Actress: My Career Took Off After Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am an actress. I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996, at the age of 40. I came to know the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance from Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. From reading the book, I understood the real meaning of life.
Before I started practicing Falun Dafa I developed a lot of pimples on my face. The doctor said it was caused by the oily make-up that I had to wear as an actress. I tried both Chinese and Western medicines and had injections. I was disheartened and lived like a recluse. My face recovered a bit after some time. However, the pimples appeared on my face again that winter. I had to undergo the treatment again. This went on for 10 years, until I started to practice Falun Dafa. Then, the pimples disappeared.
Our company was required to perform 100 shows each year. Normally we stayed in cheap hotels and did not have good food. Because we traveled frequently, I could not sleep well. I felt dizzy and muddle headed every day. I then became forgetful and could not remember my lines on stage. Sometimes I had terrible headaches.
After I started to practice Falun Dafa, the terrible headache hit me again one evening. I knew that Master, the founder of Falun Dafa, was cleansing my body. In the early morning the headache became so severe that I could hardly bear it. I asked Master to stop my headache, and it was gone shortly afterwards. I went to work as usual, and nobody noticed that I did not sleep that night.
I recovered from all my illnesses, such as cervical bone hyperplasia, bronchitis, duodenal ulcer, and neurasthenia, and my career took off.
Words cannot possibly express the benefits I received from practicing Falun Dafa. The wonders of Falun Dafa can only be experienced by practitioners who truly cultivate.
Benefits from Practicing Dafa
I was hot-tempered. My father was persecuted to death when I was three years old. My mother died of cancer when I was 23 years old. This made me independent, yet stubborn and aloof. I was always a leader either at school, at work, or in some social groups. I never admitted I was wrong, though I would correct my behavior. However, I was kindhearted and did not care much for personal interests.
After I began to practice Falun Dafa, I cultivated my moral character. I have undergone fundamental changes. My family life became harmonious and I no longer quarreled with my husband and child.
I was promoted to senior manager in 1997. At first I was not willing to accept the promotion, but after I listened to the teachings of Falun Dafa, I accepted that position. I assumed a lot of responsibility when we were performing while traveling.
I had to make sure that the stage set up was done. Then, there were making arrangements for the accommodations, transportation, cleaning and sewing. I always stayed in the cheapest hotels, yet I was one of the main actresses. I also had to solve conflicts and problems among the performers. I always followed the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and won everyone's trust. When I ran into a conflict with my colleagues, I regarded myself as a Dafa practitioner and tried to be kind and good.
I am always happy and filled with excitement when I realize that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Every time I ride my bicycle past my previous school, I get excited and shout in my heart, “I am practicing Falun Dafa! I am a Dafa practitioner!” I talk to everybody about Falun Dafa and our Master.
