A New York Trip: Meeting a Predestined Person at Union Square

A Falun Dafa Practitioner in N

PureInsight | October 18, 2004

[PureInsight.net] During a weekend in September, I had the opportunity to go to New York with other practitioners. At midday on Sunday, I went to lunch with a western practitioner. As we finished lunch, a lady saw us and excitedly told us: "Thank you for letting everyone know about Falun Gong." She showed us a number of copies of truth-clarification newspapers. She told us that she would send a copy to each of her relatives in Peru.

After that, she told us about a dream she had about two weeks ago. In the dream, her niece was ill and needed to learn five sets of exercises. She could not understand what it was about. What were the "five sets of exercises"? On the next day, she called her niece and asked here if she were ill. Her niece said that she was indeed ill - seriously ill. She asked her niece to explain what the five sets of exercises meant. Her niece said that she did not know. After a few days, she arrived in New York. As she walked along 42nd Street, she met a Falun Gong practitioner who could not speak English. The Falun Gong practitioner gave her a Falun Dafa newspaper and said using the few English words she knew: "Five sets of exercises." This lady was amazed and delighted, amazed because a miracle had just happened, delighted because she had finally found the five sets of exercises. At this juncture, she kept repeating to us: "I have found it! I have found it!"

She told us another story as well. Because she was very excited in telling her story, we too became excited. We cannot remember whether the two stories were from the same dream or from separate dreams. Her second story involved a Chinese child. The child asked if he could paint a picture on her dress. She thought that since he was only a child, she would let him paint. The child used different colors, purple, blue and yellow, and drew three lines along her body. When she carefully looked at what he had painted, she found that they were three Chinese words. It was a pity that she did not know Chinese and could not read what was written.

After listening to her amazing stories, the westerner practitioner and I opened our eyes. If we had not heard the stories first hand, it would have been very difficult for us to believe it. She told us that she was from a very small and poor village in Peru. She said that if she could learn the five sets of exercises, she would return to her village and instruct everyone there about Falun Gong. Then, as I taught her the five sets of exercises, her great joy touched my heart. It was inevitable that I had to ask myself: as a Falun Dafa practitioner, was I as excited as she was when I first obtained the Fa? Compared to her, I felt very ashamed.

During the same evening, as I was on the plane flying back home, her face kept appearing in my mind as strongly as the dreams she told us. Although this was the first occasion I visited New York to participate in Falun Dafa activities, I felt that under Master's careful guidance, I was returning from an extremely rewarding journey.
