It’s Not about Whether It's Hard, It’s about Whether You Believe in the Fa

August 13, 2011 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner from Mainland China

(Clearwisdom.net) Today I studied Zhuan Falun and enlightened to the deeper principles of Masters Fa.

"Until he cultivates to a higher level he’ll think that those things don’t exist and he won’t believe in them. That’s the result of his level, and his thinking can’t elevate." (Zhuan Falun)

I suddenly realized that the key issue when facing any problem is not whether it is difficult, but whether you believe in the Fa.

For example, say when you are studying the Fa, you are sleepy, and you feel that it's hard to continue. If you say, “I believe in Dafa's power, and I need to overcome this tribulation” and if you truly believe in Dafa and firmly resist the desire to sleep, you will really no longer feel sleepy.

You want to practice the exercises, but you are tired and feel that it's hard to do it. But if you say that you believe doing the exercises is the best way to recuperate, and you truly believe it, and you then do the exercises, you will not feel tired and you will right away feel full of energy.

From these two examples alone, every practitioner can tell when facing any problem it's not about whether it is difficult, it's about whether you believe in the mighty power of the Fa. It's about whether you truly want to follow Master's requirements. If you believe in Dafa, difficult things will become easy. If you do not believe, an easy thing will develop into a complicated tribulation. Isn’t this the truth?

All through our cultivation we find ourselves in these situations.

Master said at the end of Zhuan Falun:

"For every one of you who makes up his mind to cultivate, you will be able to endure things, and when your personal welfare is on the line, you will be able to let go of your attachments, and you will be able to take those things lightly. As long as you can do that it’s not hard, in fact." (Zhuan Falun)

It's actually like this. It won't be difficult if we truly believe Master and follow Master's requirements. The key issue is whether we believe in Master and Dafa deeply enough.

True belief is the foundation of our cultivation. Otherwise, everything is like water without a source or a tree without roots.
