(Minghui.org) I have heard people say that they either heard about or got a hold of the Falun Dafa books by chance, felt drawn to the practice, began to cultivate and have not regretted their decision despite the persecution in China.
This is exactly what happened to me. I downloaded Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, from the Internet in October 2010 by chance.
Despite the ongoing persecution of the practice, it was as if a mysterious power wanted me to read this book. This turned into a life-changing event.
Before practicing Dafa, I was diagnosed with many illnesses, including chronic digestive problems and an incurable neurological disorder. Taking medication helped some, but resulted in side effects that were hard to live with. For example, the pills damaged my nerves, left me feeling very weak and my face drooped on one side.
After I began to practice Dafa, I experienced many benefits, which is one of the reasons I truly cherish being a Falun Dafa practitioner.
When I read Zhuan Falun, I sensed that something was turning clockwise and then counter-clockwise in my abdomen. I also felt that there was a warm current moving from the top of my head to my toes. I cannot describe in mere words how I felt at that moment.
It is very cold at the end of October, so I used to put on cotton-padded trousers and shoes, wore a warm hat and a winter scarf. Now, I don't feel cold anymore and my hands and feet feel warm even when I only wear a single layer of clothes.
When I looked into a mirror after two weeks into the practice, I saw a rosy complexion and I looked prettier. I no longer get tired when I walk upstairs and all the symptoms that used to bother me are gone.
Dafa not only gave me a healthy body, but it also taught me the importance and true meaning of life.
After I stepped into the practice, I began to send forth righteous thoughts and felt a very strong energy around me.
My family saw the positive changes in me and also began to practice Falun Dafa.
My thoughts are centered around the importance of people hearing the facts about Dafa, including the unprecedented persecution and how I benefited from Dafa.
I set up a materials production site and print informational materials about Falun Dafa and the persecution, which I distribute.
Sometimes, I was afraid when I distributed materials about Dafa in new places. Then, I remember that the founder of Dafa, whom practitioners call Master, is with me, so what is there to be afraid of?
Once when I distributed Dafa materials, I saw the words “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” on the wall of a corridor. My eyes were filled with tears as I realized how fellow practitioners' efforts and hard work gave me confidence and energy.
My mind is filled with the truths that I have learned from Dafa. I cherish every minute and cultivate myself well.
