色即是空

我對色即是空, 看法如下;

色分物質外色與精神內色兩類.

物質外色

現代科學巳証明在最微小之處,物質的原子是以非物質的狀態存在,

H2O是水, HO的極微處卻是非物質的. 加上一切物質都離不開成住壞空, 變動不居的定律,

所以說物質的外色即是空是正确的.

精神內色

道德,美醜,善惡的標準因時空及個人的主觀愛惡而變異,

所以精神意識界的,更是空了.

但同時我們又不能否定我們眼前确有物質外色一杯水的存在, 及情緒上內色的喜怒哀樂, 所以又說”色空妙有, 或空中妙有.”

只要我們日常生活能對”空”有所認識,對”有” 不過於執著, 就能泰然舒坦了.

My understanding of

Form is emptiness—a Buddhist saying.

There are external material forms and internal spiritual forms.

External material forms;

From a quantum physics point of view, the smallest part of a molecule is non-material, H2O is water, but at the most minute part, H & O are all  non-material. Besides, nothing last forever, therefore materially, ” form is emptiness” is correct.

Internal spiritual forms.

The standard of beauty & ugliness, good & bad, right & wrong all varies from times & places and are affected by our subjective views, therefore  spiritually, ”Form is emptiness” is also correct.

But, at the same time we cannot deny that there is a glass of water in front of us, and that we do have feelings, thus the saying” In emptiness, there are wondrous forms”.

Once we recognize the true “emptiness” nature of all forms, we will be free  from the material & spiritual bondages.

Lap Lam

The Heart sutra was translated to Chinese about 1200 years ago, they used a word  similar to  sex for form, so even now most Chinese read form is emptiness as sex is emptiness.

Actually the word form is also incorrect, because feelings, thoughts have no forms.
