Compassionate Master Saved Me from Paralysis
(Clearwisdom.net) I am 43 years old, and I started practicing Falun Gong in December 2006. At that time I was afflicted with paralysis. Compassionate Master saved my life.
I had a stroke and could not see clearly. I couldn't go out into the sunshine or talk, either. I could not take care of myself. I had spent over 100,000 yuan for medical care. However, my health just became worse and worse.
My parents are both Falun Gong practitioners. One day, my mom came to visit me. She said, “Only Dafa can save your life. Do you believe it?” I agreed. Then I asked my husband to take me to my mom's home.
I had no feeling in the right side of my body, so I could not do the exercises. My mom asked me to listen to Master's lectures in Jinan City. Three days later, I regained some movement. My mom said, “Master is taking care of you. You can just stay here and do the exercises with us.” I agreed and continued listening to Master's lecture series. I finished listening to the nine tapes in three days.
Three months later, I could sit up straight. My mom began to teach me how to do the exercises. However, I could not sit steadily. My mom put some covers around me so that I could keep sitting for a long time. After two months, I was able to sit steadily by myself. Then my mom taught me how to meditate, and I sat in the half-lotus position.
In May 2007 my mom said, “Today is Master's birthday. You'd better try to sit in the full-lotus position.” I succeeded in sitting in the full-lotus position. Although it hurt, I felt very happy because I knew that Master was helping me eliminate my karma.
Shortly thereafter, I could see better, and I was able to speak. But it was still very difficult for me to read Zhuan Falun. Initially, I followed my mom and read the book sentence by sentence. I read Zhuan Falun twice in one month. Then one day, my mom's mouth was full of blisters. She said, “Master is giving me a hint that I do not have to teach you to read.” I replied, “All right. I can read by myself.” The next day, my mom's blisters disappeared.
Initially, I was very slow and had trouble recognizing each word. Therefore, I could only read two paragraphs a day. My mom said, “If you persist in reading, a miracle will happen.” I continued reading and doing the exercises, and I could read faster and speak more clearly. I did not need to wear glasses while I was reading. I used to not be able to see without them. Now I can read Zhuan Falun in a week.
Every morning, my parents and I did the exercises together. I meditated for an hour and a half. I relied on the bed to hold me up to do the second and third exercises. Then we studied the Fa together. In the afternoon, I studied Master's lectures. I spent roughly five hours a day studying the Fa. I have experienced big changes both mentally and physically. I feel very happy and comfortable. I can walk and go upstairs now. I am also able to eat by myself. I know that it is Master that helped me and saved my life.
I used to feel unbalanced in my heart and always cried by myself. Now I feel very comfortable.
“But in reality, what human society takes to be truths are, from the perspective of the cosmos, inversions of truth; when humans go through hardship and suffer it is so that they may pay off karma and thereby have happiness in the future.” (“The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be”)
I will be more diligent and get rid of attachments as soon as possible. I will listen to Master and be a true practitioner.
