(Minghui.org) My company went on a trip to a place 13 miles away, and our chief had insisted that we all go by bicycle. I was forty-seven at the time.
I was also the first woman to reach the destination–the rest of our vanguard were young men.
When everyone finally assembled at our destination, the chief (who knew I was a Falun Gong practitioner) asked me if I had gotten that energy from Master Li.
I replied, “Indeed, I did. Isn't Falun Gong wonderful?”
Everyone looked at me and smiled. This was the year 2000, and the persecution of Falun Gong in China was in full swing.
On our way back to the city, most people struggled to ride up a steep slope. Many gave up pedaling and pushed their bikes along. However, I scaled it easily, as if someone were pushing me from behind.
The next day at the office, the secretary talked about me with a few coworkers.
“The television has been slandering Falun Gong. Just look at her. She used to be so frail! And now she's practically made of iron because of her practice. You all saw how well she biked yesterday. Falun Gong is definitely a good practice!” he said.
I ran into the secretary's wife a few days ago. She told me what her husband had said about Falun Gong after he got home.
“Falun Gong is amazing. It gave a sickly old woman the strength and vitality of a young man! Everyone was struggling and sweating from the trip, and she was unfazed,” he said.
I used to have heart problems, arthritis, stomach pains and gynecological diseases. I tried everything, but nothing worked. Because I was in constant pain, I became ill-tempered.
I knew that my mother practiced Falun Gong. I visited her at my brother's house one day in 1997, and noticed that a lot of her white hair had turned black. I asked whether she dyed her hair. She told me no, and that it was because of her practice of Falun Gong.
A year into the practice, my mother's heart and stomach problems, arthritis, cataracts, and gynecological illnesses disappeared. She was almost 70 and could do all of the house chores for my brother's family.
Seeing her dramatic improvement in physical health, my two sisters, uncle, and brother's wife had already started practicing Falun Gong by then. I soon decided to join them. A year later, my ailments were gone. My temperament got better, and I stopped fighting with my husband and child.
My husband's two sisters and three of my coworkers also began practicing Falun Gong after seeing my positive changes.
