(Minghui.org) I find teaching very relaxing nowadays, while still being able to achieve good results easily. Never before had I experienced this, even when I was young and energetic. Through my cultivation in Falun Dafa, my intellect, vocal abilities, flexibility and memory have improved to such an astonishing level that even I am surprised.

The fact that I cultivate in Falun Dafa is known to almost all of the teachers and officials at my school, and throughout all these years I have been steadily doing the three things that all practitioners need to do. From 2004 to 2008, I produced truth-clarification materials at home and advised people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations while distributing truth-clarification materials—all without encountering any form of interference. I strongly believe in Master and the Fa.

Master said,

“My roots are all deeply planted in the universe, and if someone could affect you, he could affect me, and to put it directly, he’d be able to affect the universe.” (Zhuan Falun)

Telling the Truth to Students

My biggest challenge is this: I am a history teacher, and as part of my job, I teach CCP History.

Master said,

“It is definitely not wrong to explain the facts of our situation to the Chinese government in a peaceful manner. As cultivators, however, we should absolutely not adopt any over-zealous approach or speech. Over the past year, you have clarified the truth and appealed to the people of the world and governments with goodwill, and you have done this in a righteous manner.” (“An Announcement” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)

Gradually I discovered that, as long as I hold myself to the standards of a practitioner, clarifying the facts about Falun Dafa during class is really not difficult. As long as I present the facts truthfully, the regime's falsely manufactured lies will crumble on their own. The only challenge we face is having the courage to speak the truth, and how to present it in a compassionate, intellectual and rational way.

Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is the most accurate historical record. After reading it, I was no longer uncertain about my occupation, but instead I saw a great opportunity to openly clarify the facts about the CCP to everyone, and save my students in the process. I felt that even if they only managed to understand a small part of the truth, or if only one student accepted it, they would be very fortunate. After listening to my “CCP History” lesson, students definitely understand the true nature of the CCP. Then, if they receive our truth-clarification materials, wouldn't it be easier for them to accept the facts?

I view every lesson that I present to my students as a precious opportunity to clarify the facts. I've studied the relevant chapters of the Nine Commentaries and gone online to research materials. I've used all possible ways and means to expose the true nature of the CCP. I've objectively and thoroughly discussed the facts, appealing to the kind nature and conscience of my students, and distributed Falun Dafa materials to them. I can visibly see the changes in my students after they read our truth-clarification materials.

The Power of Compassion

Of course, it has not been all smooth sailing. Sometimes the evil takes advantage of the loopholes when I do not handle things well. Once, while talking about the cruel persecution suffered by Christians in the past, my nose suddenly started to bleed. I knew this was due to evil interference, and left the classroom to send forth righteous thoughts in the washroom. My nose bleed soon stopped.

I also faced the troublesome problem of examinations. The classes I taught were usually ranked last in the entire school, because the contents of my lessons were vastly different from those required in exam papers. As a result, my salary was cut for a period of time for poor performance. I was very troubled at that time and searched within myself, discovering my attachments to benefits and fame. Hence, I made up my mind to continue sharing the truth with my students. After I let go of my attachments, in retrospect this problem seemed very insignificant, and the school quietly changed its policy.

One student called me a “dissenter.” I smilingly replied, “Nowadays in modern society, it is very normal to voice out our differing opinions, right?” If this had happened before I began cultivating, I would have been very unhappy with this student’s comment, rebuking him severely in response. Cultivating in Dafa has made me more and more mature.

One day, the principal and a group of school officials suddenly came in to listen to my lesson. At the time, I believed this was due to some rumour they had heard. I searched within myself and found attachments to showing off, competitiveness, and even jealousy toward government officials. Faced with so many students and this major inspection, I knew that I could not hold onto my human attachments, and only with true selflessness could I save them. Cultivation is a serious matter, and the old forces keep constant surveillance on practitioners for faults. I should just do what I am supposed to do. After listening to my lesson, the officials and the principal left without taking any action, but I believe they did not listen in vain. I thought, “Since you came here to listen to the truth, then listen, for you will greatly benefit from it.” Now, I believe that these people came in not to create trouble but to listen to the truth.

Surfing the Minghui Website in the Teaching Staff Office

For various reasons, my home has no Internet. Therefore, I usually surf online at school. Once, while I had the Minghui website displayed on my screen, a colleague walked over and clearly saw it. I was a bit scared, because this colleague was the relative of a school official and loves to report any gossip to the authorities. One day, when he paid a visit to my family’s shop, I explained how Dafa had brought me numerous benefits. I also clarified the facts about the persecution of Dafa. Later he said, “I shared with my family members what you told me about the persecution.” He also quit the CCP.

I downloaded documents from the Internet and sent out the names of people who had withdrawn from the CCP, all members of the teaching staff office. Everything went smoothly without a hitch. Even I was amazed.

At that point, due to my attachment of feeling very proud of myself, I suddenly heard my colleagues saying, “Someone in our school is surfing the Minghui website and Public Security officers are now conducting an investigation.” When one school official saw me, he said, “I was just looking for you. Let’s have a chat when we have a free moment.” It was a stressful time.

Master said,

“Of course, you won’t be told when tribulations or conflicts are coming. If you were told everything, how would you cultivate? That would defeat the purpose. They usually come unexpectedly, and only this way will your character be tested, only this way will your character truly improve, and only this way can we tell whether you can guard your character. That’s why conflicts don’t come by chance.” (Zhuan Falun)

I searched within and realized: Hadn't my attachment caused this tribulation? I am doing the most righteous thing, and nobody is qualified to interfere with me. I calmed down and continued to study the Fa, do the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts, and everything went back to normal.

Master said,

“My Law Bodies will protect you all the way until you’re able to protect yourself, and at that point you’ll be on the verge of going beyond Triple-World-Law cultivation and you’ll have attained the Dao. But you have to act as a true cultivator, and only then will you be able to do that.” (Zhuan Falun)

How did I survive in such a dangerous and cruel environment? It is because I am a Dafa disciple, and it is because we have mighty and merciful Master. What we are cultivating is the most fundamental law of the universe. Once again, I thank Master!
