[PureInsight.org] What is the type of feeling you have when you value others more than yourself? There is no correct way of expressing that kind of feeling.
A few nights ago, I saw one of my fellow practitioners sitting quietly while I worked on the computer. Since I’ve been living outside of China in recent times, he’s looked after me and provided me with a fresh environment for cultivation. He’s discussed with me many issues that I’ve come across during my cultivation. I feel very thankful to him and have a feeling of compassion towards him.
One day I asked him directly, “I’ve contradicted what you’ve said many times, but you’ve never taken it seriously.” He answered, “It’s because I cherish every Dafa practitioner. The environment we are in now is beneficial for Dafa practitioners to gather together. This kind of feeling of cherishing other practitioners is one that replaces other attachments during cultivation. Therefore, I make an effort to foster this kind of feeling.
I’ve come to understand that this kind of thought to cherish other people is a feeling of giving to others and getting rid of greed.
This kind of feeling has deepened my insight into the real meaning of my life. Divine Beings coming from different high realms have created this environment for Dafa cultivation. Perhaps if I value this moment, it means that I value myself and even value this whole world. Contemplating my journey of cultivation, I’ve come to understand: cherishing my opportunity for Dafa cultivation means cherishing my life forever.
