20. My Uterine Tumor, Kidney Disease, Migraines,

And Other Ailments Have All Gone Away

¡¡¡¡My name is Tian Meiyun and I live in Taipei.In late November 1997, I received a phone call from a friend who told me about Falun Dafa. When I read the principal book containing the teachings¡¡of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, the words ¡±A person should return to his original, true self--that's actually the true purpose of being human¡± moved me. Falun Dafa is different from anything I had studied before. When I realized the purpose of being human is to return to one's original, true self, my mind cleared up and I cried with joy for having found the truth. I immediately registered for a nine-day Falun Dafa seminar. I had been sickly since childhood. My husband said to me, ¡±You are taking medication for 300 days out of the year.¡± I suffered from migraines, a syndrome in which I kept seeing flying objects, arrhythmia, twisting of the vertebrae, chronic pelvic infection, a uterine tumor and kidney disease. Neither Chinese nor Western medicine could help me, and I lost confidence in both. I also practiced many types of qigong but my condition didn't improve. I felt hopeless and helpless, and that life was meaningless. In the first month after I started practicing Falun Gong, I read only a few pages of Zhuan Falun every day because my eyes were still sore. However, my body started to change. I had previously suffered from frequent migraines. In the beginning, the migraines continued, and I even vomited. But, after vomiting, my head no longer hurt! I also experienced great changes in my urinary system. I read the Dafa books attentively and did the exercises. On the fifth day I felt as if I were a new person. When I opened my eyes in the morning, I felt the world was beautiful and my body was very light. I straightened my back and was very happy.

¡¡¡¡My relationship with my husband changed from being antagonistic to harmonious and caring. Three years ago my husband took on a project, and unexpectedly we went bankrupt almost overnight. I felt as if my world suddenly came apart. I was angry and bitter that my husband had taken on this project in a field in which he was not an expert. We stopped talking to each other and lived like strangers. After studying Dafa, I tried to walk a mile in my husband's shoes and realized that he was trying his best to provide for his family.

¡¡¡¡If I didn't have this experience, I may not have truly understood the joy and changes after studying Falun Dafa. It enabled me to face sharp criticism in a tolerant manner and to face difficult situations with broad-mindedness and forgiveness. I discovered that I was often stubbornly blaming other people in the past. I used to be aggressive and overbearing, but because of my practice of Falun Gong, I changed my attitude and have become warm and considerate. As a result, I am now a better wife and mother. My anger and bitterness also disappeared.

¡¡¡¡My 18-year-old son is more studious and willing to help others since he began practicing Falun Dafa. His classmates nicknamed him ¡±golden boy¡± and his teachers love him. My 13-year-old son also studies Falun Dafa and conducts himself as a practitioner all the time. I never expected the changes that took place in them. I know that Dafa has taken root in their hearts. I now have more confidence in them and do not worry about them.

¡¡¡¡Through constant study, I became more aware of the profundity of Dafa and my heart grew more steady and content. Whenever a conflict arises, I try my best to look inward to see if I am up to the standard, if I am being just and sincere, or if I am being greedy and attached to something. I try to deal with things with a calm mind and problems are solved easily. I will cherish the opportunity to practice Falun Gong, which is truly a remarkable and wonderful cultivation method.
