(Minghui.org) I work as a secondary school teacher. All the teachers have to undergo a medical checkup every year during "teacher 's day." Many teachers are diagnosed with various minor and even major illnesses. I was the only exception. I was always given a clean bill of health even though I am the oldest teacher in the school. I am the most healthy and have no illnesses at all.

One day a few teachers gathered in my office. They wanted to learn the secret to my wonderful health. I told them that my good health was due to my cultivation. Thinking back, before I became a practitioner I remember that I suffered from a variety of major illnesses, including an acute heart attack, nerve pain, swollen throat, stomach infections, neck and spinal pain, and pain in the back and legs. All these are teachers' occupational illnesses. I told my colleagues that I used to be like them. When I met with unpleasant incidents or people, I would get angry. The moment I got angry, my heartbeat would quicken and suddenly stop, and I had difficulty breathing. When the students were not keen on learning or made mistakes, I became frustrated and was easily angered. My gastric problems flared up whenever I was on the lecture stage or after lessons. When the work stress was too much, I wasn't able to take it, and I would lose sleep. Whenever I had a headache I could not control myself and would even cry.

I am now very fortunate. In January 1999, I was fortunate to get the precious book Zhuan Falun from a retired teacher. Because it was not easy to find this book, I read from 5:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. the next morning. I once read Zhuan Falun in eight hours. From the moment I first read the book, I was very diligent, and seriously studied the Fa, practiced the exercises, and followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

My illnesses very quickly disappeared. From then on, I felt light-hearted. Falun Dafa is really supernatural and miraculous!

After I started cultivating, not only did I have good health, I also became more peaceful and calm. I changed my mentality of competitiveness and I stopped competing with others for fame and gain. I treated others with sincerity and kindness, and I was open minded and magnanimous. I became understanding and considerate of others. When I feel tension, I look inward for my own shortcomings. My relationship with other teachers and students has become harmonious. After I became a Dafa practitioner, my every word and action showed others that Falun Dafa is good. I have good health, good working relationships, and a harmonious family. After I started practicing Falun Dafa, the drastic changes in my health and emotional state were witnessed by everyone around me. My family, co-workers, students, and parents of my students, as well as the people I meet in society all commented favorably on the change. Even those people who were previously deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies and thus participated in the persecution said, “Look! Falun Dafa practitioners are different! He is so good!”

People I met saw these changes in me and they were also changed as a result. Not only did they say that the changes were good, they also followed my example to act better. My cultivation process and the changes in me validated the wonderfulness that Dafa brings to people. Dafa not only changed me but also changed many people around me. Here I would like to give a few examples.

Returning the Money I Found and Validating Dafa

One day after work, I found a stack of cash at the bottom of a flight of stairs. I counted the money and it amounted to eighty thousand yuan. There was no one else around, and I thought to myself that it must have been lost by a student. I wanted to find the person who lost the money as soon as possible, but all the students had already gone home. Thus I handed the money to Mr. Sun, who is in charge of staff administration, and told him what happened. On Monday during school assembly, Mr. Sun publicly told everyone how I had turned in the money I found and he asked the owner to come and claim the money. The student who lost the money was very happy and grateful to me. He said, "Teacher you are so wonderful! If the money was found by someone else I may not have gotten it back. Falun Dafa is good!" The teachers also said, "No name was written on the money, and anyone could spend it. In these times, who would be honest enough to return found money? Only Dafa practitioners would do this!"

After this incident, a student lost his mobile phone on the sporting grounds. Another male student found it and took out the SIM card. In the end, he hesitated but still decided to return the mobile phone to the student who lost it. The teacher publicly praised the student so that good morality would be upheld in the school.

Be Kind to Others and They Will Follow Your Example

My school is a secondary school in a village. Most students stay in school hostels, and the students often come to me when they have problems. I never reject their requests, and I treat the students like my own with kindness.

In order to use electricity safely in the school, the classrooms do not have warm water to drink. Many students come to my office to get hot water, especially on cold days. When the water container is empty, some students take the initiative to fill it up for me. When I thank them, they say, "Teacher, you are so kind! Falun Dafa is good. You are the one who taught us to be kind."

There are many stories in and outside of the school of more people treating each other with kindness. One female student told me one day that she once saw an old lady who had slipped and fallen. She noticed that no one else seemed to care, and no one had stopped to help her. Thus she went and helped the old lady up and took her home. I praised her and said, "You have done well. You are a good child!" She said, "Teacher you are so kind." The influence of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance does change people.

Sincerely Reciting "Falun Dafa is Good" Causes Classroom Lights to Miraculously Come On

One day in class, when I was not able to use the tape player, I realized that there was an electricity blackout. A male student asked me, "Teacher, can Falun Gong help us get the lights back on? If we shout 'Falun Dafa is good' will the lights come on?” I looked at him and smiled. I asked him, "Are you sincere?” At this time, he turned towards the whole class and shouted "Falun Dafa is good" to the whole class. The whole class also shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" right after him. Their voices were so loud that I felt as though they resounded through the skies. At that exact moment, every light in the classroom went on. In an instant the classroom was extremely quiet. Everyone sat very still, staring with their eyes wide open. I thought to myself, "Wow, how miraculous! If you are sincere, Dafa manifests miracles!" As soon as I thought this, the entire class whispered to one another, “Falun Dafa really is miraculous!”

This afternoon, the politics teacher went to this same class to teach his lesson. He came to my office and said, "Just now when I was doing revision with the students, I asked which Fa is the greatest of all? All the students answered unanimously, 'Falun Dafa is the greatest!' They added, 'Falun Dafa is good!'”

I have witnessed many similar supernormal incidents. In my daily life, I always conduct myself according to the Fa's standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As soon as people understand the beauty of Dafa, they immediately acknowledge the greatness and miracles of Dafa.
