My Family Also Benefits from Dafa
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Dafa taught me that the purpose of life is to return to my true self through cultivation. My worldview and outlook on life changed fundamentally. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance became the guiding principle that I strove to live up to every day.
Through cultivation, the “selfishness” within me gradually went away. I learned how to be considerate and kind to others.
I am a teacher. In the past, my heavy work load and family responsibilities destroyed my health. After practicing Falun Dafa, all the chronic conditions that tortured me went away. Yet whenever I experienced sickness karma, it always happened at night. Thus I did not have to call in sick. On the contrary, I felt energetic by the next morning.
So many miraculous things have happened to me during the past 20 years. And besides myself, my family members have also benefited from Dafa. I want to share a few of their stories here.
My daughter’s one-year-old son slipped in a puddle of water. He fell backward and hit his head on the hard floor, then cried in pain. My daughter picked him up. Soon after, his face turned white. He vomited and looked ill. My daughter handed him to me and went outside to hail a taxi to go to the hospital.
I quietly said, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” in the child’s ear. A few minutes after we left home, my grandson recovered. His color returned, and he stopped vomiting.
At the hospital, all his test results were normal. My grandson is now a healthy and bright third-grader.
My mother had a fall and fractured her right hip when she was 82 years old. She recited, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She could walk three days after her surgery and was discharged a week later. There were several other patients her age with the same injury at the hospital. My mother was admitted after them but was discharged before them. As we were walking out of the hospital, the head nurse gave her a thumbs-up and called out, “Good job!”
One regret I have is that I clarified the truth to only one patient there. At that time, I was not brave enough.
Three years later, my mother was admitted to an intensive care unit for pneumonia. My mother is hard of hearing, and no family members were there with her. By the time I visited her, her face was swollen and she was incoherent. I recited, “Falun Dafa is good,” and asked her to say it with me. Two days later, my mother was moved out of the ICU. I told her that Master saved her.
My mother had another fall and broke her right hip again. Under Master’s protection, she was treated and discharged from the hospital without complication. I often reminded my mother to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My mother just turned 94. She can independently take care of her basic needs, and sometimes takes a stroll in the community park at our apartment complex.
I am grateful to Master and Dafa. The only way for me to be worthy of Master’s compassion and my life is to be a diligent practitioner.
