My Determination to Cultivate in Dafa
(Minghui.org) My sister-in-law started practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. I often listened to her telling miraculous stories about Dafa practitioners when she returned to her parents' home. I read Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, and thought it was good, but I put the book aside and didn't read it again.
In 2015, I sought out my sister-in-law who worked in a hospital. I was experiencing lower abdominal pain, so she asked a doctor she knew to examine me. The doctor said that I had a gynecological disease, and it was very serious. At the time, I thought: My sister-in-law told me that Falun Dafa can heal illnesses and helps people stay fit, so why don't I practice Dafa?
Making a Commitment
I told her and her husband that I wanted to learn Dafa and didn't want to see a doctor anymore. She was very pleased, but her husband said. “Your character may not be suitable for learning it. You have a hot temper, and you're very competitive.”
“I will change!” I replied. “I want to cultivate in Dafa and prove it to you!”
My sister-in-law called me to get the exam results two days later. I said: “I don't need them now. I don't care what the results show. I am now practicing Dafa.”
After I got home, I took out the exercise instruction DVD that she previously gave me. I watched the exercises taught by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder, and slowly followed the movements. It was difficult at first, but the more I practiced, the more comfortable I felt. Gradually, I could keep up with the practice music and copy the correct movements. I learned all five exercises in a few days; it felt like Master was patiently teaching me.
My sister-in-law saw that I was serious about cultivating Dafa, so she called a practitioner close to my home and asked her to check on my exercise movements. My determination to practice Falun Dafa was very strong. I got up to do the exercises around 3 a.m. every day. I felt light and very comfortable. A few months later, at the suggestion of the practitioner, I joined a Fa study group.
Improving My Xinxing Through Tribulations
A Neighbor Steals Our Grass
A woman came to our family's field one day to harvest our grass. I bought the grass seed, but she had apparently already been to our field to harvest the grass a few times. When I saw her this time, I told my husband to tell her not to take our grass.
My husband went out and asked her: “Why do you take my grass? You should never come to cut it again!” But she pretended not to hear. My husband got angry and said, “I told you not to cut, but you're still doing it.”
He took half of the grass she had cut and gave her the remaining half to save her some face. I was there at the time. She was angry and said to me: “What type of Falun Dafa do you practice?”
I don't know why she scolded me. My throat then became very dry. I was hoarse by the next day, then lost my voice on the third day. I just thought: I didn't scold her, why did I lose my voice?
I later realized that we shouldn't have taken any of the grass she cut. I should have reasoned with her and showed my kindness. My character was not good at that time, and I failed the xinxing test. I thought that if I encounter this situation again, I must pass it. After realizing my problem, my voice went back to normal on the fifth day.
A Righteous Battle
I suddenly felt dizzy one night. Everything was spinning. Even when I laid down, I felt the room spinning. My stomach was churning, and I wanted to vomit.
I sent forth righteous thoughts to remove all of the old force elements, rotten ghosts, and evil spirits that interfered with my body in other dimensions: “Let them be eliminated!”
I felt better after sending forth righteous thoughts for half an hour, but after a while, the spinning started again. I then sent righteous thoughts for another half an hour. I thought: I am a Dafa disciple. The evil factors are unable to interfere with me. I'm not under their control, I follow Master Li's arrangement.
When I got up the next morning to do the exercises, everything was back to normal.
Reconciling with My Husband
When my husband and I had conflicts before, he always ended up comforting me after about a day. But after I started practicing Falun Dafa, the more I got angry with him, the angrier he became; he wouldn't talk to me for days.
I knew that he was helping me to eliminate my karma. I thought that a cultivator should not be like an ordinary person, so I should talk to him first: “Are you still angry at me? Don't be angry, I was wrong.”
He was taken aback, “You've never apologized to me before.”
“It was Master who taught me to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” I replied.
After this incident, my husband believed in Dafa even more. He told his friends about Dafa and advised them to do the three withdrawals. He pointed out, “My wife's personality has changed a lot!”
Every time I went to group Fa-study, he would drive me.
My husband also recites in his heart every day: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He always wears the Dafa amulet because he knows that Master saved my life. My two sons also believe Dafa is good.
