(Minghui.org) I once had a dream about cleaning a table with a washcloth. While cleaning in between the nooks and crannies of the table, I wiped out a lot of rotten, foul-smelling meat that seemed to have been there for a long time. I looked inwards and realized that Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, was reminding me not to accomplish things on the surface but to cultivate by looking at my own shortcomings. In addition, there isn’t much time left during the Fa-rectification period and I need to eliminate all my negative substances.
It has also been hard for me to wake up every morning to go to the group practice site and I’d always arrive late. I’d also get drowsy while I practiced the sitting meditation. Thus, I started to only do the first four exercises at the practice site and would do the sitting meditation at home.
Due to the pandemic, we did the exercises at home from May to July 2021. When everything reopened, we began practicing at the park again. Yuan, another practitioner responsible for starting the exercise music and bringing the banners to the group practice site for a very long time, asked if I’d take over his job. I wanted to say no and told him that it’d be hard for me to wake up so early! Yuan said, “Isn’t that exactly what you have to cultivate away?” I was suddenly awakened to that fact that Master used Yuan’s words to give me a stick warning.
“Cultivation is the process that enables a human being to ascend to Heaven and become divine, so how could it not be hard? The Buddhist religion used to talk about “stick wake-ups,” so let me give my version of a stick wake-up to those who don’t measure up and have put themselves on the brink of danger.” (“My Version of a “Stick Wake-Up,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress III)
I felt very remorseful. Master has arranged the best for us all and I cannot reject His arrangements.
I woke up as soon as my alarm went off in the morning on the first day of the group practice after the pandemic. I did not dare to slack off and hurried to the park as soon as I could to hang up banners. Since then, I’ve never been late.
With Master’s compassionate arrangements, I was able to do all five Falun Dafa exercises at once. I was scared of mosquito bites in the past and no matter how hot the weather got, I had to wear a thin jacket and gloves. However, this time, I only wore short sleeves and felt many small Falun around my body and hands. The Falun bounced off my body and it was a very wonderful feeling. A practitioner even told me that there were a lot of mosquitoes around while we practiced. Yuan said that because I agreed to hang banners and play the exercise music. With Master’s strengthening, I meditated very well. I knew that this was Master’s way of encouraging me.
Another practitioner and I both did the second exercise, Falun Standing Stance, for an hour at the practice site. Therefore, there would be two different tracks of exercise music playing at the same time; one for 30 minutes while the other was for an hour. The other practitioner and I began to unconditionally cooperate with the others and did the second exercise for 30 minutes. I would then do the second exercise in the afternoon for an hour by myself at home.
I knew that Master has intricately arranged everything for me to quickly improve. If I still refused to enlighten and did not relinquish my ego and selfishness by not acting from the perspective of being responsible to Dafa and thinking of other practitioners, my xinxing and gong would not improve. Master has used other practitioners’ mouths to awaken and enlighten me. Thank you, Master, for compassionately watching over me and giving me an opportunity to upgrade myself.
Cultivation Experiences While Calling China to Clarify the Truth
One time, I clarified the truth to a senior Chinese Communist Party (CCP) official from the city of Yantai for more than four minutes. I wished that both he and his family would stay well and safe during the pandemic. I told him the best protection during the pandemic was to remember that, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He expressed his gratitude towards me.
I told him a story about how when a village in Wuhan was infected with the CCP virus (Covid-19), a village head called for everyone in the village to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” multiple times. Everyone who was infected with the CCP virus regained their health. The village head even took the lead and had everyone quit the CCP and its youth organizations to stay safe.
I continued, “Do you know why should we quit the CCP and its youth organizations? This is because Chinese people have been living under the CCP’s regime for 70 years and whenever a movement is instigated by the CCP, innocent people lost their lives. And Falun Dafa practitioners are being persecuted and have had their organs forcefully harvested for the past 22 years. Heaven can’t tolerate this. You’ve made a deadly vow to give your life to the communist regime! You need to take that deadly vow back by quitting the CCP and its youth organizations. What do you think? Don’t be their scapegoat. You are a Party member, aren’t you?” He replied, “Yes.” He agreed to use his real name to quit the CCP and its youth organizations. I also explained to him how to use DynaWeb, a web-based portal that allows users to safely break through the CCP’s Internet firewall, so he could receive his certificate for quitting the Party.
I clarified the truth to someone working in the police force in Guangdong Province for 40 minutes. He was kind and agreed with everything I said. I told him the truth about Falun Dafa, the self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square, forced live-organ harvesting, and how Falun Dafa is being practiced in over 100 countries and regions around the world. I also told him about the rapid decline of human moral standards and how gods are always compassionately enlightening people to do good and stay away from evil.
I also told him about how the Nazis were condemned and put on trial years later for persecuting the Jews. Even the cooks and nurses working under the Nazis were being put on trial.
He accepted what I said and even took some notes so he wouldn’t forget. He even wanted me to send a cellphone text message to remind him. I reminded him to have his friends and family quit the CCP and its youth organizations and also told him the story of how a village recovered from the CCP virus after reciting “Falun Dafa is good.” I helped him quit the Party and he did it using his real name. We wished each other well and he even said to call him anytime.
Thank you, Master, for arranging all these predestined people to listen to the truth and to encourage me. Thank you, Master, for intricately arranging for me to save sentient beings by studying the Fa, memorizing the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts, doing the three things, and calling and clarifying the truth to China’s public security officers with other practitioners on the RTC platform.
