The Supernatural Powers of Dafa Manifest When Cultivating Diligently
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner living in the countryside. I farm and make honeycomb coal briquettes to support my family. Because my wife is sick with cerebral hemorrhage sequela, I also need to wash the clothes, cook, and take care of her every day, in addition to doing my work. Sometimes I am too busy and only have time for one meal a day, but I always have Dafa in my mind and I firmly remember Master's words:
“No matter how difficult your environment is, no matter how busy you get, you cannot forget to study the Fa. You must study the Fa, because it is the absolute, most fundamental guarantee of your improvement.” (“Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.”)
I do not have time to study the “Fa” and practice the exercises during the day, so I read and practice at night. I only sleep for three to four hours each day. During the past eight years, from 1998 to 2006, a day has never passed without my studying the Fa and practicing the exercises. Even during the two days when my mother was ill and passed away, I remembered to study the Fa. I have boundless energy and as long as I study the Fa and practice the exercises, fatigue and hardships don't affect me. The pure, righteous, harmonious, magnificent and compassionate energy field of Master's Fa harmonizes me and purifies my mind. I can feel that Master stays with me, guarding and protecting me constantly. I feel I am the happiest person in the world.
The Magnificence of Dafa Astounds Ordinary People
In early November 2000, my feet got caught under the wheels of a three-horse wagon carrying one thousand and eight hundred coal briquettes. They were crushed instantly with a sharp pain and they swelled up like steamed buns. The people around me were all scared. My first thought was, “I am a disciple of Master Li and Master will protect me, so I will be fine.” That evening when I practiced the meditation, the pain was so excruciating that beads of sweat poured down my face, but I remembered what Master said in “Zhuan Falun,” “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” I repeatedly recited this and was able to sit for forty-five minutes. After I put my feet down, they no longer felt so painful and my whole body felt much lighter. The next day, I felt fine and went to work as usual. People asked me, “Are you all right?” I said, “I feel fine. I practice Falun Dafa and I have Master to protect me.” They all felt it was inexplicable. I personally experienced that as long as we firmly believe in Master and Dafa, there is no test that we cannot pass.
One day in winter 2004, at 3:00 a.m., I went to a nearby mountain with two drivers to haul coal. When we arrived at the mountain, it was 9:00 a.m. and the weather suddenly turned bad. A strong northwest wind picked up with heavy snow and the temperature dropped to -15 degrees Celcius (5 degrees Fahrenheit). Our diesel truck didn't have anti-freeze and the engine died out after a short while. We left the truck to find some wood to burn to warm up the engine. The two drivers had cotton-padded jackets, trousers and shoes on, but I had only thin clothes. They were still very cold and asked me, “Do you feel cold?” I said, “I practice Falun Dafa, so I don't feel cold.” After we walked for a while, they asked me again, “Why don't you feel cold?” I said, “I practice Falun Dafa and I have Master to protect me.”
On our way back, it was late into the evening and the temperature had dropped even lower. They looked at me in astonishment, “Do you really not feel cold?” I said, “I don't feel cold.” With Master's compassionate protection, we were able to get the truck going and carried the coal back home by 4:00 a.m. the next day.
During the drive, I “clarified the facts” about Falun Gong to the drivers and talked about withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. Because they had witnessed the supernormal power of Dafa from me first hand, they believed me without a doubt and immediately agreed to withdraw from the CCP.
Clarifying the Facts, Saving Sentient Beings and Helping People Withdraw from the CCP
Master has told us that the responsibility and duty for Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples is to safeguard Dafa, save sentient beings, fulfill our historic vows and do the “three things” well. Master said,
“Also, with those people that you run into by chance, who you run into in daily life, and the people you run into at work, you should all clarify the truth to them. Even when in your daily life you pass by people so quickly that you don't have a chance to talk to them, you should still leave them with your compassion and kindness. Don't lose those who should be saved, especially those with predestined connections.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference”)
I've enlightened to the fact that I am a Dafa practitioner during the Fa-rectification period, so I should try to save sentient beings in my life. As long as we have great compassion to save sentient beings with a will that can melt steel, regarding ourselves as future Buddhas, Daos, and Gods, we can save more people. This is the most important thing in my life. No matter where I go, I bring the truth of Dafa to the people there. My first thought towards those beings is, “I am a Dafa disciple and have come to save you.” I then clean up all the evil elements in their dimensional fields and dissolve all the dark minions, rotten ghosts and evil communist spirits that control them. When I meet elderly people, I talk to them about curing diseases and keeping fit, about the beauty of Dafa, about the CCP's history of killing, and about withdrawing from the CCP. When I meet young people, I talk to them about what happened during the Cultural Revolution, about the corruption of the CCP, about the June 4, 1989 incident in Tiananmen Square, about the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, and about withdrawing from the CCP.
I bring the blessings of Dafa to every household that I deliver briquettes to and “clarify the truth” to them and ask them to withdraw from the CCP. Sometimes I'm able to convince over 20 people to withdraw in one day. I also remember to distribute truth-clarification materials wherever I go. Of course, it is Master's arrangement that we are worthy of assisting Master in the Fa-rectification period and in saving sentient beings. So we just need to follow Master's arrangements to do the things that we should do.
During the past few years of cultivation, I have deeply felt the compassion and magnificence of Master Li. I have also experienced that only when we study the Fa more and study the Fa well, can we assimilate to Dafa, be firm in our righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth better and save more sentient beings without letting down Master's immense mercy.
I feel I still have many human attachments to be removed. I will attach more importance to studying the Fa and will strive forward more diligently each day to come!
The above understanding is limited by my own level. If there is anything inappropriate, I hope fellow practitioners will compassionately point it out.
