Cultivation Leads to a Pure Heart
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. He Jubi is a mold technician, is very healthy and it is hard to tell that he is nearly 60 years old. After reading Zhuan Falun in 1997, he began to cultivate Falun Gong. According to Mr. He, during the past 12 years of his cultivation, in addition to letting go of bad habits, the most important thing for him was that his heart became pure.
When Mr. He went to Hong Kong to visit family, he received a copy of Zhuan Falun from his brother. Mr. He said, "After reading the book once, I knew that this is what I want." He said Zhuan Falun answered many of his questions about life. After returning to Canada, he continued to read the book and learned the exercises by following along with a videotape.
Benefiting both mind and body, remaining undisturbed by lies
After he began to cultivate, Mr. He experienced many changes in his actions and thoughts. He used to enjoy eating meat as well as green onions, ginger and garlic. After cultivation, however, all those habits were gone before he even realized it.
Mr. He Jubi said, "I have been drinking for more than 20 years. That stopped after reading Zhuan Falun." During the past 12 years of cultivation, he has been very healthy and did not need to see any doctors or take medicine.
After the CCP began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, Mr. He was confused for a while. He said he cultivated by reading Zhuan Falun and never saw Teacher in person. Later, he became clear, "I have been cultivating for so many years and Teacher never asked for money from me. Other people said I became a better person. And I could feel the change myself. In the past, I felt frustrated when encountering conflicts, now I have become more and more relaxed."
Mr. He said, "I have a colleague from Shanghai. He told me he has been observing me and no longer believes the CCP's propaganda. From my behavior and how I handled conflicts, he came to know Falun Gong is good."
Mr. He's boss is also from mainland China and he agreed that Mr. He could place a poster at the workplace, which exposed the persecution of Falun Gong.
Feeling relaxed after letting go of attachments
Mr. He Jubi's job is to produce molds for automobile parts. Because there are few job opportunities in this field in recent years, he went to Mississauga, where he works at a place that produces molds for plastics. After having been working in large companies for more than 20 years, he did not feel very comfortable at the beginning.
The new company did not have so many requirements, but the deadlines are often much shorter. Mr. He said, "Many of the good habits I had accumulated in the past 20 years cannot work out here." For example, sometimes he worked on something that was near completion and he only needed 10 more minutes. However, his supervisor asked him to disassemble the equipment and start to set up for something else.
He said, "As a practitioner, I did not argue with him. Still I felt bad in my heart thinking, 'Why not let me finish that?' I wasted a lot of time, and things were not like this in my previous job."
After this happened several times, Mr. He was no longer bothered by it. Interestingly, since then his supervisor never asked him to stop on something in the middle and start doing something else. When giving him new assignments, the supervisor checked the status of the current assignment to see how much time is needed for completion.
Mr. He said, "I know that these tribulations were simply a part of my cultivation that occurred at my workplace. After letting go of these attachments, my conflicts disappeared naturally." He continued, "I felt calm handling the conflicts. When encountering conflicts again, I simply remained calm and in the current situation, I am no longer attached to what happens next."
Mr. He said, "I have been cultivating for 12 years, and never needed to see doctors or take medicine. He is very grateful for being able to practice Falun Gong.
