Cultivation 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!

To be 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.
