Falun Dafa Continuously Blesses My Family
(Clearwisdom.net) Family is my most important cultivation environment. I've treated members of my immediate family and my in-laws very well. They witnessed the miraculous power of Falun Dafa after observing the changes in my body and mind. My mother, husband, daughter, brother, and parents-in-law obtained the Fa one after another, and my son-in-law has read Zhuan Falun. Recently, my sisters-in-law also obtained the precious book Zhuan Falun. My oldest sister-in-law lived in the countryside and was initially deceived by the communist party, so she was very much against us practicing Dafa. Now, she supports my oldest brother's practice and asks for the latest truth clarification materials from us. With the exception of one person, all 44 people in my family have quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Falun Dafa has blessed my family with happiness and health.
1. My Mother-in-law Learns How to Read
My mother-in-law is 89 years old now. She obtained Dafa in 1998. She couldn't read at first, so she watched Master's Fa-teaching videos or asked my father-in-law to read the Fa to her. Later, my father-in-law also obtained the Fa. However, she was eager to read on her own, so in her spare time, she asked my father-in-law to teach her how to read. In less than one year, she could read the book, Zhuan Falun.
At that time, she frequently studied the Fa, and she persisted in going to the practice site to do the exercises every day. She disciplined herself by the standards of a cultivator, and she recovered from all her illnesses.
After the persecution was launched on July 20, 1999, my in-laws stopped practicing Dafa because of the pressure from the neighborhood committee. Very soon, their old illnesses came back again, and their health was failing. My mother-in-law deeply regretted that she stopping practicing during that period of time.
Since 2007, every Tuesday we've studied the Fa together with her. Last March, she was diagnosed with esophagus cancer. Since she was relatively old and not strong enough for surgery, she could only stay at home for recuperation. At that time, she relied on an oxygen tank to maintain normal breathing. She also had so much difficulty swallowing that she ate very little. My 90-year-old mother, who is a practitioner, went to see her. My mother said, "Why don't you recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and place your trust in Master?" Shortly after my mother left, she had difficulties breathing again. But she remembered my mother's words and she recited repeatedly: "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" When my sister-in-law was about to give her the oxygen again, her breathing returned to normal and she told my sister-in-law: "I'm feeling much better now. Now I don't feel suffocated and I don't need the oxygen." After that, both her breathing and eating returned to normal, and she eventually recovered from the cancer.
2. No One Believed That My Mother Is Ninety Years Old
One day in February 1997, after I obtained the Fa for one month, my mother also started to study Dafa.
After fourteen years of cultivation, although she is ninety years old, my mother still walks with quick, light steps and her face is rosy with health. Even her hair that used to be white returned to being black. My mother keeps our mission to save people foremost in her mind. Whenever she has an opportunity, she clarifies the truth to people. Whenever people ask her how old she is, she lets them guess, but they usually guess about seventy. Then she tells them: "The reason why I look so young is because I practice Falun Gong. Remember that 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', and you'll be blessed."
Just after the persecution began, when my mother went to the practice site to do the Falun Gong exercises, people warned her about the practice being forbidden. My mother said, "Such a good practice is forbidden? If you don't allow me to do the exercises here, I will do them at home!" So she returned home and studied the Fa and did the exercises every day. One day, two police officers came to her house and asked her, "We heard that you practice Falun Gong. The government has prohibited it, why are you still practicing?" My mother wasn't afraid at all, and she said to them with a smile, "Falun Gong is a cultivation of the Buddha School and teaches people to be kind. You shouldn't believe the CCP's lies being repeated in the news, it's all fabricated. I used to take a lot of medicines, but now I am eighty years old and I don't have any illness. Just take a look at me. Don't you think this practice is good?" After that, they never bothered my mother again.
3. My Eldest Sister Remained Uninjured After a Car Accident
After the persecution began, my eldest sister worried about me and my mother. Every time when we talked about Falun Gong, she was afraid and didn't allow us to explain any further.
Beginning in 2005, I often tried to convince her to quit the CCP, but she wouldn't tell me what was stopping her. One day in 2007, when I talked with her again about quitting the CCP, she quietly thought for a while and then agreed. I gave her grandchild a Falun Dafa symbol and taught the child to say "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." She watched, smiling.
At first, even though she had quit the CCP, she was uncertain about Dafa until later, when she had a car accident which made her fully believe in the miraculous power of Dafa. In the summer of 2008, she took her grandson downstairs to play. Then the child wanted to pee and my sister took him to the side of the road. Just at that time, a car that had been parked on the roadside suddenly backed up and hit both of them. The car struck her in the leg and the child in the ankle. When they were taken to the hospital, my sixty-year-old sister and her two-year-old grandson only had very light bruising on their skin. She realized that she had been protected because of her positive attitude towards Dafa and that she had quit the CCP.
4. My Eldest Brother's Cancer Disappeared
In November 2007, my eldest brother was diagnosed with advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma and it had already spread into his brain. Already sixty years old and left with few choices for treatment, he was depressed every day. I knew that only Master could save him. So my husband and I decided to bring my brother to live with us, study the Fa with him and teach him to do the exercises.
The third day of the chemotherapy, at midnight his nose started to bleed profusely. When he lay down again, there was a voice telling him that everything he was experiencing was good, that the bad substances in his nose were being cleaned out. When my brother told me about this, I was really happy for him, but he was concerned. Because he had just begun studying the Fa and it was hard for him to place full faith in Master, I went with him to the hospital to have an examination. The doctor couldn't find any evidence of the tumor anywhere, and she was really surprised. I quietly told the doctor that my brother had just started to practice Falun Gong. She was amazed and encouraged him to keep practicing. After this, my brother became more confident in practicing Dafa.
Although his tumor was gone, the cancer cells were still there, and my brother couldn't forget about it. I often told him, "Leave yourself to Master, keep studying the Fa and doing the exercises. Many people who were very sick recovered after practicing Falun Gong. As long as you are truly determined to cultivate, you will also recover." So I accompanied him to the chemotherapy sessions but also helped him to improve in cultivation. Gradually, his anxiety abated. Other people who were undergoing chemotherapy couldn't even drink water afterward, and they were very skinny and weak. My brother's chemo-activity level was three times as high as normal. Some patients became so sick that they gave up in the middle of the treatment. But my brother didn't have their symptoms at all, and he seemed to be very healthy. He had made friends with the other patients and they were amazed by his health, so I told them that my brother had started to practice Falun Gong. Most of them eventually quit the CCP.
After one year, the hospital wanted my brother to have another examination, and he was given a clean bill of health. When I told my family about the miracle that my brother had experienced, they were shocked. I told them, "Falun Dafa saved my brother. If you remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', you will also be blessed. "
5. The Greatness of Dafa Amazed Me
It has been 14 years since I started to cultivate in Dafa. In the depths of my heart, I know that it isn't easy to obtain the Fa and I must cherish this opportunity.
January 2, 1997 was the most important day in my life. That day, I listened to Master's lectures for the first time. It was also the day that I decided to cultivate in Falun Dafa. I borrowed videotapes of Master's Fa lectures in Jinan. Master's simple explanations helped me to understand many things that had puzzled me before. I became excited and only had one thought at that time: The Fa is so good! At that moment, I felt a force pulling my head backwards. After I sat upright, my neck moved backwards several times. I was a little nervous, but when I touched my neck, I was surprised to find the osteophyte in my neck had disappeared and it no longer hurt. Right after this, the osteophyte in my back and knees also disappeared. At that time, I was astonished but I didn't know that Master was purifying my body. In a span of a few minutes, the osteophyte in my neck, back and knees that I suffered from for many years was cured by Master. It was so amazing! I wanted to tell everyone to study Falun Dafa!
After I obtained the Fa, Master has constantly protected me and given me hints. I remember one year after I started cultivation, I still cared a lot about personal interest and fame. Once, one of my certificates of honor was written with another person's name and sent to the wrong person. Although I knew that I was a practitioner, I just couldn't pass that test. My four-year-old niece came to my house and walked around me, and suddenly she said to me, "Auntie, there is a child in your tummy, and it's so pretty." I was surprised--had I cultivated an immortal infant already? Why did Master have her tell me this? I suddenly realized that this was to ask me to overcome my attachment to personal interest and fame. I had already cultivated an immortal infant, but I still cared so much about fame. How poorly I had cultivated! Soon after I put my attachment down, my supervisor had the certificate corrected and sent to me.
Master, thank you so much! What you have given our family would take several days and nights to list. I can only follow Master's requirements and cultivate diligently. In this final, limited time, I shall save more people, fulfill my prehistoric vow and return home with Master.
