Blindness Does Not Stop My Cultivation
Memorizing Master's Fa
One practitioner brought the new “On Dafa” article to me and asked me to memorize it.
When I said that I could not read it, much less learn to recite it, my fellow practitioner said, “I can read for you, and you can repeat after me. We can memorize one paragraph each night. I will stay here until you memorize that paragraph. You will be able to recite the entire article after four nights.”
However, I have never been good at memorization even when I could see. But she did not take no for an answer. She encouraged me to have faith in Master and reminded me that we are all particles of Dafa and that Master will give me wisdom.
I was deeply inspired, so we started to memorize that evening. To my surprise, I memorized the first paragraph that night. I gained confidence and memorized the entire article over the next three days.
From then on, I have been memorizing Master's other articles and poems.
Letting Go of Attachments
My daughter invited me to her house for the Chinese New Year, but I did not feel like going because I felt left out in the company of others. To my surprise, she told me that I was jealous of others.
I never realized that I had such strong jealousy. After I became blind, my heart was filled with misery. Every time when I heard others enjoying themselves, I was so jealous and even developed hatred toward people. I forgot that everything happens because of my karma.
Looking deeper inside, I found attachments to lust and saving face. With a sense of inferiority, I didn't want to step outside the door. Now, it was time for me to get rid of my attachments.
I decided to go to my daughter's home and spend New Years with my relatives. This was a good opportunity to tell them about Dafa.
At my daughter's home, I talked about the persecution of Dafa and persuaded more than 10 people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). My deciding to join my daughter's party turned out to be very worthwhile.
I thanked Master in my mind for giving me the courage to overcome the most difficult time of my life!
