Power of Dafa: My Life was Revived and Rejuvenated by Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a 55-year-old teacher and a Falun Dafa practitioner. I would like to share with others from all walks of life the dramatic transformation I experienced after I began practicing Falun Dafa—I went from hopelessness to feeling rejuvenated and energized.
I have read the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, several hundred times since starting the practice in 2006. The book is an essential part of my life.
I have recently been memorizing Zhuan Falun every day and have recited it a dozen times. Sometimes a paragraph from Zhuan Falun pops into my mind when I wake up.
A Hopeless Life
My ex-husband was a middle school principal. He had extra marital affairs with two female teachers in their 20's. We had numerous emotional arguments that left us agonized and exhausted. After a long and cold struggle, I moved out and had my parents live with me for two years. Later I filed for divorce.
In everyone's eyes, I was a strong and optimistic person who smiled all the time. However, only I knew that I was lonely and grieving in my heart. Life had become meaningless to me.
My health then deteriorated. My chronic insomnia developed into neurasthenia. Even after taking sleeping pills, I could only sleep for three hours per night. I was very sleepy at work the next day and yawning all the time.
I suffered arthritis in my legs as a complication of child birth. Pain in my knee predicted upcoming rainfall more accurately than the weather forecast. Medical examinations diagnosed me with low blood sugar, low blood pressure, and insufficient blood supply to the heart, as well as other chronic illnesses.
I tried countless medications, nutrient supplements, and folk medicine without any success. In addition to what my medical insurance paid out, I spent thousands of yuan out of pocket on various pills.
Rapid Change After Reading Zhuan Falun
I visited a former student in June 2006 and noticed a book on her desk. As I used to read novels to kill time, I picked it up out of curiosity. She smiled and asked, “Do you want to read Zhuan Falun?” I said to her, “I might as well start reading it now.”
That night, after reading a little, I went to sleep soon after going to bed and slept like a baby. No longer did I suffer from the chronic insomnia. When I returned the book after reading it through once, she said to me, “Look at your healthy complexion!” I thought she was just being nice, but after looking in the mirror, I noticed that I indeed looked healthy. I knew that I had changed after simply reading the book.” My mind felt sharp and clear, my eyes were clear, and I felt very energetic.
During the summer break that year, I took with me Zhuan Falun, The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection, and the exercise instruction video disc when I visited a relative. I read Zhuan Falun on the train. The more I read, the more I could let go of the anger in my heart. As I was totally absorbed in reading the book, the train and everything in my surroundings seemed far away, and I felt as though I had elevated in my cultivation level.
Through continued Fa study, I understood that all my tribulations and agonies were a direct result of my karma. My mind was opened up from then on, and I no longer was obsessed with strong emotions. I let go of the hate toward my ex-husband and even started to greet him politely when I ran into him.
Respectfully Reading Zhuan Falun
I read up to four chapters a day in Zhuan Falun when I first started cultivating. I just could not get enough of it. After I had read the entire book about four times, my stomach hurt as I lay in bed while reading the book.
A certain character in Zhuan Falun appeared to be circled by a golden light. I was so shocked at the scene that I immediately sat up. I knew at that moment that I should be respectful when reading Zhuan Falun, and that my stomachache was due to Master helping me eliminate the karma. My stomach has not hurt again since then.
As soon as I started learning the exercises, I felt energy throughout my body. I used to suffer from an aching arm, which was a complication of my cervical spondylosis. The first time I practiced the first exercise set, I felt something in my left arm suddenly rush upward when I did the move Two Dragons Diving into the Sea. I later realized that Master was clearing my energy channels.
When I visited my mother, she said, “What is happening to you? You are wearing just a tank top and don't feel cold at all.” Only then did I realize that I had recovered from some of my illnesses, and I no longer feared the cold. I said, “I have started practicing Falun Dafa.” All of my illnesses disappeared within the next month.
Following the Dafa Principles
I am now 55 years old, but people tell me that I look younger. My old middle school classmates took notice of my young appearance when we met at a reunion. I therefore took the opportunity give them Falun Dafa materials, and they all credited my positive changes to the practice.
I made an effort to conduct myself at work and in society by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Some of my students' parents offered me money or gifts, hoping that I would treat their children well. I thanked them, but did not accept anything, and reassured them that I would do everything I could to teach their children well.
An online salesperson once offered to instruct me how to fake a purchase in order to get a cash back bonus. I declined, and instead talked to her about Dafa. I told her that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner and our Master teaches us to be a truthful and good people. She said, “Thank you. I want to practice too.”
When my ex-husband's father passed away, I gave my son five hundred yuan to bring to his widowed grandmother as a gesture of good will. She cried and told my son that she missed me very much. I also frequently bought clothes and food forher, and sometimes visited her in person. One day last year when I was visiting her, she exclaimed, “My daughter is back home to see me.” She also praised Dafa, as she had witnessed the dramatic changes in me.
I would like to tell everyone who has been poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies and propaganda, “Falun Dafa does not forbid people from taking medicine. But as long as you believe in Master and follow Dafa's teachings you will enjoy a healthy body and medicine won't be necessary.”
