Taiwanese Veterinarian: My Perspective on Life Changed after I Took up Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) There are people who live their entire lives pursuing their attachments and emotions; they struggle for small material gains and life is neither carefree nor joyous.
Shunxing is a veterinarian in Taiwan. After he started to practice Falun Dafa, he was able to let go of attachments to fame and gain and is now healthier and takes life as it comes.
His wife is an elementary school teacher. She used to be in poor health before practicing Falun Dafa. She introduced the practice to Shunxing in 2005 when they first met.
With a background in science and engineering, Shunxing used to only believe in what could be proven by science. His perspective changed after studying the teachings of Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa).
He hopes that people will be able to break through their notions and understand Dafa better: “Humans think that they are in control of everything. However, some things are above what modern science can understand.”
Letting Go of Attachments to Gain
When Shunxing first read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, he enlightened that it was possible for people to live happily without stress or worries! After he made up his mind to cultivate, he was able to look at situations and issues from different perspectives.
There were plenty of opportunities for him to improve his character at work. Several coworkers often used deceitful business tactics to entice their customers into spending more money. That made Shunxing feel both uneasy and jealous at the same time.
After he began cultivating, he was no longer bothered by material losses or gains and acted according to the standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. His attachment to jealousy and feelings of unfairness eventually disappeared.
Shunxing explained, “People will feel your kindness and sincerity when you try to understand their perspective and give them the service that they actually need instead of doing unnecessary examinations. More people will eventually come to you. I have changed the most in this area.”
Becoming More Open Minded
Practicing Dafa has also helped Shunxing have a better relationship with his wife and kids. He often tells his friends that he would have filed for a divorce had it not been for Falun Dafa. He often argued with his wife. But they realized that the conflicts they encountered in life were tests and a good opportunity for them to improve.
Now, whenever he has a disagreement with someone, he reminds himself to act according to the standards of Dafa, and there won't be a problem. He no longer feels wronged when someone misunderstands him. He has also stopped arguing over who is right and who is wrong in a conflict.
When it comes to raising their children, even if they disagree on certain things, both he and his wife always base their actions on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Letting More People Know About Dafa
Shunxing now takes time out of his busy schedule to clarify the truth via the Internet to mainland Chinese. He also participates in parades in Hong Kong on the weekends. He hopes the tourists from China will have the opportunity to see the beauty and peacefulness of Falun Dafa and see through the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda.
Shunxing and his son also participated in the Washington DC Fa Conference this past summer. The conference was a good opportunity to participate in events to let more people know about the practice and the persecution. This encouraged them to be more resolved in becoming diligent in cultivation.
They were very touched to hear all of the experiences that were shared, especially by the young practitioner from China. In such a tough environment, the practitioner was not afraid of being persecuted, took the time to study the Fa, do the exercises, and clarify the truth to teachers and classmates. This encouraged Shunxing’s son to bravely talk to his classmates about the persecution.
