[PureInsight.org] Recently when studying “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa,” I read the following sentences, “But do you realize something? Those who were originally meant to have been saved last year [by Shen Yun, but didn’t go], have lost the opportunity forever. That’s because Fa-rectification is unceasingly forging ahead, step by step, and when it arrives at one cosmic plane it is time for that level of people; when it reaches a certain heavenly kingdom above, or a certain layer of cosmic body, it is time for that group of people to come see [the show], and next time around [when Shen Yun performs], that seat will belong to someone else. Do you realize how many lives have been lost?! Do you know how I feel when I see those empty seats in the theatre?” This reminds me of a story in March 2011, when I was promoting Shen Yun at the Chiayi Performing Arts Centre.
It was the evening of March 29, 2011, and the first Shen Yun performance at Chiayi was about to start. However, there were still over 30 tickets remaining to be sold at the price of NT$2800 and we also encountered some technical difficulties. The theatre only provided wireless Internet while our ticket processing system was on an old computer that required an ethernet connection. Several practitioners worked together, but still could not resolve this. Noticing that we did not have much time left, I began to worry about it. Another practitioner reminded me to send forth righteous thoughts. I thus calmed down and sent forth pure righteous thoughts to the computer, “You are helping us to save people. Now is a critical moment for you to do your job.” Right at that moment, the Internet was restored and we were able to issue tickets on site.
There were still more than 10 tickets left by 4 pm. An elderly couple had come for a walk to the Arts Centre and asked about tickets after seeing the Shen Yun performance information. I told them the only tickets available were the NT$2800 ones. He said it was too expensive and left after hearing that no other tickets were available. Not long after that a practitioner came to refund two tickets with the price of NT$1600 since he could not make it. I told another practitioner to look for the elderly couple, but he could not find them. Not long after that, however, the couple came back themselves saying that someone had told them there were tickets available with a lower price. Several of us who sold tickets at the booth looked at each other and were almost in tears. We knew that Master had helped us again.
This way, with encouragement from Master, we strengthened our righteous thoughts and sold out all the tickets. There were still people who came up and asked if tickets were available.
Shen Yun Performing Arts will come to Taiwan again this year. We have come to understand that as long as we follow Master's words, all the paths have been paved already.
