(Minghui.org) I’m a college student and I have been practicing Falun Dafa for three years. After I recently read some articles on the Minghui website about reciting the Fa, I realized I was rushing through the process.

I skipped over words if I could not memorize them. Thus I was not improving in my cultivation.

I tried to recite the Fa from the beginning today, but when I got to the fifth paragraph, I kept skipping the word “genuine” or I would say the wrong word.

This led me to think about my cultivation state, and I realized that I have not behaved like a genuine practitioner. I haven’t understood the Fa fundamentally or in a rational way.

I’ve also had lots of distracting thoughts; it was as if my notions have been controlling me. I feel that cultivation is a process through which one sees oneself clearly.

All the sorrow, dissatisfaction, and attachments are not even worth mentioning, because they are not my true self. When I was able to see that, I felt I was elevating in my cultivation.

Thank you, Master, for your benevolent protection and for strengthening my righteous thoughts.
