(Minghui.org) As Falun Dafa practitioners in many countries are currently busy promoting Shen Yun, the use of professional marketing methods for the main promotions has played a major role in selling tickets.
However, I have noticed a phenomenon: Some practitioners are focusing on other projects and paying less attention to Shen Yun. This seems to reflect a mentality that it’s not important for practitioners to support Shen Yun promotion.
I think we should pay attention to this. My understanding is that no matter what kind of professional promotion methods we used, we also need every Dafa disciple to support these promotions with their righteous thoughts.
Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, said,
“What determines one’s celestial eye level? It is not that once your celestial eye is opened, you are able to see everything—it is not so. There is still a classification of levels. So, what determines the levels? There are three factors. The first is that one’s celestial eye must have a field going from the inside to the outside, and we call this the essence of qi. What use does it have? It is like a television screen: Without phosphor, after a television is turned on, it is still just a light bulb. It will only have light, but no images. It is because of phosphor that images are displayed.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
I enlightened that just as the essence of qi is indispensable to the level of one’s celestial eye, so are Dafa disciples’ righteous thoughts essential in the success of Shen Yun promotions.
I think that Dafa disciples all know that Shen Yun is the most powerful project to save people. From an everyday perspective, it is imperative to adopt professional marketing methods. From a cultivation perspective, when Shen Yun saves people, there will definitely be interference from the old forces. However, Dafa disciples’ righteous thoughts are powerful weapons, and Master has taught us how to use them to eliminate the old forces. If we are clear about the relationship between professional marketing methods and Dafa disciples’ sending righteous thoughts, we won’t focus on the former to the detriment of the latter.
Regardless of whatever professional promotion methods are suitable for the local area, there must also be a focus on strengthening our righteous thoughts. This is crucial not only for those practitioners directly promoting Shen Yun, but also for practitioners who are not directly involved. When our righteous thoughts become stronger, the energy field will also become stronger. With righteous thoughts from all Dafa disciples, the huge energy field will also help our professional promotion methods achieve the greatest effect.
Since the situation in each region is different, the number of practitioners participating in promoting Shen Yun is also different. However, every practitioner should pay attention to having righteous thoughts for Shen Yun. I believe that the success of the Shen Yun promotions is also an assessment of the local practitioners’ cultivation state. The key success factors for Shen Yun come down to how much attention Dafa disciples give to Shen Yun, how strong the field of righteous thoughts is, as well as using the most effective marketing method for the local area.
Above is some of my understanding. If anything is inappropriate, please kindly point it out.
