(Minghui.org) Thousands of people have taken up the practice of Falun Dafa and countless stories have been told about the extraordinary power of this cultivation practice. These stories show the world why practitioners continue to believe in Falun Dafa, and why even persecution cannot stop them from giving up the practice.

Always a Good Harvest on Undesirable Land

By Xiaowen in China

There was a plot of undesirable farming land in our village which had no yield of crops because of its location. It was either flooded just after seedlings emerged, or just before a harvest. Most years it was covered with weeds, and cattle and sheep grazed there.

This land was covered with ice during the winter of 2001. Village officials decided to rent the land to farmers for 15 years. The rent was less than 10% of the normal value.

My neighbor Mr. Chen told me that a friend of his was interested in renting the land with him, but he would prefer to rent it with me.

He knew that my entire family practices Falun Dafa. We follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We are open-minded and always think of others first.

Our harvest after the first year very good, although we did not apply any chemical fertilizers. Our harvest was even better than the harvest on more fertile land where chemical fertilizer was used. Our harvest paid back our 15-year rent within a year. Everyone in the village felt that we were lucky.

Our harvest continued to be good every year. During the midsummer of 2012, our area had many heavy rains, and strong winds. The wind avoided our land as if on purpose. Other crops were blown down, but ours were fine, and we had a good harvest.

After the heavy winter snow thawed in the spring, the land was covered with water. We had to pump the water. Mr. Chen tried to persuade the neighboring farmers to pump the water out of their lands as well, but no one agreed. I told Mr. Chen that it did not matter, as our land always had a good harvest.

I remembered Master's teaching,

“There should be a loss for every gain...” (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York)

We drained the water, which also helped the surrounding farmers.

At the end of the year, our neighbors were grateful, as they also had a good harvest because they were adjacent to our land. As a result, they were always friendly to us.

We are going on 15 years since we began planting that parcel, and have always had a good harvest. Mr. Chen and I have cooperated throughout all these years and never argued.

Becoming Healthy After Practicing Dafa

By Shufan in China

I suffered from headaches, leg pain, and insomnia for as many years I can remember. We were poor and lacked funds to consult a doctor. I tried medication, but nothing helped.

I suffered from insomnia and often felt nauseous and vomited. My legs hurt, which prevented me from walking without holding on to something. I became bow-legged.

Someone in my village who had been diagnosed with leukemia spent a lot of money to find a cure. She was not successful and went home to die. However, at home, she was introduced to Falun Dafa. She recovered within a short time and went back to work. She told me her story and offered to help me learn this cultivation practice.

She asked me to read the book Zhuan Falun, and taught me the Dafa exercises. I followed the Dafa principles, did the exercises, and read the book. After a few months I had recovered from all my illnesses.

Recovered from an Eye Injury

By Xiaoqin in China

I have practiced Falun Dafa for 17 years. In accordance with the Dafa principles Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, I strive to be a good person and exhibit kindness to everyone. My health has been good and my family life is harmonious.

My brother hired me to install windows in the autumn of 2003. I had to measure and cut the glass. I used a glass cutting tool to cut a few small pieces of a glass, and a piece got into my eye. It was very painful and I could not move my eyeball. I covered my eye with one hand to find help, but everyone had left.

Whenever I get hurt I remember what Master said:

“You're too afraid of that bad energy. If it comes, you're able to dissolve it, to dissolve it into primordial qi for your use.” (Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)

I immediately felt the broken glass slowly moving up, passing the eyebrow to the forehead. I did feel pain – like pins and needles. As it moved, the pain lessened. When it reached my forehead I was able to remove it, and the pain was completely gone. I opened my eye and continued to work.

Recovering from Leukemia Within 17 Days

By Changer in China

I was often dizzy in June 1998. My gums were also bleeding and I had blisters on my lips. After consultation with doctors, I was diagnosed with late-stage leukemia and was advised to be hospitalized.

After several months of treatments my health did not improve. During that time I met others who eventually died from leukemia, which scared me. My illness symptoms worsened and it was clear that my life was coming to an end. After I returned home, my family prepared for my funeral.

My elder sister heard in February 1999 that some cancer patients had recovered after practicing Falun Dafa. She suggested that I learn the practice. After reading Zhuan Falun, I slept soundly that night. This gave me great confidence and I eagerly read the book and did the exercises every day.

Through Fa study, I learned that I should think of others first and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

I learned that I came down with this illness because I did wrong things and hurt others in the past and/or during my past lives.

All of my illness symptoms disappeared after 17 days. Good health is a blessing.

I hope that everyone can learn Falun Dafa and be blessed and protected.
