[PureInsight.org] When a thing is too familiar, people usually lose interest, find it boring, and don’t think about it anymore. They think that’s it.
I also have this problem in cultivation. I feel there is nothing new in studying the Fa; I just study it mechanically every day. I lack persistence, and my mind is not in the Fa.
I think it's because I didn't study the Fa seriously, didn't think hard, and didn't use the Fa to check my thoughts or check my words and deeds.
People's hearts always pursue "interesting things," and only when they feel interested can they be motivated. God is merciful and eternal. Cultivators ultimately have to reach the standards of different realms and reach Consummation.
As for "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," I feel nothing new and lack motivation. It's because I don't understand the Fa properly. As far as goodness is concerned, it is the nature of life, the noble character of life, but it is just because it is always talked about in daily life and feels too ordinary.
Only recently did I realize that the good things in traditional culture were intentionally created for human beings by the Creator. They are good creations in the universe. This is something that every life should cherish, but just because it is too familiar, it feels that it is not precious, which corresponds to the saying, "I don't know the blessing when I am in the blessing".
It was also by chance that I felt the connotation of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and after a while, I felt it was very beautiful. I understand that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is eternal and the eternal state that life should have. No matter how long life is, it should always be followed. In life, I feel that the standard to measure everything is Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
In this way, there are all the principles of behavior that guide one's thoughts and actions every day according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, cherishing these seemingly simple words, understanding the infinite connotation in them, and realizing something every day. Compared with traditional culture, it manifests the different connotations of the Fa, which will enrich and broaden our thinking.
Realize it with your heart; there is only one opportunity and seize this opportunity, practice Dafa with your heart, and think about the eternity of life, precious and seemingly simple three noble characters; I think you will feel the true meaning and happiness of life.
