  • From the Illusion of "Modern Independent Lifestyle" to Truth-Compassion-Forbearance

    In another class one student asked, "Teacher, what is 'Falun Dafa Hao?' You told the other class about this but we want to know, too." This was a clear reminder to me that I must make sure to clarify the truth to every single class I teach, no exceptions, because they all came here for the Fa. They were literally asking me to tell them! The entire class immediately quieted down and payed close attention. They said they would like to wear T-shirts that say "Falun Dafa Hao."
  • Upgrading Myself in Eutelsat Incident

    I asked myself: " The signal of NTD TV has not been connected yet, the evil is still acting violently, but have you already retreated? Don’t you really have enough money to buy a train ticket to Paris? Can’t you leave the Dafa work here which isn't so urgent? Will my husband really stop you from going there? ”
  • Some understanding regarding ‘working together unconditionally’

    The fundamental nature of all things and beings and practitioners is to be in line with the characteristics of the cosmos. No matter which differences of opinion we face or which difficulties we have among each other, those are all processes of transformation and not fundamental things. This understanding has helped me to remove many negative ideas and concepts from my mind, thus allowing me to come closer to ‘working together unconditionally’ and to be less attached to my personal opinion
  • The Little Helper Is An Instrument Of the Fa Used In Our Clarifying The Truth And Saving Sentient Beings

    In recent years, with sudden incidents increasing in China, the bases have played a great role in rescuing fellow practitioners who are illegally arrested and detained. Within just a few days, more than one hundred thousand telephone broadcast calls are sent to the same area at the same time, enabling all the local residents to know about the bad deeds done by the evil Party. The feedback from mainland China tells us: “we have learnt of so many incidents that have happened in various places. The evil Party is very unpopular and its doomsday is near.”
  • Letting Go of Human Notions and Recovering from Depression

    What other practitioners said or did were merely to help me awaken from my slumber and realize what I had not let go. All along it was my problem. If I let it go, fellow practitioners would have nothing to point out to me. Teacher wants us to look within when we are faced with problems. This is the absolute truth.
  • Believing in Teacher and Dafa, Firmly Walking the Cultivation Path

    Another practitioner once told me that Teacher had published a "Lecture Ten." I was alert and said immediately, "Teacher's Zhuan Falun only has nine lectures. I have never heard of a lecture ten. You should stop, not pass this around, and destroy it at once. This is serious. Have you forgotten the last lesson? We must take the Fa as the Teacher." So the spreading of these false articles was stopped in time in our area.
  • Lessons Learned Studying Teacher's New Article, "Again Wishing a Complete Success to the European Fa Conference"

    In this new article, I can sense Teacher's eagerness and the urgency regarding this matter. In the meagre time that remains, we shall, through this conference, form a strong and indestructible one body. In the meantime, we shall try to influence those practitioners who are still not diligent to overcome their difficulties and rise above being human. Let us make our cultivation environment a pure land where practitioners can share and elevate together
  • My Understanding of "Cultivating while Conforming to Everyday Society"

    It seems that because some practitioners, including myself, didn't have a clear understanding of the Fa, we frequently became excited while chatting. When China was mentioned, we criticized and talked about many things in China that we felt were not good. This gives people the impression that "Falun Gong doesn't love China." Not only that, once we start talking about some of the ugly news in China, we forget that we are here to save sentient beings.
  • Master's Boundless Compassion

    I exchanged my confused thoughts with a practitioner who came to pick up materials. This practitioner told me there was no requirement as to quantity, and I could just do as much as I could. Having heard this I felt less burdened but thought about it later and realized: What I'm doing is to offer sentient beings salvation. What am I afraid of? Isn't fear a reflection of ego? When I enlightened to the Fa principles, I let go of the fear once more, and the interference also stopped, and I began to make more and more materials.
  • How I Clarify the Facts at Work

    He was moved by what I said, and replied, "I shall treat you like I always do. Thank you for telling me so much. I am willing to withdraw." Later, I continued to pass on fact sheets to him and he was willing to take them. He told me, "In the hallway of the building in which I live someone wrote, 'The Chinese Communist Party is not China. Being faithful to the CCP is not equal to being faithful to China.' I think it makes sense." I was overjoyed to hear him say that. Now, he has read Zhuan Falun three times.
  • The Power of Compassion

    As I hadn't handed out any materials on the subway for a long time, this little task seemed as hard as the first time I made truth-clarification phone calls to China. I reminded myself that my fear was my lack of compassion for saving sentient beings. When I finally overcame my fear, my compassion arose and I said "hello" and gave to him my first 2009 show flier. The man read the flier carefully.
  • Looking Within All the Time Is a Crucial Method to Improve Ourselves

    Recently when my colleague was drunk, he came up to me and said, "I am better than you." At that time I was angry and I thought, "Do you have any qualifications to even compete with me?" I just ignored him and I refused to even look at him. Each time I saw him drunk, I would gloat and I felt no compassion or mercy for him. Today I realize that such bad thoughts are terrible! Before I looked within I felt that I was so superior and good. But after looking within I found so many attachments and bad substances.
  • Sentient Beings Are Longing for the Truth

    She took out a copy of the Nine Commentaries, an amulet, and other materials from her bag and gave them to him. He accepted them gladly and said, "I am so fortunate. This protective amulet is so beautiful. It's great!" He asked for several more so that he could share them with his co-workers.
  • Thoughts on Shopping

    For the last nine years, I have followed these "shopping standards." In all seasons but summer, I wear the same pair of shoes. It is not that Falun Dafa practitioners are impoverished. With the exception of basic necessities, we spend all of our income on truth-clarification projects. That is why we have been able to persevere for these nine years and have never stopped working. Every practitioner is doing the same.
