Cao Huiling wasused to be an Assistant Professor in Soochow University[wjl5]Dongwu University  for more than ten years. Currently she is a full-time housewife. They both have impressive academic backgrounds and records. However, once they attained all the things thatowned everything they had beenspent their lives pursuing for all their lives--likefor example, fame, status and wealth—suddenly they were shocked to realize that in the process of pursuing their goals, they had unknowingly lost their physical health and peace offul mind. This kind of post-midlife-crisis is indeed difficult to describe mentality is indeed hard to describe it all.


(Gender: Female in her 50’s.  Name: Ms. Cao Huiling. Role: Mr. Zhang Qingxi’s wife. Time: 02:47-03:55)

It has always beenwas very painful for me to be liveing in thise world as a human being and be affected by this external environment. I have lived an uneasy life. It didn’t matter if I felt’s joy, anger, sadness or happiness, they all made me feellt uncomfortable. I wanted to get go beyond it, so I read a lot of books. I even practiced instudied religious and non-religious schools of thoughtteachings. However, wWhy did I choose this “Falun Gong” then? Actually I had practiced other self-improvement methods, yet my mind was still unable to be peaceful.  I wondered, would I ever be able to reach my goal after all? I really didn’t know. I had questions in my mind about all those methods and wasn’t convinced about their teachings. of /// It was not until I read the book Zhuan Falun that my mind started to settle down. The method taught by Falun Gong is very simple: you just get right into ito ahead to experience and practice truthfulness, compassion and forbearance in your day-to-day life. How you deal with everything is related with how you understand these principles of Falun Gong.  I feel that taking this path wais very natural. With the other cultivation methods that I used to practice, they taught you to do this or that, or they asked you to follow some precepts or rules, none of them gavemade my mind peaceful me a peace of in mind.  However, nNow, however, my mind and my body are at ease.

I am already over have already passed my 50. I came across Falun Gong after I was passedt middle age. I noticed that after turning 40, a man’smy eyesight started to deteriorates start to change and my eyes gradually showed signs of presbyopia. The physical condition of mythe body gradually declined. In the past, I didconducted myself based on understand some philosophy or motto of life, or on biographiesy of great people.  Those things all intend toI thought this would elevate one’sone’smy body mind and body mind, n. Nevertheless, what they talked about iswas very limited and incompletepartial. The wassystematic ic theories seem empty or lacking in some way, which make them difficult to apply and follow.  After you practice Falun Gong, it gives you a brand new visionperception of life. You understand that what it teaches makes real good sensehonest-to-goodness sense. And because of that you feel a certainty that you can continue practicing it.  ///you will then feel very fulfillingIts a very fulfilling feeling. Your mind and body are at ease. Yet, it’s not just like thisthat’s not all. As a matter of fact, it helps you carry out the purpose of your life in your day-to-day activities. Therefore, you live everyday with a great sense of fulfillment. Because of this, I think I’m lucky to have learned Falun Gong when I did was  the t .


(Female Narrator’s Voice. Time: 05:19-06:33)

To beFeeling fortunate to have learned Falun Dafa after he was pastpassed his middle age was a turning point for Prof. Zhang Qingxi. Before 1997, Prof. ///what Zhang Qingxi felt thatconsidered as thethe  important things inpurpose of his life was to eliminate injustice in the world and to demand justice in society. ///In 1989, he formed an organization callnamed Clean Organizationthe Clean Group with a group ofother professors in Taiwan. These intellectuals Clean Organizationwrote political commentary, yet did not get directly involved with politicsal activities. The purpose of the organization was to promote and achieve a free, fair, democratic, multi-faceted and egalitarian modern society. Based on their sense of justice and moral conscience, these twenty to thirty members of the Clean GroupClean Organization wrote the commentary based on their professional knowledge. Among intellectuals in the field, Tthey were looked up to as virtuous scholars among intellectuals who were involved with political commentary. Prof. Zhang Qingxi assumed the position of the head of the Clean GroupOrganization from 1997 to 1998. He challenged the authorities and exposed their misdeedsmalpractice. He condemned their inappropriate policies made by public offices with his pensboth in speech and in writing. He took a standstepped out and marched on the street for minority groups. He That was a Prof. Zhang Qingxi who was in high and elated spirits, and also a . He was Zhangbut also Qingxi who waswith angery.

He used to be an extremely impatient person. He was the kind of person who took justice in society very seriously. So his whole appearance looked very tense. Whenever he encountered something that didn’t live upmatch to his standard of justice, his body would reflect it. H and he wanted to demand for justice and would fight with otherslike that.  Although he didn’t have any illnesses, Bbecause of overworking himself for such a long time,his long-time overworking and exhaustion, although he didn’t have any illness, you could see that his complexion was not goodfeel, and he looked exhausted.  Now, because he has been practicing Falun Gong, you can see that his whole face and his whole appearance looks kind and gentle.felton  Before, hHis complexion turneds reddish. [.6] He [.7] andand he had a very short temper;, and h. He gaveput a lot of pressure on others. It would be impossible for him to tolerate you someone if you they couldn’t meet his standard of efficiency. For example, when I drove a car, he would sit beside me and complained about my bad driving, and he would be very nervous. Or if somebody didn’t drive fast enough, he would not be able tocouldn’t stand it. But now he is not like that.


(Female Narrator’s Voice. Time: 07:59-08:20)

What about Prof. Zhang Qingxi himself? What does he think about his former selfHow does he think about the old himhimself in former days? ///The man, who used to dare to roar at the political authority in power and who rushed to take the lead toin stamping out corrupt officials on the ground with his feet,/// is now a Falun Gong practitioner. Comparing his past with his present, he shares hishas  profound insightan especially deep feeling.


(Gender: Male in his 50’s. Name: Mr. Zhang Qingxi. Role: The main character of this program segment. Time: 08:21-10:00)

I had participated in and pushed through a lot of movements in society. Yet I felt very helpless. It was very difficult to try to do something to change the whole of society. Later, I told myself: it doesn’t matteranyway, it’s good enough as long as I myself have contributed and I couldcan answer account for to myself. Yet all these kinds of things, whether it wais doing academic research or participating in social doing society’s movements, weare actually very tiring. ///I used to play computer games and watch TV to relax myself.  I felt that that that was how I could unwind  morethat wasand save energy for the next day. ///After I practiced Falun Gong I changed completely. Which means that  Just fromby reading Falun Gong’s books and practicing Falun Gong exercises, I noticed remarkable changes in how I felt.  Gradually, I no longer needed the games or TV to relax.  Besides, after I got rid of those activities, I started to have a lot of free time that I can docould use for  Falun Gong. ///Before I practiced Falun Gong, sometimes my body became very tense because I was so busy working.  I  could not relax. Even if I laid down I was still not relaxed.  Yet after I started practicing Falun Gong, I gradually understood what relaxation iswas. ///When I lay down, I can actually feel a lot of the mechanismsthe energy fromof practicing Falun Gong working moving in my body.  Now I can actually feel comfortable and be truly at ease.


(Female Narrator’s Voice. Time: 10:01-10:32)

To rRelax, doesn’t mean just relaxing the body.  ProfMr. Zhang tells us his whole mind is also more at ease.  In the past, he thought that whilesince he mamaintaineding justice ffor the human world and didn’t seek fame or wealth, he didn’t seek for either fame or wealth, he should then be considered as a good person. However, from practicing However, it was aFalun Gong, heand understood that he should regard the nature of the universe, namely Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, as the highest criterion to discipline his thoughts and conducts. Thus, that he really cametumbledcame to understand realize what a real, good person really isis really about.

“After I joined the Clearance CommunityCheng Society I ’ve alsohad beenbecame the leader chairman of Clearance Communitythe society. AnywayNevertheless | many people think | in the past I used to do thingshad done | verya lot ||  for the righteousness uprightness of the society and had made some contributions, but laterin the middle of it all, I just started to feelfelt that in fact I could not really do | too muchanything, as if it’s itall it did was  just making make meyself feel better about myself. After I practiced learned Falun Gong, I have different opinions onthemy view pointviewpoint toon many things changed. So This also caused some of my old old day good friends, these good friends of mine “||” to have misunderstanding. // They think that you practitioners always restraint your selves, forwhen anything happens you always try look inside for the to find reasons in you, and pay little attention to the righteousness of the society.  They even said criticized me, saying that when I was in thea meeting I now sit quietly for two hours, whereas before I used to glare at others with anger, argue with people others and slap the table. . // NNow I not listen carefullyany and, and they foundeel that hard could notto accept this. They said asked me whether you wereI was still concerned about the society, and who wcould help fightthe injustice. Actually after practicedBut since I started practicing Falun Gong, I’m even in fact more concerned about this society and wenow think | how this is. Ifto really make the society better. The answer I found is that we really want the society to become better, then  | we have to change from people’s hearts hashave to change. That is the real concernissue.  If people’s hearts remain the samedon’t change, // all other things approaches won’t be very useful.

In fact can only have very limited the strengthand has limited strength is very limited. ||  Can that be considered an effective change| ?


Actually many people who are involved with social activities [a8]  activism [a9]  know that when they reach a certain point that and really can’t find anyno other ways to work things out, they have to go turn to education. And education // needs to start frombegin during childhood, because for adults it’s very hard to change college students their minds and habits. Educating // one a person from childhood until he or she becomes matureenters in the society needs attakes least over ten or twenty years., // whereas Genuinely practicing Falun Gong | changes a person in for two or three months could change a person, and . Wwithin several years thea whole opinions and views of a person’s entire outlook on life has getsis changedd. //His behavior getshasiswill also change for the betterd.   tooPeople make noticeable changes in their conduct soon after learning Falun Gong this , // so from my point of view as a professor, I think actually it is indeed  and much more efficient than standard education.


 //|| I developed  // a different point of view about the society, it feelswhich is:     || Iif we really want | to make our society or country to betterimprove, there aexists a set of we need some principles that can achieve this. Thise principles areis clearly stated very in Falun Gong as being Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.  You will notice  as long as you go to take a look at itthat   // the peoplethose who practice Falun Gong, their understandings about | the society or |  concerns towards the society isare // somewhat | different than the norm. They try to always be thoughtful of others first and not pursue various desires like fame or profit, so their behavior is more effective in improving the state of society.his effect to change the society is more active | and more efficient // This is the path I | have gone throughtaken and | based on my feelingexperience. So, especially with  my past friends, I of course didn’t am not thinking that what they have are doingne havedhas no effect.  However, now I understand that in the past like I felt my previous biggest pursuitng or  | goal  iswas social justice.

According toFrom what Prof. Zhang Qingxi has has said, “Falun Dafa” changed his opinion towardsoutlooks on  life, on the world and on the universe. Why For such an outstanding scholar in the area field of Economicsy Academy // Research, why did he choose to join take up the practice of Falun Dafa? // How did the principles of Falun Dafa ||    |enlighten him and| // influencinfluenceedhelp him? Did hHe really, after serious thinking and reflection, make athe rational choice after thinking and judgment?


(Mr. Zhang Qingxi’s voice at 16:30 – 18:51, around 50)

// It was not very easy | for me tTo start toWhen I began to practice learn about Falun Gong at first, I,  also went through an uneven pathhad a difficult time of it, because. I feltthink that scholars have their own mental barrierobstacles. ||    ||Later, because as I continually listened to Teacher’s Master Li’sthe Lecture audiotapes, I gradually knew learned the contents of Falun Gong. I know discovered that the Teacher is very righteous, n. Not savinghoarding money, not saving holding on to thingsmaterial possessions, and not pursuing fame or profit. To practice Falun Gong, We almost spent nothing except foraside from maybe buying books or tapes, there noare no other expenses . You can even get the books free from the internet or listen to the lectures online.  HHe requires you to start from off by being a good person, ||    |of course there are ideas of higher level | this kinds of spiritual rewardbenefitsing. However let’s just say that even if you do not recognizebelieve thatis, at least you will be a good person. You should start by trying to be a good person according to Truth, Compassion and Tolerance, and then try and be even better and better. So there will not be any lost’s nothing to lose. just thinkis But it still took me several months before Ito finally really decideddecide to practice Falun Gong myself.

// As for academic Economy[a10]the study of Economics , it is knowledge, principles, theories, and propositions. // As longBecause as economists or other theorists could justify themselves, hypothesis in economy | could explain a phenomenon and make some predictions the future, it could becaome a distinct doctrinetheory.  If someone’s theory has a wider scope, // he is then a biggreater scholar.  As for Nobel Prize winners, in fact, many of their the theories // have very narrow scopesy ranges of many scholars, including many Nobel Prize winners are very narrow. Then, even | withusing the current definition about scientific definitionsce to look at Falun Gong or the book Zhuan Falun, one finds that it is in fact a very very broad science, and Whereas Falun Gong, or this ‘Zhuan Falun’, is in fact a very very broad science. he is a supernormal science, because ithe talksed about many things that modern science could cannot yet explain or daredoes not even to touchapproach, in such a level. Therefore I felt that | even withgiven our current definitions about science, judging Falun Gong based on our definitions in science, it is very scientific, because it talks about so many things it talked about have nowithout any contradiction. This is one a basic fundamental condition that for me to I accept it.  // Of course I also meet have some | friends who theythat could not accept it, as they are // dedicated to ||    || | so-called “theories” of the academic world. // ordinary people’sThese theories things tobasically blocked the thing that lets them from considering truth beyond the scope of the theories, or toeven from learning something as profound as Falun Gonge,.  Sometimes I feltelfeel very regret pitysad for them. ||   My own understanding is that it’s not superstition, it’s a very profound supernormal science.”
