A New Beginning in the Fa Rectification Cultivation
October 11, 2001
(Clearwisdom.net) An old couple in Hebei province has been practicing Dafa for years. Since July 20th, 1999 [when the government banned Falun Gong], they had been thinking to go to Beijing to validate the Fa. However, they were always unable to go either because of their concern for their son, or because of the money (they are bearing a debt of 200,000 Yuan for their son). Moreover, they still had a heart of fear that prevented them from going to Beijing to validate the Fa.
After they studied Teacher's article "Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciples," they came to understand what Fa-Rectification period Dafa disciples are. They also realized that our Teacher has given us so much, and that he is arranging the process of Fa rectification in due order, which is being done so rapidly. They understood that their son had his own fate, and that Teacher would arrange everything for him since he had obtained Dafa, too. "It is no use to be at home all day thinking about paying the debt, " they thought. "We had better put down this attachment and pay the debt after we return from Beijing safely." "Moreover, we have made a solemn pledge to our Teacher; we cannot take no action after making such a solemn declaration, because such a behavior is contemptible even among everyday people."
When they stepped out of their home, they still felt fear in their heart. However, as long as they thought about the fact that there is nothing to fear with the company of Teacher and the Fa, they were encouraged to make further steps. "Teacher will guide us not to meet any danger; Teacher is just beside us and is protecting us all the time because we believe in Teacher and in Dafa," they said to themselves. They sent forth righteous thoughts all the way. The sights and sounds and the people talking along the way did not enter their mind at all. There was nothing but Teacher's words, "the Fa rectifies the cosmos, the evil is completely eliminated," in their thoughts.
The moment they got off the bus at Tiananmen Square, the male practitioner couldn't help the tears that ran down his cheeks. "Master, I have come; we will finally go out to fulfill our solemn pledge," he said to himself. They went to the front of the gate of Tiananmen where there were a lot of tourists. Imagining that they had a large hollow tube extending to the sky, they cried out in the voice that had been in their hearts for such a long time: "Falun Dafa is good! Restore the fame of Dafa and Master!" The voice pierced through the sky and shocked the tourists. Holding the banner and pointing to her husband, the female practitioner said to them: "It is Dafa that saved him; Dafa gave him a new life."
They went safely home after validating Dafa in Tiananmen Square. They are now continuing their effort in telling the truth of Dafa to people and they will take every step well from this new beginning of their Fa rectification cultivation.
