Several of My Deepest Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) Greetings Master! Greetings fellow practitioners!
Participating in this Fa conference in the form of writing articles submitted to the Minghui website manifests the cultivation of Falun Dafa disciples as "...a 'Great Way without form'" ("Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles"). Fa conferences are a cultivation form that Master arranged for us, so Dafa disciples should participate. Looking back over my eleven-year cultivation, I feel that I have upgraded myself very slowly, and what I encountered was not that significant. However, I think that as long as I am in the Fa, I can still reflect the sacred light of Dafa. I truly feel the purification in the very microscopic spaces of my life by Master, and my gratitude is indescribable. My cultivation has consisted of falling down and getting up, up and down. There are many instances I could write about. I will report several of my deep thoughts to Master, while at the same time sharing with fellow practitioners.
Looking Inward While Making Materials
The burner I was using to make copies of a truth clarification disc was failing after being used for over a year. At that time, I didn't know how to make images, and it would have been very difficult to create the original disc again. A fellow practitioner told me that he had the same problem, and it could be overcome by replacing its shell. When I returned home, I looked at the burner and thought about getting a new shell for it, but I felt that this wasn't the right answer. Didn't Master tell us to look inward? I didn't do so, and simply replaced the machine when there were problems. Isn't this the same as acknowledging the old forces? When conflicts occur, no matter who the other person is, we should look inward without any conditions. As this notion became clearer, the burner began working again! Since then it has cooperated with me very well, without any problems.
One time I was planning to visit my parents, and it was 8:00 a.m. I wondered how many discs I could burn by 10:30 a.m. But it refused to work, reminding me to think of others, and to consider the burner's endurance. When I realized the attachment of only thinking about myself, the burner again started working. In the hot summer, when I used my only fan to cool the burner and computer, they worked hard and were overloaded. I felt that looking inward as a Dafa disciple is a form of compassion. The Buddha Fa is boundless.
Everything is Arranged for Demonstrating Dafa and Saving Sentient Beings
At 6:00 a.m. on December 1, just after sending forth righteous thoughts, I received a phone call from my husband's sister. She said his father, who is in his nineties, fell down, and she asked my husband to take him to the hospital for a CT scan. On the way to her home, I started asking Master not to let my father-in-law have any problems. But I hesitated, and thought no, that will bring me trouble. I also eliminated evil, denied the arrangement of the old forces, and thought that if he had any problems it was persecution by the old forces. Soon after however, I felt that this thought wasn't right. How could I beg Master to change anything for an ordinary person? It is being irresponsible to Master. It is not my place to worry about an ordinary person's condition, as I should walk the path that Master arranged. I accepted the fact that his hipbone was broken. Before the surgery that night, I told him loudly, "Father-in-law, please remember Falun Dafa is good!" Although he sometimes lost consciousness, he replied to me clearly, "I remember, Dafa is good." Actually he knew it long ago.
During the surgery, I explained the truth about the persecution to the patients in his room and their nurses, and helped them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Since they all saw my care and concern for my father-in-law before the surgery, several people in the room as well as visitors, each took a truth-clarification brochure, and read quietly. In the corridor, people were coming and going, but inside the room it was quiet and harmonious, very different. "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities." (Zhuan Falun)
While writing articles, I recall what happened during my cultivation. I remember that when I clarified the truth in detail to my son-in-law, who had wrong thoughts towards Dafa, he suddenly asked me, "Besides your Master, whom else will you believe? I thought about it seriously then, and replied, "Nobody else. Only Master." It is from the bottom of my heart, transcending time and space, lasting forever.
I was born for Dafa, I came for Dafa. I am a disciple of Master. I can only be diligent to repay the goodness of Master. Thank you Master!
