Using My Artwork to Approach People's Heart (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) From September 9 to September 24, 2002, a University Students' Artworks Exhibition of Modern Arts Design Studio was held at the Exhibition Hall of Latvia Architects' Union in the downtown of Riga, the capital of Latvia. Two artistic posters I designed were being exhibited.

I first heard about the exhibition from my parents one year ago. For a period of time, I had no idea if I should take these courses and participate in the exhibition. I only remember one thing, that is, every day of mine has to do with the process of the Fa-rectification of the universe. As a Dafa disciple, I try to look at everything I meet from the standpoint of Dafa. I understand that we Dafa disciples should use our daily conducts and our own experiences to create an opportunity for the people around us to know about Falun Dafa. If we are not selfish, and our behavior is noble, our manner will affect our friends, relatives and people who are familiar with us. Falun Dafa practitioners spread all over in different countries and continents. In today's world, people have many accesses. If I, a Dafa cultivator am isolated from the society, how can others understand the benefits brought to them by following the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance?"
I have been practicing cultivation in Falun Dafa for over three years. I have become calmer and physically healthy. I no longer need to see a doctor. My belief in Falun Dafa strengthens my willpower and I have been resolute enough to reject those bad behaviors that used to be out of my control. I want to use my artwork to approach people's heart, and tell them, "Falun Dafa is good!" I hope through my work people can understand the profoundness of Falun Dafa and goodness the universal Dafa brings to the world.
In Zhuan Falun, Master said, "...Literary works are based on life and then go beyond it;" I understand, literature is only one aspect of modern art. If what surrounds people and what people think were all good and healthy, leaving no room for the bad things to exist, life would be pure. Through cultivation, we know that "matter and mind are one thing." Things we made with righteous thoughts, their manifestation will enhance the righteous field of our physical world. I also understand, people who have not read Zhuan Falun will determine their attitude toward Falun Dafa according to Dafa practitioners' demeanor. I think this is a great responsibility of Fa-rectification disciples, and I will use my best efforts to do well.
The above is my understanding. If anything is inappropriate, please point it out to me.
