(Minghui.org) One morning, my elder sister, who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner, wanted to print the phrases “Falun Dafa is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good” on large-sized paper to make a banner that she would hang on a small tree.

After setting up the printer, she ran a few test prints and they looked good, so she started the print job and left to do something else. When she returned, she found that the colors that printed were different from what she saw on the screen.

She asked me to take a look. The background color, that was supposed to be green, was blue; the characters that were supposed to be yellow were white; and the yellow color was gone. She cleaned the print head but another printing looked the same.

Based on past experience, my sister said that the yellow color represented her cultivation state. So my sister and I started to look within. We realized what was going on.

My sister and I recently went to visit another practitioner who was suddenly experiencing sickness karma. She said that she could not make the Falun Dafa informational materials now, and asked us to move the materials to other places as needed. The next day, we asked some local practitioners to help move the materials to the homes of other practitioners.

When sorting out what we found at her home, I found over 130 CDs, 70 of which were Shen Yun CDs, and more than 60 were other informational CDs that had not been distributed. We were all taken aback, what an omission this was! After talking with her, in addition to learning that she had the attachments of saving face and resentment, I now knew what her omission was.

After we saw the CDs, we looked inward and discovered that we hadn’t done enough xinxing cultivation sharing with her. I really didn't expect that she would still have so many Shen Yun CDs that hadn’t handled according to Master's requirement.

Now that she was experiencing sickness karma and couldn’t continue making the fliers and other materials to save people, I really felt sad for her. When talking with other practitioners, I unconsciously resented her for her inaction that wasn’t based on the Fa.

After my sister and I found our own attachments, we said to the printer: “There is nothing wrong with you. Master used you to remind us to cultivate ourselves.”

Master said:

“… looking within is a magical tool.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference”)

“We were wrong. Thank you for reminding us to look inward.”

After that, I cleaned the print head again. When we started the printer, it instantly printed the page in the proper colors. We both thought that what happened was amazing. Thank you to Master for encouraging us.

After communicating with the local Dafa cultivators in the area, I learned that some hadn’t destroyed the Shen Yun CDs. They came up with various excuses. I wondered if they hadn’t seen the Minghui website editorial about disposing of the Shen Yun CDs.

No matter why they held on to the Shen Yun CDs, I hope they will take the above practitioner’s lesson as a warning, and pay attention to this matter.
