师父领我走上修炼路 Master Leads Me into Cultivation
AM08: JD Wu, Molbourne
Greetings Fellow Practitioners!
My name is Wu Xiaodi. I was born in 1936 and migrated to Melbourne Australia in 2005. I used to see practitioners in China Town in Melbourne and with their help I started to practice Falun Dafa in April 2013.
Here I’d like to share with you some of my cultivation experiences.
Master Planted Falun, Qiji and All the Mechanisms for Me
“Our practice cultivates a Falun in the lower abdomen. I personally install it for practitioners in the class. While I am teaching Falun Dafa, we install it for everyone in succession.” (Lecture One Zhuan Falun)
Master also said:
“Here we will provide you with Falun, qiji,20 and all the mechanisms for cultivation practice and so on—more than ten thousand of them. They will all be given to you like seeds being planted in your body. After removing your illnesses, I will do everything that needs to be done and give you everything that should be given. Then, you will be able to truly continue your cultivation practice in our school until the end.” (Lecture Three Zhuan Falun)
Soon after I practiced Falun Dafa, I felt the energy spinning in my abdomen, palms and baihui point when I was sitting in meditation or doing the second exercises or reading Falun Dafa books. I knew that Master planted Falun, qiji and all the mechanisms for me and adjusted my body. I was so proud that I had Falun! As an eighty-year-old new practitioner with lots of karmas, Master still provided me with the precious Falun, qiji and all the mechanisms. I was bathed in Master’s boundless compassion.
Master Encouraged Me to Sit in Full Lotus Position
I understand it is required that one should sit in full lotus position when practicing the sitting meditation. At the time I doubted that I could achieve that because I was old and my bones became loose and hard. I could hardly sit in half lotus position. How possible was I able to sit in full lotus position? No chance in this life time. When I was negative and pessimistic, I came across this Fa.
“we actually require the full-lotus position…… You may do half-lotus if you can’t yet sit in full-lotus, but you still need to work to gradually put both of your legs up…… because this exercise calls for you to sit with both legs crossed.” (Chapter III Mechanisms and Principles of the Exercise Movements, The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection)
Since it was required, as a Falun Dafa practitioner and Master’s disciple, I should do as required. I tried many times to sit in full lotus position but failed every time. I got anxious and upset and complained why I obtained the Fa so late. But as a Dafa practitioner, I shouldn’t only complain or get upset. I should go forward and breakthrough myself.
When I started to sit in half lotus position, I set a rule for myself which was that I would not put my legs down until the one-hour exercise music stopped no matter how painful my legs and back were.
“This is because we have seen that when the legs are painful, the black substance moves to the legs. The black substance is karma that can be eliminated through suffering; it can then be transformed into de. Once the pain is felt, karma begins to be eliminated. The more karma that comes, the more pain the legs feel. Therefore, the pain in the legs does not arise without reason.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
Through determination and strong will, I persevered. Sometimes it was unbearably painful. I then repeated “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)
So I struggled like this for about one month. One night I suddenly thought of asking Master for help. I said to Master: “Master, please strengthen me and enable me to sit in full lotus position.” Then I put my right leg on top of the left and then tried to pull the left upon the right. Guess what? I easily did it. I became excited and said to my husband near me: “Look, I can sit in full lotus. Master helped me. We must cultivate diligently. Master is just beside us!”
For some time my right ankle became swollen. And on another time my kneels got painful. But nothing could stop me from mediting in full lotus for a whole hour.
Master Purifying My Body
“When you feel very uncomfortable, it indicates that things will turn around after reaching the extreme point. Your whole body will be purified and it must be completely purified. The cause of your illness has been removed, and what remains is only this bit of black qi that will come out on its own to let you suffer some and have some pain. It is forbidden for you not to suffer even a little bit.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
From the Fa I came to understand that it is normal to have the symptoms of “illness”. Master cleanses my body and purifies my body. Master digs out the roots of illnesses for me. I had to bear the hardships.
In the first week of my Dafa practice, I had a steady dull pain in my belly. I knew it was a good thing. Master was dissolving the karma for me. Several days later the pain disappeared. One month later it looked like I had a bad cold and coughed badly, especially at night. I had sore throat and couldn’t sleep at night. But I recovered in two weeks without any medication.
Later I had pain in my liver area. I was not concerned with it and recovered after a few days. Not long ago I leaned forward while walking and felt numb or prickled in my leg when practicing the third exercise. I also felt back pain when sitting in meditation. My back was injured in 2003 when I was in China and the hospital treatment merely pushed the symptoms into my body and didn’t cure it. Now Master adjusted my body and dissolved the karma for me. They were normal reactions. I feel much better now.
I would have gone to the hospital for check-ups if I were still an ordinary person. I would have taken medicines and had injections. I used to do various blood tests at leave twice a year and have scans and x-rays on my liver, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas and kidney as well as having vaccinations.
I haven’t seen any doctor since I started Dafa practice. I received my doctor’s letter a while ago saying elderly people above 75 years old could have free physical examinations. I didn’t go. My doctor thought I couldn’t understand English so sent me a Chinese letter and urged me to have an examination. He said that a nurse would accompany me if I went to check up.
“But how could a divine being have ordinary people administer treatment on him? And how could ordinary people heal a divine being's sickness?” (Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angles)
I am a person walking on the divine path. I don’t have any illness. So I haven’t gone for the examination.
About two month after his practice of Dafa, my husband had red pimples in his legs and arms. This was called urticaria medically. He applied some ointment but it didn’t work. He hardly had any sleep that night.
The following evening I shared this with a fellow practitioner in the Fa study group. He said: “Master is very compassionate. Dafa is miraculous. Don’t use ointment any more. Please ask Master for help.” At 10pm that night, my husband had more pimples on his limbs and also on his chest. It was itchy and it developed. I said to him: “You have heard what that practitioner said. You shouldn’t use ointment tonight. Please ask help from Master.”
He said to Master: “Master, I have pimples all over my body. I feel uncomfortable. Master please help me.” He lay down on the bed. He didn’t scratch or did anything and soon fell asleep. He didn’t wake up until the following morning. He hasn’t had this symptom since then. Master got rid of the pimples for him. We witnessed Master’s compassion and wonderfulness of Dafa once again.
Try to Do the Three Things Well
“But for you, disciples of Dafa, you cannot let up in what you need to do -- namely, the three tasks. By all means, you mustn’t. Nothing less than your mighty virtue, your cultivation, and all that you shoulder is bound up in these.”
Though I am a new practitioner, by no means I shall cultivate less diligently. I shall do the three things well as required.
Studying the Fa well is one of the three things. In order to have more time, I don’t watch everyday people’s TV or read everyday people’s newspapers. Nor do I read books that are not-related to Dafa. I seldom spend time chatting with people. I spend all my time studying the Fa. I haven’t missed any group Fa study. My husband and I are both in our eighties. We take bus to attend group Fa study every Tuesday night and Friday night regardless it is rain or shine. These are good opportunities for sharing and improving ourselves.
Besides group Fa study, I also study the Fa by myself. In the previous year I have read Zhuan Falun many times and read the whole set of Dafa books. Some of the books I have read more than once. I was often moved to tears. The profoundness of Dafa is just like what Master wrote in the poem “Falun World” in Hongyin :“Words cannot describe its beauty and wonder.”
When I read Zhuan Falun and other Dafa books, something attracts me. The more I read, the more I want to read and the more I like to read. Previously I was occupied with all sorts of house work. But now I often forgot the house work or didn’t bother with meals or sleep. I just read – one chapter after another, one book after another, even the same book again and again. I have experienced Master’s boundless compassion and know the true purpose of life which is to assimilate to the universal principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and return to one’s original self. Dafa can rectify the universe and elevate people. It is truly wonderful!
“However hard the situation may be, you still must do the three things well. Saving sentient beings—that is a Dafa disciple’s responsibility!” (Fa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conference)
There are many Chinese tourists in Fitzroy Garden every day. It is an important site for us to clarify the truth to Chinese people. My husband and I often go there to distribute Dafa materials and clarify the truth to them and hold up banners there regardless it is rain or shine, cold or hot. We have some new folded banners this year. They are large and heavy. Sometimes I have to hold them for a considerable time until the travel buses leave. My arms hurt sometimes. But it was nothing because I was doing the most sacred thing – saving sentient beings.
One day on my way to the truth-clarifying site which was about 35 minutes walk from my home, I felt dizzy at a cross road and felt like I was about to fall down. I thought to myself: I would not acknowledge it if it was old forces’ interference or so-called test and nothing could prevent me from being in the truth-clarifying site. It disturbed me for three weeks before it disappeared.
Some tourists readily accepted our materials while some didn’t. Some said in sarcasm: “You old lady. Better stay at home. Stop talking nonsense. Who will listen to you?” I didn’t get angry and not take it to the heart either.
With the help of fellow practitioners, I started to send forth righteous thoughts six months later. I send forth righteous thoughts around the clock. During Shen Yun promotion, I joined the FZN team. I knew that when we FZN, we are demonstrating our divine powers to clear the evil. It is our responsibility and I shall not miss out. I am confident that with the improvement of my xinxing and development of my gong, I will have stronger power to eliminate the evil.
With Master’s protection and care, I have gone through ups and downs but have managed to walk on the cultivation path so far. Compared with diligent practitioners or as required by the Fa, I still have a long way to catch up.
“As for newer practitioners, Master is really concerned about you, and I really hope you can catch up.”( Fa Teaching on World Falun Dafa Day Given at the 2014 New York Fa Conference)
I shall live up to Master’s expectation. I will take this opportunity of Fahui to learn from other practitioners and learn how fellow practitioners look within, cooperate unconditionally and solidly cultivate themselves. I will go beyond personal cultivation and try to keep up with the process of Fa rectification and let Master worry about me less. I will cultivate myself while doing the three things, try to let go of human notions and get rid of human thoughts. I will follow Master and walk on the divine path steadily.
Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
Thank you Master!
Thank you fellow practitioners!
