(Clearwisdom.net) On May 17, 2009, the Canada Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference was held in Toronto. Compassionate great Master sent a congratulatory letter to the conference at 2:30 p.m., encouraging the practitioners to study the Fa well and cultivate themselves well. Based on this, they will naturally have strong righteous thoughts and will definitely do well the things they are supposed to do.

2009 Canada Fa conference venue

Falun Gong practitioners share their cultivation experiences

More than 20 practitioners shared their cultivation experiences at the Fa conference. The topics included how to conduct themselves and do things according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in their work and everyday life; on coordinating ticket sales for the Shen Yun Performing Arts shows, and clarifying the facts about Falun Gong and exposing the persecution to people in different environments. A number of new and veteran practitioners shared their cultivation experiences and understandings from different perspectives on improving a xinxing, getting rid of human attachments and experience in studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the facts.

Ms. Zhi from Ottawa spoke of her experience and understanding of coordinating ticket sales for the Shen Yun Performing Arts shows. She said that when practitioners as a whole were in a good cultivation state, she noted the manifestation of Dafa's mighty power on the practitioners. Shen Yun Performing Arts company staged four shows in early January this year in Ottawa. There were nearly 9,000 tickets. The practitioners realized the significance of Shen Yun Performing Arts shows in saving sentient beings. Many practitioners took part in promoting the show and selling tickets at different ticket-selling sites. Ms. Zhi noted that every practitioner put in similar efforts, but some practitioners sold more tickets, and some sold less. The practitioners then organized a group Fa study, and exchanged understanding and insights based on the Fa principles. They also played videos to compare and exchanged on ticket sale skills. Soon, everybody noticed that if they studied the Fa well, and did the exercises well, the results would be good. People would feel the peacefulness and magnificence of the Shen Yun in the field of practitioners' righteous thoughts. If they did not study the Fa, people would show little interest in listening to practitioners' introducing Shen Yun to them. After reaching a common understanding, practitioners whose English was not fluent began memorizing promotional information on the Shen Yun shows, and soon were able to introduce Shen Yun and handle all procedures of ticket sales without other practitioners' help.

"I felt they did things with their supernormal capabilities," said Ms. Zhi. After understanding the importance of studying the Fa, the tickets were sold quickly, in the end, 980f 9,000 tickets were sold out.

Ms. Sun from Montreal shared how she walked out of her attachments, and purified herself in Dafa during the process of doing coordination work. Ms. Sun's family members are non-practitioners. While at home, she treated them candidly and compassionately as a cultivator is supposed to do, and gained understanding and support from her family members. She could participate in Fa-validation projects and activities of clarifying the facts about Dafa without any restraint from her family. She has been a coordinator for several years, and has gradually matured. But at the same time, her attachment to herself became stronger, and she began encountering contradictions and conflicts. She said, "Particularly when fellow practitioners blamed me or criticized the assistance site, I could not bear it, and felt uncomfortable. I always found faults with others. This caused many conflicts between practitioners." After calming down, she realized that what she had been attached to was actually looking at the attachments of fellow practitioners. When encountering conflicts, she did not look within to find the reason as Master requires us; instead, she always found fault with others.

"Realizing all this, I became calmer, the partition in my mind disintegrated, and fellow practitioners' attitudes toward me also changed." Ms. Sun said.

The entire day's exchange and sharing passed in a blink of an eye. In the end, the host of the Fa conference read a poem as an encouragement to each other and then the Fa conference concluded. The practitioners attending the Fa conference agreed that such experience sharing is conducive to their individual improvement in cultivation and also plays a positive role in achieving better cooperation among practitioners.
