Falun Dafa Changed my Life
(Minghui.org) I am 56 years old, and started to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. Practicing Falun Dafa has changed me.
Practicing Dafa Ended My Suffering and Brought Happiness Back
I started to practice Dafa for the sake of my illness. My health was very poor at that time: I suffered from hepatitis B, heart disease, cervical spondylosis, gynecological diseases, among other illnesses. I was suffering physically and mentally, and always felt exhausted. I tried treatments from Chinese medicine doctors and Western medicine doctors, but my health did not improve.
After I started practicing Falun Dafa, my health was restored within six months. When I went to the hospital for a physical exam, the test results showed that my hepatitis B no longer existed. This test result stunned Dr. Ma, who had treated me for many years. She patted me and asked me what happened. I told her that Falun Dafa made this happen.
I later went to the head of the police department to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. I showed him the hospital test results prior to and after practicing Falun Dafa. The police department sent people to the hospital to confirm my case. But they still detained me for 15 days for practicing Falun Dafa.
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa, I was taken to a labor camp twice. Despite experiencing the severe persecution, I am still very happy. I know how it feels to be without illness. Practicing Falun Dafa ended my suffering and brought happiness back to my life.
I Let Go of Self-interest and Did the Right Thing
I owned a video game room before I began practicing Falun Dafa, and the business was very profitable. After learning Falun Dafa, I understood that I needed to follow higher moral standards and consider others first.
“So as someone with spiritual aspirations, you can’t rely on the standards that other people have.” (The Fourth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
“What the average person considers good or bad isn’t necessarily correct. People’s values are so fouled up now that they won’t even listen to you if you point out to them that they are doing something wrong. So as practitioners you have to view things in light of the qualities of the universe if you are to really tell right from wrong.” (The Fourth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
I knew that video games were very harmful to teenagers. The teenagers are obsessed with these games and cannot focus on learning. I have seen many parents try various methods to try to control their children, but fail. I knew that having this business was not in line with Dafa's principles that require us to be good people, so I decided to give it up.
My husband was against my decision and said, “It is so profitable, and you gave it up?” He could not understand it. He beat me, cursed at me, and threatened to divorce me. But I was not moved. I was determined to do good business. I would never do anything to harm others. Dafa has changed me.
Honored With a Military Salute
The CCP's defamatory lies about Falun Dafa have polluted many Chinese people. I thus wanted to help people learn the truth about Falun Dafa. In the process of doing so, I encountered many touching stories.
One day I met a 70-year-old man dressed in a military uniform with a row of medals on his chest. I greeted him and praised him for his sacrifice for the country. We then started to chat.
We talked about the CCP's various political movements, and its persecution of Falun Dafa. I said that tens of millions of Chinese lost their lives due to the CCP's brutal suppression. I knew he was military. So I continued and exposed the lies told by the CCP during the anti-Japanese war. I then touched on how moral standards have deteriorated, yet Falun Dafa practitioners who follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are persecuted by the CCP. Their organs are systematically harvested and sold for economic profit.
The old man suddenly said, “The CCP is evil. It will be eliminated. I want to quit the CCP!” Then he gave me a military salute.
I understand that it was not my ability that made the old man understand the facts. It was Master's infinite compassion that helped him to distinguish between good and evil and gave him a good future.
