(Clearwisdom.net) I began practicing Falun Dafa in June 1996 because of a predestined relationship. Before I started to practice Dafa, I suffered many illnesses including a kidney stone, myoma of the uterus, diabetes, and hypertension. I was admitted to the hospital every year. In 1986, I had a hysterectomy. Illness forced my early retirement at the age of forty-five. As soon as I started to cultivate in Falun Dafa, Master purified my body. My illnesses disappeared and my body felt very comfortable. More importantly, I understood the meaning of life.

On July 20, 1999, former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin and his regime started to persecute Dafa and prohibited anyone from practicing Dafa. In September 1999, my fellow practitioner and I went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa and tell the authorities that Falun Dafa is good. We returned home safely. On March 4, 2000, I was arrested and detained in a drug rehabilitation center for 69 days because I continued to practice the Fa and simply wanted to be a good person. In July 2000, I returned to Beijing to validate Dafa, then stayed at a fellow practitioner's home. On August 11, 2000, the police broke into the practitioner's home and arrested me. I was not afraid. In my heart I asked Master to help me and then I walked away from detention safely.

The local police issued a nationwide arrest warrant for me. For the next five years I was forced into homelessness and destitution. However, when I look back on the path I have walked, every step has been under Master's benevolent protection. Every time I was in danger, I was able to walk away safely. Wherever I went, I promoted Dafa, clarified the truth and helped save people.

Recently, I enlightened to the understanding that I should go back to my home to clarify the truth better and save more people in my area. The old forces arranged this persecution and forced me to leave my home. I firmly negated the old forces' arrangements and went back home with dignity.

My whole family started to negate the persecution. My relatives who are also practitioners (that is, my second elder sister and my niece's entire family), other practitioners in my hometown and from other areas all helped me to send righteous thoughts to eliminate the dark minions and rotten demons that persecuted us.

The police asked me to go to the police department to explain why I was homeless. I enlightened to the understanding that it was an opportunity for me to save them, to ask them to stop the persecution of Dafa and Dafa disciples and not to be accomplices of the Jiang regime anymore. I went back home on September 5. Back in my hometown with other practitioners I now validate Dafa, save the world's people and assist Master to rectify the Fa in the human world.

Every practitioner's situation is different, and we cannot make generalized statements regarding whether or not practitioners forced to leave their homes should return. Let us study the "Fa" well and follow Master's teachings to clarify the truth and save the world's people.
