(Clearwisdom.net) Over the past few decades, relatives from my extended family have been killed by the Communist Party, others have been persecuted in jail to the point of disability, while some have been driven mad. Some lived their whole lives under constant menace and threats, and others under great terror and grief. My father educated me with principles in line with the Communist Party's propaganda. For a long time I was confused and didn't know how to resolve my thinking. On one hand there was the brutal reality faced by my family, and on the other there was the Communist Party's so-called "joy of spring" propaganda.

In 1993 someone lent me the book Falun Gong, which talked about things that I had never heard before. I came to learn that the universe has black and white matter (karma and virtue), and that these two types of matter can be converted into one another. The knots in my heart were untied and I shouted out with joy: "All my hardships were not suffered in vain! Nobody's hardships are suffered in vain!" In 1994 I had the fortune to attend Teacher's fourth series of lectures in Guangzhou. I began cultivating in this system of lofty virtues - Falun Buddha Fa. I shortly encountered a lot of small matters that enabled me to realize and experience that Teacher was watching over me.

1. "The black matter in your brain is gone"

In June of 1994 I went to a friend's house, and her mother said to me: "You should quicken to cultivate, there is black matter in your brain." She was a qigong practitioner and her third eye was open. In July when I had just returned from Teacher's lectures, I again ran into this old lady. She said with surprise: "You've cultivated so well. The black matter in your brain is gone!"

Attending the lectures was a spur of the moment decision, and my friend's mother was not aware of that. I didn't know what state my body was in, so when Teacher purified practitioners' bodies, from the start to the finish I had a slightly foggy, confused feeling. I did as Teacher asked us, which was to think of an illness we had, then to stamp our left feet. I didn't think of any illnesses in time, and I was a little dejected for missing out. At this time, he again asked if there were still people, and said we should do it again and stamp our right feet. I was still unable to think of an illness. I stamped my foot twice as other people did, but I was simply unable to think of an illness. But this time I wasn't dejected. I thought to myself, no need to be anxious, Teacher will look after me. Definitely. Teacher did look after me.

I thought, what can be bought by money is so limited. But Teacher gives true cultivators of Falun Dafa a healthy body, which can't be bought with any amount of money. So, when people became clear on this, they had no regrets in choosing the path of Falun Dafa when the evil began its persecution.

2. Compassion for My Paralyzed Mother

After listening to Teacher's Great Law, I understood how to be a good person. At the time my mother was ill and had become partially paralyzed. She was living in a nursing home, and every day I had to go visit her. I was still working and only had a little time in the afternoon. She was so weak that she didn't even have enough wind in her lungs to spit phlegm, and she often had a lot clinging to her shirt. I folded a stack of tissues for her and told her to use her left hand, which wasn't paralyzed, to remove it, but she wouldn't listen. After some time went by, I started to get irritated and wanted to give her a piece of my mind. But I knew I couldn't lose my temper. It is wrong for an ordinary person to lose her temper when caring for her mother, much less a Falun Dafa practitioner. But a gap had opened up between my rationality and my feelings. My rational side said I should be tolerant, while my feelings said I should not. I felt an inner turmoil.

Suddenly, my mind was emptied and a chunk of black matter was removed. Immediately my demeanor and heart filled with warmth, and I calmly cleaned my mother's face and feet, changed her clothes and did so without complaint.

3. I Only Want Falun Dafa

Today the world's morality is sliding down, bringing one disaster after another. If you offered me mountains of gold I wouldn't want them, they are all things outside my body. I can't bring them with me at birth or take them at death. I only want Falun Dafa. Only Dafa can take me to the shore of happiness.

Currently a lot of modern day legends are playing out. In Hebei, young Qu JianGuo became terminally ill, but a Dafa practitioner told him to recite "Falun Dafa is good; Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is good," and his body recovered completely. In Changde City of Hunan Province, a 58-year-old farmer's wife got lung cancer, and the family spent over 20,000 yuan trying to cure it. She spent 20 days in hospital but her illness didn't get any better, and to the contrary kept getting worse. Just when it seemed there was no hope, a Dafa practitioner lent her an MP3 player which contained Teacher's lectures. She listened very diligently and after she understood its content, she started cultivating the Great Law. After cultivating for 18 days, her coughing stopped, and she has now completely recovered. These things have happened all over the world.

4. Telling People the Facts

The wicked CCP displayed its cruel nature by persecuting Falun Gong, from arresting practitioners and locking them up, to destroying their bodies through torture, even extracting their vital organs while they are alive and selling them for profit. It has reached a point that is completely intolerable by Heaven's laws. For those who have raised their fists under the blood red flag and said they would give their lives to serve the Party, their lives are in danger. In order to rescue them, practitioners spread the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and advise them to quit the Chinese Communist Party, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers. We try every method to rescue them. Some post banners, some deliver pamphlets, some clarify the truth face to face, while others quietly leave information materials on people's doorsteps.
