Dafa Changed a Sickly Woman Into Becoming the Backbone of Her Family
(Minghui.org) Before I was transferred to Shandong Province for work in 1993, I had always been sickly. I was pale and weak due to anemia. My chest was tight, and I was continually short of breath. I easily caught colds, suffered from fevers and often had headaches. During the summer, I still had to wear layers of clothes to stay warm. My appetite was poor. I suffered had suffered from these symptoms since youth.
While I was growing up, my parents worried about my poor health. My health never improved despite the efforts of my parents. This caused me to be irritable and depressed. I often felt like I wanted to die.
I began to learn different types of qigong, one type after another, to become stronger. Nothing worked! People talked about how good Falun Dafa is, and I became eager to try it in 1994. I obtained a copy of the teachings of Falun Dafa, and then learned the five exercises of the practice. I went to the park in the morning to join group exercises, and I read the book with other practitioners in the evening. Soon my body was cleansed.
Master Li Hongzhi, the founder and teacher of Falun Dafa, said:
“I do not talk about healing illness here, and neither will we heal illness. As a genuine practitioner, however, you cannot practice cultivation with an ill body. I will purify your body. The body purification will be done only for those who come to truly learn the practice and the Fa.” (Zhuan Falun)
Soon the symptoms of illness were gone. My appetite improved, my complexion was rosy, and I became stronger.
I felt light when walking, and riding a bike was easy. I felt wonderful. After so many years of being ill, I finally knew what it was like to live without sickness. I became a healthy and optimistic person. I threw away all my medicine. It was truly amazing.
Once Very Weak–Now The Backbone of Her Family
For 21 years I have been married. My in-laws were unemployed when we married, so they were not able to help us financially.
To make a living, my husband began to drive a taxi. He was barely able to make a profit and even lost money at times. He hired someone to drive his taxi at night, and the night driver had an accident. We had just purchased a house and had a mortgage to pay; money was tight. My husband was distraught and had thoughts of suicide. The night of the accident, I had to take the injured passenger to the hospital without him. Late that night, as I walked home, I thought if I had not been a Falun Dafa practitioner, I might not ever have gone home again, but my strong belief in Falun Dafa kept me from running away.
My in-laws had worked hard all their lives but had no savings, house or pension. I invited them to live with us. My mother-in-law was resentful toward her husband, so they argued frequently. My husband could not get along with his mother, and they too argued often.
I never complained that my in-laws weren’t able to help us financially, but I did feel resentful that they did not seem to care about my family – especially my child. I had to take care of the household and spent a lot of money trying to keep everyone healthy. I began to feel bitter, but then I remembered the teachings of Falun Dafa about being able to endure hardship.
I went to work, comforted my husband, took care of my child and in-laws, and even went to the hospital to visit the person who was hurt in the accident.
It has been a challenging 20 years. I have often been in tears and wondered if I should leave my marriage, but Dafa’s teaching about looking within would always appear in my heart.
When I looked within I found many attachments, such as combativeness, showing off, fear of suffering, seeking comfort, fame, and greed. Falun Dafa practitioners should think of others first, which I often failed to do.
After I gradually let go of my attachments and followed the requirements of Falun Dafa, every aspect of my life improved, and our family was blessed. We paid off our debts in three years and purchased a car.
My mother-in-law had problems with one of her kidneys, and her doctor suggested having it removed. I encouraged her instead to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good,” and she did. Her kidney quickly improved: her recovery was amazing. My father-in-law was diagnosed with liver cancer. I took the CT scans to get a second opinion, and the doctor said he was misdiagnosed and did not have cancer. My daughter was hit by a car more than once, but she was always okay. Compassionate Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) has helped us overcome tribulations!
I tried to use the wisdom I had gained from learning Falun Dafa to guide my husband and in-laws in overcoming their differences. Though they did not become Falun Dafa practitioners, Dafa helped them open their hearts. Gradually, our family has become more peaceful.
As a Dafa practitioner, I am tolerant and good to everyone, and my family members, in particular, have experienced how I have changed. I am grateful to Master Li. My family members now tell others how good Falun Dafa is.
I thank Falun Dafa for completely changing me. I believe good will be rewarded with good and evil rewarded with evil, so I will not harm any life. I follow Falun Dafa’s teachings to be kind and good, and I try my best to be selfless.
