Truly Understanding That I Have Come for Falun Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) I have experienced many of the phenomena that Master talks about in Zhuan Falun, such as the cosmic language, bigu, qigong treatment, martial arts qigong, stealing qi, collecting qi, etc. Upon reading Zhuan Falun, I came to understand many issues about life, and I understood that I have come here for Falun Dafa. Since then, my life has moved in a more meaningful direction. The old me used to be aloof and cynical, but after practicing Falun Gong I became confident and tolerant.
Not long after I started practicing Falun Gong, I experienced one of the phenomena Master mentioned in his teachings. I saw a very interesting children's bicycle in a mall, so I went up and touched it. To my great surprise, it broke at my touch. I have experienced many miraculous incidents in my daily life. Several times I forgot to take my apartment key or office key with me. So I turned some other random key in the lock, and the door opened. I thought the key might be universally applicable. But when I used it again later, it did not work at all. Once I left a kettle of water on a gas stove for three and a half hours while I was out for business. The stove and its ventilation fan were deformed, but there was still a little water left in the kettle when I returned; it wasn't dry and didn't catch on fire. Several times, hot oil splashed onto my hand and burned it. I told myself as a Falun Dafa disciple that it was no big deal. It turned out that I did not feel the pain at all, and my hand recovered very quickly. Once I was poisoned by gas. I fell over and my head bumped into the corner of an iron plate. I once fell off the bed and scraped my face, and once fell down the stairs. But I was not hurt at all in any of the incidents.
I remember when I was little, there was a painting over our oven portraying divine beings descending from the heavens. When I knew how to use the Internet, I looked it up online. The one in my memory was exactly the same as that online. I asked my parents, but they denied firmly that we once had such a painting. Sometimes, I undergo the elimination of karma, although it actually seldom happens. During this period, I truly felt that the condition was transient. As long as I have righteous thoughts, study the Fa and practice the exercises diligently, I can overcome it quickly. However, sometimes I think with human notions. For example, I tell myself that if I don't feel well, just have more rest and practice the exercises tomorrow. Then the next day I still don't want to do the exercises, so the phenomenon lasts a long time.
Before I started cultivation, I was very lazy. It was common that I slept for more than ten hours a day. Sometimes, even when I was not sleepy, I still lied on the bed. It seemed that nothing was important to me. However, since I started cultivation, being lazy has become a huge obstacle on my cultivation path. I know what I need to do as required by Falun Dafa, but I often fail to do the three things well due to sleep.
Our benevolent Master never gives up on us, even when we sometimes do not do a good job. He is around us, taking care of us every minute and every second. He encourages me, enlightens me and helps me overcome my obstacles. Sometimes, He comes into my dreams to remind me. I see other dimensions and my predestined relationships with my relatives and friends. Sometimes, in my dreams, I see somebody walk in front me, or hear clashing sounds, door bells ringing, or dogs barking. I then wake up, just in time to send forth righteous thoughts.
One time, at midnight, I was too sleepy to keep awake. I almost could not sit and felt very itchy. I scratched my body for a while, lay down, then came up again. This state lasted for a long time. I almost forgot what I wanted to do. Then suddenly, I heard Master's sigh. I regained my awareness. I realized that I just missed the time for sending forth righteous thoughts. I felt very bad, and I was too embarrassed to face Master and his benevolence.
Once I went to see a friend. With the purpose of protecting myself, I made up some excuses in my mind. I knew it was not right, but I found it necessary to tell lies. When I was about to leave home, I fell to the floor with my hands in my pockets. I did not know what happened.
When I am at work, faced with all kinds of corruption and unfair treatment by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), I look at things from the perspective of heaven's destruction of the CCP and cosmic changes. I have realized that I need to hold myself accountable for my words and actions. I need to handle every single job with a peaceful heart. I need to get rid of my attachments toward fame and personal gain, gradually and from the bottom of my heart. I have been following the above. Instead of losing anything, I have been promoted to a civil worker. This position is regarded by others as a desirable one, and everyone is eager to get it. Regarding personal gain and emotions, I have experienced ups and downs that ordinary people cannot endure. With Master's benevolence and constant care, everything has turned out for the best.
During this process, I have also realized that nothing happens by accident on the cultivation path. No matter how painful the process is, we Falun Dafa disciples will temper ourselves and mature. It is a process that helps us get rid of every single attachment of ours. We don't lose anything during the process. I truly understand the Fa from the angle of “the appearance stems from the mind.” When I get rid of my attachments, everything will change. The Fa-rectification process depends on whether Falun Dafa disciples mature or not.
I am the general secretary of a department. Once there was a Communist Party Conference, and every party member was asked to repeat the vows to join the party. I was not prepared before the conference, so I did not know this was part of the proceedings. At the beginning, I just kept my mouth shut. Later I decided to start sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil and rotten demons, and all substances of the Communist Party. At the end of the conference, they were about to play the communist anthem, The Internationale. I sent forth one powerful righteous thought: Don't allow it to play! As a result, the machine playing the music stopped abruptly.
Previously, I did not know how to use a computer. I felt dizzy and uncomfortable in front of a computer. After starting cultivation, I have gradually gotten rid of those bad notions and set up a family production site for printing truth-clarification materials and burning CDs. I can also do the maintenance of equipment, install systems, and do simple repair work. Sometimes I really cannot handle the problems, so I calm down and try something new. It actually works. This is how I've learned to use computers. I have fully experienced how Falun Dafa inspires disciples' wisdom. As Falun Dafa disciples, we can do everything.
Once a practitioner and I went to a financial district in downtown to hand out truth-clarification materials. We agreed that she would stay close by to send forth righteous thoughts to clear the environment, and I went into buildings to distribute fliers. We carried a bag full of truth-clarification materials and sent forth righteous thoughts while walking. It was only 8:30 p.m. When we got there, and it was summer, so it was not dark yet. The street was still bustling with people. I thought: “We are early. Why not walk around?”
We went to a nearby dorm. The skies were clear when we arrived, but now it started to be cloudy and windy. Thunder came. Before long the rain fell. All the people on the street rushed into buildings for shelter. There were a lot of people in the shop near the dorms. I quickly taped truth-clarification materials onto residents' doors one by one, while sending forth righteous thoughts. We walked six or seven blocks, until all of the materials were used up. We did not see a single person during the whole process. I felt that I was doing something extremely sacred, and that I was in a completely different world. As soon as we were done, the rain stopped. I felt extremely grateful.
Through sharing with fellow practitioners, I have realized that every one of us has the same feeling: We came to this world for Falun Dafa. We have been waiting for it for a very long time. Now it is the Fa-rectification period, the most precious time. Let's cultivate ourselves diligently and fulfill our vows. Master, please be assured that we will be more and more diligent and never be unworthy of Master's benevolent salvation.
