My Daughter's Path of Cultivation
(Minghui.org) “She is such a good girl, courteous, kind, pure and so beautiful.” These are some of the comments about our daughter that I have heard from people in our village.
Wanting My Daughter to Learn Dafa
A Falun Dafa practitioner gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, in the Spring of 1998. When I read “neither will real danger be allowed to happen to you.” (Zhuan Falun), I felt a sense of relief.
My daughter was five years old and her school was a bit far, so I was worried for her safety. I thought that if she practiced Falun Dafa, she would be safe. That was my understanding at the very beginning of my cultivation. Later I realized that was a very shallow understanding, as Master protects all true cultivators.
Predestined Relationship with Dafa
My daughter listened attentively whenever I read the Fa teachings to her. When I read to her, she could see the characters light up one line after another. I was surprised—she had a predestined relationship with Dafa!
I began seriously practicing Falun Dafa myself and went to the group exercise site to learn the movements. I came home to teach my daughter while I was cooking. I was so focused on cooking that I forgot about her. She was doing the standing stance in another room with her hands above her head for over 20 minutes! When I realized it and found her, her hands were shaking but still up above her head, and tears were running down her face. I felt bad that I had forgotten her, but was also very impressed with my daughter's endurance at such a young age.
A year later, in July 1999, the persecution began. When my daughter saw all the slanderous propaganda on television, she told me to turn off the TV and said that we should not look at it. She had a clear sense of right and wrong, even at such a tender age.
Purifying the Body
I contracted a serious viral infection when I was pregnant with my daughter, so my doctor, worried the child would have serious problems, suggested an abortion. Since I had a heart problem, nobody wanted to do the abortion. When my daughter was born, she was perfectly healthy.
When she was five to six months old, she developed a rash that got infected and ulcerated. We ran all over town seeking the best treatment, which resulted in very limited relief. The ointment had to be applied to her entire body. Our hearts were broken for what she had to go through.
In the spring of 2000, after she had become a practitioner, my daughter suddenly had a high fever. After that she had hives all over her body, including the undersides of her eyelids and inside her nose. Whenever she coughed, her nose would bleed. I was worried and asked her if she needed to go see a doctor. She quietly but firmly told me: “Master is cleansing my body, I am not going anywhere.” Soon after that, her condition went away completely!
Growing and Maturing on the Basis of the Fa Teachings
My daughter was an excellent student, and she was forced to join the Youth League when she was in sixth grade. When the initiative to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations began, she quit the Youth League at her school. The school administrator and officials at the county education bureau wanted to talk to her. She told me that she was not afraid, but we still prepared a letter stating why she quit the Youth League. Maybe our xinxing improved, because they never talked to her like they'd threatened.
We did the three things together through the years, letting people know how wonderful Falun Dafa is and the truth about the persecution.
When I was persecuted and incarcerated, she was going to high school. She took care of herself and her schoolwork. She wrote a letter to encourage me: “I do not know what's happened to this world. There are things I want to say and yet I can't; things I can say but I don't want to say. I just want you to be a strong mother. Do not worry about me, everything will be all right.”
In March of this year, my daughter went for a job interview and was hired on the spot. They would pay her over three thousand yuan more than her current job. But she had to start the following Monday and her old company wouldn't have enough time to hire a replacement. She felt that she could not do that to her previous employer, so she chose to interview for another job.
Again, she had a very successful interview and they wanted her. She would be paid four thousand more this time and they gave her enough time to finish the job for her previous employer. Thank you, Master! As long as we improve, we can feel Master's encouragement.
I no longer worry about my daughter. She is Master's disciple, and she has been solidly walking the path of cultivation with diligence and conviction.
