Improving Myself in Fa-Rectification Cultivation
(Clearwisdom.net) I started cultivating in Falun Dafa in August 1996. I was moved to tears when I saw the dance "Creation" in the Shen Yun performance during the 2008 Chinese New Year. "Creation" is about Master leading divine beings to descend to the human world to create civilization for mankind, and he later leads them back to heaven. I was so moved because this dance caused me to recall a dream that I had before I attained the Fa; the scenes in the dream were so spectacular! In my dream, I was a very lovely little girl who was picking flowers when I suddenly saw a scene that was the same as that depicted in the dance "Creation." Master was in the lead, and many divine beings followed behind Master to descend to the human world. One of the divine beings in front of me told me, "This is my Master!" I attained the Fa not long after I had that dream, and ever since then, I have persevered on my cultivation path.
On July 22, 1999, several practitioners and I went to the provincial government to peacefully appeal against the persecution. I am employed by a government branch, and the leaders are very sensitive about appeals; hence, I was criticized for my participation. Amidst this suffering, I saw my primordial spirit rise above my workplace like a heavenly maiden. I knew that Master was encouraging me. The supervisor of my work unit, under pressure from the upper management, demoted me from my original position to another department. This happened in 2000. The workload in my new position was relatively light, but my income, which consisted of salary and bonuses, was higher than what I had before. But I was just an ordinary worker in the new department, so I knew that this was to target my attachment to fame. I clearly knew that it was Master who had arranged my path and the environment of my cultivation, so as to let me have more time for studying and validating the Fa. I remembered Master's words, "...you should be a good person in every circumstance." ("Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Canada," May 23, 1999) I always try to consider others first when I do anything, in order to harmonize my work environment. Besides working, I have more time to study the Fa with a calm mind. I have persistently continued to rectify myself within the Fa.
During those early days of the persecution, there was no guarantee that every practitioner could get a copy of Master's articles. So I then utilized the convenience of my work to make copies of Master's articles for fellow practitioners, and later I started to make truth-clarification materials. My fellow practitioners and I made posters printed with "Falun Dafa is good," "Falun Dafa is a righteous way of cultivation," and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." In the evenings, we went out to put up the posters in the streets. Later, after we had established a truth-clarification materials production site, we went to places that had many people to distribute the materials so as to help sentient beings learn the truth. Master said,
"Yet I can tell you that the things that seem mundane on this ordinary human side might be truly dramatic in the realm of your cultivation--a realm that you can't see." ("Teaching the Fa at the Assistants' Fa Conference in Changchun," July 26, 1998)
I practice all five sets of exercises every morning and study the Fa every evening. Every day, I gladly go out to tell people the facts of the persecution, offering people an opportunity at salvation. I am walking the path of Fa-rectification and fulfilling my prehistoric oath.
The Epoch Times newspaper published the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and the "Solemn Statement" in November 2004. My fellow practitioners and I first declared our withdrawals from the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its related organizations on the Epoch Times website. We then convinced our family members, relatives and friends to withdraw from the party and its affiliated organizations. In the meantime, we also printed out copies of the Epoch Times "Solemn Statement" and put them in various places, so as to help more people get the message. We brought copies of the Nine Commentaries to different streets and residential places for distribution, so people could learn the truth and understand the evil nature of the CCP. Every time we go out, I ask Master to strengthen me. I consider each and every copy of truth-clarification materials as a powerful tool to save sentient beings.
With the Fa in my mind, I do not have any fear when handing out truth-clarification materials. I have understood from the Fa that I am a cultivator of the Great Law of the universe, a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple, and a cultivator who assists Master in rectifying the Fa. I should be calm and steady, and no evil or rotten demons can enter my dimensional field or they will be instantly disintegrated and eliminated. From November 2004 to the present, I have given out several thousand copies of the Nine Commentaries; I have also distributed many other materials including the video recordings of the Shen Yun performance.
I remember that the authorities once wanted to put several Dafa disciples on trial. Before the trial started, I went to an area close to the court and the Procuratorate to give out truth-clarification materials. Just after I stopped my bicycle, I noticed that a police car was just in front of me. I thought that the police had already noticed me, but I did not panic. I sent forth righteous thoughts in my mind. I locked my bicycle and then went inside a clothes store. I asked Master to strengthen me, and in the meantime, I sent forth righteous thoughts to have the police leave. Inside the store, I noticed that the police vehicle remained stopped there for quite a long time. I started to look inward, but I did not find any gaps. At that time, I sent forth even stronger righteous thoughts and I focused on disintegrating the evil. I believed Master was at my side protecting me and there were also many Fa guardians. I asked them to help me to eliminate the evil. So while browsing around, I sent forth powerful righteous thoughts. After a moment, the police vehicle left. Later, I saw police vehicles everywhere in the streets. If it weren't for Master's and the Fa guardians' protection, there would have been unimaginable consequences. I truly understand, "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." (Zhuan Falun)
Master, please be assured that I will certainly cultivate myself diligently, do well the three things, and return home with Master.
