Having Full Confidence and Faith in Master and Dafa Is the Safest Course of Action
(Clearwisdom.net) I started cultivating Falun Dafa in the winter of 1996. I would like to share my personal experiences during these past few years of cultivation with my fellow practitioners.
Let's start from July 20, 1999. A few practitioners from a neighboring village had already been arrested. I started to go out to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa after Master had given me two hints. I would like to share the depth of my faith in Master.
I totally believe every word that Master has ever said. After Jiang's regime started to persecute Falun Gong I had told my daughters, "My Master is a great divine being. He is here to offer people salvation. He is definitely not like what the media has depicted him to be. They slander Master. All of you can tell from my conduct whether or not Falun Gong is good. I have changed drastically since I began cultivation. My illnesses all went away, and I don't need to take medication anymore."
My daughters believed me, and all had positive attitudes toward Dafa. Whenever they have time, they will go out with me to distribute Dafa truth-clarifying flyers, hang up banners, post phrases, and persuade people to renounce their Communist Party membership. They have done very well.
During these seven years of Fa-rectification I always remember Master's words from Zhuan Falun:
"If you are a true practitioner, our Falun will safeguard you. I am rooted in the universe. If anyone can harm you, he or she would be able to harm me. Put simply, that person would be able to harm this universe." ("Lecture One" in Zhuan Falun)
Master also said,
"If you truly follow the righteous way in cultivation practice, nobody will dare to do something to you at will. Besides, you have the protection of my fashen, and you will not be in any danger." ("Lecture Three" in Zhuan Falun)
I thought to myself that even if Master is not by my side, there are Master's Fashen and many righteous gods protecting me all the time. Master said, "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." ("Lecture One" in Zhuan Falun)
I will thus do the three things Master requires and ignore any kind of formality set by others. Regardless of what happens, I will follow Master's requirements. I am determined not to let Master down, not to let any sentient beings down, and not to let myself down.
Next I would like to share my truth clarifying experiences. When you see that you are in danger, as long as you have righteous thoughts, nothing bad will happen to you. Once I had gone to a condominium with my six-year-old granddaughter to distribute flyers. When we went upstairs nothing much happened, but when we came down, I missed a step and fell. The same thing happened to my granddaughter. She cried and said, "Granny, my leg is broken." I said, "Master is looking after us. Nobody else is worthy of taking charge. With righteous thoughts we will suppress the evil. We must recite, 'Falun Dafa is good.' Only what my Master says counts. Only what we Falun Dafa practitioners say counts. Nobody else can interfere." My granddaughter's leg then no longer hurt. We continued to distribute the flyers and went home after we finished.
On another occasion, during the daytime in the summer, I carried with me Dafa leaflets and little booklets to distribute in the residential area. I checked the surroundings and confirmed that there was no one around. A window of the house was open, so I tossed the little booklet onto the stove-top. Suddenly a man appeared and grabbed the little booklet. I went up to grab it from him. Each of us held half the booklet. He shouted, "You are Falun Gong!" I told him, "Brother, please do not shout. Your meeting me today is a predestined relationship." He did not heed my advice. A group of people arrived, having heard his shouts. They looked on and did nothing. Then the owner of the house arrived. She hit the man and scolded him, "What's so bad about Falun Gong? They put a booklet into my house. I am happy. It is not your house! It is none of your business." The man was speechless. I grabbed the booklet from him and walked away.
Another time my husband and I clarified the truth on a bus. I took a little booklet and said I had found it. I said that after I read it I realized that Falun Gong is different from what was depicted on television. A man in his 40s took the booklet and looked it over. Another man in his 40s next to him saw that it was a booklet clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. He started to slander Master and said, "I think you practice Falun Gong." I replied in the affirmative, that the booklet was well written, and that that was the reason I wanted to show it to the both of you.
The man said, "You picked up another booklet?" I said, Not only can one pick up a booklet in China, there are also booklets available overseas." The man changed his demeanor and said, "You are a Falun Gong practitioner. I will call the police to arrest you." I started to send forth righteous thoughts, "You are not worthy. What my Master says counts. You are nothing." I had no fear in my heart. I waited for the person to finish reading the booklet and return it to me. Then I got off the bus.
I have experienced many incidents like this. I will not list them one by one. I am just trying to let other practitioners know the depth of faith I have in Master. Even though I have full confidence and faith in Master, I think I am still far off from Master's requirements. I will continue to be diligent.
