(Clearwisdom.net) Recently I have gained a deeper understanding on the necessity of Dafa practitioners forming one whole body: The new cosmos is a harmonized and well-organized body. I would like to share my understanding with fellow practitioners in this regard.

Master has told us that how efficiently practitioners promote Shen Yun is related to the overall coordination of Dafa practitioners. In previous lectures, Master also mentioned the powerful effect of a well-coordinated whole body of Dafa practitioners. However, my understanding on this part of the Fa was still limited to the superficial level. After I read the article, "How to Form One Body of Dafa Practitioners" (the Chinese version of the article is at http://www.minghui.org/mh/articles/2009/7/10/204273.html) from the 2009 Austrian Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference, and also Master's Lecture, "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York," I realized that forming one body of Dafa practitioners is an essential part of our cultivation.

From the Fa lecture, I have come to understand that the selfish nature of the old cosmos has determined the principle of "generation, stasis, degeneration, and destruction," which governs the old cosmos. When some parts of, or the whole of the old cosmos become degenerated, they must be annihilated to the point of emptiness before the new parts or the new whole cosmos can be generated. The new cosmos is to have an automatic renewing mechanism. Our cultivation process is one of the new cosmos' formation. In order for the new cosmos to form automatic self-correcting and renewing mechanisms, each particle of the new cosmos needs to have the mechanism of searching inward. In addition, all the particles in the new cosmos must also form the mechanism for harmonizing each other. So when one particle of the new cosmos (which is equivalent to one individual) degenerates, it requires the harmonizing mechanism of the whole cosmos to make this particle become good again. The formation of this harmonizing mechanism is based on the unselfishness of the particles in the new cosmos. If the factors separating the individual cosmos' particles cannot be eliminated, those particles are not allowed to exist in the new cosmos.

Additionally, this unselfish harmonization also encompasses cultivators' tolerance of everyday people. In my cultivation, I often encounter practitioners who cannot tolerate certain shortcomings of people in society. When a person's corresponding universe becomes degenerated, if Dafa cultivators cannot tolerate this person, this person's universe will be destroyed. So we can only unconditionally offer people salvation. Only through practitioner' forbearance and unconditional compassion, can they enter the future and have the chance of becoming good again.
