希求解脱 : 无定过患

没有一定的。这个本来很亲爱的,到下一生变成怨敌,本来怨敌又变成功亲爱的。上面说「父转为子」是颠倒,这个颠倒还是亲,可是有很多怨家仇敌转过来了。那我们是不是也一天到晚,唉呀,你跟我好,我跟你怨,是毫无意思、毫无意思。短短的几十年完了以后,到下一次谁晓得谁是谁?这个时候都不是我们应该忙的事情,不是我们应该忙的事情。我们如果了解了这个,那一无可凭。所以我们第一了解,现在世间的亲爱,一切无可凭信处啊!所以这些东西,「是故全无可凭信处」。

【Mind Intent on Liberation】 -  The fault of uncertainty

There is no certainty.  Those who are your close relatives could become your enemies in the next lifetime.  Those who are your enemies could become your close relatives.  It says that "your father becomes your son."  This is a reversal in the roles  but this reversal still maintains a close relationship.  However, there are many times when your enemies become your relatives.  Doesn't this happen to us all the time?  Ah! you are on good terms with me and I am on bad terms with you.  These are all utterly meaningless, utterly meaningless.  After a few short decades are gone, who knows who is going to be who?   At this time, these are the things that we shouldn't be busy with.  These are things we shouldn't be busy with.  If we understand this, then we know there is nothing that you can count on.  Therefore, we should first understand that for the close relationships that we have in this mundane world, there is nothing that we can count on!  Hence for these, "there is nothing that you can count on."
