(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa has been severely persecuted in China since July 20, 1999. The rumors orchestrated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have poisoned the majority of the Chinese people, and I was one of them. I had evil thoughts about Dafa, refused to listen to the truth, even slandered Falun Dafa and Teacher Li. My wife is a practitioner and would constantly try to clarify the truth to me, but no matter how hard she tried, I just held on to my own notions and refused to listen.

In May of this year, I had a stroke and half of my body was paralyzed. I was hospitalized. My wife again clarified the truth to me and asked me to recite "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance is good." She took great care of me and got me to listen to Teacher Li's lectures. Even though I listened to the lectures with some trepidation, my health still improved. I was then transferred to another hospital. With the transfer, I got distracted. I refused to listen to any more lectures lectures or to recite "Falun Dafa is good." No matter how painstakingly my wife tried to convince me, I just ignored her. That very afternoon, my health took a turn for the worse, and by midnight, the pain was unbearable. The next morning, the doctor did a CT scan and discovered that there was about 60ml of blood in my brain. My life was hanging in the balance. My family and all my relatives were notified of my condition. Everybody quickly came to visit me. A couple of medical specialists were called on to consider the best options to treat my condition. There really were only two options. The first one was to go with the conservative treatment. The second one was to use a more radical approach, which was to operate on the brain directly. My elder brothers deliberated over the choices and made a decision quickly. In the end, they all agreed to go with the conservative treatment since the second option carried the risk of me turning into a vegetable if the operation wasn't successful. Meanwhile, my life was still hanging in the balance because there was just too much blood in my brain.

My daughter used to listen to Teacher Li's lectures and practice Falun Gong with her mother when she was very young. She truly believes that Falun Dafa is good, but she had stopped practicing as she got older because of her schoolwork. She knows that the CCP has been persecuting Falun Gong since July 20, 1999, but she never participated in any of the activities against Dafa. She supports her mother's practice and clarifies the truth and passes out Dafa amulets(1) to people wherever she goes. My daughter lives a long way from home and had to catch a plane back to visit me when her mother informed her of my illness. As soon as she got to my bedside in the hospital, she took out the Dafa amulet from her pocket and put it in my shirt pocket. With tears in her eyes, she gravely said, "Dad, now only Teacher and Dafa can save you. As long as you recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' Teacher will take care of you and your illness will be cured. You must trust what Mom and I say."

At that very moment, as I looked at my wife and my very concerned daughter, I believed from the bottom of my heart that Dafa could save me. Straightaway I started to recite, "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." I just kept reciting them over and over. As my daughter read me Zhuan Falun, my belief in Teacher Li and Dafa became even more solid. My appetite returned. Before that I hadn't eaten for quite a few days. My health started to improve.

As I was recovering, my daughter had two dreams. The first dream was on the fifth day after I started to recite "Falun Dafa is good." She was dozing off and on when she saw Teacher Li sitting by the side of my bed, looking at me and taking care of me. Teacher was full of compassion. In her second dream, my daughter and I were standing on top of a five or six-story building. My wife was on top of another building a few stories above us and looking down at us. Below us was a deep abyss, cloudy and foggy and bottomless. There was a ladder beside our building. Suddenly I fell off the roof, but I caught on the bottom rung of the ladder,. Then it began to lean. My daughter was terrified, but she managed to catch hold of the top of the ladder. She shouted to me, "Dad, hold on tight. Do not let go no matter what. Try to climb up quickly. You will die if you fall." Eventually I got back to the roof with my daughter's help. We were both petrified and covered in sweat. The fright woke my daughter from her sleep. She then related the dream to us.

Her mother then said, "Your dad has been saved. It is Teacher and Dafa that have rescued him." We were all elated and thankful.

I recovered quickly after that. Just before leaving the hospital, the doctors saw that the blood in my brain had all disappeared. The director of the hospital and the doctors all said that my recovery was just incredible and that it was a miracle. However, we all knew that it was Dafa that was responsible for this miracle. It was Teacher who had given me a second chance at life. Now I am fully recovered and I have also started practicing Falun Dafa.

Now I solemnly declare that whatever I have done or said that was against Falun Dafa is null and void. I was deceived by the CCP. I believe that Falun Dafa is good. I support Falun Dafa. I'll do whatever I can to make up for the wrongdoings that I did in the past, and from now on, I will tell everyone about my experience. Please believe that Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Do not be deceived by the CCP's lies. Please renounce the CCP as soon as possible in order to have a bright future.


(1) Amulets -- In China, practitioners sometimes "clarify the truth" by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Dafa.
