“Why Did You Stop Practicing Falun Gong?”
(Minghui.org) I'm from a small town in Hunan Province. My husband is retired from the Steam Supply and Power Generating Plant. Prior to 1997, his health was very poor. He had gastric disease, sinusitis, and protrusion of the lumbar intervertebral discs and had to visit the hospital often. He needed traction and massage every day, which was very expensive. When we heard that doctors in a hospital in Hubei Province could treat his conditions, we went there, but after spending a lot of money, he did not improve.
Just as we became desperate, a coworker told us that Falun Gong could heal my husband, so we both started practicing. A miracle happened. After only a few days, my husband changed into a new person, and all his illnesses were gone. He could even carry a bicycle to the third floor all by himself. My entire family witnessed how wonderful Falun Gong is.
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, my husband gave up practicing out of fear.
A few days ago, my husband's illnesses recurred. He was in so much pain that he couldn't sit still. He went to the hospital to have an expert evaluate him. The doctor compared the X-rays taken now to those taken more than 10 years ago and asked, “How was it healed last time?” My husband said, “I practiced Falun Gong.”
The doctor asked, “So why did you stop practicing Falun Gong?” My husband said, “Because the CCP stopped us!”
Even though there were so many patients nearby, the doctor said, “Then practice in private! Even if we operate on you, the result cannot be guaranteed! What does the practice consist of?” My husband then clarified the facts in front of many people and demonstrated Exercise Five.
After we got home, we realized that Master has been watching over him, and that what just happened was Master's hint to us: do the three things well and return to cultivation practice.
Even though we have lost more than a decade of precious time and stopped practicing cultivation, our benevolent Master still does not want to give up on a single disciple. Now the first thing my husband does every day is to study the Fa.
