Falun Dafa Changed a Tyrant
(Minghui.org) I am 73 years old, and I started to practice Falun Dafa in 2005. Before I began practicing I was a tyrant and everyone in the village was afraid of me.
Before I started to practice Falun Dafa, I suffered from many illnesses, including inflammation of the lining of the stomach, anemia, gallstones and liver stones. I always felt dizzy, and could not eat or sleep well. I was miserable and took it out on everyone around me. I had a bad temper and cursed at everyone I interacted with. I especially hated my brother-in-law and was determined to never talk to him again.
Amazing things happened shortly after I began to practice Falun Dafa. All my illnesses disappeared. My complexion became rosy. Despite my age, I could easily walk up the stairs. I also rode a scooter and helped my son with the farm work.
Last February my husband and I went to help on our son's farm. I wanted to show him how kind and healthy I was now because he had not been supportive of my practicing Falun Dafa. I used a large rake to move the straw out of the field. In the beginning, it was difficult, but the more I worked, the easier it was and the lighter my body felt. My husband was amazed and said to my son: “Your mother is so strong now! She's even stronger than me. Falun Dafa is great and we should support her.” My son did not say anything but I knew he was not against Dafa.
Decades of Long Resentment Resolved
For years, I refused to talk to my brother-in-law and I even taught my children to hate him. I was determined not to have any contact with him for the rest of my life. However, I became kind and broad-minded after I began to practice Dafa.
When my brother-in-law passed away in 2015, his wife contacted me and asked if my husband could attend his funeral. I told her that I no longer hated her husband because I had begun practicing Falun Dafa and that I would attend the funeral as well. She was very happy and said that I had truly changed. She repeatedly thanked me. I brought a lot of informational materials and some desk calendars with information about Falun Dafa to share with our relatives.
At the funeral, the relatives listened. They knew how abusive I had always been and they noticed how I had changed. I told them that I was healthy now and I no longer needed to take any medicine. I asked them that they not listen to the Party's propaganda which slanders Falun Dafa. They wanted to learn more about Dafa. After I spoke, several people withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
Even my brother-in-law's neighbors knew how I had hated him for years. They were surprised to see me at the funeral and remarked how I had changed. Several said that Falun Dafa is great.
Getting Rid of Bad Habits
I used to curse at anyone who I thought offended me. I was well known for this in my village, and my friends, relatives, and neighbors avoided me. After I started to practice Falun Dafa, I knew that I needed to get rid of this bad habit. At first, it was difficult not to swear at people. But I strictly monitored what I said and I finally stopped cursing.
For years, I cursed out my sister-in-law and she hated me. However, after I began practicing and I stopped cursing her, she began cursing at me. She said that I had cursed her for years and that she needed to pay me back. So, for an entire year, whenever she saw me, she immediately swore at me, but I remained calm. She was touched and said: “I admire you. You are so much nicer now.” She stopped cursing at me, and we get along well now.
When I stopped cursing out my husband he began cursing at me. One day he cursed at me for no reason. I got angry but did not curse back. I knew that I was repaying the karma I had accumulated.
Afterwards, my husband was convinced that I had indeed changed. He said that he would not curse at me anymore and would live with me peacefully. He was sure that he would be blessed by Falun Dafa.
Falun Dafa is Amazing
I filed a lawsuit against the former Chinese president for persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners in 2015. A few days later when I was meditating, I saw a layer of negative substances leaving my body.
Other practitioners said that my skin looked soft and youthful, and I looked 10 years younger than my actual age. My youthful appearance shows people the benefits one derives from practicing Falun Dafa. They know how badly I behaved before, and when they see the positive changes, they know Falun Dafa is amazing.
