A Life Turned Around
(Minghui.org) Ms. Chen Baoxiu's life had a complete turnaround after she came across Falun Dafa. Life used to be hard for her, both physically and mentally.
She resorted to Buddhism for comfort, and never expected that it was Falun Dafa that could give her a new life.
Her family life was very traditional. She had two children: a girl and a boy.
Her life was peaceful and normal until one day her husband had an affair. After this happened, she got a divorce and had to raise her children alone.
She also had to pay off the mortgage alone, though her parents helped a bit. To make ends meet, she had to work two jobs.
Physically, she suffered from many health problems, and had to take many medications.
The Amazing Power of Falun Dafa
Ms Chen accompanied her sister to attend a nine-day video lecture session in New Taipei City on March 9, 2000. She was shocked.
She said: “How wonderful this Falun Dafa is! I felt very happy when listening to Master's lecture on the first day. I found it profound and miraculous.”
She went on to say: “I was looking forward to attending the session every day. I benefited tremendously. I felt I was so lucky to learn Falun Dafa.”
She has read Falun Dafa books and has practiced the exercises every day since. She felt her body was so light. Six months later, all her diseases disappeared, and she no longer needed to take any medication.
Not Injured in a Serious Car Accident
One day in 2001, near her home, she was on a motorcycle, and was hit by a car near an intersection. The car nearly crushed her, but she was not scared.
She said: “My first thought was that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. I will be fine.”
She also said: “There were many casualties at this intersection, but I felt calm in my heart.”
The driver was scared and wanted to send her to the hospital for a check-up. She told him that she was okay because she practiced Falun Dafa, and refused the money the driver offered her.
The motorcycle repair man was amazed when he learned that Ms. Chen was not injured at all, because her motorcycle was completely smashed.
He said that he admired her for not claiming any expenses from the driver.
Ms. Chen always remembers that she is a Falun Dafa practitioner, and makes sure to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her daily life.
Her goodness influences other people around her.
