(Clearwisdom.net) Prior to cultivating Falun Dafa, I had a poor disposition and was low spirited and lethargic all day long. I had to lie in bed to rest after doing some simple household chores. Last year, after careful examination by the doctor, I was diagnosed to be suffering from malignant carcinoma of the cervix. I felt fearful and helpless. I had no choice but to undergo a series of chemotherapy treatments at the hospital. For three whole months, I felt I would be better off dead than alive. I could only silently endure by myself the frustration in my heart and the tormenting pain from my illness.

I endured many sleepless nights and days of staring blankly at the walls. In my heart, I felt increasingly lost and helpless. I could not control my tears. I asked myself, "What will become of me in the future?" I cannot be a burden to my family anymore. I must find a way to live my life again.

I asked my mother for help. My mother took me to become a Buddhist. She asked me to chant scriptures every day, saying that it would help to reduce misfortune and remove difficulties. Although I chanted the scriptures, my heart was very flustered. I was unable to fulfill my wish to "cultivate." I felt very desperate and hopeless.

The lady who owned the fashion shop opposite my house came to visit me a few times and told me the benefits of practicing Falun Gong. She said that I have nothing to lose in practicing Falun Gong. She also enthusiastically shared with me many real life examples of Falun Gong practitioners who had obtained good physical and mental health.

I was thankful for her good intentions and was willing to give it a try. Thus I took up the path of practicing Falun Dafa.

One month later, I went back for a routine checkup and the doctor told me that the tumor in my uterus was gone! I was so moved that I cried out loud. In such a short time, my health underwent such a drastic positive change. The gratitude and excitement in my heart was difficult to describe with words. I thought to myself that I had met a real Master and a cultivation way that was profound and full of virtue. I must treasure this predestined opportunity that cannot be found in a thousand years and cannot miss this chance easily.

As long as a person is in good health, he will find that his days are enriched and time will pass very quickly. Now that I have practiced Falun Gong for almost a year, I find that my life is filled with brightness. I go to a practice site near my house to practice the Falun Gong exercises every morning. I go to work with light and easy steps. At night, I make use of my time to study the Falun Dafa books together with my fellow practitioners. We read books such as Zhuan Falun and also share cultivation experiences in our daily lives. After practicing Falun Gong, I find that time is always insufficient. The miraculous thing is that the busier I am, the more spirited and energetic I feel. Sometimes I would be tired but after practicing the Falun Gong exercises, I would feel rejuvenated. This was something unimaginable to me in the past.

I feel that it is not difficult to have good health. Of course, besides treasuring this chance, one must continually let go of attachments and truly cultivate oneself.
