(Clearwisdom.net) I was very ill when I was young. My parents took me to the hospital so often that the doctors there told me that I didn’t need to register when I arrived. My mother started practicing Falun Gong in 1996 and read Dafa books to me every evening. But I didn’t start to practice at that time.

In 1998, when I was six years old, I suffered from pleurisy, which caused me to cry out loud in pain. My father was coaxing me by the side. Suddenly he looked at me and said, “You are a little Dafa disciple and you still cry this way?” Strangely enough, I stopped crying. Later I was taken to the hospital. After my mother brought me back home, I stopped taking medicine and started to do the exercises and study the Fa.

Not long afterward I saw a young person doing the exercises, and she looked exactly like me. After finishing the exercises, I asked my mother if she saw her. My mother said that she didn’t see anyone but me. She then told me that what I saw must have been my Assistant Spirit. I went to the exercise site every morning after that.

Master said,

"Then, in your social activities in past lives, you might once have owed others, bullied others, or committed other wrongdoing. Those creditors will look for you. It is said in Buddhism that one lives because of karmic retribution. If you owe someone something, he will find you for the repayment.” (Zhuan Falun)

One day, when I was nine years old, I ran down a hill while my mother was talking with another practitioner. I fell and tumbled, head first. My head was about to hit a very sharp rock when a force pulled my head back. My frightened mother ran towards me. When she saw the sharp rock, she said, “Master saved you!”

After July 20, 1999, when the persecution started, my mother and I made banners to validate the Fa. We hung the banners in every local, residential area. However, we did not study the Fa well and developed the attachment of “doing things.” The evil took advantage of our loopholes and my mother was arrested in August 2001. I missed her very much and often cried at night.

After four months of being imprisoned, she returned home. When she realized that I hadn’t studied the Fa while she was away, she said, “My daughter, you are always Master’s disciple whether I am with you or not. Never give up practicing!” After that I studied the Fa and did the exercises with my mother every day.

When I was in the sixth grade, my mother was taken into custody again. So I went to the police station where she was being detained. A police officer pulled me into a room and asked me to curse Master. I said, “Why do you ask me to do this? Don’t you guys teach children to be polite? Why do you ask me to curse people?” I didn't cooperate with the police no matter what they asked me. With Master’s protection, I left without incident. While I was leaving, I heard some officers say, “The children of Falun Gong practitioners dare to speak out!”

When I was attending middle school, I remembered that I should do the three things well. I clarified the truth to my classmates and most of them quit the Chinese Communist Party’s Young Pioneers.

I am now a high school student, and I clarify the truth whenever I can. Many of my classmates know, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” However, my righteous thoughts were not strong enough when I clarified the truth on the bus.

My school bus once rear-ended a car in front of us and I was thrown forward. My head hit the front windshield and broke it. I quickly said to myself, “I am a Dafa disciple and I am fine.” When I stood up, I was fine.

Master said,

“...good or evil comes from a person's spontaneous thought...” (Zhuan Falun)

After looking at the damaged windshield, the driver and my father insisted on sending me to the hospital. After I was thoroughly examined, the doctor said that I was fine and that there was nothing to worry about. My mother took advantage of this opportunity and clarified the truth to the people around her.

When I saw my mother doing this, I realized that I hadn't done well in this area of my cultivation. I made a commitment, right then and there, to use every opportunity that arises to save more sentient beings.

I know that am not diligent enough and do not look inward as often as I should. I always fight with my mother about browsing the Internet. I am determined to eliminate all my attachments and do the three things well.

I will do as Master's poem says,

Clarify the truth
rescue the sentient beings
Thoroughly annihilate the Evil
and sweep the entire cosmos clean
(“Cleaning Out” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
