Righteous Determination in Dafa Leads to Harmony in My Home Environment
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a 57-year-old Dafa practitioner. In June 2000, I went to Beijing to validate the Fa and was later abducted by the police from Fushun City, Liaoning Province. I was detained at the Dashagou Detention Center before I was released in August 2000. After my release, my family members did not allow me to leave home. My village also sent in people to monitor me around the clock. They also ordered my family members to keep a close watch on me.
Teacher said, "The environment is created by you, yourselves, and it, too, is essential for your improvement." ("Environment" from Essentials for Further Advancement)
I realized that I should not be restrained by my family members and I should use the tremendous changes in both my mind and body after practicing Dafa to validate the Fa. I said firmly to my husband and children, "I must study the Fa and practice the exercises. No one can stop me. I must repay the benefit I gained from cultivating Dafa. Before my cultivation, we used to quarrel with each other all day long, but now you see how harmonious our family is. The illnesses that haunted me for over 30 years have also disappeared. In the past, every winter I couldn't get out because of my sickness. But now I am very healthy. Don't you all see this? I must go out to clarify the truth."
After this conversation, my husband changed his attitude and my children no longer prevented me from going out. My little grandson even followed me to do the exercises. They would also correct me if they saw my hand gesture of sending forth righteous thoughts was not accurate. Early this year my husband was gored by a bull. The bullhorn was broken, yet he was all right. From this incident, my husband truly experienced the power of Dafa and the compassion of Teacher. From then on, he started to help me deliver truth-clarification materials, and he even encouraged practitioners who had the attachment of fear to step forward to validate Dafa. A while ago, he went back with me to my hometown to clarify the truth. Even though he does not cultivate, he tells others that Dafa practitioners are all good people. My children are also very supportive of me and they sometimes help my fellow practitioners who are in financial difficulty.
Because of my determination in cultivating Dafa and being a Dafa disciple openly and nobly, the environment in my home has completely changed.
