A Non-practitioner's Fair Words about Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) I am an ordinary person and also a party member living in a mountainous area. My wife was afflicted with serious illness in 1998, and none of the many treatments and hospital examinations helped. After she began practicing Falun Gong when someone introduced it to her, her illness was alleviated without the aid of any medication or injections. Now, not only is she free from illness, but she has also changed herself. Before she obtained the Fa, she had a hot temper. Whenever we had a little quarrel, she shouted and yelled at me.
Ever since she began practicing Falun Gong, she often says to me, "I will check myself with 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance' every single moment. I want to become an altruistic, selfless enlightened being who thinks of others first." She became especially tender. No matter what she does, she always cares for others first and never herself. Sometimes I lost my temper, but she tolerated me. The village officials and fellow villagers all praised her for being a good daughter-in-law who demonstrated filial piety. As for the neighbors, she always helped them and never quarreled. Now I can really feel the happiness and warmth of family.
It would be so wonderful if everyone in our country practiced Falun Gong! Families would be happy and harmonious without any conflicts, and society would be stable without any corrupt officials. If the people would pursue virtue, the nation would certainly become affluent and powerful. What people would bring to the society after they learned "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" would be countless benefits and no harm at all.
Although I don't practice Falun Gong, I think those who do are purely good people. What they do is according to what their Teacher says, "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." Does our country fear too many good people? Is enduring, being kind and telling the truth a bad thing? Therefore, here I want to say a few fair words: the country's ban on Falun Gong couldn't be more wrong. All people are able to judge Falun Gong fairly in their hearts.
