A Book That Changed Me
(Minghui.org) I experienced two prior miscarriages, so I took sick leave and stayed at home when I was pregnant for the third time. Even so, I had the symptoms of another miscarriage and checked into the hospital until I gave birth to my son.
My son often got sick since he was six months old, so I could not go back to work. I was so afraid of seeing his face turn rosy red, which meant that he had a high fever. I often stayed up all night to tend to him.
I was fortunate to obtain a precious book Zhuan Falun in 1996, when my son was four-years-old. The book changed my view of life; I no longer envied people who won lottery prizes or were more fortunate than me. I understood the relationship between loss and gain.
From then on, I stopped worrying about my son’s health. I understood more about how sickness was related to karmic law. The amazing thing was that my son no longer got sick. It really was as Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa) said:
“One person practicing, the whole family benefits...”. (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
When my son went to elementary school I said to him: “As long as you truly study hard, even if you score a zero on the test, I won’t reprimand you.”
I saw the smile on his face and asked: “If you really study hard, will you get a zero on your test?” My son answered amusingly: “No way!”
He went on to score among the highest in his class and ranked first for three years of high school. After he graduated from college, he did not look for a job and sat in front of the computer all day. He said he wanted to study abroad.
Many relatives were worried about him not being able to pass the entrance test and suggested that he should look for help in his study. Some suggested that we hire an agent to help him find a school abroad.
I was not worried at all. I felt everyone had their own destiny. I even joked with my son that he should go work as a doorman in an apartment building. He wryly remarked that they wouldn’t want him because he was not retired yet.
My son ended up going abroad to study one year later. During the time before he left home, I often had him help with family chores like cooking, cleaning, shopping for groceries etc.
I often went out to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa. He supported me by taking care of the household chores and even helped solve my computer problems. He also helped submit the list of those who agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations to the CCP withdrawal website. I never let my relatives know about those things.
If I didn’t cultivate in Dafa, I would not be able to treat my son this way. I lost my family because of the persecution and was forced to leave my son for 10 years. It is Zhuan Falun that changed my life and made me the person I am; admired by my friends and family.
