The Beauty and Miracle I Experienced after Practicing Falun Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) For many years, Minghui Weekly and Zhengjian Weekly have been our best friends in cultivation practice. Whenever we read an edition, it was like attending a Fa conference. It made practitioners in our local area regret not being able to hold group Fa study. For a while, we felt that there was something missing in our cultivation. I was always in the audience. I wondered why I could not get rid of the human mindset of considering myself to be "unintelligent and not able to write anything well." I wanted to write an article about my cultivation, to share with Teacher and practitioners my experiences of Dafa's beauty.
I obtained the Fa in 1997. One event happened that year in November. Before, I used to like to eat hot peppers. However, one day after finishing cooking hot pepper oil, I poured it into a bowl inattentively, and the bowl slipped out of my hands and hot pepper oil splashed all my hands. Immediately, blisters covered my palms and fingers. It was as though the hot pepper oil burned straight through the flesh. It was burning hot and it was difficult to bear the pain. I endured the pain and opened Zhuan Falun and began reading. I studied the Fa until midnight, and the pain in my hand subsided. Over the next few days, I continued with my Fa study. About two weeks later, the skin of my palm began to recover. Later on, new skin formed, smooth and shiny, without any scarring at all. I understood that this test was for me to get rid of my attachment of eating hot peppers. In the meantime, a large amount of karma was eliminated.
Later on, I encountered the process of eliminating thought karma. With the help of fellow practitioners surrounding me and sending forth righteous thoughts for several days, finally the thought karma was eliminated. Through the process of eliminating my thought karma, I firmly understood that Dafa is a righteous Fa. Every word of it is true. As long as I follow the Fa to do things, my cultivation level will be upgraded.
When we were more diligent in cultivation, the wicked Communist Party supported the old forces, and some evil base people began the persecution of Dafa and Dafa practitioners. Suddenly the persecution of Falun Gong began all over the country. Many fellow practitioners went to Beijing to safeguard and validate Dafa. I also felt the persecution was unjustified, so I packed a banner worded, "Falun Dafa is good," and headed to Beijing. At that time, there was a group of foreigners visiting the Golden Water Bridge. I rushed over and stood among them and then opened the banner and spoke loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" three times. In the difficult environment, I wanted to let people know that the wicked Party had failed to win people's support and that evil cannot stop the righteousness of Dafa. At that moment, two police officers were standing at a distance of less than ten meters from me. It seemed that they did not hear what I said, and did not notice anything. I knew that it was Dafa's mighty virtue that restrained the evil.
After arriving home, I created banners reading "Falun Dafa is good" on red paper. I posted the banners on walls and telephone poles in surrounding cities. I used this method to tell ordinary people that Dafa practitioners' beliefs are indestructible.
Following Teacher's Fa rectification process to let more people to learn the truth about Dafa, for the past several years I have ridden my bicycle several times a month to nearby countrysides and townships to distribute Dafa truth-clarification materials. Each time, I carried over three hundred copies. I left in the evening and returned home around dawn. Under the protection of Teacher, everything went smoothly every time. Beginning in 2006, I and another fellow practitioner rode a motorcycle to distribute truth-clarification materials. We traveled about 200 miles each time. We coordinated well with each other. The next morning several families saw our truth-clarification materials.
This May, my spouse and I went to our hometown. We clarified the truth to our relatives and friends. We persuaded people to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations, and many of them did withdraw. Some even withdrew from the CCP in front of the village Party secretary. My elder sister-in-law, who is over 80 years old, had leukemia. The hospital would not admit her, and she could not eat or drink anything. She was bedridden, waiting to die. Her family members had already prepared everything to be used after her death. When we visited her and told her that Dafa could save her, she was moved to tears. She seemed to be mentally clear. We then said the words, "Falun Dafa is good" into her ears several times. I then asked her whether she could remember those words. She nodded her head and smiled. My spouse then put a bookmark near her pajamas and told her to say "Falun Dafa is good" every day. Three days after we left her, we called for an update on her condition. Her daughter smiled and said, "It is really a miracle. Now she can eat and drink. She can even get out of bed and wash vegetables. She has totally recovered and become a normal person." Her daughter did not believe in Falun Gong before. When she saw that her mother recovered from the brink of death, she could not help but believe in Dafa's beauty and grace.
