Doctor: “Go Practice Falun Gong! It's Good For You!”
(Minghui.org) I became a chief physician and professor after dozens of years in my career as a doctor, and I cured diseases for many people. However, I was in pain from many troublesome diseases myself.
I suffered from chronic knee synovitis and joint effusion for twenty years, and even walking up stairs was difficult. It was very painful at night, and both of my legs felt cold. There was also arrhythmia, ventricular tachycardia, intractable insomnia, constipation, and cervical disease. As a doctor, I clearly knew that drugs could only alleviate the disease symptoms, but the diseases could not be completely cured. During my busy work schedule, I was suffering great pain, and had little relief.
In the summer of 1996, my colleague asked me many times to practice Falun Gong. He said that many people were practicing, and they all said it was good. I thought, I am 60 years old, and should have something to do to pass my time after retirement, so I went to give it a try.
After 20 days, I found that my knees no longer hurt, but I did not realize it was due to practicing Falun Gong.
Only a few days later, I felt very comfortable and happy on my way home, and went up to the fifth floor to my apartment even without realizing how easy it was. My body just felt very light. When I looked at my knees, the effusion was gone, but I didn't know why. I then realized it was because I had been practicing Falun Gong. I found it miraculous, and was shocked. I thought, as a doctor, did I truly cure anyone's illnesses over the past decades? I felt that I was just cheating myself and others.
From then on, when seeing patients, I told those with chronic diseases, “Your disease cannot be fully cured. Go practice Falun Gong! It's good for you.”
At first I was afraid of crossing my legs during meditation. After about a month, I could cross my legs with one leg on top of the other, in meditation position, and soon I could get into tranquility.
I felt very comfortable during meditation, like my whole body was covered and could not move. My head was clear, but I could not feel clearly where my legs, hands, or body were. I just felt the exercise music was very close to me, and very loud. I forgot everything around me and only sensed myself siting there.
I sometimes felt that I was very tall, with deepness below me, and other times I felt that my body was huddled up, with no space between my head and body. The pains in my legs were very weak, and seemed to be in a faraway place. My entire body was relaxed when getting out of tranquility. My legs could lay flat in single-lotus position within six months.
Even though as a doctor, I could not cure my diseases, even after many years, they disappeared after practicing Falun Gong for three months! While studying the Fa, my view of the world had changed. I experienced life more profoundly than I had ever before.
I studied the book Zhuan Falun, which discusses saving sentient beings, and practicing the fundamental law of the universe. I found that the book can elevate and upgrade one's morality. I was so moved by the profound and intricate Fa principles, that I liked to read the book all the time.
I followed principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance every day, and set high standards for myself in every detail of my life. I gave up being attached to things in the world, no longer followed the big trends, and discerned right from wrong using the standards of Dafa. I refused gift bonuses, and stopped buying food and private travel with public funds.
I could not see anything with my celestial eye, and had no supernormal abilities, but I firmly believed in Master and Dafa. This has become unshakable. I will be steadfast, and cultivate all the time.
I have been doing the three things required by Master over the past 15 years of cultivation, and deeply understand that Dafa is part of us. I've experienced how Master can solve anything for us, as long as we eliminate our human attachments, look inward, and follow a righteous way.
We should never fear when validating Dafa. I recited, “Dafa disciples are righteous, saving sentient beings. No evil will see us. We are safe since Master and Dafa are with us.” Sometimes I recite aloud, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
I read so many articles on the Minghui website, and Minghui Weekly, about cultivation experiences of fellow practitioners, and was deeply impressed, and humbled. Although our paths are different, it is the same regarding how to be diligent. I will try my best to save more sentient beings.
