Falun Dafa Blesses My Family
(Minghui.org) Many miraculous things have happened in my life since 2006! That was when I began Falun Dafa cultivation practice. If you have never encountered Falun Dafa, you might not be able to imagine the extraordinary benefits that can occur from practicing. I would like to share how my family has benefited.
Healed of Kidney Disease
Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had severe kidney disease, as well as arthritis, cervical spondylosis, and back pain. Basically, I had pain from head to toe and was always uncomfortable. My younger sister developed kidney disease earlier than me. It is a genetic disease with no cure. We were unable to do much, and just lay in bed most of the time. My parents were devastated after they learned that both their daughters had this severe disease. Normally, those who have this disease doesn't live for very long. No one dares to think about the future.
My sister and I each had a teenaged child. We could hardly get out of bed and were unable to help out with household chores. At that time, I was really desperate. I wanted to cure the disease as soon as possible. I felt that my sickness greatly affected my parents’ health. I feared that my family would be destroyed. I tried all available treatments, but nothing helped.
When I was depressed and desperate, one of my colleagues who was a Falun Dafa practitioner sent me the precious book Zhuan Falun. I was curious as I started to read, but I also was afraid of being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I was carefully looking for ways to cure my illness throughout the book. Gradually, under the guidance of the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi, I got to know that this book is about high level spiritual practice and self-cultivation. In the book Master says:
“I’m not going to talk about doing healing here. We don’t do healing. But if you want to do true cultivation, and you’ve come here with an ailing body, then you can’t cultivate yet. So I have to purify your body. I only purify the body for people who’ve truly come here to learn the practice, who truly come to learn the Law. ” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
After reading this passage, I understand that Master Li only purifies the bodies of cultivators. So I became a cultivator and followed the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. How wonderful it was to have a book that taught one to be a good person and have no disease! The CCP propaganda was indeed not true! What could ever could be wrong with seeking to be a good person?!
I am so grateful to Master! Master noticed that I was serious about cultivating and wanting to be a good person who was kind to others. After reading the book for a short time, I got up out of bed after being bedridden for months, cleaned myself up, and walked out to my workplace!
Later, my relatives who witnessed my miraculous changes also started Falun Dafa cultivation. They all became healthy and happy. My parents were able to smile once again.
How I Changed after Falun Dafa Cultivation
My husband and I were in love during the first few years of our marriage, but after I gave birth to our daughter, he didn’t have a sense of duty and left everything, big or small, on my shoulders. I am a self-confident and tough person. Under the indoctrination of the CCP’s atheism, I believed that as long as I worked hard, I would surely have a good life and family.
With so much housework and childcare, I broke down when our daughter was three years old. All my spare time and a lot of money were spent on my hospital stays. Physically and mentally exhausted, I complained about everything every day. In addition, our overall social trends were not healthy. My husband’s company was very bad. His co-workers didn’t hurry to get home after work but got together to eat and drink. He had a bad temper so I criticized him for that. He argued back. We were consistently quarreling and fighting. Our daughter would become scared and start to cry. Then we separated and I planned to get a divorce after our daughter went off to college.
When I felt upset and desperate, I'd look at the sky and wonder helplessly about the meaning of life. Was it to suffer? Does God really exist? I struggled so hard, hanging on just for the sake of my child and my parents.
After practicing Falun Dafa, I realized that everything that had happened in my life was retribution for karma. Everything improved as I continued in cultivation. I live my life according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, consider others first, and treat all people kindly. The quarrels with my husband became quieter and less frequent, and gradually the house became quieter. Slowly, my husband noticed the tremendous changes happening to me. My health improved; my temper improved; I smiled more, and complained less. Slowly he came to understand Dafa and started studying Zhuan Falun. He is also working hard to change himself. Recently, I found out that his insomnia and mania were gone, which greatly enhanced his confidence to keep practicing. His changes are beyond what I ever would have imagined; only Dafa and Master Li could provide such benefits for my husband!
My daughter also noticed my changes. I no longer punished her physically or yelled at her. She knows that Falun Dafa is good. When I suggested she learn Dafa as well, she agreed immediately! Before practicing Falun Dafa, her grades were average. Dafa opened up her mind and she got better and better grades. She also became a well-behaved child. She determines what is right or wrong by using the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. Our relationship improved and we are happier than ever. In comparison, I felt how hard it was to follow the CCP's atheistic approach to educating children, and how amazing Dafa is! My daughter is now a graduate student at a great university abroad, and is firmly cultivating under the care of Master Li. Under the shining light of Dafa, our family of three are happy and healthy. Thanks to Master once again!
Other Family Members Blessed by Falun Dafa
My mother-in-law lived in another province. I went there to visit, as my sister-in-law had advanced cancer at that time. After I introduced Falun Dafa to her, she happily agreed to practice and soon recovered from cancer. However, my mother-in-law didn’t allow her to continue cultivation practice because she feared the CCP's persecution of Dafa practitioners. Without any choice, my sister-in-law stopped studying Falun Dafa. However she believed in Dafa and did quit the CCP and its youth organizations. It’s been more than ten years since she was diagnosed with cancer. She is still alive. Although she didn’t continue her cultivation, Master still gave her blessings!
Over the years, I have kept on clarifying the truth to my mother-in-law. She fell once and was confined to bed for more than a year. I advised her to recite the phrases, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good.” Later, she called me and said that she could walk again and cook. Gradually, she accepted Dafa. Occasionally, she would read Zhuan Falun and listen to Master’s lectures. Our relationship is getting better and better. We used to go our own way and now we are a family.
My relatives live in other provinces that are far away. Due to the long distance, we rarely meet. However, several years ago, some of my relatives happened to come to our area for business so they stopped by. They came multiple times in two years so I took the opportunity to tell them the truth about Falun Dafa. They were afraid of the CCP at the beginning, but gradually they understood about the persecution, and how profound Falun Dafa is. After quitting the CCP, my relatives’ business is getting better and better. Master made wonderful arrangements for my family!
My husband’s relatives also visited frequently. So I told them about Falun Dafa and helped them quit the CCP. They each have received wonderful blessings in their lives. Thank you Master Li Hongzhi!
