(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa five years ago. I am grateful to Master Li, founder of Falun Dafa, for not giving up on me. Master helped eliminate my karma and saved me from hell. No words can describe my gratitude toward Master. To summarize all I have to say is: Thank you, Master!
I recently realized that writing and sharing cultivation experiences is a way to validate Dafa. I would like to share my following cultivation experiences.
Starting Practicing Dafa
I visited my aunt at the end of June 2016. My cousin placed the book Zhuan Falun on the table by itself. Her sincerity touched me and I thought: “Is this book really that great? I would like to read it and see.” I began to read Zhuan Falun wholeheartedly.
My cousin introduced Falun Dafa to me and gave me truth-clarification materials at the beginning of 2003. But because I was heavily influenced by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda at the time, I did not accept Dafa. Perhaps my predestined relationship with Dafa had yet to mature.
I was heavily instilled with Party culture from a young age and did not believe in the divine. I did not know what cultivation actually meant. After reading Zhuan Falun, I felt that what Master said was very profound and that Master knows everything. It also seemed that I had lived the first 58 years of my life in vain!
“I am a person who will not say what he does not want to say, but what I say must be true. Especially under this circumstance, if I do not tell the truth in teaching the Fa, if I make inconceivable statements, or if I speak aimlessly and casually, I will be teaching an evil Fa.” (Lecture Eight, Zhuan Falun)
I was very moved after reading Master’s teaching above. Master is truly magnificent and righteous. I felt that I had been waiting for Master and Dafa for millions of years.
I watched a video of Master’s Dafa exercise instruction and learned how to practice the exercises. With my cousin’s help, I obtained Zhuan Falun, over 40 other Falun Dafa books, and Master’s portrait. I embarked on a new life journey: studying the Fa, cultivating my xinxing, and being diligent in cultivation.
Studying the Fa and Cultivating My Moral Character
I have a good cultivation environment. I don’t need to worry about my son because he is married. I live by myself and wake up at 3:50 am every day to practice all five sets of the Falun Dafa exercises. I also send forth righteous thoughts four times every day. My meals are quite simple and I only cook once per day. For example, I cook a pot of noodles and eat them in two separate meals.
With the remaining time, I study the Fa. During the daytime, I often read three lectures of Zhuan Falun. I study Master’s other lectures during the evening. There isn’t a group Fa study site near where I live, so I cultivate alone. I have now read Zhuan Falun more than 200 times and have read all of Master’s other lectures seven times in total.
I listened to Master’s audio lectures in my spare time and even when showering. My cousin told me once, “You need to sit up straight while listening to Master’s lectures. You should not do other chores around the house and it is disrespectful to listen to Master’s lectures in the bathroom! It is a very solemn and dignified matter!” I now listen to other practitioners’ cultivation experiences while doing household chores.
Through studying the Fa and improving in cultivation, my thinking and my realm of thought have improved, and I understand more principles. I know that the purpose of being human is to return to one’s true origin. Master has given us Zhuan Falun, a book that can guide us to return to Heaven.
I learned that Falun Dafa practitioners’ historic mission is to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. I am very fortunate to be a Dafa disciple. I will fulfill my historic mission and steadfastly and genuinely cultivate Dafa. I will assist Master in Fa-rectification, strive forward diligently, succeed with Consummation and return home.
My celestial eye is not open and I cannot see or hear things from other dimensions. However, I cultivate solidly my faith in Master and enlightenment from Dafa.
I did not seek to cure my illness, and I did not have any major ailments when I started to practice Dafa. Prior to cultivating Dafa, I had a bile duct stone and had to take medication daily to dissolve it.
I usually purchased a six-month supply of the medication from the pharmacy. Due to my poor enlightenment quality, I continued to take this medication even after cultivating Dafa. I did not want to waste the medication. I told my cousin, “Let me finish the remaining medication. When I am done with it, I won’t buy anymore.”
While studying the Fa one day, I was enlightened that Master has already cleansed our bodies. I should not put this black substance into my body. As the old saying goes, “Medications are more or less toxic to your body.” I stopped taking the medication and have not taken any since.
I have become healthier over the last five years. I look more high-spirited and have a fair facial complexion. I seem to be in my forties, though in reality, I am in my sixties.
Last year, I met a practitioner who started cultivating Dafa in 1994. She attended Master’s lecture classes in Jinan City and has very strong righteous thoughts. She supported me in cultivation and I progressed a lot. I was wearing reading glasses while reading truth-clarification materials.
She looked at me and said, “You should take off your reading glasses. None of us need reading glasses anymore.” Indeed, a couple of elderly practitioners in their eighties no longer need their reading glasses.
I said, “Yes, I should take them off.” A miracle happened right after this thought crossed my mind. I was able to see the smallest font in the Dafa books and was even able to do needlework without eyeglasses. Dafa is truly miraculous and extraordinary.
