Master Gave Me a Second Chance in Life
(Minghui.org) I was diagnosed with end-stage breast cancer and given only four months to live back in 2012. By the grace of Falun Dafa, I am still alive and I am now 64 years old.
Falun Dafa Granted Me a Second Life
When I discovered a lump in my breast, I went for an exam at a hospital. I was told that I had breast cancer and needed surgery immediately. Before I was operated on, a friend came to visit and told me to have faith in Jesus Christ and I would be alright. After I was discharged from the hospital, I became a devout Christian. But I felt sick again within less than a year, and, when I went back to the hospital, the cancer had metastasized to my lymph nodes. I was given only four months to live.
I suddenly remembered that one of my relatives had once told me about Falun Dafa. He told me about the healing power of Dafa, but I did not believe him then. Now I had no more options, so I asked him if I could still practice Falun Dafa in my current condition. He encouraged me to read the book first and then he taught me the exercises.
I just focused on studying the Fa and doing the exercises and let go of my fear and worry about death. My blood pressure was very high then, 180. But I felt relaxed and comfortable after reading the book and exercising. Yet I was not quite convinced; how could it be so miraculous? I went to the hospital for another exam, and everything was normal!
From that point on, I believed in nothing but Falun Dafa. I will never stop studying the teachings. I was so weak before that I could not pick up my grandson. After practicing Falun Dafa for just one month, I was able to carry my 6-month-old grandson downstairs all by myself (we live on the 7th floor of an apartment building). My relatives and neighbors were all impressed and witnessed the wonder of Falun Dafa.
A Stick Warning
After I began cultivation, I regained my health. But my cultivation was not yet solid, and there were still lots of attachments that I needed to relinquish. When my son and daughter-in-law found a job in another city in 2014, they asked me to come help them with their son.
I should have known, since I was a cultivator, that my improved health was not for me to live a happy, ordinary life and that I should carry out my responsibilities as a cultivator. I did not quite understand the Fa teachings then. I only wanted to take care of my grandson.
When I got to the train station, my slacks got caught in the elevator and I got a long open wound on my leg. I still did not enlighten to it, and, as soon as I got better, I went on to take care of my grandson. Even though I was studying the Fa, I slacked off in doing the three things that I should do. After two years, my health declined, and I went home.
Six months later, my daughter-in-law wanted me back to take care of my grandson and I went again. I was attached to ordinary people's leisure, and conflicts between me and my daughter-in-law got intense. Whenever she fought with my son, I got upset and stood up for my son. It began with verbal exchanges, and later she began smashing things. Finally, she threw a beer bottle at me. I suddenly awakened! I had been behaving like an ordinary person, enjoying a comfortable life, and had forgotten who I really was! Thank goodness for the stick warning! I returned home and tried my best to get back on the path of cultivation.
Saving People by Talking about the Persecution
After I returned home, I realized that it was Master who brought me home to do the three things well and to catch up. With more intense Fa study, I truly understood that my life was renewed for Dafa, and I wanted to be a true cultivator. From that point on, I have studied the Fa in the morning and gone out in the afternoon to clarify the truth. I allow nothing and nobody to interfere with my routine.
The winter of 2017 in Harbin was the coldest in living memory, but that did not prevent me from going out. I would have a fever at times and thought I'd maybe lie down and get better. But if I did, I got worse. So I would get up and continue. The results were usually positive: I saved people and my fever went away! I approached people in the park, the shopping mall, and on the street. Many who learned about the persecution of Falun Dafa showed their gratitude.
My experience validated the wonder of Falun Dafa, and my friends and relatives now all have a good understanding of Falun Dafa.
One day I went to a park and did not realize that the police had conducted a massive arrest of Falun Dafa practitioners. I sat on a bench and a plainclothes agent approached me. I told him about the persecution and he showed me his ID: he was a criminal police officer. I was not frightened and just continued.
He said, “Because of your age, if you were a man I'd arrest you right away.” I told him that, even if that were the case, he still should not arrest me, because all Dafa practitioners were good people. He told me to go home quickly, that the campaign of arrests would last a few days. I realized that his understanding side had done the right thing. I went back to the park the next day.
I met all sorts of people in the park, good, kind, decent, indecent, and even secret agents. I remember what Master said,
“I said that just by remaining unmoved you could handle all situations.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Canada Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference V)
No matter who you are, I will save you. I believe Falun Dafa is almighty and that one righteous mind will subdue a hundred evils. I've been able to help almost everyone understand the truth and choose a bright future.
Master gave me a second chance in life. I am grateful to be a Fa-rectification period disciple. I will do the three things diligently and well and follow Master home.
