New Practitioner Grateful for Relief from Rheumatism
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a new practitioner from Hebei Province. I used to suffer severely from rheumatism. My condition did not improve despite many visits to different hospitals. I felt such pain constantly that I contemplated suicide.
One day, a relative came to see me. I asked him if he knew of any cure for my rheumatism. This relative was practicing Falun Gong. He said, "I don't know any. But I can tell you, I used to be sick and just couldn't find a cure. But, soon after I began to practice Falun Gong, all my symptoms disappeared. If you believe me and want to learn, I can give you a book, Zhuan Falun. After you read the book and if you still want to learn, I can teach you." My relative also told me that this book is a heavenly book. After he left, I started reading Zhuan Falun.
Even before I had finished reading Zhuan Falun once, my condition started improving. Without knowing it, my rheumatism was cured after I finished reading the book.
One day, a friend called me. He said they were missing one person to play Mahjong and asked me to be one of the players. So I went. That evening, I began to feel uncomfortable and it was just as if my illness had returned. Then, my when my wife asked what I had done that day, I realized that I shouldn't have played Mahjong.
Since then, I stopped playing Mahjong and gambling. Soon, my body returned to normal and I worked by picking up and delivering goods.
One day after work, I was hurrying home. As I made a turn at the bottom of a hill, a big pig of over 200 pounds was on the side of the road. There was no one around. I thought to myself, "Who owns this pig? I better not let someone take it to their own home." So, I parked the car and waited for the owner to show up. Ten minutes, 20 minutes went by and after almost an hour the owner finally showed up. I returned the pig to the owner. The owner wanted to pay me in gratitude. I told him, "If I wanted your money, I would have taken the pig to my house." The owner said, "Thank you very much, I have met a good person today."
Afterward, I regretted that I didn't tell him that I did it because I learned Falun Dafa. If it wasn't because Master saved me, who knows what condition I would be in. What excuse do I have not to validate Dafa? Since then, when others ask me how my rheumatism was cured, I say, "From practicing Falun Dafa. It was Dafa's Master who cleansed my body and eliminated my illness karma."
I don't know how to express my gratitude toward Master.
