[PureInsight.org] Recently, after clarifying the facts to ordinary people, some practitioners in our area felt uncomfortable physically and were in a state of eliminating karma. They thought they were enduring karma for the everyday people that they were trying to save. Such an understanding affected other practitioners and they started to believe that all discomfort and karma elimination when validating Dafa was suffering for ordinary people.
Master told us clearly in "Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference:"
"Question: Whenever some calamities befell human beings, such as '9-11,' the current SARS virus, and the mad persecution against Dafa disciples, or for instance the massive arrest of Dafa disciples on Tiananmen Square on October 1, 2000, my body would suddenly experience strong karma-elimination reactions. But they quickly passed. Was I enduring karma for ordinary people or were there other reasons?
Master: Each and every one of you is in the process of cultivating, so there's really no such thing as your bearing things for others. Maybe the old forces happened to create a situation at those times. The old forces made meticulous arrangements in the past. It's hard for you even just to bear what's your own [karma], not to mention things for others (laughs). But, this doesn't rule out cases where you fail to pass tests well or where you have attachments or do something wrong but haven't realized it and the old forces or evil beings interfere and cause discomfort in your body. Earlier on those kinds of things happened a lot."
My personal understanding is that when clarifying the facts to everyday people, if our hearts are pure, we are able to promote Dafa and expose the evil, and we will feel comfortable and energetic. Most of the time, after clarifying the facts, the sky became clear and translucent, auspicious clouds showed up.
During the process of clarifying the facts and validating Dafa, we should not be attached to our human sentiments. Nor should we look on ourselves as "saviors." This would give evil an excuse to disturb us and undermine our truth-clarification. As practitioners, if we truly study the Fa well and understand the Fa, we are able to do everything we are supposed to do well.
The above is just my understanding. If there is anything inappropriate, please kindly point it out.
