My Daughter's Path Following Master in Fa-Rectification
(Clearwisdom.net) By telling some stories about my daughter's cultivation path, I hope to encourage all practitioners who are parents to treat their children's cultivation seriously. Thousands and thousands of young practitioners have come to Earth with their vow to assist Master in Fa-rectification. Let the hundreds of millions of Dafa practitioner's righteous thoughts and righteous actions combine into magnificence to welcome the arrival of the Fa-rectification on Earth.
My daughter is now twelve years old. She had begun practicing Dafa with me in February 1999 when she was only six years old. Although the brutal persecution began only months after she began cultivation, she was able to display how she was pure and supernormal.
At that time, members of my family burned any Dafa materials and books they found. However, in plain sight of her father and grandfather my daughter salvaged a picture of Master that was torn in half. We glued it back together carefully, laminated it, and placed it in a compartment in my daughter's bag. She carried Master's picture in her bag for almost four years. Although her third eye was not open, she believed in Master firmly. In the worst days of the persecution when the evil was rampant, she did not look or even listen to the lies and the propaganda. In fact, she even encouraged me to firmly believe in Dafa.
In 2001, my daughter brought it up to me that both of us should write Solemn Declarations. After succumbing to pressure from the authorities and for many other reasons, my daughter and I resumed studying the Fa and cultivating in 2003. From the moment we began cultivation again, she was filled with extraordinary wisdom and a very daring heart. We made banners and flyers and posted them near labor camps and the city hall. For safety considerations, we would do these activities around 1 a.m. She would always ask me to wake her and take her along even if she was sleeping. I am a rather timid person and do not dare to do a lot of things and I am often attached to fear. At those times, she would have me wait by the side while she would post and distribute materials. Gradually, she helped me strengthen my righteous thoughts and I became much more daring to do many things.
At the end of 2003, I clarified the truth to a colleague who reported me to our superviser. My work unit forced me to write statements and my husband scolded me and gave me a beating. When I returned home, I cried my heart out. But then my daughter's words again awakened me--"Mom, evil gods have done this. It is not Master's arrangement. You have to continue cultivating."
I have now gradually begun to walk a cultivation path of my own, and my daughter is also walking her own cultivation path.
At first, my daughter only clarified the truth to strangers, but now she clarifies the truth to her classmates with wisdom. She even makes use of the QQ online chat program in internet cafés to clarify the truth to people on the net. On the internet, she would send ancient prophecies to people, and slowly get into the topic of clarifying the truth, as well as answering questions that are posed to her. One day, she came back and told me, "Mom, today I talked to a Communist Party member, and she told me that she is not against Dafa now." My daughter's grandmother lives in the designated area for family members of officials in the City Council, and she frequently goes there to distribute flyers. Once, my daughter placed a truth clarification flyer on a police car parked near the Political and Judicial Committee Building, near her grandmother's place. Unexpectedly, someone was in the car. My daughter simply looked at him and continued placing the flyer until she was done then left.
Of course, my daughter likes to play, watch TV, and is also vain. I told her that she has to remove these attachments and do the three things that Master has said to do well. Sometimes, she would be unhappy but after cooling down, she would admit her mistake. I once scolded her very harshly, and she cried asking Master to help her remove these ordinary people's attachments.
Many children cultivate with their third eye open, but my daughter's eye has always been closed. For almost six years she has not seen anything, while for me, sometimes I can even see Falun. Sometimes, my daughter feels very sad about it, but she is very clear on the Fa and tells me, "Mother, I'm the sort who cultivates that "can depend on his enlightening to reach Consummation", it's even harder than you." (quote from Essentials for Further Advancement, Volume I)
My daughter is both my fellow practitioner and a member of my family. The two of us are a small Fa-study group. We practice the exercises and study the Fa together, and we are a good partnership in assisting Master's Fa-rectification. As I took her on my bike zig-zagging through streets and alleys, she would place truth clarification flyers and CDs in people's baskets and windows and also post banners on lamp posts or trees. Sometimes, she would also distribute materials during the day.
My daughter is also a very beneficial friend to me in my cultivation. She often gives me ideas and points out my flaws. At times when I'm falling behind, she encourages me to do better. None of my family, friends or relatives support me except my daughter. She has given me the confidence to walk this path. I thank Master for having arranged such a young practitioner to accompany me. Without a doubt, my daughter is a manifestation to me of the great Fa.
