Practitioners in northern Taiwan hold a Fa study and experience sharing meeting every month. On October 16th, they gathered in Neili, Taoyuan, to study the teachings of Falun Dafa and shared how they looked within in the practice and clarified the facts about Falun Dafa.

Looking Within and Improving Oneself When Conflicts Arise
Ms. Wang and her younger brother worked in the same company. One day her brother told her, “It looks like you have an easy job.” At the moment, Ms. Wang thought to herself that it was because that she gained wisdom from practising Falun Dafa and hence worked more efficiently. However, she continued to think that her brother was jealous of her.
Later she recalled that Teacher said that the problem lies with the cultivator when they have conflicts with non-practitioners. She realised that she was not thinking for the well-being of her brother. He was the only son in the family and hence had to shoulder a lot of responsibility in taking care of their parents. He inevitably was stressed out about having to balance family responsibilities and his career. Ms. Wang believed that she should not only be tolerant, but should also be understanding of her brother’s tough situation and be forgiving of his resentment.
Look Within to Eliminate Bad Thoughts and to Better Coordinate with Others
Ms. Ou shared that a practitioner should act like a practitioner in everyday life and be on good terms with the people around them. This way when there are Falun Dafa activities or Shen Yun performances, people will be willing to approach the practitioners and to learn more about Falun Dafa. She also talked about her understanding of cooperating with others. If practitioners can look within in the face of conflict, and study the Fa with others, peacefully and rationally exchange understandings, they can smooth the gaps between practitioners, dissolve the conflicts, and do things well.
Promoting The Epoch Times and Shen Yun
Ms. Huang teaches in an elementary school. She promotes The Epoch Times at her school and the school administration and the parents are very supportive of her efforts. She said that the benign messages in The Epoch Times can help curb disorderly conduct in society and help the students, parents, and teachers see the beauty of Falun Dafa.
Ms. Huang once showed her first graders The Epoch Times’ report on a Falun Dafa activity to support the 100 million people who quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The students began to ask about the persecution of Falun Gong. She then naturally clarified the facts to them. When Shen Yun Performing Arts came to Taiwan, 34 faculty and staff members from the school purchased tickets to the show because they read the reports about Shen Yun in The Epoch Times.
Helping Fellow Practitioners with Compassion
Mr. Fu shared experiences and said that practitioners should help each other selflessly and treat each other’s shortcomings with great tolerance. This way the effort in clarifying the truth will be more powerful.
Once practitioner A who clarified the facts through online chatting was having trouble getting through a critical test. He refused to let other practitioners help. Many gave up trying to help him. However, practitioner B believed that A should be saving people online instead of struggling with finding a job. B visited A every morning and invited him to join the morning exercise session. Finally, A was moved by B and resumed his daily exercise and Fa study routines. Practitioner A later found a job, solved his financial problem, and continued to help people learn the truth about Falun Dafa on the Internet.
