Denying the Old Forces' Arrangements Helped My Mother Recover from Cancer
(Clearwisdom.net) My mother had breast cancer in 1992 and was cured. Near the end of last year, however, she suddenly fell ill again. She spit out blood and there was also blood in her urine. We took her to the hospital and the doctor performed a color ultrasound. He found that my mother had cancer in her bladder and liver. She also had kidney stones, which caused her a lot of pain.
I asked myself what I should do. If I followed the principles of everyday people, then I would have to focus all my attention on taking care of my mother, but there are also higher-level principles.
Teacher told us,
"...the things that happen to ordinary people, as Buddhists put it, all have underlying causes, and for ordinary people things like birth, aging, sickness, and death are just a fact of life." (Zhuan Falun 2003, "The First Talk")
My mother is one of the sentient beings. Birth, aging, sickness, and death are the things that the old forces have arranged for her. I must deny the old forces' arrangements. I must not allow the old forces to interfere with me. I need to walk my cultivation path well.
When my mother was ill before, I played Teacher's Fa-lectures to her and I explained to her the purpose and the meaning of cultivation. She knows that I am a cultivator. I was forced to undergo a series of brainwashing sessions in the beginning of 2001. I was unconscious when I was released. It was the Fa that restored my life, so she knew that I couldn't live without the Fa and my heart is devoted to clarifying the truth to save people. She had righteous thoughts and never once asked me to stop what I am doing to take care of her.
A miracle happened after one month. She was able to eat and drink and go downstairs again. Dafa is magnificent! She felt sick again this June. They did another color ultrasound and found there was cancer in her liver again. Like the last time, I treated it with a peaceful heart. I abandoned the notions of everyday people. I denied the old forces' arrangements by focusing on doing the three things that I should do as a Dafa disciple. After some time, my mother got well again. She's a healthy person now. Isn't this amazing?
We can tell from my experience that as Dafa disciples, as long as we study the Fa more to strengthen our righteous thoughts and deny the old forces' arrangements, we will be able to go beyond everyday peoples' qing.
I know it was Teacher that solved my mother's tribulations and showed us His boundless compassion. I think Teacher also tried to encourage me via my mother's story that the cultivation path is not difficult as long as we study the Fa, strengthen our righteous thoughts, and do well with the three things that Teacher has asked us to do.
