A Teenage Girl's Cultivation Environment
March 23, 2003
(Clearwisdom.net) Xueer, a 14 year old, is a middle school student. Three years ago, Xueer was banned from going to school for a total of 3 months just because she practiced Falun Gong. For the last three years, Xueer has clarified the truth through various methods. Sometimes she would give origami cranes with the words "Falun Dafa is good" written on them to her classmates. Sometimes she told cultivation stories of ancient and modern people. Her classmates admired her more and more, and her cultivation environment became better and better.
One night, Xueer had a dream. She dreamed that her classmates were "fighting" to read Zhuan Falun. Therefore Xueer took her Zhuan Falun to school. Just like in the dream, her classmates vied with one another to borrow her book. On another occasion, her school had a quiz, and the subject was to write a poem or to recite a good poem that few people in the class knew. Xueer recited Li Hongzhi's "Descending to The Earthly World." Her teacher, also the provost of the school, gave her a full score. She praised Xueer for selecting a fine poem, and asked her to read the poem before the entire class.
Xueer's mother and aunt didn't understand Dafa initially, but nevertheless they recently began to practice. When doing the sitting exercise, Xueer's aunt could feel that she and some white, glowing, diamond shaped objects were floating together. After she felt the magnificence of Dafa, her aunt regretted that she began to practice Dafa so late. Recently, Xueer's mother and another fellow practitioner had a very similar dream. Both of them dreamed that the Jiang was on trial and the evil people were escaping in panic. Xueer has a one and a half year old niece. She would grab Zhuan Falun every time she saw others reading the book. She would look at and kiss the Book, Master's picture, the Falun in the cover page, and the words in the book, and would not let go. In Xueer's family, there are a total of 12 people practicing Dafa.
"The different states of their cultivation result in their different perceptions. Some might think the situation is grim; for some people the situation might seem to have already eased up; and some people might think that it's precisely a great opportunity to save sentient beings and clarify the truth. People's different grasps of and comprehension of the Fa lead to different perceptions of the current situation, and all that's happening is targeting different human thoughts. Those who do well will change the environments around them, and those who do poorly will make the environments around them change according to their states of mind."
