(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in June 1995. Back then, I had severe heart disease. My heart beat more than 200 times per minute. The doctor told me that I could be in danger of losing my life at any time. I also had a lower back injury, and I couldn’t stand straight due to the pain. In addition, I suffered from a frozen shoulder, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and other health problems. 

Stepping onto the Cultivation Path

My mother told me that a type of qigong had been recently introduced and many people were practicing it. She asked me to check it out. 

I went to the park and found the practice site. When I told the people there that I was very ill, they said that there were a lot of people sicker than me, but they recovered soon after starting to practice this qigong. Hearing that, I asked them to teach me right away. I learned the standing exercises and went home. After that, I was in good spirits and didn’t seem to need a nap at lunchtime. This had not happened before. 

I was in my 30s, and my daughter was in primary school. My husband was a salesperson and often away on business trips, so I had to pick her up and drop her off from school. Since I didn’t have time to go to the park to do the exercises on weekdays, I went during the weekends. I wanted to quickly learn the exercises. Then, I started doing the exercises every night. I recovered from all my illnesses in a month. I felt very light when I walked, whereas before, my legs seemed so heavy. 

Then, a practitioner from the practice site told me that I needed to study the Fa. So I bought a copy of Zhuan Falun, read it, and did the exercises at night. Through Fa-study, I came to realize that Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) was not really about doing the exercises, but, more importantly, it taught people to be a good person. Practitioners are advised to follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and to be considerate and kind to others. 

In September, my company required all employees to have a medical check-up. All my test results came out normal. Now, more than 20 years have passed. I’m 63 years old and am still in good health.

I felt so fortunate for being where I am because of practicing Dafa. When my colleagues noticed that I was so healthy, one asked me, “How much have you saved in medical expenses? For example, the heart disease you had before – if you were to be hospitalized, you’d end up spending lots of money, but the hospital still couldn’t save you. See how lucky you are.”

“True,” I said, “I have not only saved a great deal on medical expenses for the country, more importantly, I no longer suffer. I have not only become healthy, but I also look younger than people my age. For example, last August, I went to a supermarket where the security guard asked to scan my health code. I told him I was too old to use WeChat, and I couldn’t scan the code without it. Hearing that, he gave me a very angry look and said, ‘If you don’t want to scan, that’s okay, but don’t say you are old!’” 

After I started cultivating, I followed Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and treated my family kindly. My mother-in-law was picky and greedy. She didn’t like this or that person, and she often swore at others. I didn’t take that to heart and often bought things that my in-laws liked. In the winter, I bought them winter cabbage. My husband said, “My mother often told people in the courtyard: Look at how nice these vegetables that my daughter-in-law bought for me are!” Last year, my father-in-law injured his leg and ended up in the hospital. I prepared meals and took them to him. Before he was about to be discharged, I helped him find a ride home. Because of that, my mother-in-law kept praising me to her son. 

When my daughter was young, she was constantly sick. After I began Dafa cultivation, she was no longer ill. I often talked to her about being a good person by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and by often reciting “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” I told her that she would be healthy, smart, and do well at school. She behaved as I told her and often did household chores. For example, she tidied up her room, washed her socks, took out the garbage, and did some grocery shopping. My neighbors often commented on how well-mannered and polite she was. 

At school, my daughter was also very self-disciplined. Her teachers liked her and chose her to be a mentor, and often had her represent the school in English speaking competitions. She always won first place. In her second year of high school, she was the only student in her school who passed the British Public English Level 4 exam (equivalent to graduate entry-level). After she graduated from high school, she was admitted to her desired university abroad. 

My Aunt Experiences a New Life 

My aunt came to my mother’s home with an illness in May 1996. She said she had a stomachache, and because she often felt as if her belly was bloated, she couldn’t eat. She said she had gone through a gastroscopy in the city where she lived. The doctor told her that her illnesses were hard to cure. She’d seen an advertisement on TV, which said that a doctor from my mother’s township could treat her illnesses, so she came. When my mother saw her, my aunt was emaciated. She had no energy to talk, she was in low spirits and could only take in a little bit of liquid food at each meal. When my mother asked her if she felt hungry, she said that every time she drank so much as a spoonful, her stomach became uncomfortably bloated. Therefore, she couldn’t eat. 

My mother asked me to quickly take her to the hospital. So we went the next day. After my aunt underwent a gastroscopy, the doctor called me over and told me that she had advanced gastric cancer with tumors growing in her stomach. That’s why she couldn’t eat. The doctor didn’t suggest surgery out of concern that she was too weak to withstand an operation. He also said that she had only one to two months to live. After the doctor prescribed some pain pills, my aunt went back to my mother’s home. 

When I was hospitalized due to my heart disease, my aunt visited me in the hospital. After we came home, I asked her how she thought about me now. She said, “You were in very low spirits and lacked strength last year when you were in the hospital. Now you look very energetic and full of strength, like a different person.” I told her, “I practice Falun Gong now. I’ve become healthy.” Then, I asked her to also practice it. She agreed right away. 

The next day, I went to the practice site to buy Zhuan Falun for her, and found her a practice site near her home. She’d only graduated from primary school and was almost illiterate. But, she was very diligent and wrote down whatever words she didn’t know on a slip of paper. Then she brought the paper with her to show my mother or her husband. After a week, I went to see my mother. As soon as I came in, my aunt came from her room smiling. “What to do? I can eat raw, cold, anything. I always feel like eating something.” I said, “Awesome! Please let me know what you want to eat, and I’ll go get it for you.” Right then, my mother also appeared. I asked her, “How come my aunt can eat so quickly?” My mother said, “She has been reading Zhuan Falun. Whenever she came across words that she didn’t know, she’d ask someone. Five days after she started reading, she went to the toilet 13 times. She said she discharged many filthy substances. Since then, she can eat everything.”

My aunt turned 89 this year. She has continued to be in good health. Although my uncle didn’t practice Falun Dafa, he got to see the beauty of Dafa through his wife and believed that Dafa is good. In 2007, I talked to him about the persecution launched by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He acknowledged that. Then, I asked him to renounce his CCP memberships, so that whatever evil deeds the CCP had committed would have nothing to do with him. He said right away, “Sure, please help me quit.” 

As my uncle had a lot of authority in his family, I told him to tell his family members to quit the CCP as well, to ensure their safety so that they could escape calamity when Heaven eliminates the CCP. I also told him that they’d be blessed as well. A few days after he returned home, my uncle called me to give me a list of his family members – over a dozen of them – who’d agreed to quit the CCP organizations. 

Now, my uncle and aunt have caring children and grandchildren, They are in good health and live a harmonious life. I told them that they were blessed by Dafa and received good fortune for having quit the CCP. They also agreed. 

My Old Classmate Benefits from Dafa

I went to see my mother on January 26, 2020, and happened to run into one of my high school classmates who’d come to visit my mother. We hadn’t seen each other for more than 40 years. When I told her that I remembered her name, she was impressed that I recalled it. At that time, she had a dark complexion and was very thin. After we sat down, she told me she couldn’t eat anything, because she had diabetes.

I clarified the facts about Dafa to her. She acknowledged Dafa, saying that since I was clearly doing so well, she could judge that Dafa was not like the CCP had publicized it in the media and on the internet. I said, “Good. Since you are so clear on that, let me tell you that by meeting two conditions, you’ll be safe and healthy.

She asked me, “Tell me, what are they?” I said, “The first condition is to sincerely recite the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!’ and recite them whenever you have time. The more you recite these, the better. It doesn’t matter whether you say them quietly or out loud. But, if you want to do it out loud, that’s even better. Fundamentally, you need to recite the words sincerely and do it in a clean place, as this is a Buddha-law truth.” 

My friend said, “Why wouldn’t I recite those words sincerely?” I said, “Great. Then the second condition is this: since all its political movements over the past years, the CCP has persecuted so many innocent people and committed so many bad deeds, Heaven will eliminate the CCP. Whoever chooses not to renounce their memberships in the CCP and its youth organizations will be eliminated in the upcoming calamities. For example, the current pandemic is one such calamity.” She said she had joined the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers before and asked me to help her quit them right away. 

Due to the lockdown, I couldn’t get in touch with her for awhile. On February 13, 2021, I went to see her. Her skin was clear, and she’d gained weight. I told her that she had really changed. She responded that she kept reciting the phrases whenever she had time, and it didn’t take long for her to feel relaxed and recover from her illnesses. 

Now she takes care of her two grandchildren. She also took on a part-time job. I told her that she was really blessed, for she was in good health and better off financially. She said cheerfully, “True!”
