Master Li Has Taken Me on the Path to Heaven
(Minghui.org) I am eighty years old and was lucky enough to learn Falun Dafa in 1996. I was born in the countryside. I was an introvert and not good at speaking. By nature, I did not like gossip and never argued with anybody. When I was harmed or wronged, I would just cry behind others’ backs. Everybody said that I was a good person. I did not like to fight for things and I believed that one should be content with what one has.
When I was ten, I had roundworms. My stomach grew bigger and bigger by the day and I suffered excruciating pain. I had to roll on my bed from time to time to relieve the pain. I could not eat, and looked jaundiced and skinny. My parents were very worried and at their wit’s end.
At that time, my family had no medical knowledge. Normally kids could pass the worms naturally, but since I had not eaten for a long time, I had nothing to pass. As time went by, my condition worsened. Seeing my suffering and loss of weight, my parents could do nothing but cry.
One day, my grandma went out and walked on the street aimlessly. All of a sudden, a man dressed like a Taoist walked up to her and claimed that he could treat difficult illnesses. My grandma was very happy to hear that: her granddaughter had a chance to recover. So she brought the person to our house.
The man stared at me for a while as I was on death’s door. He looked familiar to me and I was happy to see him. He did not check my pulse or ask any questions. He took out a few tablets and gave them to my grandma. He told her how to administer the meds and left.
The next day, I passed many worms and had an appetite right away. After that, I got better. My parents realized that that man had saved my life, but he was nowhere to be found. They all thought that I was fortunate that a special person had come to save my life.
I realized after I learned Falun Dafa that Dafa practitioners have predestined relationships with Master Li (the founder) and are constantly protected and guarded by Master so they can learn Dafa. I am deeply grateful for Master’s salvation.
Book of Heaven
I had had poor health since I was a child. It got worse after I got married and had children. I had to do housework and did men’s jobs to make ends meet. My health deteriorated as a result. I felt hopeless, anticipating my old age, when I would become a burden to my children and there would be no way out.
My husband liked to do energy exercises when he was younger, so I thought that maybe I could learn them too, to have better health. However, as soon as I read his books which were filled with complicated instructions, I lost interest. I wished there was something that was simple and did not focus on breathing. Also, my husband had practiced a dozen different practices and his health had not improved. Sometimes he needed medication. To help me, my husband visited all the bookstores in the city for a book on a simple practice, but to no avail.
Then one of his coworkers told us that he saw a qigong called Falun Dafa in the park, and that it was simple to learn and effective. So he went looking for the practice site. A practitioner gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun. As soon as I got it, I started learning the movements, without reading the principles. After several days, I started to have flu-like symptoms: high fever, cough, and asthma. Even medications did not help, so I went to a clinic to receive intravenous treatment, but I got worse. Then it dawned on me that doing the exercises could treat diseases.
So I decided not to have the IV in the hospital and went home to do the exercises. In two days, my symptoms disappeared. I felt energetic. I experienced the extraordinary health benefits of the practice. I made up my mind that I would follow this practice.
Since I took up the practice, many accidents have happened. With Master’s protection, I have survived.
One afternoon in August 1997, I went to the market with my husband. We were walking on the street by the curb when a car hit us, throwing my husband a few meters away before he landed on the ground with his shoes meters away. Onlookers thought that he was going to die for sure.
He could not get up, as his heel was scraped by the car’s fender, and his left foot was broken. I was by his right side when it happened and I was hit by the side mirror on my left ear and received a cut of half a centimeter. The windshield had a big hole in it from the impact of my husband’s head. It was a car from the city’s public transportation company. The driver saw what happened and fled.
The passengers in the car were apparently the heads of the company. They tried to comfort us and asked how they could help. We both told them that we were Falun Dafa practitioners and that our Master taught us to be good and that we would not extort any money from them. The onlookers were all very impressed with Falun Dafa as they could see that we looked fine and they criticized the driver who had fled.
The company heads were apologetic. They tried to help my husband up, but he said, “No, I can do it myself.” They suggested that we go to the hospital to have a checkup. We put their minds at ease and insisted that we would be fine. They thanked us profusely. The onlookers all thought they had gotten off easy because we were so kind.
Then the leaders wanted to take us to their company to meet with their staff. I thought, “Why not? This would be a good opportunity to promote Falun Dafa.” They drove us to their office. Enduring the pain, my husband walked in. All the staff members were called out to meet with us. The bosses recounted what happened and praised us for our high morality and encouraged the staff to learn from us. One person said, “We have come across a living Buddha!” Some people even asked for a copy of Zhuan Falun. We encouraged everyone to learn the truth about Falun Dafa and be good people.
They drove us home and also wanted to get us some fruit or nutritional supplements, but we declined. Everyone was very impressed with us. “We really admire you. We have never seen anybody like you guys. We have seen people who would want unreasonable compensation even with very minor injuries. Falun Dafa is really good!”
How I Have Changed
After the persecution started in 1999, I experienced the worst pressure in my life. My husband and I were targeted as we coordinated work at an assistance center. We were questioned, threatened, followed, and harassed by the police, and our home was searched by armed police. The whole family was living in terror.
I continued to study the Fa and my righteous thoughts were strengthened. I said to myself that I had not done anything wrong and that what I was doing was the most righteous thing in the world. What was there to be afraid of? Those who persecuted Dafa and Dafa disciples were the ones who should be living in fear.
We decided that we would treat the police with kindness, so as not to provoke their evil sides. We believed in what Master talked about: compassionate energy would disintegrate the evil behind them so they would not do evil. Some of them were touched and told us how helpless they felt having to follow orders. We told them to remember that Falun Dafa is good and that everything else would be taken care of. I also helped two people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), namely the head of the local neighborhood watchdog agency and a police officer who visited me following my filing a criminal complaint against the former head of the CCP, Jiang Zemin.
In September 2005, the provincial 610 Office went on a rampage to round up Falun Dafa practitioners. A group of nine, including police officers and some others, came to our home. We let them in. While my husband clarified the truth to them, I sent righteous thoughts. He was a bit emotional, so I reminded him to be compassionate. He adjusted himself and had a much better effect. They listened to him for over twenty minutes. They wanted to take him away, but my husband resisted and challenged them on legal grounds. Because we resisted, they ultimately had to leave. This proved that if we have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, Master would protect his disciples.
I used to be very timid, but with Master’s strengthening and the power of Dafa, I have matured gradually. I was not able to hand out truth-clarification materials before. Now I can give people materials, produce materials, talk to people about the facts, help people quit the CCP, and set up Fa-study groups. Master bestowed this upon me. Master has paved the way for me and I just need to follow it. Thank you, Master, for your merciful salvation. I will study the Fa and improve myself to accomplish my mission until I consummate.
