Falun Dafa Changed My Volcanic Temper
(Clearwisdom.net) I began practicing Falun Dafa in February 1999. I previously was disrespectful and had a volcanic temper. Whenever I entered someone's home, I kicked the door open rather than use my hands. No one in my village dared to offend me.
When I was in middle school, I once quarreled with my sister-in-law. As the quarrel escalated, I picked up a hoe and hit her in the head. Everyone around at that time was very scared. After I graduated from high school and returned home, I continued having conflicts with my mother and second sister, so I stopped speaking to them. One day I was working on a production team digging a well. Someone in the well asked for a spade. Seeing that my second sister was also in the well, I immediately kicked a spade down into the well. Whenever I think about this now, I feel terrible because there were a lot of people working in the well at the time. I later transferred to a school in my village to work as a teacher, and I often hit my students. On one occasion a female student wasn't paying attention to my lesson, so I picked up a glass chalk box and hit her so hard on the head that it bled.
All the students hid from me, except when they had to attend my lessons. The parents didn't dare report me to the higher authorities.
After I got married, I often had conflicts with my husband about financial problems. My husband respected his parents very much, and he often bought things for them. We fought over that almost every other day, which affected my children's development.
Due to my uncontrollable temper and because I often took advantage of others and didn't suffer any losses, I created a lot of karma for myself. I therefore suffered from many diseases, which no doctor could cure.
I Considered Others First after Practicing Falun Dafa
After I began practicing Dafa, I made a complete change, because Dafa requires that disciples practice cultivation according to the characteristic of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We should consider others first when taking any action, and we should not fight back when punched or insulted. Dafa also requires practitioners to look within when a conflict occurs. I did so and found many of my attachments and bad habits. I then cultivated hard to eliminate them.
I found that I no longer became angry, and my temper improved more and more. All the diseases that had preyed on me for years disappeared. I no longer had conflicts with my husband, and I respected those around me with love and care.
My Relatives All Believed Falun Dafa Is Good and Benefited Infinitely
My relatives witnessed my miraculous change after practicing cultivation, and they all believed that Falun Dafa is good. My parents told whoever they met that it was Dafa that completely changed me, and how I treated them well after practicing Falun Dafa. Although I live 280 kilometers (about 174 miles) away from my parents, I return to visit them three times every year.
My brother-in-law told me that someone often distributed truth-clarifying materials to his workplace and that he always read them carefully and then passed them along to his colleagues. Every time I return home, my brother-in-law asks me for more truth-clarifying materials. Because he believes that Falun Dafa is good, his years of stomach illness has disappeared without any treatment, and his temper has also improved a lot. He often says sincerely, "Falun Gong really is good!"
My parents also firmly believe that Falun Dafa is good and therefore they have benefited. My father had high blood pressure, and his legs and feet were swollen in the past. But nowadays, he has no illnesses. In 2008, my parents laid down 20 mu (3.3 acres) in farm crops. It was unusually dry that year, and all the other villagers gave up managing their crops, but my parents still worked hard on the land. When autumn came, my parents were surprised to find that they harvested more than any previous year. The other villagers were also surprised at their own good harvests. Dafa rewarded all the villagers because everyone believes that Falun Dafa is good and has withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
My son believes that Falun Dafa is good and very much agrees with the Fa principles. He once explained the truth about Falun Gong to an uncle. After learning the facts, this uncle not only quit the CCP, he also donated two hundred yuan to make more truth-clarifying materials. Several months later, the uncle called us, saying that his company had earned 60,000 yuan recently. We told him that it was because he believes that Falun Dafa is good, and because of what he did to save sentient beings that he was rewarded.
