Falun Dafa Completely Changed My Life
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a countrywoman from Changli County, Hebei Province. I am 56 years old. Before I began cultivation, my stubborn personality had caused my poor health as well as many conflicts in my family. I was very lucky that I obtained the Fa. It completely changed my heart and my family. Falun Dafa has taught me to be a good person who follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
In the early stages of my life, I was very tough and always wanted things to get better. After I got married, my family was pretty poor and thus I worked as hard as I could. However, because I was too attached to everyday material things, I became more and more impatient. My husband and I were not living in harmony and we fought quite often. I got angry more and more easily, and my health got worse, too. After turning 30, I began to get all kinds of diseases. Since I was doing lots of physical labor, my hip really hurt and I could barely walk. I later went to the doctor and was diagnosed with diabetes and rheumatism. In order to relieve the pain, I took a lot of Chinese medicine, which gave me severe stomach pains, and I even spit up blood. I had almost lost all hope.
In the spring of 2005, during the time I did not want to live anymore, I met a Falun Dafa practitioner in a market. She was telling people about the beauty of Falun Dafa and about how the Chinese Communist Party was persecuting it. She told me that all Falun Dafa practitioners are kind people who cultivate based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and that the practice is being persecuted for no reason by the Party. They even take practitioners' organs while the practitioners are still alive. She told me that it is a heavenly principle that kindness and evil will be repaid in kind, that Heaven will destroy the Chinese Communist Party soon, and that everyone who is a member of it will be implicated and punished by Heaven. Therefore, one must quit all of the Party organizations, including the Communist Party, the Communist Youth League, and the Young Pioneers. If one can also recite "Falun Dafa is great," then he or she will have a bright future.
I looked at the kind face of that Falun Dafa practitioner and listened to her kind words. I was very touched. I immediately told her earnestly, "I will quit the evil party's organizations and I will recite 'Falun Dafa is great' with all my heart." She gave me an amulet(1) and a booklet that detailed the Party's evil, called the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. I really liked it and immediately took it.
After I got home, I finished reading the Nine Commentaries within a couple of days. It was written so well and all it says is the truth. The Communist Party is indeed so evil. I was afraid that the beautiful amulet would get dirty or broken, so I made a small bag to keep it in. Everyday when I went to work in the field, I brought the amulet in the bag with me in a basket. I recited with all my heart, "Falun Dafa is great."
It was magic! Magic really came to me. I could suddenly breath easily, my headache was gone, my mouth no longer felt dry, and I could once again urinate normally. My body felt very warm, and I sweat a lot. It felt as if I was surrounded by an energy field and it felt very good. I no longer lost my temper with my husband.
There are things that were even more magical. Before, I worried a lot about making ends meet and worked very hard. Thus, almost all my hair had turned white. Not long after that day, all my hair became black again. The skin on my face became ruddier, and I looked much younger overall. I thought to myself that, since I now recite "Falun Dafa is great," I should believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and try to be a better person.
Since then I not only feel relaxed, but also all the diseases I had were cured. Because I began to do things according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, I tried to think about things from other people's perspective and I became a much happier person. I live with my husband's family. We are many people living together and there are many conflicts in this large family. Several years ago, I got angry at my mother-in-law because I thought she did not treat everyone fairly, so I did not give her any money for living expenses for three years. Now I know the truth and it resolved all my anger toward her. I now really have compassion toward her, and I gave her the total amount for all three years' living expenses at once. My mother-in-law was very happy and satisfied. She said I am like a different person.
This is how Falun Dafa completely changed my life. Both my health and my spirit benefited. Now whenever there are opportunities, I tell people about how great Falun Dafa is. I tell all my fellow villagers to remember: Break away from all the evil party's organizations and recite, "Falun Dafa is great." Only by doing this can you have a bright future!
