The Cultivation Experiences of a Middle School Student in Sichuan Province
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a middle school student who has been practicing Falun Dafa for many years. I have been telling every friend, classmate, and teacher of mine, as well as everyone I know or do not know, about Dafa's miraculous effects.
Because my whole family believes in and practices Dafa, we are all full of energy and healthy, and live a happy life that everyday people would love to have but cannot. As a result, many people admire us.
I recall that we all used to be unhealthy before we began practicing Dafa. When we had a good harvest season, all the money we earned went to the purchase of medicines. My mother used to have various kinds of illnesses, and her eyes were often full of tears when she was preparing the Chinese medicine that was bought with our very limited savings. In this difficult situation, Mom was introduced to and began to practice Falun Dafa. Since then, she has become healthier and healthier and all of her illnesses disappeared very quickly.
Witnessing my bony and sickly mother glowing with health and how she no longer had any medicinal expenses, my family members were pleasantly surprised. They told many people about Dafa's spectacular effects. I too began to witness the importance of Falun Dafa in our family life and for each of us. I was eager to study the Fa, kept in mind Teacher's lectures in Zhuan Falun, and disciplined myself in accordance with the Fa.
I used to make trouble with other students at school. After I started to practice Falun Dafa, I learned that this would make me lose my virtue. Teacher taught us to guard our virtue as practitioners, so I gradually learned to forgive others with a benevolent heart, to keep the interests of others in mind in all situations, and to look for causes within myself when conflicts occurred. I learned how to look at an issue from a different angle: "We say that when youre handling a disagreement, if you can take a step back youll see things in a whole new light." (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun) I truly experienced the beauty of Forbearance.
I was often frustrated during the course of my study. Whenever this happened, I recalled Teacher's teaching, "Its hard to do, but you can do it." (Zhuan Falun) No matter how difficult it is, once one overcomes it, one will make progress. There is nothing that can deter practitioners! Again and again, I overcame the difficulties, and I was determined to improve myself in this most complicated environment. As the saying goes, the environment helps to shape a person. This is also the merit of the Chinese culture.
Take a few recent cases as examples. A few months ago, we were facing midterm exams. All of my classmates strive hard to get ideal grades. During that time, I witnessed the intense competition among my classmates. Under pressure from their teachers, they competed fiercely and as a result were exhausted. Many of them took naps during the morning and night self-study periods. Some even had health problems due to, I believe, the exhaustion.
One of my roommates went to bed very early and woke up late every day, but he was still tired. In contrast, thanks to Falun Dafa, I was full of energy and I did not feel anything different, despite the unusually heavy workload. During a routine health exam, most of my classmates had lost weight, but my weight didn't change much.
Another roommate of mine often asked me, "Why do you look very energetic and healthy, while we often fall sick?" They certainly didn't know that I sat down to meditate for ten to fifteen minutes every night after the lights went out. Doing this fifth exercise Strengthening Divine Powersmy fatigue from the daily work disappeared. In as little as ten minutes I would be recharged and strengthened, and the bad stuff in my body was eliminated. That was my personal experience.
There was a strange mark between my thumb and my index finger, which did not spread. Disgusted, I tried to cut it out every day. Often it bled after I cut it. The more I cut it, the larger it became. As Teacher said, "When something reaches the extreme it reverses." I stopped noticing it and let go of this attachment. Instead, I focused on studying the Fa. Soon after, the mark disappeared and my skin was normal.
My nose used to bleed very easily. It bled when it was even slightly injured. It bled even if I picked my nose lightly. When it did, the blood would gush out. This was certainly abnormal. After I began to practice Dafa, I understood that this was the result of my karma. I was determined to practice Dafa. As I practiced, Teacher took away my karma bit by a bit, and my nose stopped bleeding so easily.
Once I was carrying a long ladder after I finished picking plums. Since I did not have the key to the house, I propped the ladder against the wall and sat on it, waiting for Mom to come back. It was fine at first, but suddenly the ladder fell down and I landed on a log next to the ladder. My hip really hurt and I felt dizzy, as if I were losing consciousness. I tried hard to hold myself up. Leaning against the wall, I tried to enter my home. Sitting in the room where Teacher's portrait was hanging, I called to Teacher and silently chanted, "Falun Dafa is good! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" I suddenly began to warm up while I broke out in a cold sweat. My clothes were soaked. My hands were pale, numb, and cold. I looked awful. In a few moments, I gradually revived, and my body recovered, except that my hip still hurt a bit. The pain disappeared a few days later, though.
Once again I personally experienced the miracle of Dafa. Deep in my heart, I knew it was because of Teacher's grand compassion. Teacher has arranged my life and I thank Teacher for His saving of sentient beings.
I am writing about my personal experience to advise all my classmates, teachers, and friends who are deceived by the CCP's slander: Please know that "Falun Dafa is good! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" The boundless Dafa will then bring you the same good fortune. With Buddha's infinite grace in Falun Dafa, the day of Heaven and Earth's celebration is bound to come.
