(Clearwisdom.net) Regarding "fear," I believe every practitioner who has been validating the Fa must have gone through the process of eliminating this attachment. Those who can understand the Fa from the Fa and cultivate quite well quickly got rid of this attachment and are walking their steps steadily according to the requirements of Master in the Fa-rectification period. But those who have not been able to understand the Fa from the Fa somehow can't get rid of this attachment and sometimes even find excuses for themselves. They have not only brought about obstacles in saving sentient beings and put themselves in long-term tribulations, but also brought interference to other practitioners and caused some damage in the cooperation of the one body. I would like to share with fellow practitioners an incident in my local area. I hope those practitioners who still have the attachment of fear can reflect, "focus on how you study and cultivate" ("Solid Cultivation" - Hong Yin), and soon walk out of this status.

In our local area, Practitioner A has a computer and knows how to get on the Internet. He used to provide "Minghui Weekly" and other truth-clarification materials for a small group of practitioners. During one period, he saw many cases of persecution in various places, and heard that some local practitioners were harassed by the police. This practitioner would give truth-clarifying materials to Practitioner B who would pass them on to other practitioners. After he saw cases of persecution, Practitioner A developed the attachment of fear, telling Practitioner B that things were pretty tight those days and they should stop for a while. Practitioner B did not understand. Because of the attachment of fear, Practitioner A temporarily stopped providing the materials, and many practitioners thus were not able to receive any materials.

A few days later, Practitioner A saw Master's new articles published on the website. He thought to himself: "What should I do? Master's new article is out. I have read it already, but many other practitioners haven't read it yet. If I ask other practitioners to provide the materials, it would still take some time. And I would have added more burdens on other practitioners and taken their time for Fa study. "

During that period of time, Practitioner A also heard from others that those practitioners he used to provide materials to hadn't received Minghui Weekly or other materials since he stopped giving them out, let alone Master's new lecture. After several days studying the Fa with a tranquil heart, Practitioner A realized what he had done was not right. "Isn't this selfishness? I didn't bother to think about others just because I myself could access all this information. I thought I did this for the sake of safety due to my attachment of fear. Actually, this is the most unsafe thinking--I am pretty safe in this ordinary society, I haven't had any trouble. But will I be able to enter the new cosmos with this attachment of fear? All lives in the new cosmos are selfless. How could I reach the standard of the new cosmos with the attachment of fear? How could I even mention catching up with the pace of Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings?"

After Practitioner A truly understood the Fa from the Fa, he had no more fear. Straight away, he started to do what he should do just like before. He came back to the status of a Dafa disciple. When he really got rid of that attachment, he experienced again what Master said, "If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: 'After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!'" (Zhuan Falun)

There may be similar cases like this in other areas. When some practitioners didn't get rid of the attachment of fear for a long period of time, they could not understand the Fa from the Fa. When they heard practitioners at a particular material site were being persecuted, they would come to the conclusion that those practitioners must have had strong attachments of doing things, or didn't study the Fa enough, and sometimes they even didn't want to acknowledge the things those practitioners had done. When our fellow practitioners are being persecuted, why don't we ask ourselves: "If I could have gotten rid of the attachment of fear, shared their workload and given them more time to study the Fa, would those practitioners have been persecuted?" Aren't we cultivating ourselves in order to attain the righteous Enlightenment of selflessness and altruism? Why don't we consider others first when doing things?

In these years, because many of us failed to get rid of the attachment of fear, gaps were created among fellow practitioners, and some of us slowly drifted away from Fa-rectification, and were separated from the one body. I would like to take this opportunity to remind those practitioners who still have the attachment of fear: Quickly let go off this attachment, hurry and catch up with the pace of Fa-rectification, save sentient beings, and fulfil our prehistoric vows!
