My Environment Changes When I Look Within
(Minghui.org) It has been almost 20 years since I started practicing Falun Dafa, and I have experienced many miracles along the way.
In the fall of 1998, I heard from others that Falun Dafa was very effective in curing illness and keeping fit, so I thought I would give it a try as I was not very healthy at the time. However, when I studied more of the Fa I realized that this is a righteous cultivation method, which surpasses modern science.
It teaches people to cultivate their virtue by following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance to be a good person. Shortly after I started practicing, all my illnesses disappeared. I was so excited and overjoyed every day.
My Husband Recovers from Illness
My husband was diagnosed with diabetes in 2016, and his vision worsened shortly after that. Before his diagnosis, he loved to dance every day, but he couldn't anymore and felt upset. I told him, “I've cultivated for more than 20 years and haven't taken a single medication. You've seen this with your own eyes. You should start practicing Falun Dafa.”
We set up a satellite receiver at home a few days later, so we could watch NTD, an independent Chinese-language television station with uncensored news and programs and truthful information about Falun Dafa. My husband enjoyed one of the programs and learned a lot about Falun Dafa through watching it.
A practitioner came to my home every evening to study the Fa. We studied Hong Yin together, and my husband sat alongside us and listened. Afterwards, he commented, “Your master is so talented.”
My husband listened to Master's lecture while lying on the sofa one day. I told him that he shouldn't listen to the Fa this way as, “It's not respecting Master. You should sit up.” He replied that he couldn't, so I promptly answered, “Then you just lie there forever.”
These words led to a big tribulation. My husband developed serious health problems and was confined to bed for a month. The doctors said that he was short of potassium and proteins which led to this extreme weakness. I realized that my words made my husband believe that he was ill. I wanted to apologize to him, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
I looked inward and found my attachment to complacency. I shared this with other practitioners and they recommended that I let go of my ego and apologize to my husband.
I went to the hospital the next day and told my husband that I was wrong, “I didn't know that you were so ill. I thought you were being disrespectful to Master. I was not considerate of you and my words were not kind.”
My husband was touched upon hearing this. This was because I looked inward. My husband fully recovered early the next morning. He was excited and thought it was a miracle. Master said, “...looking within is a magical tool.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference IX)
Anything that happens around me is arranged for my cultivation. If I cultivate well, the environment will change and my family members will change.
My Son and Daughter-in-Law Expecting a Baby
I am seventy years old this year and I am very healthy. I can take care of my spouse without any help from our children. My two sons have very good jobs and they are both very respectful of us.
One son has been married for ten years, but never had a child. In December 2017, he and his wife went to the hospital to see if she was pregnant. That night I had a vivid dream, where I was told that my daughter-in-law was pregnant with a boy.
I told this dream to my daughter-in-law, and she said the results were not available yet. The second morning, my son called me and said that his wife was pregnant. Both my son and my daughter-in-law now support me in practicing Dafa and even remind me to send forth righteous thoughts when it's time.
Suing Jiang Zemin
Some fellow practitioners and I shared our understanding in May 2015, and thought that it was time to sue Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party, for initiating the persecution of Falun Dafa. Even practitioners who did not often communicate with other practitioners agreed to sue Jiang.
Typically, one practitioner would help three or four other practitioners to prepare their criminal complaint letters. Finally, all practitioners in our region filed a criminal complaint to the Supreme People's Court or the Supreme People's Procuratorate.
Because all practitioners managed to rid themselves of the attachment of fear and life and death, no one was interfered with by the police. We had improved as one body. Even the 610 Office told us that we could sue whoever we wanted to, and they wouldn't care.
After we filed the lawsuit, the environment changed significantly. Usually, we only distributed 200-300 truth-clarification calendars from October to the end of the year. But in 2015, we distributed over 4,000 calendars and hung more than 300 banners.
Practitioners felt that their physical symptoms of fear had been significantly lessened, and were very grateful that Master helped us to make a big breakthrough.
Whenever sentient beings contribute a little bit to Dafa, Master gives them the very best. As practitioners, we need to cultivate well and not be attached to anything. Master has arranged everything for us; we just need to follow his path.
