Solidly Doing the Three Things Well
By Zhou Ying from Queensland
Greetings, revered Master!
Greetings, fellow practitioners!
I am a new practitioner who obtained the Fa not long ago. I would like to share the following cultivation experience with everyone on this special occasion.
I have always been a loyal reader of the Chinese Epoch Times which I like very much. One day in April 2010, I was attracted by an advertisement in the paper about Dr Hu Naiwen’s Health Seminars. Consequently I went to the seminars on 4th & 5th May. Later, I learned that both Dr Hu and his wife recovered from various illnesses through practicing Falun Gong. I thought since Falun Gong was so powerful, I should learn more about it. At that time Dr Hu also suggested that we go and watch Shen Yun Performing Arts. I called a good friend of mine that day to ask her to go to the show with me. We bought two tickets for the best seats and went to see the show on 2nd June in Brisbane. I cried throughout the entire show, feeling very touched and excited. My heart was engulfed with a feeling of happiness beyond description. When I saw the evil CCP persecuting Falun Gong, I felt angry and indignant. This also made me even more determined to learn the practice of Falun Gong.
On 4th June I went to the Epoch Times office in Brisbane, and with the help of practitioners, I obtained the Fa and started to practice Falun Gong. I also obtained the most precious book, Zhuan Falun. Master installed a Falun in my body on that day. After I got home, I started to study the Fa and do the exercises every day. I also actively participated in group Fa-study. From that time onward, I took up the path of cultivation. Five months later, I was completely free of illnesses and became very healthy. All this further strengthened my determination in cultivation.
Master told genuine practitioners to do the three things well every day. After a period of cultivation, I came to the understanding that when we do the three things, it is also very important to do them in the following order. First of all I would send forth righteous thoughts, then study the Fa and do the exercises. After I have done all of these, I would go out to clarify the facts to save sentient beings. I found that when I did things in this order the truth-clarification was more powerful and everything went smoothly, otherwise I would come across all sorts of difficulties. I also paid great attention to group Fa-study so that I could speed up my improvement to keep up with the Fa-rectification progress and to become mature in the Fa more quickly. When I came to this understanding, I made weekly timetables for doing the three things well. Every day and at all times, I would check myself against the things listed on the table and solidly do the three things well. I would put a tick for the things I had done well, and leave the space blank for the things I had not done so well. It would remind me to make up for the things I had not done well before the end of the day. Only then is it true cultivation.
The timetable is like homework that Master has assigned for me every day. I feel I must do it diligently to be worthy of the title Dafa disciple. Whenever I have not done well, I would feel very uneasy in my heart, feeling that I do not deserve Master’s benevolent salvation. Every evening I would look within with a calm mind. When I found my attachments I would write them down and then I would go and read cultivation experience sharings at Minghui net to see how fellow practitioners focus on Fa-study and cultivation. I would quickly let go of my various attachments and improve my xinxing. I thought as a new practitioner, I must not hold up the advancement of the whole body and must not allow loopholes for the old forces to take advantage of.
Whenever I came across difficulties or experienced set-backs, I would remember Master’s words. “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” Zhuan Falun. Master’s words always encourage me to firmly keep up with cultivation. I will cultivate myself well; assist Master in saving sentient beings and with Master’s guidance return to my true home.
The above is part of my cultivation experience as a new practitioner. Please kindly point out anything improper.
Thank you Master!
Thank you everyone!
