Extraordinarily Blessed for Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I met a person some time ago who could tell someone's fortune by doing a facial reading. He said that I was blessed and he would like to read my face. I declined the offer because I knew that I was already extraordinarily blessed.
Falun Dafa Practitioners are Blessed
I used to have many health problems, including uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and anemia. After an operation, I became so weak that I could not work or live a normal life. When I heard that my older brother was having an affair and had left his sick wife at home alone, my sadness was beyond description. It was then that I finally read the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, which a colleague had given me. After starting to read the first section in Lecture Four, “Loss and Gain,” I could not put the book down.
When I finished reading Zhuan Falun, my body became so light that climbing stairs became effortless. I forgot that I had been sick and did not notice when my health was restored. I was so amazed that I introduced Falun Dafa to everyone I met. Many of my relatives started to practice Falun Dafa. One of them used to have a tumor and another had a severe skin disease, and both recovered after they practiced Falun Dafa. The relationship between my mother-in-law and me was like mother and daughter and our family life became harmonious.
Persecution Did Not Stop Me from Practicing Dafa
Jiang Zemin initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa and its practitioners in July 1999. I went to Beijing to petition for the right to practice Dafa, and was illegally sentenced to two years in a forced labor camp. In the camp, I was beaten, force-fed, and handcuffed to a bed while beaten with electrical batons. Because I remained firm in my practice, the camp workers demanded that my sister force me to give up my belief. My sister could not stand the pressure and fainted while in the camp. My mother was so worried that she died.
My husband could not stand the immense pressure and divorced me. He took our child and left me with nothing. I told him that as long as both of them were happy, I really didn't want anything. I would not look for another husband because I still loved him even after we divorced.
With the help of another sister, I started to work in a different city. My company was a newly formed small business. I followed the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and cleaned the office and bathroom every day. Sometimes I had to work overtime but I did not complain. When I heard my colleagues were sick, I always sent them some food.
Most of my coworkers were married and lived apart from their families. After a time, some couples formed and they started to live together. I told them, “We are parents. Our behavior is seen by our children. If all of us behave like that, what will our children do in the future?”
When I left the company, all my colleagues said that I was a good person.
My coworkers knew I was a Falun Dafa practitioner. On the eve of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, police officers came to the company to find me, illegally searched my dormitory, and confiscated Zhuan Falun.
I resigned after working for five years in this company. My manager gave me 2,000 yuan in recognition of my dedication.
From Rejections to Acceptance of Dafa
My older sister, who fainted in the labor camp, wanted to find a housekeeper for her parents-in-law. But she did not trust a stranger to do the job. Since she suffered because of me, I felt sorry for her and her husband. They didn't fully understand the facts about Dafa. Therefore, I decided to work for her parents-in-law and did not care much about my earnings.
The family was happy and nervous when I first arrived. They were glad that I was a relative, but worried that I would be arrested again. In the beginning, I just talked to them with a smiling face and didn't mention anything related to Falun Dafa. I would make whatever they wanted to eat and kept the entire house clean and tidy.
I then began to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. They turned from not wanting to hear anything to accepting everything. They saw the benefits, accepted it, and turned from misunderstanding to understanding. All 13 relatives of the family decided to resign from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. One of them was the party secretary of a company and had worked with the 610 Office to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. He watched all the information I gave him, including the Shen Yun shows, a truth-clarifying DVD, and an article about the lawsuits against Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Dafa. As a result, he thoroughly understood the facts.
The entire family treated me very well. They no longer worried that I might be arrested. I followed the Dafa principles when spending the household money. Therefore, they trusted me completely and never questioned what I bought. I tried to separate their money from my own money. However, if I forgot to separate it, I would pay for everything.
The older man had a small dog, which he loved and thus fed it the best rib meat. I felt it wasn't right. Then, a thought suddenly surfaced, “I had been practicing Falun Dafa for 20 years and was healthy. Practitioners could stop eating meat. I became a vegetarian and didn't care what they fed the dog.
The family lived in a wealthy area. I understood why it was arranged for me to be there. Therefore, I delivered truth-clarification materials to the neighbors and told them the facts at every opportunity. Wealthy people also needed to understand the truth.
Doing Well Despite the Persecution
I lost everything because of the persecution. However, I never forgot the fact that “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Through my truth clarification over the past years, my brother and sisters fully understood why Falun Dafa was beneficial and supported me.
I went back to my hometown and clarified the truth to my ex-husband. After listening to my words, he agreed to resign from the CCP. He gave me more than 300,000 yuan. I used the money to buy a condo and had my child join me.
From having no place I went to owning a condo, and from losing my child to living with my child. Living close to both of my older sisters, they know that my health is good and hope that I can take care of them in the future. All my relatives and friends think I am fortunate.
Dark clouds eventually disappear. There is no need to do fortunetelling or face reading. Falun Dafa practitioners are always blessed. Those who keep Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in their hearts and minds will be blessed. Those who follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance will be fortunate and live a long life.
