如授予榮譽學位時的介紹,Deepak Chopra擁有非凡才智及傑出能力。職業生涯中,他藉由自身天賦造福數百萬人,我們十分幸運他同意今天為我們舉行畢業演講,很榮幸向大家介紹Deepak Chopra博士。(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

Margaret Drugovich校長,哈特威克學院校董會,來賓、老師、教職員、家長,最重要的是-2013年畢業生,這是獻給你們的演講。

 

親愛的畢業生,今天,當你慶祝這個生命中重要的里程碑,展開人生旅程的新階段,我希望你們思考生命本身這份禮物。生命的本質就是意識。此外,人類生命被視為生物進化的巔峰,不僅是意識,也包含自我意識。這個星球的生物當中,人類不僅擁有意識,也有能力察覺意識的產生,意識到我們的意識。這種自我意識蘊含了我們的潛力和力量,引領我們未來的進化及文明發展。生物進化可用「適者生存」這句話總結,但隨著人口過剩及資源過度消耗,未來將屬於「智者生存」時代。對人類未來而言,無法避免的是,智慧將成為這個星球上健康及生命延續的新標準。智慧是孕育生命各層面的知識,不僅對我們來說,對後代子孫來說亦是如此,對往後世世代代的人類來說皆是如此。當今時代常被稱為資訊時代,這個時代的特徵是科學及技術的貢獻,例如分子醫學奇蹟、細胞功能即時影像、全球資訊的即時獲取及社交網路。然而,儘管全球科技日新月異,矛盾的是,我們依然飽受戰爭及恐怖主義所苦。世上50%人口處於極度貧困狀態,還有不可逆轉的氣候變遷及日益嚴重的社會和經濟不公。此外,人類面臨嚴重營養失調。世上一半人口飽受飢餓所苦,另一半則飽受肥胖所苦,導致炎症性疾病,增加心血管疾病風險,包括多種癌症;無法溫飽者則死於免疫功能疾病及傳染病。資訊革命並未帶來解決人類健康危機所需的智慧。如果人類擁有在地球上進行大規模自我毀滅的力量,那就是現在。如果發生這種情況,原因在於我們任由科技發展超越人類情感與精神發展。核擴散、生物戰、生態破壞、物種滅絕,污染我們的空氣、河流及水源,及維繫人類生命和所有生命的食物,這都是迫在眉睫的威脅。但正如其他關鍵轉型階段,儘管一方面災難步步逼近,另一方面也存在徹底重建的機會,孕育出遠超出過去想像的偉大事物。

 

今天,我想詢問各位年輕朋友們,你們是人類未來的希望,你們是未來的領導者,我想借用聖雄甘地的話問你們:「改變世界,你願意從自身開始做起嗎?」事實上,社會或世界不可能改變,除非你的內在發生改變。今天,我希望你們面對一個基本真理。今天,我希望你們思考,沒有任何「你」可獨立於這個世界。生命的禮物,你的自我意識,是內在轉變和智慧的關鍵,相反地,這也是改變世界的方法。今天,我希望你們瞭解,你就是世界,你的意識轉變就是世界的未來,這種自我轉變就是我們星球生存所需的智慧。

 

我正邁入生命的秋天,你們正值生命的春天,我想與你們分享七個我所學到的、和自我意識有關的訣竅,希望對你有所幫助。無論你選擇何種職業,無論生命和命運將帶領你前往何方,身為人類未來領袖的你們。

 

訣竅一,盡可能成為最佳傾聽者。學習以身體部位傾聽,還有內心的感受、大腦的邏輯和靈魂的寂靜。當你仔細傾聽時,思索以下問題:我觀察到什麼?我感受到什麼?此刻的需要是什麼?滿足這些需要的最佳方法是什麼?

 

訣竅二,與朋友、同事及日常接觸的人建立情感紐帶,瞭解每個人都是關係網的一部分,由愛心、善心、同情心、同理心及快樂編織而成。情感紐帶可創造有效團隊合作,沒有不可能的事,因為你們擁有服務、貢獻及成功的共同願景,因為你們的優勢和才能相輔相成。

 

訣竅三,擴展你的意識,瞭解所有人類都有不同層次的需求。最初是生存與安全的需求,逐步擴展到不同階段,包括愛、歸屬感、自尊、藉由逐步實現值得追求的目標獲得成功、創造性表達、更高層次的意識及自我實現。當你擴展自我意識,學習駕馭精神天賦,它以意圖、直覺、創意、想像力及有意識的選擇等形式呈現。

 

訣竅四,切記行動的重要性,學習以行動為導向,瞭解化為行動的愛具有無比力量。記住,沒有行動的愛毫無意義,沒有愛的行動不值一提。

 

訣竅五,為自己各方面的幸福負責。你的幸福涵蓋生活每個方面-你的事業、你的社交、你的人際關係、你的社區及經濟成就。花點時間休息和玩樂,與家人和朋友相處,保持運動習慣,藉由健康食物滋養身體。

 

訣竅六,學會自我尊重,學習不受他人意見左右,無論好壞。意識到自我存在的力量,別讓自己分心。瞭解你的人生目標,以及你希望為社會付出的貢獻。

 

最後是訣竅七,瞭解真實的自我。真實的自我並非你的自我形象,並非你和他人在你身上所貼的標籤,真實的自我是自我存在的最深處核心,超越任何標籤、定義及限制。所有傳統智慧都告訴我們,人類的精神領域充滿無限可能性,充滿無限創造力、愛、喜悅、慈悲及深刻的平靜,瞭解你能給予世界的只有蘊含在自我存在最深處核心的東西。記住,只有在你擁有平靜時,才能創造和平;只有在你學會愛時,才能創造充滿愛的世界。

 

我懇請各位,千萬別隨著歲月流逝而喪失理想。理想仰賴於你意識到可創造的美好及體現它的力量。你們擁有這份潛力,創造更和平、公正、永續、健康、快樂的世界。我想起約翰.藍儂七歲時小學老師給他的作業。他和同學被要求撰寫一篇短文,描述長大後想成為什麼樣的人。約翰.藍儂寫下:他希望永遠幸福。當老師抱怨約翰不瞭解作業的意義時,約翰的母親要他告訴老師說,他才不明白生命的意義。但我們對幸福到底有何瞭解?最近出現許多關於幸福動力學的研究,大多數人認為,如果他們成功實現目標,或擁有良好的人際關係,或身體健康,他們就能得到幸福,事實上恰好相反。如果你是幸福的人,往往擁有健康的習慣、擅於培養人際關係、擁有成功的人生。

 

現今社會科學家描繪出他們所謂的幸福公式,今天我有機會與大家分享幸福公式。幸福公式是:H = S + C + V。H代表幸福,S代表大腦的設定點,C代表生活條件,V代表自願選擇。「S」代表大腦的設定點,指的是我們的感知機制。根據我們的人生觀,每個人的幸福光譜都存在某些半固定位置,幸福的人看到機會,不幸福的人看到問題。幸福的人擁有持續上調的幸福設定點,或移向更大的幸福,藉由對限制性信念的自我反省,設定點決定了日常生活中50%的幸福體驗。公式中的「C」代表生活條件,主要是指物質成就及個人財富,它決定了日常生活中約12%的幸福體驗。如果你中了樂透,將欣喜若狂幾個月,但一年後,你將回到設定點。自願選擇是幸福公式的第三部分,代表日常生活中的選擇,為了個人樂趣所做的選擇,可帶來短暫幸福;有目的及意義的無私選擇可帶來內心的滿足,例如使他人快樂。有意義的關係將帶來勝過一切的長久幸福。因此物質享受或許能讓你感到幸福,但記得嗎?這只佔幸福體驗的12%。要真正獲得幸褔,你必須擴展意識,克服自我限制的信念,選擇無私的行動或為他人服務、使他人幸福的方法,這將帶來真正持久的幸福和智慧。

 

最後,今天,相較於其他日子,更該記得感恩;感恩將開啟通往豐富意識的大門。表達你們的感激之情,尤其對父母、老師和同學,及所有幫助你抵達這道人生門檻的人。現在你已準備踏上英雄之旅,英雄的追尋之路。祝好運,一切順利(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

About the transcript
Today as you celebrate this major milestone in your life and commence a new stage of your life journey, I ask you to reflect on the gift of life itself. And life, in essence, is nothing but awareness. Furthermore human life, considered the pinnacle of biological evolution, is not just awareness, but self-awareness. Amongst creatures on this planet, we human beings are not only aware; we have the capacity to be aware that we are aware, to be conscious of our consciousness. In that self-awareness lies our potential and power to direct our own future evolution and the future evolution of civilization.
 
Biological evolution has been summed up in the phrase of "survival of the fittest", but with overpopulation and overconsumption of resources, the future belongs to "survival of the wisest". It is imperative for the future of humanity that wisdom becomes the new criterion for sustainable life on this planet. And wisdom is that knowledge that nurtures life in all its dimensions not only for us but also for the generations that follow us.
 
Today's age is frequently referred to as the Information Age. The hallmarks of this age are the gifts of science and technology that have created the miracles of molecular medicine, real-time imaging of cellular function, instant accessibility of global knowledge, and social networks. Yet despite this emerging global brain, paradoxically we are beset with the same scourges of war and terrorism, radical poverty in 50% of the world’s population, irreversible climate change, along with deepening social and economic injustice! Furthermore, humanity suffers from massive malnutrition in which half the world suffers from hunger and the other half from obesity leading to inflammatory disorders, increasing the risk of chronic illnesses including many types of cancer and cardiovascular diseases while the hungry die from compromised immune function and infectious diseases. The information revolution has not led to the wisdom needed to solve our world crisis in health and well-being.
 
If ever humanity had the power of mass self-extinction on planet earth, it is today. And if it happens will be because we allowed our emotional and spiritual evolution to be outpaced by the evolution of our science and technology. Nuclear proliferation, biological warfare, eco destruction, the extinction of species and the poisoning of our atmosphere, our rivers and waters and the very food that sustains our life and all life loom before us as imminent threats. But just as in other critical phases of transformation, while there is disaster looming on one hand, there is on the other hand the potential to create a radical reorganization into something much greater than was conceived of before.
 
Today, I ask you my young friends, you who are the future hope of humanity, you who are the future leaders of the world; today, I ask you what Mahatma Gandhi once asked, "Can you be the change you want to see in the world?"
 
In fact, there can be no social or world transformation unless there is your own inner transformation. Today, I ask you to face a fundamental truth. Today, I ask you to consider that there is no ‘you’ that is separate from the world. The gift of life, your own self-consciousness is your key to inner transformation and wisdom, and that in turn is how you will transform the world. Today, I ask you to acknowledge that you are the world and that your transformation of consciousness will be the future of the word. This self-transformation is the wisdom for our planet’s survival.
 
As I enter the autumn of my life and you the springtime of yours, I want to leave you with seven skills in self-awareness that I have learned and that I hope will serve you well no matter what profession you choose, or where your life and destiny take you.
 
Skill # 1 Become the best listener you can be. Learn to listen with the instruments of the body, the feelings of the heart, the logic of the mind and the stillness of your soul. As you listen deeply, reflect on the following questions: What am I observing? What am I feeling? What is the need of the moment? What is the best way to fulfill this need?
 
Skill#2 Bond emotionally with friends, family, professional colleagues and those you interact with daily. Understand that each of us is part of a web of relationships that is nurtured through love, kindness, compassion, empathy and joy. Emotional bonds create effective teamwork where nothing is impossible because you have a shared vision for service, contribution and success and because you complement each other’s talents and strengths.
 
Skill # 3 Expand your awareness by knowing that all human beings have a hierarchy of needs that start with survival and safety and progressively expand through stages that include love and belonging, true self esteem, success as in the progressive realization of worthy goals, creative expression, higher consciousness and self-actualization. As you expand your awareness learn to harness your spiritual gifts that come in the form of the powers of intention, intuition, creativity, imagination & conscious choice making.
 
Skill #4 Remember the importance of action. Learn to be action oriented and know that there is no power higher than love in action. Remember that love without action is meaningless and action without love is irrelevant.
 
Skill# 5 Assume responsibility for your own well being in all its various facets. Your well being encompasses every aspect of your life - your career, your social interactions, your personal relationships, your community and your financial success. Take time to rest and play, to be with your family and friends, to exercise and nourish your body with healthy food.
Skill# 6 Empower your self with true self-esteem. Learn to be independent of the good and bad opinion of others. Recognize the power of presence. Do not allow yourself to be distracted. Know your life purpose and the contribution you want to make to society.
 
Skill # 7 Know your true self. Your true self is not your self-image that is dependent on the labels you and others have given yourself. Your true self is the innermost core of your being that is beyond all labels, definitions & limitations. All the wisdom traditions tell us that the human spirit is a field of infinite possibilities, a field of infinite creativity love compassion joy and profound equanimity. Know you can only give to the world that which you possess in that innermost core of your being. Remember that you will create peace only when you are peaceful and create a loving world only when you have learned to love.
 
I entreat you to not lose your idealism with the passage of years. That idealism is connected to your knowingness of the good that can be created and the power to manifest it. In you lies the potential for a more peaceful, just, sustainable, healthier and happier world. Remember that the goal of all other goals is to be happy. I am reminded today of an assignment that John Lennon was given by his elementary school teacher when he was seven years old. He and his classmates were asked to write a short description of whom they wanted to be when they grew up. John Lennon wrote down that he wanted to be always happy. When his teacher complained that John did not understand the assignment, John's mother told him to tell the teacher that he did not understand life.
 
But what do we really know about happiness? Recently there has been a lot of research on the dynamics of happiness. Most people think that if they are successful in achieving their goals or have good relationships or if they are healthy, they will be happy. In fact it is the other way around. If you are happy person you are likely to have healthy habits, and nurturing relationships and great success in life. Social scientists describe what they describe the Happiness formula: H=S+C+V
 
H stands for happiness
S stands for set point in the brain
C stands for conditions of living
V stands for voluntary choices
 
“S” stands for the set point in the brain and refers to our mechanisms of perception. We all have a semi-fixed place on the happiness spectrum based on our outlook on life. Happier people see the opportunities, where unhappy people see problems. The set point for happiness can be upregulated, or shifted toward greater happiness, through self-reflection on limiting beliefs. The set point determines 50% of our happiness experience on a daily bases. The ‘C’ in the formula is the conditions of living and refers mainly to material success and personal wealth. It determines about 12% of your daily happiness experience. If you win the lottery you will be extremely happy for a few months, but after one year you will return to your set point. Voluntary choices represents choices that we make on a daily bases. Choices for personal pleasure bring transient happiness, while selfless choices bring inner fulfillment through purpose and meaning, e.g. by making other people happy meaningful relationships bring more permanent happiness. So to be happy it’s fine to have material comforts around you, but that will only account for 12% of your happiness. To really be happy you need to expand awareness and overcome your self-limiting beliefs and then choose selfless actions, or ways to be of service to others. This leads to true and lasting happiness and wisdom.
 
Finally today, more than any other day, remember to be grateful. Gratitude opens the door to abundance consciousness. Express your gratitude today particularly to your parents, teachers and fellow students, all who have helped bring you to this threshold of life.
 
You are now ready to embark on the hero's journey, the hero’s quest. Good luck and God speed.
