Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Changed My Life
(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Dafa for the past nine years. With Master keeping me and my family safe, I have experienced many miracles. I am so grateful to Dafa and Master.
In 2006 at the age of 54, I had chronic stomach problems, Meniere's syndrome, arterial blockage in the brain, partial spinal dislocations, poor blood supply to the brain, a throat infection, and skin issues. I had tried different drugs but nothing worked. My quality of my life was so poor that I then got depressed.
A former colleague came to visit me and told me about Falun Dafa. She said it could improve my health. Heavily influenced by the negative propaganda about Falun Dafa, I was scared and refused her suggestion. She said I could practice in private.
The following day she returned and offered to help me purchase a copy of Zhuan Falun. I was still frightened, so I talked to my family about it later that day. They wanted me to be healthy and supported the idea of me practicing, so I started to read the book.
About six months later I noticed how much faster and easier it was to walk home. And climbing steps was easier, too. At home I started to think about other changes I'd experienced recently. My back and limbs were no longer stiff and numb, and I was much more flexible. My skin wasn't itchy and red even in the June heat.
I know it sounds incredible, but it was all true. Without spending a penny on treatment or drugs I became totally healthy. My family witnessed this, and they, too, became Falun Dafa practitioners.
I became a good and healthy person because of my belief in the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
A Car Accident
One my way to the grocery store in November 2013, I was hit by a car. I fell on my back and passed out briefly. When I came to, I tried to roll over so I could get up. It took a couple tries, but I finally did it. Then I was too weak to stand. I cried out to Master with all my heart, “Master, save me! Please save me!” My heart and voice seemed very weak.
I kept trying and finally cried out, “Master, save me!” My voice woke up the driver of the car that hit me and his wife. He ran up to me and said, “I will save you.”
In a weak voice I said to him, “Not you, my master, my master will save me. I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner.” His wife said, “Let's go to the hospital!” But I refused and said not worry because my master would save me.
I told them I would not ask anything of them, that I just wanted help getting home. Still unable to speak clearly, I pointed the way to my home.
I sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to save me as they helped me to my home. Once there, the wife told my daughter that I was in shock. She didn't talk about the accident for fear that they would be asked for money. My daughter assured them that we were Falun Dafa practitioners who would not ask anything of them and that her father would be okay.
I could see the driver was still very nervous, so I told him not to worry and to sit down and have something to drink. Again I told him, “I will be fine, because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and my master always protects me. He protects you, too. Withdrawing from the CCP and its organizations is the way to a bright future.”
The couple knelt down in front of me to show their respect and gratitude. I said, “You do not need to do that. We should show our respect to Master Li Hongzhi, who saved us.” They were very moved. With tear-filled eyes they held my hands and said, “How can you be so kind?”
I replied, “My master has taught us practitioners to be good people. He told us to consider others before ourselves. You didn't mean to hit me. Everyone makes mistakes.” I gave them each a Falun Dafa amulet and told them to remember to repeat “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They both responded, “Falun Dafa is good! Thank you, Master Li!”
All three of us were quite emotional. I said, “Master saved all of us today. For you, it's not only about saving money you might have had to pay for the accident …”
The driver interrupted: “I would also have had to pay a ticket for causing the accident. After all, it was my fault.” I then reminded them that their car was still in the street where the accident took place, because they had walked me home.
Holding my hands, the wife said, “You are so fortunate!” I replied, “Yes, nothing is broken or bleeding. Master has shouldered my sufferings for me. All is well.”
The driver noticed the tire marks on my clothes and asked, “Is there anything at all I can do for you?” I answered, “I understand your concern, but rest assured that I will never come to you for money. I am a Dafa practitioner. I don't need anything from you, but I do have two requests.
"First I would like you to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which will actually save you.” He said “No problem.”
I continued, “We Falun Gong practitioners like to tell people about Falun Dafa and the truth about the Communist Party. Since your work involves planning wedding receptions, my second request is that you might give me the opportunity to come talk to people at these occasions.”
He said that it was a good idea and definitely something he could arrange for me to do. We said our goodbyes and they left.
This accident happened five months ago, and word of it has spread throughout the community. That man indeed contacted me about the weddings he plans and I have been working with him on spreading the good news of Dafa.
