Young Practitioner: Keeping a Pure Heart
(Minghui.org) I’m a young Western Falun Dafa practitioner. I was fortunate to be born into a family of Dafa practitioners. My parents both practice Falun Dafa. I started cultivating when I was little. My parents read Dafa books to me before I could read. After I grew up, I started to study the Fa, do the exercises, and send forth righteous thoughts with my parents.
I have participated in Dafa activities and parades since I was young. My older sister, younger brother, and I distribute Dafa informational fliers. When I was little, I was too shy to approach strangers, but I knew that was an attachment. If I didn’t tell them the facts about Falun Dafa, they might miss the chance to be saved, so I often remind myself to let go of my attachment and do my best to help Master offer salvation to people. If someone doesn’t accept a flyer, my sister, brother and I send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference behind the person. We also look within ourselves for our own attachments, because they can block people from learning the facts of Dafa.
I’m lucky to have a great cultivation environment in my family. My parents don’t give us any electronic devices. When I started school, my parents gave me a basic cell phone, so I could contact them. It’s great because I am not interfered with by bad things on the Internet. We don’t watch television at home. There is no TV in our house.
If we kids want to watch a movie, our father lets us watch it on his laptop. We watch movies that depict traditional stories. My parents first watch the movies before they let us watch them. The movies we watch have to have righteous main characters, and the stories must show good moral values and righteous beliefs, with good conquering evil. I’m very thankful for my parents’ careful selection of movies. As a result, we are able to keep our pure hearts. It also keeps the debased content from everyday society from invading our minds.
I never have any objection to my parents’ rules and limits concerning electronics, because I clearly know that my parents are helping me, so I can spend more time on Fa study, doing the exercises, and experience less interference. I especially thank my parents for leading me on a straight cultivation path.
I thank Master for arranging such a pure cultivation environment. I will work harder on cultivating myself and do my best to help Master offer salvation to sentient beings.
