Returning to My Original True Self, Knowing that I Am Protected by Master
(Clearwisdom.net) My mother-in-law, who lived in the countryside, began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. She told me several times to learn Falun Dafa by practicing it with her. I didn't believe in it, so I ignored her suggestion. However, the changes I saw in her after she began practicing Falun Dafa were huge. She used to take lots of medicine to treat her diseases, and she had a very bad temper. After she began practicing Falun Dafa, she became healthy without taking a single pill. She also became tolerant and optimistic.
Returning to My Original, True Self
I felt curious about the books my mother-in-law read. What were they about? How could they change her so much? In the first lunar month of 1998, I picked up one of her books, Lecture in Sydney, and started to read it. She came in and said, “Let me play some music for you.” I was attracted to it and had never heard such beautiful music. I couldn't help shedding tears while listening.
She asked me why I was crying. I said, “The music said to me, 'Wake up! Wake up! What else can't you let go of?' I also saw that the author of this book is alone on a beach dragging a big ship with great effort.” She said, “A fellow practitioner said that people with good enlightenment quality can really enlighten to some things. Maybe you have good enlightenment quality.” After finishing reading Lecture in Sydney, I read through Zhuan Falun. I knew right away that Zhuan Falun was a genuine cultivation book.
When I visited my mother-in-law again early in 1999, I had a strong will to practice cultivation, so I asked her to teach me how to do the Falun Gong exercises. The morning after I got there, I woke up at 4:00 a.m. I got up and was about to go to do the exercises at the nearby practice site. However, I was thinking it was too early and cold, and I could go the following day instead. I lied back down in bed. Later, after I got up, I felt very upset and was determined to go there the next day.
The next day, I woke up again at 4:00 a.m.. I got up but then lied down again. Suddenly, I saw a big red sun rising slowly in front of me. The sun said to me, “Time is up. You should get up.” I said to it in my heart, “I felt very cold just now when I was getting up. I'll get up after I warm up.” At that moment, Master's Law Body showed up by my bed and called my name. Although my name is just two words, I had never heard anyone calling my name in such a compassionate, dignified, kind, and cherishing tone. I can't exactly describe it with words. With excitement, I hurried to get up, put on my clothes, and walked towards the practice site.
While still far from the practice site, I could hear the exercise music and Master's voice on the audio instructions. Again, I couldn't help shedding tears. I said in my heart, “I've finally found the way back home.” Since then, I have truly walked on the path of returning to my original, true self.
Protected by Master While in Danger
One time when I was riding a bicycle to a fellow practitioner's house, a motorcycle suddenly came straight towards me at a very high speed and hit me. I was thrown up into the air and then slammed to the ground. I stood up and looked at myself. Except that my pants were torn in one place, I was not hurt at all. If it were a non-practitioner, the injuries would be much more serious. I knew that Master had saved my life.
On another occasion on a summer morning in 2009, I rode a motorcycle to deliver some food for my sister. There were only a few people walking on the street, so I rode my motorcycle very fast. Suddenly, a car ahead of me began to back up at a very high speed. There wasn't enough time for me to stop the motorcycle and I crashed into the back of the car. The strong collision threw me up in the air. I flew over the car and fell onto the ground on the other end of the car.
My hands were bleeding badly, turning my white scarf red. But I didn't feel pain at all, nor did I hurt myself in any other area of my body. Master had saved me again.
Two people got out of the car. They were very scared and asked me if I was alright. I said to them: “I'm fine. I'm a Dafa practitioner, Master is protecting me. Master teaches us to be considerate of others, and I know that you didn't hit me on purpose, so I won't ask for any money from you.”
They insisted on taking me to repair my motorcycle. Before they left, they also insisted on giving me 100 yuan, but later on, I asked my friends to return the money to them.
In the past few years, I have experienced miracles. By witnessing the wonderfulness and dignity of Dafa, I have become more determined in practicing Dafa. Thank you Master for offering me salvation.
