A Few Words About My Understanding of "The Process" and "The Result"
(Clearwisdom.net) Ever since our Teacher told us that we should emphasize the process, many practitioners have started to pay no attention to the result, and they think that it is fine if they just did the work.
I believe that the process and the result are interrelated. A process that does not lead to a result does not exist. Neither does a result exist that did not require a process. A process will certainly bring about a result.
My understanding is as follows: The ultimate goal of Dafa practitioners is to save people. The effectiveness of the salvation is not only determined by the result of a process, it is reflected in whether we, in the process of doing Dafa work, can comprehensively clarify the truth and eliminate the evil in other dimensions so as to achieve the goal of saving people. If we do not care about our effectiveness in saving people, I believe that we have incorrectly understood the Fa.
Another aspect is the cultivation of our hearts. Teacher's recent lectures are to help us with all aspects of our cultivation. They are not a set of instructions of how to do certain work. Therefore, it is very important that we understand well the Fa with the right heart, with the hearts of Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples.
This is my personal understanding. Please point out anything that is incorrect.
