All Issues Can be Resolved Simply by Looking Inward

I began practising Falun Gong in 1999. After the illegal, ruthless and highly inhumane persecution started against the practice in China on July 20th, 1999, I used my human notions to show other that Falun Gong is something and good and shouldn't be treated in such a way, as a result I was subjected to constant harassment. Afterward I diligently studied the Falun Gong teachings and found that I needed to change my thoughts.

In May of 2005,my manager called me into his office and said that the district committee had decided to fire me and that the company agreed. When I heard this, I thought to myself, "Only what Teacher says counts."

I started to take the facts surrounding Falun Gong and the truth about the persecution to my manager, trying to keep my job. At one point I said, "I have the right to work. You don't have a reason to fire just me and not other practitioners." I thought I was reasoning with him, but when I thought it over later, I realised that I had spoken out of jealousy and selfishness. But even though I realised I had jealousy, I did not make any effort to eliminate it through improving my character.

When the manager told my husband what he intended to do, my husband said, "She did nothing wrong but practise Falun Gong and try to be a good person. It's OK if you fire her, but you must personally sign her termination notice so that I can find you to square accounts when Falun Gong is redressed." The manager refused and also stated that that he would report this to the senior official. Then he left hurriedly. In 2006 my employer signed a contract with me.

In early 2007, the manager decided to transfer me to a remote rural collection site and replace me with an employee who had been in a rural area for many years. I thought it was very unfair, "I used to be her supervisor and I was more capable than she. How dare they treat me like this!"

When I sat down to calmly study the Falun Gong teachings, I realised that my jealousy had created a loophole, so I told myself that I must eliminate the jealousy. While I was trying to clear it away, it often appeared in my mind. I could feel it and so I repelled it. With continuous strong righteous thoughts I managed to stop it from re-appearing. So the day I met the person who would be taking my job, I found I could speak with her quietly and calmly. I watched what I was thinking, and did my best to keep a calm and tranquil mind. I felt I had met the requirement for that level.

In August of 2007 the manager unexpectedly assigned me the best collection stall. Within eight days I had collected 50 kilogrammes of product that my work unit needed, and I had earned 1,200 hundred yuan. I had previously held a management job, and this was my first time in the business sector. My colleagues and manager praised me, and my manager agreed to transfer me back to my previous unit. He is now considering me for the position of head of the women's division.

I deeply understand that if I look inward and cultivate calmly and according to the Falun Gong teachings, if things are done in this manner then any issue can be resolved.
