(Clearwisdom.net) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. Before I became a practitioner, I had always wished to find a peaceful place, without conflicts. But how can one find such a place in the human world? Therefore, I thought about going to the temple and becoming a nun. I was tired of various things in everyday life and felt exhausted. Even before I married I already had many illnesses. Plus there was much difficulty in my life as well. Because of this, I always felt heaven treated me unfairly and I even wanted to commit suicide. But thinking of my child, I had to continue living and be a good mother.
In the spring of 1998, a friend told me that Falun Dafa is very miraculous. My first reaction was: "Really? Do you have a copy of the book for me to borrow and read?" That evening I read the book and my feelings were beyond description. This is the precious book that I have been looking for throughout my life--finally I found the ladder to heaven. I was determined in my cultivation.
After beginning to practice, many miracles happened to me. Compassionate Master helped purify me. While doing the exercises I saw many animal-like things leaving my dimension. I also saw a white lotus flower and a transparent celestial eye. I steadfastly continued to study the Fa and do the exercises, and my health improved dramatically. All my previous illnesses were gone, including rheumatoid arthritis, chronic gastritis, a duodenal ulcer, protrusion of the lumbar intervertebral discs, insomnia and various gynaecological illnesses. After living in pain and discomfort for more than 50 years, this was the first time in my life that I experienced the feeling of having no illnesses.
Clarifying the truth and asking people to quit the CCP
When the persecution started in July 1999, I had just practiced for one year. Nonetheless, I did not yield despite the rampant persecution. At that time I once told a practitioner that I would continue to cultivate no matter what happened to me. However, although I kept practicing, I was not diligent. My heart was pained. I knew all that slanderous propaganda was all lies, but it seemed I could do nothing about it. With help from practitioners, I began to do better in my Fa-study, sending forth righteous thoughts and truth-clarification. I also posted posters and gave informational materials to people face-to-face. During this process, many bad things were eliminated from me. When doing the second set of exercises, I truly had the feeling of guanding when a warm current passed from my head throughout my entire body. I told another practitioner that, although it seemed we had sacrificed, our efforts were being rewarded by Master as more gong.
In November 2004, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published and this was a big blow to the CCP's evil specter. By then I had taken on the responsibility of taking care of my granddaughter. When she was several months old, we walked to nearby communities to distribute the Nine Commentaries, clarify the truth and ask people to quit the CCP. When she was a little older, she became my guide. Everywhere she suggested that we go, there were always people waiting for us to save them. Once we came across the assistant head of the Education Bureau. We talked for a long time and he happily quit the CCP. As we were leaving, he shook hands to thank us. We had many miraculous incidents like this.
In 2007, my granddaughter started attending kindergarten and I had more time. In addition to distributing truth-clarification materials, I also went to various places to send forth righteous thoughts, including detention centers, brainwashing centers, police departments and city government buildings. Every day, I asked Master to strengthen me before I left home. On the way back, I clarified the facts and asked people to quit the CCP, as well as giving out informational materials to people face-to-face.
Once I met a retired manager from the police department. We talked for a long time about what had been happening to Falun Gong practitioners in China, from the beginning of the persecution, the lies surrounding the so-called self-immolation incident at Tiananmen Square, and how Falun Gong is openly practiced in more than 80 countries. I also answered many questions he had. In the beginning, he repeated the CCP's lies, but as we talked his attitude changed and in the end he said, "Falun Gong is really outstanding." In this way, his life was saved.
While talking to people about Falun Gong, I also met people who were very vicious. But under Master's benevolent protection, I was able to return home safely.
We all know the importance of Fa-study. In 2007, I decided to memorize and recite the Fa. So far I have recited Zhuan Falun several times. I feel reciting the Fa is better than reading the Fa since I am able to understand more. In addition, I was able to calm down while reciting the Fa so that I could be immersed in the Fa. Later I hand-transcribed Zhuan Falun one time and I was able to understand more. In my understanding, the wisdom practitioners have all come from the Fa. Only by studying the Fa well can we do the three things well. Only in this way can one have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, and thus return home with Master.
Falun Dafa saved me
One morning after doing the exercises and having breakfast, I hurried off to work. While I was crossing the road, I was hit by a car. At that moment, I did not have any fear and my mind was clear. But my righteous thoughts were not strong, and I did not immediately think of Master and Dafa. Because of this, I lost consciousness. One neighbor that witnessed the accident became so frightened that he became faint and had to sit down on the ground. I was thrown three or four meters, and was bleeding heavily from an injury to my head. When he saw what had happened, my husband was very worried about me. After waking up, my mind was clear and I realized my loopholes had been taken advantage of by the old forces. While I was hospitalized, I saw a white Falun rotating. The Falun kept rotating constantly and did not leave me until I was fully recovered.
I witnessed the miracles of Falun Dafa and it was also a test for me during the tribulation. On the third day after the accident, an elderly lady about my age was also hospitalized. She had an injury similar to mine and died two days later. Master used others mouths in order to help me enlighten on this. My younger brother, also a practitioner, came to see me. He said his mother-in-law, who was nearly 80 years old, was hit by a car and thrown more than 10 meters. During the accident, she maintained strong righteous thoughts. Afterwards she was totally fine and is doing the three things well. Then my brother asked what I intended to do about my situation. I realized that, as a Dafa disciple, there are so many things for me to do and I should not continue staying in the hospital! Due to Master's beneficent care and righteous thoughts from other practitioners, I was able to deny the old forces' arrangements. Despite the very serious injury, I left the hospital after a few days and the doctors were quite surprised by my miraculous recovery.
Master's Fa-principles have been very clear and we really should do better as practitioners.
