Because of Dafa, My Life is Filled with Sunshine
(Clearwisdom.net) Since I started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, Dafa has given me a healthy body and has purified my heart. My heart is filled with sunshine.
In 1994, before I began practicing Falun Gong, I had chronic colitis. At first, my symptoms could be controlled with medicine, but later on, even medicine didn't help. I tried Chinese medicine, western medicine, folk medicine, acupuncture, and various qigong methods. However, all of these failed to cure this "minor" disease.
One day in June 1996, my life took a turn. On that day, my mother went to morning exercises and brought back a copy of the book China Falun Gong. I picked it up when my mother wasn't reading it. I was instantly drawn by it and finished reading it in one day. I couldn't explain it but just felt that this book was very wonderful. Hence I started to practice.
It was a true miracle. Since the first day I attended the morning exercises, my colitis, which had tortured me for several years, was cured. I no longer avoid any foods that are hard to digest. Instead I can eat any food - whether it is raw, cold, hard or greasy. All of my other diseases gradually disappeared. I don't even catch colds any longer.
My mother-in-law is a person with high social status, and she is very overbearing. After I got married, our relationship was became very tense. No matter how hard I tried, she looked down on me and made me feel that I was good for nothing. I was very self-conscious, and my heart was filled with hatred toward her.
After I started practicing Falun Gong, I came to understand that it was caused by our karmic relationship. Knowing that self-consciousness is an attachment, I gradually got rid of it, and my life became brighter. In my family life, I tried to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. No matter what my mother-in-law said, I tried to not get depressed, and gradually let go of the hatred. I now no longer get upset because of others' words, let alone talk back, and I treat everyone around me with compassion. My life is filled with sunshine.
After more than ten years of cultivation, my family has gradually changed their attitudes toward Dafa. My mother-in-law was previously disrespectful of Dafa because she had been deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda, but she has now started practicing Falun Gong.
Thank you, Master for giving me Dafa. It constantly purifies my heart. Because of Dafa, my heart is filled with sunshine.
