(Clearwisdom.net) Excerpt: I am a senior female practitioner who didn't know anything about computers. When I read “Break through the Internet blockade using an overseas proxy server” on a flier that taught people how to break through the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Internet blockade, my head just swelled. I wondered where I could buy the “overseas proxy server”, and which store dared to sell it in such an environment. I worried for the people waiting to be saved. Now, I know how to break through the blockade, download information and submit articles online; I also know a lot of computer techniques required to run a materials production site. I supply fliers, pamphlets, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and Teacher's articles to over 100 practitioners. I Teacher's Falun Dafa teachings in mind, and my online experience has always been smooth. The blockade fails to stop me from going online.
- From the author
I am an elderly female practitioner. After I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1999, my stubborn ailments disappeared, including a protruding spinal disc and arthritis. I was able to take care of myself and had the energy of a young man. The persecution of Falun Gong started shortly after I started the practice and my employer and the local police had me jailed several times. I went astray and had doubts, but no matter how the evil forces persecuted me, I continued to study the Fa - it was the first thing I did every morning.
1. Building a Truth Clarification Materials Production Site
In 2001, a practitioner helped me build a truth clarification materials production site at home. I was poor and couldn't afford anything, so I used an outdated mimeograph machine at school to print materials for practitioners. I often worked until one or two in the morning. Later, a practitioner gave me a copy machine which I used to print fliers, pamphlets and Teacher's articles. I relied on other practitioners to give me the original documents. When I read “Break through the Internet blockade using an overseas proxy server” on a flier that taught people how to break through the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Internet blockade, my head just swelled. I wondered where I could buy the “overseas proxy server” and which store dared to sell it in such an environment. I worried for the people waiting to be saved.
I knew nothing about computers but printed the materials by myself. There was no one to ask for help. I didn't ask for help from the practitioner who'd supplied me with documents to print, because I knew that he needed to keep quiet on many things.
2. Like Brand New
In the spring of 2009, for some reason I lost the supply of materials to print. I thought that I really needed a computer to get on the Internet. With such determination, Teacher helped me. A relative suddenly offered to give me his old computer. A practitioner who knew computers helped me set it up and taught me how to operate it. He taught me step by step, and wrote down all the directions on a notepad. He told me to click the “the little pigeon” icon on the screen, so I did. I had no idea what “the little pigeon” was, I just knew that by doing so, I could get on Minghui (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net), read about Teacher, and download information.
Three days later, I'd just clicked “the little pigeon” when I suddenly realized, “Ah! This is the Free Gate, the tool to break the Internet blockade, and I didn't have to buy it from a store!” At that moment, I felt as if I'd lost a human shell from head to toe. Teacher gave me the wisdom, and suddenly I understood a lot. I was so excited and overjoyed that I clapped my hands for a long time. I thanked our majestic and compassionate Teacher. I was an elderly practitioner who knew nothing about computers, yet was now able to download and submit materials online, and type and send in statements of the names of people who quit the CCP and its affiliate organizations. I also knew a lot of computer techniques required to run a Dafa materials production site.
One time, I wanted to make some materials but the computer wouldn't turn on. I remembered what Teacher said:
“To put it frankly, no matter how advanced a computer is, it is still no match for the human brain, which to this day remains an unfathomable enigma.” (“Lunyu” from Zhuan Falun)
As soon as I'd realized that human brains made the computers, I quickly turned on the computer. From then on, each time before I went online, I reminded myself that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, the leading character in this world, with missions and responsibilities.
“You've got to try hard, and you've got to do well, because what you want is to consummate everything, and you have responsibilities--you have come with the mission and responsibility of saving sentient beings.” (“Touring North America to Teach the Fa in 2002”)
I kept Teacher's words firmly in mind, and the evil was never able to block me from getting on or browsing online.
3. Study the Fa Every Morning with a Tranquil Mind
I knew that all these capabilities came from the wisdom that Teacher had provided me. I woke up every day at 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. to study. No matter how busy I was, I prioritized Fa study.
“Even now some people still can’t concentrate when it comes to reading the books. Those of you who do work for Dafa, especially, shouldn’t use any pretexts to conceal your not reading the books or studying the Fa. Even if you do work for me, your Master, you still need to study the Fa every day with a calm mind and cultivate yourself solidly.” (“Towards Consummation” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I kept Teacher's words in mind and knew the importance of studying the Falun Dafa teachings. I prioritized Fa study and cultivation practice over making truth clarification materials.
I do not slack off in sending righteous thoughts. I stop whatever I'm doing at the global times to send righteous thoughts. In addition to the four global times, I send righteous thoughts an extra four to five times a day.
I provide fliers, pamphlets, the Nine Commentaries, Minghui Weekly and Teacher's articles to over 100 practitioners. I hope that the practitioners who are capable of getting online but have not yet done so, should do it immediately and not wait for others' help. As long as you can access Clearwisdom.net, you will see Teacher sitting there meditating and compassionately protecting us - every day. It is Teacher's wish that the truth clarification materials production sites bloom everywhere.
Time passes as fast as a meteor flying through the sky. There are still many people waiting to be saved. As a housewife, I prioritize Falun Dafa in all my activities. With Teacher's compassionate protection, I have produced materials for ten years. No matter how dangerous the environment was, I was never interfered with. Every week, I delivered the materials to other practitioners on time. I have done what I should do as a practitioner. I quietly fulfill my duty and carry out my vows, until the day I return to my true home with Teacher.
Greetings to Revered Teacher.
Heshi to fellow practitioners.
