An Old Man Who Looks Like He Is Only Forty Years Old

A few days ago, I met a man who looked like he was about 40 years old. However, he is actually already 70 years old. The following is the story he told me about himself:

Over the span of 20 years, I had been diagnosed with more than 20 different diseases. I tried every medicine that I could find, but my diseases could not be cured. After I had entered my 40s, I tried various meditation methods in hopes of getting some relief from my diseases. However, after spending all of my savings, my diseases still didn't go away. I was even diagnosed with lung cancer and told that I didn't have long to live.

One day in November of 1996, one of my friends introduced me to Falun Gong. After I discovered that learning and practising Falun Gong does not cost any money, I immediately made up my mind to practise it. That was the happiest day of my life. From then on, I joined a group of other practitioners at the local exercise site to study the Fa and do the exercises. I also told other people about the beauty of Falun Gong, and I was strict with myself in following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.

At home, when my son-in-law criticized me, I was no longer as affected. Instead, I looked within and aimed to be even more calm next time. When I had problems with fellow practitioners and I tried to talk to them but they ignored me, I also decided to not take it personally and look within to find my own shortcomings. Most of my diseases went away as a result of the practice, and I became healthy. One day when I was doing the exercises, I saw a white light piercing though my chest and restoring my lung. My body has changed a lot with cultivation.

After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, we lost our exercise site, but I didn't give up practising. I firmly believed in Master and the Fa, and I always try to continue to improve myself and maintain righteous thoughts. When officers from the police station came to my home to harass me, my wife and I told them about our wonderful experience with Falun Gong and they left. I also went out to distribute materials to clarify the facts about Falun Gong and to help people quit the CCP - even with policemen following and monitoring me - while maintaining righteous thoughts."
