(Clearwisdom.net) After reading the article "Keep Xinxing in Mind when Interacting with Fellow Practitioners" (http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2010/4/17/116149.html), I realized that upon seeing two practitioners in a conflict, harboring resentment towards one of them or taking up sides will only deepen the conflict, and more seriously, it could damage our one body.

Master said in "Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference,"

"Human society never had true principles to guide it before, so man has not resolved his problems via shan. Instead, man has always resolved things through fighting and conquest, and that has thus become man's norm."

What will result from us taking up sides? The more we want to defend one party in a conflict, the more it will deepen the resentment on the other side and expand the gap between the practitioners concerned.

It is inevitable that we come across conflicts, even between good friends. There are bound to be ups and downs as long as we interact with people. When encountering these situations, as long as we take a step back, we will be able to look at the matter in a broader context. If others step in and meddle with the situation, it may only create more chaos.

When we defend one party by criticizing the other, we are only adding fuel to the flame.

Conflicts between people can be complex matters, and who can clearly see the causes behind them? If we don't know why an incident happens, then it's very easy for us to make a mistake by meddling and taking sides, which will create karma and hinder us from elevating to higher realms. Looking back, I wonder how many people I have harmed unintentionally in this way.

When we interact with fellow practitioners, we should not get overly involved or take up sides, as was shared in the article "Keep Xinxing in Mind when Interacting with Fellow Practitioners." We must avoid talking like everyday people, but rather guide our speech with the principles of the Fa. In this way, even if a practitioner wants to complain about someone, he will soon stop when others don't go along with it. We thus won't be moved or involve ourselves in other's conflicts, and thus unwittingly cause interference to the entire body.

Please kindly point out anything improper.
