(Minghui.org) I have been cultivating Falun Dafa alone since I started in 2012, due to the brutal persecution in China. In 2019, I was fortunate to join a Fa study group with help from fellow practitioners. 

I have benefited greatly by attending the group Fa study. Below are a few examples.

Veteran Practitioners Enlighten My Righteous Thoughts

Master requires Dafa practitioners to do the three things well. I study the Fa, do the exercises, and send righteous thoughts every day. 

However, I am afraid of clarifying the truth to people as I am worried about being rejected and being reported to the police. Sometimes, I’m afraid that I don’t have enough mighty virtue to clarify the truth clearly, and that I will have a negative impact on Dafa.

Huifang and Xiulian from our Fa study group often calmly hand out Falun Dafa materials to strangers. If they are rejected, they tell the people, “Falun Dafa is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good.” 

I am shocked by Xiulian’s calmness and composure. After studying the Fa and sending righteous thoughts with our Fa study group for a period of time, I have improved in clarifying the truth. 

No matter if they are my friends, co-workers or strangers, I can tell them about Dafa based on my personal level. Every time after I clarify the truth, in my heart, I summarize what I have done to better prepare for next time.

During this process, I came to understand the Fa principle,

“… I know my mission nowAnd will no longer be lost in life…”. (“Mission,” Hong Yin IV)

Improving Xinxing Together By Helping a Fellow Practitioner

Fellow practitioner Aichun’s husband, who doesn’t practice Falun Dafa, developed very serious illness symptoms and was in critical condition. I was worried about this and didn’t know how to help Aichun. 

So, fellow practitioners in our Fa study group shared on this matter.

Master said, “Everyone has his or her own fate!” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)

We had a new understanding of this after sharing, however.

“Everyone has his or her own fate” is literally asking us to let go of our affection and attachment to our relatives. However, the problem for Aichun to face is more than a sentimental attachment. 

In the meantime, this is a xinxing test for every one of us in this Fa study group. If we all think that birth, old age, sickness, and death is the state of ordinary people and just leave the decision up to the hospital, then, it is the same as following the arrangements of the old forces.

Master said,

“ … with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...”(Teachings at the Conference in Australia)

Therefore, I sent righteous thoughts for Aichun and her husband: “We won’t take the path arranged by the old forces, and we only follow Master’s arrangement.” 

However, we were still worried about the results. But, miracles happened right after Aichun looked inward and discovered the loophole in her xinxing. 

It demonstrated the power and compassion of Dafa. Aichun overcame the tribulations after looking inward, and all fellow practitioners in our Fa study group truly realized the following: 

“...looking within is a magical tool.” (Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference)

In the meantime, we understood what Master said,


Life is short,You've merely stopped over at the inn.Don’t forget your vow before descending here;If you hesitate along the path because offame, self-interest, emotion, and revenge,When will you wake up and return to your home?” (Hong Yin III)

Thank you, Master Li (Dafa’s founder)! In the meantime, I shared this miracle with predestined people. Let me read again,

“CoupletThe Source of All Fa

Zhen Shan Ren—three sacred words have boundless Fa powersFalun Dafa is good—true thoughts alter all disasters” (Hong Yin IV)

The Righteous Actions of Fellow Practitioners Motivate Me to Be More Diligent

I spent most of my time in bed in the hospital before obtaining the Fa. After I started cultivation, Master extended my life and gave me a healthy body. 

However, there are some factors left for me to cultivate slowly. For example, my hands are normal if not writing, but they shake badly as soon as I begin to write. 

I cannot hold the pen and cannot control my head either. My head swings around and is very uncomfortable.

I am very anxious when seeing fellow practitioners transcribing the Fa. Sister Song is 78 years old this year, and she also has difficulty transcribing the Fa, but her tenacity touched my heart very much. 

Whenever I wanted to give up, I recalled Sister Song’s words, “My wrist hurts really bad, but I haven’t finished transcribing the Fa yet. I must finish it.” 

Such simple words often echo in my mind, and have given me a new understanding of my hand-shaking problem.

Master said,

“Cultivation must take place through tribulations...” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)

“How can one increase gong comfortably?” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

“This Fa can only be taught to this level. It is up to your own cultivation to attain what is at higher levels. The questions raised by some people have become more and more specific. If I explain all the questions in your life, what will be left for you to cultivate? You must cultivate and become enlightened on your own. If I tell you everything, nothing will remain for you to cultivate. Fortunately, Dafa has already been made public, and you can do things according to Dafa” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)

In the process of remaking me, Master set some small tests and tribulations for me to cultivate and improve, which I understand is the process of cultivation. 

Now, I consider transcribing the Fa as another way of studying it, and that I must take seriously. I thank Master for everything, as well as every fellow practitioner in our Fa study group for their sincere sharing and giving.
