A Non-practitioner: Saved by Knowing the Truth
(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'm a farmer in Huanghua City, Hebei Province. My father is a Falun Gong practitioner. Although I do not practice Falun Dafa myself, I read Dafa truth-clarification pamphlets whenever I come across them. I often carry a “Falun Dafa is good” amulet (1) with me. I have benefited quite a lot in the past several years because I know the truth of Falun Dafa. Here I am simply listing three occurrences to express my appreciation of Falun Dafa and its founder, Master Li Hongzhi. I would like to sincerely share these occurrences with my friends and other kind people.
In May of this year our neighbors were repairing the street next to their front door. With the help of several friends, I drove a small farm tractor to help transport the soil. When the tractor was climbing to the top of the river levee, the engine suddenly gave out. The tractor rolled down the dam, which was more than 10 meters high. The engine and all of the passengers were thrown from the tractor. I hit the ground, rolled for quite a distance, and was knocked weary. When I gained my senses, I calmed myself and sat up. Immediately, I noticed the Falun Dafa amulet on my chest. I knew that the Master of Falun Dafa had protected me. My friends came over and saw that I was completely fine. They all proclaimed, “This is amazing! You are protected by Buddhas and Gods!”
This July, my village experienced a tornado, which is very rare for our area. Large trees were left uprooted in its path, some snapped in half. Four farms were completely demolished. My family's pig farm is built with lightweight foam boards, and even though it was very near the path of the tornado, it remained intact. The entire village was in amazement. Some said, “Falun Gong practitioners are kind. They have heaven's protection.” One non-practitioner who knew the truth said, “This is the power of Dafa.” He circled around the village on his tricycle shouting, “Falun Dafa is good!”
On September 2, four-year-old Li Mingxuan fell on a broken beer bottle while playing with friends. His subclavian vein (a major vein connected to the jugular) was severed and blood began gushing out, leaving him in critical condition. When he was sent to the county hospital, they refused to take him due to the difficulty of operating near the clavicle of such a small child. The family then took him to the Beijing Children's Hospital. While the doctor was examining the wound, blood began to gush again. The doctor said that he had no experience treating such a case and that there was very little hope for a successful operation. The doctor recommended that the boy instead be taken to a specialty hospital. After being turned away from the Anzhen, Fuwai, and Concord hospitals, the boy was eventually admitted to Shiji Hospital.
Li's family was desperate, hopeless, and heartbroken as we all traveled several hundred kilometers to Beijing. Then, a Falun Gong practitioner called on the phone, saying, “Falun Dafa is good. Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” We were all reciting these phrases on our way to the hospital and asked the Master of Dafa to help the child.
As a result, we were blessed with a miracle. The doctor examined the wound and found that the bleeding had stopped, and the vein had recovered on its own. The family burst into joyful tears. The boy's uncle said, “It's like a dream! It's so amazing!” I realized that knowing Falun Dafa is a true blessing!
Our appreciation for Dafa and its Master is beyond words!
