(Minghui.org) In 1998, my husband began a cultivation practice called Falun Gong. I was curious about what he did when he met with his fellow practitioners. I discovered that they took time every day to read books together and share their cultivation experiences. I saw that these Falun Gong practitioners were all good people. They did not lie or fight with each other. They were kind and humble. I listened when they read the book and agreed with the principles they discussed. I soon decided to practice Falun Gong also.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999. I was afraid, but I did not give up the opportunity to practice cultivation. On the most difficult and horrible days, I distributed truth-clarification materials door to door and told people the facts about Falun Gong face to face. I once distributed 2000 copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to various material sites by myself.
However, I gradually stopped Falun Gong practice and Fa-study due to various interferences in my life. My mother died. My eldest brother became depressed and committed suicide. Another of my brothers attempted to kill himself on two occasions. In addition my father became addicted to alcohol. I worried about them all and spent lots of time taking care of them. In the long run, I gradually stopped studying the Fa for more than 10 years. However, I was not able to change the situation of anybody else in my family.
During those 10 years, I was plagued with all kinds of diseases. I was even diagnosed with a brain tumor. In May 2019, my muscles became soft and my limbs were weak. My memory was poor, and I experienced vomiting and difficulty breathing. I went to various hospitals and was ultimately diagnosed with advanced- stage liver cancer. The doctors suggested my family prepare for my funeral.
My husband had strong righteous thoughts. He believed I would be well if I practiced Falun Gong again, and he believed Master would take care of me. Thus, I decided to practice Falun Gong once again.
I felt better but my daughter forced me to go to Beijing for treatment anyway. I did not want to have a conflict with her so I agreed to go. However, I insisted on listening to the Fa during my trip. I felt much stronger when I arrived in Beijing. My vomiting stopped and my breathing improved. The hospital in Beijing gave me a thorough check-up and found I had hepatitis instead of liver cancer.
My family had spent plenty of money at hospitals in an attempt to treat my disease, without any effect. However, after only one month of resuming Falun Gong cultivation practice, my life was saved by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder. I told the truth about Falun Gong and my personal experiences to the people around me. A few of them started to practice Falun Gong as well.
I regretted that I had stopped cultivation for so many years. I will continue on and live my life according to the standards of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”.
