A bit of
experience on my first Shen Yun promotion
By a practitioner from Adelaide
a new practitioner from Adelaide and I obtained the Fa about 6
months ago. This is my first time to promote Shen Yun. As I am
inexperienced, please kindly correct me if I am wrong.
18th December I arrived in Sydney and now a few weeks have passed.
Before I came, I was thinking whether I would feel like a stranger and
feel lonely as it was my first trip to Sydney and I didn't know
anybody. Upon my
I let go of this worry completely. In a place with so many
fellow practitioners, why should I feel strange or lonely?
was my first time to sell tickets, there were many things that I did
not know. As far as I can recall, it has also been my first time to
stand 9 to 10 hours a day for the last 22 years. So it was
hard for me during the first day. Through Fa study, I felt
obviously more energetic on the second day. I was in Bondi Junction,
and some practitioner said that this shopping centre was not very good
and we could not sell as many tickets as
other shopping malls. Therefore, I sometimes also had negative
thoughts on my mind. After I shared with other practitioners, I
realized that I should not have any thoughts and just do what I should
do. Master can see our hearts and HE would lead
us those people with predestined relationship. So from the 3rd day,
I did not feel that hard. I could still study the Fa and share with
others when coming back from a whole day promotion. During the first
two days, I just went straight
sleep after coming back. However on the 4th day, I left about
3:00pm. The original arrangement was that I stay from 9:00am to 6pm. I
felt that my state of mind that day wasn't good at all. Other
said that we had enough manpower, so I left early. In
fact I knew that it was because my heart was not pure and not within
the Fa. That morning I didn't read the Fa or do the exercises, so I
my state of mind was not as good as after studying the Fa and
doing the exercises. That day, a veteran practitioner said that it felt
like this field had not been opened. I also kept thinking why my state
of mind was so bad .
came to realize that it was due to my not studying the Fa and doing
the exercises. On my present level, I think that I should ensure to
study the Fa and do the exercises first in order to maintain a good
state of mind.
the 5th day, I did Fa study and exercises before I left. That day
was the day I sold the most tickets and my state of mind was the best.
I realize deeply in my mind that Master has been compassionate with me
and given me
opportunity to do such a wonderful thing. I should not let the old
force take advantage of my attachments. In the process of ticket
selling, I recited Hong Yin in my heart and looked with a smile at
those walking-past sentient beings waiting to
saved. I knew that only when practitioners did well could sentient
beings have the hope to be saved. I thought that probably because of
the power of reciting Hong Yin, I felt deeply at that instant that I
was a cultivator, and my mission was
help Master with Fa rectification. That day I felt that
practitioners also cooperated very well. A veteran practitioner said
that it was the last day before the shopping mall was closed for
holiday, so there were a lot of people and tickets sold well. As
practitioner, I think that if we are within the Fa and our hearts are
pure enough, people with predestined relationship would come. If the
field that day had not been so righteous, people would not necessarily
have been drawn to us even when there were
lot of people around. In fact, during the Christmas holiday period,
there were a lot of shoppers every day. Only that particular day gave
me an impressive feeling that sentient beings were longing to be saved.
Hence, only when our hearts are righteous
can the field be righteous. It is not an ordinary people's thing or
task to complete.
is a bit of my experience on my first time in Sydney and first time
involvement in promoting Shen Yun. Thanks everyone!
