Benefiting from Understanding the Falun Dafa Principles
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa relatively late, and only knew to study the Fa and do the exercises.
Many practitioners went out to distribute informational materials about Falun Dafa, but somehow it did not hit me that this was one of the things practitioners should do. However, I took Falun Dafa truth clarification materials home. Since I was afraid to get caught distributing them, I accumulated a lot of materials at home.
It was painful to feel fear, yet I did not want to give up Falun Dafa.
Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of this cultivation practice, did not give up on me and helped me let go of my fear.
Doing Things for the Sake of Doing
I finally did distribute materials, but only thought about getting home safely and not that the Chinese people needed to learn the facts about Dafa.
When I went to a market and dropped Dafa fliers at street vendor stands and on car windshields I did not pay attention to safety. Someone reported me to the police and I was arrested.
A kindhearted person told my young daughter to run home to tell the adults in the house that police had arrested me. As soon as my husband heard the news, he hid all our Dafa materials. The police did not find anything when they ransacked our home and I was released.
I discussed with other practitioners why I was arrested. They thought that I had not thoroughly clarified the truth to those people.
I decided to go door-to-door to distribute the fliers. At first, I took off after discretely pushing the fliers under the doors. Sometimes I went out with other practitioners, and we put fliers into people's backyards. We got scared when someone asked what we were doing.
I now have learned to send righteous thoughts, ask for Master’s help and keep calm in any situation.
Conducting Myself with a Higher Standard
By following the Fa, my problems at home were also resolved. My neighbor, also a farmer always encroached onto my farmland. This kind of thing happened frequently within the farming community. Many people fought and lost their lives over this kind of issue. Before I cultivated, I would also fight about it.
After I obtained the Fa, I conducted myself with a higher standard. Master said that whatever was yours would be yours. I knew that if it was not mine, even if I went and fought for it, I would not get it. So I let it go.
The wind often destroyed my neighbor’s corn, while mine was fine. Although our land got a lot smaller, our home income did not decrease. The yield actually increased over the years. My neighbor’s seedlings did not grow as well as ours and often had insect problems.
Witnessing the Power of Dafa
I had a poor relationship with my husband's parents for many years. My mother-in-law passed away before I obtained the Fa. I visited my father-in-law with nice gifts during the holidays. He began to treat me very well and also quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organization. He believes Dafa is good.
My husband’s family members witnessed his amazing recovery from a brain tumor. He used to suffer a lot of pain. After practicing Falun Dafa, the pain went away. They all know Dafa is good.
After some time of witnessing our changed behavior and attitude, my husband's family members quit the CCP.
When looking over the past few years of cultivation, I have suffered a lot because of my fear and lack of righteous thoughts. By following the Fa principles, I improved on my cultivation path and have gained a better understanding of Dafa.
