Good Fa Study Makes Everything Proceed Smoothly
(Minghui.org) I have never met Master in person, nor do I see anything with my celestial eye. However, when I study the Fa with a calm heart, it feels like Master is lecturing to me in person. Throughout my ten years of cultivation, solid Fa study has given me wisdom, and it has made me a good team player and quick learner in Dafa projects.
While in a brainwashing center, there was a point when I was near mental collapse. But at that time, I remembered some of Master's teachings and all of my fears left me. I became calm.
“...just by staying unmoved you would be able to handle all situations ...” (Fa Teaching Given at the 2014 San Francisco Fa Conference),
“I am rooted in the universe. If anyone can harm you, he or she would be able to harm me. Put simply, that person would be able to harm this universe.” (“Lecture One” from Zhuan Falun)
These words immediately reminded me of who I am, and how magnificent Master is! I realized that having fear meant I did not believe Master 100 percent. Lack of belief is caused by lack of Fa study. Lack of Fa study allowed my attachments to take over, and that was why I was arrested and taken to the brainwashing center.
To deny the arrangement of the old forces, I told myself, “I am a Dafa disciple during the Fa rectification, and I am on a divine path.” Although I had no fear, I was still puzzled what to do next. Fortunately I memorized lots of Master's teachings.
“Calmly reflect on the attachments you haveRemove your human thoughtsand evil will naturally die out”(“Don't be Sad” from Hong Yin Volume II),
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond” from Hong Yin Volume II),
“No matter what the situation, do not cooperate with the evil’s demands, orders, or what it instigates. If everyone does this the environment won’t be this way.” (“Dafa Disciples’ Righteous Thoughts are Powerful” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
From these words, I learned that I should simply refuse to cooperate with the officials in the brainwashing center.
So I refused to cooperate. And when I did, they completely stopped brainwashing me. One of the ones in charge told other practitioners, “He has no loopholes. Nothing can change him.” Eventually they released me unconditionally. Because I followed Master's teachings and did the right thing, the old forces no longer had any reason to persecute me.
Seamless Team Work Exposes Local Persecution
A coordinator asked me to help compile articles to expose local persecution cases. At the beginning, I thought all I needed do was type, so I accepted the job. But it turned out that I need to write articles and compile all the documentation.
Writing has always been difficult for me. However, through Fa study I realized that it may be the cultivation path arranged by Master since there are many persecution cases in our area.
To compile each documentation file, I had to learn many approaches and to accept a great deal of feedback from other practitioners. It was indeed a process of xinxing improvement.
After I prepared the file in Word format, it had to be converted into a PDF. However, I could not figure how to do it no matter how many times I tried. Not knowing what to do, I clicked on a random file on my computer. It happened to be instructions on how to convert a Word document into a PDF, as if Master brought it right before my eyes.
After the first version of the documentation file was created, practitioners gave me much feedback. At first, I had no problem taking their advice and making changes one by one.
However, when more and more requests were made, I became impatient. I soon realized that it was time for me to improve my xinxing, so I continued to modify the reports according to their feedback. After more than ten drafts, the documentation file satisfied everyone, and we felt confident enough to distribute it.
We created specific truth-clarification packages for the police department, post offices, and banks. The practitioners worked seamlessly as a team. Some collected names and addresses. Some got together to send forth righteous thoughts for this project. Some distributed the packages in person. Some mailed the packages. The project worked very well.
Fa Study Helped Me Become a Quick Learner
Before Minghui published templates for writing criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin, none of us knew how to set up this kind of legal document. Although I am not a lawyer, my major area of study is related to law, so I searched the Internet and quickly figured out the format for writing criminal complaints. After Minghui published the official templates, I used my newly-gained knowledge to teach other practitioners how to use it.
