Former Brain Tumor Patient Grateful for Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a math teacher. At the age of 36, I suddenly fell while standing at the podium in a classroom. The diagnosis was that I had a serious brain tumor. I subsequently had severe headaches, and sometimes fell down, foamed at the mouth, and even lost consciousness.
I suddenly became ill one night in my hometown. I then ran out of the house without any clothing when the temperature outside was around zero degrees Fahrenheit and fell down repeatedly. I was eventually found curled up on the cold ground.
My hopeless mother had to call the police for help. Fortunately, an acquaintance found me and called my family to come get me. I was almost frozen to death. This was what my mother told me later, as I wasn’t aware what had happened. There were many such incidents. I suffered a lot because of the tumor.
My school's principal approved extended sick leave for me. While on leave I met a lady who had suffered from this same disease for several years. Although her illness was less serious than mine, she could not stand up and trembled before collapsing when there was an attack. She had received a craniotomy and took all kinds of medicine, which hadn’t relieved the condition. I looked at myself and felt even more hopeless. I told myself in my heart that I would try to live day by day.
My mother soon came to take care of me. At that time, she had been practicing Falun Dafa for nearly two years. Before practicing Falun Dafa, my mother had severe rheumatoid arthritis. Because of the arthritis, she couldn't do farm work and sometimes could not even walk. She took so much medicine that it caused most of her teeth to loosen. After she started practicing Falun Dafa, however, she became able to walk swiftly. Her improvement was rather amazing.
One day she said to me, “Let us practice Falun Dafa together. Only the Fa can help you.”
I believed in the Fa after witnessing her miraculous improvement. Moreover, I had no choice, as I had lost confidence in Western medicine. So I threw away all my medicines and started Falun Dafa cultivation practice.
I started cultivating in 2010. I didn’t know how to improve my xinxing at first nor how to look inside, or how to think of others first. I could read the Fa, however. Even though I had a strong notion of seeking a cure for my disease, our compassionate Master still cleaned up my body and eliminated karma for me. The number of attacks diminished, and the time between symptoms became longer and longer, which gave me great confidence. During that time, I believed in Master and did not take any medicine.
I later began to understand how to improve my xinxing and how to become a true practitioner. I eventually rarely had symptoms. When I did feel uncomfortable, I took it lightly and firmly believed that it would pass. I haven’t had any shots or taken any pills for the past eight years. I can now work normally. Is this not a miracle?
Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had a bad temper and fought with others over minor trifles. I often beat my daughter badly, making her cry. Once, on the night before the college entrance exam, I quarreled with my daughter again for unknown reasons and in anger I broke her glasses.
She cried and complained, “How can I take such an important exam tomorrow without my glasses?”
My husband was very angry about what I did, and we fought again. They were both unhappy with me, and our family was immersed in conflict.
I changed after I began practicing Falun Dafa. On the one hand, I knew how to become a good person in accordance with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I smiled and spoke to others in a gentle tone, and always treated others with peaceful composure. I also read the book Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and realized that my previous bad behavior and attitude, such as being overly competitive and fighting relentlessly, resulted from being influenced by Party culture. I focused on removing these Party culture influences and reviving my own kindness.
My daughter and husband soon noticed great changes in me. My daughter likes to talk with me now, and my husband understands that Falun Dafa is good. He’s seen through the Chinese Communist Party's lies about Falun Dafa. I’ve also shared my story with relatives and friends, who have also changed their attitudes toward Dafa, and have benefited from it.
I was so fortunate to have found Falun Dafa in time, and am so fortunate to have a chance to write this article. I am glad that I can share my story with more people!
I would like to express my gratitude toward Master, who gave me a second life! It is Master who gave me a complete and happy family!
