Dafa Dissolved the Hatred Between My In-laws and Me
(Clearwisdom.net) From the day I got married, my mother-in-law did not like me. Sometimes she even hit and yelled at me. I had strong attachments to jealousy and competitiveness. For several years, I did not speak to my in-laws.
After I started practicing Falun Dafa, my notion changed as I continue to study the Fa. I tried to look within: why were my in-laws so mean to me? Then I remembered Teacher's words:
"Why do you encounter these problems? They are all caused by your own karma. We have already eliminated for you many, numerous pieces of it, leaving only that tiny bit which is divided into tribulations at different levels for upgrading your xinxing, tempering your mind, and removing your different attachments. These are all your own tribulations that we use to improve your xinxing, and you will be able to overcome them. As long as you upgrade your xinxing, you can overcome them. Unless you, yourself do not want to do so, you can make it, provided you want to overcome them." (Zhuan Falun)
I understood that perhaps my in-laws and I had a karmic relationship due to our past lives and that I owed them a great deal.
As I continued to study the Fa and improve my xinxing, I started treating them as I would my own parents in their later years and while they were in the hospital. They were so touched that they started to tell everyone they met that their daughter-in-law learned Falun Dafa and Truth-Compassion-Forbearance and no longer held grudges against them. Other people also told me that my mother-in-law always praised me.
For several years, I have often gone out with several other practitioners and clarified the truth on the streets, in markets and the supermarket, etc. I also reconnected with my business clients from the past and clarified the truth to them. I was able resolved some past issues. For example, I partnered with several others to do business in 2001. Our business was not making any money so we sold it. I could have gotten all my investment back, but my partner gave me 50,000 yuan less. I thought to myself that I should not think too much about personal gains and that maybe I owed her from one of my past lives. Since she must therefore have a predestined relationship to me, I called her last year. She didn't want to see me and kept asking why I wanted to see her. I clearly stated, "It is very important. It has nothing to do with money. I am not asking you to repay the money you owe me." So she picked me up from the station. After we met up, she was very polite and took me to her home. I brought with me a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other truth clarifying material. I helped her whole family withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
