(Clearwisdom.net) During childhood I was a shy and kind girl. I was full of imagination, but I often got sick. Looking at the stars in the sky and feeling lonely, I often wondered what was at the end of the sky. I sometimes considered why people would sooner or later have to die and imagined how nice it would be if people didn't die!

1. Experiencing the Bitterness of Life

After I grew up, I got a regular job. Although I didn't have the fantasies I did as a child anymore, I was still longing for love and a sweet home life. However, my husband turned out to be irresponsible. I always cried at night. Facing my young child, I had to hide all the sadness in my heart so that my relatives would not worry about me.

My long-term depression led me to a serious health issue. My breasts were full of lumps. The doctors told me that it was a severe hyperplasia and that I needed to keep in good spirits or it would turn into cancer. However, I felt extremely sad at that time.

After that, I got weaker and weaker and even had difficulty riding a bike. I took medicine every day but it had no effect, so I stopped taking it. The burden of the family, the loneliness in my soul, and the endless pain made me feel tired of living.

2. The Good Fortune to Discover Falun Gong

Soon after I stopped taking medicine, a colleague who practiced Falun Gong told me, "Take a look at Zhuan Falun. Falun Gong is really good." I readily agreed with her. Actually, when I first found out about my disease, someone else also advised me to practice Falun Gong, but I worried about delaying a cure for my condition and didn't follow through on the suggestion. My mom had a copy of Zhuan Falun that was given to her by my grandmother before the persecution began. However, no one in my home truly practiced Falun Gong. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began slandering Dafa through its state-controlled media. Foolishly believing that the media wouldn't lie, we were deceived by the false propaganda against Falun Gong.

Perhaps because it was my predestined opportunity, I really wanted to read Zhuan Falun from my heart. I went to my mom's house on Sunday and read Zhuan Falun for a whole day. The more I read, the better I liked it. I read until I finished the whole book in the evening. To my surprise, the persistent pain in the affected areas of my body felt totally different. I took the book home with me.

Since that Sunday in September 2000, I have never stopped cultivating in Dafa. I felt good reading the book and kept on studying it, but I still had some confusion. So I went to the colleague's home who had advised me to read Zhuan Falun. She and her husband both practiced Falun Gong. Her husband told me, "Dafa is very precious. Not everybody can obtain the Fa. Obstacles arise to keep people from obtaining the Fa. Only after you overcome it will you really obtain the Fa." Although it was his enlightenment at his level, I really felt enlightened by his words, and all my confusion disappeared at once. My colleague soon taught me how to do the exercises.

One early morning when I first did the meditation, I clearly felt Falun going into my body. It was really a fantastic feeling.

3. Immersed in Master's Grace

After I obtained the Fa, I was eager to study Zhuan Falun and Master's lectures. Every day I strove forward within the Fa and felt more and more the grace and wonderfulness of Dafa. From then on, my life experienced a great and thorough on-going change. The rewards I obtained from the Fa are something I couldn't pay back even with my life. People who don't practice Falun Dafa will never realize that.

(a) Following the Principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance

I had told many lies inadvertently since my childhood. After I obtained the Fa, I measured each of my thoughts with truthfulness. Sometimes I would rather say nothing instead of telling lies, making sure that everything I say is true. One colleague who doesn't practice Falun Gong told me, "I would believe whatever you say, even if you lie to me."

When I used to shop for groceries, I bargained as others do to get a lower the price, and I made retailers add extra after the items were weighed. After I studied the Fa, I learned that practitioners should consider others first. I also realized the Fa principle of gain and loss. I no longer haggled over every ounce like I did before. I neither bargained nor carped, which allowed the retailers to say with deep emotion that there are still good people in the world. I know that everyone who truly practices Dafa would do the same thing.

Regarding my husband, I always complained about him in the past. After I studied the Fa, I understood that there are predestined relationships among people, so I no long complain about him or my fate. I just follow Master's words and treat him compassionately, consider him first, and look within whenever we have a conflict. Gradually my husband also changed for the better.

I also had some conflicts with my grandmother-in-law before I cultivated. After I practiced Falun Gong, I learned that I should be tolerant of others, and I understood more about the elderly. I started to care more for the elderly and stopped haggling over the house with my grandmother-in-law. I got rid of my attachment to benefits and the competitive mentality, which made me feel really relaxed. I just try my best to care for my grandmother-in-law. She often praises me in front of her friends and also supports my practicing Falun Gong.

(b) Becoming Healthy and Walking Out of the Shadow

After I obtained Dafa, my life became more enriched every day. Without realizing it, I forgot my disease. Even at times when I felt uncomfortable, I didn't care about it and still did what I should do. The following spring after I obtained the Fa, my company held an annual physical examination for women. Many of my colleagues were diagnosed with diseases; however, I was told that I was totally healthy--nothing wrong. Within just half a year, my incurable disease that was found by the same hospital had completely disappeared.

Soon after I became a practitioner, I experienced the wonderful feeling of being disease-free. I often sang songs as I walked, although I didn't like to sing in the past. Because I became generous, all my relationships with others went very well. I was no longer shy and did better in my job. It turned out that life could so beautiful. I know that all that is given by Master and Dafa. Life becomes beautiful because of Dafa.

My heart is full of hope. I also want to bring others the wonderfulness of Dafa.

(c) The Whole Family Benefits Because One Person Obtained the Fa

In the past, when I returned to my mother's house, her cares often sat heavily on her brow. She worried about everything of mine, including my health, my personality, and my marriage, even though she could do nothing about them. At the same time, I always laid in bed after I got home and didn't help her with anything.

After I obtained the Fa, I was really reborn. I could finish all the housework, which made my mom happy. Because I obtained many benefits from practicing Falun Dafa, I tried to persuade her to practice. However, she told me, "I haven't heard the clock tick for many years. If I could hear it again, I would practice cultivation." Benevolent Master didn't mind her enlightenment. Later on, my mom could really hear the tick.

After she experienced some inner struggles and Master's hints, my mom stopped her two bad habits--playing Mah-Jong and burning incense for animals such as foxes, weasels, ghosts, and snakes, and finally walked into Dafa. Since then, she has also benefited a lot from Dafa. Although she was already 70 years old, her back pain disappeared.

My husband, who didn't practice cultivation, was once in a traffic accident. All the passengers were injured except him. Observers there at the time said that the seat where my husband sat was the most dangerous, because a long, large iron rod ended up where his head should have been. My husband told me afterwards that, at the moment of impact, he unaccountably moved his head to the side and therefore survived. I told him, "When one person obtains the Fa, the whole family will benefit," and that Master had protected him.

Many of my relatives have also benefited after they understood the truth about Falun Gong and sincerely recited, "Falun Dafa is good." My brother-in-law had an intestinal disease. He had to depend on medicine for many years and didn't dare to have a second baby. Because of Dafa, he recovered and his second baby is about to born. Another relative who lives far from me quit the CCP after learning the truth. He is still living even though doctors told him that he should have passed away by now.

(d) The Soul of Peace

Seeing that many people live just to prove their point or to save face and are deeply lost in the attachments of fame and self-interest, and that many are suffering pain due to their karma, I feel all the more how fortunate I am to have obtained Dafa and Master's benevolent salvation. Everything is given by Master and Dafa. It is Master who saved me from hell, although I was full of karma, and gave me new life. Without Dafa, I would probably have died by now.

4. Wishing that Sentient Beings Be Saved

The evil is still raging, and sentient beings are still being deceived. It is each Dafa disciple's responsibility to let sentient beings know the truth and be saved.

A brave young man from Hebei Province used his real name to announce to the world that he, a young man who was terminally ill, became reborn because of Dafa and that Falun Dafa is good! Although I don't have the courage to use my real name, I, a common Dafa practitioner, still want to use my personal experience and my sincere heart to tell you: "My friends, please firmly remember 'Falun Dafa is good!' Everyone who sincerely repeats that sentence will obtain good rewards. Quit the CCP and all its organizations and you will have a good future! Do not miss this opportunity!"

I hope that your life also becomes beautiful because of Dafa! Please cherish and carefully read each and every truth-clarifying leaflet!
