Greetings, Master!

Greetings, fellow practitioners!

I had worked as a Doctor of Internal Medicine for over 20 years before practicing Falun Dafa. I had many illnesses, but after cultivating in Falun Dafa for less than a year, all my illnesses disappeared. At work I interact with dozens of people daily, which gives me the opportunity to clarify the truth face-to-face. I've been clarifying the truth this way since the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999. I also deal with medical sales personnel. I have talked to them at length and persuaded eighty to ninety percent of them to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations.

I am a veteran practitioner who obtained the Fa in 1998. At that time, I started to cultivate because I wanted to eliminate illnesses and strengthen my body. I had many illnesses, such as constant headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, muscle pain and severe motion sickness. When I went out to do something as simple as attending a conference, I would get sick after coming back. I had to carry pain medication with me all the time. After cultivating in Falun Dafa for less than a year, I was completely healthy. Since then, I firmly believe that what Master teaches us is true, and that I must follow Master to cultivate until consummation.

On July 20, 1999, the persecution of Falun Gong started. Although I did not study the Fa well yet, I had a firm thought that Master is supernormal and nobody can touch him. Falun Dafa is the most righteous Fa. There is nothing wrong with cultivating in Falun Dafa or following the principle of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” to be a good person. I walked on the path of cultivation righteously. Master protects me and nobody can move me. I wasn't very fearful at that time. I believe it was because of my firm belief in Master and the Fa. Throughout my cultivation in the Fa-Rectification period for the past 12 years, Master has constantly protected and enlightened me. Because of this, Master has allowed me to walk steadily until today. I am very grateful for Master's compassionate salvation. Below, I want to report to Master and share with fellow practitioners about three aspects of my cultivation.

1. Clarifying the Truth and Saving Sentient Beings Face-to-Face

At work, I'm in contact with dozens of people every day, which gives me the advantage of clarifying the truth face-to-face. As soon as the persecution started, I began to clarify the truth. In the beginning, I did this from a third-person perspective. I asked patients about their opinions on Jiang's evil persecution of Falun Gong. They generally thought that Jiang is very bad and that Falun Gong practitioners are good people. Then, I explained to them what Falun Gong is and how Master taught us to be good people. I also explained that Master taught us to be exceptionally good, beyond what one would expect of an ordinary person.

Later, I had truth-clarifying materials to save people. I didn't have a lot of such materials at that time, so I usually showed it to them while talking face-to-face. After that, I gave them the materials based on their level of acceptance. After Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published, I began to clarify the truth and persuade people to withdraw from the CCP. In addition to the people that I ran into on a daily basis, I clarified the truth to leaders of the city government, the people's congress and the court. I can't remember how many people I've talked to during the past few years. I once clarified the truth to a head of the court (who later became the deputy director of the city People's Congress). After I talked to him, he agreed to quit the CCP. I also talked to a former deputy regimental army officer. He became the deputy director of the local 610 Office after he left the army. Later when he ran into my colleague, he asked about my situation. He told my colleague that he really didn't want to arrest Falun Gong practitioners since they are good people. My colleague said he can choose not to arrest the practitioners. He said he had to do it because of the immense pressure from the top level authorities. The evil CCP not only persecutes Dafa, but also drags people who could be saved into committing crimes against Dafa, thereby placing their futures in dire peril.

While talking to medical sales personnel, there was one salesperson for a certain company whom I persuaded to quit the CCP. They then sent another salesperson. Some salespeople also watched the video of Master's Fa Lecture in Guangzhou. One of them also copied a set of the Fa lecture videos. Two of them bought Zhuan Falun. After talking to me, some told others to come to me. I know Master led all the predestined people to me. Three to four of them frequently came to me to obtain new truth-clarifying materials.

In the beginning, I pushed salespeople away or refused to meet with them to avoid accruing karma by accepting bribes. Sometimes some salespeople badmouthed me for refusing their bribes, saying that I was refusing to acknowledge reality.

Later I read in Zhuan Falun:

“All the professions out there should exist, it’s only that people are short of integrity. It’s not about what type of profession you are in......whichever social class you’re in, for how to be a good person, you can all let go of different desires and attachments.” (Zhuan Falun)

I pushed away sentient beings who should have been saved because I was afraid of accruing karma. This was a manifestation of selfishness and a crime. In addition, I realized that I can control myself in front of temptation. After I realized this, I started to meet with them. When we first met, I told them directly that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and it is my responsibility and choice to put the patients first. I also explained that bribery is not right and Falun Gong practitioners absolutely cannot be a part of it. I hoped that they could understand, and they generally did. Sometimes I didn't even use their products, but they came to visit and talk to me about Falun Gong.

Over the course of the past few years, I have witnessed many miracles. For example, once I met a woman in her 70s. She had coronary heart disease and severe heart failure. Her heart rate was 39 bpm and her whole body was swollen. She had lost the ability to care for herself. She found it difficult to breathe and couldn't lay flat on a bed. She was hospitalized four times within a year and had to be hooked up to an oxygen machine. When I talked to this woman and gave her a truth-clarifying amulet, she became very excited. After that, before she went to sleep or right after she got up, she held the amulet with both hands and recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She continued doing it every day. When I met her again a few years later, she looked completely reborn. Her facial complexion was very healthy. The swelling was gone. She told me that she had lost nearly 40 pounds, most of it water weight. Her heart rate improved to 70 bpm. She told me that she could easily walk 5 kilometers and hasn't been hospitalized since our meeting. The first words she said after she met me was, “Thanks Master!” Then she thanked me for giving her such a good thing. I said, “You have the predestined relationship with Dafa. Master did everything for you. You can only thank Master. As long as you believe that 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', you will be blessed." Later her husband and three sons all withdrew from the CCP and its related organizations.

Once a young lady had a high fever for seven to eight days. All the medicine she'd taken at home didn't work. She came to me and asked for an infusion. I did a blood test for her and the test result looked normal. Therefore, I just prescribed some inexpensive medicine, rather than having her go through the expense of an infusion. Then I talked to her and persuaded her to quit the CCP. I also told her to recite sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She happily agreed. The next day after she got up, her whole body felt light and she no longer had the fever anymore. Soon her entire family quit the CCP.

Certainly not everyone reacts the same way. During the past few years, I was reported to the authorities three times. Each time, the police angrily came to look for hospital management, as well as my husband. In the end, they did not get what they were after. Someone said that the hospital management protected me, but I know it was Master who protected me. I was not afraid when the police came since I deeply understood that I did not do anything bad. I was saving sentient beings who were deceived by the CCP's lies. I was doing the most righteous and divine things in the universe. It is the evil who persecuted practitioners and committed crimes against Dafa. It is the evil that should be scared and put on trial.

Certainly, I need to quickly find the shortcomings in my xinxing and rectify them within the Fa. I always firmly believe in Master and the Fa. As long as we are steadfast about saving sentient beings, we will not deviate from the Fa. As long as we act righteously, Master will protect us. Master has protected me many times. Below are a few examples.

Once, I was talking to a middle-aged couple when a young man came in, who might have been their son. I continued clarifying the truth. The young man said, “You practice Falun Gong. Do you know who I am? I work at the 610 Office. Aren't you afraid of me reporting you?” I said, “I practice Falun Gong. I don't care who you work for. You are another person in the world. I used my medical skill to save your father's life. I also want to tell your parents about the miracle that Falun Gong can eliminate illness and strengthen the body. I want to help you understand that there is nothing wrong with Falun Gong. Falun Gong has been persecuted. It is good for you to understand the truth.” The young man did not want to hear what I said and walked away angrily. Although I was not afraid at that time, my mind was still not steadfast afterwards. Then, I sent forth righteous thoughts to thoroughly eliminate the old forces' arrangements.

The next day at work, a male stranger called my name and gave me a pack of truth-clarifying materials. I hesitated, thinking, “Is this the police trying to trick me?” I did not think about it too much and decided to clarify the truth to hospital management. I called the head of the hospital a few times but nobody answered. Then I called the deputy leader and told him that I wanted to talk to him. He said that he was about to go to the countryside and asked me to wait until a later time. I was awakened and realized that Master was trying to tell me something. The next day, the deputy leader asked me what was wrong. I said it was just a small thing and there was no need to bother him anymore. I realized that my fear of being persecuted took control. When practitioners don't have righteous thoughts and are not in line with the Fa, the evil will take advantage. Later I confirmed that it was actually a practitioner who was sending me the truth-clarifying materials. If it weren't for Master enlightening and protecting me, I don't know how much loss I could have caused to Dafa.

2. Influencing My Husband With Compassion and Turning Him Into a Good Person

My family appeared to be very happy to the outside world. However, my husband had a violent temper, which often terrified me. In addition, he was constantly immersed in the communist party's culture and his moral standard declined accordingly. When we were young, I went out of town to study and he had affairs with other women. He already had a bad temper. Then he was driven by temptation and became more restless. Before I started to cultivate Dafa, I was constantly verbally abused. He frequently lost his temper and threw things around the house. Sometimes he even beat me, especially after he became drunk. Although I endured it, I did so helplessly since I could not win trying to fight and argue with him. I endured while shedding tears and with bitterness in my heart.

After I started to cultivate in Dafa, I truly understood the meaning of life and used “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” to guide my words and actions. I also learned to look inward and realized that I had the selfish mentality of pride and arrogance. I always thought that I was better than him in many ways, and that he should treat me well. I did not look after him like a wife should. On the other hand, I understood within the Fa that I may owe him a debt from a previous life that I must repay. I also understood that everything a practitioner encounters is related to cultivation and improving oneself during cultivation. After I found the reason, I let go of all my human notions. I cared for him in everyday life. I did more housework. When he scolded me, I pretended not to hear anything. I never fought back. When he smashed things, I just cleaned it up. I understood he was helping me improve my xinxing. Sometimes when he scolded me, he suddenly stopped and asked me why I did not speak and was not angry. I said, “Why should I be angry if you give me good things?” Then I explained to him that scolding and beating people actually gives them virtue in exchange for his own. He did not speak anymore. Sometimes he wanted to get angry. But then he stopped and said, “I really admire your tolerance. I need to learn to tolerate.” I told him that my kindness and tolerance were taught by Master. I asked him to compare me with the girlfriends he's had and asked him who was kinder and had more tolerance. He agreed with what I said.

With my influence of compassion, he changed to be kind, gentle and caring. Now he does all the grocery shopping and cooking. When both of us go to work, he usually hurries back home to cook. When I went back home, the dinner was already ready. I could barely hear him shouting anymore. He also no longer sees other women. Although he still hasn't started to cultivate Dafa, he already cultivates himself on the surface. He often did disrespectful things towards Dafa in the past. Now, he often buys fruit, cleans it and puts it in front of Master's photo. Dafa's magnificent power has changed me, my husband and my family.

3. Turning Bad Things To Good

After I was reported to the authorities a few times, I repeatedly experienced interference from my family. Once, a practitioner from the hospital I worked at was persecuted by the evil. My husband could not endure it anymore. After I went back home, my husband beat me for a whole night. He said he wanted me to die and his evil side completely showed up after he became drunk. He didn't listen to me no matter what I said. I knew it was the evil spirit of the communist party controlling him. I sent forth righteous thoughts, but it did not work. Later I realized that instead of sending out righteous thoughts at that moment, I sent out hate.

The next morning, I thought about what I should do as a Falun Dafa practitioner. Master's teaching came to my mind:

“Forbearance (ren) is not cowardice, much less is it resigning oneself to adversity. Dafa disciples’ Forbearance is noble; is the manifestation of beings’ magnificent, indestructible, and diamond-like solidity; is tolerance for the purpose of upholding the truth; and is mercy toward and salvation of beings who still have human nature and righteous thoughts.” (“Beyond the Limits of Forbearance”, Essentials for Further Advancement II)

I could not let the evil continue. It is a predestined relationship to be husband and wife. Within the Fa, I realized I could not divorce as a practitioner. Divorce means I had to kick him out. The consequence would be horrible. I must save him. How should I do it? Master said,

“But a person always has to enlighten on his own to what he should do in the face of tribulations.” (“Path”, Essentials for Further Advancement II)

I realized that my husband's nature is good. It was the old forces and the evil spirits of the communist party using his fear and my sentiment towards him to control him and interfere with me saving sentient beings. They tried to make him commit a crime against Dafa in order to destroy him. As a Falun Dafa practitioner during the Fa-Rectification period, I have the responsibility to save sentient beings, not destroy them. I need to rectify every unrighteous thing. First I need to let go of my emotional attachments towards him as a husband, and instead consider him as a sentient being. I used my compassionate thoughts to figure out how to stop him from committing crimes against Dafa. I needed to expose this thing and use it to clarify the truth and expose how the evil party controls and persecutes sentient beings.

When I went to work the next day, I visited his manager. I let them see the bruise I had and told them, “My husband is a good person and he loves me. The reason this thing happened is not my fault. I followed Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person. There is nothing wrong with it. It is also not my husband's fault. This is all caused by the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong and Jiang Zemin's persecution of Falun Gong. I hope you can see the distinction between good and evil.” The manager nodded frequently and also criticized my husband seriously. My husband then apologized to me. That night, when I went back home, my husband invited a few relatives and friends to come over in order to alleviate the conflict. I pretended to still be mad and did not eat. They all persuaded me to eat. I said I could eat, but they must allow me to speak first. They all agreed. So while they ate dinner, they listened to me clarifying the truth. I told them what Falun Gong is, how to be a good person, how the CCP fabricated lies to deceive the public and persecute Falun Gong practitioners. They all listened very carefully. One person said, “If it were not for the fact that Falun Gong is forbidden, I would practice it, as well.”

Thus, bad things were turned into good things. A dozen people understood the truth. It truly is that wherever there is a problem, that is where we need to clarify the truth.

Above, I only described what I did well. I often felt there is nothing to write about. When I started to write, I felt there was actually a lot to write about. Practitioners go through many things. Master devotes countless efforts for each practitioner, which we couldn't possibly imagine. Recently, I've become lax as the environment turned easier. The desire for comfort is truly like a ruthless killer which has dragged me down. I was really ashamed to face Master. I cannot go on like this anymore. I need to advance diligently, closely follow the progress of Fa-Rectification, and follow Master to return home.

Above are just my personal experiences. Please point out anything inappropriate.
