The Righteous Thoughts of a Falun Dafa Disciple
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner A is 70 years old. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Here are three stories about her.
Practicing the Sitting Meditation with a Fractured Vertebrae
On March 2, 2010, Practitioner A slipped while walking. She had a very bad fall. Her son carried her home. She had terrible back pain when she got home. She thought to herself, "I am a Dafa practitioner. Although my back hurts, my legs are okay. I want to do the exercises." She didn't think of anything else and started practicing the sitting meditation. No matter how her back hurt, she stuck with it. Slowly she felt a Falun turning where she was injured. Her whole body felt light. The more she meditated, the better she felt. She did one hour of sitting meditation. That night, she did another hour of sitting meditation.
On March 5, all of her children came home. Her three sons took her to the hospital for an x-ray. It showed she had a fractured vertebra.
She didn't pay any attention to the diagnosis. She sent forth righteous thoughts: "I am a Dafa practitioner, I cannot treat myself as a patient!" She insisted on doing everything herself. The first time she went to the bathroom, it took 40 minutes to make the round trip from her bedroom to her bathroom. Enduring the pain, she continued to do the exercises, send forth righteous thoughts, study Teacher's new articles, search inward, and remove attachments. One week later, she could walk around with ease indoors. Three weeks later, she could climb stairs. Four weeks later, she returned to her group Fa study. Five weeks later, she was able to go outside and clarify the truth with fellow practitioners again.
Sending a "Bounty Hunter" Away with Righteous Thoughts
In 2007, several practitioners at the same Fa-study group went to a vegetable market to talk to people about Falun Gong and advise them to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. Practitioner A was busy talking to people, when she noticed a woman following her. After a while, Practitioner A started telling her about Falun Dafa. The woman asked, "Where do you work? How come you believe in this?"
After Practitioner A told the woman about her occupation, she said clearly, "Falun Gong can help people get rid of illnesses and have a healthy body. Why not believe in it?" The woman again asked, "What does your husband do? Does he believe in it?" Practitioner A told her that he did. Practitioner A continued to clarify the truth to other people and send forth righteous thoughts at the same time. Later she discovered that that woman was still following her, so Practitioner A turned around and asked her, "Are you looking for me?" The woman was surprised and replied quickly, "No, no." She immediately turned around and walked away. The evil factors behind her were eliminated by the Dafa practitioner's righteous thoughts. Later, she learned that the woman was a neighborhood CCP official.
A Reason to Bring Teacher's New Articles to Practitioners in the Forced Labor Camps
In 2002, Practitioner A's son was taken by the police to a forced labor camp for clarifying the truth. When Teacher published a new article. Practitioner A memorized it and went to the forced labor camp. When she got there, the guards would not let her see her son. Practitioner A refused to leave. She sat down quietly sending forth righteous thoughts. Suddenly, she started wailing for no reason. Even she did not know why. She had never cried like that in her entire life. The guard heard her and called his supervisor immediately, saying, "There's an old lady here crying horribly." So she was allowed to see her son. But the visitors' area had video surveillance. The guards could see both the visitor and the prisoner's every single move. They could also hear them. Because there is a large table between the two, one cannot hear if the other speaks softly. However, Practitioner A held a strong righteous thought, "I must share with my son Teacher's new article no matter what." Her righteous thought resulted in something unexpected. Just as she and her son stood up, some people behind them began to fight. The sudden loud noise caught everyone's attention. Practitioner A used the opportunity to quickly recite Teacher's article to her son three times. Just as it says in "The Master-Disciple Bond" in Hong Yin II , "When disciples have ample righteous thoughts, Master has the power to turn back the tide."
