My Cultivation Path as a Teacher
(Minghui.org) I am a 60-year-old retired elementary school teacher who had many ailments throughout my life until I started to practice Falun Dafa. I looked like an old woman by the time I was 30 and was miserable.
I encountered Falun Dafa in 1996 and within only four months I had greatly benefited from the practice. I now ride a bicycle faster than most people in their 30s.
Teachers and Students Know that Dafa is Good
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the brutal crackdown on Falun Dafa in 1999, I began to tell teachers and students in my school about the practice. I only had one thought: I will not allow anyone to insult Falun Dafa.
Many of my colleagues witnessed the improvement in my health when I started to practice Dafa, leading some of them to read the Falun Dafa book learn the exercises.
They were puzzled by the propaganda that the Party spread about Falun Dafa, especially when they heard about the self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square. The CCP produced videos and claimed that Falun Dafa practitioners set themselves on fire. I explained that it was a a massive propaganda stunt by the CCP to erode public sympathy for Dafa. I went into several details, including that it was impossible to have so many fire extinguishers at Tiananmen Square unless the police knew in advance that it would happen. They agreed with my analysis.
To assure that my colleagues held a good view of Dafa, I distributed Dafa materials and they loved them. If anyone held a misunderstanding toward the practice, I helped to resolve them. I asked them to recite the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”, explaining that I believed they would benefit from it.
The Reason why so Many People Practice Dafa
Many of my colleagues benefited from Dafa. For example, one person had a marble-sized lump behind her ear and told me that it disappeared. She said that she recited the two phrases daily and is sure that she benefited from this. I told her, “That is why so many people practice Falun Dafa.”
A colleague did not believe what I said about Dafa. One day she experienced wrist pain. She asked, “Is this because I said something bad when I held the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in my hand?” I said: "You should apologize for that from your heart and recite Falun Dafa is good.” She agreed and the pain was gone.
I taught ideology and morality to fifth and sixth graders. This was a great opportunity to tell those students about Dafa. I read some articles that spoke about the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and explained why they are good qualities. Once the students understood the concept of these three words, I said that given that these three words are the fundamental law of Falun Dafa, the practice can only be good and therefore the persecution is wrong.
Students and Teachers Quit the CCP
When practitioners began to ask people to quit the CCP, I talked to students about this issue at the end of class. Up to five students quit the CCP in every of my classes and once I was ready to move on, I was assigned to another class. At the end of the semester, out of all 337 students, 336 quit the Young Pioneers. Only one student refused. Some students even helped their parents quit the CCP and some teachers helped their friends.
Once a parent asked that the school report me to the police. The lead teacher, who understood the facts about Dafa talked to the parent and the matter was peacefully resolved. Out of the 24 school employees 18 quit the CCP. Some were too scared, but they too knew that Falun Dafa is good.
Talking About Dafa in Public
I wished that I had more time to to talk to people about the practice outside of the school. My obligations to the school changed and I had more free time to talk to people about Falun Dafa in public.
I distribute Shen Yun DVDs and calendars with information about Dafa in markets, shops, bus stations, at construction sites and surrounding villages within a 50 km radius. Every day I distribute dozens of DVDs and help dozens of people quit the CCP.
I saw a bus ready to depart at a bus station. I handed a calendar to the driver and told him that it has information that is really good. He told me after we talked that he joined the Youth League. I said, “Hurry up and quit it. Heaven will eliminate the CCP. If you quit it you won't be implicated during the man-made and natural disasters. I think you can use the nickname Shun Ping? Shun means going smoothly and Ping means peaceful.” He agreed and I told him to remember Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.
He allowed me to distribute the Dafa materials to the passengers and I went from front to back and distributed Dafa calendars. Then, from the back to the front I advised people to quit the CCP. Most people agreed and I recorded their names.
The bus was about to leave and I did not have time to help all the passengers. I told them to read the calendar because it also holds information about how to quit the CCP. Before I stepped out of the bus, I said loudly: “Remember Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, compassion, forbearance is good. Quitting the CCP will grant you peace.”
For the past three years, I have helped thousands of people quit the CCP. Sometimes, I help as many as 60 people on a single day. I understand better why I am in this world. I know that I have much more to do, but I know what to do.
