Letting Go of Attachments to Validating the Self While Doing Media Work
A practitioner shared her experience of gradually eliminating the attachment to validating herself, and improving her xinxing while doing layout work for The Epoch Times newspaper.
She said, “I used to think solely of validating myself instead of the Fa, and I didn't want to take criticism, but since I participated in doing layout for the newspaper, I got rid of this attachment bit by bit. I had never done things such as layout, design, and photography, and I spent a lot of time doing these things, but the results were seldom satisfactory, and I needed to redo them. Worse yet, the newspaper couldn't publish my work. While making corrections, I learned to accept others' criticism without complaints, and gradually my performance improved, and the chief editor made fewer and fewer corrections, but I still need to keep learning.”
“I'm grateful to Master for providing me with such a good cultivation environment in doing the media work, letting me realize that I should have a heart of saving people, helping me think of sentient beings in doing everything, and thinking of what I do must manifest the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Regardless if it is doing layout, editing, or clarifying the truth, we must display the wonderfulness of Falun Dafa.”
Setting Up a Practice Site to Introduce Falun Dafa to the Community
A couple practitioners talked about their experiences setting up a practice site to help fellow practitioners and introduce Falun Dafa to the community.
They shared how they relinquished their attachment of shyness in the process of introducing Falun Dafa to the community, and also witnessed the goodness of Falun Dafa. They said, “As time passes, cultivating Falun Dafa has become a regular daily activity for our entire community. People all know that Falun Dafa is a good practice for strengthening health, and it is free of charge. We met more people with different backgrounds each time. When they organized some health or other healthcare expos, they invited us to take part. Thus each time we tried our best to help more people learn about our practice.”
New Practitioners Experience Physical and Mental Changes While Cultivating
Ms. Ding began practicing Falun Gong three months ago. She said that she had been tortured by illnesses so severely that she didn't even have the strength to speak before practicing Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners introduced her to the practice, and she gave it a try and began practicing. She improved physically and mentally daily, and she has now generally recovered. She is grateful to Master for saving her. She introduces Falun Dafa to people around her with her own experience, and hopes more people learn about the facts and benefits of the practice.
Ms. Weng shared her experience of beginning to practice Falun Gong, eliminating selfishness, and saving people in a way acceptable to different people. She found Falun Dafa after reading a book about Mayan Prophecy. She recognized Falun Dafa as the path of cultivation she had been looking for. She had previously been disheartened after a Chinese person displayed a bad attitude toward her as she told him about Falun Gong. With a deepening of her cultivation practice, she realized that in order to help us obtain and understand the Fa, Master has taught us from different angles and in various ways. We Dafa disciples must have compassion, clarify the truth in a manner that is acceptable to different people, and not be affected by adverse reactions, so as to be able to save the sentient beings.
The Fa conference concluded at 7:30 p.m. Many practitioners attending the conference said they had benefited a lot, and found where they fell short from listening to the practitioners' experience sharing, and deepened their understanding of Dafa. Many practitioners realized the importance of letting go of self and cooperating as a whole. They are determined to stride forward more diligently and play a bigger role in assisting Master in the Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings.
