Master Is Looking After Us at All Times
(Clearwisdom.net) Recently I read the article series "Recalling Experiences with Master with Gratitude." I was deeply touched by the moving stories of practitioners recalling how Master toured the country giving lectures, the magnificence and beauty of Dafa and Master's immense benevolence. I was moved to tears and could hardly express my gratitude. In order to validate the Fa and express my gratitude for Master's benevolence, I wrote down the following experiences of cultivation. This was to express my great admiration for our venerable Master and how deeply we students miss our Master.
I started practicing Falun Gong in June 1996. Someone introduced me to Falun Gong and gave me the book Zhuan Falun. In the table of the contents, one line captured my attention, which reads "Zhen-Shan-Ren is the Sole Criterion to Discern Good and Bad People" I read through this paragraph seriously and was greatly moved. It was really remarkable that someone could write such a book in this day and age! He is go great! I then had a wish in my heart that I would only practice Falun Gong in this lifetime. I then started to learn the movements of the exercises according to the pictures and the explanations in the book. I bought two copies of Zhuan Falun, one set of lecture tapes and one video of the exercise demonstrations. I had then entered the gate of cultivation.
"An Explicit Reminder" was the first article I had the chance to read. It was one Sunday afternoon, not long after I started practicing Falun Gong. Master mentioned primordial spirits leaving bodies in the article. At the time one thought came across my mind, "Was there such a thing as a primordial spirit that could leave the body?" I read the article several times. Master warned us that we must return after the primordial spirit leaves the body and that the flesh body would die if the primordial spirit didn't return. It was summer and I was lying on the floor to rest. As soon as I closed my eyes, I myself came out of my flesh body (I was very clearheaded at the time). I ascended quickly. I could feel the sound of the wind beside my ears. My body was so light and I felt so comfortable. I ascended to the sky in the blink of an eye. Pieces of clouds were floating around my body. At the moment I remembered Master's article. Wasn't it that my primordial spirit had left my flesh body? I very much wanted to come back. I wanted to come back... I opened my eyes and found I was lying on the floor. Actually I didn't go to sleep at all. Simply because I had a slight doubt about the primordial spirit leaving the body when I read the article, Master let me experience it. I was very happy and very excited. It furthered my determination in cultivation from then on. Master's every word is absolutely the truth.
In the first year of my cultivation I didn't have contact with any practitioners. I practiced the exercises at home every day. I seldom studied the Fa and I only listened to Master's lectures on tape once. But Master nevertheless regarded me as his disciple. He cleansed my body. One year later Master gave me hints and guided me to find a practice site. From that time I attended group practice and Fa study. On Sundays I attended Falun Dafa promotion activities with other volunteers. Dafa has been persecuted since July 20, 1999. Officials from the local police station and other organizations came to my work unit to talk to me. At the start I was very nervous and my heart beat fast. At that moment some round things flew out of the corner of my eyes one after another. I knew Master was giving me hints and was encouraging me. One of the officials asked me rudely, "Who dragged you into the Falun Gong organization?" I told him calmly, "Nobody dragged me. I picked it up by myself to study. There was no organization and I didn't know anybody." The head of the police station said to me, "I will take you to the police station and we will beat you and see how you behave." I decided in my mind that I would not go to the police station. I told them that the most important thing in cultivation was to cultivate one's moral character. Whether you were in the work unit, society or the family, you should act according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." Falun Gong taught me to be a good person, a better person. After two hours of talking, they didn't get what they wanted and were very annoyed. They regarded me as "stubborn minded." They planned to take me to the police station and to the brainwashing class, but my boss refused to participate so they were unable to do it. I was watched over every day. Though I was very determined in my belief in Dafa and Master, I still had bad thoughts in my mind. But I told myself that I would absolutely not write a so-called guarantee statement. When I was no longer attached to those things, one morning when I woke up, I felt a big Falun rotating above my body from head to toe. When I did the sitting meditation, I felt my body leave the ground and levitate. I felt no pain in my legs even after two hours of meditation. I was so moved that I couldn't stop my tears. Master knows every disciple's thoughts and is looking after every one of us.
Now we are at the last stage of the Fa-rectification period. I will try my best to do the three things well as required by Master. I will walk well the final path with a righteous mind and righteous actions and try to be worthy of the title, "Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple."
