A High School Teacher's Serious Illness is Healed and Twenty of Her Family Members Also begin to Practice Falun Dafa (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wu is a teacher at a high school in Taiwan. In the Fall of 2001, one of her colleagues invited her to attend a Falun Gong truth-clarifying movie. As a history teacher, Ms. Wu knew very well about the true nature of the CCP. When she watched the facts of the fake "self-immolation" staged by the CCP, she cried hard for Falun Gong practitioners' experiences.
Ms. Wu has been practicing Falun Gong since then,and had her severe cancer and other diseases healed. Looking back, she said that she would not be alive today without Falun Gong.
A happy family: Ms. Wu's five family members obtained the Fa
Health cannot be bought with money
Ms. Wu had been healthy since childhood, but she became weaker and frequently had the flu after she had her third child. Due to pressure at work, she developed a serious inflammation in her throat.
For a teacher, it was so bad that she could not talk normally due to the throat inflammation. She visited many famous Western and Chinese medical doctors in Taiwan, and had two surgeries on her throat. But the disease was not healed. The doctors could not guarantee that a third surgery would heal it either. Ms. Wu then took a year off. During that year, she took a lot of medicine, which didn't heal her throat, but badly damaged her other organs.
She took Chinese medicines and Western medicines in turn, and finally she developed diseases of the heart, stomach, kidney, liver and spleen. The most shocking news was that several famous doctors diagnosed throat cancer. After suffering from those diseases, Ms. Wu developed clinical depression. She gave up all hope in life, and stopped going to see doctors.
Her husband tried to cheer her up by buying many things for her. She didn't have to worry about housekeeping or children. But she was so weak that she had to lie in bed all the time. She knew that money could not buy her good health, so she could not be cheered up.
Practicing Falun Gong and renewing life
After watching the Falun Gong video tapes, Ms. Wu's colleagues invited her to practice Falun Gong. So she started doing the exercises during the lunch break. At the beginning, she didn't have any feelings, and she was not very serious about it. She still spent a huge amount of money in temples, hoping the monks could heal her diseases. She also went to the Chinese medical doctors and tried Taichi and Tibetan Buddhism.
After practicing Falun Gong for three weeks, she developed a fever. She felt that her whole body was very hot, but her body temperature was normal. She could not move, but she felt the Falun spinning all over her body. She also saw water waves around her body and golden stones in the water. She realized that it was Master cleansing her body. Later, her colleagues told her that she must study the Fa as well as do the exercises.
She spent several months reading Zhuan Falun, and finally understood the relationship between karma and disease. She also learned the principle of "practicing only one cultivation way," although she didn't leave Tibetan Buddhism completely.
One day, she went to a temple. When she was worshiping the Buddha, she suddenly realized that worshiping gods or Buddha is actually doing business with gods or Buddha and is a pursuit. If a long life and health could be obtained with money, then the rich people and emperors wouldn't die. However, that has never been the case.
She reminded herself of Master's words,
"One should gain things naturally without pursuing them." ("Learning the Fa," Essentials for Further Advancement)
She decided to stop going to the temples to worship and only practice Falun Gong. Her health got better and better, and finally she stopped taking medicine. Before, she could barely finish a class, but now she can teach several classes and still feel energetic.
Letting go of the attachment to personal interest
Ms. Wu wanted to be the best student, the best daughter and the best employee during her life. She developed a very tough personality. She never gave in and always fought with people. After practicing Falun Gong, she learned how to consider others, and follow the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
Her husband's family is very rich. She was also used to the environment in which everybody fights for money. But now, she understands that everything is predetermined. She took money very seriously before she practiced Falun Gong, but now, a billion dollars is just a number to her.
Witnessing the superior power of Dafa, about 20 family members and friends begin to practice.
After practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Wu tried to harmonize her family life. She started treating her sister-in-laws nicely and served her mother-in-law. She stopped complaining about the house work. Gradually, the relationship between she and her in-laws became better and better. Her in-laws also started practicing Falun Gong.
Now, Ms. Wu has a better understanding of the saying, "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities." She realized that as long as she let go of her attachments, her soul would be uplifted and her family life would be harmonious. Now, her husband, children, in-laws and another 20 people in her family are practicing Falun Gong.
Her children had frequently gotten sick, which cost them about 200 thousand yuan every year on medicine. After practicing Falun Gong, their health improved too, and they no longer need to see doctors.
Ms. Wu's husband is a scientist. He was against practicing Falun Gong in the beginning. But later, he saw the change in his wife and children, and he changed his opinion. Although his son was in elementary school, he used the teachings in Falun Dafa to discuss with his father, and often made his father speechless, which made his father feel the uniqueness of Falun Gong. In 2003, Ms. Wu's husband finally gave up Tibetan Buddhism and started practicing Falun Gong.
Ms. Wu's uncle-in-law was a Taichi Master and the chair of a qigong association. One day, he told Ms. Wu that he had also started practicing Falun Gong. Now, Ms. Wu's nephews, parents, aunts--even the drivers for her parents--practice Falun Gong.
Ms. Wu's father experienced a big change. He had intestinal cancer, but now he is very healthy. Before practicing Falun Gong, he made his wife do everything for him, but now he is considerate of her and helps with the house work. Ms. Wu said that her mother is the one who benefits from her father's practicing Falun Gong. Later, her mother also started practicing Falun Gong. The relationship between her mother and her sister-in-law became better and better. Last year, Ms. Wu's mother won the award of "best mother-in-law."
Spreading the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance"
At school, Ms. Wu encourages her colleagues and students to practice Falun Gong, and does the exercises with them during the lunch break. Whenever the human right issue is brought up at work, Ms. Wu will talk about the persecution of Falun Gong. She obeys the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" as a teacher, so her students want to know about Falun Gong.
Ms. Wu says that she will not stop clarifying the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution as long as the persecution is still going on. She has more than 400 students and she feels that it is her responsibility to let the students know about the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and asks them to tell the facts of Falun Gong to their families and friends.
Some students didn't understand Falun Gong in the beginning, but gradually they all saw the beauty of it and some of them started practicing. The experience of one student is very impressive.
This student had a horrible car accident, in which the wheel of car ran over her head. At that moment, the Chinese characters of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" flashed in her mind. The driver, who was about to run away, came back and took her to the hospital. When she recovered, she knew that it was her thought of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" that saved her. After coming out of the hospital, she went back to school with a "thank you" card for Ms. Wu. She waited for Ms. Wu for eight hours at school to say "thank you" to her.
Clarifying the facts of Falun Gong
Besides clarifying the facts at school, Ms. Wu also sends truth-clarifying materials to Mainland China and attends all kinds of activities in Taiwan. During her summer and winter vacations, she flies to Hong Kong and clarifies the facts to the Chinese tourists. She had a little fear the first time in Hong Kong, but she felt the power of Falun Gong when she saw the change in the Chinese tourists who had learned the facts of Falun Gong from her.
Ms. Wu also makes phone calls to China to promote the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and convinces Chinese people to quit the party. Once, she cried when a policeman cursed her with dirty words. She never cried that hard and the reason she cried was because she felt Master Li Hongzhi's benevolence--He is trying to save such bad people.
Ms. Wu said that everybody has a compassionate side, so, as a cultivator who cultivates "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," she will try her best to clarify the facts of Falun Gong to more people.
