Falun Dafa Helps a Law Enforcement Officer Reconcile With His Father

March 21, 2012 |   By an individual in Gansu Province

(Clearwisdom.net) I am a law enforcement officer. I would like to tell you the story of how Falun Dafa helped me reconcile with my father and harmonize my family.

In January of 1996, my mother passed away due to illness. My siblings and I were still of school age. My father, the village veterinarian, traveled quite often in his practice. This meant that I and my younger sister and brother were left at home, feeling very lonesome. A few years later, I was accepted into a technical school. This resulted in my twelve-year-old sister being forced to quit school in order to take care of the family. During the years I was away at the technical school, my father was seduced by a widow in the same village. He slept with her every day and did not even return home at night. We frequently begged him to come back home, but he ignored our pleas. A senior person in the village summoned the family at large (all those with the same last name) to persuade him together, but he still did not change his mind. This longstanding illegal adultery filled us with shame in front of others. Thus, once I started working and was able to support myself, I stopped associating with my father.

My father's immoral affair was known among the surrounding villages and people condemned him constantly. However, my father was mired in his demonic desires and shamelessly continued in his adultery with that widow. Heaven sees, however, and rewards goodness and punishes evil. In April of 2004, my father fell down a cliff while walking in the dark at night and broke his coccyx. He had to stay in bed after the fall and that widow took care of him. After a few months, and once he was able to get back on his feet with the help of a cane, she kicked him out of her home and stopped caring for him. My father had no choice but to stay alone in the village veterinary clinic and look after himself as best he could. Some people told me that he attempted suicide several times, but he was stopped by his colleagues. A lot of people tried to persuade me to take my father home, but I thought of his past neglect and filthy deeds, and I refused.

After a few months, my father's health deteriorated, and people in the village became sympathetic toward him and began to criticize me instead. My heart was tormented, but I was determined to ignore him. This situation had lasted for some time when along came a relative who practiced Falun Dafa. She explained to me the karmic relationships between people and the meaning of life. She talked of the beauty and bright future for those who tried to live as a good person according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She also gave me the book Zhuan Falun, and had me study It.

I read through the book with a sincere heart. When I finished reading, all the clouds in my heart cleared up. I realized then that our discordant father and son relationship was due to karmic retribution. If I did not forbear and forgive, and did not resolve the retribution peacefully in this life, worse karmic retribution would form, and I would create more karma for myself and get worse retribution in the future. I would have to meet my father again to pay for my karma. The karmic retribution between us would continue life after life, to which one might not see an end. Thus, I made up my mind to resolve it positively. After successfully persuading my wife, I brought my father home and took care of him.

That relative also told my father the beauty of Dafa, and later helped my father and I to quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). My father recited frequently, "Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." He thus recovered very quickly with only minor residual effects to his health. He was then able to get back to his veterinary practice and his income improved. When I was buying our apartment at the beginning of 2006, my father contributed 10,000 yuan to help out. We are now a happy, harmonious family.

One day last December, I called a taxi and rode with my father to the city for his medical check up. On the way back, the taxi crashed into a wastewater ditch, as the driver was trying to avoid an obstacle in the roadway. The impact of the crash caused both of the front tires to explode and the front doors could not be opened. However, neither the driver nor the passengers were injured at all. After inspecting the damage, the driver told us that the explosion of the tires had lowered the bottom of the car, causing it to fall into the ditch. However, had the car not fallen into the ditch, it would have hit the electric pole three meters away and a major accident would have occurred. My father and I both felt that it was Falun Dafa that saved the lives of all of us in that car.

Even though I have not started the cultivation practice yet, I have obtained a Fa which has not appeared over many past ages. I require myself to follow the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance all the time. Through the job I hold, I try to protect Dafa practitioners, and I have also provided legal assistance for several individuals who were wronged. I understand that the happy life that I have today is given by Falun Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi.
