(Clearwisdom.net) Editor's note: Over the course of the 12-year persecution of Falun Dafa in China, the Chinese Communist Party has deceived many people with its lies and slander, causing them to have misunderstandings about and turning them against Falun Dafa. In this environment of persecution, it is a major breakthrough for a person in China to understand the true situation and openly declare his or her belief in the goodness of Dafa. Many people have received good returns upon siding with goodness and coming to recognize the evil nature of the communist regime. This is one such story.

I work as a dishwasher in a cafeteria. One day in mid-April, I saw some dirt under the water spout, so I bent down to clean it up. I heard a cracking sound in my spine and I felt a severe pain. As I could no longer stand up, my co-workers came and pulled me out from under the spout. I was in a fetal position. Someone present said, “Hurry and recite 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'” Without any hesitation, I started reciting those words. To my surprise, the pain immediately lessened, and I could stand up.

My company sent me home in a vehicle. When I got home, the pain started up again and I could no longer stand straight. I went to the hospital the next morning. There were 72 other spine-dislocation patients, but mine was the worst. The doctor asked me to raise my head and pushed my chin up. At the time I was bent over so much that my head was almost touching the floor. The CT results showed that the injury was very severe: three sections of my spine were dislocated. The doctor gave me a prescription for drugs and informed me there was really wasn't any better solution other than letting it slowly recover by itself.

A friend referred me to a private clinic that had an effective folk prescription for treating lumbar problems. I went and spent a lot of money, but saw no real improvement. I spent another three days at home, and my daughter had to stay home with me because I could not take care of myself. On the fourth day, I asked my daughter to take me to the company's staff dorms, because they have free meals there and I wouldn't have to cook myself.

I saw a co-worker who practices Falun Gong the next day. When she saw me she was a bit surprised, and said, “I heard someone asked you to recite 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' and you were able to stand up straight when it happened. How come you are still like this? Have you been reciting those words since then?” I thought for a little and said, “That's true. At the time it was immediately a lot better. Then how did it get worse again? Oh, because I was very busy going to the hospitals and forgot about reciting them.”

She then told me with much patience, “You need to recite these words with respect and sincerity. You need to recite them without thinking about other things so that each character can appear in front of your eyes. Then you will be well soon.” She also told me that she reads news on dongtaiwang.com (a website for helping people in China to break through the Internet blockade) and around the world and that there are many cases of illnesses being cured by people reciting, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I was touched by her sincerity.

In the two days that followed, I sincerely recited “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” It was indeed miraculous! Not only was my spine cured, but the nervous insomnia as well as black spots in my eyes, which both have been bothering me for a long time, were also cured. I went to the hospital to be re-examined. I asked the doctor whether he remembered me. He thought for a little and said, “Yes, you were the worst case of lumbar dislocation. How did you get better so quickly?”

When I met the Falun Gong practitioner again, I was very happy and thanked her again and again. She said, “It's Falun Gong's Teacher who saved you. You really should thank him!”

I went back to work on the sixth or seventh day after I first got hurt. On April 30, there was a city-wide race walking competition for 10,000 people. The CEO, several employees, and I participated in it. I was pretty close to the front of the pack with several young employees from my company. The CEO was worried about my injury and suggested that I should walk a bit slower. I reassured him, “Don't worry! I'm aware of my situation. I'm constantly reciting 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'” I was reciting the phrases for all 10 miles, and my legs felt very light, as if I was walking on clouds. I didn't feel tired at all.

Now I can no longer be separated from these words “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They have become part of my everyday life, and I recite them every day. Previously, I had a lot of trouble in my daily life and I was always worried. Now the difficulties that I encounter all seem to get resolved quickly, as if someone is helping me all the time. I truly thank Falun Gong's Teacher, Mr. Li Hongzhi, for saving me from suffering and giving me good health.
