Practicing Dafa Makes Me So Happy
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and am now 76 years old. Over the past 20 years, I have believed in Master and in Dafa, and cultivated diligently.
An Illiterate Can Read Dafa Books
Because I was illiterate, I could only listen to others read the teachings during Fa study when I first obtained the Fa. Fellow practitioners encouraged me to memorize the characters and follow along as I listened.
After doing that for six months, I was able to read on my own. Although there were still characters I didn’t recognize, there were far fewer. I started to read Master’s other lectures. I begged Master to give me more wisdom. Other practitioners helped me correct my pronunciation. I’m now able to read all of Master’s lectures on my own and can even correct my husband’s pronunciation sometimes.
Some practitioners feel that encouraging people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its associated organizations is hard. What is hard for me is recording the alias that the person uses to quit the CCP. In the past, I was able to persuade 20 to 30 people to quit the CCP every day. I didn't always know how to write their names down myself, but fellow practitioners helped me with it.
They Cannot See Me
When I was living with my daughter in 2006, I noticed words slandering Dafa on the bulletin board in the residential area. I decided to wipe them off with a cloth that night.
My daughter wanted to stop me because she was worried that the security guards might see me. I told her, “They can’t see me.”
Although the bulletin board was right under the bright street lights, I went right over to it and wiped the words off to keep more people from being poisoned. Several days later, the board itself was removed.
Indeed, the security guards did not see me. Fellow practitioners said, “It was because of your righteous thoughts.”
Master Sends People to Direct Me
When I lived with my son in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, one night, I went out to put up truth-clarification stickers. After a while, I got lost on the university campus.
I begged Master to direct me back home. Several minutes later, I saw a father and son exit a residential building. They gave me directions. I thought, “Tomorrow I should come back here and tell them the facts about Dafa.”
But when I returned the next day, there was no residential building where one had been the night before. I realized that Master had shown me that building and the father and son so that I could go home that night. Master has always been with me. Since then, I have been even more diligent and steadfast in my cultivation.
The Police Listen to Me
I'm willing to talk to everybody I meet about Falun Gong, including police officers. Some of them say to me, "I’m a police officer. Aren’t you afraid that I’ll arrest you?” I know that Master is with me all the time. Plus, I’m saving them. I tell them why I’m doing this and that I do it for their sake. Most of the time, they agree to quit the CCP. Even when some of them don’t agree with me, they are kind and just tell me to leave.
Several days ago, I ran into a plainclothes officer at a bus stop. When I mentioned quitting the CCP, he took out his cell phone and was going to call the police to come arrest me.
I said, “Police officers also need to be safe and to have good futures. Please do not persecute Falun Gong. Many officers who’ve participated have encountered retribution. I’m doing this for your own safety.” Just then, the bus came.
He said, “I have to go. You can leave.” I knew that Master had made the bus come right then. Maybe it was not his time to be completely saved yet. I could feel the power of the energy field when I was truly thinking about others. I believe that Master was with me and protecting me. I hope that the police officer can eventually be saved.
A Miracle after Heart Surgery
My older son has severe heart disease. Doctors said that even if he had surgery, they would not be able to guarantee his survival. My son asked for my opinion. I said, “As long as you believe in Dafa and you recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ your surgery will be successful. Please go ahead and get it done.”
Not only was the surgery successful, my son regained consciousness in only three days instead of the usual seven. The doctors were all very surprised. My son recovered very quickly. He and his wife and my other relatives all believe that Falun Dafa is good!
Car Destroyed, But My Son Escapes Unscathed
After my son recovered from his surgery, they bought a car and started a taxi business. One day, his heart disease recurred and he passed out in a village as he was driving. The car crashed into a truck and was totaled.
When he came to, he crawled out of the car and found himself uninjured. He saw the “Falun Dafa Is Good” amulet in the car and knew that Master had saved him again.
Master’s Fashen Is Right Next to Me
One rainy morning, I was trying to clarify the truth to a pretty lady in her 40s when she said, “You are a Falun Gong practitioner.”
When I said I was, she said, “Your Master is right next to you. Wherever you go, he always accompanies you and protects you.”
I knew that Master was encouraging me to save more people. I have become even more diligent since that encounter.
