(Minghui.org) My wife has practiced Falun Gong for 18 years. Our family has benefitted because she practices, but I never thought I would practice Falun Gong myself.

My wife and I visited a local practitioner before the 2015 New Year. I was touched by the practitioner’s selflessness and devotion to Dafa. She inspired me so much that I, too, later began to practice Falun Gong.

No More High Blood Pressure

A few years before I started to practice, I had to take medicine for high blood pressure. Falun Gong helped me to get off the pills.

I used to visit my hometown in Hebei Province every Chinese New Year. My wife and two of my younger sisters also went. I did not know if it was a coincidence or something arranged by Master, but there was a blood pressure monitor on the table at my younger brother’s house. It made me realize that I needed to tell them about Falun Gong so that they could practice, too.

I told them that I used to have the highest blood pressure among our family’s four children. I added that, two months after I began practicing Falun Gong, I did not need to take pills anymore. I asked if someone could take my blood pressure. My younger brother did, and they were all amazed at how low it was.

My younger sister also took my blood pressure and saw the same result. They came to admit that Falun Gong is indeed good. I was thrilled that the improvement in my health could help promote Dafa.

Master’s Merciful Protection

My wife and I returned to Beijing from our hometown in Hebei Province at the same time that the Chinese Communist Party held one of their high level meetings in the capital.

We had to pass through two checkpoints to get home. I had to pay some fees for not carrying my driver's license and saw the inspection office up ahead. There were two cars in front of me, and I started to panic. I put my hands together to ask Master for help. Immediately, one officer said, “We don’t need to check every car on the highway; otherwise, there would be a traffic jam.” Another officer waved for me to pass through.

With deep reverence, I bowed to Master's photo nine times after we got home.

Becoming a Good Person

I used to sneer at Master. And even though I was abusive and would hit my wife very hard, Master still protected me. My wife also still treated me well despite my horrible behavior.

I was a bad person. I once hit four village officials and knocked someone's teeth out with one blow. I once kicked my wife so hard that it damaged her bladder and she had blood in her urine. I once slapped her in the face nine times and damaged her ear.

In fact, my brothers and sisters all hit my wife, but she did not hate us. When my mother was sick, my wife even voluntarily took care of her. I was touched by her compassion. I thought, “What kind of Fa could make her behave so kindly? What kind of Master could teach such a disciple?” My wife’s tolerance also inspired me to cultivate Falun Gong.

Merely five months of cultivating Falun Gong changed me. My three children even said they could not recognize me anymore. They saw me wake up every morning to do the exercises. Sometimes I was lazy and did not feel like getting up, but then I would see Master’s fashen waving at me to get up.

I attend at least two group Fa study groups during the week. I have also joined fellow practitioners who go out to remove public information boards that smear Falun Gong.

I cannot express my gratitude to Master enough. I can only use my own experiences to tell people just how wonderful Falun Gong is.
