Husband Changed from Hostility to Accepting Dafa
(Minghui.org) I received a DVD about Falun Dafa in my mailbox in 2004. I cried after watching it. I felt that I had signed a contract with Master before coming to the human world, and decided right away to listen to the audio version of Master’s lectures.
However, my husband was poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) propaganda about the practice. He brought in many of our relatives and they tried to stop me from practicing Falun Dafa. I cried again. My father told my mother that he had never seen me cry like that.
Although I read Zhuan Falun and burned incense to respect Master, I was not diligent. It was not until 2009 that I studied the Fa steadfastly and did the exercises with other practitioners. I realized that I could never give up the practice.
We memorized the Fa and shared our experiences. I felt I had improved significantly. I dreamed that Master held my hand and took me to very high places and that I broke through many cultivation levels.
In less than a week’s time, Master had cleansed my body. I felt that he had taken apart my body and put it back together. In a dream I saw three angels helping cleanse my body and that I bled a lot. They kept assuring me that it was not an illness. When I woke up, I knew that Master was cleansing my body for me.
Kind Thoughts Change People’s Attitudes Toward Dafa
One afternoon my neighbor called me and told me that a policeman was waiting for me in my house and that I should not go home. I was a bit scared and told a fellow practitioner, who then told me to negate the old forces arrangements and have firm belief in Master and Dafa.
We went to my sister-in-law’s house to send forth-righteous thoughts. We focused on clearing out the persecution by the evil beings in another dimension. During the process, I felt that Master was watching over and protecting me.
Another week went by. I was on the way to the market to clarify the truth in the morning. My neighbor called again and told me that my husband asked me to go to my parent’s home to hide. Two neighborhood committee staff had come to my home. I decided to face them.
On my way home, I ran into one of the policewomen. She had a guilty look on her face. I asked her in a calm voice if she had just gone to my home. I told her not to harass me again, not to be a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which had persecuted millions of people and Falun Dafa, but to find herself a way out. She left in a panic before I finished my sentence.
When I went to the neighborhood committee, the director approached me and said: “You shouldn’t always distribute Dafa informational materials. If anything happens to you, we cannot protect you. Are you leading others to do this?”
I got defensive and spoke to him in a challenging voice: “Why can’t I go out? I can’t go out to buy groceries? I have to do the exercises at home, right? Didn’t you come with the police to arrest me? I am awakening people's conscience by distributing Falun Dafa truth clarification fliers. There is nothing wrong with Falun Dafa! I hope you can accept the truth about this cultivation practice.”
Once I ran into two people from the neighborhood committee and invited them to my house for tea. I told them the truth about Falun Dafa and about the tremendous changes I experienced once I practiced Dafa. I told them to not believe what the CCP has said, that Jiang Zemin used the entire country’s media to defame Falun Dafa and its practitioners, and that Jiang and the entire CCP would face punishment. I also advised them to quit the CCP and its youth organizations.
One of them said, “I was going to ask you to quit the practice, who would know that it would turn out to be the other way around.”
Finally Practicing and Studying Openly
My husband is a kind and honest person. He worked for the CCP and knew how evil they were. Since I took up the practice, he has tried many times to stop me from practicing. He tore up my truth clarification materials and destroyed my Dafa books, Master’s photos, and anything else that had to do with Dafa. He said many bad things about the practice. He even lured me into a brainwashing center.
I cried often. I was so upset that I didn’t want to be with him anymore. However, Master said:
“… a Dafa disciple, or a cultivator, has no enemies. The only thing you have a role in is saving people, and you have nothing to do with using human means and human principles to punish or pronounce judgment on people.” (“Teaching the Fa in the City of Chicago” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference VII)
When I read Master's Fa, my heart awakened. My husband and I have a strong predestined relationship. And he has a kind nature. He behaved this way due to his fear of the CCP. He is the person I am closest to, and not my enemy. Practitioners have no enemies.
I ignored him and was passively aggressive to him, which is human behavior. I was punishing him using ordinary means. That is not what a practitioner should do. If I leave him, it will deepen his misunderstanding of Dafa. That would destroy him and his relatives and friends, and it will cause a lot of negative effects in society. I can’t let this happen.
Therefore, I resumed my care for him. I cooked delicious food, washed his laundry, and took very good care of him.
“The Fa is merciful to all beings, but at the same time it's solemn and dignified.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Lantern Festival”)
I not only took care of him in his daily life, but I also taught him what is right and wrong.
“Since ancient times, men were women’s everything,” I said. “I have borne your children and taken care of your house; thus I deserve your respect. Other practitioners' husbands defend their wives with their life when the policemen are trying to arrest them.”
I continued, “After I took up the practice, you saw the improvement in my health. My perfect health has saved you a lot of money in medical expenses. You don’t have to worry about me. We simply ask people not to believe the CCP’s lies.”
When he was in a good mood, I said more. If he was not in a good mood, I said less. I also installed New Tang Dynasty Television satellite in our house. Slowly, his attitude toward Dafa changed.
Now, he no longer bothers me when I practice at home. He allows me to have truth clarification materials at home. When the police came, he blocked them and had me hide. He finally protected Dafa books and Dafa practitioners.
