(Minghui.org) In the past, I suffered from heart disease and severe neurasthenia. I could not sleep at night without the help of sleeping pills, and my temper was so bad that children were afraid to get near me.

Then, a friend of mine gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun. In this book, Master Li Hongzhi teaches people how to be good and explains the nature of illness. He lays out the structure of the human body in plain, scientific principles. Master's Fa principles helped me gain a new understanding of life.

After practicing Falun Dafa, I lived by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Whenever I faced a conflict, I began to look within to become more tolerant. My health and personality changed dramatically: My health problems disappeared, and my mood improved, making me much more calm.

My sister and sister-in-law saw the good changes that occurred in me after practicing Falun Dafa, and so they, too, took up the practice.

Father-in-Law and New Challenges

A few years ago, my father-in-law was diagnosed with an advanced cancer thought to be incurable. None of his children wanted to take care of him, so they him brought to my home.

My in-laws had never treated me well in the past, and I was still holding on to some of that resentment. However, now that I was a practitioner of Falun Dafa, this was a test for me. I knew I had to be tolerant and forgiving. I knew my father-in-law needed kindness and care at this time in his life, but I still had bad thoughts. Then I thought about Master's teaching.

Master said:

“In cultivation practice, there may be two scenarios when dealing with specific conflicts or when others treat you badly. One is that you might have treated this person badly in your previous life. You feel in your heart that it is unfair, 'How can this person treat me like this?' Then why did you treat this person that way in the past? You might claim that you actually did not know it at that time, and this life has nothing to do with the other life. That does not work.” (Lecture Four in Zhuan Falun)

My bad thoughts were eliminated instantly. I said in my heart, “Master, I was wrong! I want to do better. I want them to know the truth and save them.”

I became calm and accommodated them with warmth and hospitality. Next, I found a hospital for my father-in-law. Several relatives came to help care for my father-in-law, and I put them up in my home. I took care of the guests, visited my father-in-law in the hospital, and made Dafa materials at home. When I went out, I would talk to others about Falun Dafa. This made for an extremely busy schedule.

Tremendous Changes

I had a modest home, so I gave my guests the bedrooms and I slept on the floor.

A month later, my relatives said to me, “You have been wonderful. We know you practice Falun Dafa, so please tell us about it.” I talked to them about Falun Dafa, and advised them to quit the Party, which they did. They took materials about Falun Dafa home with them to read and share.

My father-in-law then had surgery, which revealed that the cancer had spread throughout his body. The hospital said they could do nothing more for him and sent him home.

At home, I looked at the miserable expression on his face and told him he would be okay. A few days later, I asked him if he believed in Falun Dafa. He said, “I know you practice, so I believe in it.”

I told him to listen to Master's teachings and that if he truly believed, it would have a magical effect.

My father-in-law listened to an audio cassette of Master's teaching in Jinan. Soon, he could sit up and drink water. Eventually, he even got out of bed and walked around a bit. I played the videos of all nine lectures, and he started to learn the exercises and read Zhuan Falun.

Three months later, he could go downstairs and walk briskly. His white hair turned black, and when he returned to the hospital for an exam, the doctors discovered that all the cancer cells were gone. They were indeed astonished.

Several months passed, and my in-laws were ready to go home. They said, “We have been here for six months. You have been so kind to us and spent a lot of money taking care of us. We don't know anyone else as generous. We are very grateful and thank you sincerely.”

“I was behaving as a practitioner should,” I said, “like our master teaches us.”
