[PureInsight.org] I obtained Fa 20 years ago and truly appreciated every moment of Master’s compassion. In Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s) from Essentials for Further Advancement II, Master said, “The truth is, I treasure you more than you treasure yourselves!” Of Master’s immeasurable compassion, I could only feel a little bit. It was the last step for cultivation now, but I just understood how to cultivate myself.
Once, I complained about annoying things such as relatives having borrowed money without returning it and my husband not doing much housework to a fellow practitioner. The fellow practitioner listened quietly and exchanged with me based on the Fa, “The principles here are reversed. No money returned from relatives was because you owed them, your husband’s performance was because of your attachment.” Master tried to expose my attachments using it. I should look inward to purify myself. Even if I complained a little, it meant I looked outside. Thanks, fellow practitioners!
After examining my cultivation seriously, I realized I didn’t have solid cultivation before. Whenever there was contradiction, I couldn’t remember I was a practitioner. I did look inward but found all others’ attachments. Then I felt unfairly done by and unhappy.
I was touched again in last year's San Francisco Fa conference after listening to the fellow practitioners’ exchange. In Realms of Essentials for Further Advancement, Master said, “A wicked person is born of jealousy. Out of selfishness and anger he complains about unfairness towards himself.” I suddenly woke up. My complaints were the performance of the evil!
Now I knew a little bit on how to cultivate myself with every thought. I have been very selfish and always wanted my husband to do more housework. However, he had to squeeze time to study Fa and clarify the truth because of daily work. He only slept very few hours. Looking inward broadened my mind and I didn’t have any complaints but understanding, tolerance and cherishing! It was amazing!
I understood looking inward was to find my own attachments. The attachment was a real material composed by human idea and karma. I shouldn’t have any complaints because it not only hurt others but myself. The Fa of the universe was justice: it was either I owed them or I had attachment. However, all of them were good opportunities to improve quickly.
Thanks, Master! Thanks, fellow practitioners!
