[PureInsight.org] Several years ago, I had already started walking the streets and delivering Shen Yun DVDs face to face. During this process, I overcame fear and gradually cultivated into a godly state. When I first started delivering Shen Yun DVDs face to face, I would get scared upon meeting someone. My heart would beat wildly, as if I was doing something wrong. Hence, I wasn’t able to give out many DVDs in a day. During this time, Master’s new articles were being published, and these encouraged me a lot. I improved my xinxing, and saw the fearful state I harbored when giving out DVDs face to face, transform into the state desired by gods.
Master said in Fa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conference: “Some students proclaim that they will just bear it, and bear it some more. Enough with the “bearing” already! However hard the situation may be, you still must do the three things well. Saving sentient beings—that is a Dafa disciple’s responsibility! A Dafa disciple’s Consummation is absolutely not just individual Consummation. Rather, it must be that in saving sentient beings you will have led countless beings to Consummation. That holds true for every one of you! Then if that’s the case, think about it, during this historic period shouldn’t we be playing the lead role?” By acting according to Master’s Fa, I realized: As a Fa Rectification Period Dafa Disciple, I am playing the lead role. I am the sole hope for sentient beings awaiting salvation. What do I have to be afraid of? I will use the Fa and righteous thoughts to eradicate all fearful substances. As a result, I really overcame fear, and what replaced it was a godly state.
Once I delivered Shen Yun DVDs to a chauffeur who peddled fruits from the countryside. I said, “Little brother: what this DVD contains is divinely inspired culture, performed by the world’s number one show. I’m giving it to you.” After receiving the DVD he said, “Are you not afraid of getting caught?” If it was the old me, after hearing this, my heart would jump out my chest. But now, not only is my heart steady, my psyche is very relaxed and steady. I very naturally replied to him, “Little brother, I am not afraid of being caught. I haven’t even thought about this. What’s important is that I have to tell you the truth: heaven will eliminate the CCP. This is a heavenly mandate. Only by doing the three withdrawals (withdrawing from CCP party organizations) can you assure yourself safety. This is a serious matter that concerns the core of your life. The CCP’s movements have murdered over 80 million innocent civilians of all ranks, and now they are persecuting Falun Gong, even going as far as making profits from live organ harvesting. This has infuriated men and gods alike; hence the CCP’s elimination is mandated by heaven.” After hearing this, this chauffeur then said to me, “Right, I will immediately withdraw from the CCP Organization that I joined before. It’s not worth it if it’s going to die. I will choose a wonderful future for myself.” I said, “You have been saved!” He happily replied, “Thank you.” In this way I have delivered many Shen Yun DVDs face to face till now.
Delivering Shen Yun DVDs and Cultivating a God’s Tolerance
Since last year, fellow practitioner B and I started working together to burn Shen Yun DVDs and print DVD labels. When I handed out the DVDs which I made for sentient beings, I was so glad.
This year fellow practitioner A, who made Shen Yun DVDs, told me, “Do not burn DVDs. You just work on handing them out.” So we made 80% of our DVD paper cases. The DVD cases I made this year were very beautiful DVD cases. Fellow practitioner A made lots of DVDs but she seldom distributed them. Without communicating with me, she gave 1,000 DVDs to my local team. Among them, 800 DVDs used the paper bag. And that’s not all; in fact she also went out of her way to say, “The DVDs are requested by me for delivery to the North; the DVDs which are for the South are requested by me too.” After hearing this, my attachment of blame, looking down on others and unfairness all emerged. In my heart I thought, how could you lie to others?
At this time I unconditionally looked inward and continuously corrected my various human attachments. I then again walked steadily on the Fa rectification path as arranged by Master, continuously delivering my self-made Shen Yun DVDs.
One day, fellow practitioner A came to my house. I wanted to question fellow practitioner A on the matter as it stood and clear some things up. After these thoughts came out, suddenly Master’s Fa, Don’t Argue in Hong Yin (III), appeared in my head, halting my words at the tip of my tongue:
Don’t argue when people argue with you
Cultivation is looking within for the cause
Wanting to explain just feeds the attachment
Breadth of mind, unattached, brings true insight
I thought in my head that we were cultivators, and that based on the way the situation manifested itself, it was all her fault; I was one hundred percent correct. But Master has said before in Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference, “You should know, and I have been saying all along, that when you, as Dafa disciples, look at something, you have to make sure to view it in reverse since the Three Realms are inverted, and you have to conduct yourselves in a positive, correct manner. What ordinary people regard as not good is good for cultivators--beings who wish to leave this place. If your thinking is the same as ordinary people, then you will forever be an ordinary person and never be able to leave here. So, when you meet with ordeals, it is the perfect opportunity for you to improve.”
After measuring myself with the Fa and looking inward, I found many human attachments toward fellow practitioner A that I had to eliminate. After eliminating these attachments with righteous thoughts, I at once felt relaxed and felt that I had learned tolerance. I even saw many positive traits of fellow practitioner A.
Through these experiences I became enlightened to: for a practitioner, it’s not about how well you yourself have cultivated. If you are not cooperating within the whole body by exercising tolerance toward fellow practitioners, the old forces will take advantage of this loophole and create a barrier. If we all can cultivate a great enlightened being’s tolerance, we will create a resolute and unbreakable whole body. This is what the evil is most scared of, and this is also what Master wants.
