[PureInsight.org] When Teacher
answered questions during the Fa lectures, students from many places
would send their greetings to him in their question slips. Sometimes, a
question slip would contain the names of many different locations. In
the past, whenever I came across those greetings, I would scan through
them very quickly and not pay too much attention. I felt those were
just names of places and had no deeper meanings - I actually did not
meet the requirement of "reading the Fa".
Recently, when I came across those greetings again, I suddenly realised
that they were part of the Fa, and should be read and not ignored. In
fact, Teacher had already told us this but I had ignored it. It was due
to my not learning the Fa well. Teacher said: "A person who truly
cultivates will gain things naturally without pursuing them. All of the
gong and Fa lie in the book, and one will naturally obtain them by
reading Dafa. Those who learn it will change automatically, and they
will already be in the Dao when they read the book over and over
again." (Falun Dafa Essentials for Further Advancement (Seeking Discipleship with Teacher))
In the past, I thought those greetings were just about names of
different places and there didn't seem to be any deeper content.
However, wasn't that a manifestation of my human notion? Every sentence
and every word by Teacher has deeper meanings, because it is the Fa!
Teacher taught the Fa using human words so that we can be enlightened
to the Dao.
After I got rid of the human notion and read the paragraph with a calm
mind, I really enlightened to the Fa principle that I was supposed to
know. As I was reading it, I felt Teacher's compassion - Teacher was
being considerate to his disciples' feelings, despite being short of
time; it was the manifestation of disciples' unshakable faith towards
Teacher and Dafa; it was also a testimony of Dafa being spread widely.
"Dafa is being spread far and wide. Those who hear about it are looking
for it. Those who have obtained it are delighted with it. The number of
cultivators is increasing daily and becoming countless." (Falun Dafa Essentials for Further Advancement (Seeking Discipleship with Teacher))
This is my limited understanding, which I expect other practitioners
have already enlightened to. I am deeply humbled because I have just
