(Minghui.org) A friend of mine handed me a copy of the book Zhuan Falun and recommended that I read it. At that time I had not heard of Falun Dafa.
I read about 30 pages on the first night and found the book to be wonderful. The next evening, I read about the five exercises, and I decided to learn them. On the third evening, after I read about 200 pages, I felt dizzy and nauseous.
My friend called me and asked me what I thought of the book. I asked her why I felt dizzy and sick to my stomach? She came to my home immediately. After sharing with her, I knew that Master was cleansing my body and that I had obtained the Fa. I soon felt Falun rotating in my lower abdomen, palms and forehead.
I was passing a dump truck that was loaded with dirt soon after I learned the exercises. Suddenly, the dump truck changed direction and speeded toward me. All I saw was a pile of dirt coming at me, and I heard myself yelling.
I then saw what looked like a Falun on my windshield, and my car had passed the dump truck. I did not feel frightened until I arrived home.
When I had read Zhuan Falun for the second time, I noticed that Master had written about a similar incident. I realized that Master had protected me!
"Dafa disciples have to cultivate on the basis of the Fa and do the three things of Dafa disciples well, and only then can one walk one’s path correctly and wash oneself clean of the times when one fell short." ("2012 International Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital")
I learned that Master has asked practitioners to study the Fa, cultivate themselves, send righteous thoughts, and help people understand that Dafa is good and why it is being persecuted. With the help of fellow practitioners, I began to distribute Dafa informational materials and joined the phone calling project.
During a group sharing, I heard about a practitioner who did particularly well when talking about Dafa face to face. I thought that it would be great if I could learn from her. Master must have heard my wish. I met the practitioner, and she helped me improve my skills.
When going out, we divided our tasks, with one of us talking to people while the other sent forth righteous thoughts. I told myself to keep compassion in my heart and have a smile on my face.
When we saw workers repairing pipes, we stopped and talked to them about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. All but one came to understand that Dafa is good and withdrew from the party.
I had an argument with the worker who refused to quit the Party. The other practitioner asked him not to slander Master because it would not be good for him. He then left, and I heard him cursing.
We talked to a group of people several days later. One man said that he is a Communist Party member. I gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other Dafa materials. He agreed to read them, but would not quit the Party. He was the man whom I had argued with a few days prior.
Then, after another few days, we went to that location again and met up with that person. He asked for some more Dafa materials and he quit the Party.
There has been a lot of goodness, joy and tears. No matter what, I know that Master always gives us the very best.
One evening, it began raining heavily when we were distributing materials. I sat on the back of the electric bike. It was very windy. I held onto the driver with one arm, and did my best to protect the bag of Dafa materials with my other arm.
It was very cold and I asked myself, “Why am I doing this? I have always been protected by family members and never experienced anything harsh. Why should I suffer like this? " Tears and rain drops covered my face.
It is so hard to be a Dafa practitioner, I thought, “We try to help people understand the facts about Dafa, yet some still misunderstand us. Why should it be like this?” I felt sorry for myself.
Just then, I had another thought, “If helping people to understand the truth was easy, and if it could be done comfortably, then anyone could do it. Why would Dafa disciples be needed? Master would not ask us to help people if it was really easy!”
I stopped crying when I thought of this. When I got home, I looked inward. I saw many of my attachments, such as selfishness, seeking comfort, feeling sorry for myself, and seeking reward, etc.
That night I dreamed that I and my fellow practitioner had planted many apple trees. There were many fruits on the trees, but the land was very dry. The tree leaves wilted. We began to water the trees and continued until the land was soaked.
I knew Master was hinting that sometimes things may not look good on the surface, but Master has arranged the very best for us. We just needed to put in the effort.
For the past four years, Master has held my hands and guided me. When I slacked off, Master's portrait would look very serious. Additionally, Master gave me a hint through a dreams or fellow practitioners. When I was diligent, Master's portrait would smile and let the Udumbara flowers bloom in my home. Master was encouraging me.
