(Minghui.org) As 2021 draws to a close, Falun Dafa practitioners gathered to wish Master a Happy New Year at Pitouhuiben Park in Yunlin County, Taiwan, on December 5, 2021. They also held a Falun Dafa experience sharing conference to strive to be more diligent in cultivation.
Practitioners were grateful that they’ve elevated physically and morally in Dafa. They shared their experiences of looking within, letting go of attachments and validating Dafa. They also encouraged each other to be more diligent and steadfast in cultivation.
Unconditionally Looking Within Dissolves a Conflict
Liyun is a retired middle school chief accountant. Her life was very smooth-sailing with a beautiful family, a happy marriage and distinguished children. Life seemed almost perfect for her, but deep down inside she always felt like she was missing something precious.
She shared on how she obtained the Fa. “Let me start my story from the word ‘predestined relationship,’” Liyun said. “About 20 years ago, when Falun Dafa was introduced and popular in many elementary schools all across Taiwan, I encountered a Falun Dafa seminar at a teaching center. I was not interested in Falun Dafa at the time because I was already practicing another form of qigong. However, the word ‘predestined relationship’ caught my ear when the chair of our department said, ‘Cultivation depends on one’s predestined relationship,’ so I decided to attend the seminar.”
“I realized that the ‘precious thing' I had been missing in my life was actually Falun Dafa. I had a very bad temper in the past, but after cultivating Falun Dafa, I eliminated many of my attachments and corrected my thoughts and actions.”
Liyun said, “My husband was an alcoholic and liked to play mahjong (a tile-based game that often involves gambling). After he started to practice Falun Dafa, he stopped drinking but was still addicted to playing mahjong. I would often get angry at him and we would get into intense arguments.
“I would wait for him to come home every night from playing mahjong. I would quarrel with him and get very angry when I was unable to maintain my xinxing,”
Through continuous Fa study and gaining a deeper understanding of Dafa, Liyun became calmer and looked inward unconditionally. Though she still experienced ups and downs in cultivation, she would often try to correct herself. She would get very anxious and frustrated in the past while waiting for her husband to come home, but after cultivating Dafa her temper started to change for the better.
She realized that she had to look inward unconditionally through continuous Fa study. She also enlightened to the fact that her husband’s actions were a reflection of her cultivation, “My husband will change for the better if I become more diligent in cultivation.” She apologized to her husband sincerely, “I am very sorry. This is all my fault!” Her husband was very surprised at Liyun’s positive attitude and praised her, “You’re more diligent in cultivation than I am!” From then on, the conflicts between Liyun and her husband slowly dissolved.
Mother and Daughter Reconcile
Huang Ye, an elderly woman, shared the positive changes she had experienced in cultivation. She has felt Master’s boundless, merciful compassion and experienced extraordinary things through cultivating Dafa.
“I have a stepdaughter from my husband’s previous marriage. Her name is Xiao Juan and she grew up to be very rebellious and disliked me very much because she was brought up in a very strict environment. She refused to call me “mom” and we did not get along very well,” she said.
Huang Ye decided to escape the situation by working as a caretaker who provided 24-hour care in a hospital. It was not until her older sister gifted her the book Zhuan Falun that she started cultivating Falun Dafa.
Huang Ye was illiterate and could not make out the Chinese characters in the book Zhuan Falun. She said, “I asked Master for help. How could I study the Fa if I didn’t know how to read? I asked Master to help me. I wanted to cultivate and study the Fa.”
“Then something miraculous happened!” she said, “While sleeping, I felt Master bestowing me with all the words in Zhuan Falun. When I woke up the next day, I was able to read, and each Chinese character was beaming light.”
Though Huang Ye was illiterate, she was able to comprehended Master’s lectures in Zhuan Falun and said, “Master teaches us to look inward, cultivate our xinxing and to also eliminate our attachments. I should not be too confrontational with Xiao Juan. I need to be more compassionate to her and treat her well.”
She went to meet Xiao Juan and said to her, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner now and I abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I am truly sorry for my actions in the past.” Xiao Juan was touched by Huang Ye’s sincerity and called Huang Ye “mom” for the first time. They cried, hugged each other dearly and resolved their grudges.
