Placing More Emphasis on Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts
My husband and I are both Falun Dafa practitioners. After returning home one day, at the precise moment reserved for sending forth righteous thoughts, we discovered that we had lost our keys. I thought it would be better to look for the keys first and to postpone sending forth righteous thoughts a little. However, we never did find our keys, even after searching for several hours, and we finally had to open the door with a saw.
Several months went by and the same thing happened again: we discovered we had lost our keys at the time we needed to send forth righteous thoughts. This time we changed our approach and gave first priority to sending forth righteous thoughts.
After I finished sending forth righteous thoughts, I ran into an old man and told him about my lost key. He said that he had seen a young fellow from the neighborhood pick up a key. I found the fellow in question and it turned out that he had, indeed, found my key. At that time, I simply said a few words of gratitude but forgot to explain the truth about Falun Gong to him. After returning home and telling my husband about this incident, he quickly took a truth-clarification bookmark to the young fellow's family and explained to them the truth about Falun Dafa. Each of them took a look at the card, smiled, and indicated that they would preserve the card carefully and treasure it.
We learned from this experience that although we had practiced for nearly ten years already, there were still shortcomings in the way we treated the details of our cultivation. We also became aware that we must be more diligent, follow closely Master's Fa-rectification process, help Master rectify the Fa, save all living beings and return home with Master upon consummation.
Lost Bicycle Recovered
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shandong
In April 2002, I went to a remote area to promote the Fa. Before getting on the bus I chained my bicycle to the front of the bus station. I was later arrested in the remote area after someone reported me to the police. After I was deported back to the local police department, I strengthened my righteous thoughts, firmly resisted the arrangements of the old forces and left no excuses for being persecuted. With the help of Master's merciful protection, I managed to break away and was taken home by my family members.
After some time, I realized that my bicycle was still chained to the station. I quickly went there to look for my bicycle but it had disappeared. I asked many people in the surrounding area but nobody had seen my bicycle. Everybody thought that I would never retrieve my bicycle since it had been gone for such a long time.
Then, three months later, an amazing thing happened. The bicycle appeared, unchanged, in the original location! I took out my key to open the lock and it opened with a resounding click. I took my bicycle home.
Everybody was very surprised, and I was extremely excited in my heart. I felt incomparable happiness because, as a Dafa disciple, Master is by my side and protecting me at every moment.
