(Clearwisdom.net) Although I don't practice Falun Gong, I support its practitioners, and I have sympathy for them because they have been persecuted for their belief.
I saw a lot of news on the Internet about World Falun Dafa Day on May 13. I thought, "Today is a special day. I should send good wishes to all of my friends who practice Falun Gong and to Master Li Hongzhi." I sent the following message to overseas practitioners: "Best wishes to all Dafa practitioners and Master Li Hongzhi. I hope that everything goes well for you."
As soon as I sent the message, a miracle happened--my headache suddenly disappeared. During the previous several days, I had been in a bad mood, felt dizzy, had a headache and poor appetite, was bloated, my shoulder and knee joints were sore, and I could not sleep. Suddenly, all these symptoms were gone. Since then, I have been able to sleep well, and I have felt great. During the first few moments, I thought it was an illusion, but I shook my head several times to test if my headache was truly gone, and it was.
As a medical doctor, I consider myself very cautious and intelligent. I used to only consider outcomes. When this happened, however, and I could not explain my instant recovery with ordinary rationale, I spent a lot of time contemplating the occurrence.
I previously used a variety of methods to relieve my headaches, including jogging, walking, taking deep breaths, riding a bike, and standing in a particular stance. I almost started taking medicine. Later, I tried a relaxation method and felt slightly better than with other methods. However, as soon as I stopped doing it, my headache and all my other discomforts returned.
While I was trying different methods, I had sympathy for Falun Gong practitioners, because they are my friends and family members. I have never seen them display any of the bizarre behaviors depicted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). According to the CCP propaganda, practitioners commit murder, poison others, commit self-immolation, and are mentally unstable. I have not observed any of my practitioner friends engage in such acts. On the contrary, they are all peaceful and kind.
I am truly amazed by what happened. It is incredible. I cannot describe my feelings in words. My head feels just fine now. I have learned so much from this incident, and all I did was to send my good wishes to practitioners and Master Li.
I hope that everyone will listen to Dafa music and chat with Dafa practitioners whenever they have a chance. You don't have to practice Falun Gong, but you will benefit by learning about Falun Gong and by knowing practitioners. You will gain a brand new understanding of Falun Gong. I am a good example.
I once saw a senior citizen who was nearly 90 practice the Falun Gong exercises at Taiwan Father Memorial Hall. He stood there for one hour, and he looked so healthy and energetic. I hope the tourists from mainland China can go there and visit with practitioners.
There are many health issues that Western medical science cannot explain. We have to admit this because the unknowns outweigh what we do know. The problems that need to be solved outnumber the questions we have answers for. This world is remarkable, and there are many things we don't have explanations for. I feel very humble.
Lastly, I want to thank Falun Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi.
