Taking Cultivation Seriously
Husband: Dafa Is Truly Amazing
Before I practiced Dafa, I suffered from many ailments, but could not visit a hospital, given my financial situation. I did not expect to be cured by Dafa and was amazed by recovering from all my health issues without medical intervention.
Therefore, I diligently studied the Fa and did the exercises. Every night I went to the group Fa-study. I came to understand that one has to cultivate one's xinxing.
My husband was unemployed, drank, slept a lot, and watched television until very late at night. Because of that, we used to argue a lot, and I always gained the upper hand. I knew that I had to change and assimilate to the Fa principles.
“Forbearance is the key to improving one’s xinxing. To endure with anger, grievance, or tears is the forbearance of an everyday person who is attached to his concerns. To endure completely without anger or grievance is the forbearance of a cultivator.” (“What is Forbearance (Ren)?” from Essentials For Further Advancement)
“Do you realize that as long as you’re a cultivator, in any environment or under any circumstances, I will use any troubles or unpleasant things you come across—even if they involve work for Dafa, or no matter how good or sacred you think they are—to eliminate your attachments and expose your demon-nature so that it can be eliminated” (“Further Understanding” from Essentials For Further Advancement)
When I changed, my husband's attitude also improved. After a fight I remained calm. He said, “You have changed since practicing Dafa. This Dafa is truly amazing! Please keep it up. I give you my full support!”
Clarifying the Facts about Dafa
In July 1999, Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, launched the persecution of Falun Dafa. In response, many local practitioners went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Dafa.
I decided to go to Beijing in November 2000. When we were transferring to another train at Shenyang Train Station, we were arrested, taken back to our hometown, and held in a detention center.
I was held for 22 days and fined 1,000 yuan. They also confiscated my property ownership certificate. Not only that, they threatened to fire my sister if I were to go again.
Instead of going to Beijing, we began to clarify the truth about Dafa in our area, distributed informational brochures, and hung up banners telling about the goodness of Dafa.
Two years ago, I mailed a criminal complaint to the Supreme Peoples Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate.
Besides the above, I also participated in sending recorded messages over the phone to tell people about Dafa and the persecution. Then, I talked to people over the phone.
The process of making phone calls is also a process of improving one's xinxing, There were people who swore or used bad language. But there were also many who expressed their gratitude after quitting the CCP.
An elderly man asked me why I fought with the CCP. I told him that practitioners were doing this to help people tell right from wrong. I told him about the staged “self-immolation” incident, and how the CCP has been harvesting organs from living practitioners.
He wondered why he should quit the CCP at his age. I said, “To live longer is what your children would hope for. By quitting the Party, you will benefit greatly.” He quit the Party.
Becoming a Dafa Practitioner
A few years ago, we leased a bus and ran a transportation business. An elderly man often took our bus to go to the county to buy medication. When he was too weak to make the trip, he asked us to get his medication.
We told them about the goodness of Dafa and the benefits those who practiced it experienced.
Then I encouraged him to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
His son told me seven days later that his father's health had improved. I asked to tell his father to continue reciting the Dafa sentences. A few days later we were told that the man could again work in the fields.
I gave the father an MP3 player and Master Li's (the founder) Fa-lecture recordings. The elderly couple began to practice Dafa.
