Returning to My True Home
(Minghui.org) I am a doctor and a Falun Dafa practitioner in China. Whenever my friends and I talk about diseases and health, I always use my experiences to demonstrate that practicing Falun Dafa is the best way for one to truly obtain good health. I learned from experience that unity of morality and matter is behind this powerful cultivation practice, and that by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, it can bring better health. The following is my experience.
Growing Up in the Communist Party's Military
My father worked in the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) military. I entered kindergarten for military personnel's family members at the age of three. Even though most people didn't have enough food (during the Great Famine), we enjoyed milk and bread in kindergarten. I loved dancing and singing when I was young. Everyone said I was a pretty little girl.
I became a singer in a military art troupe while most high school graduates were sent to the countryside during a campaign where educated urban youth were sent to the countryside and mountain areas for reform through labor. I personally witnessed the corruption in the CCP's military and how the CCP has brainwashed people with atheism. People lost respect for heavenly principles and no longer believed that good would be rewarded and bad would be punished. As money and power became the priority in people's minds, moral standards declined.
I often visited Beijing for singing competitions and performances, and had opportunities to know military officials, city officials, movie directors, and businessmen. I felt like I was living in a huge dye vat. Initially, I thought about making big money and getting famous, but I found this wasn't right because this dark path led to promiscuity. I refused to make money this way.
When it was time for me to retire from the military, I had to look for a job. An office director in the military made seven trips and tried his best to find a good job for me. He openly told me, “I can find you a good job in the city police department, but you have to marry my son in exchange.” He wasn't the only one. Several military officials wanted to help me find a good job using their connections, but wanted me to marry their sons in exchange. I declined all of them.
I happened to run into a former high school classmate. Hearing that I was looking for a job, she said, “My dad is a manager of an ordnance factory. I can ask him to give you a job in his factory, but you may have to be hired under the name of his daughter-in-law.” I seriously considered this option. My classmate and her family are nice people. I knew her brother who was a great person. The ordnance factory is across the street from my mother's home. She has poor health and needed me to take care of her. I agreed eventually. Because I had worked in a military field hospital, I was assigned to work in the clinic of the ordnance factory. I continued in the medical field and became a doctor.
Even though I wasn't completely corrupted after living in the dye vat of the CCP's military, I didn't know why I had come to live in this world.
Finding the Meaning of Life
In spring 1998, I got a copy of the book Zhuan Falun from a colleague. The principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance shook my heart. I thought, “Who dares to tell the truth in our society? Those who did have suffered retaliation. So many people have been killed in the CCP's political movements just for telling the truth! As for compassion, the compassionate people wouldn't have a chance to make money! If one follows tolerance, one would be bullied. This book promotes Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance! It's too righteous!”
After reading the book again and again, I learned that the reason for deteriorating moral standards is the loss of restrictions in people's minds, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance should be the criteria for measuring right and wrong. I felt my notions were corrected all of a sudden. I felt the sadness and horror of society's degenerate morality. Falun Dafa teaches cultivators to be better people who put others before themselves. My nature was awakened! I decided to follow Truthfulness-Compassion -Tolerance. It's the meaning of my life! I started my cultivation according to Dafa since then.
Soon after I started cultivation, I had experiences dealing with not-so-righteous people. The director of my clinic asked favors of women employees who got close to him in order for them to get promotions and raises. He retaliated against those who refused his requests. People knew he openly and shamelessly had immoral relationships.
He told me one day, “Stay late after work.” I said, “I can't.” I refused to play his game. He started to retaliate against me by denying me promotions and giving me three people's jobs to do.
The upper administration eventually found out about his immoral behavior. He was demoted and disciplined. He later died from cancer. His wife is a kind and honest woman. I often told her the facts of Falun Dafa. She told me, “I admire you for your righteousness. Falun Dafa can truly change people with Truthfulness-Compassion -Tolerance.”
It's true that the principles of Falun Dafa had corrected my degenerated human notions. The clinic leaders often flirted with and tried to take advantage of women employees. I wasn't strongly against it, because I didn't want to offend anyone. After cultivating, I realized my thoughts and behavior should conform to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance. I had to correct my degenerative view of relationships. A clinic leader told me, “You have changed.” I told him, “I cultivate in Falun Dafa now. Cultivation of Buddhahood starts from being a righteous person. I absolutely won't allow anything like this.
I had many diseases after I had my child, including rheumatoid arthritis, neurasthenia, and problems with my immune system and digestive system, facial paralysis, and others. I was almost disabled by my arthritis. I tried Western and Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and pain killers, but none of them could help me. Sometimes I couldn't even function for a half day.
After I started reading Zhuan Falun and correcting my behavior, my health experienced a drastic change. I slept soundly the night I read Zhuan Falun. Within a month, all my diseases were gone. I became a completely healthy person.
Master has purified my spirit and my body, and led me to a path to my true origin. No words can describe my gratitude to Master's grace! All I can do is to tell people what I have experienced, and hope more and more people will benefit from it. Most of my colleagues have learned the facts of Dafa. More than 1,000 of them have quit the Communist organizations they had previously joined.
