From Depression to Joy, Everything Changed When I Started to Practice Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Prior to obtaining the Fa, I did not understand why we were alive, or what the purpose of life was. Life was boring to me and at one point I even thought about ending mine. In 1996, everything changed when I started to practice Falun Dafa.
Getting My Health Back
I'm not able to hold back my tears when I look at Master's image in Zhuan Falun. After I began practicing I followed the principles taught in the book in my interactions with the people around me. A month later, I saw very clearly that my body was being purified. I used to be very weak and I suffered a lot from stomachaches. It took me a month to recover when I got a cold. After I began practicing, everything changed. My parents were astonished because I became so healthy and they said they didn't need to worry about me anymore.
Improving My Character and Becoming a Happy Practitioner
In 1997, I found an exercise site and started to do the exercises and study the Fa with other practitioners. My career is in early childhood education. After obtaining the Fa, I decided to share the beauty of Dafa with everyone. In 1998, my new class was made up of mostly five- to six-year-olds. During lunch break, they asked me to tell them stories, so I read Zhuan Falun to them. They were very quiet while listening. The children in my class all treated each other very kindly.
What really surprised me was the change in one naughty boy. Others used to tell me that he fought every day. But one day, he came to me and said, “Teacher, is it true that we should 'not fight back when you are beaten or sworn at' (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun) ?” I nodded my head and said yes. Afterward he stopped fighting with others and became tolerant. Not only that, when I was very busy, he always quietly tried to help me. Other teachers were very touched and said, “He's changed!”
Every time I attended Dafa activities, I wept. So many years just for this one chance.
Dafa Is Defamed But I Firmly Believe
After July 20, 1999, Falun Dafa was defamed in China. I was determined to tell the government and people the miraculous changes I experienced after I began practicing.
In 2001, I went to Tiananmen Square with a banner. But everyone needed to show his or her ID before entering the square. Since I didn't bring mine, the police searched me and found the banner. They were very upset and began abusing me, even stomping on my leg. They yelled, “Why do you come here?” I said, “Don't do this to me. You are doing bad things and only hurting yourself! I only want to tell people the truth.” Even though the policeman was very heavy, I did not feel pain at all. Master was bearing the hardship for me.
Many practitioners came that day but were taken to Tiananmen Police Station. I kept crying. I wept, moved by practitioners' compassion.
Blood streamed down from one elderly practitioner's head. Despite his injuries, he collected the trash that people left and placed it in a plastic bag. Everywhere he went the ground was very clean.
One mother took her 40-day-old infant to Tiananmen Square to tell people, “Falun Dafa is good.”
We recited the Fa together. Fear did not exist in my heart. I did not tell the police my name or address. The police took me to another police station and tried to persuade me to give up my faith. However, I only wanted to tell them that I became a very good person after practicing Falun Dafa.
Master's words put my heart at ease and eliminated any anger or hatred I had.
Benefits from Practicing Falun Dafa
Through the years, I've identified many attachments and eliminated them. Because of my calm and peaceful demeanor, my colleagues said that they felt very comfortable around me. During our 25-year reunion, my former classmates were amazed by how healthy I am now. It's all due to practicing Dafa.
Dafa's wonders manifest in many aspects in our life.
When my daughter was three years old, she had a high fever. I whispered into her ear, “Mom will stay with you for a while.” She replied, “Don't worry about me. Master is taking care of me!” She was born in July 1999. On April 25, when I was seven months' pregnant, I went to petition the government.
She's never gone to the hospital or taken medicine. She does very well in her schoolwork even though she does not spend too much time on it.
My friends are impressed that I do not need to worry about her too much. Master is taking care of her.
One day, my abdomen was injured. I was not able to sit down or stand up. I concentrated on studying the Fa and doing the exercises. I recovered in only three days. Whenever I encounter problems, I look inward to identify my attachments and I find the solution in the Fa. I sincerely appreciate Master and Dafa.
One day, I was posting something in an apartment when a security guard came up to me. I did not have enough time to hide everything before he passed by me, yet he did not see anything.
Every true practitioner made his or her own choice to cultivate in Dafa after thinking about it rationally and carefully. Along the way, Master's compassion always companies us.
I appreciate Master's compassionate salvation deep in my heart. I understand the meaning of life now and treasure my life very much.
Thank you, Master!
