Greetings, revered Master!
Greetings, fellow practitioners.
Recently, I found out about an invitation to submit experience-sharing articles for the Zhengjian website’s 20th anniversary. I was inspired. If one’s article were not published, would one still keep going? If one does not feel anything when cultivating, would one persist? Fellow practitioners’ thoughts on studying the Fa were particularly good. I would like to report to Master and share my understandings with fellow practitioners.
I obtained the Fa in 2005. Before I found Dafa, I took medicine every day and was hospitalized annually. My health was like this for decades. I suffered from heart disease, high blood pressure, dizziness, and other diseases for over 30 years, so I kept searching for medical treatment. A friend who practiced Falun Gong came to my house and said, "I always smell traditional Chinese medicine at your place. Do you want to try practicing Falun Gong? My illnesses disappeared after I practiced Falun Gong. Why are you so stubborn?" I thought, "Yes! If your diseases were cured, why should I not practice? I should try it too!” I read the main book Zhuan Falun every day whenever I could. I kept saying, "This is a wonderful book! Extremely wonderful!” Over the past 16 years, I have stuck to this precious book.
Dafa opened up memories of my previous life and curbed my human obsessions. Master said in Zhuan Falun, “Once you upgrade your xinxing, your body will undergo a great change. Upon xinxing improvement, the matter in your body is guaranteed to transform. What kind of changes will take place? You will give up those bad things that you are attached to.”
Putting My Understanding of the Fa into Action
At the beginning of cultivation, I cleared out the environment at home. Over 50 cartons of various books, photos, and souvenirs of the evil communist party were burned, thrown away, or hauled away. In light of the principle “no second cultivation way,” I eliminated all books and materials from other cultivation ways. Finally, I threw away all my medicines. By doing so, I cleared out my attachments.
As a result, I improved my xinxing and felt light-hearted indeed. However, this was only possible with Master’s compassion. Otherwise, I might have been in big trouble. Master said in Zhuan Falun, “If you are a true practitioner, our Falun will safeguard you. I am rooted in the universe. If anyone can harm you, he or she would be able to harm me. Put simply, that person would be able to harm this universe.”
Paying off Karma from the Past
Master said in Zhuan Falun, “What is owed must be paid for.” I remembered that I had two outstanding debts. One was from thirty-one years ago and the other from five years ago. With the passage of time, I could not remember the correct amount of the debt. One night in June 2016, I offered Master incense, knelt in front of his image, and asked him to enlighten me.
I said to Master’s statue, “I forgot whether my debt was 1,000 yuan or 2,000 yuan.” In less than half a minute, 1,000 yuan appeared in my mind. I was really touched by Dafa’s miracle. That night, I wrapped up 1,000 yuan along with an amulet and truth pamphlet. The next morning, my spouse and I drove 30 miles to my old classmate's house to return the money. In the midst of our conversation, he reminded me, "You still owe me 1,000 yuan." I was surprised and did not say a word! I thought to myself, “He never forgot about the 1,000 yuan! Good thing I came today! Is this not what Master had planned? Also, I could take this opportunity to clarify the truth.”
I said to him, “I came to your house to pay off my debt. I would like to share good news with you. After I took up Falun Gong, my illness was cured, which allowed me to visit you today. Falun Gong is wonderful and guides people to maintain good moral character. The self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square was staged by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Such fake news was employed to frame Falun Gong. Please do not trust it.” He replied to me, “I heard about the truth a while ago.” Then he agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations and accepted the amulet and truth pamphlets. I asked him to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Zhen-Shan-Ren is good.” Finally, he accepted the 1,000 yuan I owed him with my apology. He felt touched by my deeds.
We also paid off another debt of 1,000 yuan in 2016. One day a call came in saying, "Auntie, you still owe me 1,000 yuan for the product." I was annoyed when I heard this because I did not support my husband in taking these things. I said, "It has been a few years, so why have I not heard you say anything about it? You sell healthcare products to cheat people and earn money." She said, "Auntie, I did not deceive you. Over the past few years as my family experienced financial difficulty, I went to Xinjiang to work. Otherwise, I may not have requested you to pay off the debt you owed me." Actually, she spoke to me in a sincere and kind manner. My husband fell ill and had difficulty moving, so I was in charge of the finances. I could certainly help her pay off her debt. The creditor may also have some predestined connections with Dafa.
On that day, I took a taxi to meet with the creditor. I told the driver what I was doing. He felt surprised and said, “In this age, you are such a good person.” I told him, “I am a Falun Gong practitioner. Yes, we are of good moral character as we practice Zhen-Shan-Ren. As you are driving every day, it is particularly crucial for you to ensure your safety.” Then he agreed to renounce the Youth League and Young Pioneers. Before I got off his taxi, I asked him to keep in mind the auspicious nine-character phrase. He charged me only five yuan and said, “If you have to travel further, I can give you a lift free of charge.”
When the creditor saw me, she delightfully said, “Thanks for coming to pay off your debt. You are invited to have lunch with me.” When I clarified the truth to her, she agreed to renounce the CCP. I realized that as long as we put our heart into the Fa, Master will always look after us, and Dafa’s magnificence will manifest.
Please kindly point out anything that is not aligned with the Fa.
