Resume Practicing After Doubt Cleared
24th October 2004 Chia Gut Kiang - Klang, Selangor
Greeting Master and fellow practitioners.
I am Chia Gut Kiang, 66 years old, my hometown is in Pulau Ketam, I am staying in Klang, Selangor now.
One day just after the lunar Chinese New Year in 2003, one of my neighbor in Pulau Ketam came to see me and introduce me Falun Gong. At that time, I saw many people practicing the exercise in the VCD, I think that it should be a very good exercise, so I started to learn it. But I didn’t continue after practicing for 3 weeks, one of the reason is that, when I am studying <Zhuan FaLun> together with fellow practitioners, I found that our complexion, hands and feet are all ruddy. I find it very strange at that time. I didn’t know that it is a sign when one cultivator’s body has improved. And the negative reports about Falun Gong also make me worry. I also wonder that whether the exercise will cause insanity.
After I stop the practice, one of my sons started to practice Falun Gong due to curiosity. During that period of a year, my son kept encouraging me to continue the practice and explain to me the truth of Falun Gong. I was then touched by his word. He said that I never improved my health after so many years of seeking divine’s help and divination. Falun Gong is a good practice, why don’t I give it a try? I think it over and over, I wonder that my body is pain here and there, and the pain on the waist already last for many years, why not try it out. I have to keep my body healthy, if my body is not fit, and with the pain on the waist I won’t be strong enough to go worship?
So, I started to practice Falun Gong again after this lunar Chinese New Year. When I just begin to practice again, there are some negative reports about Falun Gong was published on the local media which vacillating my mind again. I really want to know is Falun Gong legitimate? Will I be arrested by police for practicing Falun Gong? I really worry about that when practicing Falun Gong in the park. So I always look around while practicing with so much worry. After encouraging from my son, I start to go back to practice at the practicing site again.
Since the lunar Chinese New Year till today, I already practice and study the book for more that 8 months. First, I would like to share the changes on my body attained from the cultivation practice. My right hand is originally swell and pain, and it is as hard as the rock. After I start practicing Falun Gong, the swell has disappeared, and I don’t feel pain anymore. Also, I have serious pain on the waist accumulated from my everyday work. After working for 10 to 15 minutes I will feel really sore on the waist. Each time I have to change my posture to temporarily relief the sore. But it doesn’t happen again after practicing Falun Gong.
The obvious changes on my body are my complexion become luminous，smooth, reddish. I remembered that when I attended a relative’s wedding ceremony recently, an aunt who has been practicing qigong for many years asked me what tonic did I took that my complexion looks so good. After she knew that I didn’t take any tonic but practicing Falun Gong, she decided to practice Falun Gong immediately. In addition, the white hair near my forehead starting to turn black from the root, it is really inconceivable.
Falun Gong is a very good practice. I almost miss it due to misunderstanding in the past. Therefore, I hope that I can introduce it to more people. More people will come to understand it and practice it.
Above is my personal experience in the cultivation practice, if I had said anything wrong, please correct me. Thanks everybody.
