Falun Gong - The Bright Light in Our Heart
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a medical doctor. With my 20 years of experience in the medical field, I understand that modern medical science cannot cure many diseases. I have also witnessed many accidents and tragedies. Several of my colleagues died in car accidents. One co-worker was carrying her son downstairs and flipped over the stairway rail. She was severely hurt. The two-year-old child had a ruptured spleen. Another co-worker went with the family on a trip. When they were on a ferry boat, their ten-year-old child fell into the river through a gap in the railing. There was no way to save him. These tragedies made me aware that life is tenuous and unpredictable, difficult to control, and there is so much hardship and suffering.
As I approached middle age I developed several illnesses. It took more than a year for me to recover from broken bones in my left foot. I could not run or jump or stand. I had pain in my hands. Based on an X-ray, it was ossein proliferation of both hands and the bone seam narrowing, for which there is no cure. In my dreams, it was always dark, and I could not find my way home. When I woke up I felt an ache in my heart.
In September 1996 I opened the book Zhuan Falun that a friend gave me. Suddenly I realized so many things pertaining to human life. First, I understood that reincarnation exists, and we still have hope; that good and evil will be rewarded accordingly; that there is a reason for disease, suffering, and hardship, that they are karmic retribution. For human beings to truly change their lives and be truly free, the only way is to walk on the cultivation path. That night I read Zhuan Falun until dawn.
I met a couple at a friend's house one weekend. The gentleman looked very old, with gray hair, and a gray face. He was bloated. I thought he older than 60, but he was not even 50. He suffered from many illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and liver disease. Two weeks of hospitalization had not improved his condition. He wanted to get out of the hospital and practice Falun Gong.
When I saw him again on another weekend I was shocked. Although his hair was still gray, his face looked rosy and healthy. He was a completely different person.
Having done a few days of the Falun Gong exercises made my foot and hand pains disappear. Furthermore, my other health problems--gallstones, stomach bleeding and constipation--disappeared and never returned.
One of my female coworkers turned 28 that year. She did not menstruate and had lost her hair when young. She had had her gallstones surgically removed. A month later she still suffered from great post-surgical pain. I saw she was suffering so much, so I gave her Zhuan Falun. While she read the book the pain decreased. She was able straighten up. An egg-sized, painless lump appeared at the site of the surgical scar. She asked me what to do. I did not know. She then called her own doctor, who told her to return to the hospital. She was afraid of another surgery and went to a group exercise site next to her dorm and participated in group Fa-study and group exercises. The lump grew smaller. Then a small, dark red sac appeared on the same spot. It oozed yellow fluid one night, wetting three towels. In the morning she had wrapped a small towel around her and came to work and showed me. There was almost no more discharge. She went to the doctor's office at work and covered the site with a gauze pad. Within two days she completely recovered. She also told me that she was now menstruating. Because she is a very outgoing and friendly person and her relationship with the managers is great, she gave the managers a copy of Zhuan Falun and told them of the wonder of Falun Gong.
A co-worker's wife was a doctor in the pathology department. Only in her 30s, she suffered from benzene poisoning, which is similar to blood cancer. The illness made her lose consciousness occasionally, but she quickly and fully recovered after she practiced Falun Gong. Now her mother has become a Falun Gong practitioner as well.
Modern medical science cannot explain these miracles. I have witnessed many incidents of people recovering from diseases and illnesses after they practiced Falun Gong. Where I work, almost all of my managers read Zhuan Falun, and many of my co-workers read it now. More than ten people have become practitioners. Every day during the office lunch hour we study the Fa and practice the exercises in the office as a group. We follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. While cultivating ourselves well, we also share the wonders and miracles with our friends, family, and co-workers.
