China Fahui | Harmonize with Master's Wishes
(Minghui.org) Greetings, Revered Master! Greetings, Fellow Practitioners!
I would like to report to Master and share with practitioners on how I have followed Master's teachings on my cultivation path.
Creating a Good Cultivation Environment at Home
We were a family of cultivators until the persecution began in 1999. I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997, when I was 28. My parents and my wife started to practice a year later. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, they quit practicing out of fear.
I traveled to Beijing twice to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa in 1999 and was illegally arrested, beaten and fined. My parents and wife almost had nervous breakdowns.
My wife did everything she could to keep me from practicing, but Falun Dafa was already deeply rooted in my heart. Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, must have seen my righteous thoughts and helped me break through the obstacles at home. I was able to practice openly at home a year later.
Nevertheless, I was not satisfied with my cultivation environment at home. Master said in Zhuan Falun,
“Today we have made public to you this great practice. I have already delivered it to your doorstep. It is up to you whether you can practice cultivation and make it. If you can do it, you may continue your cultivation. If you cannot do it or cannot practice cultivation, from now on you can forget about practicing cultivation. Except for demons that will deceive you, nobody else will teach you, and in the future you will not be able to practice cultivation. If I cannot save you, nobody else can. As a matter of fact, finding a true master from an orthodox Fa to teach you is harder than climbing to heaven. There is nobody at all who cares. In the Dharma-ending Period, even very high levels are also in the End of Havoc. Nobody is taking care of everyday people.”
My parents and wife practiced before, and I felt if they stopped, they would forever lose the opportunity to cultivate. It would be so sad for them, so I decided to encourage them to keep practicing.
I tried to convince my wife, but she was very much against it and said that being a kind person was good enough. I was not discouraged, because I knew she was talking to people about Falun Dafa. I suggested she read Zhuan Falun, but she refused.
Many years went by, and I asked her one day, “You used to be good at meditating. Can you still cross your legs in the full lotus position?” She said she could and crossed her legs to show me. I asked, “What if we do the sitting meditation and see how long you can sit with your legs crossed?” She meditated for 30 minutes that day.
I then suggested she read Zhuan Falun. She read it twice. With the help of other practitioners, she resumed practicing in 2009. When practitioners who have been persecuted started filing suits against Jiang Zemin for initiating the suppression, my wife conquered her fear and submitted her complaint against Jiang to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Procuratorate. Both courts accepted her letter.
Guiding My Daughters on Their Cultivation Paths
I have two daughters. My wife brought my older daughter to visit me at the police station in the winter of 1999. She was only 18 months old at the time. Looking at her cute little sleepy face, I made a promise to myself that I would raise her well so she could learn the wonders of Dafa.
I taught her to read Zhuan Falun and recite the poems in Hong Yin when she was three. She learned the exercises when she was eight. She talked to people about Falun Dafa and encouraged them to renounce the Chinese Communist Party when she was in junior high school.
She went through a test of sickness karma when she was 15 and ran a high fever. In the past, she would take medication when she had sickness karma. This time, I said to her kindly, “Although you are young, you have been practicing for many years. You should know by now that genuine cultivators do not get sick. The fever comes from Master eliminating your karma, and it is a good thing. As long as you raise your xinxing level, then you'll be able to pass the test. But no one can force you to do what you don't want to do.”
She didn't take any medication this time and was fine four days later. She has been able to handle every test of sickness karma since then.
When practitioners began suing Jiang this May, she spent 6 days writing complaint letters against Jiang. She insisted that I sent the letters for her. I edited the letters and sent them to the two courts. Both were accepted.
My younger daughter is 10 years old now. I whispered to her “Falun Dafa is good” when my wife was pregnant with her. I also taught her to read Zhuan Falun and recite the poems in Hong Yin when she was three. She had a big breakthrough in the test of sickness karma at the age of seven.
She had a case of mumps and fever. In the past, she also took medication when she had sickness karma. (I think it had a lot to do with my cultivation level, because I could not let go of human notions). I was resolute this time and told her, “Master is eliminating karma for you, so it is not a serious illness. As long as you raise your xinxing level, the black substance will come out, and you'll be fine.”
She nodded but still cried. She recuperated five days later and did not miss school even though she did not take any medications.
Almost everyone in her class had mumps. Many of them had IV therapy and missed days of school. My younger daughter has passed other tests of sickness karma with ease since then. Dafa is truly extraordinary!
Although she is young, she is already doing the three things and talks to people about Falun Dafa and encourages them to quit the Party. Many of her classmates and friends have quit the Young Pioneers.
My younger daughter stuck a “Lawsuits Being Filed against Jiang Zemin” flyer on an electric pole few days ago. Later, a group of people gathered around the flyer and discussed it. She was very cautious and waited until the majority of them left. She then talked to an old lady about the lawsuit and how the Communist regime persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners. She encouraged her to renounce the Party. The old lady agreed. My daughter also suggested she recite, “Falun Dafa is good,” and the old lady said she loved hearing my daughter talk.
Master told us that children born into practitioners' families are here on a mission. We won't be able to guide them well if we do not cultivate well ourselves.
My parents eventually resumed practicing. Although they have not stepped forward to talk to people about Falun Dafa, they are at least very supportive of the practice. Because of their support, I can fully assist Master in Fa-rectification.
Establishing a Falun Dafa Information Production Site at Home
Because of the good cultivation environment at home, I made it into a Falun Dafa informational material production site. My family fully supports it and provides great help. Other practitioners and I have made booklets about Falun Dafa, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, Falun Dafa desk calendars, and Shen Yun DVDs. To lessen the burden on practitioners who do the printing, practitioners in our village took over the tasks of paper cutting, paper spreading, and material preparation.
I set high standards for our production site and remind myself that it cannot replace self-cultivation. I make sure I study the Fa well, send forth righteous thoughts, and do everything earnestly. When I make Shen Yun DVDs, I check them afterward and fix any mistake right away. When I print the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, I make sure the print is clear and legible, so that every piece of material is effective in saving sentient beings.
The process of making informational material reflects my cultivation state and helps raise my xinxing level. I was once attached to the cultivation state of two practitioners and could not let go of it. As a result, the printer kept making mistakes. I looked inward and identified my attachments.
When I had problems visiting the Minghui website, I quickly looked inward to find my attachments. And as soon as I thought of doing it, the Minghui webpage I was searching for suddenly appeared.
When I got upset because a practitioner's word or action was not based on the Fa, bubbles would form in the printer ink cartridges. It reminded me to quickly eliminate the attachments that I had.
One time my daughter and I made sticky posters, and I complained about her work. I looked inward later and noticed the reason she did not roll the paper properly was because I did not stretch the paper thoroughly. After correcting my mistake, she was able to roll the paper nice and fast.
Cooperating Well to File Lawsuits Against Jiang
When I saw the notice to sue Jiang Zemin on the Minghui website and from the Falun Dafa Association, I was nervous and excited. I realized Master had pushed the Fa-rectification process further. I immediately shared the news with other practitioners.
On May 13, World Falun Dafa Day, practitioners in the nearby city and our village got together to discuss the lawsuit. We realized Master was giving us an opportunity to raise our levels and to save people. We wanted to harmonize with Master's wish, and file complaint letters against Jiang for initiating the persecution. I had more confidence after reading “Fa Teaching Given at the 2015 New York Fa Conference.”
We took the matter into our own hands. Thanks to practitioners in the nearby city, we assisted the elderly practitioners to write and send complaint letters. We encouraged each other, strengthened our righteous thoughts, and did it openly and with dignity.
One post office refused to deliver the complaint letters, so two practitioners went there to explain the reason for the lawsuit, and we helped by sending forth righteous thoughts. The clerks changed their attitudes and helped us send the letters. The father of the post office head was also there, and he agreed to renounce the Party after talking to the practitioners.
The process of filing lawsuits was hectic but not chaotic. Once the lawsuit letters were accepted by the two courts, we posted the information on the Minghui website. We shared with practitioners who did not want to file lawsuits for fear of exposing themselves. We strengthened their righteous thoughts and helped them eliminate their worries. These practitioners eventually filed their complaints.
We reminded practitioners who had little education what constituted persecution. For example, some of them had burned Dafa books and others wrote statements renouncing their belief when they were persecuted. We thought they should be included in the letters because these were methods used to force us undermine Dafa. It is also an opportunity for us to redeem ourselves.
The officers from the local police station “investigated” several practitioners, including myself, at the beginning of September 2015. They spent less than a minute questioning us. They had us confirm our names, asked if we practiced Falun Dafa, and if we had already sent our letters. They left quickly, and I did not get a chance to talk to them about Dafa. When they drove off, they rolled down the window to wave good-bye.
I realized that no matter how good the police officers' attitude is, it's still a form of harassment since the persecution has not ended. Therefore, practitioners in the nearby city and our village sent letters explaining why we were suing Jiang Zemin to the police station chiefs in the area, hoping they would make the right choice and stop the harassment.
We are currently mass-producing sticky posters about suing Jiang Zemin and informational booklets for distribution, so that more people can learn about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
We will be more diligent, look inward, and do the three things well. We want to follow Master's Fa-rectification, cultivate as well as when we first started, and go home with Master.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
