(Minghui.org) Che Jinai was the seventh out of eight girls born into a impoverished family in Neimen Township of Taiwan. Her father could not support the family on his own, so her mother worked on a farm. After graduating from middle school, Jinai went to a city in the north to study child care. Unfortunately, her mother was diagnosed with cancer in the year she graduated. Jinai got married at the age of 19 and became a mother a year later.
She did not know how to get along with her husband and mother-in-law. In addition to work, she had to prepare the family’s meals and care for her child. She cried daily because of the pressure she felt from quarrels with her mother-in-law and husband.
At the age of 24, Jinai set up a learning centre with a small number of students. After working hard for two years, the number of students tripled, but she came down with many ailments, including stomach pain, endocrine disorders, skin allergies, migraines, back pain, and general malaise. She took Chinese and Western medicines and went to fortune tellers, but there was no improvement in her condition.
She also needed to take care of her second child, a one-year-old daughter, and her mother-in-law who was diagnosed with cancer. At such a low point in her life, she reluctantly ended her career at the age of 28, moved back to Tainan, and stayed at home for six months.
Cultivating Solidly after Obtaining Dafa
When she was 28, Jinai saw an advertisement introducing Falun Dafa in Tainan. She decided to sign up for a nine-day class to learn it. She decided to read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, first. After finishing it, she realised that it was a precious book. It was a book that she had been looking for all her life!
She said, “Many so-called truths I had heard about in the past did not help. I had to rely on myself since I was young, so I was rather careful. I learned to be cunning and many bad concepts and behaviors to survive. I learned a lot, and knew how to behave well only after reading Zhuan Falun.”
However, on the way to the nine-day class, Jinai was involved in a car accident and suffered bruises all over her body, and even lost a piece of flesh on her calf.
The motorcycle driver who caused the accident helped her get up. She was about to yell at the driver, when she suddenly remembered a teaching from Zhuan Falun, and immediately said calmly, “It’s okay! You can go!” The driver could not believe what she said and confirmed it with her several times before leaving. She thought about going home to clean herself up, but decided to go to the nine-day class instead.
After completing the nine-day class, she wanted to participate in the group morning exercises. However, she usually slept until almost noon, so how could she get up at 4 a.m.? She chose to do the exercises at home at first.
Jinai said, “When I meditated, I felt strong energy flowing through my body. It’s amazing! And I could get up at four o’clock the next day to participate in the group exercises.”
Improving with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in Mind
After going to the practice site to do the exercises on the first and second days, Jinai returned home and slept until 3:00 p.m. However, she no longer slept so much on the third day. Three months later, she felt very good. She had never experienced a completely illness-free feeling before.
She has now been practicing Falun Dafa for over 20 years, and her health remains good. Occasionally, she experienced the symptoms of a minor cold, but would get well without taking medicine.
Jinai is very grateful to have the opportunity to learn Falun Dafa. After obtaining the Fa, she always thinks about the meaning of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and considers the Fa when encountering problems in her life. In the past, her ability to solve problems was not good, and she tended to shirk responsibility, lose her temper, and hurt others. Now, when she encounters an unpleasant situation, she can handle it calmly.
She said, “After studying the Fa, I understood the principles of how to be a good person and how to do everything well. Now, I consider others first, not my wants and needs.” When experiencing problems, she can find ways to solve them instead of complaining, worrying, or hiding from them. She will learn when she is lacking the knowledge or skills.
She studies the Fa, does the exercises, and looks inward every day. She is healthy physically and mentally, and has a positive attitude. She is no longer trapped by fear, restlessness, and jealousy.
She said, “After practicing Falun Dafa, I changed from having low self-esteem to becoming brave and confident. I know what to do, and believe that I can solve everything.” She continued, “I am in good health and good spirits. So, I am happy and I can control my temper. I’ve not been angry for a long time. I don’t even know how to get angry anymore.”
Helping Others Benefit from Dafa
After going through the low point of her life, Jinai can empathise with others and understand what would help them. She speaks with her mother-in-law patiently, using a peaceful and caring tone. Little by little, they mended their relationship and now treat each other like mother and daughter.
Jinai’s husband is a kindhearted and skillful carpenter. She understood his difficulties and came up with better ways to get along. Later, her husband also started practicing Dafa.
She raised her son and daughter in a cultivation environment. Her son has married and established a business. Her daughter plays cello on the international stage.
Jinai, who is always smiling, often uses the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to help others. She says, “After becoming a Dafa practitioner, the happiest thing I can do is to help others benefit from Dafa!”
