Falun Dafa Changed My View of Life
(Minghui.org) I was born shortly after 1990. My view of life has completely changed after two years of practicing Falun Dafa. I am deeply grateful to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder and teacher of Falun Dafa. The following are some of my cultivation experiences that I want to share:
Fortunate to Obtain Falun Dafa
I first encountered Falun Dafa in October 2014. I had no previous knowledge of it. A person I trusted gave me some Dafa materials that I browsed through.
I did not begin to practice until the spring of 2015. I watched the videos of Master’s lectures in Guangzhou. I was surprised and felt that Master was wise and kind. His voice pierced my heart, and every word touched me. I wondered how teachings from 20 years ago could still have such profound and rich content? I finished the videos and then obtained a copy of the main book of Falun Dafa – Zhuan Falun – and began to read.
Good Health after Practicing Falun Dafa
It took me a while to learn all the exercises. I did not have anyone to teach me, and I was lazy about teaching myself. After I was able to do the first exercise, my excruciating arthritis disappeared and I felt light.
I have suffered from rhinitis ever since I was young. I often sneezed and had a runny, stuffy nose. I took many medications. My sinus problems made sleeping difficult. After I learned the set of five exercises, I could breath freely and my head felt refreshed. I knew my body was being purified because I was practicing Falun Dafa.
Eliminating an Attachment
Sometimes when I saw a handsome man, I would become infatuated and would spend a lot of time thinking about him. I even had a crush on a handsome actor I saw on TV. One night after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I had a dream about this handsome actor. I chased after him to get an autograph. When I caught up to him and he turned around, his face was distorted and ugly.
When I woke up from the nightmare, I knew it was a warning. As a practitioner, I needed to control myself and not let attachments and illusion control me. I thought of what Master said:
“Let me give you an example. In Buddhism, it is said that every phenomenon in human society is illusory and unreal. How are they illusions? Real and concrete physical objects are placed right here, so who would claim that they are false? A physical object’s form of existence appears like this, but the way it actually manifests is not.” (Zhuan Falun)
Soon I was able to let go of my attachment to him.
Grateful for Finding Another Practitioner
I cultivated on my own for a long time. I felt that my improvement was slow and I wanted to find other practitioners. An elderly lady came to my place of employment a couple weeks later. She was there to tell us about Falun Dafa. I held her hands in mine and felt emotional and deeply grateful.
Enlightened by Dafa
I had a dream in which I was sound asleep when a fellow practitioner woke me. We were surrounded by gloomy people who were preoccupied with thinking about money, profit, and sentimentality. They were unaware they were being controlled by all their attachments.
I enlightened that I needed to go out to talk to people about Dafa. It is my responsibility to let people know that Dafa is beautiful and can cleanse our hearts and bring prosperity to human society. I cannot let anyone miss out on being awakened by Dafa.
