A Night of Recurring Miracles
This is an incident from my cultivation practice.
The time was October 2001, and it was also one of the worst periods of the brutal persecution. Three practitioners and I went to their hometowns to distribute truth clarification materials. Their hometowns were far away in a mountainous area and the roads were rough. There was no flat ground in the villages and there were slippery rocks everywhere. It was a truly mountainous region.
We went to one of their relatives that afternoon. When we were ready to leave that evening, we noticed that the plastic bags filled with the truth-clarification materials were not sealed tightly. To prevent the materials from getting wet, we had to re-seal the bags and this delayed us for over two hours.
Around 10:00 p.m. that night, we finally left and walked along the rugged mountain road with no moonlight and many uneven steps. Suddenly one practitioner and I saw the wild chrysanthemums sparkling with different colored lights. We immediately realized that Master was encouraging us and was right beside us. All feelings of fear and tiredness disappeared.
We distributed the materials to every house in all the villages we passed, but we became lost, in the middle of nowhere, sometime after midnight. I thought to myself that it would be nice if someone would pass by just then. Just then a motorcycle came down the road. The rider helped us to get to the next village, where we distributed all the rest of our materials. But we became lost again around 2:00 a.m. when we left the village. I wondered if anyone would be out so late. I conjoined my hands to ask Master for help. Again, two people came along and pointed us in the right direction. They commented to each other, "We don't know why, but we just wanted to come out for a walk."
Around 3:00 a.m., we came to a three-way intersection but didn't know which way to go. We picked one direction and walked to the next village in the dark. We were still lost and didn't know what to do other than ask for help from Master again. Another miracle happened. A person came and told us to go back to the intersection and which road to take to get home.
With Master's protection along the way, we arrived home before 6:00 a.m. We all truly felt that Master was with us. Actually, every step along our cultivation path is like learning to walk with Master's careful protection. Let's treasure this opportunity that only comes once in every ten thousand years and walk our paths righteously.
Righteous Thoughts Will Show Mighty Power As long As We Keep the Fa in Mind
In July this year, I went out of town to help some friends quit the evil communist party and its affiliates. When I was on the bus, the traffic was really bad. The driver said that it would take a long time to get to our destination and if any passengers could not bear it they could get off the bus. A lot of passengers left. I still had a long way to go. Since my family is not rich, I could not afford to take a taxi, so I stayed on the bus.
But I thought about the situation again. Master told us in "Expounding on the Fa" in Essentials for Further Advancement:
"You should also be clear that 'natural' does not exist, and 'the inevitable' has reasons behind it."
This situation only affected ordinary people and not practitioners. Practitioners' situations are for saving sentient beings, and I could not waste so much time on the bus. So I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference. The bus started moving in less than a minute, but the traffic in the other direction remained seriously conjested for a really long time. When I arrived at my destination, I was easily able to talk my friend's family into quitting the communist party and its affiliates. This could only be done with Master's protection.
"Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." (From Zhuan Falun)
As long as we keep the Fa and the sentient beings in our minds, the beauty of Dafa will shine through us, and we will accomplish our Fa-rectification work and save sentient beings. My friend's whole family supported Dafa firmly.
