A Young Practitioner’s Experiences in Cultivation Practice
(Minghui.org) I am 22 years old, and I started practicing Falun Dafa in May 2005. My fellow practitioners used to call me “little fellow;” now I am a mature Dafa disciple. I have witnessed many wonders of Dafa during the course of assisting Master in Fa-rectification, and I wish to share some of them below.
Five years ago, a teacher reported me while I was clarifying the facts to a classmate. I was arrested and sent to a brainwashing center and then a labor camp. Every day during the illegal detention, I memorized the Fa for one and a half hours and sent forth righteous thoughts. One day, I received a copy of Master's new articles and Hong Yin III. I memorized seven poems and recited them over 100 times.
The police tried to temp me with an offer of sentence reduction in exchange for betraying a fellow practitioner and writing a guarantee statement, but I refused. They then tried to crush my spirit by using family pressure.
Family members were allowed to visit me after six months. My mother could not stop crying, and my father was sullen and silent. I knew all their suffering was caused by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I told my parents not to worry because their son had not done anything wrong by striving to be a good person. The guards felt helpless and arranged for eight inmates to watch me from then on.
I asked Master to strengthen me because I wanted to save more people. During the detention, I have helped more than 100 inmates and a guard to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. With Master's help, I was released from the labor camp six months ahead of time.
When I returned home, the local police and officers from the 610 Office came to harass me. I told them to stop; otherwise, I would go outside to practice the Falun Gong exercises. They then stopped. My parents also supported me in doing the three things.
My righteous thoughts and righteous actions and support from my family have kept the old forces from daring to persecute me again. My fellow practitioners have also increased in confidence, and we have improved holistically. Any problems that surfaced have disintegrated under Master's grace.
One day while making copies of Dafa books, a practitioner commented that it was not necessary to make a set of books for each practitioner. I disagreed because I believe Dafa disciples need to study the Fa more, and only the Fa can guide us to improve. We all reached a consensus that each practitioner should have a set.
We delivered a set of Dafa books to an older couple, who became diligent after finding guidance in the books. They even formed a Fa-study group in their home. Each fellow practitioner having a set of Dafa books to study has helped us to work as one body. We have become more diligent in doing the three things, and our effectiveness in saving people has greatly improved.
One day, I was at an elder practitioner's home. She saw an apple on her cupboard and was quite surprised, “We don't have any apples. Where did this apple come from?” She offered the apple to me. I accepted it and was very excited because the apple was translucent. Tears rolled own my cheeks because I knew that Master was encouraging us. I took a bite; it was incomparably sweet and out of this world.
I thanked Master with my hands in heshi (to show respect), pressing the hands together in front of the chest. I will play my role in the journey of assisting Master to do Fa-rectification, because Master has given us everything.
From then on, many Dafa projects have kicked off in our area. An elderly practitioner, almost 80, learned to use the computer and a label machine. A material site has been established in almost every village. With around 10 Dafa projects in our area, practitioners are doing better and better in working together.
During the Chinese New Year, households in our area hung up the Minghui Dafa calendar that we had made and delivered throughout our area. The entire area is harmonious and everyone knows Dafa is good. The persecution ceased to exist.
When people around the world started filing criminal charges against Jiang, I decided to file my complaints too. I spent hours completing a 22-page complaint. During the process, the energy of compassion filled my dimensional field. The complaint was received the very next day. My mother, grandmother and aunt all filed their complaints.
Master has the final say in everything. To help other practitioners file their complaints against Jiang, I spent the following month helping practitioners to organize and print their complaints. Those practitioners successfully mailed the complaints and received receipts from the Supreme People's Procuratorate and the Supreme People's Court.
Practitioners becoming more and more righteous was all due to Master's strengthening.
It has been more than ten years since I started practicing Falun Dafa, and I have deeply felt Master's protection during every step of my journey. Dafa practitioners have established mighty virtue in the process of cultivation practice. We exist together with the Fa, and walk together with Master. My hope is that more sentient beings will be saved under Dafa’s infinite grace, which will ensure bright futures for them.
Thank you Master! Thank you Dafa.
