Falun Dafa Brought Beauty to My Troubled Life
(Minghui.org) My first husband had a very bad temper and did not take care of our family. I suffered a lot during this marriage and finally decided to divorce him. He then kept my daughter from me.
My father did not want me in his home because I was divorced. Thus, I moved away from my hometown, but I missed my daughter. I came down with a liver problem when I was 25 years old, which turned into advanced cirrhosis of the liver seven years later. I was very thin and passed out frequently.
Introduced to Falun Dafa
A friend suggested that I practice a qigong called Falun Dafa in June 1997. Although I did not believe that it would help, I was touched by my friend's concern and decided to try it.
I went to a practice site and found the music attractive. It sounded like music from heaven. I was told it was the Falun Dafa exercise music. I practiced the sitting meditation that night, could cross both of my legs into the full lotus position, and sat for one hour. I felt great and slept soundly.
By the third day, I could feel that my body had been completely purified. My body became light and healthy. I am deeply grateful to Master Li (founder of Falun Dafa).
Informing People about the Persecution
After the persecution began, I saw many practitioners, including the elderly, talking to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution over the phone. Thus, I also wanted to participate in this project.
The first day I used my cell phone to call people and encourage them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and two quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Fellow practitioners encouraged and praised me. Yet, I knew that I was far from a diligent practitioner and had to improve.
All kinds of people answered the phone and they had many different questions. Master gave me the wisdom needed to help them understand the truth about Falun Dafa, and why they should quit the CCP.
A few people bullied me and someone even called back three times. I did not hate them, regardless of their abusive behavior. They were deceived by the CCP propaganda and indoctrination.
I went to the river bank to meet and make phone calls with a fellow practitioner during the 2014 Chinese New Year. When she did not show up for one hour, I began making calls, although I was very disappointed.
It was a very cold day. People were abusive and extremely nasty on the phone. Finally, I broke down and complained to Master that it was so hard to save people.
Then, I calmed down and realized that I was on a mission to help people learn the facts about Dafa and quit the CCP. I helped a dozen people quit the CCP, the same number of people as when I had partnered with someone else.
My second husband hit and abused me after I returned home. My heart was unmoved. I thought I was a Dafa disciple who could endure everything. I realized that Master used this to improve my xinxing.
The CCP used many different methods to interfere with me. It was difficult to buy phone cards. I had to pay above the market price for one phone card.
Master saw my sincerity and thus enhanced my righteous thoughts. I talked to over 60 people and convinced them to quit the CCP.
Family Members Accept Dafa
I was persecuted by the CCP for practicing Dafa. My family members stayed away from me because of the Chinese communist regime's guilt by association policy. My husband also opposed my practicing Falun Dafa.
I left my home with the mindset that nobody could stop me from practicing Dafa. Then, I realized that Master gave human beings the chance to be saved as long as the Fa-rectification had not ended. So I returned home.
I took care of my sick husband and also did all what a practitioner is supposed to do. My husband changed a lot. When I came home late, he smiled and said, “Good, you have come home.”
My father used to practice Dafa but stopped later out of fear. He died in his 90’s. He said whoever took care of him would inherit his house.
My sisters and brothers refused to take care of my father when he was very sick and dirty. I took care of him until he died. I borrowed money to host my relatives who attended my father’s funeral.
I gave the house to my younger brother in order to keep close ties with my family members.
My younger brother was also very sick and near death. I took care of him and let him listen to Master’s Fa lectures. He was touched and cried. He said that he worried about my safety.
My relatives witnessed my selflessness and began to accept the truth about Dafa. My nieces borrowed Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa, and read it.
My daughter came to live with me and supported me financially. I also received my retirement pension. I did not need to worry about money and I was able to put all my efforts into informing people about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
Recalling my cultivation experience, I realized that by walking on the righteous path, everything would become better.
