(Minghui.org) In the past, I often asked myself: “Am I cultivating? Why do I still have so many attachments and a human heart?” 

Several practitioners recently said to me: “Lately I finally know how to cultivate.” I feel the same way. Why is it we are making improvements in cultivation now? I would like to share some of my thoughts. 

From Master’s Fa teachings, we learned that Dafa cultivation starts from the microscopic to the macroscopic, layer by layer, from the inside to the outside; when one layer is well cultivated, that layer is separated.

Therefore, practitioners feel that they suddenly understand a layer of Fa principles, and their bodies and minds react and change, but soon similar things appear again, a bit confused and again not so clear. That is how Dafa cultivation is: layer by layer. 

In reality, the most recurring and most persistent human perceptions are the superficial and outermost notions, experiences, preferences, and pursuits formed after birth. Because this is at the surface level, it is the lowest, but it is the last layer to be cultivated away and rectified in Dafa practice.

Master published the article “How Humankind Came To Be,” unveiling the heavenly secret of the three realms and the most fundamental mystery about human beings. It fully marked the prelude of the Fa rectification of the human world!

Dafa disciples have also reached the point of breaking away from humanness and stepping into the divine cultivation process. Everything is reaching the surface and thus we have the intense feeling that we know how to cultivate now.

Just as the Minghui editors said in “Call for Submissions to Commemorate World Falun Dafa Day 2023,” many practitioners just “want to gain from Dafa,” but “they have somehow been lacking the sense of mission and responsibility for others.”

Master told us:

“Any person who can align with Dafa is truly a good person, and will be rewarded and blessed with health and happiness. And any cultivator who is able to become one with Dafa is an enlightened one—divine.” (“On Dafa,” Zhuan Falun)

I hope that all practitioners will conform to Dafa, grasp this sacred and fleeting opportunity, submit our cultivation experiences, assimilate to Dafa, and succeed in cultivation, to return with Master.
