Cultivating Solidly: Family Members Accept Dafa
(Minghui.org) My parents had not been able to work in the field for six months, as my father had severe back pain and lost feeling in his legs. A lump had grown on my mothers neck, that was six inches long and one inch wide. Her entire body felt cold even during the hot summer months. My sister and brother asked me to look after them.
I was already practicing Falun Dafa, so I asked my parents to recite the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good!”
My father recited the words for three days and his feet became swollen. He cried and asked, “Why am I getting worse?”
I told him what it said in Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, and said, “Keep saying the words!”
He kept reciting the phrases for three more days. The swelling then disappeared, and he was able to walk again. He had recovered from his illnesses in six days by reciting the auspicious phrases.
My mother, on the other hand, did not show any change. I knew that she was not sincere when reciting the words. I asked her to bare with me for three days.
“You can read this book to a patient. If the patient can accept it, it can heal illness. But the results will differ according to each person’s amount of karma.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)
I read Zhuan Falun to my parents during those thee days. This time my mother really understood the truth about Dafa and recovered from her illnesses.
Auntie Changed Her View of Dafa
My auntie was 75 years old, and suffered from a number of illnesses. She came to visit us one time and asked if I could go and look after her. She offered me a bed and meals, plus a salary of 2,000 yuan per month.
I didn't choose to stay overnight, but went to her home after breakfast. She decided that she would pay me 1,500 yuan instead. I accepted, and said that I would take care of her whether she paid me or not, given that I was a practitioner.
I cleaned the whole house, washed the dishes, mopped the floor, and cleaned the kitchen. She asked me to take a break in the afternoon, but I kept cleaning. It took me three days to thoroughly clean her home. She was very happy, and said that it hadn't been so clean for such a long time.
She told me about her illnesses, and that she had backache, stomachache, heart problems, and shortness of breath.
I read Master's poems in Hong Yin V to her. After I finishing she said that she could breath easily again. I read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to her the next day, and after telling her about the movement to quit the CCP, she said happily, “I joined the Young Pioneers. Please quit for me”
Working in my auntie's house was a truly good opportunity for me to cultivate my xinxing, as she had a bad temper when I started working there and would often blame me for things. But I did not become upset at all.
My auntie asked me to go shopping with her before the Chinese New Year. On the way home, I used one arm to carry the shopping bag, slung over my shoulder, while supporting her with my other arm.
One day her daughter came in and saw me remaining calm while being shouted at. She said, “You have such a good temper, not getting angry regardless of what others say.”
“She never gets upset no matter how I treat her,” my auntie commented.
When they asked me how I could be so tolerant, I said, “I'm a cultivator. Doing good deeds is what I should do.”
After seeing how I had been treating her, my auntie completely changed her attitude towards Dafa and was very supportive.
I have been persistent with my cultivation over the years, and been strict with myself in following the Dafa standards. Many people have started practicing Dafa after observing my behavior.
