Breaking Through China's Internet Firewall and Finding Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I learned Falun Dafa after I used software to break through the Chinese regime's “Great Internet Firewall.”
At the beginning, I was just curious to see what was going on outside of China. Eventually, I came across the documentary False Fire and learned that the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident was actually staged by the government to frame Falun Dafa. I was shocked and became to determined to learn what Falun Dafa was really all about.
I had heard about the Minghui website a long time ago, but couldn't access it because of the internet firewall. Now that I had the means to access it, I could visit the Minghui.org website and read articles by Falun Dafa practitioners on their experiences with the practice.
I downloaded the exercise music and learned the exercises by watching the free instructional video online. I have done the Falun Dafa exercises at home every day since then.
I don't like physical exercise, and I used to feel really tired when I had to do any physical work. Since I've been practicing Falun Dafa, I've had endless of energy and it is truly a miracle.
Master Li Hongzhi (founder of Falun Dafa) said:
“So if somebody just does these few sets of movements every day, you think he counts as a Falun Dafa disciple? Probably not. The reason is, when you truly cultivate you have to discipline yourself with that character standard we talk about, you have to really improve your own character, and then, and only then, is it true cultivation.” (Zhuan Falun, The Third Talk)
Master Li used very simple and easy to understand language to teach the spiritual principles of Falun Dafa. I downloaded Zhuan Falun and Essentials for Further Advancement to my smart phone and read them daily. I try to apply the core principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance every day to improve my heart and mind.
Master also said:
“When people show the appropriate respect and reverence toward Dafa as it manifests here in this world, they, their race, or their nation will enjoy blessings or honor.” (Zhuan Falun, On Dafa)
I am so fortunate to be able to learn Falun Dafa. I will be diligent in this spiritual cultivation for the rest of my life!
