(Minghui.org) After reading Master Li’s two new articles, “Cultivation in Dafa Is Serious” and “Stay Far Away From Peril,” I felt very sad and ashamed. The issues mentioned in the articles weren’t new. Still, because we weren’t doing well, Master published the articles on consecutive days to remind us of the serious shortcomings of some practitioners.
This indicates to me that things have reached a dire stage. It is not about a few practitioners; many of us are already in a dangerous situation. At the last moment of Fa-rectification, the most critical criterion is whether we can make it to the end.
Master got right to the point when he wrote:
“Dafa is here to save people at the end times; Dafa is cultivation. Although some individuals are within the environment of Dafa disciples, they haven’t actually entered into genuine cultivation, and at crucial moments, they always use human attachments, human notions, and human emotions to evaluate things ...”
“In cultivation, the injustice that “humans” suffer and “humans” being persecuted by the evil—that’s Master protecting you while at the same time enduring the sinful karma for you. Master is not indebted to you!” (“Stay Far Away From Peril”)
Every sentence in Master’s new articles touched my heart deeply. I settled my heart down and searched within to see if my cultivation was adequate.
I remembered a vivid dream I had two nights before. I came across a vast, lofty, extremely steep mountain, which was impossible to climb. It blocked my way, so I could not move further. I was shocked. At that point, I woke up. Now I realize what went wrong.
The situation went like this. I felt that this summer was unbearably hot in a way I hadn’t noticed before. When I was printing Dafa materials at home, five printers and two computers were running simultaneously, which added to the heat. I could not settle my mind while studying the Fa because I felt like I was in an oven. When I turned the air conditioner on, the air felt too cold. No matter what I did, I could not find a comfortable setting. I began to have negative thoughts: how long would this last? Then, my attachments to time and comfort emerged. Master must have seen my attachments and used the dream to enlighten me.
Just as Master Li said:
“But this dimension provides people with this kind of body, our flesh body. Once they get this body, they cannot put up with it if it gets cold, hot, tired, or hungry. In any case, it is suffering. When you are ill, you suffer. The purpose of going through birth, old age, illness, and death is to allow you to repay karmic debts through suffering. You are given another opportunity to see whether you can return to the origin. Therefore, human beings have dropped into a maze.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
Wasn’t it me that Master was talking about? I felt so ashamed. Master has endured so much for me, how could I still complain about a little discomfort? I should be grateful.
Over the past 20 years of cultivation, several times people reported me for distributing materials with information about Falun Dafa. But each time, with Master’s protection, I returned home safely. I once underwent a body purification process and could not eat or drink for ten days; if I was not a cultivator; how could I have handled that? Master cleansed my body, and I have been illness-free ever since.
I am not the only one who has benefited from Dafa cultivation. My husband and son have escaped several major car accidents without injury.
In an earlier article, Master talked about some of the many things he has done for us:
“In the several years of your cultivation, I have not only borne an incredibly great deal for you, but also constantly given you hints for your improvement, looked after your safety, and settled the debts that you owed at different levels so that you could achieve Consummation. These aren’t things that just anyone can do, nor can they be done for ordinary people. The problem is just that those people are being too irrational and don’t know to treasure Dafa and the opportunity to cultivate.” (“Drive Out Interference,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress II)
Master also said:
“And so Master completely removed Dafa disciples’ names from the Three Realms, from the human world, and from the netherworld, including Hell. From that moment, Dafa disciples’ lives were governed by Dafa alone, and they would no longer enter into reincarnation, and even if they had committed sins, they would still not be governed by Hell.” (“Cultivation in Dafa Is Serious”)
Master has endured tremendous karma and pain for us. We are fortunate to be Dafa disciples in the Fa-rectification period who are envied by all beings in the cosmos. This is an opportunity that has never occurred in all eternity. That little bit of suffering that we endure truly amounts to nothing. We have to cherish it.
During the last leg of the Fa-rectification period, I will catch up and be more diligent in order to repay Master for his compassionate salvation.
