Learning the Truth about Falun Dafa Saved My Life
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a 58-year-old civil servant living in a medium-size city in Northeast China. All my life, I was misled by the atheist propaganda of the Communist Party, and as a result I have developed many deep-rooted notions. I believed that what the Communist Party told me was correct. I was also so short tempered that, if I believed that I was right about something, I lashed out at people who disagreed. Therefore, I accumulated a lot of karma.
My wife, who is around the same age as I, is very healthy and energetic. People all like her because she practices Falun Dafa. She encouraged me to practice with her, but I felt I was too busy and due to the influence of atheism, I didn't join her. In July 1999, when Jiang's regime ordered the persecution of Falun Dafa, I went along with the majority and slandered Falun Dafa and Mr. Li Hongzhi, its founder. I regret this very much. I know that I made a big mistake. I asked for forgiveness and for an opportunity to correct my mistake.
I was jealous when I saw that my wife became healthier after practicing Falun Dafa and no longer needed any medication. When she got up at 4 a.m. to do the exercises, I also got up and went out to walk for ten kilometers. After ten years, I looked healthy, but I constantly had minor ailments.
In August, 2010, my wife and I went to our hometown to visit relatives. At around 8 p.m. one evening, I experienced sharp abdominal pain and I couldn't move. I was so ill that I had to be taken to the hospital for emergency care. I was put on intravenous antibiotics and a nasogastric tube was inserted to reduce stomach pressure. I was on oxygen and had a urinary catheter as well. On the second day, my symptoms stabilized. After the doctor informed me that I had a gastric perforation, my wife whispered to me that I should repeat to myself, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” It was like magic! As soon as I repeated what she said, I did not feel as sick. On the fifth day, my wife requested that we be transferred back to a hospital in my city. The doctors and nurses were not happy about that. They refused to let me take the oxygen tube, catheter, and stomach tube with me. My son drove me back to our city without any of the life support equipment and we had no problems. On the way, we were all saying, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
When we arrived at the hospital, it was 6 p.m. After the examination, the doctor told us that I had widespread infections in my abdomen and my intestines were all “stuck together”. They could not make a complete diagnosis unless they opened me up. During surgery they found malignant tumors in my colon. My pancreas was enlarged and in addition, the large and small intestines were “stuck together”. As a result, the doctor could not remove the tumors. All they could do was to cleanse the abdominal cavity and perform a colostomy. My wife and son asked the doctor if the procedure could be reversed in the future. The doctor didn't answer directly, but said, “Do you think he will have another chance for surgery?” Clearly he did not think I had much more time left.
I didn't recover well after the surgery and my body felt very feverish. On the fifth day, I had problems breathing and fluid in my abdomen. They gave me medicine for my heart and diuretics, but I was not responding. On the sixth day, I was transferred to a hospital that specialized in treating tumors. The specialist was amazed that I had survived the surgery. He said that I had to go through four rounds of chemotherapy before I could have any other surgery. The doctor said that everything was uncertain. It all depended on how I responded to chemotherapy.
After transferring to this hospital, I learned more and more about the truth of Falun Dafa and my health improved. I responded well to the chemotherapy and I was able to go for a second surgery. Although I had an excellent doctor, I believe it was Teacher who protected me and gave me a second chance. My surgery went very well and I recovered and regained my health once again.
I sincerely hope that everyone will learn the truth of Falun Dafa and not be deceived by the Communist Party. Even though I almost died twice in five months, I did survive! I am a living example of how knowing the truth and correcting my mistakes can bring about good fortune.
