  • Eliminate Acquired Notions - Some Thoughts after Hearing My Son's Words

    I have been practising Dafa for many years and some of my attachments and acquired notions have been removed. But when I think back now, I find that during my individual cultivation period, most of my thoughts were actually dominated by acquired notions. These thoughts are just barriers that prevent me from keeping righteous thoughts all the time while handling things.
  • Cultivating and Saving Family Members

    I asked myself, "Did you follow Teacher's Fa? Did you behave as a practitioner?" In the subsequent days, I treated my family as my cultivation environment and my family members as sentient beings for me to save.I reminded myself to keep righteous thoughts and study the Fa well. I was certain that I could handle all conflicts and family members properly.
  • A Change in Mindset that Improved My Fa-study

    My mind wandered again yesterday while reading Zhuan Falun. So, I thought I should probably memorize the book, but was afraid it would slow down the speed of my reading. With this dilemma in the back of my mind, I suddenly discovered that all the distracting thoughts that had bothered me had vanished.
  • The Mentality of a Divine Being

    There is only one thing on a divine being's mind at every moment and under every circumstance, and that is validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. No matter how favourable or harsh the environment, a divine being's mind will not changed, and he/she will steadfastly continue on the path of belief.
  • Truly Follow the Requirements of the Fa in Every Deed

    Our gong cultivates both mind and body. How come I was showing signs of premature ageing? I know Teacher has told us that doing the exercises is the best way to rest. Yet when facing the reality of the situation, what I followed were my notions. I know what Teacher said is true, but I didn't truly believe in Teacher and the Fa.
  • How Dafa Saved Me

    All I heard and saw was the attacks, beatings, and fighting that was promoted by the Chinese Communist Party. I didn't know what was good and bad, let alone how to be a good person. My judgement of good and bad was reversed. Compassionate Teacher saved me.
  • Eliminating the Attachment to "Saving Face"

    For example, some practitioners don't point out problems directly, or talk in circles when discussing issues face to face, but point fingers behind others' backs. If two practitioners have a conflict, they don't take the initiative to discuss a solution. Instead, they find a third practitioner to mediate.
  • Our Basis Must Be Correct

    I asked myself why I can't step out of the circle of "selfishness." When I consider my own situation, my own difficulties, my own misery and my own pressure, am I selfish and egocentric? Are these human notions? Aren't these all transformed by human thoughts? Aren't these all false impressions?
  • My Understandings After Leaving Home

    At my current level I have the understanding that if we study the Fa with calm hearts, we will be able to eliminate our attachments during Fa study and reach certain levels of consummation. Eliminating our attachments leaves no loopholes for the evil to take advantage of, thus effectively ending the persecution.
  • We Must Set Our Minds Straight

    With openness and dignity, he clarified the facts about the persecution, and how people have started to quit the evil party. The judge laughed when hearing about the party's absurd behaviour. At last, the practitioner was released unconditionally. He didn't even think of his personal safety or the pain he was suffering. All he was thinking about was saving sentient beings and validating the Fa.
  • My Experience in Guiding Young Practitioners

    We should also improve our communication with young practitioners and let them know more about the persecution. When the children and I are studying the Fa, I tell them to read the book with their heart and look up words that they aren't sure of.
  • Rising Above Perceptual Understanding to a True Understanding of Dafa

    One human thought can mean the difference between good and evil. If you study Dafa with pursuit, you will forever be limited to seeing principles on a human level, not the true manifestation of the Buddha Fa at different levels.
  • Do the Three Things with a Pure Heart

    When I got my lunch, at times I asked for more. It's not possible to return leftovers, and it's a pity to throw them away, so I took them home and thought, "Great, now, I also have dinner. I'll ask for more tomorrow." Immediately, Teacher's words about "loss and gain" came to my mind. I felt so ashamed that I still held such bad thoughts.
  • The Young Dafa Practitioner in My Home

    I think as adult practitioners, we must do the three things well and cultivate ourselves well. This is the key to leading young practitioners well. We should not look down on young practitioners. Their minds are less distracted and very pure. They sometimes love to play, and we should also look at this with compassion.
  • Why Do I Always Focus on Others' Faults?

    During the Fa-rectification everything is being created anew. While we are still in the cultivation process we should compare our thinking with the Fa's requirements and deeply investigate our thoughts. We should ask ourselves if our thinking really is the kind of pure, upright thinking that is in line with the Fa.
