Understandings on Writing Articles for the Online Experience Sharing Conference
(Clearwisdom.net) Writing articles for every online Fa conference allows me to take a fresh look at the path that I have walked since the beginning of my cultivation. As I constantly improve within the Fa, I am able to perceive from a different angle and height for each article that I have written. I once regarded this as something to be proud of, however, today I feel ashamed.
When I wrote an article for the First Mainland China Falun Dafa Practitioners Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference on the Internet, my focus was on the happiness that I had obtained after I started practicing Falun Gong and the physical changes that I had experienced. It reflected my state of just being different from that of everyday people. I was so delighted that I was carried away. In the following online Fa conferences, I displayed human attachments such as the show-off mentality to validate myself or my state of mind when I plunged to a low point after having been persecuted, writing about the persecution from a victim's viewpoint. Looking back, everything I discussed was my understandings from a self-centered point of view.
When participating in soliciting articles for World Falun Dafa Day, I talked about how Dafa practitioners follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to do well in management, so as to manifest Dafa's mighty virtue and Dafa practitioners' compassion cultivated from the Fa. My article was selected and posted on the Minghui website.
Since then, I learned how to write articles for the online Fa conferences: they must be from Dafa practitioners rectifying themselves and saving sentient beings with a clean and pure heart with the Fa principles they had enlightened to. Our basic point must be to validate the Fa and not focus on ourselves.
I understand that each thought in an article is the manifestation of the author's understanding of the Fa principles. It's Dafa practitioners' harmonizing and complementing Dafa on the path that is "a great way without form." ("Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Singapore"), and from their own perspectives. It is wisdom that Master had bestowed upon us because "cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master." (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
I feel that the process of writing articles is also a process of cultivation, in addition to expanding the capacity of our minds. Only by being selfless can one write good articles that validate Dafa.
Regardless of the blessings that come from following a righteous path or the hardships and tribulations that we have been through, I know that our sole aim is to cultivate our hearts. Dafa practitioners are able to transform from being human to divine; it's Master's compassionate and arduous salvation. So our shared responsibility is to fulfill our prehistoric vows and offer salvation to sentient beings. We will make progress together from the opportunity to share our cultivation experiences using the platform provided by the Minghui website.
