(Minghui.org) My son was born in the fall of 1998 when I was 24. A month later, I had severe breast disease and had to have surgery. My doctor told me not to breastfeed the child due to the inflammation.

More than a month after the surgery, another breast started to show symptoms of the same disease. I did not want to go through the same painful physical and mental experiences that I had during the first surgery. I felt helpless and scared. I did not know what to do.

Seeing my panic, my mother played for me the Falun Dafa lecture video. She also taught me the exercises. I clearly felt at the time that the only way out for me was to practice Falun Dafa. Despite the doctor’s advice not to stretch, I completed three times all eight stretching movements in Falun Dafa Exercise No. 1. 

That night, I had the symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea described in Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. The hard swollen lump in my breast that had tormented me for more than one month softened, and the pain was gone. I could not believe it all happened so suddenly. I could not help but cry with joy.

“Mother, look. I’m fine now!” I said.

My mother said, “Thank you, Master Li [the founder of Falun Dafa]. This is a miracle of Dafa. Master has taken care of you. He cleansed your body.”

Since that day, I have embarked on the cultivation path of returning to my original true self. 

Any hardship that I have gone through in the past over 20 years of cultivation has only deepenened my belief in Dafa and Master. It also led me to more firmly follow Master on the cultivation path to the end.

Veritable Cultivation and Great Changes

When I was little, I was timid, cowardly, and hesitant to speak my mind. I rarely dared to talk to my mother about my true opinions. This habit led me to develop an introverted, inferior, and suspicious personality. 

I had arthritis and stomach problems at the age of 6 and gum disease at 7. I was considered the weakest person in my class, both in elementary school and middle school.

I changed into a new person after I became a Dafa practitioner in 1998. I am 46 now and look younger than my age. At every class reunion from middle school and elementary school, my classmates always said that I had the best physical and mental health and looked the youngest among the group. 

My high school classmates said that I still looked as young as a student, but was more mature to have a peaceful mood. My personality has changed from introverted to cheerful and easy-going. They all know that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. They have seen the beauty of Dafa in me, naturally deflating the lies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) about Falun Dafa.

Many young women nowadays use all kinds of skin care products and some even get plastic surgery. When they knew my age, they were curious and asked what was my anti-aging secret. 

I said, “I have benefited tremendously from practicing Falun Dafa. I have never been to any beauty salon or used any cosmetics. I just follow the Dafa principles that Master taught us in Zhuan Falun.”

“Wow, that is great! Falun Dafa is really good!” they exclaimed.

After I took up Falun Dafa, the arthritis that had attacked me every year disappeared completely. My stomach problems were also gone, and I can eat anything now. I no longer suffer from menstrual cramps. I became so healthy and strong that I could climb to the top of any mountain without needing to stop for a rest. 

From my changes, my family and friends have witnessed the beauty of Dafa. My older brother is not a practitioner, but he has been supportive of my practicing. He always says that I could live to be 100 years old since I am always cheerful and never argue with people.

Dafa Is the Source of True Happiness

I have been working for 22 years, and my colleagues said that they have never seen me in a bad mood. They saw me always smiling and felt that I have been happy all the time. For this reason, anyone who had any complaints about anything would always like to talk to me about it, and I would comfort them with the principles of Dafa.

I told them, “There will always be unhappy things in life. As long as you have a kind heart and are tolerant towards others, you can let go of anything, no matter how difficult it is.” 

My colleagues said, “We would have no trouble if we could let go of things as easily as you did. It seems that practicing Falun Dafa is best approach!”

One day, my sister-in-law was bothered by a trouble that she couldn’t solve. It happened when I delivered something to her. Seeing my smiling face, she asked, “Sister, how can you be always smiling? Where is your happiness from? Why can’t I live as happily as you?”

I said, “My happiness comes from my practice. Once you also practice Dafa, you will naturally live happily like me. It is hard to express clearly the happiness of cultivation in words.”

My son was born to a family of Dafa disciples. He has grown up to be a tall and fit young man. He is humble and kind, and doesn’t swear under any circumstances. He always thinks of other people’s feelings before he does or says anything to them. He never litters, and always picks up trash on the streets and puts it in the garbage bin. He lives a simple life and treats people with sincerity. 

I have raised my son with the standards of Dafa. He thus understands the truth about Falun Dafa even though he is not a practitioner. He can be considered a relatively traditional and well-educated child in the chaotic society today. My father often said, “If everyone is as self-disciplined as my grandson, I don’t think the police would be needed.”

Endless Happiness from Cultivation

I thank Master all the time for his compassionate salvation. If it were not for Master and Dafa, I might have been lost in life like many people today.

I cannot express the endless happiness of cultivation with human language. I sincerely hope that more kind and predestined people can take up Falun Dafa and be blessed!
