在证实法中实修自己

Cultivate solidly in validating the Fa

John

尊敬的师父好!同修们好!

Greetings Master! Greetings fellow practitioners!

我是1996年得法修炼的,到现在已经修炼17年了,在这十几年的修炼中,在师尊的慈悲呵护下,我从一个常人逐渐稳步走向一个修炼人,其间见证了大法修炼的严肃、殊胜和美妙,在此把修炼中的一些点滴体会做个总结,向师尊汇报,与同修交流。

It has been 17 years since I gained the Fa in 1996. During these years of cultivation, under the merciful care of venerable Master, I have stepped gradually towards becoming a cultivator from being an ordinary person, during which the solemnity, significance and wonderfulness of Dafa cultivation has been witnessed. Here, I summarise some experiences in my cultivation and report it to venerable Master, as well as share it with fellow practitioners.

 

1、喜得大法 精进实修

1.      Delightedly gained the Fa and cultivated solidly and diligently

1996年,在同学的介绍下,我走入了大法修炼。第一次聆听师尊在广州的讲法,对我的震撼就很大,我一下子明白了人生的真实意义,世界观发生了天翻地覆的变化。在读完几遍《转法轮》后,师尊为我清理了身体,从此以后十几年的修炼中我没有上过一次医院,这是大法的神奇和威德。

In 1996, I was introduced by a schoolmate to practise Dafa. The first time I listened to Master’s Fa teaching in Guangzhou, I was deeply shocked and I suddenly got to understand the real meaning of human life, and my world view completely changed. After reading Zhuan Falun a few times, Master cleansed my body. Since then, I have never gone to hospital during more than 10 years of cultivation, which is a manifestation of Dafa’s miraculous and benevolent might.

 

初期得法,由于在常人中形成的很大的思想业力的干扰,思想中控制不住的经常想与大法抵触的念头,甚至骂人、骂大法、骂师父,我按照师父要求的,分清自己的主意识,努力排斥坏思想,努力学法。那时师父在《法轮大法义解》里面已经有要求希望学员们背书,为了自己修炼中更好的坚定正念,否定思想业力,我从开始背下来一讲到后来逐渐把整本《转法轮》全部背下来,感觉提高和收益很大。背书时从身体的最微观到最表面人的思想都在专注学法,解决了学法思想溜号的问题,从中也不断悟道更高的法理,十分的美妙、殊胜。

In the early days of my cultivating Dafa, due to interference from big thought-karma that was formed in ordinary human society, bad thoughts that went against Dafa often emerged out of control, even silently swearing at others, swearing at Dafa, or swearing at Master. According to what Master requires, I distinguished my main consciousness from my bad thoughts, tried hard to expel them and strove to study the Fa. At that time, in “Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa”, Master asked practitioners to recite the Fa; therefore, in order to strengthen my righteous thoughts and deny thought-karma during my cultivation, I gradually recited from one lecture in the beginning to all of Zhuan Falun in the end, from which I benefited a lot and improved greatly. When reciting the Fa, from the most microcosmic part of my body to the thoughts at the outermost surface, my whole mind was focused on studying the Fa, which solved the problem of mind distraction. Also, higher principles of the Fa kept unfolding in my mind, which were quite significant and wonderful.

 

记得有一次冬季十分寒冷的晚上晚饭后在户外抱轮,寒风凛冽中我感觉手和身体都快冻僵了,就在快到身体承受极限的时候,我的心念有一个瞬间达到了入定,立即感到身体消失了,微观的能量从身体的深处宇宙中来到了表面,剩下的唯有温暖、幸福和安详,真是美妙极了。虽然持续的时间不长,但真正让我体会到了什么是大自在和神的状态。我们正是因为有了这个肉身才受这冷热劳累病痛之苦的,而我们修好的身体已经是神体了,是师父把我们从地狱捞起,又给了我们这么神圣美好的一切,感谢师尊救度!

I remember once on a cold winter’s evening when I was practising the second exercise outside the house, my hands and body were nearly frozen in the cold wind. The moment when it was approaching the limit of my endurance, my thought went into deep concentration in an instant. Immediately, my whole body disappeared and microcosmic energy from the universe deep inside my body came to the outside surface. There was nothing left but warmth, happiness and serenity, which was absolutely wonderful. Although it didn’t last long, it indeed made me experience what was called the state of ultimate leisure as a Divine being. It is because of our flesh bodies that we suffer from the pain of coldness, hotness, tiredness and sickness. The parts of body that have been cultivated well are already that of a Divine being. It is Master who fished us up from Hell and provided us with everything that is so sacred and wonderful. Thank you Master for your painstaking salvation!

 

2、历经劫难志不退

2. Unbending aspiration after going through tribulations

 

1999720日,邪恶铺天盖地而来迫害大法,我们的修炼从那时起转入了正法修炼阶段,证实大法、制止迫害、讲清真相、救度众生的伟大责任落在了每一个大法弟子的肩头。然而由於自己的人心还很重,对常人所谓美好生活的向往,对魔难的怕心、对邪恶来势的掉以轻心、对考验的长期性、修炼的严肃性、救度众生的艰巨性认识不足等等因素,使得自己被邪恶的旧势力钻了空子,在一次外出粘贴真相资料时被捕,后被邪恶非法判重刑入狱。在邪恶的警局、看守所和监狱,我先后经历被邪恶暴打、冬天浇冷水、剥夺睡眠、强制洗脑、奴役劳动等迫害,然而这些都不能磨灭我心中对大法的信念。由于我能背诵不少大法经文,这时也感到平时的学法如此重要和珍贵。记得2001年天安门自焚伪案之时,恶党检察院人员提审暗示我只要承认邪恶制造的自焚案,有个所谓的“好态度”就可以轻判,我不为所动,告诉他们自焚不可能是法轮功学员所为。在法庭上,我与同修们不承认邪恶的法庭,正面证实大法,邪恶气急败坏对我们非法判重刑。之后我被下放到监狱,被投入了人称“狱中狱”的某监区。在这里邪恶专门调集了各监狱的酷吏,实施所谓的严管,制造恐怖和肃杀的气氛来妄图从精神上压垮大法弟子、利用邪悟者欺骗大法弟子。我通过自己背法和陆续听到同修带进来师父的新经文讲法,明辨了是非,走出了迷茫,摆脱了邪恶妄想迫使我邪悟从而被它们利用的阴谋。我每天积极背法、发正念,有机会就与其他同修交流,鼓励他们也清醒起来,发正念清除邪恶。记得一次我念动正念口诀,瞬间感到微观的能量如霹雳般穿透了时空,在急速消灭着邪恶。随着我们不断的发正念,邪恶的铁幕被撕开了一个口子。在监狱法轮功学员与家属接见都是隔着玻璃的,家属送进来的物品恶警要仔细检查,然而一位大法弟子的家人同修还是冒着危险,巧妙的把师父的十几篇新经文和诗词打印在很小的纸上送了进来,传到了我的手中。我冒着危险找机会把经文都背诵下来,然后再传给其他同修看,先后有78名同修传阅了这份宝贵的经文。无法传阅的,我就找机会给他们背诵。另外空间的邪恶看到我们的举动,蠢蠢欲动伺机反扑。一天晚上我做梦看到恶警头子扬言要抓住传经文的人所谓的“严惩”。我知道这是师父在点化保护我们,就立即通知当时保存经文的另外一位同修把经文巧妙的藏好。没多久邪恶为找到经文开始了全面细致的搜查,但一无所获,我们在师父的保护下平安度过危险。

On 20 July1999, overspreading evil fell from Heaven to persecute Dafa. Cultivation shifted into the Fa-rectification phase. The great responsibility of validating the Fa, stopping the persecution, clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings fell upon every Dafa disciple. However, since I still harboured strong human thoughts, for example a yearning for the so-called good life, the fear of tribulations, underestimating the momentum of the evil, the lack of awareness of the persistence of the test, the solemnity of cultivation and the hardship of saving sentient beings, etc, I was exploited and taken advantage of by the evil old forces, and captured outdoors when pasting truth materials one night. Later, I was illegally heavily sentenced by the evil and put behind bars. In the evil police station, detention house and jail, I experienced persecution of fiercely being beaten by the evil, having cold water poured over me in the winter, deprivation of sleep, forced brainwashing and slave labour, etc, but none of these could efface the faith for Dafa from my heart. Since I could recite many Dafa scriptures, I felt Fa study in peacetime was so important and precious. I still remember in 2001 when the fake self-immolation happened on Tiananmen Square, personnel from the evil Party’s procuratorate implied during an interrogation that if I acknowledged the self-immolation fabricated by the evil and had a so called “good attitude”, I would be sentenced lightly. I was unmoved and told them it was impossible that the self-immolation was the conduct of Falun Gong practitioners. In court, fellow practitioners and I denied the evil court and validated Dafa from a positive perspective. In utter discomfiture, the evil illegally sentenced us heavily.

 

Later, I was sent to a jail and cast into a so-called “jail in jail” prison. Here, the evil summoned harsh jailors from various jails to implement the so-called “harsh administration” by creating an atmosphere of horror to try to mentally break Dafa disciples and exploit people with evil “enlightenment” to cheat Dafa disciples. Through reciting the Fa myself and listening to new scriptures and Fa teachings of Master brought in by fellow practitioners in succession, I made a clear distinction between right and wrong, stepped out of the perplexity and broke away from the plot of the evil to force me to accept evil “enlightenment” and be exploited by them. I proactively recited the Fa and sent righteous thoughts every day; whenever there was a chance, I would share with fellow practitioners and encouraged them to be clearheaded and send righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. I still remember one time when I recited the formula for Fa rectification, instantly the energy from the microcosm penetrated space and time like thunder and eliminated the evil rapidly. Along with our persistent righteous thoughts, the iron curtain of the evil had a hole torn in it. In jail, when Falun Gong practitioners met with their family members, they were separated by glass and the jailors would check carefully the stuff sent in by family members. Nevertheless, under great peril, a fellow practitioner, who was also a family member of a Dafa disciple, still ingeniously sent in more than 10 of Master’s new scriptures and poems printed on a very small piece of paper. This paper was later transferred to me and under peril I found a chance to recite them all and then passed them on to other fellow practitioners. Successively, there were 7 or 8 fellow practitioners who read this precious scripture. For those who did not have a chance to read it, I managed to find a chance to recite it to them. The evil in other dimensions saw what we did and were ready to attack us in retaliation. One night in a dream, I saw the head of the jailors say he would capture the person who had passed on the scripture and have him punished severely. I knew it was Master who was revealing things to us and protecting us, so I immediately told another fellow practitioner who was holding the scripture to hide it ingeniously. It was not long before the evil began a thorough search for the scripture, but they found nothing. We passed the peril safely under the protection of Master.

 

在邪恶的监狱,我还经历过几次病业关。一次是在冬天我出现发烧症状浑身无力,不得已躺在床上休息。恶警知道后,强迫我吃药,没想到几分钟后我的胃里像翻江倒海一样恶心,把胃液都吐出来了,我明白我是一个纯净的身体,是师父不让我吃药。之后再强迫我吃药我就暗中把它吐掉,这样没两天就好了。还有一次也是在冬天,社会上流行军团病,症状是发烧、腹泻,监狱里也同时流行,几十人都在腹泻,我也出现了病业假象,一天腹泻八到十次。常人都去排队领药,我这回吸取上次教训,再难受也要表现得像没事一样,念一正,也就没有那么难受了。按常人的说法腹泻几次就会浑身瘫软,然而我两天腹泻近20次,过后却浑身轻松充满了能量,一点没有事。正如师父所说“真真假假重在悟”,往往我们在过关过难时表现的形式和常人遇到的麻烦一模一样,就看自己在困难面前的心念是在哪里,是动常人的念还是用修炼者的正念对待,一念之差,天壤之别。

In the evil jail, I also underwent several tribulations of sickness karma. Once in the winter, I got a fever and felt very weak. I had no choice but to lie in bed to rest. When the jailors knew this, they forced me to take medicine. However, a few minutes later, I felt extremely sick, as if my stomach were churning upside down and I threw up my gastric juice. I realised that I was a pure body and Master did not allow me to take medicine. Later, when they forced me to take medicine, I spat it out secretly and I recovered in less than two days. Another time was also in winter when Legionnaires’ disease was spreading in society, with the symptoms of fever and diarrhoea. It was also spreading in the jail and several dozen people had diarrhoea. The false appearance of sickness karma also happened to me and I had diarrhoea eight to ten times in one day. Ordinary people all went to line up in a queue for medicine. I learned from the lesson of the previous time and performed as if I was fine, though I was actually very uneasy. With this righteous thought, I didn’t feel so uneasy then. According to ordinary people’s perception, one would end up very weak after several bouts of diarrhoea, but quite the opposite, I had diarrhoea nearly 20 times in two days and felt relaxed and full of energy, without even a little bit of trouble. Exactly as Master has said: “Amidst truth and falsehood, enlightening is important.” (‘Enlightenment’, Essentials for Further Advancement). Often when we are facing tribulations, it will appear as if it is an ordinary person’s trouble; the most important thing is how to put right our thoughts. Will we think using an ordinary person’s perception or treat it with the righteous thought of a cultivator? A difference in thinking will bring about totally different results.

 

3、走入新环境

3.      Stepping into a new environment

 

走出了邪恶的监狱后,经过一段时间准备我找机会来到了澳洲,来到一个新的修炼环境中。海外环境相对宽松,但是对修炼人的要求与要达到的标准同样严格。这期间也有不少体会,主要有以下几点写出来总结一下。

Stepping out of the evil prison, I came to Australia after some preparation and stepped into a new cultivation environment. The environment overseas is much more relaxed, but the requirements for cultivators and the standards we must meet are just as rigorous. I have had some experience in this process and there are some main points I would like to share as follows:

 

4、在推广神韵中升华

3.     Sublimation in the process of promoting Shen Yun

 

神韵是高度专业化的艺术演出,海外推广神韵也需要我们参与推广的大法弟子走专业化道路。我学习了神韵推广专业知识,掌握了推广的一些技巧。之后我参加了商场推广和挨家挨户的信箱投递推广。商场推广中,我按照神韵推广的要求着装整齐,面带笑容,把神韵的美好带给来来往往的众生,让众生与大法结善缘,这就是我们救人的使命。比较辛苦的是挨家挨户的信箱投递,推广期间时值澳洲的春夏季节,阳光强烈,灼热难当,过程中走很多路,加上夏季的炎热天气,体力消耗很大。但一天下来回到家里,非但没有感觉到疲惫,反而觉得浑身由内向外的发光发热,有强大的能量场在放射着光焰,我知道这是我在做的过程中自己的业力消除掉了一些,师父也在帮我演化功、加持能量,谢谢慈悲伟大的师父给了弟子这样一个升华和建立威德的机会!

Shen Yun represents highly professional performing arts and promoting Shen Yun overseas needs our Dafa disciples walking down a professional way. I learned some professional knowledge for promoting Shen Yun and grasped some skills for promotion. Then I took part in the shopping centre promotions and mail drop promotions. In the shopping centre promotions, I dressed tidily and smiled according to the requirements of promoting Shen Yun. Bringing the beauty of Shen Yun to sentient beings passing by, helping sentient beings to form benevolent ties with Dafa, this was a mission in saving people. Mail drops were relatively laborious. The time for promotion fell in late spring and early summer in Australia, with strong and scorching sunlight. We needed to walk a long way in the process, causing great physical exertion in the hot summer weather. But on returning home after a day’s promotion, not only was no exhaustion felt, but my body emitted light and warmth from inside out with a strong energy field. I knew some of my karma was eliminated during the process and Master was helping me to evolve gong and reinforce energy. Thank you merciful and great Master for giving this disciple the opportunity to elevate and build up benevolent mighty virtue!

 

5、打营救电话中的体会

5. Experience in making rescue calls

 

在参加电话营救平台的拨打中,在同修的鼓励下,我学习同修的拨打经验,进步很快。有一次一个警察听到是法轮功,立即说要抓捕我,然后就把电话挂了。我心想这个警察虽然虚张声势,其实心里面害怕听真相,原因是他背后有邪恶因素。我记起师父讲过“语气、善心加上道理能改变人心”的法理,警察也是我们要救度的对象,因此我不能带着不善的因素来给他们打电话,可能我的语气中有居高临下和教训人的味道,加上自己以前受过迫害,对警察可能有怨恨心,就会使他思想抵触,不听真相。我调整了一下自己的心态,再次拨通这个号码,这个警察还是说要抓捕我。我说:“这位警察,请你不要有敌意,先不要说抓我不抓我的话。我打这个电话是真心的为了你好,因为我看到你们现在被蒙蔽了,自己的处境危险,但是自己却不知道,我就想一定要把真相告诉你,让你摆脱危险的处境。”这么一说,他马上不说话了,默默的把真相听完了。虽然他没有说退党,但我感到他的态度有了明显的转变。我感到我们打过去的每一通电话都是有效果的,都在逐渐融化那些谎言和仇恨。

In participating in the rescue phone call platform, under the encouragement from fellow practitioners I made rapid progress by learning experiences from fellow practitioners. Once, on hearing that it was a Falun Gong practitioner who made the call, a policeman said immediately that he would chase and capture me, then hung up the phone. I thought though this policeman sounded as if he were powerful, actually he feared the truth because he had evil factors behind him. I recalled the principle of Fa taught by Master: “Your tone of voice, your kindheartedness, and your reasoning can change a person’s heart.”(‘Clearheadedness’, Essentials for Further Advancement). Policemen are also people we should save. Therefore, I shouldn’t make phone calls to them with factors that weren’t benevolent. Maybe there was some commanding and didactical sense in my tone. In addition, I was persecuted before and might hold some grudge towards policemen. These factors could cause rejection in his thoughts, making him refuse the truth. After adjusting my mentality, I called this number again and the policeman said again he would capture me. I said: “Mr Policeman, please don’t be hostile and put aside the words of capturing me for a while. I am sincerely holding benevolence towards you by making this phone call because I see that you are deceived and in danger, but you do not know this yet. So I think I must tell you the truth and help you get rid of the danger. ” On saying this, he immediately shut up and listened to the truth in silence. Though he did not say he would quit the CCP, I still felt an obvious change in his attitude. I feel every call we make has the effect of melting those lies and hatred gradually.

 

6、在唐人街面对面讲真相

6. Face-to-face truth clarification in Chinatown

 

布里斯班是澳洲的一个主要旅游城市,很多中国大陆的游客来旅游一般中午都会到唐人街购物、吃午饭,但只是一走一过,讲真相的难度比较大,但总会有一部分游客受到触动。有一次天气比较热,一个好心的司机特意把他买的两瓶巧克力饮料送给我们喝,我感到世人觉醒的速度在加快;还有一次一车的游客听到真相后都很受触动,说我们都是中国人,都要为了中国好,问我们能否讲点中国好的方面,我们就把中国不等于中共的道理告诉他们,请他们打消对中共的幻想,最后他们很多人都想要看真相资料。当然也有不理解的、讥笑甚至谩骂的,遇到这种情况,我都会思考他们的心结误在哪里了,从中积累经验提高自己讲真相的水平和力度,争取下次再碰到类似问题时能讲到位。我感到面对面讲真相是很重要的一个项目,特别是这样大面积的针对可贵的中国人,我们必须做好、做得更好。

Brisbane is one of the major tourist cities in Australia. Many Mainland Chinese tourists come to Chinatown for shopping and lunch. However, they are mostly passers-by, making it hard to clarify the truth to them. Nevertheless, there are always some tourists who are touched by the truth. Once, it was hot weather and a kind-hearted driver deliberately gave us two bottles of chocolate beverage that he had bought. I felt the common people’s pace of awakening was accelerating. There was another time when all the tourists on a bus were moved after listening to the truth. They said they were all Chinese people who hope China will become better, asking us if we could speak on some good aspect about China. We then told them the truth that China doesn’t equal the Chinese Communist Party and kindly reminded them to give up illusions about the CCP. In the end, many of them wanted to read the truth materials. Of course, there were ones who did not understand, teased and even flung abuses. Running into these occasions, I would ponder over what the roots of their misunderstandings were in order to accumulate experience and improve the level and strength of truth clarification in the hope that I could speak right to the point the next time. I feel truth clarification face-to-face is a very important project, especially facing these valuable Chinese people in large numbers. We must do well and do better.

 

今生有幸得到这万古难遇的宇宙大法,有这样慈悲伟大的师父在带我们修炼,我怎么能不珍惜! 我们唯有用更加精进的实际行动来报答师父、把三件事做得更好,才不负我们正法时期大法弟子的称号,才对得起这万古机缘。同修们,共同精进吧!

To have this honour of obtaining the great cosmic Dafa in this reincarnation, having such a merciful and great Master leading us in cultivation, how can we not treasure it?! We can only requite Master with the practical actions of being more diligent and doing the three things well; only then can we deserve the title of “Dafa disciples in the Fa-rectification period” and be worthy of this eternally lucky chance. Fellow practitioners, let’s be diligent together!

 

粗浅认识,不当之处请同修慈悲指正。

The above is my limited understanding. Please kindly point out anything improper.

 

谢谢师父!

谢谢同修!

Thank you Master!

Thank you fellow practitioners!
