Reading Zhuan Falun Gives a Middle School Student a New Lease on Life

(Minghui.org) I didn't get good grades in middle school because I was addicted to computer games. As a result, I was admitted to a vocational school instead of high school.

My mother wasn't happy about my situation and asked my head teacher whether I could repeat the last year of middle school. The head teacher he shook his head, “No need. Staying down won't help him. It's not only that he's addicted to computer games, but he is not smart. Staying down one more year is wasting time. It's better for him to go to vocational school and find a job after graduating in two years. He doesn't have the potential to be a good student. Continuing to study would be a burden for him.” Hearing this, my mother was embarrassed.

One day when my mother arrived at home and saw that I was playing computer games, she walked up to my desk and tore the vocational school admission notice. I was stunned and said angrily, “What are you doing?! Without the admission notice, how can I report to school?”

With tears in her eyes, my mother said to me, “Make an effort to enter high school.” I was at a loss as to what just happened.

My father heard what happened that evening and told me, “Come to my room. I'd like to talk to you.” He is a Falun Dafa practitioner. He often asked me to read Dafa books before. I did not listen to him because I was so addicted to computer games.

I went to his room. He said to me gently, “I'll tell you a method to get admitted into high school. This method will assure you to enter high school or even college in the future.” He took out the book Zhuan Falun and said, “Can you finish reading the book in ten days?”

“Yes, I can,” I answered. “Then I will check on you after work each day,” said my father.

I am the only child in my family and was spoiled growing up. I had never been criticized like this before. I went to my room and thought about my life.

When I was young, my father started practicing Falun Dafa. He showed me Master Li's photo and read Zhuan Falun to me. I could not understand the content but saw colorful things in the book. I often saw Falun rotating on my father when he practiced the exercises. Seeing that made me happy.

After going to school, I learned many things. I became addicted to playing games after we bought a computer when I was admitted to middle school. My test scores dropped and my temper flared up. After I thought about this, I decided I needed to change.

I finished reading Zhuan Falun in ten days under the direction of my father. I changed my view of the world. I started to understand what it means to be a good person and the importance of improving one's moral character. I also learned the principle of looking inward when facing conflicts.

A director in my school contacted my mother a few days later and welcomed me to return to school. He gave me a new set of school clothes to encourage me. I kept reading Zhuan Falun daily in my spare time. I benefited a lot and learned how to be a better student. My scores became better and better.

I focused on my studies and also was happy to help others. The atmosphere in my class improved as a result.

A few years passed. I followed Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. I was admitted to a good high school and later a university. Now I have a good job. Falun Dafa truly changed my life.
