The Power of One Body in a Fa Study Group in China
(Clearwisdom.net) An elderly Falun Dafa practitioner named Ms. Wang saw that a copy of Minghui Weekly (collection of articles from Minghui/Clearwisdom website) would be circulated in several villages. She made up her mind that an environment of one body must be formed in order for practitioners to study the Fa together, sharing and improving together. Since then, from 8:00-10:30 p.m. every night, more than ten practitioners study the Fa and share experiences and understandings. No wind or rain has ever deterred us and we've never canceled it.
There was frequent interference during that time. The police often monitored us, and one day, they threatened that they would arrest this practitioner and detain that practitioner on another day. Every night we sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil elements in other dimensions. Due to the effect of our righteous thought, the police simply threatened and did not succeed in doing any damage.
A fellow practitioner had been in a state of personal cultivation for a long time. In autumn she started to experience symptoms that affected her body like "sickness karma." She could not figure out how this could happen, as she thought she had spent a lot of effort in studying the Fa. She was extremely upset. Several of us practitioners went to talk to her and share experiences with her. We discovered that she did little in clarifying the truth, did not often send forth righteous thoughts, and her study was limited to reading Zhuan Falun and she did not read much of Master's new articles. When the cause of her situation was found, her physical condition changed and she gradually improved.
Later, similar symptoms appeared again. This practitioner suddenly could not walk; she appeared to have had a stroke. This time, she knew that it was the persecution from the old forces and that this should not be accepted. At the same time, we united in the power of the one body and helped her to send forth righteous thoughts. Dafa practitioners are one body. Even though a fellow practitioner had omissions, she did not give the old forces permission to persecute her. As a result, she recovered within three days.
When we heard a fellow practitioner in another village also had symptoms that appeared like "sickness karma" we also sent forth righteous thoughts for him as one body and we all improved together. Our study group further played a positive role in spreading Dafa. We know in our hearts that all of this has come from Master and Dafa. Without Master and Dafa, we cannot succeed in anything.
