Dafa Put Me Back on My Feet Again
(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Wei Huoqing. I am 34 years old and live in Shiqiaozi Town, Zhucheng City, Shandong Province. On January 21, 1995, I had a car accident and my leg sustained a compound fracture. The driver of the car drove off without stopping. I was only twenty-four and the sudden misfortune gave me and my family a heavy blow. Even a year later after recovery, I still could not bend my right knee. In April 1997, I had another operation to remove the steel plate inserted in the initial surgery and loosen the muscle tendons. The surgeon said that because of the severity of the accident, my condition at that time was already better than expected.
Later, I could only manage to bend my leg to a maximum of 60 degrees, and no more. I had great difficulty in walking, not to mention getting a job. Young as I was, I felt that my disability had made me totally useless. I felt so helpless in meeting my future needs. In August 1997, a friend recommended a book, Zhuan Falun, and told me that this could be the book that could help change my life.
Clinging onto a slight hope, I began reading Zhuan Falun. What a priceless book! Through reading, I have come to understand that all of our hurdles in life have reasons. Only through the path of cultivation can a person enrich his life and return to his true self. Since then, I started to seriously practice Falun Gong.
When I first started practicing the exercises, I encountered a lot of difficulties. Particularly in the sitting meditation, I could not fold my legs. Then, I decided to spend more time reading, as I believed my condition would improve. As expected, shortly afterwards, I could do the single leg crossing. Eventually, my other physical discomforts also disappeared and my right leg regained the same flexibility as before my accident.
My feelings of happiness were beyond expression. It was Dafa that had saved me, and I was committed to continue practicing and cultivating.
The enormous, miraculous change in my body surprised everyone around me. They all wanted to learn Falun Gong as well. Thus, the word of my recovery started spreading, and everyone began speaking highly of Dafa.
