How I learned the Limitations of Science and the Profoundness of Qigong
(Minghui.org) I was educated in China, and what I learned was filled with communist notions and empirical science knowledge. With decades of teaching and research experience after that, I was confined by a narrow ideology based on the knowledge that was proven by contemporary science. I did not realize that science only reflects a limited portion of the world around us.
I was invited by the National Human Body Science Society to attend a national qigong symposium and an international qigong conference in 1993. Many qigong masters and researchers from around the world attended these events. Some qigong masters did demonstrations and researchers presented their research findings with empirical methods.
The experience and knowledge I acquired in these conferences shook my previous belief in science: “Qigong is not superstitious but a deeper science that our current knowledge could not explain.” From then on, I was thinking of practicing qigong.
Attending Falun Gong Lectures
I took part in a lecture series taught by Master Li Hongzhi in 1994. In the first several classes I could not help but fall asleep when Master was lecturing. However, I was still able to hear every word that Master said. My husband and I discussed the class content on our way home, and he was surprised that I had heard everything despite being asleep. That was exactly what Master said: “Though they may sleep soundly, they hear everything without missing a single word.” (Zhuan Falun)
At the end of the class, we took photos with Master. While I was looking at Master, I was so tempted to have a photo right beside him. Thus, I gathered all my courage and went up to Master, “May I have a photo with you Master?” Master said, “come here,” and indicated for me to stand right next to him. A few students at the back were unhappy about this and made noise. Master turned back and said to them, “she will take only one photo.” People at the back became quiet. That was the happiest moment in my life.
That night, I said to my husband with a determined heart, “I will practice Falun Gong forever.”
At that moment, I saw a Falun with a red pink center, large gold swastikas, and light blue background in the outer circle. The Falun was rotating for several minutes. Neither my husband nor my daughter, who just stepped into the room, could see it, but they believed what I told them.
My eyesight started to decline in the 1980s. I had to rely on reading glasses for reading and writing, or I would get a headache and be nauseated.
Two months after I started practicing Falun Gong, I was preparing teaching materials. I fetched my glasses, and it fell out of my hand. The bridge was broken and the frame separated into two pieces. Without the reading glasses, how could I teach the class? However, it was too late to notify students of cancellation of the class. I picked up my textbook and opened it. To my surprise, I found that every word was clear. Besides, I did not come down with a headache nor become nauseated. My eyesight had become normal! I no longer needed the eyeglasses.
After that, many of my chronic diseases, such as pelvic inflammation, hemorrhoids, arthritis, and dry eyes disappeared. I witnessed the magnificence of Dafa and I am deeply grateful.
