Looking Within to Find Root Issues
(Minghui.org) Master said, “Dafa disciples are one.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in the Midwest-U.S.)
Selfless help from fellow practitioners is very precious for persecuted Dafa practitioners. However, practitioners need to pay attention to how we offer such help.
A common scenario is that practitioners act like doctors. Upon initial inquiries, they start “prescribing” something for the practitioner in tribulation. The practitioner thinks that everything he hears from fellow practitioners makes sense, but don't know which “prescription” to follow. In the end, the “symptoms” remain or even worsen.
What is the issue here? I think that the main issue is that the practitioners who offer help forget their own cultivation. They forget that Master handles the fundamental issues.
Master said, “Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Zhuan Falun)
If we treat the persecuted practitioner as a member of the one body and cultivate ourselves upon seeing others' problems, we will look inward together and kindly remind each other.
Master will help us locate where we need to improve. As the “root issues” are cleared away, the one body elevates.
