Growing Up in Dafa and Doing the Three Things Well
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa at the age of nine in 1998. After I started working in 2012, I wanted to keep in contact with local practitioners, so I could keep up with the Fa-rectification.
After graduating, I signed a contract with the first company that offered me a job. Then I was offered two more jobs with better pay and benefits. However, I did not breach my contract with the railway. This job allowed me more time to study the Fa teachings, do the exercises, and clarify the truth about Falun Dafa.
The company arranged for all new employees to attend one week of training. They booked a room for all the female employees in a small motel. My colleague asked me to go to the supermarket with her. This was a perfect opportunity to talk about Dafa and quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which she did. I later clarified the truth to another coworker, who also quit the Party.
Finding the Opportunity for Fa Study
As I shared a room with a few other female colleagues, I could not do the exercises. Perhaps Master saw my wish, as we were offered a small, airless room, which no one wanted. I moved to this room and could resume doing the exercises.
My work hours were flexible, and I had a lot of time for Fa study. Within two months, I read all of Master’s lectures several times. I also found a local Fa study group. My coworker Ma saw me do the exercises, got interested, and even read Zhuan Falun.
I was transferred to another city in 2013 and assigned to the maintenance department. It wasn’t difficult. I was assigned regular work hours, no shift work, and had double breaks.
When there was nothing to do, my coworkers would often watch television or surf social media. I studied the teachings and clarified the truth. When my coworkers were on their lunch break, I went to an empty room on the second floor to send righteous thoughts at noon.
Every Tuesday and Thursday, I clarify the truth on the phone. A man sent me a text after I talked to him about Dafa, “Ma’am, it was really nice speaking with you. Thank you. I wish you all the best.” I was very touched.
It is not difficult to fulfill my responsibilities as a practitioner. It takes me an hour or two each time to make truth-clarification phone calls. I really cherish this opportunity that Master has given me.
When my cultivation state is not good, I look inward in a timely manner and send forth righteous thoughts.
I was reassigned to another, temporary job in mid-May 2018. When I took the subway in the morning, I carried truth-clarification materials with me that I distributed in the neighborhood during lunch.
In the heat of summer, I got lazy. But after studying the Fa I realized my responsibility. I had to hold righteous thoughts in my heart and distribute fliers in apartment buildings. I’d slowly work my way down and never miss a unit. In the daytime, I would start with one or two buildings in the apartment complex and then move on to the next complex. If I ran out of fliers, I would remember where I left off and distribute to the rest of the apartments the next day.
Master Hints in Dreams
I had a dream in 2014 that I was in a hurry to board a plane to somewhere for a retest. I was packing my belongings, and it seemed like I could never finish packing. I looked at my watch, and my flight was due to leave in 10 minutes. In the dream, I still wanted to continue packing, as if I wanted to miss my flight.
In another dream in 2015, I was waiting to board the plane. In the dream, it was 2016 and I was on the plane, but it wasn’t full—there were still empty seats. That was a hint from Master that there were more people to be saved. It didn't matter where, but they needed to be saved.
