(Minghui.org) I started cultivating Falun Dafa in early 1996. Reflecting on my cultivation path over two decades, I have a lot to say. I feel from the bottom of my heart that it’s really a blessing to be able to cultivate in Dafa and follow Master Li (Dafa’s founder). Only by studying the Fa well, and firmly believing in Master and Dafa, can I do well in my cultivation.

Filed Criminal Complaint Against Jiang Zemin

Dafa practitioners need truth clarification materials to save people, so I decided to learn how to make them. I overcame a number of difficulties, and with the help of other practitioners, I was able to make the materials and supply other practitioners. I also coordinated a Fa study group, so we could study the Fa and share experiences together, which still continues.

In 2015, practitioners wrote criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin, former Chinese Communist Party leader, for initiating the persecution of Falun Dafa, and filed them with the Supreme Peoples Court and Procuratorate. When I thought about how he persecuted Dafa practitioners and slandered Master, I knew I should write one too. I submitted my letter in June 2015. After the Second Supreme Court sent a receipt acknowledging receipt of my letter, four people from the Political and Legal Affairs Committee came knocking at my door.

I was making truth-clarifying materials at the time and quickly closed the bedroom door. I invited them in and served them water, but they didn’t want it, and aggressively asked what I had done. I responded: “I just sued Jiang Zemin. He’s a citizen of this country, I’m a citizen as well. He’s retired, and I’m also retired. He persecuted me. Why shouldn’t I sue him? I did it legally, don’t I have the right to do that?”

One of them, who looked like the leader, said to the other three, “Let’s go!”

I felt that this was odd, and asked them for an explanation. I later realized that the evil controlling them had been dissolved with my righteous thoughts, so they couldn’t be fierce anymore. However, looking back, my attitude was not friendly, and I had an attachment to competitiveness.

When I received the criminal complaint receipt, I discussed the situation with other practitioners and told them why I sued Jiang. Other practitioners later submitted their letters of complaint and also received receipts from the Second Supreme Court.

Cultivate in Daily Life

I bought food and daily necessities for my elderly parents. When they were sick, as soon as I received their phone call, I would take a cab and go to their home to take care of them. When they were hospitalized, I would stay with them. Once, I was so tired and hungry that I passed out in the hospital. I didn’t complain that my two brothers didn't help.

After my parents passed away, my brothers fought over the property, money, and other things my parents left. I remained calm facing these issues. They took the issue to court, and the court decided that everything should be distributed equally between the three siblings. I gave what I received to my nephew because that’s what my parents wanted. I did what a practitioner should do.

I went to my daughter’s home, for they needed my help to look after my grandchildren. My son-in-law couldn’t understand why I practiced Falun Dafa and was afraid that my cultivation would affect him. He sometimes beat me, and his mother wouldn’t allow me to eat with them. I was born into a high-ranking official's family and we were well off. I had never suffered hardship, let alone been deprived of meals and beaten by the younger generation.

I normally got up at 5 a.m. and prepared breakfast for the whole family, while my son-in-law’s mother was still asleep. After she got up, she went outside to do some exercises. After breakfast, I cleaned the dining table, washed the dishes and clothes, and his mother would just sit there. In the afternoon, his mother would go to the hospital for physiotherapy, and go for a walk after dinner. After finishing all the house chores, I looked after my eight-month-old grandchild. I was very busy every day.

When I saw my son-in-law’s mother dress up nicely and go out, I was extremely angry. I thought: Who do you think you are? A village woman, 10 years younger than me, who smokes and is lazy. I really felt it was unfair.

A thought then came to my mind: You are a cultivator, who cultivates Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Isn’t this jealousy? Jealousy is not me, not something from Dafa, I don’t want it. As a cultivator, Master has said that nothing happens by chance. I had probably owed her something before and needed to pay it back during this lifetime.

I calmed down, and never fought with her again. I kept in mind that no matter how badly they treat me, I can’t do the same to them.

She had conflicts with her son and often cried. I comforted her and told her to pay attention to her health. I went to the hospital to visit her and gave her some money when she had a car accident. I kept the home tidy and clean, took care of my daughter and son-in-law, and took good care of my two grandchildren. They were two well-behaved kids and were outstanding in their studies. The mother-in-law and my daughter were moved by my good deeds.

I received good comments from people where my son-in-law worked. The staff and their families accused him and his mother of treating me badly. Later, my son-in-law had an affair and said that my practicing Falun Dafa affected his chance of promotion and so he wanted to divorce my daughter. Facing such a situation, I remained calm and told myself to handle the matter with the standards of a cultivator. I told my daughter to manage her temper well, and take care of the home and children, which moved my son-in-law.

My son-in-law didn’t get promoted and beat me. I said to him calmly: “You treat me badly, and you dare do so, but I am ashamed to expose you. My oldest grandson is growing up. What do you think he would think of you? God is looking at what everyone does. There’s law in the human world, and there’s one in heaven, which is Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Falun Dafa is Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. What’s wrong with cultivating by these principles.”

I sent forth righteous thoughts for him and told him to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its youth organizations. Whenever bad thoughts came to my mind, such as resentment, I was able to distinguish it from my true self, knowing it was not something from Dafa or what Master wanted. I eliminated it right away with righteous thoughts.

My behavior demonstrated that Falun Dafa is great and Dafa practitioners are good people. My son-in-law finally understood the truth about Dafa, changed his attitude, and finally got his promotion.

My daughter was also blessed for supporting my cultivation. During the pandemic, it was hard to stay employed, but my daughter not only had a stable job but also had her salary increased. Her whole family lives happily.

Thank you Dafa and Master!
