Falun Dafa Taught Me the Meaning of Life and Changed My Heart
(Minghui.org) I grew up as an atheist and did not believe in anything that I could not see with my own eyes. I cared only about my pride and success and considered this the meaning of life.
I had a hot temper, and my husband even offered to do more housework if I would just control my temper.
My health also went downhill. I developed insomnia, neuralgia, Meniere's disease, arrhythmia, hypotension, nephritis, arthritis, gynecological problems, and a herniated disc.
I was uncomfortable all the time and life was exhausting for me.
Discovering the Meaning of Life
A colleague mentioned to me that her husband practiced Falun Dafa, and it was wonderful.
“Your husband is so young,” I said. “Why does he believe in that kind of thing? Isn't that a practice for the elderly?”
“No. Young people who are healthy can also practice. It is a cultivation method, and it can improve people's morality.” After seeing my puzzled face, she added, “Forget it, you wouldn't understand!”
It was true that I did not understand what she said, however I noticed some obvious changes in her character. She used to be an impatient person and often argued a point to death. Now she became very calm when facing conflict and was always in good spirits.
I asked her about her recent changes. “It's because of Falun Dafa!” she exclaimed.
I was surprised. This qigong is really something! It can change your bad temper! I asked if I could practice, so she lent me a copy of Falun Gong.
I read the book, and it answered all the questions in my life. I suddenly understood the meaning of life! I could now become a good person. I felt so fortunate!
Becoming a New Person
I wanted to continue reading the book so, during breaks at work, I found a quiet room. There was very little light in the room, but every line I read seemed to be illuminated, and I read with ease.
Soon, others noticed the positive changes in me. My daughter said that she loved her “new” mother. My in-laws commented that my temper had improved.
My illnesses disappeared. My legs used to feel heavy when walking, but now I could climb the stairs quickly without feeling tired. My mind became clear and quick. I felt like a new person, a truly happy person.
I am so grateful to Master Li – The founder and Teacher of Falun Dafa. Though I have never seen him in person, I have benefited greatly from Dafa, and it did not cost me a penny. I will cultivate well to repay Master's mercy!
Hope for Mankind
At my job, I am in charge of a wholesale shoe account. The warehouse clerk told me the account indicated a 300 yuan shortage, and no one knew how it happened. I did not blame anyone. I just used 300 yuan from my own pocket to make it up.
Afterwards, the clerk said he should be partially responsible for the mistake and offered to pay.
“It's all right,” I said, “just pay more attention next time.”
He was very moved, “Falun Dafa taught you to be like this, didn't it?”
“Yes! Falun Dafa taught me to be a good person and always consider others first.”
“I want to learn Falun Dafa too,” he said. So I lent him a copy of Zhuan Falun.
The leaders at work recognized that I was trustworthy. They did not even check when I reported product prices or requested travel reimbursement. They knew a Falun Dafa practitioner would not lie. The positive energy from me also influenced my environment. My co-workers also became more caring and considerate. Just like it says in Zhuan Falun:
"The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities."
Many people knew it was Falun Dafa that changed me and asked about the practice.
One day, the general manager came to me: “I heard you practice qigong. You look healthy. What qigong is it?”
I told him it was Falun Dafa and he was interested in knowing more. So I bought more Falun Dafa books and gave them to him. I also explained how I benefited from the practice.
“This qigong is good!” the general manager exclaimed. “Everyone should follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!”
He then shared the books with the other supervisors. A lot of people at work began to practice Falun Dafa.
When the persecution began in 1999, the general manager already had a good understanding so he did not believe the regime's propaganda. He also protected practitioners in his company from being persecuted by the authorities.
Falun Dafa benefits individuals, their families, and society. It brings hope to mankind!
