[PureInsight.org] Today, I participated in a Falun Dafa truth-clarification activity and in the process came to some new understandings on cultivation.
When I saw the stream of people racing by, many of them (especially Chinese people) not taking our materials, I was very worried. I thought in my mind: “What is happening today is what you have been waiting for one lifetime after another. Can’t you slow your pace and pay a little attention to the most important thing in your whole life?”
Gradually, all complaints and notions disappeared from my mind. What was left was only compassion and righteous thoughts. I thought: “I come here purely for you. No matter what your preconceived notions or how you look at me, I just want to help you break through any of the elements that block you. I am bringing a bright future for your eternal life…”
Slowly, the situation became better, and many people started to pay attention and ask questions.
From this, I also realized that the state of my mind is critical. When I had this or that kind of everyday thoughts, how could my words and actions have the effect of saving sentient beings?
During that time, I also thought about how I did in my daily life and at my job. I saw that I often used a human mind to evaluate or judge other people or things. Sometimes, I even complained or whined. In fact, all lives came here for Dafa. The truth is far from what people can see with human notions. When we do not do well, we truly waste opportunities one after another.
Thinking of this, I made up my mind to do even better from now on.
