Parramatta 学法点修炼心得 Parramatta Fa study group's sharing (English and Chinese)

尊敬的师父好,各位同修好。 现在向师父及同修汇报一下 Parramatta 点自成立退党点的修炼心得。

我们的退党点是7月份成立的。在这之前我们是在市政厅的广场流动退党,但发现效果不好。因为那里中国人比较少。于是我们决定去唐人店附近去三退。在这之前 和店里的老板讲过,没被同意。但是同修的心性到位了,都同意去那里。我们去了之后商店的老板不但没反对,通过讲真相之后还获得了他们的支持。原来他们在大 陆是都受过中共的迫害。老板的妈妈说我支持你们在这,我反对中共。商店的老板还经常为我们照看大纪元报纸,有时还特意将大纪元报纸拿到他们的店里边,因为 他们知道顾客很喜欢大纪元报纸。

长期坚持小组学法 形成一个整体
我们Parramatta学法点有一个特点,就是老年人比较多,要把我们学法点的学法和正法项目开展好,就要考虑到我们老年人的特点,大家整体配合,同样 可以把许多事情开展的很好。 我们觉的小组学法能够长期稳定的坚持下来,是我们能够形成一个整体的基础。我们这些老年同修是我们整体不可缺少的一部分,他们虽然没有上班,但一点没有比 年纪轻的同修空闲过,悉尼许多大的活动,比如:city的真相长城、中领馆发正念、神韵推票、退党点退党、每天的发报纸都有他们的身影,早晨6点就要去看 报纸,可以说他们也是我们这个炼功点的主力。 我们读法时一般速度都比较慢,一开始时,几个年纪轻同修不太习惯,有时越读越快,但后来大家在交流时谈了这个问题后,大家悟到了这是一个整体,一定要考虑 到老年同修的情况,调整了学法的速度。虽然这是一件很小的事,但也是我们做任何事能考虑整体,能为别人着想的心性提高的反映。

在我们做三件事过程中,也遇到许多邪恶的干扰,特别是针对老年人容易存在担心身体不好的执着,邪恶就制造出各种“病业”关来,比如:我们这里的70多岁的 一位阿姨,从city的Belmore公园对神韵租场地集体发正念回家后,开始出现比较严重“病业”,好几天没有恢复,而且有加重的趋势,同修知道后,就 去她家里和她一起在法上交流:一个是为什么对神韵租场地近距离发正念会出现这种身体不良反映,正说明我们做对了,邪恶才要干扰和迫害我们;另一个就是我们 现在是正法时期,除了新学员和以前长期不出来的学员,在做正法的项目时,会有正常的消业状态,其他同修出现这种情况一定是邪恶干扰,是旧势力的因素在做干 扰我们助师正法,为什么经常在老年人身上出现身体不良反映,就是因为我们老年同修经常会把自己年纪大了,可能身体不如年轻人作为一种理由,这样正好被邪恶 钻孔子,所以我们一定要坚定的发正念清除这些邪恶,决对不承认任何邪恶对我们身体的迫害。这样在法上交流后,再发正念,很快就能恢复。但是由于老年同修这 方面的执着可能比较多一些,有时一下子不能完全去除,所以以后可能又会有另一种身体不良反映出现。最近这位阿姨又出现了眼睛视力模糊,大法书无法看,只能 看录像,周末同修退党结束后,一起来到这位阿姨家,再次从法理上交流,然后发正念。这位阿姨当时非常感动,觉的我们这个学法小组真象一家人一样亲切,她激 动的流了泪。

跟上正法进程 救度更多的众生
在退党活动中,老年同修一开始不讲三退,只是发资料,看到其他年轻的同修和常人讲退党时,他们就在一边默默的发正念,这样退党效果好很多。后来他们悟到, 觉的自己年龄大不讲退党也是自己修炼的障碍,所以在其他同修的鼓励下,他们也开始讲三退,虽然他们走路说话慢,但是他们大家一起劝三退,这样慢慢的也能劝 退一些人。 有一次一个人大声吵闹反对我们三退并说一些不好的话。这时同修马上形成一个整体,有的发正念,有的讲真相,清除他背后的邪恶因素,就看到越说越苍白无力, 最后就看到他全身无力地走了。这事充分的体现了正念的威力,以及整体的作用。 在劝三退时,有的人第一次没退,大家没有灰心,第二次没退也没有灰心,第三次在见面时终于劝退了。大家非常的高兴。为一个生命的得救而高兴。 听了瑞士同修的交流后,我们有很大的启发。我们学会顺着常人的执着讲真相效果非常好。例如有的人一开始很反对我们,不肯接真相资料,由于我们改变了说话的 方式,拉近了距离后他们也接了真相资料,这样为今后的三退打下了基础。另一位,一听说是老乡,感到很亲切,一路走,一路讲真相破他的壳,一路都不肯退,当 走到饭馆时,同修说,我们的缘分就要到这了,你退不退呢,突然他蹦出几个字来,我退,我退,我退。我们悟道了师父讲的一个法理:“真正慈悲的力量能解体一 切不正的因素,你跟他讲的时候就是能量在往外发放,就会解体那些邪恶的东西,另外空间里的邪恶就不敢再靠近与控制人。那么这个时候对人讲道理他就会听了, 你就会破除他被中共邪党灌输的那些个谎言,就会把他的心结打开。“(曼哈顿讲法) 还有很多感人的事例,不一一列举。

最近我们在做配合西区的整体协调的工作,一个就是争取更多同修上网,建立联系和一起学法交流的网络,另一个将开辟更多退党点,主要的华人居住区不留下空白 点。就象我们炼周天一样,使我们百脉加宽,“最后使上万条脉连成一片,达到一种无脉无穴的境地,整个身体连成一片”(《转法轮》第八讲)。如果我们都这样 修好自己,我们悉尼的整体一定会越来越好。 虽然我们还有很多的执着如:争斗心,怕心,但是我们会在修炼中最终去掉它。我们知道悉尼的整体配合现在还有些不如意的地方,但我们悟到,大家都不等不靠, 不管有什么干扰出现,不管听到多少负面消息,大家就修好自己,从我做起,从当地做起。我们一定加强学法,学好法,做好三件事,救度更多的众生。完成我们的 史前大愿。

最后让我们以师父的洪吟共勉:“ 快讲 大法徒讲真相 口中利剑齐放 揭穿烂鬼谎言 抓紧救度快讲 谢谢师父,谢谢各位同修。

Parramatta Fa study group's sharing

Greetings respected Master, greetings practitioners,

I will now report to practitioners and Master about the Parramatta practice site setting up a Quitting CCP Centre, and our cultivation experiences. We set up our Tuidang site in July. Before this time we were floating around the public square near City Hall doing tuidang, but found that the efficacy was not good. There weren’t very many Chinese people there. So, we decided to go to Chinatown to promote the three withdrawals. Before that, we spoke to some of the managers of shops there, and they didn’t agree. But practitioners’ xinxing was in the right place, and they agreed to go there. After we went there, the bosses of the stores not only not opposed it, but through clarifying the truth, we gained their support. Originally they’re from mainland China, and had been persecuted by the CCP. One manager’s mother said “I support you being here. I’m opposed to the CCP.” Also, the store bosses often looked after the Epoch Times newspaper for us, and sometimes especially went to grab some copies of the paper to put them in their stores, because they know their customers really like The Epoch Times.

Persisting in small group Fa study, forming one body

Our Parramatta Fa study group has a characteristic, it’s that there are relatively more older people, so if we want to open up our Fa study and validating the Fa projects more, we need to think of the characteristics of these older practitioners. When everybody cooperates well, a lot of things can be manifested very well.

We believe that a small group Fa study being able to stabilise and persist long term, is the foundation of us forming one body. The portion of older practitioners in our group is something that we couldn’t do without. Even though they don’t go to work, like younger practitioners they don’t waste any of their spare time. In Sydney there are many big activities, like the city great wall of truth, sending righteous thoughts outside the embassy, selling tickets for Shen Yun, encouraging Chinese to renounce the CCP, every day handing out newspapers—all these things are part of what they do. They wake up at 6am to go hand out the paper; you could say that these guys are the main force of our practice site.

Our regular Fa study speed is relatively slow, so at the start a few of the younger practitioners aren’t too accustomed to it; so sometimes, the more we reader, the faster we read. But after we shared about this issue, everyone thought about it from the perspective of one body, and that the  situation of the older practitioners must be given consideration—so we adjusted our Fa study speed. Even though this is a really small thing, whenever we do something we should think of the whole body. Being able to consider things from other people’s perspective is a reflection of elevating xinxing.

In the process of d oing three things we’ve also encountered a lot of evil interference. In particular, for older people it’s easy to get attachments to worries about health. The evil just creates all kinds of “sickness karma.” An example is, we have here a 70 year old aunty who, after leaving the Belmore park in the city after sending righteous thoughts together for Shen Yun, started getting a serious kind of “sickness karma.” She didn’t recover for quite a few days, and it had a trend of getting more serious. After fellow practitioners knew about it, they went to her house and studied the Fa together and shared. One thing they shared about was, why after leaving from sending righteous thoughts from Shen Yun would this kind of bad body state manifest—and is it because we did things really correctly, and that’s why the evil would try to interfere and persecute us. Another thing was that we are in the Fa rectification period, and apart from new practitioners and those who haven’t come out in a long time, practitioners doing Fa rectification projects may at that time have a regular state of eliminating karma. Other practitioners manifesting this kind of state is definitely evil interference, it’s the old forces factors interfereing with our assisting Master to rectify the Fa. And why does this kind of thing manifest in the bodies of older practitioners? It’s exactly because us older practitioners often see our age as some big thing, making a reason that maybe our bodies aren’t like those of younger people—this is exactly letting the evil take advantage of a loophole. So we have to firmly send righteous thoughts, clear our the evil, and definitely not acknowledge any evil persecuting our body. In this way, after sharing on the Fa, sending righteous thoughts again, the practitioner quickly recovered. But because older practitioners have this sort of attachment a bit more, sometimes you cannot completely get rid of it in one go, so maybe later there will be another kind of bad bodily state that comes out. So recently this aunty got some issue with her eyes not seeing clearly, was unable to read Dafa books, and could only watch the videos. After the weekend tuidang event was over we all went to this aunty’s house, shared from the Fa again, and then sent righteous thoughts. This aunty was very moved at the time. She felt like our small Fa study group was really as close as a family, and she was moved to tears.

Catching up with the progress of Fa-rectification, saving more sentient beings

During tuidang activities, at the start older practitioners didn’t talk about the three withdrawals, they old handed out information. When they say younger practitioners and ordinary people talking about tuidang, they just quietly sent righteous thoughts on the side, and in this way there were a lot of people renouncing the CCP. Later they enlightened that not clarifying the truth about tuidang because of their age was an impediment to cultivation, so with the encouragement of other practitioners they also started to talk about the three withdrawals. Though they spoke slowly, they could still promote the three withdrawals, and could also encourage some people to quit.

One time someone made a big scene loudly rejecting our three withdrawals, also saying some negative words. Practitioners formed one body then, some sending righteous thoughts, some clarifying the truth, clearing out the evil factors behind that person, and saw that the more this person spoke, the more ineffectual they felt their words were, and finally the person left, looking like they didn’t have any energy in their body. This incident showed the power of righteous thoughts, and the effect of one body.

When promoting the three withdrawals some people don’t renounce the CCP the first time, and nobody loses heart. The second time they don’t renounce, also no one loses heart. The third time this person comes, finally they make the three withdrawals. Everyone is really happy. Happy for the life that obtained salvation.

After listening to the sharing from a practitioner from Switzerland, we enlightened to many things. We learnt that clarifying the truth according to ordinary peoples’ attachments was extremely effective. For example, some people started out against us, not accepting truth-clarification material. Because we changed the manner in which we spoke, after a wile they started to accept the truth-clarification material, so in this way we established a foundation for doing the three withdrawals going forward. Another person, upon hearing that a practitioner was from her own hometown, felt really close to this practitioner, and as they walk and spoke, her shell was broken by the truth. The whole walk together she didn’t agree to renounce the CCP, but as they walked to a restaurant the practitioner said “Our predestined relationship arrives here, are you going to renounce the CCP or not?” And all of a sudden this person said the words, “I renounce, I renounce, I renounce.” This is when we enlightened to a piece of Fa that Master said: “The power of true compassion can dissolve all deviant factors, and when you talk with a person you will be emitting energy outwardly that dissolves evil things, and the evil in other dimensions will not dare to approach or control that person anymore. When you then reason with that person, he will listen, and you will be able to purge the lies infused into him by the wicked CCP, thus removing the block in his mind.” (Fa Teaching Given in Manhattan)

There are also many other moving things, I can’t give one example after another.

Recently we have been organized the West district’s cooperation and work, and one issue is to improving on how to get more practitioners online, so to improving our keeping in contacts and Fa study in our group … another is opening more Quit CCP centres, not leaving any area where there are Chinese people empty. It’s just like when we practice the Heavenly Circuit, it opens all our hundreds of energy channels “In the end, thousands of energy channels will join together and turn one’s body into one without any energy channels or acupuncture points; they will join together to make one whole body.” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture Eight). If we all cultivate ourselves well, the Sydney one body will definitely get better and better.

Even though we still have many attachments, like competitiveness, fear, we willeventually get rid of them through cultivation. We know that cooperation of the whole body in Sydney has some not-ideal aspects, but we’ve enlightened that no one should wait or be reliant, it doesn’t matter what interference appears, it doesn’t matter what kind of negative news you hear, everyone just has to cultivate themselves well, start from myself, start from right here. We’ll definitely increase Fa study, study the Fa well, do the three things well, and save more and more sentient beings. We will fulfill our prehistoric vows.

Finally, let us be mutually encouraged by Master’s Hong Yin:

Hurry Up and Speak
Dafa disciples, speak the truth,
From your mouths, sharp swords all at once shoot forth.
Piercing through the lies of rotten ghosts,
Seize the moment to rescue and save—hurry up and speak
