[Selected Submission] Remaining Unmoved While Facing Huge Temptation
Falun Dafa Extended My Life
I was very weak when I was young. When I was two years old, it was discovered that I had a congenital heart disease. The doctor said I would only live to the age of 11 or 12. My parents spoiled me. My brother and sister both tried to make me happy so that my limited years would be happy. Due to my being spoiled for a long time, I became particularly selfish. They knew my poor physical condition, so they did not argue with me on things. When I was 18 years old, my body was still in poor health. In addition to the heart disease, my stomach was not good, and my hands and feet were cold all year. I took a lot of medications.
My colleague's mother talked about Falun Dafa at my workplace in 1996. In the evening she played the exercise music on the school playground, and the children and adults came around to listen. At that time, I did not start practicing, but I felt that the atmosphere was very harmonious and peaceful.
A Dafa disciple lived upstairs. At that time I was pregnant, and it was not convenient for me to walk around. In addition, my husband was not at home. She often helped me to buy food, etc. From her behavior, I understood that Falun Dafa is good.
In August 1998 I was transferred to a new workplace. I saw that one of my colleagues often read books. When I saw her open book, I said, "Isn't this Falun Dafa? This practice is pretty good. After practicing Falun Dafa, a bad person could become a good person!” She said, "Take a good look at it, it is really a treasured book." After I read more than a dozen pages of Zhuan Falun, I began to have diarrhea; I went to the bathroom 12 times in a half-day. This colleague told me, "You are really fortunate. Master is purifying your body!" In the past, such diarrhea would make me lie down, but this time it I did not have the feeling of discomfort from diarrhea. I experienced that Dafa is supernormal, and I began to practice.
Not long after I started to practice, my insomnia disappeared, and I no longer had nightmares. Master not only helped me to purify my body many times, but to enhance my cultivation confidence, He let me see the golden shining words and the large and small, colorful rapid rotation of Falun. With the practice, my various diseases soon disappeared completely. I really experienced the taste of no disease.
In the Difficult Years
One day in July 2001, personnel from the Domestic Security Team came to my workplace to harass me, trying to force me to write the guarantee letter to not practice anymore. At that time the heads of my workplace were very scared, so they all tried to persuade me to give up my belief. They also had my family come in turns to persuade me. They put pressure on me from all sides. I was not afraid and told them about the great changes in me after my practice and the beauty of Dafa.
The police took me to the police department and detained me in a small cell. My mother brought my daughter to force me to give up my belief. My three-year-old daughter used her small hands to shake the iron railing and shout, "Mom, you come out, and we go home!" My husband was in tears to persuade me. The two guards were also in tears and said, "Take this time to write it, and then you can go back home." I replied, "Before my practice of Falun Dafa, I was full of sickness. Master gave me a healthy body and let me understand the truth in life. It is absolutely impossible to force me to slander Master and Dafa. The propaganda broadcast on TV is framing Falun Dafa, and it is false." The next day they extorted 5,000 yuan from my family and then let me go back home.
I lost the environment of group Fa-study. In addition, my family members often monitored me and did not let me study the Fa or do the exercises. Benevolent Master did not let me fall down and used various ways to enlighten me. Once, I dreamed the scene of a lot of fellow practitioners soaring in the daytime. Because I did not cultivate well, I fell behind. At that time I sat on the ground to cry. My mother woke up from my crying and ran to my bedroom to wake me up. I sat up still crying. My mother asked me why I cried so sadly. I replied, "They all finished their cultivation and flew away, leaving me here.” My mother was in tears and said, "I will not interfere with you in the future!” When I am not diligent and unclear about Fa principles, Master always arranged for different fellow practitioners to remind and help me.
Remaining Unmoved While Facing Huge Temptation
In order to be promoted, my husband's subordinate brought 20,000 yuan to my home on an occasion when my husband was not at home. At that time, we had just moved into our new home and really needed money. However, I am a Dafa disciple, so I sincerely said to him, "I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. My Master told us about the relationship between gain and loss; so please quickly take back the money.” I mentioned to him that Falun Dafa teaches people to cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also talked about the persecution and the great changes after my practicing Falun Dafa. He was deeply touched. Later, he deserved the position because of his job performance.
I saw him again at a dinner party. He asked his many subordinates to give me a toast. I was enthusiastic to greet them and told them the truth of Falun Dafa. Some people asked me the questions that they did not understand, and I replied to them one by one. They all listened very seriously.
A cadre from my husband's unit wanted my husband to help him get promoted to deputy head. Unfortunately my husband was not at home then. So I served them. I thought: “I heard you were in the position of the evil party's secretary; so this opportunity is for me to save you.” I talked about the beauty of Dafa, the Tiananmen Square Self-immolation, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. We talked until 11 pm. This couple both quit the CCP. Before leaving, he thanked me again and again. Not long after his leaving my home, he got the blessing and was promoted to deputy head.
One time, my husband's colleague gave us a box of persimmons. After leaving, he gave us a call, "There are bad persimmons in the box, you need to pick them out." We opened the box and found 10,000 yuan. We returned all the money to him.
A cadre in my husband's unit sent a gift card from the Agriculture Bank to us, containing 50,000 yuan. I said, "It was not easy for you to earn this money; please take the money back and work hard.” He still would not take the card back. I told him, "I am practicing Falun Dafa and am being a good person according to the the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance; so we definitely would not want this money!" I also talked about the CCP's corruption in today's society and the conflicts taking place between one another. I said only Dafa can rectify people's hearts. He nodded and finally quit the CCP and took back his bank card.
There were some contents that slandered Dafa in students' textbooks. This has poisoned many students. When the students left school, I handed truth-clarification materials to them. Once my daughter found out, she gave me a thumbs-up.
One Person Practices, and the Whole Family Benefits
One day when my daughter was in third grade, she was walking home from school, and a motorcycle on the road hit her severely and threw her three or four meters. At that time my daughter fainted due to the sudden shock. The driver sped away. My daughter's classmates kept shouting her name. After a while, she opened her eyes, sat up, and rubbed her eyes. She said, "I just felt like someone was holding me while I slept for a while." By this time, many people had gathered around and were suggesting to call her parents quickly and go to the hospital to see if she is OK. My daughter stood up and said, "I'm fine." And then she went home, carrying her bag. Such a small child was knocked so far; she was only scraped on the hand. If Master had not protected her, the consequences would really have been disastrous.
When my sister came to my house, she reported that she had a toothache for a long time. I clarified the truth to her and helped her to quit the CCP. And then I asked her to recite these words from her heart, "Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." The next day she got up and told me that the previous night she recited, “Dafa is good” to fall asleep. She dreamed that an infusion tube sucked out the purulence from her body. After she woke up she did not have a toothache anymore. Instead, she had the taste of pus and blood. She went to the bathroom to rinse her mouth, and she spit out a lot of dirty things.
My 70-year-old parents, my husband, and my daughter all know that Dafa is good and support me to practice Falun Gong.
Falun Dafa enabled me to completely change. Just as Master said, “Directly working on our hearts, we cultivate the Fa; Pure lotuses in the secular world can't be tainted.” (“The Approach to Cultivation” in Hong Yin) Let me express my appreciation for Master's benevolent salvation.
