Before and After Practicing Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) When I began practicing Falun Gong in 1998, my body and mind underwent many wonderful changes. Below are a few of the changes I experienced.
In 1990, I suffered from many illnesses and as a result I was forced into early retirement from the Department of Monitoring. When I was only 50 years old, I had to wear very strong prescription glasses whenever I looked at blue print drawings. Now, twenty years later, I can see everything clearly without glasses! I am even able to read the small-type version of "Zhuan Falun" and other reading materials such as Minghui Weekly and Zhengjian Weekly.
Before practicing Falun Gong, all of my hair had turned white; but now my hair is turning black again. One day a man tried to guess my age, saying, "You're almost 60 years old, right?" I told him, "Actually, I am over seventy!"
When I was young, I used to work the night shift at a factory. I felt so tired afterwards that I had to rest for two days. But now, I am very energetic and never have the feeling of being tired. At present, I repair bicycles on the street for a living. I study the Fa and do the exercises once in the morning and once at night. Some nights, I only sleep for three hours yet I don't feel tired no matter how busy I am during the day.
In addition, I used to suffer from recurring toothaches and frequent colds. But after practicing Falun Gong for a short while, all of my symptoms disappeared. I no longer need medications nor injections and my body feels both light and buoyant.
One day two other practitioners and I decided to distribute hundreds of truth clarifying materials in a town many miles away. Halfway there, we noticed that black clouds had started to gather behind us, indicating that heavy rain was on its way. We didn't let it bother us, though, and continued walking straight ahead. Although it rained all around us, the road ahead of us was always dry. By the time we finished handing out our materials, it was already early morning.
On our way back home, we noticed deep puddles of rain water everywhere we looked, yet none of us were wet. These are a few of the many miracles that I've experienced during my cultivation practice.
I know that I would not be alive today if I hadn't taken up the practice of Falun Gong. I sincerely thank Master from the bottom of my heart for his bountiful mercy! Thank you, Master!
