New Practitioner: Believing in Master and the Fa of Utmost Importance
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in January 2014, after I witnessed a practitioner recover from a number of health issues.
In a dream in April 2015, a black hand grabbed my head and I was surrounded by a black field. Feeling desperate, I recalled that my fellow practitioner had told me to call on Master in times of danger. I called, “Master, save me!” The black hand disappeared instantly.
I told the practitioner about my dream.
“Master was worried about you, gave you a hint, and asked you to practice diligently,” she said. “You should join our group Fa study.” Her home was quite far from me, so she promised to find a solution.
A few days later, a new family who practices Falun Dafa moved into our community. That was Master's arrangement, and I thanked him.
Power of Dafa
I am over 50 years old and could not read small print without glasses. Carrying reading glasses around all the time was inconvenient.
One week into the practice, I could see clearly without my glasses. At that moment, I felt a warm current rising from my heart. I witnessed Dafa's power.
After my vision recovered, one of my colleagues and his sister asked me to get a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa, for them. The three of us studied the Fa together during our lunch break. Then our boss also got a copy of Zhuan Falun and bought a CD/DVD player. We could listen to the Fa when we were not busy.
Participating in Group Activities
The police arrested several practitioners and planned to put them on trial during the summer of 2015. Practitioners went to the courthouse to send forth righteous thoughts. This was the first time I had ever participated in this kind of group activity. No one really organized it. We practitioners surrounded the courthouse and send righteous thoughts.
I saw black, sesame seed-sized particles falling from the sky. I thought that the evil beings behind this were being disintegrated. In the afternoon, practitioners who had been in the courtroom told us the arrested practitioners did well defending themselves.
Our thoughts can reinforce righteous thoughts for fellow practitioners and improve their situation.
Refusing Old Force Arrangements
When I went though my first experience of sickness karma, my head was about to explode. I felt bad all over, and my head was itching and in pain. I left for home around 4:00 p.m.
At home, I listened to the audio version of Zhuan Falun, all the way from Lecture One to Lecture Nine. I sent forth righteous thoughts every hour. I felt a little better, but half of my body was still in pain in the evening.
Fellow practitioners send forth righteous thoughts for me. At midnight, I sent righteous thoughts to eliminate the old forces' arrangements, affirming that I only followed the cultivation path Master arranged for me. The next day, I was fully recovered.
During this sickness karma test, I discovered many attachments. I understand now that, as long as I believe in Master and Dafa, there is nothing that I cannot achieve.
Telling People about Dafa
When I first started to cultivate, I thought it was enough if I studied Zhuan Falun and did the exercises every day. Another practitioner reminded me to also study Master's other teachings.
After I studied the other teachings, I realized that I needed to help save people. At first I was afraid to talk to people, including with my family members, about Falun Dafa because of the persecution.
As time passed, I studied the Fa more. I tried to tell my family and classmates the truth about Falun Dafa.
I learned that a classmate I hadn’t seen in 30 years had fallen from a second floor and was paralyzed. I thought of saving her.
A few days before I visited her, I sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to strengthen me and let her obtain Dafa. When I asked her if she had heard of Falun Dafa, she said she had and was not against it. I told her that Falun Dafa teaches people to be good. She felt my sincerity and accepted the book Zhuan Falun and other Dafa materials. Now she studies the Fa every day.
