When I received the initiation, Master was working abroad -- struggling hard to find an abode for the asylum seekers. The disciples in Formosa were very sincere that soon after Master returned, She especially allowed the disciples to hold an International 7-Day Retreat in Taipei, to pray for world peace and to bless the world. Although I knew that Master had returned, and I had missed Her immensely, I was hindered by secular matters, and regrettably missed the 7-Day Retreat.
After the retreat, some fellow practitioners told me: "The asylum seekers are badly in need of people to give them homes and jobs. Since your family runs a factory, perhaps you can help." Upon hearing these words, I was so honored to know that I could contribute something, and was very eager to convey to Master, face to face, my intent and ability to accept the asylum seekers in my factory. Besides, I had never see Master in person, so I was extremely anxious to do so.
Anxiously, I waited for the Sunday after the retreat to come, and then visited Hsihu Center for the first time, with a happy heart. As Master had been away for a long time, a particularly huge crowd of fellow practitioners and guests had come that day. I could only see an ocean of people, and I had no idea where to find Master.
Later, I consulted a resident brother at the Spiritual Information Counter: "I need to see Master about some important matters. Is it possible for me to talk to Master in person?" Unexpectedly, after they had questioned me thoroughly, the answer was: "Master already knows what you want to say! If you meditate sincerely, Master will naturally come to find you."
My fervent zeal was totally shattered by these words. I was very disappointed and upset. I went there single-mindedly to see Master. Why couldn't I find Her? Having no option, I followed everyone and found a place to meditate.
After some time, Master came down to give a discourse. During the lecture, I kept expecting Master to call my name: "Where is Hwang?" Therefore, I waited attentively for Master to call my name, but She didn't! I was disappointed once more.
Master began to walk around the venue after the lecture. I was sitting beneath a tree near the platform waiting for Her. However, She went this way and walked that way but always turned away whenever She was getting near me. She walked all over the place, except to my spot.
Finally, Master gave me a delightful surprise -- She didn't walk to me directly, instead She did so walking backwards. She kept backing up until She was right in front of me, then She suddenly bent down and gazed straight into my eyes. The distance was so near -- just a few centimeters. Looking into Master's beautiful eyes, I was absolutely stunned and couldn't say a word. Master then straightened up, rubbed Her eyes, and bent down again looking into my eyes. Blessed by Master's ocean deep gaze of love, I totally forgot all the words that I had prepared in my heart for so long. I simply freezed on the spot, enjoying the boundless love and pampering. Even after Master got up and walked away, I was still intoxicated by the heavenly ecstasy.
Later, a fellow sister came over and patted me on the shoulder, saying, "Brother! You must have tremendous blessed merit. Master looked at you more than once!" I immediately turned around searching for Master, with the urge of rushing to Her side, and telling Her all the words that had been long stored in my heart. I hesitated when I saw so many people around. Having stopped for a while, I was finally enlightened: Master had read my mind already! She had answered my yearning with Her actions. Since She already knew everything, why should I bother to speak more? Understanding the truth, I couldn't help cry out loud due to my rapture, "Oh! Your stupid disciple has finally been enlightened!"
I feel that Master is truly a living Buddha who can answer prayers everywhere simultaneously. She is fully equipped with the powers of a heavenly eye, heavenly ears, and the capacity to read minds. Otherwise, how could She have known what was on my mind? We hardly knew each other before the initiation, nor had we ever met before. That was the first time I saw Her after the initiation, yet She knew everything! No wonder the fellow brother at the Spiritual Information Counter told me: "Master already knows what you want to say!" And, I did personally witness Master's inconceivably great power.
I love Tai Chi Chuan. I love its beauty, its relaxation and tranquility, and the way it reflects the Tao.
Recently, Master instructed a martial arts expert to come and teach us Tai Chi Chuan again. The instructor gave us a hint: while practicing Tai Chi Chuan, by shifting the center of gravity alternately between the two legs, the strength of the legs will increase invisibly.
I am so grateful to Master, because once Master was trying to drive up a steep slope. As the road was rough, steep and slippery, and made further impassable by pebbles, She could not drive up. Everyone rushed forward to push the golf cart but I never managed to touch and push the cart -- I ran very hard but was a little bit too slow. I was mad at my incompetent legs which failed me when I tried to serve Master by pushing Her golf cart. Now unexpectedly, my weakness can be improved through practicing Tai Chi Chuan.
A fellow brother told us: "M"Master instructed us to play some light music while practicing Tai Chi Chuan." To improve our health so that we can meditate diligently,
Master has already appointed a "martial art expert" to teach us. Master, Your disciples are already very contented. Further knowing that You are so concerned about the practical conditions of our training, our hearts are filled with an even deeper warmth.
Practicing the martial art seriously, the fellow brothers were originally very rigid, and there was no laughter at all. Observing our stern expressions, the instructor was also tense. Now, with the music drifting in the background, wow! it is a unique sensation. Master's love seems to have dissolve into the music, pouring forth incessantly. Everyone now laughs cheerfully. When the mind is relaxed, the body becomes nimble, and the actions are more loose and gentle. Consequently, we can better appreciate the profound wonders of Tai Chi Chuan.
Master! You can always grasp the vital points of the difficulties in life, and with Your gentle touch, make everything become easy and wonderful. Bestowed with the heavenly grace of living here and savoring Your infinite sacred love that soothes us, we are truly a blessed group of children.
