[PureInsight.org] I obtained the Fa and started practicing Falun Dafa in March 1995, but my celestial eye had been closed. Occasionally, I would have some sense, or was often given hints for my improvement in my dreams, both directly and indirectly. This was especially so during my period of practice prior to 1999. When my daughter was still young and her celestial eye was open, she was able to see and know some of the situations regarding my practice within other high-level dimensions. Of course, for an ordinary practitioner on the road to Godhood, every little bit of progress and achievement is given by our compassionate, great Master and Falun Dafa. Gods are in the world, doing miraculous things—validating Dafa, clarifying the truth and saving people. I have deep gratitude towards Master for His boundless compassion.
1. The first time I saw Falun
I had been practicing for a while, and one day took my child to her Grandma’s house. At midnight, I was lying on the bed in a half awake state. Suddenly, in my dark celestial eye channel, I saw a colorful Falun rotating. This only lasted for a few seconds, and then the Falun gradually disappeared. I was deeply impressed and never forgot this occurrence. I knew this was encouragement from Master—seeing the Falun as a new practitioner increased my confidence in practicing.
2. “We will always be Master’s Disciples”
During my practice in 1999, my daughter said to me, "Your law body said that we will always be Master’s disciples."
After listening to my daughter, I was happy and surprised. In fact, Master knows everything including everyone’s thoughts. He gave me the answer for what I had always questioned in my heart, and this was also a fundamental problem in my practice. I will always remember this sentence of golden words throughout my life and carry them deep in my heart. For the cultivation conditions of Dafa disciples, Master mentioned in his previous articles that the true Dafa disciples were already in place prior to July 1999. This means that we believe in Master and Dafa in our practice, and have the ability to protect ourselves.
3. Validating the Fa by writing
The CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong, which began in July 1999, is a turning point in our history. In fact, that was the period of transitioning from personal cultivation to Fa-rectification cultivation. Thus the most severe test of people also followed. Although I encountered some small tests and interference, I believed in Master and Fa, and had strong righteous thoughts. This saved me from dangerous situations, and allowed me to walk smoothly to assist Master in validating the Fa on the way to Godhood.
During this period of time, there were some difficult situations. I understood what the true meaning and significance of cultivation was. In 2003, I understood that Master required Dafa disciples to do the three things, especially sending forth righteous thoughts. I sent forth righteous thoughts every day continually. Although my celestial eye was closed, I could really feel the power of sending forth righteous thoughts. The more intense my concentration, the greater the power of sending forth righteous thoughts was. At the end of 2005, I began to visit the websites run by overseas Dafa disciples, and I wrote experience sharing articles for those websites, which I still do to this day. These articles have a very good effect in validating Dafa and clarifying the truth. At the same time, they help me improve in my practice and correct my thinking.
I still remember two dreams, in particular, about writing that inspired and encouraged me, and that are worth sharing. A short period of time after I started writing, I had a dream where the number “909” appeared. I woke up and knew what this meant. I only hoped my pen would not stop working, and I strived to write more than one thousand works. It has been only six years, and I have focused mainly on literary works such as poetry, lyrics, essays, reviews and screenplays. To date, I have written more than one thousand poems, counting those that have been or are about to be published. However, all these small achievements were given to me by great, compassionate Teacher. The wisdom of Dafa gave me endless inspiration and ideas to better validate the Fa, clarify the truth, and save more sentient beings.
In another dream, Dafa disciples wrote all kinds of articles, enough to establish a museum. I was in the dream and was part of the crowd of people who were viewing these great and enduring classic works. They were really dazzling and fruitful, like heroes or monuments standing for the future and history of the universe. They were like a valuable asset that had assisted Teacher to validate the Fa–a demonstration of this great Fa-rectification period, “worth more than millions of pieces of gold.” The Dafa disciples became Master’s first lives of the new universe with a feeling of supreme glory and pride.
4. “You are the Creator”
In fact, cultivation practice is the process of getting rid of attachments until they are gone and there are no gaps; then you can reach consummation. Although I have been practicing for more than sixteen years, the universe has reached the final moments of the Fa-rectification period. During Fa-rectification cultivation, all will be reflected at the most superficial level of ordinary people. It seems some parts of me that I thought had been cultivated well before have resurfaced.
This process repeats itself in order to get rid of attachments. It should be said that most practitioners will encounter this. I have the same situation. I thought I had been practicing for many years, with most of my attachments removed, but it wasn’t the case. When you encounter a big or small matter, is your heart really on the Fa and not affected? This can test your heart and determine whether you have passed the test and are qualified. I remember at the end of 2009, my work unit had been carrying out the annual performance evaluations. I became entangled and affected in my heart. I was ashamed. When I calmed down, I often asked myself, “Yes, how does a cultivator become entangled in the matters of ordinary people?” It was because I did not completely let go of everything. However, this is not unusual for a cultivator to realize. When I slept that night, I had a very clear dream that revealed the true situation. In the dream, our great Master appeared in front of me and said, “You are the creator.” Then the dream was over and I woke up. My excitement was beyond words, thanks again to our great, compassionate Teacher. Once again my mind had been opened. In fact, my main consciousness usually knows the principle of not competing with ordinary people. The dream revealed what was at the heart of this long lingering issue that had made Master worry about me. I always regret this in my heart. However, from another perspective, when I encounter these things in ordinary society, isn’t it for me to get rid of this heart? Yes, anyone with an ordinary person’s heart will not enter the kingdom of heaven. This means that what ordinary people want, we, as practitioners, do not want. What ordinary people have, we do not want to fight for or be envious of. What we have, ordinary people cannot get, even though they want to. What we obtain, through solid Fa study, cultivation of the mind, the exercises, and the three things required by the Master, is inseparable. “Cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master” (Zhuan Falun). Always conform to normal society and do things without pursuit.
While practicing Falun Dafa in this final stage of the Fa-rectification, I will follow Master's earnest teachings to do the three things and follow the road of the Great God of the Fa-rectification. I will fulfill my oath and grand wish, and follow Master towards consummation!
These are only my own cultivation experiences and understandings. Please correct anything inappropriate. Thank you. Heshi.
