Falun Gong Widely Praised Before the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from Wuhan, Hubei Province. I began practicing in early 1994. Many people around me have enjoyed improved physical and mental health since they began the practice.
Before I began practicing, I had many illnesses. After learning the exercises, all of these illnesses disappeared, and I felt a dozen years younger. My colleagues all heard that I was practicing Falun Gong, and they saw the miracles of the practice. Since then, many employees of my workplace also came to learn.
In my workplace, one particular person often argued with others without a reason. She sometimes made up sarcastic rhymes to humiliate others. Even she herself admitted that if she didn't yell at someone for a day, she would be disappointed. Even the supervisors did not want to be too strict with her. She had many illnesses that tormented her, and when I saw that she was in pain, I persuaded her to learn Falun Gong. However, I told her she needed to be truthful, compassionate, and tolerant, and that she could no longer yell at others. She gladly agreed.
She then began practicing Falun Gong. All of her illnesses were cured, and she knew even better the great powers of Dafa. I told her to use her time well to study the Fa, do the exercises, cultivate her xinxing, be truthful, compassionate, and tolerant, stop yelling at others, and exercise self-restraint when there were problems.
Since then, in order to meet the requirement of Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance, she puts signs that read "Tolerance" everywhere, such as on doors and walls. At work she wrote "Tolerance" on the palm of her hand. When going to sleep, she wrote it on the headboard of her bed. When walking, she would repeat "Tolerance" to herself. She tried to be tolerant in everything. Since that time, no one heard her yelling any longer.
The husband of a colleague of mine was having an affair. He often beat his wife and wanted to divorce her. Once he even pushed her into a river. Fortunately, another colleague rescued her. When she was in deep pain, I comforted her and suggested that she learn Falun Gong. Since then, she has kept up with Fa study and the exercises every day, and cultivated her xinxing. Although her husband still often cursed or beat her, she kept calm, and did not talk or fight back. After a while, her husband was moved. He asked their son, "How come your mother has changed so much?" The child said, "Mother is practicing Falun Gong. She wants to be truthful, compassionate, and tolerant." He said, "This practice is so good that I want to learn it, too." Their relationship also recovered.
Later, the supervisor of my work unit heard these stories and told me, "This Falun Gong is truly great. Even the toughest person that everyone feared was changed. Also, I tried to work with the family with their problems many times, but it was Falun Gong that helped them out."
My work unit reported these changes to the entire company. At the annual meeting in 1995, the CEO of the company said, "There are Falun Gong [practitioners] working for us. These employees have better health, and they saved a large sum of money for the government in health care and contributed greatly to society!" Everyone in our company then heard about Falun Gong.
