My Thoughts and Enlightenment after Reading “What All Dafa Disciples Must Know”
(Minghui.org) There are always many ways to look at a problem. As a practitioner, we should look at any problem from a practitioner's perspective. When the Minghui website published the notice “What All Dafa Disciples Must Know,” which is about safety issues, I wondered how I should look at them from a practitioner's perspective.
When I first read the article, my excuse was, “I have to use WeChat temporarily due to my circumstances.” It was difficult for me to decide whether or not to do as the notice directed. I thought of seeking advice from other practitioners. But I saw many of them mulling it over as well. Some tried to come up with substitute solutions and some were just unable to let it go. I suddenly awakened: The notice said, “We urge relevant practitioners to stop spreading, following, and persisting in using various excuses.” Was I one of those practitioners?
“And human notions change,The degenerate things purged,Brightness now shines forth.”(“Born Anew” from Hong Yin)
After my mindset changed, my righteous thoughts emerged and Master bestowed upon me wisdom to enlighten to the truth. The majority of Dafa practitioners and their relatives are in China, which is an enormous number of people. Every one of them also has connections to countless beings. Every being faces a choice in the Fa-rectification process, and WeChat software is one of them. If WeChat has been chosen to be eliminated, the practitioners who have used it, whatever their excuses, might obstruct the Fa-rectification, not to mention other, unknown profound arrangements behind it.
Practitioners reacted differently to the notice: Some seemed not to care much about it; some did not understand its meaning and still did things their way; some asked, “How will we live without WeChat?” and some desperately tried to find a substitute. Is this an indication of powerful disturbance among practitioners? It showed that we have strong attachments. Shouldn't we awaken?
In fact, it might not be that bad without WeChat and we might see light from another direction. Many sharing articles on Minghui have mentioned that many practitioners don't use WeChat. Our narrow minds controlled by our attachments, our own opinionated reasons, and our so-called common sense have held us back from doing what we should do.
We should not have any doubts about the notice. Instead, we should follow it without compromise, no more and no less. It might not be as complicated as we imagine. This is a true test of our faith in Dafa.
It is like when the former Soviet Union suddenly fell apart. No matter how gigantic a being is, when it is time to be eliminated by the Fa-rectification process, it will disappear, and tomorrow will be a better world. As practitioners, do we believe it? It is up to a practitioner's heart to decide to deal with the matter using human cunning or wisdom from the Fa. Practitioners are the hope for sentient beings being saved.
Of course, it is impossible for every practitioner to be on the same page. We began our cultivation as everyday people, then became a Dafa student, and later became a Dafa disciple. During this process, we all had different cultivation states and sometimes had arguments or disagreements. Today, we are at the last stage of Fa-rectification. When it is time for us to resolve issues now, we should no longer discuss what should or should not be done. Instead, we should discuss how to implement what needs to be according to the Fa standards and in a timely fashion.
I offer Master's words to help us do better.
“Let each and every thingbe measured against the Fa.Only then, with that,is it actually cultivation.”(“Solid Cultivation” from Hong Yin)
