Oral Ulcer Disappears after Cultivation of Speech
For a long time, I have had a shallow understanding of Master's Fa regarding “cultivation of speech.” I thought it meant merely not saying something that would affect fellow practitioners' cultivation, and to keep the location of truth-clarifying material sites secret. However, I did not know that even in ordinary society, we cannot say whatever we want and we should be truthful in our speech.
In daily life, when I interact with my classmates, I feel that we are familiar with each other, so I do not restrict what I want to say. I will say anything that I want, such as making over-the-top jokes, making remarks that will hurt people (even when I know that it will be hurtful), and making promises in order to make others happy, but forgetting about it afterward. All of these are manifestations of my not cultivating my speech. Because I didn't pay attention to it, I accumulated karma in this way.
So, I frequently suffer from oral ulcers. When it happens, it is so painful. When the condition was very serious, I had to use painkillers to alleviate the pain, which also shows that I do not trust Master and the Fa steadfastly.
Later on, I realized that I should look for the loopholes in my cultivation. I tried to find my attachment according to Master's teachings, and then I found my problem. When I enlightened to this Fa principle, the oral ulcer disappeared the next day. I witnessed Dafa's power, and I know it is Master who removed the karma for me.
I hope that others who have similar problems with cultivation of speech will also take it very seriously.
Firmly Believing that Dafa Can Eliminate Evil Beings
My daughter is 40 years old, and she obtained the Fa before July 20, 1999. When the persecution first started, she didn't go out to validate the Fa because of her human notions. She started to do Fa-study more attentively during the next two years. However, she didn't regard herself as a cultivator when problems occurred. She was interfered with by human emotions, and suspected that her husband was having an affair. All that led to her main consciousness becoming unclear.
I told her to read the Fa lectures. In the beginning, she couldn't even utter a word. Then I read the following paragraph to her.
“'I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them'--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved. When you can really do that, not just saying it but putting it into action, Master will definitely stand up for you. What's more, there are lots of Fa guardians around Master, there are lots of Buddhas, Daos, and Gods, and there are even greater beings, and they will all participate, because forced persecution that's not acknowledged is a crime, and the cosmos's old laws don't allow it either--irrational persecution absolutely is not allowed, and the old forces don't dare to do it if that is the situation.” (“Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)
I had only read the first sentence and hadn't yet started the second one, when my daughter suddenly said, “I'm fine now. But I feel as if I want to cry.” She understood clearly that she was wrong and that the evil had taken advantage of her loopholes. If it were not for Dafa, who knows how long she would have been interfered with.
My personal understanding is that this paragraph has played a great role in eliminating the evil for those who have enlightened along an evil path, those who are in the state of confusion, or those who are interfered with by evil beings from other dimensions. It enabled us to help fellow practitioners get through the tribulations and walk their cultivation path well.
Let us truly believe in Master and Dafa. When we have this righteous thought, it has almighty power.
