(Clearwisdom.net) After having practiced Falun Dafa for years, I came to understand that it was the attachment of fear that prevented me from clarifying the truth. Superficially, it may seem that external pressure is what causes practitioners to have the attachment of fear. However, if we dig deep inside, we will find that there are more attachments hidden behind the fear.

One day, I sat down and analyzed the reason for my fear and how it was generated. At an ordinary level, only people who do bad things should feel fear and panic. But, I am not an ordinary person. I am more than just a good person, I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Telling people the facts about Falun Dafa is doing the best and most righteous thing. Why should I still be afraid? I found that the root cause of my fear was selfishness. I was afraid of being persecuted and losing out on things that I cared about. I was afraid of losing my job, my family, my freedom and my life in ordinary society. All those things were holding me back and added to my fear. This selfishness was the fundamental cause of my fear, and it interfered with my clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings.

When I looked deep inside, I found that fear actually came from selfishness. I couldn't let go of the attachments to myself. If we want to disintegrate fear, we have to dig out the root cause buried deep inside, let go of our selfishness and attachments to fame, personal gain and qing. In ordinary society, we should face everything around us with dignity and maintain normal relationships with others. Doing things with a pure heart makes all the difference. Of course, we can only achieve good results through solid cultivation.

During cultivation practice, I gradually came to understand that when we truly have no fear, we will not lose anything. We will not lose the things that we have been blessed with as Dafa practitioners. Our Teacher is beside us all the time, protecting us and taking care of us. No one can take away a true practitioner's job, family, freedom or the daily life that has been forged by Dafa.

Teacher told us to understand the Fa from the perspective of the Fa instead of in an emotional way. No matter what we encounter, we should view it with righteous thoughts and always keep in mind, “Dafa Disciples’ Righteous Thoughts are Powerful” (from Essentials for Further Advancement II) and disintegrate fear with righteous thoughts.

When a practitioner achieves the realm of “In life, nothing sought, In death, regretting naught” (“Nothing Kept”, from Hong Yin) he will truly disintegrate fear fundamentally and walk on the divine path.
