(Minghui.org) Whenever we study the Fa, we will often see Master asking us to study the Fa more. Therefore, I would like to share my feelings and amazing incidents I experienced during the pandemic, when I spent lots time studying the Fa.
Due to the epidemic, my area was locked down. Therefore, I quieted myself down to study the Fa at home. During this period of time, I finished memorizing Zhuan Falun, and reading Master’s Fa teachings at different regions, and listened to one talk of Master’s 9 Lectures in Guangzhou every day. I was immersed in the Fa and strengthened by the power of Dafa every day.
I Became Energetic
In the past, I would often not wake up for the midnight sending forth righteous thoughts. Sometimes I could not even hear the alarm while at other times, even if I woke up, I would not be clear-headed, and would even fall asleep when I sent forth righteous thoughts. Despite being disturbed by this, things just did not improve.
I used to wake up at 3 a.m. to do the exercises. But now, I adjusted the wake up time to 4 a.m. and in the evening I stayed up and studied the Fa until midnight. Then sent forth righteous thoughts before going to bed. Thus, I do not need to worry about not waking up on time for the sending of righteous thoughts. The effect of sending forth righteous thoughts improved. Thus, I am able to complete all four times of sending forth righteous thoughts every day.
Despite sleeping later and only having four hours of sleep every day, I had enough time to study the Fa. I did not feel sleepy, and was filled with energy for the entire day.
Filling My Mind with the Fa with Focused Fa Study
I also persist in memorizing the Fa without losing my concentration every day. Thus, I am able to maintain a relatively healthy cultivation state. Sometimes, I will be able to memorize two to three pages – and even occasionally four pages – of the Fa within two hours. I will also study one or half a book of Master’s Fa teachings in other regions every day. When I let the Fa into my mind while studying it, the Fa principles were also revealed to me continuously. Therefore, the more I study the Fa, the more I like to study it, and the more I am filled with energy. Every time I understand something new, I feel that I am breaking out from a shell, so it is especially wonderful.
I experienced something amazing. The energy-saving light bulb which I had bought was broke, and I placed it on top of the television cabinet. Every morning, when doing the exercises, I will always place Master’s portrait on top of the television cabinet, and offer incense to Master.
After completing one hour of the second set of exercises, I was moving the light bulb to one side. At the moment when I picked up that light bulb, it lit up and scared me. I immediately placed it back down as I thought that there had been an electric shock, and I did not want to be electrocuted. However, I realized that this initial thought was incorrect, as it was only a light bulb which was not attached to an electrical outlet. Therefore, I carefully picked up the light bulb again. The point on the light bulb which I touched flashed brightly. I still had a question mark in my heart, and I was still afraid, so I put the bulb down again.
The next morning, I was offering incense to Master when the lighter in my hand accidentally touched the bulb and the bulb lit up again. I used the lighter to touch the bulb again and the bulb lit up again too. This time, I finally understood that this is benevolent Master encouraging me!
Practicing the Exercises in a Relaxed Manner
I now wake up at 4.50 a.m. to do the exercises. In the past, I would be too lazy to get out of bed or would oversleep, but now, I will wake up when it is time for the exercises.
I used to always have trouble doing the meditation for one full hour. But now, I usually meditate for 80 to 90 minutes, and sometimes, it felt even more relaxing than meditating for an hour.
Once, my friends invited me to join them for a hike up the mountains. All of them are frequent hikers who go hiking at many places all year around, and they were worried that I could not keep up with them. However, in truth, none of them could walk faster than me. When we were climbing the steps, I did not feel much strain but some of them lagged behind me, and stopped on and off to catch their breath.
One of my friends said to me, “To think that we were worried that you would not be able to keep up with us. In the end, you had no problem at all.” I told him that I meditate and practice the exercises every day. After that, I helped him quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
More Confident When Clarifying the Truth
During the pandemic, many areas were locked down, and I was very anxious about it. I thought that the disaster has come, and there are still so many people who have yet to be saved. What should I do? I must go out to clarify the truth.
Therefore, every day, after studying the Fa in the morning, I will go out to the market and clarify the truth to people. In the past, I did not have confidence when I clarified the truth. I did not know how to do it so I took reference from the experiences of many fellow practitioners which I had read about in the Minghui Weekly.
Although not many people are leaving their homes nowadays, through studying more of Fa, I have the confidence to meet with people. Under Master’s empowerment, predestined people would often be sent to me. Under normal situations, most of these people whom I had clarified the truth to would agree to quit the CCP organizations, and every one of them was very happy about it.
One lady said that she normally did not leave her home. Today, she decided to go out, and she met me. She was very happy and agreed to quit the CCP organizations. She even thanked me for it. I told her that she should be thanking Dafa’s Master, as Master encouraged us to help others in this way.
There was another lady who held my hand after I helped her quit the CCP organization. She did not want to let go of my hand and said, “You are so kind.” She also accepted truth-clarifying materials. Seeing people awaken and be saved makes me feel very happy, too.
Since I started to study a lot of the Fa, I have entered into the best stage of cultivation so far. I gained so many new understandings, and I am also changing.
In fact, I had not been diligent in studying the Fa for some time. Not only was I not consistent in studying the Fa, I also had many human attachments, which I could not let go. Even now, I still get distracted by my mobile phone at times. Although I have uninstalled wechat and QQ, just like what the practitioners have said in the Minghui Weekly, when I feel tired from studying the Fa, I will use that as an excuse to scroll through my mobile phone. In fact, there are no benefits from this. Not only did it waste my time, sometimes just one look would end up costing me one to two hours. Furthermore, all the everyday people’s things would get into my mind and cause disturbance when I studied the Fa and practiced the exercises.
“Did you know that in order to save you the Buddha once begged for food among everyday people? Today, I once again make the door wide open, and teach this Dafa to save you. I have never felt bitter for the numerous hardships I have suffered. Then what do you have that still can’t be abandoned? Can you bring to heaven the things deep down inside that you cannot let go of?” (“True Cultivation,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
I hope that my sharing can be of some help to practitioners who struggle with being diligent in cultivation, like me.
“Don’t let up in studying the Fa; amidst it transformation happens...”(“Diligence and Righteous Enlightenment,” Hong Yin II)
As long as you study the Fa, you are changing!
If there is anything that is not in line with the Fa in my sharing, please kindly let me know.
