I began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. Before I joined the practice, I was ill with many serious health conditions, such as pulmonary heart disease, a neck tumor, congenital rhinitis, and intestinal tuberculosis. In addition, I was almost blind and couldn't see people's faces clearly even when they stood in front of me.
One day my son-in-law said, "Mum, you should practice qigong." I replied, "Why should I bother to practice any qigong before I die?" Two days later he brought me Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong. My entire body shuddered when I picked up the book. I started immediately and read the book daily. After two months, I no longer needed to wear glasses, and I was miraculously free from all my illnesses. What's more, my menstrual period returned three times. My gray hair turned black even though I was over 60 years old. It seemed that I looked and felt ten years younger. Everything that is written in the book about Falun Gong is true.
Do Not Hit Back When Attacked, Do Not Talk Back When Insulted
I only had three years of elementary school education. When I started to study the Fa, I couldn't recognize many words. However, I kept reading the Fa every day and asking others to explain the characters I could not read. At the beginning my husband refused to let me study the Fa or go to group Fa-study, so I read the Fa at home. He wouldn't let me to turn on the light, so I read by the light of the TV when others were watching it. Then my husband turned on the light and no longer interfered with me.
After I studied the Fa, I knew Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance was good and behaved accordingly. It happened exactly as it is written in Zhuan Falun, "Perhaps as soon as you step in the door, your spouse will throw a fit right in your face. If you endure it, your effort of practising qigong today is not in vain."
Teacher spoke of something that happened to me. As soon as I walked in the door, my husband beat me, cursed at me, and threatened to kill me. My daughter and son-in-law practice Falun Dafa. My daughter said, "Mother, do your sitting meditation. Dad can't hurt you!" I said, "Teacher's fashen will protect me." My husband continued to abuse me verbally and humiliated me. Even my children cried in anger when they heard the dirty words that came out of my husband's mouth. Sometimes he hit me with a big stick. Thankfully, Teacher protected me. I only behaved as Teacher taught us. I won't hit back when attacked and won't talk back when insulted.
Cultivate Dafa Firmly
After July 20, 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong, my husband's mind was poisoned by the government's constant distorted and false propaganda. He, along with my relatives and friends, did not let me practice. I did not let this deter me. I thought that, even if no one else in this world practised Falun Gong, I would remain firm. My husband asked me while clutching my throat, "Will you practice Falun Gong?" I replied firmly, "Yes, I will." He was terribly angry, but released me.
Now, my husband has changed. He recites "Falun Dafa is good" daily. He has also received benefits from my practising Falun Gong and from his being supportive--he hasn't needed any medication for several years. His hands were crushed by a four-wheel vehicle, but with Teacher's protection they were not flattened. He did not feel any pain in his hands and continued to work as usual. When he was asked if he felt pain, he replied, "I don't feel pain at all. Teacher is protecting me. Dafa is truly miraculous!"
Being Considerate of Others Is Saving More People
I've talked about Falun Gong to my family members, relatives, friends, neighbours, and my daughter's co-workers and have tried to persuade them to quit the CCP. I've also spoken to our neighbours and renters and helped them with everything I could. In winter when it snows, I sweep and clean the courtyard. They all say, "Auntie, you are great." I reply, "This is what Teacher tells me to do." Such trivial incidents can show that Dafa is good. Once I was told that someone had praised me. I found out that it was the secretary of Hanjia Village. He said at the table while having a meal, "Falun Dafa is really good!"
I tell people how good the practice of Falun Dafa is and try to persuade them to renounce the CCP while I am out walking, taking buses, or purchasing groceries. I write "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" on all the money I spend.
I have followed Teacher's requirements, which are in my mind: be considerate of others and save more sentient beings. So far, all my neighbours and renters have renounced the CCP. In addition, they are helping their families and friends to quit the CCP.
