[PureInsight.org] Over the summer, one of my university classmates was going to leave for America to study. It might be another two years before we would see each other again. We decided to take a trip together before she left. She stayed at my home the night before so we would have an early start the next day. After dinner, we talked a lot. My friend old me that she envied how well my family got along and she wished that she could also have a mother who happily chats and even jokes with her own children like my Mom does.
My friend's comment made me recall the great difference in my Mom before and after she began to practice Falun Gong. I told my friend that it was because of cultivating Falun Gong that my Mom has became a happy and healthy person. Before she began her cultivation, she was ill-tempered and would never allow me to bring any friends home.
Before she began to practice Falun Gong, my Mom was unhappy every day. She rarely smiled. She was addicted to cleanliness. I suffered greatly when we ate together. She always got mad at us for dropping small grains rice on the floor. She was not emotionally stable. She often lost her temper over very little things. My younger brother and I felt a lot of pressure under the tense home atmosphere. It was as if we were walking on egg shells all the time. We did not even want to go home. Once we got home, we were afraid that our Mom would get mad of us for not putting things away properly. Our mother was also a person who easily became overly anxious. My brother and I never dared to tell her anything about school so that she wouldn't panic. She also had a very small social circle. Other than the people she worked with, she had no friends. She was living a boring and lonely life.
However, everything greatly changed after she began to practice Falun Gong. My Mom no longer stares at the floor constantly checking for rice or hair. The atmosphere at home has become warmer and warmer. My Mom is living a different life. Not only does she happily talk about her experience at the Fa study, but she also tells other people about the benefits of Dafa. I am very happy to see that my Mom not only has improved her health, more importantly she has improved her own mind.
Upon hearing about my Mom's story, my friend sighed and said, "It would be very good if my Mom is willing to practice Falun Gong, then she wouldn't have a bad temper from her menopause."
My Mom's experience shows that Falun Gong is able to improve people's nature and mind. I believe that throughout Taiwan, there are many stories like my Mom's, where people changed a lot after cultivating Falun Gong.
