Two Stories of Amazing Improvements to Both Mind and Body

Reading Falun Dafa books brightens your heart and eyes: a 70-year-old takes off his reading glasses

I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from Liaoning Province, and I am more than 70 years old this year. Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had really bad vision. When the lighting was not very bright, I needed to wear two pairs of reading glasses, one on top of the other, before I could read properly.

One day in 2000, my son was watching television, and I was reading Zhuan Falun next to him (Zhaun Falun contains the core teachings in Falun Gong). As I was reading, suddenly I could not see through my glasses. I thought to myself: why is it that I still can't see anything, even while wearing these glasses? Is it because Teacher Li does not want me to wear glasses anymore? I silently said to Teacher, "I don't want to wear these glasses either. It's very tiring to wear them and sometimes it causes two dents on the bridge of my nose. Teacher, if you could give me brighter eyes so I am able to read Zhuan Falun and other Falun Dafa books, I will be very happy. I do not want anything else." I silently said these words and closed my eyes for a few minutes. From then on, I did not need to wear glasses anymore, even while reading the small version of Zhuan Falun. I haven't felt this good in years. Since learning Falun Dafa, I have enjoyed great changes to my health and well-being.

After 20 years of smoking, I was able to quit in one day

I was born into a worker's family in the sixties. It was a year of famine, and my father was the only person working in a family of six. His monthly wage was 60 yuan (Chinese currency; 500 yuan is equal to the average monthly income of an urban worker in China), and our lives were quite difficult. When I was young, I developed colds and fevers, and then contracted pneumonia, which stayed with me from that point on. Taking medication and having injections became a daily occurrence for me.

In 1980, I started working and became a coal miner. I worked in the mineshafts for five years. The working environment is very poor and I fell sick. Everything below my knees became freezing cold. I spent a lot of money but my illness could not be treated. I also had pneumonia, heart disease and tracheitis. The amount of medicine I needed to take was shocking. I looked for Chinese-medicine and Western-medicine doctors that could cure me, but without success. Eventually I suffered kidney failure and muscular atrophy, and though I survived, it pained me both physically and mentally.

One day in 1997, a person asked me to listen to the lectures by Teacher Li Hongzhi. The more I listened to him, the more I enjoyed it. When I came to the second videotape where he talked about quitting smoking, I wanted to quit right away. I had been smoking for the past 20 years. Miraculously, on the second day, I managed to quit smoking and have not wanted to smoke since then. Falun Dafa's principles truly attracted me and taught me where illness came from, how to be a good person, and how to be a cultivator.

With Teacher's help, I have cultivated for eight extraordinary years. Both my physical health and mental state have greatly improved, and Falun Gong has given me a new life.
