Hope for the Hopeless
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners benefit from the practice, not only mentally but also physically. When their family members witness how they change, most of them also believe Falun Dafa is good. When they recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” they are blessed, too.
Below are two such examples submitted by practitioners.
Hope for the Hopeless
I used to work in the healthcare sector and I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996.
In 2012, my husband died unexpectedly in an accident. It was a huge blow to my 77-year-old mother-in-law. She couldn’t sleep, lost her appetite, and became weaker by the day.
I was very concerned about her. I was sad, too, but tried to console her. “I know you are grieving. It’s hard for both of us. But please understand that none of us can change your son's fate. He will be at peace if you live a healthy and happy life.”
“I don't know how long I can go on without sleeping or eating. I don't see much hope,” she replied.
I suggested that she sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told her that she would sleep soundly again and her appetite would return if she did.
“Really? Just saying those phrases will do it?”
I told her that Falun Dafa is a supreme practice of the Buddha school and that it has miraculous healing effects. If she believed it, she would be blessed.
“Alright,” she said, “I will give it a try.”
I went to check on her a few days later. She was delighted to see me.
“You are so right! The phrases you told me to say are amazing. Now I sleep good, my appetite has improved, and I’ve got my energy back. Thank you so much for telling me! I have hope again. Thank you, Dafa’s Master, for helping me!”
Another time, she had knee pain that affected her range of motion. The medication and treatment she tried didn’t work. She remembered the power of the phrases and began to say them again, day and night. While half asleep, she heard someone tell her that her knee was better now. When she woke up, she was able to bend her knee without any pain and she was able to walk up and down the stairs with no problem!
She could hardly contain her excitement and told me: “Falun Dafa is truly great! Master Li cured my knee pain! It is amazing! Thank you, Master!”
My mother-in-law is 85 now. She has been saying the phrases daily. She is healthy, happy, and able to take care of herself. She often tells others that she is blessed by saying “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Because of her, the entire family witnessed the wonder of Falun Dafa.
Recovery from End-Stage Cancer
My brother was diagnosed with stomach cancer and lymphoma on January 3, 2018. Both cancers were in the end-stage. His stomach hurt so much that he could not eat solid food, just drink milk. The tumor in his stomach was the size of a large egg, and the lymphoma had spread to other parts of his body. The hospital discharged him for palliative care. His son was grief-stricken and started to prepare for his father's final days.
I heard about his situation and hurried to visit him. My heart ached when I saw him, but I told him there was still hope. As long as he could recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” Dafa’s Master Li would help. He seemed hopeful and promised that he would recite the phrases.
From that day on, he began to sincerely recite the phrases. Several days later, he was able to eat rice congee. His family members all saw he’d improved and also began to recite the phrases.
One day, he had diarrhea and vomited, and his family panicked. I told them to calm down, that it was Master Li cleansing his body and that he would be fine.
The next morning, my brother woke up feeling better. He asked his wife to prepare some solid food for him, because he was hungry. She was worried it was not a good sign since he had not eaten any solid food for a long time. After he finished eating, she asked him hesitantly, “Does your stomach hurt after eating such a big bowl of rice?” He replied, “I am completely well! My sister is right, the phrases really work!”
From then on, he was able to eat whatever he wanted. His appetite returned, his health improved, and he was able to work in the fields shortly after. All the villagers were amazed. During the New Year gathering, I told all the villagers and our relatives that my brother had recovered by saying “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told them how wonderful practicing Falun Dafa is and facts about the persecution. Many of them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its related organizations.
