Advance Diligently in Real Cultivation and Do the Three Things Well
(Clearwisdom.net) My cultivation practice has almost always been semi-unlocked. I have personally experienced almost everything Master taught in Zhuan Falun, so I have not had any doubts about Master or the Fa. I tend to clarify the truth to everyone in my life, work, and those that I run into on the street. For fellow practitioners who do not advance diligently, I patiently try to persuade them, keeping in mind their problems and obstacles. No matter what happens to me, I bear in mind Master’s teaching that, by looking within, there is no test we cannot pass. Therefore, I believe anything that I run into or hear is related to me and possesses a reason to aid me in the improvement of my cultivation.
I was transferred to work on a freight liner. One day, during a cargo cleaning operation in which garbage was being craned out of the main cargo hold, there was a heavy load of iron filings and the handle on the garbage can broke. The can fell from the top of the main cargo hold and landed on my neck and back, knocking me down into the bilge in an instant. Everyone was stunned. Before they could react and come help me up, I said, “I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner, and I’m OK because I have Master’s protection.” I got up, moved my arms and legs around, and, indeed, nothing was broken. The main cargo hold was over ten meters deep and made of iron. If it happened to an everyday person, that individual would have been crushed, but I was completely intact. Everyone was amazed. I wholeheartedly thanked Master for removing a huge tribulation for me.
Studying the Fa more and studying the Fa well is the fundamental guarantee for doing everything a Dafa disciple is supposed to do well. No matter where I am or how busy I am, I read at least one lecture of Zhuan Falun every day. I think you can take a shower to clean your body, but to clean your mind, the only way is through studying Dafa. I've found group study most effective because when everyone is reading together, it requires everyone’s cooperation to have a smooth flow while everyone’s heart is rectified by the Fa. Under Master’s protection, I can always find local practitioners and study the Fa with them no matter where I go, thereby following the path of cultivation practice arranged by Master and negating the old forces’ arrangements trying to separate us.
Sending forth righteous thoughts is a very important element in cultivating ourselves well and saving sentient beings. I have almost never missed the four times a day of global sending forth righteous thoughts. Sometimes in special circumstances, I do it more often or extend the length of time, and the effects are very good. While working on an old ship, some crew members from the south would intentionally make trouble for us at work. Practitioners and I clarified the facts to them multiple times and copied truth-clarification materials as well as the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party on their computers, but it still didn’t help. After discussion, we decided to add an hour of sending forth righteous thoughts every night. A few days later, those crew members started to listen to our truth-clarification, and, in the end, all of them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I met a middle-aged man during a business trip and talked with him about the bizarre and unhealthy things going on in society today. He held that everything in existence was reasonable. I said, “Everything in the world has good and evil in it. Humans have a choice of what they want. Now is an opportunity for human beings to choose. I believe you want to have filial piety for your parents and treat your wife and children well and do not want to be an evil person.” He replied, “Of course.” I said, “Then please break from the evil CCP organization and choose a wonderful future for yourself.” He agreed and quit the Youth League and Young Pioneers, accepted the truth-clarification materials, and thanked me repeatedly.
This concludes some experience sharing of my cultivation practice. Please kindly point out anything improper.
