(Clearwisdom.net) I am 62 years old, and started to practice Falun Gong in 1998. I consider myself a senior practitioner. Master has held my hand and led me through thirteen years' of cultivation practice. Every step was under his protection and hence there were many miracles. I shed tears whenever I think of them. No words can express my gratitude to Master.
1. Learning to Read
I never went to school and was illiterate. When I first started practicing, I just did the exercises with others. After watching Master's video lecture series, I learned that I should study the Fa. Practitioners asked me to study the Fa with them. While they read the Fa, I would look at the book and try to follow them line-by-line, but I could not keep up. They then helped me sentence by sentence. When I could not get a sentence after going over it nine times, they became anxious and so did I. How could I trouble practitioners like that? Then I studied Hong Yin. When I was able to recite it by memory, I began learning words. I learned from every one around me and then I began to know more and more words. Two years later, I was able to read Zhuan Falun. Once I had such a desire, Master took care of it for me.
Before I was able to read, I had just one copy of Zhuan Falun and one copy of Hong Yin. After I was able to read, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. It was very difficult to get Dafa books. I lived in countryside while my daughter-in-law lived downtown in the county. Although it was more then ten miles, I went there frequently. One day, I was on my way home holding my grandson and carrying some bags. Several vehicles passed me but none offered me a ride. I had to ask someone to hail a cab from the parking lot. Once I got into the car, I wanted to clarify the truth to passengers. Then they said that one of the passengers had Dafa books at their home, so I went there with him. I talked about how wonderful Dafa was on the way and he agreed. He gave me seven of Master's books. I wanted to pay him the full price but he refused and only took 30 yuan.
2. Benefits from Cultivation Practice
I have experienced many benefits practicing cultivation. Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had many illnesses, such as high blood pressure, cervical spondylosis, gynecological diseases, and sequela after tubal sterilization, which was extremely painful. After I practiced cultivation, all my diseases were gone in a month. Today, I am free of illness and never take medicine.
My husband got sick and was diagnosed with gallbladder polyps on a Tuesday. Since our daughter worked in the hospital, the operation was scheduled for a Friday and the cost was 3,900 yuan. I told him to say, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.” He said these words for two days. On Friday, he went to the hospital and his new examination showed that he was fine. He said, “Dafa is truly amazing.”
My family is not rich. My son worked downtown and he bought a motorcycle for the commute. He paid more than 20,000 yuan for it. After he had bought the bike, he rode home and parked it in an empty room. Perhaps a thief had followed him home, but that night, a thief broke the window and entered the room. Then he opened the door and took the motorcycle. When I got up the next morning to do the exercises, I found the motorcycle was gone and I was very upset. I remembered that Master said, “If something is yours, you will not lose it. If something is not yours, you will not have it even if you fight for it.” (Zhuan Falun) So, I went on to exercise. While doing the Falun Standing Stance at 4:00 a.m., I prayed, “Master please help me to find the motorcycle.” My son went to report the theft after breakfast. A breakfast vendor was also going to report something. He had found a motorcycle. It was the one stolen from my son. The vendor said that he got up at 4:00 a.m. to prepare breakfast and heard someone talking in front of his door. He also heard the sound of someone trying to pry open a lock. So he cried, “What are you doing?” The thief then ran away and left the motorcycle in front of his door. This all occurred less than a mile from our house. Apparently, the thief could not push it any more when he reached the vendor's home. Wasn't this the protection of Master?
3. Clarifying the Truth
There were many miracles while clarifying the truth and saving the sentient beings. Once I obtained more than a thousand copies of truth clarification materials. I planned to deliver them to every family in the surrounding buildings. At night I would climb to the sixth floor of a building and then make my way down passing out materials. There were two families on each floor and I delivered twelve copies to each building. The materials glowed in the darkness on many occasions and I was surprised and happy. I knew Master's fashen was looking after me. Although I was tired and my clothes were wet after every delivery lap, I was delighted from my efforts to save people. I delivered all of the materials in seven days.
I began to clarify the truth and encouraging people to quit the CCP with my acquaintances. I knew a veteran in the neighboring village who used to be a company commander. But, I did not know where his home was. I wanted to see him and I ran into him as soon as I arrived at the village. It was as if he was waiting there for me. We went to his home and I talked about the goodness of Dafa and how the CCP persecuted practitioners. I also gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and truth clarification materials. He accepted all of what I gave him. When I re-visited him a month later I said, “Now that you have read the materials it should be clear why you should quit the CCP.” He said, “Wait for another time.” I said, “Don't miss this opportunity. Time waits for no one. What are you waiting for? Quit today.” He was surprised that an illiterate village lady would say such a thing. He answered right away, “I quit. I will quit today. He quit both the CCP and the Youth League.”
Most of the time, clarifying the truth and encouraging people to quit the CCP went well. I was able to help many people quit on every trip. There were times, things did not go so smoothly. Once a mother and her young child walked towards me. I stepped forward, gave the boy a truth clarification booklet, and said, “Read this and give it your attention. It will help.” His mother ordered him in a loud voice to discard it, and then shouted at me. As I was picking up the booklet that he threw away, I tried to explain to her. Instead of listening, she shouted louder. While I was sending righteous thoughts, I looked within. I said to her, “I am sorry, I did not handle this right.” She immediately changed her disposition and said, “It is ok.” She then took the booklet and agreed with what I said.
4. Wishes Come True
One day a grandmother had taken her grandson to play on the square. The grandson fell, hit his head hard, and a big bump appeared on his head. The child started to cry and the grandmother was worried. I held the boy and gently touched the bump, saying, “Don't cry. It doesn't hurt.” The boy stopped crying and the bump disappeared. The grandmother told everyone, “These practitioners are amazing. The boy stopped crying once she held him. The bump disappeared once she touched it.” Hence, some people called me “Falun Gong” when they saw me. They were willing to listen to me clarify the truth.
Actually, these incidents were all done by Master's fashen. I just offered my mouth and fingers.
My experience has been that as long as I firmly trust in Master and the Fa, and have enough righteous thoughts, my wishes come true.
On Children's Day, June 1, 2011, I took my grandson to a school activity. I noticed that he was wearing a red scarf and asked him to take it off. At first, he did not obey me because he was worried about the possibility of being criticized by his teacher. A student who was not wearing a red scarf happened to pass by. Then he took his red scarf off. Before they went up on the stage for their program, his teacher told all of the students to take off their red scarfs. Tears came to my eyes because I knew only Master could make that happen. Thank you Master.
I would like to mention cultivating xinxing before I conclude. I had a bad temper, a narrow heart, and a strong personality before practicing cultivation. My husband and I had a bad relationship. Fights and quarrels were common, and I never lost. When we quarreled, I would fight until I was satisfied. When we fought, I would always win. I completely changed after practicing cultivation and I no longer fought back when he punched me. I figured that I might owe him that. One day our grandson was eating steamed buns for breakfast and asked for ketchup. My husband gave him some but our grandson was not happy. When I told my husband that he should not do it like that, he got angry. Before he took the child to school, he parked his bike and came back inside and hit me several times. I calmly said, “Go now. Otherwise, he will be late.” I thought to myself, I would have never handled the incident this way if this had happened before cultivation.
I have many stories. How glorious and what fortune to be with Master and to be a practitioner in Fa-rectification. I can only repay Master's mercy by following his words, doing well the three things, and striving to be a genuine Dafa disciple.
