Assimilating to Dafa, Taking the Righteous Path in Cultivation
(Clearwisdom.net) The purpose of humans coming to this world is for returning to their original, true selves through cultivation. Dafa disciples in the Fa-Rectification period will leave their path of cultivation as a reference for the future human beings. As a Dafa disciple in the Fa-Rectification period, I ask myself continuously to take the righteous path in cultivation.
"Genuinely cultivate Dafa, Only this is great." ("Obtaining Fa", Hong Yin, Version B)
I try my best to conform to the state of ordinary human society as much as possible, but without involving myself in anything that is unnecessary. Then I can find time to study the Fa and practice the exercises. From the beginning of my cultivation, besides doing my work well, I used any spare time to study the Fa. Generally, I studied one and a half chapters of Zhuan Falun every day. After a considerably long period of time, I laid a solid foundation for my cultivation.
Because I consistently study the Fa and cultivate myself, those who don't practice can directly and easily see me as a true practitioner. When others have some difficulties, I help them. This naturally has the effect of the Fa-validation. Because my heart is assimilating to Dafa, my appearance is continuously improving, and my colleagues can see that I have a high moral character. When the school where I work holds recreational activities, no matter whether it is singing, dancing, playing music, basketball, volleyball or ping-pong, I will participate in it as much as possible. Since everything in the ordinary society was created for the Fa, all the skills I have were also given by Master. They are used to communicate well with non-practitioners, clarify the truth and save the world's people.
No matter what kind of dinner party I attend, I uphold the standard for practitioners of not smoking or drinking. Sometimes, I speak of Dafa very naturally at social events. At noon, I send forth righteous thoughts in the office and my colleagues have quickly become accustomed to my doing so. I make sure to send forth righteous thoughts at the four set times around the world every day. At midnight, I use an alarm clock or cell phone to wake myself up for sending forth righteous thoughts.
No one is in the world today without a major reason. Everyone has come for the Fa, and the inner meanings behind the reasons are enormous. So I try my best to cherish every moment I spend with my colleagues and students. Every time the sixth grade graduates came to me for a signature, I write down: please remember Falun Dafa is good. Then I sign my name. I cherish every student that may have a predestined relationship with me and fully use the environment Master gave to me to do well the work of saving the world's people.
"Full of great aspirations while minding minor details," I will continue to do well the three things that Master asked us to do. (1)
