  • Do We Truly Respect the Fa and Teacher?

    Now everyone in our Fa-study group is strict with themselves. We sit upright, hold up the book with both hands and read the Fa word by word. Even if we are tired, we don't slack off in any of those areas. If our legs hurt, we switch from double-lotus to the single-lotus position. Thinking of how much Teacher has suffered so much for us. How can we be worthy of Teacher's salvation? Everyone has improved through this experience sharing.
  • Reminding Fellow Practitioners Not to Become Apathetic

    When I was cooking dinner, I kept thinking, "For a practitioner, there is nothing accidental. I just had a major repair job done for the bike the week before, why had the screw fallen out? These screws normally never get loose. I need to look within." I then realized that the pedals falling meant that I had made a mis-step. Where was I not solid? Cultivation is very serious and I should cultivate myself solidly
  • With Sentient Beings in Mind, Be a Selfless Practitioner

    Other practitioners wanted to contribute money, but they refused to accept it. Why didn't they take it? The help that the other practitioners were offering was also to save sentient beings and validate Dafa. Practitioners at the materials site, how could you refuse their compassionate assistance? Are we validating Dafa? Or are we validating ourselves? After refusing their assistance, isn't the "difficult situation" self-made?
  • To Assimilate My Life into the Fa

    Only when we assimilate ourselves into the Fa, fulfill our vows, and help Master save sentient beings can we really be deserving of the title "Dafa practitioners of the Fa-rectification period." I don't feel that I do things for Dafa or for fellow practitioners.
  • Wholeheartedly Believing in Teacher Is Fundamental to One's Cultivation

    After returning home, my mum kept up practising the exercises and studying the Fa despite the pain. Gradually, a miracle occurred. While she was doing the sitting exercise, she saw a pair of huge hands move a large dark green boulder from her back. She recovered after that. Now, my mum is healthy again.
  • Eliminating Evil at Its Source

    Hiring a lawyer is a good thing, but we should not depend too heavily on ordinary lawyers, nor on ordinary people's laws. It is Teacher and Dafa that truly protect us. When we do what is righteous, we are under Teacher's protection, and no one can dare to persecute us. The only way to defeat the old force arrangements is to have faith in Teacher and the Fa.
  • Eliminate Selfishness When Validating the Fa

    One day when we were out distributing informational materials and everything was going smoothly, I started to feel a sense of jealousy. As I slipped a flier under a door, the other practitioner immediately removed the flier I had left and replaced it with hers. They were the same fliers, so why would she do such a thing? I wasn't happy about it but didn't say anything. I thought to myself, "I can distribute fliers on my own. I don't need to work with you." I had wanted to be better than her and wanted to validate myself instead of Dafa.
  • Exploding the Perplexities Fostered by Human Notions

    As a cultivator, I should use Fa principles to look at myself. Master said that no one is better than another--we were all lifted from hell by Master at the same time. Amidst ignorance and confusion, living in today's society where morality is sliding down so quickly, who has not made any errors? It can only be based on our own notions, the notion that one error is worse than another while other mistakes aren't so severe. In fact, no human concept or incorrect thought can be brought to heaven.
  • "I Practice Falun Gong"

    Along the way, I spoke to him about many Fa principles, including the principle that good and evil have their respective rewards and punishments. He said, "I have lived for so long but no one has ever told me these principles. You are the first to tell me. When I was listening to you I felt very comfortable. Everyone I know is telling me how to avoid being bullied and how to cheat others out of their money. I feel very tired living this way. How wonderful it would be to live the kind of principled life you just described."
  • New Practitioners Witness Miracles of Dafa

    The neighbour practitioner assisted me in quitting the CCP Youth League and in watching Teacher's lecture videos. Soon miracles happened. I could sleep at night, work with little physical stress, and my illnesses all disappeared. Later my celestial eye opened. My husband noticed the changes in me and started to practice Falun Gong himself. Now the illnesses, including ossein proliferation, prostatitis and deafness, that he had suffered from for years are all cured.
  • I Was Promoted While Not Pursuing Gain

    During my report, the auditorium was very quiet. I introduced my academic achievements, which included over 30 articles in internationally recognized journals and five academic books. At the end of my report, I said, "Despite making progress in my field, I still have a long way to go to reach the requirements. I am willing to withdraw my application and give my chance to other scholars if the number of promotions is limited." The audience gave me great applause both during the report and afterwards.
  • Cultivation and art creation

    Let’s imagine that all painters who created the paintings for the “Art of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” exhibitions said to themselves: “Let’s not paint for the exhibition now. In 5 years we will be more pure to create paintings and those paintings will have an even bigger effect.” If they all had thought like this, the exhibitions that saved thousand of lives around the world would have never taken place.
  • I Finally Understand What Diligence Is

    One question has been interesting and unresolved for a long time for me. Many times I have asked myself, "What is diligence? If I know more about diligence itself, I will be able to become more diligent." Not long ago I found the answer:
  • Study the Fa with a Clear and Clean Mind

    Along with our attachments getting less and less, our thoughts achieve a relatively clean state, and our abilities of memorizing and understanding also become stronger and stronger. Some older practitioners' memories are actually better than those of young non-practitioners. Illiterate practitioners are able to read Zhuan Falun. Some practitioners are more effective in studying the Fa regardless of the time of day.
  • Clarifying the Truth While on Vacation

    We clarified the truth to different people by starting with small talk. With the Fa in our hearts, Teacher helped us to use our wisdom so that we were able to find a common topic to start a conversation. During the 24 hours (round-trip) spent on the train, we completely put our hearts into clarifying the truth. Without a break, we talked to people about Falun Gong. We just wanted to let the predestined people know the truth, and we weren't tired at all.
