  • Looking Within and Harmonizing With the One Body

    After I went abroad to study, I tried to contact the local practitioners in the area, hoping to join them. At the very beginning, the practitioners did not know me. In addition, I was not diligent in my cultivation, so sometimes I was regarded with suspicion, which was a big blow to me. In the past, I was so glad to meet fellow practitioners, but later I was very sad. My attachment of fear became more obvious. I wanted to explain my situation to these practitioners, but I was afraid that I would not be able to explain it very clearly, so I made the situation worse.
  • Let Go of the Attachment to Sentimentality and Harmonize with the One Body

    Some of my relatives still do not understand and have even refused to listen to the truth aboutFalun Gong. This is because I have not been able to let go of my emotional attachment to them. I anxiously worry about them. After reading Master's articles regarding this attachment, I realized that I considered them as my loved ones and not sentient beings who need to be saved. Now, I always ask myself whether I clarify the truth to them the same way that I clarify the truth to other sentient beings.
  • What I have Seen and Enlightened to during Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts

    At that time, I also saw that in the team that sent forth righteous thoughts, there were practitioners who continuously held Fa instruments with both hands. They joined the team in a dignified manner, and were able to join the Fa-rectification process. The energy field was getting stronger and stronger. The appearances of practitioners changed with the strengthening of the energy field, from their true facial expressions to looking like warriors on four sides.
  • July 6, 2007, an Unforgettable Day

    There are 41 teaching and administrative staff members in my school. Now, half of them have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations and over 30 have accepted Falun Gong truth clarification materials. Over a thousand students have withdrawn from the CCP's youth organizations. About 20 students who will soon go to middle school have said that they will not join the Communist Youth League.
  • Inspired by a Fellow Practitioner

    In the busy season, this practitioner took the time to finish all of his family's farm chores. He then went to work as a laborer. He spent all his income from his labor on saving sentient beings. He made his money doing hard work in the scorching sun day after day and year after year. He also has a family and children. I was deeply impressed by his work ethic and his painstaking efforts.
  • Exchanging Insights on Cultivating Speech, Partiality to Food, and Attachment to Pets

    ...One day her schoolteacher started to pick on her and criticize her repeatedly. Many of her peers also started to criticize her and speak ill of her. When she closed her eyes and pressed her hands on her ears in the classroom, she saw cloud after cloud of white substance, which looked like cotton balls, falling on her head. She immediately thought, "They are giving me good stuff! I will not push it away by losing my temper." That evening she saw a giant Falun rotating in front of her for over ten minutes. She knew it was Teacher trying to encourage her.
  • What I Saw in Beijing on July 20, 1999

    The practitioners remained incredibly calm, even when standing face-to-face with police brandishing automatic machine guns. We maintained impeccable order such as is rarely seen--even in military troops. When we remained quiet, time stood still, and when one practitioner stood up and recited Lunyu, thousands of voices immediately joined in, and it was as if the heavens were listening to us
  • Comprehend the Secret of Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts

    I feel my entire body is filled and enveloped with energy in a very comfortable way when I send righteous thoughts. There are times I feel uplifted afterwards; I feel my body is larger than the Earth, that I am getting rid of evil, participating in getting rid of the evil in New York and feel that heaven and earth have been rectified. Every time I finish, I feel great. Hence, I rarely miss sending righteous thoughts in the evenings and I pay more and more attention to it.
  • Truly Believe in Master and the Fa on Your Cultivation Path

    Cultivation is not child's play. It is a matter more serious than anything else. It is not just for talking about but must be put it into action. You might sound rational when talking about the Fa, but without putting it into action in, you cannot call it cultivation. A true practitioner can let go of the attachments to fame, profit and qing; otherwise, you still are an ordinary person.
  • There is a Realm Called Selflessness

    The young policemen didn't say anything, but from their eyes it could be seen that they seemed to agree with what Aunt said. The atmosphere in the room immediately became relaxed. Some even half-joked, "Aunt, you are really powerful. You could even tell us the truth here!" From the words of the young policeman, it is obvious that he showed respect for Aunt because she could clarify the truth in adversity.
  • Looking Inward to Find Attachments Is Actually Not Difficult

    Actually, looking inward to find one's own shortcomings is not very difficult. As long as you have determination, Teacher will remind you every time. The key is whether you are willing to give up human notions and whether you are willing to truly cultivate yourself. Teacher has silently shouldered so much for us. How can I repay Teacher? How can I lessen Teacher's worries about me? What result does Teacher hope to see?
  • Recognising My Resentment

    Looking back, I was upset because my idea was not implemented and I was too attached to my own understanding and the approval and acceptance of others. My resentment came from my attachment to self, and self-validation. Why did I put so much emphasis on my own understanding and ways of doing things? The way to improve is to let go.
  • Are Our Thoughts and Actions Indeed on the Fa?

    When I knew the evildoers were coming, I told myself, "OK, let them come! I will not hide or escape, I am not afraid of you." I thought my righteous thoughts were strong, but my thoughts were not based on the Fa. The Fa does not require us to resist the persecution the old forces arranged but instead urges us to negate it in the first place.
  • Comments on Illness

    One chapter from the book 'Journey to the West' talks about the illness karma that Tang Seng endured. When Tang Seng was coping with the illness karma, Ba Jie shouted out that he wanted to break away and leave the group. Wu Kong was the one who explained the real cause of the illness, which lay in Tang Seng's past.
  • Our Righteous Thoughts Can Conquer the Old Forces' Attempts

    A practitioner owned two stores in a shopping mall, and many practitioners worked for him at the stores. Their products also provided a lot of convenience to other practitioners. However, the city government was demolishing buildings in many areas, and there were rumours nearly every day that this mall would be demolished. There was a lot of panic over this, and many stores moved out.
