(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2009. Even though I’ve read Zhuan Falun every day, I always experienced interference and felt there was a barrier between me and the Fa. I knew there was something I needed to break through.
I stayed mostly at home for a few months in 2020 due to the pandemic. That May I decided to memorize the Fa. I felt it would eliminate this interference. I planned to work on one or two paragraphs in Zhuan Falun every morning, and to spend the afternoon studying a lecture from the book and Master’s teachings given in other places. I went out to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa in the evenings.
I read and memorized silently at the beginning, and then read aloud later. My mouth was dry after an hour of reading and reciting, but I felt great. Sometimes I felt energy flow in my body, which was very comforting. After persisting for three months, I could see the positive changes in my life.
I live on the first floor of an old building. Huge trees behind the building blocked the sunlight. My apartment used to be so dark that I had to turn on the lights during the day. A water pipe in my bathroom occasionally leaked. It was repaired multiple times, but couldn’t be fixed. I realized there must be some loopholes in my cultivation, and I kept looking within. Nothing that happens to a cultivator is accidental. During the process of my memorizing the Fa, the management of our residential compound trimmed the trees behind our building, which brightened my apartment as well as my mind. A repairman was finally able to fix my pipe and it stopped leaking.
I also saw improvements at my job. As a vocal music teacher, I had reached a bottleneck in my teaching years ago. I could find problems with my students’ singing, but I couldn’t find an effective way to solve them, despite my continuous efforts. I decided to put it aside and memorize the Fa.
One day, I felt enlightened during my teaching, as if my mind had been unblocked. I was able to solve problems which bothered me for years! I gave my student great guidance on how to sing her lyrics with a clear, mellow and full voice, how to breathe properly, and how to articulate the nuances as she sang. My teaching methods became richer and more accurate. My students sounded better too.
Both my student and I felt we have now reached a new level. We didn’t notice that two hours flew by. She gained greater confidence with her singing and was excited about her progress.
I gained a new understanding of singing, as well as a clear train of thoughts about teaching. I know that Master used this to encourage me. I’m determined to continue memorizing the Fa, and never slack off.
