(Minghui.org) Practitioners in our area discussed the notice published on the Minghui website: “Call for Submissions to Commemorate World Falun Dafa Day 2017.” One said, “I always thought that I had nothing to write about because I hadn't done well in my cultivation, but I realize I have been blocked by my human notions. I would like to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day by writing down my cultivation experiences.”
After we read the notice a few times, we encouraged each other and wrote our drafts that day.
The following is our understanding.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Falun Dafa being introduced to the public. World Falun Dafa Day is celebrated around the world. Writing a sharing article is one way we can praise Master's compassionate, great work. As cultivators who have benefited from Master's salvation, we can't keep silent.
Writing down what we've experienced while cultivating is one way to participate in the global effort to clarify the truth and offer salvation to sentient beings. We have to let go of our selfish thoughts and do this.
Our personal experiences of having our health improved and morals uplifted through cultivating ourselves testify to Master's compassion and how great Falun Dafa's principles: Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are.
When we say, “I have nothing to write about” that isn't exactly true. We've all experienced many amazing things under Master's guidance that we can write about. We have been cultivating ourselves and improving our xinxing for years, so we view the way we handle things in life as ordinary. However, it's extraordinary in the eyes of non-practitioners. In today's society, Dafa disciples don't follow the crowd to seek fame and fortune, but put others first, and look inward for our own shortcomings when we encounter conflicts. It's not something most ordinary people can do.
For example, Dafa disciples decline bribes at work and keep our integrity. We don't fight about family issues. Many of us had serious diseases, but got well after we cultivated ourselves according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. We should write down our stories. Every story is a record of Master's and Dafa's greatness, and will play a role in clarifying facts of Dafa.
The sentient beings who have a predestined relationship with every cultivator are waiting for this cultivator's story. Let's pick up a pen, validate the benefits of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and tell our stories to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day!
