My Understanding of the Maturity of Dafa Disciples

A Falun Dafa practitioner in Toronto

[] In his lectures on Fa, Master often speaks of Dafa disciples becoming more and more mature. I didn’t understand this very well and always wondered why Master spoke of it again and again. I once even interpreted it to mean that Dafa practitioners know how to do things better and handle different situations well.

When reading articles from “The Sixth Internet Experience Sharing Conference for Practitioners in China,” I was often in tears. Every article had touching stories that helped me to understand Master’s Fa principles. In tribulations, the practitioners worked hard to overcome the hindrance of human notions. They constantly improved through looking within, identifying attachments, letting go of attachments, and meeting Dafa’s requirements. Their xinxing (heart/mind-nature) elevation led to the improvement of their environment, including resolving family conflicts, suppressing brutality, helping people know the truth, staying away from danger, and so on. From this, I seem to have gained a better understanding of the Fa principles. Master said, “Ordinary people don’t know that all of this is encompassed by the expression ‘the appearance stems from the mind.’ So, put another way, one’s own factors can in fact change one’s surroundings” (“Fa Teaching Given at the Epoch Times Meeting”). Master also said, “Indestructible righteous faith in the cosmos’s Truth forms benevolent Dafa disciples’ rock-solid, Diamond-Like Bodies, it frightens all evil, and the light of Truth it emanates makes the unrighteous elements in all beings’ thoughts disintegrate. However strong the righteous thoughts are, that’s how great the power is” (“Also in a Few Words,” Essentials for Further Advancement II). When Dafa disciples are gathering together and do things well, the righteous field of every Dafa disciple could cover and influence a large dimension. Teacher said, “Dafa disciples are truly stepping forward out of ordinary humanness” (“Also in a Few Words,” Essentials for Further Advancement II). This is beyond the capability of an everyday person. It is one of the manifestations of a mature Dafa disciple.

Master is forging Dafa disciples, the great enlightened beings of the future.
