(Minghui.org) I was born in the 1980s as the child of veteran practitioners who started cultivating Dafa in 1998. However, I am a new practitioner who only started cultivating Dafa in June 2018.
Practicing Dafa after My Body and Mind Regained Health
In the 10 years or so before I obtained Dafa, I suffered from mild cervical spondylosis, which worsened over the years. Eventually, I had to see a doctor, who was able to relieve the symptoms but could not eliminate the root cause. I had to live with dizziness and memory loss.
Having a hot temper I did not hesitate to fight for fame and fortune, so I often felt dissatisfied with life; I also frequently quarreled with my husband, which added to my unhappiness.
My friend and I went to a mall to shop in March 2017. As soon as I entered the mall, I felt dizzy and weak. My friend helped me find a place to rest for a while. I then called a taxi and returned home. After returning home, I had lost the ability to prepare a meal, so my husband had to stay home to help me.
We then began the journey of seeking medical treatment. I had seen doctors of Chinese medicine and Western medicine and looked for Feng Shui doctors too, which cost nearly 20,000 yuan – all to no avail.
After a year of torture, I became mentally restricted and felt my brain was covered by a thin film. I couldn’t think normally, and everything looked dark. Sometimes I couldn’t understand what other people were saying. My head was just like being imprisoned in a dark cell. That kind of feeling was beyond words. I felt that I had an incurable disease, and my life was nearing its end.
Learning the Rudiments of Dafa
My mother had previously suggested I learn Dafa, but I hoped a doctor could cure my illness instead. Now I was desperate, and my mother said that only Dafa could save me. With no other choice, I chose to learn Dafa. After more than half a year of studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, I recovered slowly from my illness.
Although I also experienced an unbearable process of eliminating karma, with Master’s blessing, I survived. Six months later, all the uncomfortable symptoms in my body and mind disappeared. I felt as if I had been reborn. My mindset and personality changed. Dafa is so amazing!
I feel I am lucky to enter cultivation at the last moment of Fa-rectification, and I am grateful to Master for not leaving me behind.
What an honor it is to be a Dafa practitioner in this life! I understand that reincarnation of one life after another is for the purpose of obtaining the Fa today, helping Master to rectify the Fa, fulfilling the prehistoric vow, and the sacred and solemn mission, and returning home with Master.
Estranged Aunt Learns the Truth about Dafa
A veteran practitioner and I went out to clarify the truth together since last year. Then, after some time, I was able to clarify the truth and do the three withdrawals for people by myself.
When I had an aspiration and wanted to save people, Master would reinforce my righteous thoughts and open up my wisdom. I have persuaded many people to do the three withdrawals.
The occurrence of the pandemic at the end of last year especially increased my righteous thoughts for saving people. I think all beings are on the edge of the cliff, so I must save them, as practitioners are their only hope. If I don’t cherish the opportunity, once it is over, it will be too late for regret.
Over the past two years of cultivation, I have experienced many amazing manifestations. The most unforgettable thing is that after our village was reopened, I clarified the truth to my estranged aunt.
Sixteen years ago, my family and my uncle’s family had forged a deep hatred, and the two families broke off contact. When members of our two families met, we treated each other as enemies.
After cultivating Dafa, I understood that if I couldn’t love my enemy, I couldn’t reach consummation. In the early days of my cultivation, I once dreamed of my young uncle.
I learned the Fa late, and I often felt that I did not study the Fa enough. I thus improved slowly.
One day I had a thought of participating in an experience sharing meeting held by other practitioners in the county. I wanted to meet the other practitioners who had cultivated well and learn from their cultivation experiences.
I felt that this would definitely help me improve in my cultivation. One day I finally had the opportunity to sit together with other practitioners I hadn't met before and we read Lecture Six of Zhuan Falun.
When it was almost my turn, facing the large number of practitioners, I couldn’t help but become nervous. I wasn't sure what to do.
At that moment, I suddenly felt an energy field of compassion surround me, and the tension in me was gone. For the first time, I experienced the beauty of being integrated into the Dafa energy field.
The next day, I felt my condition was good, and I planned to visit some of my relatives. I brought informational booklets and cards.
I felt happy and had strong righteous thoughts of wanting to save others on the way to my mother's house. Everyone I met was friendly, and I felt people’s lives were precious. I wanted to tell them the truth.
As I was walking, I saw my aunt from a distance. She didn’t understand Dafa before, and I felt I should explain the truth to her myself this time.
I told her: “You see that Wuhan is a warning to the sentient beings in our area. When the catastrophe comes, only by constantly reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ understanding the truth and withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can save lives.”
I suggested she recite these auspicious words to her family when she got home, and she agreed. Then, I saw another woman and realized that she was my younger aunt who hadn't spoken to us in 16 years. However, she looked friendly. I understood life was precious, and the sentient beings were trapped in mystery. I had only one thought -- to clarify the truth to her.
Since I wore a mask at the time, she did not recognize me and went past me. She rode an electric bike and went quickly. I also rode my electric bike and tried to catch up with her. When I was approaching the entrance of my mother’s village, I caught up with her.
I said hello to her. At that time, I felt that there was no separation between us. I just felt that being a family member with her was to tell her the truth and save her. I decisively stopped her, asked her to stop for a while and, I would like to talk with her.
She seemed to have recognized me, but she was not sure I was talking to her. I pulled my mask down, and she said: “You are my second niece. We haven’t spoken for so many years. How come you look young and beautiful?”
I said: “This is because I practice Falun Dafa, and I was sick a year ago.” I continued: “I heard that you hurt your leg. So I want to encourage you to recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and you will get better.” I clarified the truth to her, and she quit the CCP organizations.
When I returned home, I felt what happened at that time seemed like a dream. The next day I realized that as long as I wanted to save people and held righteous thoughts, everything could be done with Master’s arrangement.
A few months later, my grandmother passed away. During the funeral, because my mother followed Master’s teachings to let go of her resentment, and talked to the younger aunt and uncle, our big family also reconciled.
What my mother did also left a good impression on our neighbors. They said my mother used to have a strong personality and was one who never bowed her head. She would have never done that if she didn’t practice Falun Dafa. Fellow practitioners, cultivate diligently; let us not waste the precious time extended by Master at this last critical moment in history.
Let us cultivate selflessness and hurry up to do the three things well.
