My Understandings About Dafa Coordinators
(Minghui.org) Many recent experience sharing articles discuss some issues among Falun Dafa coordinators. I have not served as a coordinator myself, however I'd like to offer a few of my understandings for fellow practitioners and coordinators.
A coordinator in a company or organization is responsible for bringing different elements of a complex activity together, i.e. the planning, organizing and executing of events, that will ensure the job is carried out efficiently.
As for Dafa coordinators, they should bring practitioners into a harmonious environment to assist Master in the Fa-rectification process.
Most Dafa projects need coordinators. A project is like a company and every company needs coordinators to find suitable personnel, distribute tasks and monitor progress.
Practitioners volunteer to work on a Dafa project to save sentient beings. This is very different from ordinary people who seek employment for income. I find that some coordinators take advantage of practitioners to accomplish their own personal goals, often forgetting that practitioners are volunteers.
Some Dafa coordinators have developed strong attachments and some think that they rank higher than other practitioners because they play a leadership role. I believe this is also an arrangement by the old forces to interfere with the Fa-rectification.
“The paths of cultivation are variedBut none is outside the Great Law” (“Unimpeded” in Hong Yin Vol. II)
The process of coordination is part of the cultivation path arranged for coordinators.
A practitioner can be a boss, a teacher, a student, a farmer or a laborer. Their paths of cultivation differ, but like everyone else, they have to cultivate their hearts.
Respecting Master and Dafa
No coordinator should look down on or patronize other practitioners. No matter what a coordinator has accomplished, Master has done a lot more in other dimensions. So in my understanding, a coordinator can't arrange another practitioner's path of cultivation.
In one article on Minghui, the author wrote that the local coordinator's improper behavior caused his/her parents to stop practicing Falun Dafa. If this is true, I believe that the coordinator committed a huge sin against Dafa and has to take responsibility for it.
Reflection of the Cultivation State in the Area
As I understand it, if a coordinator has problems with his/her behavior and is not on the Fa, it may be because the cultivation status of the whole area is not good. If the local practitioners have strong righteous thoughts and are diligent in cultivation, the righteous environment will bring the coordinator back to the right path.
Whether a coordinator or not, we are all Master's disciples, and sentient beings are waiting to be saved. All practitioners should be considerate of each other and cooperate well in assisting Master in Fa-rectification.
The above is from my understandings about coordinators. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
