[PureInsight.org] Recently I read a few articles about some fellow practitioners studying three lectures of Zhuan Falun a day and I became motivated to do so as well. When I actually started to do so, I found it was not as difficult as I had thought it would be. There is no secret. All I have been doing is just to study the Fa and think of nothing else. As long as I persevere in studying the Fa, I will gradually enter tranquility. I will usually become very peaceful when I come to the second lecture of the day or even in the middle of the first lecture. I was also surprised that I could finish studying a lecture faster than I had thought. I also had a better understanding of the Fa and experienced what it felt like to be dissolved into the Fa. During the Fa study, I discovered many of my attachments, which inspired me to remain diligent in my Fa study. Sometimes a thought of stopping and taking a break would come to my mind. Sometimes I would feel very sleepy. But I insist on ignoring these thoughts and distractions and continue to study the Fa. After I finish studying three lectures, I always have a blissful feeling.
On the fifth evening when I started to study three lectures of Zhuan Falun a day, I went to a group practice site to practice Falun Gong exercises. From the very beginning, I felt myself impervious to the noises around me. I was able to follow the pace of Teacher's instructions in the exercise music. When I was practicing Penetrating the Two Cosmic Extremes, I felt my arm movements becoming more relaxed and natural. My movements throughout the exercises were neither too fast nor too slow. For the first time in three years, I was finally able to practice Falun Gong exercises in gentle, slow and curved movement. Although the four standing exercises are very gentle and slow, my body became very warm. When I sat down afterwards, I felt an air blowing out of my body and I felt wonderful. While I was practicing the sitting meditation, I felt very relaxed. My arms felt weightless and my mind was clear and blank. Time flew when I practiced the sitting meditation that evening.
When it was time to send forth righteous thoughts that evening, I no longer had difficulty concentrating. I felt very calm, peaceful yet determined.
After having studied the Fa diligently for a week, I truly experienced these words of Teacher's:
Teacher said, "All the gong and Fa lie in the book, and one will naturally obtain them by reading Dafa." (From "Seeking Discipleship with Teacher" in Essentials for Further Advancement.)
Teacher said, "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while transforming gong is done by one's master." (From "The Issue of the Celestial Eye" in Lecture Two of Zhuan Falun.)
