Believe in Master and Dafa
(Minghui.org) I believe the most important thing for Falun Dafa practitioners is to believe in Master Li and Dafa. However, not all practitioners have a clear understanding of what this means.
Some practitioners will say, “Just do what Master tells us.” This is a true statement, but it also has a broader meaning.
I believe that when practitioners don’t recognize Master’s mighty virtue and Dafa’s boundless power, they fall short in believing in Master and the Fa.
This can be seen in the case of a practitioner who was surprised to learn that Master can give practitioners a new organ. In her article, “To Fellow Practitioners Who Are Facing the Test of Life and Death” published on Minghui.org, the author said, “I received inspiration from reading a practitioner’s sharing. Teacher gave him a new internal organ right after the old forces stole internal organs from him. I suddenly realized that Teacher could give me a healthy pancreas, too.”
God created humans, so it is easy for him to change or give us new organs. In fact, it only takes a thought from Master to create divine beings and the universe.
Another example of not believing in Master involved an elderly practitioner who was in poor condition. She was concerned that she would present a bad image of Dafa. I thought that her concern was an unnecessary obstacle.
I asked her and another practitioner, “What is the first thing a Dafa disciple should do?” While the elderly practitioner was thinking, the other practitioner replied, “Believe in Master and the Fa.” I then asked, “What does that mean?” Neither one knew how to answer.
I said that her concern about presenting a negative image of Dafa was not believing in Master and the Fa, so she should immediately eliminate that thought. “If you are a vice-president of the world's number one company, making tens of millions of dollars a year, would you be worried about having no money and no future? Dafa can rectify the cosmos and create a universe. After an everyday person reads Zhuan Falun, their name is removed from hell. As practitioners, we cultivate based on Dafa. We are fortunate to become practitioners, so we should only bring a positive influence.”
Believing in the Fa Brings Good Health
“Dafa is the wisdom of the Creator.” (On Dafa, Zhuan Falun)
“But the Fa is all-powerful, and with everything It is perfectly all-encompassing. And after all, cultivators have Master looking after them.” (“Dafa Is All-Encompassing,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)
The Fa's immense power is beyond our imagination. I can personally attest to this. I was arrested and imprisoned for several years. Many prisoners often suffered from malnutrition and vitamin deficiency due to the horrible food, poor air quality, and not enough sunlight. Master's Fa helped me overcome these difficulties.
“Virtually every kind of matter that makes up the universe’s dimensions is found in the kind of higher energy that we develop.” (The Third Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Doing the Dafa exercises, I was able to resolve the issue of not getting enough nutrients and vitamins. I firmly believed this and continued to do the exercises while imprisoned. When I was released, I was in good health and looked even better than when I had graduated from high school.
By sharing my thoughts, I hope practitioners can improve our understanding of believing in Master and Dafa.
