Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day by Showcasing How It Has Touched Our Lives
(Minghui.org) Master taught us in “Be More Diligent:”
“I hope that now, at the end of this process, Dafa disciples will do their utmost to save more people and do even better, such that their mighty virtue becomes even greater. You mustn’t let up, and you must do even better at this. This period of history has been left entirely for Dafa disciples so that they may validate the Fa. In other words, the stage of mankind has been given to Dafa disciples. Don’t be fooled by the fact that everything seems to be business as usual here in this world, or that each nation and peoples are carrying on and interacting just as usual, for all of this exists in fact for Dafa.”
How do we remind people of their predestined relationship with Dafa, and guide them to see past their hectic schedules and discover the real stage and core issue?
World Falun Dafa Day offers a great occasion to do just that. Let's submit articles that showcase how Dafa has touched our lives to help others see that the Fa is everywhere. Dafa has been changing our world, and Dafa can do the same for them if they open up their hearts.
Please refer to the notice that called for article submission and act before the deadline on April 18.
Validating the Fa in a Free Environment
We have all benefited so much from practicing Falun Dafa. Dafa has enabled the elevation of our realms, and along with it, opened up our wisdom to save people and balance our own lives well.
Our learning the Fa and living outside of China is not a coincidence. Here, we do not have the harsh persecution environment that practitioners face in China. Nonetheless the cultivation requirements are the same, and we have the unique opportunity to validate the Fa in a largely free environment.
Falun Dafa transcends cultural and language boundaries and may very well be the way of life in the future. Many Westerners appear to be living completely isolated from the Fa; Falun Dafa is an unfamiliar name to them and something they do not consider to be part of their lives.
However, we know that this is because all humans are in delusion upon descending to the Three Realms. Master has reminded us many times that all people in the human world came from higher levels. They have come to obtain salvation for themselves and their sentient beings because of their firm faith in the power of Dafa. Deep inside, they have a connection with Dafa and have been searching for an answer in this chaotic world that is saturated with depressing news.
Our stories will help readers get to know Falun Dafa and see how Dafa could benefit them.
Shouldering Our Share of the Responsibility
Master told us in “Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles:”
“While cultivating, Dafa disciples' bodies in other dimensions are incredibly gigantic. The dimensions in the Three Realms have been divided among Dafa disciples into so many parts... Let me put it this way, and let me describe it on a larger scale: however many parts the future cosmos will have, that is how much Dafa disciples have to encompass.”
We have seen many great articles from practitioners in China for World Falun Dafa Day. We have to shoulder our own share of the responsibility as well.
For most nations, their cultural background, education, and viewpoints are very different from those in China. After living in such a society for many years, we have a better understanding of the people, as well as the culture, which allows us to find suitable approaches for communicating with people and helping them see what we have seen and benefited from. We can share how Dafa has improved our minds and bodies, and what Truth-Compassion-Forbearance can mean to a person.
The Minghui website has readers from all over the world and all walks of life. Our articles will be translated into other languages, and reach even more readers.
Cultivation is sacred, and an honor for us practitioners. Let us cherish this opportunity to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day by sharing our own heartfelt stories with all who are predestined. After all, this is what we are here for, and we have to do it well.
