German Practitioners Inspired by Experience Sharing Conference
(Minghui.org) A Falun Dafa experience-sharing conference was held in Bad Kissingen in Bavaria on January 14. Practitioners from Germany and Switzerland attended the conference and listened to 18 fellow practitioners' experience sharing. The attendees were inspired by these real-life stories and motivated to make further improvement on their own cultivation.
Alina is a schoolteacher who started practicing Falun Dafa in 2009. She said, “I'm very touched by the experience sharing. One practitioner shared her experience of spreading the message of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to female prisoners when she taught them classes. I'm impressed with how she inspired the prisoners with compassion. As a teacher, I noticed children in my school sometimes have conflicts. Her experience inspired me to spread strong positive energy to my students.”
Alina was also inspired by another practitioner's story. The practitioner had been ignored by her parents when she was little. She had grown up jealous and resentful. Now she has to take care of her elderly parents, cooking three meals a day and doing everything for them. She used to be filled with resentment when she saw her parents at the dinner table, but she eventually let go of her resentment by studying and memorizing the Fa. Alina found it especially touching when she heard the practitioner give her mother big smiles and realized the resentment had been completely dissolved from the bottom of her heart.
New Practitioner Gains Understanding on What It Means to Be Falun Dafa Disciples
Dascaku has been practicing Falun Dafa for a year. She gained a better understanding of the meaning of being Falun Dafa disciples.
She said, “I hadn't studied 'What Is a Dafa Disciple' before. I got a chance to read it at the conference for the first time. I learned about the connection between our energy and the universe. In a dream I had, I was with many people, and I kept saying them, 'I'm a Dafa disciple. I have predestined relationships with everyone.'
“Tears kept welling up my eyes during the conference. Listening to the experience sharing was like looking into a mirror. I have run into difficulties with my cultivation, like the others. Now I know that I should study the Fa more, cultivate myself more, and eliminate more attachments.”
Gaining Better Understandings of Letting Go of Attachments to Fame and Fortune
Ms. Li from southern Germany was especially touched by a practitioner's sharing on how he had let go of attachments to fame and fortune through changing his job. Ms. Li used to be a lawyer, and now she is working at a truth clarification media outlet.
She thought that her talent was being underutilized. “I publish other people's articles every day. Some authors were anxious and impolite. Sometimes it became a hard test for my xinxing.” Ms. Li knows clearly that there is no ranking or competition when it comes to truth clarification, and she should treasure these opportunities to improve.
Bad Stuff Left My Body
Sadrina started practicing Falun Dafa in 2011. She said that she had found many of her attachments while listening to the experience sharing. She had thought these attachments had been eliminated, but they were still there. She also found where she had fallen short in her cultivation and decided to work more on her compassion.
Monika had been cultivating for more than ten years. She thought the experience sharing was very helpful to her. She was especially touched by two fellow practitioners' sharing on how they had cultivated Compassion and let go of life-long resentment.
Monika grew up with little care from her mother. She said, “I had been trying to become a good person, but it wasn't until ten years ago that I truly felt compassion for the first time. I'm very grateful to Master! I feel charged with energy and power. In the past few days, I could feel that a lot of bad stuff has left my body.”
