Master Saved Me and Taught Me to Treat Others Kindly
(Minghui.org) I came down with postpartum gas after giving birth to my child. The doctor said there was no cure for the disease and suggested that I stay at home. I was in pain all the time. I wanted to commit suicide sometimes because I could not bear the pain. I even had my will prepared.
I wore winter clothes, wore a hat, and used an electric blanket at night in the summer, but my limbs were cold. A big thick quilt didn’t help, either. I always felt cold. Cold air came out of my every joint. I was depressed and lost my temper all the time. I was intolerant and unkind.
In 1997, while I was very down mentally and physically, I happened to get a copy of Zhuan Falun in July that year. After I finished reading the book, I understood that the pain was caused by karma that I'd accumulated lifetime after lifetime and I should bear it and pay it back. I started to practice Falun Dafa and cared less for fame, personal interests, and sentimentality. I was rediscovering my true self.
My body underwent a fundamental change. When I practiced the first exercise, the joints in my body made small noises. I felt that a bad substance was being pushed out. Master was purifying my body and pushed my karma to the surface, which lasted more than two years. I no longer needed to wear warm clothes or a hat in the summer, nor did I need the electric blanket any more – just summer linens. I could even eat ice cream! I was able to play with my child outside in the winter. I was so grateful to compassionate Master.
My coughing stopped in September 2016. I had been coughing day and night. My husband and child pushed me to get checked out at the hospital, but I knew it was not sickness; Master was clearing my karma. I told them that Master was cleansing me and that I would be ok. I spat out three pieces of tumor in three consecutive days. I haven’t coughed since then. Master saved my life yet again!
My xinxing improved as well. I have held myself to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance since I started practicing Falun Dafa.
My father-in-law was a retired government official. He had some savings, but his savings of over 100,000 yuan disappeared one day. He knew who took it but was unable to do anything about it. He encouraged my husband and me to get it back for him. After some struggles in my mind, I decided to follow the Fa principles. I would not fight for it. I said to him, “I will look after you whether you have money or not. I will not fight for it though we would have a share of it. Our Master taught us the principle of loss and gain.”
He has been bedridden since then. None of his relatives came to see him; I was the only one looking after him. He passed away peacefully a year later. There were fights among his brothers after his death. I still followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, but sometimes I felt like it was unfair, and I had complaints as well as resentment and jealousy.
“But that is not going to happen without giving up jealousy. It may be possible that one falls short in some other minor regards and goes to the paradise with karma for further cultivation. But it is absolutely impossible if jealousy is not abandoned.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)
Master’s Fa awakened me. I tried to let go of my combative heart and jealousy, though it was pretty hard to do. Once I did, I improved rapidly.
The stone factory in my village blasts the mountain. The blasts caused our house to crack in several places. The front and rear windows were shattered. The elderly people in my village encouraged me to get compensation from the factory or file a lawsuit against them if they didn’t agree to compensate me. As a Falun Dafa practitioner, I should abide by Dafa’s principles and be kind to other people. I didn’t ask for compensation. The factory didn’t give me anything, either, but I didn’t feel I'd had lost anything. Instead, I felt that I had gained a lot.
I haven’t lost my temper since I started to practice Falun Dafa. My depression has vanished and I feel happy and have become tolerant and humble. I treat my family members well and my family has become harmonious.
