Walking Steadily on Our Cultivation Path
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from the Hunan Province countryside. I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998 and recovered from many illnesses.
Cultivation helped me turn into a person with high moral values. I used to be jealous, narrow-minded, and fight for personal interests. Now, I am considerate and think of others first, even when I am treated unfairly. I follow Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. Thus, people have come to know that Falun Dafa is good through my actions.
Clarifying the Truth to People Face to Face
My husband is a practitioner of Chinese medicine and he sees many patients. His occupation presented an easy opportunity for me to talk with him about Falun Dafa. For example, he took my advice and stopped accepting gifts from his patients.
Master said: “No loss, no gain. To gain, you must lose.” ("Lecture in Sydney")
Outside of my family, many people agree that Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, was inhuman for his persecution of Dafa practitioners.
I tell people that Master said, “One must begin by being a good person. One should always improve xinxing, always suffer hardships, ascend constantly in cultivation, and always seek to upgrade xinxing.” (Zhuan Falun)
When I have Dafa informational materials, I give them out after I clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people in other cities, counties, and countrysides.
After the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published, I tried to persuade people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I talked to many officers in various government departments, company managers, and people from the general public.
I talked to a 610 Office deputy director about Dafa. He told my son later that he hated to arrest or detain practitioners, because they were indeed good people. He resigned from the 610 Office job and returned to his previous job.
My friends, relatives, fellow villagers, and nearby villagers listen to me talking about Dafa and many have decided to quit the Party. Some people have bought Zhuan Falun, and some introduced others to me to learn the facts about Dafa.
Witnessing Dafa's Power
Wang (alias) had heart and lung problems. He could not find a cure and thought there was nothing that could help him.
I talked to him about Dafa and suggested that he frequently recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He really took to heart what I said and was discharged from the hospital 10 days later. He indeed recovered after just reciting the two sentences. When he saw me again, he expressed his gratitude. But I asked him to thank the founder of Dafa.
Hua (alias) is an elderly lady from my village. I talked to her about Falun Dafa and helped her quit the CCP. One day, she was involved in a crash on a mountain road. The driver broke his leg and was hospitalized for a month, while she was not injured.
One day five people came to see my husband for treatment. My husband was not at home. I talked to them about Falun Dafa and helped them withdraw from the CCP. After a while they said that they no longer felt ill and left.
On another occasion I talked to five people about Dafa and quitting the CCP. They indeed quit. One man said that he was going to have surgery. I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day and that he might not need to have an operation. He came to my home two years later and said that he recovered without any operation.
Being Safe Despite Danger
I was reported to the police several times for clarifying the truth. One time, I was arrested and taken to the police station. I did not hold any fear and sent forth righteous thoughts all the way to the police station. When the police officers interrogated me, I talked to them about Dafa and signed the document as “Falun Dafa is good” instead of my name. I was released several hours later.
Harmonious Family Life
People used to think that I had the perfect family, but it was just the opposite: My husband had a bad temper, had affairs, hit me, and swore at me. I was in constant fear of him, felt aggrieved, and complained about him.
I came to know the meaning of life after I practiced Falun Dafa. I followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life and looked within during times of conflict. After looking within, I realized that I was arrogant and thought myself to be better than him.
“They all have karmic reasons and are of karmic retribution. You must repay the debt if you have it.” (Zhuan Falun)
After reading Master's Fa, I realized that I might owe my husband from a prior life. Everything I came across was related to my cultivation, and that there was room for me to improve. I let go of my attachments and started to look after him better. I did more housework than he did, and when he cursed me, I did not take it to heart. I practiced what Master asked of me: “While bearing all of this, you did not stoop to his level and your heart was very calm. You did not hit back or swear back.” (Lecture in Sydney)
I knew he was helping me improve my xinxing, so I practiced forbearance.
My behavior thus moved him, and he noticed that I followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He then changed as well.
We finally had a harmonious family life. He no longer cursed or beat me and stopped having affairs. He supported me doing Dafa work physically and financially.
