The Power of Group Fa Study, No Matter How Small the Group
(Clearwisdom.net) My spouse and I became Falun Dafa practitioners at the beginning of 1999. In recent years, we have often shared experiences about Fa study and encouraged each other to improve together. However, when studying the Fa, we always studied separately, feeling that with our different schedules it was more convenient. A couple of days ago, two practitioners came to my home and saw our situation regarding Fa study. They suggested that we study the Fa together according to Teacher's arrangement of group Fa study.
On the night of November 7, my wife said, "Let's study the Fa together. Each of us can read a paragraph." Thus we started group Fa study. Miracles happened on the first day of our group Fa study. We were energetic as we studied the Fa, the sleepiness that occurred during individual Fa study was gone. While studying the Fa, our thoughts were very clear, and the words penetrated our hearts. The lack of concentration we experienced during individual Fa study was gone. While studying the Fa, the incorrect pronunciation of words or phrases was corrected so that we stayed within the Fa. There were more manifestations of the Fa and improvements in level. Since then, we have continued doing group Fa study and have felt continuous improvement within the Fa.
We shared experiences and enlightened that the small family group study environment demonstrates the compassion and grace of our great, compassionate Teacher. Let's keep up with the progress of Fa rectification and cultivate diligently.
I would like to share with fellow practitioners two things that I enlightened to.
Small, family-style group study and group practices are springing up everywhere and are the standard in Mainland China during this period of Fa-rectification. On the Minghui/Clearwisdom website, practitioners suggested that small Fa study and practice groups should be set up everywhere. We feel this was definitely a requirement during Fa-rectification. Group study and group practice are the cultivation formats Teacher arranged for us. Since July 20, 1999, this format has been disrupted by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). However, Teacher has mentioned many times in his lectures that whenever circumstances allow, practitioners should still study the Fa together and practice together. Now the Fa-rectification has reached the final stage, and the evil has become even more vicious. Group Fa study and exercise by practitioners will form a giant energy field. "... this field can rectify all wrong states." (Zhuan Falun). It is the basic way to shock the evil. Family-style small study and exercise groups blooming everywhere will help practitioners eliminate the divisions caused by the old forces and improve us as one body. It will definitely completely eliminate and dismiss the dark minions and ghosts.
During group Fa study, when each practitioner reads a paragraph or a part of the lecture, the righteous thoughts will be strong. Powerful energy fields plus the righteous thoughts of practitioners will leave no loopholes for dark minions and ghosts. Even the sight of group study and exercising will make the evil scared. It will make the practitioner's fields clean and tranquil, and it will be easier to focus on studying the Fa.
The above are some of our enlightenments. Fellow practitioners, please compassionately point out anything that may be incorrect.
