(Minghui.org) In 2003 I somehow found Falun Gong. After a short try at the exercises and reading Zhuan Falun, I promptly forgot all about it. 

Fast-forward to 2019. I had some serious health issues and lost my ability to play music (I had been performing in bands for many years). After recovery and rehab taking until 2020, I became restless. So I was looking for a new challenge. I had the sudden urge to study Mandarin Chinese. 

In the course of learning, I joined an online social platform with native Chinese speakers. Online, I met someone who lived in China. After chatting with this person for some time, I realized how wise he was. I asked him how he became so wise. My new friend always just said that he couldn’t talk about it. I asked again, and using only Master Li’s (Falun Dafa’s founder) initials, the person made it clear to me that he was a practitioner, cultivating in secret, inside China!

Master had not forgotten me, even though I had forgotten him for 17 years! The arrangement he made using a Chinese cultivator to bring me back to Falun Dafa was obvious. Tears of joy streamed down my face. I immediately began to cultivate again. 

I’ve since been a dedicated cultivator. Master has shown me some beautiful things to encourage me in my cultivation practice. He appeared to me in a dream, opened my Celestial Eye for a short time, and helped me achieve a deep meditative state. All of this after only a few months of cultivating! All these things validated the Fa for me.

Master never gave up on me, and I will never again stop cultivating. Thank you, Master!
