Cherish the Opportunity That Makes Dreams Come True
(Minghui.org) I am 80 years old, and, ever since I was young, I dreamed of cultivating as a monk. In 1998, my dreams were answered, and I became a Falun Dafa practitioner.
After the Chinese regime started to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, I still continued to study the Fa and do the exercises. But I was not diligent! So I began studying and doing the exercises with a few practitioners from my village.
We met for group Fa study twice a week and distributed Falun Dafa truth clarification materials. When there were not enough materials, I wrote “Falun Dafa is good” on the walls with chalk.
The Power of Falun Dafa
One time, I was distributing the materials, and a dog ran after me. I said, “Do not bark, I am here to save you. Remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” The dog went home quietly.
On one occasion in 2003, I accidentally dropped a small speaker that played the exercise music. I picked it up, held it in my hands, and said, “I am sorry.”
When I turned the speaker on, however, the sound was not clear. I was worried and did not know what to do.
I thought about buying a new one but realized that the speaker was also a life.
I tried to communicate with it: “Little speaker, I’m sorry. I accidentally dropped you. You are a life. We have a predestined relationship with Dafa. Let's beg Master for help together. You'll be good again.”
The next day, the speaker worked normally, and I could not help but shed tears.
A Better Environment
In recent years, the environment for letting people know the truth about Falun Dafa has improved. We go to the market to talk to people face-to-face in the morning and study the Fa in the afternoon.
I came across a person who used to be a government official. He said, “If someone else said these things to me, I would report it to police and have the person arrested.”
I smiled and said, “You won't. I didn't explain it well. Take this brochure and read it. You will understand.”
Some time later, I met this person again. This time, he withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party right away.
On another occasion, someone said, “You were so focused on talking to people, where is your backpack?”
I realized the backpack I used to store the materials was missing.
I then held the thought: “People who know the truth are looking for new materials to read.” And, almost instantly, my backpack was returned.
I often ask myself, “Am I doing everything Master has asked of me? How many attachments have I eliminated?” The more I think about it, the more worried I am.
I am 80 years old and always dreamed of finding a true spiritual path. And now my dream has come true. I should cherish this opportunity, be strict with myself, and let go of human attachments.
