Learn to Cherish

[PureInsight.org] In this vast sea of people, it is only through a predestined relationship that you and I will meet, or even become friends and accompany each other. Together we walk on this boundless and arduous path. The human world is impermanent. Our meeting can sometimes be separate or together. But if we are bound by this predestined relationship, we will learn to cherish it. Whether this bond will last a long time or be gone in a flash, I will have no regrets.

I have often heard people say,” A person’s whole life is to come to live and to love. That is enough.” I think it is much more meaningful if you add, “to cherish.” The meaning of life is its process! It is another matter whether our wishes are fulfilled or not. It is because everything is arranged by gods, based upon our predestined relationships, our karma, and the overall arrangement of the whole society. How can it follow our will? All we can do is to cherish this hard-earned predestined relationship, whether it is to do with our work, our career, our family, or the people we love.

Why do some people only know to cherish things after they have lost them? When we have a predestined relationship we often do not see its significance. It could be just like the saying that we are already on the mountain but we are not aware of it. When we have lost it, only several years later do we realize exactly what we have lost. It doesn't matter what kind of predestined relationship it is. When we encounter it, we should carefully examine it with rationality. If it worthy of cherishing, we should really cherish it. Even if it ends up not being anything of consequence, we will have no regrets. It is because we have wholeheartedly cherished the hard-earned relationship.

When a Falun Gong practitioner tells you the truth, or when you try to understand the truth about Falun Gong through other channels, please discern right and wrong! When you cherish this predestined relationship, you are actually cherishing yourself.

I’d like to end this article with a poem entitled, “Predestined Relationship in the Human World:

In this mundane world full of complication and temptations
It looks as if we encounter each other by chance
Or in a very ordinary way
It seems uncomplicated.
Perhaps it was arranged for this day a long time ago
If you open up your long idle memory
You will find
We have endured countless sufferings through endless lifetimes in this mundane world
And we have made many oaths
Perhaps we once roamed all over together
Perhaps we were once friends in poetry
Perhaps we once fought together for our country
Perhaps we were once bandits hiding in the mountains and lakes
There are many, many more perhaps
It is actually by forming a predestined relationship
That we meet here today
When we meet
I sincerely wish you will keep “Falun Dafa is Good” in your heart
I say to you quietly to quit the Chinese Communist Party to have a safe future
We have met life after life
And formed a predestined relationship
It is all for this day
In order to tell you the truth today when Falun Dafa spreads all over the world
To tell you that your life is waiting for this day
It is only by knowing the truth that you will have a glorious tomorrow
This is truly forming a predestined relationship
