How Falun Dafa Changed Me
(Minghui.org) After I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2014, my mind and body went through a dramatic lift. My family members were also blessed.
A Miserable Life
I suffered from Ménière's disease since I was young. I often had headaches and dizziness. Later, I developed heart disease, arthritis, and frozen shoulder. I couldn't fully open my mouth, which caused difficulty eating.
Even worse, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My mother came to care for me when I went through radiation treatment.
My marriage and family life was a disaster. My husband just ignored me. My son was born with a mental disability. My husband enjoyed having fun for himself, and didn't care about the family. I learned later that he was having an affair. I could no longer stand him and filed for divorce.
Luckily, I met my current husband. He was very sympathetic to me and cared for me and my son.
My severe health conditions made it hard for me to keep a job. I finally found a cashier's job that I liked. My boss was satisfied with my work, too. However, after a while, I could no longer stand for eight hours. My boss adjusted my work to part-time but, after a while, I couldn't even stand for a few hours. I had no choice but to resign. I didn't know when my suffering would ever end.
Saved by Falun Dafa
At a party with my husband's brother and sister in 2014, his sister, who practiced Falun Dafa, played a DVD of a Shen Yun performance. I had a headache that day but, in order not to ruin others' enjoyment, I forced myself sit and watch. Gradually, I was fully absorbed in the performance. I no longer had a headache.
“What a wonderful performance,” I said to my sister-in-law, “Your Master is so great! Can I join you?”
I started practicing Falun Dafa.
Two weeks after I began to practice Falun Dafa, my health improved. I could fully open my mouth. My heart rate became normal. I didn't experience headaches or dizziness anymore.
My former boss asked me if I could return to work for him part-time. Two weeks later, I switched to full-time. I no longer felt tired.
Family Members Blessed
I read Zhuan Falun along with my mentally challenged son. I also asked him to copy the book. He is now healthy. He used to hit others whenever he was unhappy. Now he can hold back his anger even when others mistreat him.
Due to back pain, lymphoma, and several other diseases, my mother was bedridden. I told her many miraculous stories of Falun Dafa. I asked her to recite “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She recited these words continually. I also asked her to listen to Master's Fa lectures, since she couldn't read.
A few days later, mother's lymphoma was gone. She had a bought of bloody urination after one week but she was not afraid at all. “Master is taking care of me now!” she said to me, understanding that her body was being cleansed.
She got out of bed and was able to walk! Her other diseases were also gone.
My husband was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015. He went through two surgeries. I played Master's Fa lectures to him after the surgery and told him to repeat “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” He quickly recovered from the surgery.
I also went through a test on money. A couple who were our friends borrowed some money from us, using their house as collateral, to do business. For several years they did not pay us back. We filed a lawsuit to get our money back.
The couple bribed the court. My assigned attorney avoided attending the court hearing. The judge declared that we actually owed them money.
We filed an appeal. The appeal court adjudicated that they should pay back our principle, but no interest. I found this hard to accept. Then I realized that this could be a tribulation to help me improve my xinxing.
I read Master's teaching “True Cultivation” in Essentials for Further Advancement:
“My truly cultivating disciples, what I have taught you is the Fa for cultivation of Buddha and Dao. Nonetheless, you pour out your grievances to me over the loss of your worldly interests, rather than feeling upset for being unable to let go of ordinary human attachments. Is this cultivation? Whether you can let go of ordinary human attachments is a fatal test on your way to becoming a truly extraordinary being. Every disciple who truly cultivates must pass it, for it is the dividing line between a cultivator and an everyday person.”
I saw that I had a strong attachment to money. After discussing the situation with my husband, we decided to accept the appeal verdict.
