With Righteous Thoughts in Our Heart, the Fa Will Reveal Its Mighty Power
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Gong practitioner who is a village farmer in China. I would like to share some of my cultivation experiences from the past few years and the miracles I have experienced from practicing Falun Gong.
This incident took place in April 2005 while my youngest son was working as a day laborer in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province. On the evening of April 28, I received unexpected news that my son had fallen from the sixth floor and was in the emergency room. I was studying the Fa with several fellow practitioners when I received the news. I was so shocked that my mind went blank. After a while, when I finally came to my senses, I decided that no evil life from another dimension has the right to interfere with my cultivation or persecute my family, because I am a Falun Gong practitioner. I decided to completely negate all the evil elements from other dimensions and their wicked persecution attempts. I knew that with Teacher and the Fa beside me, everything would turn out all right.
The next day I prepared to leave for Shijiazhuang to check on my son. I was also prepared to clarify the truth to people I met during the trip because I am a Falun Gong practitioner. I took Zhuan Falun and Falun Gong truth-clarification materials with me. Because the train arrived in Shijiazhuang at night, I had to stay the night at an inn near the train station. That night I ran into several fellow travelers from around China at the inn and told them about Falun Gong. I also gave them each a copy of The Epoch Times' Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Then I walked out of the inn and distributed truth-clarification materials to stall keepers on the streets.
The next morning when I saw my son at Shijiazhuang Hospital, I started crying uncontrollably. He was indeed badly injured. His pelvis was severely fractured in three places and his hip was terribly swollen. He was lying down face-up due to the fractures. While he was overcome with excruciating pain, I read Zhuan Falun to him and instantly the pain subsided. The doctors explained to me that the surgery would cost more than 100,000 yuan. As an hourly laborer, my son had no medical insurance. Besides, we could not pay the large medical bill in a metropolitan city such as Shijiazhuang if he was to stay in the hospital. My son and I had a discussion and decided to go home. While we were checking out of the hospital, I distributed Falun Gong truth-clarification materials and the "Nine Commentaries" to patients in the ward.
After we returned home, I played Teacher's Fa lecture audio recordings for my son. He also read Teacher's articles when he was able to. After less than 50 days, my son was able to get out of bed and walk. He made a very quick recovery. In fact, he is now as good as new.
My son's miraculous recovery caused quite a sensation in my village. People in the village have become convinced that Falun Gong is very good. This experience reminds me of something Teacher said,
"...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits" ("Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia")
We are ever so fortunate to witness the miraculous power of Falun Gong and Teacher's compassion and protection.
There is another story I would like to share. One day I lent Teacher's Fa lecture audiotapes to a fellow practitioner. After she returned the tapes, I discovered that one of the tapes was terribly jammed. I felt very sad and pained. How did she manage to get the tape jammed? I had been playing the same tape for years, but it never jammed. She should have been more careful. If I had known this would happen, I would never have agreed to lend the tapes to her. After a while, I decided that it must have been interference by evil from other dimensions attempting to prevent us from listening to Teacher's Fa lectures. I started sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the wicked lives from other dimensions and their interference with and damage to Teacher's Fa lecture tapes because these tapes must work normally. After sending forth righteous thoughts for a few minutes, the tape began to run normally as though nothing had happened at all.
One day an older fellow practitioner and I traveled to a neighboring village to clarify the truth and distribute truth-clarification materials. After we entered the village, we began clarifying the truth to market vendors. When we came to a small stall full of people, I told them that Falun Gong teaches its students to be better people, but Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to the most terrible persecution. When I was talking about how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would ultimately receive heavenly retribution, a man jumped out and grabbed my bag of truth-clarification materials. He declared, "I will report you to the police and have you arrested."
I didn't run. I stood still and sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil and bad elements manipulating this man. We are Falun Gong practitioners and we must never allow any evil to interfere with our mission of saving sentient beings. It's important that we clarify the truth to bring out sentient beings' Buddha nature so that they will make a wise decision that will determine their future. I had no fear at all. I thought only of saving sentient beings because it is the most sacred and magnificent mission, and no evil has the right to interfere with it.
My thoughts must have been pure and righteous because the man emptied the bag for the entire street of people to see. In no time people fought for and grabbed all the materials. The older practitioner and I smiled at each other in satisfaction. Once again, I realized what Teacher meant when he wrote,
"When disciples have ample righteous thoughts
Master has the power to turn back the tide"
("Master-Disciple Grace" in Hong Yin II)
Not long ago, I watched "Fa-Teaching Given to the Australian Practitioners" and reminisced over the first time I watched Teacher's Fa lecture video eight years ago. It had such a significant impact on me when I saw in the video that Teacher was anxious because we were not diligent in our cultivation practice and was patiently answering questions like a parent educating his own children. May "Fa-Teaching Given to the Australian Practitioners" motivate us to become more mature. We must not have Teacher worry about us any longer. We should do the three things more diligently.
