(Minghui.org) I am 89 years old and my wife is 88. Our health was restored on May 13, 1997, when we started to practice Falun Dafa. Many amazing things have happened to us that science cannot explain, and I would like to share a few of them.
Our Cataracts Disappeared
Forty-five years ago cataracts had started to form in my eyes. The ophthalmologist said, “There is no medicine to cure cataracts, but they develop slowly and you will not lose your sight overnight. However, as you get older, your vision will get worse. When you cannot see even with strong glasses, you will have to have surgery. That is the only way.”
I had to wear glasses from then on. As the doctor said, the lenses got thicker and heavier until they were too heavy for the bridge of my nose and my ears. Then I had to use a magnifying glass. By 1996 I couldn’t see even with a magnifying glass. I knew it was time to have surgery, but I was hesitant because two of my younger friends had lost their eyesight after cataract surgery.
While I was still in a quandary about what to do, in May 1997, one of my in-laws came to visit us and introduced us to Falun Dafa. He invited us to an experience sharing conference and to watch the video lectures given by Master Li, Falun Dafa’s founder, on May 13.
At that time, he was in his 80s. He said that he had been in poor health, but after practicing Falun Dafa, he became stronger and healthier. He could ride a bicycle over 150 miles a day and carry it up to the fifth floor. His experience sounded incredible, so we decided to go to the conference.
What a blessing! Master’s video lectures totally changed our worldview and I regretted that I hadn’t learned Falun Dafa earlier. Shortly after we started to practice, all our health problems disappeared. I knew clearly that it was because Master purified our bodies. We couldn’t have been more grateful.
The feeling of my body being purified is still fresh in my mind. I clearly felt several Falun (law wheels) spinning under my eyebrows and at the corners of my eyes. My eyes were cool and comfortable. Soon, I could see quite well. I could read books and newspapers without glasses at the age of 80. I could use a computer for seven or eight hours a day without feeling tired. Because I write slowly, it took me two days to handwrite this article but my eyes weren’t bothered.
Something similar happened to my wife. Her eyesight was not good and she had to wear several pairs of glasses. After practicing Falun Dafa, she could see better and better until now she doesn’t need glasses anymore. She even won the seniors’ vision contest in our community.
We both believe that Master gave us better eyesight, not for our convenience but to encourage us to cultivate better.
Riding a Motorcycle
My wife and I often go out on our motorcycle. People who see us are always surprised because it is rare to see people our age on a motorcycle.
When we visited a friend in the hospital, the parking lot attendant was surprised. He said, “There are over a hundred vehicles parked here, not one by someone your age. By the time most people are 50 or 60, their children drive them everywhere. I admire your good health. How do you do it?” My wife told him that we practice Falun Dafa. He gave us a thumbs up.
I heard many people say similar things. In fact, both of us had several health problems before we took up the practice. My wife had gastritis, gastric prolapse, and arteriosclerosis, which made her as thin as a rail. She even had difficulty walking by herself. I had more serious issues than she did, such as atrophic erosive gastritis, severe prostate hyperplasia, heart disease, and kidney cysts, not to mention cataracts. I was desperate.
They all disappeared after we started to practice Falun Dafa. It was amazing. We never imagined that we would be able to ride around on a motorcycle by ourselves.
Stomach Tumor Disappears
I found a walnut-sized hard lump on the right side of my stomach on April 10, 2009. It hurt so much that I couldn’t stand, sit, or lie down. Sometimes the pain made me roll around in bed. It felt like a knife was cutting me. When I was in pain I couldn’t stop kicking and I tore a big hole in my bedsheet!
The pain continued for ten days, until, on the tenth day, I remembered that Master gave each of us a Falun in our abdomen. I asked the Falun to help to destroy the lump and repair my body.
Because of the pain, I missed my nephew’s wedding. After the wedding ceremony, friends and relatives came to visit me. It was 3 p.m. I went to the bathroom and expelled a lot of fresh, dark red blood. I was relieved immediately and the lump was gone. I knew Master had helped me again. I knelt down in front of Master’s picture and couldn’t thank him enough. My family was also amazed at my speedy recovery.
During all these years I have told many people about these experiences. I’ve also told them how wonderful Falun Dafa is and how terrible the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecution is. Many people thereby learned the truth and quit the CCP. I hope more people will benefit from Falun Dafa after reading my story.
