Studying the Fa Well is Every Fa-rectification Disciple's Requirement and Also Teacher's Earnest Expectation
(Clearwisdom.net) At many Dafa experience-sharing conferences and in many lectures, Teacher has earnestly and tirelessly taught us to study the Fa more and to study the Fa well, and has put repeated emphasis on the importance of studying the Fa. As Teacher's disciples, have we conducted ourselves according to Teacher's requirements unconditionally? When there is much Dafa work to be done and time is limited, do we still give the highest priority to studying the Fa?
Dafa work is not an ordinary matter, and it is not reflected just in this human dimension. Dafa disciples doing Fa-rectification work is also something supernormal, so we need to have abilities superior to everyday people's. We must get out of everyday peoples' mode of thinking and should be able to enlighten to the wondrous, deft arrangement of each Fa-rectification task. This then requires us to study the Fa with a calm mind and to understand issues according to the Fa. When we slack off in Fa-study, we could be puzzled easily by matters at the superficial level. We could be easily affected by the human heart, clinging to our attachments and notions. Although we give everything to Dafa wholeheartedly, we are busy everyday, we often get half the result with twice the effort, and sometimes even get the opposite result. Isn't this phenomenon deserving of our attention?
We are human beings in cultivation; we still have the human mind and attachments to let go of. At the same time, we are Fa-rectification particles; everything we do during Fa-rectification will significantly influence the future. Studying the Fa well is not just the basis of our individual cultivation and reaching Consummation, it is also a requirement for every Fa-rectification particle. Whether we can meet the requirements of the Fa in doing Dafa work and break through our own attachments depends upon whether we can genuinely improve according to the Fa. Therefore studying the Fa is the most important matter.
Only by studying the Fa well will we be able to eliminate any interference when eliminating the evil with righteous thoughts, continuing to send forth pure, powerful righteous thoughts. Only by studying the Fa well can we maintain a calm, peaceful and benevolent heart while sending forth righteous thoughts. Only by studying the Fa well can we utilize the wisdom and courage Dafa has granted to cultivators. Only by studying the Fa well can we have a tolerant heart and see our own attachments when conflicts arise among fellow practitioners while doing Dafa work.
Teacher has taught us many times,
"Under any circumstance, in any period and no matter how busy you are with your work, you can't stray from your Fa-study, as this is what fundamentally ensures that you will improve and reach Consummation. You can't do Dafa work without studying the Fa, or it would be an everyday person doing Dafa work. It has to be Dafa disciples who do Dafa work--this is the requirement for you." ("Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. International Fa Conference")
"Every one of our persons in charge needs to put special emphasis on studying the Fa. No matter how great or how extraordinary the tasks are that a person in charge shoulders, he cannot forget to cultivate himself. No matter how much work you do, you should be a Dafa disciple doing the Dafa work and not an everyday person doing the Dafa work. So you must study the Fa." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.")
"As a Dafa disciple, in order to do Fa-rectification things well and to consummate everything of yours well, you need to study the Fa a lot. No matter how busy you are, you cannot skip Fa-study. This is what can best ensure your reaching Consummation. Despite your time being tight and your being amidst the many difficulties, you are still doing what you should do. This is remarkable and is establishing your own mighty virtue, for you are emerging from the hardships, from the pressures, and from the difficulties." ("A Message")
Studying the Fa well is the principal mission of each of us Dafa practitioners, and it is Fa-rectification's requirement for us. Deter interference, study the Fa with a calm heart, take each step of our Fa-rectification cultivation well, and do not let down Teacher's earnest expectations for us.
