Turning Misfortune into a Good Thing
(Minghui.org) While I was on the way back from sending forth righteous thoughts for a fellow practitioner, a motorized tricycle suddenly hit me from behind, knocking me to the ground, even though I was moving at a good speed. The driver must have been speeding. The tricycle continued quite a distance before it could stop. I thought of “the Indestructible Adamantine Body” (Zhuan Falun) while lying on the ground.
Since my cultivation began in 1998, my body has become stronger and stronger. I never need to take medicine or go to the hospital. I told myself, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, my body is indestructible, and no one can damage my body. I did the right thing to send forth righteous thoughts for a fellow practitioner. The old forces must be interfering with me. This is not allowed by Master, so the interference will not work.”
I stood up quickly, and did not feel anything wrong, but the basket hanging in front of my bike was smashed. The things in the basket were scattered all over. The bike was bent. The driver saw I was okay. He helped to pick up my things from the ground. I thought he must have some urgent issues to handle, so I let him go. After picking up my things, I found a bike shop and got my bike fixed. I then went on my way.
After less than a month I was involved in another accident. This time a black car hit me at a sharp turn in the road. I was knocked some distance away and landed on the ground. The car stopped behind me.
I did not think of myself and just wanted to talk to them about Falun Dafa. The driver came out of the car, and helped me to get up. He wanted me to walk a little bit to see how bad I was hurt. The passenger in the car wanted me to go to a hospital for an examination. I shook my head. The driver handed money to me, but I did not take it. They became anxious, and said, “You do not go to a hospital and do not want money. How can we settle this with you! We work for the county government. We still have work to do now.”
Hearing they work for the county government, I knew what to say. I knew they must be officials and members of the CCP. I said, “You must have heard of Falun Gong.” They replied “Yes. Didn't the state outlaw Falun Gong and people cannot practice it anymore?"
I said, “I am a Falun practitioner. I still practice Falun Gong. If I did not practice Falun Gong, without Master's protection, I could not have survived this accident.” I clarified the truth to them and they both agreed to quit the CCP.
They wanted me to write down their license plate number, so I could find them if I was injured. They asked me where I lived and said they wanted to visit me tomorrow. I told them, “No need. Nothing will happen. It's Master's mercy. You are lucky to hit a Falun Gong practitioner. Master resolved the tribulations for me, and provided you the opportunity to be saved. A bad thing turned into a good thing. Everything will be resolved in a benevolent way." They put their hands together to thank Master, and said, “Good! Good! Today I really met an enlightened person!” I said goodbye to them again, and they left slowly.
Thank you, Master! You resolved this tribulation for me. During the over ten years of my cultivation, I have passed various tribulations, some big, and some small. Sometimes I can do well, sometimes not so well. But I am determined with the thought “Be resolute cultivating Dafa, the mind unstirred” (“True Character is Revealed”, Hong Yin Vol. II ).
I knew the fact that I could make it through today is all because of Master's protection. Only true practitioners can sense what Master bears for us. I could not repay Master's grace. I will get rid of all my human attachments, and cultivate like when I first began. Following Master and catching up with the Fa rectification process, I will do well with the three things. I will make sure I do well with each step, and complete the mission of assisting Master in Fa rectification.
