(Clearwisdom.net) I wish to share with fellow practitioners about my cultivation during the Fa-rectification period. I also wish to do the three things, support fellow practitioners, improve with the whole body and assist the coordinator.

1. Forming a Fa-study Group

After the persecution began in 1999, due to the severe persecution, we lost the ability to continue our group Fa-study and group exercises. Most practitioners were deceived by the lies broadcast by the country's media and went into hiding, and some even gave up cultivation. With the progress of Fa-rectification, especially after studying Master's new articles and lectures, I came to understand our mission.

Master said that:

"From now on, the Dafa disciples in China as much as anyone, both new students and veterans alike, should let go of their long-standing human attachments and start to seize the day and comprehensively save the world's people."" ("Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People")

In our area, individual practitioners kept their own counsel and we did not improve as one body. Some practitioners did not improve their understandings of the Fa because of their low education level. Therefore, I felt the importance of helping them.

I discussed the issue with our coordinator and as a result formed a Fa-study group at my home. Thus we could recover our group Fa-study environment, something created by Master. After our Fa-study group was formed, practitioners that were illiterate became more diligent. They studied the Fa carefully, listening while others read out loud. Thus, our group improved as one body.

One practitioner who knew very few Chinese characters was able to read the entire book Zhuan Falun and she improved her understanding of the Fa. She clarified the truth daily to those who held a misunderstanding of Falun Gong. A timid practitioner finally began to clarify the truth. Without help, she recognized what held her back and asked me to take her along when talking to people about Falun Gong. She not only could produce truth-clarification materials, but also did well in clarifying the truth face-to-face. She helped more than 3,000 people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Once, a practitioner neglected Fa study because of having to work in the field. The old forces found her loophole and she became very sick. Her husband was very scared and her son couldn't understand her either. She asked me to come and see her. I told her, "Come with me and we'll talk." At that time it was raining, but once I stepped out the door, the rain miraculously stopped. I took her to our group Fa-study and we sent forth righteous thoughts every hour-on-the-hour to eliminate the evil that polluted her field. We didn't allow the old forces to use any excuse to persecute her and interfere with the three things. After one week of Fa-study, she recovered. Actually, she began to recover during the second group Fa study. This helped us feel the power of one body and the supernatural power granted by Dafa. At the same time, her family saw the miraculous ability of Dafa.

Another time, a practitioner's parents wanted to hear the facts about Dafa. The practitioner was a little insecure as she wasn't that educated and could not explain very well. She asked me to talk to her parents and help them understand the practice. It was quite a distance to that village, so I took a bus. Everyone was waiting for me. There were seven or eight people. I explained that Falun Dafa is good, about the persecution, the staged self-immolation, told them of the rock with Chinese characters that predicted the demise of the CCP and about quitting the CCP. I read the poem "Recall the Compassion of Master," and talked about the miraculous happenings during the early years of Falun Gong. They were very interested. In the evening, I showed the Shen Yun DVD. We gave truth-clarification materials to each family in that village. Not only were the practitioners family members saved, but also the entire village learned the facts about Falun Gong.

Once, a practitioner from a nearby village told me, "Someone in our village reported us to the police station. What shall we do?" I answered, "Your issue is also my issue. Aren't we one body?" We immediately went to that village and organized practitioners to study the Fa and sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions and have the bad people receive immediate retribution. Our righteous thoughts as one body successfully stopped further persecution. The person who reported us always hid when seeing our practitioners.

2. Assisting the Coordinator

Practitioners continuously exposed the persecution, talked to people about Falun Dafa with the wish to save everyone. Many new practitioners began to cultivate. Thus, Dafa books and materials were in short supply. We hadn't established a material-production site, so we relied on practitioners from out-of-town to bring them to us. We needed urgently the book Zhuan Falun and tapes of Master's lectures. The coordinator began to worry. I said, "Don't worry, I will try to get some help." I asked help from my child's mother-in-law, who is a practitioner. Being of one body, she readily agreed to help and the problem was resolved. She lived quite far and yet we received everything on time, providing great help the Fa-rectification in our area. We have been cooperating well for the past several years.

We did have some trouble over the years, especially when we changed the characters in Zhuan Falun. I always corrected the characters before sending the books to other practitioners. Once a practitioner urgently needed Zhuan Falun. I said, "I have not corrected the characters yet, but if you need the book in a hurry just take the book." The practitioner answered, "I'd rather not take the book if the characters haven't been corrected." I got upset, "It took so much time to get these books, and fixing the characters won't take that long. You really don't know how to appreciate other people's efforts." After a while I calmed down, and found my problem after studying the Fa. Isn't it my fault? How could I be so upset? And I even threw a temper tantrum when the practitioner helped me to improve! Also, I should not deprive other practitioners of the opportunity to cultivate. The fixing of characters is also part of cultivation. If I fixed all the characters, then other practitioners would not be able to have this cultivation experience.

In the spring of 2007, the coordinator said, "There are many experience sharing meetings in other regions these days, which are very helpful for saving sentient beings. I think that we should also have one in our area to help more practitioners join the Fa-rectification process." I hesitated, so the coordinator said, "As long as we have righteous thoughts and actions, we will be able to do what needs to be done." Thus, with the support of fellow practitioners, we had the first experience sharing meeting in our area since July 1999. With pure and sincere thoughts, practitioners found their problems and recognized the importance of working as one body, which improved the Fa-rectification of our area.

3. Changes During Cultivation

During the second half of 2007, with the protection of Master, I moved in with my son in a big city. Master widened my cultivation path and strengthened my abilities. I felt my responsibility, although I had lost the cultivation environment that I used to have. This was especially difficult since I didn't know fellow practitioners in this area. So, I studied the Fa intensively. I realized that I am Master's disciple and no difficulty could stop me. I went to my hometown to get Falun Dafa materials. At that time we distributed envelopes with "a letter to people with predestined relationships." We wrote on the envelope, "If you get this, you are a person with a predestined relationship. If you get this, you are fortunate." I distributed them in residential areas, malls and markets. I also went to the largest library in our city. I did these with righteous thoughts and held no fear. Master saw my sincere heart to save people, so I found a fellow practitioner without much delay. I can't describe what I felt after finally getting in touch with practitioners of that area. I cried and thanked compassionate Master. I formed a Fa study group with the fellow practitioner. During the crazy Beijing Olympics, we weren't affected and continued to do the three things with righteous thoughts and actions.

With the progress of Fa rectification, this August, we met another practitioner who just obtained the Fa less than two months prior. She cultivated at home and had not stepped forward to clarify the truth yet. So, I brought her to our group Fa study. She only had two years of education. When reading Zhuan Falun, she could not even finish the sentences. She thought that as long as she knew the basic meanings it would be fine. I remembered that Master said, "All practitioners are disciples, no matter when they began the practice." (Zhuan Falun). I knew that I needed to help her. Thus, besides the group Fa study, I read Zhuan Falun with her every afternoon. Master's law body displayed every character in front of her. Soon she was able to read the entire book. At the same time she also read Master's recent lectures and improved quickly in the understanding of the Fa. She also asked me to take her along when talking to people about Falun Gong. Recently another practitioner who just obtained the Fa joined us. Our group expands continuously and we save more and more people.

I am just doing what a practitioner should do. Sharing with diligent practitioners, I realize that I still need to improve. I will continue to work hard, be ever more diligent, and help Master to save sentient beings and fulfill my prehistoric vow. I will not fail to live up to the title of the greatest life in the universe - Dafa disciple.
