Dafa Practitioners Are the Hope of the Future
(Minghui.org) It has been 19 years since I started to practice Falun Dafa. I witnessed my husband's recovery from cancer after becoming a Falun Dafa practitioner, which convinced me of the extraordinary nature of this cultivation practice.
Before he practiced Falun Dafa, we were at the brink of divorce. He used to be an alcoholic and had affairs. After he was diagnosed with cancer, he tried many treatments, but not one returned him to good health.
Someone introduced Falun Dafa to him 19 years ago, and 17 days later, his symptoms had disappeared. Dafa changed him. He stepped away from the temptations and turned into a kind and upright person.
He went with a group of people on a business trip. The company provided them young, beautiful ladies for their daily and nightly needs. As a Falun Dafa practitioner, he turned down any special treatment and avoided liquor as well as smoking cigarettes.
The others in his group were curious and asked him how come he did not accept anything outside of his work requirements.
“I practice Falun Dafa,” he told everyone in his group. “I can't just have an inappropriate relationship, in particular with the opposite sex.” Others were impressed and also wanted to learn Falun Dafa.
Experiencing the Extraordinary Power of Dafa
Qingxin, the father of one of my students, and Jingjing, the mother of another student, met during school activities, and ended up having an affair.
Qingxin discovered Falun Dafa and decided to practice it, and told Jingjing that he had to end the relationship. He told her that he learned a great deal from Falun Dafa and how important it was to abide by the Dafa principles. He also asked me to give her Falun Dafa informational materials. After reading the material, she decided to practice Falun Dafa as well.
Jingjing wrote in an experience sharing article, “We helped and took care of each other for four years, and I did not mind that he had a family. He became the most important thing in my life. When he told me one day that he had to stop the relationship because he began to practice Falun Dafa, it was like a bolt out of the blue, and I could not accept that. I was depressed, crying and felt I could not go on. At the darkest moment, I was introduced to Dafa and began reading the book Zhuan Falun.I read the Fa day and night and learned from the profound Fa teachings. My life changed from darkness to light because of the power of Dafa.”
She learned that one's words, deeds, and thoughts have to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. One should treat others with kindness and should be considerate and unselfish.
There are Fa teachings regarding the relationship between a man and a woman. One needs to keep one's chastity before marriage and maintain one's loyalty after marriage. Besides, abstinence from cigarettes and liquor is an important part of this cultivation practice.
She learned through first-hand experience, that not only her health improved, but her moral level also elevated. She got rid of her unhealthy habits and turned down requests for dates. She was deeply impressed with the power of Falun Dafa and said that “Dafa has the power to rectify a person, from the worst to the best state.”
Dafa Formed a Pure Land
“Here we ask people to walk a righteous path and to be truly good persons. There is nothing filthy or dirty involved, like out in society. We will purify anything not righteous and become, right up until we meet the standard for Consummation, people who benefit others and society.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Canada)
Master said again: “This is the only remaining piece of pure land in the human world. This kind of environment can truly raise the morality of human beings and make it noble. It can turn them into good people, and it can also change very bad people and return them to their best state.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Canada)
Falun Dafa practitioners are disciplined individuals who have formed a pure land in today's depraved society, They are the hope for the future. I hope people with a predestined relationship can also come to learn, read the book Zhuan Falun, discover the truth, no longer be deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) poisonous propaganda, not participate in the persecution, and choose a bright future for themselves.
