Fortune That Money Can't Buy
(Clearwisdom.net) I am 63 years old and a practitioner in Linyi City, Shandong Province.
When I was 17 or 18, I caught a chill that left aches in my legs, hips, and arms, and I writhed on the ground when the pain grew intense. Acupuncture and medication had no effect. By the time I was in my thirties, my head spun and my chest felt tight. After going for a check-up, I was informed that I had hypertension, which caused myocardial anemia due to coronary heart disease. When my blood pressure was high, my face became taut and I felt dizzy. My entire chest felt like it was under constant pressure whenever the coronary heart disease kicked in. Sometimes, it was like the agony of a knife-cut.
I had to lie in bed all day, accompanied by needles and medication, and my wife had to do the housework along with preparing my medicines. At the time, our child was young, and all the money of our labors went towards my treatment. Sometimes we had enough money, but when we were broke, we had to borrow from one family member or another. With our child so young and money being scarce, everything fell on the shoulders of my wife. She grew tired of boiling herbs, and her mood turned dark. She often took her anger out on the child, who was beaten frequently. I could only lie in bed, unable to support my family, thinking that life was so painful.
I suffered though this for twenty years, until November 4, 1998, when I had the good fortune to learn Falun Dafa. I studied the Fa and conducted myself according to the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. In about a dozen days, the aches in my legs and hips--all my old problems, disappeared. As I studied the Fa and did the exercises, the tightness in my chest faded and my face no longer felt taut. The hypertension and coronary heart disease healed by themselves. My wife witnessed the benefits first-hand, and immediately started practicing Falun Dafa as well. From then on, my entire family regained our laughter and was bathed in the splendor of the Fa. There are no words to express our gratitude to Teacher.
The debts left from buying medication were not repaid until 2006. Before Dafa, there was not a single happy day in memory. Now, I am free of disease and feel very healthy. It has been eleven years since I obtained the Fa, and I have not been sick once since then. The needles and medicine are things of the past. This is happiness that cannot be bought with any amount of money.
