(Minghui.org) Greetings, Benevolent Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

Before I began practicing Falun Dafa in late 2019, I was chronically ill. Twenty years ago a hospital examination showed that I had brain atrophy, and the doctor prescribed a lot of medication. My consuming excessive amounts of medications caused me to have kidney deficiency, impaired vision, heart disease, osteoporosis, and cirrhosis. I consulted several hospitals but little could be done about my diseases.

These diseases tormented me for over two decades, and by the end of 2019 my body completely collapsed. My poor health not only made me suffer a fate worse than death, but my family also suffered as they were constantly worried about me. 

When my situation was most desperate I, fortunately, obtained Dafa. With Master Li’s (Dafa’s founder) compassionate blessing, I was freed from endless suffering. Master purified my body and changed my life’s path so that I could truly embark on the path of cultivation.

My path of cultivation was very difficult because I couldn’t comprehend the Dafa books. Twenty years of brain atrophy turned me from a quiet girl to an old, ill person who often exhibited abnormal behavior and had difficulty remembering anything. For years, the other villagers called me “big dummy.” I really became stupid and my memory was very bad. As soon as I stepped out of the village, I would forget the way home. 

I would like to share a little of my insight on doing the three things with you. 

My Experiences Distributing Truth Clarification Materials

Master said, 

“Practicing cultivation is a being’s process of ascension, starting step by step from being a good person, to gradually becoming a better person—a noble-minded being who transcends everyday people—to even higher. Therefore, in the face of a lack of understanding from the world’s people, and even pressure from governments, you should not use everyday people’s methods to defy them. You should clarify the truth with a compassionate heart. “ (“To Vietnamese Students”) 

Shortly after I began practicing Falun Dafa I joined other practitioners and helped distribute truth-clarification materials on the street. I had the thought: if I’m determined to do it, I can definitely do it. So I went to all the nearby train stations, shopping centers, hospitals, kiosks, etc. to distribute truth-clarification materials. Every time I went out, I almost always encountered police officers who wanted to take my materials away and wouldn’t let me hand them out in that area. Every time this happened, I kept my righteous thoughts.

I remembered something Master said, 

“All of you are already aware of the principle of mutual-generation and mutual-inhibition. If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist. This is not to be self-imposed, but is achieved by truly and calmly letting go of it.” (“Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s),”  Essentials for Further Advancement II)

Master’s Fa helped to calm my mind, be free from distractions, and eliminate fear. In this way, I repeatedly avoided interference from the police. One evening, when I walked out of a practitioner’s home, it was already past 6:00 p.m. Before I left, that practitioner handed me over a hundred sheets of truth-clarification materials. A strong force was motivating me to go out and distribute them. I didn’t think twice and headed to the bus station.

By the time I got on the bus, it was already 7:00 p.m. This was the first time I went out alone. I had never been on a bus before, and I didn’t know where it was going. It was already dark. I could feel that Master was encouraging me, and showing me the way. I was not afraid of anything.

I rode all the way to the final terminal. After I got off the bus, I handed the materials out one by one to the people crossing the road. The police soon came and threatened to arrest me and detain me at the Public Security Bureau. I felt very calm and unafraid. There wasn’t even a hint of fear. Another thought arose in my mind: “I have even let go of life and death; why should I be afraid of your threats?”

One policeman asked me a lot of questions, and I answered them one by one. I also told him the truth about Dafa. He asked, “Are you distributing reactionary things?” I replied, “I’m not distributing reactionary things, I’m distributing the truth and saving people. I love the motherland and all our people very much.” When he heard this, he gave me back the materials and let me go. This was one of my experiences of going out to clarify the truth.

My Amazing Experiences While Participating in the RTC Project

I heard a coordinator say that in order to do well in the RTC project, in addition to reading all of Master’s lectures, we should also read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. A fellow practitioner gave me a copy. I took the book and flipped through it, but I found that the words were too small and the lines were a mass of black ink, so how could I read them? I asked Master for help.

On my way home, I maintained righteous thoughts. Unexpectedly a miracle happened when I got home. Just after I arrived home, I went back to my room and opened the book. The lines which were a black mass just moments ago became very clear! One by one, the words all showed up in front of my eyes, clear as day. I was unaware of the tears flowing down my face, and I put my hands together in heshi to show gratitude to Master. A month later, I finished reading the book.

When I joined the RTC platform, the coordinator assigned me to the group that sends forth righteous thoughts. Every day I sent forth righteous thoughts together with other fellow practitioners. When I sent forth righteous thoughts, I saw scenes in other dimensions with my celestial eye. Every time I held One Palm Erect, I could see that I had entered another dimension. It was very mysterious and very scary at the same time. There were many dark minions and rotten demons calling out. It really was a battle between good and evil, and the divine bodies of fellow practitioners used the power of righteous thoughts to eliminate many rotten demons. The further I looked, the more dark minions appeared.

In that dimension, there were dark minions, rotten demons, and other evil spirits everywhere. They were all destroying the phone lines and directly hindering us from saving people. Every time I saw that sight, I focused my righteous thoughts on eliminating them. Sometimes I thought I had eliminated them, but to my surprise, the next time I sent positive thoughts, they would emerge in large numbers again. Sometimes my righteous thoughts were insufficient and I did a poor job. 

At those moments, one of Master’s teachings came to mind, 

“Let me tell you, all those who remain and that can persecute Dafa and Dafa disciples are due to our students themselves. Students who haven't taken sending forth righteous thoughts seriously: the evil in the dimensions that you are supposed to shoulder and be responsible for has not been eliminated. That's the cause. So you must take sending forth righteous thoughts seriously. No matter whether you think you have the ability or not, you should do it.” (“Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. II)

Every time I thought about what Master said, tears flowed down my face. When I looked inward, I found that I was still very much driven by “sentimentality.” This sentimentality is the feeling I have for my family. When the old forces saw this, could they let me go? They took advantage of this opportunity to exploit my loophole. After I discovered this problem, I asked for Master’s help and I corrected myself. This way my state of mind would be much better when I sent forth righteous thoughts.

Master said, 

“The closer it gets to the end, the more you cannot let up; the closer it gets to the end, the better you must study the Fa; the closer it gets to the end, the stronger your righteous thoughts must be.” (“To the Canada Fa Conference,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress III)

Participating in the RTC Social Media Truth-telling Program

The coordinator soon suggested I participate in the social media truth-telling program. The program requires that people in mainland China befriend through social media, and then we can clarify the truth to them. It also requires that the participants know how to use smartphones. I had never used a smartphone before, and I didn’t know how to send text messages; I only knew how to make phone calls on old-fashioned phones. This made me a little hesitant, not knowing if I could participate. But then I thought to myself: I will definitely be able to participate and I will do well. As long as we have the determination to save people, everything will be arranged by Master.

Later, with the enthusiastic help of other local practitioners, I finally learned how to “control” my smartphone. It was a real challenge for me, but as a practitioner, I knew nothing could stop us from saving people. It was also a good opportunity for me to improve. Not only did I learn to use my phone, I still did very well in the program.

In less than a month, the number of friends on my account went from zero to over a thousand, and even the general coordinator of the program couldn’t believe that I had done such a good job. Every time I sent invitations to people, I would send righteous thoughts to clear out all of the evil elements in my field that were preventing me from saving them.

I remember one fellow practitioner used a cell phone assigned to him by the program, and after using it for less than a day, the phone went out of order. No matter how much he tried, it wouldn’t respond. He came to me and told me about it. I picked up the phone, and when I looked at it, I could see many rotten spirits inside the phone. I immediately put my palms up and sent righteous thoughts to clear them. He later took the phone to a cell phone service store and asked someone to look at it. As soon as the repairman got the phone, he pressed the button on and the phone started up normally, without any problems.

My personal cultivation in fact, leaves a lot to be desired. Other than adding friends, I don't know how to do any of the steps. I always say I am very busy and that I have joined too many projects, finding excuses for myself. In fact, behind them is hidden my own attachment. I think Dafa disciples should do their best in everything they do, so that they can be called, “Dafa Disciples of the Fa-rectification Period.” (Teachings From a Tour of North America)

Participating in the Broadcast Project
The difficulties I encountered in learning to use my smartphone ultimately weren’t much. When I joined the broadcast project, the coordinator also asked us to use a laptop, which was another big test for me. I had never touched a computer before. Now I had to control this tiny mouse and type on the keyboard, which was so hard that I almost wept. But I thought that to transmit audio was to directly transmit the truth to all sentient beings, and persuade CCP members to quit, which had a direct effect on people. Therefore, I asked Master to strengthen me. 

It was amazing! After a short while, my hand felt especially flexible, as if someone were next to me holding my hand and teaching me. I was able to control the mouse. There were many steps to take—from the moment I started the computer to the moment I went to the page where the broadcast was played. I formally joined the broadcast project not expecting that I would learn it all in two or three days, 

When I joined this project, I also suffered a lot of interference, mainly because I hadn’t let go of my attachment of emotion towards my family. I had to go to a fellow practitioner’s house to learn computer skills, so I didn’t do a lot of housework. I felt bad and thought I neglected my daughter and grandchildren. Seeing that I had to make so many trips every day, the other practitioner gave me the computer to take home to work on myself, so that I didn’t have to go to his place every day.

When my daughter saw me using the mouse at the computer, she was amazed. She rushed out and called her father to come. She said, “Dad! Look! Mom can use the computer now!” My husband was also stunned and didn’t say anything. The next day, he said, “Return the computer. You go out every day to study the Fa and do the exercises and play with your cell phone (I was actually working on the project on my cell phone), and now that you have this thing, how will you have time to look after your grandchildren. Who will take care of the store?” He went on and on. When he stopped, I quietly said, “Dear, what I’m doing is saving lives! I will finish the things at home, and I will help with the grandchildren. Just let me do this thing, okay?” When my husband heard me say that, he left without saying a word. I knew his personality, and not saying anything means that he had agreed.

While on the phone, I was often interfered with by evil elements. They blocked the line so that calls would not go through and interfered with sentient beings listening to the truth. Sometimes the interference was very strong. When I encountered this interference, I strengthened my righteous thoughts and looked inward to see if I had any attachments that caused the old forces to exploit the situation. After I did that, I was able to get through again.

Sometimes someone answered the phone, but I couldn’t hear what he was saying. But I knew he was listening to the truth very earnestly. Others listened to two or three recordings in a row, and some listened for several minutes without hanging up the phone. After understanding the truth some spoke with me over the phone, saying loudly, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” As I listened, I cried with joy. I was very happy for these people who had been saved.

Every one of us who participates in the RTC is very good at speaking the truth, which is very rare. We all move forward together no matter what difficulties we encounter. We all have the shared desire to save as many people as possible.

At one point the interference was so severe that the whole project almost came to a halt. Our phone calls were blocked and interrupted as soon as they were made. I realized that it was the old forces’ interference. Master showed us, practitioners, how to come out of the predicament and establish our virtue. We can’t just tie our hands and do nothing because of interference. Isn’t it true that the more complicated the environment, the higher you can cultivate? 

It is not so easy to save a person, but it requires the cooperation of Dafa disciples as a whole. In this process, everyone has put in a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. At this moment, we Dafa disciples should take a step forward hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder, deny all the schemes of the old forces, firmly believe in Dafa, firmly believe in Master, do the three things, help Master rectify the Fa, and return home successfully.

From the time I learned the Fa until now, my heart has been filled with happiness, and Master has given me a second life, allowing me to cultivate myself in the Dafa environment. When I am with my fellow practitioners, I feel a warm and compassionate energy field, so I just want to always be in the Fa and by Master’s side, and Master will protect me, and the golden light of Dafa will always shine on every one of us practitioners.

Thank you, Master! Thank you all!
