My Cultivation Experiences

A Dafa Disciple in Seattle

PureInsight | January 15, 2014


Greetings Master! Greetings fellow practitioners.

Today, I want to share a couple of experiences that I have been through this year.

1. Reading the Fa in Chinese

For a while, I really liked to read the English version of the Fa. Seeing other practitioners my own age reading English Zhuan Falun made me want to do the same. However, my mom was not so happy about my idea because she said that Master used Chinese in his speech and that we are Chinese people after all. I guess I understood that, but whenever I saw them at Friday Fa study, I always thought that they outshined me because there were not very many people my age who read English Zhuan Falun, so I really wanted to be like them. One day my mom was reading Teaching the Fa at a New York Meeting, and she told me to read it. Master said, “Make sure you have your kids learn Chinese; you can’t lose the characteristics of your yellow race. Since there’s no place for you in the Caucasian paradises, you still need to return to the paradises of the yellow race’s people. What matters the most is if you can’t understand the true meaning of the Fa when you study it”. After reading that paragraph, I talked about it with my mom, and I understood more. I found out really wanting to read English Zhuan Falun was an attachment. I wanted people to see that my English was good, and I wanted people to think that I was very special. Now I know I have this attachment, so I need to rethink and get rid of this attachment. At first I was going to write my sharing article in English because I thought it would be easier and faster, but then I decided to write it in Chinese and actually didn’t have any troubles at all.


2. Getting rid of the attachment of putting makeup on when going to school

This year I am in 6th grade. I realized that a lot people my age put a lot of makeup on before going to school, and most of the teachers admired them. At that time I really wanted to be a part of their group, so one Wednesday morning, I went to the bathroom and locked the door. I took out my mother’s mascara and put it on. When I was having breakfast, my mom kept staring at me. It made me really nervous because I knew that I wasn’t supposed to put mascara on. When I headed for the door, I finally turned to my mom and asked weakly, “Mom don’t get angry, okay?” She nodded. Then I said, “I put some of your mascara on this morning, I know I wasn’t supposed to, but I just couldn’t help it. I’m very sorry.” Surprisingly, my mom smiled and answered me, “It’s okay. I was wondering why you had such long eye lashes this morning!” After school, my mother got online and showed me Teaching the Fa and Answering Questions in Guangzhou, “If you are a student, your natural duty is to study well and be worthy of what your parents, your schools, and your teachers have done for you.” I understood what Master told me, and now I have almost eliminated the attachment.


3. Using time wisely

This year my homework is really hard and always due on the very next day, so I didn’t read Zhuan Falun or do the exercises. There is always a downside to doing homework, and I always forget that my parents become really frustrated with me, while I just try to ignore them and focus on my homework. One day when I went to Fa study at night, I stayed to hear practitioners share some of their thoughts. It was very helpful to me. That night when I went to sleep, I thought about what I did wrong the last few weeks, such as when my parents told me what’s right and what’s wrong, I should have listened. I should pay attention and focus when doing my homework, and most importantly, I cannot forget about reading Zhuan Falun and doing the five exercises no matter how busy I am.


Thank you Master! Thank you fellow practitioners!
