Falun Dafa Healed My Leg and Gave Me a New Life
(Clearwisdom.net) I had a strange disease that affected my leg when I was 12 years old--the muscles in my leg became hardened and stuck to the bones. My whole leg, from thigh to ankle, was affected. I had to be very careful when I walked. It was very painful if anything touched my leg. This condition lasted for several years. One day my third uncle told me that he would take me to my hometown in Shandong Province to seek treatment because he had heard about a doctor who could cure any kind of skin disease. I went back to Shandong Province with him. When he saw my leg, however, the doctor told me that he had never seen such a case before and therefore did not have a cure. Full of hope initially, I became very discouraged. Later my third uncle took me to a hospital in the city. Two doctors told us, "We have never seen a case like this. We don't know how to treat you." They also told me that one of my legs would eventually became longer than the other. Frightened and desperate, I felt that it was the end of the world .We had to go back to the northeast of China. I was miserable.
In 1997, I was fortunate enough to start practicing Falun Gong. At the beginning, I sought to treat my disease through practicing the exercises. However, my condition did not improve. Later I studied the Fa repeatedly. Teacher said:
"But if you want to be an ordinary person, are thinking about getting healed, are wanting this and that, and so on, then forget it, I can't help you. Why? Because you want to be an ordinary person, and an ordinary person is supposed to experience birth, aging, sickness, and death--that's how it's supposed to be. Everything has underlying causes, and they can't get fouled up. Cultivation wasn't originally a part of your life but now you want to cultivate, so going forward we have to rearrange your path, and now we can adjust your body." ( Zhuan Falun)
Wasn't Teacher talking about me? I realized that Teacher had always been giving me opportunities to enlighten to this. But I did so poorly.
I first tried to change my temper. Once I encountered a conflict, I first looked within to see whether I had done something wrong or whether I had certain attachments. Just as Teacher said, when facing conflict, I calmed down and thought it over first, then kindly explained to others. I became calm by tolerating and everything seemed in harmony once I took one step back. I gradually achieved it. I slowly let go all of my attachments and tried my best to conduct myself according to the requirement of the Fa. While changing my clothes one day, I noticed that my leg was healed! The atrophied muscles had grown back and become soft. The muscles in my whole leg had recovered. I was so happy. Without taking any medicine, my leg was cured only through cultivating my xinxing! I am so grateful to Teacher for giving me a healthy leg and a new life.
I know that among Falun Gong practitioners, there are top officials, scientists, well-educated people who have PhD degrees, and CEO's of companies as well as the general populace. Teacher disregards people's social status, rich or poor. As long as we step into this great way, Teacher always treats us with compassion and only asks us to cultivate "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance." Not only should we not be moved when we are offended or beaten, but also we need to cultivate to become a selfless person that always thinks of others first. A person who can follow Teacher's words will become healthy both mentally and physically.
Many doctors could not find a cure for my disease. But through cultivating in Dafa and improving my mind nature, I am completely cured and have started my new life. Please think about it: countless people in China and in this whole world practice Falun Gong. They all become healthy by following Teacher's words. They achieve what modern medicine cannot achieve. Isn't this science? It is the higher-level science! If you can get the precious book Zhuan Falun, you should read it with care, because you will find answers to many of your questions and it can guide you to achieve your goal.
My education is limited and I only went up to the fourth grade. But after practicing Dafa, I can read all the Dafa books. More importantly, I know how to be a good person. It is Teacher who taught me how to treat others kindly. One chooses his own path. I now live a happy life. I don't seek after fame or gain but only think about how to help others.
