New Practitioner Discovers Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I was born in Shanghai in 1982, and I was fortunate enough to discover Falun Gong and eventually began cultivation. As a new practitioner, I’d like to share my experience in cultivation.
Breaking through the Internet Blockade and Discovering Uncensored Information
One day in 2012 I received software which could break through China’s Internet firewall and saw some video clips. Many political events unfolding in China caught my eye, as well as their commentator's analysis. The TV station’s comments and discussion made a lot of sense. As I searched further for more clips, I realized this was New Tang Dynasty TV and its programs were censored in China.
I liked the station very much and continued to visit it. I agreed with most of their views regarding current events except for Falun Gong, which I had many objections about. I had been brainwashed by Chinese Communist propaganda for years. The “Tiananmen Self-Immolation” incident shocked me and I did not have any desire to learn anything regarding Falun Gong.
My World View Changes After Learning More
The more I visited the station, though, the more I wanted to learn the truth. Their way of laying out the facts, analyzing the events, and commenting rationally impressed me deeply. When I watched “False Fire,” my bias against Falun Gong dissolved. The process of learning the truth was like a rebirth. It was painful, as well as shocking. My deep-seated stubborn notions were chipped away piece by piece. My world view changed!
I began to pay more attention to Falun Gong-related information. I even downloaded Zhuan Falun, the main book on Falun Gong, in the summer of 2014. I read it once and I realized that this was a book that teaches people how to cultivate. Cultivation fundamentally means to abide by the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, improve one's moral character and virtue, and to be a good, then a better, and finally, the best person.
When I read the book a second time, I made up my mind to cultivate Falun Gong, abide by the principles, and be a good person.
Change of Heart Brings a Change of Body and Soul
I was born with a weak constitution. I would often catch cold or flu, and any seasonal change could cause a high fever and fits of coughing. This might turn into an upper respiratory infection, which would take weeks to recover from. Since I began to cultivate Falun Gong, I’ve had a fever only once and recovered in record speed without any treatment.
I used to sleep a lot and still would not feel rested. I felt tired all the time. I wasted most of my holidays and weekends catching up on my sleep. Now I sleep much less and I still feel rested and energetic.
I am a technician and most of my job is done on a computer. I used to drag out repairs even if I could finish the job quickly. I would spend most of my time online reading novels, watching movies, and checking news. After I began to cultivate, I realized that this was not a cultivator's behavior. Now I am very attentive when I do my job and finish in a timely manner.
In my work I have many chances to coordinate and cooperate with other departments. After I started cultivation, the process become smoother and I was able to consider others first. Even though I might be busy at the time, I was always able to help others when they had an urgent matter and treated it as my priority.
Falun Gong changed my life. I cultivated away many bad habits, elevated my moral level, enhance my physical health, and improved my family and work relationships.
My family and friends, as well as my colleagues, have all witnessed an enormous change in me since my cultivation, and have learned the wonder of Falun Gong through me.
I hope that everyone with the predestined relationship can learn about Falun Gong. They will be very pleasantly surprised!
