A Farmer Talks about Her Cultivation Journey: “Master Is Always with Me”
(Minghui.org) I am a farmer and live in the countryside. One day a Falun Dafa practitioner from my village came to me and said, “There is a very good person who cannot go home. Can you help him by taking him in for a while? He will help you with the farm work without pay.” I asked why such a good person could not go back home. He replied, “He is a Falun Dafa practitioner. The police station tried to arrest him for practicing. Because they practice Falun Dafa they have healthy bodies and save China a lot in medical expenses. They are kind people who do not fight with others for personal gain. However the Communist Party chairman is afraid that they may take its power. So it slanders Falun Dafa and arrests practitioners.” I was very angry about what the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was doing, and also felt bad that the practitioners were being unfairly treated. The police did not really try to find criminals but instead hunted down and arrested good people. I agreed to take in the practitioner.
The practitioner arrived that evening. He thanked us for helping him. I apologized that my place was remote and the conditions were not ideal. He said he did not mind. My husband and I chatted that night, “What is Falun Dafa? Is it really so good that he would rather lose his job, and not go back home with his family?” We did not understand.
We later talked with the practitioner. He told us that he used to have a severe illness, and underwent major surgeries, but they did not help. He was in so much pain that he even thought of suicide. After he started to practice Falun Dafa all his illnesses were resolved. He saved the health system a lot of medical expenses. In addition, he no longer had a bad temper and his family became harmonious.
He also told us that the biggest benefit of practicing Falun Dafa is becoming a truly good person and reaching the realms of Buddhas. When I heard the words “Buddhas,” I was shocked. My uncle was a famous fortune teller and told me many years before that I would be helped by gods and Buddhas. My husband and I were so excited that we could not sleep. I decided to practice Falun Dafa. Although my husband did not practice, he understood the greatness of Dafa. He let go of many bad habits and helped me clarify the truth.
Forming a Fa-Study Group and Materials Site
After I began practicing Falun Dafa, our farming business went better every day and so did our lives. Every day I studied the Fa and practiced the exercises, besides working in the field. The practitioner told us, “You should go back home in the village and organize all the practitioners to study the Fa as a group.” I agreed and said, “I will do what Master wants.”
Since our farm was in a rural area, we did not know much about what was going on. We later learned that the Fa-study group in the village had been destroyed by the CCP. I talked with the practitioners and they agreed to form a new Fa-study group at my home. Local practitioners once again had a place to study the Fa, practice the exercises, and talk about their experiences.
Master told us, “You play the leading role in this period of history.” (“Walk Straight Your Path,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol. III) . We must do the three things well and save more people at this critical moment in history. I felt I was really behind other practitioners and I had to hurry up. I realized there were very limited sources of truth-clarifying materials for local practitioners and decided to purchase the machines to produce them. I did not have the knowledge, but I decided to learn. I truly believe that our practitioners during the Fa-Rectification period can do anything. The materials site was finally successfully established at my home and the practitioners can now read Minghui Weekly and hand out truth-clarifying materials.
Eliminating Posters Which Slander Dafa
One day in 2014, a practitioner told me that there was a poster in a village office which slandered Dafa and Master. At night, we went together to the village and eventually got rid of the posters. I really appreciate the practitioner sending forth righteous thoughts and helping me out.
Another practitioner told me one day in 2018 that there was a poster with cartoons on a hospital's bulletin which slandered Dafa. I realized it was not a coincidence that I heard this. I must still have the attachment of fear, which would affect my cultivation seriously, and I needed to eliminate it. I studied the Fa and recited Hong Yin for a few days. I understood that the fear was not me and I needed to eliminate it. One day I decided to get rid of the poster in the hospital, and asked Master to strengthen me. When I went to the hospital it was like the person on duty did not see me at all. I went to the poster and noticed two people sitting below it. After I went around and came back, they were gone. I asked Master again to help me, and I immediately tore down the poster and cartoons. When I left the hospital, the person on duty was looking at his phone. Master helped me again.
Master Helps Me Get Home
I went to a place far away from my village to pass out truth-clarifying materials in August 2019. Some people thanked me, others invited me to drink some water at their home. Some did not accept what I said, and even scolded me. It was like what Master said,
“Wandering around in society is rather torturous. It must beg for food and run into different kinds of people who will scold, insult, or take advantage of it. It might encounter all kinds of things.” (Lecture Eight, Zhuan Falun)
Although I was tired and thirsty, I felt very happy to save more people. It would soon be dark but I still had two booklets. I asked Master to send a predestined person to me before I headed back. Just then, I saw two men getting off work. I went up and chatted with them, “I would like two minutes of your time to tell you something important. Have you heard that millions of Chinese are withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations?” They said they heard about it but did not believe it. I continued, “It's true. You look like good people. Please think about it. Every CCP official in China is corrupt. Ordinary people struggle to survive. Although you are no longer Young Pioneers, you wore the Young Pioneer scarf in elementary school and swore to give your life for the Party. You must negate the oath you made when you joined the Young Pioneers or other CCP-affiliated organizations to keep from being implicated for the Party's crimes.” They finally understood, and said, “We also joined the Communist Youth League. Please help us to withdraw from it too.” I happily agreed. I sensed their real joy and I gave them the last two brochures. They thanked me and left. I was happy for them and also truly grateful for the practitioners who clarified the truth to them before and built a good foundation.
It was already dark and I could not remember how to get back home. While I was wondering, a white car approached me. At first I thought it might be a police car, and maybe someone reported me to the police. Then I realized this thought was not righteous, since I was doing the most righteous thing, which is saving people.
The car stopped in front of me and I was surprised to see my nephew step out. He had come to the area for some business and happened to see me. I told him I could not find my way back home. He told me, “I'll give you a ride.” I realized that Master is always beside me and helping me. I immediately shed tears of gratitude to Master.
