Family and Friends Change from Being Against Dafa to Practicing Dafa
(Minghui.org) My relatives and friends went from being against Dafa to cultivating in Dafa after witnessing the power of Dafa and how it changed me.
Obtaining the Fa Changed Me
Within one month of beginning Falun Dafa cultivation, all my illnesses disappeared. I have not only obtained a healthy body, but I have also come to understand the true meaning of life.
“A person should return to his original, true self—that’s actually the true purpose of being human. So, once somebody wants to cultivate, they’d say his Buddha-nature has come out.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
I feel very fortunate, for I have obtained what one truly needs in life. The moment I began cultivating I decided that I would practice Dafa until the very end. From the first day I obtained Dafa, on April 28, 1998, to this day, I never stopped studying the Fa, doing the exercises, or spreading the Fa. I have also been clarifying the facts in order to save sentient beings.
With practitioner’s help, I learned how to use a computer, surf the web, as well as download and print documents. Later on, I purchased a laser printer to print Master’s new articles and various Dafa books. My family-based printing center has been running smoothly since Day One.
From Being Controlling to Being Accommodating
I used to control my family in all matters. I could hardly be taken advantage of by others, and had a very strong attachment to self-interest.
“Our discipline focuses directly on your mind. When something is at stake, or when you’re having problems with somebody, whether you can take those things lightly, that’s the key.” (The Fourth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
What I first needed to let go was my attachment to self-interest, as well as my competitive mentality. I gradually rectified myself during Dafa cultivation. At first, I changed my tone for the better. Thus, when my husband vented his anger, I could endure.
The relationship with my relatives has also become harmonious. They have seen that I changed completely. I no longer have a competitive attitude, and became considerate in everything I did.
After I let go of my attachment to self-interest, I turned financial control over to my husband, which would have been far from my mind in the past.
As to the inheritance from my father-in-law, I told my husband to let it go. Moreover, I gave the relocation fee of 100,000 yuan to my son’s mother-in-law as a gift.
When I helped my brother order commodities, the merchant accidentally charged me less. Upon realizing this, I gave them the portion owed. They were surprised, and I told them it was because I practiced Dafa.
Witnessing the Power of Dafa: Relatives Obtain the Fa
The changes in me made my relatives and friends go from being against Dafa to practicing Dafa. For example, my son’s in-laws also started to cultivate in Dafa.
His father-in-law was in the home renovation business. Once, when he used a nail gun, a nail shot into his eye. He was taken to the emergency room and had the nail removed at the hospital. However, after a month’s treatment, his retina began to fail. His doctor suggested he transfer to a different hospital, out of concern he would lose the good eye which wasn’t injured.
I visited him and told him that only Master could save him. Both my son's in-laws agreed, studied the Fa and learned the Dafa exercises. When my son’s father-in-law was doing the second set of exercises, he saw through the wounded eye a small Falun spinning, with the color constantly changing. He thought it amazing.
My brother-in-law obtained the Fa after them. Before he retired, he was the person in charge of the factory, and was loyal to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). When I gave him the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party he didn’t dare to read it, but returned it to me. He also badmouthed Dafa, and tried to stop me from practicing Dafa..
Later on, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer, and underwent an operation at a township hospital. Soon after, he had blood in his urine, and two newly grown tumors. He went through another operation and the doctor injured his bladder.
The doctor was afraid that he would die at the hospital, and the hospital might be liable for malpractice. Therefore, the hospital tried multiple times to discharge him, saying he wouldn’t heal unless a miracle occurred. He was transferred and admitted to his local hospital.
I went to visit him and he let me know that he wanted to practice Dafa. He listened to audio recordings of Master’s lectures. He was discharged after 11 days with only a catheter to drain urine from the bladder.
After he watched a video of Shen Yun, my brother-in-law suddenly noticed that his catheter had disappeared. The doctor found that his bladder had recovered on its own and he longer needed a catheter.
Hearing this, he put up his hand and shouted in the hospital, “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Greetings, Master Li!”
My nephew’s new wife had been divorced by her first husband because of her infertility. I asked her and my sister to recite “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful.” Within 15 days, I learned that my nephew’s wife was pregnant. Now their child is two years old.
My sister-in-law looked sickly when I saw her during the Chinese New Year celebration. She walked with her back bent, and her wrist had a big blister with the surrounding area swollen and numb. The doctor was concerned that the root was too deep, so the decision was not to operate.
I asked her to do the exercises with me. During the first three days her hand shook uncontrollably. But, on day four, she no longer felt much pain, and her blister turned a lighter color. One week later, she had recovered from all her illnesses. She also decided to practice Dafa.
My brother went out of town for some construction work this past March. During that time, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was holding the “Two Party Congress.” He was arrested for no reason and taken to a detention center. During his physical examination, they found a shadow in his liver. They suspected he had developed liver cancer.
My brother was petrified, but then remembered to recite “Falun Dafa is wonderful, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful.” He was released by the police after 10 days, who admitted that it was a false arrest. He had another health exam which showed that his liver was back to normal.
