Having the Right Thought in a Moment of Life and Death
(Minghui.org) When someone faces a life and death situation, no human being can do much about it. When I was in such a situation, my faith in Falun Dafa saved me.
I am 55 years old and work for a company in Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province. In my job I have to move goods from a large truck. I would like to talk about the following miracle that happened to me.
On July 2, 2013, I was told to move bundles of steel reinforcement bars from a large truck. I had to hang each bundle onto the hook of a crane that was placed in front of the truck. I fastened the hook to the steel cable, which held a six-ton bundle. The fellow who directed the movement of the crane blew a whistle, which signaled that it was time to lift the bundle. When the bundle had been raised about a meter, the cable gave way and the steel bars fell down and pushed me all the way to the guardrail of the truck. Before I lost consciousness, I said to myself, “Falun Dafa is good.” This thought saved me.
Other workers at the scene climbed up the truck and called my name. They all thought that I must have died. But I was still alive and able to sense what they were doing.
They were overjoyed to see that I was still alive, and one of them said, “He should have died, but he is still alive because his wife practices Falun Dafa. People say that the entire family is blessed if one of them practices Falun Dafa.”
I was taken to the intensive care unit of the city hospital. A doctor said that I had two broken ribs and several deep cuts, but was otherwise alright. My co-workers and the doctor were quite surprised. They said, “This is a miracle. We should have our family members practice Falun Dafa.” I told them, “You only need to frequently recite, 'Falun Dafa is good!'”
I did not stay in the hospital. Instead went home and stayed in bed for seven days. After that I was able to take care of myself again. I did not ask my company for any compensation, either, because I understand what my wife has told me that this is a better way to behave.
