Do We Know How to Put the Fa Principles into Practice?
(Clearwisdom.net) Many practitioners study the Fa every day. Some also memorize the Fa. But why don't they act like practitioners during tribulations? After thinking for a long time, I found a problem. Some practitioners who study the Fa seem not to have any connection with the Fa. It's as though something has separated such practitioners from the Fa. So much so that in the midst of ordeals such practitioners are unable to recall the Fa or look within.
Studying the Fa is for understanding the Fa. And thus we can apply our understanding of the Fa to solve all things we encounter and solve all confusion in our thoughts. The Fa can extricate all of our worries and pain. Some practitioners also know to look inward, but do not understand how to look inward. I think, to look inward, we must first study the Fa solidly, and have the support of the Fa. There is an essential issue, and that is how to connect one's main consciousness with the Fa. This is the most essential "enlightenment."
I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. At the time I was in the first year of high school. Once I had an idea to ceaselessly recite "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" as much as possible. I would recite "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" when I was walking, and recite "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" whenever I was free. This reciting helped me to remember to follow "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" in my actions at all times. The purpose of memorizing the Fa is to achieve such an aim, to allow one to remember the Fa in xinxing tests. This is an essential step, if this step can't be achieved, then one would be unable to look inward. After a long time of reciting "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," I am able to recite "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" when I'm in the midst of tests. While I am reciting "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," I am able to act according to "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance", such as speaking and acting in accordance with the Fa, looking inwards, knowing how to look inwards, understanding how to apply my understanding of the Fa, and gradually knowing how to practice.
If we study the Fa well and memorize the Fa, then we will remember the Fa amidst ordeals. Then we will speak and act in accordance with the Fa. Furthermore, we should use the Fa to correct every thought of ours, melt ourselves into the Fa, then we can really know how to practice. While we're facing tests out in the world, we can rapidly improve. Such are Dafa practitioners!
