(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners have endured the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution for more than 22 years since July 20, 1999. We’ve been through many ups and downs and eliminated many attachments. Our experiences as we assist Master Li (Dafa’s founder) in rectifying the Fa are like precious jewels—practitioners had the courage to not succumb to the persecution while at the same time saving sentient beings. I’m honored to write down their experiences and document these historic moments.
Submitting a Cultivation Sharing Experience for the First Time
I met a new practitioner and she told me about her amazing experiences. Shortly after she began practicing she was hospitalized. She started to have spasms and her body curled into a “U” shape. The other patients in her ward were very anxious but did not know how to help her. One thought flashed into her mind: I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and I will ask Master to save me. She put her palms together in heshi (a gesture of respect) and said, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Master please save me!” She repeated this three times and the third time, she was able to straighten her body. She no longer cried out in pain. The other patients said Falun Dafa was miraculous.
She was also able to easily thread a needle and became more compassionate. When no one wanted to take care of her father-in-law, she took care of him herself.
I wrote down her experiences and gave it to another practitioner since I did not have access to Minghui.org at that time. Not long after the article was handed in, I saw her story was published in a truth-clarification flyer. I was astonished and thought to myself: Did the story really get published on the Minghui website? This encouraged me to continue submitting cultivation papers to Minghui.
Compiling Our Local Truth-Clarification Flyer
I met a veteran practitioner who was good at editing articles about the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. She was precise in her word choice and carefully revised each sentence over and over. She never complained about the difficulty. When I worked with her, I was touched by her unflagging patience.
With her encouragement, we wrote two local special issues to expose the local persecution. After being approved by Minghui, practitioners in our area distributed these flyers locally, from cities to villages, to thousands of households. This deterred those carrying out the persecution, it also lessened the persecution in our area. After this, I felt that I should pick up my pen and use my writing ability to validate Dafa.
Submitting My Cultivation Experiences
Since then, I began submitting my cultivation experiences and participating in the annual online Minghui Conference. The writing process is also a form of cultivation for me. I experienced a lot of interference in the beginning—symptoms of a cold, coughing, or a sore throat. With Master’s strengthening, I could complete my writing and submit my sharing paper after I overcame these tribulations. I realized that as long as I write with a pure mind and heart, and although it might not be published during the online Fahui period, it would be published sometime later on the Minghui website. This was an encouragement to me and increased my confidence.
There are many diligent practitioners around me and I realized that I should encourage and help them write down their experiences.
Helping Another Practitioner Write Her Article
I had an opportunity to help an elderly practitioner who was anxious about submitting her article. When I heard that she was illiterate, I got on my electric bike and headed over to her house. She narrated her story while I wrote it down. I clarified some minor details.
I enlightened that we should not feel bothered during the process of helping other practitioners. Every detailed description should be truthful and we should not exaggerate since we cultivate the principle of “Truthfulness.”
While I edited her article, I was able to see how determined she was in clarifying the truth. She has persisted in distributing truth-clarification flyers for 21 years and her sincerity and diligence touched me. I was able to complete an experience-sharing article for the first time. The article was published on the Minghui website, in sections. Perhaps this was Master’s way of encouraging me in cultivation.
I enlightened to the fact that practitioners should eagerly submit their experience sharing articles for the annual China Minghui online conference. Master has given us this opportunity to upgrade our xinxing. I also felt that submitting our articles is like handing in our homework to Master. Now whenever I see a call for articles for the China Fahui, I actively encourage local practitioners to submit their cultivation experiences. When some veteran practitioners told me that they are still lacking in cultivation or have nothing to write about, I suggest they write a short story or something prominent that sticks out in their memory.
Their cultivation experiences are very motivating and encouraging. When I read them I’m moved to be more diligent in my own cultivation.
Locals Receiving Blessings from Learning the Truth about Dafa
I have clarified the truth to many people around me, from my colleagues to family, to my classmates and teachers, most of them know the truth about Falun Dafa. Those who accepted the truth and quit the CCP and its youth organizations have received blessings while those who rejected what I said met with misfortune. Upon clarifying the truth to the latter group a second time, their misfortunes disappear. I submit articles about them and my articles have been published on Minghui.
During this process, I was able to eliminate many attachments such as the showing off mentality, jealously, not being able to take criticism, and saving face.
When many of my articles were published on Minghui, I realized that this might be my historic vow: To validate the Fa by documenting the details of our local practitioners’ cultivation journeys. My computer broke down when I decided to become a Minghui correspondent. I knew that the old forces were interfering with me. I bought a new computer and I was able to continue.
Stringing Together Precious Pearls on the Path of Cultivation
I’ve encountered many touching stories while talking with other practitioners and these are precious moments worth being documented. If they are published in Minghui, they might encourage practitioners in other regions. If an ordinary person reads them, it may be an opportunity for him to learn about Falun Dafa.
I started to ask other practitioners about their cultivation stories and I write and submit them during my lunch break or late at night.
I also compare the published articles with the original and look for grammatical errors. After I noticed that the published articles are more clear, concise, and persuasive, I began polishing the articles a few times before submitting them to Minghui in order to make it easier on the editors.
I feel that Master is enlightening me by pointing out my problems. I am very grateful to Master from the bottom of my heart and will work harder in all that I do by stringing together all these precious pearls on the path of cultivation.
Thank you Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
