Showing the Abilities Given by the Fa Instead of 'My' Abilities
(Minghui.org) I saw Master's law body come to me last night when I was considering how to cooperate with fellow practitioners on a task to validate the Fa. Master's law body was huge and I was tiny in comparison.
Master put me in his palm and put a golden yellow robe on me. He then put me into several project teams of various sizes, some with just a few team members, and others with dozens.
I was responsible for different tasks within these teams. I was able to observe myself using the abilities given by the Fa, rather “my own” abilities, in these teams.
What I saw enlightened me that I had previously mixed some factors of “self” into projects, and that I was not purely harmonizing what Master wanted. Instead, I had added my own notions to the work.
The scene also gave me a new understanding of a teaching. Master said,
“As a Dafa disciple, a particle of this Great Fa of the cosmos, you should do that.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference” from Guiding the Voyage)
My new understanding is that a being must display the wisdom and power given by Dafa in any task to validate the Fa. If a being tries to find excuses to alter what Master wants because of a human notion, this is actually validating oneself. But, it is this “self” that we are to let go of in cultivation practice.
“Everything I've been doing during the Fa-rectification and everything I want, to spell it out, are the choice of the future cosmos and the needs of the future cosmos. (Applause) So for the beings of the old cosmos, and this includes all the elements of beings, when it comes to the Fa-rectification and what I choose, all beings' harmonizing and completing things according to my choices and contributing their best ideas and approaches--not to change what I want, but to harmonize and complete things according to what I've said--is the best thought a being in the cosmos could have.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Lantern Festival)
As a reminder to myself and fellow practitioners, the time and opportunities to validate the Fa are limited. We should let go of whatever factors of self we still hold, make fewer mistakes in our work, and be true particles of Dafa.
