(Minghui.org) My parents-in-law introduced me to Falun Dafa, but they gave it up after the persecution started. Many of my family members turned against me after I went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa. But they changed after I discovered my fundamental attachment – selfishness. All of them now acknowledge Dafa and support me.

1. Obtaining the Fa

I saw Master's photo when I was at the home of my husband-to-be in 1998. My father-in-law was an assistant at a practice site. My mother-in-law practiced Falun Dafa as well and recovered from brain surgery. She was in good health.

Although he didn't practice, my husband knew Falun Dafa was good from his parents.

One day I read several pages in the book Zhuan Falun in their home. It interested me, and I wanted to know more about Falun Dafa. They gave me all the Dafa books and an exercise video. I began to practice after I read the books and watched the video.

2. Validating the Fa in Beijing

After the persecution started in 1999, I was determined to continue cultivating Falun Dafa. The rampant lies of the propaganda could not fool me. I was only worried that practitioners would no longer be able to get together to study the Fa study and do the exercises.

I went by myself to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa in 2000 because others were not able to go with me. My family and other practitioners worried about me after they learned I had gone by myself.

The persecution in those days was really bad. Local police and company security guards intercepted practitioners on their way to Beijing and put them into labor camps and jails. Masanjia Forced Labor Camp became notorious for torturing practitioners horribly.

At Tiananmen Square I unfolded a Falun Dafa banner and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” I was arrested and detained for several days. I went on a hunger strike and demanded my unconditional release. I was freed three days later and went home.

Local practitioners were amazed by my return. They witnessed the power of Dafa and the positive energy of righteous thoughts.

To help people learn the truth about Falun Dafa, another practitioner and I set up a material production site. Our cultivation then entered a new stage.

3. My Family Turned Against Me

My family members were terrified. They watched me closely to keep me from going to Beijing again. My mother-in-law gave up the practice and even asked me not to practice. She said that I would affect other family members because of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) implication policy.

My husband searched my bags and other personal belongings. When he found any Dafa materials, he swore at me.

My father-in-law was scared, too. He brought boxes full of Party books back home that I had tried to dispose of. They all tried to persuade me to see the situation "clearly."

My father was scared to death, and his blood pressure went up. He used his health to pressure me to give up Dafa.

My mother blamed my mother-in-law for introducing me to Falun Dafa.

All of a sudden, it seemed that the evil forces in other dimensions went crazy. I felt a lot of pressure and wondered what should I do. I felt lonely.

4. I Look Inward, My Family Changes

Master asks us to look inward. I found my problem, which was that I didn't think about whether my family could bear the pressure of the outside world. I only showed my determination to cultivate Dafa. I was not considerate.

My parents-in-law used to practice Falun Dafa, yet they didn't know the truth. I didn't clarify the truth to them in detail. My parents worried that I would go back to Beijing.

I was selfish because I only considered my own cultivation and didn't consider their feelings. That was a big omission. I had to cultivate away the selfishness and be considerate of them. I had to find where their problems were and clarify the truth to them accordingly.

I explained to my husband in detail how the self-immolation on Tiananmen Square was staged. He understood and started to support me. He worried about my safety, so he went with me to distribute informational materials. He withdrew from the CCP and helped others quit, too.

I explained the truth to my parents-in-laws. Sometimes they didn't listen to me, so I sent righteous thoughts to clear the evil factors behind them. I continued to tell them the facts.

I played the DVD Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party for my mother. She understood after she watched the first commentary. She withdrew from the CCP, and even had the courage to use her true name in doing so.

At a family meal at my parents-in-laws' home, my husband cursed and slandered Dafa. I stayed calm and sent righteous thoughts in my heart. He said he would divorce me and left.

This seems to have been a real turning point.

My family praised me for my forbearance and blamed my husband. I told my parents-in-laws that I was not angry with him because he was controlled by the evil in other dimensions.

Several days later he was good to me again, as though nothing had happened. That weekend we went to my in-laws' home again. They agreed to withdraw from the CCP.

So it was not that difficult to persuade people to withdraw from the CCP. When I was in the Fa and demonstrated the beauty of Dafa, people naturally withdrew from the CCP. It was the power of Dafa. It took me quite a few years to realize that. Thank you, Master!

I gave my in-laws an MP4 with the exercise music and Dafa ebooks on it. They were glad to have it. They told me they did the sitting meditation for an hour every day. My father quit the CCP.

The light of the Fa now shines on my family. My non-practitioner family members say, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” when they are in danger. Master protects them every time.

Because I changed my mindset, my family changed. I still have a lot of shortcomings and have to cultivate away many attachments. I will cultivate diligently, do the three things well so as to be worthy of Master's saving grace, and fulfill my pre-historic vow.
