A Young Practitioner's Story in Fa-Rectification
(Clearwisdom. Net) My name is Dongdong. I am a fifth grade elementary student living in Sichuan Province. I have been practicing Falun Dafa for nine months. My mother is also a practitioner. Before I obtained Dafa, I was always happy to go out to spread and post truth-clarifying materials with my mom and aunt. Sometimes, I distributed some of the literature by myself. Each time I did this I felt very happy. It was in this way that I joined the Fa-Rectification process even before I had a clear purpose or understanding for the need to do so. Later, I came to know the true meaning of cultivation practice based on the universal principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance" and also obtained further understanding that it is each practitioner's urgent responsibility to clarify the truth to those deceived people in the world. The following are a few of my experiences during Fa-rectification. I sincerely hope that when all practitioners my age read these experiences, they will also actively take part in speaking out about the truth to people.
Recently, our county held a picture exhibition in a hotel slandering Dafa and required that every student in our school attend. All students were also required to write articles against Dafa. At that time, since I was unable to find any better excuse for not going, I handed in a sick-leave note to my teacher. Then I went back home and started to read Zhuan Falun by myself. That afternoon before I went back to school, I asked my mom and two aunts to help me by sending forth righteous thoughts. When I left for school, they started doing so with the thought of "stop my teacher from giving out the assignment of writing articles against Dafa." As we had expected, when the teacher came into my classroom, she looked slightly ill. She told us that she had a bad headache and felt sick and said that we would not be writing articles against Falun Gong. After school, I told my mom what had happened during class. She said with a smile, "That's right. When your teacher told you not to write articles slandering Dafa, she avoided doing bad things against Dafa and your classmates have been spared from doing wrong things which would bring harm to themselves in the future."
Once, when my mother and I went out to put up Dafa truth clarifying flyers, we saw a police car parked next to the road. Calmly and confidently, I walked up and pasted a flyer on the car.
Since then, I have often brought Dafa literature to school. Sometimes I place them in teachers' offices. Sometimes I put them up in appropriate places so that all my classmates and teachers can know about the truth of Falun Gong. One day my teacher asked me, "Are you practicing Falun Gong?" I just smiled at her without answering her question and she did not asked me again. Later I realized that it was actually a test for me to see if I was fearful or not. Sometimes people would pass by as I was putting up the posters. I would quickly bend down and pretend to tie my shoelaces and silently recite the Fa-rectifying verse. Whenever we have visitors at home, I tell them about Falun Dafa and also invite them to watch Falun Gong truth clarifying VCDs.
The above are some of my experiences of cultivation during Fa-rectification. I will try my best to help more people learn the truth of Falun Gong so that they will keep the thought "Falun Dafa is good" in their hearts.
