High School Principal: “Life Is Full of Hope”
(Minghui.org) I am a high school principal. I went to see Mr. Wang, one of the high school teachers regarding a work assignment. He was not in, but I noticed a book on his desk. When I realized what it was I left his office immediately. It was a Falun Dafa book and I did not want him to know that I suspected him to be a Falun Dafa practitioner, because the practice is banned in China.
I started to pay more attention to his behavior. I found out he tutored his students for free. He refused to accept money and gifts from students' parents. One day I witnessed a student shouting at him, and he remained calm. I felt he was a good person.
One day when we chatted he mentioned that there would be a big earthquake soon. The Wenchun earthquake that shocked the world happened just a few days later. I was curious and asked him how he knew it was going to occur. He did not hesitate to tell me that he practiced Falun Dafa and that another practitioner told him about the earthquake.
No Longer Deceived
I wanted to meet the other practitioner and soon after was able to visit him in his home. I chatted with him and his wife. I could hear an older lady in the next room teaching a young girl to say “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
His wife had a rosy complexion, and she was very pleasant. The benevolent and peaceful energy field I felt there was very calming. They explained to me things in life that had always puzzled me. They told me amazing things that they experienced during their cultivation. Then they gave me the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun.
Like many other people, I had been deceived by the media. I read Zhuan Falun and realized that cultivation is to cultivate one's heart according to the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. When facing conflicts, the founder of Falun Dafa said:
“...you should always maintain a heart of benevolence and a mind of kindness.”
“Whenever you encounter a problem, you should first consider whether others can put up with this matter or if it will hurt anyone.”Zhuan Falun)
I personally experienced that feeling. I felt that this book is amazing. When I finished reading it I told Mr. Wang that I wanted to learn everything I could about Falun Dafa. He brought me the exercise teaching video and the Guangzhou Fa teaching audios.
He did not return to work after that. I learned that he had been arrested. I was appalled at the thought that such a good teacher and fine person could be arrested for his beliefs. What is wrong with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)? I began to reconsider the education I received. I read the Nine Commentaries and compared it with the current social problems. I knew the book was correct.
True Meaning of Life
I soon began to learn the exercises using the video. An amazing thing happened. In the past my right shoulder plate was painful during the winter months. While I was doing the sitting meditation, I felt warmth in this shoulder. After that I never experienced pain there again. While meditating I also felt my body was light and comfortable. I went from a stubborn bad-tempered person to being kind and tolerant.
Dafa taught me the cause of punitive justice, and the reason for a person to live. I understood the true meaning of life and feel life is full of hope.
My changes encouraged my husband. One day I came home and saw Zhuan Falun on the coffee table. I thought perhaps I had forgotten to put it away. But it was my husband who had been reading it. He said he could not read much because his mind was restless. I told him he could listen to Master's Fa teachings instead. I put the video on but it was the exercise teaching video. He said it was okay and he would start with that. When I returned from running an errand he told me, “I felt energy flowing in my hands.”
