I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. I feel a plethora of emotions when I reflect on the cultivation path I have traveled over the past 13 years, which include joy and frustration.
I used to be a very sensitive and shy person, yet deep down I was a perfectionist. My ideals crash-landed when confronted with cruel reality, and I struggled bitterly. I sought the truth when my best friend and colleague recommended Falun Gong to me one day in May 1996. After reading Falun Gong books, I suddenly understood the reason why there is so much suffering in life, and why are we here. As Master teaches us, our goal is not to be human, but to return to our true origins. I had finally obtained the Fa! My restless mind settled down, and I felt unprecedented, true happiness.
I have believed firmly in Teacher and Dafa, and under Teacher's protection, I have gradually matured as a practitioner.
It was Teacher who had blessed me;
It was Teacher who had cleansed my body;
It was Teacher who had scooped me up from the filthy abyss and purified me.
