Time Waits for No One

A Dafa Disciple in China

PureInsight | December 1, 2015

[PureInsight.org] I had planned to take a flight back home from my business trip in another city to save time. Since there was only one flight per day with very early departure time, I had to stay in a hotel close to the airport prior to the departure day. It was such a pity that I had to miss sending forth righteous thoughts twice the next morning because I had to go to the airport early.

Before going to the airport, I received a departure delay message from the airline because the previous flight had not arrived. Thus I did not pay attention to the flight information, nor did I go through the security check. Instead, I just waited in the airport lobby because I thought it was too early. Then I found the security line had become extremely long. It was already past the boarding time after my security check, and no one was at the gate when I arrived there. At that moment, I realized I had missed the plane. Even though the flight had not departed, I could not board. I was also told that there was no way to refund or change the ticket. Even worse, since there was only one flight per day, I could not go home that day. All my previous preparations to catch the flight turned out to be meaningless.

Tears almost came out as I paced around inside the airport helplessly. I tried to calm down and remember that Master said nothing is a coincidence for practitioners. I looked inward and suddenly woke up: the superficial reason for missing the flight was an error in the information; the true reason was that I had no sense of urgency because I always thought there was enough time and that the flight would not leave. Wasn’t this how I viewed cultivation? I did the three things laxly without strict requirement. If one thing could not be done in a given day, I would postpone it to the next day or later because of my laxity and laziness. If I could not practice in the early morning, I would think to myself that I could finish it in the evening or the next day. It was a terrible letdown compared with Master’s requirement of “diligent cultivation”. The key point was that I had no sense of urgency and felt that I was good when I noticed the attachment to time and the end of the Fa-rectification. However, the reason that I had no attachment to time was that I always felt there was enough time, so I did not cultivate diligently.

Thus, Master hinted to me in this way so that I could overcome my laziness and hurry in cultivation. Understanding Master's care and thought, my tears came out shamefully. This time, I felt so bad because I could not catch my flight back home. If I miss the time to go home when the Fa rectifies the human realm because I did not cultivate well, then even crying would be useless. Without consummation, everything a practitioner did would be in vain. The excruciating despair would be at least a million times worse than missing a flight. I thus woke up after realized this.

Meanwhile, Master also exposed another attachment to me: I am easily interfered by external factors, and I do not have a strong main consciousness. I would rather trust a text message instead of the flight information at the airport even though I was already there. It also told me to believe in Dafa and not be easily perturbed by external fluctuations. Looking inward, I found that even though I passed the government inquiry under Master’s protection regarding the lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, I did not truly put it to heart. Some absurd ideas still emerged from time to time. Wasn’t it still evil interference? It also reflected that I do not firmly believe in Master and in the Fa from the bottom of my heart.

After realizing these serious problems, I realized I could only cultivate diligently and be worthy of Master’s awaken through more Fa study. Time waits for no one, and Master is really anxious for us and for all beings. We should not be lazy and instead be responsible to ourselves. This is truly our last chance!

Above are some of my understandings. Please point out anything inappropriate!
