(Minghui.org) Business owner Wen Bin lay in a hospital bed looking at his mobile phone one day in mid-November 2022, when he found a video program interviewing Falun Gong practitioners from all walks of life around the world. He was immediately interested.
“Their stories were sincere and real. What impressed me the most was the interview with Mr. Zhong, a former police officer in China. He described the days when he was with Master Li. What he said was so real and touching that I immediately decided to practice Falun Gong,” Wen Bin said.
He found and watched videos online of Master Li’s teaching the Fa in China. He usually had difficulty falling asleep but often fell asleep while watching the videos.
As soon as he was discharged from the hospital in mid-December he found the closest Falun Gong practice site, and learned the exercises. After he learned all five sets of exercises, he started attending a nine-day Falun Dafa Class on the evening of February 9, 2023.
“After I finished the nine-day class, I read the book Zhuan Falun which is really profound and wonderful! Every time I read the book, I always feel an indescribable power,” he said, “I read it repeatedly, my character continues to improve, so I think Zhuan Falun is really amazing.”
After he began practicing, Wen Bin said that he did not have any special or miraculous experiences. He just did what Master asked, and his body and mind changed. Some friends said that he was radiant, and his wife said that his temper improved.
He realized that cultivation, “should improve one’s character.” He added, “Cultivation, just paying lip service without applying it in real life is useless.”
Insomnia Gone Without Medication
Wen Bin had an autonomic nervous system disorder and took medication for seven years. After he started practicing Falun Gong, his insomnia disappeared and he stopped taking the medicine. “I no longer have trouble sleeping. I recovered and no longer need the medicine,” he explained.
“After I had the COVID injection in 2021, I had difficulty lifting my left arm. Now I’m fine. Some people may think it’s mysterious, but it’s not. This is a fact.”
As the person in charge of several stores, he is very busy at work. As he continues practicing Falun Gong, he feels that his energy has improved. When he wakes up in the morning, he feels energetic and gets up right away.
Wen Bin said that sitting cross-legged was difficult for him when he first started practicing the meditation. However, he understood from the Fa that this was a process of eliminating karma, and that he should persevere when his legs hurt. He realized, “If you put them down when your legs hurt, then it’s useless. You must endure it, because you’re eliminating karma.”
Master Li said in Zhuan Falun:
“When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible.”
Sometimes when his legs hurt and he really couldn’t calm down, he silently recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance is good,” and he persevered. One time, he was able to meditate with both legs crossed for an entire hour.
Practicing Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in Business
Wen Bin started working in wholesale and later entered the retail business. He said, “When doing business thirty or forty years ago, we had to tell clients a product was good in order to sell it even if it was no good. If we didn’t lie, we couldn’t close the deal. It’s a common practice in business.”
He later realized that this was wrong, as lying creates karma and he was harming other people’s interests. He’s slowly changed. “I now face customers truthfully and tell them the truth. Whether a customer can accept it or not, both are fine with me. After practicing Falun Gong, I know I have to mind my speech. I should only speak the truth and not say anything that hurts others,” he said.
No Longer Loses His Temper
His temper has changed a lot since he started practicing Falun Gong. He used to be impatient and lose his temper easily. Sometimes when someone in front of him was driving slowly, he became angry and wanted to pass them.
“In the past six months I have been strict with myself and I remind myself every day to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Sometimes I still go my own way, but now I remind myself and correct it immediately. If your behavior has not been cultivated, it is a lie to say how much your xinxing has improved.”
Spread the Truth and be Diligent in Cultivation
Wen Bin participated in a rally and parade in Taiwan to commemorate the peaceful petition by ten thousand Falun Gong practitioners in China on April 25, 1999. He later participated in the candlelight vigil on July 20 to commemorate those who died during the persecution.
He said, “The Communist Party is stupid. Falun Gong practitioners are all good people! If everyone practiced Falun Gong, there would be so many kind-hearted people. Society would become better, and we would not even need police.”
He recalled the story of Mr. Zhong, a former police officer, “He was a police officer, and he also practiced Falun Gong. He said that when Master taught Falun Gong there (in Beijing), some drug addicts recovered. It’s really difficult for a drug addict to quit, but they quit after they practiced Falun Gong.”
Wen Bin said he feels very fortunate to have found Falun Gong and began practicing. In order to let more people know about Falun Gong and have the opportunity to experience the beauty of the practice as he did, Wen Bin provides the Minghui Weekly publication to customers in his stores.
