Cultivating and upgrading myself while coordinating Shen Yun promotion 在??神?推?中修?与提升自己

AM12: E Pfister ˉ Sydney

Greetings, revered Master!
Greetings, fellow practitioners!
尊敬的?父好!
同修?好!
For the past 15 years, I have dedicated myself to validate the Fa and clarifying the truth; I closely follow the progress of Fa rectification. Throughout these years, I have disciplined myself to study the Fa and practice the exercises, and these have become my daily morning routine. I have diligently done the three things. In the process of validating the Fa and clarifying the truth, a lot of my attachments were exposed.
在?去15年中,我一直在?极的??法和?真相,?跟正法进程。?些年?,我?格要求自己?法、?功,?已成?我每天早上的必修之?。我一直在努力做好三件事,在??法和?清真相的?程中,我的?多?著被暴露了出?。


As I have become capable in doing more work, I found that different human attachments started to surface. Most noticeably were my attachments to doing things, competition and fame. I have also become very opinionated.  I have lots of regrets, hardships and tribulation which are mainly due to not knowing how to look into the root of my attachments.
??我做事能力的增?,我??各种人的?著?始浮?出?。最?明?的是?著于做事,有?斗心和求名的想法,也?得非常固?己?。有?多后悔、困?和魔?主要都是因?不知道如何挖掉?著的根而造成的。


In Zhuan Falun Master said: “To tell you the truth, the entire cultivation process for a practitioner is one of constantly giving up human attachments.”
在《?法?》中?父?∶“告?你一?真理∶整?人的修??程就是不?的去人的?著心的?程。”


Master said: “Has it occurred to you that everything in your daily life is part of cultivation? Your every word and action, and everything you do—all of it is part of your cultivation. Do you realize that? (Fa Teaching on World Falun Dafa Day)
?父?∶“你想?你所有生活的一切都在修??中??你的一言一行,你所做的那一切,你都是在修?中,你知道??”(《世界法?大法日?法,二零一四年??法??法》)


1.Shen Yun provides me with a fast path in of cultivation.
一、神??我提供了最快的修?道路
In the trade show/events team, our objective is to promote Shen Yun to the main stream and to create brand awareness. All these events provide us great opportunity to introduce Shen Yun by talking face to face to the right target audiences. We propose business opportunities to organizations in the way of partnership, cross promotion, using our own media resources at no cost to the Shen Yun marketing budget. This approach gives us the chance to contact CEOs and management at the decision making level, to introduce Shen Yun and Shen Yun media partners and to discuss business proposals with them. Along the way, we have come across many predestined people, who have been arranged by Master for us to save. I usually follow up with phone calls after emailing proposal letters to introduce myself and our media. At one time I called the founder of a charity organization of a black tie gala dinner. She said to me: “I have looked at the Shen Yun website you sent me; The music and the dance are very soothing. They put me instantly into a meditative state, usually you have to be a donor or sponsor before we can promote your brand at the event, but I will make an exception for you. We have confirmed that 480 guests will attend the gala dinner. Can you give me 480 flyers to hand out to the guests on the night?” I asked her how she had sold so many tickets to her event. She said it was mainly support from corporations. Another organizer who I contacted said: “I am sorry our event is a serious business award night, and is packed with programs. It is a bit late to add yours, but I am on the board of several other organizations. The show sounds amazing, send me something about the show, I will promote Shen Yun on my social page and other organizations that I am with.
在商?展/活???中,我?的目?是向主流社?推?神?,打?神?品牌。所有的商?活?都?我?面?面向目?听?介?神?提供了巨大的机?。我?向各???提出了多种商?合作,如成?商?伙伴、交叉推?,用我?自己的媒体?源免?做神?市???。?种方法?我?提供了与各??第一??人和?策?的管理人?接触的机?,向他?介?神?、介?神?的媒体伙伴并和他?一起??商?提案,??我?遇到了?多?父安排我?救度的有?人。我通常是在?出?子?件介?我自己和我?的媒体后,接?打??。有一次我打???了一???黑??晚宴的慈善??的??人,她?我?∶“我已?看了你??我的神?网站,那音?和舞蹈非常?慰人心,立刻?我进入了安?宁?的??,通常你必?是捐?者或?助者,我?才能在活?中推?你?的品牌,但是?你例外,我?已?确?,有480名客人?出席晚宴,你能?我480???分???晚?的客人??”我?她是怎厶?出的?厶多票,她?他?主要是得到大公司的支持。我?系的另一???者?∶“?不起,我?的活?已?排?了,再?你?的?容加进去有?晚了,但是我是其它几???的董事成?,(神?)演出听起?非常吸引人,?我??介?演出的?西,我?在我的社交网?上以及向我加入的其它??推?神?。


It is not difficult to promote Shen Yun to the management of big organizations. It is a matter of fine tuning the approach, and making them feel we are there to help them to connect their business with the Chinese community through The Epoch Times, the biggest Chinese media in Sydney. Master has paved the way; we have the best product – Shen Yun. All we need to do is to find the predestined people and introduce Shen Yun to them. Behind each person we meet is a huge networking group.
向大??的管理?推?神?并不?,只不?是要方法得?,?他?感受到我?是通?悉尼最大的中文媒体《大?元》?助他?与?人社?建立商??系。?父已??好了路,我?已?有了最好的?品——神?,我?所需做的就是找到有?人并向他?介?神?。在我?所遇到的每?人背后都有巨大的人?。


This year, with 20,000 tickets, is important for every practitioner to find an area of promotion where his/her skill can best apply. With the small promotion budget, I believe that when each of us elevates our cultivation state and cooperates well. And with the wisdom bestowed by Dafa and with Master’s help, I believe that nothing is impossible.
今年要?出2丌?票,每?同修找到最能施展自己技能的推票?域是很重要的。?管推??算小,但是我相信,?我?每一?人都提升自己的修???,配合??,?用大法?与的智慧及?父的?助,??有什厶是不可能的。


2. Negate any negative thought toward fellow practitioners
二、否定?同修的?面想法
I realize every tribulation is for me to elevate my xinxing. When disappointment arises, I remind myself to keep my thought on the Fa and to eliminate any thought towards fellow practitioners that is not on the Fa. I understand I can’t use my standard to judge other team members, since I don’t have to go out to work like most of my team members. I can work full time in promoting Shen Yun, so naturally I can take on much more work load than others. It is a challenge to maintain a constant good cultivation state under the pressure of deadlines and xinxing tests. I don’t always manage and balance it well.  It is only after I have gone through  ordeals that I realize where I felt short. With this new understanding, everything becomes easier. It is not as daunting to be a coordinator as I used to think.
我??到每一?魔?都是?我提高心性的,?感到失望?,我就提醒自己?同修保持正念,去掉任何不符合法的念?。我知道我不能用我的?准?衡量其他??,因?我不象他?那?要上班,我能全?推?神?,自然我就能承?比他?更多的工作。在限期?力和心性考?下?期保持良好的修???是不容易的,我并不?是能?平衡好,只有在??魔?之后,我才意?到自己的不足。明白?一?,任何事都?得?松了,做??人并不象我之前想的那厶可怕。


At the beginning of our promotions, there was a communication problem with one of the practitioners in my team. I was a bit disturbed by the way she handled things without any communication with me. I looked within, and all I could think of was “she was wrong and I was right”. My head was full of reasons to justify how I felt towards her. I looked at the list of events that were coming up, and thought about the predestined sentient being arranged by Master to see Shen Yun from this list. I will be partly responsible, if I don’t do well as a coordinator in this team. I asked Master for help and guidance, on how to be a good coordinator. The words from Hong Yin III came to my mind.
?始?,我和一名???通上有??,我?他不与我?通就?理事情的方式有?不?。我向?找,但我所能想到的都是她的?,我是?的,我的??中充?了我?她有如此看法的正?理由。我看?活?安排表,想?表上?父安排?看神?的有??生,作?一?小???人如果?做好,我?要?部分?任的。我?求?父?助和指?,如何能成?一名好的??人???,我?海中出?了《洪吟 三》中的?句∶

“Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong
As a cultivator
One always looks for one’s own faults
’Tis the Way to get rid of attachments most effectively
There’s no way to skip ordeals, big or small
[During a conflict, if you can remember:]
“He’s right,
And I’m wrong,”
What’s to dispute?”
<?是?非>
修?人
自找?
各种人心去的多
大?小??想落
?的是他
?的是我
?什厶

Suddenly all the negative thought towards this practitioner disappeared; I started to see only the positive side of this practitioner, and her valuable contribution to the team. I apologised to her, saying it is entirely my fault for not communicating well with her. “Cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master.” (Lecture 1 in Zhuan Falun)
突然我??位同修的?面想法消失了,我?始只看?位同修好的那面,及她?????的??。我向她道歉,??通好都是我的?。“修在自己,功在?父。”(《?法?》第一?)


In order to be a good coordinator, I must first apply a high standard to myself, to remind myself to be more considerate, more tolerant, and willing to take more work than others. It requires letting go of “SELF”, layer by layer like peeling an onion. In order to do well in promoting Shen Yun, maintaining harmony within the team is utmost importance. After all, it is Master who is doing Shen Yun, and we know there is nothing Master can’t do, when we meet the standard of what is require of us in the Fa. Shen Yun promotion is a great cultivation opportunity for us to work together to form one strong, formidable body.
要做一名好的??人,我首先必?用高?准要求自己,提醒自己要更加体?、更加?容,愿意比他人承?更多的工作。?需要放?“自我”,一?一?象?洋?一?。?了很好的推?神?,保持??的和?是极其重要的。?竟都是?父在做,我?知道,?我??到法?我?的要求?,?父?所不能。神?推?是?我?一起合作、形成一??大整体的良好修?机?。


3. Forming one strong formidable body
三、形成?大的整体
We approach organizations with a proposal, and it’s our responsibility to ensure the confirmed proposal is carried out and delivered. I used to get very upset when a practitioner didn’t deliver what he/she promised, and I would have resentment towards the practitioner.
我???提案接触各???,保?被确?的提案能付??施并完成是我?的?任,我曾??同修?有完成他/她答?的任?感到非常不安,并?同修有怨恨。


A few weeks ago, we had a contra deal to publish a charity event on the social page of one of our magazine media. When the time came to honor our commitment, I was told by the magazine management that I had to write the article and do the layout. I asked one of my team members, if she cold help to write the article. She said she had already written a similar article for the newspaper, but the management at the magazine said it was too long, so they can’t use it. I asked the practitioner if she could shorten it. She said no, she didn’t have time. No one was willing to make a compromise。 As the deadline to submit the article for the magazine was drawing closer,I thought to myself “What am I going to do?” I stayed calm and kept reminding myself to keep my thought on the Fa, and knew that this is for me to cultivate through. Suddenly the penny dropped, why  don’t I ask a practitioner who has experience in writing article to write in English for me, and I can get it translated into Chinese. After I checked with the management of the magazine, she gave the go ahead, and the practitioner was happy to help without any hesitation. I spoke to the CEO of the charity event, and asked if there were any special things she liked me to mention in the social page of the magazine? She emailed me something and the practitioner just had it tidy it up. I went through the hundreds of pictures of the event. Out of hundreds of pictures the client sent me, I picked 30 pictures and sent them to the magazine together with the article just in time for the dead line.  Because everyone cooperated so well, the field was harmonious and everything just simply fell into place. On top of it, I couldn’t believe,that of the 30 pictures, the magazine published the most important 5 pictures of the event without me even mentioning it. I felt Master was there watching over me, encouraging and helping me. Thus a seemingly tough problem was resolved easily.  Just as “... when you can really do it, just like that worn and weary traveler, you’ll see, 'the shade of willows, the blooms of flowers, a place to rest my head'!” (Lecture 9 in Zhuan Falun )
几周前,我??得了一?互惠??,在我?的一?媒体的社?版面上?道慈善活?。?到了要??我?的承?的?候,那??志的管理人?告?我,我必?自己?文章并排版。我?一???,她是否可以?忙?文章,她?她已?????了?似的文章,但是那??志的管理人??那?文章太?了,不能用。我?那位同修是否可以改短,她?不行,?有??。?有一?人愿意承?此事。到了快要??志交稿的期限?,我心想?怎厶?呢?我保持?定,不?提醒自己保持正念,并??到?是要我修的。突然,我?机一?,?什厶不??位?文章有素的同修?出英文,我再?人翻?成中文呢?在???志管理人?后,她????,而且那位同修也很高?出手?助。我?那?慈善活?的??人,是否有什厶特殊的事情需要在那??志的社?版面上提及的,她用?子?件??我一些?西,那位同修只要整理一下就可以了。我查看了活?的几百?照片,?中挑?出了30?,并和文章一起正好在截稿??之前??了?志社。由于每?人都密切合作,那??是?容的,所有的事情?利完成。?我不敢相信的是,在那30?照片中,他??表了活?最重要的5?照片,而?5?照片我并?有向他?提?。我感到?父在看?我,鼓?和?助我。??,一?看似很困?的??很容易就解?了,正如?父所?的∶
“如果你真能做到的?,你??真是柳暗花明又一村!”(《?法?》第九?)


The CEO was so pleased. She wrote to me and thanked me for going out of my way to look after her. She said she would like to help to promote Shen Yun within her networking circle.
那位??人非常高?,她十分感激,她?信?我并感?我?身?地?她?想。她表示愿意?助在她的社交圈子中推?神?。


Above are my recent experiences in the role of Shen Yun coordinating team. Please kindly point out anything that is inappropriate in my understanding.
以上是我最近承?神?推???人的体?,如有不?之?,敬?指正。
Together we can fulfill our prehistoric vows and improve as a whole.
?我?一起完成我?的史前大愿,共同提高。
Thank you, Teacher.
Thank you, fellow practitioners.
???父!
??同修!
