Problems Are Readily Resolved When We Cultivate Well
(Clearwisdom.net) After the persecution began in 1999, practitioners in China have experienced varying degrees of interference and losses in many aspects of their lives. After some practitioners were illegally detained, their children had to be raised by their relatives, seriously disrupting their studies. Some practitioners were fired from their jobs because they would not renounce their belief, and have no means to earn an income after being released and returning home. They face great financial difficulty and are constantly worried about how to support and raise their children.
We understand from the perspective of the Fa that all difficulties will be readily resolved, as long as we elevate ourselves within the Fa, cultivate well and follow the path arranged by Master. If we can do this, Master will definitely give us the best arrangements.
I know a practitioner in Beijing who was sent to a forced labor camp in September 2003. Her son had just begun junior high school at the time, and his grades in elementary school weren't very good. After she was sent to the camp, there was no one to supervise her son and encourage him to study well. So his academic studies deteriorated. This practitioner was determined not to give up her belief in the labor camp, and used righteous thoughts to validate the Fa to her son. He began to study the Fa, and his grades kept improving. When she was sent to a forced labor camp for the second time, her son had already begun high school, and he was ranked as the tenth best student in his grade.
This practitioner was persecuted in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and another labor camp in Beijing, but due to her strong righteous belief in Master and the Fa, she was able to return home. Her son also easily passed the examination to enter a university in Beijing.
“Also, a lot of our students are concerned about many things, all kinds of stuff. In fact, once you think about those things your realm has dropped. Don't think about anything, and don't worry about anything. Master is compassionate, and he'll definitely arrange for you what's the best. (Applause) You don't need to think, "That's Master being merciful to us," because it's what you've achieved through cultivation, and it results from your own mighty virtue. That's why Master does it for you.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Vancouver, Canada, in 2003”)
When we encounter difficulties and interference, our thinking tends to focus on how to resolve that issue. The old forces will grab this opportunity to create interference for us. It will keep us mired in ordinary affairs, and cause us to neglect doing the three things well. In the course of cultivating and validating the Fa, we will run into many trials and tribulations. As long as we cultivate well according to the requirements of Dafa, everything will be easily resolved.
Fellow practitioners, please compassionately point out anything inappropriate.
