(Minghui.org) The Minghui website published 34 experience-sharing articles during the 20th China Fahui held November 5 to 15, 2023. These articles show how practitioners in China solidly cultivate their xinxing, save sentient beings and follow Falun Dafa’s principles. Practitioners outside China said they greatly benefited from reading the articles. They found their shortcomings and said they felt inspired to cultivate more diligently.
Studying the Fa and Clarifying the Truth
Mr. Zhang from Taitung, Taiwan noticed the distance between practitioners in China and himself. He was very moved by their selflessness and righteous thoughts and actions. He said, “It’s not easy for practitioners in China to constantly maintain strong righteous thoughts. They make good use of their time doing what they should do. I admire them so much.”
In the article, “Saving People Has Nothing to Do with the Persecution”, this practitioner elevated himself by studying the Fa and memorizing the Fa. He let go of his attachments and notions step by step. He melted into the Fa and gained insights at higher levels. He saved sentient beings with a selfless and pure heart. The power of the Fa enabled him to do a good job at work, clarify the truth and save sentient beings smoothly.
Mr. Zhang said, “Compared with him, I don’t always treasure my time. The practitioners in China squeeze in time to study the Fa and do things to validate the Fa. They always keep strong righteous thoughts. The environment here in Taiwan is relaxed, but this doesn’t mean I can relax my cultivation. The Fa-rectification is progressing quickly. I’d better hurry up. We should act like the practitioners in China and study the Fa well, do the three things well so we can elevate ourselves and save more sentient beings.”
People Are Moved by Practitioners’ Words and Actions
Ms. Wang began practicing Falun Dafa four years ago. She was moved by the article, “Falun Dafa Practitioner’s Words and Actions Touch People”. This practitioner agreed to look after her manager’s elderly parents in order to save them. She put Dafa’s principles into action, looked after the parents and considered them first. She gained the entire family’s respect. They all withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Ms. Wang said that it was not easy to be a good person in such a harsh environment in China. Practitioners’ every word and action display the truth of Falun Dafa to people and let them feel practitioners’ goodness and kindness.
In the article “The Technical Service Role Is a Great Cultivation Opportunity”, the 74-year-old practitioner became the local technical support and resolved computer issues for practitioners even though she only had a few years of education. She was remarkable. Sometimes she was misunderstood by other practitioners, but she treated any issues with righteous thoughts. When she compared herself with this practitioner, Ms. Wang said she feels wronged or resentful if other practitioners say something that she doesn’t want to hear. She doesn’t even want to look at them. She has to struggle for some time and gradually rectify herself in the Fa before she calms down. She could see this practitioner’s huge tolerance which encouraged her to become more broad-minded.
Ms. Wang was also moved by the article “My Experience as a Minghui Correspondent in the Early Years of the Persecution” The practitioner had the task to relay the persecution information to the Minghui website. This is easy to do in a relaxed democratic society. But it’s risky under the totalitarian regime in China. The practitioner needed massive courage and wisdom to submit the cultivation stories and the persecution news to the Minghui website.
Steadfast Faith Reveals Falun Dafa’s Power
After reading the article “Steadfast Faith Reveals Falun Dafa’s Power”, Wexia, a practitioner from Tainan, said, “This practitioner cultivated himself solidly, let go of attachments, improved his xinxing and safeguarded Falun Dafa despite the vicious environment. I learned a lot from him.”
The practitioner had a big improvement in doing the sitting meditation during his detention. When he realized the meaning of “disintegrating karma by suffering,” he refused to uncross his legs when he meditated, no matter how painful it became. Eventually he could sit in the full lotus position (both legs crossed) for more than an hour. He kept pushing himself further despite the excruciating pain. Finally he was able to sit in full lotus position for 4 hours. He felt his body was elevated in other dimensions and understood the inner meaning of the expression, “body and spirit join together.”
He used to be timid and introverted. He was nervous and couldn’t express himself well in public. He trained himself in public speaking while countering the persecution. Falun Dafa opened up his wisdom. He was able to talk eloquently facing high-ranking officials, experts or a professor and exposed the vicious persecution.
After he was released from the forced labor camp, he was able to do the three things well even though the police closely monitored him as a key practitioner. During the pandemic lockdown, he didn’t relax in saving sentient beings. Wenxia said in admiration: “His actions demonstrated his steadfast belief in Master and Dafa and displayed the power of Falun Dafa. These are the most important elements to ensure that practitioners can overcome hardships and tribulations.”
Recognizing One’s Shortcomings and Cultivating Diligently
Fenni has practiced Falun Dafa for more than 20 years. She was greatly encouraged when she read the China Fahui articles. She was moved by the Chinese practitioners who were able to let go of life and death and charged forward despite the horrific environment in China.
The article “Clarifying the Truth No Matter the Difficulty” showed the practitioner’s determination in cultivating in Dafa. Even though her journey was difficult, the practitioner narrated it calmly without any resentment. By reading the article Fenni understood the inner meaning of belief.
She said that righteous and steadfast belief in Master and Dafa implies that practitioners comply with the Fa’srequirements unconditionally and put them into practice in our daily lives. While coming across tests, this practitioner looked at the issues positively from the Fa perspective and negated any negative thoughts.
When she looked at herself, Fenni found that she felt sad or negative when she encountered setbacks while involved in challenging projects. In her mind, positive and negative factors often fought with each other. In other words, her demon nature was battling with her Buddha nature. As a result, most of her efforts di not always achieve the best results.
She realized from the article that little time is left. Gods are scrutinizing our every thought and action. She said that she has to seize the remaining opportunities and cultivate diligently.
