Elderly Practitioners Cannot Relax in Cultivation!

PureInsight | December 8, 2014

[PureInsight.org] I am a seventy-seven-year-old elderly practitioner who attained the Fa in 1995. At five o'clock in the morning of June 3, 2013, I got up to use the bathroom but fell under the bed with a "bang". I did not pay much attention to it at that moment. When I moved my body to the toilet to use the bathroom, I found that the right side of my body was numb, and I was not able to walk. After seeing it, my husband said, "Why don't you say 'Falun Dafa Is Great?’" Master was reminding me through the mouth of an ordinary person. I said "Falun Dafa Is Great" in my mind and moved my body to a two-person sofa and sat down to send forth righteous thoughts. After sending forth righteous thoughts, I fell asleep on the sofa. It was nine thirty when I heard someone knocking on the door. I struggled to open the door. It was fellow practitioner A. These words came out of my mouth, "Master let you come, right?" She said that she came to talk to me about something. I asked her what it was. She asked, "What happened to you?" I told her about what had happened this morning. She helped me turn on an MP3 and let me listen to the Fa. She got me some water to wash my mouth and face. She then brought two buns and a cup of water to me. I asked her help me take the day off from the Fa-study group, and she agreed.

At noon, practitioner A came in and asked if I had eaten. I said I didn’t want to eat and felt sad that I couldn't walk. I told her that my family members wanted me to go to the hospital, but I didn’t want to go and wanted to throw up. She said, “It’s ok. It’s all an illusion. Don’t acknowledge it and instead eliminate it. If you want to throw up, I will go to the toilet with you.” I threw up on the whole floor even before I reached the bathroom. After throwing up, she helped me sit on the couch and cleaned what I threw up. My husband (he is over eighty years old) was moved and said, “Your fellow practitioners is so nice.” After cleaning up, fellow practitioner A sat down and said, “Let’s send forth righteous thoughts together.”

After two o’clock in the afternoon, all members of the Fa-study group came to visit me. They sent forth righteous thoughts, studied the Fa, shared experience, and looked within with me. A lot of human attachments were found: sentimentality, selfishness, attachment to competition, attachment to showing off, jealousy, etc. While in the positive energy field, I felt comfortable as if nothing was wrong. After the fellow practitioners left, I was mentally depressed again. At seven o’clock in the evening, fellow practitioner A brought a bowl of soup for me. She told me to study the Fa, listen to Master’s lectures, and send forth righteous thoughts more often.

After Looking Within, I Could Walk Again!

Early the next morning, fellow practitioner A came to my home to do the exercises with me and corrected my movements for the five exercises. Fellow practitioner A said, “We are one body. Your problem is my problem. Don’t let the evil take advantage of our loopholes. Let’s correct ourselves according to the Fa. Do you remember seventeen years ago when you were meditating among pine trees in the park, you waved to me to learn the exercises? I meditated for half an hour and then left for work. That night I slept until late the next morning, and the insomnia that I had for many years was gone. I entered Dafa cultivation ever since. Our predestined relationship is not ordinary.”

After doing the exercises, fellow practitioner A said that she told some fellow practitioners to come to my home to study the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts, and have a discussion with me. While she was talking, six or seven people started walking in one after the next. Some fellow practitioners lived very far away, but they still came to help me send forth righteous thoughts. They discussed their personal experiences of doing the three things well according to principles of the Fa and the degree to which they believed in Master and the Fa. They inspired me to look within. On February 28, 2013, I asked the chicken seller to kill a chicken, and I treated it with a careless attitude. I was doing so poorly in believing in Master and the Fa. In addition to that, I did not do the three things well, so the old forces and evil beings were taking advantage of my loopholes. Cultivation is very serious. I apologized to Master, “I did something wrong. I will definitely do better in the future. I will be strict with myself with the Fa principles and a cultivator’s standards and do the three things well so I do not let down Master’s salvation.”

Fellow practitioners suggested that I study the Fa more often, study the Fa well, send forth righteous thoughts more often, change my human notions, cultivate the thoughts of a divine being, strengthen my main consciousness, and check myself on all aspects using the requirements and standards of the Fa. At this time, someone knocked on the door. Another practitioner and I got up together to open the door. All other fellow practitioners said together, “You can walk now. What a miracle! It’s a good thing.” The fellow practitioner who just walked in asked what the good thing was. I said that I could walk. Thank you Master! Thank you Master! Thank you Master! I could not use words to describe how happy I was.

Come out to Do the Three Things Well

During the two days when I studied the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts, and did the exercises with everyone, I improved my understanding of the Fa principles. I went to study the Fa with the study group a week later. A fellow practitioner was excited and called her mom to come sit next to me. She told her that half my body couldn’t move, but that I recovered within a week, so isn’t Dafa magical and extraordinary? The old lady who was 94 years old looked at me and smiled, “Falun Dafa is great!”

After ten days, I took the bus to the evil black jails where the prisons were to send forth righteous thoughts close by. I received support all throughout from fellow practitioners who reminded me to be safe (with regards to my body) and sent forth righteous thoughts for me. They encouraged me to go out to clarify the truth, save people, and convince people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Once not long ago, after I finished sending forth righteous thoughts at the province prison for women, a lady called my name at the bus station. I looked at her with curiosity. She said, “You don’t even remember me?” Then she continued, “I recognized you once you walked here. You still look the same. Nothing has changed. You look spirited and young. We were transferred to do work at the grass-roots level in 1968. In those forty years, I have become so old that you don’t even recognize me.” I said, “You (she was appointed to Nanchang People’s Bank after she graduated from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics) were so popular and pretty when you were in Shanghai. Now you look completely different (face full of freckles), so I did not recognize you. My health used to be bad, and you know that. It got better because I later cultivated ‘Falun Gong’ and was blessed.” Then I told her about the beauty of Falun Dafa that is shown through my body and mind.

During the conversation, I found out that she was a member of the Party, so I told her about the “Heavens eliminating the CCP; quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations for safety” and asked whether she had quit. She said with anger, “In the past, they kept saying to listen to the Party and follow the Party, but in the end I couldn’t even go back to my hometown (Shanghai) and kept wandering around in other places. Now I don’t believe in anything and won’t do anything.” I said, “I’m not asking you to do anything. It is for your own good. In your heart, erase and do not recognize the poisonous vow that you made when joining the party. We are descendants of the Yan and Yellow Emperors and the Chinese, not Marx or Lenin. The CCP has killed over 80 million Chinese people throughout different movements. Its crime is tremendous. Now I’m telling you to quit the party, the youth league, and the young pioneer and completely separate from the party. Otherwise, you will become the grave goods of the party.” She thought about it and asked me how to quit. I said that using a real name, nickname, or pseudonym were all acceptable. “After today when you quit the organizations of the evil party, you will no longer belong to it anymore; you will be reborn.” She asked me about her husband because he was also a party member but had passed away over a year ago. I said I would help both of them quit and asked her what names to use. She said, “Just use our real names. Help both of us quit. I’m causing you trouble. Thank you.” I said, “Please remember the nine words ‘Falun Dafa Is Great. Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance Is Great.’” She repeated the nine words and said she would remember. At this time, the bus came. She went on the bus and left. My eyes followed her, and I thought to myself that a life has been saved. Master has arranged everything. He led her to come to me, encouraged me, and let me help her. This is an example of Master’s benevolent care for disciples. Only by using our time well and doing well the three things that Master told us to do can we really meet Master’s expectations.

I was able to go out to distribute materials every day a few years ago. Master said the closer we approach the end, the more diligent we should be! However, I became lazier as I was getting older! Because of sentimentality, I even killed a chicken to improve the health of my grandson’s wife. Master arranged fellow practitioners to help me selflessly and correct me! I wrote this article in order to carefully summarize the issues I have and remind myself to be more diligent. Here I also remind elderly practitioners to not relax on cultivation!

Fellow practitioners, please kindly point out anything that is inappropriate.
