(Minghui.org) There is a beautiful boulevard shaded with trees near my home. I often take walks there and run into people with different religious backgrounds, including Falun Gong practitioners. As time went by, I learned how to distinguish Falun Gong practitioners.

I was very busy with my work before I retired. I paid very little attention to anything else and almost never took public transportation. I was very surprised the first time a practitioner told me about Falun Gong. I thought to myself, “It's been over ten years since the Communist Party banned Falun Gong. How come there are still people practicing it?”

I like to listen to what Falun Gong practitioners have to say. They talk about Chinese traditions, which I agree with. My blood boiled when I was told how horribly the Party has been persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.

I have been getting copies of Minghui Weekly and other materials from practitioners. Those materials cover the arts, culture, science, and so on. I really enjoy reading them. They’ve opened my eyes and my heart. I now know the true meaning of life and fate. I also understand why people die in natural and man-made disasters.

Now I often recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Since I have been doing this, my feet no longer hurt, and the pain in my shoulder, elbows, and neck has disappeared. I am so happy!

I chose to place my faith in Falun Gong, because I believe it can bring blessings and it points us in the right direction.
