(Minghui.org) I would like to share with fellow practitioners some of my cultivation experiences from the past twenty years.
One day I met a close friend. She told me she was not feeling well and didn’t know what to do.
I asked her if she trusted me and she said, “Yes.” So I brought my VCD player and truth-clarification disc to her home.
Before playing the truth-clarifying VCD, I told her not to think about anything while watching it. I didn’t say a word either so she could watch the VCD quietly.
She was very happy after she finished watching. She was shocked by the manifestation of Dafa practitioners.
She said, “The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is so evil.” Her body was changing while she watched the VCD.
I saw with my third eye that there were three dots on her chest and the three dots extended downwards and became three columns. The three columns moved down and made her feel very comfortable.
She had conflicts with her neighbor before and was sinking into depression. After watching the VCD, she felt more comfortable and brightened up.
After understanding the truth, she quickly recovered. She also wanted to learn the Falun Dafa exercises.
I taught her the five sets of exercises and gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun. She said she would practice every day.
Another predestined person has since entered Dafa cultivation.
When I clarified the truth at a market, I met a northeastern lady in her seventies. She was leaning on a cane in front of a food stall, bending ninety degrees to look at the food she wanted to buy.
I walked up and asked her what happened to her back. She said, “I have severe pain in my back and legs. I believe in Jesus but it doesn’t work even though I kowtow to him every day.”
I told her to recite the nine words, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told her that her ailment could be cured by sincerely reciting these nine words.
In addition, I told her it would save her life when other disasters come, and the more she repeats those words, the healthier she would become.
The woman said she would say them for sure. I also gave her an amulet and taught her to read the nine words on it.
I told her it would work as long as she repeated the words sincerely. She was very grateful and held the amulet in her hand as if holding a treasure.
When I visited the food stall again another day, the elderly woman was there, too. She looked like a totally different person; she stood up straight, no longer bending 90 degrees anymore.
She told me she recited “Falun Dafa is good!” every day when she was walking, cooking, or resting. She thought about nothing else and just recited those words.
Without her noticing it, her back straightened up.
I said, “Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, will help you as long as you believe from your heart and recite those words sincerely. You should thank Master Li.”
She said, “I feel great. Thank you Falun Dafa’s Master! Thank you Falun Dafa’s Master!”
I told the woman to spread the news to her family, friends and neighbors, to let them benefit as well. She said she’s been telling them her story of being blessed by reciting “Falun Dafa is good.”
Once I went to distribute truth-clarification booklets at a market. When I was walking along the main street, I suddenly sensed something ominous.
I saw two men in their thirties staring at me, and I decided to wait until they left before handing out more booklets. After they left, I continued to distribute the booklets along the street.
After I gave out a dozen booklets, suddenly I felt a hand grab my clothes and I couldn’t break free. I had one thought, “Master, please help me!”
At that time, we stood underneath a two-story building that was under construction. The man who grabbed me said, “It’s not easy to catch you. Now I am going to report you!”
I realized he must be deceived by the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and I should inspire his kindness so he could be saved. So I said to him, “I am distributing the booklets to save people, including you. You should read the booklet at home.”
I went on to say, “Once you understand it, you will have a beautiful future.” He said, “What beautiful future? I don’t believe in anything.”
I saw that it was hard to save him, but I couldn’t let him commit crimes against Dafa. Just as both of us were deadlocked, a worker from the worksite asked us to leave.
Master was helping me in this crisis. Dafa also has a majestic side, so I said sternly to the man, “Please let go. If you don’t let go, you will be fully responsible for the consequences of your actions!”
He immediately let go. We were only ten meters away from the road, and all the vehicles on the road had come to a standstill.
The whole time/space field had stopped, and I realized that Master was protecting me. A burst of heat circulated through my body, and tears flowed from my eyes.
It was exactly like:
“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
Last year I stayed at my son’s home to take care of his child. One day in the summer I didn’t feel well.
I felt air blowing in my body and my body would hurt wherever anything touched it. I couldn’t sit or lie down, and due to the pain, I could only stand, and at times I involuntarily cried out, “Oh! Darn, darn,” and so on.
Suddenly I realized that I should fundamentally deny these bad thoughts and words. What was manifesting were my human notions, and the evil was taking advantage of my shortcomings in cultivation to persecute me.
I realized that the evil must be eliminated. Therefore, as soon as a serious condition appeared, I sent righteous thoughts to eliminate it: “I am a Dafa practitioner. I can't acknowledge what Master doesn’t acknowledge. These feelings are false, and I will definitely be able to overcome these evil arrangements.”
I studied four lectures of Zhuan Falun that day, and Dafa untied the knots in my heart.
“Another situation is that in qigong practice one will be scared when qi gets congested somewhere in the body or when qi goes to the top of the head and cannot come down. The human body is a small universe. Particularly in a Taoist practice, when qi is going through a pass, one will run into these problems. If qi cannot go through the pass, it will hover around there. This can occur not only at the top of the head, but also in other parts of the body; however, one is most sensitive at the top of the head. Qi will ascend to the top of the head and then come rushing down. When the qi cannot go through a pass, one will feel that the head is heavy and swollen as if wearing a thick hat of qi, etc. But qi cannot dictate anything, and neither can it cause any trouble or bring about any illness whatsoever.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
Suddenly, I realized that the pain was nothing, and it couldn’t do anything to me. I quickly returned to normal when I let go of my attachment.
When I looked inward, I found many human attachments, such as attachments to competition, resentment, jealousy, vanity and liking to hear pleasing things. The ongoing conflicts between my daughter-in-law and me exposed all my attachments.
The illusion of sickness karma was caused by those human attachments. My daughter-in-law was helping me improve my xinxing. But I didn’t thank her, instead I resented her. When I realized this, I reminded myself to be strict with myself.
When my daughter-in-law “touches my sore spot,” I have to practice forbearance first. No matter how she treats me, I say nothing and then look inward.
I do everything I can to try and find my corresponding attachment. Cultivation is just like this, step by step.
After I looked inward, I passed the test of sickness karma within four days. I have learned a great lesson from the experience of overcoming sickness karma.
I made a wish that I would get along with my daughter-in-law, and I really did it! My heart is no longer moved when she treats me badly.
I always maintain a happy and peaceful state. I no longer get mad when I see my daughter-in-law mad, and instead I care about her more and treat her even better.
She has changed as well. My daughter said that we both changed and our family is in harmony.
At this last moment of assisting Master in the Fa rectification, I will listen to Master, do the three things well, fulfill my vows and return to my true home.
