About Fame and Self-Interest

Zhao Qian

PureInsight | November 15, 2004

Whether one feels cultivation is easy or difficult

Depends on his view of fame and self-interest, the top two enemies of cultivation

When one immerses oneself in human sentimentalities

He is overwhelmed by worldly affairs and feels more and more lost

Great fame passes by like fluffy clouds

Self interest moves around like drifting smoke

When the clouds and the smoke dissipate

One is left with nothing and sighs with despair

Since we are cultivating Dafa today

In our hearts we know what is right and what is wrong

Get rid of impure thoughts in everything we do

Remove ourselves from the pursuit of fame and self-interest

Clear our hearts and our minds

Things around us naturally improve

To have everything flow in perfect harmony

We must let things follow their own natural courses
