A Life Renewed (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) Jinchu is a very pretty girl. The first thing she said to me during the interview was: "Actually, I didn't like cultivation before. I loved the comfortable life and having fun."
Jinchu and her smile
Jinchu was an excellent dancer, but she had always been sick since she was a child. Before she was 30, she married a qigong practitioner who healed diseases with his supernormal abilities. Although her husband healed many people's diseases, he could not heal her. She still had to go to all kinds of doctors and hospitals. She was very sensitive to temperature changes and the environment and got sick very easily. She had low blood iron and had been constipated for a very long time. She also had a very strange disease, and doctors couldn't find the reason--her hands and arms had no strength and she could not carry any heavy items, although the doctors couldn't find any problem with her muscles. Her arms hurt constantly.
Started practicing Falun Gong
Jinchu used to go to a qigong master. One day this qigong master told her: "From my viewpoint, your body is weaker than a 70-year old. I cannot heal you. But I suggest you practice qigong yourself, which may help." Jinchu asked if she could learn qigong from him, but he refused because she lived very far away. Jinchu didn't know what to do, because all the qigong classes were very expensive. This qigong master, then, gave her a flyer about Falun Gong. He said: "Why don't you go practice Falun Gong. One of my friends tried it and felt very good. Moreover, Falun Gong is free."
Then, Jinchu made contact with Falun Gong practitioners. She attended a Falun Gong workshop, but two days later she dropped out, because she was lazy. The impression she had about the workshop was that she gained energy to move her arms and do the first set exercise with practitioners after one day. Later, because she could not bear the pain from her diseases anymore, she called the Falun Gong practitioners again. She didn't know that her life would be changed forever because of this phone call.
Cultivating Falun Gong diligently
Jinchu was a good dancer. Her body was very flexible, so she didn't think that double-lotus meditation would be a problem for her. However, she just could not do the double-lotus no matter how hard she tried. She didn't understand why, but she didn't want to give up. During the first week, she felt a lot of pain. On the seventh day, she sat in the double-lotus position for almost 30 minutes. She felt that she had reached the maximum, but still didn't want to give up. She endured the pain and sweated a lot, but finally she passed out.
Her legs were still in the double-lotus position, when she fell over. With fellow practitioners' help, she regained consciousness. She had been constipated for a long time, but as soon as she woke up, she had to go to the bathroom immediately. What surprised her was the problem of constipation was gone forever since then.
Jinchu practiced more diligently. Her husband gave her a massage every day. But one day, as soon as his hands touched her body, he felt something different. He asked Jinchu what she had been doing, because her body always felt empty and weak before, but today it felt very solid, strong and full of energy. He asked what was going on?
Jinchu was surprised too. She went to the bookstore and bought a copy of Zhuan Falun. Cultivation of Falun Gong improved her health and reduced her need for medicine. She used to go to the hospital three times a week. Two months after she started practicing Falun Gong, she didn't have to go to the hospital any more. She had been very much afraid of cold weather, but she still came to the exercises site to do the exercises even in the cold winter. Jinchu, a person who had never done anything persistently, went to the exercise site during the whole winter and never missed a day.
Assimilate to the Fa
Falun Gong, which teaches "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance", eliminated Jinchu's sickness karma and renewed her life. So, although she still felt pain in her legs when doing the sitting meditation, she never gave up. What bothered her was that she could not even sit in single-lotus position for a long time. She cried and asked herself: "Others can sit in double-lotus for an hour, but I cannot even sit in single-lotus for very long. What is wrong with me?" She cried but decided to train herself. The duration of the sitting got longer and longer and one year later she was able sit in double-lotus for an hour. One day Jinchu rode on a motorcycle to the exercise site. On the way a question jumped into her mind: "How come I feel so comfortable now?" Then she asked herself: "When did I start riding on the motorcycle? How come the hot sun and cold wind do not bother me anymore? How come I can control my hands as I wish and control the wheel of the motorcycle? How come I don't remember the last time I went to the hospital?" She then realized that her life had been renewed completely.
Cultivating Falun Gong renewed Jinchu's life and helped her understand the purpose of life. She started being considerate to others. More importantly, she started paying attention to her fellow practitioners who are being persecuted in China. Now, she clarifies the facts of Falun Gong on the Internet and helps others to obtain the Fa. One day her husband found out what she was doing on the computer to expose the Chinese Communist Party's brutality and rescue Falun Gong practitioners. He was worried. Jinchu told him: "I must do this. I must clarify the facts of Falun Gong to the people who have been deceived by the CCP. Falun Gong renewed my life, so I must protect its reputation and rescue my fellow practitioners. My health is restored and I live a dignified life now, so I must follow my Master and do what I should do."
Jinchu smiled and told me how lucky she is. A girl who used to live a lazy and messy life and just liked having meaningless fun, obtained Dafa. She felt very honored and lucky.
She told me what she is cultivating is a great Fa, which taught her what is right and what is wrong. Before cultivating, she didn't have a clear moral standard and her life was empty. Her friends said that Jinchu became a completely different person. She became calm, honest, profound and considerate. Jinchu told me that her wish is to spread Dafa in the world so that the moral standard of the whole human society can be restored. She is willing to devote her whole life to cultivation, getting rid of her attachments, and striving forward diligently on the path of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
