(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2010, along with my daughter. After going overseas in 2015 to attend college, she slacked off a bit, but in her mind she still knew that Dafa was good. After graduating from college in April 2021, she did not return to China due to the pandemic but instead found a job in that foreign country. Her boyfriend Jian is not a practitioner and he also works in the same city.
On March 6 this year, Jian started to run a fever and had a sore throat. He ached all over and was very tired. Lying in bed, he was very weak. He did not tell his parents, though, afraid they might be too worried. My daughter told me this and was not sure what to do.
Having been a practitioner for over a decade, I have experienced and witnessed many miracles like many other practitioners. Even those who don’t practice Falun Dafa but support innocent practitioners and reject the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have received blessings. Due to the censorship in China, I knew it was unlikely I could explain all this over the phone, but I thought I should try.
So I said to my daughter, “Have you talked with Jian about quitting the CCP organizations?”
“You know many people have benefited from reciting the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Why not try that, too? It would be good for him,” I added.
“No, he did not believe it,” my daughter replied. “You know, he is a little stubborn and is not easily convinced. But I did ask him to read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party last night.” Published in 2004, Nine Commentaries is a book that systematically exposes how the CCP harmed people with brutality and lies during the past few decades.
Hearing this, I knew that Jian had been deeply misled by the CCP’s propaganda like many Chinese. Instead of relying on my daughter, maybe I should talk to Jian about this as well, I thought.
After my daughter gave the phone to Jian, I asked how he felt.
“The fever is gone,” he replied, adding that he had spent a few hours reading the book Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party the night before.
I said that there were many things in our lives that modern science cannot explain, but people have witnessed in history all along. One example is the saying that “good is rewarded with good, and evil meets with evil.” In fact, whenever one person is sincerely willing to be a good person and stay away from the vicious, the divine will protect him or her.
I told him about my daughter’s miraculous experience with Dafa. She was often sick when she was young, but her health improved rapidly after she began to practice Falun Dafa. Since the CCP has done so many bad deeds and harmed innocent people during the past several decades, it is important to sever ties with the regime to avoid sinking with it.
“After hearing you were sick, my daughter was so worried that she cried,” I continued. “You know, we all want you to be healthy and happy. If you follow my advice, you will not lose anything. Right?”
Jian did not say much during the conversation, probably because he was weak. But I could tell he was listening, and from time to time, he said “yes” and agreed with what I said.
Shortly after the phone call ended, my daughter told me that Jian said it was fine for him to quit the CCP’s junior organization, the Young Pioneers, that he'd joined years ago. I was very happy for him.
At about 7 p.m. on the third day, my daughter told me that after talking with me that day, Jian fell asleep. Upon waking up, he felt all his discomfort except the sore throat was gone, and he felt energetic.
My Daughter’s Story
On the day Jian recovered, however, my daughter began to exhibit the same symptoms he had. I didn’t panic. Having practiced Falun Dafa for over ten years, I knew things would be fine.
My daughter also considered herself a practitioner and did not worry much.
“You know what to do,” I said to her. “And I will send forth righteous thoughts for you.”
She said yes.
Jian felt very bad. “Sorry it was my fault passing it on to you,” he said.
“No worries,” my daughter replied. “You know I am a practitioner and I will be fine soon.”
After finishing her work and eating some soup, my daughter went back to her own place. She kept reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and went to sleep after a while.
Five hours later, she woke up with renewed energy in spite of a slightly sore throat. From getting infected to full recovery took her two and a half days.
Jian had planned to take some time off to take care of her. He was very surprised to see her fully recovered.
“Please, tell me what happened. What is your secret to getting well so soon?” he asked. “Is Falun Dafa indeed so extraordinary?”
“Yes, it is,” she said with a big smile. “But I have not practiced much yet. When we visit my mother someday, she will let you know more about the practice. By then, you will know Falun Dafa is the best.”
