[PureInsight.org] This is a story from heaven. An immortal boy held a beautiful potted flower to send to Yao Chi (abode of immortals where the Western Empress Mother lives.) By accident one flower petal fell off. This flower petal fell quickly and went down into the human world. The boy regretted it and blamed himself for that. He wanted to catch the flower petal, but it fell so fast that it got lost without any trace. The boy followed the flower petal down and came to the human world.
In this huge boundless crowd and through cycles of reincarnations, how could he begin to find the flower petal? Day after day, the time flew by, and it has been ten thousand years since he began the search. Each time the boy was reincarnated in the human world, he begged to become a gardener. In this current life, after going through a hard life, the boy has become an old man full of gray hair. He still works very hard from early morning to late night. But it was different this time. The old man obtained Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) in his late years. He was on the way to return to his original true self.
It was July 7th again. As usual, the old man put the most beautiful flower on the windowsill. He smelled the refreshing fragrance and he suddenly heard a sound. That was the sound of heartbeat! The sound was so clear, familiar and heart wrenching. It was the flower's heartbeat. The old man's heart suddenly stopped. He listened to the sound carefully. He suddenly remembered that it was also July 7th when the flower petal fell from heaven.
This was not any human being's language, but the old man understood it. Their heart was communicating. The flower asked, "When you reach consummation and return to heaven, could you please take me with you…?"
It seems that many Falun Gong practitioners have heard of this story.
