尊敬的?父好!同修?好!
Greetings, revered Master. Greetings fellow practitioners.

自??到澳洲,我每年都?与推?神?的?目,2015年的神?推?也不例外。巧的是?校那?放三?多月的璁假正好到神?演出?束,同修?都??段??就是?我推?神?的,我自己也?得是。??璁假我把所有的精力和??都投入了进去,而??程中的酸甜苦辣都?我在修?中成熟起?,???父?我??的机?。
Ever since I came to Australia, I’ve been involved in promoting Shen Yun every year, and 2015 was no exception. The funny thing was, my three-month school summer vacation coincided with the time leading up to the shows. Practitioners all said this period of time was to allow me to promote Shen Yun and I thought so too. I put in all of my energy and time over the summer break to promote the show. The ups and downs that I experienced during the process made me more mature in my cultivation. Thank you Master for giving me such an opportunity.

首先克服的是怕吃苦的心。那段??我基本是5天在商??票,剩下的2天?海?或插?告牌,安排得?,心里比?踏?。??始?得很累??常??到,尤其是商??票,?常是早上很早就出?,因?有的商?很?,而且推票的八?多小??常站的我腰酸腿疼要坐下?休息。效果可想而知。
The first thing I had to overcome was fear of suffering. During that time, I was pretty much selling tickets at shopping centres five days a week, on the other two days, I helped put up posters or find new spots for Shen Yun billboards. My schedule was tight and I was steadfast. But at the beginning, I felt very tired and often arrived late. Particularly when going to the shopping centres, I often had to get up early and leave the house early as some of the centres were very far away. I often had to sit down and take a break as my back ached and feet hurt from standing for 8 hours selling tickets. You can imagine how things went.

我一直?得我把所有??都拿出?了我在?自己的全力,然而不是的,我的心?有?全力。我太看重自己的感受了,?得自己累了,??休息了,?得自己已?出?很早了,?到一???能理解一下。?父?,“有了??身体之后,冷了不行,?了不行,累了不行,?了不行,反正是苦。”(《?法?·第三?》)神?是在救人,是世人能走入未?的船票,?厶??的事,?任重大,而我?把自己?些人的感受看重了,?有以一?救人的使者的?准要求自己。
I always felt that I gave all of my time, and that I was doing my absolute best, but actually, my heart wasn’t fully committed. I placed too much emphasis on how I felt. I feel tired, so I should take a break. I feel I already left the house early, so if I’m a little late that can be forgiven. Master said: “With this body, one cannot put up with it if the body is cold, hot, tired, or hungry. In any case, it is suffering.” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture 3) Shen Yun is saving people, it is a ticket for people to enter the future. It is such a serious matter and the responsibility is huge, yet I was too concerned about how I felt - just like an everyday person. I didn’t hold myself to the standards of a practitioner who is here to save people.

?父?,“宇宙的神、?生可都看?呢,大法弟子在的位置、起到的作用,那都是?系到人?存亡的。”(《二零零五年?金山法??法》)在人的??身体的感受中打?,已?是常人的??了,正神都不?把有?人???的。?我明白?些以后,除了一?次受到干扰外,我就再也不?到了,神奇的是,我以前拖拉磨蹭的毛病也不知不?改了。而我再感?累?,我?想‘累’制?不了我,如果?是累,就?正念清除干扰,同?向?找。
Master said: “The divine beings and all sentient beings in the cosmos are watching. The positions Dafa disciples are in and the roles they are playing are both tied to the survival of humankind.” (Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005) If you’re caught up in how the human body feels, then you’re already in the state of an everyday person. The righteous gods won’t bring predestined people over to buy tickets. Once I understood this I stopped being late, except on the odd occasion. The miraculous thing is, I unconsciously changed my habit of dawdling and wasting time. And when I felt tired, I would think: “tiredness cannot impede me”. If I was still tired, I’d send righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference, and look within at the same time.

?父?,“我?人?功????胳膊就能修成了,那?直太容易了。”(《?法?·第四?》)不??其筋骨,?要苦其心志。
Master said: “I would say that it is simply too easy if one can succeed in cultivation by just holding the arms up like that.” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture 4) Not only must I temper my body, I must also temper my will.

推??程中与同修的配合也很重要。很多同修都是有很多年推?的??和自己的一套方法。配合?就?出?各自??自己的方法好,更能起到救人的效果,而看?人的?是能看到不足或者可以改进的地方。如果不能及??正?种不在法上的思想,?种思想就?被??力不?加?,?得自己的好,??于好坏??上,最??干扰我?救人。
During promotions, cooperating with practitioners is very important. Many practitioners have years of experience promoting the show, and their own way of doing things. In working with others, you’ll have times when individuals think: “my way is the best, and can save people more effectively”. When you look at others you always tend see their shortcomings or areas where they can improve. If you can’t promptly correct these kind of thoughts, which are not on the Fa, these thoughts will be continually strengthened by the old forces, making you think your way is the best, what’s good or bad and right or wrong. In the end it will interfere with us saving people.

?我看到有的同修不?主?或太主??,我?忍住不?然后告?自己不要老盯?同修,要??自己的思想,少些?念,多些正念。可??不?,?方???告?我我太主?或我太不主?,有??很??。??我的心就平?不下?了,??得委屈,??得我?看你的方法不好呢,我都在努力修自己了,可你不修自己?要改??人。越??想越委屈,今天??同修?我要主??明天另一位同修又?我太主?,到底我要怎厶做呢?自己的心被??了,整??也?得不和?,??的???生怎厶??呢。可是救人?厶?迫,耽?不起啊。我知道我要提高了,同修就像一面?子,?然?有?出?,但我心里也是?厶想同修的,?然有克制自己,但那?物??在,而且?有不喜???人?的心,甚至后?同修善意的提醒也抵触起?。
When I saw some practitioners weren’t proactive enough or too proactive, I would hold back my words and then tell myself not to focus on others, that I must purify my own thoughts, have fewer distractions and have more righteous thoughts. But that wasn’t enough.  Another person might come and tell me that I was too proactive or not proactive enough, sometimes with a strong tone. At this time, I couldn’t calm down and felt that I’d been unfairly treated. Today this practitioner wants me to be more proactive, tomorrow another practitioner says I’m not proactive enough, what exactly am I supposed to do? My heart was moved and the whole field became inharmonious. In such a state, why would sentient beings come? But saving people is so urgent, and we can’t afford to delay. I knew that I must improve. Practitioners’ notions are a reflection of my own. Although I didn’t speak about it, I also look at other practitioners in the same critical way. Although I restrained myself, the negative thoughts were still there. I really didn’t like to be criticised by others. Even when others kindly reminded me where I needed to improve, I wouldn’t accept it.

是啊,我?得自己很在理(人的理),真的在理又能怎?呢,是在法上提高了??我?是太看重表面,?有?事情中跳出?,忘?了是?父在做,我是在???程中向?找修自己,?根本上改?自己,同化大法,??出在自己?里。
Yes, I thought that I was reasonable (by everyday principles), but even if I’m reasonable what does that count for? It is whether I was improving from the Fa that matters. I was too attached to how things appear on the surface and I couldn’t rise above issues. I forgot that Master is in control of everything, and that in this process, I need to look within, change myself fundamentally and assimilate to Dafa. The problems all stem from me.

神?的?涵很深。在推??程中,我也体?到神??我的要求在不?提高。?通?神?一?考?的?候,那?我在?言?上????老?把神?一级考?的例文背下?,出乎我意料的是,老?不是?我的?英文的表??予反?,而是若有所思的?算要?她父母?票了。可是后???做得多了,我再背那些句子就?得不是?易能打?人了。因?太熟悉,很容易就成了背?的??。如果?神?的理解只停留在表面,那??出?的?是?有?涵,?有力量的。
Shen Yun has deeper meanings. In promoting Shen Yun, I could feel the requirements for me were getting higher and higher. Soon after passing the Shen Yun promotion level 1 assessment, I tried to recite one of the Shen Yun sample paragraphs to my English teacher. To my surprise, the teacher didn’t give me feedback on my English, but instead she considered how to buy tickets for her parents. Later on though, as I did more and more, the same words I recited didn’t move people as easily. Because the words had become too familiar, so it easily turned into a recitation. If my understanding of Shen Yun only stays at the surface, then what I say won’t carry any deeper meaning or have an impact.

一次我把推???常?常人看得一本??仔仔??看了一遍,?才??一些舞蹈中所表?的故事及一些??道德?念我了解的其?并不是很清楚。看完之后自己也?到不少?悟不少,再??人?的?候就更深入更全面,效果也更好,尤其自己也越?喜?神?,越?越?得神?好棒好漂亮,而???生也?被?????,也?得神?太美太好了,很快就?心而且?很??。??神?,更深入理解神?,更用心?待神?,效果?好。
Once I carefully read through the Shen Yun picture album which I often showed to everyday people when promoting the show. It was then I realised that I wasn’t very clear about the stories behind some of the dances and certain traditional moral principles. After I read it, I learnt a lot. When I spoke to others again, I could go into more depth, be more thorough, and the result was much better. I became more and more fond of Shen Yun, and the more I spoke about the show, the more I felt Shen Yun is so great, and so beautiful. At these times, sentient beings would be moved by the energy field, and they would also feel that Shen Yun is so beautiful and so good. They would be easily moved and got very excited. When you learn from Shen Yun, understand Shen Yun on a deeper level, and wholeheartedly promote Shen Yun, the result will be good.

?有一?,我也??除了神?歌曲的歌?外,?有很多舞蹈的?曲都是?父?的。???不止?些,神?真的是?父一手在做。?才想起自己以前很多?候都是用人心在?待神?,?在心里想我更喜???,或者更喜?那?,有?自己??做比?,自己都?有意?到自己在用人心衡量神?。如果?些都是?父在做,我怎厶能去按照自己的喜好?便?判呢,?在太不敬了。???神?的理解加深,我也以更?卑的心?去推?神?了。
Furthermore, in addition to the Shen Yun songs and lyrics, I understood that many of the musical compositions were also written by Master. Actually it is far more than that; Master is leading Shen Yun. I recall many times in the past I treated Shen Yun with a human mindset. I would think: “I like this piece more, I like that piece more”, and sometimes I’d also compare the performances. I didn’t realise that I was evaluating Shen Yun with a human mindset. If Shen Yun is led by Master, how could I casually judge Shen Yun with my own preferences? It is so disrespectful. As my understanding towards Shen Yun deepened, I began to promote the show with a more humble attitude.

做什厶事情?持都是至?重要的。?售人?每一天的??,都直接影?到出票的效果。每天 商?疲于奔波,慢慢的又陷入到一种做事的??中,??周而复始的重复,正念也不?了,救人的心也淡了。?父?,“得??真真的把你??要做的事情做好了,?才是了不起的。叫做就去做了,可是哪,?做事的?度上,怎厶?能?救了人????上,你不?真去思考,?是修???。”(《二零一五年??法??法》)我是要去掉??票?果的??,可是不是?得麻木。?父?我??去思考,不是做完就完了。所以每天回家后不是想? 快休息,而是想想一天?票的效果,或好或坏都是什厶原因,“少息自省添正念. 明析不足再精进。”(《洪吟二·理智醒?》)?技?到心性,????,取??短,完善自己。
Persisting in anything that you do is so important. The salesperson’s state of mind each day directly affects the ticket sales. Each day I was rushing to and from the shopping centre, and slowly I went into a state of ‘doing things’. In the routine of repetition my righteous thoughts weren’t as strong and my heart for saving people weakened.  Master said: “You have to wholeheartedly do a good job at whatever you are supposed to do—and only then is it admirable. You might be doing what you’re told, but if you don’t really pay attention to your attitude toward things or how to effectively save people, then that’s a problem in your cultivation.”  (Fa Teaching Given at the 2015 New York Fa Conference) I needed to get rid of the pursuit of selling tickets, but neither must I become indifferent. Master wants me to learn how to reflect, and not just get things done. So every day when I went home, I didn’t think about how to have a quick rest, but I thought about the day’s sales results and the reasons why it was good or bad.  Master said: “Pause for a moment of self-reflection, and increase your righteous thoughts Thoroughly analyze your shortcomings, and progress with renewed diligence” (from “Rational and Awake” , Hong Yin Vol. II)
From technique to xinxing, I must learn the lessons, learn from others, and improve myself.

?父曾在?法中?,“你们知道失去了多少生命?!看到那场上空著的座位,你们知道我啥感受?”(《大法弟子必??法》)因?那些座位明年就不是他?的了。?一些?生??,也?他得救的机?就?厶一次。我非常愧疚,突然清醒??一?。自己肩上的?任?厶重大,助?正法,救度?生,怎厶能???力利用我??未修去的人心,制造隔?干扰,起阻?作用,?不是?父要的,即使我?在磨?中修好了,?生??了,而?些所?的人心也是被?加的,不?于真正的自己。
Master said before, “Do you realize how many lives have been lost?! Do you know how I feel when I see those empty seats in the theater?” (Dafa Disciples must Study the Fa – Fa teaching given at the 2011 Washington DC Metro Area Fa Conference)
He would shed tears for those sentient beings that had lost their precious opportunity to be saved because the following year those seats wouldn’t be designated for them. For some sentient beings, perhaps this is their only chance to be saved. How can I let the old forces take advantage of the attachments which I haven’t yet cultivated away, and create gaps to interfere with us - create obstructions. This is not what Master wants. Even if we cultivate well through these tribulations, some sentient beings lost their chance.  Those attachments have been imposed on us, and they are not part of our true selves.

我曾在心里??父?,只要能??生?票得救,什厶我都要放得下,不管和?,我都要放下自我,不管什厶人心,都要在法中?正。有?看?剩下的票,我急得要哭,我在心里??父,??怎厶做才能找到?些人?他??票,我把自己交??父了,?父要怎厶做我就去做。我感?到?父?大的加持,去掉了我很多人心和不好的物?,再碰到?多事情都?不了我的心了,好像???些事情的不是我,很平淡就?去了。而?父只是?我?得更??去??自己的誓?去救度世人。
I once said to Master, as long as sentient beings buy Shen Yun tickets and are saved I will let go of anything - whatever is involved. I must let go of self regardless of what is required to achieve that. I must correct this attachment in accordance with the Fa. Sometimes when I saw unsold tickets, I was so anxious that I wanted to cry, I asked Master: “how do I find the people to buy these tickets. I hand myself over to Master, I will do what Master wants”. I felt Master’s immense strength and support, and got rid of many attachments and bad substances. When I encountered certain situations again, they couldn’t move me. It felt like what I experienced before wasn’t actually part of me and just passed by like an everyday event. Master enabled me to become more pure in fulfilling my mission to save people.

?父?,“不是?改?我要的,而是按照我?的去?容它,?就是宇宙中生命最大的善念。”(《二零零三年元宵??法》)。?我最大限度去?融?父要的,?父把我往上拔了一大截,?我走出人,走向神。
Master said: “not to change what I want, but to harmonize and complete things according to what I've said--is the best thought a being in the cosmos could have. ”
(Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference) When I did things according to what Master wants to the greatest extent possible, Master pulled me up, enabling me to walk out of humanness, walk towards godhood.

神?在悉尼的演出?一?束我就??了。我是一?不敏感的人,可是那?我的直?告?我?父?予了我好多好多,推?的?候我有???得自己很辛苦,然而我的那?付出在?父宏大的慈悲恩?中太渺小太不值一提了。一?明?的表?就是?父?我打?智慧,我最后???期??格外的?松,??各方面的表?都很突出理解能力很?,受到老?的?注,但我花在??上的??比前???期?少得多。最后???期三??拿了一?HD (High Distinction) 和??D (Distinction),其中?有我以前?疼的理??。真的???父。
When the Shen Yun shows in Sydney wrapped up, I started school again. I’m not a sensitive person, but I instinctively told myself that Master had given me so much during the promotions. Sometimes I felt it was hard, but my contribution was so tiny and unworthy of mentioning compared to Master’s immense gift of compassion. An obvious manifestation was that Master helped open up my wisdom. During the last semester my studies were such a breeze. I excelled in many aspects of my assignments, and my comprehension was strong. I was closely cared for by Master. I spent a lot less time on studying than I had in the previous two semesters. In the last semester, I received a high distinction and two distinctions. One of these was in a theory subject which used to give me a lot of headaches. I truly thank Master.

最后?想交流一?就是同修?真的要拿起???交流稿,不?是向?父??,而且法?是?父?我?留下?的修?形式之一,?稿就是主?走?父安排的路,?父?我?做的一定是最好的,在???程中?父就能?我?。??愧疚自己?次?稿分了三四次才完稿,可?三四次每次?父都?我在法理上更明白,?化我困惑或懈怠了的??,?我回到精进?的??。
Finally, the last thing I’d like to share is that practitioners truly need to put pen to paper and write an experience sharing. Not only are we reporting to Master, but the Fahui is one of the cultivation forms that Master left for us. When you write your experience sharing, you are actively walking the path arranged by Master. What Master wants us to do is definitely the best, and in this process, Master can help us. I feel guilty that it took me three or four attempts to finish writing this, but through each attempt, Master helped me become clearer on the Fa principles, hinting at the problems I was puzzled by, or problems I had overlooked, enabling me to return to the state of being diligent.

不在法上的地方?同修慈悲指正。
Practitioners, please kindly point out anything that is not appropriate.

???父!
??同修!
Thank you, Master.
Thank you, fellow practitioners.
