(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa 20 years ago. Unfortunately, I left Dafa three times, totaling nine years, due to my fear of being persecuted. I was arrested and detained for two weeks in 2009 and taken to a brainwashing center in 2010.
However, compassionate Master Li has never given up on me and has helped me time and time again to purify my body and restore my health.
One night in March 2015, my heart suddenly felt awful. My husband called an ambulance right away and they took me to the hospital.
After the doctors checked me over, they found that my heart was weak. My blood sugar, blood lipids, and blood pressure were all very high. I was admitted to the Progressive Care Unit immediately. It was the first time I thought of death.
My condition hadn't improved after three days of treatment. I went home and just took medicines. Although I took the pills every day, my blood pressure still remained very high. My husband had to bring me my meals in bed.
My family wanted to take me to the provincial hospital, but I knew that the only way I could get better was to practice Falun Dafa. I then decided to give up any treatment and resume cultivating Dafa.
Because I had been persecuted before, I was fearful of being arrested again. And I knew that I couldn't pass the test without the help of other practitioners. I needed to find other practitioners.
I finally found Ms. Ping, who works at the same company as my husband. She suggested that we study the Fa immediately. We completed one lecture of Zhuan Falun, and I walked home unaided and had a good sleep. I hadn't felt like that for several months. I sincerely thank Master for helping me to return to cultivation so quickly.
Ms. Ping came to my home and studied the Fa with me after that. I also increased the number of times I sent forth righteous thoughts. No matter how awful I felt, I kept getting up early in the morning to do the exercises and remind myself to do things in my daily life according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
As I gradually regained my health, my husband's attitude towards Dafa changed.
I also realized the importance of studying the Fa more. I began to copy Zhuan Falun by hand and completed it in two and a half months.
At the beginning of this year, I started to study Master's lectures from different regions. My understandings on the Fa improved a lot, and I discovered why I left Dafa before and wasn't able to be steadfast.
I completely recovered, and I am able to do more housework. In March of this year, even though I am already 56 years old, I started to menstruate again.
I retired before my company went bankrupt at the beginning of this year. My child has been accepted by a well-known university as a postgraduate student. I also easily sold one of my flats, which isn't in a popular location, at a reasonable price.
Ms. Ping's computer skills were not as good as mine, so I taught her how to download articles and audios from Minghui.org. She now helps many other practitioners to download materials, helping our local practitioners to improve together.
I started sending my experience sharing articles for World Falun Dafa Day last year. I realized that the process of writing an experience sharing article is also a process of finding my shortcomings and then improving further.
I still have lots of attachments that I need to overcome. I am afraid of talking to people face-to-face about Falun Dafa, and I didn't dare to use my real name to file a criminal complaint against the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party Jiang Zemin, who launched the persecution of Falun Dafa. I know I need to catch up and save more people at this crucial time.
