Taking a Divine Path Is Utterly Different from Following a Human Path
(Minghui.org) There was a couple whose wife practiced Falun Dafa, but her husband did not. One night, the wife took her older sister on a bicycle to another village to distribute materials with information about the persecution of Falun Gong. On the way, a scooter suddenly came out of nowhere and hit them head-on. The driver of the scooter and the scooter landed on the practitioner, while her sister was unharmed.
The man pulled the scooter off of her, but she couldn't move and was in serious pain. She thought, “I'll be fine because I'm a true practitioner and doing the most righteous thing.” She silently repeated “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and asked Teacher for help.
The man and her sister tried to help her up, but the pain was too much and she realized that her lower back had been severely injured. The man was very worried and nervous. She remembered what Teacher said, that a practitioner must think of others first, no matter what the situation. The man could have been in a hurry to get somewhere important and didn't intend to hurt her. She told him that she was fine and that he could go.
The man left, but it was still a long way to the village where they were headed. The sister didn't know how to ride a bike, so they decided to distribute the truth clarification materials to nearby residents. The practitioner could barely walk at first due to the pain, but she didn't want to give up, and this one thought saved her. She was suddenly able to straighten her back and even stretch it. She then rode for about 14 miles carrying her sister on the bike.
The next day, the practitioner did her regular chores and the Falun Dafa exercises. Her family never realized how badly she'd been injured.
This practitioner's husband had an accident some time after hers. He sustained a compression fracture in his lower spine. The surgery was quite expensive, and he was bedridden for over three months. He got angry whenever he felt that he wasn't being adequately cared for. He couldn't sleep well at night and was in intense pain. He was finally able to walk, yet the rehabilitation hurt even more. A year later, he had to undergo a secondary surgery to have the titanium pins and plates in his lower back removed.
During his hospitalization, his practitioner wife had an X-ray taken of her lower back, as evidence of Falun Dafa's miraculous healing power for her husband, hoping that he would choose to become a practitioner. The X-ray image showed that she'd suffered the same severe injury as her husband - a compression fracture of the first lumbar vertebra. It was the same injury in the same place as his, but different beliefs lead to different outcomes.
