Taiwanese high school teachers share from being personal to me to moving towards a harmonious whole
Ms. Huang, a high school teacher who obtained the Fa in 1997, said that before cultivating, she was a person who preferred to be alone, thinking that it would be good for her to do her duty well. After practicing as a counselor and coordinator, she realized that this is to get rid of the selfishness of “being alone”. She realized that after clarifying her thoughts on the principles of the Fa, she set the basic point right, and she must improve together with fellow practitioners, and she should not have a mind of being above the students. If you need to communicate with fellow practitioners in good faith and sincerity, you cannot avoid it, so that you can improve as a whole.
Ms. Huang shared that it is necessary to cultivate the heart of fear of difficulties. When facing the impact of contradictory language, if you can listen calmly and calmly, you will be wise. There is also the need to cultivate the fear of offending people. You should have the courage to face it and be compassionate and tolerant. Even in the face of censure and misunderstanding, you should not feel wronged or complained. It is also necessary to listen and not listen and to meditate. I also hope that everyone can cherish the collective environment and improve together. She also realized that it is necessary to expand the capacity and actively cooperate with the whole.
Tsutamatsu dance class students share how to sublimate the mind in learning classical dance
Classmate Lin from the second-year dance class shared that he decided to go to Tsutasong Art High School to learn Chinese classical dance since he was a child. He once injured his toe, and he told himself that it was fine, not to think about the pain, and of course it wouldn’t hurt.
After learning to dance Chinese classical dance, classmate Lin yearned to stand near the middle. He said that because every time there is a performance in the stands, the eyes will be attracted to the lead dancer. At that time, he thought that through his own efforts, he hoped that his efforts would be rewarded, but behind the seemingly hard work, the motivation was the pursuit of fame and fortune, which was not pure enough. Later, he realized that serious study is the duty of students. You must use the purest heart to show the beauty of pure classical dance.
At the exchange meeting of the Tsutasatsu dance class, the teacher and classmates gave examples of each person’s strengths and weaknesses, saying that Lin always thinks carefully about the problems pointed out by the teacher, but doesn’t seem to care enough about his classmates. He looked inward for a long time and found that it was indeed the case, so when he saw that his classmates had problems, he used his own experience to help them. “Since I took the initiative to help, I found that I got far more than I paid! It’s no longer just to dance well, but to improve together as a whole.”

Although the administrative procedures in France were complicated, he still found the location by himself, completed the administrative procedures, and borrowed banners and truth materials from the practitioners.

Mr. Zhou shared that a local chief had a look of embarrassment when he heard that they were promoting the newspaper. But as they introduced to him the international development of The Epoch Times and actively established new bases in the local area, to bring an international outlook to the local area, the more they listened, the more energetic they became. All the grassroots units that he has the power to decide on have all subscribed newspapers. When he sent them away, he looked like another person, with a clear and cheerful expression.
As a business and business executive for many years, in this environment, he must constantly set goals and strive to achieve them. Some time ago, he often felt tired and tired. He realizes that while overemphasizing himself, he is also accustomed to demanding others with his own standards, so he easily loses kindness, reason and tolerance. Mr. Zhou realized that it should be taken seriously, and he should get rid of it in his diligent practice and truly improve.
