Believe in Master and Dafa on the Path to Divinity
(Clearwisdom.net) On the cultivation path of Fa-rectification, I will follow Master at all times. This is my cultivation experience--a report for Master--which I would like to share with my fellow practitioners.
Studying the Fa well is the bridge that enables us reach divinity
Master taught us in "To the Australia Fa Conference":
"In order for Dafa disciples to walk their paths well and do the three things well, they must study the Fa well and take Fa-study seriously."... "That is because the Fa is the foundation; it is what's fundamental for Dafa disciples; it is what ensures everything; and it is the avenue by which a human being journeys toward godhood."
No matter how busy, tired and sleepy I was, I would squeeze time to calm my heart to study the Fa and memorize the Fa. When I studied the Fa, I sat in the double-crossed legs lotus position, held Dafa books in both hands, and studied and memorized the Fa. I quietly read each and every word. Sometimes, as I studied, I felt as if all my pores were open, sending out energy; my entire body felt as if it was empty. This wonderful experience is hard to describe with words.
One day, after coming back from work, I felt extremely tired. As soon as I picked up the book I felt sleepy. Then I remembered what Master said:
"When divine thinking and a person's righteous thoughts gain the upper hand, he heads toward godhood." (Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005)
I told myself: "As a Dafa practitioner, if I do not study the Fa well, how will I do the three things well?" When I found my attachment to leisure and let it go, my heart felt bright immediately and the demon of drowsiness disappeared.
In addition to group Fa study every Friday, I study the Fa myself six to seven times a week and memorize the Fa three times a week. I listen to Minghui radio which broadcasts the exercise music in the morning. I truly understand that the more I study the Fa, the quicker, the safer, and smoother I am able to take care of my duties.
Clarifying the truth and persuading people to quit CCP organizations
As the the manager of a private business, I used the standard of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" to manage the company and to treat the staff. I memorized Master's words:
"Only by having people practice a righteous way can there be true salvation of all beings."(Zhuan Falun, 2000 translation version)
Eight of the employees began to practice cultivation. I gave each of them an MP3 of the lectures, and created a cultivation environment. We study the Fa, exercise and exchange experiences together. They all persuaded their family members to withdraw from CCP organizations. They also participate in clarifying the truth and distributing truth-clarification materials. My two sisters-in-law also began practicing cultivation and we do Fa rectification activities together.
My business was expanding and needed more room. There were 100 people working on the construction project. I went to clarify the truth to the workers face-to-face and persuaded them to withdraw from the CCP. I gave them each dozens of truth-clarification materials and asked them to share them with their relatives. They were very happy to receive these materials.
Around "April 25" this year, someone told my family: "The plainclothes police have been monitoring your home for three to four months. A vehicle from the Public Security Bureau and Surveillance faces your building every day, and several secret agencies have stated that they will visit certain families." I calmed down and looked inward and discovered the attachment of showing off, and the attachment of doing things. Previously, several fellow practitioners who provided truth-clarification materials had taken time off to visit family for the New Year, and materials became scarce. I concentrated on putting out truth- clarification materials whenever I had time and ignored Fa study.
I moved the machine to a different place, connected all the necessary equipment, and the material center now is in running order again. I noticed sometimes when I printed truth clarification material the attachment of fear showed up--Was a surveillance car passing by? My heart was pounding. Whenever I'm in that situation, I recite "What's to Fear" (Hongyin II) over and over. I remind myself, "What am I afraid of? I am a Dafa disciple in the Fa-rectification period. I am doing the most righteous thing--saving people. I have Master and Dafa, so what could I fear?" Immediately, the substance of fear dissolves and my thoughts elevate on the basis of the Fa.
As the anniversary of the beginning of the persecution, July 20, approached, many Dafa practitioners in our city were harassed, kidnapped and their homes raided. One practitioner told me: "Clean up your place and hide for a while. Practitioner A was kidnapped." I replied: "We should do what Master asked, and completely negate the old forces. One righteous thought will subdue all the evil." I then began sending forth-righteous thoughts.
After the fellow practitioner left, I picked up Master's recent article which was "In Fa- Rectification Your Thoughts Have to be Righteous, Not Human" and read:
"My Dafa disciples who have strong human thoughts: the path I'm leading you down heads toward godhood, yet some students just tenaciously cling to human notions. What could human beings possibly do to gods? If there were no outside factors, would humans dare to do anything to gods?"
Master's teaching boosted my confidence and I realized that the work of Fa rectification should not stop. I continued as usual doing the things that Dafa disciples should be doing.
The next day was July 20. After I sent forth righteous thoughts in the morning, a thought popped up, "I should study the Fa at home today instead of going out." I was immediately aware that it was the evil interference, and I should go out to clarify the truth and save people. So I took copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other materials and set out to clarify the truth. I passed out truth-clarification materials and persuaded individuals to withdraw from the CCP. On my way, I helped six people to quit the CCP within one hour. I felt as if I was floating on my way back home. I knew Master was encouraging me.
Meeting the needs of Fa-rectification, elevating as a group
While following the progress of Fa-rectification, I realized the necessity and importance of setting up a truth-clarification material center. It is very difficult to get enough truth-clarification materials to meet the demand. I used my own savings to buy two sets of machines and set up two materials production centers. I was now able to provide as much as needed, even to other centers. I became a particle of the Dafa group doing what I should to accommodate the needs of Fa-rectification. Sometimes, when I buy supplies, my human heart of being attached to my money surfaces, but then I'm able to let go of it.
Master does not want to leave behind any of his disciples. With this in mind, I went to visit the families of fellow practitioners who had been held in long-term labor camps. We studied the Fa together, exercised and exchanged experiences. I gave them MP3s and VCDs, and helped create a cultivation environment for them.
My business is getting bigger. I understand that Master has arranged all of this. When there is a need in Fa-rectification, I am able to contribute as much as I can. This is what I should do.
I obtained Dafa in October 1995. During my twelve years of cultivation, I went to Beijing twice to appeal for Dafa. I was arrested, detained, and held in brainwashing centers. My home was raided, and I was followed and monitored. No matter what I come across, I have never been shaken in my firm belief in Dafa and Master. It is Master who protected and guided me to safely travel my cultivation path all along the way.
