Believing in Master and Dafa, Divine Powers Manifest
(Minghui.org) Before I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, I was plagued with headaches, neurasthenia, gastritis, appendicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, inflammation, arthritis, a uterine tumor, and breast cancer. There were times I needed surgery but my family was too poor to pay for it. My life was miserable and each day seemed like a year.
But just five days after becoming a Falun Gong practitioner, I was free of all my ailments. Two weeks later, I walked so lightly I felt like I was floating on air. For more than 20 years I have followed Master Li Hongzhi closely in Fa-rectification. Although there were obstacles, I also encountered many miraculous things.
I would like to report my experiences to Master Li.
Only Master Controls a Dafa Disciple’s Fate
Xidian Township Police Station officers searched my home on January 18, 2006. They confiscated all my Dafa books and copies of Minghui Weekly. They took me to the station and later to the Guan County Detention Center.
When a female guard interrogated me, she asked where I got the Falun Dafa brochures. I told her I got them on the street. She told me to put my fingerprint on the interrogation record. When I refused, she told me that I could leave if I did and assured me she would keep her word.
I pressed one finger on the paper while saying it was for the words “Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.” Asked to print another digit, I pressed another finger on the paper and said, “This is for ‘Falun Dafa is good.’” She asked me to make an imprint of all five fingers, which I did and said, “This is for going home.” I turned around and told the officers who took me to the detention center, “Let me go now.”
They wouldn't let me leave. I said to the guard, “You just said that I would be allowed to go if I gave my fingerprints. If you don’t let me go, return my fingerprints.” She refused. I said loudly, “Since your words are invalid, so are my fingerprints.”
In the detention center, I did the exercises, sent righteous thoughts, and recited the Falun Dafa teachings every day. One day my daughter visited me and told me that she’s received a notice saying I was going to be taken to Zibo Forced Labor Camp the next day for one year of forced labor. I told her that, if it wasn’t Master’s wish, I would not go anywhere. Angry, my daughter said, “Mom, you are confused. It’s a legal declaration.”
I said, “Whoever sentenced me will be sentenced to the gate of no life. He lives in the Three Realms but I am a life outside the Three Realms. One has to be on an equally high level to be able to sentence me.”
That night I sent righteous thoughts and was determined not to be taken from Guan County. I remembered that Master said, “I am rooted in the universe. If anyone could harm you, he or she would be able to harm me.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun).
My life was given by Master. Master decides everything. As he said, “However strong the righteous thoughts are, that’s how great the power is.” (“Also in a Few Words,” Essentials for Further Advancement II).
I truly felt that Master was by my side that night and felt calm and relaxed. I heard the sound of a wall collapsing in the detention center. I asked if anyone else heard it. No one else heard anything. I knew the sound had come from another dimension. I was sure that I would walk out of there.
I was determined to not leave Guan County and stayed alert at all times. A month later, I was released and my daughter came to pick up me. After returning home, my daughter told me that my name had been sent to Zibo Forced Labor Camp but the female guard had managed to remove it from the list.
She told my daughter, “I don’t want to be held responsible for your mother. I once sent a relative to the forced labor camp. However, I am only letting your mom go because, since she came here, I haven’t been able to sleep, have had a headache, and have felt terribly restless.”
Be a Good Person According to Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance
As a cultivator I am strict about following the principles of Truthfulness, Benevolence, and Forbearance. When a water pipe leaked and flooded the road, I repaved the path. Another time, a neighbor scolded me from her yard. Later she moved to the road to yell at me, then to my front gate. I didn’t say anything back. She continued to do this several times a day for over four months.
One day she said, “Why don’t you respond when I scold you? Why don't you call the police?” I thought that I would not let her scolding affect me. Later, hearing her yell non-stop, I called the police. They took both of us to the local station. She harangued me there the whole day. However, I didn’t want to charge her because she might be punished. When I left the police station, the chief of the station bowed to me three times. All the officers there showed their admiration for me, a Dafa practitioner. After that, they didn't harass my family anymore.
Manifesting Mighty Power in Clarifying the Truth to Save Sentient Beings
I live in the countryside. I follow Master’s requirements to validate Dafa, send righteous thoughts, clarify the truth, and post information about Falun Dafa. During the off-season, I talk with people about Dafa, send informational materials to those who can read, or give MP3 players to those who can't read. Working in the fields, I hang a speaker on a tree and play recorded information about Falun Dafa and the persecution. Many people in my village and nearby villages have heard it and learned the truth this way.
At a gathering in the village I distributed DVDs of the Shen Yun performance. When I handed one to a cadre from the township government, he grabbed my wrist and wouldn't let me go. Others who knew the facts resolved the situation by standing up for me.
A few fellow practitioners and I went to distribute brochures about Falun Dafa in other towns just after New Year’s Day last year. We gave them to everyone we encountered. When they asked where we came from, we told them truthfully without any fear. We did this in 20 or more villages.
Some miraculous things have happened to me since I’ve been a practitioner. While visiting a village to put up posters, I stopped near a utility pole surrounded by a large pile of dirt. I wanted to post information on the pole, so I held onto some dried grass and somehow floated up the pole. After posting the information, I held the same grass and floated back down. How could dried grass support my body that weighs at least 50 kg? It must have been my strong righteous thoughts that helped me put up the poster.
I often went to nearby villages to distribute brochures. When I wanted to avoid people, they left before I got close to them. When I encountered dogs, I sent a thought telling them to not bark. Sure enough, the dogs didn't bark. Sometimes, if a dog started barking, as soon as I thought “Don't bark,” it would stop barking immediately.
Believing in Master and Dafa makes everything possible. When something seemed impossible, it would be done in just a minute. I know everything is done by Master. We just do and say things in this human dimension.
There are many things to talk about when recalling my cultivation experiences over the years. I thank Master for his protection and thank fellow practitioners for their care and help in keeping up with Master’s Fa-rectification.
I’m lucky to be a Dafa disciple and to fulfill my prehistoric vows. This is my supreme glory.
