My Wife's Cultivation Path
(Minghui.org) My wife is a cadre of a large enterprise. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, I was illegally arrested and persecuted in a detention center because I appealed for Falun Gong in Beijing. My wife monitored my activities very closely after my release. She carefully checked and read every item I brought home, including truth clarification materials, the Minghui Weekly, and others, to prevent me from making any political mistake. After reading those materials many times, she realized that the principles are righteous, and that Falun Gong practitioners are kind and good.
Miracle Occurred after Reciting Falun Dafa Is Good
My wife had congenital heart disease. She had heart surgery when she was young, but it did not completely eliminate the problem. She often still had severe arrhythmia, making it unbearable for her to move or do anything. She visited many hospitals for treatment. The doctors could only suggest that she take medicine when it occurred. She was also told to keep the medicine with her for an emergency.
On one occasion, she had a serious episode at home and the medicine didn't help. She suddenly remembered some examples mentioned in the Falun Gong truth clarification information materials, about people's diseases disappeared after they recited “Falun Dafa is good.” She said these words over and over until she felt sleepy. She then lay down and fell asleep. She felt great when she woke up. She has now been well for over ten years.
She now often repeats “Falun Dafa is good!” in her heart. One evening when she sat in meditation and recited “Falun Dafa is good,” a very beautiful scene appeared in front of her. It was so beautiful that she didn't have the words to describe it. In the scene, she saw pretty flowers, and grasses, mountains, and water. She also saw a fairy-like lady meditating. The next day she asked me how this happened. I said to her that her celestial eye had opened, and she was seeing things in other dimensions, and that cultivators understand this phenomenon as it happens to them quite often. We do not usually tell everyday people about it, as it is very hard for them to understand it.
While half asleep one night, she saw hordes of ugly black bugs the size of walnuts crawling from all directions, circling around her. She felt very scared and cried out “Falun Dafa is good!” just as the bugs were ready to crawl on her. All of the bugs instantly disappeared! The area surrounding her became clear and she then felt fine. I told her that in the Fa principles Master taught that we may encounter different kinds of tribulations based on our accumulated karma. I said, “What you saw was your big tribulation. Master removed it for you because you recited 'Dafa is good.'” She was very moved upon hearing this.
We always buy fresh vegetables in the fall at a farmers' market a few kilometers away from home. One section of the road leading to the market, which is more than one kilometer in length, is very narrow and rough. It is always crowded with pedestrians and cars, so we have to push our bike to get through. One day, my wife biked home after purchasing a bag of potatoes at the farmers' market. The moment she walked into the house, she said to me that she had experienced a miracle! She said that she recited “Falun Dafa is good” on the way home. She was then home. She did not think she had passed that road, and did not get off the bike. She looked at her watch and it only took a few minutes to get home. “Isn't that a miracle?” I told her, “That may be because you came home through a different dimension. This is understandable to cultivators. Master helped you because you recited 'Falun Dafa is good.'” She said, “I would never have believed it had I not experience it myself.”
Beginning to Cultivate and Becoming Happy and Healthy
My wife's poor health worsened as she grew older. When she was past retirement age, she first developed symptoms of hypertension, dizziness, and vertigo, and then serious constipation, which made her life miserable. Even worse, she had a lump the size of an egg under each armpit—and the lumps kept growing. The doctors at the hospital suggested that she have surgery as soon as possible. It was midsummer. She was very worried that she would swelter after the operation. She asked me for advice. I suggested, “It's easy. First, you can start listening to Master's Fa teachings, then start practicing Falun Gong with me if you feel it is good.” She replied, “I know that Dafa is good. I benefited by saying, 'Falun Dafa is good.' Seeing your color, I know you are healthy. But I also realize that you have endured a lot of hardships. I am not sure if I could endure them.” I told her that I was very happy to be a Dafa practitioner, and don't ever feel that I am suffering. I told her that you can't beg for food while holding a gold bowl. She agreed to try it.
That is how my wife became a Dafa practitioner. Following a high standard, she studied the Fa and practiced the exercises diligently. Without being aware of it, all her physical problems disappeared and she became a new person, looking younger.
My wife is the oldest daughter in her family. When she went out with her two younger sisters, some relatives who had not seen them for a long time even mistook her as the youngest sister. Last summer, she and her second younger sister brought home two bags of flour. Each bag weighed 55 pounds. We lived on the fourth floor. Her sister suggested that they carry it together. My wife said no and asked her sister to help put one bag on her shoulder so that she could carry it upstairs. She carried both bags up, one by one, without getting tired. Her sister said, “You don't look like someone nearly 60 years old. You were not this strong when you were young. Where does your strength come from?”
Even more surprisingly, my wife found a job at a property management company. She said that she is healthy and energetic. She would feel ashamed if she stayed at home and did not contribute anything to society. She now does the exercises in the morning, works during the day, and studies the Fa at night. Her life is very fulfilled. Because of Fa-study, she takes lightly any conflicts with others, and disdains personal gains. She is worry free, happy, and healthy.
