(Clearwisdom.net) For a long time, I was interfered with by lust and selfishness. Although I tried to cultivate away every one of these notions, it was not very effective. It seemed I did not dig them out by their roots and was always playing cat and mouse with these attachments. I could not escape the arrangements of the old forces.

Master's "Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival" helped me to suddenly enlighten to the difference between a Dafa disciple's looking inside during Fa-rectification and personal cultivation from before. Whatever you come across, your first thought should be whether it was arranged by Master, whether it is needed in the Fa-rectification, whether it was created and developed by the new cosmos, and whether it is a righteous path to leave for the future. If you look at it from the perspective of the Fa, you will find the difference between everyday notions and the Fa's requirements by completely letting go of selfishness and completely assimilating to the Fa. When you look back at those notions and attachments, you will see they are "rotten apples in the palace," which should be disposed of immediately.

Please point it out if there is anything not correct in my understanding.
