Experiencing the Miracle of Dafa and the Power of Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) It happened last winter. One day on the way to work, I walked out of the house and at the same time I locked the door. Then I realized that I had forgotten to bring the door key. Since my husband was out of town, I had no other choice except to go to my son's school to get the house key from him. On the way, I twisted my leg. It was quite painful and became more so as I went along. By the end of day, I was unable to walk because of the pain.
I could not fall asleep due to the pain. There was no bruising, discoloration, or swelling -- it just hurt. I could not do the exercises or even send forth righteous thoughts. When lying in bed, I felt that my leg was baking in an oven, no matter how I moved it. The pain started to get worse until I could not bear it and I shouted out; but the more I shouted, the more the pain intensified. I had no other choice but to loudly call out for Teacher. While I was calling out Teacher's name, I felt ashamed and then said to Teacher: "Dear Teacher! Just look at your student, she is really useless." After this I was able to fall asleep. I did not know how long I slept, but I was awakened by pain and the pain started to get intense again. I planned to call Teacher's name again, but I felt shameful again. Then I thought, instead of begging Teacher, why not say, "the Fa rectifies the cosmos, the evil is completely eliminated." Therefore, I repeatedly said the phrase and I fell asleep without even noticing. I woke up in the morning and found my leg was no longer hurting and I could do the double lotus position in the fifth exercise and send forth righteous thoughts as well. But I still could not stand on the ground. When my feet touched the ground, the pain was still excruciating.
After getting up from bed, I crossed my legs and calmly looked into myself to find my attachments. I found one after another and there were a lot of bad thoughts on my mind. I was afraid of forgetting them, so I wrote them down one by one. Then I sent forth righteous thought to eliminate them and then studied the Fa (1). I repeatedly did this throughout the entire day and the time went by very fast.
I had to go out the second day, but I still could not walk. At that moment, one thought came into my mind: "This is not right, even though I have attachments, the evil cannot use them as an excuse to persecute me and even to stop me from doing Dafa work." Therefore, I sat down again and sent forth righteous thought to eliminate the evil that was persecuting me and hindering my Dafa work. Five minutes later, I got up and found that I could walk again!
In practicing Falun Dafa for more than five years, the miracle of Dafa has manifested itself to me in all kinds of ways. It has encouraged me to become a more diligent practitioner and to keep improving in my cultivation. Every time I make a mistake and fall down, I can always get up right away without any hesitation and keep moving forward.
