Cultivating Diligently with Other Practitioners by Following Minghui
(Minghui.org) When I visit Minghui.org on the Internet I see Master's picture “quietly watching the world from amidst the mountains after leaving New York following July 20th, 1999,” and can sense how Master has been using his amazing power to strengthen our righteous thoughts.
I read articles focusing on how practitioners have improved after obtaining the Fa, and how their cultivation states have evolved through cultivating diligently. Practitioners from all over the world bring together their strong energy through the Minghui website.
Reading Minghui every day allows me to connect with the Fa-rectification process and not get left behind. I hereby thank Master for his saving grace, as well as the selfless contribution of practitioners who support the Minghui website.
I have downloaded many articles related to our divinely inspired culture: Nine Commentaries of the Chinese Communist Party, The Ultimate Goal of Communism, and Dismantling The Party's Culture.
I have copied them on to multimedia cards, and put them into mp3 players that I purchased. I then passed the players to fellow practitioners, so they can use them to help clarify the facts to people.
Helping People Understand the Facts Using Multimedia Cards
One time, I gave a multimedia card to a Christian. I told her that it'd be good for her if she could listen to the information on it. More than a month later, when she saw me again, she asked, “Is what's loaded in here true?”
“Of course,” I replied.
“But it isn’t your Master's voice!” She exclaimed. “I want to listen to what your Master says.”
I downloaded Master's Fa lecture recordings to a multimedia card and gave it to her. Her husband also wanted to listen.
Later on, I bumped into the same person. She was with her daughter-in-law, who was soon to give birth. The daughter-in-law told me that she was a bit scared, because she'd bled a lot when she gave birth to her first child. She was hoping that Master could protect her.
She later told me that as soon as she went into labor she began to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” The birth went very well.
My mother-in-law is in her 80s, and began to practice in 2014. She has been coughing a lot lately and couldn't eat. She was also a bit scared and lacked righteous thoughts. She said that she hadn’t cultivated well. Given her age, she thought she would die soon.
I decided to compile some articles from Minghui that could help strengthen her belief in Dafa. I read them out loud for her, and she listened very carefully. Consequently, her righteous thoughts came forth and she was in good spirits again. Now she is back on track with her cultivation journey.
Starting a Materials Production Site
My cultivation state was lacking before 2008. I knew that Dafa was good, and I did the exercises and studied the Fa. I also clarified the facts to people from time to time. However, I felt that I improved slowly, and I had trouble seeing the inner meanings of the Fa.
One day, I read a sharing article about a practitioner in her 80s printing high-quality brochures to save people. She went to Minghui.org to download materials and then printed them out.
I thought that since I was only in my 40s, I should also do this. We didn't have any truth-clarification materials production sites in our area, so I shared my idea of setting up such a site with local practitioners. They were all very supportive.
I bought a laptop, and other practitioners bought a printer and ink cartridges. They showed me how to use a computer and a printer. Empowered by Master, I managed to learn how to do everything that I needed to.
Striving to Be More Diligent in Cultivation
The laptop helped me check Minghui.org regularly, and I often read practitioners' sharing articles, feeling how diligent and righteous they are.
“Study Fa, obtain Fa,Compare in studying, compare in cultivating,Examine each and every deed,Accomplishing is cultivating.” (“Solid Cultivation” from Hong Yin)
I decided to follow what Master said. I began to put my heart into Fa study, copying the Fa, and doing the morning exercises at 3:50 a.m. every day.
I live in a family of seven people, which includes some elderly members and also young children. I have quite a lot of household chores to take care of, but I still manage to spend most of my day making truth-clarification materials, and use my evenings to copy the Fa until late at night.
Letting go of attachments has become much easier than before. I now understand the purpose of beings entering the human world: to obtain the Fa and assimilate to the Fa. If a person is able to assist Master in rectifying the Fa, that is so sacred.
I feel great that I am able to do things by complying with Master's requirements. When I read on Minghui that some practitioners have memorized and recited Zhuan Falun more than 30 times, I wanted to do that as well.
As Master said:
“Every aspect of xinxing must be upgraded for you to make real progress.” (Zhuan Falun)
As the Fa is so immense, I still have a long way to go. I'll continue to put my heart into practice and working diligently.
