We Never Stopped Our Local Group Practice
(Clearwisdom.net) I started cultivating Falun Dafa in 1996. The beauty of Dafa changed me significantly, both physically and mentally. In addition, I experienced many miracles.
Before I started to cultivate, my health was poor. At that time, I often went to mountains to burn incense and worship Buddha. At last, I went to Wudang Mountain. I knew that Zhen-Wu had cultivated at Wudang Mountain for 42 years; he went through lots of hardships and obtained enlightenment and became an immortal. Yet my illness did not improve, even after I had visited many holy places in China. One time, I went to a temple to burn incense, and I bumped into someone who talked about the miracles of Falun Dafa. I was excited after hearing the stories, and that person gave me the book Zhuan Falun. When I returned home and opened the book, I saw golden radiating Buddha light. I held the book with both hands and thought that Master had come to save me. I had tears in my eyes and called Master a few times. I knew that this was the true Master, whom I had wanted to find.
On my journey of cultivation over the past dozen years, I seemed to have become a different person, and many miracles happened to me. Before my cultivation, I had quite a few illnesses: anemia, paranasal sinus, and a tumor grew in my stomach. A doctor told me that I had a gynecopathic disease and I would not be able to have any children. After I started to cultivate in Falun Dafa, I no longer took any medicine. Yet, all my diseases disappeared. I was even more fortunate and gave birth to a healthy child. Dafa is truly miraculous. My whole family witnessed the miracles through my cultivation, and they know that Falun Dafa is good. We all thank our great Master.
I would like to talk about our group cultivation environment. We have never stopped studying the Fa and doing the exercises as a group ever since we obtained the Fa. Our practice field is very good. Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) stated to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, we have sent forth righteous thoughts, clarified the truth, helped people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, posted Dafa informational fliers and hung up banners as one body. When we noticed that some practitioners had attachments, or if we had disagreements, we talked about them, looked inward, and tried to find our own shortcomings. Each piece of truth-clarification materials we held radiated golden Buddha light. Thus, we treasure every piece of material. Once, a practitioner and I distributed truth-clarification materials to a family. The family dog barked and we told the dog: “Don’t bark. We come to save your master.” The dog lay down on the ground and stopped barking. We felt that this was truly miraculous. When we finished distributing those materials, it was 2:00 a.m. Despite the time that I put into truth-clarification, my family has been very supportive of my truth-clarification work, because they too have benefited from my cultivation practice.
During group practice, we can feel the Falun spinning, which Master has given us. When we do the standing exercises, we feel very relaxed as well. Plus, we can become still during the meditation, just like Master described in Zhuan Falun:
“When you sit there, you should feel wonderful and very comfortable as though you are sitting inside an egg shell; you will be aware of yourself practicing the exercise, but you feel that your whole body cannot move. This is what must occur in our practice.” (Lecture Eight, Attachment of Zealotry)
Master’s Fa truly manifests in me. When I do the sitting exercise, I feel a big and strong energy field around me. My body seems very big and like a Buddha body, with no weight and only the thought that I am practicing is present.
Let us treasure this opportunity, assist Master in rectifying the Fa and improve together before the Fa-rectification arrives in the human world.
Since my level is limited, I welcome everyone’s comments.
