My Husband, Now 85, Finally Begins to Practice Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Master Li Hongzhi,(the founder of Falun Dafa) said,
“So I think that by being able to sit here, and hear my teaching in person, you are really… you will grasp the significance of it later on, and realize how fortunate you were. We subscribe to the idea of destiny, and I would say it is your destiny to be here.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Whenever I come across the above paragraph of the Fa, it reminds me of how fortunate I was to have attended many of Master's nine-day lectures when He was spreading the Fa in China. My husband also had a good predestination with Dafa.
My husband worked as a photographer for a news agency. His company wanted to make a special documentary about Master Li when He was in Beijing to teach Falun Dafa.
My husband traveled with Master to Jietai Temple and took pictures of Him doing the exercises, which were to be used for instructional purposes. He also took photos of Master correcting practitioners’ exercise movements at the Ditan exercise site, and Master lecturing at the Police Auditorium.
Every time he came home, he would say, “This qigong master is very remarkable! He is quite amazing when it comes to healing illnesses. He treats people nicely and always has a smile on his face.”
I was in poor health at that time, and taking Western or Chinese medicine did not help. Persuaded by my husband, I attended Master's lectures. All of my illnesses soon disappeared. I have not taken any medication for the past 25 years. I am 84 years old now and am doing very well.
Although my husband had a good predestined relationship with Master, he did not pick up the practice, as he was deeply poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) indoctrination.
When he witnessed the positive changes I went through, he became supportive of the practice and allowed me to go to different places to attend Master's lectures. At that time, my house was also used for group Fa-study every day in the late afternoon.
After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, my husband became indifferent to Falun Dafa and even handed in my Dafa books to his workplace. He was afraid of being persecuted as he had been subjected to many political movements in the past, especially during the cultural revolution when he was taken to the countryside for “re-education.”
He developed many illnesses later on in life, such as myocardial infarction and experienced organ failure. He was also injured in a car accident and fell from very high places multiple times. Yet, Master didn't give up on him and he always recovered. He even said, “I can feel Master is protecting me, otherwise I wouldn't be here today.”
He was hospitalized in February 2019. The doctor said that all his internal organs were failing and discharged him since they could no longer treat him.
I remained calm the entire time and had only one thought, “Because of his great predestined relationship with Master, Master will take care of him.”
At home, a fellow practitioner visited one day and gave me a podcast entitled “In Memory of Master's Saving Grace.” After my husband finished listening to it, he suddenly said that he wanted to watch Master's Fa-lecture videos and learn the exercises.
He encountered interference in the beginning. While watching Master’s lecture video, he was also taking photos of the scenery outside the window. After he finished taking the pictures, he shared them with his social group.
Later that evening when he went to check if his friends had received the pictures, he said, “None of those pictures got sent!” Only then, did he realize the sacredness and seriousness of practicing Dafa. Master was hinting to him using this opportunity.
The next day, he said, “From now on, I will stop taking any medication, and put away my blood pressure monitor. I'll study the Fa and do the exercises diligently. I have Master taking care of me.”
It has been over three months now since he began practicing Dafa. He watches Master's Fa-lecture videos every day while sitting in the lotus position. Regardless of how much pain he experiences, he does not put down his legs.
At 85 years old, he is going through a positive physical and spiritual transformation, and his health is improving every day.
