Cultivation Practice Can Dissolve Icebergs
(Minghui.org) When I was young, I had the ability to see some things with my third eye.
In 1994, a relative took me to a qigong class. During the class, I could see [in another dimension] trash, broken mats, and torn bags strewn on the stage. I thought maybe it was because I hadn't yet paid for the class. I paid for the class the next day but still saw the same things.
On the way home that day, an old man sitting on a stone and shouting with his back to me said, “Why did you enter the wrong door?” I looked around and did not see anyone else and thought he must be talking to me. It occurred to me that maybe I shouldn't attend the qigong class anymore. Since then, I have not participated in any other qigong classes.
Later, I was able to heal diseases for people but didn't know how or why I had this ability. I cured heart diseases, liver cirrhosis, removed tumors, and so on. This ability didn't make me feel happy, nor did I accept any fees from the many people I cured.
One day, however, I saw that both my arms and hands were black in another dimension. Didn't that indicate disease? My body used to be pure white. After that, I stopped treating illnesses for others.
In Tears Listening to Master's Lectures
In May 1995, a Falun Gong practitioner came to my home and gave me the audio recordings of Master Li's lectures in Jinan. He told me that they were very good. While listening to the first lecture, my tears began to flow as soon as Master started talking.
As I listened to each lecture, I saw [with my third eye] a man wearing a suit in front of me. The more I listened to the recordings, the more I loved to listen to them. This was just what I had been looking for. I listened to all 14 tapes in tears.
All the answers to my questions were in the lectures. I had found a righteous Fa! How fortunate I was; Master had saved me.
From then on, I behaved according to Master's teachings and began cultivating and rectifying my character. Master helped to purify my body and mind.
When I first obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun, I saw that the image of Master Li in the book was the same as the person I had seen when listening to the lectures. I was very excited.
I became the volunteer coordinator in my area. My two children also took up the practice that year.
Walking through Persecution with Righteous Thoughts
In November 1999, I went to Beijing to validate that Dafa is righteous and good. Officers from the local Beijing police department handcuffed me and escorted me to a detention center where they attempted to force me to “transform.” I was not moved by their efforts. Instead, I told them that we practitioners cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and are the most righteous people in the world!
When I returned home, my husband hit me because he was afraid. My eyes and face were black and blue.
Later, I was detained in my work unit. I explained the facts about Falun Gong to all the managers and the people who monitored me. They were very kind to me later. I was allowed to go home within a few days. They also sent my salary to my home. I knew this was Master encouraging me.
My family runs a busy convenience store. The store became a good place for me to tell people the facts about the persecution. People from the local 610 Office, local police station, and my work unit came to harass me in turn. No matter who came to my home, I told them the truth.
In the beginning, my husband would beat and kick me in front of people to stop me from talking about Falun Gong. I was not afraid and continued to clarify the facts with a compassionate heart. Later, my husband thought what I said made sense so he helped me talk to people about the persecution.
Once, a mayor came to my home and politely asked me to not practice. I smiled back and said, “I will cultivate well.” The last person to leave was from the local police department. He smiled and shook my hand.
The leader of my work unit came back after he left and said, “I remembered Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” The local government also put a sign reading "Model Family" in our store. I was very happy to see people's kindness after they learned the truth.
One day in 2003, a fellow practitioner's husband sent a large package containing Dafa books and CDs to my home. At that time, his wife and daughter had been sent to jail because they practiced Falun Gong. At about 7 a.m. the next day, I heard a voice repeatedly saying, “Don't take it lightly.” I understood immediately and hid all the books and CDs.
Within less than an hour, a group of police officers came to my home. They asked me to go to the station and have a talk. I said, “What do you want to talk about? Why not talk here if you want to talk?” They insisted that I go with them.
I asked them to wait outside so I could change my clothes and hurriedly hid the Dafa book that I had been reading the night before. I looked around the room and asked Master for help. I also continuously sent righteous thoughts.
At the police station, someone asked, “Who do you have contact with?” I replied, “I am in contact with my husband.” He asked again, “Didn't So-and-so give you something yesterday?” I said again, “I only keep in touch with my husband.” He was very angry but had no evidence to record.
When I went to the washroom, the person who followed me there said, “I just cannot believe it. You are a well known Falun Gong practitioner in this area. However, we searched your home for almost four hours but couldn't find anything.” I understood that it was Master's blessing. Master is right beside us, as he wrote in Hong Yin Vol. II,
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond”)
They sent me back home at 3 p.m. where I found our place had been ransacked by the police. A quilt, the mattress, and clothing were strewn on the floor. All the cabinets were open and the books my children used were everywhere. However, the Dafa books were amazingly untouched.
Cultivation Practice Can Dissolve Icebergs
In 2003, my son had a girlfriend. She knew that our home was once ransacked, but she didn't oppose our cultivation practice. Soon after she married my son, I found she had a bad temper and often yelled at me. I would go into another room whenever she yelled and return when she stopped. I never fought with her. I would try to tell her stories to educate her when she was in a good mood.
I went to live with my daughter in another city in 2005 and visited my son once or twice a year. Sometimes, my daughter-in-law would complain to my son while we were on the phone. I would ask her to give the phone to my son and then told him to be a good husband and treat his wife well.
Once, I went to visit my son's home. My daughter-in-law was making steamed bread and she started yelling as soon as she saw me. I looked at her calmly. She turned and stared at me as I continued looking at her calmly. She wasn't that angry but kept yelling. I remained unmoved until she finally stopped. I told her that I needed to leave and she replied, “Then leave.”
The next time I visited them, she announced, “Mom, let me cook some dumplings for you. Would you also like some dessert?” I said, “I am not hungry yet.” She then pleaded, “Please stay with us if you come back in the future.” I agreed I would.
She never yelled after that. In the past, she hadn't called me Mom or offered me food. Cultivation practice is so great. It can dissolve icebergs!
