How Telling Everyone “Falun Dafa Is Good” Made All the Difference
(Minghui.org) An old couple has rented a house from me for many years. A while ago, the 87-year-old husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, and his doctor said he was too old to undergo surgery. I worried about them and decide to tell them more about Falun Dafa.
When they rented the house from me 7 years ago, I clarified the truth to the wife. She understood that Falun Dafa was slandered by the Communist Party but she dared not tell her husband, who was a retired medical doctor. So I went to their home one night and chatted with them.
I told them how practicing Falun Dafa positively impacted my life, how my kneecap was broken twice, but I recovered after I began practicing. The husband accepted what I said and withdrew from the communist party.
When I heard that the husband had lung cancer, I talked to them again. This time I told them to remember and say, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
After his situation became stable, the couple traveled with their children. However, the husband experienced some alarming swelling on the trip. The family thought he was dying and immediately brought him home.
His swelling subsided gradually after he came back. The family was surprised at first. When they learned that he was only saying the two verses and there was no special medicine, some of his family members also began to say the two verses.
A few weeks after he returned, I visited him again. I met one of their neighbors while I was out shopping and mentioned the husband's cancer. The neighbor said the old man appeared healthy, and he had been telling the neighbors that the hospital misdiagnosed him.
I sensed that he might be in danger because he was lying about how he recovered.
He opened the door and invited me in. Two other neighbors were also there and they were talking about the coronavirus pandemic.
He told me, “I am in pain again.” His wife added that he was getting worse and probably would be hospitalized soon.
As we talked about the pandemic, I also clarified the truth to the neighbors. I waited until they left and then told the husband, “By repeatedly saying, ‘Falun Dafa is good’ you have benefited. You ought to tell people the truth about how it helped you, otherwise you may have a relapse.”
He realized that he has to be truthful after benefiting from Falun Dafa. He promised that he would tell people that it was Falun Dafa that helped him. While we were still talking, he said, “Wow, the pain stopped!”
I said it must be that he realized his mistake and promised to correct it. When a person’s mind becomes righteous, everything becomes positive. I encouraged him to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in his life and his health would continue improving. His wife said, “Your Master must have extended my husband’s life, otherwise he wouldn’t be alive today!”
Since then, the old man firmly believes in Falun Dafa and often tells people that Falun Dafa is good. Now he looked healthier and full of energy.
