(Clearwisdom.net) I remember seeing an article written by a practitioner before the persecution began in 1990. She wrote about the relationship with her mother-in-law before and after practicing Falun Dafa. I will try to recall the story from my memory and share it here for practitioners who have a similar problem.

Before practicing Falun Dafa, she had a bad temper and would easily explode. Her husband had two brothers that her parents-in-law treated very well. His parents helped the other brothers to take care of their children and helped with cooking, and never asked for anything in return. But her parents-in-law did not care about her family. When she had a child, she and her husband thought his parents would come to help with their grandson but her mother-in-law did not even come once. She and her husband started to hate his mother and thought she was unfair. One day her mother-in-law suddenly came to her home and asked for money, saying, "I do not want money from my other two sons. I only want money from you to take care of me in my elderly years." She and her husband were so angry at his mother and three of them had a big fight. After the fight the couple cried and decided to cut ties with his mother. They even told themselves that they would not care even if his father died and there would be nobody left to care for his mother. Later, her father-in-law did actually die and no one was taking care of her mother-in-law. She felt justified in her anger.

Later her health worsened and she had many illnesses. The couple spent a lot of money for treatment but nothing helped. By chance she was introduced to Falun Dafa. After reading Zhuan Falun, she knew it is not an ordinary book. Through studying the Fa and doing the exercises, her Xinxing was lifted rapidly. All her illness disappeared. This made her more firm with the practice. Soon both her body and mind had been changed.

One day she suddenly understood that the reason her mother-in-law treated her badly was because she had mistreated her mother-in-law in a previous life. It was karmic retribution. As soon as she understood, she decided to bring her mother-in-law into her home and take care of her. She got permission from her husband and she went to her mother-in-law's home. When her mother-in-law saw her, the mother-in-law was surprised and thought she came for a fight. The mother-in-law asked her, "What are you doing here?" When she replied, "I came to bring you to our home", the mother-in-law said, "That's impossible!" The practitioner replied, "Mother, I did you wrong in the past and I made you angry. Now I'm practicing Falun Dafa and our Teacher told us to be good people. Don't worry. I will take good care of you." Her mother-in-law was touched and kept saying thank you. She told her mother-in-law to thank Teacher instead; because she was only dong as Teacher told her. They went home. Her mother-in-law knelt in front of Teacher's picture and cried, "Thank you Teacher! Thank you Teacher! You saved me. I will study the Dafa too. Dafa brightened my life and give me a happy home."

This story has spread around demonstrating to many people that Falun Dafa is wonderful and , as a result, they wanted to learn Dafa too. Actually many people have started to practice after hearing this story.
