(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Gong in 2005. Before I began to practice, I had been diagnosed with late stage of cancer and was told I was going to die. Because of this "death sentence," I decided that since so many people's diseases were healed after practicing Falun Gong, I should give it a try.
Frankly speaking, when I first began practicing Falun Gong, I had lots of human attachments. However, the merciful Master did not give up on me. Within less than three months since I started practicing Falun Gong, great changes occurred. Previously, I felt weak and was in pain all over my body; and then my symptoms disappeared gradually after practicing. The doctors said that I could not live longer than a year, but I have survived five years without any medication. I know it is Master who saved me. Only if I continually improve my xinxing and diligently study the Fa, am I qualified to be a disciple of Master, so that I could repay Master's mercy of rescuing me.
During these years, every day like clockwork, I sit in meditation and memorize the Fa. I go out with fellow practitioners to clarify the truth and help persuade people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
A few days ago, while I clarified the truth to people passing by, I met a woman in her forties. She was very serious when she listened to me and she asked many questions. I became determined to help this person understand the truth. After I talked to her, I found she was worried. Later I left my phone number and said that I would go to her home so we could talk about it more.
Just after dinner on July 18, 2010, as I prepared to go to the lady's home, my husband stopped me and said, "You cannot trust a stranger so easily. If she set a trap for you and a police officer arrested you, then what would you do? " When I heard that, I was hesitant. However, I was suddenly clear that it was because my husband is not fully practicing yet. He was poisoned by culture of the CCP and did not practice with me at first. He was amazed by the change in me and he began doing the exercises with me. But he is a new practitioner and he still has a lot of human attachments and sometimes he is still has fear. However, I always consider my husband's attachments as tests for both of us.
That night, he told me that he was worried and he did not want me to take materials to that lady. I explained patiently that Master had already said, "The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston") Then, I picked up the materials and went out.
However, before I arrived at her home, it started to rain hard. Because I had left in such a rush, I did not bring an umbrella. But I knew I was a Dafa disciple and was strengthened by Master; nothing could stop me from going down the divine path. As I had this thought, a miracle occurred. It was raining very hard, but I was not wet with even a drop of rain. I was surprised and looked up toward the sky and saw there was a big lotus floating over my head as big as an umbrella which protected my whole body. I saw everyone around me getting wet. I thank Master's boundless mercy.
I soon arrived at her home. She was moved when she opened the door and said, "It was raining so hard. I did not expect you would come. Did you not get soaked by the rain?" I said, "Why wouldn't I come when already arranged to meet? Even though the rain is heavy, it would not stop a Dafa disciple from helping others. Notice that I came all the way without an umbrella and my clothes did not get wet at all." She felt my clothes and was so surprised. She said she would not have believed it if she did not see with her own eyes. She decided to start practicing Falun Gong.
Just as what Master said in "Stirred by Reflection,"
"True thoughts dissolve all,
The whole sky is clear."
"Righteous thoughts each step of the way,
Divine beings are present in this world"
My level is limited. However, every word I say is from my heart. I thank Master for guiding and protecting us. I will follow Master steadfastly until reaching consummation.
