(Clearwisdom.net) I recently began practicing Falun Dafa. From the very beginning, my body experienced profound changes. Without Master's great compassion and continuous protection, my life probably would have ended long ago. It was Master who compassionately saved my life and helped my entire family.

I turned 35 this year. Before I began practicing Falun Gong I was diagnosed with cancer that had already metastasized, and I was given only a few months to live. I went to see doctors in Jinan and Beijing but they all said the same thing. I could not accept this diagnosis, in body or spirit. My suffering could not alleviate the pain my relatives suffered on my behalf, or help my two young children. I suffered great torment from the chemotherapy treatment and spent enormous sums of money. I reached the point where I no longer had hope of living, and I was resigned to dying.

During my greatest desperation, my husband said, "Why don't you practice Falun Dafa (Falun Gong)! Because I had heard the propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party, I didn't really believe he was serious. If the hospital couldn't cure my illness, how could Falun Dafa? Half-believing and half-doubting I agreed to give it a try. My husband asked the Falun Gong practitioners that he knew for a copy of the book Zhuan Falun, and a CD of Master's recorded lectures to give me. I started reading Zhuan Falun.

When I had almost finished reading Zhuan Falun for the first time, on the last page, Master said:

"When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: 'After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!'" (Zhuan Falun, 3/2000)

When I finished reading Zhuan Falun for the first time I was filled with hope and promise. I thought that I really shouldn't die. I must practice cultivation. As long as I take the path of cultivation, my body will be cured. Master said in Zhuan Falun that this is a practice of both mind and body. I read Zhuan Falun over and over again, and each time I discover new truths. With the help of fellow practitioners I learned the five exercises. When I finish doing the five exercises I am covered in sweat (in the past, I never used to sweat and my hands and feet were always cold.) yet I feel very comfortable.

I now continuously read Zhuan Falun and listen to Master's lectures recorded on tape, and every day I steadfastly practice the exercises. Master continuously purifies my body. When I read Zhuan Falun I feel very excited and have an unexplainable feeling of happiness. My only regret is wondering why I didn't start practicing Falun Dafa sooner!

Before practicing Falun Dafa I didn't understand the purpose of my life. The Great Law that Master has taught is so immense, and teaches one to conduct oneself according to Master's Fa principles. One should begin by being a good person and always be considerate of others. The only things I should concentrate on in life are giving up fame and fortune, and being determined to practice the Great Law to the end. I am very lucky and fortunate to have obtained the Fa. Bathed in the purity of Falun Dafa, my heart is filled with endless excitement. If I hadn't become so seriously ill, how would I have entered the door of cultivation and discovered the goodness of Falun Dafa? And how would I have known that the evil party had deceived me with its propaganda?

Master has enlightened me again and again on the path of cultivation with his mighty compassion. He has given me direction through the words from other people and encourages me in dreams.

A few months after I began practicing, I saw a large Law Wheel in the middle of the night. I was half-awake and half-asleep. I saw two hands reach into my mouth and grab an evil spirit. It tried to run but Master pinned it there and smashed it into pieces. I yelled, "mie"! (a term to eliminate the evil) and also yelled, "Master!" This woke me up. My body had been purified and I felt very light. I felt Master removing serious illnesses from my body every few days.

I finally feel as if I no longer have any illness, and my body and mind are both relaxed. With Master's support, protection, and blessing, I was tempered through this tribulation. I was saved by Master's great compassion. If I had not practiced Falun Dafa, how could I as an ordinary person have undergone such a big tribulation? When I was in the hospital, the more they treated my illness the worse it got. Since practicing Falun Dafa I have not needed any medicine or trips to the hospital. My relatives and neighbors have seen the wonderful results that I experienced after practicing Falun Dafa, and my temperament has improved. Before practicing my face was often bathed in tears and my whole body lacked energy. I am now always happy. My family is particularly grateful to Master and Falun Dafa.

Everything is good now. I will be a good person according to the Fa taught by Master. I firmly believe in Master and the Great Law. I will let go of the pursuit of fame and fortune and help Master rectify the Fa by doing the three things well that Master has required of us. Master has saved my life, so that I could obtain the Fa. I have no regrets. I will do things according the principles of the Fa, and the standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I will complete my cultivation and return with Master.

I would like to recommend to those who have been deceived by the evil party that you quickly wake up! Don't listen to the propaganda. Quickly withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers! Everyone has a good side, so please don't persecute innocent Falun Gong practitioners. These words all come from the bottom of my heart.
