Recently I had some conflicts with other coordinators and I didnft feel very comfortable. I felt that I tried to help others, help fill the loopholes for others, felt I had been working hard and took many workloads that I should not take. Why were other practitioners still not happy and complained about me? I felt quite indignant. Later I read a sharing article on Minghui by one mainland Chinese practitioner and enlightened to something. This female practitioner was a leader in her workplace and busy with work. In addition, she needed to balance the family and look after her parents in law and felt quite tired. However her in-laws didnft appreciate her at all and still complained that she didnft treat them well. She then felt quite unbalanced in her heart and later, after looking inward, she realized that her nice treatment of her in-laws and other people have not achieved genuine selfless consideration for others and still concealed some attachment of pursuit: hoping others will thank her, praise her, and say good words about her. So she realised that she just acted like a good everyday person, not with the real compassion of a cultivator.

I also reflected on myself and realised that these conflicts I had with other coordinators also have such similar reasons. I still have not achieved a selfless mind that purely wants to give goodness for others. Even when I seem to help others, there are still hidden pursuits and selfish attachments behind it and at least with the hope to get appreciation, understanding and praise from others. If I didnft have such pursuit, then why would I care about practitionersf attitude and reaction and feel uncomfortable and upset? Also why did my seemingly good intention and efforts made other practitioners unhappy? There must be some reasons from myself.

gQuestion: Master said that if deep inside a cultivator still stubbornly holds on to his most fundamental interests, his cultivation is not genuine.h

 

gTeacher: Let me tell you that cultivation is precisely about cultivating onefs mind—thatfs true cultivation.hc  gSo in other words, cultivation must genuinely change a person inside. If you want to reach high realms, if you want to reach the realm of a god, you must reach a godfs realm of mind. If only your surface is changed while your nature remains the same, itfs not genuine. At a certain time or at a critical moment, [the attachment] will still show up. So if a personfs mind isnft changed, that is just covering things up with a false appearance. Changes must occur starting with your nature. Only that counts as genuinely changing yourself. In other words, you have to be responsible to yourself in cultivation, and you have to genuinely change yourself and let go of the bad things that you are attached to deep inside—only that is true letting go. If you seem to do everything right on the surface but deep inside you still guard and hold on to the things that you donft want to let go of, thatfs absolutely unacceptable. As you know, a Buddha or a God can give up his life for living beings and for the interest of the universe; they can give up anything, and even remain unmoved by it. So if you were taken up to their position, could you be like that?h

After reading this Fa lecture, I felt very touched. When I feel I try to help others or take a lot of work, donft I still focus on my ego? When I think highly of my method or views and push to others, will other practitioners be able to accept and benefit? Did I think from other practitionersf perspective to think what is the best for others and what do they truly need? A good deed from the surface can show different realms and results based on selfish or altruistic starting point. I understood that cultivation is not about right and wrong on the surface or showing to others, but it is the genuine change and uplift in our own minds. Otherwise, no matter how many things I may do, I just do a good deed in everyday peoplefs level, deceive myself but have not genuinely cultivated and improved.

Master said in gTeaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conferenceh, gSelfishness is a fundamental attribute of the cosmos of the past. Because of that attribute, formation-stasis-degeneration-destruction and birth-aging- sickness-death are inevitable. In the future the Fa will be all-harmonizing, perfect, and selfless. The change in that fundamental attribute of the cosmos leads to fundamental changes in the cosmos's progression and beings' characteristics. The fundamental attribute of the cosmos has determined the fundamental state that the cosmos is inh.

 

I enlightened that when I feel unhappy or hurt by what practitioners do or say, that means my selfish ego is moved. What I canft let go is my standard, my loss and gain, my feelingc Such thoughts are still based on the selfish basis in the old cosmos and are not pure enough even when I do Dafa work. What Dafa needs today is to help us achieve a selfless and altruistic being. Only when I truly let go my ego and change my selfish nature from the past, it can help my essential life and layers upon layers of particles make fundamental change and could enter into the new cosmos as a harmonized immortal being with righteous enlightenment.

Recently when I heard a joke from other practitioners gthe future cosmos of Lucy may only have coordinatorsh, my heart was startled. Though I wonft attach to how many sentient beings may be in my future cosmos, or have no sentient being but only coordinators, such a joke makes me reflect on myself and check if I am stuck into a state of an everyday leader, rather than a solid cultivator?

I remember when I was in Canada, I paid a lot of attention to my solid cultivation: getting up early and do exercises outdoor to Hongfa, every day; then going to school and work; studying the Fa, calling mainland China or do other Dafa work at night. Such time arrangement continued almost every day. I also seldom stayed at home on Saturday and Sunday and I would either go to Hongfa activities, to truth clarification sites, Chinatown or other tourist sites. Many other Toronto practitioners also continued such a busy daily schedule for years, and even those FXH members, coordinators and media team practitioners also take time every week to go to tourist site, China town, or Consulate to clarify truth and save people. Now I become a coordinator myself and seem to find excuses for me to stay at home on the weekend to send email, call practitioners or have meetings. It seems I am also busy with Dafa work but sometimes also feel my cultivation is not as solid as the past. I hoped to join the truth clarifying activities but worried about other practitionersf criticism of me such asga general takes on soliderfs workh.

Recently I read one sharing article on Minghui by a coordinator in China and felt quite enlightened by it. In order to coordinate well, this practitioner also needs to spend a lot of time to share with other practitioners, communicate and arrange Dafa work. Even so, she never relaxes on her own truth clarification. Every time when she goes out to visit practitioners and do housework, she will take every opportunity to clarify truth to people she met on street and help them quit CCP. Every time when she goes out, she always helps some people quit CCP, so she balances well between coordination and saving people.

I decided to arrange at least one day each week to clarify truth face to face. I have not broken through well in helping people quit CCP. I seem too shy to speak to strangers on the street and feel even more nervous to stop the passing by Chinese people to help them quit CCP. When I talk to them, I donft feel enough power in my talk and am not able to successfully help people quit the CCP very often. I admire those practitioners who can cheerfully talk to Chinese people and easily help them quit CCP. A few weeks ago, I went with other practitioners to Chinatown to help quit CCP. Another two practitioners can follow Chinese people to clarify truth and easily help dozens of people quit CCP in a couple of hours. I went back with empty hands. But the failure this time didnft lead me to give up. The following week there was eWall of Truthf in Auburn and I told myself I had to attend. No matter I can help people quit CCP or not, at least I should try to talk. The energy field on that day was righteous and strong and many people signed the petition. I also ran into a few pre-destined people who agreed to quit CCP. After the event when I went back home and studied Fa at night, I experienced a joyful and uplifting righteous feeling that I have not had for a long time. I also could keep enlightening to more and higher Fa principles behind Fa lecture. I experienced again the joy when onefs life uplifts in solid cultivation.

gClimbing Mount Tai

 I climb the steep steps, stretching miles ahead,

 Winding upward and steep, this road,

 even to set off is hard;

 Glancing back, etis just like cultivating Righteous Fa,

 Pausing half way makes salvation hard.

So steel the will, and lift thy leaden leg,

 Endure the pain, diligent, and cast off attachments;

 Dafa disciples, the tens of millions—

 A place still higher awaits you at Consummation.h
