been 14 years since I obtained the Fa in October, 1996. But only
recently have I realised that I am just cultivating from the very
beginning. I have actually just begun to learn how to genuinely
a dream one night. It was a couple of years ago. While other
practitioners were taking a leisurely walk together on the side bank, I
was heading straight forward. I saw Master smile and sit at the bow of
a ship, where I stepped
on. I sat beside Master immediately. After waking up, I am full of
happiness and pleasure.
the dream, I realise that Master was pointing out my shortcoming,
which is: forging ahead alone according to my own interests, and not
considering others when speaking and acting. Therefore, I may not have
truly contributed to the improvement of the whole body.
inward, I realise that I could see others' shortcomings quickly
and pointing it out to them sharply because I strongly believe that it
is my obligation. Speaking out makes me feeling comfortable even though
it may not be acceptable to others but I didn' t
seem to put too much thought in that regard. For years, I have been so
used to this.
“I often say that if all a person wants is the well-being of
others and if this is without the slightest personal motivation or
personal understanding, what he says will move the listener to
tears.…While working, your tone of voice,
kindheartedness, and your reasoning can change a person's heart,
whereas commands never could!” (“Clearheadedness”, from “Essentials for
Further Advancement”, June 13, 1997)
that there is a huge gap there for me to catch up, as I haven't
experienced the state and the realm that Master has put forward.
Sometimes, I was only been tricky in interacting with others.
night not long ago, a fellow female practitioner came to my house to
send righteous thoughts, to help my father, also a practitioner who is
facing the physical body tribulation. Filled with righteous thoughts,
she spoke to him, and encouraged him to believe
in Master and the Fa so that he can pass through the tribulation

whole day. She hadn't even had any water to drink. Without any small
talk, she started immediately.

are all Master's disciples. Master treasures us much more than we do to
ourselves. We should care for each other. ”
late and dark. That night, when I offered to drive her home, she
resolutely refused and insisted on taking a train back. She said that
she always come across predestined people to quit the CCP in the train
(after wards, I found out
she encouraged three people to quit the CCP that night). She
sighed and said. “Time is limited. So many people are waiting to be
saved. Even if I run, I still cannot reach as many of them as I wish. While
doing housework at home, I am always thinking how to hurry up to save
help crying when seeing her disappearing in the darkness. At
that moment, my heart was filled with gratitude to Master and fellow
practitioners. I was uplifted by compassion, and I also saw my own
shortcomings and gaps.
didn't point out my weaknesses. She also didn't use
Master's teachings to tell me how to do better. What indeed touched me?
I think this is linked to what Master said:
a person wants is the well-being of others and if this is without
the slightest personal motivation or personal understanding…”
(“Clearheadedness”, from “Essentials for Further Advancement”, June 13,
1997). It is the pure
selfless heart that moves me. I have been used to the way of
keeping an eye on others' shortcomings. What hides underneath my words
is “you are wrong, I am telling you the right thing. ” This is actually
to ask others to
what I believe, which is only based on my own notions and
limited understanding. In short, this is “selfishness”. Accordingly,
how can that be convincing and acceptable to others?
again, Master compassionately arranged practitioners to enlighten
me and push me forward on my cultivation path. Master said: “This
period of time will not last long, but it can forge the mighty virtue
of magnificent Enlightened Beings, Buddhas, Daos, and Gods
different levels, and even Lords of different levels. It can also
destroy overnight a cultivator who has reached a really high level but
who has become less strict with himself.” ( “Fa-Rectification Period
Dafa Disciples” of “Essentials for Further Advancement”, August 15,
enlightening when studying the Fa. I realise that it is essential
for a practitioner to strengthen Fa study and truly cultivate. I also
realise that only when I thoroughly change the habit of looking
outwards, can I contribute to the whole body.
it is a critical stage in Shen Yun promotion. There is no other way
for us, but to believe in Master and the Fa, and follow Master's
teachings without any compromise. Master provides us with everything,
and all He needs is our pure and unshakeable hearts.
“Opportunity knocks but once. Once the illusion that you cannot
let go of disappears, you will realize what you have lost. ” (

Further Advancement” , October 13, 1995) .
