(Minghui.org) A vivid dream on the morning of December 24, 2015 achieved something my wife was not able to do for a long time. It awakened me to step on the path of Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) cultivation.
In this dream I went for a walk with my son and brother-in-law. Suddenly, the sky turned dark and cloudy. However, within a short time, the center cloud scattered into every direction. Two large Chinese characters for “thoughts” slowly rose in the cloud on the west, enlarged, and then covered the entire west of the sky. It was scary.
My subconscious was filled with thoughts about communism. When I looked to the north, I saw two large Chinese characters “Soviet Union,” which covered the entire sky in the north. Then, I looked downwards and noticed a steel pillar about 300 feet from where I stood. The pillar emitted a shining light.
My brother-in-law ran towards the pillar, and it exploded as soon as he reached it. The explosion pushed him away. He rolled over a few times and disappeared.
There were more explosions, with everything flying in all directions. I picked up my son and ran towards the south. Also, many people ran to find a safe place. I hid under a bridge, but did not feel safe, so I ran again. Not far in front of me flew a piece of wooden board with the words “Falun Dafa” painted on it. I thought that it would be safe to find a place with something that had to do with Falun Dafa. I continued running as the explosions came closer. Then, I woke up from the scary dream.
After I woke up, I was rather scarred. Thus, I moved to the front of my wife, who was doing the Falun Gong sitting meditation exercise. She had told me many times to practice Falun Gong, but I just ignored her and did not take her request seriously.
I told her about my dream after she finished her sitting meditation. She said that Master Li, the founder of Falun Gong hinted that only Falun Gong could save people during times of disasters.
She shared her understanding of my dream. The words “thoughts” in my dream indicated that I was taught the communism ideology, which promotes atheism and class struggles. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has killed over 80 million people since it took power. The words “Soviet Union” in the north in my dream indicated that the Soviet Union disintegrated many years ago and the CCP will face the same fate soon.
I decided to practice Falun Gong. I felt refreshed after a few days of practicing and reading the Falun Gong books. I finally understood the real meaning of life, which is to return to my origin.
“Human life is merely a hundred yearsMore sadness and bitterness than sweetnessWhen looking back, who wouldn't grieve?”
“Striving and vying for fame and fortuneHas blindfolded people's eyesThey've forgotten the true purpose of coming to this worldThis chance is the only one, [past or future]Grasped or missed – it depends on your one thought”(“Grasped Or Missed In One Thought,” from Hong Yin III)
I know I started practicing late. The Fa-rectification is nearing its end, but I will keep righteous thoughts, treasure this once in a lifetime opportunity, and cultivate diligently.
