A Dream About the Importance of Practitioners Cherishing and Caring for Each Other
Dafa practitioners are now facing a great battle between the forces of good and evil. At this crucial moment in history, how can Dafa practitioners act together as an indestructible and undivided body to successfully carry out this sacred mission?
- Practitioners should show their compassion for each other
- Writing with a righteous mind will help to unite practitioners as one body
- The importance of our attitude towards Teacher and Fa
A few days ago, I had a dream. I was among many trainees, preparing for an important training event. All other participants wore very attractive light yellow knee-protectors, but I did not have any. One of the others walked past and saw me, and after some thought, handed me his pair of knee-protectors. He solemnly yet kindly insisted that I have them. I was very grateful. After putting them on, I joined the others in their training. The message from the dream, I felt, was that Teacher would like us to help each other out. We should cherish and appreciate each other, even if we have to sacrifice something that could be important to us. In the dream, the knee-protectors were necessities, and everyone had to wear them. An interesting thing is that "knee-protector," pronounced as "Hu Xi" in Chinese, is similar in pronunciation to "Hu Xiang Ai Xi," which carries the meaning -- care about each other.
I have realized that putting our own experiences on paper and sharing them with others is also a part of our cultivation practice. Looking at it from another perspective, it is also a display of Dafa practitioners' responsibility towards fellow practitioners. Not only do written articles help to encourage, hence elevate levels mutually amongst practitioners, they also serve to expose the evil and eliminate interference at the same time. Practitioners who have the capacity to do so are recommended to contribute articles to Clearwisdom.net. While helping others by doing so, it is also a means of paving the final sections of our own cultivation path.
Even during the most trying times and circumstances in China, I often found myself surrounded with an atmosphere of an indescribable feeling -- kind of like holiness, truthfulness and sincerity, that exists only amongst fellow practitioners. There was also a feeling of mutual caring and respect, definitely different than everyday human love and passion, for there was no selfishness in it. Everything was perfectly beautiful. Their thoughts, the things they did and said made me feel that their hearts towards Teacher and Fa were so truthful, so pure, so determined, yet so moving. It was the most beautiful experience I have ever had.
If we can be more dedicated, better knit together as a unit, more truthful and kinder in our hearts and, if we can be more determined, have fewer attachments, further purify our hearts, even if we have to sacrifice a few more hours of sleep, then let us do it. It is because "Dafa disciples are now sentient beings' only, sole hope for salvation." ("Righteous Thoughts") Teacher will then be gratified by our diligence, and our efforts will result in more sentient beings receiving salvation..
The above is my personal understanding for sharing. Your kind comments are appreciated.
