Kaohsiung, Taiwan: Falun Dafa Practitioners Wish Master Li Hongzhi Happy New Year, Share Cultivation Stories
(Minghui.org) With the New Year approaching, Falun Dafa practitioners from Kaohsiung, Taiwan took time to reflect on their cultivation. They held a group Fa Study and cultivation experience sharing gathering on December 29 and 30 and sent New Year greetings to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.
Teacher: My whole family is blessed by Falun Dafa
Cheng Xiang, a high school math teacher, was introduced to Falun Dafa by a friend. At the time, he was having trouble with his doctoral degree and could not get an official teaching position at the high school. He was upset. He tried to look inward and worked hard to cultivate himself and upgrade his xinxing. When he stopped complaining, his situation changed. His Ph.D. adviser suddenly agreed to help him complete his doctoral dissertation, and helped him find a research job with a high salary; at the same time, the high school offered him an official position.
By reading the teachings of Falun Dafa, Cheng Xiang learned that everything happens for a reason, and Master makes the best arrangements for practitioners. From the teachings, he understood that he needed to eliminate his attachments to reputation and fortune and improve himself.
Cheng Xiang's wife teaches at the same school he does and is also a practitioner. They have two lovely daughters. The couple share the housework and educate their children with traditional culture. Their daughters often listen to Shen Yun music and memorize Master's poems. Their children also attend Minghui school, where they study the Fa and do the exercises with other young practitioners.
Cheng Xiang goes to the local exercise site every morning. When he recently participated in a tree-climbing race held by the school, he was way ahead of the other teachers. One teacher, who previously had a negative opinion about Falun Dafa, was amazed, and told the others, “He practices Falun Dafa. That's why he has the strength to climb the tree so fast.”
“Falun Dafa has purified my body”
Huang Shuling, a local businesswoman, learned about the persecution of Falun Dafa by watching Shen Yun. She felt that she needed to speak up for practitioners who follow the teachings of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She also began practicing Falun Dafa.
Ms. Huang had stomach pain for years and had trouble sleeping at night. Taking painkillers did not help. When she began practicing Dafa and learned the sitting meditation the stomach pain became intense. Then, to her surprise, the pain quickly disappeared and did not return.
On one occasion, Ms. Huang helped her brother clean up his house after it was flooded. Her hands were injured and became inflamed, with oozing pus. She persisted in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. The skin on her hands peeled off layer by layer, and new skin grew. Her hands were completely healed, with soft, smooth skin. In addition, the skin disease that she had suffered from since she was a child also disappeared.
Fortunate to Find Falun Dafa
Many practitioners shared similar stories. They thanked Master Li for bringing such a wonderful cultivation practice to the world. They affirmed that they will continue to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in 2020, and focus on saving people.
