(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in the summer of 2002. My mother-in-law had already been practicing for a long time, and the improvements in her health impressed me. The persecution against Falun Dafa had already started, but I wanted to learn it despite the risks.
My health and temper improved quickly. I now know what it is like to feel at peace!
I was once spat on when I walked passed an open window, but I remained calm. In the past I would have gone over and yelled at the person.
I used to argue with my husband and would be angry with him for days. I now tend to his needs and try to keep him happy.
Throughout the past 14 years of my cultivation, Dafa's broad and profound principles have changed me completely. I've become tolerant, kind and modest, and I am always thankful. I now try to think of others in every circumstance and I always try to be well-mannered and pleasant.
The following are some stories about my family that I would like to share.
My son began to practice Dafa when he was nine-years old. He is tall, handsome and academically successful. He was accepted in a prestigious university with the top score in the province.
He obtained a good job after graduating, and now works in the same city where his grandfather lives.
After seeing how Falun Dafa has benefited my son and I, my husband believes that Dafa is good. He has read Zhuan Falun twice and learned the five sets of exercises. Although he has not started practicing regularly because of his work out of town, he always carries a Dafa amulet with him.
My husband crashed his van into the car in front of him in a heavy rain in the spring of 2014. The van was not equipped with airbags. His windshield was smashed, but his only injury was a minor cut on the back of his hand. I know it was Dafa that protected him.
He talks about his wife and son in a very proud manner.
My father-in-law does not practice Falun Dafa. Before he retired, he used his authority to protect all the practitioners where he worked. He often tells others that Falun Dafa is good and Jiang Zemin, the former communist party leader, is evil. It was Jiang who initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa.
My father-in-law also reads Hong Yin and recites “Falun Dafa is Good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good.”
Even though he is over 70 years of age, no one on the bus gives up their seat for him because he looks much younger and is a picture of health.
He was hit by a taxi while on his bicycle in 2006. He was flung up in the air and landed firmly on his feet at the other end of the taxi, as if doing acrobatics. Those who saw the accident were amazed and commented that he must be some sort of Kung Fu expert.
My mother-in-law also witnessed the accident and knew that Master had protected him. Otherwise, he could have been killed or seriously injured.
My father-in-law has had diabetes for more than 24 years with no complications. Other diabetics have received medical subsidies for their chronic diseases, and he wondered if he too should receive the subsidy.
He went for a checkup, and the doctor said, “You are really blessed. Having no complications after 20 years of diabetes is rare.”
My father-in-law commented, “I don't need to apply for a medical subsidy. I will just remember to say, 'Falun Dafa is Good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good' from now on.”
His eldest grandson, my son, moved to live near him last year, and his other grandson was accepted in the city's key high school with excellent grades.
My father-in-law is now always in a good mood.
My mother-in-law has been practicing Falun Dafa for nearly 20 years. She goes out to talk to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution every day. She used to live in the downtown area where lots of people were always out and about. This was convenient for her, as she could easily go out and talk to people about Dafa.
However, she decided to move to where my son went to college. She initially had some concern about the new location not being so popular with people. But the week prior to her move, the city's biggest fruit and vegetable market opened a branch near her new home, and a large supermarket opened nearby soon after.
She said, “I now understand that as long as one follows Master's requirements, there's nothing to worry about because he is taking care of everything. I'm so happy to be practicing Falun Dafa.”
My parents and younger sister all practice Dafa and are living a happy life.
My father is almost 80-years-old with a full head of black hair. He takes my mother on his motorcycle to go out and talk to people about Dafa every day. He is cheerful and energetic like a young man.
I found a poem that my son wrote when he was 10. I would like to share it and let everyone know that happiness is easy to come by. As long as you sincerely believe that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, happiness will follow you everywhere!
