To Comply and to Harmonize
(Clearwisdom.net) We have been cultivating Falun Dafa for over ten years. We often ask ourselves whether or not we have elevated from cultivation and how much we have elevated. Falun Dafa has guided us in cultivation, but why can't we meet Dafa's standards? We still have difficulty letting go of attachments when facing tribulations. We have not met all the requirements for practitioners during the Fa-rectification period. I now wish to discuss some general viewpoints among fellow practitioners. Please correct me if I say anything incorrect.
As described in some articles on Clearwisdom, some practitioners have expressed for a long time that their local coordinators needed improvement. Within my personal experience, most coordinators are predestined for those roles. They have done very well, developed the qualities of true cultivators, and honored the promises they made before our modern history began. They have put forth great mental and physical efforts and given up many material benefits. They have been guiding practitioners to do the three things well. The coordinators have guided practitioners to comply with the Fa and to harmonize with one another at various levels. All this has not been easy for them to accomplish.
Most of the coordinators have been diligent in Fa study and have not been persecuted. They are not just doing tasks for Dafa, they are cultivating. (Of course, we need to firmly negate the evil persecution.) Therefore, in addition to learning the Fa well, we should support and cooperate with coordinators, allowing them enough time to study the Fa well. Since we are one whole body, we should make our best efforts to rectify any problems that occur and to quietly supplement others' efforts.
Some practitioners believe that the evil persecution has lasted longer than it should have and wish that the Fa-rectification would end soon. I do not know how well or to what levels those practitioners may have cultivated. If Teacher's Fa-rectification ended today, would all Falun Dafa practitioners consummate to their original positions? Think about it, can you go back to your original position? Are you a human being, or are you a divine being? Are you full of Buddha nature with no omissions? Have you met all the requirements? Though Teacher has pushed every practitioner to his or her highest level, one must cultivate to arrive there. If a practitioner is obsessed with sentimentality and lust, he or she cannot easily transform into high-energy matter. You have to cultivate and enlighten by eliminating your human concepts and letting go of human attachments. The only way is to study the Fa more diligently, learn the Fa well and look inward when encountering problems.
Let us cultivate diligently together, my fellow practitioners. Do not become confused by the false ideas of ordinary people. Finally, I remind and encourage myself and fellow practitioners by quoting Teacher,
"The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Drive Out Interference" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
