Changing from Being Against to Being Positive about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) When I was out shopping for the day I stopped at a bookstore. The owner, a woman in her 60s, and I chatted. She was friendly and easy to talk to. She told me about her recent surgery and how it left her feeling weak all the time. I told her how practicing Falun Dafa can improve health. She did not believe me and said she was against Falun Dafa.
She talked to me some more, going on about the difficulties of owning a small bookstore. She said: “The price of educational materials has gone up. The teachers make money from selling them to their students.” She told me about a teacher who does not earn money from selling books to his students. Instead, he asks the students to pay the same price that he buys them for from me. She said she had never met another teacher like him, he impressed her. I told her, “I know him! He is my husband.”
She was stunned and stared at me in surprise. I told her: “Twenty-years ago I began to practice Falun Dafa because I was very ill. I did the exercises and read the main book of Falun Dafa Zhuan Falun and lived by its principles to become a better person. I recovered from all my illnesses. I enjoyed how wonderful life was without illness. More importantly, practicing Falun Dafa can improve one’s disposition, and bring balance to one's life. I have learned from Falun Dafa that I should be kind, and always think of others first.
"My husband, the teacher you spoke of, does not practice Falun Dafa, but from me he sees how wonderful Dafa is. He also behaves this way. Do you see now how great this practice of Falun Dafa is? It improves health and teaches “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
She nodded in agreement. Her opinion of Falun Dafa had completely changed after talking to me, and she agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party.
