聽神談【有關莎翁「To be, or not to be」的意思】
正如我先前對你們說過多次的，死亡並不存在(death does not exist，即根本沒有死亡這回事。)。這裡用「死亡」這個字是指你們——不論是個人或集體——所稱的生命終結。
To be, or not to be? That is the question.
「有沒有 being 你真正的自己想成為(be)的，才是重點所在。」
Of course, as I have said to you many times, death does not exist. The word is used here in the context within which you have understood it. It is used to mean the end of life as you have known it, individually and collectively.
Within the context of the human adventure, what shall the life experience be? Indeed, what shall humans be? Or shall humans be at all?
Your wonderful writer Shakespeare said it perfectly.
To be, or not to be?
That is the question.

啟動這(Being)創造過程（沒錯，這正是……創造的過程〔 the process of creation 〕）的方法，是先看清你想要「有」的是什麼，問你自己如果你「有」那個東西時你會「是(being)」什麼狀態，然後直接 being 那狀態。這即「是(be)—做(do)—有(have)」的範型。
人生中，你並非必須去做(have to do)任何事。
全部都只是一個「你 being 什麼」的問題。(It is all a question of what you are being.)」。
尼：他沒有搞懂他目前的「不是很快樂 (not being very happy) 」跟他「沒有時間、沒有錢或沒有愛」之間的關係。
尼：他發現…以「being 快樂」為出發(by“being happy”to begin with) ，他擁有他「是快樂的」所需的一切東西！
正是如此。事先決定「你選擇自己 being 什麼」，會使你產生那樣的經驗。
To be,or not to be.That is the question.
「是否 being 你想 being 的狀態，才是問題的關鍵。」
The way to set this creative process (and that's what this is… the process of creation) into motion is to look at what it is you want to “have,” ask yourself what you think you would “be” if you “had” that, then go right straight to being.
In this way you reverse the way you've been using the Be-Do-Have paradigm—in actuality, set it right—and work with, rather than against, the creative power of the universe.
Here is a short way of stating this principle: In life, you do not have to do anything.
It is all a question of what you are being.
This is one of the three messages I will touch on again at the end of our dialogue. I will close the book with it.
For now, and to illustrate this, think of a person who just knows that if he could only have a little more time, alittle more money, or a little more love, he'd be truly happy.
Neale: He does not get the connection between his “not being very happy” right now and his not having the time, money, or love he wants.
That's right. On the other hand, the person who is “being” happy seems to have time to do everything that's really important, all the money that's needed, and enough love to last a lifetime.
Neale: He finds he has everything he needs to “be happy” … by “being happy” to begin with!
Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience.
“To be, or not to be. That is the question.”
