基督教告解(Confession)具有相近的效果,道中早期則有露懺悔」的爐會儀式。接著下面是一個「」字,表示要痛改前非。非下是「」字,就是一毫的怨恨心都得徹底除。「」字最邊的「」字,是一候的防武器,代表人人之的心防都應該要抛到腦後,所以「」字安置在後方,人人假若都除掉彼此的心防,那就天下太平了
  」字,左邊是「」,右邊是「」和「」所合成的「」——也就是說:讓自己的」死去、而「」都有如死又投生到」胎中重新做人那,像是一隻神中每隔500年燃自己而重生的火鳳凰另外,「」字也意味着不但現在要懺悔,而且飯不忘,時時刻刻都要存有檢討、反省、改過的心念,才足以意。如果能做到這一步,相信每一個人的心都會很清涼。「」和「」是一起的,修道千不可「懺而不悔」,既是没有底地悔改過

字剖析詩:
小心莫把罪根栽,
兩人恩怨當釋懷,
痛改根鏟,
心防之腦後埋。
Word-analysis of Chinese text of “Confession”
Keep vigil against the sowing of sin’s seed,
Removing hostility is the advice both should heed,
Repenting for past misdeeds, root out even a single strand,
Unload the mental defense for peace throughout the land.
 「悔」字剖析詩
血汗淌,
落地小娃牽心腸,
子攀高幼成壯,
多虧愛底下扛,
死投胎,
過不憚改火鳳凰。
Word-analysis of Chinese text of “Repentance”
Accompanying side by side is Parents’ sweatful love,
Heart-stealing is the newborn descended from above,
Reaching to a height while the youth’s flame is strong,
Thanks to Maternal Love that supports you along,
A truthful heart repents with a new reborn face,
A regenerated phoenix fears not mending his ways.

孝悌之道
儒家尤其注重孝悌之道,以下是此二字的剖析詩。
 
「孝」字剖析詩:
Word-analysis of Chinese text of “Filial Piety”

一日計忙

上下堵墙,

丿鴻溝尋破,
倫常慰爹娘。
Parents focus on income with constancy for a decade,
With communication lessened, family love would fade,
Bridging the widened gap if one seeks firmly,
Towards the parents the son practices filial piety.

「悌」字剖析詩:
Word-analysis of Chinese text of “Brotherly Love”
一直在心田,
手足反目人倒
身相敬若體現
作揖
The Eight Virtues are all the while planted in one’s heart,
Human’s world will overturn if siblings draw apart,
Bow humbly to each other, if one realizes the value,
On foot, swing folded hands to greet the one before you.
