We Harvested a Bumper Crop
(Minghui.org) My husband and I live in the countryside. We began to practice Falun Dafa in May 1995. It has been over 20 years, and I have maintained a strong belief in Dafa despite the persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
A Bumper Crop on Less Land
We own a plot of land in the shape of a fan, with 7 ridges on the north-end and more than 30 ridges on the south-end. A long ridge covers approximately 1/10 of an acre of land.
For years the neighbors on both sides of our field encroached on our field leaving us with only 4 ridges in the northern part and a small portion of the field in the southern part.
I did not like the neighbors taking over such a larger portion of our field and it was very difficult for me to put up with it. After studying the Fa, cultivating my heart and looking within, I came to understand that I had attachments to self-interest, fighting and hatred.
“Sometimes, you think that something should be yours, and others also tell you that it is yours. Actually, it is not. You may believe that it is yours, but in the end it is not yours. Through this, it can be seen whether you can give it up. If you cannot let it go, it is an attachment. This method must be used to get rid of your attachment to self-interest.” (Zhuan Falun)
My husband and I both looked within and rectified every thought we had. We abandoned our human thoughts and we just believed in Master and the Fa. When it was time for the autumn harvest, our corn stalks were huge. We had a smaller field but our production was better and we had a bumper harvest.
Our neighbors witnessed this and had to admit that practitioners’ fields were indeed producing well.
People around us all now know that Dafa is good and that practitioners will not fight with others. No one objected when we studied the Fa in public or did the exercises. We were never reported to the police.
Also, it helped that practitioners from our Fa study group went from home to home in our village to clarify the facts about Dafa and persuaded them to quit the Party and its youth organizations.
Using Phone Cards to Clarify the Facts
We started clarifying the facts to save local people by using voice calling beginning in 2013. I was responsible for the communication in our area. I purchased phone cards and mobile phones, learned how to use them and taught local practitioners. Many practitioners got involved.
Phone calling was not an easy task for me, as I had problems using a regular cell phone. Now, I had to learn how to use a smart phone. It seemed like a difficult and daunting task. However, I was determined to learn, no matter how difficult it was.
While on this phone calling project, many of my attachments surfaced. Such as being embarrassed, self-interest, showing off, and zealotry. I was able to get rid of them during these three years and matured in terms of using a mobile phone.
I bought a phone card with the value of 135 yuan in May 2015. After inserting the phone card, I began to send forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to help me so I would not waste Dafa resources. One phone card lasted for 10 months.
While making phone calls, I did not neglect my face to face truth clarification. I often went to the market with my husband to clarify the truth. We cooperated with each other well.
