(Minghui.org) I first ran into Falun Dafa in 2015, thanks to a Falun Gong art exhibition held in my workplace. The beauty of the paintings, and the clarity and firmness with which they showed a frightening truth, caught my attention. When a practitioner spoke to me about the relationship between the paintings and the practice of Falun Dafa, I knew that I had to learn it, since I felt it was something I had been looking for all along.

I was experiencing health problems at the time. My stress level was high, and my health was declining. Although my attitude had always been not to visit doctors or take medication unless it was absolutely necessary, I felt that meditation could help me eliminate the stress, which I knew was the source of my poor health.

I saw improvements in my health in a short time. I felt I should not miss any opportunity to attend the group practice. I felt that every Fa study session was valuable to me. I quickly became involved in some of the Falun Dafa activities and projects in gratitude for all the benefits I saw reflected in my body, my thoughts, and my actions.

As we studied the Fa teachings in a group, my understandings of Zhuan Falun became a beacon in my life, which helped me improve my moral values and my way of acting with others. I got the answers to the questions I had all my life. It was as if Falun Dafa had always been there, waiting for me, waiting for the right time for me to find it.

Eventually, I learned a lot about what practicing Falun Dafa means, and I eventually understood the great cultivation path that Master Li Hongzhi has arranged for me.

I quickly discarded several attachments, and that helped me to better save people. In dangerous situations, I saw how Master Li protects us and sometimes I also saw majestic scenes with my third eye.

Words can't express the gratitude I have for Master's endless benevolence and my fellow practitioners who accompany me on this path.

Through cultivation, I've managed to overcome some of my attachments, such as the fear of losing face in front of my co-workers and not letting things happen naturally. I am working to eliminate my human notions and elevate my xinxing. Thanks to the practice, I have eliminated the attachments to anxiety, loneliness, and lust.

In the university where I teach, there is a colleague who never follows our supervisors' instructions. But she was assigned the task of coordinating an event, which involved all the teachers and students in the educational program to which I belong. Most of the logistics fell on me. I understood that this was a very clear opportunity to cultivate myself and elevate my xinxing. During the event, I dealt with each tribulation presented to me with benevolence. The event went relatively well.

My co-worker understood that my cooperation at the event was not affected by our lack of friendship, nor was it affected by the confrontations that had occurred between us in the past. My commitment to the success of this event was part of my job, and I had to do it like a cultivator, for my students and the success of the event itself. She also understood that her attitude had to change. Now my co-worker is following our superiors' instructions. That is to say, her heart has changed.

There are so many things that I cannot list them all. Many of the experiences I have had were meant to lead to improvement in my cultivation. But I want to add that my gratitude to Falun Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi is boundless. Thank you.
