Shen Yun Promotion: Letting Go of Human Notions When Choosing Billboard Sites
I recently joined a project to promote upcoming Shen Yun performances in my city. My role was to help choose locations on busy roads to put up billboards promoting the show. On the first day I was very nervous, but my husband—also a practitioner—asked me to go with him anyway. We chose a spot, got out of the car, and knocked on a door. There was no one inside. We went to another house, but still nobody was there. After we visited the third house, there was someone inside, but she was afraid the billboard might not be accepted by the community. When walking towards the fifth house, I suddenly remembered Master’s words in “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa,” “We really do have some people who have done a great job, who have gone about things in a very natural and poised manner in upscale neighborhoods. And when they’ve spoken with people, they have been quite at ease. Instantly the other party has been delighted, just as if they’d been waiting for you. That really is the case. There has been a great deal of groundwork done in advance. All that’s missing is your carrying things out with righteous thoughts. Yet you haven’t had the righteous thoughts that it takes.” I immediately felt relaxed and happy. We approached door naturally and knocked. My husband explained to the owner why we came. The owner was very happy, as if she had been waiting for us for a long time. This way, we found the first billboard location. Both my husband and I were very encouraged. With righteous thoughts, we found another location soon afterwards.
Since then we always sent forth righteous thoughts in advance when going out to promote Shen Yun. There was one person who, on hearing us talking about Shen Yun, said he had heard about Shen Yun previously from a club presentation. He also said he liked it very much. From this, I came to understand that Master has helped pave the path and only needs us practitioners to do things with righteous thoughts. In addition, Master has given all the mighty virtues to practitioners.
Through solid cultivation over the past few days, I was able to further understand the Fa. I also felt some bad substances had been eliminated. In the past, I often thought the coordinator was not compassionate enough as he talked about things that seemed superficial. Recently, I noticed his words were sincere and compassionate. This reminded me of Master's words in “What is a Dafa Disciple,” “A person’s good side can’t be seen anymore, as it has been separated. What you see will always be the side that has not been cultivated yet. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a compassionate heart, or should look at people in rigid ways.”
Now I have felt the happiness of letting go of human notions and following Master's words to do things. Here I am sharing this with fellow practitioners so that we can improve together.
