Do Not Go Astray

A few days ago, my husband and I went shopping for a handbag. It was to be used to carry truth-clarification materials. While shopping for the handbag, I realized that Master is with us every moment and all the time. Master clearly sees a Dafa practitioner's every thought and every action. If we show that we are not grounded in the Fa, Master kindly gives us hints, allowing us to make timely corrections.

My husband and I arrived at a store. Looking at the beautiful bags of various designs and colors, I forgot the purpose for which we were buying a handbag. (In actuality, I did not even notice the attachment that showed up.) I was unable to decide on a selection. I loved every one of them. (How strong the attachment was!) I finally narrowed the selection down to two. I then settled on one of them after further comparison. I felt that the color of this one was better than the rest. Just when I took the bag and was getting ready to pay for it, I suddenly heard my husband yell to me: "No. This one is more suitable. It closes better. You cannot easily see what's inside. The other one may be prettier, but the zipper cannot go all the way down and it has a gap that still shows [what's inside]." He said it with such a resolute tone that it struck me; so I realized that I did not come to buy a bag for the sake of buying a bag. Why was I so attached to color and style? Dafa disciples are here to help Master rectify the Fa and should not be attached to anything in this world. My husband's words were obviously a hint from Master.

I took the bag from my husband, "Yes, this is just what I need." I was grateful and said to myself, "Thank you, Master." Upon rectifying my thoughts with the Fa, I realized that as long as something is used by Dafa disciples for validating the Fa and for saving sentient beings, it is the best, no matter how insignificant it may look. Walking out of the store with my husband, I felt the expansiveness of heaven and earth, which I knew was from Master's infinite compassion.

Following Master along the way, I have sometimes been diligent and other times not so diligent. In spite of the unsteady path that I have walked, Master is compassionate to each and every disciple. I realized that as long as a disciple's mind is on the Fa and on saving sentient beings, every single detail on the path of cultivation is under the benevolent protection of Master.

Fellow practitioners, in the final moment of Fa-rectification, let us help each other advance and elevate ourselves, do the three-things well, and walk the righteous path of cultivation. Let us live up to Master's benevolent salvation and be worthy of the glorious title of "the Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciples" that Master afforded us.
