(Minghui.org) Every Falun Dafa practitioner has stories of how they have assimilated to the Fa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, improved their moral standard, and upheld Dafa’s reputation. Our words and deeds are the best way to convince people of Dafa’s goodness.

“You Could Have Endured This With Grievance, But You Didn't.”

My mother couldn’t find her gold earrings. She asked if I had taken them. I said no. She then said, “Ask your child if she took them.” I replied, “She is in her thirties. Why would she take your things?” Mother later told my siblings that my daughter or I had taken her earrings.

My sister-in-law asked me about the earrings. I said that I had never seen them and that my daughter couldn’t have taken them either. However, she still wanted me to check with my daughter. The next day I asked my daughter if she had taken them. My daughter became very upset and said, “How could you think I took them?” Everyone looked at me in silence. I didn’t say anything and went away. I looked inward and knew it was a good time to get rid of my attachment to saving face and resentment. I didn’t say more about this issue.

A year later, my mother passed away. When my sister-in-law sorted out my mother’s belongings, she found my mother’s gold earrings in a small box. She said, “You could have endured this with grievance, but you didn't.”

“Do You Not Like to Have More Money?”

My mother gave me the key to her drawer a few days before she passed away. After she died, I opened it and saw a lot of money. I locked up the drawer immediately. I decided to give the money to my younger brother because he gave my mother a lot of money whenever he visited her. He also gave me a lot of money when my mother was in the hospital.

I then invited my six siblings to my home and opened the drawer in front of them. I gave the money to my younger brother in front of my siblings. Everyone present looked at me in awe and respect. All my siblings knew that I didn’t have to do this, as nobody else knew about the money.

My elder brother asked me, “Do you not like to have more money?” I said, “It’s not mine.” My younger brother said, “Dafa practitioners are different. Who among us could have handled money in this way?”

“She Always Thinks Of Others!”

When my mother was alive, all my brothers, sisters, and relatives came to my home and stayed for about 10 days during holidays. I spent a lot of money on food and had to work long hours cooking and cleaning up, but I never complained.

One of my aunts said, “Falun Dafa is good! She was so harsh and cunning before she practiced Falun Dafa, but she became a different person afterward.” Another aunt also said, “She always thinks of others!”

“She Is So Different From Other People!”

On one occasion, more than 30 relatives and friends came to my home for the holidays, so I went to a restaurant and booked a dinner. When I got home, I felt that the atmosphere was not right. My sister-in-law suddenly yelled at me and said she wouldn’t forgive me. I felt confused and embarrassed in front of so many friends and relatives.

I later heard that my sister-in-law had gotten into an argument with my younger sister, and my sister-in-law misunderstood me. I looked inward and found my attachment to saving face, competition, resentment, jealousy, and selfishness. I realized this conflict resulted from my attachments. I stayed calm and asked my husband and brother to pass along my apology to my sister-in-law and sister.

The next day, all my relatives and friends went to the restaurant. The atmosphere was somber due to the conflict from the previous day. I took the microphone and said, “Hello, everyone! Thank you all for coming! It is the fate of all of us to gather here today, so we should cherish it. I hope we treat each other with kindness and tolerate each other when things go wrong. Don’t be angry with each other! May everyone here have a good time!”

The atmosphere became more lively. My cousin said, “I thought you would be upset, but you made such a touching speech.” My brother’s friend then exclaimed, “She is so different from other people! I could tell she is really a practitioner.” My sister-in-law also spoke to me warmly and apologized.

I still have a lot of attachments to remove, such as jealousy, the show-off mentality, and resentment. These are all obstacles on my cultivation path. I will cultivate diligently, do the three things well, and validate the preciousness of Falun Dafa with my words and deeds.

Thank you Master!
