Taiwan: College Student Confident in His Future Thanks to Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) Compared to many college students, Yang Jiacheng is exceptionally mature when it comes to moral self-restraint and life goals.
The information management major at Huahsia Science and Technology University says he feels lucky to have learned the practice of Falun Gong early in life, which gives him the courage to face the future.
Yang Jiacheng has been practicing Falun Gong with his grandparents since kindergarten. However, he says he didn't get really serious about practicing until high school.
“I had a chance to study dance, and I found that if I practice Falun Gong seriously, the peaceful mind really helps me to improve my dance skill,” Jiacheng said.
Since then, Jiacheng has been trying to follow the teachings of Falun Gong, among which the most important one is to look inward for one's own fault when facing conflicts.
Jiacheng said, “In school, I used to go along with the trends of my peers and sometimes used foul language. Through practicing Falun Gong, I've come to understand why this is wrong, so I try to restrain my behavior and speech.”
Jiacheng was worried that hanging out with classmates would have a bad effect on his practice, so he isolated himself. But he later realized this was wrong. One cannot practice Falun Gong in isolation.
“Everybody I know has a predestined relationship with me,” he said, “so I should try to get along with everybody. This way, they will have a chance to know about Falun Gong. Now I have a lot of friends.
“Falun Gong teaches me to consider others first, and I always try to do this,” he said.
Once in a team project for class, Jiacheng and his team members were supposed to finish a report. Each of them had to finish their own parts, and then the team had to come up with a summary. Everybody focused on their individual reports, but only Jiacheng worked on the summary.
One week before the deadline, the team members realized that they hadn't started the summary. While the others were panicking, Jiacheng took out what he had done and saved the day.
Jiacheng's positive attitude influenced some of his classmates and created a positive environment for studying.
Jiacheng said, “I will keep following Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and do my school work well,” he said. “I don't have to worry about the future!”
