Some Thoughts on the Relationship between a Practitioner's Cultivation and their Family Environment

October 01, 2004 |   A Practitioner in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province in China

(Clearwisdom.net) As Falun Dafa disciples in the period of Fa-rectification, we have very important responsibilities and missions. Our saving sentient beings should also include our family members.

For a practitioner, if you do things righteously, your family environment will also be righteous. There will be fewer troubles in your home, and your family members will also benefit. On the other hand, if you have too many human notions, you may deal with things like an everyday person, such as having a bad temper whenever something comes up. In this way, although you speak of Dafa, you are actually pursuing fame and self interest. If you just pay attention to yourself and ignore other people's feelings, and are even unable to take care of elderly people in the family, how can your family feel that Dafa is good and practitioners are good? How could you achieve a good effect when clarifying the truth to family members yet displaying these attachments to them?

Teacher said,

"Dafa disciples, don't forsake the magnificent responsibility that has been bestowed upon you in Fa-rectification, and even less should you disappoint those beings, as you are now their only hope for entering the future."

(Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People)

I hope all practitioners can let go of all attachments in the final steps of Fa-rectification, rectify their family environments to better save sentient beings and fulfill our historic mission.
