My Cultivation Experience Working in a Finance Department
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in early 2007. Prior to that, I suffered from many health problems, including stomach and gynecological ailments and arthritis.
I was only in my 30s, but I had no energy and complained of being tired all the time. Since I believed that everyone has their own path in life, I just accepted my ailments and never even bothered to see a doctor regularly.
My mother has been a Falun Dafa practitioner for many years. She often shared with us the teachings of Falun Dafa. I decided to learn the practice, too, and my illnesses gradually disappeared. I often felt an energy, like an electric current, spinning around my abdomen when I walked or rode a bike. Fellow practitioners told me the exercises were purifying my body.
I know that Master is watching over me, purifying my body, and assisting me in shedding my bad karma. For the past eight years, I have not taken any medication, and I have remained healthy.
After seeing the miraculous effect of Falun Dafa on me, whenever my daughter did not feel well, my husband would encourage her to learn the practice.
Let Things Run Their Course
I worked in the finance department at a state-owned company. The company closed our department at the end of 2008, with plans to transfer us to other departments. My husband said he could get me a nice position using his connections. Many people tried to get a good position using their connections, which to them was normal.
However, I thought I should conduct myself according to the principles of Falun Dafa and not follow in others' footsteps, so I declined my husband's suggestion and said that I would rather let things take their own course.
I was then transferred to a department with better benefits, doing the same job I had. Others thought I got the job through my connections and pulling some strings. A colleague even said so to my husband. I explained to my husband that those who practice Falun Dafa and conduct themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance will eventually obtain blessings. And I believe it was Master who made this arrangement for me.
Take Things Lightly
There were seven of us in our division, and one day we were told that there were six managerial positions available. That meant that one of us would have the same duties without management level salary. Ever since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) took over China, there have been all kinds of campaigns and movements. People are raised to “struggle” and fight with each other. So when the evaluation results came out, those who got low scores were resentful. People who previously got along well were now having conflicts.
The supervisor did not know what to do, so we talked. I thought that, as a practitioner, I should take things lightly, and thus gave up the position.
I overheard people from another department say that it was unfair for me to give up the position. I was qualified and had the education. Some even laughed at my decision, calling me a fool. I disregarded their opinions, because I knew I was being a good person. In the end, my salary remained the same.
I remembered Master Li said:
“Of course, such a person is not really foolish. We simply treat the issue of personal, vested interests with indifference, while in other areas we are very wise. In terms of conducting scientific research projects or carrying out assignments from our supervisors or other duties, we are very clear-minded and perform them very well. Only in terms of our personal benefits or our interpersonal conflicts will we care less.” (Zhuan Falun)
I would not have behaved this way if I was not a practitioner. I would have fought and competed with the others, giving them a hard time. I feel so fortunate to have become a Falun Dafa practitioner.Thank you, Master Li, for teaching us to be good people.
