Practitioners Exchange Insights
Wisdom and abilities originate from righteous faith in Dafa. In practice, when we Fa-rectification Dafa disciples cannot make full use of our abilities and wisdom, it is not caused by external conditions, elements, or the environment where we live. It is a problem within us. We should not seek the answer outside, but look inward. The problem is just caused by us. Our "selves" act like a lock, which locks up our wisdom and abilities. Indeed, Dafa has given us limitless abilities and boundless wisdom. It is simply that many layers of deviated postnatal human notions and fundamental attachments block us. We cannot see the truth of the universe and our abilities are locked up. In fact, there constantly exists such a problem that the degree in which one believes in the Fa affects the process of Fa-rectification. However resolutely we believe in Dafa, that's how much its power will manifest. Fundamentally, there is an issue of how one enlightens to the Fa. Enlightening deeply and thoroughly will enable us to help Fa-rectification in the vaster cosmos and have opportunities to make more use of its magnificent power.
