(Minghui.org) Everyone in my family practiced in Falun Dafa, so it only seemed a matter of time before I'd join them in 2005. Looking at the path I have walked since then, I can tell that every step forward would not have been possible without Master’s guidance, support and mercy.

Nothing can deter me from cultivating

My entire family was persecuted for our beliefs, and my husband was tortured to death in prison. After my husband died, policemen often came to our apartment to look for me. To avoid being arrested, I left my family for the streets, becoming destitute and homeless.

It felt as if the sky had fallen–I asked myself what I should do, and whether I could withstand all this hardship and continue cultivating. While searching for answers to these questions, I realized that Dafa was rooted deeply inside me. My desire to study the Fa and genuinely cultivate became even stronger.

Unable to fully concentrate under the harsh environment, I decided to recite the Fa from memory. Every word appeared clearly in my mind and then penetrated deep down into the origin of my life.

The Fa expanded in my environment when I recited it, and the size of my physical body dwindled. I realized how humble I was before Master. The smaller I became, the less important I felt, and the more I respected Master.

Meanwhile, I could see the solemnness of Dafa and knew how fortunate I was to have been given the opportunity to learn the Fa. When layers of the Fa were gradually unveiled to me, I became more and more determined to cultivate in Dafa. Worldly things all became trivial, and the only thing that still mattered to me was studying the Fa.

Everything originates from the Fa. When I send forth righteous thoughts, I am surrounded by strong energy, and I can keep my posture motionless like a mountain. When I meditate, I am sitting as if inside an eggshell, with numerous galaxies orbiting in front of me and a universe spinning inside me.

Reaching cultivation status in three months

Master strengthens my abilities and encourages me to move forward. The old forces that attempted to interfere with my cultivation cannot reach my level anymore.

I memorized Zhuan Falun and finished reading all the other lectures in three months. It felt as if an iron lid that had covered my head had been lifted, and I was immersed in the universe–the world around me was all illusionary.

One quiet evening, I suddenly felt that my life was now eternal. I could feel that Master was right above me in the sky and that many gods were watching me. The moment that Master was about to crown me, I realized that I had reached godhood in a very short period of time.

I was completely absorbed in the dignity and solemnness of the atmosphere at the moment. I only felt that I didn't want to remain in the human world and wondered what I would do if I were to stay. Then, these bold words appeared in my brain: “Save Sentient Beings.”

I could hear deafening thunder at the same time. Master was replaying the scene of me signing my vow before descending to this world. I cried at the noble scene, as I didn't know what else to do.

Even though “Having heard the Dao in the morning, one can die in the evening.” (“Melt into the Fa”, Essentials for Further Advancement), I knew that Teacher wants me to stay here for a reason.

Whenever I feel lost and stressed, I remember the words Master had given me– “save sentient beings”–and use them to guide me to move forward.
