Falun Dafa Unlocked My Wisdom
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in November 1998 and have benefited physically and mentally. My cultivation process, however, was very bumpy. Without Master's help, I could not have made it through.
I worked in a government compound, holding different leadership positions, and so was deeply poisoned by the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) culture. I knew Dafa was good but was unable to be diligent under the CCP's influence. On my cultivation path, I fell many times and almost lost my life.
In 2004, I was illegally detained in a forced labor camp in the provincial capital for two years. When I returned to my original work unit in 2006, my official position was gone and my salary was cut to a small living allowance.
I continued to study the Fa and correct myself to meet the Dafa's requirements. I understood a Dafa practitioner's responsibilities and future glory. I did not let those acquired human concepts hinder me and felt that my cultivation had improved greatly. I wholeheartedly assisted Master to rectify the Fa and deeply clarified the truth to people.
I would like to share some of my experiences with Master and fellow practitioners.
Master Unlocks My Wisdom
After returning to my work unit, I diligently practiced Dafa and eliminated many human notions and attachments. My supervisor saw that I put a lot of effort into my work and assigned me an important position again. I was given a computer, a typist, and an assistant. I was almost 50 and thought it was no use learning to use a computer or typewriter. Rather, I preferred to study the Fa more and tell more people about Dafa. Since then, I have clarified the truth widely and convinced people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
At first, information materials about Falun Dafa were entirely supplied by a practitioner from another county. However, the distance, transport time, and safety issues usually resulted in an inconsistent supply. I thought about how great it would be if I could produce the materials myself. Seeing that thought, esteemed Master resolved all my difficulties.
One day, my husband's company gave him a bonus of 40,000 yuan. He spent over 5,000 yuan on a good laptop for me. I was both surprised and happy.
A fellow practitioner from my city who knew a little about computers and printers came to visit me, and another practitioner who lived far away and whom I had not met before also came to my home unexpectedly. They taught me how to use the Minghui website to download and print materials. Thus, I came to have a print shop in my home.
After successfully installing the computer and printer, the technically knowledgeable practitioners left, leaving me to solve a series of problems by myself.
The environment in China was very dangerous for practitioners, so I produced informative pamphlets myself. A lot of times I dared not even take the printer to a shop for repairs when it stopped working. When calling a technician to my home, I worried about revealing that I was a Falun Gong practitioner, so I didn't leave my cell phone number. Sometimes, when I bought supplies, I was afraid I would be seen by acquaintances. I was so anxious! Then I calmed down and studied the Fa.
“When you really cultivate on a true path nobody will dare to just go and give you trouble, and what’s more, you have my Law Bodies protecting you, so you won’t run into any danger. (The Third Talk, Zhuan Falun)
“Our Law Wheel protects you if you’re a true cultivator. My roots are all deeply planted in the universe, and if someone could affect you, he could affect me, and to put it directly, he’d be able to affect the universe.” (The First Talk,Zhuan Falun)
After reading Master's Fa, I felt that my fear was suddenly gone. Yes, I am a holy Dafa disciple and am doing the most sacred work with Master's protection at all times, so what is there to be afraid of? Since then, I have told people the facts about Dafa with righteous thoughts and actions in a dignified manner.
If the printer or computer needed updating, I went to the mall to buy the item. If the machine had problems, I took it out to have it fixed. Sometimes I asked people to come to my home to do repairs. I told the shop owner and repair person about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I also helped them quit the CCP, but I never exposed that I was the printer's owner. I also maintained and purchased supplies for another practitioner's equipment.
One miraculous thing was that, from 2006 to the present, I have never run into an acquaintance when I go out to get the printer repaired or to buy supplies. Master blocked any chance of my activities being exposed.
During those years, Master opened my wisdom so I could quickly learn how to print and bind a small volume of brochures, and how to make posters, banners, and display boards. I taught myself to proofread, clean the printer, color blend, burn CDs, print stickers, print on paper currency, make keepsakes, produce Dafa scriptures, as well as other techniques. I also helped people in a nearby city and bordering counties quit the CCP.
In this small city of fewer than 400,000 people, fellow practitioners and I were able to ensure that people could see Dafa banners and pendants at all times. Many people would read the words: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” We hung the banners with those words high above sidewalks on both sides of the main road during the Chinese New Year festival, and they are still intact to this day. Our self-adhesive posters about Dafa often stayed up for a year without any damage.
I knew in my heart that all I had done was accomplished by Master. I am in my fifties. Without any knowledge of computers or training, what could I have done without Dafa?
I remember when my husband suddenly opened the door to my room one day when I was pasting labels onto Shen Yun discs. He was stunned. “You’re so clever, and you've done this all by yourself. I thought it came from elsewhere. This is great! From now on, no one is allowed to enter your room,” he said.
I was touched by how protective he was and how Master helped me be extraordinary when doing Dafa work. As long as we cultivate well while assisting Master to rectify the Fa, we will be admired by everyday people.
Pay Attention to Safety and Cherish Master's Great Efforts
To clarify the truth and save sentient beings is what Master wants us to do. We are cultivating amid a terrible persecution, not suffering in persecution. Master often tells us to pay attention to safety, so we have to listen and cannot always go our own way. In order to cherish Master's great efforts and not have Master worry about his students' safety, I stopped using a mobile phone.
On this issue, Master said:
“There isn't much to talk about here. You are carrying a listening device on you. Besides spies and governments, anyone is able to monitor you at will, and it's very simple.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference,” Team Blue Translation)
I have not used a mobile phone for five years. My husband did not understand at the beginning and broke his two cell phones. However, in order to keep my workshop safe, I have almost severed contact with fellow practitioners, enduring pressure from family members and fellow practitioners' misunderstandings of my decision. I knew the weight I carried and that I must do well.
In spite of this, I still became the target of surveillance. In 2017, many practitioners in our city were illegally arrested for suing Jiang Zemin, the former CCP leader, for ordering the persecution of Dafa. The authorities threatened to put me in a brainwashing class, and for this purpose, they questioned another practitioner about my activities.
To protect me, that practitioner said he did all of the things they questioned him about. In the end, they let him go. However, those who betrayed fellow practitioners became long-term targets of harassment and monitoring; some even gave up cultivation.
The authorities could not find my whereabouts, didn't know where to look and had to give up their plan to monitor me. I know all these things were in the care of merciful Master.
For more than 12 years, I have not slacked off, and I have carefully followed Master's Fa-rectification. I have only worked with one practitioner. Most of the time, I acted alone. I have handed out more than 10,000 booklets of all kinds and delivered more than 3,000 copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to homes. From time to time, I handed out truth-clarification letters, calendars, and so on. We sent out Falun Dafa information booklets to law enforcement compounds in the hope that Master's great compassion would awaken the lost sentient beings working there.
My workshop runs well to this day. I want to completely cherish this honor given to me by Master so I can do better in the final Fa-rectification period and save more people with diligent cultivation.
