Feeling Grateful to Teacher and Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) At the beginning of 1997, I was very busy at work and under a lot of pressure. I was a detective, and to receive a cadres' recognition, I worked around the clock, ate instant noodles when I was hungry and took naps at my desk when I was tired. I worked like this for over twenty days and was a chain smoker at that time. I caught cold repeatedly, but thought I was young and healthy so I held no fears. My colleagues and I strived for success and achievements in our work.
When I relaxed a little at midnight during an overtime shift, I coughed up blood and collapsed from exhaustion. Cadres and colleagues took me to a hospital, where I lost more blood. The hospital diagnosed me as critically ill within three days. The hospital tried different treatments unsuccessfully. My workplace cadres and colleagues, friends and relatives visited and took turns with family members, including my wife at my bedside day and night. They kept up a smiling facade and tried to comfort me, but cried secretly countless times. They even consulted fortune tellers. They thought of and did everything they could, but I turned for the worse. It appeared that I was at death's door. Although I was afraid, I couldn't imagine dying like this.
On the evening of one of my worst days, a kind doctor gave my wife a book and urged her to read the book to me, no matter if I was awake or asleep. He asked her not to stop. My wife and younger sister kept reading the book to me from that evening until about 6 a.m. of the second day. This was amazing! Truly supernatural! I coughed up blood several times during the first half of the night, but things calmed down during the second half of the night. I no longer coughed up blood.
The next morning, I woke up feeling rather happy and was more energetic. After the doctors' morning rounds, I read the book myself. The the more I read, the more I was impressed with the book. The principles were so well-written! Then, I kept reading until I finished. The book was Zhuan Falun written by Teacher Li Hongzhi. This is in my mind a treasured book that teaches people to be good, and then even better according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Along with reading the treasured book Zhuan Falun, I got to understand more and more of the truth, which is, that a person's goal in life is to return to the origin, instead of pursuing material enjoyment such as money, goods, power and women. A person should tell the truth, act honestly, be kind, think of others first, and be tolerant during times of conflict. I also realized that when a person gets sick or has pain, it is to repay debts from this or prior lives. However by practicing Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), one will also become healthy.
I kept reading the book and practicing the exercises. I was strict with myself and behaved like a good person. I truly followed the principles "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
After I returned home from the hospital, I practiced the five exercises every morning and joined a group Fa study at night.
I firmly stepped into the Falun Dafa practice and came back to my true self. I was so fortunate to become a genuine student of Teacher. I truly realized Dafa's supernatural effect in making people healthy. I achieved a light body and was without illness. In over ten years of practicing Falun Dafa, Teacher and Dafa have given me so much.
I want to tell everyone, "Falun Dafa is good! "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" is good! Simultaneously, I sincerely hope that all good people in China and worldwide obtain Falun Dafa and have a healthy, bright and wonderful future.
