Mind Minor Details and Try Our Utmost to Do the Three Things Well
(Clearwisdom.net) After eating at a cafeteria, I used tissue to clean the leftovers on the table and threw them into the garbage bin. My colleague told me: "You don't need to do that because we have someone who will do the cleaning." I said: "There are only a few of us who eat here. And since we don't have much left on the table, if we can just clean it by ourselves, we can save the cleaners time doing the job." My colleague was surprised and said: "How come I feel you are different from the others? You always take others into consideration." "Because I practice Falun Gong..." Very easily I would clarify the truth of Dafa. Each time, I will definitely tell them what they saw on TV is defamation and lies against Falun Gong.
We are Fa-rectification period Dafa practitioners. Wherever we go, we should bring with us the beauty of Dafa. Wherever we go, we go with all our glittering radiance that is Dafa practitioners' upright radiance. We should be "full of great aspirations while minding minor details" ("Sage"). We should use our own actions to reflect the upright radiance of Dafa practitioners, to stop the decline of virtue, and to rectify the unhealthy human nature.
The bicycle parking lot in our company is very small, and there is a big mess where the bicycles are parked. Every time when I go to the bicycle lot, I would tidy it up by putting up the fallen bicycles. Once when I was holding up the bicycles, there were many colleagues coming in and out of the bicycle parking lot, and one of them called out "Falun Dafa is good." Everyone smiled.
I have many of these experiences. No matter whether it is at the factory, in the street or at home, I live my life according to the criteria of Dafa. All the compliments are honors given to me by our Master. However, we have our grand wish - that is to save sentient beings. Master said in "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York" that
"So as for the Dafa disciples in any region, you are basically the hope for the beings in that region to be saved--their only hope, in fact."
I feel that it is my responsibility to save every single being around me. As a result, I add to my righteous thought: "Eliminate all the evil interference in the other dimensions related to every single being whom I meet, so that they will treat Dafa and their own lives with the understanding side of their beings." After sending forth righteous thoughts, it goes very smoothly in clarifying the truth. When I send forth the righteous thoughts, I do it with good plans and steps. It is not like just touching one thing lightly without going into it deeply. Besides the worldwide sending forth of righteous thoughts, I also focus on all the beings in my whole dimension, with the determination and ambition to save all the sentient beings. At least we should give them a chance to be saved.
Master said in "Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students" that
"You are a cultivator, so you need to have mighty-virtue. And where does your mighty-virtue come from? Doesn't it come from letting go of self and being selfless in this grueling environment, and being completely responsible to the Fa as a Dafa disciple? Isn't that, itself, mighty-virtue? And what's more, you did it in a grueling environment. The more you put you first or mix in [factors of] self, the less mighty-virtue you have, and that's why it is less likely that you succeed at things or do them well. Dafa's things should be the most sacred, and that's why the less you have of your own notions and involve your own factors, the better you can handle them and the more likely you are to succeed."
It is very important to study the Fa, which will make us stronger in our righteous thoughts. The key point in studying the Fa is
"If you're going to study, you need to set aside everything else that's on your mind, keep your mind steady, quiet your mind, and truly study. Even if you just study a few paragraphs [this way], it's better than reading the entire book with a restless mind. When you study the Fa, you have to absorb it." ("Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students")
When we study the Fa well, we have more Fa in our mind, and then we can make sure to send forth purer and stronger righteous thoughts. And then we can rectify each single thought and action. And as a result, we can reflect all the radiance of Dafa from inside ourselves to the outside.
