Sharing About Shen Yun Promotion: Keeping an Empty and Clear Mind Is Best

A Dafa Disciple in Boston

[] Last week a notice was sent that there were about 1,000 Shen Yun posters that needed to be put up. When the posters arrived a fellow practitioner told me: “Let’s go and put them up. Shen Yun is going to begin soon and there are so many posters and there are many big ones.” I reassured the practitioner: “It’s OK.” We invited two other practitioners to join us and set out the next day. We divided into three groups and went to each shop one by one. Many people showed interest during the process. Many of them had not heard much about Shen Yun and some had never heard about it, but almost every shop allowed us to put up the posters, sometimes more than one, regardless of the size. I still remember one large hamburger shop where the boss hesitated for a second when hearing the Shen Yun introduction and then nodded with satisfaction—we put up four big posters there.

We then went to a famous pizza shop. The boss was quite happy with the introduction and pointed to a glass door saying: “Paste the posters there.” After putting it up I thought: “How beautiful!” No other thoughts were in my mind at that time. I was just thinking of saving people and clarifying the truth everywhere rather than having to put up all the posters. We put up around 100 posters a day for three consecutive days. I remember Master said in "Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa": “Everything has been prepared, and all that’s missing is for you to carry it out.” My personal understanding is that everything we do has already been arranged, the only question is how we should do it? Should we carry notions and experience formed in human society when doing things or should we think of nothing except for saving sentient beings and truly doing things according to Master’s requirements? Actually it’s only one thought, a God’s thought, not a human thought. It is in fact about putting down notions formed in human society and it is without any human thoughts.

During the process there were cases were the shop owner was relatively cold, but the customers were very interested. One example I remember was a pharmacy. The owner was very cold, saying that they were not interested, but suddenly a customer came in and his eyes lit up when seeing the Shen Yun poster and asked us what it was about. We told him and he showed a lot of interest immediately saying he would go to see it. Another example was dollar store where people hugged each of us when they saw the posters. We were surprised at the time, and then I realized that every being is here based on predestined ties, and their side that is aware knows Shen Yun is their hope of being saved.

I remember a practitioner say during a group sharing: “How many people have thought about a full house in our district’s Shen Yun Performance?” In fact the answer has already been given by Master. Master has already told us in "Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa": “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.”

Every Shen Yun seat corresponds to a sentient being! Each performance should always have a full house! The precondition is how to fulfill what Master wants and how to put down our notions.

Master has also said: “If you, as my student, truly want to “help Master rectify the Fa,” then you should concern yourself only with how to best fulfill what Master wants. This alone is what you should be doing, yet you want instead for Master to help you? How could you use Dafa during the Fa-rectification to instead help fulfill your human ideas?” ("What Does it Mean to 'Help Master Rectify the Fa'”).

Now it is the final period. No matter what kind of bad thoughts enter your mind, just put everything down, use righteous thoughts, the thoughts of a God, to treat Shen Yun! Treasure this period of time!

This is my personal understanding. Please kindly correct out any improper points.
