(Clearwisdom.net) A Falun Dafa practitioner in his 60's lives in my hometown. He's a medical doctor. I always visit him when I visit my hometown during holidays. He has told me some of his cultivation stories and life experiences. These stories are very encouraging and let me see my own shortcomings. They also make me feel the urgency of cultivation and saving sentient beings.

I. This Lifetime Comes for the Fa

This practitioner started to learn medicine when he was eight years old. At that time, his medical teacher was over 70 years old and was detained by the CCP during the cultural revolution. The teacher was famous not only for his medical skills, but also for his talent in the martial arts and other practices. The teacher not only taught my friend all kinds of medical skills but also taught him martial arts and an obscure form of cultivation practice.

When this practitioner was young, he could do one hundred push ups continuously with just three fingers on one hand, and he could also squat down and stand up on just one foot eighty times. When he started to learn medicine, he often walked on a dark path in countryside without light, as country doctors often see the patients at night. Later the teacher wanted to teach him skills to make things disappear, such as making food, dishes and fruits etc. vanish. Though the practitioner was young at that time, he knew these things were not righteous ways and eventually won't do any good for himself and other people; therefore he refused to learn them. The teacher then tried to force him. He took a box of rice and asked the practitioner to say a number, and then let him grab a bunch of rice at will. The result was that the number of rice pieces he grabbed was the same as the number that he said in advance. He did it three times, and the result was the same. The teacher said, “This proves that you are predestined, you must learn.” However, this practitioner made up his mind and refused to learn no matter what, and the teacher had to give up.

When he was young, one of his relatives was a government official who worked hard to get him to join the Communist Young Pioneer's League and Communist Party. He was also promised to be directly promoted to be an official in the township government and to get promoted later to the County level; however, he firmly refused to join the League and the Party or to become a CCP official.

In the 1970s, the teacher told the practitioner that he would only live until 1997. In 1988, this practitioner got lymphoma and had surgery. The medical professor said he had nine years to live and that his last year would be 1997.

But in 1997, he discovered Falun Dafa and became a practitioner. Over ten years has passed since then, and the practitioner has experienced many changes. The incurable cancer diagnosed by the hospital disappeared.

II. Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions

In the spring 2000, the practitioner traveled to Beijing to appeal. In the Beijing train station they checked ID a total six times both ways. The people in front and behind him were all checked, but the police skipped him. He said, “At that time I had just one thought in my mind: you cannot check me!”

Around 2005, his younger son was stung by a bee and his whole face became badly swollen. His wife was not a Falun Dafa practitioner at the time and was shocked and scared. The practitioner said, “It'll be all right” and asked his son to do the first Falun Gong exercise. As he did the exericise, his face cleared up completely. His wife stood next to his son and watched the change on his face, again witnessing the wonders of Falun Dafa. She has now become a practitioner as well.

Once the practitioner was arrested while clarifying the truth. In the police station he talked to the police and government officials about the wonders of Falun Dafa. The Director of the Society Security shouted, “Today I'm the decision maker here, you won't even think about going home, I'll detain you in the detention center.” The practitioner said with a smile, “I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner, you're not the decision maker, I am. I will go home today.” Later the director called the county Bureau of Public Security and wanted to send the practitioner to the detention center, but he could not reach anybody after multiple calls. The practitioner had been sending righteous thoughts to stop and deny the persecution, and he clarified the truth to all the people passing by.

In the afternoon the Secretary of the town CCP committee came. He took a look and said, “You can go home.” The practitioner turned back and said to the director with smile, “See, I said I'm the decision maker.” There were many police and government officials in the room, they all laughed quietly.

III. Do the Three Things Well and Honor the Oath

This practitioner has insisted on sleeping only four hours each day during the years since the persecution began. He practices at the designated time each morning, insists on studying the Fa with a calm mind, sends forth righteous thoughts, clarifies the truth and helps people quit the CCP. He is a doctor by profession, and he tells every patient to remember “Falun Dafa is great, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good”, and asks them to quit the party. In these years countless people with predestined relationships have heard the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa from him. Three years ago he said, “Every month he can help at least 100 people to quit the CCP; some months two to three hundred”. Think about how many people have been saved by this practitioner.

A woman in her 50's with cancer was told in the hospital that she could only “live day to day”. The practitioner met her, told her about Falun Gong, and taught her to remember and sincerely say “Falun Dafa is good, Truth-Compassion-Tolerance is good”. The woman was very happy and did as he asked. After a month, the practitioner saw her again and learned that she had recovered and could work on the farm (it had been said that she didn't work on the farm for several years). Since then, she has also become a Falun Dafa practitioner. There are many such cases.
