(Minghui.org) I’m a teacher who began practicing Falun Dafa in March 1998. Even though I’ve cultivated for a long time, I was not very diligent. After Jiang Zemin’s (former CCP leader) regime launched the persecution of Falun Dafa in 1999, I lost the environment for group Fa study and ended up practicing alone.
I rarely studied the Fa but had a strong will to do things for Dafa. I was falsely accused when I talked to students and parents about Falun Dafa. I was then detained and persecuted for several years. After I came back from prison, my husband did not allow me to study the Fa or practice the exercises. So I slacked off, and there were constant conflicts in our family.
Master Li (Falun Dafa’s founder) gave me some hints. In a dream, I couldn’t answer the questions in several exams and was very anxious. I then came across an experience-sharing article by a fellow practitioner. The practitioner said he saw Master in a dream and said, “Master, I have recited Zhuan Falun several times, memorized it several times, and read through it several times.” But Master didn’t look happy; he just said,
“Cultivating gong has a pathmind is the way” (“Falun Dafa,” Hong Yin)
Only then did I realize it meant I had not cultivated my mind. From then on, I worked hard on cultivating my mind and never missed any opportunity to improve. I understood what Master said,
“The entire cultivation process for a cultivator is one of constantly giving up human attachments.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
I once went out to talk to people about Falun Dafa. It was not too late when I returned home to cook, but my husband started to make trouble. As soon as I walked into the middle of the yard, my husband started to curse loudly. As I entered the house, he beat me, kicked me to the ground, and asked why I didn’t cook! I thought that I must “bear it” and thank him from the bottom of my heart, because I’m a Dafa practitioner, and he was helping me eliminate karma.
I got up and apologized to my husband. He didn’t hit me again and even cooked with me. I felt very calm while eating the meal. If we don’t expect anything from others, we can endure it. In the past, I always held a lot of resentment in my heart, even though I kept my mouth shut. That’s why I couldn’t pass tests quickly.
In 2022, I joined a Fa-study group at the home of my neighbor’s aunt. At first, I went without telling my husband. This year, my husband found out about it and didn’t say anything. He also didn’t interfere with my doing the three things. He likes to play computer games. He once played until midnight and even reminded me to get up to send forth righteous thoughts at twelve o’clock. My husband was becoming a different person. I knew that Master was helping me.
I feel that fellow practitioners are like family members. And it feels like I’m at home at the group Fa study. The practitioners are open-hearted, helpful, and learn from one another. Thank you, Master, for giving me this beautiful environment.
After the COVID lockdown was lifted last year, my husband was infected. He had a high fever and nothing helped. At 2 a.m. one night, he called me and said, “I’m going to die. I can’t breathe. I’m suffocating! What should I do?” I said, “There is no other way but to ask Master and Dafa to save you.” So he started to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and he kept repeating it. He also said, “I did a lot of things that were disrespectful to Master and the Fa. I also said things that I shouldn’t have said. I was wrong.”
After a while, he said he was sleepy and fell asleep. We went to the hospital the next day. While waiting in line, I told him: “Write a statement about the things you said and did that were disrespectful to Dafa. Post it on the Minghui website and admit your mistake to Master.” He agreed. That night he regained strength and was able to eat.
After he was discharged from the hospital, I told him to believe that Dafa is good. He said: “Dafa is good, but the Party pays my wages.” I replied: “It persecutes good people and even harvests organs from practitioners while they’re still alive and sells them to make huge profits. How evil is that?” He then lost his temper and said: “Stop talking!” I sighed in my heart; it’s so difficult to save people. Let it go!
In March of this year, my husband felt unwell again and had symptoms of a cold. Medication and an infusion were not effective. He said: “What's wrong with me? No one else is like me.” I said: “You let the evil Party deceive you, and you didn’t listen to the truth I told you. This time you must make a clear choice.” He said: “I know Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” He kept reciting the nine-character phrase silently on the way to the hospital. The CT scan showed it was pneumonia. My husband recovered after staying in the hospital for three days. The doctor was surprised: “It takes at least a week to recover from pneumonia. It’s incredible that you recovered so quickly.”
When sharing with fellow practitioners, I realized that it was only after I started truly cultivating that my cultivation environment changed. It is true that Dafa is omnipotent! Only by getting rid of human attachments and becoming a qualified Dafa disciple can we awaken more people. Thank you, our compassionate and great Master!
