The Seriousness of Cultivation in Falun Dafa as Seen Through Different Results of Four Traffic Accidents
(Clearwisdom.net) Between July 21 and September 5, 2004, four Falun Gong practitioners had traffic accidents in Binzhou City, Shandong Province. The practitioners' different mindsets led to different results.
Practitioner A: This practitioner was riding a bicycle and ran into a motorcycle. An ambulance came in time. The practitioner was still conscious after the accident, and told the doctor his work place and home telephone number. The practitioner requested that the hospital call his family. After a family member (also a practitioner) arrived at the hospital, they discussed and agreed to do open-skull surgery. The practitioner was unconscious for six days after the surgery and later died.
Practitioner B: After dinnertime, a husband and his wife (a practitioner) were taking a walk on the street when a car hit the wife and knocked her about six meters away. She lost consciousness immediately. She was sent to a hospital by her husband, who is not a practitioner. The hospital suggested open-skull surgery but the husband did not agree. Four days later, the practitioner regained consciousness. When she realized that she was lying in a hospital, her first thought was, "I am a Falun Dafa disciple, I don't have any illness." She firmly asked to go home. She fully recovered after a week at home. She and her family experienced the great power of Falun Dafa.
Practitioner C: A practitioner's son and daughter-in-law were illegally sentenced to three years of forced labor because they clarified the truth about Falun Gong. This practitioner did not deal with the case with righteous thoughts. In order to get the detained son and his wife out of the labor camp, the practitioner used his connections, invited the officials for dinner and sent them gifts. The practitioner then claimed that his son and daughter-in-law would be released soon. Unfortunately, the practitioner was hit by a truck while riding a motorcycle one day. The practitioner died at the accident site.
Practitioner D: A practitioner was riding a motorized bicycle and was hit by a car from behind. The practitioner felt a shake in his/her head and faded away from consciousness. Suddenly, a thought came to the practitioner's mind, "I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, it should not be like this. I should be OK." After a while, the practitioner started to gain his/her senses back. The driver of the car, who was very scared said, "Let me take you to the hospital!" The practitioner replied, "I do not want to go to the hospital." The driver said, "I am the CEO of the agriculture bank, just tell me how much you want, I will pay you money." The practitioner said, "I do not want any money, please drive more carefully in the future." (The practitioner later regretted not mentioning that he/she was a practitioner, out of fear.) After saying these words, the practitioner walked home with the damaged bicycle.
During the final stage of Fa-rectification, it is especially critical for Dafa practitioners to conduct ourselves as true cultivators. The outcomes of our actions and decisions are directly related to our mindsets, and are determined by whether or not we are behaving like Fa-rectification Dafa disciples. During this critical period, let us do well the three things that Master asks of us, diligently cultivate our xinxing, and root out any remaining human attachments, so that we may walk our remaining paths righteously. These four accidents and the different results are a reflection of the seriousness of Dafa cultivation. Only when we do well and have faith in Dafa and Teacher at critical times, can we validate Dafa and break through the tests imposed by the old forces.
