My Family and I Have Experienced Amazing Changes
(Minghui.org) I had a bad temper and a strong competitive mentality before I began practicing Falun Dafa. My marriage was in turmoil and I was constantly ill. I could not stomach even the most simple foods like broths, without having uncontrollable bowel movements. I finally went to the hospital, but nothing helped.
My mother had a mental illness and my father was burdened with the stress of being the sole breadwinner of the family. After my brother married he was in debt. My child and I had to move in with my parents. Those were hard times for our family.
My child picked up a brochure in 2006 which contained information about Falun Dafa, and showed it to me. I learned about the live organ harvesting taking place in Shenyang City and I was appalled by these atrocities.
After meeting some Falun Dafa practitioners I felt that they are all very kind. After I began reading the main book of teachings, Zhuan Falun, I understood the meaning of life and learned to elevate my xinxing. I experienced amazing changes almost immediately! My illnesses disappeared, and I could even drink cold water and eat foods that I was unable to before. My whole family witnessed that Falun Dafa was amazing.
I've now cultivated for more than a decade. I've had many tribulations, but I know that I can only truly let go of my attachments by firmly believing in Master [Li Hongzhi] and Dafa.
Master and Dafa gave me hope when I was at my lowest point.
My Entire Family Experiences Positive Changes
“…with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia).
I have personally experienced this. Since my health improved after I began practicing, I could help out more at home. I was able to take my child to school and bring him home, and work some part time jobs to help the family. My brother also managed to pay off his debt quickly. During harvest season, I sold my cotton for the same amount of money as my sister-in-law, even though my plot of land was half the size of hers. I knew that Master had helped resolve my family's financial problems.
Although my mother did not cultivate, her mental state improved, and she was able to do house chores and take care of herself. Her body became stronger, and at the age of 72, she was still able to carry a 165-pound wheat sack to the grinding mill and grind the wheat all by herself. When others marveled at her strength, she replied, “That’s because I keep saying, ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
My child also believes that Falun Dafa is good, and he is different from the other kids his age. A week before the college entrance exam, he was attacked by his classmate for no reason and needed seven stitches near his mouth. His friend wanted to punch the boy who attacked him but my son stopped him. His teacher wanted to inform the school, but my son, having learned about the values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, chose to take a step back. Since it was almost time for the college entrance exam, if he had told the school what happened, the classmate would have been detained because he was 18 years old, and this would have negatively affected the rest of his life. My son told the classmate not to act impulsively again, and let the matter go. The classmate who attacked him was very remorseful and apologized to my son.
My son always helps out with chores at home, and he cooks for us during festive celebrations. He recently found a job without much trouble. Dafa has changed our whole family for the better and brought us prosperity.
The Urgency of Saving People
I started clarifying the truth and handing out information soon after I began practicing. Throughout these ten years, I've met all kinds of people, and I've been able to cultivate my xinxing and improve.
One man told me that eating cold noodles gave him a stomachache, but he was fine after he remembered to say, “Falun Dafa is good.” Another time, his gas stove caught on fire, but the fire went out after he called out, “Falun Dafa is good!” He came to me and asked for more truth-clarification materials so he could give them to his friends.
Many people truly believe that Falun Dafa is good, and have quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. They've signed the petition calling to bring the chief perpetrator, Jiang Zemin, to justice. Sometimes when I see them, they shout, “The truth about Falun Dafa is real! I need to quit the CCP! The Party keeps doing terrible things that make China look bad. Everything they do hurts China!” There are also those who react negatively and they've even called the police.
My younger brother used to object to my practicing. When I first began to practice, I didn't know how to look inward. I only knew that I needed to clarify the truth and expose the persecution. Once, many workers from Henan came to harvest our wheat. I thought that I shouldn’t miss this precious opportunity to save people, so I talked to them during their lunch break. I told them everything, including about the “self-immolation” at Tiananmen Square, the reasons Falun Dafa is being persecuted, and what Falun Dafa is. The workers were very receptive, and my brother listened as I talked. When I asked him to bring a few DVDs to the workers, he readily agreed. He was delighted when he returned and said that the workers promised to come back and harvest our wheat again next year. My brother subsequently got a job at a very large company in Shanghai.
My niece was only one year old when my brother started working outside. After a few years, my nephew was born, and the workload increased at home. Although I tried my best to help my sister-in-law, sometimes she still grumbled and vented her frustrations at me. I never argued back however, and just laughed it off and looked inward. Both my brother and my sister-in-law eventually felt the power of Falun Dafa.
Because of the persecution, my father often worried, and always waited for me to come home when I went out to hand out truth-clarification materials. In 2015, I was abducted, taken to the county police station, and illegally detained for 15 days. When I came home, my father burst into tears and forbade me from going out to clarify the truth. I knew that this was a test of my attachment to family, which was trying to inhibit me. I asked my Dad, “You know how bad my health was before I studied the Fa and began practicing. Everything good in my life was given to me by Master. Shouldn't I do as he asks? Could you have given me health?” After my father thought over it, he shook his head and said, “Go and do what you're supposed to do. Falun Dafa is good.”
When my son came home during the holidays, he saw that I was going out to clarify the truth and he grumbled. I said, “Saving people is a very urgent matter! I need to go out!” My son laughed and agreed. When I returned, my son had dinner ready. I knew that I had made the right decision.
The CCP recently announced that they wanted to eliminate what they were calling "gang" groups. When I was clarifying the truth, a village secretary warned me to be careful. I said, “It's very important to differentiate between what's right and what's wrong. Many Chinese are quitting the CCP. Here, take this, The Ultimate Goal of Communism.” The secretary accepted the book and agreed to quit the CCP. Not long afterward, I met another village secretary on his way to the county government meeting. I clarified the truth to him and gave him a booklet. After he quit the CCP, he said, “In China, it's very rare to meet someone who sincerely wishes you the best!”
Dear fellow practitioners, please clarify the truth! No matter how hard the circumstances, we will be able to overcome them. What's most urgent is saving people! Thank you, Master, for compassionately helping me and my family!
