Master Li Hongzhi Saved Me from Paralysis
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a new Falun Gong practitioner. I started practicing Falun Gong last year after contracting a serious illness.
I developed rheumatoid arthritis a year ago. All of my body joints hurt too much to bear. I looked everywhere for doctors and tried all kinds of medicines. I was examined by both western doctors and Chinese doctors. I also tried all sorts of home remedies. But there was no effect. And, the lining in my two knee joints was gone. My legs were like sticks and could not bend. The doctors told me that I could get artificial joints, but they would cost 50,000 to 60,000 yuan each. Even if I spent all my savings, I would not have enough money to have my joints replaced.
My wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner. I knew the truth about Dafa and knew that Dafa is good. I also witnessed the physical changes in her after she practiced Falun Gong. At the same time, I have been worried for my wife's safety every day, and my fear of the CCP's persecution kept me from wanting to learn Falun Gong. So, I rejected her suggestion to practice Falun Gong.
I was completely unable to walk, paralysed in bed, and could not take care of my daily needs. In order to stop the pain, I took lots of hormone drugs, which resulted in bone disease, loosened teeth, poor vision, and severe joint distortion. I could not bring food to my mouth, and I could not hold up a spoon.
I was only 40 years old at this point. What kind of future was I facing? My wife told me that only Dafa could enable me to stand up again. But, how could I practice in bed? She told me to sincerely recite, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." She suggested I read Zhuan Falun, and told me that Master Li Hongzhi would take care of me and purify my body. My urine was reddish brown and smelled like strong medicine at that time. That lasted over a week and then I was able to stand up slowly. I also saw two spinning law-wheels. I knew Master Li was encouraging me.
I was getting better day by day. When I was able to stand up, I started to practice Dafa exercises. As I continued to study the Fa and do the exercises, I began to walk. My hands, which had previously not been able to lift food to my mouth, became strong and I could lift things that weighed several kilograms. My distorted joints in my arms, hands, and legs all recovered. My skin now has a very healthy color. From the day I started reading the Dafa book, I did not take any medicine. Dafa is really extraordinary and amazing. I really want to thank Master Li Hongzhi.
My family was very happy and my recovery made them understand the truth about Falun Dafa. My mother-in-law and cousin saw Dafa's extraordinariness, and also started to recite, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." Their physical health has also improved.
I want to warn people not to listen to the CCP's lies and in particular not to follow the CCP to persecute Falun Gong. Slandering the Buddha Fa is a serious sin. Don't push yourself and your family into the abyss. As long as one treats Dafa and Dafa practitioners kindly, one will have good fortune. I believe anyone who sincerely recites, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" will have a good future.
