Now I Am a Falun Dafa Practitioner
(Clearwisdom.net) My wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner. I have seen the changes in her and the miracles that have happened to her. In her daily life she is always very considerate about putting the needs of others ahead of her own. She follows the principles of Falun Dafa strictly. This makes me think that Dafa is not like an ordinary qigong and that Dafa's Teacher is quite distinct from ordinary people. Practitioners of Falun Dafa are the best people in the world.
In 2000 my wife was illegally sent to a forced labor camp for a year. I felt really bad about this. I knew that she and the Teacher of Falun Dafa were both very good people. One night a practitioner came to me saying that her husband was worried about her going to Beijing. He tried to lock her in the house and removed all the cash from their home. To help her get to Beijing to validate Dafa, I gave her 200 yuan and drove her to the train station.
Another practitioner was wanted by the police for distributing flyers about Falun Dafa. She came to my apartment one night and asked whether she could stay there. Knowing that all practitioners are good people, I did not want her to be arrested by the police. (My wife was still in the forced labor camp at that time.) Hence, I told her that she could stay in my daughter's room.
In February 2002 we set up a truth-clarification materials center in my home. I helped my wife to purchase the necessary equipment and to prepare booklets and other informational material. We coordinated very well with each other. When my wife was in the forced labor camp, she refused to give up the practice, so after she got out, agents of the Chinese communist regime came to our home fairly regularly, intent on taking her away for brainwashing. Despite this continuous risk, our truth-clarification center has operated for over eight years under Teacher's protection.
On July 20, 2003, with Teacher's guidance, my wife asked me not to take our apartment key to work. When I returned home and rang my doorbell, about nine people rushed out from both up and down the stairs (my apartment is on the second floor). When they ordered me to open the door, I told them that I did not have the key. Just then my wife spoke through a small opening in the door, "You are a bunch of hooligans and liars coming here to harass me. There is no way I will open the door." Knowing that their plan was not going to work, they asked me to come downstairs and told me how great the brainwashing "classes" were, and that my wife should attend them. I replied, "If these 'classes' are so great, why don't you ask your own family to attend?" They had no answer. Then they said that I needed to trust the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). That made me angry and I replied, "Only a blind man would trust the Party. During the 16th CCP National Congress, you guys told me to stay home to prevent my wife from going to Beijing and I ended up losing part of my salary." They said that if I got my wife to attend the 'classes,' they would ask my agency to pay me more. I told them that I didn't want more money, nor would I send my wife to be brainwashed. Finally, they left.
Most people know that my wife is a good person. However, police officers repeatedly come to our home and some people wonder why. I take this as an opportunity to explain the facts about Falun Dafa to them. I have watched many DVDs and do a good job of explaining the facts to people. As a result, many of them have quit the CCP.
In April 2009, the left side of my body felt numb and weak. A hospital exam indicated that I had a brain tumor. After staying in the hospital for two weeks, the doctor ordered me to stop smoking and drinking, but I felt I could not because I had been smoking for 40 years. Many practitioners came to tell me that my chance to become a practitioner had arrived. My wife said the same thing. I began to study Dafa every day with my wife. In the seventh lecture of Zhuan Falun, Master said this about smoking:
"In the field of this class, no one thinks of smoking a cigarette. If you want to quit, it is guaranteed that you can do it. When you smoke a cigarette again, it will not taste right. If you read this lecture in the book, it will also have this effect."
I realized that if I wanted to be a practitioner, I needed to quit smoking and drinking. Just this one idea allowed me to quit immediately. Now, many months have passed, and I have not smoked or had any alcohol. There is a clear change in me physically, and fellow practitioners and my wife are happy for me.
Now, I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.
