Two Stories of Receiving Blessings After Practicing Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners have been receiving blessings in various ways after they cultivate in Falun Gong and conduct themselves according to the principles. Here are two such stories.
The Secret to Earning Yearly Profits
I am a practitioner from a rural area. My main source of income comes from growing chives.
Since practicing Falun Gong, I have tried my best to use the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to improve myself. I am not tempted by profits, do not compete with others, and never lie. I manage the chives production well within my capability.
During harvest time, I sell my chives without adulteration and never tamper with my weighing scales. My actions have earned the traders' trust and they are willing to give a good price for my chives. As a result, I earn my profit quickly each year.
Gradually, some vegetable farmers noticed that whenever I was about to sell my chives, the price increases and decreases after I sell all my chives. They started to observe how I grew my chives—when I watered, added fertilizer, and harvested.
One of my employees asked me, “Why does the price increase whenever you sell your chives and decrease after you had sold it all? The quality of the chives is also very good. What's the secret?”
“The secret is because I practice Falun Gong and receive blessings. If you sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', you will receive blessings, as well.”
Paying for a Discrepancy from My Own Pocket
“You are so foolish. Everyone is trying to earn more money, but you are paying for a shortfall from your own pocket. Can't you change the ledger? Why don't you explain it to the boss? He won't make you pay for it.”
I work as a salesperson. Those words came from a colleague who saw that I paid 200 yuan out of my own pocket when I saw that some goods under my charge were missing as I was doing end of the month inventory. I simply wanted to take accountability for something that I was responsible for.
I would not have done this before I practiced Falun Gong. I recalled the days when I used to sell goods at a mall. One day, a young woman came to my store and wanted to buy something. She didn't buy anything in the end and accidentally left a purse on my counter. I took the purse when I saw no one was looking. The purse contained around 1,600 yuan.
I thought to myself, “I didn't steal this. That woman was too indecisive when buying things. If she comes back, I won't return it to her.” True enough, the woman came back shortly and asked if I'd seen her purse. I said “no” and she left.
Now I have been practicing Falun Gong, I know how to be a good person. I smile and tell the colleague who said I was foolish, “I practice Falun Gong. I can't do that. I must be responsible for the goods that are in my care. My Master taught me to use Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person. I must always think of others.”
When my colleague heard this, she said, “Through your actions, I see the wonderfulness of Falun Gong. People like you are now rare in this world.”
