Falun Dafa Changes My Mother from Meanness to Kindness
(Minghui.org) My mother experienced amazing changes after learning Falun Dafa. My relationship with her improved and our family lives in harmony.
I had an unhappy childhood. My mother had a bad temper. She was always reprimanding everyone. Her health was poor and she would often stay in bed moaning and groaning.
My father did not know how to please her. They fought a lot. She would also bad-mouth her in-laws in front of everyone.
Once while my mother was very angry she said something to me that hurt my feelings deeply. After that I no longer liked her.
I moved away from home after I got a job. My father was not happy to see me move far away but I was happy to go. I got married and had children. My mother would come visit, and always left unhappy.
I was fortunate enough to learn Falun Dafa. I knew my mother was not in good health so I went home to recommend Falun Dafa to her. She was not interested.
She got angry with my father and came to stay with me. She attended group practice and learned the exercises.
Mother had high blood pressure and was never able to stand for long without getting dizzy. However, she could do the second standing exercise without any problem. She was surprised and thought the exercises were remarkable. She started to practice Falun Dafa.
She is now in a good mood, can walk fast, work hard, and is never tired. Neighbors commented on what a tough lady she is. The high blood pressure, heart problems, migraines, arthritis and kidney disease that she once suffered all disappeared.
She uses the money she once spent on medication to buy my father food that he likes. The household is now harmonious.
Mother is in her 80s and cooks for all of us during the holidays.
My parents also grow vegetables, enough for all of us. We enjoy cucumbers, tomatoes, beans and corn – all grown organically. My friends envy my organic produce.
Life as a Practitioner
Every morning my mother gets up to do the five sets of exercises, listens to Master's lectures and the Minghui website broadcasts. Every chance she gets she tells people that Falun Dafa is good. She has a fulfilling life.
Since I started practicing Falun Dafa my relationship with my mother has improved. She is no longer the mean woman she used to be. She thinks about other people first, and she is good to my father. If there is a conflict between them she would admit to it being her fault and end the tension.
My mother is a happy woman now. She said that Falun Dafa gave her good health and purified her heart and mind. She is very grateful to Master Li – the founder of Falun Dafa.
