Today, I finally overcome difficulties, take pen in hand, and write of my sister's and my experience in obtaining Falun Dafa. I aim to let others understand why there are so many people cultivating Falun Dafa at the risk of encountering persecution by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).
When I was 20, I had a bad skin disease. At the beginning, there was a little on my chest. However, it quickly spread to my whole body. In the end, it reached my face, bringing a lot of discomfort to me.
At that time, I spent a lot of time looking for doctors and medicine. I used to hide from the sun, otherwise I would develop blisters all over my body. I tried acupuncture treatments combined with long-distance walks for 60 days. I used to purchase a lot of medicine as well. If western medicine did not work, I would try Chinese medicine. If Chinese medicine did not work, I would look for folk prescriptions. Whereas, I went with a great hope and came back with great disappointment every time. I looked for doctors everywhere. Therefore, I spent a lot and suffered a lot with little effect.
At one time, when qigong (exercises for the mind and body cultivating the 'qi' or 'vital energy') became popular, I heard that it might help and so I began to do qigong. I tried many types. I practised several type of qigong each day in attempts to recover from my illness. I even created "Zifa Gong." My health condition became more and more terrible, until I was a wreck.
I was in total despair. I could not bear it any more, and became bad tempered. I did not want to see others. However, I was a teacher who had to face students, which caused me a lot of pain. If it were not the young children and beloved relatives, I think I would have died.
When I was just about to give up, my life turned a corner. In February of 1998, my mother-in-law gave me a book and said,"You should read this. It is a valuable book. You can be saved." I took a look at the book, namely Zhuan Falun. I thought it was fine for me to read and above all, it was done out of a mother's kindness. I became so excited after reading it; I suddenly understood everything, which helped me solve all my problems. When I felt despair, there was a voice in my mind,"Do not worry. You will be better. No matter what it is, you will have a bright future." I felt strange and wondered who said that. I came to understand that it was Teacher who cared for me. I shouted out, "I have obtained Falun Dafa. I have obtained the universal Law."
Finally after such a long wait I got connected with Falun Dafa. I was very happy! From then on, I was on my way, following Teacher. And I became better and very happy. Teacher not only saved me, but my family as well.
My sister had not been well since she was young. In the winter, she would have asthma, finding it difficult to breathe. In the early summer of 1998, she was badly ill. We went to several hospitals. All of them said there was nothing they could do. During those days, our family was very worried about her. My brother took her to a clinic 5 kilometres away. Although they could not help, we did not give up.
I used to advise her to cultivate Falun Dafa, she refused. One month later, the family was too busy to take care of her. I took her back home. She was bored and took the book Zhuan Falun. She could not stop and told me she would like to practise with me. At the beginning, there were a lot of things coming out of her mouth and nose. She was not afraid and said that practising Falun Gong had led to the cleaning her body. After my sister had been at my house for seven days, she became healthy. She never took any medicine. She was just got on with her things and simply forgot about her medicine.
It shocked my family as well as all the other people in the village who started to cultivate Falun Dafa as well.
Falun Dafa spread to more than 100 million people in the whole country. In fact, everyone had his or her own story and marvellous experience. During the persecution, my sister was in custody, had things confiscated and was fined many times. She suffered a lot. In spite of this, she persists in cultivating Falun Dafa. As she knows that it was thanks to this practise that she now has her health.
It is said, "Receive the favour of a drop of water and repay with a gush from a spring." All of us who have experienced Falun Dafa, how can we not let more people come to learn that the persecution is just plain wrong and the Falun Dafa is a great practice, benefiting both body and mind.
