[PureInsight.org] One day in mid-March this year, I got confused that a neighbor came to my house. He never visited us because we had violent conflicts in the past few years. It turned out that their family was going to hold a happy event, so he wanted to invite my husband to write a ‘bill’ for the event – that is a tradition to record accurately the cash amount donated by each guest and each donor’s name.
My husband said, “I almost forgot how to write the Chinese characters.” My neighbor insisted, “Both of you are educated. Please get this completed.” My husband could not undertake this task, so I had to work on this. As my neighbor and my family had conflicts before, and if I refused to help him, he might be unpleasant. I am in my seventies. Will I be able to help him? Generally, people who hold banquets and write accounts are of high social-ranking. The person who collected money is in his thirties. It looked a bit funny when I worked with him. I did not know how to handle it properly.
I should agree to do this because I am a Dafa practitioner. However, my state of cultivation was not good; interference from other dimensions was severe. I felt dizzy as I had not slept for two nights. Meanwhile, I suffered tinnitus. It was a bit hard to write the account, I was afraid that I might make some mistakes.
Master taught us in Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions, Hong Yin II,
“A Great Enlightened One fears no hardship
Having forged an adamantine will
Free of attachment to living or dying
He walks the path of Fa-rectification confident and poised”
In addition, Master said in Zhuan Falun, “When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: ‘After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!’" Therefore, I asked Master to help me in my mind, “Master, I’m not after personal fame or interest. I just want to accommodate Dafa and to accommodate ordinary people. Please allow me to sleep for two hours, so that my brain will be relieved.” As a result, I really slept for two hours. When I woke up, I became clear-headed.
I sat calmly at the tent table, and cooperated well with the young man. In about two hours, I handed over the 30,000 yuan bill to my neighbor accurately. At that time, someone said, “After attending banquet for so many years, I have never seen women especially an old lady writing the bills.” My neighbor was very satisfied, and I felt very comfortable. This little task was not a great deal for others, but it was not easy for me to undertake.
My neighbor gave me two boxes of cigarettes. I said no, and I repeatedly refused and I returned them to the owner. In the evening, my neighbor asked someone to bring me a bag of rice. We asked them to take it back. They said, “Simply take this for granted.” After they left, I discussed with my family what to do with the rice. I converted the rice into money, along with my another share of money that was not spent, which totaled 200 Yuan. Then I contributed this amount of money to truth-clarification leaflets production site.
Though the completed task seemed to be a minor issue, the resentment between my neighbor and I had been resolved. I feel thankful for Master!
The Fa-rectification period is coming to an end. It is time for me to submit an answer sheet and share my thoughts with fellow practitioners.
