(Minghui.org) I began to read Falun Dafa’s main book Zhuan Falun in March 1999. After my first read I thought, “Why did I read this book so late?”
Since that time I read between one and five lectures daily, as I feel myself very lucky to be a Falun Dafa practitioner.
I also studied other articles by Master. I even hand copied the book Essentials for Further Advancement.
When I first started practicing Falun Dafa, I experienced many supernormal phenomena that were discussed in Master's lectures.
While meditating, I also experienced extraordinary occurrences that Master had talked about.
Even in dreams that I remember vividly, I saw things that were far beyond the ordinary.
“When I’m talking about the Third Eye, every one of us feels his forehead become tight, with the flesh gathering and drilling inward.” (Zhuan Falun)
“What will happen is that when you go sit there you’ll feel wonderful, like you’re sitting in an eggshell, and you’ll feel really good, you’ll know that you are cultivating, but you’ll feel like your whole body can’t move. These are things that have to happen in our practice. There’s another cultivation state: you sit and sit, and then you discover that your legs are gone, you can’t figure out where they went, and your body is gone, too, your arms are gone too, your hands are also gone, and only your head is left. As you keep meditating, you discover that your head is gone, too, and only your mind is left—there’s just a little bit of awareness left knowing that you’re cultivating here.” (Zhuan Falun)
Before I practiced Falun Dafa, I used to have injections for stomach problems and severe intestinal pain. Shortly after practicing, I again experienced these illness symptoms. From studying the Fa, I understood that Master was purifying my body. Soon after, the symptoms disappeared and I had recovered from all my illnesses.
Jiang Zemin,, the former head of the communist regime, launched the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999. The state-controlled media fabricated lies about Falun Dafa, and not even one day went by without broadcasts vilifying Dafa.
A mentally ill patient was interviewed who claimed that Master did not allow him to go to the hospital to cure his illness. I did not believe this for one minute, because there was nothing in Zhuan Falun that prohibits people from seeing a doctor, or going to a hospital.
This was the last time I watched the nonsense propagated by the Chinese state- controlled media. Instead, I decided to study the Fa diligently.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) fabricated the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident and bombarded the public daily about this incident, in an effort to incite hatred in people.
Anyone who has read Zhuan Falun would know that Falun Dafa practitioners do not commit suicide. Taking one's own life or the lives of others is a grave sin.
After a fellow practitioner handed me Master's latest article about the responsibilities of a Falun Dafa practitioner, I learned that our path was to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa, expose the lies, send forth righteous thoughts and awaken the conscience of people.
My child and I went to a residential area to put up Falun Dafa posters that said, “Falun Dafa is Good.” Before hanging the poster I checked if there were any police officers.
However, after I hung up a poster, three plainclothes policemen walked out of a building and seemed to follow us. I told my child to send righteous thoughts for me. The three officers came close to us, but it appeared that they did not see me.
One of the officers took down the poster and murmured: “I did see a woman with a white backpack walk this way. Where did she go?”
I knew that it was Master protecting me.
At first, I had problems talking face to face with strangers about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations, which was frustrating.
Some people cursed, yelled, and then hung up the phone. Others did not quit the CCP even after I spoke with them for a long time. However, I came across people who agreed to quit the CCP, which helped me get through difficult times.
With my fellow practitioners’ guidance, I greatly improved at making phone calls. Then, after a while, I was able to make phone calls without hesitating.
I saw an elderly man on the road. He greeted me when I passed by, so I decided to talk to him about Dafa. After I told him about the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, the man asked me to write them down, so he would not forget them.
Another time, I saw a man who was fishing in the river. I chatted with him, and learned that he had joined the Young Pioneers, an affiliate of the CCP. I told him that he should quit that organization, but he was reluctant.
“The CCP is responsible for the death of 80 million Chinese people. People were killed during the many political movements,” I said. “This was during peaceful and not war times. Now, the Party is involved in harvesting organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners. It is doomed by heaven for committing so many crimes.”
I continued, “The CCP forced people to pledge that they protect the Party with their lives. Even children have to pledge and must wear a red tie once they attend school. Without quitting the CCP, one is in fact honoring that pledge. Thus, when the CCP is eliminated, all of its members will suffer the same fate.”
After providing more information about the predicted demise of the CCP, the man agreed to use an alias and quit it.
There are different ways for addressing the issue of quitting the CCP.
One man quit after I told him: “The CCP relies on lies and violence to maintain its political power.”
I repeated many different issues about the persecution and Dafa when I talked to people. People understood the urgency of quitting the CCP, and some even used their real name to quit.
The subject of quitting the CCP can be addressed from many different angles, as long as people understand the importance of quitting it.
As long as we truly have the best interest of any individual in our heart, we will be successful in our efforts. However, we still need to do things wisely, be considerate of others, and consider our own safety.
There is only one wish in my mind. May the world's people learn the truth about Dafa and believe that Dafa and its practitioners are good.
