My Stubborn Brother Now Understands
My older brother was once very healthy. He weighed over 90 kilograms, and enjoyed playing basketball and soccer. In 2006, he contracted gastric carcinoma and became pale and thin in a short period of time. He lost his appetite and, at a weight of only 65 kilograms, he appeared old and feeble.
Two years ago, I went to my brother's house to tell him about Falun Dafa, and to persuade him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The first time I went to his house he was smiling, but he was sarcastic in response to my words. He did not quit the CCP. The second time I went to persuade him to quit the CCP, he said to me solemnly, "I applied to be a CCP member of my own will. Now you are asking me to denounce my CCP membership and contradict myself. It's better that I do not quit." When I approached him a third time he became angry and said, "In the future, if you come here to see me, I will welcome you. However, if you come here to tell me about Falun Gong, then you'd better not come."
My brother drove me away, but I was not annoyed. I saw that he was pale and thin, so I asked him to see a doctor. He said, "Not to worry. The doctor said that it was just a large stomach ulcer."
When I returned home, I examined myself again and again. I found that I had human sentiment and was too anxious, rather than truly caring for my brother. That was why I was unsuccessful in persuading my brother to quit the CCP even after three visits.
A few days later, my brother went to the Shenyang Army General Hospital and was admitted immediately. The doctor said he needed surgery right away. By the time I arrived at Shenyang after hearing this news, the surgery was done. When I went in to see him, he looked at me feebly. I whispered in his ear with sincerity, "If you recite, 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is good, you will surely recover." He nodded.
At the same time, I sent forth righteous thoughts and cleansed the evil elements that were interfering with my brother.
Three days later I went to see him again. He said he could not be discharged from the hospital until he had regained normal stomach functioning. I was wearing a Dafa pendent necklace, and when my brother saw it he asked what it was. I told him it was the "amulet for life." My brother said he would like to have one. After wearing the necklace for one day his stomach began functioning quite normally. There were several patients who had surgery the same day as my brother, some of them younger than he. They were not able to recuperate as quickly as he. In no time his stitches were removed and he was released from the hospital.
After this experience my brother quit the CCP. He also accepted the copy of Zhuan Falun that I gave him. Now my brother has recovered very quickly. His weight has increased by more than 10 kilograms. He can now ride his bike to the market to buy groceries. I sincerely thank Teacher and Dafa from the bottom of my heart.
More People Awaken to the Truth
In order to "paint their faces with gold" by holding a "political Olympics," the CCP has used all methods and means available. All factories, mines, schools, enterprises and administrative units, as well as all streets and communities, were intimidated and disrupted by the CCP in the run-up to, and during the Olympics. The Olympic Games, which symbolize justice, peace and freedom, have been made into " The Games that Disrupt the People".
Before the Olympics Games, the privately owned enterprises in Zibo City were threatened with the discontinuation of their operations under the pressure of the higher authorities. Many meetings of various sorts took place continuously. A few days ago, during an employee meeting at a private enterprise in Zibo City, the workshop director emphasized that during the Games everyone must perform well at work. They were also told to go home and obediently watch the Games, and that they should not go out. The director also said something to slander Falun Dafa. At this time, a Dafa practitioner in this factory immediately stood up and said, "You should not slander Falun Dafa and my Master!" Immediately following him a non-practitioner employee also stood up without hesitation and said loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" At this critical moment, this person chose to stand on the side of justice. The director was shocked and quickly changed the subject.
Later, the director went to see the Dafa practitioner and apologized to him saying, "I did not deliberately say those words. I was under pressure from the 'higher-ups.'"
