Stories from My Cultivation Journey
(Minghui.org) A friend told me about Falun Dafa in November of 1996, and I began to practice. Soon after starting to practice, my many diseases were healed. I am now 66 years of age and have many remarkable experiences on my journey of cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Banners Hung Over a Six Mile Span
The persecution of Falun Dafa by Jiang Zemin began July 20, 1999. I began to write articles explaining the truth about Falun Dafa and distributed them in many places. I made banners and hung them up in places where I thought they would be seen the most.
A fellow practitioner and I rode bicycles to a tourist attraction one night and hung up 60 small banners on the trees on both sides of a road for more than six miles. The poles along this six-mile span were already covered with Falun Dafa posters. We also hung a three-yard long banner on a flag pole.
The following day, I passed by the area and saw a lot of people and policemen. I asked a vendor what all the commotion was about. He said, “Those Falun Dafa people are amazing. They hung banners all over on both sides of the road. Police cars arrived in the morning to take pictures and investigate. Falun Dafa people are awesome.”
"I Will Not Interrogate You Anymore."
I was arrested and confined to a detention center on July 14, 2003 for distributing Falun Gong informational materials. One of the policeman who interrogated me was not wearing a police uniform. I asked him where he had come from to interrogate me. He became angry, pounded his hand on the table and said, “I'm asking the questions here, not you!” At that moment the glass window above the door shattered with pieces of glass landing everywhere.
The officer's face turned pale. Other officers rushed in to see what had happened. He told them a whirlwind must have shattered the glass. The others were puzzled, and one officer said: “How could that happen to an inner office? And look at the glass pieces – they are all the same size. How incredibly strange!”
I asked the officer for a broom so I could help clean up the mess. Shaking his head he said, “No no, you may go now. I will not interrogate you anymore or ever again.”
Do Not Forget I Am a Falun Dafa Student
While I was in the Tuanhe Women's Forced Labor Camp, a woman was slandering Master and Dafa on a stage one afternoon.
I stood up and walked toward the stage when she was finished. An officer asked me where I was going, and I responded that I would like to say something as well. She said I could just speak from where I was, but I ignored her and walked to the stage. As I approached I recalled Master's teaching,
“For instance, while doing Fa-rectification, when the righteous thoughts are very pure, their supernormal abilities are comprehensively utilized. Moreover, with righteous thoughts many disciples are able to use them at will—whatever they want to use, they almost always have it. For example, to freeze those wicked evildoers that persecute Dafa disciples, they just need to say, "freeze" or "stay there and don’t move," or point to the group of evildoers, and then they definitely won’t be able to move; afterwards they just need to think "release," and it will be lifted.” (“What Are Supernormal Abilities” in Essentials for Further Advancement II)
So, I said to the officers near me "Stay there and do not move.” To the woman on stage I said, “Why do you slander Master? Master offers us salvation.”
Two other police tried to pull me off the stage, but could not. They called for help from the other officers who I had frozen with my righteous thoughts. Those officers still could not move. Other officers came to help, and after struggling with me, they were finally able to pull me off the stage.
Some detainees later asked me, “What supernormal abilities must you have to freeze the police like that? They could not move! We laughed and laughed.”
I smiled and said, "Do not forget, I am a Falun Dafa disciple!" After that incident the police never came close to me.
I Support You!
After I left the labor camp, I had trouble with my legs and eyes for a while from the torture. I still went out every day, taking a taxi, to tell the truth about Falun Dafa to others. I usually helped one to two dozen people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) each day.
I went to a vegetable market in April 2017. While talking to a woman there, I asked her if she was a CCP member. She said another Falun Dafa disciple had helped her quit. She then said, “Your teacher is so righteous, and Dafa disciples are righteous too. "
I offered her a Falun Dafa booklet. She looked at it and then held it reverently over her chest. She said, “Here take it, I have one at home. Please give it to someone who does not have one. I know you Falun Dafa disciples are the kindest people, and are righteous. You work hard to tell others about Falun Dafa, spending your own money to make these booklets. Thank you!”
We both wiped the tears from our eyes. Before parting she said, “Pay attention to safety, and please give my regards to your Master when you see him.”
I met an attractive girl in her twenties at a bus stop. I greeted her and told her she was pretty. I asked her if she was a member of the CCP. She said she had joined in high school.
I explained to her why people should quit the CCP. I encouraged her to remember, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” I told her that if she spoke those words with sincerity, she would be safe from danger. Her bus came, and she had to leave. She encouraged me before she left by saying: “Thank you! Keep doing what you are doing and do not get discouraged by what others say. I support you!”
