When I Truly Want What is Best for the Other Person

A Dafa Disciple in China

PureInsight | February 10, 2003

[PureInsight.org] When I truly want what is best for the other person, I have successfully broken through my attachment to selfishness and feel myself within the Fa. Only then am I able to feel the profound meaning of the principle of "immense tolerance" that Teacher has taught us.

When I truly want what is the best for the other person, I can only describe my feeling at that moment as immensely great, magnificent, relaxed and peaceful. I feel that I am truly free and at ease. At that moment, everything that I have done in the past that was driven by my stubborn attachment to selfishness becomes laughable. I simply could not help laughing when I thought about my past stubborn selfishness.

When I truly want what is best for the other person, I have released myself from the human dimension. Although my physical body is still within the human realm, my mind has freed itself from all restraints and baggage of human notions and concepts. At that moment, I feel that I have returned to my true self and dissolved into the fundamental nature of the universe, whose principles are boundless and filled with immense compassion. In this state, when I study the Fa, send forth righteous thoughts and clarify the truth, offering salvation to sentient beings, the results are completely different from those times when I stubbornly hold onto human notions and force myself to do these three things.

When I am in such a pure state, I do not have the slightest doubts about the Fa. I feel that each of my cells has melted into the Fa. The profound implications of the Fa have been branded on my mind and carved into my heart, and I feel that I am truly enlightened to the profound, magnificent and all-encompassing meanings of Dafa.

Only when I truly want what is best for the other person have I truly followed Teacher's words and understood the principle of "immense tolerance." When I am in such a state, I feel that all conflicts have been eliminated by forgiveness and compassion. Only then can I break through the delusions created by the evil old forces. I no longer fear them. I no longer have any of the notions planted by them. I can no longer remember any of the low level notions such as fear. At that moment, I feel that I am too pure, sacred and wonderful to be touched by those filthy, dim-witted and degenerated substances. They are not worthy of my thought.

The old forces will stop at nothing to prevent us from advancing in cultivation. They have been trying to make us crawl within the boundaries they had designed. They fear our pure nature and envy our magnificence. Their worst fear is that we might be enlightened to the Fa. Their so-called help to "force us to upgrade to higher levels of cultivation" is nothing but a pretentious act driven by their jealousy. In fact, their so-called help is merely a pretext to attain their secret, dark purpose at the expense of the lives of all beings except their own.

Once I see through the nature of the old forces with all of their evilness, I shall not hesitate to completely eliminate their arrangements. I shall continue to purify my thoughts and be enlightened to the Fa. I shall break through the arrangements of the old forces and fully utilize my mighty power and capacities that are parts of my pure, original nature. I shall tolerate everyone and everything with sincerity, and treat everything with "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance."

When I truly want what is best for the other person, I am truly happy and dissolved into the infiniteness of the Buddha Fa.
