My Understanding of Reviewing Articles Before a Fa Conference is Held
(Minghui.org) The publication of "Giving Speeches Amounts to Disrupting the Fa," published by the Minghui Editorial Board, deeply touched all practitioners. In this article, the Minghui Editorial Board suggests that Fa conferences must not be held too frequently, and papers must be screened so that papers which promote and elevate words and actions not in accordance with the Fa are not presented at the conference. I would like to share my understandings on this. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
How should an experience sharing conference be held, to ensure that it truly helps the attendees to improve and elevate as one body? Teacher has given us clear directions. Over the past few years, there have been many experience sharing conferences in China, but how many were held according to Teacher's requirements? Especially during recent years, some practitioners with strong attachments have been organizing experience sharing conferences and spoken about themselves at those conferences. This clearly shows their attachments, and fosters attachments in other practitioners, affecting the cultivation states of many.
Following Master's teachings, before any conference, we should make certain that every paper is reviewed. This is a cultivation issue and also an issue of respecting Master and the Fa. Before an experience sharing conference, practitioners should prepare their papers, and only a select few should be read at the conference.
The act of writing an experience sharing paper is also a cultivation process, so everyone who participates in the Fa conference should write one. While writing the paper, one needs to keep a calm mind.
After the writing is complete, practitioners should review them together. This is a process of coordination. While writing and reviewing articles, we should have a serious and sincere attitude about the Fa conference, which has already played an important role. If every one of us is calm and compassionate, and prepare for the experience sharing conference beforehand, then we will certainly avoid unhealthy phenomena such as being insecure and agitated. We need to avoid breeding attachments and disrupting the Fa.
Confusing others by disrupting the Fa is a huge sin. In order for Teacher to not be concerned about us in this regard, every true disciple must walk his or her own path well.
We should proceed carefully and treasure the opportunity bestowed by Teacher. Matters should not be handled in an extreme manner. It has been pointed out on the Minghui website, in "Giving Speeches Amounts to Disrupting the Fa," that practitioners who have strong attachments and face danger need to wake up. It doesn't mean that those practitioners can no longer cultivate. As long as cultivation is not yet over, there is a chance for them to come back. Practitioners around them should use this opportunity to look within and treat them with kindness (Shan).
We hope that all practitioners treasure the last leg of the Fa-rectification and do the three things well. The above is my personal understanding. Please point out anything inappropriate.
