Falun Dafa's Magnificence Revealed to the World
(Clearwisdom.net) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. In the past ten years, under Master's care and assistance from fellow practitioners, I have walked firmly on the path to the divine. Although sometimes I stumble, I feel that Master is always with me. As I firmly practice cultivation, I have seen Falun Dafa revealing much of its magnificence to the world. Let me use this opportunity to share with practitioners.
I. Begin Practicing Falun Dafa; Persistent Disease Disappears
In 1998, a cold left me with a sequela of myocarditis. My heart rate was far from normal and I could do nothing but stay at the hospital. At the hospital my heart rate once rose to 160 beats per minute. I almost died. After that, I felt very stuffy in my chest. I took many drugs and received shots but my condition did not improve. I saw specialists and went to major hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai, but none of it helped. The feeling of "I am about to die" was always with me. Doctors could not save my life.
It was almost the Chinese New Year and I decided to give up on treatment. I would die, but I told myself that if I could have New Year's dumplings, it would be okay. It took great effort to eat three dumplings because my chest felt stuffy whenever I sat for more than 30 minutes. Just when I felt I was about to die, a cousin arrived and brought me a book called Zhuan Falun. I began to read it and it was like I caught a life buoy. Right from the first page, Falun Dafa's principles deeply attracted me. I had never heard these things before. I kept reading and became more and more relaxed as I read. When I turned around and saw the clock, a whole morning had passed. I was shocked--how could I have sat for a whole morning and not felt tired? In the afternoon, I got out of bed and washed the bed sheet that my mother-in-law had soaked for a long time. When my mother-in-law saw me, she screamed at me and told me to go back to bed immediately. She thought that I planned to not live anymore. I told her that I did not feel sick, but she would not believe me.
Since that time, all my symptoms have disappeared. Every day I eagerly read Zhuan Falun. I felt like a kid covered in mud being washed clean again and again. I felt that every cell in me was washed completely. Falun Dafa gave me a second life. Since then, I've been on my path of practicing Falun Dafa. Every day I would ride my bike to the park to do the exercises.
I still remember that when I asked to work again, team leaders told me to go back home. They thought that there was no way that I would recover. However, they were stunned with the results of the electrocardiogram. They all saw Falun Dafa's magnificence with their own eyes.
II. Everyone in Department Recites "Falun Dafa is Good"; Together Receive Merits
I work as a nurse and I'm very busy. I use the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to guide myself. As a practitioner, I try to set a good example for Falun Dafa and I always think of others first. As a veteran nurse, at work I instruct younger nurses with patience and care, and when there are problems, I take the initiative and accept responsibility. I get along well with everyone in the department and they have all seen the great changes in mind and body that happened to me after I began practicing Falun Dafa.
I take every opportunity to tell those who work around me the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa and tell them to quit the CCP. Most of them are willing to break off with the CCP by themselves after they know the truth. They also recite "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are good" every day. For the very few who are hard to persuade, I try to talk to them alone. With these efforts, everyone in my department now knows the truth about the persecution. In the duty room, they often grab a flyer and read it. In the wards, the patients often have Falun Dafa flyers in their hands. Sometimes when cleaners see Falun Dafa materials on the floor, they pick them up and give them back to us. Some nurses also take the initiative to give Falun Dafa materials to patients. Everyone has found out that when patients know the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa, they recover very quickly. Frequently when friends or family members of doctors and nurses get sick and come to get treatment, the doctors or nurses will get a Falun Dafa practitioner to talk to the patient and make them understand. During the Wenchuan earthquake this year, many people panicked. Some nurses in our department said, "Let's recite 'Falun Dafa is good'. We should be fine."
There are five other departments that are quite similar to us in the number of staff and patients. At the end of the year when the hospital gave bonuses to each department, our department was number one in the entire hospital, and we received twice as much as the other five departments at the same level. All the staff and team leaders in our department felt quite surprised and they said that maybe this was a type of merit Falun Dafa gave us. It really was a case of, "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities." (Zhuan Falun)
III. Reciting "Falun Dafa is Good" from the Heart and a Patient with Fatal Illness Saved
Master said, "People with predestined relationships and those who can be saved can be made to--made to by Master's Law Bodies, righteous gods, or the immense field that Dafa has formed in the world--appear right before you in any of a range of settings, providing them with a chance to learn the truth. But you have to carry it out, and it doesn't work if you're not out there doing things." ("Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital")
I take the people that I meet every day as those who have predestined relationships with me and I try to save them as best I can.
Three years ago, there was an elderly lady who was hospitalized in our department. She had leukemia and the doctor told her that she could only live for one more year. She also needed a blood transfusion every two weeks. Every time she came in, I tried my best to take care of her. Because she was frequently hospitalized, her family became numb about it. They were fed up and rarely accompanied her. Whenever I had some time, I would sit by her so she could share her feelings with me. As we got to know each other better and talked more, I told her my story of returning to health from a serious disease. At first she listened to it as if it were just a story. But later she began to recite "Falun Dafa is good." She said, "Whenever you people do exercises in the morning, I wake up, and I recite 'Falun Dafa is good' in my heart." She often reads Falun Dafa materials, and also passes them around to other patients. Just like this, unexpected by doctors, she is still living.
She came again some time ago. Her facial color was very dark, and the skin over her entire body was ulcerated. There were pustules everywhere inside her mouth and she could no longer speak clearly. It must have been very painful because she kept screaming. The doctor took a look at her and said there was no hope. Her family also gave up and began to prepare for her funeral. The doctor said, "This is already a miracle. With a disease like this, no one has ever lived this long." I went to see her in the ward. She said, "This time I really cannot live anymore. I probably won't last until tomorrow." I saw the eagerness to live in her eyes and I said firmly to her, "Madam, be strong. Do not give up even at the last minute. Just give everything you have to Falun Dafa." She nodded and closed her eyes. Tears ran down from the corners of her eyes. Two weeks later, all the ulcers on her skin were gone, her facial color was nice and fresh again, and once again she could talk. Her daughter said, "You saved my Mom's life. Thank you so much." I told them, "It is Falun Dafa's Master who protected her. Just thank my Master."
Dear fellow practitioners, let us use this time, play our role well as Falun Dafa practitioners and save as many people as possible as the Fa-rectification approaches. Let us work hard to not let sentient beings down and to fulfill our holy mission!
