(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from in a remote town in Jiangxi Province and have practiced cultivation for 20 years. I've greatly benefited from Dafa and have not spent a penny on healthcare since I started living by the Fa principles. I recently witnessed a change in my husband’s attitude towards sickness karma and realized the seriousness of Dafa cultivation for new practitioners who are elderly. I understand that any time a person's life is prolonged beyond its predetermined age is granted only for Dafa cultivation.

My husband is 68 and a retired department store worker. He developed uremia when he was young. In 2018, several hospitals refused to treat him due to the severity of his illnesses. The doctor said that my husband suffered from many conditions that couldn't be cured, including kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and epilepsy. In addition, the medications to treat those diseases can interfere with each other. His only recourse was to rest at home.

He totally collapsed after being rejected by the hospitals. My husband was very stubborn, so I patiently explained to him, “Medical treatment cannot cure your diseases. Ordinary medicine's ability is limited; only God can save you. Falun Dafa is the greatest Buddha Fa, and it can offer true salvation. You witnessed how my body became healthy after cultivating Dafa. Isn’t it the best thing for people to be healthy and peaceful? As long as you believe in Teacher Li, there will be a way to save you.”

This time, my husband accepted what I said. He agreed to try to study the Fa and practice the exercises with me. His physical and mental condition soon greatly improved. He didn't take any medication for over two years and didn't have any relapses either. His complexion changed from dark to bright, and he also gained back some of the weight he had lost. In addition, his stubbornness and hot temper changed, and he became more peaceful. His body and mind went through radical changes!

During the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) “Zero-Out” campaign against Falun Dafa practitioners in the second half of 2020, my husband clarified the truth to personnel from the political and legal affairs committee, his employer, and local communities when they tried to force us to sign a document declaring we would give up our belief. He showed themhis medical records and told them how he became healthy after cultivating Falun Dafa. The personnel left in silence after they heard the facts.

Many of our relatives and acquaintances were amazed at my husband’s dramatic changes during the short time he was practicing Falun Dafa. They decided Dafa was good and withdrew from CCP and its affiliated organizations. 

In December 2020, My husband and I ran into a person on the street who was in poor physical and mental condition. I talked with him about the persecution of Falun Dafa and wanted to give him a Dafa amulet. However, he declined to take it. I then told him with compassion how my husband's health improved because of Dafa.

Since we were talking on the street, my husband feared that we would be arrested as I had been illegally arrested six times and detained at forced labor camps twice before. He not only refused to help me to clarify the truth to his man but also said, “Don’t listen. It’s useless!” The person immediately left and possibly lost the opportunity to hear the facts about Dafa.

The next day, my husband was unable to study the Fa or do the exercises. He would snore and fall asleep when he started to read. Within days, the diseases he suffered before came back. It is just as Master Li said, 

“We have said that good or bad comes from a person’s initial thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Lecture FourZhuan Falun) (Confirmed)

Out of fear, my husband not only said something nonconforming to Dafa and betrayed his own conscience, but also put his life in jeopardy.

My husband was admitted to the hospital and received a blood transfusion and underwent hemodialysis. This not only cost a lot of money, but also left him in a very difficult situation. I said to him solemnly, “The only way for you to be saved is to confess your mistake to Master, acknowledge the great sin you committed, and promise to correct your behavior in the future.” Master is most compassionate and capable. It is up to my husband to choose which path he wants to walk.

I also learned a serious lesson from my husband’s experience. Cultivation during the Fa-rectification period is truly serious, especially for any new, elderly practitioners who have serious sickness karma.
