My Enlightenment After Studying "Fa Teaching Given at the 2010 New York Fa Conference"
(Clearwisdom.net) Master mentioned twice at the New York Fa Conference that we should not put Falun Gong in front while doing all of our other Dafa work. Master first mentioned this when he answered the question about whether to bring the Divine Land Marching Band to town prior to the Shen Yun show. Another time he mentioned this in regards to encouraging people to quit the Party and distributing The Epoch Times newspaper at the same time.
I enlightened to the fact that different people have different obstacles. Due to the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda, many people are prejudiced against Falun Gong. They reject Falun Gong immediately as soon as they hear about it, so these people miss the opportunity to understand the truth and miss the chance to be saved. If we try not to stir up peoples' negative side while clarifying the truth, they will be more prone to read the truth-clarifying materials and they may watch the Shen Yun show. This will help them to clean up the bad things in their minds, as well as eliminate obstacles that block them from accepting the truth clarification. They will thus have a greater ability to understand the truth and to be saved. In regards to distributing Shen Yun DVDs in China, the Minghui website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) editorial department sent very clear instructions that truth-clarifying materials and Shen Yun DVDs should be distributed separately. Shen Yun DVDs are not allowed to be distributed with other materials. Master has tirelessly offered salvation to humankind with great compassion.
On the other hand, the things we do in everyday society should conform to everyday society's conditions. This includes the way we talk and perform at work. If we do things that aren't in accordance with the norms of everyday society, we will be seen as abnormal. Master requires practitioners to harmonize with everyday society while cultivating. We should do things according to the principles of the Fa, and not purposely justify doing things that may not be from the Fa's perspective.
This is my level of understanding. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
