Master is Always with Us
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1994 for the sole purpose of wanting to be healthy. I had no idea what cultivation was. Some of my friends told me that Falun Dafa had health benefits, so I started doing the exercises with them. Without realizing it, I recovered from all my ailments.
I have witnessed the power of Dafa over and over again.
My eldest daughter took me home on her electric bike one summer evening in 2001. We hit a motorcycle that was being repaired on the side of the road and both of us ended up underneath the bike.
After getting up, we examined ourselves and found that my daughter had a really big lump on her head, my right foot and hand were covered in broken glass, and the blood was sticking to my thin summer clothes.
When my mind became clear, my first thought was to send righteous thoughts.
The young man who was repairing his motorcycle called the police. When they arrived, they wanted to take us to the hospital.
Seeing that my daughter was okay, I said, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and am protected by my Master.” However, the officer insisted.
The doctor at the hospital wanted to take X-ray and CT scans, but I assured him that I would be fine. He removed the fragments of glass that were sticking to me and cleaned us up. After thanking him and the other medical staff, my daughter and I went home.
I woke up the next morning to find my right foot was so swollen that I could barely walk. I called my employer to request a day off and explained why. When my colleagues came to visit me at home and saw my injuries, they urged me to go to the hospital.
Instead I chose to study the Fa teachings and do the Falun Dafa exercises at home. The swelling disappeared on the third day.
When I returned to work on Monday, my colleagues were shocked. I smiled and said, “I didn't take any medicine or go to the hospital. Look at my foot. The swelling is gone. The office director replied, “Your master is so great, caring for his disciples even thousands of miles away.”
One winter evening in 2003, parents were waiting outside the school to pick up their children. A woman from my community was groaning in pain as she leaned on her motorcycle.
When I asked if she was okay, she said that she had gallstones and needed surgery. But she was putting it off because her husband could not care for himself.
I gave her some examples of people being blessed for truly believing in Falun Dafa despite the defamation and persecution by the CCP. I asked her to recite “Falun Dafa is good” in her heart.
She started to recite the words quietly. Then she stood up and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
I saw her again two days later. “How are your gallstones?” I asked.
“They're gone!” she exclaimed. “When I recited 'Falun Dafa is good' out loud that night, they were gone by the time I stopped.”
She thanked me, but I replied, “Don't thank me. You should thank the Master of Falun Dafa. It is Master who saved you because you truly believe 'Falun Dafa is good.'”
When I was advising people to quit the CCP, she always helped me if she was around. She later started her own business, which was very successful. I believe she received blessings from Dafa because she understood the truth.
Not Following CCP Directives
I used to be constantly ill and bad-tempered, but after I started practicing Falun Dafa, I became healthy and hardworking. I no longer fought for fame and gain. My managers and colleagues at work witnessed this.
I was illegally detained for more than 50 days in 2000 for handing out Falun Dafa information. I was arrested again in 2004 and taken to the provincial brainwashing center for a month. My managers at work knew the truth about Falun Dafa and never gave me a hard time.
A new leader took over my work unit in 2006. He knew that I practiced Dafa and often received text messages and truth-clarification materials from other practitioners. He sometimes showed me the messages on his phone.
I went out of town to clarify the truth about Dafa in 2009 and was reported to the authorities and detained away from my hometown. I held only one thought: "Master, I will be strong and never compromise with the evil!" I went on a hunger strike for a week. The guards feared that I would die in the detention center, so they released me on bail, pending trial.
A few days after returning home, I went back to work. Our employer issued a document saying that I was not allowed to talk to anyone about Dafa. If anyone reported me for it, 500 yuan would be deducted from my salary each time. The document also said that there would be a mandatory 600-yuan deduction from my salary each month. If there were no reports against me by the end of the year, they would return that portion of my salary to me.
My brother-in-law, who is a police officer, came to my home and job several times to ask me to write a guarantee statement to stop practicing Falun Dafa.
I also had to report to the municipal police department every week. My brother-in-law said that if I wrote a “guarantee statement,” he would ask them to stop summoning me.
One afternoon, when I was in the lobby at work, he came again, asking me to write a statement. Three of my deputy directors and many other employees were there at the time.
“Why do I need to write a statement?” I asked. “The police tried to force me to write one, and my family tried to force me to write one. Did I kill someone, set a fire, or steal something? I practice Falun Dafa and have been trying to be a good person by following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Do you want me to stop being a good person? Why don't you go reason with the government and police who persecute me for being a good person? Tell them it's wrong to persecute good people! Are you doing a good thing or a bad thing?”
There was silence in the lobby as everyone looked at each other. My brother-in-law left.
Money was deducted from my salary at the end of 2009. A director, deputy director, and two others came to talk to me while the office manager took notes. I started sending righteous thoughts and asked Master to help me disintegrate the old forces’ factors in other dimensions that were controlling them.
The director angrily told me that when they did an inspection, leaders from two work units reported me for promoting Falun Dafa. “You’ve damaged the reputation of our concern. We’re going to make the necessary deductions from your salary.”
I replied, “You said that I damaged the company's reputation. But I have been a good person and work hard. I have done what was asked of me and helped others without complaint. I have made the work and others my first priority. If doing this is not good enough and does not benefit the company, then let me take a leave of absence and look for another job.
“Taking money from me is not a big deal, but when you know that I'm a good person, yet you help the government persecute me, it will only harm you. Please think seriously about this.”
The director said that he would not accept my leave request, and the deduction from my salary was put on hold. The director even asked me to tell Dafa practitioners to stop writing and calling him because when he turned on his cell phone, all the calls were from practitioners.
I continued to tell the management and my colleagues about Falun Dafa, and my salary was never reduced.
During the following years, the leaders of my company went to Taiwan and several European countries on business visits. They saw Dafa practitioners around the world.
The director even protected me from attempts by the local Political and Legal Affairs Committee and the 610 Office to persecute me.
