Practice and Taking Responsibility
The purpose of cultivating
diligently and solidly is to reach Consummation as soon as possible. A
cultivator is simply one who eliminates the attachments of an everyday person.
Disciples, you need to be clear about what you’re doing!
responsible to Dafa, the assistance centers, general assistance centers in
different regions, and the Research Society have the right to replace any
assistant or person in charge of a branch. So at times, persons in positions of
responsibility may be replaced according to different situations. Because a
person in charge is, first of all, a cultivator who has come here for
cultivation practice rather than to be in charge, he should be able to move up
and down in his position. Being assigned a position with responsibility is for
cultivation practice, yet a person can practice cultivation all the same without
holding a position of responsibility. If the person being replaced cannot get
over it, isn’t that caused by his attachment? Isn’t it a good opportunity
for him to get rid of that attachment? Given this, if he still cannot let go of
this attachment, this clearly indicates that it is correct to make the
replacement. Being attached to a position of responsibility is itself an impure
motive for cultivating. So let me remind disciples: You won’t be able to reach
Consummation without letting go of this attachment.
