Student: From Low Grades to Being the Best
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2011 while doing an internship at a factory. The female students lived in an apartment building which was run down and the light bulbs in the corridor were broken. Carrying hot water from the furnace room required one to walk through a small section of woods.
We needed hot water one night to wash up but no one volunteered. Since I try to be a good person and think of others, I volunteered. I was quite scared, but no one wanted to come along. I then thought, I am a practitioner and Master will take care of me.
A few lights were on in the furnace room which lit my path. I was elated, walked towards the lights and got the hot water. Back at the factory, I heard that the lights were usually broken. Therefore, I understood that Master took care of me.
Without Pursuit One Will Do Well
We were given a design assignment. I had my plate full with lots of other work, which included preparing for the graduate study exam. Many of my classmates asked for help or copied what others did. Since I am a Dafa cultivator I follow the principle of Truthfulness, so I decided to do the design by myself.
In the midst of all the work, I attended lectures and did my designs. At last, it was time to draw the designs. Time passed very slowly, and it looked as if I spent hours. However, when I checked the clock, only a few hours had passed!
My classmates took a week to do the drawings, but it took me only a few hours. I realized that Master opened up my wisdom.
If one follows the Fa principles without any pursuit, there will be unexpected benefits.
Before I practiced Dafa, I always had low grades despite working very hard. My math grade was D and I copied my experiment results from others since I had no clue how to do them.
Once I cultivated, I realized that I should not copy from others. I had to be truthful, without any pursuit. I worked hard and did what I was supposed to do.
Gradually, my academic level improved. Studying became easier and I worked faster. During my graduate studies, I constantly won scholarships and got a full scholarship from an overseas university.
It was Master who guided me all along. As long as I gave up attachments, everything worked out.
Writing My Graduation Thesis
As I was writing my graduate thesis, I realized that there were errors in my calculations but I had little time to correct them before the submission date. Since I had to be truthful, I checked my computer programs, something that usually takes a few months. I was applying for overseas universities at the same time. Everything came together and I worked day and night. I was very stressed.
Time went fast. It was getting closer to the submission date, but my numbers were still incorrect. I only had a week left and I either put in fake results or recheck my program. I knew that if I could not correct it, I would not be able to get my graduation certificate.
I remembered Master’s Fa:“We are talking so much about cultivating one’s xinxing, yet this person still behaves as usual once he is among everyday people. He thinks that the actual and tangible benefits within his reach are practical, and he will pursue them; the Fa from Teacher also sounds reasonable, but cannot be followed.” (“Zhuan Falun”)
For over a month, people watched me doing all the things I needed to do. Some classmates laughed at me for persisting in redoing the experiment and some tried to convince me to use fake results. I persisted to check my program, finally found the error and corrected the program. I completed my thesis on time.
In the end, I received high marks for my work, and graduated with my peers.
Master said,“When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: “After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!” (“Zhuan Falun”)
It is indeed so. If one follows the Fa principles, Master will help and one will succeed.
