Dafa Has Given Me a New Lease on Life
I have suffered from a multitude of ailments including chronic erosive gastritis, perennial allergic rhinitis, chronic bronchitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and severe neurasthenia. I had to rely constantly on medication, which provided only minimal relief. In the summer of 1994, I was hit by a car, and the bones in my lower leg were fractured. I was hospitalized and had surgery. In October 1995 just as I was rehabilitated and able to walk unaided, I had to have a radical mastectomy for breast cancer. The excised lymph nodes were mostly dark in color, and the pathology report revealed that 1/3 of the cells had undergone malignant changes. Subsequently, I received chemotherapy, a treatment that exacerbated my rhinitis, bronchitis, and insomnia. I also experienced fever, nausea and vomiting. The chemotherapy reduced my white blood cell counts substantially. I felt weak and dizzy, I couldn't sleep, and had dry retching and diarrhea all night long. I was miserable beyond description. Besides chemotherapy, I also received frequent injections and large quantity of medications to boost my immunity. I laid in bed all day long, and went back to chemotherapy half a year later. During this period I'd have rather died then continued to live; I felt sorry for my family members who had to look after me and work at the same time.
It was in the midst of my suffering, in early 1997, that I found Falun Dafa. The first day after a practitioner taught me the exercises, I felt the Falun revolving around my arms continuously. That night after I finished listening to Master Li's recorded lectures, I felt a warm current coming up my spine, and then spread over my whole body. My cold limbs started to warm up, and my whole body felt light and comfortable. Soon I fell into a peaceful sleep; I did not even need the blankets. This was the first time in the long while since I became sick, that when I woke up I felt so full of energy, and my body felt so light. It was truly wonderful and amazing.
I was completely overwhelmed by the extraordinary and miraculous power of Dafa. Eventually I was able to purchase the book Zhuan Falun after much difficulty and effort. I read it over and over, and could not let go of it. I took the Fa as my Teacher, and seriously gauged myself according to "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" to cultivate. I constantly strived to improve myself, discarding my jealousy, competitive mentality, selfishness, and my bad temper. When conflicts arose, I first looked within to see if I had done something wrong, and if the other party was harmed as a result. I gradually changed and improved, albeit with considerable difficulty. As I studied the Fa, practiced the exercises, and raised my xinxing (mind nature), the ailments I had before all had but disappeared. I grew stronger; walking and work no longer tired me out. After half a year, the result of a complete physical examination showed that my health was completely normal.
The divine power of the Fa has manifested itself through me. I am like a new person; I realize that Dafa has created a new life for me. Sometimes when I see Teacher's picture in the book, I cannot stop my tears. Teacher has given people such a great Fa, and I am one of the many beneficiaries.
I told my story to many people, including my family and friends. I took them by the hand and taught them the exercises, I gave them the precious book, Zhuan Falun, and the exercise music, and wished that they could also have a healthy and wonderful life like me.
For the past 6 years that I have been practicing Falun Gong, I have not taken so much as one tablet of medicine. For an elderly person with advanced malignancy as well as a host of other ailments, it is nothing short of a medical miracle. It may not be readily believed by everyone, but this has indeed happened to me. The fact remains: this Dafa can enable the morality of humanity to rise and people to become healthy in body and mind, and I sincerely hope that more and more predestined people will take up Dafa cultivation practice.
