I Am Grateful to Teacher for His Compassionate Care and Hints
(Clearwisdom.net) When sites for producing truth-clarification materials sprang up everywhere and blossomed all over the place, I also set up a Falun Dafa materials production site in my home.
In the beginning I did not do anything because I was over 60 years old and knew nothing about computers. Though I thought about producing some truth-clarification materials, I was afraid that I would be unable to learn the necessary skills, so I only did some coordination work.
Recently, several printing sites were destroyed at the same time and several fellow practitioners in charge of the materials were arrested. It was a tremendous loss, and practitioners would have been unable to receive those materials for quite some time. The thought of establishing a materials production site occurred to me again. Not long afterward, a practitioner sent me a notebook computer and taught me how to browse the Internet and how to print materials, and a materials site was established.
A few days later, Teacher published the new article "To the Australia Fa Conference." Fellow practitioners helped me to set up my site, and I learned how to print materials. We had Fa study in the afternoons, and I noticed I was short by a few copies. I printed more, but the print was blurred. What could I do? The time for Fa study was approaching and we could not delay the study. In desperation I asked, "Teacher, what shall I do?" Almost immediately I noticed that the printer produced very clear copies of the new article. It was really a miracle! Apparently Teacher was helping me. Thank you, Teacher!
Thereafter, Teacher often gave me hints during my dreams. For example, when I came across some problems printing truth-clarification materials that I had downloaded from the Internet, the next morning I would be able to solve the problem.
When I first learned from fellow practitioners how to print the materials, I usually jotted down a few notes and then followed my notes as I worked. I was learning as I practiced. One day I wanted to download and print an article that exposed local police officers who searched and arrested practitioners and sabotaged printing sites, but I couldn't do it. No matter how I tried, it simply did not work, and I became worried and anxious. Even when I sent forth righteous thoughts it failed to work. I suddenly realized that feeling of being worried or anxious was an attachment. We are cultivating during the Fa-rectification period and it is not just pure Falun Dafa work. I thought of Teacher's Fa lecture "Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)" from Essentials for Further Advancement II, "Just by having your heart unaffected you will be able to handle all situations."
Once I calmed down, I was able to successfully download the article. However, the print quality was not good. I thought maybe the print nozzles were blocked. I remembered that the practitioner who taught me computer skills mentioned that when the print is blurred I needed to clean the nozzles. There was a normal cleaning process and a deep cleaning process. I checked my notes but failed to find the page where it stated how to do this maintenance. I tried several times to find the instructions but without success. Finally I found the page that described a method no one had taught me before and was able to finish printing successfully. This was another example of Dafa displaying its invincible might. With my limited knowledge of computers, it would have been impossible to find the information in such a short time.
The incident taught me a lesson. No matter what we do, as long as we maintain righteous thoughts and righteous actions, Dafa will display its invincible might.
After a short time, I have learned to browse the Internet and print truth-clarification materials by myself. Because I wanted to learn more about technology, I asked fellow practitioners whenever problems arose. One day when I had just turned on the computer, someone came to the door. I did not shut down the computer properly and after the visitor left I turned the computer on again. Then I noticed a line of words appearing on the computer, "Another computer is accessing your computer." I did not know what had happened. I asked another practitioner who had good computer knowledge. After she checked my computer she told me that there was a "trojan" in my computer. I did not know what that meant. She explained that it was like someone else had made a key to my house so that that person could enter my house any time without my knowledge. When I asked how to fix the problem, the practitioner told me that I needed to reinstall the entire system. After I reinstalled it, I was unable to browse the Internet that evening, so I planned to ask that practitioner for advice the following day. That night Teacher gave me a hint: "Even if someone were to grasp all of mankind's knowledge, he would still remain an everyday person." ("What Is Wisdom?" from Essentials for Further Advancement)
I realized that I was using human notions to look at this issue. Looking inward, I found that I always wanted to learn more about technology and attributed too much importance to technology. Wasn't this an attachment? Learning that other people could create a key and open "my door" I developed a mentality of fear. The evil forces menacingly watch for our loopholes, so after enlightening on this issue, I began to send forth righteous thoughts to disintegrate the evil forces and cleanse myself. At that time one sentence appeared in my mind: "After cleansing, you just do what you need to do." Then everything was back to normal.
"In the several years of your cultivation, I have not only borne an incredibly great deal for you, but also, along with this, constantly given you hints for your improvement, looked after you for your safety, and settled the debts that you owed at different levels so that you can reach Consummation--these aren't things that just anyone can do, and neither can they be done for everyday people. It's just that these people are too irrational and don't know to treasure Dafa and the opportunity to practice cultivation." ("Drive Out Interference" from Essentials for Further Advancement)
My experiences printing truth-clarification materials over the past two months have led me to some solid enlightenment. I enlightened that whenever our xinxing fails to meet Dafa's standard, we will encounter problems. Therefore, we must always measure our every thought with the Fa and remind ourselves that we are Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples. We must live up to the expectations of Teacher's painstaking effort to save us. I will return to my original home with Master when I attain enlightenment.
