Learning To Use a Computer Was the Turning Point in My Truth Clarification
(Clearwisdom.net) I remember my initial reasons for leaving my previous religion to learn Falun Dafa was that I had too many health problems. I wanted only to get rid of sicknesses and to keep fit. I had various medical insurances from an "A" card to a "J" card, but since practicing Falun Dafa, I haven't needed them at all. My cultivation process has gone from "With motive" to "Motiveless." There aren't enough words to express my gratitude to our benevolent Teacher for helping me to gradually get rid of attachments to fame, profit, and affection, and raising me out of hell.
Learning to use a computer was the turning point in my truth clarification. I am sincerely grateful to a few fellow practitioners for their efforts and careful guidance that enabled me to go from being afraid of the computer to enjoying it. As I recall, when the Assistant at my practice site told me it was easy to use a computer to send truth-clarification materials, I bought one without hesitation. However, I let it sit idle for a few months without trying it, because I really didn't know how to use it.
So, I made up my mind to take a computer class before the Chinese New Year. In the class, not only did I not understand what the instructor was talking about, but also the writing on the blackboard was not clear to me. What was a firewall? I wasn't able to differentiate the right click from the left click on the mouse. And my typing was very slow. Fellow practitioners talked about the necessity of setting up email and needing to know how to send and receive emails. My daughter, who was concerned about my poor memory, helped me setup a mailbox that was easy to remember.
During that period of time, as long as I sat in front of the computer, I'd be so tense that I perspired a great deal. I told myself, where there's a will, there's a way. I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner and I want to do this sacred and important thing, clarifying the truth-about Falun Dafa. Whenever I came across things I didn't understand, I wrote them down one by one, then, I asked fellow practitioners for help. I believed, "As long as I work hard, I will succeed and my success will save people and benefit myself."
Utilizing a computer for truth clarification enables me to get in touch with a lot of people in Mainland China. So, I must manage my time well, get on the Internet at midnight and work on it while eating, and sometimes doing laundry. When doing things with heart, everything adds up and nothing is too difficult.
Fellow practitioners, please correct me if I'm wrong.
