Benefiting from Dafa: From Sadness to Happiness
(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa more than 10 years ago. Since then, I have become a happy person. My family have also benefited from Falun Dafa.
Although I have suffered hardships and tribulations during the past 10 years, my faith in Falun Dafa is firm.
Before I practiced Dafa there were many disagreements with my husband's family members, making life very unpleasant. Most of the disagreements were caused by jealousy and dislikes. I felt helpless, sad and disappointed, which affected my health.
Long-Term Resentments Dissolved
After I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998, my perspective on life changed and I let go of all my resentments.
When my husband's sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, I visited her in the hospital, although she used to bully me. As a practitioner, I had to set a higher standard for myself and follow the Falun Dafa teachings. So I took along some gifts. She was moved to tears. Our long-term resentment was dissolved.
From studying the main Dafa book Zhuan Falun, I understood that the purpose of my life is to return to my original, true self. Suffering is paying back debts that I had incurred in the past. It could very well be that I had treated my husband's family members badly in a prior life. By following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance my hatred and grievances were dissolved.
Whenever I met my husband's family during family events I treated them well and gave them gifts. I also get along well with my neighbors. With the improvement of my moral character, my health also improved. All my illnesses disappeared and I am happy and full of confidence.
My husband said, “you have become open minded since you started practicing Falun Dafa. All your illnesses have disappeared and you are always happy.”
A sister-in-law said, “You have completely changed since you started practicing Falun Dafa. You used to be always sad and had a long face. You got angry about everything. But now you can let go of everything and are always happy.”
Surviving Two Accidents
At work, I saw a wire on a pile of sand and decided to remove it. As I touched it, the wire stuck to me, and I received a shock. I screamed and immediately remembered that I am a practitioner, so I asked Master Li Hongzhi for help. The wire instantly fell to the ground. I told my co-workers that I received an electrical shock and that the Master of Falun Dafa had saved me. They witnessed the power of Falun Dafa.
When I was hit by a motorcycle, the driver was terrified and asked me if I was all right. I told him I was okay and that he could leave. But my friend stopped him and asked him to take me to the hospital for an examination.
“I am a Falun Dafa practitioner,” I said. “Practitioners do not blackmail other people.”
Family Members Benefit from Dafa
Seeing the changes in me, my husband became supportive of Falun Dafa and has benefited as well.
When he was building our house, a large iron plate fell from the roof and hit his head. A handful of his hair was torn from his head, but he was not bleeding. I told him that Falun Dafa protected him.
As he continued this work, another large plate came down and hit his shoulder. He was all right, except that his shoulder was bruised a little.
One day his leg was cut by a spinning, circular saw. By the time I returned with bandages, the cut had stopped bleeding. The wound healed within a few days.
When my father-in-law was 85 years old, he was diagnosed with cerebral thrombosis and was bedridden for several years. When it was my turn to look after him, I washed him, comforted him, and cooked different dishes for him. He could get up and move around with a cane. He was very grateful to me.
