Blessed by Dafa
(Minghui.org) Getting injections and taking medications was “business as usual” for me, because I was very sickly from the time I was a child. In 1996, people told me that Falun Dafa did wonders for a person’s health and fitness and that practicing it would bring blessings. They suggested that I would do well to take up the practice.
I was very eager to be healthy, so I bought the Dafa books, including Zhuan Falun, and learned the five exercises at a practice site. From reading the books, I learned that Falun Dafa is a cultivation practice of mind and body. One doesn’t simply do the exercises. One also needs to conduct oneself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, improve one's moral level, and be a good person.
My Family Became Harmonious
My husband worked in sales and often had to travel on business. When customers came to visit, he went out with them to dinner and for drinks. Because he often came home drunk in the middle of the night, I often quarreled with him.
After practicing Falun Dafa, I knew I needed to change my behavior. Master taught us to be considerate of others when encountering situations like this with my husband. I knew that doing sales was not easy for my husband. It’s inevitable in today’s society to have to do business with customers over dinner, which became part of his job. Thinking about this from his point of view, I could understand him and wasn’t angry anymore.
After I began to practice Falun Dafa, my husband’s sales improved. He could sell products that were previously not easy to sell and was quickly promoted from salesperson to department manager. As is typically seen in Falun Dafa, I practiced and he also benefited.
My husband said, “Your health has improved since you have practiced Falun Dafa, and we do not quarrel any more.”
I told him that I lived by Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, that I could put others first, and that I was more broadminded. My husband could sense how wonderful Dafa is. He always supported me in my cultivation and did so even after Jiang Zemin, a former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), launched the persecution of Falun Dafa.
I Was Admitted to Civil Service
The benefits at the factory where I worked were not good. At that time, I saw that the government was hiring civil servants, so I decided to apply. Civil servants have a steady job and make good money. After reading the prospectus, I saw that the requirements were high. Most of the positions required a college degree in liberal arts. Only one department was looking for engineering applicants.
I graduated from an engineering college, so I met the initial requirement. More than a hundred people applied for this position, but only two would be hired. First we had to take a written test, from which only the top six would be selected for an interview. From the time I registered, I only had two months to study for the exam. I read more than a dozen books, most about secretarial duties. It was impossible to remember everything. So I thought: “Let it be, let it be.”
On the written test, I was surprised to find that the questions were similar to what had been covered in the books that I’d read and that I remembered a great deal. I did well on the written test and was selected for the interview. The interview questions were what I had reviewed. I started working in civil service in 1997.
My college classmates were very surprised that I was working in the civil service as an engineering college graduate, because the exam was all about secretarial duties. The competition was fierce, but I passed the exam. I said that I have experienced such blessings since I have practiced Falun Dafa.
We Have a Healthy Baby
When my husband and I were not yet ready to have a baby, I unexpectedly became pregnant. Because my husband often smoked and drank when dining with customers, he was worried about the adverse effects on the child and wanted me to end the pregnancy. I am a cultivator and cannot kill. I persuaded my husband to keep the baby and told him that the child would be healthy because I cultivate.
Up until the baby was born, I continued to study the Fa and do the exercises every day. Some relatives and friends were worried that the exercises could affect the baby. I told them that the exercises were good for the and definitely not harmful.
Our son was born healthy and beautiful and combined the good points of both me and my husband. He was very healthy and rarely had a cold or fever. From birth to primary school, he only once had a low-grade fever due to teething, which the doctor said was fine.
Our son’s physical indicators were always good. Some parents asked me what I fed him that he was so healthy. I told them that he was a very picky eater and never liked anything nutritious. When my child was in kindergarten, the teacher always said to me, “Your child is the pickiest one, but he never gets sick. Not like other kids, who even bring medicine with them.
My Child’s Health Validated that “Falun Dafa Is Good”
I taught my son to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and to strive to be sincere, kind, and tolerant. He was very obedient and tried to do what I asked. When I studied the teachings, I often read Zhuan Falun to him. After he went to elementary school, we studied Zhuan Falun together. Dafa gave my child a healthy body and good morals. Thank you, Master! Thank you, Dafa!
In 2010, I was illegally arrested when I was out clarifying the truth, and then sentenced to prison. My arrest put my son under a lot of psychological pressure. After a period of adjustment, he got through this difficult period.
While I was detained, my husband came to visit me and said he was worried about whether our son would be admitted to college in the future. I told him that, although I couldn’t be with our son, he would definitely go to college and everything would go according to our goals. Sure enough, my son was admitted to a high school that we were hoping he would attend. After he was admitted to college, he also did well there. In college, even his teacher said that he did not expect our son to perform as well as he did on the college entrance exam. I knew these were blessings from Dafa.
My Husband Said: “Falun Dafa Is Good!”
After the CCP began to persecute Falun Dafa, my husband always supported my cultivation, and he was grateful that Dafa also brought him blessings.
Once our son wanted to write something but didn’t know what to write. My husband said, “Just write, 'Falun Dafa is good.'” At a college reunion, my husband made a toast, saying, “Falun Dafa is good!” All of his classmates replied in unison, “Falun Dafa is good!”
When a practitioner was persecuted, her husband said something that was disrespectful to Dafa. My husband immediately said that Falun Dafa is good, and he advised the other practitioner's husband to treat practitioners and Dafa well.
When I was illegally sentenced to prison, it put great pressure on my husband. However, he still believed that Dafa is good and he was very strong, although sometimes he secretly wept. After I returned home, I was fired from my job. My husband continued to support me in my cultivation.
During the 23 years of cultivation, whether it was a peaceful time or during the days of mad persecution by the Jiang Zemin regime and the CCP, I always lived by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, considered others first in everything, and became a better person. My moral realm has been constantly improving. I have a healthy body and a peaceful and broader mind.
