Young Practitioner: Looking Inside and Doing the Three Things Well
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a seven-year-old Falun Gong practitioner. I cannot write a long article, so I asked my mom to record my words.
First, I wanted to thank Master. It is Master who made me a very healthy person. (I have never had to take medicine or injections). Through Fa study, I know I need to look inside. If I am wrong, I will correct myself and do my best to be a genuine young Falun Gong practitioner.
Mom told me that since she became pregnant with me, she kept studying the Fa every day. Even when she could not read, she played recordings of Master's Fa for me. When I was in mom's womb, I accompanied her while she was distributing Falun Gong materials and when she went to Beijing to appeal. After I was born, I kept listening to the Fa and sometimes I was able to listen to one whole chapter of Fa in one day. Therefore, my physical condition has been excellent. This is because of the power of Falun Dafa.
When I was three years old, one granny practitioner was persecuted by personnel from the Chinese Communist Party. My mom and I sent forth righteous thoughts together hoping that the granny practitioner would be able to return home the same day. We focused our righteous thoughts without moving for 15 minutes. Later, we learned that the granny practitioner really was able to return home that same day. Sometimes, mom and I went out to distribute information about the persecution of Falun Gong together, and I knew that I should pay attention to safety so I was never mischievous. When mom took me shopping, I sat behind her on the bicycle and shouted loudly "Falun Dafa is Good" and the ladies who were shopping looked at me with a smile.
When I was 4 years old, dad and mom taught me to read Zhuan Falun. Sentence by sentence and paragraph by paragraph, I spent one year finishing the book for the first time. Mom told me to keep righteous thoughts and ask Master to reinforce me when studying Fa. Gradually, I was able to read the words and study by myself. Now during group Fa study, I can follow along at the speed of the group.
Master taught us that Falun Gong practitioners during the Fa-rectification period need to do three things and save sentient beings, so I need to do the three things well too. First is to study the Fa. In the past, I needed mom and dad to remind me to study the Fa, and I was passive. Mom asked me to look inside for why I was not diligent and why I needed others to remind me. I looked inward and realized that I had a heavy attachment to playing and was not willing to bear hardships. Now, when I get up, I don't need mom to remind me to wash my face and hands. Then, I start to study the Fa. Every day before I go to school, I recite ten pages of Zhuan Falun by heart. But, I spent too little time practicing and I want to do better in the future.
Next is sending forth righteous thoughts. Because I need to go to class, I can send forth righteous thoughts at night. Sometimes, I went with dad and mom to the forced labor camp and prison to send forth righteous thoughts close up. Winter in the northeast is very cold. However, that and the long distance we had to travel did not keep us from going. In the summer time, mom and dad went there on bicycles, and I sat on the bicycle. I could tolerate my numb and sore legs and sent forth righteous thoughts well to eliminate the evil.
Through Fa study, I know that Dafa practitioners during the Fa-rectification period need to clarify the truth and save people. Sometimes, I help dad and mom to fold truth clarification materials, check CDs for quality, burn CDs or do some other work that I am able to handle. During the process, I set strict requirements for myself and seriously and carefully fold fliers and press them very well. When checking CDs I have never missed a single detail because mom said we were the first to handle the materials so we had to walk righteously and do well, then the materials would have the power of the Fa when they are distributed and Master would reinforce them so they could better save sentient beings. Sometimes, mom talked to me with a smile saying that I was a young practitioner who watched the NTDTV Chinese New Year Spectacular so many times because I checked every CD and I watched every time. I love the programs of "The Loyalty of Yue Fei" and "Mulan"so much.
When I started going to school, I encountered xinxing tests more and more. When classmates or students hit me and took advantage of me, I took it happily and let it go because Master said that when cultivating and reaching the Arhat position one should always be happy, so I followed Master's teaching when doing things.
I still have many shortcomings on my cultivation path, such as attachments to playing, laziness and lack of seriousness. I will certainly study the Fa well and get rid of these attachments to be a genuine Fa-rectification period young Dafa practitioner.
