China Fahui | Rapidly Improving Xinxing after Practicing Dafa for Three Years
(Minghui.org) Greetings, compassionate Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!
I'm in my 40s and I began practicing Falun Dafa at the end of September 2010. I'd like to share with you my experiences in cultivation and saving people after I obtained the Fa.
So Excited to Obtain the Fa
When I first began practicing at the end of September 2010, I used every available moment, including waiting for and riding the bus, to read the Fa on my MP4. I really enjoyed studying the Fa and felt so good.
Just by simply reading the Dafa books, my chronic rheumatism, neurosis, depression, and headaches, as well as my deformed vertebra, were all alleviated and cured, and I wasn't even aware of it.
Learning to Look Inward
When I first began practicing, I couldn't contact fellow practitioners and did not yet measure everything with the Fa. Later, gradually, I learned to look inward.
Several months after I started practicing Dafa, when I was writing an article one day, the computer suddenly stopped working. It was the day before the submission deadline. After repeatedly checking, I confirmed that the monitor had broken.
I realized this happened because I had developed the heart of showing off when I was writing. I was so pleased with myself: without help from anyone I went to a big city and made a successful career for myself.
In early spring 2012, the drainpipe in my kitchen clogged. I wondered why. On the surface, of course, it was because some filthy garbage had caught in the pipe, but I also realized it must related to "filthy things" in my environment. I began to search my house and threw away many things that a practitioner should not keep. By dusk, the drain cleared.
Starting a Materials Production Site
With the quick improvement in my health and deepening understanding of the Fa, I urgently wished to tell everyone how wonderful Falun Dafa is. When I called my older sister in my hometown, she didn't believe me, and I got a little angry. Right after the call I realized I was wrong. I lacked a heart of mercy. I decided to apologize to her the next day.
Actually, she called me the next day. I immediately apologized to her and asked if she had a DVD player. She said she did, and I told her I would send her some DVDs to watch.
I figured out how to download materials from the Minghui website, and I also learned to burn DVDs. I contacted fellow practitioners and solved many of my technical problems. I then mailed some information to my sister.
I soon started up my truth-clarification materials production site. Because I run a successful company, my finances are very good. I used all my available time to study the technical aspects of the work so I can teach others.
My Older Sister's Family
No matter where I go, I always clarify the truth. I started with my relatives and friends.
For years, my sister had many health problems. But her ability to understand things was better than I expected: After she read the first lecture of Zhuan Falun she couldn't stop reading. She read every day and learned the exercises by following the DVD. She practiced the exercises every morning. The physical changes in her were amazing and startlingly fast, and every day she looked better than the day before.
She practiced the exercises publicly in the village. The villagers avoided her after they heard she had begun practicing Falun Gong.
However, when people noticed the changes in her and asked how it happened, she told them it was because she began practicing Falun Gong. When the wife of the village Party head heard this, she went to my sister's home and said, "You can't tell others your health improved because you practice Falun Gong, you need to tell them it's because of some medicine." My sister said, "I can't do that. I'm healthy now because of Falun Gong. I can't lie."
My sister threw all her medicines away. She could do any work, and she kept looking younger and younger. Whenever she had time, she talked to her fellow villagers and told them how wonderful Falun Dafa is and asked them to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
For many years my sister's husband thought there was no hope for his family. When he saw his family becoming happier and happier, he began to practice Falun Dafa also, and soon his humpback straightened.
Firm Belief in Master Helps My Sister's Family Pass the Test
In the early summer of 2012, my older sister's 24-year-old son had acute tuberculosis. He continuously ran a high fever and vomited blood.
My sister and her husband explained the Fa principles to their son. They believed only Dafa could save him. Because he witnessed the amazing changes in his parents, my nephew closely cooperated.
They studied the Fa together and got up to do the exercises at 3:00 a.m. In the beginning the son didn't want to get up so early. A few days later, he felt so much better and noticed his physical changes, so he began actively exercising and studying the Fa.
Their son recovered from acute TB in only three months. Now all four members of my sister's family have obtained the Fa.
The changes in my sister's family greatly influenced the village. Many villagers understood the truth and announced their withdrawal from the Party. Some of them read Zhuan Falun and wanted to learn the practice. My sister set up a Fa-study site in her home.
One elderly lady used to have illnesses. After she witnessed the amazing changes in my sister, she went to her home to study the Fa almost every day. Now, she can walk quickly with strong and firm steps! Her entire family has been blessed, and her daughter has begun to study Zhuan Falun as well.
My Cousin's Family
I eventually found my cousin, who had lost contact with us for many years. I realized it was my opportunity to save her.
At the end of January 2012, my cousin and her husband came to my aunt's home, and planned to stay there for only two days. I caught the earliest flight on their first day there and brought them Zhuan Falun.
That summer, my cousin's husband traveled more than 10 hours by train, and came to my home. He stayed at my home for five or six days and spent the entire time watching Dafa-related videos.
Eighteen months later, I called him. He told me he eventually understood Falun Gong. Due to his chronic asthma he could not work. But now, an older man in 70s, he can do manual labor and works harder than his son who is in his 30s. He uses every spare moment to study the Fa by reading the books and listening to the lecture recordings.
In the beginning my cousin did not object, but she did not practice either. Now that she has witnessed the greatness of Dafa, she also wants to know more about Falun Gong.
A High School Principal
At the end of May this year, a friend whom I hadn't seen for years planned to visit the city where I live. I knew it was another chance for me to save people, arranged by Master. I invited him to stay at my home during his visit.
He is an educated man, a retired high school principal. He always had good morals. He's now in his 70s, and very healthy. He knew my health was very bad before and was so happy to see how much I changed. Naturally, we talked about Falun Gong.
I showed him some poems from Hong Yin and Hong Yin II. He felt that Master was really great. When we ate, I played the "2011 Shen Yun Chorus Concert" for him. I also had him read the lyrics in Hong Yin Vol. III. He read attentively and repeatedly praised Master's poems as better than any literati in history.
One morning, as soon as my friend saw me he said, "Can you do me a favor today? Please help me quit the Party!" I said, "Yes, I will help you!"
I had never mentioned the withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations to him before. For thoughtful and decisive people like him, it's better to guide them and let them make their own decisions. I showed him how to do his withdrawal online, so that he could help other people later.
How could I help him obtain the Fa? I asked him to read Master's lecture Touring North America to Teach the Fa. I told him that I was busy that day and had to leave so he could read by himself. He agreed and took the book to his room. After he read, he came out and said, "Now I know Master Li is not an ordinary person. Before, I thought he was a great person." He also said, "I now understand China better. I also know the three things that Dafa disciples should do: to study Fa, send forth righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth."
He said, "No wonder it always rains when I come here. I'm supposed to stay inside and study the Fa!" He also said, "I should begin to study the Fa." I knew he had decided to practice.
After I got off work, we read Zhuan Falun together. Next we continued to read Zhuan Falun (Volume II) and Essentials for Further Advancement. I also taught him the exercises.
When I sent forth righteous thoughts, I invited him to participate. When I felt the strong energy, I knew Master had begun to take care of him.
In just one week, my old friend walked into Dafa! He didn't expect to experience so many amazing changes during his visit. He learned about the three things, and also knew how to do the three things well. He said his daughter-in-law practiced Falun Gong and he would not object to her anymore. On the contrary, he would ask his son to support her practice.
After the principal returned home, he visited one of his former colleagues who was sick and told him he had withdrawn from the Party. His colleague used to practice Falun Gong but had given up due to the pressure. After he took the materials the principal brought him, he was very happy.
This principal was able to do the three things well right after he began practicing. Later, his daughter-in-law gave him Zhuan Falun, and he studies the Fa every day now.
Meeting People with Predestined Relationships
Most people I meet on high-speed rail trains and planes are professionals. I meet such people on almost every business trip. I use these opportunities to save them.
I met a high-ranking military officer during a business trip not long ago. People in the military are more strictly monitored by the Party so it's harder for them to get to know the truth. In the beginning he argued with me, but later he gradually accepted what I was saying. He then asked to watch the video "False Fire" and accepted the book and a DVD of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. He also agreed to withdraw from the Party. In the end, this officer introduced me to his friends, asking me to "inspire" them.
I also regard those who call me and promote products as people who have predestined relationships with. I regularly call them to clarify the truth.
Cultivating Myself Well to Validate the Fa
Last fall, for nearly two months, I was busy taking care of my father who lives in the countryside. I didn't practice and study the Fa enough during that time. I also hardly slept for nearly 20 days, because my father needed constant attention, 24 hours every day. I had to help him turn over, take his temperature, and constantly help him spit up phlegm.
One of my sisters later said, "It's amazing! You look upbeat and energetic! Anyone else would have collapsed within two days after doing all this for our father."
Because of this, my sister and her husband greatly changed their opinion of Falun Gong and also wanted to learn to practice. They listened to the recordings of Master's Fa teaching and both of them experienced remarkable physical changes.
Shortly after I began practicing, I looked much younger, with fewer wrinkles and even the shape of my face became symmetrical. Now everyone I meet is willing to talk to me. Maybe this is because, as Master said, "the appearance stems from the mind." (“Fa Teaching Given at the Epoch Times Meeting”) Of course my appearance changed after I began cultivating in Dafa because I have developed a compassionate heart.
Falun Dafa has turned me into a kind and tolerant person. Most of my business partners have benefited from Dafa as well. I behave in line with the Fa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and always place others first. Everyone I communicate with or who works with me has noticed the change in me and been moved.
I treat the employees at my partner's factory well. They all know Dafa is good. I often do the exercises in this factory, and they enjoy watching me practice. Many times they don't let me work, but instead, ask me to practice the exercises.
My temper was pretty bad before, and I often got really upset and yelled at people. Now I never lose my temper, and I'm calm in any situation. This significantly influenced my partner and his employees. My partner often tells me, "You don't need to work when you come to my factory, just practice. You can help us by simply practicing the exercises."
I experienced a miracle six months after I obtained the Fa. I was riding a train. A middle-aged man beside me was tired, so he spread out a newspaper and lay down on it. I was cold and thought he must be even colder because he was lying in the draft. I took my coat off and covered him with it. I chatted with him for most of the night. He greatly identified with Dafa and liked Master's poems. He also copied two of them.
The amazing thing was, after I covered the man with my coat, I was no longer cold! All the people sitting around me had on more layers than I did. Several of them witnessed this and were touched by it. They gave me their phone numbers when I was getting off the train and asked me to keep in touch with them.
I realized that, seeing I had the heart to be considerate of others, Master protected me! I remembered Master's teaching:
"Once you upgrade your xinxing, your body will undergo a great change. Upon xinxing improvement, the matter in your body is guaranteed to transform." (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun)
I'm profoundly moved by all the Fa principles taught by Master. The more I read Zhuan Falun, the more profound, marvelous and boundless I feel it is.
I still have many attachments I need to eliminate, such as my bad temper, impatience, and my desire to show off. I will make stricter demands on myself, try to do the three things better, and save more people.
Please point out anything inappropriate.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
