(Minghui.org) “I wanted to know the meaning behind this world with all the chaos. Why are we here? What is true happiness? After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I felt that those searching for a spiritual path have not found what they were looking for. I think that they are all looking for Falun Dafa as well,” said Sean Reid. He began practicing Falun Dafa eight months ago.
The Wonderful Feeling of Upgrading Mind and Body After Letting Go of Attachments
Sean said, “I found out about Falun Dafa when I was doing roofing work ten years ago. I met a Western Falun Dafa practitioner named Stuart. I kept in contact with him on social media and over the years, I’ve changed my occupation. I had already been meditating when I reconnected with him. He suggested I come and try practicing Falun Dafa. I was under a lot of stress and anxiety during that time, so I said that I would come and practice with him. I noticed a lot of changes in me. Falun Dafa helped me a lot, and Stuart has also helped me begin practicing.
“I had a lot of questions about the way the world is now. I did not understand it. I had so many questions and I was looking for the answers not just in my life, but like who am I. It was about finding my inner world and my happiness. I was looking for a purpose in life. What was the meaning behind this world? What are we here? What am I meant to be doing with my life?”
Deep down, Sean knew that humans do not just live simply for the sake of having three meals per day.
Sean tried other spiritual practices and said, “In other spiritual practices, you only receive some knowledge but there is no enlightenment.
“I understood that through cultivating, Dafa can guide practitioners to eliminate attachments and desires. I am able to see how these attachments and desires are hindrances for us in upgrading our character. I enlightened to the wonders of upgrading my mind and body after letting go of attachments. I would have new enlightenments and constantly upgraded my level.”
He continued, “After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I felt that those searching for a spiritual path have not found what they were looking for. I think that they are all looking for Falun Dafa as well.”
Body Feels Lighter Each Time
“When I first started practicing the exercises, I noticed my arms and my entire body ached. I felt a heaviness and my eyes would just tear up. Tears would fall but I felt really good. I wasn’t upset in any way. I noticed that I was going through a cleansing as my eyes were watering and tearing. I felt lighter and lighter every time I practiced the exercises. It was really nice to know that Master was cleansing my body.”
Sean said his body felt lighter each time he did the exercises with other practitioners. It seemed as if a lot of negative things were eliminated.
Two amazing things happen to Sean not long after he began practicing Falun Dafa.
Sean said that after he did the fifth exercise for the first time, he realised that his psoriasis disappeared. “I have less stress, less anxiety and depression. I also let go of a toxic relationship I had in the past. Everything is getting a lot better for me as far as happiness, contentment, and peace goes.”
Hearing Master’s Voice
Sean said, “One day, I was just about to finish the fifth exercise when my eye started to hurt. I rubbed it and thought that there was something wrong with my eye. I got my phone out and saw that there was a leech in my eye.”
Sean then remembered reading in Master’s lectures that one will experience some things but to remain patient and not panic.
“I went to my car but still could not get the leech out. I was about to go to the doctor’s when I heard a voice. The voice told me to just squeeze my eye and the leech would come out. I did it and the leech did come out. It was about three centimeters big when I first saw it. It was double the size when it came out.
“My eyes always twitched due to all the stress I was under in the past. However, ever since the leech came out, my eyes no longer twitch and my eyesight is better.
“I just realised that Master did a cleansing for me. It was his voice that I heard telling me to squeeze the leech out. It was a good experience. My eyes feel very comfortable and better than before. This is a miracle.”
Sean reads the Fa and practices Falun Dafa’s exercises every day. He also attends morning group practice every weekend and group Fa study once a week.
“I am grateful to Master for giving me the opportunity to practice Falun Dafa. Every time I read Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, practice the exercises, and I’m with practitioners, I feel good, happy and complete. I think that Falun Dafa is what I will do for the rest of my life as it fulfills me.”
