Get Rid of Attachments Quickly
I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. I remember one day when I was
practicing the second set of exercises along with the music tape and
moving both hands downward from in front of the head to in front of the
lower abdomen, I heard Master's instruction "put down slowly". At that
moment, I realized that not only this exercise movement ought to be
done slowly, I should also slowly put down many attachments that common
people usually have.
Many years have passed. Recently when practicing the exercises, whenever I hear "put down slowly" I feel ashamed. In Zhuan Falun,
Master said that in Buddha Law cultivation practitioners have to boldly
and vigorously forge ahead. Though Master allows us to improve
gradually, we should not be staying in a state of not riding ourselves
of our attachments over a long period of time. In "The Knowing Heart,"
Master has said, "With attachments left behind, the lightened boats
sail swiftly." If we want to catch up to the Fa-rectification process,
we should step forward and let go of all attachments more quickly.
Do Well Whatever We Should Do
Several days ago, a fellow practitioner asked me whether I wanted to
move to New York. I was told that if I have the chance to move there, I
could take part in some specific projects more. To me, it doesn't
matter where we live. As long as we fulfill our responsibilities, we
will be able to reach Consummation and return with Master.
("Predestination Leads Back to Sacred Fruit "from Hong Yin, version B). In Zhuan Falun,
Master said, "We do not require facing certain directions for
practice... ...and practicing in any direction is the same as
practicing to the east, south, west, and north simultaneously." Since
individual practitioners have different conditions and been living with
different environments, we can't all do the same things..
In the end, I want to quote Master's words in "Teaching the Fa at the
Washington DC International Fa Conference" to share with my fellow
practitioners, "Get rid of any attachment you have, and don't think
about anything. Just do everything a Dafa disciple should do and
everything will be covered."
