14. ¡°What A Beautiful Electrocardiogram!¡±
¡¡¡¡Before I started practicing Falun Gong on October 6, 1994, I was seriously ill. I suffered from over a dozen illnesses, including coronary disease, cerebral hemorrhage, kidney stones, dizziness, and rheumatism. Two large drawers in my home and a cupboard at my office were filled with prescription drugs. I went to the hospital every day to take injections, as well as to receive acupuncture and electric therapy. I had exhausted all means of medical treatment but still had no relief from my suffering. After an operation to remove my uterine tumors in 1991, I spent nearly every day at the hospital. My health was deteriorating rapidly. I was shaky when walking. I was not even able to carry an object weighing five pounds, yet I still had to go to work on time every day and try to complete my household chores. At that time I felt life was filled with only suffering.
¡¡¡¡At the verge of utter collapse, I came across Falun Gong, which was spreading rapidly around the country. The magazines Qigong and Sports, and Qigong both reported on Falun Gong's effectiveness in keeping fit and improving people's health. The magazine Senior Citizens detailed the five exercises of Falun Gong for several consecutive issues. Finally holding the book Falun Gong, I was so excited that I did not want to put it down. I finished reading the whole book without having my lunch. Every word went deep into my heart, and I felt I had never seen such a good book before. I immediately cherished the three words, ¡°Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.¡±
¡¡¡¡Suddenly realizing I would be late
for my shift at work, I ran there.
Although I was barely able to catch
my breath from running so hard, I
was surprised by how much energy I
suddenly had. ¡°It's amazing!¡± After
that episode, I was determined to
practice Falun Gong. In less than
two weeks, I was able to read
without my eyeglasses. From this I
was encouraged once again. Other
than going to work and finishing my
housework, I spent a lot of my time
in studying the teachings and doing
the Falun Gong exercises. Later, I
obtained the book
Falun, which comprises the main teachings of Falun Gong. Then I understood completely that Falun Gong was about cultivation practice! ¡°I shall cultivate myself continually,¡± I thought to myself. My body felt so light, and so was my heart. Six months later, all the employees at my workplace were required to get a medical checkup. In my medical exam, not a single health problem was detected. Everything was normal. With the medical results in his hand, my doctor exclaimed, ¡°What a beautiful electrocardiogram!¡± When doing the sonogram, the doctor looked very closely for the kidney stones that had been detected before. ¡°They've really disappeared!¡± she said. I was so joyful. ¡°It is Falun Gong that has purified my body,¡± I said. In fact, I didn't know when the illnesses disappeared myself. I simply dove into cultivation practice without paying attention to my illnesses.
¡¡¡¡As of today, I have been practicing Falun Gong for seven years. I haven't had to take any medicine over that period of time. I look young again. From my experience, every friend of mine knows that Falun Gong is truly great. It saved my life and gave me everything that I have today.¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
