(Minghui.org) I am 91 years old this year and in excellent health! I raise chickens and pigs, cook, wash clothes and also do some farm work. I do not have any illness or pain, can sleep really well, and eat just like a normal person. However, no one can believe that I used to be physically disabled and could not even look after myself. How did I recover from persistent ailments and physical impairment?
I was born with a disease in which my eyelashes grew inward toward my eyeball. It felt as if my eyes were being cut by a knife. It was so painful that my eyes teared constantly. I also suffered from something like rheumatoid arthritis since I was a child. That condition left me feeling cold all the time and gave me chronic stomachaches, and it accompanied me for more than 60 years.
When I was small, I was working in the fields when a big buffalo caught me in its horns and threw me into the air. I broke several bones in my lower back as I hit the ground hard. As my family was poor and had no money to see a doctor, I became physically disabled and could not look after myself after this accident.
When I was 20 years old, I got married. My husband married me despite my disability, as his family was poor but wanted an offspring to carry on their family line. After the marriage, I gave birth to two daughters and three sons. However, I was still disabled and could not look after myself. I was tormented by illnesses for most of my life.
In 1998, when I was 68 years old, I was fortunate to find the Falun Dafa cultivation practice. After hearing the lectures of Teacher Li Hongzhi, I began to feel hope. When the Falun Dafa practitioners read the teachings, I listened to them attentively and remembered the content. After returning home from the practice site, I made use of all my available time to listen to Master Li’s lecture recordings and persisted in practicing the exercises, never stopping for even one day.
Day by day, my body got better. Two months later, a miracle happened: my eyes, which were almost blind, recovered! My eyelashes were growing away from my eyeballs, and I recovered my eyesight. I can even thread a needle now, and the lifelong rheumatoid arthritis that left me cold and gave me stomachaches was resolved. My back, which was injured by the buffalo, no longer ached. Not only can I totally take care of myself now, I can also even do housework.
What is more miraculous is that I used to be illiterate, but now I can read the entire book of Zhuan Falun!
After learning Falun Dafa, I understood the purpose of life and knew that I need to discipline myself based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, cultivate solidly and look within for my own faults first when I run into any conflicts. Now, my entire family lives in bliss and also shares a harmonious relationship with our neighbors. The people around us all know the miracles that happened after I cultivated in Falun Dafa, and they believe Falun Dafa is good!
I hope more people can understand Falun Dafa and believe that “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” as this is the life-saving prescription during this period filled with disasters and troubles!
