(Clwarwisdom.net) World Falun Dafa Day has again come upon us. I do not know how to express my gratitude in words.
When I was a student, due to many years of boarding school, I was very weak. During school break, when I helped my mother carry buckets of dirty water, I would be tired easily. However, it was the lack of direction in my life that concerned me the most. At that time, I searched everywhere until I found Falun Gong, and that is when I finally found hope and my true purpose in life.
I have practiced Falun Gong for over ten years. I don't feel tired no matter how heavy the work load is. I'm healthier than when I was in my twenties. My personality has changed from being selfish and indifferent to being warm-hearted and caring, which shocked many people who previously knew me. Many people have experienced the wonderfulness of Dafa. Although Falun Gong is under persecution, there are 11 people in my family who are practicing cultivation in Falun Dafa. Many of my relatives, neighbors and colleagues also started practicing Falun Gong.
At work, a coworker named Ying Ying had suffered from severe rhinitis. I told her to recite the words "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" and miracles would happen. She smiled. When I saw her again, she no longer suffered much and even happily quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Her mother, a Christian, also began reciting "Falun Dafa is good."
An elderly neighbor, Mr. Li had suffered from many diseases and had to stop many times when climbing the stairs to the third floor. He first read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and found it a great book. Then he read Zhuan Falun and said it was an even better book. Afterwards, he read The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa. He read these books for half a year, then he moved to live in southern China. He was here just to encounter Dafa because he moved here in Spring and when Fall came, he moved away.
For over 30 years my parents had worked for a forestry farm. They have been living in the mountains and planted corn in the field. During the Fall of 2008, there was no rain for close to two months. The police cars that protected the forest and prevented fires were on the road all day every day because people have a habit of burning corn stalks. My father felt that he understood the technology and has the knowledge of containing the fire and didn't think that it would cause any trouble. Therefore, he began to burn the corn stalks. Instantly, the fire sprung up and ignited the dried hay and trees next to it. My parents tried to fight the fire themselves using broken tree branches, but the fire grew stronger and stronger. My father's face was blackened by the smoke and his pants were on fire too. They were exhausted. Right before it became a huge disaster, my father remembered to ask for Master's help. He knelt down on the ground and begged Master to help him fight off the fire. With just that one thought, the situation changed. The flames started to diminish and it stopped spreading further into the forest. It also rained a little bit, thus, the huge fire was put out.
I have practiced Dafa for over ten years now. Many of my friends and family have benefited from Dafa. This is what we know. There are things we do not know of that Master has done and endured for us. Master has protected us with every step that we have taken. I would like to take this opportunity to express my great appreciation to Master!
