[PureInsight.org] Master said, “I have said before that Dafa disciples have all been kings in history, or kings in the heavens…” (“Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa”). That means when assisting Master with the Fa-rectification, we need to have the caliber of a king and do well in saving sentient beings. To achieve this, I think we have to do well in three areas.
Fully follow Master’s words
In “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa,” Master said, “An emperor is the lord of the imperial court, the king of kings; under him are kings. So long as a country was under imperial rule, its king would have been appointed as such by an edict from the emperor, with even the successor of that king having to be designated by the emperor to be legitimate. This owes to the fact that China was the portal through which the different heavenly kingdoms descended to earth to become human; it was the main court to which they came to establish karmic ties in and to govern. Subsequently, at the final phase, they would be able to reconnect with those karmic ties and fulfill their wish.” My understanding is that, when assisting Master with the Fa-rectification today, we cannot each work as individuals. Instead, we have to fully follow Master’s words and meet the corresponding requirements.
A genuine king puts everyone in his heart and he is tolerant. That is, when Dafa disciples work together to validate the Fa, we should be considerate of others and make the Fa the highest priority. This way, there will be no barriers between us for the evil to take advantage of.
The best in various fields and professions
Dafa practitioners are working in almost all disciplines and professions. Whether on the Dafa projects we are involved in, or during daily life, we need to achieve the best results to demonstrate the morale that we are supposed to have. For example, at work we should be the best supervisor or employee; at home, we should be a good father, mother, or child. The world exists today for Dafa disciples to play a leading role. When we do well in these disciplines, everyday people will have a positive attitude towards Dafa practitioners, making it easier for them to be saved.
Whether we distribute truth-clarification materials, clarify the truth, send forth righteous thoughts, or rescue detained practitioners, we have to use our heart and do it to the best of our ability. Many things may appear trivial on the surface, while in reality they are related to whether associated beings in other dimensions can be saved. Therefore, we need to have the purest mindset and get rid of all distractions.
Be fully considerate of others
A king is fully considerate of his people. In Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, Master said, “We require you to be a completely extraordinary person, to completely give up your own interests and to be entirely for others.” That is, we have to let go of ourselves entirely and be fully considerate of others.
When distributing truth-clarification materials, some practitioners tend to place their own safety first and put saving sentient beings second. The same thing happens with face-to-face truth-clarification. In addition, sometimes whenever thinking of doing something to save people, we may relate it to the persecution and even imagine what if such and such a consequence follows. Master said, “If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist.” (Essentials for Further Advancement II)
Regardless of whether we are distributing truth-clarification materials, clarifying the truth, or doing other Dafa projects, when we are fully considerate of others, the materials we give out and the words we speak will carry the purest energy. This way, sentient beings can truly be saved. A genuine king will be fully responsible for his people and is able to sacrifice everything he has. By doing so, he will actually own everything.
Dafa disciples are playing a leading role nowadays in history. Let us do well in all walks of life and fulfill our mission.
Above are some of my understandings. Please point out anything inappropriate.
