(Minghui.org) After I studied Master’s new article “Treat Master’s Family Members Properly,” I realized that the gratitude many practitioners have for Master is limited to the human level.

The most common example is that one is grateful to Master after their health improves or they survive a major accident. Some practitioners experienced smooth sailing in their personal lives, such as finding good jobs, marrying a good person, and having children. For those who just took up cultivation, it’s natural for them to be grateful to Master for such blessings on the human level. When we clarify the truth, we also talk about such examples and many people took up Dafa because of this.

But as we improve in cultivation, our understanding of the Fa should transcend the human level. We should realize that benefits on the human level shouldn’t be our goal in cultivating Dafa or the reason why we continue to cultivate.

But if those who pursue a life of comfort lose their jobs or families due to the persecution or they are hit with tribulations to pay back their karma, will they blame Master for not taking care of them? No matter how long one cultivates, if one can’t be clear on the fundamental reason for cultivating Dafa, they may still make mistakes or go awry.

Editor’s note: This article only represents the author’s understanding in their current cultivation state meant for sharing among practitioners so that we can “Compare with one another in study, in cultivation.” (“Solid Cultivation,” Hong Yin)
