Perfectly Arranged Initiation
a fellow initiate from Mainland China
(originally in Chinese)
After my husband and
I received Convenient Method transmission in May 2003, we began
to eagerly await initiation. During this period, I often dreamt
of Master and how She always blessed me and strengthened my faith
in various ways. However, as the days went by, we became increasingly
anxious and sometimes could not help but ask Master in our hearts,
“You said You would give us initiation. Why is there no news
yet?” In my heart, I understood that we should introspect
and be more patient, and that Master would definitely make the best
arrangement and give us initiation at the most appropriate time.
However, when I was alone, I would weep in front of Master’s
photo like a lost child who could not find her mother.
Then one night in March of
this year, I dreamt that a brother-initiate had come to inform us,
“You may receive initiation now.” Upon waking, I wanted
to relate this wonderful dream to my husband, who was as anxious
as I was to be initiated. However, he had already gone to work.
Later that morning, he called me excitedly on the telephone, saying,
“I was informed that there will be an initiation on the morning
of March 16 in a nearby country. Go quickly to have your photo taken
and get all the procedures completed at the travel agency. We have
only one week to spare!” I could hardly believe my ears, went
immediately to have my photo taken and then rushed to see my husband.
Overwhelmed with bliss, he told me, “God’s power is
indeed inconceivable. My company has arranged for me to attend a
meeting from March 12 to 15 in the country where the initiation
will be held, and they insisted that I go. Since the situation was
urgent I had to ask the travel agency to get a tourist visa to the
appropriate city for me. Even the air ticket is for that city. After
attending the meeting there, I’ll have enough time to get
the initiation on March 16. Everything has been seamlessly arranged!
It took my dumb brain quite a while to figure the situation out.
My visa is almost ready even though I only just received the notification
about the initiation.” Very soon, I also got my airline ticket
and visa through the travel agency.
On our initiation day, my husband
and I were watching one of Master’s lecture videos while awaiting
screening by a Quan Yin messenger. When we heard choral singing by
fellow initiates on the video, we both wept silently as our hearts
were stirred with mixed emotions — the joy of finding an enlightened
Master, longing to see Her, the pain that we felt for Master in bearing
karma for sentient beings, and uneasiness about passing the initiation
Despite our anxiety, the
screening and subsequent initiation went smoothly, and my husband
and I are now deeply grateful to Master for Her love and blessing
in allowing us to be spiritually reborn on March 16, 2004. On
that auspicious day, Master severed the shackles of transmigration
for us, and guided us on our way back Home.
