(Minghui.org) An eighty-year-old practitioner in our area lives alone and became blind five years ago. Practitioners routinely go to her home to read Master's teachings and talk about their experiences.

After I talked to her in early November 2021, I decided to move in for a longer time and read Master's teachings to her. When I mentioned this to the other practitioners, they had two opinions. Some thought it was a good idea. Others disagreed and said that I should not move in with her.

Master said,

“Different levels have different Fa” (Lecture one, Zhuan Falun)

“I can tell you this: what you do to achieve some personal goals of yours and satisfy your own interests and desires are attachments, whereas the things you do for the public, for the common good, for others, or in trying to do a good job at work and school, are what you should do.” (“Teaching the Fa and Answering Questions in Guangzhou,” Explaining the Teachings of Zhuan Falun)

I felt that I should do this because if another practitioner has difficulties, I should help. So I packed some clothes and brought rice, vegetables, eggs, and cooking oil with me.

After a few days, another practitioner came and said that I should not stay there. The blind practitioner told me that she would talk to her. They talked for more than two hours. I stayed in a bedroom and read the Fa for a while, then I washed some clothes and hung them out on the balcony. The entire time, I could hear voices but did not get what they were saying. I guessed Master blocked the words from entering my ears.

I stayed there for about 50 days, during which time the other practitioners came to read the teachings as usual. I told them I would go home before New Year’s day. When she heard my plan, the practitioner who came to tell me to leave, returned. This time she harshly poured out all her thoughts and disagreements in a raised voice.

I knew this must be something to test my xinxing so I didn’t defend myself or explain. I quoted Master’s poem,

“He’s right,And I’m wrong”(“Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong,” Hong Yin III)

She suddenly noticed her attitude was aggressive and apologized to me.

What alerted me was that she said Master had been giving hints in her dreams, asking her to say these things to me.

My understanding is that a practitioner should be careful and not treat others irrationally with one’s own attachments and personal understanding, even saying that Master told them to say certain things.

Each practitioner has a different level of cultivation, understands the principles of the Fa differently, and has a different path of cultivation. My understanding is that a practitioner should not impose the principles they have enlightened to, on other practitioners.
