Selection from Call for Articles: I Downloaded Files from the Falun Dafa Website When My Computer Was Not Connected to the Internet
(Clearwisdom.net) I have practiced Falun Dafa since March 1996. Prior to that I had many health problems and my weight had dropped to only 118 pounds. I also had a hot temper. After three months of cultivation all my illnesses disappeared and I gained 20 pounds. Many of my friends started practicing Falun Gong after they witnessed my significant mental and physical changes.
While I watched one of Master's video lectures during the time of my initial cultivation I experienced Guanding, but I didn't know what it was. I merely felt a warm, comfortable current flow through my body. From then on I consistently practiced the Falun Gong exercises in the mornings and participated in Fa group study in the evenings. I realized the importance of Fa study. I read Zhuan Falun whenever I had time. I memorized Lunyu word-by-word, and gradually the whole book of Zhuan Falun occupied my mind. Reading the book over and over again has built a solid foundation for me to cultivate on the right track.
I once went with another practitioner to a county far away from our town where we distributed Falun Gong materials to all neighborhoods. It was already dark, and we didn't see people or cars on the streets. On our way back we continued posting flyers on walls. It was a miracle that we saw a van parked in front us just when we had finished our tasks and we asked the driver to give us a ride. He had a friend with him. The driver first told us that he was waiting for someone, but after we got into the van he changed his mind and started taking us home. We knew this was Master’s arrangement. It was the time of the SARS epidemic, when all vehicles were being inspected. The driver and his friend reminded us not to speak when the van approached a check-point because we were not native and had a different accent.
A guard stopped the van and asked who we were. The driver responded, “They are with us from the same village.” “Is everything all right?” asked the guard. “Yes!” said the driver. Finally, the guard said, “You can go now.” With Master’s arrangement we returned home safely.
Another time we were distributing Dafa materials in a residential apartment building. When I attempted to locate the other practitioner, I mis-stepped on the stairs and fell all the way down. I tried to get up quickly, but failed to do so. My feet had twisted 180-degrees. My first thought was to ask Master for strength. I was here to save more people and deliver Dafa materials to people who might have a predestined relationship with Dafa. No evildoers could interfere with my righteous action. I ordered my feet to turn back to the correct position, and they did. I didn't even think about fractures. It was just like Master said in Zhuan Falun,
"...good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences."
My feet shook when I stood up. I ordered them, “You must walk straight!” Slowly but surely, I could walk naturally. I did not feel pain throughout the whole process. Under Master’s great protection I completed the material deliveries. The next day when I got up my swollen feet were purple and black. They could not even fit into my shoes. I chose to ignore it and started my daily routine. I cooked breakfast for the family and took care of my granddaughter. My feet were back to normal in three days.
My home phone did not have caller ID. During the past few years, evildoers have frequently interfered with me by making frequent phone calls to my home. I had a thought one day that it would be nice if I could see the callers' numbers, and I would not pick up the call if it came from evildoers. I pushed several keys on the phone, and to my surprise I was able to see all incoming caller IDs. It was miracle. How could I, a sixty-seven year old woman, do this? This must be the power of Dafa.
There was something even more amazing. Being a cultivator during the Fa rectification time, I was able to learn how to get online and download Dafa material from the website. The first time that I tried to get on the Internet I could not connect, but I refused to condone this illusion, and asked Master for help. I insisted on downloading Dafa materials from the Internet. With my righteous thoughts, I was able to download files, even when the computer screen message showed that the Internet was disconnected. I knew that this was Master encouraging me.
I still have a way to go before I am up to Dafa's standard. I will cultivate diligently and do the three things well. I thank Master for His compassionate salvation.
