Miraculous Cultivation Path
(Clearwisdom.net) Greetings, revered Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!
I first began practicing Falun Gong in 2005 and during the four years of my cultivation, I have experienced the magnificence and divinity of Dafa. I've also encountered dangers when I introduced Dafa to other people. I have always been basked in Teacher's kind care and protection. Now, with the Sixth Internet Experience Sharing Conference for Practitioners in China, I would like to report my cultivation status to our benevolent Master and share my own cultivation experiences.
1. How I obtained Dafa
My mother was always sick and frail. She had to take medicine before and after every meal. In the spring of 2004, she came to visit me and lived with us for a while. One day, she brought home with her a book, and she told me that she had heard from others that if she learned this school of qigong, she could regain her health and she could also bring good luck to her family members. She asked me whether I would allow her to practice. I saw that the book was about Falun Gong. I said to her, "Well, you are so old, you can practice if you would like to. How can you do anything at such an advanced age?" That is how she began practicing Falun Gong.
Every day when I was taking my lunch break and having a rest, she was reading her book of Falun Gong. She would ask me what this word in the book meant one minute and the next minute she would ask about another word. I was bothered by her and couldn't get a moment's rest, so I decided to read the book for her. Gradually, I felt that the book was really good, not like what had been denounced on television. The following day, she brought home another book about Falun Gong. That book taught the exercises. She couldn't understand it by herself, so I read it for her and taught her how to do the exercises according to the book. She said that she felt that there was a Falun rotating in her abdominal area. I said to myself in my heart, "Woo, she has gone astray, just like what was described on television." On the third day, she refused to take all of the medicine that she previously took and wanted to throw it away. I got worried about her and decided to send her back to my hometown.
New Year's eve in 2005, I returned to my hometown to visit my mother It seemed that her health had been restored, and she looked better than ever. Her lips were rosy and her skin was delicate with a healthy glow. She talked about the miraculous things that had happened to her. I felt that she had gone even further and had become infatuated with the practice. I worried about her, and, as a result, I returned home. I went to the practitioner my mother knew and asked her to give me a book to study.
When I finished reading the book, I suddenly realized that the purpose of being a human being is to cultivate oneself in order to be a Buddha or a Dao. That's why, if you trace back the origins of different cultures of different nations and countries, you'll find that they all start with the myths or legends of deities. Before, I had always assumed that they were all conceived by people. At that moment, I understood why my mom had become so infatuated with qigong.
When I finished reading the book for the second time, in a daytime dream, I suddenly saw a big eye blinking in front of my head. It had burgundy, wavy short hair, and it was looking at me curiously. I knew that this was the eye that Master had given to me. I was so excited--I knew that I had obtained the Fa.
Falun Gong is so magnificent! After that, at home, in my workplace or in social environments, I always behaved myself according to the requirements of Zhuan Falun by Master.
2. Spreading the Fa
As I studied the Fa again and again, I realized that I could not live without Dafa. However, I met with interference from my husband. At the very beginning, he began to try to dissuade me and begged me politely and emotionally. Later on, he threatened me, saying that he wanted to divorce me. Finally, he grabbed my neck and tried to force me to stop. However, I never gave up. I did want to cultivate in Falun Gong.
Everyday I spent a lot time studying the Fa. Sometimes I felt like Master was sitting in front me and giving the Fa lecture to me. Every word of the Fa is so clear to me. Sometimes I felt that my body became so light that I could levitate into the air. Sometimes I felt that every word in the book was golden and shining. Sometimes I felt that my whole body became continuously enlarged like a big balloon. In any event, when you really calm down and study the Fa with your pure heart, you are going to have some wonderful feelings. All my efforts in studying the Fa helped me a lot to validate the Fa later on.
Before the Olympic Games last year, seven local practitioners were illegally detained and several sites that produced truth-clarification materials were also destroyed. As a result, none of the other practitioners were able to read the Minghui Weekly and other Dafa materials. Later on, we decided that we should find a copy shop operated by ordinary people to copy our materials. I was chosen to do this job temporarily. Whatever the weather, rain or shine, I would deliver the Dafa materials to my fellow practitioners. Sometimes, there were many people in the shop, and I had to wait until they finished their tasks and left. Sometimes, I had to pause my job when others suddenly showed up. It usually took me a few hours to finish the job, which could have been done in only half an hour had security not been an issue. I had kept doing this for more than half a year.
Sometimes when the Dafa materials were ready, there was interference, and I couldn't manage to deliver them. I sent forth righteous thoughts and spoke to Master in my heart, "Please, Master, please help me deliver the materials to my fellow practitioners." Answering my plea, not long after that, my family members went out for something else so I had a chance to go out. I really experienced what Master taught us in Zhuan Falun that, "The cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master."
With the help of my fellow practitioners, I finally had my own production site to make materials. The process of producing Dafa materials is also a process for me to cultivate my xinxing. Since before I started my cultivation in Dafa, I already had some basic knowledge of computers, so it was very easy for me to grasp the basics, and I could successfully run my own material production site.
Looking at those colorful Dafa materials, I felt very glad in my heart. However, sometimes when I was producing Dafa materials, my cultivation status was not so good, or my mind couldn't calm down. At those times, unusual things would happen to my equipment. Once, I was chatting with somebody when I was making some DVD discs. It took more than ten minutes to finish one disc. After a while, we stopped and started studying the Fa. Later on, the computer did its job really fast, and it only took us five minutes to make one disc. The computer ran at that speed for the rest of the discs. Actually, we never changed the computer speed--it was always at 6X. It was really miraculous!
When I studied the Fa again and again, I realized that my mission as a Dafa disciple is to assist Teacher to rectify the Fa and to save sentient beings, so sometimes, I also went out to distribute the materials about Dafa. I thought that the most effective way for me to get rid of my ordinary people's attachments was to distribute the Dafa materials. When I first started distributing materials, my heart beat like a drum, my hands almost trembled, and my legs quivered. Later on, I sent forth righteous thoughts to ask Master to help me.
3. Using divine power to validate Dafa
I graduated from a university twenty years ago. During those twenty years, I hadn't seen any of my former classmates. We all experienced the "June 4th" massacre, and we all buried the lingering fear inside our hearts. I prepared for every former classmate a DVD disc of the "2009 Shen Yun Performing Arts." I also gave some of them copies of Zhuan Falun and Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. I also explained to them that they could travel to Zhangbu Township, Pingtang County, Guizhou Province, to see a large slab of stone with six Chinese characters naturally formed on its surface that say, "The Chinese Communist Party Is Finished." I told them that since we had been classmates at the university, we had a predestined relationship and should keep in touch and share good things with each other.
When I traveled on a train, I chatted with the conductors about the implications of "virtue" and about that famous scientific experiment of water crystallization by the Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto. I drew the conclusion that, as human beings, we should follow the teachings of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also gave them the Shen Yun VCDs and told them that they would have good fortune after they saw it. Many of them were excited to see it and asked me how much they should pay me. I said that I didn't want money, that the discs were free, and that I hoped that they could pass them on to their friends and relatives after they finished watching them, so that they could also accumulate virtue for themselves.
Right now, I feel quite at ease when I talk to people about Falun Gong. I feel that everything around me is prepared for me to validate Dafa. Teacher taught us in the poem "Tathagata" from Hong Yin II:
"He comes with Truth that gives him free reign
And travels the four seas with a free and easy spirit
The Fa's principles spread throughout the world
His Fa Boat sets sail, loaded full with sentient beings"
This year the evil CCP celebrates its 60th birthday, and it has become crazy again. However, for us, a tiny finger will be more than enough to crush it. Don't be affected by false appearances. We should just follow our Master's requirements: study the Fa well, send forth righteous thoughts, save the sentient beings, and validate Dafa.
Thank you, revered Master! Thank you, my fellow practitioners! With my folded lotus hands.
