[PureInsight.org] My daughter is 8 years old and she is a Dafa disciple.
Today I will talk about cultivation starting from minor things. I realized that I don’t like to do housework. Why cannot I do it well before? It is because I didn’t treat it as a piece of cultivation. I feel that is very troublesome and a waste of time.
Then I talked to my child, “I found a lot of problems with myself. I should do a good job in minor things as well. From now on, let’s start from these together. I will start from doing housework. What about you?” She said, “I can start by doing homework on time.” I said, “That is great. You can also realize that there are some problems with your cultivation?” “Of course I know that I have problems as I don’t finish homework on time and I don’t cultivate and exercise diligently. I cannot tolerate others and I have a bad temper. I do things slowly.” We decided to write down the problems on the wall and solve them one by one with help from each other.
Then, she asked me, “Do you know what problems you have?” I said, “I don’t like to do housework; I always think negatively, and bad things happen.” My daughter said, “It changes with your heart.” I said, “That is right. I found myself not willing to do housework every time, but I have to do housework when there are guests coming. What am I doing housework for?” she said, “For fame and fortune.” She also said a lot of things about what Master said about fame. I didn’t understand and ask her to explain more. She said, “You don’t want to do housework from the heart, just do it on the surface. That’s asking for fame.” I was shocked. I immediately got what that means as asking for fame. I said, “You have a clear understanding of Fa principle.”
We also talked about that when her teacher criticized her, it is not teacher saying that, it is Master who used teacher’s mouth to say to her, because Master could not talk to you directly. She said, “of course, Master won’t say directly. Master said in Zhuan Falun, ‘It is known that a Buddha does not casually open his mouth to talk. Should he open his mouth and talk in our dimension, he could cause an earthquake for humankind-how could that be allowed? Such a loud thundering sound.’” I shook again. I said, “You are really clear about Fa principle.” She said, “Because I have studied Fa, I remember what Master said. You study Fa every day, that is a problem if you don’t remember, and it is a big problem!” I was shocked.
It seems that she is really better than me. Although she is not taken seriously by adults, I should really pay attention to her in the future and regard her as a true fellow practitioner and Dafa disciple.
