(Minghui.org) My heart was heavy when I read Master’s new article “Cultivation in Dafa Is Serious” for the first time. I felt I was one of the practitioners mentioned in the article. 

With not enough time to do the exercises and study the Fa, I tended to focus on doing things. For a long time, my cultivation state was not good and I made a major mistake. Given the requirements of this unprecedented period, I think my situation was very serious. Fortunately, Master helped me correct it and helped me regain my confidence. As a result, I was able to spend more time studying the Fa, looking within, and doing the exercises. 

When I read this article again, I truly sensed the purity of Dafa. My understanding is that this article is pointing out the direction of the future cosmos. It is related to saving sentient beings and needs to be carried out. Directly related to our xinxing, this is great and sacred beyond what we can comprehend. After all, the overall Fa-rectification must proceed. 

After reading this article over and over again, my anxiety and heaviness lessened. My heart was filled with the understanding that we need to comply with the requirement of Dafa, which is absolutely pure. For a moment, I saw a transparent boat under my feet and I was on it. The vision only lasted a second or two. 

For practitioners who might be feeling low, I would like to tell them that the most important thing right now is to focus on the future. We should do our best to stay calm and peaceful and walk our paths solidly. We should have faith in the progress of Fa-rectification and that we have the ability to help Master save sentient beings. Some of the processes and arrangements are beyond what we can understand, but we should still walk our paths well and with our hearts. 

During the recent European Falun Dafa Experience-Sharing Conference, I saw a practitioner who was about to go up on the stage and share her experience. This was the first time she’d ever been to a Fa conference. She was very devoted and I was deeply impressed by her smile. I think that Master allowed me to see the sincerity and kindness of a pure heart, which helped me to let go of the attachment I wasn’t willing to give up before. Her smile helped me a lot in recent days. I really mean it—a pure heart can change everything. Let us all purify our hearts. 

When we prepare to tell others about Falun Dafa, we can ask ourselves what worries us or makes us uncomfortable. Are there attachments that we are unwilling to let go of? Do we truly have faith in Master and believe we Dafa disciples have the ability to help people understand the facts? Whether the person we are speaking to reacts negatively or positively should not affect our determination. This is part of the process of cultivation, so we should continue to do it and not be afraid. If you have stopped cultivating and are reading this article, you can resume practicing. The door is open and the future will be good. The cosmos is waiting for you. 

Many important things need to be done, and many projects need the support of practitioners with a pure heart. Even if you may have stopped cultivating for a long time, you should still come back.
