Recently, I went to Hong Kong. Although it was only a few days, I felt that I have made much improvement in cultivation.
In the past I often went to Hong Kong to clarify the facts (about the persecution of Falun Gong in China) and I was accustomed to do so face to face. In addition, a large amount of evil in other dimensions has been eliminated in Fa-rectification and the world's people are becoming more clear-headed. I have only one thought and it is to save sentient beings and clarify the facts to people with compassion. I am not attached to results for the people to quit the CCP (chinese communist party). Each day I have been able to persuade around 50 people to quit the CCP. After the parade of supporting 50 million people who have already quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, I went to the Jinzijing Square to clarify the facts. I did not see any posters or banners set up there. I guessed that maybe the practitioners were cleaning up after the parade. I did not meet any practitioners there and had no posters or banners. That night I did terrible in persuading people to quit the CCP. I came to understand that the one body's cooperation led to my success in persuading people to quit the CCP in the past, not my personal abilities.
Some practitioners dare not clarify the facts or do not know how to do it, so they hold the posters or send forth righteous thoughts. In my understanding, no matter what form they use, as long as they are there for saving sentient beings, they are adding a positive element to the one-body.
One day when I saw crowds of people and I was the only one clarifying the truth, I became a little anxious. So many people were waiting for the truth, how could I do it by myself? Therefore, I told fellow practitioners about it and hoped they could help. However, I immediately understood that I should not be attached to practitioners' actions and must let go of the attachment of being anxious. I should try to help people understand the facts. I progressed a little bit slowly, but I was not anxious to persuade them to quit the CCP. I treated people with compassion and my xinxing (heart and mind nature) met the requirement of the Fa, so when I persuaded people to quit the CCP, they did so. They quit the CCP one after another, and the result was much better. Another day when I came upon a group of people, I clarified the truth superficially because I was anxious and afraid that I would miss some people. As a result, many people listened to me, but few quit the CCP. I understood that no matter how many people we meet, we should not be affected. Instead of worrying about the number of people, I should clarify the facts patiently to effectively save sentient beings. If my xinxing can meet the requirements of the Fa, the sentient beings that should be saved will wait for me to tell them the facts.
I also acquired some understandings when I attended the parade supporting people to quit the CCP. That day two practitioners and I held a banner with a lot of Chinese characters. The practitioner who stood in the middle had no experience holding up banners. Her bag and body propped up the banner so that the banner had a bulge in the middle and looked distorted. I exchanged positions with her so that she stood on the left. However, afterwards, she only looked at the people on the left and walked too quickly, which made the banner lopsided. I reminded her several times, but she only glanced at the right and then forgot what I told her. After a while her daughter, also a practitioner, replaced her. Things went much better after that.
During the parade, the mother practitioner expressed that she wanted to hold the banner from time to time, but I did not let her. Later, her daughter let her hold the banner. I became worried and asked Master in my mind for help and how to handle this. I suddenly remembered what Master told us,
"Master affirms what Dafa disciples have done. As long as you are doing things out of a wish to validate the Fa and save sentient beings, I will affirm all that you do. And when you go do those things, there will be my Law Bodies or gods there to amplify it and make what you do yet more magnificent and extraordinary, and they will assist you. (Applause) You often fail to look at things this way, and as soon as you meet with challenges you go to Master. But when that difficulty comes up, it is precisely time for you to improve yourselves, establish mighty virtue, and bring about glory." ("Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference")
I understood that it does not matter if a practitioner does a particular thing well, as long as she has the wish to do Dafa work I should support her and appreciate her effort for saving sentient beings. If she had some deficiencies, I should correct her and combine our efforts to play a greater role.
I let go of the attachment of being anxious and only wanted to cooperate with her. In addition, I reminded her gently. As a result, she changed immediately and told another practitioner to hold the banner. Later, the three of us really held the banner very well. After the parade, my appreciation for her rose from the bottom of my heart.
I am so grateful for Master's mercy. Master always enlightens me for my improvement. Finally, I want to remind fellow practitioners in Taiwan: No matter how many projects there are in validating the Fa in Taiwan, we should not forget that Chinese people in Hong Kong are waiting for us to clarify the facts to them.
The above is only my current understanding. If anything is improper please kindly point it out.
