From Helping Falun Dafa Practitioners to Becoming One
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shandong Province and I have been practicing Falun Dafa for two years. I heard of Falun Dafa for the first time in 1999 when the crackdown against Falun Dafa began. I said some words of sympathy for practitioners at the time.
I was lucky enough to meet a practitioner in 2005. She told me in detail how she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and explained that the Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged. I suddenly enlightened that Master Li Hongzhi was here to save people! I was thoroughly convinced of it.
I started to collaborate with this practitioner to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. I helped make and distribute informational materials. I tried to do as much as I could.
I met more practitioners in recent years and I started to drive them to remote places to clarify the truth.
An elderly practitioner advised me more than once to practice Falun Dafa. I began to practice at the end of 2018, thanks to Master’s merciful and painstaking salvation. I deeply understood that practitioners’ mission is to clarify the truth and save people.
During the first half of the year after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I was disturbed by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) staff three times for spreading the facts about Falun Dafa to people. I was once taken to a police station by an officer. I ran away when they were not paying attention.
On the second occasion, four practitioners, including me, were arrested. We sent righteous thoughts and did not cooperate with the police. We explained the facts about Falun Dafa to the officers, and at the same time in our hearts asked Master for help. The officers were exhausted and let us go home in the evening.
The third time, a village official spotted me distributing informational materials in a village. He reported me to the police and closely watched me to prevent me from running away. Another practitioner was distributing materials in the west alley. So I walked toward the east to protect her.
The village official drove after me, yelled at me and demanded that I get into his car. I told him to turn his car around, then I would get in the car. He turned around. A villager next to him said, “She wants to run!” I glanced at the villager and sent forth righteous thoughts to silence the villager.
I heard the village official calling the police from his car, “Why aren’t you coming quickly?!” While he was turning the car, I quickly ran over to my car (he didn’t know that my car was parked nearby), started the car and drove away.
He chased me. I panicked and was scared. I sent righteous thoughts in a panic and wished his tire would blow. I remembered that sending righteous thoughts while in a panic doesn't work, so my mind immediately stabilized. I thought maybe it was also an unwholesome thought to want to blow up his tires. I held the steering wheel in one hand, and held up my other hand in front of my chest to send forth righteous thoughts, “Master please help me. He can’t be allowed to catch up with your disciple.” I recited the formula for sending forth righteous thoughts.
He chased me for 1 or 2 miles. He had to slow down because people were crossing the road. I glanced in my rearview mirror and felt a cloud of dust flying behind me. I knew Master had helped me. Master said,
“It doesn’t matter what so-called Buddha, what Dao, what Deity, or what demon it is—they can’t sway me.” (The Sixth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
I felt a little scared after this third incident. But I also learned to pay attention to my safety. I still distribute informational materials about Falun Dafa every day with the guidance and cooperation of veteran practitioners. I have experienced bitterness as well as sweetness while clarifying the truth. Some people have commented that we have nothing else to do. Some have torn up the brochures that we passed to them. But the majority of people thank us. Saving people is our mission. I will work hard to do three things well and live up to Master's mercy and salvation.
My family and friends have witnessed how much I have changed after practicing Falun Dafa for two years. I have not needed to take a pill since I started practicing Falun Dafa. I have become stronger and can help my family with many household chores. My friends have said that my back has become straight and my temper is no longer that irritable. They all say that I have changed a lot.
Thank you, Master, again for your salvation!
