Dafa Practitioners Are the Happiest People of All
Practicing Falun Dafa Improves Physical and Mental Health
I was 37 years old when I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. I looked thin and haggard. I also suffered from migraine headaches and a host of other medical problems. Being short-tempered, I frequently caused conflicts with my family. Desperate for a cure, I tried both Eastern and Western medicine, but the results were negligible. I felt hopeless!
Soon afterwards, I entered the path of cultivation in Falun Dafa. My mind and body were thoroughly purified. All my illnesses disappeared, and my character improved. It was like being in Heaven! I became determined to cultivate well and assimilate to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in all aspects of my life.
I learned that when facing conflicts, I should look within for the cause rather than blame others for something they might not have done. As I began to consider the feelings of others, my family and work environments improved. I gained a sunny disposition and felt like the happiest person in the world. Falun Dafa is great!
Improving the Work Environment
I work as a cook in a gypsum factory, and my boss is very particular. I often need to remind myself that I must be tolerant and considerate of others’ feelings when dealing with my coworkers. They have a predestined relationship with a Falun Dafa practitioner, so it is up to me to give them a good impression of Dafa.
Kindness Overcomes Anger
One day at work, I saw a young man named Yan sitting on a bench after lunch. I asked, “Why aren’t you working?” He burst into a rage, “There is not enough food to eat!” He threatened to tell the boss that I had not cooked enough.
At first, I reacted to his tone but reminded myself that I was a practitioner. In the past, I would have started a fight with him, but as a Falun Dafa practitioner I am required to be patient and considerate of others. I thought, “If he were my son, would I be angry with him? No, I would hurry up and cook more food for him.”
I said to Yan, “I am sorry that I did not prepare enough food today. I will cook more from now on. Please go to work.”
With the guidance of Dafa, the conflict was resolved.
Get Rid of Attachments and Save People
One day I tried to talk to a young man, but he did not respond and turned his back towards me. I wondered what to do, then remembered Master's poem:
Hurry Up And Tell Them
As Dafa disciples clarify the truthSharp swords shoot forth from their mouthsTearing open the rotten demons’ liesLose no time and save them, hurry up and tell them(Hong Yin Vol. II)
I asked him, “Young man, have you heard about withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to ensure a bright future?” But he did not seem to pay any attention to me.
I didn’t let that bother me, and continued, “You know that many corrupt officials have been sentenced and imprisoned, right? In fact, they are the chief perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Dafa, and Heaven is punishing them. Many people have filed lawsuits against Jiang Zemin for launching the persecution. When he is finally brought to justice, the persecution will be over and justice will prevail.”
He still did not respond. I went on, “Falun Dafa is the Great Buddha Law. It is the best way to restore the moral standard and cure diseases at the same time. I hope you have the correct understanding of what Falun Dafa is and remember that Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. By withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliates, you will have a good future. Your life will be blessed!”
Suddenly, he spun around and looked at me. I was startled until I saw his smile. I asked, “Do you know how to use a computer? I have software to circumvent the Internet blockade so you can get access to uncensored information. Would you like a copy of it?”
He nodded and I further explained, “When you have time, try to find the truth online. Falun Dafa has been wronged! It is important to know the truth and not blindly follow the CCP.”
He smiled and said, “Thank you so much!”
I felt so relieved. In the process of talking to him, I became aware of attachments I still harbored, such as anxiety, fame, and resentment. Without remembering Master’s poem, I would not have handled the situation well, and that young man may not have learned the truth.
You may talk cultivationBut you have to discard the attachmentsthat you hold deep insideWhat’s given up is not oneselfBut instead the folly of delusion(“Discarding Attachments” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
