Experience Sharing by a Nine-Year-Old Falun Dafa Practitioner
(Minghui.org) I am nine-years old. I live with my mother who was divorced from my father several years ago. My mother and her grandmother are Falun Dafa practitioners.
I have had a predestined relationship with Dafa since I was little. I learned to say “Falun Dafa is good” as soon as I could talk.
Experiencing Sickness Karma Tests
I started practicing the Falun Dafa exercises when I was five years old. One day I had a high fever. My mother took me to the hospital for an injection because she didn’t realize that Master was dissolving karma for me. I had a fever again three days later. That's when she realized that I was dissolving karma. However, after my fever reached 102.2, she had the doctor give me an injection. This continued for a total of three times during a period of 15 days with the fever getting higher every time.
Finally, my grandmother and my mother realized that I had to improve my xinxing and that we should not regard this fever as illness but the process of dissolving karma. From then on, my mother read the Fa to me and we watched Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs. I felt hot during the following two days and had pain and a burning feeling in my stomach. My mother asked me if I was able to handle it. I said “Yes.” My heart didn’t move no matter how uncomfortable I felt. I believed in Master and Dafa. Two days later my fever disappeared. I passed this test.
I had several small bumps on my neck in 2012. It didn’t worry me, but my auntie worried about me. She said it appeared to be viral warts, and if not taken care of they would become worse. But mom said that it was a good thing and a test for me to see if I, as a Falun Dafa disciple, could bear it. I didn’t think it was an illness and believed that I would gradually recover from it. Summer came and it turned warm. When I wore less clothes, the little bumps were exposed. People who saw me always asked what was wrong with me. Mom always replied: “It doesn’t matter. He is getting better.” But I was embarrassed. I even cried.
My mother asked me to look within to see if I had done anything wrong because the symptoms had lasted for a long time. She had dreamed about my dimension not being clean. I realized that I was attached to watching television cartoons, which contained many bad things. Mom said that in the dharma-ending period many things were of demonic nature and would take advantage of us if we didn't hold righteous thoughts. I realized that I had to stop being attached to watching cartoons.
My body underwent changes as soon as my xinxing had improved. The bumps were itchy when I studied the Fa and did the exercises. Some of the bumps disappeared and the remaining ones joined together and became six big bumps. They were swollen and red. Several days later they became transparent bubbles. The bubbles broke open a few days later and pus came out. My mother said, “You see? Master has discharged the poison for you.” The pus stopped running two days later and the bumps gradually disappeared. Then my neck became smooth and there were no scars.
My family members all knew that I recovered without taking any medication or using any creams. I recovered through practicing Falun Dafa. They said that Falun Dafa was miraculous and they supported it even more!
I went through several tests of sickness karma and my xinxing improved every time. I am now very healthy, and my eyesight has improved.
Talking to People About Falun Dafa
One day my mother took me, my kindergarten friend Song Song, and his brother to a park. There was a big Buddha statue with a hole in its belly. When people inserted coins, it laughed loudly. Many people kowtowed to it. Song Song and his brother wanted to kowtow to it. I stopped them and said, “Please do not kowtow to it. It is a fake Buddha. A real Buddha will not ask for money.” They listened to me and stopped kowtowing. My mother told Song Song’s brother the facts about Falun Dafa and he withdrew from the Young Pioneers (an affiliate of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)). He understood that Falun Dafa is good.
During my first year in primary school, one of the homework assignments was about CCP holidays, such as The Party Day and the National Day. I knew that the CCP was an evil demon so I didn’t do this item. When I handed in my homework, I sent forth righteous thoughts so that the teacher would not see this missing item. As a result she indeed didn’t see it. Later my mother and I went to her home and clarified the truth about Falun Dafa and she decided to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliates.
One day I was at my grandparents’ home. I was asked to have the anti-flu injection. I know Master takes care of me and the injection would not have any effect on me. I asked for Master’s help in my heart. As a result my grandmother said, “No need to have a shot. Nowadays there are poisonous milk and rice. I have heard that people had problems after the injection.” I was very glad in my heart and thanked Master.
During my second year, the school was raising the CCP flag one day. I sent forth righteous thoughts to stop it. The music stopped half way through the ceremony. The students laughed and talked among themselves. The scene was chaotic. Righteous thoughts are really miraculous!
I overcame my fear and laziness. I made Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials and distributed them and put up posters. In winter it was dark and cold, and my hands were frozen, but I was happy in my heart. One day I was careless and two self-adhesive posters stuck together. Mother felt bad about the waste and hit me on my back several times. I didn’t say anything. Mother realized that she shouldn’t have hit me. At home she asked me, “Why didn’t you say anything when I hit you?” I said, “I have to practice forbearance and shouldn’t let this tiny thing interfere with your important task.” She was touched and praised me for having good xinxing. She said that I was a qualified little Dafa disciple and she had to learn from me.
Mother and I went to distribute Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs on weekends. I gave a copy to a young man and said to him: “I'm giving you a free Shen Yun DVD.” I was too shy to say anything more and left him. This was the first time I gave out DVDs face to face. Mother then told him more about Shen Yun. We also gave out anti-Internet blockage software, made pre-recorded phone calls to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa and sent truth-clarifying text messages to people. When I sent forth righteous thoughts while sending messages, they went out smoothly. But, if my mind was not focused, the messages would fail to get through. I would adjust myself immediately and then I would succeed in sending text messages.
Study the Fa and Improve My Xinxing
Mother read Falun Dafa books to me when I was little. I often listened to the children's programs on Minghui Radio. When I grew up a bit, mother and I attended the group Fa study which helped me a lot. I learned many new words. I can read the Fa by myself now. I can recite many of the poems in Hong Yin III.
One day a female classmate threw a book to another classmate sitting behind me but the book hit me. My forehead was injured and bled and it was painful. Though I didn’t show my anger at the time, I wanted to beat her to release my anger in my heart. I told my mom of this incident. She studied the Fa with me.
“Why do you encounter these problems? They are all caused by your own karma. We have already eliminated for you many, numerous pieces of it, leaving only that tiny bit which is divided into tribulations at different levels for upgrading your xinxing, tempering your mind, and removing your different attachments. These are all your own tribulations that we use to improve your xinxing, and you will be able to overcome them. As long as you upgrade your xinxing, you can overcome them.” (Zhuan Falun)
I let go of my anger and my xinxing improved a bit.
I like to read such books as “Grown Up in Falun Dafa” and “The Story of Yaya.” I like to watch the cartoon animation “The Story of Qiuqiu Levitating Again.” They helped me a lot.
When conflicts arose at school, I would treat them according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and I got along well with other classmates. I was good academically and in sports. I won a runner-up in the men’s 200-meter race at the school's autumn games. Falun Dafa gives me wisdom and courage.
I feel very lucky for having become a Falun Dafa disciple in the Fa-rectification period.
