Falun Dafa practitioners in Taoyuan, Hsinchu, and Miaoli wish Master Li a happy Chinese New Year
Facing huge changes in the human world, they reminded other practitioners to remember Master’s teachings. They encouraged each other to practice diligently, treasure the opportunity to cultivate, and clarify the truth well to save more people.
Becoming Healthy after Practicing Falun Dafa
Su-chen Huang is a new practitioner. Before she began practicing, she had pain in her joints, vertebrae, shoulders, and knees. After she sprained her ankle when she was a child, her knee was in constant pain. This caused her to have trouble walking and her knees became deformed. Her frozen shoulder led to a stiff neck that needed to be adjusted every six months.
This situation went on for years. All of her symptoms disappeared after she began practicing and she is now healthy and very grateful to Falun Dafa.
Huang started practicing Falun Dafa in August 2019. She always wondered: What is Falun Dafa? She searched online and learned that Falun Dafa is a spiritual practice.
Because of her health issues she focused on the exercises. She read Zhuan Falun in August 2019 and afterwards learned the exercises. She was amazed to feel Falun rotating. She began participating in the morning exercises on August 16, 2019.
Relationship with Her Son Becomes Harmonious
Huang's xinxing improved after she began practicing. She was always worried about the alarming changes in her teenage son. Academically, he always ranked among the highest since childhood and was admitted to one of the best high schools.
After entering high school, he began skipping classes. His academics kept spiraling down until he was at the bottom of his class. Huang could not accept this but did not know what to do.
As she kept studying the Fa, she enlightened and realized that difficult situations become positive only if the human heart improves. She kept reminding herself of this when problems surfaced. Also, a child's situation is a reflection of his parent's xinxing. She noticed that she became open-minded after she began practicing and viewed problems as cultivation opportunities.
Her son was a junior in high school and prepared to take the college entrance exam when Huang started practicing Falun Dafa. When Huang changed her mentality, the intense conflict between mother and son was gone. Their relationship improved. She was amazed when her son was admitted to a good college.
Because she's benefited so much from practicing Falun Dafa, Huang wished to clarify the truth and let others know about Dafa. She asked fellow practitioners for suggestions and started mailing letters with truth-clarification information.
Two months later, the CCP virus (coronavirus) triggered a worldwide pandemic. She paid attention to the articles on Minghui.org. She understood that the pandemic was serious and practitioners need to focus on raising awareness to save more people.
Huang began making phone calls, started an online chat and began advising Chinese people to quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) organizations.
She enlightened that the other party would be touched only if she truly wishes to save them. She set aside her mentality of fear, suspicion and self-doubt. She learned by listening to fellow practitioners as they made phone calls.
She noted that when she had a pure mind, the other party listens even though she stumbled in the beginning. Another practitioner encouraged her, “People are touched by your pure mind.” Huang felt encouraged and persisted in phoning China.
One man agreed to quit his membership in the CCP organizations but said, “I am not a good person.” Huang encouraged him, “China is waiting for a new world. You can be part of it.”
The man said firmly, “Okay. Today is a new beginning for me!” Huang was happy and touched by his sincere wish to be saved.
Huang said she appreciated Master for the opportunity to cultivate. She promises to study the Fa and move forward diligently.
Understanding the Meaning of Life
Chun-hui Chiang started practicing Falun Dafa after attending a nine-day free workshop in 2003. She recovered from cancer soon after she began practicing.
Before she began practicing, Chun-hui underwent chemotherapy and electrotherapy. The doctor said that her internal organs might be injured and it was impossible for her to get pregnant. She was surprised when she conceived and gave birth to a healthy little boy seven years after she began practicing Falun Dafa.
Through Master's teachings, she understood the meaning of life. She began to take fame and personal interest lightly and was no longer disturbed during conflicts.
Chun-hui said she was always interested in spirituality but did not understand the meaning of life. Because the human world is filled with emotion, even religions no longer offer people comfort. Eliminating her attachment to emotion was her biggest enlightenment and change.
Truly Looking Within and Eliminating Attachments
When her mentality changed, her relationship with her son improved. The school mistakenly thought her son was a special needs student. Chun-hui knows one’s fate cannot be changed at will. Thus, she deals with her son and his education differently from others.
She takes people's expectations lightly, such as her son's physical development and academics. Instead, she patiently teaches him and encourages him to walk his own path.
Chun-hui also took fame and personal interest lightly. She grew up in a patriarchal family. Her mother told her, “Our property will be given to your brother. You won’t get anything.”
Before she began practicing she felt this was unfair. From studying the Fa, she understood everything is arranged. She realized that for practitioners, you will not lose what is yours and you don’t compete to get what is not yours. When she eliminated her feelings of being treated unfairly her resentment was gone.
Letting People Know The Truth
Chun-hui said the public relies on social media and news media for information, but the news may not be entirely truthful. Since many kind-hearted people don't have access to the truth, they may be misled.
She wants people to have access to the truth, so she posts truthful news on social media. She hopes people will learn the facts and have a better future. Unlike other media, her goal in posting news is not about how many views her posts receive.
She plans to be more diligent in the new year and do the three things with a purer mindset.
From Low Self-Esteem to Positive Outlook
Mei-ling Hsu started practicing Falun Dafa in 2005. She grew up in a poor family. Her father's business failed and her mother died when she was young. Her family had to move frequently. She became shy and developed low self-esteem.
After practicing Falun Dafa, her outlook on life changed her and she began to think positively. She was able to express her thoughts.
When she learned about the CCP’s organ harvesting from living Falun Dafa practitioners, she felt so sad that she wept and could not eat. Encouraged by her family members, she began raising awareness and traveled to Hong Kong and Hawaii. Soon she could do face to face truth-clarification.
Mei-ling said the compassion she felt to save people helped her overcome her shyness and low self-esteem and talk to people in person.
Faced with the provocation and interference from the pro-CCP groups in Hong Kong, she was not affected. She also met tourists from China who knew the facts and admired Falun Dafa practitioners’ selfless efforts.
She said she would cultivate well, eliminate her human mentality, form one body with fellow practitioners, and validate Dafa in the new year. She wished to share her experiences with other practitioners and encourage those who stopped practicing or those in long-term tribulations to get back on track and cultivate.
