[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Teacher Guides the Way
(Minghui.org) May 13, 2017, was the day that Falun Dafa practitioners, their families, and their friends celebrated Master's birthday. It was also the 25th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public and the 18th World Falun Dafa Day.
I have been cultivating Dafa for 18 years. I would like to share how Falun Dafa has helped me and how I have helped people around me.
Falun Dafa Cured My Illnesses
Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had two back surgeries. I also suffered from heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, endometriosis, bronchitis, asthma, and erosive gastritis. I was in pain and misery. I could not walk without help and I could not lie down when I slept at night.
An ectopic pregnancy caused extensive bleeding. About a week after the surgery to correct the problem, a blockage from the flow of gas caused severe stomach pain and I had to be operated on again right away.
Because he was looking after me in the hospital, my husband did not get much rest. I felt very guilty, and could not stand my miserable life any longer. I begged him to take me home. I promised him that if he took me home, I would read the book Zhuan Falun.
When I was halfway through the book on the second day, I put it under my pillow and was preparing to fall asleep. At that moment, I saw a large law wheel spinning on top of my bed, emitting golden light.
I was stunned. It felt as if two hands forcibly pulled something out of my stomach. The sudden spasms caused me to cry out, which awakened my husband. After learning what had just happened, he was very excited and told me that Teacher Li must be cleansing my body for me.
Something burned inside my stomach. Then, after a few minutes, my stomach did not hurt anymore. This happened again a few days later, and afterward I was completely fine. I could eat and sleep like a healthy person. About two weeks later, I returned to work. My body felt light and I have not taken a single pill from then on.
Cultivating My Character
Master said in Zhuan Falun,
“I’ll tell you the truth: The entire cultivation process for a cultivator is one of constantly giving up human attachments.”
I was a very competitive person in the past and regarded fame and financial gain as my life pursuits.
Falun Dafa taught me the meaning of life and the principles of the universe. I understand that human attachments are trivial and I should get rid of them. The gatekeeper at work gave me a box with gifts from a friend of mine. I put the box on my desk and then went to the next room to check in. My coworkers opened the box and began to eat the pork sausages that my friend made.
The man whose desk is next to mine suddenly began cursing and threw a laptop computer at me. Everyone was shocked and could not understand why he was doing this. Being a Dafa disciple, I knew that everything happened for a reason, so I apologized to him, understanding that his religion prohibited him from eating pork.
Later that day, after everyone went home, that person asked me why I apologized to him even though I knew that he was wrong. He thought I would have been very angry with him.
I took the opportunity to tell him about Falun Dafa. Through that incident, my co-workers were deeply impressed with me and Falun Dafa.
Father Changes His Attitude toward Falun Dafa
My mother was diagnosed with pelvic cancer and was in excruciating pain when urinating. She needed to use the toilet constantly at night, and I had to carry her to the bathroom. The extended period of physical strain and lack of sleep took a toll on my body. Lymph nodes grew under my armpit and I developed a fever.
My mother’s doctor urged me to be hospitalized. I asked my sister to take care of my mother, and then I went home. I did the Falun Dafa exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts all night. The fever was gone the next day and the lymph nodes had shrunk. I went back to the hospital the next morning, refreshed and energetic.
Seeing me all fine, my father was convinced of the power of Falun Dafa. From then on, he no longer wanted me to stop cultivating in Dafa.
Teacher Protects Me
About six months after I began to cultivate Dafa, the persecution started. I was incarcerated four times for refusing to renounce my faith. I was forced to leave my home and become destitute and homeless in the end of 2001 to avoid being further persecuted.
This was huge pressure on me, but my firm faith in Dafa reminded me that I must do everything well. Although I came across numerous tribulations, with Teacher’s protection I have walked the path of Fa-rectification without regret.
I was once on a train with many copies of Falun Dafa brochures. A few minutes after I got on the train, policemen began to check passengers’ identification and search people and their bags. My ID card was confiscated by my work unit, so I had no government-issued IDs at all. I would have been arrested if the policemen discovered this.
I asked Teacher to keep the police from searching me. I approached a table where three soldiers were playing cards. I asked to join their card game and began to chat with them. When the police asked the soldiers where they were traveling from, the soldiers answered. One of them told the police that I was his sister and we were traveling together. The police left without asking me any questions.
About 30 minutes later, the police blocked all the doors that connected the coaches and began a second round of searching. I went to the bathroom before they entered our coach and began to send forth righteous thoughts. I heard the police saying that nobody was allowed to use the bathroom. About 20 minutes later, they left. I went back to my seat without incident.
As more police entered our coach, I sent forth righteous thoughts. I left the coach at the opposite end and stood in between the two coaches, looking outside while sending forth righteous thoughts at the same time. At that moment, a policeman tapped me on my shoulder asked why I was standing there. I told him that I was getting some fresh air. He left without asking further questions.
Helping People Understand the Facts of Falun Dafa
I was traveling on the train in 2011 and told the crew about Falun Dafa and the persecution. At first, only a few people listened to me, but later, more and more people came to listen. I raised my voice so that everyone could hear me clearly. Someone commented that what I said was true and some even clapped. Gradually I noticed that everyone in the coach was listening to me attentively. Before the train pulled into my station, I told them to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its associated organizations (CCP).
Some crew members and the captain saw me off. The captain said, “Please ride with us again.” Someone else said, “Hope to see you again. I want to hear more about Falun Dafa in the future.”
I helped a middle-aged man carry his bags to a bus. After sitting down in front of me, he turned around and thanked me for helping him. I began to tell him about quitting the CCP and the facts of Falun Dafa. I explained to him why it was so important to do that.
I used examples from the CCP’s history to show that its core nature is against humanity. I reminded him of the vicious things that the CCP had done to the Chinese people since its beginning. I added that Heaven would not forgive the CCP for what it had done. The man told me that he worked for the public security bureau, but I replied that I just wanted to help him. He agreed to quit the CCP and, before getting off the bus, told me to take good care of myself.
My family was originally from a rural village. I traveled back there several times to talk to people, help them understand the facts of Falun Dafa, and quit the CCP. With my help, eight people quit th CCP.
