I would like to tell you about the miracle of Dafa that I personally experienced after I started practising.
I started to practise Falun Dafa in 1996 when I was 61 years old. Before that, I had many illnesses. In order to heal them, I took medicine and also did physical training such as running and practising Taiji. However, some recurring illnesses, like psoriasis, serious chronic bronchitis, gastroduodenal ulcer, heart disease and serious inflammation of the shoulder joint, still caused physical and mental suffering, and couldn't be cured.
After practising Falun Dafa, my body continuously changed. The change of my psoriasis was the most distinct. When I travelled on business two weeks ago, I kept on scratching in the evening. But after I returned home, I found that my whole skin was bright without any psoriasis. I was so excited that I jumped up on the bed, shouting "my psoriasis is gone!" This recurring illness had troubled me for 33 years.
Another recurring illness was chronic bronchitis. It occurred every winter. Sometimes I couldn't lie in the bed because I coughed seriously as long as I lay down. After I started to practice Falun Gong, just within one month, my chronic bronchitis disappeared. It has never returned in the past 13 years. Other recurring illnesses gradually disappeared over a period of about two years. My face became rosy, and I looked more than ten years younger. Last year, the company I used to work at organized a health examination for retired employees. I didn't plan to go at first, but my wife urged me to go there. I thought that it might be helpful to ease her worries if I went, so I did. According to one director, the results showed that I was the healthiest one among all the retirees. When I had a colour ultrasonic examination, the doctor told me, "Your liver, gall bladder, spleen, lung and kidney are all very good and even better than those of young people. And there is nothing wrong with your prostate gland."
The changes in my body fully display the miracle of Dafa. Of course this is just the surface that we could see with our eyes. Miraculous changes also happened at a deep level; but it is not what one can see with the eyes. These miraculous changes are hard for ordinary people to imagine.
It is also quite miraculous that practising Falun Dafa quickly purified my mind, my bad habits and behaviour.
Before I practised cultivation, I had smoked for 37 years. Although, I deeply understood the danger of smoking and had tried several times to quit, I had failed. On the first day when I obtained the Fa, I read Lecture Seven of Zhuan Falun, the principal teachings of Falun Dafa practice:
"As a practitioner, why don't you take it as an attachment to be abandoned, and see if you can quit. I advise everyone that if you truly want to practice cultivation you should quit smoking from now on, and it is guaranteed that you can quit. In the field of this class, no one thinks of smoking a cigarette. If you want to quit, it is guaranteed that you can do it. When you smoke a cigarette again, it will not taste right. If you read this lecture in the book, it will also have this effect."
Although I had already bought a carton of cigarettes and smoked some at that time, I immediately threw away all the remaining cigarettes. Since then, I never smoked again. It has been 14 years since I quit this bad habit. I also got rid of other bad habits such as drinking alcohol when I started to practice cultivation. I became healthier in body and mind.
