My Son Decided to Learn Falun Dafa After I Rectified My State of Mind
(Minghui.org) My son graduated from university over two years ago. While there, he dated a girl who was very knowledgeable, gentle, and loving. We were preparing for their wedding when my son told me that she was a hepatitis B carrier. I pretended to be calm and asked him what he was planning to do.
He had strong feelings for her and said that he would not disappoint her when she already had so many troubles. He also told me that he knew about this early on in college.
This brought my attachment to complaining to the forefront, and I was upset that he had not informed me earlier about this. I made a fuss and asked what would happen if he and a child they might have were to become infected? I refused to listen to his explanation. I was only venting my emotions and did not consider his feelings. I completely forgot that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, and my remarks were not those of a cultivator.
I was very ashamed after I realized I still had strong human attachments. I rectified my state of mind by sending a powerful thought to completely remove these bad substances from within me.
These words by Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) immediately came to mind:
“Why do you encounter these problems? They are all caused by your own karma. We have already eliminated for you many, numerous pieces of it, leaving only that tiny bit which is divided into tribulations at different levels for upgrading your xinxing, tempering your mind, and removing your different attachments. These are all your own tribulations that we use to improve your xinxing, and you will be able to overcome them. As long as you upgrade your xinxing, you can overcome them. Unless you, yourself do not want to do so, you can make it, provided you want to overcome them.” (Zhuan Falun)
Master’s words touched my heart deeply. I knew Master wanted me to improve my xinxing and relinquish my emotional attachments to my son.
Suddenly, I had a thought that they could learn Falun Dafa as well.
“Look at me and your father. We have practiced Dafa for many years and we have not taken any medication. Dafa cultivators are healthy,” I said.
“But since 1999 the Communist Party has persecuted cultivators who live by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. They fabricated the Tiananmen self-immolation incident and then framed Falun Dafa for it.”
I told him that the Party has committed the worst crimes in history on this planet, such as harvesting organs from Dafa practitioners for profit. We talked about how the Party has indoctrinated people, destroyed their moral values, and encouraged people to do anything for money.
My son said that he knew that all I said was true.
“I know what the Party's about, too,” he said. “I talked to the practitioners who came over, and I've been home for more than two months. I didn’t understand you at first, but now I know you only want to tell more people the truth. I've seen everything you do. You're the best person in the world.”
We continued to talk about Dafa. He listened and finally said that he wanted to learn Falun Dafa as well.
