(Minghui.org) My job is in sales and I’m a supervisor. I started to practice Falun Gong in 2010.
As a Dafa practitioner, I strive to conduct myself by the Fa requirements and always take others into consideration whenever issues arise. I always try my best to help out whenever my co-workers need assistance and I look within when I run into conflicts.
Everyone at work knows that I am kind and that I do things differently from others. They all know that I am a Falun Gong practitioner.
I have clarified the facts to all my colleagues and they all know that Falun Gong is good. Three of them have even started to practice Falun Gong and have been very diligent in cultivation and in doing well the three things.
I once went to a business conference out of town with the manager, and we shared a room. When I did the exercises in the evening, she followed along and did them with me. Even though she is not a practitioner, she knows the facts about Falun Gong and is very supportive.
To reduce stress, our department has set aside 20 minutes a day after our morning meeting to do exercises as a group. Usually, they did calisthenics.
One day, the manager who did the exercises with me during the conference suggested, “It’s exercise time now. Sister Liu (what they call me at work), play the music so that we can do the exercises.” I knew it was, in fact, an encouragement from Master. So I started to play the Falun Gong exercise music.
One colleague said something quietly to another one, and then the two of them stopped participating. Two days later, they began to do calisthenics.
I thought, “This co-worker is very kind and she knows the facts about Falun Gong. Why would she oppose us doing the exercises?” I started to look within and found that I could not keep a calm mind when sending righteous thoughts the last few days and I was bothered by the thought that my righteous thoughts did not have any effect. This thought interfered with me a lot, and my dimensional field was not clear.
At group Fa study that evening, a fellow practitioner shared that each time she came across interference, she was able to distinguish what was her problem and what wasn’t.
Her sharing helped me a lot. I thought, “Master has told us very clearly that “Dafa disciples’ righteous thoughts are powerful.” (Essentials for Further Advancement II) I believe in Master and Dafa, so the thought, “My righteous thoughts do not have any effect” was definitely not mine—it was evil interference.
With a clearer understanding, I sent righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference that evening and felt my mind had become a lot clearer and my righteous thoughts strong again.
The next morning, the manager said, “It’s time to exercise. Let’s do calisthenics.”
The colleague who didn't want to do the Falun Gong exercises earlier said, “I've had pain all over the last couple of days from doing calisthenics. Can we ask Sister Liu to teach us the Falun Gong exercises?” The manager agreed.
Falun Gong exercise music has echoed throughout our workplace ever since, and once again we are doing the exercises together.
