Endless Benefits for Everyone
(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. I wanted to practice it because I thought that it could heal my illnesses, and I had many problems at the time such as chronic bronchitis, allergies, and heart disease, to name but a few.
My life was full of suffering. Not only was my health failing, but my husband was very abusive and often beat me and our child. I believed that all my suffering was caused by him.
One evening when I was taking a stroll after dinner, I ran into my aunt, who was on her way to do the Falun Dafa exercises. When I asked her if the practice could heal my heart disease, she replied, “It can heal any disease.”
The following day, I found the practice site and learned the exercises. I didn’t know what cultivation was yet, and I was there only for healing and fitness. I could never have imagined the tremendous changes that would take place in me after taking up the practice.
For example, I used to have to hold the rail when I climbed the stairs to our apartment. When I got to our floor, I would be so out of breath that I had to lay down to rest. Soon after I began doing the Falun Dafa exercises, however, my body felt as light as air. I also haven’t taken a single pill or supplement since I began practicing. I am in my mid-50s now and I can carry a 55-pound sack of flour up to the seventh floor without getting winded at all.
My temper has also improved. After I began to conduct myself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, if I encountered any conflicts, I would look within for the problem rather than blaming others. My family members changed too and became very loving toward one another. My husband’s coworkers said that he was lucky to have me as his wife.
My Son Changed
My husband and I often fought and it affected our son very much. He developed a very bad temper and didn’t do well at school. After I started to practice Falun Dafa, I read Zhuan Falun to him and helped him learn to conduct himself according to Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. His temper gradually changed and he became respectful toward adults. His schoolwork improved and he became a very kind person. He was later admitted to one of the best high schools in our area.
When he was about to graduate from college, all his classmates were working hard on applying for graduate school. It was right at the time that the persecution of Falun Dafa was launched by the former dictator of China, Jiang Zemin. I was illegally arrested, and my son began working hard to get me released, which meant he didn’t have much time to apply for graduate school. Yet he was still accepted to a good school under a full scholarship including room and board.
When he graduated from college the unemployment rate was very high. Yet he was accepted by many of the companies he applied to work for. Two years later he started his doctorate degree. All our family and friends look to him as a role model. His young cousin asked him how he did so well in school. He replied, “When you know how to be a good person, everything else is simple.”
Liver Cancer Gone
My husband had a lot of health issues. When he was young he had a weak digestive system. As an adult, he had a very bad temper and was often depressed. Whenever he was at home, the air seemed frozen. In 2004 he was diagnosed with liver cancer. This made him very nervous and he couldn’t eat or sleep.
He saw the changes in me after I took up Dafa, so he decided to try the practice to see if it could help him too. In no time, he quit smoking and started to live a stable life. About half a year later, he woke me up in the middle of the night and said, “Master Li took the cancer out of my body.” He told me that the cancer was pushed out through his back.
I felt his back and found the seven bumps as large as walnuts still there. He soon went in for an exam at the hospital, and the doctors told him that the cancer was completely gone.
My Grandson Is Another Beneficiary
My daughter-in-law had endometriosis before she married my son, which should have made it hard for her to get pregnant. But soon after they were married, she became pregnant. When she was getting an exam in the hospital, the doctor told her that the child might have a heart problem. She then went to the hospital twenty days before she was due and everyone was worried about a premature birth. I wasn’t worried, because I knew that the Master of Falun Dafa, Mr. Li Hongzhi, was looking after us and that nothing bad would happen.
Indeed, Master said:
“...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
The delivery, of course, went smoothly. My grandson is now almost two years old, and he is so lively, outgoing, and smart.
Falun Dafa and Master changed my fate and granted me a happy and harmonious family. Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you, Master. I hope more Chinese people can benefit from Dafa.
