Walking On the Path Arranged by Master
(Minghui.org) When I got married in 1997, I looked rather sickly because I suffered from many ailments and had to get injections every other day.
My father-in-law began to practice Falun Dafa and recovered from all his health problems. After witnessing this, I took up this cultivation practice and bought the book Zhuan Falun.
I could not read many of the words because I'd had little education, but I had confidence. When other practitioners read the Fa, I pointed to each word and quietly repeated it. I studied the Fa every day and practiced the Falun Dafa exercises. Within a month, I'd returned to good health.
I followed Falun Dafa’s core principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and changed my attitude towards my husband’s parents and his two brothers and their wives. My mother-in-law witnessed how I changed and told people that Falun Dafa had granted me a bride’s beauty and a good personality.
Master Did Not Give Up on Me
I stopped practicing for nearly two years after the persecution of Falun Dafa began on July 20, 1999. One day I became ill and went to a hospital to get an injection. The needle would not penetrate my skin.
I suddenly remembered that Master had said,
“We have a practitioner who broke a few needles at a hospital. In the end, the liquid medicine squirted out, and the needle still would not penetrate. He came to understand: 'Oh, I’m a practitioner, and I shouldn’t have injections'.” (Zhuan Falun)
My face was covered with tears. I was filled with gratitude because Master had not given up on me. I decided to catch up with Fa-rectification and resolved to never again stray from my cultivation path.
Fa-study Site Issues
We did not have a regular Fa-study site in my area due to the persecution, so I suggested using my home.
About two months later, our material production center was damaged, and the practitioner who was in charge of printing Dafa materials was illegally arrested. The police also put me on their watch list because the arrested practitioner and I had been in contact.
My home was only a block away from the local police station, on the opposite side of the street. Because of that, fellow practitioners and my family members had all kinds of opinions, with some believing that we should not use my home for group Fa-study.
“If a cultivator can let go of the thought of life and death under any circumstance, evil is sure to be afraid of him. If every student is able to do this, evil will of itself no longer exist. All of you are already aware of the principle of mutual-generation and mutual-inhibition. If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist. This is not to be self-imposed, but is achieved by truly and calmly letting go of it.” (“Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
After reading this Fa, I felt that I was very tall and big and could destroy all the evil in this cosmos. All of my human notions were gone. I asked myself, “What are we afraid of? Master and the Fa are beside us.”
Other practitioners and my entire family studied the Fa together. After sharing our ideas, we all agreed: “Master has the final say!” We could let go of many human notions and attachments. Although our group Fa-study site has been subjected to many harsh tests, it has existed for 11 years.
Practitioners Are Not Alone
Master asked us to bring former practitioners back to Dafa. Local practitioners and I visited those practitioners and reminded them that the environment was changing for the better due to the progress of Fa-rectification.
We gave them Dafa’s weekly magazines, informational materials, and Master’s new articles. These were very helpful, and practitioners from other areas began to distribute Dafa materials and set up their own Fa-study sites.
Our local coordinator was arrested and taken to the provincial brainwashing center. Another practitioner and I volunteered to organize his rescue. We talked with the practitioner’s family and made sure that there always were practitioners visiting them and providing any help needed.
If I encountered difficulties, sudden conflicts, or misunderstandings, I could stay calm and recite Master’s Fa in my mind. All of my human notions and bad thoughts would leave me.
