With Righteous Thoughts, Miracles Happen
(Minghui.org) Before I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, I suffered from many physical problems, including inflammation of the fallopian tubes and ovaries, arthritis, migraines, and severe neck problems. I visited many doctors, but medications did not help. After I started practicing Falun Dafa, the ailments disappeared within about six months.
Through studying Dafa, I know how to live according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and I have witnessed miracles that occur when Dafa disciples have righteous thoughts.
Master Held the Bus for Me
The persecution was very severe in the winter of 2002. Practitioners in our rural area could not get any truth-clarification materials or Master's new lectures. I was very worried, and I contacted a fellow practitioner from whom I would get materials.
I went to meet the practitioner by shuttle bus and the got materials. I waited for the bus to return for over four hours, but then a man told me that the shuttle bus had made a detour and left an hour earlier. He suggested that I take a taxi to a nearby bus station and try to find a bus to get back home.
I was able to get a taxi to the station, but we became stuck in traffic. I then saw the shuttle bus right in front of us and switched to the bus. The driver closed the door, and the traffic began to flow. I returned home and gave the updated materials to local practitioners.
I enlightened that under Master's care, the bus was stopped for an hour until I could get on. I thank you, Master.
Enduring the Heat with Master's Help
I was held at a detention Center in 2003 and was ordered to memorize the detention center rules. I did not comply. The guard punished me by forcing me to stand outside under the baking sun. I was sweating profusely. A kind inmate suggested that I use my jacket to block the sun. I followed his suggestion, but I became even hotter.
Then I heard Master's voice, “Let's try to put down your fans.” I followed Master’s hint, put down my jacket and felt a cool breeze. The guard appeared and ordered me to eat. I told him, “If I have to memorize the rules so that I can eat, I’d rather not eat.” The guard said, “Okay. Eat first.” After that exchange, guards no longer tried to force me to memorize the rules.
Withdrawing the Three Statements
When I was just held at a woman's forced labor camp in 2003, I was told to sign the three statements. I refused and was forced to stand for three days and nights. On the third day, I was almost unconscious, my feet were severely swollen, and under this duress I signed the statement to end the torture. I was then no longer forced to stand and was assigned to work.
I was regretful, felt like I had fallen into a deep abyss and cried continuously. I gradually was able to shift my thoughts to Master's mercy and the beauty of Falun Dafa. I decided to withdraw the three statements and would never again acknowledge those agreements.
Once, over eighty practitioners were forced to watch a video that slandered Falun Dafa and read an article by Wang Jindong, one of the main participants in the staged Tiananmen Square self-immolation. Everyone was required to share her understanding. The head guard asked me as to speak first, and I asked Master to strengthen me. “Dafa does not allow one to kill a life,” I said. “Nor does it allow one to commit suicide. I believe a genuine Falun Dafa practitioner wouldn’t do so. This incident was fabricated.”
The head guard became very angry and demanded, “What do you mean by that? Have you not signed your three statements? Aren't you stepping on two boats at the same time?”
I thought it was a great opportunity to speak out: “I regret doing so. I was forced to sign.” Other practitioners looked worried about my safety.
“Regret?” said the head guard. “Do you dare to withdraw your three statements in front of all of us?”
“Yes.” I replied. He did not expect that I would be so determined and he was speechless. He said angrily, “Wait and see how I deal with you!” Then he left the room and slammed the door behind him.
Later, everyone said that I would be in trouble. However, I did not feel scared and was very calm because I had spoken what I wanted to say. The head guard never again mentioned the incident, as if it had been erased from his memory. Master wrote:
“If thoughts are righteous,evil will collapse” (“What's to fear?” Hong Yin Vol. II)
Master Saved My Life When Disaster Struck
There has been a tidal wave of lawsuits against Jiang Zemin, the orchestrator of the persecution, since May. After discussing the lawsuits with local practitioners, I realized that these lawsuits are a good opportunity to clarify the truth to people and to save them. Because most practitioners in rural areas do not know how to complete the necessary documents to sue Jiang due to limited education, I went to their homes at night to help them complete the forms and detail the persecution they have endured.
I was working during the day and was very busy; I neglected Fa study and sending righteous thoughts. I had developed an attachment to completing tasks, but was not yet aware of it,. The old forces took advantage of my shortcoming.
I was riding a motorcycle to go work in a field one day. While passing an alley, a taxi sped out towards me at full speed. I could not avoid the taxi, was hit and thrown more than six feet in the air. The back of my skull slammed into the concrete pavement and my legs because numb. I saw two gushes of blood spurt out of my nose. I cried out, “Falun Dafa is good. Master please rescue me.”
Immediately, the bleeding stopped. My relatives who were there were astonished and thought I was dying. I later had a physical examination and was fine except for a fractured leg. They said it was a miracle because I was almost sixty and still survived such a collision. I know it was Master who protected me and gave me a second life. My leg recovered very fast. I also thank the many local practitioners who held righteous thoughts, which helped me pass the test.
While looking back over my eighteen years of cultivation, there have been challenges throughout. However, Master never left me. Without protection from Master, I would not have been able to cultivate. I am still ashamed that I have not been diligent enough and failed to meet Master's expectations. I will closely follow Master in the future, cultivate diligently and do the three things well.
