Cultivating Solidly All the Way to the End
(Minghui.org) I am an elderly Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) practitioner and have been cultivating for 21 years. I would like to share my cultivation process with Master Li and my fellow practitioners.
Hosting a Small Group Fa Study for Many Years
I have been hosting a small group Fa study with four other practitioners for several years now. In all kinds of weather, we study the Fa for two hours every day from 9 p.m. till 11 p.m. I admire how serious and respectful the other practitioners are about studying the Fa.
It was raining very hard one night and I asked an 80-year-old practitioner to stay at my place for the night instead of going home. She said that she had to return because her windows were open. When she came over to my house the next day, she told me that she was reciting “Falun Dafa is good” on her way home and everything there was fine. Although she is already 80, she still goes out twice a day to clarify the truth and also keeps up with studying the Fa and doing the exercises. Even though she only sleeps only a couple of hours a night, her mental state is very good and she shows no signs of aging.
Following a Higher Standard
Our group Fa study usually ends around 11 p.m. and I normally go to bed after sending forth righteous thoughts at midnight. Ever since I started to do the second exercise for an hour instead of 30 minutes, I wake up promptly at 3 a.m. I have been doing the exercises in the morning for over a dozen years. After sending righteous thoughts at 6 a.m., I head to another small Fa study group and then go out to clarify the truth. I get home around noon for lunch. After lunch I either study the Fa, make Dafa pamphlets, or assemble truth-clarification materials. Then I prepare dinner for my daughter and head out again to clarify the truth.
I feel like time is very limited due to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, so I need to save more sentient beings. The more diligent we are, the better we can save people. As a result, I never dared to slack off in cultivation. Though I do not get much time to rest, I am very clearheaded.
Clarifying the Truth and Distributing Truth-Clarification Materials
Under Master’s encouragement, I go out every day to clarify the facts. I am grateful that Master arranges for so many predestined people to meet me. I have many emotions when I see how each person reacts to Dafa.
I clarified the truth to an illiterate young man who lives below me. Though he is illiterate, he was able to understand the truth about Falun Dafa. Because I live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, he has seen that Falun Dafa is truly good and righteous from the bottom of his heart. When he sees me, he yells out, “Falun Dafa is good!” I once asked him if he wasn’t afraid of yelling it out with so many people around. He said, “What’s there to be scared of? Falun Dafa is truly good!”
All but one of my neighborhood entrance guards has quit the CCP and its youth organizations. Whenever they see me, they always ask me for a Minghui desk or wall calendar. I did not have any on hand, but I told them not to worry because as soon as I did, I would give them one. I’ve also told them to always recite, “Falun Dafa is good.”
One time while I was clarifying the truth, I met another elderly lady who looked older than me. Her new electric scooter was not working so I told her, “You can sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and maybe your scooter will start. Let’s recite it together.” We did, and her scooter started! She said, “This is a miracle! My scooter actually started after reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good!’” I took this opportunity to clarify the truth to her and helped her quit the CCP.
There were also times when I was in danger while distributing informational materials, but under Master’s protection I was always safe.
While I was distributing truth-clarification materials one day, someone snatched my bag. He called the police when he saw that I was distributing Falun Dafa materials. We waited for a while but nobody came. I was sending righteous thoughts and asked for Master’s help. When I checked the time I saw that it was almost time to make dinner for my daughter. However, on second thought, I realized that this was an attachment of sentimentality. I strengthened my righteous thoughts while the man called the police again. The police told him that they weren’t coming and that he should handle it himself. He wanted to video record me on the phone, so I started to say, “Falun Dafa is good! These materials save people.” He walked away and I went home.
One time, I didn’t really have a destination in mind where I was going to clarify the truth and just kept walking. After a while I saw a professional-looking person come my way. I said, “I have some truth-clarification materials for you to take a look at!” He smiled and took them. After I had clarified the facts to him, he said, “Do you know where you are?” I looked around and realized that I’d walked to the local courthouse and that was where the person actually worked. I said, “You can take these materials and share them with your coworkers!” I smiled at him and left.
Master always arranges predestined people to meet me. At times when I’ve helped people quit the CCP and its youth organizations, they say things like, “How can I express my gratitude?” “Thank you very much. How can I repay you? Let me treat you to a meal.” “You are really compassionate and are still thinking about us. Please take a break!” Some even yell out, “Falun Dafa is good” after they quit.
I know that sentient beings are all expressing their gratitude to Master. It is Master who saved them and Master is encouraging me.
In my 21 years of cultivation, Master has helped me every day and I am very grateful! The CCP virus still exists and time is very tight for saving more sentient beings. I will abide by Master’s principles and continue cultivating like a genuine Dafa disciple, do the three things well, and be even more diligent as I follow the path to the end.
Thank you, Master, for your compassionate salvation!
