Cultivating Well And Saving More Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) I'm a veteran practitioner. Not long after I started the practice, all the illnesses that had bothered me for years disappeared and I became healthy and happy. I felt the Falun turning when doing the exercises. My Celestial Eye opened and I saw the existence of Falun and other dimensions. I felt that Falun Gong is really good. But since I did not understand the Fa, I did not believe in Teacher firmly. My practice stopped for a month at the onset of the persecution.
At the beginning, my legs were stiff and they hurt a lot during the sitting meditation. So, I was doing more of the standing exercises. And I was not diligent in the Fa study. One night I had a dream. I saw several practitioners doing the sitting meditation. One morning, Teacher's voice said, "Cultivating in Falun Dafa to the End." I was touched. I knew Teacher was giving me hints. Teacher is so merciful and did not give up on me, instead, Teacher is always watching and protecting me. I returned to my cultivation.
My husband stopped to practice Falun Gong out of fear and he tried to stop me too. I tried to hide from him when I was distributing materials that spoke of the practice and the persecution. When he found out he said, "If you are caught I will divorce you." I said firmly: "That's ok." He saw I was so firm and so did not bother me anymore.
One day in a dream I saw a big Buddha in the sky. He disappeared and came back. I was suddenly enlightened and I knew every word from Teacher is true. I decided to cultivate in Falun Dafa to the end. Later in my dreams I saw many times Buddha, dragons, phoenix, and golden paths in heaven.
Before practicing Falun Dafa, if I was given more change when shopping, I would not return the money. Now, the few times that sellers have given me 5 or 10 Yuan extra, I always returned it to them. They said, "There are not many people like you in today's time." I told them: "I practice Falun Dafa. Our Teacher told us not to be greedy for profit and be a good person."
During truth clarification, I have met all types of people. Once a young man said to me: "Don't talk anymore. The police station is in front of you. Aren't you afraid I will report you? Leave now." He left before I could say another word. At another time, I was clarifying the truth to two high school students. One of them said: "You practice Falun Gong." I said, "Falun Gong is saving people." They stood up and left. On leaving they said, "Shame on you, old lady. I will get the police to arrest you." I felt great pity for them.
Once I was talking to people about Falun Gong in a public park. One middle-aged man said he never joined any communist party related organization and he agrees with Dafa. I handed him a pamphlet. He said: You are not afraid if I call police? I told him that I was not. He took his cell phone and said "hey". I stopped and told him: "You will have to pay for it if you really do that!" He smiled. I saw him next day at the same place. He nodded to me as soon as he saw me, and gave a thumbs up: "Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is good." I was very happy, "You will have a wonderful future."
Most of my family members and relatives have resigned from the communist party and its associated organizations. There are a few who have not. I think maybe it's not time yet. Teacher will give them more chances. Some people quit when I told them the second time. I will continue to tell them until they are all saved.
Every day I do exercises, send forth righteous thoughts and do the three things. I will continue to study the Fa, keep righteous thoughts and righteous acts, cultivate myself well, save more sentient beings, and fulfill the duty we promised to fulfill during historical times.
