A Dafa Practitioner's Experience of Distributing Truth-Clarifying Material in the Countryside
(Clearwisdom.net) I'm 67 this year and began to learn Falun Dafa on April 16, 1998. Before practicing Falun Dafa, I suffered from neuralgia. Every morning my nose bled, it was hard for me to move, and I vomited while in bed. Later, I also had thyroid adenoma, rheumatoid arthritis and neurodermatitis. Life was so miserable for me at that time.
On April 16, 1998, I obtained the Fa. I happened to run across Teacher's Fa lectures that practitioners were showing on video in Jinan at that time, and felt great after attending the first lecture. The second day, I invited my husband and another colleague to go there too. After that I attended whatever Dafa activities I could attend, and all my diseases quickly disappeared.
In December 1999, a fellow practitioner gave me some envelopes containing truth-clarification material. I thought that it was a good way for distributing the material because it was a safe and serious way that made people attach importance to it. So from then on I used this method to distribute materials. I posted them in the doorways of buildings. I've been doing this for several years now.
In 2001 I went back to my hometown to distribute Dafa materials. Afraid of opposition from my relatives, I went out to distribute the materials without their knowledge. Several months later, I went back to my hometown again. This time, upon my arrival, my brother-in-law asked me what I had done last time I visited. I told him what I did and explained that I thought the family would oppose my action. My brother-in-law who is not a practitioner said, "I like it. The people here think that the Dafa flyers must not have come from a local person, but from a very capable Falun Gong practitioner from elsewhere. They like the flyer too. Some people also received one in an envelope. I guessed it was you who did it." I smiled at him. My brother-in-law said, "Give me some. I'll go with you."
At 8:00 p.m., my sister and brother-in-law took some flyers and went out to distribute them with me. I sent forth righteous thoughts while they were distributing the flyers ahead of me. I said in my heart, "Eliminate all the evil factors here, restrain the persecutors from coming out, and get rid of the evil interference behind those who receive the flyers. Most importantly, let the people know that Falun Dafa is good and let them not miss this unprecedented opportunity."
In the countryside every family has a dog that barks whenever they hear any strangers. I sent forth the righteous thought, "Stop barking. We are doing the purest thing to save people, and it is also a chance for you to position yourselves." Then the dogs stopped barking.
The roads in the countryside are uneven and muddy. Because the heels of my shoes were a bit narrow, I lost my balance over 10 times in the darkness and my feet swelled up. After we returned home, my brother-in-law wanted me to wash my feet with some alcohol. I told him, "It is all right." That evening I sent forth righteous thoughts, "Eliminate the evil dark minions' persecution of me. Let the swelling feet recover as soon as possible, and I will go to validate the Fa again tomorrow."
The next morning my feet were much better, and I could wear shoes. My brother-in-law was surprised and said, "So marvelous! If it were an ordinary person, it would take at least two weeks to recover. Yet you recovered after only one night. It seems I should practice Falun Dafa too."
In June 2004, I suddenly had a strange headache and became too light-headed to stand up. I couldn't open my eyes either. My husband measured my blood pressure and found it was 210-130 mm Hg. It felt as if my head was going to blow up, and it was very painful. However, the more painful it became, the more I intensified sending forth righteous thoughts. I said in my mind, "I am Li Hongzhi's disciple, and no one is able to harm me. Let the pain disappear as soon as possible." I sent forth righteous thoughts this way every hour for the whole night. By 5:00 a.m., my blood pressure had dropped to 130-80 mm Hg, and the pain lessened greatly. I also practiced the exercises.
Teacher told us,
"Dafa disciples' sending forth righteous thoughts at this special historic period--in order to reduce the evil beings' persecution of Dafa, Dafa disciples, and the people of the world--has played a very critical role." ("Righteous Thoughts")
From that day on, I sent forth righteous thoughts at 5:00, 6:00 and 7:00 a.m. every morning, and at12:00 noon and 6:00 and 12:00 p.m. every evening.
