(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners throughout Taiwan gathered for a national experience sharing conference at Taipei's National Taiwan University Sports Center on November 9, 2014.

Eighteen practitioners from varying backgrounds presented papers about their experiences and insights in Dafa cultivation practice. The papers provided inspiration to those in attendance. Upon reflection, many practitioners found shortcomings in their own cultivation, and became determined to improve.

Hurrying to Catch Up

Mr. Xu Boxun, a human resources director at an elementary school, had been looking forward to the conference, and enjoyed listening to practitioners' sharings.

“I was most impressed with the experience of the director of the Pingtung County Public Health Bureau. He made serious choices and did what is right based on Master's teachings of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance. I admire him a lot. I need to hurry to catch up [with my own cultivation].”

Two years ago Mr. Xu's wife fell ill, and had pain throughout her body. Medical treatment did not alleviate her symptoms. While she was on her lunch break one day, she happened across a Falun Gong exercise site and learned the exercises. To her surprise, her pain disappeared.

“My wife led me to Falun Dafa cultivation,” Mr. Xu said. “I attended a nine-day workshop and was very moved by Master's teachings. He is truly offering salvation to us. I often feel tears well up when I think about it. I regret not starting my cultivation earlier. I have to hurry up and advance further.”

A Difficult Job Became a Pleasure

Wenying works for the Kaohsiung City Government. After she was diagnosed with a number of illnesses, colleagues told her that Falun Gong was beneficial to people's health and encouraged her to try the exercises. Wenying took their advice and found that she felt great. She and her colleagues now do the exercises and study the Fa together. They have gained a deeper understanding of the practice.

“My personality and overall mentality have experienced a big change,” Wenying said. “I have a better temper and I'm happy at work.

“My job involves cooperating with a lot of people and lots of little details. I used to feel exhausted when I had to face anything negative. Now I follow Master's teachings and look for my own faults from the bottom of my heart. I sincerely think about others. My job has gradually become a pleasure.”

Their group of city government employees hold an exercise session during the lunch break each day. Many other city employees and passersby have inquired about the practice after seeing their colleagues doing the exercises.

Finding Disparity and Resolving to Make Further Advancement

Weifa, a recent college graduate, was inspired by the experience sharing of an elderly practitioner who travels a long way each day to clarify the truth to Chinese tourists at a popular tourist site.

“I have been busy with my school work, job hunting, and my new job. I haven't done enough to clarify the facts about Falun Gong,” said Weifa. “My home is only half an hour from the tourist spot she goes to. I'm embarrassed to say that I have rarely paid attention to clarifying the facts there. I will improve and join my fellow practitioners at the tourist spot.”
