Make Good Use of Our Talents and Walk Righteously on the Path of Validating the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) There are a variety of ways to clarify the truth: media, Internet, phone calls, fax, mail, delivery of flyers. Which method is the most appropriate way? One fellow practitioner once had some doubts. In his own opinion, he was good at clarifying the truth by making phone calls, but some practitioners told him that he should learn to use QQ (a tool to clarify the facts on the internet). This practitioner thus was confused as to whether he should learn how to use QQ, because he was not good at computers.
In my opinion, a practitioner should take his/her own advantages and skills into consideration. For example, some practitioners have good verbal skills so they choose to make phone calls or to participate in a media project. Others have writing talent so they can validate the Fa by writing. Some find it hard to travel, so they choose those projects which do not require any trips such as using the Internet, mailing, faxing, and making phone calls. Some are very warmhearted, which is an advantage in helping coordinate the projects. If everyone can do well in his/her own position, we together can bring into full play the power of the whole.
It is like our organs: every organ has its own function and each use is important to the whole. I think the most important thing in clarifying the truth is to do it well. If you are an expert at that project, you may solve the problem easily. Of course, that does not necessarily mean that I have to do that project because I am the expert. If it is possible, we can create our own projects.
Take myself, for example. Making phone calls, writing, participating in group activities, clarifying truth face to face, and teaching new practitioners suit me quite well. I am good at those things and I am also able to look after my job and family in the meantime. I think if I am not good at it, then it may be very hard to do it well and the result may not be good.
In truth-clarification, we should not weigh each project. Also, it is not the case that the technical support and the coordinators are more important. If we can do everything well in every position, we are improving ourselves. In a parade, some practitioners dress up as gods, some dress up as dancers, some play waist drums, some hold our banners, some hold the boards and some just walk along. Whoever is leading the parade is important, and all of the other roles in the parade are equally important. As long as we have pure heart, we are improving and elevating.
Some practitioners have said that Falun Dafa practitioners are able to do everything, and can learn anything they want to learn. I don't agree. Some projects require certain basic skills. Whatever skills we learned before we obtained the Fa are the basis of our validating the Fa. Many things may appear disordered, but actually they are building the path of validating Fa in an orderly way. We avoid a crooked road if we walk our path by fully making use of our skills or talents.
Every project is equally important. We should not "set our eyes" only on the "popular" projects. Of course, if one project is in urgent need of input, then it will be a priority. Generally speaking, we should do everything according to our own advantages and abilities.
This was the problem I saw in our Fa rectification projects and I wanted to share it with fellow practitioners. Let us cover the gaps and walk righteously on the path of validating the Fa.
